XO. 20 Southern SSlar iloctrn. tnf Tn this column we desire to publish such poetry as is commemorative of events which occurred during the war, or of the sentiments and feelings of those who par ticipated in it, and memorial sketches in verse of gallant ollicers and men who fell in battle, or signally distinguished them selves. Our supply of poetry on hand is less than any other material, and we re spectfully ask those who have such as is suited to the purpose for which we de sign this column, to add to our small stock. North Carolina can boast of seve ral (ladies and gentlemen) who have poet ical talents of high order, and from them we should be pleased to hear at all times. Written on hearing a distant Bugle blow, and affectionately Dedicated to the sur vivors if the (jallant Stonewall brigade. 1SY ANNA ALKX. CAMERON.

An ireident is related by a chaplain who wits in the army during one of our hard fought battler. The hospital tents had been titling up fast as the wounded men had been brought to the rear. Among the number was a young man mortiliy wounded, and not able to tpeaK. It was near midnight, and many a loved one from our homes lay sleeping on the battle iield, that sleep that knows no waking un til Jesus should call them. The surgeons had been their rounds of duty, and all was quiet. Suddenly this youug man, before speechless, calls in a clear distinct voice "Here !" The surgeon hastened to his side and asked what he wished. "Nothing," said he; "they are calling the roll in heaven, and I was an swering to my iimiic." He turned his h. a 1 and was gODe, goue to join, the great arm; whoe uniforms is white iu the bloo I of the Lamb. Beader, iu the great roll call of eternity, your1) namewill.be hear. I.

John A. louug, of Char- ! lotte, well known throughout the State as a gentleman of high character, and as a leading public man in his section, was Lt. Col., and Bryan Grimes, of Pitt, who sub sequently von a merited promotion to a Major Generaley, was the Major. Among its line ollicers were men, who had repre sented the people iu many positions of trust and promiuence. Cob AtnU-r.-on pro ceeded at once with energy and enthusi asm tc reduce the law and incongruous elemcuts of his command to system, and although applying to it the rigid regimen of the regular army, he combined with discipline and decision, so much of a lia bility and kindness, to reconcile the impa tient material to his rule, and to win the hearts of his regiment. His men loved him from the start, ami their affection grew almost to idolatry as they, iu the course of time, experienced his tender re gard foa their comfort, his jtihtand impar tial administration, and the judgment, prudence and caution, which he utii'.ed with tho gallantry of the Marshal of the Empire. And he in turn w; s pioud of his regiment, and well he might have been, for a braver band of heroes, never faced a fire, or marched under martial banners. The regiment after being fully or ganized at Garysburg was ordered to Manassas, which it reached a few days after the battle of tho twenty first of July. A short time after its arri val Col. Anderson was appointed comman dant of the post and under his skillful superintendauce many of the fortiri nations around Manassas wore completed. Even at this early diy he was strongly recom mended for a Brigadier Generaley by Generals Beauregard and Johnston who were impressed with eminent capacity; but owing to certain invidious representa tions the Government at that time failed to recognize his claims. He remained in command tit Manassas until the t vacua tioiiofthat post iu Marci l.SiJJ. At Clarke's mountain on the Rapid in n route, for the Peninsular, Gen. lYa'.h r ston of Miss., was assigned to t!u com mand of the brigade Gen. Johnston ami Gen. D. H. Hill commanding the dii.-iiu expressed surprise and regret at his super set In re. The command reported for duty lo General Rains, at Yorktown on the lJtL of April and was assigned to the left ol Gen. Magiuder's line of defence. Al though present and slightly engaged at Williamsburg, on the 5th of May the regi ment did not receive its real baptism oi tire, until the great battle of Seven Pines, on the 31st. Here Col. Anderson in the absence of Featherston commanded tie brigade, which consisted of the 47th Va., Col. (ex-Gov. Smith, the 27th and 2S:h Georgia, and 4th North Carolina. Tie latter carried into action 520 cniited m :. and had 8G killed and 'J7G wounded ! Of 27 ollicers for duty, 21 were either killed or wounded ! No comment is ucedelto point the moral of such an exhibition. Not is it our purpose to give any further de tails of this desperate engagement, with its many tragic and thrilling iueitb-uts. When its history is fully