t. The battle of New Orleans. The temporary cessation of the Napoleonic wars and the banishment of Bonaparte to Elba gave England the opportunity to land at the mouth of the Mississippi a force stated at 12,000 men, consisting of veterans of Wellington's Peninsular campaigns. These British veteran troops, who, under the leadership of Wellington, had just performed the exploit of driving from the Spanish peninsula the hitherto invincible legions of France, led by the great marshals of Napoleon; these British veterans were entitled to be considered among the finest soldiery then in the world. But the British government was wofully mistaken if they thought that the manhood of the country was assembled on the Canadian frontier, and that the conspicuous lack of military ardor there displayed by both officers and men was characteristic of all the American people. By landing a force of veteran troops at New Orleans the English indeed took the United States by surprise. But Andrew

ain John, Holmes Smith, of the Lynchburg Home Guard, who, after Lieutenant-Colonel Kirkwood Otey, and Major Risque Hutter, were wounded in that battle, commanded the 11th Virginia Infantry. In 1897 Commander Sylvester Chamberlain, of an Association of United States Naval Veterans, of Buffalo, New York, wrote to Colonel Martin (now Dr. Martin, of Lynchburg, Va.), asking him to recount the charge, saying: The charge of Pickett's Division outrivals the storied heroism of the Old Guard of Napoleon. They knew no such battle as that of Gettysburg, and, I believe, the old First Confederate Army Corps could have whipped the best two corps in Napoleon's army, taken in the zenith of his fame. Dr. Martin wrote this paper under the call from a Northern camp commander. Captain John Holmes Smith was with his regiment on the right wing of Pickett's charge, under Kemper, and struck the Federal line to the right of where General Armistead made the break. The soldiers of Kemper there took

[from the New Orleans, la, Picayune, mar. 30, Apr. 6, 20, 1902.] By Captain James Dinkins. The seven days battle around Richmond, in 1862, furnishes a text for study and discussion by critics and students of military science, which probably takes rank ahead of any of the operations of the war. We often hear expressions that this or that campaign was Napoleonic, but in my humble judgment there was more genius in the conception of the plan of the seven days battle, than in any movement Napoleon ever made. A writer in the Boston Transcript several years ago, in commenting upon the different generals of the war, stated McClellan was the greatest general developed on either side, and while he was not always successful, he never suffered defeat. This statement will not be sustained by a single man who served in the army of the Potomac during the seven days battle. General McClellan was not only defeated at Richmond, but was routed in six of the engagements; nor is this fact a dis

rrender reached us almost immediately afterward, and the briefness of the interval would itself suffice to disprove the allegations contained in the first editorial of the Washington Post on A Lost Chapter of History (March 14, 1901), from which I quote the following extract: At all events, Polignac, accompanied by Moncure, went to Paris —via Galveston, we think—and though their mission was barren of result so far as concerned the Confederacy, it leaked out when Moncure returned, that Louis Napoleon had frequently consulted with Lord Palmerston and that so far from refusing to consider the proposition at all—whatever it may have been—the latter had given it a great deal of his time, and had finally dismissed it with reluctance. We have since been told that the Queen herself intervened, but we rather think that the appearance of the Russian fleets at New York and San Francisco—with orders, as afterward transpired, to place themselves at the disposal of the United States governmen
