C. Cabell, late Lieutenant-Colonel 18th Virginia Infantry. Henry Alexander Carrington, son of Henry and Louisa Cabell Carrington, was born at Ingleside, Charlotte county, Va., on the 13th day of September, 1832. His ancestors on both sides had been distinguished in the annals of Virginia history. He was educated at the Virgini volunteer his services from his native county. The Charlotte Rifles, a company of the 18th Virginia Infantry, was the first organized body to enlist from Charlotte county. In May, 1861, Colonel Carrington was commissioned by Governor Letcher lieutenant-colonel of the 18th Virginia.

the author of Home Reminiscenses of John Randolph of Roanoke, a work which in the testimony presented of those familiar with that erratic genius, seems to give the key to his eccentricity.—Ed.] The Charlotte Cavalry was organized in Charlotte county, Virginia, U. S. A., in 1861. On the 27th May, 1861, it was mustered into the service of the Southern Confederacy at Ashland, Va. It served in the War 1861-5, first in Maj. George Jackson's Battalion, with one Company from Augusta county and ptain James A. Wilson, of Churchville, Augusta County, Va. A roll of the members of the Charlotte Cavalry was published in Vol. XXVIII of the Southern Historical Society Papers, and it was also entered in the records of County Court of Charlotte County, Virginia. This memorial was prepared by Lieutenant Samuel M. Gaines, now of Washington, D. C., from the records in that city and from his own notes and recollections, and was carefully reviewed by myself. It was sent to many of the surviving

one morning in March, 1864, we were startled by the heavy pounding on the oaken doors of Sabot Hill, the charming home of James A. Seddon, secretary of war of the Confederacy, and situated on the James river, twenty miles above Richmond. Mr. Seddon was a lawyer by profession, had been a congressman, and was a man of great refinement, experience in public affairs, and wealthy. His wife was the beautiful and brilliant Sallie Bruce, one of the large family of that name in Halifax and Charlotte counties. Her sister, Ellen, another famous belle of the Old Dominion in the palmy days, was married to James M. Morson, and lived on the adjoining plantation, Dover, one of the most aristocratic homesteads in Virginia. Many of Richmond's inner circle enjoyed the famous social gatherings here, where the society was as delightful as that which adorned the literary circles of the British metropolis in the golden age of Scott, Coleridge, Moore, and Leigh Hunt. Mr. Morson and his brother-in-l

unexpected fire of a larger force of the Yankee army. In the disorder and confusion amid a storm of bullets, Captain W. Stuart Symington, of Pickett's staff, rushed at full speed on horseback to my regiment, the Fifty-sixth Virginia, and seized the flag from the color bearer and held it aloft, calling to the men to rally. Some were falling on all sides of him and his horse was shot through the neck. I was standing near the head of the horse, with Lieutenant Frank C. Barnes, now of Charlotte county, on my right. This reminded me of pictures I had seen about battles in books when a boy. But Huger's Division came to our relief, over-lapping and capturing the whole force along with General McCall. General Pickett was not there, as he was wounded a few days before at Gaine's Mill. I will never forget the looks of a tall, whiskered North Carolinian as he passed near me, with his musket pointing to the front, saying, They got you boys; but get out of the way and we will give them he

The case will be called at the next term of the Circuit Court, which meets on the 3d day of next June. His friends entertain no doubt of his ultimate acquittal. Thos. Harvey, indicted for stabbing Ed. A. Harvey, was yesterday discharged by the Court, a nolle prosequi being entered in the case. The offence was committed in this city, about three years ago. Both parties were from Charlotte county, Va. The District Court, Judge Wm. Daniel presiding, was convened yesterday. There are no important cases on docket. Mr. John Rucker, of this city, made a good speculation in land some few years past, the Orange and Alexandria Railroad Depot being located on a portion of the purchase. Mr. R. paid $3,500 for 4 ½ acres, and sold one acre and a quarter to said Company for the snug sum of $30,000, and now holds the residue, for which he has been offered a still larger sum.--The im
