giment. By bold raids into the enemy's country in 1863, he recruited his colored regiment. He was a man of austere bearing, cool, deliberate, and of proved courage. In personal appearance he was tall, spare, rather bowed, with gentle voice and quiet manner. After his resignation in September, 1864, he returned to Kansas, and died there in December, 1871. Colonel Montgomery, with five companies of his regiment, on June 6, had made an expedition from St. Simon's up the Turtle River to Brunswick and beyond, and destroyed a span of the railroad bridge over Buffalo Creek. Quartermaster Ritchie issued A and wall tents to the Fifty-fourth on June 10; and all were at work pitching camp and clearing the ground, when a steamer came to the wharf. Colonel Montgomery was on board, and hailing Colonel Shaw from the deck, said, How soon can you be ready to start on an expedition?Colonel Shaw replied, In half an hour, and at once caused the long-roll to be sounded. Hurried preparations were

for the colonies is only second to his love of England-He balances the advantages and disadvantages of North and South, and of Philadelphia, New York, and Boston. At Prince-town he finds a handsome school and college for the education of dissenters, erected upon the plan of those in Scotland, with about twenty boys in the grammar-school, and sixty in the college. There are only two professors, besides the provost. He sees beautiful homes along the Raritan River, and handsome ladies at Brunswick ; but the people of Rhode Island are cunning, deceitful, and selfish though he adds: After having said so much to the disadvantage of this colony, I should be guilty of injustice and ingratitude, were I not to declare that there are many worthy gentlemen in it, who see the misfortunes of their country, and lament them. The lower classes at Boston are insufferably inquisitive; yet Arts and Sciences seem to have made a greater progress here than in any other part of America. By 1798 Burnab

s poetry no better expression of this than in The Symphony. Nature was to him almost equally dear, and even more Southern in its appeal. He found nothing within to answer to the wild and rugged majesty of the mountains. He felt no expansion of the soul in viewing the limitless plains of Texas. The broad sand-flats of Florida roused only a longing for the Georgia hills. Indeed, the only scene which called forth a love of broad, free places was the long and often viewed marshes at Brunswick, Georgia, which will go down in American literature in the eloquent and musical Marshes of Glynn. It remains true, however, that his love for nature was a delicate and passionate love, the love of an attentive and scrupulous observer of leaves and plants and the thousand minute details of the summer woods. So personal was the solace and uplifting of nature that he addressed her various forms with terms of endearment, more warm than Tabb, yet precisely like St. Francis of Assisi. He sings of

of his countrymen. He had not gained high rank speedily during his service, but his ability, as well as his modesty, was recognized by General Lee as well as by the people, and it was generally understood that a major-general's commission would in a measure have rewarded his services if the war had not come to a sudden close. In civil life, during the years of peace which followed, he was conspicuous as general superintendent of the Wilmington & Manchester railroad, later of the Macon & Brunswick, and finally of the State road of Georgia, now known as the Western & Atlantic. His intense application to the duties of these positions wrecked his strength, and he died at Augusta, Ga., February 1, 1882, at the age of forty-seven years.

y organized in Effingham by Capt. P. H. Stanton, and desiring immediate active service, he resigned his commission before that company was mustered in, and enlisted as a private in a company organized in Bryan county, which became Company D of the Twenty-fifth Georgia regiment. This regiment was on coast duty at Fort Pulaski and Tybee islands, at Port Royal, at Charleston, and Sullivan's and James' islands, at Wilmington, N. C., on Masonboro sound, and protected the coast as far down as Brunswick, Ga. This subject became a corporal in 1861, was soon promoted to first sergeant and in 1863 was made second lieutenant. His regiment was part of the division led by Gen. W. H. T. Walker to Mississippi during the Vicksburg campaign, and was subsequently under the division command of that lamented officer. He participated in the fighting at Jackson, Miss., under C. C. Wilson as brigade commander, in the battle of Chickamauga, where his regiment opened the infantry fighting, and after which h

ch military force as he deemed necessary. On September 25th Secretary Benjamin telegraphed Lawton it was believed the enemy's naval expedition was intended for Brunswick, and that the Bartow artillery had been ordered to Savannah. Lawton replied: I can do nothing for want of arms, unless I hold those now landing from steamer Ber be turned over to Lawton. At this time the latter had an aggregate present of about 3,000 men, at sixteen posts, the most important of which were Tybee island, Brunswick, Camp Lawton, Savannah, Fort Pulaski, Sapello island and Fort Screven. On October 26th the military department of Georgia was created, and General Lawton was puuding the coasts of South Carolina, Georgia and east Florida. General Lawton's defensive force now consisted of about 2,000 men under General Mercer, at and near Brunswick, and about 3,500 north of the Altamaha and generally near Savannah. About 500 of his command were cavalry, very well mounted and armed, and the remainder includ

from Richmond. In order to concentrate his resources for defense, General Lee authorized General Mercer, in command at Brunswick, to remove the batteries from St. Simon's and Jekyl islands, if he considered those positions difficult to maintain, and forward the heavy guns to Savannah. It appeared that there were now no inhabitants at Brunswick, and the planters on the island had removed their property to the interior. On February 16th General Mercer reported that he had moved the guns and was shipping them to Savannah and Fernandina. The Fourth Georgia battalion was then stationed at Brunswick, as was also Col. Cary W. Styles' command, the Twenty-sixth regiment, but both were at once withdrawn. General Mercer also urged that he be given orders to burn the town of Brunswick, for the moral effect it would produce upon the enemy, as evidencing our determination to continue the present contest with unconquerable determination and at every sacrifice. At this critical moment, w
