Though now an old man, he has all the fire of former days, and is ready to battle again in the service of his fellow-citizens and countrymen. His little boy, nine years old, was with his spade at the battery, as were many chaps of his age — the promising chips of our people, and to be the future gallant defenders of Virginia. H. W. Portsmouth, Va., April 27th. The Hospital grounds were crowded yesterday evening by citizens of the two cities and ladies, to witness the parade and the skirmish drill executed by the Columbus City Guard, commanded by Capt.
