g our whole front, under Lieutenant Crowell of the Twenty-eighth, with instructions not to fire until the enemy got close upon him, and to fall back gradually when he saw the main line retiring towards the river. The Eighteenth regiment, under Col. Barry, was deployed to the right as skirmishers, and Colonel Avery had supervision of the right wing, so as to enable me to be apprised of the movements of the enemy more readily. As soon as the other brigades withdrew a large force moved to our rigventh, refers to his heavy loss as sufficient evidence of the gallantry of his command. The loss of such officers as Lieutenants D)ohertv, Royster, Jno. P. Elms, and W. N. Michle, who nobly discharged their duties, will be seriously felt. Colonel Barry, of the Eighteenth, is proud of his command, which acted throughout the campaign in a manner satisfactory to him and creditable to themselves. Colonel Lowe, of the Twenty-eight, was wounded and had to leave, but Lieutenant-Colonel Speer sp

al staff of only five officers, none of them above the rank of major. These were Major McCoy, aid-de-camp; Captain Audenried, aid-de-camp; Major Hitchcock, assistant. adjutant-general; Captain Dayton, aid-de-camp, and Captain Nichols, aid-de-camp. Attached to his Headquarters, says Brevet-Major G. W. Nichols, in his Story of the Great March, but not technically members of his staff, were the chiefs of the separate departments for the Military Division of the Mississippi. These were General Barry, chief of artillery; Lieutenant-Colonel Ewing, inspector-general; Captain Poe, chief of engineers; Captain Baylor, chief of ordnance; Dr. Moore, chief medical director; Colonel Beckwith, chief of the commissary department; and Captain Bachtal, chief of the signal corps. The army had moved, with twenty days provision of bread, forty days of beef, coffees, and sugar, and three of forage in their wagons, with instructions to each subordinate commander to live off the country, and save t
n their natural advancement. Separated by a river alone, they seem to have been purposely and providentially designed to exhibit in their future histories, the difference which naturally results from a country free, and a country afflicted with the curse of slavery. The same may be said of the two States of Missouri and Illinois. Surely this is satisfactory testimony? Thomas J. Randolph spoke next, and in the same strain as the preceding speakers. Is slavery a curse? Marshall, Barry, Randolph, Faulkner, and Chandler answer in the affirmative; and thus replies Mr. James McDowell, junior, the delegate from Rockbridge: Slavery a Leprosy. Sir, if our ancestors had exerted the firmness, which, under greater obligations we ourselves are called on to exert, Virginia would not, at this day, have been mourning over the legacy of weakness, and of sorrow that has been left her; she would not have been thrust down — down — in a still lowering relation to the subordinate post
inion, it becomes our duty to withdraw from this Convention. We beg, Sir, to communicate this fact through you, and to assure the Convention that we do so in no spirit of anger, but under a sense of imperative obligation, properly appreciating its responsibilities and cheerfully submitting to its consequences. The Alabama delegation, which included ex-Gov. John A. Winston, Wm. L. Yancey, Reuben Chapman, ex-M. C., and other prominent citizens, thereupon withdrew from the Convention. Mr. Barry, of Mississippi, next announced the withdrawal of the entire Mississippi delegation. Mr. Glenn, of Mississippi, stated the grounds of such withdrawal, as follows: Sir, at Cincinnati we adopted a Platform on which we all agreed. Now answer me, ye men of the North, of the East, of the South, and of the West, what was the construction placed upon that Platform in different sections of the Union? You at the West said it meant one thing; we of the South said it meant another. Either we
unsustained by facts. For between the panic-stricken fugitives and the victors were not merely the reserve (5th) division, which remained in position, and had not fired a shot, but the 1st (Tyler's) division forming our left, which had suffered little loss, but had signally repulsed the demonstration made upon it at the close of the fight; while the better portion of our beaten right and center, including the regular infantry and cavalry, still stood its ground and sternly faced the foe. Maj. Barry, our Chief of Artillery in the battle, in his official report, after noticing the loss of ten of his guns at the close, through the flight of their supporting infantry, says: The army having retired upon Centerville, I was ordered by Gen. McDowell in person, to p<*>st the artillery in position to cover the retreat. The batteries of Hunt, Ayres, Tidball, Edwards, Green, and the New-York 8th regiment, (the latter served by volunteers from Wilcox's brigade,) 20 pieces in all, were at

so wanted there should be an explicit declaration in favor of slavery in the platform. When the platform was adopted the South Carolina delegation, headed by Governor Barry, seceded from the convention in a body, so that the State might not be bound by the action of the convention, and we adjourned for dinner. This performancen consequences in the near future. War appeared to me inevitable. An incident will show how strongly I was impressed. I took dinner at the Mills House with Governor Barry of the South Carolina delegation, at his invitation, given a day or two before. After dinner we were pacing up and down the veranda of the Mills House, not in a very talkative mood, and I cast my eye over the building, counting its stories and looking at its extent. Barry, to rally me, said: Why, Butler, what are you examining this building so critically for? Are you thinking of coming down here and setting up as a tavern-keeper? Secession Hall, Charleston, S.

cers of Mississippi's fighting ninth. In this long-lost Confederate photograph we see vividly the simple accoutrements which characterized many of the Southern regiments during the war. These men of Company B of the Ninth Mississippi enlisted as the Home Guards of Marshall County, and were mustered into the State service at Holly Springs, February 16, 1861. Their checked trousers and workday shirts are typical of the simple equipment each man furnished for himself. The boots worn by Colonel Barry, at the right, were good enough for the average Confederate soldier to go through fire to obtain later on in the war. Lacking in the regalia of warfare, the Ninth Mississippi made a glorious record for itself in Chalmers' Brigade at Shiloh, where it lost its gallant Colonel, William A. Rankin. Never, said General Bragg, were troops and commander more worthy of each other and their State. the Southerners to hold their own against the ever increasing, well-fed and well-supplied forces o
d Cornwallis. The Count de Paris wrote a very comprehensive and impartial history of the war, and in 1890 revisited America and gathered together some 200 or more surviving officers of the Army of the Potomac at a dinner in the old Hotel Plaza, New York City. Not half the veterans that were his guests more than two decades ago are still alive, and the Duc himself joined the majority in 1894. Yorktown eighty years after Here are some English and other foreign military officers with General Barry and some of his staff before Yorktown in May, 1862. European military opinion was at first indifferent to the importance of the conflict as a school of war. The more progressive, nevertheless, realized that much was to be learned from it. The railroad and the telegraph were two untried elements in strategy. The ironclad gunboat and ram introduced serious complications in naval warfare. At first the influence of Napoleon I was manifest in the field, but as the struggle proceeded both a
