ervice up to the time of my ordering the advance. The first shot fired, from the Parrott guns of Captain Hedden's battery, under the direction of Captain Culbertson, Chief of Artillery of my division, wounded Colonel Misner, and killed his orderly and three men.

Major Watts, Inspector-General; Major Halliday, Chief Commissary; Lieutenant George Moorman, Aide-de-Camp; Lieutenant Tilghman, Aide-de-Camp ; rendered the most efficient and valuable service. I notice with great pleasure, also, Lieutenant Barbour, commanding my body-guard, together with Lieutenant Lundy, of that company. These officers and their men rendered me great aid. The timely service of Lieutenant Barbour, on my right wing, may have saved us probably from serious injury. The whole force engaged on our side may be stated as not exceeding thirteen hundred men,

At the third annual reunion in New Orleans, La., 189 organized camps of United Confederate Veterans were represented, and a number of camps have since been organized, bringing up the total number to near 260. It is to be hoped that the entire South will, at no distant day, be covered by the camps of those Confederate veterans who have survived the casualties of the bloody conflict (1861-1865) and the ravages of time.
