f the Federal position by circuitous mountain paths, which enabled them to penetrate the rear of the enemy. General Lee said: With great effort the troops intended for the surprise had reached their destination, having traversed 20 miles of steep, rugged mountain paths, and the last day through a terrible storm which lasted all night, and in which they had to stand drenched to the skin in the cold rain. When morning broke I could see the enemy's tents on Valley river at the point on the Huttonsville road just below me. It was a tempting sight. We waited for the attack (by Rust) on Cheat mountain, which was to be the signal, till 10 a. m. But the signal did not come. All chance for surprise was gone, the opportunity was lost and our plan discovered. During these operations Col. John H. Savage, of the Sixteenth Tennessee, with a guide, captured an entire company of Federal infantry with their arms and accouterments. The Savannah, Ga., Republican published an account of Colonel S

in this section heavy censure was cast upon me. If the authorities did not place it upon me, it seems they were willing that I should bear it. The more intelligent citizens, who knew the difficulties in my way, were not those to find fault. (See letter of Hon. Samuel Woods, then member of the Virginia Convention and now one of the judges of our court of appeals.) Under these circumstances I asked for a court of inquiry. I retreated to Beverly, and the next day withdrew the infantry to Huttonsville, south of Beverly, leaving the cavalry to scout the roads across Rich Mountain and Laurel Hill. This was my position when relieved by General Garnett. I had no objection to being relieved. I filled the position I had because I had been ordered to do so. I would at the first have preferred it had been given to some one else. The Confederate authorities had at last become aware of the real condition of affairs in northwestern Virginia, and now sent General Garnett, with about five tho

A., Greenbrier river, September 10, 1861. 1. Colonel E. Johnson will take command of the troops now at this point, and, after detailing a sufficient guard for the camp, will proceed with the remainder along the turnpike in the direction of Huttonsville, leaving the camp in sufficient time to reach the eastern summit of Cheat by break of day on Thursday, the 12th inst. In making this movement he will exercise extreme caution in approaching the enemy's pickets, so as to cause no alarm before hupplies. Yet they may, if a small force is left here, send enough force to rout us and then return to their strongholds. We have reliable information that at Beverley there is Colonel Ford's 32d Ohio regiment, numbering 700—no artillery. At Huttonsville, Colonel Jones' 25th Ohio regiment, 800 men—two pieces of artillery. At Crouch's, 2d Virginia regiment, Colonel Moss, six companies, 400 men—one piece of artillery. The other companies of the regiment are on an expedition having in view the <

four times thereafter. On that day, wrought to reckless frenzy, we might have been annihilated, but never defeated! Garnett's last order. Almost with the close of the fight, an order came from General Garnett for Scott to fall back to Huttonsville, twelve miles from Beverley, and he would join us there, concentrate, and give McClellan battle. We had nearly reached Huttonsville, when there came another order from Garnett for us to return to Beverley, where he would join us, and fight thHuttonsville, when there came another order from Garnett for us to return to Beverley, where he would join us, and fight there next day. Midnight of the 11th of July found us, after marching and countermarching all day, drawn up in the streets of Beverley, waiting Garnett, our last march made amid a thunder-storm and downpour of rain seldom witnessed. As we stood in rank, wet to the skin, there came a last order from Garnett to take the prisoners from the jail and fall rapidly back to Monterey, where he would join us by way of Hardy and the South Branch of the Potomac. This was done, Colonel Scott ordering your co

top of Cheat Mountain that day, and many of the men who were scantly dressed suffered fearfully from the cold. But we pushed on through the storm and reached Huttonsville, a distance of twenty miles from where we had camped the night before. By this time it was fully known among the soldiers that General William E. Jones, wittheir own undertaking. General Jones was known to be a dashing cavalry officer, and a splendid fighter, and everybody felt that sure he would do his part. At Huttonsville we were within eleven miles of Beverley, and we knew the Federals had a strong force at this place, and that the town was strongly fortified and supplied with artillery. We also knew that we were ahead of all news and that the enemy had no idea of an approach. The night at Huttonsville was a fearful one on men exposed as we were. It rained all night, and did not cease until late in the afternoon on the next day. Work ahead of them. As soon after daylight as possible General Imb

familiarized the reader with some of these names. He will remember that Garnett, driven southward by the Federals, who had crossed Rich Mountain, was unable to find any practicable road at Cheat Mountain by which to escape to the east, and was obliged to follow that impassable barrier by descending in a northerly direction as far as Carricksford. The road which McClellan had thus barred against him to the south is the most important in all that region. Reascending the valley by way of Huttonsville, it forks at a point called Great Pass; the branch which turns to the east crosses Cheat Mountain at the defile of Cheat Summit, descends into the valley of Cheat River, then rises upon the perpendicular ridge which, under the name of Great Greenbrier, connects the High Knob with the crest of the Alleghanies, and proceeds towards the source of Greenbrier River, near a tavern celebrated in that wild region by the name of Travellers' Repose. The road branches off once more at this point to

resumes the attack on the morning of the 27th. But Scammon does not appear, for he has not reached Lewisburg: Jones, emboldened, attacks him in his turn, and about noon Averell, fearing lest his small troop should be brought to a halt in one of the gorges of that mountainous country, resolves to take again the road to the north. He has lost nearly a hundred and fifty men; the Confederates, more than two hundred. The Unionists leave about a hundred wounded and a broken gun, and halt at Huttonsville, near Beverly, on the western side of the Alleghanies. Two months pass away before either of the two sides shakes off its inaction. At last, stimulated no doubt by the news that Meade is going to cross the Rappahannock, Averell leaves Beverly on the 1st of November with a column composed of all three arms. As in the month of August, he will have to proceed to Lewisburg to concentrate the troops established in the Kanawha Valley, which will be brought to him by Colonel Duffie. Scar

the two sections on an equality to this aspect by a display of magnanimity in the vote just given, the East has, by a large majority, consented to relinquish this exemption, and is ready to share with you all the burdens of Government and to meet all Virginia's liabilities. They come now to aid you, as you came in former days to aid them. The men of the Southern Confederate States glory in coming to your rescue. Let one heart, one mind, one energy, one power, nerve every patriot arm in a common cause. The heart that will not beat in unison with Virginia now, is a traitor's heart; the arm that will not strike home in her cause now, is palsied by a coward fear. The troops are posted at Huttonsville.--Come with your own good weapons and meet them as brothers. Given under my hand, and under the seal of the Commonwealth, this 14th day of June, 1861, and in the 85th year of the Commonwealth. John Letcher. By the Governor: George W. Munpord. Secretary of the Commonwealth.
