The loss of the Fifth regiment at the battle of Cedar Mountain was three killed and seventeen wounded, of this loss Company D sustained one-third, as three of our comrades were killed and four wounded. The following abstract of General Order from headquarters, giving history of campaign of 1862, may be of general interest to all soldiers of the Stonewall Brigade: During the year 1862, the Stonewall Brigade lost 1220 men in killed and wounded, no record of those that died of disease; Fifth regiment lost 400, almost one-third of entire loss. We marched 1500 miles, encountering the snow and ice of the mountains of Hampshire and Morgan counties; the miasma of summers in the swamps of Henrico and Hanover. The brigade at the beginning of 1863 numbering but 1200 muskets. T. M. Smiley, Orderly Sergeant, Co. D, fifth Va. Infantry, Stonewall Brigade.

The eight companies present were from Shenandoah, Page, Hampshire and Hardy (five were from Shenandoah, and one each from Page, Hardy and Hampshire); both the latter companies were small, about fifty men, so that deducting the sick and absent, there were only about 400 men in the action.

I was then the only regular field officer in the regiment; but there was a Captain Lee, a splendid man and gallant officer, who had been temporarily assigned to the regiment and acted as field lieutenant-colonel; he was, in the charge, struck in the breast with a piece of shell and fell at his post mortally wounded, and died soon afterwards. The charge of the Thirty-Third was Violation of orders. After giving this brief account of our movements and the position of the brigade previous to our going into actio

e Nantucket feels the arms of ocean close her round; From rich and rural Worcester, where through the calm repose Of cultured vales and fringing woods the gentle Nashua flows, To where Wachuset's wintry blasts the mountain larches stir, Swelled up to Heaven the thrilling cry of ‘ God save Latimer! ’ And sandy Barnstable rose up, wet with the salt sea spray; And Bristol sent her answering shout down Narragansett Bay! Along the broad Connecticutold Hampden felt the thrill, And the cheer of Hampshire's woodmen swept down from Holyoke Hill. The voice of Massachusetts! Of her free sons and daughters, Deep calling unto deep aloud, the sound of many waters! Against the burden of that voice what tyrant power shall stand? No fetters in the Bay State! No slave upon her land! Look to it well, Virginians! In calmness we have borne, In answer to our faith and trust, your insult and your scorn; You've spurned our kindest counsels; you've hunted for our lives; And shaken round our hearths an

y monument in the Precinct burying-ground: The Rev. Mr. Samuel Cooke, Pastor of this Church, in whom were united the social friend, the man of science, the eminent and faithful clergyman whose praise was in all the churches, died 4th June, 1783, in the 44th year of his ministry, et. 75. His will, with two codicils, and other papers relating to the settlement of his estate, are on file at the probate office in East Cambridge. He mentions property in Hadley and neighboring towns in Hampshire Co., and in Newton and Cambridge. In this year a committee was chosen to complete wall about burying place, and also empowered to procure gates and hang the same, so that said burying-place may be sufficiently enclosed. Twenty-four shillings were granted the present Precinct clerk for his last year's services in that office. Also, in 1783, voted to make repairs to the meeting-house by building a belfry at the northeast end of the same, for the bell to stand upon; and also a porch

The tyranny of Argall was, therefore, left unrestrained; but his indiscriminate rapacity and vices were destined to defeat themselves, and procure for the colony an inestimable benefit; for they led him to defraud the company, as well as to oppress the colonists. The condition of Virginia became intolerable; the labor of 1618 the settlers was perverted to the benefit of the governor; servitude, for
