assed in this war, and I hope and trust that the traitor will yet be discovered, brought to justice, and suffer the full penalty of the law. My thanks are due to Colonels Anderson and Gillespie for the prompt measures taken to prevent the raising of the white flag in their regiments. In the Second brigade, commanded by the gallant Deshler, it was never displayed. I ordered Col. E. E. Portlock, commanding at St. Charles, to hasten to my relief with what troops he could spare. Capt. Alf. Johnson reached the post on Saturday night and took part in the action of the 11th. Colonel Portlock, at the head of 190 men of his regiment of infantry, made ,the unprecedented march of 40 miles in twenty-four hours, and succeeded in entering our lines amidst a heavy fire from the enemy on his flank. He was just on the eve of bringing his men into action when the surrender took place. In no battle of the war has the disparity of forces been so great. The enemy's force was full 50,000, while our

General Hindman has told how he conveyed information (such as he desired) to the enemy through deception practiced upon disloyal informers. A man calling himself Wm. R. Johnson was permitted to pass at will through the Confederate camps, as a Southern sympathizer going to Missouri, but who was really a Union refugee from Dallas county, Tex., going to Iowa. He passed up to Pilot Knob, where he opened his budget of information to the Federal commander of the post, who transmitted it to General Curtis. Johnson's statement was that he was stopped by Marmaduke at Batesville, February 1st, who admitted him to a conversation with Colonel Ponder and himself, in which Marmaduke said that General Price was to move up White river to Salem and to Rolla, and had about 14,000 men, one-third being mounted; that Marmaduke's intention was to march on Pilot Knob with a command of about 4,000 men, etc. General Curtis, des

dismantled by the shot and shell that, from time to time, had invaded its walls, and asked me to prepare the articles of agreement, which I did, and received for my work, from the well-to-do-looking sutler, a fee of ten dollars, which he paid me with a brand-new ten—dollar greenback—the first, I believe, I ever saw. This stroke of good fortune made me supremely happy, and must have manifested itself in my very countenance, as it was soon noised about among my friends and acquaintances that I had money, and I had numerous applications for loans, which I made very freely, in sums ranging from twenty-five cents to $1, having first reserved enough to purchase for myself a pound of cheese, a pound of coffee, and a box of sardines. I remember that Colonel William R. Johnson, a man of high position and property, entered a sutler's store, where I was making these purchases, and that I shared with him my good fortune by lending him a dollar.

nk of Brigadier-General as young as he was. It has been claimed that General Thomas M. Logan, of South Carolina, commissioned Brigadier-General of Cavalry, February 23, 1865, to report to General Robert E. Lee, with rank to date from February 15, 1865, was the youngest officer of the rank in the Confederate States Army. Another youthful commander is in evidence, General William R. Johnson Pegram, whose signature was W. J. Pegram. He was born in Petersburg, Va., in 1841; grandson of General Wm. R. Johnson, the Napoleon of the turf, son of General James W. Pegram, and nephew of Colonel Geo. H. Pegram, the Confederate commander of the battle of Rich Mountain. W. J. Pegram left the study of law at the University of Virginia in April, 1861, and enlisted as a private in F Company, of Richmond, Va. Willie Pegram was of small stature and wore glasses, but he was every inch a soldier, and born to command. While in camp at Fredericksburg, Va., in May, 1861, he was elected a lieutenant of th
till and waited until the combination against him had been completed, he would have been crushed. Other Generals, that we know of, would have done this, and would have paid the penalty Jackson thought it better to anticipate and baffle the schemes, and he succeeded completely. We have already alluded to his beautiful manc nvres in connection with the captors of Winchester. Can the man who executed these be less than a man of talents? Somebody said John Randolph was mad! The late Wm. R. Johnson said: "I wish he'd bite me." If folly can be taken by inoculation, we wish Jackson would inoculate some others of our Generals. There is such a thing as being too smart, and persons who labor under that misfortunes never do anything in this life. Jackson has gone on, blundering from victory to victory, until he has at last driven the Yankees entirely out of the Valley. A series of similar blunders in this neighborhood, with a similar result, would please the inhabitants better t
