p-stool, and writing by a Yankee candle, you can form some idea of the utter rout.. I have a pincushion for L., picked up on the field, a needle-case for K., and a sword taken from a Vermont volunteer, for W. Our troops occupy Fairfax Court-House to-day. I will try and see you soon. Good-night. God bless and protect you. I feel that he has protected me in the last few days, in answer to the prayers of a pious wife. I hope that I feel grateful for my preservation. Mountain view, September 22, 1861. Came down here with Mr.-- , a few days ago. Spent this day not quite so profitably as I desired. The ride to the old chapel, where we had service, is so long, that we spent a great deal of time upon the road. Bishop Meade delivered a most interesting address. He mentioned with great feeling the death of Mr. John A. Washington, of Mount Vernon, who fell at Cheat Mountain a few days ago, while, with some other officers, he was observing the movements of Rosecranz. It is heart-re

Smith's Division, a brigade composed of exceptionally good regiments. Under its able general the brigade soon won distinction at Williamsburg, where, by its brilliant and effective manoeuvres, it aided materially in securing a victory: that it accomplished the same with but little loss, reflected all the more credit on its superb commander.

Doc. 57. proclamation of General A. S. Johnston. Issued at Memphis, Tenn., Sept. 22, 1861. whereas, the armed occupation of a part of Kentucky by the United States, and the preparations which manifest the intention of their Government to invade the Confederate States through that territory, have imposed it on these last, as a necessity of self-defence, to enter that State and meet the invasion upon the best line for military operations; and whereas, it is proper that the motives of the Government of the Confederate States in taking this step should be fully known to the world: Now, therefore, I, Albert S. Johnston, general and commander of the Western Department of the army of the Confederate States, have thus marched their troops into Kentucky with no hostile intention toward its people, nor do they desire to seek to control their choice in regard to their union with either of the Confederacies, or to subjugate their State or hold its soil against their wishes.

I was so sorry you and Sergeant Son of General Meade. had gone. The review passed off very well, pretty much the same as you saw, except that, having been advised of the arrival of the distinguished strangers only the night before, Gauttier did not have the privilege of sticking McCall for a fine collation. McClellan, however, took the Frenchmen over to the Chain Bridge and by Ball's Cross-Roads. I felt very sad when you drove off, and could hardly shake off the idea that I was looking on you perhaps for the last time—at any rate, for a long while; but I trust matters will b
