France, was arrested in Washington by the Provost Marshal. The order for his arrest was issued from the War Department. A heavy detachment of infantry accompanied the Marshal to guard against any disturbance that the arrest might prompt. Mr. Faulkner acknowledged the authority, and signified his readiness to accompany the officer. He was taken to the jail, where the other prisoners of war are confined. Mr. Faulkner occupies a lower floor of the jail, and has a ward adjoining that of Dr. Fleming, of Virginia, who is also a prisoner and a man of wealth and influence. When first arrested, he was somewhat excited, but he shortly recovered himself, and during the afternoon conversed freely with one of the officers on the condition of France. When asked how the rebellion was regarded there, he answered, France, sir, deeply regrets it. He also stated that he had his passes all ready, and intended to leave for his home in Virginia today. In his conversation he carefully avoids expre
to denounce as unworthy of public favor. It is, as the author, Mr. Fleming, admits, a revised edition of Webster's Spelling-Book — in otheris the duty of the Southern press to unite in putting it down. Mr Fleming tells us in his preface that no better spelling-book than Dr. Webon of every cultivated Southern gentleman, and this orthography, Mr. Fleming tells us, he has invariably retained. Centre he spells center, h of itself to damn the book and drive it out of circulation. Mr. Fleming says further, that in very few instances Webster's pronunciationin these instances is a New-England provincialism. Here, again, Mr. Fleming displays gross ignorance. To this day, the flat, or, as we shoue extremely to speak harshly of literary labor of any kind. But Mr. Fleming has labored very little in reproducing this bit of Yankee clap-tevents, we must not be duped with a Yankee spellingbook, such as Mr. Fleming and Messrs. Toon and Co. are attempting to palm upon us.--Richmo

Childs and Barnett, (the captain being absent recruiting,) John K. Perley, (the captain falling out from exhaustion, being sick when he joined the expedition,) Lieut. Webster, in command of company H after the captain was wounded — all commanding companies — are entitled to great credit. Lieuts. Fleming, Cooper, Burdett, Donaldson, Henry Perley, (the latter in command of company F after the captain was wounded,) sustained their previous high reputation. Surgeon Humphries, of this regiment, Acting Brigade Surgeon, is entitled to very great credit, having been constantly in attendance on the wounded till after their arrival at this place, and upwards of twenty-eight hours without sleep. I would also, on behalf of Surgeon Humphries and myself, express our own and the thanks of the entir

h we placed the General. It was already occupied in part by a person whom I did not then recognize, but whom I afterwards found to be Colonel Crutchfield, of the artillery, who had had his leg broken. General Jackson at this time complained of great pain in the palm of his left hand, and repeatedly asked for spirits, of which we were unable to find any for a long time, but Dr. Whitehead at length procured a bottle of whisky. After we had gone a short distance with the General in the ambulance, we stopped at the house of Melzei Chancellor to get some water for the General and Colonel Crutchfield. * * At Melzei Chancellor's, Dr. Hunter McGuire, Chief Surgeon of our corps, joined us and took charge of the General. * * * * * * * * * Arriving at the hospital, I found Drs.

his prisoners, if any were taken? etc. I began to think he had no stomach for the work, but at last, having isolated the chances of success from cause of failure, with the care of a chemist experimenting in his laboratory, he rose and asked for Fleming, the superintendent of the railway, who was on the train by which he had come. Fleming appeared — a little man on crutches (he had recently broken a leg), but with the energy of a giant — and at once stated what he could do in the way of movingFleming appeared — a little man on crutches (he had recently broken a leg), but with the energy of a giant — and at once stated what he could do in the way of moving supplies on his line, which had been repaired up to the Tennessee boundary. Forrest's whole manner was now changed. In a dozen sharp sentences he told his wants; said he would leave a staff officer to bring up his supplies; asked for an engine to take him back twenty miles north to meet his troops; informed me he would march with the dawn, and hoped to give an account of himself in Tennessee. Moving with great rapidity, he crossed the Tennessee, captured stockades, with their garrisons, bu

ement at the Wilderness and in the movement to Spotsylvania, taking part in the charge and capture of the salient early in the morning of May 12 at Spotsylvania Court House, and engaging again in the assault on May 18. It took active part at Cold Harbor June 3, when Colonel Byrnes was mortally wounded. Sharing in the assault of Petersburg June 16, it took most active part afterward in the siege, engaging at Weldon Railroad in July and at Deep Bottom, Charles City Cross Roads and Reams' Station in August. Dec. 13, 1864, those of the regiment not .re-enlisted left for Massachusetts, and the remainder, as a battalion of five companies under Major Fleming, remained in service before Petersburg, took part in the final operations about the city in the spring of 1865 and joined in the pursuit of the Confederates to Farmville. Encamping after the surrender at Burkesville, it returned to Alexandria May 15, and was mustered out of service June 30, 1865, returning to Massachusetts on July 5.
