eavy loss from our ranks had naturally cast a deep feeling of depression over the rest of the little band. The brave Captain E. J. Willis, who took command after Morrison fell, held up his overcoat for me to count the bullet-holes, and I counted about eight. It was perforated at least six or eight times by bullets; besides, his metal scabbard was cut in two. Willis was, before the war, pastor of Leigh Street Baptist church. Of the fourteen officers who entered the fight, one, Captain A. V. England, of Company D, was killed, and six—Captain E. M. Morrison, commanding the regiment; Lieutenant Bumpass; Lieutenant J. K. Fussell, our own J. K.; Lieutenant J. H. Allen; Lieutenant George Berry, and Lieutenant George P. Haw—were wounded. Of the 114 non-commissioned officers and privates, 10 were killed and 58 wounded. We held our part of the lines until after dark, when we withdrew about a hundred yards to the crest of a hill in our rear, where we lay unmolested all the next day,

nia lost at Sharpsburg 58 per cent. of its men, which is 23 per cent. more than the Light Cavalry Brigade of the English army, lost in the world-heralded Battle of Balaklava. Our folks write poems in honor of the Light Brigade and our schoolboys declaim Tennyson's verses; but what do we know of our own boys who stood proof on this red day at Sharpsburg? Fourteen officers and one hundred and fourteen men of the Fifteenth Virginia were in that fight, of whom one officer was killed (Captain A. V. England) and six were wounded, including Captain E. M. Morrison. Of the non-commissioned officers and privates ten (10) were killed and fifty-eight (58) wounded. General Paul J. Semmes' Brigade of McLaws' division consisted of two Georgia and two Virginia regiments. In his report, General Semmes says: The loss in killed and wounded was of the Fifty-third Georgia, 30 per cent.; 32d Virginia, 45 per cent.; Tenth Georgia, 57 per cent.; Fifteenth Virginia, 58 per cent.

Correspondence of the Richmond Dispatch.Richmond soldiers in Camp. Headquarters Young Guard Camp, Near Ashland, Hanover Co., May 11. We are getting along finely in the routine of the soldier's life. Our 1st Sergeant, A. V. England, has proved his capacity in the arduous duties of his position, and every man responds with alacrity to orders, early and late. Among the companies quartered here are the Governor's Mounted Guard and the Henrico Troop. The Young Guard are divided into six squads, and each squad details two of their number to cook. Some of these cooks bra? loudly of their abilities now. We cook in the open air, and form pot-racks of cedar stumps. Corporal E. R. Hopkins, the chief cook of our squad, insists that he will "be able to keep a hotel" if he ever returns to Richmond. Just imagine a fastidous city gent, with his "store clothes" on, who, when at home, would not condescend to approach within forty feet of a kitchen without a twitch of the nasal organ,
Personal. --Mr. F. J. Cridland, who acceptably filled the post of Assistant Consul of the British Government for some years, in this city, arrived here yesterday, fourteen days from England. While he expresses no opinion as to the recognition of the Southern Confederacy, he is yet unable to see how England can get along without cotton.
Foreign Items. --The steamer Kedar, which arrived at New York on Thursday, brings Liverpool dates 40 the 8th inst. The London Times ridicules the idea of the Southern Confederacy not reviving the slave trade; and in another article, speaking of the American tariff, says that England must consider how she deals with States who begin with a flagrant departure from the rule of amity. The same paper, in an article on American affairs, points to the English resistance in the first revolution in America as a warning against a forcible resistance to a disruption which appears inevitable. Warlike rumors compose the main staple of the news.
he American flag. (Applause, A voice: "That's so,") There was in the French army and people a desire to blot out the dishonor heaped upon them in the past by England. The French Emperor stood upon his own fixed policy, and that was, that the American Government had given no cause for interference, and that the French Government would not interfere unless such cause was given. That was Napoleon's own declaration; and yet it had been over and over again stated that Napoleon had proposed to England to interfere. Earl Russell himself had been compelled today, however, that no nation had proposed to the English Government to interfere in the affairs of the American people. But some people saw cause for suspicion in the French expedition to Mexico, and thought Napoleon was going to establish a monarchy there. He (Mr. Clay) did not believe anything of the kind; and Napoleon had himself declared, in a letter to one of his Generals, that all he wanted to do was to vindicate French arms a
