his comes from the fact that many soldiers never in Johnston's army were paroled in different parts of the State. Before he received his concentration orders, General Hoke, at Wilmington, had been engaged in some minor actions. Moore says: General Hoke had posted Lieut. Alfred M. Darden with 70 of the survivors of the Third North Carolina battalion, on the summit of Sugar Loaf. This battery and the guns at Fort Anderson, just across the river, kept the enemy's gunboats at bay. Brig. Gen. W. W. Kirkland, of Orange, with his brigade, held the intrenched camp. He had highly distinguished himself as colonel of the Twenty-first North Carolina volunteers. At the foot of the hill were posted the Junior and Senior reserves, under Col. J. K. Connally. Across the Telegraph road, upon their left, was Battery A, Third North Carolina battalion, Capt. A. J. Ellis.

Companies C, F and K were those from the Forty-ninth on the picket, and sustained a loss of three killed and seventeen wounded. On June 4th we crossed the James at Drewry's Bluff, and confronted the enemy on the Chickahominy, at the York River Railroad bridge, and strengthened the fortifications there. On the 10th we were relieved by Kirkland's North Carolina Brigade, and returned by a forced march to the south side, and thence to Petersburg, to meet Grant's advance across the James. From this time on Ransom's Brigade became a part of Bushrod Johnson's Division. After marching all night of the 15th we reached Petersburg about 8 o'clock on the morning of the 16th, and were hurried to our fortifications on Avery's farm. At a run we succeeded in getting to the works before the enemy reached them. Through a storm of shot and she

N. C. Volunteers. --The Eleventh Regiment of North Carolina Volunteers, (now in Virginia,) have elected W. W. Kirkland, Colonel; J. M. Leach, Lieutenant Colonel, and Gee. P. Harrison, Major--all North Carolinians. The Regiment, like all that have preceded it from the old North State, have nothing to desire in the quality or quantity of its men or arms.
from Jackson's army we have some particulars of the fight at Winchester on Sunday, May 25th. Our informant was attached to the 21st North Carolina regiment, Col. W. W. Kirkland, which was in the hottest of the fight. The 21st was on the right wing of the army, and being engaged all the time suffered severely, losing 100 men out of Martinsburg, a distance of 22 miles, where we encamped for the night. In the charge made in the early part of the engagement we lost many valuable officers. Col. Kirkland, while gallantly leading his regiment, musket in hand, firing as rapidly as possible, received a painful wound through the right thigh. Lieut. Col. Repper wast he took his own sick and wounded from the ambulances and loaded them with negro families. Thus his wounded fell into our hands, together with ten Yankee Surgeons. The latter were released unconditionally. On this occasion the gallant conduct of Col. Kirkland was very conspicuous, and won the praise of the General in command.
