HARPER'S WEEKLY.

[FEBRUARY 1, 1862.

68

ENCAMPMENT OF CAPTAIN PATTERSON'S CAVALRY SCOUTS, NEAR HANCOCK, MARYLAND.-[SKETCHED BY MR. W. W. CHARLES.]

CAVALRY PICKET AT HANCOCK, MARYLAND.

As attention has been lately directed to Hancock, Maryland, by the skirmishes which have recently taken place there between General Jackson, of the rebel army, and our General Lander, we publish on this page a picture of a CAVALRY PICKET at that point, from a sketch by a member of the picket. The artist writes : Captain R. H. Patterson's

 Cavalry Scouts, raised in Pittsburg by Captain R. H. Patterson, has been for the last three months a prominent part of the advanced-guard of the Upper Potomac. Besides acquiring no mean proficiency in cavalry tactics and sabre exercise, they have done much good to the Union cause in picket duty at the principal fordings and crossings on the river between Williamsport and Hancock, in preventing the transmission

of salt and other supplies to the rebels. They have also taken part in several brisk little skirmishes, among which are those at Sir John's Run and Cherry Run. In their scouting parties they have made several important arrests.

GENERAL KELLEY AND STAFF.

WE publish on this page an engraving of GENERAL KELLEY AND STAFF, from a drawing by Mr.

Guril Bott. General Kelley is the gallant Virginian who was the first man in his State to raise a regiment of Union troops, and who was so gravely wounded at the very first battle in Western Virginia. He has since been promoted to a Brigadier-generalship, and has a command at or near Cumberland. Great things are expected of him, as he is known to be a man of remarkable energy and daring.
