Lieut. H. H. Granger acting commander, should be mustered into the service Tuesday next, and that they should proceed to Washington on Wednesday, Sept. 10. The Battery is full and the boys are anxious to go; and such of them as are on furlough are requested to note the above arrangement and govern themselves accordingly. Marriage in camp. [Sept. 11, 1862.] On the evening of the 9th inst. Mr. Tobinas Beck of Charlestown was married at Camp Stanton, Boxford, to Miss Sarah Kilgore of Hampden, Me., by Benj. S. Barnes, Esq., J. P. The occasion brought together a great many of the ladies of Boxford and of the friends of the bridegroom and bride. The officers of the 10th Mass. Battery, of which the bridegroom is a member, were also interested spectators of the ceremony. Bond's Band volunteered their services and the whole party, military included, having formed a square, the ceremony was performed under the bright, shining moon. The happy pair afterwards received the congratulat

urse of people. The service was quite simple. From the many tributes to the memory of Dr. Hoge and the several analyses of his gifts and characteristics, the following may be cited: Rev. Richard McIlwaine, D. D., President of Hampden-Sidney College, writes of his interest in education: His interest in education. Nowhere outside the circle of his immediate family and church will the death of this honored servant of God be more lamented and occasion a deeper sense of loss than at Hampden-Sidney. He was born at this place during the presidency of his grandfather and while his father was a professor in the college, in a building still standing and in use. He was graduated here with the highest honors of his class, along with such men as Hon. W. C. Carrington, Colonel Charles S. Carrington, Judge F. D. Irving, and Rev. W. T. Richardson, D. D. When still a young man he was elected a member of the Board of Trustees—an office the duties of which he punctually and regularly fille

How deepened, through that dread surprise, The mystery and the awe of death! From the high place whereon our votes Had borne him, clear, calm, earnest, fell His first words, like the prelude notes Of some great anthem yet to swell. We seemed to see our flag unfurled, Our champion waiting in his place For the last battle of the world, The Armageddon of the race. Through him we hoped to speak the word Which wins the freedom of a land; And lift, for human right, the sword Which dropped from Hampden's dying hand. For he had sat at Sidney's feet, And walked with Pym and Vane apart; And, through the centuries, felt the beat Of Freedom's march in Cromwell's heart. He knew the paths the worthies held, Where England's best and wisest trod; And, lingering, drank the springs that welled Beneath the touch of Milton's rod. No wild enthusiast of the right, Self-poised and clear, he showed alway The coolness of his northern night, The ripe repose of autumn's day. His steps were slow, yet for
r by omission, we think it due to the gallant corps in question, to state the facts as they certainly occurred. The Hampden Battery, commanded, at the time, by 1st Lieut James Pleasants, Captain Marye being absent on recruiting service, was leficipate. But, about 4 o'clock the 5th Virginia was ordered off to the left flank, and about half-past 5 the 42d and the Hampden-Battery were ordered in the same direction. They hurried off to the scene of conflict, and before they reached the spotetiring down the hill, and at this time our forces were giving way to the enormously superior numbers of the enemy. The Hampden Battery was in imminent danger of being taken. A few yards only separated it from the Yankees, who were charging on our in the field below the woods — and by their undaunted courage saved the battery from capture. It thus appears that the Hampden battery was not altogether "in the reserve." It did not, indeed, get into action — but it passed through a raking cross

he young Pretender. The illusion is assisted by his slouch hat and black plume. This picture is one of the most telling of the group, marked by considerable vigor and character. But, undoubtedly, the best is that of Stonewall Jackson. If we see the cavalier in Stuart, in Jackson we almost expect to find the brown beard time had dealt more gently with the great captain than we were led to suppose) earring crisply over the steel gorget and buff coat of the Puritan. He seems like a modern Hampden (in fact, there is some resemblance to one picture of the patriot that we have seen), and is painted, as his men "loved to see him," in the set of reading prayers. His arms are flung out right and left along the horizontal limb of a tree, and his head is thrown back. There is a tender expression in the sweet, almost feminine, upper part of the face, as if he were just praying for the women and children; but in the firm mouth we can see the spirit which will anon call on the God of Battles
