rms of former prison friends and associates-shabbily dressed, torn, tattered and threadbare—they don't look like gentlemen. This is a matter of the slightest moment—they were my comrades in the sorsowful past and I love them. Yet I like not having to recall them in the bygone events through which they moved; hence the value of the printed roster. Here are seven Virginia officers whose names have been omitted in the list. They all embarked with the 600 on the Crescent City; they all returned to Virginia before the close of the war, and doubtless they are all now dead. Colonel Woolfolk, Orange county, Va., ranking officer of the Virginians. Major Evan Rice, Tappahannock, Va. Captain Chalkley, Chesterfield county, Va. Captain Fitzgerald, Norfolk, Va. Captain Haskins, Northern Valley of Virginia. First Lieutenant Charles R. Darracott, Sturdevant's Battery, Richmond, Va. Midshipman Leftwich, Lynchburg, Va. Respectfully, George Hopkins.

y, March 14, 1862, there assembled at the wholesale warehouse of Messrs. Crenshaw & Co., on the Basin bank, between Tenth and Eleventh streets, Richmond, Va., one of the jolliest, most rollicking, fun-loving crowd of youngsters, between the ages of 16 and 25, that were ever thrown together haphazard, composed of clerks, book-keepers, salesmen, compositors, with a small sprinkling of solid business men, from Richmond, reinforced with as sturdy-looking a lot of farmer boys from the counties of Orange, Louisa, Spotsylvania and Culpeper as one generally comes across. The occasion of the gathering was the formation of an artillery company for active service in the field, and after the usual preliminaries, an organization was soon effected, with the following officers: Captain, William G. Crenshaw. Senior First Lieutenant, James Ellett. Junior First Lieutenant, Charles L. Hobson. Senior Second Lieutenant, Andrew B. Johnston. Junior Second Lieutenant, Thorras Ellett. The battery co

The middle of August, 1862, found Jackson's Corps camped at the foot of Clark's mountain, in Orange county. Here he was joined by General Lee with Longstreet's Corps. After a few days' needed rest, the army broke camp on August 20th, and marched in the direction of Pope's army, Jackson's Corps marching over Clark's mountain and crossing the Rapidan river at Summerville Ford. As Pope had retreated behind the Rappahannock river, we made direct for that. After trying several fords along that river with the seeming intention of crossing, the morning of the 25th of August found our corps near

On the retreat from Davis' ford we passed through the wealthy counties of Fauquier, Culpeper and Orange, tarrying several days at Rappahannock station, finally reaching Orange county, Virginia, where we camped some fifteen days, and departed thence for the peninsula to join the forces of the gallant General John B. Magruder. Our brigade (Rhodes') Orange county, Virginia, where we camped some fifteen days, and departed thence for the peninsula to join the forces of the gallant General John B. Magruder. Our brigade (Rhodes') was camped near Yorktown, and a small number of our command were here first engaged in an insignificant skirmish with the enemy. While at Yorktown our term of service expired, and the regiment was reorganized by the election of W. H. Taylor, colonel; M. B. Harris, lieutenant-colonel, and W. H. Lilly, major. J. H. Capers was appointed adjutant, and E. H. McCaleb sergeant-major. Joseph E. Johnston, with his heroic army, after delaying McClellan many weeks around Yorktown, began to retreat

ia Regiment, Hunton's Brigade, Pickett's Division. I knew Comrade S. W. Paulett very well. I have made many long and weary marches with him. I don't think any troops made a longer march to reach Gettysburg than we did—namely, from Suffolk, Va., to Gettysburg battlefield, and I would like to say that the Thirty-second Virginia Regiment was at one time attached to Hunton's Brigade, and that was in the fall and winter of 1863-64. Hunton's Brigade, with the rest of the division, came from Orange county to the vicinity of Richmond about the first of October, 1863. Hunton's Brigade went to Chaffin's farm, eight miles below Richmond, and went in quarters vacated by Wise's men. In about two weeks the Eighteenth Virginia Regiment was sent to Petersburg to do provost duty in the town; at the same time we relieved the Thirty-second Virginia Regiment, who had been doing similar duty up to that time. So the Thirty-second Regiment went to Chaffin's farm and were attached to Hunten's Brigade, a

On the other hand, the interior resounded with the praise of the insurgents. On the eighth, Louisa county sent them its hearty thanks. On the ninth, Spottsylvania cordially approved their prudent, firm, and spirited conduct; and Orange county in a letter signed among others by the young and studious James Madison, a recent graduate of Princeton college, applauded their zeal for the honor and interest of the country. The blow struck in Massachusetts, they add, is a hostile attack on this and every other colony, and a sufficient warrant to use reprisal. On the eleventh, Patrick Henry set off for the May 11. continental congress; and his progress was a triumph. Amidst salutes and huzzas, a volunteer guard accompanied him t
n is the demand of the sceptic, who has no fixed belief and only wishes to be let alone; a firm faith, which is too easily tempted to establish itself exclusively, can be content with nothing less than equality. A young man, then unknown to fame, of a bright hazel eye, inclining to grey, small in stature, light in person, delicate in appearance, looking like a pallid, sickly scholar among the robust men with whom he was associated, proposed a change. He was James Madison, the son of an Orange county planter, bred in the school of Presbyterian dissenters under Witherspoon at Princeton, trained by his own studies, by meditative rural life in the Old Dominion, by an ingenuous indignation at the persecutions of the Baptists, by the innate principles of right, to uphold the sanctity of religious freedom. He objected to the word toleration, because it implied an established religion, which endured dissent only as a condescension; and as the earnestness of his convictions overcame his mod

They looked as if they had just escaped from some lager house, for the odor of defunct whiskey and other perfumes scented the ambient air around and above them, to the damage of the olfactory and extinguishment of appetite. The fact that they were nuisances, had been in the poor-house and looked as if nearly ready for another election thereto, in addition to the fact that they were dwelling "together in unity," contrary to law, determined the Mayor to detain them until he could provide suitable quarters. The Leathers family was detained, and old Leathers, the father, was informed that he could get them in quantities to suit whenever he wanted to send them back to Orange county. He showed somewhat of a disposition to leave the rest of his family if the Mayor would let the old woman go, but the Mayor would not.
