sburg. General Early was notified, and also viewed the position. Returning to camp, he assembled his major-generals, and a council of war determined upon a daylight attack—Gordon in command of the second corps, composed of Evans', Ramseur's and Pegram's divisions. He was to turn the enemy's left at Buckton, and Kershaw, with Wharton, was to rush the front. These movements were to be made as the first ray of the rising sun pierced the sky. Early and staff were awaiting on the hills overlookinidan, about 4 P. M., moved forward his command of 20,000 men, overlapping his left flank, which seen by Doles' brigade, they fled in a panic and without firing a gun from their position. The other commands followed, and Early was left with only Pegram and Wharton, less than 1,000 men, to combat this overwhelming force, which they did until they reached the bridge, and they, too, retreated in disorder, leaving Early's twenty-four pieces of artillery, also ambulances and ordnance train, at the m

tinguished in the First Manassas battle by being in the charge with the Stonewall Brigade that took Ricketts' Battery on the Henry House hill, which ended the fight in the Confederates' favor. And then, too, we were thrown into the balance at Spotsylvania Courthouse, May 12, 1864, after Johnson's division was captured, when all seemed to be lost, and it was our duty to try to retake the works. Then it was General R. E. Lee rode up and offered to lead us, the Forty-ninth Virginia Regiment, Pegram's Brigade, Gordon's Division, and William A. Compton, of Company D, Forty-ninth, led his (General Lee's) horse to the rear; and history knows the rest. And it is a pleasure to me always to assist in having all of the brave Confederates, and more especially the names of those who lost their lives in the struggle of ‘61-65 for constitutional liberty and State's rights, placed upon the Confederate roster, so that the histories may duly record their deeds on the brightest pages of chivalry and

Commissioned. Mr. J. W. Pegram, late of the Richmond Grays, has been commissioned, by the President, Adjutant of the 7th Virginia Regiment, under Col. Armistead.
A good beginning. --We understand that to Maj. J. W. Pegram and Maj. T. P. Turner has been assigned the duty of organizing and training the negro soldiers, preparatory to putting them in the field. They are both young officers of the highest promise, distinguished alike for gallantry in the field and for skill in the discharge of this peculiar duty.--They speak in the most encouraging terms of the enterprise, both expressing the belief that the negro under proper officers, will make an excellent soldier. It is a great pity this had not been done six months ago. But we may yet derive enormous benefit from the experiment. Success to these gallant young officers.
Refused to receive them. --We append the following card, which will explain itself: "Headquarters recruiting rendezvous,"Colored troops, "Richmond, Virginia, March 19, 1865. "To the Editor of the Dispatch: "Will you do us the kindness to state in your issue of to-morrow that the two negroes under sentence of death, and who were reported in the city papers of last Saturday as having been assigned to us, have not been, and will positively not be, enlisted in the Confederate service. "J. W. Pegram, Major P. A. C. S. "Thos. P. Turner, Major P. A. C. S."
