n in two detachments, Capt. Philip J. Thurmond leading one. In the desperate fight in the streets which followed, Thurmond was mortally wounded at the head of his command. With continued audacity Witcher turned his attention to the Big Sandy river early in November, on the 5th captured and burned the United States armed steamers Barnum and Fawn at Buffalo shoals, and on the same day captured and destroyed the military stores at Mellonsburg and drove the enemy's cavalry under his guns at Louisa. At Logan Court House, a few days later, this indomitable officer reported that he had collected six companies of recruits, and had four or five other companies forming. He had increased his own battalion to a regiment, and had collected one for Col. Thomas B. Swann. One of the most notable affairs in other portions of the State in this period was the greenback raid under Mosby. Hearing that a train had left Washington with 42 paymasters on board carrying funds for Sheridan's army, he
orning of the 9th, Lee rode along the line that had been occupied, but was not favorably impressed with it. At Ewell's suggestion, a somewhat elevated point, projecting between some of the southward branches of the Ny, near the right center, was taken into the lines and occupied by artillery; orders were also given for providing a second line of defenses, beyond the incurved line, as taken, on the right. Lee's position, as now occupied, extended from the Po river on the southwest, where the Louisa road to Spottsylvania Court House and Fredericksburg crosses the big bend of that river, in the arc of a circle, eastward, across the Brock road and the Po-Ny watershed, to a branch of the Ny river; while from its right center sprang a horseshoe salient, northward, eastward and southward, around the crest of the spur between two small branches of the Ny and overlooking that river to the northeastward. Ewell's men were disposed within this salient, which conformed, in a general way, to a bro

his residence has been at Columbia. He represented Union county in the legislature of 1877-79, and resigned that office to accept the appointment of reporter of the Supreme court, which he held until the fall of 1895.

Richmond Enquirer, April 24, 1861. About 3 o'clock, Friday morning, 19th April, the Staunton Artillery, West Augusta Guards, Albemarle Rifles, Monticello Guards, Southern Guards, the Sons of Liberty from the University, Scott's and Parran's companies from Gordonsville and Barboursville, a company from Louisa, the Orange Montpelier Guards, two Culpeper rifle companies, the Winchester Continentals, the Winchester Rifles, a Charlestown company and portions of the Fauquier cavalry reached Harper's Ferry and found the arsenal and buildings in flames. But Lieutenant Jones had not succeeded in destroying everything which he could not defend, and the flames were soon extinguished.

page 240. In 1724, in the replies to the Bishop of London made by the rectors of the several parishes as to the number of endowed schools in Virginia, it appears that there were as many as four schools in many parishes, in some of which Latin and Greek were taught. Perry's Church Papers of Virginia, pages 261-318. McCabe, among the sources of education in the Colony, cites the Parsons' Schools; that of Rev. Devereux Jarratt, in Fluvanna county; the classical school of Rev. John Todd, in Louisa, in 1750; Augusta Academy, in Rockbridge, in 1774—the germ of the present Washington and Lee University; Prince Edward Academy, in 1776—now Hampden—Sidney College; Washington—Henry Academy, in Hanover, founded a few years later by John D. Blair—the Parson Blair, of Richmond, of revered memory; the schools of Rev.

General David Bullock Harris, C. S. A. A brief Sketch of his life and services. Brigadier-General David Bullock Harris, a descendant of an early settler and planter of Henrico, one of the eight original shires of the Colony of Virginia, was born at Frederick's Hall, Louisa county, Virginia, September 28, 1814. His father, Captain Frederick Harris, served in the war of 1812; was one of the founders of the old Louisa railroad and its first and continuous president until his death. This road became, subsequently, the Virginia Central railroad, and is now known in its extension as the Chesapeake and Ohio Railway. David B. Harris, after having enjoyed the advantages of the classical schools of his native county, entered West Point Military Academy July 1, 1829, and was graduated thence July I, 1833, the seventh in his class of forty-three cadets, which included Generals John G.

miles beyond Beverley, General Garnett faced McClellan's 15,000 with 2,000 men, composed of Colonel William C. Taliaferro's brigade, the Thirty-first Virginia (West Virginia), under Colonel Jackson, and the First Georgia, under Colonel Ramsey. Thus Garnett was attempting to hold four detached positions against McClellan's united force of over three to one. On the night of the 10th your correspondent was thrown out at the extreme picket on Rich mountain, with orders from Captain Shelton, of Louisa, officer of the day, to scout out if anything unusual occurred, and find out its nature and report to him on rounds to the posts. About midnight a movement of the enemy was discovered opening and cutting a way 'round Pegram's position in the direction of the entrenched position held by the College Boys. This was duly reported and a courier sent to General Garnett. At daylight of July 11h an order came to Scott to immediately join Garnett at Laurel Hill. When within three miles of that po
