number, and occupied a vacant store in Leedstown, where they slept on their arms, having their horses saddled and bridled, close at hand. The writer of this account led the party advancing to the capture of this reserve, having at his side Pete Stewart, an old Mexican soldier, and a tried and trusty scout. From the shadow of an adjacent house, as we drew near to the store, the form of the sentinel was descried under the porch. The moon was just rising, throwing a gleam on the river, the sounht. Our pause was but for a moment, when a dash was made for the steps leading up to the door of the store. The startled sentinel ran for the steps, too, without pausing to fire his carbine. He had nearly reached the uppermost step, when Pete Stewart, grasping him by his coat-tail, pulled him back. The Union horsemen in the store were made prisoners by the time they had well cast aside the blankets under which they had been cosily sleeping. Indeed, so rapid and sudden had we fallen on the

t only a short time before the death of Jones he had made a stirring speech to the old soldiers on Memorial Day. Less curious, perhaps, yet still remarkable, was the fact that almost no commentator upon the death of Jones and the ante-war senatorial group remembered that the last of the Southern Senators to leave the Senate on account of the secession of States is still in the land of the living. Thomas Lanier Clingman, of North Carolina, almost as prolific a coiner of speeches as Senator Stewart or Senator Call, remained in the Senate until the close of the extra session of the Senate which followed the inauguration of Lincoln. The body adjourned on March 28, 1861, and this one lone senator from a seceding State, said good-bye to his associates, and passed away only to meet his Northern friends on the field of battle. Bradbury had ended his career in the Senate several years before Clingman entered the body, and Jones also ante-dated Clingman, the one having been born in 1805

Willey, of Monongalia county, candidate of the Opposition party in Virginia for Lieutenant Governor in 1859, has written a letter opposing disunion. He alludes to the position of Western Virginia in that event, and adds: "I am for Virginia as she is and was, as our fathers exhaled her--one and indivisible. I have deprecated recent manifestations of a desire for her dismemberment. Let her be integrate forever. But if we are to be dragged into secession or disunion, because a mere outside appendage of a Southern Confederacy, defenseless
suance of his orders, crossed and proceeded to the point indicated, Col. Lee remaining on the bluff with 100 men to cover his return. To distract attention from Col. Devens's movements, and to make a reconnaissance in the direction of Leesburg from Edwards's Ferry, I directed Gen. Gorman to throw across the river, at that point, two companies of the 1st Minnesota under cover of a fire from Rickett's battery, and sent out a party of 31 Van Allen cavalry, under Maj. Mix, accompanied by Capt. Chas. Stewart, Assistant Adjutant General, Capt. Murphy, and Lieuts. Pierce and Gouraud, with orders to advance along the Leesburg road until they should come to the vicinity of a battery which was known to be on that road, and then turn to the left and examine the heights between that and Goose Creek, and see if any of the enemy were posted in the vicinity, find out their numbers as nearly as possible, their disposition, examine the country with reference to the passage of troops to the Leesburg a
his and the succeeding carriage, which was the private one of the deceased, were created the Rev. F. St John Thackeray and Mr. James Rodd, cousins of the deceased; Captain Shaw, his brother-in law, and the Hon. R. Curzon. The remaining carriages were those of Mr. Martin Thackeray, Gen. Low, Lord Gardiner, Sir W. Frazer, Hon R Curzon, Earl Granville, Mr. Macan by, Q. C., Sir James Colville, and Messrs. Bradbury and Evans. The funeral service was read by the chaplain of the cemetery, the Rev. Chas. Stewart. When the coffin was placed in the little chapel of the burial ground a strong desire was manifested by nearly every one to enter the building, but the space inside was soon occupied as far as it could be conveniently, and the pervading reverence for the departed was quite sufficient to prevent any unseemly pressure. After the conclusion of the first portion of the service, the mass of those present proceeded to the grave, which is in a quiet spot on the left side of the cemete
