Hurry, my boy! Pack up your traps and get ready for the boat, cried Styles Staple, bursting into my room in his usual sudden fashion the day we got the news from Virginia. All's fixed. The colonel, you and I are to have a trip of a week, stop at Momething; then something else and, finally, something more, till he got very thick-tongued and enthusiastic. Grand aire of ze Liberte! he cried at last, mounting again to his perch by the smoke-stack. Song compose by me for one grand man-ze Van Dorn. I make zees-me, myself-and dedicate to heem! And he banged at the keys till he tortured the steam into the Liberty duet, from Puritani. How you fine zat, eh? Zat makes ze hymn for ze Souse. Me, I am republican! Voila! I wear ze moust

Let's go up to the professor's den and see if his head aches from ‘ze Van Dorn. So up we mounted, passing on the way the faro bank, that advertises its neighborhood by most musical jingling of chips and half dollars. Hello, Spring Chicken, cried Styles, to a youth in a blue sack with shoulder straps, who sat at thehe people will all go one way now, or make two strong and bitter parties. For my part, I believe Maryland will be with us before this boat gets off. Late at night we swung loose and rushed past Selma, with the calliope screaming Dixie and ze Van Dorn; for the professor was himself again and waxed irate and red-patriotic over the news. We could get no more papers, however; so suspense and speculation continued until we reached Mobile. There we heard of the quelling of the riot; of the co

At the new position Van Dorn's division was on the right, with Ewell's brigade at Union Mills and mine on its left above thazed into four divisions of three brigades each and two corps. Bonham's brigade was attached to Van Dorn's division, and the command of the other divisions was given to Major Generals G. W. Smith, Longstreet, and E. Kirby Smith, respectively. Van Dorn's and Longstreet's divisions constituted the first corps under General Beauregard, and the other two divisions constituted the second corps under td so as to merely cover McLean's Ford on that flank. About the middle of January, 1862, Major General Van Dorn was relieved from duty with the Army of the Potomac and ordered to the Trans-Mississippi
ranger at Franklin, arriving in the midst of much excitement prevailing on account of the loss of Coburn's brigade, which had been captured the day before a little distance south of that point, while marching to form a junction with a column that had been directed on Columbia from Murfreesboroa. Shortly after Coburn's capture General Granger had come upon the scene, and the next day he advanced my division and Minty's troops directly on Spring Hill, with a view to making some reprisal; but Van Dorn had no intention of accommodating us, and retired from Spring Hill, offering but little resistance. He continued to fall back, till finally he got behind Duck River, where operations against him ceased; for, in consequence of the incessant rains of the season, the streams had become almost impassable. Later, I returned by way of Franklin to my old camp at Murfreesboroa, passing over on this march the ground on which the Confederate General Hood met with such disaster the following year in
