Pool: Dear Sir : In almost all the notices I have ever seen of the achievements of the 7; vision to which the Texans in Leo's army w-re attached, I have observed that entire emmard to be spokeu ofas the "Texandi visioo," "Hood's Texans," or in other similar terms, conveying an erroneous idea, by which the gallant deeds of other. as well as their own, are credited to Tex ans only. My attention was called afresh to this matter on reading, in your issue of the 29th nit., the thrilling poetical contri bution of Mrs. Clarke commemorative of the incident at the battle of the Wilder ness wherein Lee was prevented by his own men from leading the charge. Oi course it would be hypercritical, even in a historical ballad, to expect absolute his torical precision ; but the general current of the allusions made by the authoress in portraying the sceue, the mention of ''two brigades of Texans." &c., indicate that her mind, was Imbued with the common idea that it was only Texans whom Lee offered to lead on that occasion, and only Texans who resisted his doing so. To prevent error and injustice from be coming crystalized in history and embalm ed, in poetry, not only in reference to that particular scene, but the other doings of the division so commonly called ''the Texans" in war reports and correspon dence, 1 beg room to say that Hood's di vision (originally Whiting's, and finally Field's, after Hood was promoted) was first composed of two brigades, one coi., eisting of the Cth N. C, 2d and 11th Miss, and 4th Ala. regiments, and the other con sisting of the 1st. 4th. and 5th Texas, and S - 9 9 3d Ark, regiments. Tims organized, it fought through, the entire campaign of 1862, Chickahominy, Second Manassas South Mountain, Antietam and Freder icksburg, except that just prior to this Jast battle the 54th and 57th N. C. regi- end of the year 18G2, the Gth, 54th and 57th N. C, and 2d and 11th Miss, regi ments were transferred to other divisions. and the 15th, 44th and 47th Ala., together with the 4th Ala. which remained untra'is ferred, composed one brigade of Hood's i division, and the aforesaid three Texas, ami one Ark. regiments composed anoth er, brigade of the same ; and to these two wore added Jenk.ns' S. C, and Kenning's and Anderson's Oa. brigades. That divis ion was constituted of the aforesaid rive brigades from about the beginning of the campaign of 18Gd, up to tho close of the war, participating iu tho battles of Get tysburg, Chickamaug t, Knoxville, Wilder ness, Spotsylvania, &g., Szc.t $:c, down to Appomattox C. II. It was this division, then commanded by Field, and composed as above stated, which Lee offered to lead in the charge at the Wilderness. It then contained upwards of twenty regiments, of which only three were Texans, Some ex cuse will be perceived for the great com mander offering to lead in person so im portant a fraction of his army on that crit ical occasion, but to imagine him propo sing to do tho same tiling with only three decimated and thin regiments,- however gallant they might ie, (and there were noce more heroic than the three Texas regiments) on so grand a field as that, where hosts innumerable wero contending, would be to detract from his reputation an a calm, self-poised, and prudent Captain. It is a fact, however, thut as the divis ion was thrown into line for the charge, the brigade to which the Texans belonged reared it left llank on the main road, and the Alabimi brimido rested its right llmk on the road at the same point, and Lee was in the. road exactly between them. It is also true that when the charge was about to be ordered, he intimated his thought of leading it in pevvou, v. hioh met with clam orous objection from the soldiers all about hiiv,, both Texans and Alabainians. In deed, previously, as he superintended the placing of the line, very many of tho men, as they filed past him into position, (the bullets then coming thick) kept crying out, "(Jet hack out of tire, (b n we'll take care of them." I did not myself s'-e anyone seize the bridle of hi horse, j s is related to have been done, b :nj at lh.it moment some fifty yards away on the Hue of the Alabamians, b it the fact, was cur rent immediately afterwards, and I have no doubt of it, and this wis pr j!u,bly done liy .a - i i.au'.

It is deemed not only desirable, but an imperative duty, that early measures be taken to accumulate a supply of winter clothing for the North Carolina troops, now in the field. The scare: t- of mate rials for sale in the State, and the unci i tainty of procuring supplies from ubr.;nl, force us to rely upon our domestic re sources. it is thought tl:;;t every family can spare one or more blankets, without persoiiai in convenience, or a pair of woolen socks, and it is believed that for such a purpose a call would be responded to with alacrity. It has therefore been concluded that an appeal for this jmrpo.se be made to the great body of the people, and with that view I have to request the Sheriffs of tho several counties to act as agei t.s of the State, to solicit a contribution of the kind. To this end they are requested to circu late this notice, and to employ agents in every district of their couuty to further the matter. All contributions of this kind may be boxed and forwarded to the nearest Rail road depot, and due information thereof sent to the Governor. The Sheriffs are further requested to furnish to the Governor a list of the don ors. The transportation of these donations will be at the expense of the State and the bill for such service should be duly j forwarded tor payment. HENRY T. CLARK, Governor of N. C.

Surgeon General of X rth Carolina: Dear Sin: Your appointment to the elevated position which you occupy, was an earnest, to your numerous friend? throughout the State, of the success of that i nportaut department of tho service.

The erection of the hospital ret Petersburg.for the benefit of our troops in Virginia, is a monument of your fore thought and sagacity, in anticipating the wants, an 1 providing for the comfort, of our suffering soldiers. I5ut notwithstan ding your kind care and attention toting matter, our brave troops have suffered very much from uickness. Some, in their en encounter with the enemy, whilst defend ing "the land of the free and the home of the brave" have f illen victims of tin-arrow that tlietli by da.; but a far greater num ber have fallen victims to the pestilence that wall -.' iu darkness. The lines of our patriotic troops may be said to exteuid from Sev.t 11 Mountain, Virginia te) Port Royal, South Carolina.
