The New York World has published a series ,
of interesting articles giving the chametir and,
achievements of various rebel leaders. They are
writtelkby one, of Lee's late staff officers, and.
Must be accepted as 'coming from one of the
stronges't rebel proclivities. One of his last con
tributions is on the übiquitous Moseby, the great
guerilla chief of the Virginia border—the man
who periled the safety of every heu-roost, horse
stable, money-till, grocer; and dry goods store,
corn-crib and larder within his range, and who
delighted in stoppinkrailroad trains and robbing
every passenger indiscriminately, regardless of
age, io‘x or circumstances, of all monies, watches,
jewel:, and other valuables. Of thus, accomplished
free-beoter the Worlds correspondent thus graph
ically and kindly-writes, and we give it as a mat
ter of general interest to our readers, who know
ing Moseby well will appreciate his history:
This man, figuring in the popular eye as a rut=
fiat) and low adventurer, was born and bred, and
is. in a manner, a gentleman. His family is tim
id high standing and intelligence in Virginia. and
he was educated at the University of Virginia.
v. here he studied the h.w. He commenced the
practice, married, and would probably have pass
ed Omagh life as a "county court lawyer - had
not the war taken place. When,Virginia seceded
he imitated other )oung men, and embarked in
the struggle as ze private in a regiment of cavalry.
Here he exhibited eiu auk and act - ix itY, and ey 111-
th:illy became Ist lieutenant and adjutant. 'When
the miserable "reorganization" sy stem of the Con
federate States Government went into operation
in the spring of 1c11.2, and the men were allowed
to select their officers, Moseby—never an easy or
.indulgent officer—was thrown out, and again be
came a private. lie returned to the ranks; but
his energy and activity had been frequently exhi
bited. and Gen. Stuart, who possessed a rernark
able talent for discovering conspieutms military
merit of any sort in obscure persons, speedily sent
for him. and from that time employed him as a
scout or partisan. It is proper to warn the rea
der here that a Walt is not a spy - . Noseby's duty
I-ea,tttate the real,l of cnim.try occupied
by the FederaffOrceg, either alone or in commaiTa
of a small detachment of cavalry; and by hover
ing in the woods around the Union camps, inter
rogating citizens, or capturing _picketg or strag
glers.acquire information of the enemy's numbers,
position, or designs If this information could Ie
obtained without a collission, all the better—but
ii necessary. it was the duty and the habit of the
scouts to attack, or when attacked, hold their
ground as long as possible. lii other words, there
war inaugurated in the country occupied by the
Federal forces a regular system of partisan war
hire. tbe object of which was to harass the invad
ing tome, and in every way impair its 'llicieucy.
It was at this time that I first saw MOseby, and
his appearance was wholly uhdistimmished., Ile
was thin, wiry, and, I should say, aliMit five feet
nine or.b-n inches in height. A slight stoop in
the,neek was not ungraceful. The chin was car
ried well forward; the lips were thin and wore a
somewhat satirical smile; the eyes, under the
brown felt hat - were keen, sparkling, and roVed
curiously from side to side. He wore a grey uni
form, with arms but two revolvers in his belt;
the sabre was' no favorite with him. His voice
was low, and a smile was often on his lips. He
rarely sat still ten minutes. Such was his appear
ance at that time. .No one would have been
struck with anything noticeable in him except
the eyes These flashed at times; it) a way which
might have' indliced the opinion that there was
something in the man, if it only had an opportu
nity to "come out."
i am not aware that he gained any reputation
in the campaign of ISW. Ile was considered,
hoiveser, by General Stuart, an excellent scout
find partisan: and the General oriee related to the
present writer, with great glee, the manner in
ui hich MoSeby had taken nine men, deployed them
over several hundred yards, and advanced, firing
steadily upon a whole brigade of Federal eavalry,
which hastily retired, tinder the impression that
the attacking force was.heavy. Such things were
common with Moseby, who seemed to enjoy them
greatly; but in the spring of ISe2 the tables were
turned upon the partisan. General Stuart sent
him from the Chick:Monthly to carry a confiden
tial message to Gen. Jackson, then in the valley.
Ile was resting at one of the wayside stations
on the Central Railroad. while his horse was feed
ing. when a detachnient of Federal cavalry sur
prised and raptured him—making prize also of a
private note trout Stuart to Jackson, and a copy
of Napoleon's "Maxims," accompanying it
was carried to the Old Capitol, but was
soon exchanged; and chancing to discover on his
route down the bay that General Burnside was
going soon to reinforce General Pope in Culpep
per, he hastened, on his arrival, with that impor
tant intortuation to General Lee, who telegraphed
it, doubtless, to General Jackson at Gordonsville.
