xpedition. January 9, 1863.—At 4 o'clock on the afternoon of to-day orders came directing us to proceed at once to the depot of the Northeastern railroad and again take the cars for Wilmington. Some demonstrations made by the enemy on the North Carolina coast had created the impression that Wilmington was in danger. We got off during the night, and had another slow and tedious trip. The train stopped for hours owing to defective engines. One stoppage was near the plantation of Mr. Wm. M. monton having been again put in charge of a portion of the line of fortifications. During the month the army intended for operations along the coast of South Carolina, Georgia and Florida was considerably reinforced. Clingman's Brigade of North Carolina troops was added to the force on James Island. It seemed to be the settled belief of the Confederate authorities that very active operations would be commenced against Charleston. On the 18th General Beauregard issued another proclamation d

nance train of the Second corps found themselves in the fork of the Rappahannock and Hazel rivers. The latter stream was past fording and there was no bridge or ferry. Behind us only a small body of scouting cavalry intervened between us and the Federal cavalry, which was supposed to be advancing from Warrenton. The proper thing to do was evidently to cross the Hazel river without delay. Looking about for some means of accomplishing this, we found an old half-rotten skiff, which two North Carolina teamsters declared they could make serviceable. Some rope was stretched across the river, and in two or three hours the little ferry-boat, which would only carry six or eight boxes of ammunition at a time, was repaired as well as we could do it, and put to work. By detailing relays of men for the purpose, the work was kept up continually all night, and early next morning all the ammunition had been safely transported to the south side of the river, except one boat-load which had been w

The attempt of some newspapers to give probability to this suggestion, by alleging that I was in bitter hostility whilst Governor of North Carolina to the administration of Mr. Davis, is based also upon a misrepresentation of the facts. Senator Vance at the same time sent to the Washington Post a copy ered it to be the duty of our people to make like sacrifices for safety and liberty. The convention referred to in the extract was the convention proposed in North Carolina in the early part of 1864, in the contest for Governor, between Mr. Holden and Governor Vance, and which had for its object to give opportunity of action to t

knew not Joseph—the very fundamental principles of the Constitution were, in her judgment, subverted—civil war, with all of its horrors, had been inaugurated, and she must choose on which side she would fight. She did not hesitate; but knowing full well that her soil would be the great battlefield, she took up the gage of battle and called on her sons to rally to her defence. From mountain-valley to the shores of her resounding seas—from Alleghany to Chesapeake—from the Potomac to the North Carolina line—the call is heard and there rush to arms at the first tap of the drum—not Hessian or Milesian mercenaries, not a band of negro-traders coolly calculating how much they could make out of a Southern Confederacy—but the very flower of our Virginia manhood, as true patriots as the world ever saw, worthy sons of sires of ‘76. And they did make a fight which illustrates some of the brightest pages of American history, and of which men at the North as well as men at the South a

ral Lee was not idle. Though cramped by his limited means and resources, both in men and appliances of war, he stood firm and unawed by the mighty hosts that confronted him. During the night of the 20th of April the Federals attacked some North Carolina pickets, drove in their reserves, laid down pontoon bridges, and crossed the river below Deep Run, near the Bernard house. The alarm was soon conveyed to Barksdale's pickets at Fernahough's house. The long roll and the alarm bell at Frederiancellorsville, engaged in a furious battle. When, however, I reached Gest's Hill on the plank road, I discovered the enemy had been checked by the Thirteenth and Seventeenth regiments, Frazier's battery from Georgia, Carloton's battery from North Carolina, and the second company of Washington Artillery, then on Lee's Hill. I saw that it was possible for my regiment to cross Hazel Run above Marye's Hill and rejoin the brigade, which move was made and accomplished. General Barksdale, as soon a
