at times of sorest need have shown by their unflinching firmness, amid dangers that appal the hearts of men, that they are worthy the honors that men wear. Jonas Perkins, Company D, of the One Hundred and Eighth Ohio, performed an act of heroism on that occasion that entitles him to an acknowledgment from the General commanding When the rebel line a second time started on a charge — this time to take a battery and destroy the last hope for holding the left — they gave way and ran. Jonas Perkins, a boy about seventeen years of age in appearance, but a full-grown man in action, stood alone and at his post. The cannoneer at post No. 3 was struck by a Minie ball and disabled. Young Perkins leaned his gun against the barricade, and there amid the thunders of six guns when stout hearts were failing and all seemed lost, when that little cove darkened by the smoke of battle was ringing with the lusty cheers of the enemy, he stepped up and asked the Captain if he might take the post o
30, 1865. Colonel — I have the honor to submit here, with a succinct report of the operations of this army in the recent campaign resulting in the evacuation of Richmond and Petersburg, and terminating in the surrender of the Army of Northern Virginia. On the twenty-ninth ultimo, in pursuance of orders received from the Lieutenant-General commanding, the Second and Fifth corps were moved across Hatcher's run, the former by the Vaughan road, the latter by the old stage road crossing at Perkins'. The Second corps, holding the extreme left of the line before Petersburg prior to moving, was relieved by Major-General Gibbon, commanding two divisions of the Twenty-fourth corps. Major-General Humphreys, commanding the Second corps, was directed after crossing Hatcher's run. to take position with his right resting on Hatcher's run, and his left extending to the Quaker road. Major-General Warren, commanding Fifth corps, was directed at first to take position at the intersection of th

The new bull would, in spite of the sermons by which Right and Wrong, 1837, pp. 50-57. it was immediately enforced, in all probability have fallen flat—such was the anti-slavery leaven in the churches—but for its speedy bolstering by an Appeal of Clerical Abolitionists on Anti-slavery Measures, published in the New England Spectator of August 2, and bearing the signatures of five clergymen, viz., Charles Fitch, Boston; David Sanford, Dorchester; Wm. M. Cornell, Quincy; Jonas Perkins, Weymouth; and Joseph H. Towne, Boston. The first and last alone were known for their anti-slavery connection; and, in the discussion to which the Appeal instantly gave rise, they had no Lib. 7.134. further support from their co-signataries. The authorship of the document was divided between them.

Please not to neglect this. On August 30, 1838, Mrs. Chapman, recovered from Ms. May 25, 1838, W. L. G. to G. W. Benson. the almost fatal attack of fever induced by the fatigue of her Philadelphia experience, informs Mr. Garrison that H. C. Wright has recently been at Weymouth, much to the discomfiture of Mr. Perkins. He delivered seven lectures there, the people hearing him gladly. We all hope to see you at the Peace Convention, which, as far as I can learn, bids fair to excite a general interest. Mrs. Chapman adds: I send you Emerson's oration [the famous discourse before the Harvard Divinity School, July 15, 1838]. It is rousing the wrath of the Cambridge powers that be in an astonishing manner. How cowardly are Unitarians generally! They take the alarm at sentiments which differ only in sha
