y, infantry, or anywhere — on land or water — on full or half rations, or such as the country can furnish — well clad or not — so long as we can wield a weapon of any sort, and one of the vile horde can be found to raise a hand against our flag or dispute our right to freedom and separate nationality. Urged by no less sacred considerations than the "Sires of '76" we also "pledge our lives, our fortunes, and our sacred honor" for compliance with above obligation or enlistment. For the information of all Yankeedom I will mention that the raids have not interfered with the commissariat of the army, as we had enough rations on hand. I regret to inform your readers that Lieut.-Gen. A. P. Hill is quite sick, and incapacitated for command. His corps is now commanded by Major-General Anderson. Yesterday was the first day since Monday that any Richmond papers were received, and, as may be supposed, they created a sensation, especially Dahlgren's plans and purposes.
Colonel Dahlgren. The local columns of the city papers, or of most of them, yesterday morning, made reference to the interment of the body of this dead Federal officer, and intimated that it was intentionally so put away as not to be found any more. This it was inferred was considered a well merited disposal of the last of eir virtues for the admiration and emulation of future generations. Why may we not derive a beneficial lesson from a monument of an opposite character ? Suppose Dahlgren to be buried in a prominent place, and that a stone should be set up over it simply and briefly stating that there he was and who he was. It would be a monument en passing the spot, would derive fresh courage and renewed determination to defend their country and their homes as they contemplated the last resting place of the man who led on a band that came to burn their city and to butcher her people.

They doubtless did "steal, take, and feloniously carry away" from noncombatant citizens some two or three hundred horse; but from our soldiers in arms they captured none. It is literally true that they burnt three flouring mills owned by private citizens, and grinding not on Government account, but for private citizens. That they succeeded in diverting attention from Kilpatrick is true; but that this is all they sought to accomplish is disproved by the papers found on Dahlgren, and by the statements they made to citizens whom they captured and afterwards released. To these latter they said that their object was to burn the bridges over the Rivanna, destroy the stores at Charlottesville, push on to the canal, and finally meet Kilpatrick in Richmond. This latter part of their programme Gen Lee frustrated.

The Major General commanding begs leave to tender to Major General Hampton and his command his sincere thanks for their cooperation in following up the enemy, and their gallant assault upon his camp at Atlee's Station on Tuesday night, in which the enemy's entire force was stampeded and completely routed, leaving in the hands of Gen. Hampton many prisoners and horses. Lastly, the conduct of the Home Guard of King and Queen county, and of Captain McGruder's squadron of the 42d battalion Virginia cavalry, who, in conjunction with small detachments of furloughed men, under Capt. Fox and Lieut. Pollard, of the cavalry of the A. N. V., attacked the retreating column of Col. Dahlgren--killing the leader and capturing nearly one hundred prisoners, with negroes and horses — deserves public acknowledgment. By command of Major General Elzey. T. O. Chestney, A. A. G.
