For this purpose the troops will remain in camp to-day, suspending, as far as practicable, all military exercises, and the chaplains of regiments will hold divine service in their several charges at 4 o'clock P. M. to-day. The victories of Jackson in the Valley were speedily followed by the hard-fought battle of Seven Pines. In the evening of the first day of this battle, Gen. Joseph E. Johnston was severely wounded, and Gen. R. E. Lee was placed in command of the army. Nearly the whole month of June was spent in active preparations for the great struggle which was to decide the fate of Richmond. Gen. McClellan's immense army, with every appliance of modern warfare, lay below the city, and gradually approached under cover of immense earthworks and entrenched camps. The Confederate General, having completed his arrangements for the attack on the grand army, opened the bat

Van Dorn greatly annoyed the Northern Generals by his swift and sudden movements against their forces in the neighborhood of Columbia, Franklin, and other places. The main army lay encamped at various points between Chattanooga and Murfreesboro, ready for any movement that might be necessary to checkmate the Federals. General J. E. Johnston assumed personal command of all our forces in that quarter, and established his headquarters at Tullahoma. Rev. S. M. Cherry, one of the most devoted chaplains in the army, gives an account of the revival at this period in McCown's division, to which he was attached as chaplain of the 2d Georgia battalion. For ten weeks they encamped on the same spot freed from all the toil of war except guard duty. In the midst of their ease, the long roll late one afternoon called them to arms

While this heavy bombardment was going on two fires broke out that burned several buildings on Broad and Church streets, the loss being about $150,000. The work of the chaplains in winter quarters went on earnestly, and prepared the way for the extraordinary work of grace which blessed the armies in the last year of the war. From the army at Dalton, Ga., now under command of General Joseph E. Johnston, there came an earnest call for Testaments and Bibles. A soldier showed me. says Rev. S. M. Cherry, a Testament a few days ago that he had brought from his home in Tennessee, and had carried in his side-pocket for over two years. Another solicited a Bible, saying that just before he left Missionary Ridge he found part of an old Bible and read it, and was now desirous of getting the entire volume of inspiration. Often I am approached by the soldiers, who inquire, Parson, is there

Johnston's army, Rev. J. J. Hutchinson describes a most pleasingManassas memory, preached to the soldiers at Dalton. General Johnston and very many other officers were present. On the sa exclaimed, Peace on earth and good will to men. In Gen. Johnston's army, by general orders, all military operations wereton, Ga., they massed their finest Western army against Gen.

Johnston by a movement on Resaca; but the sagacious Confederate n the hour of peace. And of that noble army led by General Johnston in Georgia another writer said: It is wonderfulst not a man. Rev. L. B. Payne says of the work in General Johnston's army: Since my last report, which was for Apr

M. lled by a cannon-ball on Pine Mountain, near Marietta, Ga. In company with General Johnston and several other Generals, he rode out to reconnoitre the Federal lines. ery near them. The group then began to disperse in different directions. General Johnston and Lieutenant-General Polk moved off a few paces together and separated —er down the hill, and General Polk proceeded along the cone of the knoll. General Johnston had scarcely parted from General Polk before a second shell from the same for whom they were intended, was inscribed the names respectively of General Joseph E.

Johnston in North Carolina. The impression made upon the minds of the Federal officers and soldiers is given in the followider reached Mr. Davis at Danville on the 10th of April. He went thence to Greensboro, North Carolina, where he met Generals Johnston and Beauregard, both of whom assured him that in their judgment it was useless to continue the struggle. The surrender of General Johnston followed a few days after this interview, and all resistance to the Federal armies east of the Mississippi ceased.
