nts which I have read of the battle. The gallant 5th South Carolina Regiment behaved with a bravery and determination which entitles them to one of the brightest pages in the history of the battle of Manassas.

The difficulty had its origin with a man in the gallery, who persisted in hanging his legs over the railing. His posture excited some remark from the auditory, many of whom cried "Put him out," "Put him out," &c. The leader of the troupe was at the time singing the favorite "My Maryland," and a portion of his audience, mistaking the meaning of the persons who shouted "Put him out," became violently excited. In the hubbub, pistols were drawn and discharged. One of the person present, a policeman, named Washington Jenkins, while trying to quiet the disturbance, was shot in the right shoulder. It was supposed that others were wounded, though their names have not yet come to our notice.
