o Gen. Toombs's brigade. Col. Hodges is a gallant and meritorious young man, universally popular, and is a fine drill officer. He served with distinction in Mexico, and was among the first to volunteer in the Georgia service. He was First Lieutenant of the Columbus Guards, Capt Ellis, of the 2d Georgia regiment, from which position he has lately been transferred. Lieut. Col. Tom Taylor of the 1st Kentucky, has been promoted to a Colonelcy, and continues in command of the regiment Major Johnston (son of Gen. A. S. Johnston) has been promoted to Lieutenant-Colonel, and Captain Jo. Desha. of company C, son of Gen. Lucius Desha, of Kentucky, has been appointed Major, Col. Taylor, of whom I have frequently spoken in my letters, has now one of the finest camps at this post, and his men are progressing wonderfully in drill. As much has been said about the carelessness of the Kentuckians in matters of military discipline, I am inclined to believe there are few more orderly or better
polls to vote for President and members of congress. This precinct has its box at the Medical Director's Office, formerly known as Carmon's Store. One hundred and fifty-two votes were cast for President and Vice President, and all for Davis and Stephens. The soldiers voted at their regiments, and the result has not yet been given. At this precinct the vote for member of Congress stood: Smith 93; Scott 26. From a gentleman who came from Fairfax this evening, I learn a box was opened there, and that Smith received a majority of the votes cost for Congressman. Of course the Presidential vote was a unanimous thing. There has been none of the usual excitement and electioneering, every one taking it for granted that Davis and Stephens were the unanimous choice of the people of the Confederate states. The only other box open in this vicinity was at the 49th Virginia, but I am unable to give the result of the vote. The good news brought in the Dispatch concerning the damage to the
she was there captured by our men. I understand that General Dick Taylor, the Brigadier recently appointed to General William Henry Walker's brigade, has arrived and taken command. There is no disguising the fact that the men are very much dissatisfied at the change. They are not half the fighting men they were two weeks ago I know nothing about the qualifications of Gen. Taylor for the position, and do not feel it liberty to take sides in the quarrel until acquainted with both. Captain Surzett, former aid to General Walker, has been appointed his Adjutant General. Captain Anderson, Adjutant to General Walker, has been ordered to Fernandina. On account of the inclemency of the weather, but few people came out to the polls to vote for President and members of congress.

Sydenham Moore (search for this): article 19
r, born in North Carolina, is a citizen of Tennessee, and was appointed to West Point from that State. He entered the army as brevet 2d Lieutenant in the 4th infantry, July 1st, 1846 He was brevetted 1st Lieutenant Sept. 13th, 1847, and received his commission in full August 24th, 1851. Having no personal acquaintance with General Wilcox I cannot speak of his qualifications as an officer, or of his characteristics He was the second Colonel in rank in the brigade, the third being Col. Sydenham Moore, of Alabama, a man well known in the South. I am told that Col. P. T. Moore, of the 1st Virginia regiment, has been placed in command, temporarily, of Gen. Longstreet's Brigade. This is a fitting recognition of the merit and gallant conduct of Col. Moore, who bravely won his spurs in the battle of Bull Run. The 17th Georgia regiment, Col. Henry L Benning, has elected Wesley Hodges, of Columbus, Georgia, Lieutenant-Colonel. The regiment is now attached to Gen. Toombs's brig

Col. Taylor is anxious to have his teachings put to some practical use in the field, and I hope he may have an opportunity before for themselves since their State was blazed out by Daniel Boone, we are accustomed to expect a great deal from them. Col. Taylor feels that great dependence is put upon his deadly r fles, and takes good care to keep his powder dry and his regiment

nsville and Vienna, and I am of the opinion that this force has been taken back, and that the trains at last night were top the purpose. As there are no indications of an advance, but, on the contrary, every sign of a retreat, that seems the most plausible solution of the activity observable last night. This morning the 2d company of the Washington Artillery returned from picket duty on the outposts, and the 1st company, Captain squires, was sent to take its place. The 3d company, Captain Miller, has returned from Leesburg. Several changes have been made within a few weeks which have not been noticed in the public prints. Gen. Kirby Smith sold brigade, composed of the 9th, 10th, and 11th Alabama and one regiment from Mississippi, is now under Gen. Wilcox, one of the newly made Brigadiers. Before the promotion of Gen. Smith the brigade was under J H Forney, Col. Commanding, Col. Forney is a North Carolinian by birth, but has become an Alabamian by adoption, and was appoint
Dick Swiveller (search for this): article 19
I am unable to give the result of the vote. The good news brought in the Dispatch concerning the damage to the armada, and the dissensions among the Yankees, has produced every happy effect upon the army. The soldiers forget their hardships in reading of the difficulties of the enemy, and begin to think, that after all everything has turned out for the best, Just let them alone, and they will whip themselves as effectually as we could do it. My concluding paragraph is apologetic, Having but a small stock of facts on hand, I am forced to husband them as Dick Swiveller did his similies. They are too precious to waste. A few everyday or two will not surfeit the public and I shall endeavor to deal them out as carefully as possible. Lest there be fears of running completely out, I will say that I have a fine old castle In Spain, in which are many rude but convenient manuscripts, from which I shall occasionally draw "to point a moral, or adorn a tale."
