Second, whose boldness led him so far that he was captured, his horse being shot. Colonel T. L. Manford, of the Second, I regret to say, was president of a court martial in Culpeper Court-House, and did not know of the action in time to join his command until the fight was nearly over. I also recommend for their behavior, Captain Tebbs, of the Second, and Captain Litchfield and Lieutenant Dorsey, of the First; also Major W. D. Morgan, of the First. My personal staff, Major Mason, Captains Fergusson and Bowling, Dr. J. B. Fontaine, and Lieutenants Lee, Ryals, and Minnegerode, rendered great service by their accurate and a quick transmission of orders, and by their conduct under fire. Surgeon Fontaine's horse was killed under him, and my own horse was also shot; but, through the generosity of private John H. Owings, company K, First Virginia cavalry, at tached to my headquarters, was quickly replaced by his. The conduct of couriers Owings, Lee, Nightingale, and Henry Shackelfer

He went some days to the galleries of the Louvre; but his best resource during the few hours not passed on his bed was in visits to the National Library, where he turned over the engravings. Mr. Bemis, who met Sumner in Paris later in his sojourn, was astonished at his efforts in studying engravings,—helped, as he was, in and out of a cab, getting in and out almost on fours, and all the time struggling and hoping for health with heroic resolution. Sumner enjoyed very much at this time Fergusson's History of Architecture, which he had bought just before sailing. Mrs. Grote wrote to Madame du Quaire in July, 1858:— I was glad of an opportunity of informing myself respecting the sanitary condition and prospects of that illustrious martyr. The imposing dignity of his stature, his fine classic head, his resignation under agonizing experiments, and heroic acquiescence in his stricken destiny, form an ensemble which, if I were not now cured of making enthusiastic sacrifices t

ghing when we heard of it, because when Pink left us he said no ten or fifteen Yankees could catch him, he knew the country too well, he was raised there. Little did he think that he would be raised again so soon by the Yankees. The gallant Colonel L. P. Miller commanded the Sixth cavalry from the date of General Dunovant's death, October 1st, 1864. Colonel Miller was one of the best disciplinarians in the army, and is now the only surviving field officer of that historic regiment. Major Fergusson was wounded on the 10th of March, 1865, and a few years ago went to his reward full of honors, both as soldier and citizen. On the 9th day of March, 1865, General Hampton rode ahead of the command all day by himself, and the men would look at each other and say: Look out, boys, Old Wade is fixing a trap for them; we will be into it to-night, while others would say: We will give it to them to-morrow, which forcibly reminded me of what General Mart Gary said to a Yankee general in Virg

Belligerent Darkey. --An overdose of fighting whiskey caused John Jenkins, a free negro, on Tuesday night, to put himself in opposition to law and order to the extent of obtruding himself on the lot of William Watts, where, besides enacting the various antics that distinguish the brute from the man, he mistook Daniel Lomax and Sarah Jenkins for congealed water, and commenced an attack on them with an ice-pick. He was released from the singular delusion under which he labored by the entrance of Watchman Fergusson, who bore him off in triumph to the Second Station House. Yesterday morning John Jenkins was arraigned before the Recorder for his acts and deeds, and nothing being offered in mitigation of their enormity, he was adjudged to receive a corporeal infliction, be committed to jail in default of $100 bail, and to work in the chain-gang for the space of sixty days.

They are as neat as any ever published in Yankee land, and show that our men can do our own work if they have half a chance. MacFarlane & Fergusson are bringing out large editions of seven excellent tracts for the Colportage Board.
