ous on all occasions, that I never wonder at fresh proofs of it. But your late purchase of an estate in the colony of Cayenne, with a view of emancipating the slave, is a generous and noble proof of your humanity. Would to God a like spirit might diffuse itself generally among the minds of the people of this country! But I despair of seeing it. Some petitions were presented to the Assembly, at its last session, for the abolition of slavery, but they scarcely obtained a hearing.-Letter to Lafayette. Rising early the next morning, I walked abroad to view the works of God; and as I limped along, I thanked him exceedingly for his goodness and kindness to me, his unworthy servant. As I passed the cabins of the sheriff's slaves, they were preparing to go up to his house for prayers. After breakfast, our host, taking us aside, informed us that as we had been committed to his charge, he would be obliged to return us to Macon, where he would get the commandant to parole us, limitin

e when the writer visited it, at the close of May, 1866. It was upon the southern extremity of the Malvern Hills, and from the lawn in front of it there was a comprehensive view of the lowlands and the James River, in the vicinity of Turkey Bend. The view southward was bounded by City Point in the distance. The old mansion was of brick, and had a modern addition of wood. During the old war for independence, the estate was owned by one of the Randolph family. It was the headquarters of Lafayette while he was pursuing Cornwallis down the Peninsula. The writer has in his possession two autograph letters by the Marquis, dated at Malvern Hills, in the year 1781. There he made arrangements with Major Myer, the Chief of the Signal Corps, for instant communication with his army and the gunboats, and then went on board the Galena, to confer with Commodore Rodgers. By this time a greater part of the army had emerged from the White. Oak Swamp into the high open region of Malvern Hills, w

Mountain, This is en offshoot of Lookout Mountain. Starting about forty miles south of Chattanooga, and running toward it, it loses itself in the general level near where the West Chickamauga River crosses the road between Chattanooga and Lafayette. through the passes of which he expected the National army would approach from McLemore's Clove. The fact of this retreat was revealed to General Crittenden, when, on the 9th, with the main body of his corps, which had crossed the Tennessee ate his foe. But the golden opportunity too soon passed. Rosecrans, on perceiving the danger, issued orders for the concentration of his forces in the Chickamauga Valley, in the vicinity of Crawfish Spring, about half-way between Chattanooga and Lafayette. Crittenden, alarmed by threatened danger to his communications, had already made Sept. 12, 1863. a rapid flank movement in that direction, from Ringgold, covered by Wilder's brigade, which was compelled to skirmish heavily at Lett's tan-yard
vidences of the solicitude occasioned the enemy by our movement to the Alabama line. On the 10th of October, General Sherman telegraphed to Generals Thomas and Cox, as follows: Sherman's Memoirs, vol. II, page 153. I will be at Kingston to-morrow. I think Rome is strong enough to resist any attack, and the rivers are all high. If he (Hood) turns up by Summerville, I will get behind him. On the 16th, when in pursuit of our Army from Resaca in the direction of Ship's Gap and Lafayette, he again telegraphs to Thomas, at Nashville: Sherman's Memoirs, vol. II, page 156. Send me Morgan's and Newton's old Divisions. Re-establish the road, and I will follow Hood wherever he maygo. I think he will move to Blue Mountain. We can maintain our men and animals on the country. On the 17th, he writes Schofield, at Chattanooga: Sherman's Memoirs, vol. II, page 157. * * * We must follow Hoodtill he is beyond the reach of mischief, and then resume the offensive.
of the abolitionists would undoubtedly prolong the existence of bondage; but where, owing to its peculiar geographical position, slavery will soon be drowned by the advancing and increasing tide of Northern emigration. Neither will the mere prevention of the extension of slavery kill it. Within its present limits, it may live a thousand years. There is land enough to support the present races, and their increase, for that length of time there. Unless we strike a blow for the slaves — as Lafayette and his Frenchmen did for the revolutionary sires — or unless they strike a blow for themselves, as the negroes of Jamaica and Hayti, to their immortal honor, did--American slavery has a long and devastating future before it, in which, by the stern necessities of its nature, Freedom or the Union must crouch and die beneath its potent sceptre of death and desolation.

lhood. The opinion of the Father of his Country respecting the peculiar institution of the South may be perceived from the following extracts. In a letter to Lafayette, bearing date April 5, 1783, he says: The scheme, my dear Marquis, which you propose as a precedent to encourage the emancipation of the black people in thison, for the Abolition of Slavery, but they could scarcely obtain a reading.--Ibid., vol. IX., p. 163. In a remarkable and very interesting letter written by Lafayette in the prison of Magdeburg, he said: I know not what disposition has been made of my plantation at Cayenne; but I hope Madam De Lafayette will take care thatMadam De Lafayette will take care that the negroes who cultivate it shall preserve their liberty. The following language is also Lafayette's, in a letter to Hamilton, from Paris, April 13, 1785: In one of your New York Gazettes, I find an association against the Slavery of the negroes, which seems to me worded in such a way as to give no offense to the moderat
