Lee was sent around to the rear of Hooker's army, thin in Lulpeper. to burn driven off. and one of the troop? ers of the Fourth Regiment cap? tured a big flag st the head'iuarters of a Fedeisl regiment, which wa* surprised. He tore the flag from the staff, lashed it to tho tail of hia horse, remounted, sud pursued tba enemy for six miles, tho flag trailing the ground all the wsy. Many Incident* of thia ?ort could be told to Indicate how light-hearted were tho Powhatan troopers and their comrades, oven in tho midst of tho greatest danger. TOOK THE INSTRUMENTS. Even Captain Old (who wbs afterwsrds major), on the retreat to Appomattox Courthouse, when a brlgads of infantry thai had beru sent to burn the High bride*, was captured, agreed with Colonel XVIII.am B, Wooldridge, of Chesterfield, to take tho Instruments of a band be? longing to one of the regiments back to ? amp, a detail having been ordered for thia purpoae. The idea wa* to Bee what music our troopers could make with Fede? ral Instrument:-. When the detail was passing the prisoners, the Jitter Jeered, and said: "Never mind, we will pet those big horns hack to-morrow." and, sure enough, they did. The absurdity of a cavalry regiment having a brays band, was enough to mike anybody laugh. This Incident ls given to show that there was some spirit of humor lift, even in the ti.ukest hours of 'the Confederacy. In the Powhatan Troop there were pious people.

B BO far as the cavalry corps was concerned, because their wagons hardly ever came In sight. The only salution of the problenl of faed?ip and clothing the cavalry was to capture from thc enemy dO?dap, .tores, and anns and oqatpnMat? And they did lt. XX'hen the powhatan Troop reached Appomattox OOertbotBB) every taddst, bridle, canteen, haxersnek, halter, spur, pistol, can-bine, nnd sabre which they possessed had been captured from the en^my. The most remarkable thing Of all was that they refused to return these things, and after the surrender eat through the Federal cordon, and brought them home. THE MONUMENT. The object cf the survivors of the troop. In erecting the monument at powhatan Courthouse ls not sa much to glorify the Individual achievements of the officers and men of the company, nor to record the names of Its slain, but to If-ive fe th'-ir posterity an object which xviii re? mind them that UVir fathers did their duty cheerfully and unflinchingly under ? iel trying conditions, and al:o that they may keep in recollection an oiganl uti n that won the confidence of Ita gallant commander. The president of tho Monument Associa? tion ls Mr. .lames lt. Warta, xx!*o was a gallant soldier, and is now a ni Il-knoxvn builntee mm of Richmond. He ll gene? ral manager of the Farmvllle an! Uow 1..tan ra?reed, president of the Granite Building c inpnny, nnd is connected with other enterprises. Mr. XVerth has taken a deep Interest in the aff Hrs of the asso? ciation, and has been especially tenlm.* In the monument cause. It was upon his motton that the association on Thursday adopted the attractive design for the me moria! submitted by Captain E Igerton S. Roger*, of this city. The Powhatan Troop Buffered mnny hardahlpa They, aevoTtaelata, had gene? rally a good lime, but the war cost them forty-six killed and wound-d. many of whom xx-'re wounded txvo and three times, their horse* having been killed. WHAT IT WILL BE. The Jesign of Captain Rogers ls an ex ?-.-idingly appropriate one. Virginia frran lto I* to be used. A mound of turf 5 foet In heigh!, I* surmounted by a base of granite, lx-srtng the Inscription. "Erected to Keep tn Tender Recollection the Fow hstan Troop, Company E. Fourth Vir? ginia Csvalry. Second Brigade, First Di? vision. Cavalry Corps, Army of Northern Virginia." . On Ute back of tho base ls the inscrip? tion, "To Honor Vslor ls Mankind's De? light." and on the aide of It are Inscribed the words "IKl-MaBaaaa^lMo-Appo m-Attox." The front of tho shaft bears four garlands of Immortal!*-- rourssanUna the four years of the late memorable war, .nd these, with a drooping Confederat* flag, are draped and Interlaced with a branch of palm, the symbol of everlast? ing glory. Tbe rear of the shaft ia orna? mented with two crossed cavalry sabres, which are likewise entwined with the Confederate battle-flag. Surmounting the shaft is a cap-stone, highly ornamented with blossoms of the lotus plant, emblematic of eternsl, peace? ful Mop. Fiont and rear of t!*e cap? stone show amidst the lotus leaves a itir, typifying the star of destiny, upon a hose light bo many brave souls have gazed an! followed. The height of the monument la 12 feet, which, added to the i feet of the base, makes 17 feet from tbe base to the cap-stone. It ia hoped to have the formal unveiling tome time In the coming spring.

