na volunteers, with their regiments, are veterans of so frequent trial that it would be mockery to praise them with words. The country cannot too highly cherish these men. Colonel Wiley had his horse shot from under him. The services of Lieutenant-Colonels Kimberly, Forty-first Ohio volunteers, and Lasselle, Ninth Indiana volunteers, were conspicuous and valuable. Lieutenant-Colonel Kimberly had two horses killed under him. Of the noble dead there are Lieutenant-Colonel Rockingham, Captains McGraw, Johnson, Marker, Lieutenants Lockman and Ewbanks, all of the Sixth Kentucky; Lieutenants Crisswell, Nickeson, and Parks of the Ninth Indiana, with a long list of others, as brave and true, but bearing no title. Many tears are shed for them. My staff were efficient, performing every duty assigned them with promptness and accuracy. Captain H. W. Johnson, Forty-first Ohio, Acting Quartermaster, was with me the entire day on Saturday, and at night brought upon the battle-field such

d, of battle, and march, and bivouac; and yet, again, the yesterday is as a thousand years! How many are the faces we miss of those who quitted like men in the great emprises of that momentous struggle! How sharply have we been reminded even since this flag was furled, that the fell sergeant is strict in his arrest, and that every yesterdaybut lights the way to dusty death. Of the Field and Staff of the Battalion— Pegram, of whom I shall speak presently, was slain at Five Forks. McGRAW, thrice wounded, is gone—a superb soldier, who, enlisting as a private in the Purcell, rose through sheer force of grit and practical skill as an artillerist through every grade—corporal, sergeant, lieutenant, captain of the Purcell, major—to be Lieutenant-Colonel and Battalion-commander. Brave old Joe, with the empty sleeve! John Morris, Ordnance Officer, whose forward spirit ever lifted him, where most trade of danger ranged, was slain at Gettysburg. Hampden Chamberlayne, so long i

ole army—noble Willie Pegram! To live through all those hard-fought battles and then at the last—at Five Forks—surrender his young life upon the field of battle for his country. The following companies composed the battalion: The Purcell, Captain McGraw; the Crenshaw, Captain W. G. Crenshaw; the Fredericksburg, Captain Carter Braxton; the Letcher, Captain Greenlee Davidson, and the South Carolina battery, Captain McIntosh, with W. Gordon McCabe, as adjutant. After remaining in camp some tet him with that Spartan courage which had always been characteristic of the Pegram Battalion, We then hitched up and moved out on a by-road in the woods, where we camped. Next morning, Sunday, April 9th, we hi ched up ready to move when Colonel McGraw, who by sheer force of character and almost unequalled bravery had now risen to the exalted position of commander of this invincible battalion, in company with General R. Lindsay Walker, went to General Lee's headquarters to see what was to b<

nt to us, but by far the greater number remain in captivity. He then tells Colonel Ludlow that he is satisfied that he (Ludlow) has tried to have these prisoners released, but without avail, and then tells him again that the Confederates were compelled to notify him that they must resort to retaliation; but telling him further that he will be notified of each case in which this course is pursued. On the same day he wrote another letter calling Ludlow's attention to the report that Captains McGraw and Corbin had been tried and sentenced to be shot for recruiting for the Confederates in Kentucky, and saying that if these men were executed the Confederate authorities had selected two captains for execution in retaliation; and he concludes this letter with this significant language: In view of the awful vortex into which things are plunging, I give you notice, that in the event of the execution of these persons, retaliation to an equal extent at least will be visited upon your o

A strange marriage. --The Barnwell (S. C.) Sentinel publishes the following: Married, on Saturday last, by W. M. Hunter, Esq., Mr. McGraw, in the 81st year of his age, to Miss Patty Harveston, aged 71, all of the Poor-House.
--Ex-Minister Faulkner is still in jail, which is strictly under military guard. He will soon, probably, be removed to the more comfortable quarters of the Provost Marshal. It is believed by the Government that he has been holding correspondence with the enemy through the Southern Commissioners at Paris, and that a regiment at Richmond is waiting for him to take command of it against the United States.--Besides, something like retaliation may be intended, in view of the fact that Messrs. McGraw and Harris, who went to Manassas on an errand of mercy, while declaring themselves neutral, were seized and thrown into prison. The Washington correspondent of the New York Herald writes: It is said that a correspondence has been found among ex-Minister Faulkner's papers, showing a collusion between him and certain members of the present Union Government, and that among the things laid down in the programme was the meeting held in Baltimore the other evening by Breckinridge an
From Washington. Washington, Aug. 17 --It is proposed to burn all the woods on the banks of the Potomac, to prevent the constant disasters to the Federals from concealed Southerners. Heavy firing was heard to-day in the direction of Aquia Creek. It is stated that Minister Faulkner was arrested as a hostage for Messrs. Ely, McGraw and others. No non-combatants are prisoners. Quartermaster Melggs has gone to New York, to investigate clothing contracts. The Contract Committee are making astonishing discoveries. The Pawnee exchanged a few harmless shots this forenoon at Aquia Creek. President Lincoln has issued a proclamation declaring all commercial intercourse with the seceded States unlawful. Goods going to or coming from them, either by land or water, without Secretary Chase's special permit, will be forfeited, and vessels or vehicles conveying the same will also be forfeited, and all persons engaged will be arrested, and travel from North to S
Messrs. Arnold Harris, McGraw and Ed. --We learn that several members of Congress and other influential and prominent gentlemen are in favor of the release of these individuals. Certain correspondence of Mr. Enris', written in the month of April to friend in New Orleans, proving him to be a friend to the South, has been laid before the authorities. It has never been pretended that Harris did anything more than commit an indiscretion and place himself in an equivocal attitude by approaching our lines without a flag of truce, seeking indirectly for the body of Secretary Cameron's broths.--His letter to General Beauregard was couched in terms ill-calculated to forward him in the business upon which he had come, and his "neutral" position therein claimed was not easily admitted, seeing he came from the enemy's country on the errand he did. But being a resident of the District of Columbia, and proving himself to have been a Southerner in sentiment long before any suspicion atta
