2, 1861. At the head of this regiment he participated in the battle of Shiloh, April 6 and 7, 1862. Gen. Jones M. Withers, in his report of the battle, speaking of the time when the enemy was driven from his first position, alluded to the great gallantry of Colonel Moore. His regiment formed part of the force that enveloped and captured the splendid division of Prentiss. During the operations around Corinth, Colonel Moore was promoted to brigadier-general, being commissioned on the 26th of May, 1862. In the assault on Corinth his brigade went further than any other, according to General Maury, and at the Hatchie river it did heroic deeds. In the Vicksburg campaign Moore led his brigade in the marching and fighting that preceded the siege, and shared the hardships and dangers and final disaster of the surrender. After the troops were paroled, they were gathered into camp at Demopolis, Ala., and as fast as they were exchanged were sent where most needed. Moore, with the Alabama

The Sixth South Carolina at seven Pines. By General John Bratton. [The following address was delivered by General John Bratton on the battlefield of Seven Pines, Virginia, on 6th August, 1885, to the survivors of the Sixth Regiment, South Carolina Volunteers, Confederate States Army:] About the 26th May, 1862, we moved up to camp nearer Richmond, not far from where the Confederate Cemetery is located. At daybreak on the 31st we moved out in accordance with orders to the Williamsburg Road, were halted near a farm or fruit-nursery, (name of owner forgotten). It was here that I learned that the Yankees were a short distance down the road, and we were expected to attack in a few minutes. We waited there, however, for hours, and it was certainly as late as one o'clock P. M. when we moved on slowly through the mud and slush, and soon evidences of conflict were apparent. We were told that D. H. Hill was driving them down the road, and ordered to push on. This we did as briskly as

ves for it is peculiar service. Suitable officers will be appointed to receive the names of volunteers and organize the force as rapidly as possible an officer for this purpose will be found at the Capitol, in the Hall of the House of Delegates. Regulations for the government of the corps will be forthwith proscribed. The corps will be entitled to the same pay with the Militia when called into actual service. Each volunteer will bring with him such arms as he may be able to procure. It is needless to appeal to the patriotism of the people of Richmond and the surrounding counties. They have heretofore evinced their spirit and zeal by ardently responding to every call upon them, and will never be found wanting.

The battle of Lewisburg. [Correspondence of the Richmond Dispatch.] Dublin Depot, Va., May 26, 1862. You have doubtless learned that the Federals, after taking and holding Giles C. H. for several days, were forced to retire precipitately from the town by Gen. Heth, leaving all the commissary and quartermaster stores which they found there upon their arrival, together with other stores brought there by themselves, it eluding a good lot of coffee. It was, indeed, good fortune for our troops to find so large a quantity of articles so necessary to their comfort and existence. All things rendered it to the interest of the Federals on secure permanently that advance to wards cutting off our communication with the West and South, and in my opinion they would have taken more active steps and more expeditions and effective measures for the holding of the position they had gained had it not been for the erroneous supposition that our forces in this section had been dissipated, toget

Commanders of regiments are reminded of the great responsibility that treats upon them — upon their coolness, judgment, and discretion the destinies of their regiments and the success of the day will depend.

The General commanding announces with regret, the loss of Brigadier-General William H Keim, of this Army, who died on the 18th inst., at Harrisburg, Pa., of typhoid fever; contracted while in command of his brigade on the Peninsula. General Keim has received in civil life, from the people, of Pennsylvania, proofs of their confidence in his character and abilities, and under the first requisition of the President, for the suppression of this rebelli
A General order from "Stonewall." The following order has been issued by Gen. Jackson relating to the recent gallant explor's of his army: Headquarters V. D. Winchester, May 26, 1862. General Orders No. 58. Within four weeks this army has made long and rapid to archer, fought six combats, and two battler, signally defeating the enemy in each one, captured several stands of colors and pieces of artillery, with numerous prisoners, and vast medical, ordnance, and army stores, and finally driven the boastful host, which was ravaging our beautiful country, into utter rout. The General Commanding would warmly express to the officers and men under his command his joy in their achievements, and his thanks for their brilliant gallantry in action, and their patient obedience under the hardships of forced massless, often more painful to the brave soldier than the dangers of battle. The explanation of the severe exertions to which the Commanding General called the army, wh

Latest from M'Clellan's army. The Northern papers contain the usual quantity of letters from the Army of the Potomac. Some of them are amusing. We make some extracts: White-House, Va., May 26, 1862. The great body of our army have safely, and, with but little opposition, crossed the Chickahominy river, and our advanced guard is within five miles of the city of Richmond. This fact dispels the heretofore prevalent idea that the enemy would make a bold defence on the west bank of the river already mentioned. That they will fight, and that desperately, for the defence of their so-called national capital, there is no doubt, and to make their defence successful, they have spared n
