ground that the edition of this work, published in 1901, contained important amendments, as well as omissions, not found in that of 1896, which was, in our opinion, so justly criticised and condemned by the late Dr. Hunter McGuire and Rev. S. Taylor Martin, D. D., in their reports to this camp in 1899. Whilst it is true that this latest edition has been freed from many of the objections then urged against the former edition, and it is apparent that the authors have profited by these criticisms not, in our opinion, such historians as we should allow to write the history for our children, it matters not if they are Southern writers. This smacks too much of the methods pursued by the Grand Army Republic of making history to order. As Dr. Martin wrote of the first edition, so think we of this. He said: The book is a feeble production. The controlling idea is evidently the production of a history that would be acceptable to both North and South. To accomplish such a task is (as
Interesting from Havana. --A letter from Havana, March 1st, says: On the evening of the 15th ult. came in, in eleven days from Mobile, the Confederate schooner Smith Townsend, sixty-nine tons, with cotton; and on the 27th sailed for Matamoros (?) the Confederate schooner Wide Awake, Capt. Martin, carrying Mr. Yancey. He has been exciting some curiosity here by his long, light hair. This he had cropped and otherwise disguised. He has tried to run the blockade, for no one believes he is going to Matamoros. This schooner has run the blockade several times. Once she carried over Dr. Hugh Martin, (brother of the Captain,) our former Consul at Matamoros. The schooner Charlotte has also sailed for Matanzas; she goes under the English flag. Yesterday came in C. P. Knapp, bringing the Captain of the English steamer Labaun, whose departure from this port some time since I wrote you of as being under suspicious circumstances. I was told that she intended to evade the blockade;
Boggs's Artillery Battalion. --We understand that Capt. Boggs has had many offers of companies for his battalion of Light Artillery. Of the number offered he has selected three, and now wishes another from Virginia, and one from without the State, if they can report for master by April 1st.--This battalion promises to be a splendid command. We learn that Messrs. S. Taylor Martin, and Lieuts. Holliday and Garnett, are recruiting a company in this city for this battalion, and, from the character of the gentlemen engaged, doubt not that they will soon obtain their number.
in Roanoke county, --A correspondent of the Lynchburg Republican, written Salem, Va., March 12, gives the fol particulars of an exciting occurrence of Roanoke county, under Col assembled here preparatory to leaved or Manassas. After the regiment was a known Union man began to distate his principles among the people, for he was ted by some argent Seces The discussion soon became an when Captain A. J. Deyerle, who had ved from Gen. Jackson's command to for his company, told him, (Ray Mar. name,) that the would as lief fight an home as abroad. "Martin responding him whether he called him a trai Captain Deyerie answered that he did it personally, but that any man could oppose his native land was a traitor after some further animated remarks made at Captain Deyerie, who drew a shot him, one ball going through der and another through his abdomen will probably prove mortal.

onstitution, and they were the same yesterday as they are to day, and will remain so forever. The unlimited power of Congress, as advocated by the Senator from Maine, is only a foundation for despotism. The functions of Congress are civil and legislative, and it cannot control unlimited war power. He contended that the supreme Court had settled this question, and decided that the power was in the President. He cited from the case of Luther vs. Borden, 7th Howard, pp. 43 and 46; also, Martin vs. Mott, 12th Wheatley. If the President abuses the power there is a remedy in Congress, but if Congress usurps the war power there is absolutely no remedy. He cites further the case of Cross vs. Harrolson, growing out of the state of things in California. California was conquered in 1848, but Congress had no power to legislate for it at all, and yet the President instituted a form of Government for it. But this bill relates to property not captured or expected to be captured, and is not
, nor, to our knowledge, have any been there up to this time. On Saturday last we had the pleasure of seeing the Rev. Mr. Martin, from Heanfor which place be left a little over a week ago and from him we learned, how the report originated. It told him that boats and troops were to go to Swansboro' that day, (some day of the week before last.) This was told to Mr. Martin and he repeated it as told to him. It soon assumed a positive form, that they were Swansboro', and that Mr. Martin, ro him. It soon assumed a positive form, that they were Swansboro', and that Mr. Martin, right from there, said so.

Burning cotton. --The Raleigh State Journal says: An officer of the Confederate army, who is engaged in this most important duty, tells us he burned not less than 1,553 bales for two persons alone, Messrs. Wm. Grimes and P. Atkinson. He has already burned almost all the cotton at or near the water courses, in Washington, Pirt, Martin, and other counties, visiting the plantations even in the interior. He assures us he was aided in this patriotic work cheerfully by the owners themselves, except in one case only. But as a set off to this case, in another the owner had his burned, though the boat was at the landing to take it off. Not only the cotton has been burned, but large quantities of naval stores. The buccaneers of the North got absolutely nothing in occupying Washington. This is the true way to defend ourselves. If the buccaneers get nothing, they will soon cause their marauding invasions of our country. But the work must be done effectually, for the smallest gai
Arrival of prisoners. --On the 15th of April, five Yankees and two domestic traitors were received at the Confederate States Military Prison, in this city. The soldiers were J. B.

Schwebel, citizen, captured at Warrenton, both as disloyal, 8th April. On the 16th, Wm. M Martin and Wm. Kennedy, of Co. K, 13th Pennsylvania regiment, were received at the prison; having been captured near the mouth of Warwick river; on the 13th instant. The two last named were part of McClellan's forces on the Peninsula and have preceded that redoubtable chieftain in his march to Richmond.
