The lines were nearer together than elsewhere, and the sharpshooters never ceased firing, while the mortar shells rained down upon us incessantly day and night. Finally, at the headquarters of the brigade—a hole in our embankment—I was left the only staff officer, and the brigade was commanded by one of the junior captains of the Seventeenth regiment, Captain George B. Daniel, of Granville county, N. C., all the field officers being hors de combat. I sent for Major-General Hoke and told him the hazardous situation, and he sent to command us Colonel Zachary, of the Twenty-seventh Georgia, of Colquitt's Brigade, an amiable and very brave officer, with whom my relations were very pleasant. I was feeble from exposure, but did not leave the men for a single day. How I survived all this I do not know. In August General W. W. Kirkland, a North Carolinian, was permanently placed in comm<

s called the "Moccasins," and after being disarmed, were released on taking the oath not to bear arms against the South. This news we get from the Cincinnati papers. Extortionate Price for necessaries. The people of New Orleans deal with the speculators in a rather summary fashion.--One evening last week, a meeting was advertised to take place at the Merchants' and Auctioneers' Exchange, in order to consider measures for abating the extortionate prices for necessaries now prevailing. The meeting was postponed before the hour designated, in consequence of steps having been taken to effect the object contemplated, without resorting to the deliberations of a public assembly.

Death of an old citizen. --We are pained to learn that Otis Manson, Esq., formerly for forty years a well known resident of Richmond, died on the 9th of April last, at the residence of his son, Dr. O. F. Manson, in Granville county, N. C., at the ripe age of seventy- two years. His remains were brought to this place for interment. Several years since Capt. Manson removed to North Carolina, where his last hours were spent. No man, perhaps, in his sphere, was more useful to the community in which he lived. In the war of 1812, he promptly volunteered in Capt. Richardson's corps d'clite for the defence of Richmond, and for a great many years was a useful member of the City Council. For many years he was the only architect in Virginia, and the principal edifices in the city and country were either wholly or partially planned by him. When living here, he was to the mechanic a guide and a friend, and was universally beloved by them. As a parent, he was noble, generous, and unselfis
