why — the loss was one in two. There was still another account of this scene, but agreeing with the two given above in all of the essential points, written at the time by the now Professor W. W. Smith, of Randolph-Macon College--then a beardless boy serving in the Forty-ninth Virginia regiment--which was so graphic that I will publish it so soon as I can obtain a copy. A similar scene was enacted on the same day near the bloody angle, where General Lee was only prevented from leading Harris' Mississippi brigade into the thickest of that terrible fight by the positive refusal of the men to go forward unless their beloved Chieftain would go to the rear. These three incidents are all well authenticated; but Miss Emily Mason, in her biography, gives a correspondence between Hon. John Thompson Mason and General Lee, in which the fomer details the incident as it occurred with Gregg's Texas brigade, and asks the General about it. The reply is characteristic, and is as follows:

To General N. H. Harris: My Dear General — Your letter of August 24th was duly received. I sought a copy of Major Cooke's life of General Lee and read therthouse on the 12th of May with Gordon's division; and on the same morning with Harris' Mississippi brigade. As completing his account of the three incidents, we q the Wilderness to Petersburg, also gives a vivid description of the scene with Harris' brigade; but as it is substantially the same as the account given in his letter to General Harris, quoted above, we will not reproduce it here. He concludes as follows: The homely simplicity of General Lee in these scenes of the 6th and 12

bout which the enemy's lines of battle were formed. In the afternoon I received an order to advance after Brigadier-General Wright, who was posted on my right in a woods. Before the advance was made I received an order from the Major-General, through his Aid-de-Camp, Captain Shannon, to advance but two of my regiments, and deploy them closely as skirmishers. I had then a thin line of skirmishers in front, and at once sent out the Forty-eighth and Nineteenth regiments, Colonel Jane and Colonel Harris commanding. These regiments advanced some two or three hundred yards beyond the barn and house, which were burned. Later in the day I sent out the Sixteenth, and receiving information that the enemy was threatening their right and left flanks, I took out the Twelfth regiment, and requested Brigadier-General Mahone, who was on my left, in the rear of another division, to send me a regiment to support my left. He being at this time ordered to the right, could not comply. When I reached

after the left wing of the Thirty-third was withdrawn, and Lieutenant-Colonel Cowan was wounded, gallantly commanded the skirmishers in the night attack; was wounded in the charge next day, and is now thought to be in the hands of the enemy. Lieutenant-Colonel Speer was wounded in one of the night attacks, and Colonels Avery and Haywood, Lieutenant-Colonels George and Ashcraft, and Major Davidson in the charge Sunday morning. After the loss of so many field officers, Major Barry and Captains Harris, Saunders, Brown and Nicholson, rendered me grent assistance. Captain Saunders, in his official report, calls special attention to the efficiency of Lieutenants E. Price and J. L. Farrow of the Thirty-third regiment. Lieutenant Bryan, ordnance officer, and Lieutenant Nicholson, brigade inspector, discharged their duties well, though the latter had but few stragglers and no skulkers to drive forward that I have yet heard of. I am specially indebted to my Aid-de-camp, Lieutenant O. La

early dawn. I, moreover, discovered by means of scouts that there was no enemy in advance of their usual lines on the left of the Varina road. At daybreak the next morning the pickets on the right (from Johnson's brigade) advanced and found the enemy on Signal Hill throwing up entrenchments. I received orders to dislodge them if I could. During the night three regiments from Pickett's division reported and were put in position near the B. Aiken house, in all about six hundred (600) men. Harris' Brigade was found near the B. Aiken house, and with these troops to hold the line, I thought that I could drive the enemy away with mine, and was making dispositions with this view, when I received orders to suspend operations until further orders. About sunset received orders to proceed, but it would have been impossible to arrange for it by dark. The navy opened upon the enemy during the evening; Johnson's brigade advanced against the hill early the next morning and found it abandoned.

ast number of those papers, the writer, General N. H. Harris, regrets what he regards, seemingly, asiently fire over the crest of the work. General Harris referred by name to those who had written rsburg. When Colonel Venable informed me that Harris's brigade would soon report, I replied that I at held Gregg, it would have been well for General Harris to have quoted from my article on that poiof Gregg; and in battery Gregg was a number of Harris's brigade, that exceeded his (Lane's), if I refew more quotations will be made, and from General Harris himself. Among those he cites as having eerror of attributing this brilliant defense to Harris's brigade alone, doubtless arose from Lieutenang him. It seems not a little strange that General Harris could have supposed such orders could be p It was a well conceived and timely act of General Harris, setting fire to the log-cabin winter quared that such would be the result.

Johnston has been doing most successful work in Jackson Miss., Vicksburg, etc. With General Johnston's push, tact, and zeal, aided by the efficient help of such kind friends as General N. H. Harris, Geo. M. Kline, Esq., &c. there is no wonder that he has had splendid success. Our next number (December) will be issued early in the month, and will close Volume Ten, which will then be ready for binding. We propose preparing for it a General Index of our ten volumes, which will be very valuable, not only for its convenience in reference, but also as showing at a glance the extent and real importance of what we have already published.
