62. lady Washington's Lamentation. December, 1799. Copied from an original, January 9th, 1808, and presented by a lady of Richmond, Va., to Miss Susan McCain, (Mrs. S. M. Bell,) of Lunenburg County, Virginia. When Columbia's brave sons called my hero to lead 'em, To vanquish their foes and establish their freedom, I rejoiced at his honor — my fears I dissembled; At the thought of his danger, my heart, how it trembled: O my Washington! O my Washington! O my Washington! All was hazardous. The contest decided with peace to the nation; My hero retired 'mid the loud acclamation Of men without number, and praise without measure; My own heart exulted in transports of pleasure. O my happiness! O my happiness! O my happiness! How precarious! Our Freedom, with order, by Faction rejected, A new Constitution our country erected; My hero was raised to preside over the Union, And his cares intercepted our blissful communion: O my happiness! O my happiness! O my happiness! How precari

May 10th, 11th, and 12th—Taliaferro Succeeds to command after the fall of Garnett—Incidents of the report by Dr. Henry M. Price, Company K, 44th Virginia Volunteers, with corrections and additional particulars by C. T. Allen, formerly of Lunenburg county, Va. by Dr. Henry M. Price. At the request of many old comrades, and through your courtesy, I will try to give your readers a true history of the occurrences of the 10th, 11th, and 12th of May, 1861, culminating in the tragic death of Gener that Colonel Scott failed that day to realize what his duty was. He literally obeyed orders, when he should have realized and known by the intuition of a soldier, that his duty was to throw his orders to the winds and strike the enemy in his front and their rear and die, if need be, in saving the day. In another communication at some convenient season, with the permission of the Dispatch, I will say more of Rich mountain and its consequences. C. T. Allen, Formerly of Lunenburg county, Va.

having been buried where he fell. Jesse Barker had seen more than a score of his comrades killed and wounded carrying the flag of his regiment. He saw Boston killed at Williamsburg, Va. He saw the entire color guard, consisting of a sergeant and eight corporals killed and wounded at Gaines' Mill, Va. He witnessed the same fatality among his comrades four days afterwards at Frayser's Farm, Va., when the entire color guard was again shot down. He saw the head of Garland Sydnor, of Lunenburg county, Va., one of the noblest soldiers in the army, crushed to a pulp with a cannon shot, bearing aloft this same emblem of liberty and love. With these facts before him, knowing, as he did, that to be the standard bearer of the regiment made his killing or wounding inevitable, yet when a volunteer ensign was called for, Jesse Barker offered his services. The test came at Sharpsburg, Md. It became necessary to change the position of the regiment, then in action. Major George C. Cabell, o
