the Times-dispatch, May 4, 1906. An incident in Chancellorsville campaign and what grew out of it. Operations of Cavalry—e story of General Averett's interview with a Confederate prisoner Retold. No battle, probably, in which the Federal and Confederate armies were engaged reflected more lustre on Southern generalship and the valor of the Southern soldier than the bloody struggle of Chancellorsville. The events which took place on that historic field and at Salem Church, May 13, 1863, were of a nature so important and brilliant as to eclipse and obscure the co-operating movements and detached services performed at the time in connection with the two contending armies The operations of the cavalry having covered a wide extent of territory and issued in numerous skirmishes without any regular battle, have claimed but slight attention in comparison with the desperate fighting and signal successes on the chief scenes of action. And yet, according to the well laid plan

ment could not act was delivered at the Foreign Office on the 19th of July; but in the morning of that day the Alabama, under the pretext of a pleasure excursion, escaped from Liverpool. To the statement of Mr. Adams, that large supplies have been sent from England by private speculators, for the use of the Confederacy Lord Russell replies that both parties to the civil war have to the extent of their wants and means, induced British subjects to violate the Queen's proclamation of the 13th of May, 1863, which forbids her subjects from affording such supplies to other party and thinks that the English Government are entitled to complain of both parties for having thus induced her Majesty's subjects to violate that proclamation, and their complaint applies most to the Government of the United States because it is by that Government that by far the greatest amount of such supplies have been ordered and secured. He says that it is notorious that large bounties have been offered and given
Fredericksburg, May 13, 1863. To the Editors of the Enquirer: Gentlemen --I desire briefly to respond to a communication from Gen. Early, which appeared in the columns of your paper of yesterday. His insinuation with reference to correspondents "in the interest of particular commands," if intended for this brigade, is gratuitous and unfounded. To my knowledge no publication has been made by any one connected, directly or indirectly, with it; and I was not aware that his conduct in the late engagements around Fredericksburg had been made the subject of newspaper consure until I saw it announced over his own signature. When Gen. McLaws moved up the river, on the night of the30th of April my brigade was detached from his command, and I was ordered to report to Gen. Early, who was charged with the duty of watching the movements of that portion of the Federal army which had been left in the vicinity of Hamilton's Crossing and opposite this place, on the other side o
Congratulatory order. The following is the congratulatory order of Gen. Bragg to the army of Tennessee on the triumphs achieved by the army of the Potomac in the recent battles of Fredericksburg and Chancellorsville: Headq'rs army of Tenn., Tullahoma, Tenn., May 13, 1863. General Orders, No. 109. The Commanding General announces to the army another great victory on the banks of the Rappahannock. Another vast army from the North, under a selected General, attacked the army of Virginia, and, baffled and beaten, has again sought shelter under the protection of its guns beyond the river. The battle of the Rappahannock is blazoned on banners bright with many triumphs and obscured by no defeat. Soldiers of the army of Tennessee, let us emulate the deeds of the army of Virginia! We cannot surpass them! Let us make them proud to call us brothers! Let us make the Cumberland and Ohio classic as the Rappahannock and the Potomac. (signed,)Braxton Brag

When he arrived at Winchester, he was told that he was to be sent through the Federal lines, and he demanded of the Provost Marshal at that point some written explanation of the cause of the treatment visited upon him, and something to protect him against further arrest after their guards had disposed of him. He was furnished with the following paper: Office Provost Marshal, Winchester, Va., May 13, 1863. Prisoner — has this day been sent South through our lines as an enemy to the Government of the United States, not to return during the war, under penalty of being treated as a spy. Pickets or scouts will not interfere with him on his journey. F. K. Shawhan, Captain and Provost Marshal. After this he was placed in an ambulance and sent out as far as Kernstown, where he was put out in the road to shift for himself and run the risk of arrest from our own scouts. At
