s my proud privilege to follow the fortunes of the Army of Northern Virginia, from Harper's Ferry, in 1861, to Appomattox Court-house, in 1865. Entering the service as high private in the rear rank, and afterward acting as chaplain in both Stonewall Jackson's and A. P. Hill's corps, I had some peculiar facilities for seeing and knowing what occurred. Personally acquainted with Robert E. Lee, J. E. Johnston, Beaureguard, Jackson, Stuart, Ewell, A. P.

Walker, and a large number of others of our leading officers, I at the same time made it my duty to know thoroughly the unknown private of the rank and file.

On the afternoon of the 30th of April, Ewell entered Swift Run Gap, which Jackson had just left, to fulfill his plan of uniting with Gen. Ed. Johnson, then posted twenty miles wage, and stubborn and unyielding in holding any position assigned him, he was just the man whom Jackson needed, in whom he seemed to have the highest confidence, and to whom he was certainly indebtedwait.

This being, by appointment, Hollywood Memorial day, the visiting Knights marched to the statue of Stonewall Jackson, on Capitol Square, and while their band played an appropriate dirge, they saluted the effigy of the great Chieftain, and placed a wreath around his neck, and flowers on the base of the statue. As we look out of our window on the bronze figure of old Stonewall, wreathed with flowers by Knights of Boston and Providence, we recall an eloquent passage in Governor Holliday's superb address of welcome: And now, if there be any animosities surviving, let them be buried in the graves of ou

This is one of a series of papers read before the Military Historical Society of Massachusetts, and gotten up in the admirable style for which the house of J. R. Osgood & Co., is famous. Our friend, Colonel Wm. Allan (whose study of this compaign and general knowledge of all of the campaigns of Stonewall Jackson, on whose staff he served, peculiarly fit him for the task), is preparing us a full review of the book, which we had, hoped to have in time for this issue, and shall publish as soon as received. We can only say now that we have read the book with deep interest and do not hesitate to pronounce it one of the ablest, fairest and most valuable books which we have seen. Colonel Dodge has carefully studied the official reports, &c., on both sides, has evidently tried to be fair and accurate, and has written in a spirit of candor
