s of the government, presumably for their own convenience for supplies, guards and facility for keeping. In the South prisons were located at Americus, Ga., Camp Sumter, Andersonville, Ga.; Atlanta, Ga.; Augusta, Ga.; Blackshear, Ga.; Cahaba, Ala.; Camp Lawton, Millen, Ga.; Camp Oglethorpe, Macon, Ga.; Charleston, S. C.; Florence, S. C.; Columbia, S. C.; Charlotte, N. C.; Salisbury, N. C.; Raieigh, N. C.; Danville, Va.; Richmond, Va.; Belle Isle, Castle Thunder, Crews, Libby, Pemberton's, Scott's, Smith's Factory. The supposition is likewise that these places were selected for the convenience of the Confederate government for purposes of safety from raids for the release of prisoners and for proper care of prisoners. The prison at Andersonville, called Camp Sumpter, was the most noted of all the Confederate prisons. In this prison there were more Union prisoners and more suffering than in any other prison in the Confederate States. There Captain Henry Wirz was in command, a

ion. Then we were marched back to camp, late on a cold, blustering evening. About this time a man who was a Scotchman, McFarland, spare-built, and appeared to be about thirty-five years of age, who told us that he had been a soldier for sixteen years; first in England, and lately in the United States army, was sent down to us as drill-master, and began to teach us our facing, and the manual of arms, according to Hardee (Lieutenant Wilson had taught some of us the year before according to Scott), and after we had made some progress, we acted as provost guard in Manchester for about ten days. Then we proceeded to erect good, two-room frame houses for quarters, and had occupied some of them, when, on the 17th day of March, with drums beating and colors flying, accompanied with all our impediments, we were marched along the turnpike, down to Drewry's Bluff, on the Noble James river, about seven miles below Richmond, and bivouacked at the future Gibraltar that night, grumbling about t

Beauvoir, Harrison County, Miss., 6th December, 1882. General M. J. Wright; My Dear Sir,—Col. Scott kindly offered to send me the published volumes of the official records, and I replied by accebeen practiced, I desire to learn the facts of the case. I did not feel willing to write to Colonel Scott about this matter, and, therefore, trouble you, as one of the family of C. S. A. Ever truly your friend, Jefferson Davis.

eld for a similar purpose. They were unobserved by Captain Sturdivant, and were entirely unsuspected by him. On Sturdivant's return from Cherry Grove, he suddenly, and to his amazement, ran into the forces under Captain Lee, at Six Oaks, near Scott's Factory, about four miles from Smithfield. A slight engagement ensued. The result of it was, Lee fell back to Smithfield, and Sturdivant went on his way, westwardly, to Ivor. In going to Ivor he passed right by my brother's farm—Four Squmember of Captain Nat. A. Sturdivant's battery of Artillery, but was not present at Smithfield; was with those who went to Cherry Grove the day before, and as Mr. Rodgers expressed the wish that some one would give an account of the engagement at Scott's Factory, and as all of our commissioned officers are now dead, this account if given at all must be by some other of those present. I cannot give the names of other captains of companies engaged, nor the number of the North Carolina Regiment

re nobly respond to the call of duty? * * * *For gallant conduct on that fatal day, Colonel Hunton, who had been sorely wounded, was made a brigadier-general. Its field officers, at different periods, were: Eppa Hunton, Colonel; Charles B. Tebbs, Lieutenant-Colonel; Edmund Berkeley, Major, Lieutenant-Colonel; Norbourne Berkeley, Major, Lieutenant-Colonel; William A. Berkeley, Major; James Thrift, Major. Its Captains were: Edmund Berkeley, of Prince William; Richard Henry Carter and R. Taylor Scott, of Fauquier; James Thrift, of Fairfax; and Henry Heaton, Alexander Grayson, William N. Berkeley, M. Wample, Hampton; and Simpson, of Loudoun. The other company officers and privates will have a proud place in the Virginia Roster, now being compiled for publication. Only about three hundred of the Federals surrendered to Colonel Featherston, but many others were huddled along the river bank and in the woods, hoping to escape later in the night.

lie Bruce, one of the large family of that name in Halifax and Charlotte counties. Her sister, Ellen, another famous belle of the Old Dominion in the palmy days, was married to James M. Morson, and lived on the adjoining plantation, Dover, one of the most aristocratic homesteads in Virginia. Many of Richmond's inner circle enjoyed the famous social gatherings here, where the society was as delightful as that which adorned the literary circles of the British metropolis in the golden age of Scott, Coleridge, Moore, and Leigh Hunt. Mr. Morson and his brother-in-law, Mr. Seddon, each owned several sugar plantations in Louisiana, besides cotton lands in Mississippi. Just half a mile distant was another typical old Virginia residence, Eastwood, owned by Mr. Plumer Hobson, whose wife was the accomplished daughter of Governor Henry A. Wise. Eastwood was one of the most delightful homes imaginable and the abode of refinement and hospitality. Mr. Hobson paid $2,500 for Tom, one of the

If the South is to become a commercial tributary of the North, all, it is to look to the North for the of lie children, it is a subject and province, and nothing more nor the matter by what mocking name of it is deluded. war will it require to wean this people from dependence upon the North? --Because it should last forever, than that the problem blood already shed should have been shed in vain. We have no reason to fear the North in war. But when the army of bayonets converted by peace into an army of intruders, the structure of Southern independence will be subjected to a test more severe and terrible than any which Scott or are able to apply. As soon as this war be ever a Northern of salesmen will ever run the land, or home here to live and vote down our liberties at the polls. If we do not make provision in our laws to prevent these objects, Southern independence is an idle dream.
