he corps to conduct Ewell's trains west of the mountains, while the rest of the corps came by the shortest route to General Lee's headquarters. Accordingly I had my division ranged alongside of the road to Gettysburg by eight o'clock on the 1st of July, in the order of march, and had not been long in place before Johnson's division appeared. After it had passed I went to Major Fairfax, of General Longstreet's staff, and asked if I should follow the troops or wait until Ewell's train had pasthis, I will, with your permission, read a short account of an assault made by A.

On the morning of the 1st of July moved my brigade from its camp, near Fayetteville, Pennsylvania, in the direction of Gettysburg. Between 4 and 5 o'clock P. M. the brigade reached a position near Gettysburg, where it remained until next morning. About seven o'clock on the m

ndous struggle. Disclaiming any intention to detract in the least from the glory won on that day by the gallant Virginia division, or its heroic commander, who had then been for more than twenty years one of my most valued friends, I may be permitted to say that some injustice has been done to the division commanded by General Pettigrew. As colonel of the Thirteenth Alabama infantry, I was attached to Archer's brigade of Heth's division. That brigade opened the battle on the morning of July 1st, and during the fighting which immediately ensued General Heth was wounded, and the command of the division devolved upon Brigadier-General Pettigrew. General Archer was captured, and I succeeded him in command of the brigade. During the forenoon of the 3d, while our division was resting in line behind the ridge and skirt of woods which masked us from the enemy, Generals Lee, Longstreet and A. P. Hill rode up, and, dismounting, seated themselves on the trunk of a fallen tree some fiifty

the skirmish with the enemy, I formed my brigade in line around the burning buildings and resisted the progress of the flames until they were checked. Leaving Wrightsville on the morning of the 29th, I sent the cavalry under my command to burn all the bridges (fourteen in number) on the railroad leading to York, to which place I marched my brigade and rejoined the division, from which we had been separated since June 26th. Marching thence to Gettysburg, we participated in the battle of July 1st. In accordance with orders from Major-General Early, I formed my brigade in line of battle on the right of the division--one regiment, the Twenty-sixth Georgia, having been detached to support the artillery under Lieutenant-Colonel Jones. About 3 o'clock P. M. I was ordered to move my brigade forward to the support of Major-General Rodes' left. The men were much fatigued from long marches, and I therefore caused them to move forward slowly, until within about three hundred yards of the

Report of Brigadier-General Wilcox of the battle of Gettysburg. headquarters Wilcox's brigade, Bunker Hill, Va., July 17, 1863. Major Thomas S. Mills, Assistant Adjutant-General: Sir — I respectfully submit the operations of my brigade in the recent engagements with the enemy near Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, in the following report: The division having encamped for three days at Fayetteville, on the morning of July 1st moved forward on the Chambersburg and Gettysburg turnpike; at two and a half P. M. came within sight and hearing of a distant artillery fire between our own and the enemy's forces near the latter place. The division filed off to the right of the road and halted in the woods for an hour; then, resuming the march towards Gettysburg, one and a half miles, my brigade filed off to the right of the road in a perpendicular direction, and marched in this direction near one mile; and being joined by a battery of artillery, the command halted and remained here during

rance. Whole regiments slept in the saddle, their faithful animals keeping the road unguided. In some instances they fell from their horses overcome with physical fatigue and sleepiness. Reaching Dover, Pennsylvania, on the morning of the 1st of July, I was unabled to find our forces. The most I could learn was that General Early had marched his division in the direction of Shippensburg, which the best information I could get seemed to indicate as the point of concentration of our troops. The whereabouts of our army was still a mystery; but during the night I received a dispatch from General Lee in answer to one sent by Major Venable from Dover, on Early's trail, that the army was at Gettysburg, and had been engaged on this day (1st July) with the enemy's advance. I instantly dispatched to Hampton to move ten miles that night on the road to Gettysburg, and gave orders. to the other brigades with a view to reaching Gettysburg early next day, and started myself that night.

o matter by whom the original subscription was obtained. We find that where subscriptions are originally obtained by agents, there is a strong disposition to wait until the agent can call again before renewing the subscription. This is very well where we have a local agent, for in that case the agent is sure to call. But a large part of our list of subscribers is obtained by traveling agents, who cannot go back promptly to call on parties when their subscriptions expire. E. g., on the 1st of July about three hundred and fifty of our subscriptions expired; we have not been able to send an agent after them, and very few have as yet responded to our postal card notification. We beg that our friends will help us to secure new subscribers, and to induce old ones to renew. And we are very anxious to secure reliable agents in every community. We can afford to pay liberal commissions to efficient agents, and we beg that our friends will help us to obtain such agents. The army of
