Stage-coaches, Vehicles so called from the stages or inns at which the coaches stopped to refresh and change horses. The custom of running stage-coaches in England was introduced from the Continent, but in what year the first stage ran is not known, probably in the latter part of the sixteenth or early in the seventeenth century. Introduced into Scotland in 1610 by Henry Anderson, running between Edinburgh and Leith. In 1659 the Coventry coach is referred to, and in 1661 the Oxford stagecoach. By the middle of the eighteenth century the stagecoach was in extensive use. In 1757 the London and Manchester stage-coach made the trip, 187 miles, in three days regularly, afterwards Travelling by stage coach. reduced to nineteen hours, and the London and Edinburgh stage-coach ultimately made the distance between these cities, 400 miles, in forty hours, including all stops, etc., the roads being excellent, the coaches and service admirable, and the number of horses equal to the numb

Star of the West, A steam merchantman, sent to relieve Major Anderson in Fort Sumter. It having been resolved, on the advice of Secretary Holt and General Scott, to send troops to reinforce the garrison at Fort Sumter, orders were given for the United States steam-frigate Brooklyn—the only war-ship available then— to be in readiness to sail from Norfolk at a moment's notice. This order Jacob Thompson, Secretary of the Interior, revealed to the early Confederate leaders. Virginians were rward, after seventeen shots had been fired by the insurgents, and returned to New York, Jan. 12. This firing on the flag of the United States was the first overt act of war that marked the inauguration of the great Civil War of 1861-65. Had Major Anderson, in Sumter, then known that loyal men were in power in his government, he would have opened the great guns of the fortress, and the Star of the West and her precious freight would not have been driven to sea. There was great exultation in

A defensive work in the harbor of Charleston, S. C. Major Anderson had long urged his government, but in vain, to strengt of the garrison being before Fort Johnson, and concluded Anderson was going there also with his troops. Then three signal ating from the flag-staff of Sumter. The garrison wanted Anderson to hoist it at dawn. He would not do it until his chaplad when he ceased an impressive Amen fell from many lips. Anderson then hoisted the flag to the head of the staff. It was gk up Hail Columbia! Governor Pickens sent a message to Anderson demanding his immediate withdrawal from Fort Sumter. Thethe solemn pledges of the government had been violated by Anderson, and he demanded of the President permission to withdraw d; a disruption of the cabinet followed. Floyd fled; and Anderson received (Dec. 31) from Secretary of War Holt —a Kentuckid done. Earlier than this words of approval had reached Anderson.

A vehicle traveling on a regular route for carrying passengers. Stage-coach. A vehicle for passengers running on a regular route. Stage-coaches appear to have been introduced into Britain by Henry Anderson, who, about 1610, brought them from Stralsund, Pomerania, and was granted a patent for the privilege of running them between Edinburgh and Leith. Some fourteen or fifteen years afterward they had become known in England. In 1659 the Coventry coach is referred to, and in 1661 the Oxford coach, which took two days to reach London (55 miles). In 1669 an Oxford coach ran from London to Oxford in thirteen hours, in summer. In 1742, however, the Oxford stage was still two days on the road.

ught and won; the 21st Virginia regiment has written its name high on the scroll of honor—but at what a cost! They went into battle with two hundred and eighty-four men. Thirty-nine of them lay dead on the field and eighty-four are wounded; many of these men are shot in several places. Old F Company of Richmond has Captain Morgan killed; he was shot through the body by a piece of shell. He was a splendid soldier and the best posted on military matters of any man I knew during the war. Henry Anderson, Joe Nunnally, John Powell, Wm. Pollard, were killed, and Roswell Lindsay, after bayoneting a Yankee, was killed also; Bob Gilliam was shot through the leg, Clarence Redd through both wrists, Ned Tompkins in arm and body, Porter Wren through arm, Harrison Watkins through body, Clarence E. Taylor through hip. The other regiments lose as badly as we do, and nearly half of Jackson's loss in the battle is in the Second brigade. Amongst the killed is Brigadier-General Charles S. Winder, o
