ining a store of provisions now became more apparent; forage, particularly, becoming scarce. But little could be had from the opposite side of the river on account of Banks's invasion, and, to increase the difficulty in that quarter, some of General Dudley's cavalry came up the Pointe Coupee shore and burned a small steamboat we had on False river. The Grierson raid. We were collecting a large lot of corn in Mississippi, but transportation was scarcely to be had, and when we were ready toy at Bayou Sara. On the 21st Colonel Powers, with a body of our cavalry, a few companies of infantry and Abbay's Mississippi battery of light artillery, were skirmishing pretty heavily all the morning near Plains's store with Augur's advance—General Dudley's brigade. To relieve Colonel Powers's cavalry, and enable them to get safely away and join Logan, General Gardner sent an order at noon to Colonel W. R. Miles to take four hundred men with a light battery and reconnoitre the enemy. The in

Stonewall Jackson at prayer. [from the Louisville courier-journal, October 19, 1891.] Probably there was never a more impressive tribute paid to Christianity than that by General John Echols in his Stonewall Jackson Address last Tuesday evening before the Confederate Association of Kentucky. Bishop Dudley, Bishop Penick, Dr. Broadus, Dr. Jones, the Rev. J. G. Minnigerode, and other ministers of the gospel in the great audience were visibly affected when, after the thrilling recital of General Jackson's matchless movements in the Valley of Virginia, throughout the forty days during which he marched four hundred miles, fought five pitched battles, defeated five great generals, captured four thousand prisoners, and closed the war in the Shenandoah Valley for months, General Echols, referring to the death of Ashby and the tender emotion exhibited by Stonewall Jackson, paused, and speaking of frequent prayer as a characteristic of Jackson, said slowly: There is a weakness among

uenots who settled in Oxford, Mass., was Jean Mallet, in whom we of Somerville are more particularly interested. Bolbec, France, in the province of Normandy, was believed to be the home of this man. He sailed from England together with thirty families in 1685 or ‘86. Gabriel Bernon, a man of considerable wealth and a Huguenot of some notability, was the original owner of some 25,000 acres in what is now a part of the town of Oxford, having received a grant of the same by purchase from Governor Dudley. This little company first landed at Fort Hill, Boston, and were cared for by friends, and probably Jean and his children were received by relatives, as there were then Mallets living in Boston. And just here I would like to say that I believe this Jean to have been a brother of the David before mentioned, who fled to England. This little company of Huguenots, among whom we find the names of Faneuil, Bowdoin, Sigourney, etc., which have since become so familiar in the history of old

the rumor—through rebel sources (sources, by the way, through which we received much information of the doings in Washington)—that General Banks had been ordered to relieve General Butler. On Sunday, December 14, 1862, General Banks and his fleet of transports passed the forts. Mobile and Texas, so ran the rumor, are to be annexed at once. We hoped to be included in the annexation business. But the programme was materially modified. About three months later I received a letter from General Dudley's adjutant-general asking me to come to Baton Rouge immediately, for he and other officers had recommended me to Colonel Paine, of the First Louisiana Regiment, who desired an adjutant familiar with the duties of the office. By reason of lack of transportation, a week or two passed before I was able to report; and then I found the army all ready to move out towards Port Hudson. The colonel had been obliged to detail one of his own officers, and it was too late to make any change. I ho<

roken their pledge of cooperation. Under these circumstances a council was held; and the original design of the expedition, namely, the destruction of the whole line of frontier towns, beginning with Portsmouth, was abandoned. They had still a sufficient force for the surprise of a single settlement; and Haverhill, on the Merrimac, was selected for conquest. In the mean time, intelligence of the expedition, greatly exaggerated in point of numbers and object, had reached Boston, and Governor Dudley had despatched troops to the more exposed out posts of the Provinces of Massachusetts and New Hampshire. Forty men, under the command of Major Turner and Captains Price and Gardner, were stationed at Haverhill in the different garrison-houses. At first a good degree of vigilance was manifested; but, as days and weeks passed without any alarm, the inhabitants relapsed into their old habits; and some even began to believe that the rumored descent of the Indians was only a pretext for qua

eding up the right bank. The Richmond and Wilmington Railroad crossed the Neuse two kilometres south of Goldsboroa, over a large wooden bridge, the flooring of which, of latticed wood-work, is supported by stone piers. Having once reached the right bank, the track runs for some distance in close proximity to the river, and, following a south-easterly direction, crosses several small streams over wooden bridges, in the vicinity of which one meets successively the stations of Everettsville, Dudley and Mount Olive. Several wagon-bridges connect the two banks of the Neuse between Goldsboroa and Kingston; the most important is situated at an almost equal distance from these two points, near the village of Whitehall, another a little above the great railroad bridge, and a third, called Thompson's Bridge, between the first two. On the 15th, Foster advanced to within six kilometres of Whitehall, sending three squadrons and two field-pieces, under Major Garrard, to occupy that village.

til it arrived. Without taking into account the fatigue of the infantry brigade which had been in advance of the cavalry since morning, he allowed it to deploy on the right when Ransom came about two o'clock to form the balance of the Fourth division holding both sides of the road. This line, established in the middle of the glade on the slope of the hill in a good position, was reinforced by several batteries of artillery, and was flanked on the left by Lucas' cavalry, and on the right by Dudley's; the latter extended into the second glade. Robinson's brigade of cavalry remained in reserve near the train. For nearly two hours the two adversaries watched each other without any movement. If Lee had not been hindered by the infantry, the artillery, and the train, he might easily have fallen back on the bulk of the army, but his position no longer permitted him either to advance or to retire. Taylor, who is in no hurry to take the offensive, avails himself of this delay to rectify
