yone; that if his friends made any agreements for him they did so over his expressed direction and without his knowledge. At another time he said that he wanted to give the South, by way of placation, a place in his cabinet; that a fair division of the country entitled the Southern States to a reasonable representation there, and if not interfered with he would make such a distribution as would satisfy all persons interested. He named three persons who would be acceptable to him. They were Botts, of Virginia; Stephens, of Georgia; and Maynard, of Tennessee. He apprehended no such grave danger to the Union as the mass of people supposed would result from the Southern threats, and said he could not in his heart believe that the South designed the overthrow of the Government. This is the extent of my conversation about the cabinet. Thurlow Weed, the veteran in journalism and politics, came out from New York and spent several days with Lincoln. He was not only the representative of
e Second. I expressed the pleasure which I then felt; but as she passed out of the room, and my thoughts again turned to the subject, a superstitious horror came over me, and I said to those around me, This is a fatal honour conferred upon W. R., and I could not get rid of the impression. The Second Regiment has invariably lost its field officers. It is one of the most gallant regiments of the Stonewall Brigade, and has frequently had what is called the post of honour. Colonel Allen, Colonel Botts, Lieutenant-Colonel Lackland, Lieutenant-Colonel Colston, Major Jones, and now Colonel Randolph, have fallen! and Colonel Nadenboush, of the same regiment, has been so mutilated by wounds, as to be obliged to retire from the service. The fleet upon James River has landed about 30,000 or 40,000 troops. One of their gunboats ran upon a torpedo, which blew it to atoms. We repulsed them near Port Walthall. Yesterday they came with a very strong force upon the Petersburg Railroad. Th

., is also mounted upon his injuries. As a Christian, as a consistent man, as an energetic Anglo-American, he is much displeased with the difficulty of enforcing the Fugitive Slave Law in Boston. The conflicts between the State and Federal authorities have rasped the more delicate parts of his nature. Although not a medical man, he volunteers the opinion that, as a nation we have been poisoned. The Republican party has grown to colossal proportions. The F. S. L. cannot be executed — not Botts, nor Yancey, nor Wise could, as President, execute it. The crimes of the North are manifold. It is guilty of a population of twenty millions, while the South has but twelve. In respect of land, it is equally reprehensible--seventy-five acres to a man, while the South has but forty-five. Be we men, Sir George would have said, if he had thought of it; Be we men and suffer this dishonor? Alas the poor South, oppressed by all the rules of arithmetic the victim of a pitiless numeration — what

I had a conversation with Colonel Adams upon my arrival, in which I informed him I should assume command until I was ranked. I am satisfied we will do good service. We will move into the interior as soon as the wagons return with the ammunition. Colonel Adams will send the prisoners forward. You will please write me a note as to who is the ranking officer. My conduct at Shiloh and elsewhere would not, I think, justify a junior officer being placed over me. Nothing will be left undone to cripple the enemy in this State.

r. By this means each brigade was enabled to transport three days rations in its train, in addition to an equal amount in the division commissary train, the men also carrying three days rations each in his haversack. Hence, when the division resumed its march, it was supplied with full nine days rations. On the 9th, anticipating an order to do so, I moved the division towards Brandy Station to the support of General Stuart's cavalry. Halting, under Lieutenant-General Ewell's orders, at Botts' place, I subsequently, under orders, advanced to Barbour's house in advance of the station, but did not get in reach of the enemy, he having apparently been repulsed by the cavalry. Resumed the road, under orders, and after a ten-mile march bivouacked on Hazel river, near Gourd Vine church. Next day the route was resumed at an early hour, and on, without exception, the worst road I have ever seen troops and trains pass over. The route designated for the division led by Newby's X roads to

eneral commanding the division to throw out skirmishers to the front and move my line some half mile to the rear. After remaining in this position a short time the enemy began to retire, and I received orders to advance my skirmishers and retire my line still further to the rear — keeping my troops concealed behind the hills during the movement. The enemy retired before my line of, skirmishers. About 5 o'clock P. M. I received orders to call in my skirmishers and move to a wood near the Botts house, and there go into camp. On the following day I left camp with the division, making a night march and moving in the direction of Front Royal, which place we reached about 12 M. on the 12th, and crossed the Shenandoah on the same day, taking the road to Berryville via Millwood. Near Millwood, my brigade being in advance of the division, my advance guard came in contact with a small party of the enemy's cavalry, which retired before them and was not seen again until I reached Berryvill

keep the people in. side of this parchment band. Like Lycurgus, they would mould the people to fit the Constitution, instead of cutting the Constitution to fit the people. Goethe said, If you plant an oak in a flower-vase, one of two things will happen,--the oak will die, or the vase break. Our acorn swelled; the tiny leaves showed themselves under the calm eye of Washington, and he laid down in hope. By and by the roots enlarged, and men trembled. Of late, Webster and Clay, Everett and Botts, Seward and Adams, have been anxiously clasping the vase, but the roots have burst abroad at last, and the porcelain is in pieces. [Sensation.] All ye who love oaks, thank God for so much! That Union of 1787 was one of fear; we were driven into it by poverty and the commercial hostility of England. As cold masses up all things,--sticks, earth, stones, and water into dirty ice,--heat first makes separation, and then unites those of the same nature. The heat of sixty years agitation has se

time nominated. In the official records of the civil war, published by the. government, General Walker's name, coupled with honorable mention for gallant conduct or faithful services, occurs a number of times in the reports of Confederate officers. One interesting fact connected with him is this, that he is the only officer who ever commanded the Stonewall brigade who survived the war. All of the others, Generals Jackson, Winder, Garnett and Paxton, were killed in battle. Colonels Allen, Botts and Baylor, while temporarily in command of the Stonewall brigade, also fell at the head of their troops. As the sole surviving commander of this famous brigade, General Walker has been an object of much interest in the North and West, and in the last ten years has been a number of times invited to make addresses on commanders of the civil war and kindred subjects, in the cities of those sections. He has in this way been one of those ex-Confederate officers who have had much to do with the

ty that Longstreet should get up. Late Thursday night I rode with him a mile or two in the rear of our line of battle towards Thoroughfare Gap. I saw him get down off his horse and put his ear to the ground to listen if he could hear Longstreet's column advancing. I never shall forget the sad look of the man that night as he gazed towards Thoroughfare Gap, wishing for Longstreet to come. That night I told him of the number of killed—intimate personal friends of ours—of Baylor and Neff and Botts, and I added presently: We have only won this day by hard fighting. He was full of emotion when he turned around to me and said: No, sir, we have won this day by the blessing of Almighty God. The scene at Manassas. I would like to hear your story of how Jackson got the name of Stonewall, said the reporter. The Stonewall brigade arrived at Manassas Junction late in the evening of July 20, 1861, replied the Doctor. We got there after dark, camped alongside the road, and next
