enerally with the consent of their parents, for otherwise the boys would have been likely to have run off and enlisted anyway. The company was a pretty green one, including the captain, lieutenants, drivers and all the members of the battery; they had had little or no experience in drilling, in caring for the horses attached to the guns, and in every respect was a very crude organization. After General Lee had driven General McClellan from the gates of Richmond and began to move towards Maryland in the first campaign of invasion across the Potomac, the boy company reported to Colonel S. D. Lee, who had a battalion of three batteries of artillery, all of whom had seen service in battle. When on the march towards the battlefield of Second Manassas the boy company reported to make the fourth battery of the battalion. When the battery reported Colonel Lee was shocked that such a company of immature boys should be sent to him while on the march against the enemy. He, however, took t

St. Francis' Church Towson. In addition to his pastoral ruties, he had taken great interest in parochial schools, and was until recently superintendent of schools for the Archdiocese of Baltimore. Crowning work of life. It was at Towson that Father O'Keefe performed the crowning work of his notable life. He erected there the Catholic Church of the Immaculate Conception, a magnificent marble building, trimmed with finest brownstone, and considered by many the most beautiful church in Maryland. It was built largely out of Father O'Keefe's private purse. The interior of the walls of the building are adorned with frescoed steel panels. There are a number of fine stained glass windows, and in the front of the church a mammoth window, on which there is an artistic representation of the Reserrection of Christ. There are five beautiful marble altars. The main altar cost $20,000, and is made of the finest Italian marble. The church is of the Gothic style of architecture, and is l

d human endurance to advance further; but here the line rested, and was held through that bloody day, resisting assault after assault of the enemy. But for this terrific and successful assault on the part of Hood's Division, our left centre would have been broken, the left wing of the army turned, and the fords on the Potomac captured by the enemy, and Lee's army shut in between the Antietam and the Potomac. By members of the brigade who were engaged in nearly every battle in Virginia and Maryland, Sharpsburg, on account of its sanguinary and protracted character, has been characterized as the hardest-fought battle of the war. Two little giant Brigades. General Hood, who won his rank of major-general for gallantry on that day, speaks of this charge in the following language: Here I witnessed the most terrible clash of arms by far that has occurred during the war. Two little giant brigades of my command wrestled with the mighty force, and although they lost hundreds of their off

e Column takes it as it finds it in the Spectator, adding only the little story at the bottom. We have been furnished by one of McNeil's men, Corporal D. M. Parsons, with a complete list of Captain John H. McNeil's Partisan Rangers, which next to Mosby's Battalion, was the most noted command of scouts that operated in Virginia during the war. Many of them will be recognized as gallant Augusta and Rockingham boys. There are 187 of them, all being Virginians except nineteen, who were from Maryland, and are marked Md. in the list. Officers.

t, but many, as usual, went off foraging for something good to eat. At about 12 o'clock, I reckon, we were awakened by that very unwelcome, everlasting long roll, and our colonel, mounted on his old sorrel, riding about the men, saying, Hurry up, men! Hurry! Everything depends on being at the ford by daybreak. That word, Hurry! and Steady, men! steady! were his favorite commands (brave and true soldier he was; he ought to have been a general). It looked then as if we were going back to Maryland. About that time Leonard Taylor, of Company C, said, Boys, we are going to catch thunder to-day, for I have, been dreaming that we were in the hardest battle yet. His dream came too true, for before sunset on that day, the 17th of September, our regiment, the 32nd Virginia, had lost in killed and wounded 45 per cent. (The poor boy was afterwards killed at Second Cold Harbor.) After a hard march we reached the ford (Boteler's, just below Shepherdstown) at daybreak and crossed the Potomac,

t as far as he knew, there were no pickets in our front. I told him there were none from my command, but that I knew there were troops in our front, and I believed the enemy, but possibly General W. H. F. Lee's Brigade of Cavalry, as he had been operating with us the night before. Gloomy outlook. Mayo said that Ransom, on our left, was appealing for aid, but that in Pickett's absence no one would assume the responsibility of weakening his division. General Geo. H. Steuart (known as Maryland Steuart), the senior brigadier, refused the responsibility. I urged Mayo to throw a picket in our front; our men in the works had been on the march and battlefield continuously for forty hours, and they would sleep in the trenches. He said he thought so, too, but he feared more of an attack upon our left, as the firing from that direction was continually getting nearer and nearer. Just then a courier in great haste and much excited, rode up to Mayo; from whom he came or what was his comm
