ory of that splendid body of horse, whose deeds gave Stuart his imperishable renown. It was an open secret at Cavalry Headquarters, that of all the splendid and capable staff officers there—Heros Von Borcke (of the Madgeburg Dragoons) and Henry McClellan and young The. Garnett—Venable was closest to Stuart. Whenever most perlious service was to the fore, Venable was selected for that service, and wherever the Headquarter guidon of Lee's horse blazed in the van of trampling squadrons, thererode like a Centaur. Of all his horses, his gallant gray was his favorite, and, just before he breathed out his dauntless soul, after directing that his personal effects shouldd be sent to his wife, turning to his faithful Adjutant-General, Henry McClellan, whispered, Take the bay and let Venable have my gray. He then added, I am going fast: God's will be done, and so the bugles sang Lights Out to the wearied trooper, and he fell on heroic sleep. It may not be impertinent to set down her

, no matter by whom suggested, of passing through Hooker's army or by his rear, and interposing between him and Washington, doubtless possessed great fascination for Stuart. It suited his daring spirit and love of adventure. The prize held out in the way of spoils had its attractions, for if the cavairy on either side had a weakness, it was for intercepting and capturing wagon trains. Probably Stuart was not unmindful of the fame and success he had achieved by his successful ride round McClellan in 1862, and regarded this as offering opportunities for even a more brilliant adventure. If he drew in advance any parallel between the two, he failed in the present instance, to reckon on the fact that its whole success was dependent upon his ability at a critical moment, to unite with a distant and independent force. Stuart's movement began during the night of the 24th, but the meeting at the appointed place between Stuart and Mosby never took place. Stuart found Hooker's army in m

en of this city, of my own regiment, the Ninth Virginia, poured out on the battlefield that rich blood which even at this late day brings sorrow to hearts still beating. The Fourteenth regiment remained in the neighborhood of Shirley until Gen. McClellan embarked his forces and left for Washington. It then went to Hanover Junction, then through Louisa county and on to join Lee's army, which it did on the upper Rappahannock. It was at Second Manassas and was in the Maryland campaign. The from going out. I think they ought to have let our army be seen just as it is. I have now some eighty men without shoes, notwithstanding that I have within the past ten days issued to my regiment one hundred pairs. Burnside had superseded Gen. McClellan in the command of the Union army, and was now moving towards Fredericksburg. When this intention manifested itself, our forces concentrated in the neighborhood of Culpeper Courthouse. Our brigade was ordered thitherward. I remember the fir

The main feature of his book is his praise of McClellan, who he says would have whipped the rebels at Manassas had he gotten the command two weeks earlier!

He will be sure to make an essay to reach his pocket.--The fun of it all is that this book is putted by the Herald. It is commended to the Government for its independent criticism of the Generals and the Administration, and they are advised to read and profit by its wise counsels! The Examiner adds to the list of notabilities who have joined the Northern cause, by naming the President's carriage driver! The carriage driver has not yet published his book!

Dwight has gone to Port Hudson on special duty. The banished trio subsequently sent southward in custody of a United States policeman, to join the party under Capt Dwight, failed to arrive in time, and were delivered over to the Provost Marshal at Vicksburg, to be forwarded by him. They were, as may be recollected, Henry McClellan, D. R. Collins, and D. Walker. The Yankee draft — Regular troops taken from Meade's army to Pick up conscripts — the conscripts turn out to be. Old deserters — troops sent to New York to enforce the draft, &c. The accounts of the draft by the latest Northern papers continue to be cheering in their character. The drafted men don't go into the army. The Massachusetts men don't seem to come to time at all. In the 9th district of that State eighty per cent. of those drafted were<
