Work of the Ordnance Bureau of the war Department of the Confederate States, 1861-5. By J. W. Mallet, ex-Lieut. Col. of Artillery and Superintendent of Confederate States Ordnance Laboratories. Pat of the Confederate government having been moved to Richmond, Col. Gorgas was, in the spring of 1861, busily engaged in organizing his work and arranging for the ordnance demands of the large forceschmond, under the able management of Gen. Jos. R. Anderson, were of overshadowing importance. In 1861, the Southern States were almost wholly occupied with agricultural pursuits, and their resources d chief, General Rodes, killed in the following September at Winchester. During the Civil War of 1861, the armament and warlike munitions of the world were very different from and much simpler than tremains to mention but one other phase of the work of ordnance officers in the troublous times of 1861-65—namely, the organizing and drilling of forces for local defense against the enemy, made up of

e did not receive from the Navy Department, to whom it was sent for delivery, until after his disabilities were removed during the administration of President Cleveland. He also received a medal from the St. George's Society, of New York city, composed of British residents of that city, for the same service in search of Sir John Franklin. From 1853 to 1856 he was on the steamer Water Witch; in 1857 and 1858 lighthouse inspector; 1859 flag lieutenant of the Brazilian squadron; in, 1860 and 1861 on the United States frigate Sabine, and of his service on this ship I will quote from a paper written by him for this camp and read to it some time before his death.

ebruary 22, 1883, said: Gen. S. Cooper, Adjutant-General of our Government, told me in Richmond that over 21,000 Marylanders had entered the Southern armies. General Trimble was a man of unquestioned high character and integrity. It must be remembered that the Adjutant-General's office contained the records of all the Confederate armies, including the nativity of all soldiers. General Cooper was Adjutant-General of the United States Army before the war, and, having resigned early in 1861, was given the same position in the Confederate service. This statement, therefore, may be regarded as official. General Trimble further said: General Lee often told me that he had much at heart the separate organization of the Marylanders. They are, he said, unrivaled soldiers, and, if brought together, we may get many other Marylanders to join us. This was attempted in 1863, but it was then too late, as the Marylanders who were serving in other organizations were unwilling to lea

some manner that I was the last soldier of General R. E. Lee's army to leave Richmond, wrote to me for a narrative of the circumstances of my retreat. Colonel Sulivane has written elsewhere: Concerning that retreat from Richmond there has been a curious coincidence of record between Lieutenant-Colonel H. Kyd Douglas, of Hagerstown, Md., and myself. When not quite twenty-three we both left our homes in Maryland and enlisted as private soldiers in the Confederate Army in the spring of 1861. That fall we were both promoted to the staff as first lieutenants and aides-de-camp. In 1864 we were both in the Adjutant-General's Department with the rank of captain on the brigade staff. When our respective generals became major-generals in the early spring of 1865, we became entitled to the rank of lieutenant-colonel, but application was not made for our commissions as such, because we were both recommended to be made brigadier-generals. The order for such commissions was issued by P

th so much vigor as to force Colonel Morrison to send Captain Lawson with a body of men to strengthen the line. I saw Lawson with his brave fellows go out, and nobly did they do their work. The attack was resisted and repulsed, but with much loss to us. Captain Lawson was shot, and as they brought him in our line on a stretcher, I went up to him and said: I am truly sorry to see you are hurt; you made a big fight and saved the line. Looking me full in the face, the glow of battle still there and a smile, said: Oh, I have a furlough for ninety days. He lost his leg, and, of course, never came back to the army. He was one of the gamest little soldiers I ever saw. Always ready for a fight. He had graduated from the V. M. I. in 1861, and died after the war in Maryland, though I do not know the date of his death. Colonel Morrison was also a graduate of the same school. He lost the use of an arm at Sharpsburg, I think, and for the rest of the war commanded his regiment with one arm.

nments, and in our day we see Japan, China, Persia, and even Turkey, adopting constitutions, and giving the people a voice in governing themselves. Who can measure the influence of this country? God is in history; He is leading the nations to the light of liberty, so that His truth may make them free, and in a marvelous way He has used, and is using, our country to enlighten the world. Without the love of liberty, and of the constitutional rights, which fired the hearts of our people in 1861, this country would not have remained. Many were going after other gods! Without the welding together of our people by the fiery trials of war, of reconstruction, of threatened servile domination, we could not have been the conserving power we have been. If this government is still to stand for liberty and freedom, it will be the South which will preserve it, and in the good providence of our God, bringing good out of evil, our sufferings will help to bring a blessing to all people.
