s had been sent to General Foster. U. S. Grant, Lieutenant General. The following from the official statistics of prisoners on both sides is of particular interest: *** Whole number of Federals in Confederate prisons270,000 Number of Confederates in Northern prisons220,000 ——— Excess of Federal prisoners50,000 Confederates died in Northern prisons26,436 Federals died in Southern prisons22,570 ——— Excess of Confederate deaths3,866 Thus the death rate of Confederates in Northern prisons was over 12 per cent., while that of Federal prisoners in Southern prisons was under 9 per cent. The Northern official record with regard to the treatment and exchange of prisoners in the war of 1861-65 was shameful, and the murder of Captain Wirz to divert public attention from the real authors of the sufferings of the prisoners on both sides was one of the greatest atrocities of modern times.

d seen his last on earth. His beautiful bay mare stood near him, and the colors of our old regiment were furled and leaning against a tree never again to be unfurled. I do not remember who was with him, but I think it was his brother. I knew he was dying; my heart sunk within me when he said to me,Moffett, it is hard to die now just as the war is over. But it was his fate. I think the colors fell into the hands of the enemy, as I never heard of them afterward. In due time those of us who were left got home, many and many changes since the surrender that Sunday morning, April 10, 1865. But those who were there will never forget it and never ought to. Then after the dark days of reconstruction we must be good fellows down South to have stood it all. But we did, and when the next war came our Fitzhugh Lee and Wheeler and a host of others joined the lines again to fight for the flag we fought from 1861 to 1865. Yours truly, W. L. Moffett, Private in Co. D., 14th Va. Cavalry.

The above accounts read like a page from the history of the days of the ill-fated Southern Confederacy of 1861-65. At the date of the assembling of the Convention (1788) the State of Kentucky was an integral part of the Old Domini the distant horizon that swept away every semblance of sovereignty and that desolated the Southern States in the crime of 1861-65? Did he, in his mind's eye, see the black cohorts, led by our Northern brethren (?) committing, during Reconstruction clusions aimed at, disloyal to the Lost Cause, false to the memories of the past, in forgetfulness of the trying period of 1861-65?

chmanipulator, Henry S. Foote, who ran on the Union ticket. But he remained a power in politics, and was especially active in the election of President Pierce, who made him Secretary of War in March, 1853. At the close of his term in the Cabinet he was again elected to the Senate, and again became the leader of the ultra Southern Party. It was at this time that he made his famous Faneuil Hall speech on the rights of the States and the powers of the Central Government. Then, in January, of 1861, Jefferson Davis made his farewell speech in the Senate, withdrew from that body and went to Mississippi to carry his home people into the incubating Confederacy. At the birth of the new nation, he was popularly accepted as its chief. There were—as was inevitable in an infant coalition of the disjecta membra of an old one—cliques cabals and office greed. At Montgomery, other candidates were spoken of. Alexander H. Stephens was often mentioned; Toombs was talked of, and what was known as

acting assistant surgeons (forty-five to fifty), each in charge of several wards or buildings, and subject to surgeons of divisions, and all subject to Surgeon James B. McCaw, in charge of executive head. With natural drainage, the best conceivable on the east, south and west; good water supply; five large ice houses; Russian bath house; cleanliness and excellent system of removal of wastes, the best treatment, comforts and result in a military hospital in times of war were secured. In 1861 there was on what is now known as Chimborazo Park or Hill one house, owned by a Richard Laughton, and a small office building. For the purpose of making the hospital an independent institution, the secretary of war made Chimborazo hospital an army post, and Dr. McCaw was made commandant; an officer and thirty men were stationed there, and everything conducted selon de regles. As the commandant, Surgeon McCaw was not in the regular army of the Confederacy, the surgeon-general said: I do

ere present in large numgers. The ceremonies of the day possessed peculiar interest because the memory of the Petersburg soldiers who fell in battle in the War of 1861-65 was to be especially commemorated. The program of exercises was simple, but very beautiful. The ladies of the Memorial Association met in the Mechanics' Haltask, which has been theirs for so many years, of preserving the memory of the soldiers who wore the gray and who gave their lives during the momentous conflict of 1861-65. Now, more than forty years since the association was organized, we come once more to pay our annual tribute of love and veneration to the soldier dead, who t 8 inches long by 1. foot 8 inches wide, and bears the following inscription: Erected by the L.

In these incorporators are many of the leaders on each side of the war of 18861-5, such as ernor Spotswood, the Tubal Cain of America; it was the playground of George Washington, and here is the ashes of his venerated mother. Not only do the memories of 1861-65 here abide, but as a Revolutionary war spot it will ever be hallowed by all Americans. The Free Lance, in view of the thirteen colonies, has no superstition s not believe that it will call in vain on the Dispatch to yield Richmond's claims for the present, at least, and give old Fredericksburg, which, during the war of 1861-65, stood as a bulwark for Richmond, its best help at this time, to the end that the Fredericksburg, Chancellorsville, Wilderness, and Spotyslvania Courthouse batt

The Conrad boys in the Confederate service. Mr. Robert Y. Conrad, of Winchester, was one of the leading lawyers in Virginia. He was a member of the Virginia Convention of 1861 and chairman of the Committee of Federal Relations. He had six sons.

Conrad, assistant surgeon United States Navy; resigned in 186; served in Confederate States Navy, fleet surgeon for Admiral Buchanan at the battle of Mobile Bay.
