An extensive forrest that skirts "our village" yields us excellent fire-wood, which may be had for the getting, and as I now write the "yule log" is blazing cheerfully on the hearth. The mess of which I am a member, (the "Spotswood") has just finished its evening meal, and "the boys" are passing away time in different pursuits: one is completely enshrouded in smoke from his Bethel pipe, others are chatting of by-gone days and their pleasant associations, while Pigyoke, "the most ethereal of all, is singing "Then you'll remember me."

It seems they rode up as far as Great Bethel and derivate our pickets the design of this pulsant hand being to set on fire the church which brought up to their minds such direful associations; but, before they could accomplish their sacrilegious purpose, the hasty marching of our troops reminded them that another defeat might possibly await them. So they bestride their horses and were soon back to Newport News. The wretch who shot the gallant Colonel Dreux has been killed in a skirmish. It is stated that a member of the War wick Bean regards was the avenger of his cruel death; but I do not know how true the statement may be, as false rumors are continually on the wing. A note-book was found upon the person of the Federalist which gave an account of Colonel Dreux's death and the date of the month he fell. The Young Guard are very healthy and in fine spirits. Their vacant Captaincy has not yet been fire. C. B.
