given the names of nearly ten thousand noted persons of ancient and modern times, with a brief statement of the dates of their birth and death, their nationality, profession, etc. This is designed for purposes of ready reference, to answer the questions which often arise as to when and where certain persons lived, and the character of their achievements. It contains many names of persons who are still living, and the pronunciation of each name is given. Scribner and St. Nicholas for February fully maintain their high character. A song for the South.--From Ludden & Bates' Southern Music House, Savannah, Ga., we receive a splendid song and chorus entitled The Southern soldier boy, with words by Father Ryan and music by W. Ludden, which we can commend as a grand song that will be welcomed wherever the Southern soldier boys' memory is held dear. The poet priest's touching words are here set by a master hand to a tender melody, and fittingly dedicated to the Southern mothers

, 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 say that what has appeared heretofore has not been printed by any one connected with the brigade, or at their instance; and singularly there has been a great unanimity on the part of foe, friend and stranger in giving the credit of that defence to Harris's brigade. If we examine the February number of the Southern Historical Society Papers, referred to by General Harris as containing A soldier's Story of the war, by Napier Bartlett, giving an account of the defence of Battery Gregg, we will find, pages 84-5, as follows: The part taken in defence of Gregg by the Mississippians is thus described in the Vicksburg Times: Fort Gregg was held by the Twelfth and Sixteenth Mississippi regiment, Harris's brigade, numbering about one hundred and fifty muskets, &c., &c, no reference bein

The concentration before Shiloh-reply to General Ruggles. by Captain W. M. Polk. To the Editor of the Southern Historical Society Papers: Sir,--In the February number of your journal is an article by General Ruggles, purporting to be a reply to one by myself, upon the march to Shiloh. Instead of being a mere reply, however, it contains a good deal of irrelevant matter, an excuse for which it is difficult to find. One is offered though, which I will notice before going further. It seems that the General has reason to assume that Colonel Wm. Preston Johnston and myself conferred very fully in relation to certain statements touching him (General Ruggles) which appear in the Colonel's Life of Albert Sidney Johnston. Permit me to say that the General is mistaken. My connection with the matter is this: Colonel Johnston wrote asking for any information I might have bearing upon the question of the delay in the concentration. In reply I sent him substantially the article over

ter, the High Steward; and Sir Robert de Keith, Great Marischal of Scotland. Professor Fontaine cites a number of authorities, and deserves great credit for the industry he has shown in bringing out these interesting links in the lineage of our great chief, who was in himself the peer of any Lord, or King, or noble civilian the world ever saw. was Lieutenant Meigs, of General Sheridan's staff, killed in fair combat? --The conclusive testimony on this point which we published in our February number was an end to all controversy, and we were not surprised to learn that Quartermaster-General Meigs (with whom we have deeply sympathized as not only losing a gallant son, but believing that he was foully murdered instead of having met a soldier's fate in fair fight) has written to a friend that he is fully satisfied that this is a correct account of the sad affair.

ed 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 because the United States Government had received some intimation of t

left Manassas it never had a tent again. From the 9th of March it was constantly in the field, sometimes with open flies, which answered capitally; but generally with not even those, which was better. The monotony of winter quarters was greatly relieved by a fine library which Mrs. Johnson purchased — partly with money collected by herself and partly with a portion of the Georgia contributions. She was enabled in the same manner to send on a large supply of yarn socks and gloves. In February Companies A and B, twelve-month's men, concluded to re-enlist for the war and take the furlough. This was peculiarly gratifying, as they were the companies first formed, and though only mustered on the 21st of May had been in active service since the 8th and 9th of May, 1861. Company A had served under Colonel Johnson in Baltimore during the week succeeding the 19th of April. Most of the men of these companies re-enlisted and went off on furlough.

Hunton's regiment did not rejoin the brigade from Leesburg until March. Early in February General D. R. Jones was assigned to the command of a Georgia brigade, in General G. W. Smith's division, and General R. H. Anderson, of South Carolina, General R. H. Anderson graduated at West Point, in 1838, and served in the First United States Dragoons until the secession of South Carolina. He was brevetted f
