o, and every hero, if need be, a martyr. I want no higher encomium than that; I want no better testimony to the truth of the position I assume. Far be it from us to assert that the armies of the South were armies of saints. I do not assert that; but I do affirm that, perhaps, never in the world's history were gathered together such large bodies of men who were so generally pervaded by a deep and strong religious spirit. How many of its leaders were great whole-hearted Christian men. Polk was a bishop; Pendleton, a clergyman, and D. H. Hill a religious author. Call the roll of brigadiers, and you will be astonished to find how large a proportion of them were God-fearing men. Joseph E. Johnston, eminent for military skill, consecrated his talents to the service of God. Lee is the noblest type of a Christian warrior that our century has produced; nay, stands peerless among the sons of men of every nationality and of every age. In the crisis of many a fight the right arm of

Lieutenant-General Polk's order on Assuming command in Mississippi. Headquarters meridian, Miss., December 23, 1863. The distinguished General, who has been in charge of the Department of the Southwest, having been relieved, the undersigned, by order of His Excellency, the President, assumes command. While it is a cause of regret that we are to lose the services of so experienced an officer, whose high military qualities have so long given a feeling of security to the Department,field will resolve afresh to renew their vows of undying resistance to our enemy, those who have not yet taken up arms will come forward promptly to swell the ranks of our battalions, and share with their countrymen the duty and the honor of breaking the power of the oppression. The vigorous employment of our own resources, with unity, harmony, and an unflinching determination to be free, cannot, under God, but crown our efforts with triumphant success. L. Polk, Lieutenant-General Commanding.

ited commission as major-general of the Confederate States army, bearing date March, 1862. In the Kentucky campaign he led the van of the right wing, and at the battle of Perryville his division bore the brunt of the conflict and won brilliant honors. During the battle he rode along the lines, through an incessant shower of shot and shell, calmly smoking his pipe, and breathing the very soul of chivalry and enthusiasm into his men. That day he captured three or four batteries. Lieutenant-General Polk, in his report of the battle of Perryville, says: To Major-Generals Hardee and Cheatham I feel under obligations for the judgment and skill manifested in conducting the operations of their respective commands, and for the energy and vigor with which they directed their movements. Few instances are on record where such successes have been obtained against such disparity of numbers. At Murfreesboro, in the two actions of Chickamauga and Missionary Ridge, and during all of Hood's c

the enemy, and held it, protecting the right flank of our army all day. At Ringgold, or Taylor's Ridge, my brigade was at first held in reserve in the gap; and General Polk, having been sent over behind the right hand hill, had sent the First Arkansas regiment upon the hill to watch the movements of the enemy. When General Cleburt at a time, leading each regiment in person, and by a dash drove the enemy from the top of the hill. As I brought up my last regiment, I discovered that Brigadier-General Polk had hastily formed his brigade still further to the right, and was hotly engaged. A staff-officer came from him in full speed asking me for help, saying e to repulse the enemy. The victory was ours, and the enemy was gone down the hill in perfect confusion. A deafening shout of triumph went down our line, and General Polk, as if enwrapped in the glory of our success, dashed up to me, and seizing me by the hand exclaimed, Just in time to save us, General! The men, observing the

welve or fifteen men, who held the ground until our wounded were removed. This was about 6 o'clock, and we were ordered back some hundred and fifty yards, where we lay in line of battle until the next morning, September 20th, 1863. At daylight on this morning (20th) we were aroused and remained drawn up in line for some time, when we were moved by the right flank about half a mile, where we were held in line of battle until about 10 o'clock A. M., when we were ordered to lay down to allow Polk's corps to pass over us to the front, but they never appeared on that portion of the field. We remained thus until about 11 o'clock A. M., a spirited fire being kept up upon our right and left, when we were ordered up and forward, there being, as we were told, two lines of battle (Confederate) in front. Captain Cleveland, previous to our advance, addressed a few encouraging words to the regiment and placed himself in front of the colors, where he remained as long as I saw him. We were moved

ers to be ready for action by dawn following, not however to advance and renew combat until firing should be heard nearing us on the right coming down the line, as it was not deemed advisable to press the enemy too hotly below his centre until General Polk's corps had driven his left (our right) across the Chattanooga road, so as to cut off the best road of retreat. For some reason, I have never learned, General Polk's troops did not begin the fight of Sunday, the 20th, before 10 o'clock A. M.,General Polk's troops did not begin the fight of Sunday, the 20th, before 10 o'clock A. M., or very little before. At the appointed signal we began to advance, and had proceeded but a few hundred yards before coming up with a brigade (I think from Arkansas) at a halt. We passed it, obliquing somewhat to the left, and soon engaged the enemy. Six regiments of infantry were supporting a battery of four (4) guns; at least, in capturing the battery (which we did), six infantry regiments had representatives among the prisoners, besides the artillerists. In charging this battery it was t

ts elected by the people. A remarkable thing is, that all the Southern Presidents were re-elected by the people, except Mr. Polk, and he did not seek a renomination. This fact speaks volumes for the capacity of Southern men for the administration o the area of the Union by 58,680 square miles. Next came the annexation of Texas, under Tyler, and the Mexican war, under Polk, which added to the Union two huge States and four huge Territories and 855,410 square miles. These were notoriously Souton the west. Compare, ye English-speaking Americans, the United States which Jefferson found with the United States which Polk left, and then you will form some conception of the indebtedness of the nation to the Old South. Next came the purchase let us cry quits and stop talking about Jeff. Davis and the sour-apple tree, and talk rather of Jefferson, Monroe, Tyler, Polk and Johnson.
