This air does not deceive. It is well known to the Major's friends that his motto is, Neck or nothing. At Mine Run, when General Meade confronted the Southern lines, the worthy said to me, A soldier's duty is to obey his orders; and if General Stuart told me to charge the Yankee army by myself, I would do it. He would be responsible. It will be seen from the above sketch of the gallant Major, that he is a thorough soldier. In fact he loves his profession, and is not satisfied with performing routine duty.

A cavalry force under General Stuart had moved in front and on the flanks of the column, driving off scouting parties and other too inquisitive wayfarers; and on reaching the junction of the Orathe turnpike, looking more weird and sombre in the half light, came the melancholy notes of the whippoorwill. I think there must have been ten thousand, said General Stuart afterwards. Such was the scene amid which the events now about to be narrated took place. Jackson had advanced with some members of his staff, considerabdistant. Here he lay throughout the next day, Sunday, listening to the thunder of the artillery and the long roll of the musketry from Chancellorsville, where Stuart, who had succeeded him in command, was pressing General Hooker back toward the Rappahannock.
