hat great battle, and therefore was not as explicit as he would have been had he anticipated the use to be made of that statement. We all know how liable all of us are to make mistakes and oversights in speaking casually of past events. This is peculiarly the case with many in recalling the events of the late war. In response to an enquiry from myself, I have received the following note from the gallant soldier who commanded the Stonewall brigade, in Johnson's division, at Gettysburg: Newbern, Va., October 13, 1877. dear General: I do not recollect where Johnson's division camped the night of 30th June, but it must have been some twelve or fifteen miles from Gettysburg. We arrived on the ground where Rodes and Gordon had fought late in the evening, after all the troops had gone. We moved to the left very late in the evening, and did not get into position until after dark. I recollect very distinctly that it was dark before we got to the position where we bivouacked for the nig
ged in locating the line of the Covington & Ohio (now Chesapeake & Ohio) railroad, from the Big Sandy river to Charlestown, and in this rough and unexciting life he spent eighteen months. He then resigned and returned to his home in Augusta county. Shortly afterward he began to read law in the office of Col. John B. Baldwin, at Staunton. During the session of 1854-55 he took a law course at the university of Virginia, and immediately afterward began to practice his profession at Newbern, Pulaski county, Va. In 1860 he was elected commonwealth's attorney of that county and filled that position until the spring of 1863. Immediately after the John Brown raid, Walker organized a local militia company, the Pulaski Guards, and being elected their captain, drilled them so faithfully that when Governor Letcher called for troops from Virginia, his was one of the best companies mustered into the service. In April, 1861, Captain Walker and his company were ordered to report for duty at Harpe

hands drowned, except one negro, who remained on top of some hay. Twelve mules were drowned and twenty-five men, including teamsters and sick and wounded soldiers. There was a boat, but too frail for transporting artillery. In an ambulance was General Early-ill with pneumonia. Before crossing over in the boat he desired to see General Echols, to whom he remarked that it looked like getting Southern rights in the territories! Moved the artillery up the river and camped near Newbern, Pulaski county, Virginia. April 10th, 1865.—Crossed New river at Cecil's Ford, and marched by horrible road all night to the turnpike near Christiansburg, Montgomery county, Virginia. April 11th, 1865.—Joined General Echols near Christiansburg at 4 A. M. Captain Semple, being dismounted, asked me to bend down from my horse as he had something to tell me. Lee, with his whole army, has surrendered, whispered he into my ear. Did not believe it-thought there must be some mistake. Moved on to Christi
ing Schenck and Benham, by reaching Fayette Court-House before they formed their junction there, he saw very little of them at all. In fact, it was impossible for them to follow him in any force; and his subsequent movements, after leaving Fayette Court House, were exclusively with reference to winter quarters. He has established his winter camp near Peterstown, in Monroe county, about 40 miles from the White Sulphur Springs, and about 30 from the Virginia and Tennessee Railroad at Newbern, Pulaski county His camp thus affords protection at once to both of those points, and is located in a country fruitful in supplies. It is not deemed possible for the enemy to pass the mountains to either Newbern or the White Sulphur, such is the horrible condition of the roads. It would seem that the enemy are themselves fully convinced of this fact, as I see that seven or eight of their regiments are announced as ordered to Kentucky; where I am quite sure they will find the roads in as bad a con

Gen. Floyd's army ordered to Bawling Green. The army of General Floyd, recently ordered to Newbern, Pulaski county, has now been ordered to Bowling Green, Kentucky. Those regiments of Southern troops which recently belonged to this command were lately ordered to Charleston, and are now enrowe thitner. The Western Virginia regiments, which constitute the command of General Floyd proper, are now ordered to Bowling Green, with the exception of a single one, which is to go to Lewisburg. The removal of this army to the far west leaves a very large portion of Virginia exposed to the enemy. The effect upon the temper of the people in the exposed counties will be extremely untoward.
