ed to the James River and Kanawha Canal, which they were expected to strike at or near Columbia, In Fluvanna. Thence, crossing the James river, their course was laid out through Cumberland county to Farmville, or the High Bridge over the Appomattox, near that place. The destruction of this bridge was one of the pet objects of the expedition. After the accomplishment of this feat the expedition was to work itself out of difficulty by passing round between Petersburg and the North Carolina line, so as to strike be Yankee lines in the neighborhood of Suffolk. Impossible of accomplishment as this feat would seem to be the distance to travel and the risks to run are no greater than those incurred by the dating Morgan in some of his raids in Kentucky and Tennessee. But the Yankees not only lacked a Morgan to execute this bold scheme, but met with such men as Stuart and Lee, whose vigilance is a sure guarantee that no Yankee laid into our lines can ever be successfully undertaken.
