Gen. W. H. T. Walker. Gov. Brown, of Georgia, has conferred upon the above-named officer the appointment of Brigadier General in the forces of that State. In his letter of acceptance. Gen. Walker says: The position of General on the Potomac I resigned for reasons set forth in my resignation. The rank of General I would never allow to be degraded in my person. I am rejoiced that the rank of Major General has been bestowed on my gallant and chivalrous friend, Gen. Jackson, and it will be my pride to serve under him, and to render him all the aid in my power in preserving the soil of Georgia intact from the ruthless footsteps of the invaders. With such a dashing leader, backed by the noble and gallant men of Georgia, who will combat for all that is dear and sacred, our wives and little ones can lie under their own vine and flg pree, with none to make them afraid. Allow me to thank you for the high (and undeserved) appreciation you place upon my character as a sol
Hugh McDaniel --Capt. A. G. Brown relates an incident connected with the fight at Leesburg, which as it concerns a man born and raised in Hinds county, we take pleasure in recording. At one time during the battle, Hugh McDaniel, who is a very large and powerful man, found himself in the vicinity of two Yankees whom he determined to capture. Holding his musket in his right hand, he attempted with his left to collar the one nearest to him. Yankee resisted, and Hugh, unwilling to lose a load of powder, let drive with his naked feet and knocked him down. The other Yankee, not relishing the prostrating power of the Mississippian's arm broke to run; when some ten or fifteen steps distant, McDaniel threw his gun muzzle foremost, at him, driving the bayonet entirely through his body, killing him instantly. We mention this incident with the more pleasure from the fact that McDaniel's mother is a poor widow, and has five sons (her all) in the army of the Confederacy.-- Jackson
