Staunton Light Infantry 63 Years Ago. We have found among the papers of the fi st editor of the Spectator the roll of the Staunton Light Infantry, bearing date January, 1840 Kenton . Harper, captain. It is interesting to . see how many of the young men of 63 years ago from Staunton, were, 21 years afterwards, brave soldiers in the war between tbe States or distinguished distinguished in political and civil life subsequently. subsequently. On this roll some of the old men of today will recognize their fathers, others their grandfathers, and other relatives. It is curious to note that in the military compauies tben there were in eacb, two Ist lieutenants aod two 2d lieutenants. The roll of officers for 1841, also before us, shows that M, G. Harman had been promoted from the ranks to 3d sergeant. Our esteem ed fellow townsman, Mr. Harman J Lushbaugb, is the only surviving member of the company, so far as we are aware of.
