The columns reunited at Hagerstown, and advanced thence into Pennsylvania, encamping near Chambersburg on the 27th. No report had been received that the Federal army had crossed the Potomac, and Ewell's army will probably move towards the Susquehanna by the Emmittsburg route, another by Chambersburg. Accounts from last night state there was no enemy west of Frederick. A cavalry force (abou was by that time at Carlisle, and Longstreet's and Hill's corps were also in Pennsylvania at Chambersburg, having, as General Lee says, advanced so far without any report that the Federal army had crral Ewell's right on the 26th of June, on which date the two columns of the Second Corps left Chambersburg, going towards the Susquehanna and General Lee arrived at that place.

Mosby is d and our main body, preventing any communication with him until he arrived at Carlisle. Second report: (nothing). (7) The march towards Gettysburg was slower teral army had been known. Second report: General Ewell was recalled from Carlisle and directed to join the army at Cashtown or Gettysburg, as circumstances migh view to the comfort of the troops. (8) Intelligence of Stuart's arrival at Carlisle was received on July 1st, after Hill had met the enemy. First report: Thng the afternoon intelligence was received of the arrival of General Stuart at Carlisle, and he was ordered to march to Gettysburg and take position on our left. She same time that General Stuart crossed at Seneca. Ewell was by that time at Carlisle, and Longstreet's and Hill's corps were also in Pennsylvania at Chambersburg,

o ride between them. After gathering the information General Lee wanted, I turned my face late in the afternoon to the Bull Run Mountain. .. Reynolds with the first Corps was at Guilford, about two miles off; the third corps (Sickles), was at Gum Springs about the same distance in another direction; while Meade's corps and the cavalry were six or eight miles away at Aldie. He says on page 81: I got to Stuart early the next morning. He listened to what I told him, wrote a dispatch, sat night the brigades, with noiseless march, moved out. * * Moving to the right we passed through Glasscock's Gap without difficulty and marched for Haymarket. * * As we neared Haymarket, we found Hancock's corps en route through Haymarket for Gum Springs, his infantry well distributed through his trains. I chose a good position and opened with artillery on his passing column with effect, scattering men, wagons and horses in wild confusion; disabled one of the enemy's caissons, which he aband

utt were ordered abroad, leaving me here as the only representative of a scheme whose prospects were so inviting and so brilliant. Capt. Bulloch again wanted Capt. Murdaugh detailed to command one of three vessels to make an attack on the New England ports. In a letter to the Secretary of the Navy from London, January 10, 1865, Capt. Bulloch says: I have long thought that a severe blow might be struck at New Bedford, Salem, Portland and other New England towns by sending from thisNew England towns by sending from this side ships prepared with incendiary shells and Hall's rockets. If you will send out Commodore Davidson and Lieut. J. Pembroke Jones and will detail Lieut. Murdaugh, who is now in Europe, these three officers to command the ships, and each having not more than two subordinates of prudence and experience, I think the expedition could be secretly managed in the spring or early summer. This scheme was never consummated, coming as it did so soon before the termination of the war. What I hav

the fort surrendered. I find in a scrap book kept during the war the following account of the defense of Fort Hatteras: Much of the disaster which occurred on Thursday may be attributed to the fact that we did not possess ourselves of Fort Clark by the bayonet that night, but wiser heads than mine thought otherwise. Certain it is in my opinion that it was one of the causes, second only by the shameful neglect of the authorities in not properly fortifying the coast that caused our defefended ramparts of Hatteras; he was calmly superintending the work about the guns, having one fixed so as to better bear on the enemy with which he himself intended to fight. No one who saw him could doubt but that he would do good service. Fort Clark, then in the possession of the enemy, opened fire also on Hatteras and several land batteries which the enemy had erected on shore. This, with the continuous firing of the fleet composed of the Minnesota, Wabash, Susquehanna and Columbus, pour

here among many of you, and all with whom he associated can bear testimony to his high sense of honor and unblemished life of modest worth. In the year, 1846 he began the completion of his education as a naval officer at the naval school at Annapolis, this school not having been established when he received his appointment. Of this school and of his cruise on the Brandywine he writes: After my voyage around the world I was granted a leave of absence of three months, but little of it did I get. Mr. Bancroft, the Secretary of the Navy, had just established the naval school at Annapolis; this was a pet scheme of his and he caught up all midshipmen he could lay his hands on and corralled them at the school; so a lot of the Brandywine midshipmen met again sooner than had been anticipated. Fort Severn had been turned over to the navy for the school. It had been unoccupied for a long time and was in charge of an old artillery sergeant. We had to shake ourselves down into qua

me could have been more cheerfully done, but I regret that one better qualified than myself had not been assigned this work. Fortunate, Capt. Murdaugh wrote something about his naval career, and much of this I will use. The subject of this paper should really be the Naval Career and Reminiscences of Capt. Murdaugh. William Henry Murdaugh was the eldest son of John D. Murdaugh, who, after graduating at the College of William and Mary, came to this city from his ancestral home in Nansemond county to practice law. He was a man ever active in city affairs, representing it in the General Assembly for years and also in the State Senate. Among the few instances of father and son meeting in the same service his was one. He was an elector for this district at the election of Harrison and Tyler. President Tyler offered the appointment of midshipman to his son, the subject of this sketch, whose naval career began first on the frigate Constitution, which sailed from here in October,

During this engagement he had his arm badly shattered and never fully regained the use of it. He was, as far as I can ascertain, the first Confederate naval officer to be wounded. Heo good service. Fort Clark, then in the possession of the enemy, opened fire also on Hatteras and several land batteries which the enemy had erected on shore. This, with the continuous firing of the fleet composed of the Minnesota, Wabash, Susquehanna and Columbus, pouring a continuous stream of shot and shell. All eyes were turned on the gallant little fort fighting against such desperate odds, amid a perfect hailstorm of shot and shell a boat leaves the fort. What can it mean? My! the

eut. M. Alas it is. He had fallen battling against them by the side of his gun. With words of encouragement on his lips, after several effective shots, but finding the enemy beyond the range, he remarked to his men: Well, boys, we will wait until they come up and then give it to them again. But he had hardly uttered the words ere an eleven inch shell exploded close by, sent several fragments through his left arm, shattering it to pieces. After his wound had been dressed he was taken to Newbern, receiving every kindness and attention from the people of that hospitable town. From there he was removed to his home, where, after months of illness and suffering, he recovered sufficiently to report for duty, this first being selected with another to seek a safe place for the removal of the navy yard stores and machinery. Charlotte was the place chosen to become our inland navy yard, rendering much service to the country. Soon after he was ordered to join Commodore Barron and Capt. Bu

And again on Page 192: If Longstree in motion, which delayed Stuart's crossing at Seneca two days; but Stuart knew they were moving befhindrance, no doubt influenced him to cross at Seneca instead of Shepherdstown, for Hooker's army hanorthward; and he believed that by crossing at Seneca he would lose no time in getting into the posit the same time that General Stuart crossed at Seneca.
