ed. A letter from General Lee. The following is an extract from a letter from General Lee, complimenting the North Carolina troops for their late achievement at Reams's station: "Headquarters Army Northern Virginia, August 29, 1864. "His Excellency, Z. B. Vance, "Governor of North Carolina, Raleigh: "I have been frequently called upon to mention the services of North Carolina soldiers in this army; but their gallantry and conduct were never more deserving of admiration thanNorth Carolina soldiers in this army; but their gallantry and conduct were never more deserving of admiration than in the engagement at Reams's station on the 25th instant.

There are believed to be upwards of eight thousand men, of conscript age, belonging to the State Government of Virginia alone. Fully as many are attached to each of the State Governments of North Carolina, Georgia and Alabama. Here are thirty-two thousand men at once — a powerful army of themselves. If General Lee had them well disciplined at this moment, he would settle with Grant before another week had passed over our heads. If General Hood had them, Sherman would leave Atlanta much laster than he came to it. By some means or other these men should be come at. The Confederate Government cannot do it, but the State Government can, by the simplest process in the world. Let each State
