The reunion of the Virginia division of the Army of Northern Virginia Association, on the evening of the 1st of November, was in every respect a most brilliant affair. The oration of Leigh Robinson, Esq., on “The Battle of the Wilderness,” was chaste, eloquent, and patriotic, and a valuable contribution to this series of historical addresses. By the way, what other army that ever existed could furnish from among its subalterns such orators as Colonel Charles Marshall, Colonel C. S. Venable, Major John W. Daniel, Captain W. Gordon McCabe, and Private Leigh Robinson? The banquet at the St. Claire hotel was presided over by the president (General W. H. F. Lee), and was a magnificent affair. We regret that we have not room for further notice of the “feast of reason and flow of soul” which made the occasion one of far more than ordinary interest.

The officers of last year (General W. H. F. Lee, president, George L. Christian and Leroy S. Edwards, secretaries, Major R. Stiles, treasurer, &c.,) were unanimously re-elected.
