Muller. Course of elementary fortification. Pasley. This is a work of much detail-useful, no doubt, to an uneducated engineer soldier, but to an officer at all acquainted with his profession, it must seem ridiculously minute. To the above list might be added a long list of books on that branch of the engineer's art called constructions; but as this part of the profession is, in some degree, common both to the civil and military engineer, it is not deemed necessary to include works of this character in a list of books strictly military.
lunteers, at seven o'clock on the morning of the 21st instant, and advanced to the position designated. The command was composed of Capt. McCrea, Company D, Capt. Hauser, Company I, Capt. Hendricks, Company E, and Capt. Dille, Company G--about three hundred and fifty men. The companies were immediately deployed around the hill thout hesitation that universal cheerfulness, promptness, courage, and good sense characterized their action in the fight. I will mention the brave conduct of Capt. Hauser, in fighting in company with his men. musket in hand, upon the very brow of the hill, until disabled by a wound, though he continued on the field all day and dstol in hand, braced themselves before the fugitives when they saw them flying, and threatening to shoot the first who attempted to pass, soon restored order. Capt. Hauser, of the Indiana troops, skirmishing in front of the enemy, had a finger shot off, and obtaining leave from his colonel, came back to our hospital, had the stum
I put him down where he could wool the hounds. The major, you know, never before had a compliment paid to his homely, sturdy face, being rather hard-favored. Next day some of the boys got the joke on him by telling him they had heard his beauty complimented. He asked for the compliment, got it, and drily remarked, that it was rather an equivocal recommendation of his pretty face. Almost every officer fought gun in hand, except Cols. Coburn and Woodford, who were armed with navies. Captain Hauser, Adjutant Durham, Capt. Dille, Lieutenants Maze and Scott, more than the men themselves, blazed away at the rebels. What could not men do with such examples set them. When part of the Kentucky boys fled, Capt. Alexander screamed out to the men, Boys, if you are such damned cowards as to run, I'll stay and die. Instantly a boy scarce sixteen years old turned back, ran up to the captain's side, saying, Yes, cap., and I'll stay and die with you. He did stay, and others followed his exam

After resting and collecting our men, we returned to the field and were posted in support of the Rockbridge Artillery—old friends, as it was attached to the Stonewall Brigade, and the present writer had formerly been a member of it. This battery was stationed on top of the hill from which we had advanced to the last attack, and just above the farmhouse (Hauser's), in front of which we had lain. We remained here during the afternoon, when we were moved to a piece of woods a short distance to our left and front, where we remained all the next day (18th). We were expecting another attack all that morning until truces were made for the burial of the dead, whether officially or informally I do not know, but the burial of the dead by both sides went on in our front all that day. That night General Lee withdrew his whole army quietly without loss, and
Departure of Missionaries. --A scene of unusual interest took place on Commercial wharf this morning, on the occasion of the departure of two bands of Missionaries, on the fine ship Sea King, for Madras and Calcutta. For the Ceylon Mission, under the care of the American Board, there were Nathan Ward, M. D., and wife, Rev. John C. Smith and wife, Rev. J. A. Bates; and for the Methodist Mission in India, under the patronage of the Methodist Episcopal Church, Rev. Mr. Jackson and wife, Rev. Mr. Hauser. A very large congregation of their friends, and others interested in the missions, assembled to see them off. Religious services were held on board, which were conducted by Bishop Baker. After the ship left the wharf the audience on shore joined in singing the missionary hymn.-- Boston Journal,30th.
