From all parts of Europe, from enemiesith his government, and no thought entered his brain to stay the arm of Lee or Jackson, until he could have a balance struck and settled. There was an intense spin clone his command, he was apt to believe time would right him, and to say as Jackson did, when his part at Manassas was misrepresented—My brigade is not a brigade all and Calhoun, Clay and Crittenden, Davis and Lee, Maury and Manly, and Stonewall Jackson and Stephen Elliott.

ar the section of artillery, he said, Go to the rear of that battery, file to the left and charge! I obeyed orders—all but the charging! On the right of the battery I looked around and found Lieutenant Reid and eight men. How the cannon shot tore down that hill and up that road. I could see where the 55th had charged and the dead lying there. Wagner always seemed to me the most terrible of our battles, but the musketry at Honey Hill! ( Georgians, under Willis, Edwards, Wilson, Cook and Jackson, and 3d South Carolina cavalry, as infantry, under Major John Jenkins responsible), was something fearful. The rebel yell was more prominent (artillery, cavalry and infantry, all responsible) than ever I heard it! Good management of the enemy. It is only fair to say that the Confederate management seems to have been excellent from first to last. The energy which brought a force from Western Georgia to the coast of Carolina so opportunely that it got in position only ten minutes bef

t I had discovered McClellan's vulnerable point—the heel of Achilles, and hastened to give Stuart the information. It was a hot day in June; I found him sitting out in the front yard in the shade. All were in high glee; news had just come that Jackson had defeated Fremont and Shields at Cross Keys and Port Republic. Being worn out by a long ride, I laid down on the grass and related to Stuart what I had learned, and told him he could strike a heavy blow at McClellan's communications. After temperament. His answer was It may be for years and it may be forever, which suggested the parting from Erin and Kathleen Mavourneen. A Sharp Collison. From the direction we took the impression prevailed that we were going to reinforce Jackson in the Shenandoah Valley. The command bivouacked that night about twenty miles front Richmond, and a few miles from Hanover Courthouse. Early the next morning Stuart asked me to go in advance with a few men to the court-house. This settled

asion of state funerals. The last address of this character was made over the bier of United States Senator Vance, in the Senate chamber. President Cleveland and his Cabinet attended the obsequies, and some time afterwards the President spoke of Dr. Hoge's perfect taste and profoundly impressive style as a funeral orator. Among his more lofty and elaborate orations, the one which will probably live longest on the printed page and in the memory of those who heard it, was that on Stonewall Jackson, delivered to a throng at the unveiling of the bronze monument in Capitol Square in 1875. It was a sublime effort. The earliest literary production in print is probably a lecture delivered by him at the University of Virginia, Session of 1850-1, on the Evidences of Christianity, and published, with others, with portraits of the lecturers, in a Royal 8vo. volume, New York, 1853.

General Stonewall Jackson, observing his action in that battle, said: Every army ought to have a Pelham on each ir hallowed dust. Virginia gave to the world Gaines, Harrison, Taylor, Scott, Johnston, Stonewall Jackson, Stuart and the long roll of the chivalric Lees, above all, the one colossal Lee, whose fag and Shepherdstown he fought with the enthusiasm of youth and the coolness of a veteran. Stonewall Jackson loved and trusted The Boy Artillerist, as he was often called, and frequently gave expressbelieved the cause a just and righteous one. He believed that no cause led by Generals Lee and Jackson could be other than a righteous cause. He closed with an allusion to a small painting in the Library Building, at Washington, of Stonewall Jackson and his men praying, and said that picture had attracted more attention than any in that notable gallery.

of Christian gentlemen; that they were men whose characters have borne the inspection and commanded the respect of the world. Yes, the names of Davis, of Lee, of Jackson, the Johnstons, Beauregard, Ewell, Gordon, Early, Stuart, Hampton, Magruder, the Hills, Forrest, Cleburne, Polk, and a thousand others I could mention, will grow night. The rocky defiles of these mountains have echoed and re-echoed the thunders of artillery and the rattle of musketry amidst the ringing commands of Lee and Jackson, and the flashing, knightly sabres of Ashby, Stuart and Hampton. Here banner and plume have waved in the mountain breeze, whilst helmet and blade and bayonet wert forgotten amid the effulgence which will forever cling to the names of these illustrious, though vanquished leaders, so in the ages to come, the fame of Lee, of Jackson, the Johnstons, Stuart, Ashby and others will outshine that of Grant, Sheridan and Sherman like the Sun 'mid Moon and Stars.

hysics, with some knowledge of trigonometry. The first examinations were held in Richmond. Of course, the fact of the examinations greatly diminished the number of applicants. Of those recommended by the Board, so many were from Virginia that the President declined to appoint them until an equal opportunity was given to the young men of the different armies of the Confederacy in other States. Hence, I was directed to report to and conduct examinations in the armies of Generals Lee and Jackson in Virginia, General Bragg in Tennessee, and General Pemberton in Mississippi. Under other officers, examinations were conducted in Alabama and Florida. The result of this sifting process was that the army was supplied with capable and efficient ordnance officers. Early in 1863 I was appointed commandant of the Richmond Arsenal. Here the greater part of the ordnance and ordnance stores were prepared for the use of the Confederate armies. The arsenal occupied a number of tobacco-

And so it came to be regarded that the Army of Northern Virginia was invincible, not to be defeated, and, indeed, that is true, for at the last they were overwhelmed and overpowered by the vast armies recruited from ever clime and commanded by
