1864. General Order No. 44. The Commanding General announces to the army, with heartfelt sorrow, the death of Major Gen. J. E. B. Stuart, late Commander of the cavalry corps of the Army of Northern Virginia. Among the gallant soldiers who have fallen in this war Gen. Stuart was second to none in valor, in zeal, and in unflinching devotion to his country. His achievements form a conspicuous part of the history of this army, with which his name and services will be forever associated. To military capacity of a high order, and all the nobler virtues of the soldier, he added the brighter graces of a pure life, guided and sustained by the Christian's faith and hope. The mysterious hand of an All wise God has removed him from the scene of his usefulness and lame. His grateful countrymen will mourn his loss and cherish his memory. To his comrades in arms he has left the proud recollection of he deeds and the inspiring influence of his example. B. E. Lee, General.
Grant's Designs. Therein much speculation with regard to the future plans of Grant, whether he will cross the Pamunkey at Jericho and come directly upon Gen. Lee's front, or will keep on upon the old stage road, and pursue the route by Hanover Court House, which brings him to Richmond by the Meadow Bridge road, or whether he will still continue to incline to the left, until he shall have reached McClellan's old base at West Point, where he may hope to form a junction with Butler. We should think the last the most probable conjecture, did it not imply an acknowledgement of defeat, which the Convention to assemble at Baltimore on the 7th June, could not mistake, and afford to McClellan a triumph, which might be fatal to the pretensions alike of Lincoln and Grant. As it is, we think he will come straight on, either by the Telegraph road, or by the old stage road, or by both. Whatever he may determine on, we entertain no doubt whatever of his signal defeat whenever the next trial
over of the classics, faithful to the rule of the ancient poets, who did not introduce their gods until the great occasion when human beings had failed to decide the struggle and the balance hung at a poise, neither side being able to gain the preponderance. Just then it became the dignity and supernal power of the god to enter the arena and decide the fate of the day. And so comes in the great Bramlette. The god of Kentucky! The world pauses to take a long breath! Grant's glory is fled. Lee will find it useless to fight against the power that descends from high Olympus; and that great and bloody drama which the world has watched with such deep interest is suddenly to be concluded. When the final blow will fall-- the exact day thereof — is known only to the Kentucky divinity. His advent cannot be far off. Let us, in the meantime, like the old Romans, prepare ourselves to die as decently as possible! We think it was of Charles Mathews that the following story is told: Mrs.
