A remarkable victory. Wilson's defeat at the Staunton river bridge in 1864. [from the Richmond times, September 27, 1891.] A battle which saved Lee's Army—Two hundred and fifty hastily organized Confederates whip Twenty—five hundred Federals—Valuable contributions. Wilson's defeat at the Staunton-river bridge, June 24, 1864, was the most remarkable result of the fervent patriotism which pervaded all classes and ages and sexes of Virginians during our long and severe trials that the history of that war gives us. This most interesting narrative of it was given me ten years or more ago by that able and excellent Virginia gentleman, Colonel Tom Flournoy, then residing in Danville. Several times he told me he would write it for record in the Southern Historical Society. Unfortunately for history, he, in the struggle for maintenance which had then fallen upon us all, died before he could execute his purpose. Wilson's advance. His story was that about the 21st or 22d of<

cy entered largely into his success. Jackson was noted for the quickness with which he formed his decisions, and his crisp, epigramatic orders on the field of battle. Thirty years ago, on the 21st of July, which has been fitly chosen for the unveiling of his monument, Jackson won his first real laurels in the War between the States, and from the plains of Manasas there sounded forth the first trumpet notes that were to fill the world with his fame. He had led his brigade of heroic Virginians to the plateau near the Henry House, and formed his line of battle to stem the blue torrent that had been sweeping before it the little band of Confederates in its path, when General Bee, the heroic son of the Palmetto State, who had been bearing the brunt of the battle, galloped up to him and exclaimed: General, they are beating us back! Jackson, calm and collected, but his eyes glistening beneath the rim of his old cadet cap, replied: Sir, we will not be beaten back. We will give them

[special correspondence of the Dispatch.] Yorktown, June 11, 1861. An engagement, lasting four hours, took place yesterday (Monday) between five regiments of the troops from Old Point and eleven hundred Confederate troops, consisting of Virginians and North Carolinians under General Magruder, at Bethel Church, York county. Before telling you of the battle I will give you some circumstances preceding it. About two weeks ago a party of three hundred Yankees came up from Hampton and occupilly submitted, John W. Ellis. General Hill's Dispatch. Yorktown, Va., June 11, 1861. Hon. J. W. Ellis, Governor of North Carolina: Sir: I have the honor to report that eight hundred men of my regiment and three hundred and sixty Virginians were engaged for five and a half hours with four and a half regiments of the enemy at Bethel Church, nine miles from Hampton. The enemy made three distinct and well sustained charges, but were repulsed with heavy loss. Our cavalry pursued the

aid Dr. Pendleton, who was in the city several days last week, he declared that the statement of his men deserting was without foundation of fact. General Breckinridge then asked the delegation what advice they had to offer. Mr. Bocock's advice. Mr. Bocock, who acted as spokesman, asked General Breckinridge what proportion of the Army of Northern Virginia did the Virginia troops constitute? To this General Breckinridge replied that the greater portion of General Lee's army were Virginians. Mr. Bocock then asked to what point did the Confederate Government propose to remove and make a stand, and General Breckinridge replied: To some point in Northern Georgia, as this seemed to be the most eligible rallying ground. Speaker Bocock then proceeded to give his reasons in opposition to the proposed evacuation of Virginia, and, among other facts, cited the statement of the Secretary concerning the action of the trans-Mississippi troops and the desertion of the Georgians as th

To the Editor of the Dispatch: Will you inform some friends of your paper who were the professors at the Virginia Military Institute in the years 1848, 1849 and 1850; also when Stonewall Jackson first entered the Institute as a professor, and what branches he taught? We have a lot of rusty Virginians out here who have lost their reckoning, several who were of the class of 1861, and left with Colonel Allan to join the Confederate army. A Subscriber from Idaho. At the July meeting of the Board of Visitors in 1851 Thomas J. Jackson was added to the Academic Board as professor of natural and experimental philosophy and instructor of artillery, with the rank of major. The other information asked for is as follows: 1848.—Board of Visitors: General Corbin Braxton, president of boar

e next day Patterson crossed the Potomac. The skill with which, one month later, he eluded Patterson's army of more than thirty thousand, and hurled his own from the mountains upon McDowell, was the master-stroke of Manassas—Johnston's rear column, under Kirby Smith, coming upon the field, just as Barnard Bee was falling, and Jackson's Stonewall the last Gibraltar. Just when the South Carolina Brigade was hardest pressed, an aide or courier of Bee, meeting Johnston, asked, Where are your Virginians? In the thickest of the fight, was the Spartan answer. It was a victory won by an army which itself barely grazed defeat, and one, therefore, difficult to pursue. But in this cursory glance one thing cannot be omitted—the full credit which Johnston everywhere gives Beauregard. The bold design submitted by the military officers, in a council of war, at Manassas in September, 1861, to concentrate at that point the strength of the Confederacy, even at the cost of leaving bare of defense
