see university, he engaged for a while in farming and then in mercantile pursuits. In 1861 he was elected to the Tennessee convention as a Union delegate. But when his native State at last decided on secession, like most of those who held similar views, he obeyed the voice of the majority and was among the first to enlist under the banner of the new Confederacy. He entered the service as a private, but was elected lieutenant-colonel of his regiment, receiving his commission as such, August 10, 1861. In September of the same year he was commissioned colonel of partisan rangers. In the reports of the movements of Forrest's command, we find Colonel Dibrell's name favorably mentioned on many occasions. In one of many brilliant affairs in which Dibrell's regiment participated, Col. R. G. Ingersoll is mentioned as one of the captives. In March, 1863, General Bragg requested Forrest to send a force to defend the manufacturing establishments at Tuscumbia and Florence, Ala., against Fe

Mallory, Secretary Confederate States Navy. Lieutenant Brooke is not even hinted at in this letter.

Sir: The great importance of the service expected from the Merrimac, and the urgent necessity of her speedy completion, induce me to call upon you to push forward the work with the utmost dispatch.

mber, 1902.] A veteran describes his experiences in Durham at the close of the war. A Baltimore correspondent of the Charlotte (N. C.) Observer, writes as follows: Mr. David M. Sadler, who lives at 907 Arlington avenue, in this city, claims that he was one of those who fired the last volley of Johnston's army, and he also tells of a daring project of General Joe Wheeler's at the close of the Civil war. Sadler is an Arkansas man, and was in the first battle at Wilson Creek, Mo., August 10, 1861. From that time he served continuously to the end of the struggle, having had but one twelve-hour leave, and never having missed a day from the service. He was with Wheeler on his last raid in Tennessee, and followed the trail of Sherman's march to the sea. The Eleventh Texas, of which he was a member, was, he says, on rear guard at Branchville, S. C., and at Raleigh, ending its career at what was then known as Durham's Station. The last shot, as described by Mr. Sadler, was fir

ght of summary arrest was exercised by the President, not only against individuals, but also against newspapers, if we may so express ourselves. At the outset of Mr. Lincoln's administration some of the journals published in the great Northern cities openly preached rebellion; the respect usually entertained for the liberty of the press, and the small amount of influence which these papers exercised over the public mind, secured them for some time perfect impunity. Finally, on the 10th of August, 1861, five newspapers published in New York were indicted by the grand jury of the circuit court of that city. As it was almost impossible to prosecute them criminally, the government decided to refuse them transportation by mail. This measure, which the most distinguished jurists declared to be perfectly constitutional, was frequently applied afterward, and Congress, after voting down a resolution of censure on this subject, which was introduced on the 1st of December, 1862, sanctioned
From Norfolk. [special Correspondence of the Dispatch.] Norfolk, August 10th, 1861. Two large steamers were anchored between Old Point and the Rip Raps yesterday. One steamer was off the News, and everything perfectly quiet. The Rip Raps is said to look much larger in size than before, which doubtless accounts for several new buildings being erected on it. We have been informed of the capture of another prize off Hatteras, with a fine lot of lumber and mahogany. She was captured on Sunday last and is valuable. We regret exceedingly to learn of a distressing accident at the Gosport Yard, yesterday afternoon. A gentleman by the name of Brown had his two arms cut off by some machinery, before any assistance could be rendered. A portion of his side or chest was most horribly lacerated. Death put an end to his sufferings last night. He was a resident of Portsmouth. A large number of negro laborers who have been at work on our various points of defence, leave
The battle of Manassas.Graphic account of a capture, Columbian Hotel. Richmond Aug. 10, 1861 To the Editors of the Dispatch: --Owing to severe ness, from which I have not yet recovered my promised statement has been delayed to this time. It is with diffidence I it upon the public even now, and should carefully not do so, but that I know that everything in anyway connected with the great victory of Manassas is still read with unabated interest, and that it is also necessary to my own vindication, from certain mis-statements which have been copied into our newspapers from Northern sources. I shall make it as brief as possible, confiding it mainly to facts, and denouncing, in advance, as false and unfounded, anything in conflict with it which may have appeared in the journal, of the United States. The day before the fight, (Saturday,) the regiment to which I was attached (the Nineteenth Mississippi, Col. C. M. Mott,) was on the way from Winchester to Manassas, waiting
