But as I knew that these hard names became quite transformed upon their lips, Carthage being familiarized into Cartridge, and Concord into Corn-cob, how could I possibly tell what shade of pronunciation my friend might prefer for this particular proper name? Vicksburg, I repeated, blandly, but authoritatively, endeavoring, as zealously as one of Christy's Minstrels, to assimilate my speech to any supposed predilection of the Ethiop vocal organs. Halt dar! Countersign not correck, was the only answer. The bayonet still maintained a position which, in a military point of view, was impressive. I tried persuasion, orthography, threats, tobacco, all in vain. I could not pass in. Of course my pride was up; for was I to defer to an untutored African on a point of pronunciation? Classic shades of Harvard, forbid! Affecting scornful
his escape. The doctor was injured by a horse at the time, and has since been upon the medical staff, where his valuable services are fully appreciated. James M. Gray, of Company F, Second Kentucky regiment, was accidentally shot on the 23d. He and another of the company were practising the bayonet exercise, when, becoming locked, his companion suddenly jerking his musket, caught the hammer of the lock in his pants, shooting Gray through the arm and bowels which caused his death. Lieut. Christy, of the First Kentucky, has been placed upon Gen. Cox's staff. The rebels, from the best authority that can be obtained here, have fled the country, and are not expected to stop until they reach the eastern shores of Virginia. Should this be the fact there will not be much more fighting in this valley. Gen. Cox, will, however, proceed on up the valley with dispatch, to Gauley Bridge. 10 A.

in this photograph are members of Colonel Michael Corcoran's Irish Regiment, the Sixty-ninth New York. They were captured at the first battle of Bull Run, July 21, 1861. Colonel Corcoran (shown on a previous page) and his men were taken first to Richmond, and then in September to Castle Pinckney in Charleston Harbor. These prisoners have light-heartedly decorated their casemate with a sign reading: Musical Hall, 444 Broadway. One of their number, nicknamed Scottie, had been formerly with Christy's minstrels, who played at 444 Broadway, New York, during the war. According to the recollections of Sergeant Joseph F. Burke, of the Cadets, the prisoners and their youthful guards indulged in good-natured banter about the outcome of the war, the prisoners predicting that their friends would soon come to the rescue—that the positions would be reversed, so that they, not the Cadets, would be on guard. Four terrible years elapsed before their prediction as to the outcome of the war came tru

At Conrad's store the Sixth and Ninth Louisiana regiments had been reorganized, Colonel Seymour reelected, Henry Strong chosen Lieutenant-Colonel, and Nat. Offutt Major in the Sixth. In the Ninth the field officers declined a reelection, and Captain L. A. Stafford was elected Colonel, Captain H. R. Peck Lieutenant-Colonel, and Captain-------Major. Major Christy of the Sixth, who failed of a reelection, was appointed Chief of Ordnance to the division with the rank of Captain of Engineers. He joined us from Richmond at Front Royal or Winchester and entered on the duties of his office at once. Major Hugh M. Nelson, of Clarke county, had been appointed Aid-de-Camp by General Ewell, I being appointed Captain and A. A. General at the same time. Major Nelson joined us at Winchester, on our retreat, having narrowly escaped capture by the Yankees the

The Journal gives every observable detail of the somewhat squalid manage, from the pacha's lilac trousers down to the dress of his son and heir, a singularly dirty baby. She remarks that An Irish servant's child in Boston, got up for Sunday, looks far cleaner and better. The pacha looked indolent and good-natured, and sent coffee to her before she disembarked at Syra. Here she was met by Mr. Evangelides, the Christy of her childhood, the Greek boy befriended by her father. He was now a prosperous man in middle life, full of affectionate remembrance of the family at 16 Bond Street, and of gratitude to dear Mr. Ward. He welcomed her most cordially, and introduced her not only to the beauties of Syra, but to its principal inhabitants, the governor of the Cyclades, the archbishop, and Doctor Hahn, the scientist and antiquary. She conversed with the archbishop in German. He deplored the absence of a s

When the Penguin came alongside and hailed her, the captain reported her to be the schooner Albion, of Nassan, N. P., from Nassau, and bound to New York, loaded with salt and fruits. When boarded, she was found to be also loaded with saddles, bridles, boots, shoes, leather, thread, and various other articles. The schooner was in command of captains Christy and Stevens, who wished to pass themselves off as Yankees, but, after a short time, admitted that they were residents of Savannah, Ga. They are also part owners of the vessel. The captains and crew were put on board the United States steamer Penguin. Master's Mate Geo. N.