It - is probable that the battle of Cederlinn, where
General Pope was defeated, was fought by. Jack
•oll in consequentfe of this information.
'My object, however, it not to write a biography
of Cillonel Moseby. It is fortunate that such is
not my design: for a career of wonderful activity
extending over about three .}ears could not be
condensed into a brief paper. I shall speak of
but one or two other incidents in his career—and
one shall be his .orprise of Brigadier General
Stoughton 'at. Fatrnix Court House in the winter
of lf:tit2. This tam excited unbounded indigna
tion on the part of many-excellent people. Let
us see if it was not a legitimate partisan opera
tion. It was in_Nevember,l believe, that Mose
by received the information leading to his move
ment. The Federal forces at that time occupied
the region betweettXredericksburg and Alexan
dria, and as General Stuart's activity and energy
were just-causes of solicitude, a strong body of in
!Mar), cavalry, and artillery was posted in the
neighborhood of Fairfax Court - House and Cen
treville. Colonel Wyndham wits in command of
the cavalry , and acting Brigagitli-General Stough
ton, a young officer I runt West font; commun
. tied the whole district. with his headquarters - al
the small Bingo of Fairfax. Moseby formed the
design of capturing General Stoughton, Colonel
Wyndham, Colonel Johnson, anti other officers;
and sent =Teats to the neighborhood to ascertain
the li re,. there. They brought word that a strong
body of infantry and artillery was at Centres tile;
Colonel Wyndham's brigade of cavalry at Ger
mantown, a mile front Fairfax; and towards the
railroad station another. brigade .of infautry.—
Fairfax thus appeared to be inclosed within a
coidoh or alarms, rendering it wholly - imPossi
ble_seven to
,approach it. Those who know the
ground, as Many of my readers doubtless do, will
easily understand how desperate the undertaking
appeared of penetrating to the town. and safely
carrying oil' the Federal commandant. It was
one of those schem e s, however, whose veryhold
nets is apt to cause them to succeed. Men rare
ly guard against dangers which they do not dream
it impossible can threaten them. Moseby.doubt
leas hated his calculations upon this fad at any
rate,he decided upon the movement. and with
VOL. 7Q;... WHOLE NO. 3,727.
' I
twenty-ninequen set out- one dirk and! -drizzling
November night for the scene of operations. -
The partyliad to steal off with their captures,
if any were made, orcut their ray through, and
on. that black night no unifonni was discernible.
Moseby approached Germantown by the Little
River turnpike, but fearing Wyndham's cavalry,
obligued to the right, and took to the woods skir
ling the Warrenton road. -Centreville was thus,
with its garrison, on his right and rear, German
town on his left, and Fairfax, winged with infant..
ry camps, in his front. It was now raining heav
ily, and the night was like pitch. , , - The party ad
vanced by bridle paths through the woods, thus
avoiding the pickets on the main avenues of ap.
proach, and the incessant patter of the rain
drowned the hoofstrokes of the horses.
A mile from Fairfax thegleam of tents greeted
them, in front, and finding the approaches barred-
in that direction, they silently obliqaed to the
right again, crossed the Warrenton road, andgra
dually drew near the town on the southern side. I
Again the wet and rain served them. Their ad-
ranee was undiscovered, and at last they were
close upon the place. An infantry picketwas the
only obstacle, and this was soon removed. The
sleepy vidette found a pistol at his breast, and the
picket was compelled to surrender without firing
a shot. The way was then clear, and Moseby
entered the town at a gallop. His object was to
capture the Federal officers known to be in the
place, burn the public stores and carry off as
many horses as possible
His party. was accordingly-divided for these
purposes, and Moseby himself proceeded to Gen.
Stoughton's residence. It was afterwards said
that a young lady of the place, Miss Ford, tairt
plied him with infomiatien, tend led him, person
alty to the house. This, Col. Moseby stated to
the present writer, was entirely a mistake; he
received information neither from Miss Ford nor
any one else except his own scouts—nor did any
one accompany hitriln his visit to Gen. Stough
ton. He found an orderly at the deer, who was
taken charge of by one of hisiown men, and then
mounted to the General's bedchamber, the occu
pant of %tieh was fast asleep. - At Moseby's un
ceremonious " Get up, General, and come with
me !" the sleeper started erect, and demanded,
"Do you know who I am, sir I" apparently indig
nant at such want of ceremony. "Do you know
Moseby, General?" was the reply. "Yes," was
the eager response, " have you got the ras
cal?' " No, but he has got you." And to the
startled " What does this mean, sir ?" of Gen.
