irst heavy charge that our columbus made upon the enemy, which, as an incident of the battle, should not go unrecorded. When the two columns came face to face, Col. Walker's regiment was immediately opposed to the 7th Iowa, and David Vollmer, of Capt. Stokes's company, belonging to Col. Walker's regiment, drawing the attention of Col. Walker's regiment, drawing the attention of a command to the stars and stripes that floated over the enemy, avowed his intention of capturing the colors or die in the attempt. The charge was made, the centre of Walker's regiment, Capt. Stokes's position facing the centre of the Iowa regiment. As the two columns came within a few yards of each other, young Vollmer and a youWalker's regiment, Capt. Stokes's position facing the centre of the Iowa regiment. As the two columns came within a few yards of each other, young Vollmer and a young man by the name of Lynch both made a rush for the colors, but Vollmer's bayonet first pierced the breast of the color-bearer, and grasping the flag he waved it over his head in triumph.

shall make a note of as soon as the full facts can be obtained. The idea of having the different brigades composed of regiments from the same State, seems to me a good one, and I believe is generally regarded with favor. The change does not necessarily apply to officers, although thus far, many of them have been changed with the regiments. Some objection has been made to the system, but only in such cases, I believe, where some favorite officer has been transferred, as in the cases of Gens. Walker and Ewell. The latter had become very popular with the Alabamans, three regiments of them being in his brigade, and they of course were unwilling to loose him. Gen. Ewell now has a brigade of Virginians, and is stationed near Centreville.

Picayune comes out in a to that paper concerning Gen. W., and states that Gen. Lovell was born within thirty miles of Manassas, at Washington. The latest advices from Texas report Gen. Houston as slowly recovering, and he is now considered out of danger. H. M. Breaker, of Brookville, Hernando county, Fl., was accidentally shot and killed a few days since by a comrade. Mr. Joel Check, of Griffin, Ga., was killed at place, a few days since, by falling into a well. Mr. Wm. Hackney, of Newman, Ga., was shot on the 12th inst., by a man named Terry. He died the next day.

Flag Officer Command'g South Atlantic Blockading Squadron, Hon. Gideon Wells, Secretary of the Navy, Washington, Flag Ship Wabash, off-hilton Head, Port Royal Harbor, Nov. 8, 1861. Sir: I have the honor to inform you that yesterday I attacked the enemy's batteries on Bay Point and Hilton Head--Forts Beauregard and Walker--and succeeded in silencing them after an engagement of four hours duration and driving away the squadron of Confederate steamers, under Commodore Tatnall. The reconnaissance of yesterday made us acquainted with the superiority of Fort Walker, and to that I directed my special effort, engaging it at a distance of first eight, and afterwards six hundred yards.
