We extract the following from the account given in full the names of the citizens presented as having been present. A small detachment of Randlett’s provost guards was stationed at the door with strict orders to refuse admittance to all officers and privates either of the army or navy. None other than citizens of the town were admitted except the reporters of the press of New York and other places and businesses. In the throng that filled the body and galleries of the large house we noticed a majority of the male inhabitants of the tour. Among those present were the following well known citizens: G.O.

A(?), abdomen, since dead Wilmington Journal, 20th Correspondence from Camp McRae’s Brigade, near Petersburg, Va., Feb. 22, 1865 Messrs Editors: Perhaps I many have been regarded as negligent and indifferent to your correspondence for not appearing in your columns for several weeks past. Through the irregularity of the mails a month or more ago some of my letters to you were lost, and for some time past my duties have been so heavy that I had not time to write to you as I wished. We have been pretty closely confined to one locality and there have been but few opportunities to get news or items of interest. The day time here is almost totally devoted to army duties by those who have much to do, and the scarcity of candles and other means of light prevent writing or study at night. So that after dark we have to crowd into our little huts and play the game of “sockum” and sing corn-shucking songs till bed time. We have been on the line in front of the enemy several miles southwest of Petersburg during the winter. The weather has often been extremely severe, but the troops have all enjoyed much of comfort and very good health. Our rations are enough to live on, but were it not for supplies from home many a North Carolina soldier would suffer. The greatest injustice or deficiency the soldier has experienced this winter was short rations and above all things this should be remedied if possible. Soldiers here from North Carolina and most of Virginia and South Carolina are generally able to get supplies from home but those from other states have not been thus favored. People at home, if they have any to spare, cannot send too much eatables to the army. This is a great time for robbery and swindling and great care must be exercised or boxes and packages will be lost and stolen. Good barrels are better, safer and more convenient for conveying supplies than large boxes. It is always better to send provisions raw—just simply meal, flour, bacon, beef, potatoes, turnips, peas. The army has ample opportunity for cooking and the provisions can be saves so much longer raw than cooked. The army has suffered much inconvenience for not being paid regularly and promptly. The private soldier at the front should be paid of the first and best, and it is a disgraceful shame that such injustice should be allowed. We have been under marching orders here pretty often and on the 5th inst., were in a fight some two miles further to the right. The enemy with very heavy force—thought to be 50,000—moved towards our right, and extended his line farther along, parallel to our line, and a half mile or more nearer to our line than his former line was. Our position is still the same—that is, our line of works and the enemy’s line of works is now near where our outside pickets were before. Our brigade did not suffer much in the engagement of the 5th and we were not in the actions of the 6th and 7th but there was some severe fighting some of the time by other troops. The enemy was repulsed with considerable loss in his main attempt, and except this there was nothing decisive or important in the whole affair. Sgt. D.A. McIntosh, Company I, 26th N.C. Regiment, from Taylorsville, Alexander Co., was killed Feb. 5. He was an excellent young man and much esteemed. Private A. Robinson of the same company from Caldwell Co., was also killed. But few if any others were killed in the brigade, several were wounded—only a few badly. Notwithstanding the general demoralizing influence over the country, I will be more punctual hereafter.
