undred and forty-nine. Number of chests insufficient, but those on hand are full of ammunition in good order. Guns and carriages in good order generally, but the harness is poor. The men are much in need of clothing, and especially shoes, are badly drilled and worse disciplined. The report does not include the horses of commissioned officers and those of King's battery.

Brooke; Nov. 3, Charles A. Rutledge. The original muster-roll, prepared October 31, 1861, at this camp at Centreville, notes the following changes since the last mustering, August 31, 1861, to-wit: P. Lewis Burwell, discharged October 3d, having received a commission in the Confederate States army; Lawson W. Johnson, discharged October 26th, appointed in quartermaster department; Francis K. Nelson, Jr., transferred September 3d to Albemarle Light Horse; Richard C. M. Page, transferred October 20th to Morris' Artillery (and afterwards became a major of artillery); Dudley S. Pendleton, transferred September 24th to Company D, First Virginia cavalry; Robert P. Conner, discharged September 5th, disabled by lung-disease. The following additional note is made: The company last mustered at Camp Harman, August 31, 1861 (which muster-roll, by the way, is missing), since which time it has been pretty much inactive except in drilling. The company is generally well-uniformed with plain gre

used many of them for their headquarters, without any thought of paying for them. October 19. Bugle call at 3 o'clock A. M., and in half an hour we started for the river. We were soon overtaken by a very heavy fall of rain, hail and sleet, accompanied by a fierce, driving wind, which blew off hats and almost changed one's course in walking. We crossed the Rappahannock on a pontoon bridge, and marched through mud and slush and rain towards Kelly's Ford, and halted in an old field. October 20. Two months wages were paid off. October 21. Went in search of Ben, my cook, riding Colonel Goodgame's horse a distance of twenty-five miles. Ben had been sick of pneumonia, Missed him, but found him in camp on my return. Received one month's salary and $50.00 bounty. October 22, 23 and 24. Engaged laying off camp for winter quarters. Received a remittance of money from my beloved mother, unsolicited and not needed, but a fresh evidence of her affection for me. May God bless and

oped out of town bareheaded. October 13.—I went down to camp to-day. Stuart has gone into Maryland with I,000 troopers. He sent for 150 of my men, but Jackson had them all out scouting. General Lee has taken pains to show and express his confidence in me as an officer, and personally he has been as kind as I could ask or desire. He has ordered me to take command of Howell's brigade on a march this morning. My impression is that we are about to fall back towards the Rappahannock. October 20.—The returned prisoners give a glowing account of their treatment in Baltimore. They came back loaded with presents from the ladies and clothed anew from head to foot. I still hear some news of our casualties in battle. Ben. Mell was not killed, and is still alive. He was severely wounded, and is in the house of a clever family in Maryland. I do hope he will recover. Reuben Nisbet was not killed, as reported; only slightly wounded. McLaws told me his report of Howell's Brigade in
week for 30 scholars. The school for girls (over seven years of age) was kept six months, and also closed in November. In April (1820) it was voted to pay Miss Carlisle, the assistant, one-half as much as to Mr. Prentiss, the principal. October 20, J. M. Wilkins, of No. 1, resigned suddenly, much to the regret of the board. He received their commendation. Edward Sawyer was appointed his successor, at a salary of $800, if he continues two years; if less than that time, only $700 per ann Thompson was engaged for the month of August. September 1, Henry Adams was engaged, and began his labors there, at a salary of $600. In October the school in district No. 1, under Messrs. Sawyer and Gordon, was examined and gave satisfaction. October 20, Cornelius Walker succeeded Mr. Sawyer as teacher. The female school, under Luther S. Cushing and Miss Sprague, was kept six months. The examination was highly gratifying, especially Miss Sprague's work. May 3, 1824, this school opened again,

le. The next day we had an all day's march, sixteen or seventeen miles, and halted at night four miles from the railroad station. November 9, at 5 p. m., we marched for Licking Run, about fifteen miles away, and reached there late at night, in the midst of a snowstorm. About an inch of snow was on the ground. The men were pretty well demoralized and, to put it mildly, there was considerable grumbling. My commission as second lieutenant, Company H. signed by Governor Andrew, and dated October 20, reached me the next day. November 10. I stopped grumbling. November 23. We marched from 7.30 a. m. to 11 p. m., arriving at Rappahannock Station. (The orders for all this marching and counter-marching were issued by General Meade to the corps commanders.) We remained here until November 26, when we crossed the Rappahannock at 8 a. m. By 6.30 p. m. we had crossed the Rapidan, also, thus traversing the peninsula between the two rivers on our way eastward towards Richmond. That

marry his beloved Anna? Or did they part forever,— she going back to her kinsfolk, and he to his companions of Malta? Did he perish at the hands of the infidels, and does the maiden sleep in the family tomb, under her father's oaks? Alas! who can tell? I must needs leave them, and their sorrows and trials, to Him who doth not willingly afflict the children of men; and whatsoever may have been their sins and their follies, my prayer is, that they may be forgiven, for they loved much. October 20. I do purpose to start to-morrow for the Massachusetts, going by boat to the Piscataqua River, and thence by horse to Newbury. Young Mr. Jordan spent yesterday and last night with us. He is a goodly youth, of a very sweet and gentle disposition; nor doth he seem to me to lack spirit, although his father (who liketh not his quiet ways and easy temper, so contrary to his own, and who is sorely disappointed in that he hath chosen the life of a farmer to that of a minister, for which he

ome demonstration in that direction for the purpose of feeling the enemy; but General Palmer, who had remained at Nashville with his brigade and that of Negley, attacked Anderson on the 7th of October at Lavergne, and compelled him to retire. Shortly after, Forrest reappeared in the neighborhood, destroying all the ways of communication which might at any time be of service to the Federals, shutting up the latter closer and closer within the limits of the capital of Tennessee. On the 20th of October a portion of his troops encountered a regiment of Union cavalry on the borders of the Cumberland, a little below the town. After losing a few men, the Confederates were obliged to recross the river. But Forrest returned to the charge on the 22d; assembling his forces and marching upon Nashville by the left bank, he drove the Federals back into their lines of defence. These entrenchments could not have sustained a long siege; their profile was slight, and they were not sufficiently ex

Thus was organized the first church in the colony of Massachusetts Bay. The next important action taken by the Massachusetts Company was to provide for transferring the charter and government of the company to New England, and this was determined upon August 29, 1629. The old officers resigned; and, on October 20th, John Winthrop was chosen Governor, with John Humphrey for Deputy-Governor, and eighteen others for Assistants. Humphrey's departure was delayed, and, March 23, 1629-30, at a Court kept aboard the Arbella, at South-Hampton, on the eve of embarkation, his place was supplied by Thomas Dudley, and several Assistants were chosen, in place of those who were not yet ready to sail to the new colony. Active measures were taken at once to transport to the colony large accessions of men, women,
