READING THE WAR BULLETINS IN BROADWAY, NEW YORK.

VIRGINIA MOUNTAINEERS.

WE publish on this page a picture representing a group of VIRGINIA MOUNTAINEERS. The artist

to whom we are indebted for the sketch thus describes it :

I send you a sketch made up from separate drawings taken from life, and which may be relied on as a fair

specimen of the Virginia mountaineers. The Blue Ridge at this time swarm with these men, acting as mounted rifles and sharp-shooters. They are all large, few being under six feet high, of powerful muscular build, and from a continuous, active life in the open air, are inured to all

sorts of hardships. Their dress is both picturesque and comfortable, being composed of a mixture of homespun and deerskin, which, together with a coonskin cap, imparts a somewhat savage expression to their bronzed countenances.

THE SECESSIONIST ARMY-IRREGULAR RIFLEMEN OF THE ALLEGHANIES, VIRGINIA.