Stoughton, Moseby replied, "It means that Gen.
Stuart's cavalry are in possession of the court
house, sir, and that you are my prisoner." This
disagreeble state of affairs slowly dawned upon
the aroused sleeper, and he soon found himself
dressed, mounted, and ready to set oat—a pris
oner. Several staff officers had also been cap
tured, and a considerable number of horses.—
Cols. Wyndham and Johnson eluded the search
for them. Deciding not to bum the public stores
which were in the houses, Moseby then mounted
all his prisoners—some thirty-five, I believe, in
number, including about half-a-dozen officers—
cautimisly retracing his steps, passing over the
very same gronnd, and stealing along, about dawn,
under the mufzles of the guns in the works at
Centreville. so close that the sentinel hailed the
party, swam Cub run, struck - southward, and at
sunrise was safe beyond purlint.
The skill and boldness exfiibited in the concep
tion and execution of this raid conferred upon
Moseby just fame as a partisan officer; and the
regular organization of hiscommand commenced.
He was made captain, then major, then lieuten
ant-colonel, and colonel, as his force and- his ope
rations increased. From the solitary scout, or
- partisan operating with a smell squad, he
had grown to be an officer of rank and distinc
tion, intrusted with important duties,and event
ually with the guardianshipof the whole extent of
Country north of the Rappahannock, and east of
the Blue Ridge. The people of the region speak
of it with a laugh, as " Moseby's Confederacy,"
and the name will probably adhere to it, in the
popular mind,for many years to come. Let us
pass ttrthestgatter days when" Colonel" Moseby
gave the Federal ,_force se.,mlichirmble...)
nroosed - so much Inffigfififfon in - General Custer,
General Sheridan, and others, whose men he cap
tured, and whose convoys he so frequently cut off
and destroyed.
Moseby was born to be a partisan leader, and
as such was probably greater than any other who
took part in the war. He had by nature all the
qualities which make the accomplished ranger;
nothing could daunt him . ; his activity of mind and
body—call it, if you choose, restless eternal love
of movement—was something wonderful; and that
- untiring energy which in the secret of half the
great successes of history, drove him incessantly
to plan, to scheme, to conceive, and to execute.
He could not rest when there was anything to
do, and scouted for his amusement, charging pick
ets so/us by way of sport. On dark and rainy
nights, when other men aim at being comfortably
housed, Moseby liked to be aiming with a detach
ment of his men to surprise and attack some Fed
eral camp, or to "run in" some picket, and occa
sion consternation, if not inflict injury.
The peculiar feature of his command was that
the men occupied no stated camp, and, in fact,
were never kept together, except on an expedi
tion. They were scattered throughout the coun
try, especially among the small farm houses in the
spurs of the -Blue Ridge;- and-here they lived the
merriest lives imaginable. They were subjected
to none of the hardships and privations of regular
soldiers. Their horses ;were in comfortable sta
bles or ranged freely over excellent pastures; the
men lived with their families, slept in beds, and
had nothing to do with "rations" of hard bread
and bacon. Milk, butter, and all the household
luxuries of peace were at their command; and
not until their chief summoned' them did they
buckle on their arms and get totorse. - -
While they were thus living on the fat of the
land, MoseVy was perhaps scouting off on his pri
vate account somewhere down towards Manassas,
.11exandria, or Leesburg. If his excursions re
vealed an opening for sucessU operations, he
sent off a well mounted courier,'who travelled ra
pidly to the first nest of rangers; thence a fresh
courier carried the summons elsewhere; and in a
few hours twenty, thirty, or fifty men, excellently
mounted, made their - appearance at the ,prescrib
ed rendezvous. The man tvho disregarded of eva
ded the second summons to a raid was summarily
dealt with; he received a note for delivery to Gen.
Stuart, and on reaching the cavalry headquarters
iv as directed to return to the company in the reg
ular service from which he bad been transferred.
This seldom happened, however. The men
were all anxious to go upon raids, to share the
rich spoils; and were prompt at the rendezvous.
Once' assembled, the rangers fell into column,
Jloseby said "Cumo on;* and the party set for
ward upon the appointed task—to surprise some
camp, capture an army train, or ambush some
detached party of Federal cavalry on a foraging
expedition. •
, Such a life is attractive to the imagination, and
the, men came to have a passion for it. - But it is
a dangerous service. It may with propriety be
regarded as a trial of wits between the opposing
commanders. - The great praise of Mosebi waa
that his superior activity, and g ood judg
ment gave him almost uninterrupted success, and
invariably saved him 'from capture. An attack
upon Col. Cole, of the Maryland cavalry, near
