Goochland Light Dragoons. Organization and first outpost Experience—The Roll. To the Editor of the Dispatch: I send you herewith a role of the Goochland Light Dragoons, late Company F, 4th Virginia Cavalry, Wickham's Brigade, later Stuart's, Fitz. Lee's Division, Army of Northern Virginia. The troop left Goochland, Va., on May 9, 1861, and proceeded to Richmond, Va., and was quartered for the night in a new building on Franklin street, below the Exchange Hotel. I think the building was known later as Westcott's Hotel. The next day (the 10th) the troop marched to Ashland, and was quartered in the Methodist church. It was mustered into the service of Virginia by Colonel Richard Ewell. It remained at Ashland about ten days, and was then ordered to Manassas, and on its arrival there marched to Fairfax Station, on the Orange & Alexandria Railroad, and went into camp to await the coming of the Yankees, and to do picket duty on the outpost. The next morning early a cour

pped and sent to the field from Camp Lee during the time which elapsed between November, 1861, and June, 1862. Among them may be mentioned some which can be called to mind, commanded by Captain Marmaduke Johnson, John L. Eubank, N. A Sturdivant, Captain J. Taylor Martin, and two other batteries, which constituted the battalion of Rev. F. J. Boggs, W. G. Crenshaw, G. G. Otey, the old Fayette Artillery, Captain Henry Coalter Cabell, all of Richmond. Then there were those of W. D. Leake, of Goochland; Charles Bruce, of Charlotte; Joseph W. Anderson, of Botetourt; Pichegru Woolfolk, of Caroline; Henry Rives, of Nelson; Colonel J. W.

of his arduous duties as circuit judge. When he was transferred to the Supreme Court of Appeals, in 1834, he was president of the general court and presiding over the Fourth district and the Seventh circuit, composed of Chesterfield, Powhatan, Goochland, Hanover and Henrico counties. There were then in the State ten districts and twenty circuits. He had for some years presided, when the arrangement was different, over the Fourth circuit, composed of Goochland, Henrico, Hanover, King and QueeGoochland, Henrico, Hanover, King and Queen, Essex, Caroline and Spotsylvania. When he had to give up Essex, it came under the jurisdiction, for one year, of Judge Brown, and then of Judge Semple. It had been in Judge Brown's district when he held his courts in Fredericksburg and Williamsburg. In 1832, the circuit courts were increased to twenty, and Judge Brown was placed over the Fourth circuit, embracing Essex. When Judge John Williams Green, of the Court of Appeals, died, his place had to be filled. The election for his succ

] A brief history and roster of the command. To the Editor of the Dispatch: I herewith enclose roster of Company D, 44th Virginia Infantry, Colonel W. C. Scott, of Powhatan county, for publication in your Confederate column. I think it will be of interest at least to the surviving members of the regiment. This company was mustered into the service of the Confederate States on the 9th of June, 1861, as from Louisa. The men, in fact, were about in equal numbers from Louisa, Goochland, Hanover and Fluvanna. After drilling at Camp Lee a few weeks, it was ordered to reinforce General Garnett at Rich Mountain, W. Va. It arrived just in time to witness his defeat and death. It then fell back to a strong position, where the Staunton and Parkersburg turnpike crosses the Greenbrier river. Colonel Edward Johnson, of the 12th Georgia, and others, under command of General Henry R. Jackson, arrived and fortified this position. The Federals, under General Reynolds, advanced and

aint smile, and yet with tears in his eyes, said: Colonel, if I ever get home, and should have a boy baby, I will name him for you, and strange as it may seem, there is a nice young man now living in old Gwinnett, Martin's old home, named Lovick Thomas Martin. I had two horses, and complimented my major, J. J. McClendon, by giving him one of them, and my bay, a fine, splendid animal, I mounted and departed, sad and alone, for my home, and—my tale is told.

Roster of Goochland county Troop. [from the Richmond, Va., dispatch, December 29, 1901.1 The following roster of the Goochland Troop, after much agony and bloody sweat, has been at last made up, and it is thought to be correct as possible by those who are likely to know. It was prepared in collaboration. This list of gallant comrades would never have crystalized but for the energy of Comrade Charles H. Powell. After the elapse of more than a quarter of a century, it looks out from behind the veil of intercepting years that are fraught with anguish, patience and pathos. Among the members of this company was the heroic Jim Pleasants, the man without a model, of high-erected thought and patriotic purpose, who had rather agonize in Hades rightly than enjoy bliss beyond the cerulean improperly. Napoleon I said that Tom Paine, by virtue of his patriotic deeds in behalf of the American patriots during the revolution, was entitled to a monument of brass. So say we of the gallant

conditions, low stages of water, etc., was easily fordable, and was the route taken by Mr. Samuel A. Guy, and other gentlemen in going across from Contention, in Goochland, to Centre Hill, in Powhatan County. The writer, prior to the war, lived for a number of years in this vicinity, and is familiar with the above mentioned facts.an hardly estimate, even at this late day, the providential blessing to the women of Richmond of the flood that prevented Dahlgren from crossing James River from Goochland into Powhatan on the 1st day of March, 1864. But Dahlgren, though thwarted in his purposes, did not turn back, as he might have done, but continued on his wariking article on Dahlgren's raid. They got the information for the article largely from Captain Dement, of our forces; who had been captured by Dahlgren in Goochland County, and forced by him to accompany him throughout his raid and act as his guide. It was to Captain Dement that the straggling members of Dahlgren's command sur
