y would undoubtedly have occurred; but he has been translated to a better world, for which his purity and his piety have eminently fitted him. You do not require to be told how great his gain. It is the living for whom I sorrow. I beg you will offer to Mrs. Fairfax and your daughters my heart-felt sympathy, for I know the depth of their grief. That God may give you and them strength to bear this great affliction, is the earnest prayer of your early friend R. E. Lee. Life of Albert Sidney Johnston. By his son, Colonel Wm. Preston Johnston. D. Appleton & Co. This book is announced in our advertising columns as now ready, and we have had the privilege of reading some of the advanced sheets. Reserving a full review until we shall have an opportunity of reading the whole book, we will only say now that it is the story of the life of a noble man whose career shed lustre on the American name — that the narrative displays that delicacy of feeling, chaste diction and vigorous s

Referring to reinforcements that joined General Johnston after he had reached the vicinity of Richmond, May, 1862, says: He was reinforced by Huger's division, consisting of three brigades under Generals Mahone, Armistead and Wright. One of Huger's brigades, preceding and including Seven Pines, wavalry under Hampton were present, and did good service, capturing many of the prisoners. My report of this battle was published over two years ago by the Southern Historical Society. On page 164 is a return of the army then commanded by General Johnston, endorsed Army near Richmond, Department of Northern Virginia, May 21, 1862. This return is supposed to give the strength of the army as at that time. It was given by divisions. There were four divisions. Two of these, Longstreet's and M

es of deep interest and great historic value. We cordially welcome the Annals as a valuable co-worker in the cause of historic truth, and shall feel it a privilege to touch elbows with it in our assaults upon the bulwarks of error. We shall preserve its numbers, have the volumes bound, and place them upon our shelves as valuable material for the future historian. We trust that friends of historic truth everywhere will give Dr. Drake warm sympathy and hearty support. Life of Albert Sidney Johnston. By William Preston Johnston. New York: D. Appleton & Co. We have looked with great expectations to the appearance of this book.

Thus it is that I can say that their guns were the last guns fired in defence of Southern liberty under Johnston's command, When they heard that the army was to be surrendered, for the first time since their organization they turned their backs upon the enemy — not from an enemy, but from a surrender.

The Confederate career of General Albert Sidney Johnston. A Review by General Basil W. Duke, of Kentucky. [In addition to our brief notices of Colonel William Preston Johnston s Memoir of his Father, we had intended preparing a review which shst and most unimpeachable contemporary testimony, has refuted all such charges — which, indeed, with those who knew Albert S. Johnston, needed no answer. As he made no secret, after learning that his resignation had been accepted, of his intention tfederate Congress had made provision. These five Generals were ranked as follows: 1. S. Cooper, Adjutant-General; 2. A. S. Johnston; 3. R. E. Lee; 4. J. E. Johnston; 5. G. T. Beauregard. General Johnston was assigned on the 10th September, 1861, to in her. He died in the very front of the fight, surrounded by struggling combatants. Thus passed the spirit of Albert Sidney Johnston, in the glory of his manhood and the hour of his victory. A noble and stainless life was appropriately closed by

to him, excite a smile and a fervent wish from an old foot cavalryman that Sheridan, or even Grant himself, had been in Jackson's front on that memorable Valley campaign. It is useless to speculate on what the result would have been; but we feel every confidence that Cavalry Sheridan would never afterwards have awakened the poet's lyre, and that the world would never have had this table-talk. His remark, I have had nearly all of the Southern Generals in high command in front of me, and Johnston gave me more anxiety than any of the others; I was never half so anxious about Lee, has very naturally raised the question, When and where was General J. E. Johnston ever in Grant's front? That great commander, with a very inadequate force, was in Grant's rear, while he was besieging Vicksburg; but with the heavy fortifications which protected him, and in the light of his statement in the next paragraph, that he did not know that Johnston was coming until he read his book, it is difficult

ing? He seemed about to fulfill these hopes and expectations, when, concentrating all the forces within his reach, he moved forward to the battle of Shiloh. General Johnston sent to me a cipher dispatch, being his plan of battle, and I regret the loss of it the more, because it was the only instance within my knowledge of a plan pt onward in the channels his great arm directed, I need not say to you who saw it. When at last an obstinate resistance stayed the steady progress of our lines, Johnston rode to the point of danger, to lead his men to the capture of what was believed to be the last point to be carried. There, and in the performance of that supretal result, but his heart was all his country's, his only thought was of his duty — he remembered not himself. [Mr. Davis here read a beautiful tribute to General Johnston, which has been often published.] There have been those who supposed he had been goaded into recklessness and had thrown away his life.

on this occasion the comrades and friends of Lee and Jackson — honored alike by the survivors of the Army of Northern Virginia and of the Army of Tennessee--names destined to live for all time to come. It is pleasant to me, as a representative of the Army of Tennessee, to tell you how sincerely the survivors of that army cherish and revere the names and memories of their great commanders. They feel a just pride that on the historic field of Shiloh they were led by that great commander Albert Sidney Johnston, a man whose life was one long sacrifice to conscience, and even that life on a woeful Sabbath did he yield as a holocaust at his country's need. They point with pride to the heroic Bishop--General Leonidas Polk, who, as citizen, clergyman, general, was without fear and without reproach. They remember the devotion of the brave, patriotic and indefatigable General Braxton Bragg. All of these now sleep the sleep that knows no wakening. They rest in honor — mourned by a berea
