And they marvelled as they saw him pass,

BY GENEnIAL WAIE HAMPTON.
The following sketch of scout life, by
General Wade Hlamtpton, is taken from
the August number of the Land iwe
Captain Jom sten Cooke, In his last
book, ''Wearing of the Grev"-a most
interesting and captivating' work-has

those brave men, whom I recognize
well, though .his iame is not mentioned,
but he omits one exploit which was
among the most remarkable of his ca
reer. In supplying this omission, I
shall supply tho incognito of S- as
Captaiti Gooko nas not, glyCv ilam.
The occasion to which allusion is here
made, took place when Meade lhd his
army encamped near Culpeper Court
House, and the object was to endeavor
to ascertain the position, unmbers, &e.,
&c., of the Federal troops. S.-- tin
dertook to accomplish this object, and
lho adopted a ilan worthy of his boldness
amd address. Disguising himself as a
country woman, he procured a small
cart, which he loaded with poiltry,
vegetables, &c., and he drove boldly into
the Yankee lines, where he made ap
plication for a pass. This he obtained ;
ie then sold his stock and after spending
threc days at Meade's heal-quarters-it
is to be hoped without scandal to that
worthy -he left his friends in blue,

information desired. This anecdoto
forms the only exception to the state.
ment made by me previously. That
only such as came under my personal
observation would be given. This oe
curred before S-- was associated with
us, as lie was after General Stuart's
ileath ; but I have every reason to be
lieve that the affair happened just as ias
Selecting special scouts and par-ticular
incidents from the whole niunber, as I
propose to do, I beg now to introduce
to your readers, Sergeant Shadbourne,
of the Jeff. Davis Legion, whose ex
p'oits would of themselves form a vol
nime. Shadbourno was detailed as a
scont by General Hampton, anid ho wvas
constantly ongaged on this duty until
the end of the war. Heo was a youm g
man of very prepossessing appearance,
tall, active and resolute. Ordinirily,
lie appeared to be only a handsome
youing fellow, wvith large, soft, mild
eyes ; but as soon as a fight began, he
became transformed instantly in to to
dashing cavalr-y man ; his whole soul
seemed to be in the battle, and his black
eye blazed li'<e fire. Armed with at
least two pistols, and often three, lie
would dash against the enemhy, firing
a rapiditf ande precislon not sur
passed by etveh Mosb',' who Was "very
Jiandy with his p'stol. - But ini all the
excitement of a battle;, Shadbourne was
perfectly cool, ready' for any emergency,
or tswaail himself of any' advantage.
On. ccasione of' this sort, ho proved.that
hu'o 6easod qualities which only needed
a wider fied dfor their exeroise to make
him a leado'r. 'As ilhustrativo of this I
shlall glie, first, an aCebundt of ono of his

ral Hampton just. after the.. fight at
Reams' Station toAnd where the enmemy
were. Taking five men with him, h'd
mndved npya county road leading from
Halifar to the sta go road. On this, lie
ha~d not p roeer far, when lie met the
ndvanced ane,1 n!IKanti's r.etr.ati.g
column. I Io at once ordered themn to
surrender, when they begani to deploy.
Without a momem's hesita mhon, htle gave
orders in a loud voice for "two regi
tpents to be brought up ; one on' tiho
right, the other on tle left.." As soon
as this order was given, the Yankees
said they would surrender. Placing
one man on one side of the road and
occupying tho other, Shadlbouirne di
rected the Yankees to advance and drop
their arms. While doing thiz, the main
cohmin of the eremy hove in sight, and
seeing tihe condit-ioi of their advance
guard, they charged to release them.
IBt Shadbourno was too quick for them.
IHe put his prisoners in motion, guarded
by three me0n on each flank, made them
galliop, then "form fours" aid all swept
down toward our conmnan'l. As soon
as his prisoners were closed up and
chm/ipngq from thci' own. men, 'lie dis.
patched a man to inform Ceii. llamp
toil to "look out, for the Yankees wero
charging down the road lie was on."
Tho General immediately took a few
men back and soon met Shadbourne,
who had brought orf safuly seventy
three prisonrs, the whole advance squaud
rou of' Kautz's conniand, and this too
in full sight of the enemy I For this
feat, Shadomirne was highly compli
mented by his commanding officer, and
nle was recoinnnended for prointion on
the ground of his "extrardinary skill
and gallantry" shown by him in fais con
duct of this affair.
On one occasion, lie was betrayed by
a negro, while sleeping in the lines Of
the enemy and was captured. While
his captors were takini g hdin of, he re
quested them to let him look for his hat,
which had kopped. In llhe prctcnded
search .for this he got near a -wood,
when dashing through tihe surrounding
enemny, ho made into it, followed by
a volley from the whole party and a.
vigorotu pursuit, which proved fruit.
Subsequently, he, with anotlier brave
scont, young Swan of tle 1st North
Carolfna cavalry, was capturod in Fred
ricksburg. T/ry iwere hand cu;yd( and

Party of our men on signal ditmy, and
Shad bourne also ascertained that a com.
pany of negro cavalry was in the
habit of patrolling a certain rdad

to join hem, our two scouts formed an
ambuish for the Yankees, attacked them

"Quito a chaniga of policy has taken
