dependence of the Confederate States. To Lieut. Squires, commanding, I desire especially to direct your attention: a young officer, the second time under fire, (having been in the engagement of the 18th,) he acted his part in a manner worthy of a true soldier and a brave man. He is an example rarely to be met--Lieutenants Richardson and Whittington, both with this battery in the engagement of the 18th, were in this battle, and bravely did their duty. Lieut. W. M. Owen, Adjutant, and Lieut. James Dearing, Virginia forces attached to this battalion, accompanied me. To them I am indebted for invaluable service upon the field. Frequently were they ordered to positions of great danger, and promptly and bravely did they each acquit themselves of any duty they were called upon to perform. I could mention individual instances of bravery and daring on the part of non-commissioned officers and privates, but this would be invitions where all behaved so well. In conclusion, General, I can
Army of the Potomac reported advance of the Federals--Sketches of Capt. Messrs. Lieuts. Slocomb and Dearing--the Washington Artillery--Skirmishing — Promotions. &c. [special correspondence of the Dispatch.] Fairfax, Oct. 14, 1861. Friday night it was reported that a large force of the Federals had advanced on Springfield, and were taking possession of the place in force. General Longstreet's brigade, consisting of the 1st, 7th, 11th, and 17th Virginia and 20th Georgia leans ninety-eight heavy winter overcoats which he ordered for the company as a present to them, enough to supply every man that is not already provided for. This is but a single incident of the many that have been told me by the men. Lieut. James Dearing is the third officer, a young man only twenty-one years of age, and but lately assigned to the command. He is a Virginian by birth, and was appointed a cadet to West Point in 1858, where he remained until the resignation of the Southern s

Squires; 1st Lieut, John B Richardson; 2d Lieut., Ed. Owen, (promoted from a sergeancy. for meritorious conduct during the battle of the 21st July) Second Company--Captain Rosser; 1st Lieut, C. H. Slocumb; 2nd Lieut.,-- -- Third Company--Captain M. B. Miller; 1st Lieut., J. J. Garnett, 2nd Lieut., James Dearing. Fourth Company--Captain Eshlemen, (wounded on the 18th of July;) 1st Lieut., Joe Norcum (in command;) 2nd Lieut., H. M. Battles. These are all men of marked characters, and gentlemen in every sense of the word. Major Walton is a man of powerful frame, straight and soldierly, and looks very much like the portraits of Napoleon III. He has a handsome face, regular features, blue eyes, heavy moustache, and barb d'arique, now tinged with grey. His dress, like that of all the off

The Lynchburg Artillery, formerly known as Latham's battery, now commanded by Captain James Dearing, did good service in the fight. The men fought bravely and laid many a Yankee upon the ground. Captain Dearing entered with thirty-four cannoneers, and hCaptain Dearing entered with thirty-four cannoneers, and had nineteen wounded. He also had between thirty and forty horses disabled. The 1st Lieutenant, Dickenson, had his leg broken. Captain Dearing is a brave and efficient young officer, and won his spurs on this occasion.

One of the batteries captured was the "Empire Battery" of New York, Capt. Miller. The guns were new, brass field pieces, known as the Napoleon gun, made by the American manufacturing company. The horses were all killed, but the pieces have been turned over to Capt Miller of the Washington Artillery. Col. D. O. Godwin, of the 9th Virginia, was severely wounded. The corps was badly used up.
