ently that he lost 1,200 men in getting over the line. The enemy had reached the plank road in small numbers. One of Lane's regiments was forced back to the Southside road. The enemy were seen along our captured lines and on the plank road. Lane's and Thomas' men were reformed — in all about 600-moved forward in good spirits, and recaptured the lines to the vicinity of Boisseau's house, together with the artillery in the different batteries along it. This was reported to Gen. Lee. Col. Venable, aide-de-camp to Gen. Lee, soon joined me with a message that Harris' brigade would report in a few minutes; it numbers little over 500 muskets. Heavy masses of the enemy were soon seen moving toward from their entrenched lines in a direction that crossed ours near the Carnes' house. It was useless to attempt engaging them with the force I had; Harris was, therefore, ordered toward a little beyond the Bank's house, advanced skirmishers, but with orders not to become engaged with his lin

, in the London Standard, 1870; and article on Gettysburg, Southern Review, April, 1868.) 2. Gen. Lee's papers were burned at the close of the war, and he requested, in 1865, from his officers, such information as they possessed, with the intention of preparing a narrative of his campaigns. I have a copy, received from him, of the statements furnished to him in regard to his strength at Gettysburg, by two members of his staff; Col. W. H. Taylor, his Assistant Adjutant-General, and Col. C. S. Venable, his Military Secretary. The former places the Confederate strength of all arms on that battle-field at 61,000; the latter at 55,000. 3. Out of the 68,352 men, which constituted the entire force for duty in the Department of Northern Virginia, at the end of May, according to the Confederate return, published by Swinton, Gen. Lee could hardly have taken over 60,000 with him. 4. Gen. Early's careful estimate. (See his report, Southern Magazine, September and October, 1872.)

ettysburg, based upon conversations with other officers, including the Commanding-General himself, and the perusal of official reports and histories of both sides. Among the soldiers now living, and who are accessible, and who know most about that campaign on our side, are Lieutenant-Generals Longstreet, Hood, Anderson and Early, and Major-Generals McLaws, Heth, Wilcox and Trimble; General Pendleton, chief of artillery; Generals Kemper, Lane and Scales; and Colonels Taylor, Marshall and Venable, of General Lee's staff Were I writing history, I should like to have the opinions of these officers upon this subject, from which, with the official reports in my possession, I would of course draw and write my own conclusions. Very respectfully, your obedient servant, Fitzhugh Lee. Letter from Colonel William Allan, of Ewell's staff. McDoNOUGH School, Owings' Mill, Baltimore county, Md., April 26th, 1877. Rev. J. W.

Major Scheibert's book. [We are glad to be able to give our readers the following notice of Major Scheibert's book, by so competent a critic as Colonel C. S. Venable.] La Guerre, Civile Aux Etats-Unis D'amerique: Consideree au point de vue Militaire pour les Officiers de l'armee Allemande, par I. Scheibert, Major an corps Royal des Ingenieurs Prussieus, Traduit de l'Allemande par J. Bonnecque, Capitaine du 3rue regiment du gevie. Such is the title of the French translation of Majorhat he is alive and well, having served unharmed in the campaign against Austria, which ended in the battle of Sadowa. He was badly wounded in the late war against France in the battle of Worth. He remembers warmly his comrades of the Army of Northern Virginia, and holds frequent happy reunions with Von Borcke, the big and big-hearted cavalryman who rode with Stuart, when there is much talk of their old comrades — of those still here as well as of those who have gone beyond.

r of the Southern Historical Society Papers. The letter of Colonel Venable is as follows: University of Virginia, May 11, 1875. General unrise by any portion of the army. Yours, very truly, Chas. S. Venable. Can Colonel Venable or any one else believe that General LColonel Venable or any one else believe that General Lee had formed — no definite opinion as to how he should attack the enemy until after his return at 9 A. M. on the 2nd from Ewell's line? Thalay that occurred must rest on him, and on him alone. That Colonel Venable is sincere in his opinions I do not doubt, but I think his read so loth to take the steps necessary to begin it, he again sent Col. Venable to Ewell to see whether, after viewing the position by daylight,ter threw every obstacle in the way? Doubtless, after sending Colonel Venable to Ewell, General Lee's impatience at Longstreet's opposition though he did not begin the attack until about 4 P. M.

l Report. The reunion of the Virginia division of the Army of Northern Virginia Association, on the evening of the 1st of November, was in every respect a most brilliant affair. The oration of Leigh Robinson, Esq., on The Battle of the Wilderness, was chaste, eloquent, and patriotic, and a valuable contribution to this series of historical addresses. By the way, what other army that ever existed could furnish from among its subalterns such orators as Colonel Charles Marshall, Colonel C. S. Venable, Major John W. Daniel, Captain W. Gordon McCabe, and Private Leigh Robinson? The banquet at the St. Claire hotel was presided over by the president (General W. H. F. Lee), and was a magnificent affair. We regret that we have not room for further notice of the feast of reason and flow of soul which made the occasion one of far more than ordinary interest. The officers of last year (General W. H. F.
