		In the death of Brig.-Gen Alex.
Hays on Thursday, the country has sustained an irre-
parable loss.  Knowing nothing akin to fear, his intre-
pidity to battle was never exceeded by any hero, ancient
or modern.  He died beneath the Stars and Stripes, and
under a streamer attached, bearing the inscription,
�My God and my Country.�

Principal Landing and Road to Yorktown, Gloucester

  Col. Alexander Hays, of
	the 63rd Penn.
(Killed May 12, 1864.)

  Col. Riley, of the 40th
