s, after a good rest, for which we are very thankful. January 2d, 1865. This bitter cold morning, when we entered the office, we found that our good Major had provided us a New Year's treat of hot coffee. Of course we all enjoyed it highly, and were very grateful to him; and when I returned home, the first thing that met my eye was a box sent from the express office. We opened it, and found it a Christmas box, filled with nice and substantial things from a friend now staying in Buckingham County, for whom I once had an opportunity of doing some trifling kindness. The Lord is certainly taking care of us through His people. The refugees in some of the villages are much worse off than we are. We hear amusing stories of a friend in an inland place, where nothing can possibly be bought, hiring a skilletfrom a servantfor one dollar per month, and other cooking utensils, which are absolutely necessary, at the same rate; another in the same village, whose health seems to require tha
lance above the colors, where it was carried in pride and triumph in all the battles of the regiment. After the battle of Port Republic, General Ewell issued the following order: Headquarters Third Division, June 12, 1862. General Order, No. 30. In commemoration of the gallant conduct of the First Maryland Regiment on June 6th, instant, when led by Colonel Bradley T. Johnson, they drove back with loss the Pennsylvania Bucktail Rifles, in the engagement near Harrisonburgh, Buckingham County, Virginia, authority is given to have one of the captured bucktails (the insignium of the Federal Regiment) appended to the color staff of the First Maryland Regiment. By order of Major-General Ewell. James Barbour, A. A. G. At Crosskeys, on June 8th, Jackson defeated Fremont, and on the gth, General Shields at Port Republic. With such eaglelike swoop he had descended upon each army of the enemy, that his name had come to inspire terror. It was believed that he was about to come d

atriotic devotion. He was as true patriot, as fearless and intrepid a soldier as ever faced an enemy, and as proud of being a volunteer soldier in the Confederate ranks as if he had been commander-in-chief of the army. So much for the rich man's war and the poor man's fight. Each of these soldiers did his duty to the death, rich and poor alike, learned and unlearned. There is another instance of patriotic devotion and loyalty to the Southern cause, that of John M. Spencer, of Buckingham county, Va. Spencer was too young at the beginning of the hostilities to be enrolled as a soldier, but being very patriotic, he volunteered his services with the color guard of the Black Eagle Company for the battle of Seven Pines, Va. He passed through that baptism of fire and leaden hail unscathed, which nerved him to try his luck again at Gaines' Mill, Va. He was more fortunate this time when he received his mark of honor: was wounded and afterwards joined Mosby's command; was captured and c
Through Passage to New York. The Charlotte (N. C.) Bulletin, of Tuesday, has the following: George W. Boulware, from Buckingham county, Va., but recently of Fairfield District, South Carolina, arrived in this city yesterday afternoon over the Charlotte &S. C. Railroad, and was sent forward last night by Express, consigned to Horace Greeley, of the New York Tribune. The said Boulware was shipped from Winnsboro', in the neighborhood of which place he had been engaged in illicit traffic with negroes, and had been guilty of violent incendiary language. He had been striped 150 times, shaved and passage money furnished for his transit northward. About one hundred or more of our fellow citizens took charge of Boulware on his arrival and turned him over to our Marshal, who placed him in the "lock-up" for safe- keeping until the departure of the Express train.--Everything passed off quietly.
Major Anderson. We saw it stated the other day, in the Fredericksburg Recorder, that this officer was a native of Buckingham county, in this State. This is a mistake. Our friend of the Recorder has confounded him with another Major Anderson, who is a native of Buckingham, and who is well known in this city. The latter served with great gallantry in the Mexican war, and was engaged, we believe, in all the battles from Vera Cruz to the city of Mexico. He is a relation of the other, and is, like him, a graduate of West Point. Major Anderson, of Fort Sumter, is a native of Kentucky. He is the son of Captain Richard Clough Anderson, of the revolutionary army, who was born in Hanover county, and lived there until about the year 1790, when he removed to Kentucky. Richard Clough Anderson joined Washington's army at the very commencement of that great officer's career as commander-in-Chief. He was at the battle of Brooklyn, in the retreat through the Jerseys, and commanded the
