hese accounts can be reconciled with that in The Century. Upon reading General Beauregard's article, I wrote to General Fitzhugh Lee, who was Ewell's assistant adjutant-general at Manassas, asking his recollection of what took place. I have liber General Ewell at once issued the orders for his command to cross the run and move out on the road to Centreville. General Lee then describes the recall across Bull Run and the second advance of the brigade to make a demonstration toward Centrevt once and as rapidly as possible, for the Lewis house, the field of battle on the left. Ewell moved rapidly, sending General Lee and another officer ahead to report and secure orders. On his arrival near the field, they brought instructions to hand General Ewell begged General Beauregard to be allowed to go in pursuit of the enemy, but his request was refused. General Lee adds: That this splendid brigade shared only the labor, and not the glory of that memorable July day was not the fault

Lee—a poem. By Major H. T. Staunton, of Frankfort, Ky. We saw the fragile maiden, May, Trip down the paths of morning, And queen July in central day, Her flower throne adorning. And weeping trees in sombre lines Took up an anthem murmur, When August, with her trailing vines, Went out her gates of Summer. Now yellow husks are o heavens— Still all the years have fading days, And all the days have evens. Enough—whatever else may be— That in this Autumn weather, The verdure of the world and Lee Have silent fled together. So prone are men where'er they move To tread the ways of evil, They seldom hold their kind above A common grade and level. But Lee, besLee, beside his fellowmen, Stood, over all, a giant— The higher type—the perfect plan— God fearing, God reliant. A giant not alone in fields Where bent the sanguine Reaper, Where death threw o'er his harvest-yields An autumn crimson deeper; But with the iron strength of will He sought his life to fashion, He held his ruder pulses

, J. M. Brice and McAlilly. Twenty years have passed since the war made its last rugged track over these quiet fields, and the actors in its scenes are fast passing away. A few years ago tidings of the death of our own grand old Commander, General Lee, sped from hamlet to hamlet, and a wail swept over the length and breadth of our Southland, which was not without response from the North. But the other day the great champion of the Union, General Grant, laid himself down to die, and passed l of Virginia, that Virginia which took an equally noble part in framing our grand institutions of liberty, and in our effort to maintain them. We revere her for giving us Washington and Jefferson, Madison and Henry. We love her as the mother of Lee and Jackson, Stuart and Hill, and each and every one of us, individually and collectively, hold her ever in grateful admiration for the heroic courage and pure womanly tenderness of her fair daughters.

Lee's division, of which he (Rosser) was given command, as Brigadier-General Wickham had resigned. The horses of Rosser's brigade had beet at, when behind their works at Charlestown, and Early only had, say 14,000? Fitz.

ered a reward for any dead man found with spurs on. Soon, however, the point of such jokes was effectually destroyed by Jeb Stuart's exploits, and afterwards Hampton's masterly handling of the cavalry of the Army of Northern Virginia, demonstrated to friend and foe that this arm of the service was safe for neither, and by him Sheridan was taught whatever he knew of mounted infantry manoeuvres. Yet the remorseless forgetfulness of history bids fair to overlook the cavalry while the memory of Lee's incomparable infantry will deservedly be blazoned on her pages as long as hearts exist capable of being thrilled by the record of world-renowned battlefields. As a compensation in part for this, the nature of the cavalry service permitted of more individuality, and thus the personal dash and prowess of a leader were more frequently instrumental in accomplishing very important results. This was the case in the incident I am about to relate. A few days after the surprise of Kilpatrick's

o be attached to another brigade. Gould's was replaced by McNeal's regiment, which being ordered on detached service on the Trinity River, never coalesced with the brigade. From Pittsville, the brigade moved to the vicinity of Hempstead, where it camped at a short distance from the infantry division of Major-General J. C. Walker who, after General Wharton's death, had also been assigned to the command of the cavalry corps. There, days of gloom and despondency came on us. The news of General Lee's surrender was received; and soldiers considering the war at an end, chafing under military restrictions, anxious to be with their families, left of their own accord, and soon, the army of Texas disintegrated. To the honor of Debray's and Wood's regiments be it said, that they sternly rejected all enticements to join in the break up, and remained faithful to their colors. Upon General Debray's affirmative answer to General Magruder's enquiry whether his brigade could still be trusted

Watered and fed my horses, and returned to the same position about half-past 2 o'clock the next morning. I remained in this position until after the heavy cannonade of the 3d. I was then ordered by Major Huger to report to you or to General Longstreet, about half a mile to my left. Whilst taking my battery to the place indicated, I was halted by General Lee, and directed not to go into position until I saw you. It was a considerable time before I could find you; the main fighting had ceased when you came to where my battery was. About ten o'clock P. M. we left the field and went into park near the barn used as a hospital. All of my men, non-commissioned and privates, with one or two exceptions, acted well. They remained by their guns, though hungry and exceedingly fatigued. On the 5th July we took up our line of march for Hagerstown, Mary

About 8 A. M. I sent Major Campbell Brown, of my staff, to General Lee to report my position. In reply, he instructed me to regulate my march by General A. P.
