ite with those already in arms, in repelling the foe, believing, he said, that thereby we will compel the Yankees, in less than twelve months, to petition us for peace upon our own terms. Davis appears to have spoken with much folly and arrogance. He denounced the President as His Majesty, Abraham the First, and said that before the campaign was over, he and Seward might find they had been speaking to their masters, when demanding unconditional submission. --A Rebel War Clerk's Diary, Feb. 7, 1865. The meeting passed resolutions spurning with indignation the terms offered by the President, as a gross insult and premeditated indignity to the people of the Confederate States. And at a great war-meeting held on the 9th, at which R. M. T. Hunter presided, it was resolved they would never lay down their arms until their independence was won. They expressed a belief that their resources were sufficient for the purpose, and they invoked the people, in the name of the holiest of all cause

al Bragg. I also found Lieutenant Dunn, of General Grant's staff, awaiting me, with the general's letter of February 7th, covering instructions to Generals Schofield and Thomas; and his letter of March 16th, in answer to mine of the 12th, from Fayetteville. These are all given here to explain the full reasons for the events of the war then in progress, with two or three letters from myself, to fill out the picture. headquarters armies of the United States, City Point, Virginia, February 7, 1865. Major-General W. T. Sherman, commanding Military Division of the Mississippi. General: Without much expectation of it reaching you in time to be of any service, I have mailed to you copies of instructions to Schofield and Thomas. I had informed Schofield by telegraph of the departure of Mahone's division, south from the Petersburg front. These troops marched down the Weldon road, and, as they apparently went without baggage, it is doubtful whether they have not returned. I was ab
showed them to be eighty or ninety miles above us. On our way up, owing to the very strong current caused by the freshet, and the many and very sharp turns in the river, we were occasionally swept in among the trees on the river-bank, getting some scratches, but nothing of a serious nature. I am, Admiral, very respectfully, your obedient servant, S. B. Luce, Lieutenant Commander. To Rear-Admiral John A. Dahlgren, Commanding S. A. B. Squadron. Headquarters in the field, Lowry's, February 7, 1865. Telegram in cipher. Rear-Admiral J. A. Dahlgren, off Charleston, S. C.: We are on the South-Carolina road, at Midway, and will break fifty miles from Edisto toward Augusta, and then cross toward Columbia. Weather is bad, and country full of water. I have ordered Foster to move Hatch up to the Edisto, about Jacksonboro and Willtown; also, to make the lodgment about Bull's Bay. Watch Charleston close. I think Jeff Davis will order it to be abandoned, lest he lose its garriso

e Department of Henrico, which is the county in which Richmond is situated, and was also provost-marshal-general of Richmond, where his strictness created considerable feeling against him. In 1864, after the largest number of enlisted men had been transferred to Andersonville and many of the officers to Macon, he was placed in charge of all the prisons in Alabama and Georgia. Finally, November 21, 1864, he was made commissary-general of prisoners east of the Mississippi River. He died February 7, 1865, it is said from disease contracted while visiting the prison stockade at Florence. General Winder's character has been the subject of much dispute. To the last, President Davis, Secretary Seddon, and Adjutant Cooper declared that he was a much-maligned man. He was set to perform a task made impossible by the inadequacy of supplies of men, food, clothing, and medicines.

Washington Custis Lee (U. S.M. A. 1854) was born at Fortress Monroe, Virginia, September 16, 1832, and was the eldest son of General Robert E. Lee. Upon graduation from the United States Military Academy he joined the corps of engineers, in which he served until May 2, 1861, when he resigned to enter the Confederate Army. The greater part of his service was as aide to President Jefferson Davis. He was appointed major-general serving with the volunteer troops with temporary rank on February 7, 1865, the commission dating from October 20, 1864. On the same date he was also made full major-general. He was captured at Sailor's Creek, April 6, 1865, and was paroled six days later, which parole was extended until April 23, 1865. In addition to serving as aide to President Davis, General Lee was in command of military forces in the city of Richmond. In the latter part of the war he commanded a division of Ewell's corps, and it was at this time that his division was captured along wi
