ways been prompt and faithful, and seemed much attached to me. July 11th Passed through the neat village of Rockville, and marched under a very hot sun towards Washington city. Halted about two miles from the inner fortifications, where we were exposed to a close and rapid shelling nearly all the afternoon. The men are full of surmises as to our next course of action, and all are eager to enter the city. We can plainly see the dome of the Capitol and other prominent buildings, Arlington Heights (General Lee's old home), and four lofty redoubts, well manned with huge, frowning cannon. Several 100-pound shells burst over us, but only one or two men in the entire division were hurt. All the houses in our vicinity were vacated by their inmates on our approach, and the skirmishers in front were soon in them. Many articles of male and female attire were strewn over the ground. This conduct was against orders, but a few men, led by an Italian, familiarly known as Tony, who was o

at we did say is not written, and would have been of little avail for them if spoken aloud, and not calculated to put us in pleasant relations with those above us, including what Sterne would call the recording angel. We moved once more at 9 o'clock on the morning of the 12th, the corps in the order of its divisions, followed by the artillery and trains. At Fairfax Court House we received orders to take the Columbia Pike and passing Falls Church Station to go into permanent camp on Arlington Heights. This brought us near the ground where our First Division, now comprising all that were left of the original Fifth Corps, had its station after the battle of Bull Run Second, and whence we started early in September for the Antietam campaign. A new procession of associations, farther reaching than those before, thronged our minds and spirits. We had not seen this ground since those earlier troubled days; and what had been given us to traverse since, and forms once with us, now take

urnish no incidents worthy of note in this connection. Practically the two armies remained in observation, inactive, and without definite plans. When General Scott withdrew the temporary reinforcements he had given Patterson to enable him to fight a battle, the latter once more retired to the north bank of the Potomac. For the moment military attention was directed elsewhere. McClellan was preparing his campaign in West Virginia; McDowell was strengthening the Federal occupation of Arlington Heights and Alexandria; the President and General Scott were deliberating upon possible operations against Manassas. In this interim Johnston remained in camp about Winchester, pushing his picket-line close up to the Potomac, and keeping himself well informed by scouts and spies. Meanwhile the Confederate authorities, still anxious to hold the Shenandoah Valley, and having also in view a possible junction with Beauregard at Manassas, sent forward reinforcements which raised Johnston's army
nd take command of the Army of the Potomac. General Rosecrans takes his place in command of the Army of Western Virginia. The Corps d'armes at Washington is to be instantly re-organized and increased by the addition of 100,000 men. The necessary orders have already been given.--Offers of regiments already raised are being made and accepted with such rapidity as to ensure that this will be accomplished within a few days. Large reinforcements from various directions are already on their way to Washington, orders having been telegraphed for them yesterday while the battle was in progress. The Government entertains no apprehensions whatever for the safety of the Capital. Preparations not only for defensive but also for the speedy renewal of offensive operations are going on vigorously. General McDowell has returned to his Headquarters at Arlington Heights. The regiments composing his army are resuming their positions. Most of them have already done so.--Baltimore American, July 23.

ny weeks, its officers chafing with impatience, whilst an immense National army was gathering and organizing, and drilling in front of Washington City. Johnston made his Headquarters at Grigsby's house in Centreville. From a photograph by Alexander Gardiner, of Washington City. He was compelled to content himself with Rending out scouting and foraging parties, Grigsby's House, Centreville and guerrilla bands, who sometimes approached within cannon shot of the National defenses on Arlington Heights. The physical disabilities of the Confederates alluded to, were, probably,, not the only reasons for the immobility of their army after the battle. Davis and his associates at Richmond well knew the strength of the lion of the North, which their wickedness had aroused. They had promised their dupes peaceable secession, because they thought that strength would not be put forth. They found themselves mistaken, and their cause in great peril; and they well knew, that if they should

After a months' stay in the vicinity of the Capitol, it crossed into Virginia and encamped on Arlington Heights, remaining there until March, 1862, when it went to the Peninsula. Its first battle occurred at Hanover Court House, although it participated in the Siege of Yorktown. It was assigned to Griffin's (2d) Brigade, Morell's (1st) Division, Fiat Chancellorsville; Mine Run; Totopotomoy; Weldon Railroad. notes.--Organized in Indianapolis, July 29, 1861, arriving at Washington on the 5th of August. After some service in the field it went into winter-quarters at Fort Craig, on Arlington Heights, Va., remaining there until March, 1862, when it joined in the general advance of the Army. It then formed part of Gibbon's (4th) Brigade, Hatch's (1st) Division, McDowell's Corps, a brigade which afterwards became famous as the Iron Brigade
attention to the service thus rendered by this loyal young officer. While he was thus engaged, a courier arrived with the news that Col. Montgomery was advancing with a New Jersey brigade from Falls Church, and that the retreat must be stopped, only the wagons being allowed to pass through. Some thousands of the soldiery had already got far on their way to Washington. Poor fellows! who could blame them? Their own colonels had deserted them, only leaving orders for them to reach Arlington Heights as soon as they could. A few miles further I met Montgomery swiftly pressing to the rescue, and reported the success of Lieut. Brisbane's efforts. And so I rode along, as well as my weary horse could carry me, past groups of strangling fugitives, to Fairfax, where Col. Woodbury was expecting, and guarding against, a flank movement of the enemy, and on again to Long Bridge and the Potomac. But the van of the runaway soldiers had made such time that I found a host of them at the Jerse