written the fact will be lecoguized that few, if any, buttle; of tho war were fought with more co aspic uous valor, with finer exhibition of indi vidual intrepidity or more splendid in stances of aggregated daring. Col. Ander son behaved throughout with such dit:u guished gallantry and skdl as to elicit tie highest encomiums from G-u. D. II. Iliil ami tt) di aw from the goernmeut a, prompt commission as Brigadier General, which was issued to him o:i the 0th day i f Juno. The brigade assigned him was compos- d of 2nd, 4th, 14th, and 30th regiments ot N. C Troops all of which earned and im mortality of renown. On the 2Gth of June, the series of battles around Richmond began in all of which the brigade participated, and iu tint con cluding one of which (Malvern Hill) Gen. Anderson received a wound iu the hand, while leading his brave boys through u terrific storm of shot and shell. The writer of this sketch joined Gen. An derson as Adjutant General of his brigade ou the 25th day of August, 1SG2, while it was in bivouac on the Rupidan the army, after some six weeks reposo from the giant struggles of the "seven days," being in route for the first Maryland invasion. It was nut the fortune of Gen. Hill's division to have an active part in any of the en gagements of this remarkable campaign, until that of the 11th of September, at tu -South Mountain Gap, near Boubao in Abn-vhiiei 'jf which it mav witi. i safety be observed that, in its cou 1 sequeuces, in the accomplish;. s-'nt "f pt ' ! determined object, and in the : ku!;-u i - position of small numbers to ; " j whelming odds, it is without n p-ruii i ' war. The divi.-iou unaided uniil a late i hour of the. afternoon, held in check th ! advance of the greater portion of McClel ! 1 an's vast army, endeavoring with butt-, r- ing-ram impetus, tt) force its way- through ! the narrow gap, and thereby afiord tim;- mg tint In 18G0, tht; strife in Congress between the North and tin? South, growing out of the Compromise agitation of that period, invaded the preciucts of tho Academy, and controversy was as excited and blood as hot there as in the National Legislature. While youug Anderson was earnest and decided, in the vindication of the imperil ed rights of his section, and devoted, with all the enthusiasm of his generous nature, tt the sunny land of his nativity, his dis cussions were always marked by courtesy. In one of these discussions as described by Gen. Stanly, it was remarked by one of the participants : "Well, if war must fol low, I hope that my day may have passed, that I may not live to see it. "No," said Anderson, "deeply as I too would deplora j it, it must come, I would teel it wrcng that I should put off, for a succeeding gen eration, a misery that I am more entitled to bear." Those who were roosj intimate ly acquainted with George B. Anderson know that if there was any one trait next to his scrupulous conscientiousness and exalted sense of personal honor Unit distinguished and made him the nature's nobleman he was, it was his utter abnega tion of self. And what a superb illustra tion of it was here ! In 1852, the class graduated, Anderson's standing entitling him to the "choice of arm he should enter, he selected that of the Dragoons. After spending six months at the cavalry scliool at Carlisle, he was detailed by the lion. Jefferson Davis, theu Secretary of war, as an assistant to Lieut. Parke, of the Engineers, ordered to make a survey for a practical railroad route in California. In this scieutislc duty, he spent most of the summer, fall ami winter of 1853. We next find Lieut. Anderson joining his regimeut, the 2nd Dragoons, at Fort Chadburne, Texas. Auioug the officers more or less connected with this extreme anddesob.te frontier post, during the year of his stay, may be mentioned- W. J. Hardie, R. H. Anderson, Albert Sidney Johnson, Geoige II. Stuart and H. II. Sibley, afterwards Confederate Generals and Pleasanton and Stanly subsequently general ollicers in the Federal army. In the fall of 1855, the regiment marched across the plains from Texas o For t Riley, Kansas, when Anderson, theu 1st Lieut, commanded his company in the absence of Capt. Patrick Calhoun, then in his last illness. The winter of 1855-'5G was spent at Fort Riley, and in the spring of the latter year, the Kansas troubles commenced. F'rom that time until the middle of the summer of 1857, the troops in the country were incessantly engaged either in the arrest of predatory parties headed by such marauders as Jim Lane and Ossawatomie Brown, or iu iutei posing to prevent the destruction of some village by a Missouri mob. Here Lt. Ander son had for a commander (Jen. E. V. Sum ner and served in the same command with the since illustrious Jos. E.
