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.

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 in good fighting condition. Well, good luck to him! Many a worse man has passed through wars unharmed, and he has my best wishes to carry him safely through this. A new way for warming tents has been put in practice here, and which is becoming quite common. At the rear of the tent a trench, some two
