vision of the Army of Northern Virginia Association, on the evening of the 1st of November, was in every respect a most brilliant affair. The oration of Leigh Robinson, Esq., on The Battle of the Wilderness, was chaste, eloquent, and patriotic, and a valuable contribution to this series of historical addresses. By the way, what other army that ever existed could furnish from among its subalterns such orators as Colonel Charles Marshall, Colonel C. S. Venable, Major John W. Daniel, Captain W. Gordon McCabe, and Private Leigh Robinson? The banquet at the St. Claire hotel was presided over by the president (General W. H. F. Lee), and was a magnificent affair. We regret that we have not room for further notice of the feast of reason and flow of soul which made the occasion one of far more than ordinary interest. The officers of last year (General W. H. F. Lee, president, George L. Christian and Leroy S. Edwards, secretaries, Major R. Stiles, treasurer, &c.,) were unanimously re-ele

M., and directed in detail, by a special order from department headquarters, which was received from Captain McCabe, of General Ripley's staff, at dark, and was necessitated from the untenable condition of Battery Wagner, the greatly exhausted condition of the garrison, and constant artillery and sharpshooting fire of the enemy, which prevented repairs. o consideration, I trust that this will not compare unfavorably on the part of the garrison with any other retreat made during this war.

Defence of Petersburg. from a strictly military point of view, the term siege cannot properly be applied to the operations around Petersburg, for there was lacking what, according to Vauban, is the fist requisite in a siege — perfect investment. the same is true of Sebastopol. Address of Capt. W. Gordon McCabe (formerly Adjutant of Pegram's battalion of artillery, A. N. V.) before the Association of the Army of Northern Virginia, November 1, 1876. [published by request of the Association.] Comrades of the Army of Northern Virginia: I am here in obedience to your orders and give you a soldier's greeting. It has fallen to me, at your behest, to attempt the story of a defence more masterly in happy reaches of generalship than that of Sebastopol, and not less memorable than that of Zaragoza in a constancy which rose superior to accumulating disaster, and a stern valor ever reckoned highest by the enemy. It is a great task, nor do I take shame to myself that I a

the character of our magazine does not necessitate its appearance with the regularity of a literary or pictorial monthly, we are anxious that it shall be issued early in each month, and hope to be able generally to accomplish this. Captain W. Gordon McCabe's splendid oration occupies so large a part of our present issue that several other important papers are crowded out. But we are sure that our readers will thank us for giving them this valuable contribution to the history of one of the most important epochs of the war. The foot notes show the diligent research and painstaking investigation which Captain McCabe has given to his subject, while they at the same time add greatly to the historic value of his noble address. Renew! Renew! renew at once! is our earnest request of the large number of subscribers whose subscriptions expire with this number. Our terms are $3 per annum in advance, and we beg a prompt compliance. The two bound volumes of the Papers for 187

t it never entered my mind to quietly assume the accusation of the violation of an oath on the part of Lee. Let me now turn to the other contents of your very kind letter. You ask me what Confederate authorities I have access to in preparing my book on the civil war. I frankly admit that the Southern sources have until now been flowing very scantily. I am in posession of and have consulted the following works: Pollard's Lost Cause, and Southern History of the War; Biographies of Lee, by McCabe and Cook; Biography of Stonewall Jackson, by Cook; Life of Jefferson Davis, by Pollard; Battle-fields of Virginia, by----; History of Morgan's Cavalry, by Basil W. Duke; A Rebel War-clerk's Diary, by Jones, and General Joseph E. Johnston's Narrative. I think that is about all I have. I have ordered lately the latest biography of Lee, which has come out this spring, by Marshall, if I am not mistaken. You may be sure it has been my earnest desire to be as impartial as possible, and it has b

as H. Carter, Major W. K. Martin, Major T. A. Brander, Private C. McCarthy. On motion of General B. T. Johnson, seconded by General W. B. Taliaferro, and endorsed by a number of others, Rev. J. William Jones was requested to prepare a volume containing the report of the original organization of the Association and the addresses at the Lee Memorial meeting — the address of Colonel Charles Marshall at the reunion in 1873; Colonel C.

Gordon McCabe in 1876; Private Leigh Robinson in 1877, and Colonel William Allan in 1878--together with a carefully prepared roster of the Army of Northern Virginia.

The report of the Treasurer showed that there had passed through his hands for the relief of our comrades of the Louisiana division who were suffering from the fever plague, $3,270.96, and that other contributions, in money and provisions, sent direct to

ut aside the harness of war and have become quiet and plodding citizens, our ways those of peace, I much prefer to avoid a collision, although it be one on paper. And only for the sake of truth and justice am I willing to disturb the kindly relations that should exist between old comrades; and for that reason, and that alone, am I willing to place myself in antagonism with those with whom I served. In the December number, 1876, of the Southern Historical Society Papers, page 301, Capt. W. Gordon McCabe says, in a foot note to his address made before the A. N. V. Assoc'n, that the defence of Battery Gregg, April 2d, 1865, had wrongfully been attributed to Harris's Mississippi brigade, and that the defence was made by Lane's North Carolina brigade. The source or manner of his information he does not state, but advises by all means the publication of General Lane's official report. In the January number, 1877, page 19, appears the official report of Brig.-Gen'l J. H. Lane, accompan
