to be hatched at Warrenton Sulphur Springs by the Lees, the Hamptons and others, he allows the zeal of the partisan to blind the judgment of the historian; and that in other statements he has been misled. Advance and retreat. By Lieutenant-General J. B. Hood. New Orleans: Published by General G. T. Beauregard, for the benefit of the Hood Orphan Memorial Fund. We have just received this book, and must reserve a notice for our next number. But we may say now that these personal experiences in the United States and Confederate States armies, by the chivalric and lamentened Hood, cannot but be of deep interest; that his side of the story, however men may differ in reference to certain unfortunate controversies of which it treats, will be valuable material for the future historian; and that as the proceeds of the sale go to the relief of his helpless orphans, the book ought to have a wide sale in every section of the country, and ought especially to find a place in the homes of a

rations were conducted by General Longstreet are worthy of the highest praise. He was worthily seconded by Major-General Hill, of whose conduct and courage he spoke in the highest terms. Major-General Smith's division moved forward at four o'clock--Whiting's three brigades leading. Their progress was impeded by the enemy's skirmishers, which, with their supports, were driven back to the railroad. At this point Whiting's own and Pettigrew's brigade engaged a superior force of the enemy. Hood's, by my order, moved on to co-operate with Longstreet. General Smith was desired to hasten up with all the troops within reach. He brought up Hampton's and Hatton's brigades in a few minutes. The strength of the enemy's position, however, enabled him to hold it until dark. About sunset, being struck from my horse, severely wounded by a fragment of a shell, I was carried from the field, and Major-General G. W. Smith succeeded to the command. He was prevented from resuming his attack
