wounded. A remarkable victory. Never in the history of modern war has such a force achieved such a victory—a victory remarkable for the disparity in numbers, armament and personnel as for the magnitude of its result and the skill with which it was guided. Two hundred and fifty men, too old, and boys too young for war, accomplished it, under the command of a wounded officer, who discarded all precedents of bridge defence in placing his force with the bridge behind it, and in using the bank of the river as his parapet. The result was undoubtedly the salvation of the Army of Northern Virginia. General Wilson led six thousand veterans, thoroughly armed and equipped, and was one of the ablest and most daring of the Federal commanders. His object in this movement was to cut off Lee's supplies and compel him to retreat. It was Wilson who next year led the last invasion up Alabama and broke up the effective resistance of the field forces in that State. Dabney H. Maury

Another account of the fight. The following letter gives another account of this remarkable battle: Randolph, Charlotte county, Va., Aug. 24, 1891. General D. H. Maury: My Dear General: * * * My brother, then under eighteen years of age was engaged in the battle. He assures me that there were in the fort not more than between four and five hundred men and boys—men over forty-five from the surrounding counties, and a few army men and officers on furlough; that of this number not morel, commanded a company of boys in the battle. Account of Captain J. W. Lewis. [times, October 11, 1891] My attention has been called to the account of that glorious battle of 24th June, 1864, at Staunton bridge. I am glad that General D. H. Maury and Major John B. McPhail have given so interesting an account of it. But you will see that both accounts only refer to the fight on the lower or eastern side of the bridge. We had six pieces of artillery, four on the lower side of the br

Recollections of General Earl Van Dorn. The history of a gallant soldier of the Confederacy—his personal Characteristics and his military Achievements—the campaign on the West of the Mississippi. By Major-General Dabney H. Maury. General Earl Van Dorn was, in the opinion of the writer, the most remarkable man the State of Mississippi has ever known. My acquaintance with him began in Monterey, in the fall of 1846. He was aide-de-camp then to General Persifor F. Smith, and was one of ; but never did I know him to postpone his duty for pleasure, or to pursue conviviality to a degree unbecoming a gentleman. Take him for all in all he was the most gallant soldier I have ever known. A letter from Colonel Dillon. General D. H. Maury, Chairman Executive Committee Southern Historical Society: Dear General: I take advantage of a few hours' detention here to say, in reply to your inquiry of the 12th instant, that, while my memory is not fresh as to all the details of Gen

l B. L. Farinholt, in reply to the account of that memorable engagement from the pen of General Dabney H. Maury, and which was recently published in the Times. Baltimore, Md., November 20, 1891. GGeneral Dabney H. Maury: Dear Sir: My attention has been called to a copy of The Times, of Richmond, Va., giving, over your signature, an account of the engagement between the Confederate and Federir: Your letter, with a copy of the Richmond Times of the 27th of September, containing General Dabney H. Maury's account of the fight at Staunton river bridge in June, 1864, came duly to hand. Ofunt does you a great injustice in giving to others the credit of planning and directing what General Maury correctly terms the most remarkable fight of the war. I was an active participant in the ndred and fifty men then placed at the foot of the bridge on the north side of the river. General Maury also misunderstood Colonel Flournoy as to where he was stationed during the fight. The Colo

peace as he was intrepid in war the tone of his letter to General Maury makes abundantly evident. On the other hand, General Maury has an General Maury has an excellent record from the day he left West Point until the present time. In 1859 he compiled the tactics for mounted riflemen, which for manhistorical material which the society had accumulated. In 1879 General Maury set on foot the movement for the development and coherent organtee of the National Guard Association of America. In a word, General Maury is as devoted and patriotic a citizen and as genuine a represengallant survivors of the war of thirty years ago.

That these resolutions be spread on our minutes and published, and that a copy be forwarded to the family of General Lee with the assurance of our deepest sympathies in their and our common bereavement. The committee who drafted the above resolutions were: Messrs. George L. Christian, chairman; Dabney H. Maury, William B. Taliaferro. To the memory of General long. At the same meeting, on motion of Mr. Micajah Woods, a committee of three was appointed to prepare resolutions to the memory of General A. L.

ght on the human sky. When the particular crisis had passed, Johnston's own debility was such that he could not assume command, and the order was indefinitely postponed. He had reported for duty all too soon, and too severely taxed the adamant which knew so little how to yield. It was not until the 12th of March that he was able to resume his duties in the field. Johnston had inspected Vicksburg during Christmas week, and even so early had decided, as he shortly afterwards stated to General Maury, that it was a mistake to keep in an intrenched camp so large an army, whose true place was in the field; that a heavy work should be constructed to command the river just above Vicksburg, at the turn, with a year's supply for a good garrison of three thousand men. Until April 14th Pemberton's telegrams indicated an effort against Bragg, in whose vicinity Johnston was, and not against Vicksburg. On the 16th of April the Union fleet passed the batteries of Vicksburg. To the mind of John

ates. During the last two years more than 46,000 projectiles of the heavy artillery were thrown into the fort. For one week of that defence every gun was dismounted, and the whole fort was reduced to a mass of bricks and mortar; but those gallant men, who ever refused to be relieved by any other troops, reconstructed their fort, put up sand bags and the debris better than it ever had been, remounted their guns, and began again to work upon their enemy. Their flag in the four years was cut down more than thirty times, but it was instantly restored by some gallant fellow who sprung upon the parapet, restored it again, and waved his hat to the enemy. After more than four years, the last hope of the Confederacy being dead forever, these men, under orders of their chief, lowered their torn banner and left their example to mankind. In view of these facts Europe should pause before making war upon us, and we should halt before ever again we make war upon each other. Dabney H. Maury.

When flour is five dollars a barrel in Richmond and ten dollars in New York it will leave Richmond for the other city till the equilibrium is restored. The law of demand and supply rules the world. The undeveloped resources and wonderful advantages of the South are so vast that they may not be told and the world begins to know it. A great storm. Commodore Maury said that ninety miles from the Virginia coast is the point more free from storms than any other place in America. The storm that killed Conklin had its head centre in the great lakes, passed south behind the Appalachian hills, and struck the Atlantic below Charleston, then returned with the Gulf stream, struck the Jersey coast at Cape Henlopen.
