f the book. On the whole, we commend it as greatly superior to many similar publications. We are indebted to the courteous author for our copy. The Publishers — Charles Scribner's Sons, New York — have sent us the following additional volumes of their Campaigns of the civil war: III. The Peninsula, by General Alexander S. Webb; IV. The Army under Pope, by John C. Ropes, Esq.; V. The Antietam and Fredericksburg, by General Francis Winthrop Palfrey; VI. Chancellorsville and Gettysburg, by General Abner Doubleday. Each 1 volume, 12mo, with Maps. Price, $1. We propose to give these volumes a careful study and a candid review, in which task we have been promised the aid of one of our ablest military critics. Meantime we may say that we have dipped into them sufficiently to see that they are of very unequal merit — the volumes by Mr. John C. Ropes and General Palfrey striking us as being greatly superior to the other two in the careful study they have given the campai<

appeared from the field. Previous to this time I had advanced two of my batteries to the intervening hollow, and followed close upon the enemy as he left the hills. No further movement was made during the day — the casualties being one man killed of Captain Johnson's, and one wounded of Captain Rice's by premature explosion, and several horses disabled. On Thursday morning, July 2d, the battallion was put in position behind a stone wall on the range of hills to the left of the town of Gettysburg, Captain Rice's battery in reserve. The enemy opened upon the spot at various times throughout the two succeeding days a terrible artillery fire accompanied with a galling fire of musketry from their sharpshooters. Our line remained quiet until a movement forward being made by the first corps a few rounds was fired by us to draw the enemy's attention which never failed to do so. The firing in the afternoon became extremely warm and continued, and resulted in considerable loss, Lieutenant

1st of July, when I was relieved and became directly subject to your orders. The commencement of the battles around Gettysburg found my battalion at Cashtown, Pa., where it had arrived the previous evening from near Fayetteville, Pa. About 11 o'che 26th crossed the Potomac. We camped a mile beyond Chambersburg on the 28th. On July 1st we camped a few miles from Gettysburg, and on the 2d of July moved up with the division. When we commenced to ascend the road leading to the crest of the hito the right and placed the battalion in position on the edge of the wood, the right resting near the road leading from Gettysburg to Emmettsburg.

Campaigns of the civil war — Chancellorsville — Gettysburg. A review of General Doubleday by Colonel Wm. Allan. No than General Doubleday's account of Chancellorsville and Gettysburg. These were two of the greatest battles of the war, andl officer who was a prominent participant, especially at Gettysburg, in the great campaign of 1863. It is well illustrated most notable instances, his enumeration of the forces at Gettysburg, on page 123. He says: The two armies * * * were i000 men and 300 guns with which Meade encountered him at Gettysburg. General Doubleday has evidently counted Stuart's cavalresent for duty in the Federal infantry and artillery at Gettysburg, and adding the 12,000 cavalry, we have Meade's present (Robertson's, Jones's and Imboden's) were not present at Gettysburg, having been engaged (like French's Federal division at ., in the rear.

The Fifteenth Georgia regiment at Gettysburg. Report of Colonel D. M. Du Bose. Headquarters Fifteenth regiment Georgia Volunteers, July 27th, 1863. Lieutenant Perry, A. A. A. General: Sir,--In obedience to orders No.--, received to-day, I herewith submit to Brigadier-General H. L. Benning a report of the part taken by my regiment (the Fifteenth Georgia) in the battle of Gettysburg on the 2d and 3d of July, 1863. My regiment occupied that portion of the ground on the extreme left of the brigade. On the 2d of July, after moving for a considerable distance across an open field under a heavy shelling from the enemy's batteries, I reached my position from which I was to move in line of battle to assist in supporting Brigadier-General Laws's brigade, which I learned had moved forward to attack the enemy. After marching forward four or five hundred yards, I, with the rest of the brigade, was halted and rested until an order came to me from General Benning to move forward at o

old and young, which are unrivalled in their line, and which seem to be appreciated by a constantly increasing circle of readers. General Fitzhugh Lee is diligently at work on a History of the army of Northern Virginia, A gallant and able soldier, who was an active participant in well nigh every battle that army ever fought, General Lee wields a facile pen, and could not fail to give us a book of deep interest. But those who have read his exceedingly able and pains-taking papers on Gettysburg and Chancellorsville will expect from General Lee a book of real historic value. And they will not be disappointed. We have received General Jacob D. Cox's account of Second Bull Run, as connected with the Fitz John Porter case, and propose to give it a careful study and a candid review; but we shall be greatly mistaken if this defence of the court martial that convicted Porter does not confirm us in our opinion that they were guilty of a great outrage on an able and gallant soldier

d loved with such devoted fervor. The subject of our sketch became a civil engineer, and after he came to the United States was employed in several parts of the country laying out some of the railroads that bind our widely extended States together with their iron bands. As soon as war was declared, and the Confederate government took its seat at Montgomery, he and his two younger brothers offered their services, and all joined the Southern army. The youngest was subsequently killed at Gettysburg. James Mitchel served gallantly as the Adjutant of General Gordon's brigade of Georgia troops, and lost his right arm in one of the battles around Richmond. John Mitchel (our hero) received an appointment as Lieutenant from the Secretary of War at Montgomery, and was ordered to join the battalion of South Carolina Regular Artillery, stationed at Fort Moultrie. He took part in the famous attack on Fort Sumter, 12th and 13th April, 1861, and was assigned to the service of the hotshot-guns

Notes and Queries. did General L. A. Armistead fight on the Federal side at First Manassas? General Abner Doubleday, in his Chancellorsville and Gettysburg (page 195), says: Armistead was shot down by the side of the gun he had taken. It is said he had fought on our side in the first battle of Bull Run, but had been seduced by Southern affiliations to join in the rebellion, and now dying in the effort to extend the area of slavery over the free States, he saw with a clearer vision that he had been engaged in an unholy cause, and said to one of our officers, who leaned over him: Tell General Hancock I have wronged him, and have wronged my country. Now, we have only quoted this statement in order to pronounce it without the shadow of foundation, and to express our surprise that a soldier of General Doubleday's position should thus recklessly reflect on the honor of a brave foeman upon the flimsy it is said, and the camp rumor of one of our officers. But the man who could grave