Souvenir score-cfirdH will be for sale on the grounds. Th f have been daintily gotten up, and are bound with the colors of UM contesting teams Intertwined. They contain a description of the games played hitherto this season by both universi? ties. Work ot tbe 'Varsities. The University of Virginia will arrive on a special train from Charlottesville on Wednesday night, accompanied by fyJO undergraduates. They xx Ul make their headquarters at Murphy's Hotel. The team has had th* advantage of Mackie, the captain of the crack team of tere ?*??B ago, of Pennsylvania Uni x-rsity, as a teach. He has been as? sisted by Johnson, the star player of last y.-ar's team, and other old menv bers of former b ams. The coaching has been rigid and vigorous, and the team playing here on Thursday will he the refinement of seventy-six tlrst-class men. Their great play ls 'round the ends. Since the Vanderbilt game the team has realised that, If it wins from Cairu UNIVERSITY OF NORTH CAROLINA TEAM. lina's strong team. Un-? must work, and work hard Every day since Monday Th* team baa lined up against tbe strong ?st sc^ubTln college. E*^*** johnson captains tbe scrub, and give* O-T-Varsity all it can do to puah tho ball over. Tho praeUcc il varied, soroo ???ithe scrubs will bo allowed to re? tain tho ball for fifteen minutes. In order to m-acUee tho rtgulare on defence, and certainty, wbeUMr tbs loam has lm arovod ta other retpectt or not, tt itanda more like 'M on defence than before this season. GETTINO IN GOOD FORM. Mike Johnson ls now bringing ths "eiids" and "backs" Into batter form. Under hi* coaching, they aro playing a fast game. BU! Hicks lost year's tackle ls out every day, working with the tacklo*. and Ihe side tine begins to realise that Bill is s great player yet. Ile keeps the new tacklee on the Jump. As to the Lue-up on Thanksgiving-Day, CAPTAIN FENTON, of '^rginla, tiler's is considerable doubt as to who will play right tackle and full-back. .Simms la a new man, not quite a.t h.avy as KillThrew, bat plays down In line. He 1 quick ea breaking through and tackles areli i-'ittrms xx ill be thu MBtN unless ?I-'ni." bt?cog np. Runton will take care ot any BUM he nu eta on Carolina's line. Ba will Play i right guard, and al this point X'lrginla tsicrtuiu that she has an ud\aututo-e over Carolina. Right tackle is a lout/if-*! place. Davis, who pta-, ed Hubstltute tsrklQ Dst year, ?, pei naps, the bust man for the pince, bil his shouloer ls still giving him trou? ble. XX'eish, a new man, who ba* had ihree yea-s In foovb'ill, one 0:1 Hanne ford College, which team he captained, and two years on the Young Men'p i.'.iris tlan Association of Philadelphia, shows clear knowledge of the game, but, coming so late, he may not be played, for fear of breaking up many plays. A FINE RIGHT END. Paul Cocke will play right end, and ls. the hes*t mm for end tn college. He ls a hard work" r, and one of the fastest tm n on the team. Morriss, xvl*o played on the Naval Ac.demy team two years, will play tatt. gaai? He ls the most aggressive man on ?in, always on tho Jump, and with the ball. Pilcher or Newbll will play left tackle. CAPTAIN GRKC.ORY. (Of North Carolina.) Pilcher is light, but breaks through well, possibly a littll two well. N.-xxbll ls the heavier, and very fast, and may bo played 1 at baU-hae?. Left-end will be owned and controlled by Sinodt. a new mun, very fast, a sure tackler, and weighs 185. Quarter-back U now In the hands of ' Hoxton, who seems to play a very good game, but ls very H_hu [ Junee, the old reliable, will play left half-back. Lambert will play full. He ls fast and full of ginger, kicks well, and goes through the line like a shot, but he ls too light. Lang, the fastest half on Virginia's field, has only been in college three or four weeks, but had played before this season, so is In fairly good condition. He can be trusted with UM ball. He ls a pupil of old tixvan Howden, who sent him to Virginia, and he will do his best to protect Swan's name on the 2Sth. The North Carollaa Lado. The team of the University of North Car dina will also arrive by special train on Wedneiday evening, and will make their headquarters st the Exchange Hotel. They have been training since August under Trenchard, th* great Princeton man, and lt li said that under bis di? rection they have attained a degree of perfection In Um breaking up ot Inter? ference that ls marvellous. Tho following lo tho personnel ot tha team, aa lt wUI appear against University of Virginia on Thanksgiving: E. C. Gregory, tha cool-headed captain of eur forces, li playing tatt ead ta a wsy that could hardly be Improved upon. Tbe team has long since seen the wisdom of selecting him aa capt?in. His work this season has far surpaased the bril? liant record he mada in UM, and it will be almost impossible for tho Virginians to circle his end on Thanksgiving. He ls 20 years old. weighs IM stripped, and ls 5 feet 10S inches. R. H. Wright ls playing left Mckie. This ls bis first year on ths 'Varsity. he having played butt year on the second eleven. Ho Is a hard, faithful worker, and hus made wonderful Improvement of late. Though rather light In weight, he Is a quick and heady player. Age, 24 years; weight, stripped, IM; height, I feet. R. T. Hurly ls a new man st left guard, but seem* to posses* a remarkable knack of catching on to th* game. He ls heavy, strong, and active, and can be counted on to hold his own against Ponton. Age. M; weight. 197; height, ? feet Mt Inches J. H. White is centre-rush, Sharp having been Injured early In tho aeaaon. White has played two years having been a substitute last year. Hts Improvement hss been groat. He snaps the ball bsck with precision, and keeps his opponent from breaking through his own line Sharp ls out on the field again, and will probably push White for the posH'-d. White's age. 21 years; weight, 191; height. 6 feet 7 Inches. STEADY WORK AT HIGHT. II. T. Collier ls playing steady ball st right guard. He ts quick and strong, snd understands lila position thoroughly, having played on tho 'Varsity last year. He rarely falls to advance the ball, when lt ls given to him. Age, 30 years; weight, LsD; height. C feet 10 laches. Jaeeab Laird is holding down his old position at right tackle. Ho ls a Ilene, doughty play r. Another season's ex? pel lenee has told wilh "Jim," and his playing I* PM) per cent, better than ll was last fogg. Ho ls a splendid ground gainer. Ag-*, Mi weight, ltj&; height, . fe-t 10 liicJies.
