en a representative from Georgia in the Confederate Congress, and Major-General Jones M. Withers, from Alabama, entered into rest. Within the circle of our immediate companionship we chronicle the death of H. L. Sponsler, —veterinary surgeon in Cobb's Legion of Cavalry, on the 9th of last June: of Elmore A.

A flag that went to prison. Above the few survivors of the Third Georgia regiment there floated an old battle-flag that has had an unusual experience. When the regiment was surrendered in 1865, Colonel Claiborne cut the flag from the staff and hid it inside his shirt. During his confinement in a northern prison he still kept it, and when he was paroled brought it back to Dixie. Near this flag were two, of which little remained but a few scraps of faded silk. These were the flags of Cobb's Georgia Legion and the First battalion of North Carolina Sharpshooters. Both of these commands had a fiery baptism, and but few survivors remain to tell the story of their prowess. The flag of the famous Fighting Thirteenth of North Carolina is so full of bullet-holes that it scarce holds together. It was carried by the man who bore it the last two years of the war. Another famous North Carolina flag is that of the Eighth (Colonel Shaw's) regiment. It was buried at Sugar Loaf, Virgini

It was proposed during the following February that Missouri be admitted into the Union, but a clause was desired by Northern congressmen prohibiting the extension of slavery. This was the great entering wedge, and resulted finally in the Missouri compromise of 1820. It was in this discussion that Mr. Cobb, of Georgia, declared that if the North persisted the Union would be dissolved, and remarked with warmth, addressing a congressman from New York, You have kindled a fire which all the water of the ocean cannot put out, which seas of blood only can extinguish. This first struggle resulted in the organization of the territory south of 36° 30′ and north of Louisiana into the Territory of Arkansas, with slavery unrestricted; but the admission of Missouri into the Union of States on either basi
