dated January 12, 1861. This has already been published, as also the order dated January 19th to Lieutenant C. C. Lee to go North and look after the purchase of ordnance stores. Lieutenant Lee left that day. He went first to Richmond, where J. R. Anderson, of the Tredegar Iron Works, offered to furnish the State with any cannon it needed, iron or brass, at United States Government prices; including 8 and 10-inch Columbiads (cannon of large bore) and field pieces. Crenshaw & Co., of Richmond, feels that it would be next to impossible to get them away from here, and under the present state of affairs, he would not like to be thought to be seeking such a contract, still, should circumstances change, he would like to do the work. J. R. Anderson, of Richmond, came to Raleigh to see the Governor, and February 2d signed a contract to deliver at United States Government prices four 6-pounder brass guns, four 12-pounder, and four 24-pounder iron howitzers, with carriages and—; also, two

e and dignity that was not only superb, but well calculated to disarm suspicion and allay excitement. I can see now his lithe, erect, stately figure as it disappeared down the aisle, and I shall never forget it, for it was the last time I ever saw him. His withdrawal was so quiet that the service was in no wise interrupted, and I believe it would have been concluded in the usual way but for what followed. Hardly had Mr. Davis disappeared than the sexton came in again and spoke to General Joseph R. Anderson, who at once went out. This made people look up and shoot inquiring glances at each other. Then the sexton came again, and the excitement became manifest. But when the sexton appeared the fourth time, all restraint of place and occasion yielded, and the vast congregation rose en masse and rushed towards the doors. I sat still for a moment, wondering and withal listening to the preacher's earnest appeal to the people to remember where they were and be still. Good Dr. Minnigerode

General Hooker, commanding the Federal army in 1863, occupied the hills north of the Rappahannock river in rear of Fredericksburg, Va., with a force of about 125,000 thoroughly equipped and well seasoned troops. It was by far the best furnished body of soldiery at that time in the field on either side. It was commanded by Fighting Joe Hooker, who had boasted that while in command of the army of the west he had only been able to see the backs of the Confederate soldiers. He had been transferred to the army of the Potomac for the express purpose of taking Richmond. So sanguine was he of accomplishing this feat that he dated his general orders Headquarters in the Saddle. General Lee's army of 59,000 veterans occupied the south bank of the river and in front of Fredericksburg. It was composed of Stonewall Jackson's and A. P. Hill's corps and McLaws' and Anderson's divisions of Longstreet's corps (Longstreet, with the balance of his corps, being at Suffolk, Va., some 200 miles away.)

a mystery. Long before day Sunday morning everything was astir and after a hearty breakfast the lines were formed. Hardee's Corps, composed of Hindman's, Cleburne's and Wood's Brigades, numbering 6,789 men, infantry and artillery, augmented by Gladden's Brigade, 2,200 strong—about 8,500 bayonets—formed the first line. The line was formed on the ground where the men had bivouacked. The second line was some five hundred yards rearward, and was made up of Bragg's Corps, consisting of Anderson's, Gibson's and Pond's Brigades of Ruggle's Division, and Chalmer's and J. K. Jackson's Brigades of Wither's Division—some 10,000 bayonets. The First Corps, under General Polk, not over 8,500 bayonets, was formed in column of brigades, about a half mile to the rear of Bragg, and was composed of A. P. Stewart's, Cheatham's, B. R. Johnson's, Stevens' and Russell's Brigades. Breckinridge, with Trabue's, Bowen's and Stratham's Brigades—6,000 bayonets-constituted the reserve. The above figur

the following with pen and ink: To General Bradley T. Johnson, General John McCausland, Commanding Cavalry: You are hereby ordered to proceed with your commands at once to Chambersburg, Pa., and in consideration of the destruction by General David Hunter of the residences of Edmund I, Lee, Alexander R. Boteler and Andrew Hunter, in Jefferson county, Va., and of the Virginia Military Institute and other property in Lexington, Va., and also the burning of the iron works and home of Joseph R. Anderson, in Botetourt county, you are to demand the immediate payment of $500,000, and if not paid burn the city. The General signed these orders, as he said he did not wish it thought he could hide behind his adjutant-General, A. S. Pendleton. After making the two orders and delivering them in person to Johnson and McCausland, he accompanied them to Hagerstown, had a dinner at the hotel and returned to camp at Bunker Hill that night.
