Joseph Wheeler. His rank by Commission in the C. S. Army-Major-General. Interesting incidents in the journey southward of President Davis. [ The following communication from an esteemed supporter of the Southern Historical Society Papers, and a gallant follower of Wade Hampton, is of interest incidentally, apart fr his name for the West Point list as Major-General. This seems definitely to settle the point, but Gen. Wade Hampton told me that in an interview he had with President Davis in North Carolina, when the latter was arranging for his escape southward, he offered the President an excort of 5,000 mounted volunteers, which he guaranteed to raise at once. Mr. Davis, however, declined this offer on the ground that such a force would attract too much attention, and would not be sufficiently mobile for his purposes. Gen. Hampton then suggested that with a small escort the President should take Gen. Wheeler to accompany him, as the latter would be useful, being

lothed and fed, still it does not prove they were less brave, for they came from the same race of people; but it does prove they were without a cause and without leaders. A great leader will incite men to brave actions even in a bad cause, but a noble cause will incite them to brave action without a leader. The attempt was made to convince the North that they fought for the Union, and some think so even now, but the truth is, if the Northern leaders had loved the Union as devotedly as did Davis, Stephens, Lee and the Johnstons war would have been impossible. What the North did fight for was a fanatical frenzy on the part of its leaders to free the negroes, in which nine-tenths of the men felt no interest, and on the part of the politicians and contractors to feather their nests. On the other hand, the cause of the South could not be better stated than in General Order No. 16, to the Army of Northern Virginia, which says: Let every soldier remember that on his courage and fid

ederates, but when we come to inquire into them we find that the dissentients are so far from the thought of making terms that they reproach the Government of President Davis for not carrying on offensive war, for confining its military operations to the defence of Southern territory. In fine, we are persuaded that the rule of theoo late, that it had held its hand when the cards seemed all in its favor. If a great man struggling with adversity is a spectacle for the gods, Mr. President Davis, delivering his inaugural address, almost on the morrow of the signal disaster of Donelson, may, perhaps, claim something of our sympathy. In this speech there ishrough both hemispheres, and convince those who yet may doubt that the men of the Confederate States are not made of the metal that gives in at the first shock. Mr. Davis describes to us the causes and the progress of the war, which, he says, was reluctantly accepted by the South. "The tide," he admits, "is for the moment against
