Personal. --Col. John S. Preston, of Gen. Beauregard's staff, arrived in Richmond from Manassas on Sunday last.
ich they called up. Imagine the scene. The white tents of the soldiers; the distant camp fires glimmering through the dark; the bright starlight; sentinels pacing steadily their posts; the band intently playing; the groups of officers and men listening with interested, pensive faces, the whole forming a picture that cannot be easily effaced from the memory. At 9 o'clock comes tattoo, and the drum corps, consisting of ten or twelve boys, beat around the quarters. Then all assembled by the marquee, and listened with bowed, uncovered heads to prayers read by Dr. Harrold. Soon after comes "taps," and the lights are extinguished. I must correct an unintentional error in my last letter, in which I spoke of Brigadier Gen. Smith, when I was perfectly aware that he was a General, and commanded a corps of the "army of the Potomac." The Commander-in-Chief is General Johnston; Gen. Beauregard commands the first corps and Gen. Smith the second. My error was a slip of the pen. Bohemian.
