they desire to continue their subscriptions, and will send the money at their early convenience we continue to send the Papers; but when we hear nothing from the subscriber we are reluctantly constrained to enforce our rule. Many of our subscribers, therefore (and some of them our best friends), will not receive this number until they attend to the small formality of fowarding $3 to these Headquarters, or notify us that they will do so soon. Please ask your neighbor if he has received his January number, and if he has not tell him about this paragraph. The delay in getting out our last number has necessarily caused delay in this number; but we hope before long to get back to our former custom of issuing the number for each month not later than the 20th of the month before. Volume VIII has been bound. We have a few copies on hand, which we can supply at once, and we should be glad to have prompt orders. Colonel C. C. Flowerree, of the Seventh Virginia infantry, wa

Operations of the cavalry in Mississippi, from January to March, 1864.-report of General S. D. Lee. Headquarters Lee's cavalry, Tuscaloosa, Alabama, April 18th, 1864. Colonel,--The following is submitted as my report of the operations of the cavalry under my command during the recent campaign in Mississippi. During the latter part of January the enemy commenced to concentrate a large force at Vicksburg, bringing large reinforcements from Memphis and above, and evacuating the Mississippi and Central railroad. To oppose this force, Jackson's division was in position as follows: Ross's Texas brigade was guarding the Yazoo river and Mississippi Central railroad, posted at Benton. Starke's Mississippi brigade was at Brownsville, watching the crossings of the Big Black, opposite Vicksburg. Adams's brigade was moved from the vicinity of Natchez to Raymond. About the 28th of January the enemy commenced their demonstrations up Yazoo river with their boats, and moved their c

icles that had been published. General Lee acknowledged the receipt of my letter with enclosures, and thanked me specially for the copy of my report. Again, on the 19th September, 1867, in an article which appeared in the Richmond Dispatch and Petersburg Index in response to a piece claiming that the infantry garrison of Fort Gregg was composed entirely of the Mississippi brigade of Harris, Mahone's division, I made the same statement that I did to Generals Lee and Wilcox. Lastly, in the January No., 1877, of the Southern Historical Society Papers I reiterate my statement, and give copies of the letters of Lieutenants Snow, Craige, Howard and Rigler--all gallant and meritorious young officers. From this it will be readily seen that I did not wait fifteen years in utter silence, and that I and my Lieutenants do not claim for our brigade all the honors of the defence of Fort Gregg. So far from it, we admit that Chew's battery, Walker's supernumerary artillerists, some of Harris's b

al Harris, page 480, says: It is somewhat remarkable that during the long period of fifteen years, when public prints, both foreign and American, as well as many eye-witnesses of the day, have accorded the defence of Battery Gregg to the Mississippians and the gallant Louisiania artillerists, that others who at this late date now come forward and claim all the honors of that occasion, should have remained utterly silent. General Harris refers to General Lane's official report, found in the January number, 1877, of the Southern Historical Society Papers, and on examining that I find it — the report — is dated April 10, 1865, eight days, and not fifteen years, after the battle. The same number has a letter addressed to myself by General Lane on this subject, dated May 20,, 1867, a few days over two years subsequent, and the letters of the four officers of Lane's brigade, before referred to, are dated in June, 1867. And again, General Harris says, on same page: Sufficient for me to

sehoods, which the accused, had they been present, could have exposed in the most summary manner on the spot, but which from the extraordinary and contra-legal method in which they were received, impose the necessity of tedious detail and repetition of rebutting testimony to overthrow so preposterous and stupidly contrived falsehoods. Sandford Conover, examined by Judge Advocate Bingham, swore (see page 5), repeating four different times, in a variety of forms of expression, that late in January and early in February, 1865, and every day in the month of February, he held conversations with Hon. Jacob Thompson at the St. Lawrence hotel, in Montreal, touching the assassination. Let me quote in full his statement of the alleged conversation: Q.--State, if you please, what was said at that time by Mr. Thompson on that subject, in your presence? A.--I had called on Mr. Thompson to make some inquiry about a raid which had been contemplated on Ogdensburg, N. Y., which had failed be

people became impatient at his inaction. They insisted that their representatives should meet, so as to act for them as occasion might require. If Virginia seceded, then to join Maryland to Virginia in one common destiny, for weal or for woe. If the Middle States submitted, then to place Maryland side by side with them in protecting the Gulf States from war. With this view, St. Mary's and Charles counties provided for elections of delegates to a sovereign convention to take place in January. Frederick held a meeting on the 8th, issued an address, calling the convention for the 22d February, and elected delegates to it. The lead was followed, and on the 22d February that body met in Baltimore city, composed of the best men of the State--without regard to old party lines. But its action was trammelled. Hicks was out in another publication, most solemnly avowing his devotion to the South, and his fixed determination never to allow the soil of Maryland to be polluted by the

minus, or the reverse. The cadet ventured to insist that his work was right, as much as a cadet dare insist on anything with old Jack (as the Major was called in cadet parlance). This was offensive to military discipline, and Cadet L----was ordered to his seat, to which he went with a sad heart, fearing he would not only get a low mark on the class-book, but may be he would be reported for disorderly conduct. The class was soon dismissed. The day wore on — a cold, stormy, snowy day in January. About nine o'clock that night, or just after we had gone to our rooms from tatoo, we heard the sentinel call for the corporal of the guard, and very soon an officer came to our room. He called out: L----, old Jack's in the guard-room and wants you. We said: Ah, old fellow you are gone up for arrest. Down the stoop went the cadet, wondering, fearing. As he entered the guardroom there stood old Jack like a grand old Roman, snow on his cloak, his cap, and his beard. The cadet doffed his

soldier consequently felt that should extraordinary circumstances call for his presence at home, there was always a chance of obtaining furlough, and this very consciousness relieved his anxiety and made his long absences much more cheerful. Nothing worthy of narration broke the monotony of winter-quarters, except changes of commanders in the brigades. General Cocke, a high-minded and gallant soldier, a devoted patriot, and a gentleman of cultivation and refinement, committed suicide in January at his home while on sick leave. He and his brigade had performed excellent service at the battle of Bull Run, but his health had failed on the approach of winter, and his mind had become affected, though so slightly, that no apprehensions were entertained of such result. He was a graduate of West Point, of the class of 1832, and served for two years afterward in the Second United States Artillery. After his death his brigade was commanded by Colonel R. E. Withers, the Senior Colonel pre
