ent their use by the Federal authorities for offensive purposes, even by their partial destruction, if necessary; to urge on the completion of fire-arms out of the materials already partially prepared at the factories, until such time as the machinery could be removed to the interior; and to defend the soil of Virginia from the invasion threatened from that quarter. About this time, there were assembled at Harper's Ferry, 2100 Virginian troops, with 400 Kentuckians, consisting of Imboden's, Rogers', Alburti's, and Graves'. batteries of field artillery, with fifteen guns of the lightest calibre; eight companies of cavalry without drill or battalion organization, and nearly without arms; and a number of companies of infantry, of which three regiments, the 2d, 5th, and 10th, were partially arranged, while the rest had no organization. The Convention had just passed a very necessary law, revoking the commissions of all the militia officers in command of volunteer forces; for their appoin

es; and it was just as the difficult removal of the General was made, that it raged through its short but furious course. General Hill had scarcely flown to assume the command of his line, in order to resist the onset, and protect General Jackson from capture, when he was himself struck down with a violent contusion, and compelled to leave the field, surrendering the direction of affairs to Brigadier-Generals Rhodes and Pender. Colonel Crutchfield, chief-of-artillery, and his assistant, Major Rogers, attempting to make an effective reply to the cannonade which swept the great road, were both severely wounded. In the darkness and confusion, the Federalists regained their barricade, and pushed back the right of the Confederates a short distance; but here their successes ended; and the brigades of Hill stubbornly held their ground in the thickets near the turnpike. The fire now gradually died away into a fitful skirmish, which was continued at intervals all night, without result on ei

ncipal houses, and the town was cleared of all but the military passing through or on duty. Some of the troops marched straight through the town, and bivouacked on the Carlisle road. Others turned off to the right, and occupied the Gettysburg turnpike. I found Generals Lee and Longstreet encamped on the latter road, three-quarters of a mile from the town. General Longstreet and his Staff at once received me into their mess, and I was introduced to Major Fairfax, Major Latrobe, and Captain Rogers of his personal Staff; also to Major Moses, the Chief Commissary, whose tent I am to share. He is the most jovial, amusing, clever son of Israel I ever had the good fortune to meet. The other officers of Longstreet's Headquarter Staff are Colonel Sorrell, Lieutenant-colonel Manning (ordnance officer), Major Walton, Captain Goree, and Major Clark, all excellent good fellows, and most hospitable. Having lived at the headquarters of all the principal Confed-erate Generals, I am able to
and of Major Bradford. We had seen the enemy retire; but his numerical superiority over us would scarcely admit the supposition that he had finally retreated. After my arrival at our encampment, which was some time after dark, I directed Captain Rogers, with his company, K, and Lieutenant Russell, commanding Company D, to proceed with their commands to the field of battle, and to report to the commanding General for orders. These were the two companies which had been left as a guard at Heas stated in the beginning of this report. They had been threatened during the day by a strong detachment of the enemy's cavalry; but performed all the duties which belonged to their position, as will be seen by the accompanying statement of Captain Rogers, in a manner creditable to themselves and their regiment; but they were disappointed because they had not been with us in the battle of the day, and were gratified at the order to march upon night-service, and probably to a dangerous post.

en wounded and carried from the field, and about the same time I received intelligence of the wounding and being carried from the field of those two able and efficient officers, Lieutenant-Colonels K. Bryan, of the Fifth, and B. T. Carter, of the Fourth, both of whom were wounded while bravely discharging their duty. Captain Woodward, acting major of the First Texas, was wounded near me, while gallantly discharging his duty. The Fourth and Fifth Texas, under the command of Majors Bane and Rogers, continued to hold the ground of their original line, leaving the space over which they had made their successive charges strewn with their wounded and dead comrades, many of whom could not be removed and were left upon the field. The First Texas, under Lieutenant-Colonel Work, with a portion of Benning's brigade, held the field and the batteries taken by the First Texas. Three of the guns were brought off the field and secured; the other three, from the nature of the ground and their proxi

in the God of battles, in a few days your General will again fling your banners to the breeze, and march forward to retrieve the recent disasters we have suffered in this department. The General was loudly cheered as he closed his address to the troops, who appeared to be quite satisfied with their new commander. It is worthy of note that the two principal Generals in the rebel army immediately in our vicinity, on the east bank of the Mississippi, are Northern men, and, we believe, from Massachusetts--Pemberton and Ruggles. It is also worthy of note that the dislike of England is quite as strong in the rebel army as in the ranks of the defenders of the Union. in the Third Wisconsin regiment it is a rule that no soldier can leave camp without a pass. The chaplain one day distributed tracts; among them was one headed: Come, Sinner, come! Soon afterward, the tract was picked up in the camp, and under the heading was pencilled: Can't do it; Colonel Rogers won't sign any pass!

ll sing to you, It's of a gallant steamer, now on the ocean's blue; Her name's the Mercedita, rigged as a barquentine, A bully ship and a bully crew as ever yet was seen. Stellwagen is our captain, his knowledge none can doubt, The prizes we have taken have shown that he's about; And there's Lieutenant Abbot, beloved by us all, Then Wilder, Gover, Baldwin, we hope they ne'er will fall. The next is Mr. Dwyer, no braver man can be; And then comes Doctor Mason, no kinder man he; Then Steine and Rogers, they come next, both good men and brave; A better group of officers ne'er crossed the ocean wave. The engineers are all the same, just what we seamen like; There's Doig, Martin, and Munger, who always keep us right. Another name I'll give you now, none bolder or more sound, It's Rockefeller puts us through when we are homeward bound.

ire them at a given signal. The trunnions of the Dahlgren guns resisted the hammers, but those of a large number of the old pattern guns were destroyed. Many of the remainder were spiked, but so indifferently that they were soon repaired. Commander Rogers and Captain Wright, of the Engineers, volunteered to blow up and destroy the Dry-dock. At about two o'clock in the morning, April 21, 1861. every thing was in readiness. The troops, marines, sailors, and others at the yard, were taken o two, reaching their boats in safety, followed by the light of the great fire, and overtook the Pawnee off Craney Island, where the two vessels broke through the obstructions and proceeded to Hampton Roads. The two officers left behind were Commander Rogers and Captain Wright, who failed to reach the boats. They were arrested after day-dawn and were taken to Norfolk as prisoners of war. The great object of the conflagration was not fully accomplished. The attempt was, in fact, a failure.

f Bull's Run, and thirteen thousand of them were soon fighting the ten thousand Confederates on the plateau. Up the slope south of the Warrenton Turnpike, the five brigades, the batteries, and the cavalry moved, accompanied by McDowell, with Heintzelman (whose division commenced the action here) as his chief lieutenant on the field. They were severely galled by the batteries of Imboden, Stanard, Wade Hampton. Pendleton, Alburtis of the Shenandoah Army, and portions of Walton's and Rogers's batteries of the Army of the Potomac. Yet they pressed forward, with the batteries of Ricketts and Griffin in front, and, outflanking the Confederates, were soon in possession of the western portion of the plateau. There was a swell of ground westward of the Henry house occupied by the Confederates, the possession of which was very important. Whoever held it could command the entire plateau. Ricketts and Griffin were ordered to seize it, and plant their batteries there. The Eleventh N
