Jenkins, Jno. Mc-Causland and R. L. T. Beale, Major-General W. H. F. Lee's Division part of the time. It was distinguished among kindred organizations for the personal merit of its members.

[Our valued friend, from days ante-bellum, is a highly esteemed citizen and successful practitioner of this city. Being a gentleman of means, he delights in benefactions to the needy and those in distress. Upon intimation to him of such wants, relief is immediately extended. His quiet charities, unknown to the public, have been to a multitude of grateful recipients. Company H (originally called Lee's Rangers) 9th Virginia Cavalry, in which he served gallantly, had as its first Captain, Wm. H. F. Lee, subsequently Major-General, and familiarly known as Rooney Lee. A brother of the editor, H. C. Brock, a member of the faculty of Hampden-Sidney College, who was severely wounded at Stony Creek, Dinwiddie County, in 1864, with many valued friends, served also in this noted Company.—Ed.] Commander, Comrades, Friends.— This raid has been written up so often, that I am reduced to a small margin from which to draw.

ral Averill's command consisted of the two brigades of his division, Davis's brigade of Pleasanton's division and Tiddall's battery, numbering in all about 4.000 men, while opposed to him on the line from Brandy to Rappahannock Station was General W. H. F. Lee with two regiments (Ninth and Thirteenth Virginia Cavalry) with one gun. General Lee with his small force fell back before Averell's advance, one squadron only being kept near the enemy to retard his progress, until the Rapidan was crosr. The elder of the two, M. U. F., was taken into the presence of General Averell, who questioned him closely as to the troops opposed to him, their number, etc. Wright replied to the inquiries that there was no cavalry in front of him except W. H. F. Lee's brigade, but that the trains had been hurrying down all the morning from Gordonsville crowded with infantry and artillery. Precisely what effect this answer had on the mind of General Averell, cannot be definitely stated. All the circumsta

ville and splendid service of the Second Rockbridge Battery. The account below of the retreat of Lampkin's Battery from near Fort Harrison, on the north side of the James, to Appomattox, is by Lieutenant Fletcher T. Massie, of that splendid company of artillery. It is interesting in its incidents, and particularly so in the account it gives of the gun and caisson captured on the morning of surrender with their commanding officer and their men. It is shown by the report of General W. H. F. Lee, which has come to light, that two guns were captured that morning by Beale's and Robins's Brigades ot his division. In the assault General Beale was wounded, and Wilson and Walker, of Rockbridge, were killed. One of the two guns was thrown over in a ditch, as other accounts have made known. The one gun and the caisson, which were brought into Lee's lines, were each drawn by six horses. It is possible, if not, indeed, probable, that this gun and caisson were counted by some onlook

am Robins. When the first tocsin of war sounded in 1861, William Todd Robins enlisted as a private soldier in the Lee Rangers—a cavalry company recruited by W. H. F. Lee, who was its first captain. The company was attached to the Ninth Regiment of the Virginia Cavalry, of which Captain Lee became the Colonel. In January, 1862pril, 1862, he became its adjutant, with the rank of first lieutenant. In October, 1862, he was made assistant adjutant-general and chief of staff of Brigadier-General W. H. F. Lee, with the rank of captain. In August, 1863, he was made the commander of the Forty-eighth Battalion of Virginia Cavalry, with the rank of lieutenant-r when it was in the rear. He was also in both of the charges. General Stuart, in his report, says: The regiment in front was the Ninth Virginia Cavalry (Colonel W. H. F. Lee), whose advance guard, entrusted to the command of the adjutant (Lieutenant Robins) did admirable service. Lieutenant Robins handled it in the most skilfu

ver since. Capt. Melville Vaiden, a gentleman of great worth and valor, and who possesses much military skill, has the privilege of commanding it. We muster 70 strong, and will probably have 100 enrolled in the course of a few weeks. Lieut. Wm. H. F. Lee, a graduate of West Point, and who served for several years in the United States Army, has been authorized by the Executive to enroll 200 mounted men, who will go immediately into service, after being commissioned. His rendezvous is West Point, and we hear of a great many young men who have joined him. Lieut. Lee is a son of Gen. Robert E. Lee, and is a very superior officer. The wheat, as far as we have observed, promises more than an average yield. But little of it was killed by the cold weather last winter, consequently there is a fine growth, and that exceedingly luxuriant. The farmers have finished planting corn, and the most of it is up and growing prettily. We have six candidates here for the suffrages of the
Correspondence of the Richmond Dispatch.from Camp Ashland. Camp Ashland, Va., July 19, 1861. But little of interest has transpired here recently. Major Wm. H. F. Lee, with his rangers, and likewise the Lunenburg Cavalry left here yesterday morning for the West. The ladies of Lanenburg presented the cavalry of that county with a superb silk banner a few days prior to their leaving here.--One side of it represented the coat-of-arms of Virginia, and upon the opposite side was inscribed in magnificent gold letters, "God protect the Right." This splendid corps, commanded by Capt. Wm. H. Hatchell, evinced much gratitude upon its presentation. The patriotic daughters of old Lunenburg, inspired by a degree of love and undying devotion for their country, merit a higher panegyric than we are capable of conferring upon them. We feel satisfied if the gallant sons should ever meet the enemy, that their colors will be seen floating triumphantly after the conflict. A variety o

antity of rifles and Minnie muskets, most of which they dropped again, as they obstructed their movements Capt.Sherman and his Washington Volunteers Company E,) had a good chance of wreaking their vengeance upon their foes and grasped at it with both hands. The Captain himself fired both his pistols five times, which we may safely believe as having killed ten men, he being a bad shot. They, too, lost one man and had four more wounded. Company B was unfortunate enough to have their Captain (Lee) and Lieutenant (Harrison) wounded, which fact added, if possible, to their courage — besides they lost one man and five slightly wounded. Company K, too, deplore the loss of one man and two wounded, and from their side made a perfect slaughter in the enemy. Apropos.--When the regiment left on the 17th, eight of Company K's men were on guard, and as orders were given from headquarters not to let anybody pass out of camp after the regiment left, it was to be expected that they had to sta
