Another alumnus, Colonel William Bingham, class of 1856, remained at the head of his private school for boys during the whole of the war period. The school was continued at Oaks, in Orange county, and ten miles from a railroad, until the winter of 1864-65, when it was removed to Mebane, N. C.

Hundreds of persons, old and young, had congregated at the depot to welcome them, and as the train approached containing these uniformed soldiers who had armed and equipped themselves for their loved South, one long, glad shout rent the air to the tune of three times three. Such manifestations cannot fail to buoy the hearts and nerve the arms of these gallant patriots. After remaining at the
Correspondence of the Richmond Dispatch.from Raleigh, N. C. Raleigh, N. C., June 21. Since seeing you, a month or two ago, I have been spending a large portion of my time in the "City of Oaks," and an interesting time we have had of it.
