ially valued the three-inch rifles, which became the favorite field piece. During the winter of 1862-‘63, the artillery was first thoroughly organized under General Pendleton as chief. Batteries were detached from brigades, and were organized into battalions, containing four batteries, usually of four guns each. A number of these battalions were assigned to each corps under the chief of artillery of that corps, while a number of others constituted the general reserve, of which General Pendleton took immediate oversight. All that our supplies admitted was done to thoroughly equip these batteries during the winter, and they were ready for action when the ur army driven from its lines before the men were able to exhaust their cartridge-boxes. One of the last acts of General Early's chief of staff, the gallant Colonel Pendleton, who fell on that field, was to order back this train to prevent the danger of its capture. So excellent was our cavalry service, that rare indeed was the

About half-past 3 o'clock, Colonel (then Major) Pendleton, the assistant adjutant-general, arrived at the hospital and asked to see the General. He stated that General Hill had been wounded, and that the troops were in and success of the cause depended upon his seeing him. When he entered the tent the General said: Well, major, I am glad to see you. I thought you were killed. Pendleton briefly explained the condition of affairs, gave Stuart's message, and asked what should be done. General Jackson was at once interested, and asked in his quickry good, it is all right. He then tried to comfort his almost heartbroken wife, and told her that be had a great deal to say to her, but he was too weak. Colonel Pendleton came into the room about 11 o'clock, and he asked him, Who was preaching at headquarters to-day? When told that the whole army was praying for him, he repli

The Legislature of Virginia passed a highly complimentary resolution on Judge Tyler's character. An obituary written on his death, by Judge Spencer Roane—who ranked with Pendleton and Marshall as one of the first jurists of the nation—gives expression to a tone of moral life that should pervade official station, and is worthy of record in the philosophic literature of the age, and should be a national motto for every period. He remarks in reference to Judge Tyler's character: It is less a tribute of justice to the memory of the deceased than an act of utility to the public to hold up the mirror of his virtues. The present and future generations have a deep interes

Wall, and Company L, under the command of Captain Vosberg—to reinforce the Eighteenth. General Barksdale applied to General Pendleton, who had control of a large train of artillery on the telegraph road on Lee's Hill, not a mile off, and not in position, to send a battery to Taylor's Hill, to command the two bridges that spanned the canal. Instead of sending a battery fr1863, at Marye's Hill, was fully told, though not amiably expressed, by a noble son of Louisiana, who gallantly stood by his gun on the hill, until the last hope of holding it had vanished. Passing to the rear by some artillerists belonging to Pendleton's train, with his face covered with sweat and blackened with powder, and his heart saddened by defeat, he was asked, Where are your guns? He replied with irritation, Guns! I reckon now the people of the Southern Confederacy are satisfied that
