ng 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 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.

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 disciplined regiments here. Col. Taylor is anxious to have his teachings put to some practical use in the field, and I hope he may

Forney there became very popular with the troops under his command, and by constant dr first battery opposite Fort Pickens. When the Provisional Army was formed, Col. Forney entered the service as Colonel of the 9th Alabama Regiment.--Being the rankijor General, and immediately after the command of the brigade was taken from Col. Forney and given to Col. C. M.

y through the fight, but through the cowardice of his masters, fell into the hands of the enemy. On account of his jaded appearance and his many wounds, he was turned out to graze. There he stands beneath the tree in the meadow trying to shelter him self from the rain. Some time ago a party of young fellows got the old horse for a short ride in the country. Procuring a wagon, they hitched up and started off as merrily as possible. A Richmond boy, who had seen the horse perform on the 21st, determined to play a trick, and so stationed himself behind a tree on the road where they would pass, Along came the old horse at the top of his speed, drawing the rattling wagon with its merry load until opposite the tree where the trickster was bidden. Stepping out, he shouted "Halt" In a loud tone. The horse "halted" as suddenly as if stopped by a cannon ball, and instantly wheeled to the left to unlimber. Over went the wagon, and over went its load, measuring their length in the dirti

Army of the Potomac. [our own correspondent.] Centerville, Nov. 5th. It is now certain that the enemy has fallen back from his advanced position, and either gone into his entrenchments or taken a new shute towards our position. The latter seems hardly probable. A strange rumor is in circulation, one of those tales traceable to no particular origin, and yet believed on account of its probability, that McClellan has attempted an advance upon three different occasions, but retired each time because his men did not come up to the mark. Now, the rumor goes, he has given up entirely until the success of the armada shall inspire his men with confidence. Possibly this may be true; out, if so, only by accident. One thing now seems evident — McClellan does not intend to advance until the fleet is heard from, or until the Southern troops, hearing of the invasion of the Cotton States, shall have gone home and left Bull Run at his disposal.

flat stones and earth, leaving a small fire place inside the tent. The flue is made by placing a barrel over the farther end of the trench. When the wind is the right way these fire-places are very comfortable, but when it is not they smoke terribly. Another objection to them is that the trenches are apt to wash away during rains, Just fire enough to look at is better than none at all, and if is does smoke one can bear it passably well. Bohemian. Army of The Potomac, Manassas, Nov. 6th. The past twenty-four hours has been so quiet that I am in doubt whether an item can be extracted from them or not. I have heard nothing new, and, therefore, how can I be expected to tell any news? Unless the army furnishes facts, how am I to publish facts about the army? St. Cecilla herself could not have played the organ if there had been nobody to blow the bellows for her. As the are sight of a fire seems to give warmth, so, I am conceited enough to believe, a letter containing n
