Jones, Secretary Southern Historical Society: Dear Sir,--In a conversation with my friend, Colonel Marshall McDonald, formerly of the Virginia Military Institute, Lexington, now of the United States Fish Commission, as to the prospects and best means of regaining my sword, he referred me to you.

following letter from our friend, Major H. B. McClellan, explains itself and will, we hope, elicit the desired information: Rev. J. Wm. Jones, Secretary Southern Historical Society: My Dear Sir,--On the evening of the 2d May, 1862, after Jackson's first success at Chancellorsville, General J. E. B. Stuart obtained from General Jackson one regiment of infantry, with which he moved toward Ely's Ford to disperse a force of the enemy reported to be at that point, and to take possession of the Ford. Before accomplishing his purpose he was recalled to the army to take command of Jackson's corps. Can any of your readers give me the name of the infantry regiment which was employed in this service, and place me in communication with the officer who was then in command, or with any other who personally participated in the attack which was made after Stuart left the regiment to assume command of the corps? If so, I shall esteem it a great favor. Yours respectfully, H. B. Mcclel

Notes and Queries. What Confederate Battery fired the last gun at Appomattox? We publish with pleasure the following: Memphis, Tenn., September 27, 1881. Editor Southern Historical Papers, Richmond, Va.: Dear Sir,--The concluding article in your August number is a statement from Major W. W. Parker that Johnson's battery, from Richmond, Va., should properly be credited with firing the last shots from the Army of Northern Virginia on that memorable Sunday morning at Appomattox Courthouse, whereas I had always been under a different impression; and though it is a matter of no consequence now, still it is as well to have things stated as they actually occurred, if they are stated at all. And without meaning for a moment to intimate that Major P. would have it otherwise, I think the following statement will be corroborated by every man who was within hearing of General Gordon's voice when he gathered around him that Sunday afternoon the torn and battle-scarred remnant of th
