s: Abraham joined a volunteer company, and, to his own surprise, was elected captain of it. He says he has not since had any success in life which gave him so much satisfaction. He went to the campaign, served near three months, met the ordinary hardships of such an expedition, but was in no battle. Official documents furnish some further interesting details. As already said, the call was printed in the Sangamo Journal of April 19. On April 21 the company was organized at Richland, Sangamon County, and on April 28 was inspected and mustered into service at Beardstown and attached to Colonel Samuel Thompson's regiment, the Fourth Illinois Mounted Volunteers. They marched at once to the hostile frontier. As the campaign shaped itself, it probably became evident to the company that they were not likely to meet any serious fighting, and, not having been enlisted for any stated period, they became clamorous to return home. The governor therefore had them and other companies mu

lock, and General Lee's impatience again urged him to go in quest of Longstreet. After proceeding about a mile, we discovered Hood's division at a halt; it was said, waiting for MecLaws, whose division had taken a wrong direction. It was four o'clock before Longstreet was in position to attack. I here conclude a brief and I hope impartial statement, from which you may make your own deductions. Very respectfully, &c., (Signed) A. L. L. Long. Letter from General Fitz. Lee. Richland, Stafford co., Va., March 5th, 1877. Rev. J. Wm.

Upon them he expresses his convictions as follows: At present, as far as my studies of this period go, my opinion on the question is this: The m
Patriotic ladies.--In Clinton County, Ohio, there is a certain township, Richland, which has not raised a very large crop of patriotic young men, we should judge, from the proceedings of a meeting of irate females held there last week. It was stated that not more than two volunteers had been furnished by the township, and the resolutions adopted and the speeches made at the meeting referred to, not only called the patriotism but the courage of the men of Richland in question. So stung wereRichland in question. So stung were the female population by the disgraceful and unmasculine spirit manifested by the young men, especially, that seven young ladies--Miss Rachael Howe, Miss Mary Bernard, Miss Elizabeth Fristo, Miss Jennie Rowe, Miss Mary C. Clement, Miss Julia Creden, Miss Hannah McKinney--stepped forward and requested to have their names enrolled as volunteers in defence of their country and their rights, and said, as soon as they could be furnished with uniforms, they would leave their clothing to the young men

ieutenants Wade Reeves and W. B. White wounded. In the affairs from the 12th of May to 1st of July, 1864, the Twelfth lost 2 killed, 21 wounded and 11 missing—34. Major T. F. Clyburne and Lieutenant W. H. Rives were wounded. Lieutenant N. R. Bookter was killed before Petersburg. At Fussell's Mills the regiment lost 1 killed, 12 wounded and 5 missing—18. At the battle of Jones' Farm, 30th September, 1864, the regiment lost its third colonel killed in battle-Colonel Edwin F. Bookter, of Richland. Mr. Caldwell, in his History of Gregg's Brigade, pays a glowing, but justly deserved, tribute to this noble officer. He had been severely wounded at Cold Harbor, 27th June, 1862, again seriously at Manassas, 29th August, 1862, and for a third time, and as it was supposed mortally, at the Wilderness, 5th May, 1864. He survived all these to die at the head of the regiment he loved so well and which loved him so well, in that brilliant, if small, affair. The regiment lost two killed, eigh
ersigned citizens of Madison county. Virginia, believing that South Carolina will be the first to raise the standard for States-Rights and Southern liberty, against the encroachments of Northern fanaticism and Federal tyranny, do hereby tender their services to fight under her flag whenever she shall signify her wish to receive them, unless Virginia shall first require their aid. "Nov. 8th, 1860." The nominations for the State Convention in South Carolina have commenced. In Richland and Sumpter districts the candidates nominated are "all pledged to secession." In the latter district two of them are ministers of the Gospel. The excitement in Charleston continues. The Evening News of Saturday says: The first liberty pole that has ever been raised in the city, has been inaugurated to-day, amidst the smiles of lovely women, the hearty applause of men, the firing of cannon, and the sweet strains of music. Never have we seen the countenances of all express so much j
General Carter, a notorious Tennessee renegade. The other came from Kentucky, through Cumberland gap, and numbered eight thousand men, under General Bainbridge. They were to form a junction in Tazewell county, and then move on Saltville. On Friday, however, before getting to the Virginia line, Carter was attacked by General Vaug four miles from Carter station, on the East Tennessee and Virginia railroad, driven to the station, and there routed. The column of General Burbridge halted at Richland, in Russell county, Virginia, on Friday, and there waited the arrival of Carter. As he did not, for the best of reasons, arrive, Burbridge moved forward on Saltville, after previously starting a raiding party of five hundred cavalry to go around to Wytheville and cut the Virginia and Tennessee railroad at that point. He arrived at Saltville on Sunday, and at noon assaulted our works about three miles from the town. The assault was bloodily repulsed, and, after a brief interval, was renew
