How Lieut. Walter Bowie of Mosby's command met his end. [from the Richmond, Va., Times, June 23, 1900. In the McClure Magazine for December, 1898, an account of the death of Lieutenant Walter Bowie, of Mosby's Command, appears over the signature of Roy Stannard Baker, in which he cleverly shows how Detective Trail secured the Lieutenant's shot-gun from his home in Prince George county, Maryland, and with it followed him and his two comrades while scouting in Maryland during the war between the States, and when a favorable opportunity presented itself he killed the Lieutenant by emptying both barrels of his gun, loaded with buck-shot, into his breast, and then overpowered his comrades with an empty gun! How strange to those who know differently. I read this story with interest, because of the novel sense shown in it, yet with no little astonishment, on account of the vast amount of ingenuity displayed in its make-up.

Correspondence of the Richmond Dispatch.four Negroes Drowned — Petersburg Matters. Petersburg, April 16, 1861. I learn from the Captain of one of the City Point trains, that a most distressing calamity occurred in James River off the wharf there, which resulted in the drowning of four very valuable Negroes. One of them was owned by a gentleman at City Point, two by gentlemen in Prince George co., and one in Petersburg. The party started out in a little boat to visit a favorite fishing locality on the opposite side of the river sometime during the early part of the night, and it is supposed that the violent squall which arose between 9 and 10 o'clock overtook them and upset the boat, leaving them without the least power to save themselves. The absence of the Negroes was noticed, and search being made, their hats and coats were found washed ashore, with the canoe near Jordan's Point. Truly a sad termination to an innocent frolic. The loss to each of the owners will be qui
