tives, personal as well as patriotic. Their venerable father and mother, and two young sisters, were forced to leave their comfortable home in Fairfax a year ago. The mother has sunk into the grave, an early sacrifice, while the father and sisters continue to be homeless. Their house has been burnt to the ground by Federal soldiers-furniture, clothing, important papers, all consumed. Sad as this story is, it is the history of so many families that it has ceased to call forth remark. May 3d, 1862. It is distressing to see how many persons are leaving Richmond, apprehending that it is in danger; but it will not — I know it will not-fall. It is said that the President does not fear; he will send his family away, because he thinks it is better for men, on whom the country's weal is so dependent, to be free from private anxiety. General Johnston is falling back from Yorktown, not intending to fight within range of the enemy's gun-boats. This makes us very anxious about Norfolk.

es wrote home to his father that we should probably finish up the war in season for him to be at home to teach the village school the following winter; in fact, I believe he partly engaged to teach it. Another wrote to his mother: We have got them hemmed in on every side, and the only reason they don't run is because they can't. We had at last corduroyed every road and bridged every creek; our guns and mortars were in position; Battery No. 1 had actually opened on the enemy's works, Saturday, May 3d, 1862, and it was expected that our whole line would open on them in the morning. About 2 o'clock of Saturday night, or rather of Sunday morning, while on guard duty, I observed a bright illumination, as if a fire had broken out within the enemy's lines. Several guns were fired from their works during the early morning hours, but soon after daylight of May 4th it was reported that they had abandoned their works in our front, and we very quickly found the report to be true. As soon as I

pensated by inflicting upon the foe the loss of seventy-five men. This repulse confirmed McClellan in his belief that an immense force of Confederates was on his front, and Magruder (who had resorted to all sorts of tricks to mislead his antagonist) was enabled to write truly on the 3d of May, the day before, he fled from York town, Thus, with five thousand men, exclusive of the garrison, we stopped and held in check over one hundred thousands of the enemy. Magruder's report to Cooper, May 3, 1862. A British officer (Colonel Freemantle), who spent three months with the Confederate army, says Magruder told him the different dodges he resorted to to blind and deceive McClellan as to his strength, and said he was greatly amused and relieved when he saw that general with his magnificent army begin to break ground before miserable earth-works defended by only 8,000 men. --Freemantle's Three Months in the southern States.

[War Records, Series I., Vol. XV, pp. 459-471.] The following is from Lovell's order pursuant to the instructions from Randolph [War Records, Series I., Vol. XV., pp. 459-460]:-- headquarters Department no. 1, C. S. A. Camp Moore, La., May 3, 1862. General Orders No. 17. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . It is with the people to decide this question for themselves. If you are resolved to be free; if you are worthy of the heroic blood that has come down to you throughed. This I did upon the solemn pledge that all such provisions should be used only for a supply for the inhabitants of the city. On the morning following, I issued General Order No 19:-- headquarters Department of the Gulf, New Orleans, May 3, 1862. General Order No. 19. The commanding general of this department has been informed that there is now at Mobile a stock of flour purchased by the city of New Orleans for the subsistence of its citizens. The suffering condition of the poor
9: 11. Oh! where, brothers, where is our liberty? Where, where is the “union of lands” That was won by the blood of our sires, From England's tyrannical bands? Oh! where are the sons of the patriot Who slumbers in Mount Vernon's gloom? Would to heaven his children could hear him Calling, “Peace, children, peace!” from the tomb. Oh! where, brothers, where is your birthright? Where, where is your free speech and laws? Why, why do you war with each other In the verge of Anarchy's jaws? “Peace, freemen, peace with thy kinsmen!” Let the angel of love hover o'er you, And betray not the trust of your brethren, Disgracing the country that bore you. Where, where are the children of freedom Whose bravery and valor excelled That of Britain's proud-minioned soldiers, From our united Republic expelled? I mourn, even weep for my country, Encompassed by a foreboding gloom: Would to God now the factions could hear him-- George Washington calls “Peace!” from the tomb. Baltimore, May 3
