the vexed question of retiring from Cassville. He had forgotten that he had met me in the road; that he had invited me to ride with him to see General Johnston, or that I was at the conference. Said he Only learned I was at the conference from Johnston's narrative, etc. I answered his letter from New York, where I then was, from recollection, without reference to my diary. I have both his letter and my answer. General Hood and I had talked this matter over, at length, at the Alleghany Springs, Va., in the summer of 1872, differing, however, about not remaining at Cassville and the defensive strength of the lines. Eighth—Without endeavoring to recall to mind pictures of scenes through the mist of thirty years in the past, or revive recollections of words used in the long, long ago, I will refer to my diary, and what was written day by day therein. After we had formed line of battle east of Cassville, and manoeuvered with Hood with a view to attack the enemy, our troops be

Drewry's Bluff. A letter from General Beauregard to General Wise Regarding the battle, and the difference between General Beauregard and General Bragg as to the war policy at that crisis. Now printed, as written, from the original, now owned by the grandson of General Wise, Mr. Barton Haxall Wise, of Richmond, Virginia: Alleghany Springs, October 3, 1873. My dear General. Mr. Marrin has referred to me your letter of the 19th ulto. I give you, with pleasure, some of the dates you refer to. I arrived at Petersburg from Weldon (where I had been ordered to from Charleston to await orders) on or about the 14th May, ‘64. Finding that General Pickett was very ill from fever, I ordered Genl. Whiting, then at Wilmington, to come at once to Petersburg to assume command, while I moved to Drury's Bluff, where General Hoke temporarily commanded. General W. arrived at about noon on the 13th, & after about one hour's conference with him & leaving with him some written general
Death of an Army officer. --We sincerely regret to learn that Captain James B. S. Alexander, of the Confederate Army, died on Tuesday last, at Alleghany Springs. He was the eldest son of James Alexander, Esq., editor of the Charlottesville Jeffersonian. At the time Virginia seceded from the old Union, he was serving as a Lieutenant in the United States army, then stationed in Oregon but, on hearing the approach of hostilities between the two sections. He resigned his commission, and hastened home to offer his services to his native State.--Receiving an appointment as Captain in the Provisional Army of Virginia, he was ordered to Lanyel Hill, where, under his old commander, General Garnett, he performed much hard service. His exposure at the time of the retreat to Monterey brought on disease, which terminated in death. Captain Alexander was a brave and gallant young officer, and his loss will be deplored by the country whose cause he loved, while to his family and friends t

waited until they came up, when, at a glance, we discovered the beard on her face, and saw it was a man in disguise. They took him to Blacksburg, and he owned up that he was disguised so that he might pass the guard at that place, who have in custody some conscripts. He said he was bound to Giles county to see his brother. As he passed through town he pretended to open his bosom and suckle the baby. His name is Adams, from the lower part of Montgomery county, about five miles from Allegheny Springs, and is no doubt a deserter. He was taken in custody by the guard, and will be sent to Christiansburg. The Conscript law is not half executed in this section. I have been at the different Springs, where I saw men from all the States, who had left home to avoid the Conscript act; and unless the idea of Senator Wigfall is carried out, and all men from all the States made to show that they are not conscripts, thousands will evade the law. In Richmond there are more than two thousan

Another splendid package was knocked off for $50, and the owner found himself in possession of some 100 or more almanac for 1860, another package, $30, and when exhibited a roll of dried grape vines carefully put up in more; another package, $10, had tickets of admission to a balloon ascension; another, for $30, contained a dozen bottles Allegheny springs water, another, $5, coupon bonds of the corporation in blank, a barrel, marked C.

What a laugh followed, when it was opened and found to contain rags for the hospital, but on stirring them up sixty new cotton shirts were found. It was the buyer's turn to laugh then, but his other speculations of packages will leave him minus a fe
