wn up in line, on an extensive field well adapted to the manoeuvring of troops. The men were well armed, comfortably clad, and had the appearance of regulars. Gen. Stuart and Staff were on the field. The General is one of the most graceful riders I ever saw.--He was mounted on his favorite steed, "Highflyer," a noble animal, and display. The brigades of cavalry of this army have been divided into two divisions, Maj-Gen. Wade Hampton commands the first and Maj-Gen. Fitz Lee the second; Gen. Stuart commands both.--As the two now constitute a corps, it would be gratifying to this command to see Gen. Stuart elevated a round higher on the military ladder, or,Gen.
