eginning as a private in the company, he was assigned to duty in the Medical Purveyor's office. From Charlotte he went with President Davis and his party to Abbeville, S. C., where the last Cabinet meeting was held. From that place the party repaired to Washington, Ga., where the Confederate Cabinet dispersed, Hon. John H. Reagaation kept up with Johnston's army and others, still in the field. When the truce between Johnston and Sherman expired, the line of march was taken up for Abbeville, S. C., and finally to Washington. Ga., where the closing scenes of the Confederate Government came on 4th May, 1865, with the winding up of the last remaining depstrength to meet, endure, and try to overcome the trials soon to come upon them, and with fatherly advice as to their action. And so it was all the way to Abbeville, S. C., where the whole town was thrown open to the party. And at Washington, Ga., where the bitter end was known to be reached, the welcome, though tearful, was

ey, after a long ride, which had tired men and horses, we reached Charlotte late in the afternoon, only to find that the President had gone to Yorkville, in South Carolina, thirty or thirty-five miles distant. I directed my escort to remain in Charlotte that night and to join me at Yorkville the next day. Taking a fresh horse, I left the former city at sunset and alone rode on, swimming the Catawba river in the night and reaching Yorkville at 2 A. M. the next day. The President had gone to Abbeville, thus again disappointing my hope of meeting him, but here I met you and I gave you a letter to the President, and asked you to endeavor to overtake the President as soon as possible. You left on this mission immediately, but failed in it, as did two of my couriers who were afterwards dispatched on the same errand. One mistake into which you were led is explained by the fact that I did reach Yorkville alone, but all of the men who had started with me joined me the next day, after you h

use was lost, the principles lived, and would reassert themselves at another and more favorable time. One morning when Mr. McCaleb went to him to express his fears about the condition of the Secretary of State, who was not an expert horseman, Mr. Davis said: Captain, do not trouble yourself about the Secretary of State, if one of us escapes it will be he. He could never forget the night when, with guns cocked, the company which he commanded rode behind the President's ambulance from Abbeville, S. C. to Washington, Ga., where they were expecting a dash of the Confederate Cavalry any moment. They crossed the Savannah river bright and early on the morning of May 6, 1865, and entered Washington, Ga., where they remained two days. Colonel Johnston instructed him to report with his men to the President, who wished to bid him good-by. He stated that he had determined to disband his escort, because a small body of men could more easily elude the vigilance of the enemy than a large on

She was ever quiet, but genial, hiding what suspense and anguish held her, making, unknowingly, great history for her State and for all time. The eldest son was Langdon Cheves Haskell, who served on the staff of General Maxey Gregg, later on the staff of General A. P. Hill, and surrendered at Appomattox as captain on the staff of Fighting Dick Anderson, of his own State. He married Miss Ella Wardlaw, of Abbeville, dying in 1886, and leaving three sons and one daughter, all adults. Charles Thompson Haskell was the second son, a captain in the First Carolina Regulars, and was killed on Morris Island when Gilmore landed to attack Charleston in July, 1863. He, happily, left no widow. The next was William Thompson Haskell. He was captain of Company H, First South Carolina volunteers, and died at the charge of that corps at Gettysburg while commanding under A. P. Hill. Alexander Cheves Haskell

o meet at Charleston to-morrow at 4 o'clock. The resolution caused debate. Mr. Miles appealed to the Convention not to adjourn to Charleston, but remain here regardless of small-pox or other physical or moral causes, and discharge the duties required by South Carolina. He urged that other States would jeer at our timidity in such a crisis, and the moral power of the present movement would be effected by other sympathizing States if we adjourn to Charleston. Mr. Cochrane, of Abbeville, said he would never consent to leave Columbia until the ordinance of secession had been passed. He urged members to stand up to all the responsibilities of their position, and remain to perfect their work. Mr. Keitt said that he was as ardently devoted to secession as any other man, and determined to be with the Convention until its action was complete, but urged an adjournment to Charleston. He said he would never consent to hurry through the proceedings of the Convention, and gav

The ladies of the Lower Battalion, in that District, tender their services to the volunteers to make clothes and do other work in furnishing an outfit for the company. The Palmetto Riflemen, of Greenville, have tendered their services to the Governor, and have been accepted. Four companies have been raised in Abbeville. Benjamin C. Rawley, of Spotsylvania, Va., aged 16 years, was on a visit to Petersburg, Va., when he heard of the occupation of Fort Sumter, and the probability of war against South Carolina. He immediately sent his horse home, and set out for Charleston, walking a great part of the way. On his arrival here, and the report of his intention, Colonel John S. Preston generously undertook to equip him, and he is now awaiting response from him to be enrolled as a recruit under Lieut. W. H
