    L.C. Latham, Captain commanding regiment
    Mr. Editor:
    I see a name advertised in your paper which, I suppose, is mine, as being absent from my 
    regiment, 4th N.C. Cavalry, without leave.  You will please do me the justice to state that I 
    have a furlough from the surgeon at the hospital and can show it at any time.  I also received 
    a passport for transport to the regiment from the hospital.  It does not seem necessary that a 
    sick soldier should be compelled to report to his regiment every month.

    William Parrish of Kernersville, N.C., Forsyth Co., requests us to inquire for his two sons, Jesse 
    L. and Hezekiah Parrish.  They belong to Company K, 54th N.C.T.  Any information about them 
    will be gratefully received by his father at the Kernersville post office.
    We regret to learn that General R.B. Vance ahs been captured by the enemy.  It is reported that 
    he was captured between Greenville and Knoxville.   Since the above was typed we have the 
    following from a friend in Marshall, Madison Co.  “The news in regard to a portion of General 
    Vance’s command is somewhat unfavorable.  He left Asheville and proceeded through some 
    of the western counties and crossing the mountains made his way to Sevier Co., Tenn.  He 
    then came upon a Yankee foraging train which he captured and was making his way out when 
    he came upon a blockade in the road on Cosby, surrounding him and it is felt that they have 
    succeeded in capturing him and a large portion of his command.   These are the facts as we 
    learned them yesterday from one who made his escape.”

    Among that distinguished number who by meritorious conduct have placed their names upon 
    the Roll of Honor, will be found the name of J.S. McCurdy, Company K, 7th N.C.T.  Although 
    a youth of 16, he enlisted in the second company that left his native county (Alexander) and 
    has been a faithful soldier ever since.  He participated in the Battle of Newburn and got to the 
    Army of Virginia where he passed safely through all the hard fought battles from the Seven 
    Days struggle to Gettysburg.  Out of 70 odd members of the company who left their homes 
    nearly three years ago with high hopes and brilliant expectations, only 15 of that number, I am 
    informed, are left to tell the sad tale.  Some have fallen by disease and others, wounded, are 
    incapable of rendering further service.  Sgt. McCurdy is one of the fortunate few who has passed 
    through the fiery ordeal of battle unharmed.  He has a wonderful constitution and is almost a 
    stranger to sickness.  Possessing a willing disposition , he is always found at his post, ready 
    and willing to perform any duty however arduous and dangerous.  Naturally fond of adventure, 
    he seems to glory in active military life.  Full of life himself, he seems to impart new life to others.  
    Possessed of a mild disposition, a good and generous heart, an agreeable manner, he is quite a 
    favorite in his regiment.  May his life be spared.

    We learn from the Asheville News that the Yankee forces estimated at about 600 which invaded 
    western North Carolina by the way of the Tennessee River, and got within a few miles of Franklin, 
    Macon Co., on their way to Asheville, were so bushwhacked by Col. Thomas’ Indians that they 
    retreated, leaving one captain, two lieutenants and a considerable number of wounded.  Asheville 
    is, therefore, safe for the present.

    11th N.C.T.—Col. Collett Leventhorpe, 11th Regiment, has resigned.  He entered service in the 
    fall of 1861 and has established a reputation second to no officer of his rank in the Confederate 
    army.  He was seriously wounded at Gettysburg, and it is supposed that this is the reason for
    tendering his resignation.  He is succeeded by Lt. Col. William J. Martin, well known as a 
    professor of chemistry at the University of N.C.  Major Frank W. Bird of Bertie becomes Lt. Col.

    Major General C.M. Wilcox, Commanding Division:
    General Lee directs me to acknowledge the receipt of the flags captured by Lane’s brigade in 
    the gallant charge of yesterday, and to say that they will be forwarded to the Secretary of War 
    and the names of the brave captors.
    C.S. Venable, A.D.C.
    The names of the captors are:
    Company K, 37th N.C.T. who brought off the colors of the 17th Michigan
    2nd Lt. O.A. Wiggins, Company E, 37th Regiment, who brought off the colors of the 51st

    Messrs. Editors:  Please give notice through the columns of your paper that Lt. McArthur is a 
    prisoner of war and in a hospital near Fortress Monroe—Hampton, I think.  He was wounded in 
    three places severely.  This notice came in a letter to Col. Isham A. Dumas from his nephew 
    J.F. Dumas, who was wounded in the head slightly and a prisoner at the same place.   J.P. 
    Dumas was in the 31st Regiment, Company B, who was severely and dangerously wounded 
    near Drewry’s Bluff on the 14th May, while the regiment was skirmishing; the shot passed 
    through his pharynx low down, scarcely missing the carotid and jugular.  His many friends will 
    be rejoiced to know he is doing well, and will soon be able to take charge of his command.  I 
    supposed Lt. McArthur belongs to the same regiment though it is not so stated in the letter, 
    but it was stated he lived near Fayetteville, N.C.—all that was said about him

    Col. Charles C. Blacknell, 22nd N.C.T., was wounded severely in the late Battle of Winchester

    was captured.  Major Lambeth of the 14th and Major Cobb of the 2nd were wounded and left 
    in Winchester.  Corp.  (or Captain?) J. Jones of this city in the command of the Raleigh Rifles

    It has been reported that 400 Home Guards had left Forsythe County for parts unknown.  
    We saw Col. Masten of that company who is the commander of the Home Guards and he 
    informs us that there are only 164 rank and file in that company.  Of this number only about 
    four have certainly reached that company.  It is suspected that a few others have now reached 
    it; but the whole number does not exceed ten.  From all the companies around not exceeding 
    190 have gone off and doubtless many of them have gone to different regiments in our service.

    Deserters have been committing depravations in western Carolina.  There was quite a severe 
    fight on the 2nd inst., in Watauga County between a party of deserters under one Jim Hartley 
    and a detachment of Home Guards under Major Bingham.  Four of the Home Guard were 
    wounded, one mortally.  Eight deserters were reported killed and several wounded.
    A correspondent writing from the army requests that publicity be given to the recent changes 
    which have been made in Kirkland’s and Martin’s brigades.  The former is now know as 
    “McRae’s” Brigade in Heth’s Division.  The latter as “Kirkland’s” Brigade in Hoke’s Division. 
     The 16th, 42nd, 50th and 60th N.C. Regiments are in Kirkland’s; the 11th, 26th, 44th, 47th,

    Indian Chief, C.R. Ship, Charleston, November 21, 1864
    Mr. Editor:
    Thinking that you would like to hear from N.C. Troops about Charleston, I drop you a line.  On the 
    4th inst., 36 of our boys left Camp Holmes to join the Marine Service at this place.  They arrived 
    safely and were received on board the Indian Chief, known as the Confederate States receiving 
    ship.  We have on board about 150 men most of which are from North Carolina and a goodly 
    number from Chatham County.  Our rations are much better than most of us expected.  We 
    get plenty of beef and crackers and sugar and coffee.  Our duties so far are light.  We have 
    prayers every evening in the vessel and the meetings are conducted by our worthy comrades 
    Edmund Wardell and Samuel Womble of Chatham.  I hope it will be a consolation to the loved 
    ones at home to hear that amidst all the temptations of camp life, there is a spirit of prayer in 
    our midst.
