The metalic case containing the corpse. was borne into the church and up in the centre aisle to the altar, the organ pealing a solemn funeral dirge and anthem by the choir. Among the pall-bearers we noticed Brigadier-General John H. Winder, General George W. Randolph, General Joseph R. Anderson, Brigadier-General Lawton and Commodore Forrest. Among the congregation appeared President Davis, General Bragg, General Ransom, and other civic and military officials in Richmond. A portion of the funeral services according to the Episcopal church was read by Rev. Dr. Peterkin, assisted by other ministers, concluding with singing and prayer. The body was then borne forth to the hearse in waiting, decorated with black plumes and drawn by four white horses. The organ pealed its slow, solemn music as the body was borne to the

y much exposed. It is now due that I should mention my personal staff. To that gallant young officer, Flag Lieutenant Minor, I am much indebted for his promptness in the execution of signals, for renewing the flag-staffs when shot away — being thereby greatly exposed; for his watchfulness in keeping the Confederate flag up; his alacrity in conveying my orders to the different divisions, and for his general, cool and gallant bearing. My aid, Acting Midshipman Rootes, of the navy, Lieutenant Forrest, of the army, who served as a volunteer aid, and my clerk, Mr. Arthur Saint Clair, Jr., are entitled to my thanks for the activity with which my orders were conveyed to the different parts of the ship. During the hottest of the fight they were always at their posts, giving evidence of their coolness. Having referred to the good conduct of the officers in the flag-ship, immediately under my notice, I come now to no less pleasing task when I attempt to mark my approbation of the bearin

any of them have, but venture this tribute to Ashby, because I believe he was the peer of any and deserves equal praise. He was as brave and as modest about it as Hampton, with all the dash and fire of Fitz. Lee or Stuart. Neither of them had a better eye for defence. They could not swoop down quicker when a flank was exposed or an opportunity given than he. They had better advantages in camp and by education, but he was a natural soldier, and had his life been spared, would have equaled Forrest in his boldest moves. General Ewell formed the highest admiration for Ashby, and told me the day Ashby was killed, that such a man, with a good disciplined mounted regiment, and an infantry regiment attached to it, who could swing by a strap to each horse's neck, when sharp, quick and devilish work was wanted, would be equal to the best division in the army, and said he would rather have it. Then he said: A man could do something without being cramped as I am, and never know what is to

Hatch has driven Gen. Chalmers across the Tallahatchie river, punishing the latter's forces severely. Gen Richardson, with a force of rebels reported at from 1,500 to 2,000, this morning struck the Memphis and Charleston Railroad, six miles east of Salisbury, burning the trestlework, tearing up the track, and destroying the telegraph.
