the organization, showing how it was organized on April 18, 1896, by four ladies, Mrs. Jefferson Davis Weir, Mrs. S. J. Fowler, Mrs. M. A. Farwood and herself. The charter was drafted by Colonel L. P. Briant, Mrs. Weir having been appointed a committee of one to attend to that important detail. Mrs. Varina Jefferson Davis is an honorary member of the chapter. The programme was very beautiful. Miss Florence Huberwald sang, as only Miss Huberwald could, that grand old Southern war song, Maryland, My Maryland. The tears coursed silently down the eyes of many as her beautiful voice rose and fell in exquisite modulation of the patriotic melody. The feature of the celebration was the eloquent address of Hon. E. Howard McCaleb. Mr. McCaleb said that he would not attempt, on this ninety-third anniversary of the birth of Mr. Davis, to give even a brief outline of a life and character which are so intimately interwoven with the history of the country, but rather to recall a few person

d. The dedication of the monument to Mrs. Bradley T. Johnson was the leading feature of Memorial Day at Baltimore, June 6. The Baltimore Sun says of it: The day was also the anniversary of the battle of Harrisonburg, where soldiers of the Maryland Line distinguished themselves. Mrs. Johnson's grave and the monument which now marks the spot were profusely decorated, red roses predominating. Over two thousand people gathered to assist in the exercises. The members of the Maryland Line, iMaryland Line, including about eighty veterans from the Soldiers' Home, at Pikesville, formed a line at the main entrance of the cemetery and marched to the lot, headed by the Fifth Regiment Veteran Corps Band, under the leadership of W. H. Pindell. Friends of the dead and members of the Daughters of the Confederacy had previously strewn flowers over all the graves. Capt. G. W. Booth presided at the exercises, and read this appreciative sketch of Mrs. Johnson's life: Again we are assembled in this be

Justice was to preside at the trial and that he could not be present until the first Tuesday in October, to which day the cause was adjourned. On the 7th of June, 1866, Messrs. Charles O'Conor, of New York; Mr. Thomas G. Pratt, ex-Governor of Maryland, representing Mr. Davis; and Mr. Speed, the Attorney-General, representing the Government, waited on Chief-Justice Chase at his residence to ascertain whether he would entertain a motion to release Mr. Davis on bail. The Chief-Justice, without made by Mr. O'Conor and others, there was behind the scenes some adverse influence which was too powerful to be overcome, which Mr. O'Conor believed emanated from the Secretary of State, W. H. Seward. When Mr. Reverdy Johnson, the senator from Maryland, applied to Seward to help him in the effort to secure bail, Seward pointed to the scar on his neck, made by the knife of the assassin, and said: You can hardly expect me to aid you.

en, S. C., but a single one—a New Jersey regiment—was from the Middle States. All the rest were from the West. A letter (he says) from the only Thomas J. Myers ever in the army would never contain such a phrase, referring to the fact that Myers had said this stolen jewelry, &c., would be scattered all over the North and Middle States. Sherman's statement of the organization of his army on this march shows there were several regiments in it from New York and Pennsylvania, besides one from Maryland and one from New Jersey (all four Middle States). But we think this, like other reasons assigned by Colonel Stone, are without merit. But, as we have said, notwithstanding all these things which seemingly discredit the reasons assigned by Colonel Stone for the non-genuineness of this letter, we should not have used the letter in this report, had not the substantial statements in it been confirmed, as we shall now see. The Myers' letter was first published on October 29, 1883. On the 31

The Daughters of the Confederacy in Maryland held a popular and successful bazaar in the Fifth Regimenedged by all intelligent and fair-minded men and women in Maryland, as elsewhere. Young men and maidens, old men and childrrs were held in the same place by the same noble women of Maryland in 1885 and 1898, to supply the means to provide for indigent and worthy Confederates in Maryland, who hail from all parts of the South, the proceeds of those two bazaars being collappropriated $100,000 for like purpose.

Arms for Maryland. Maryland. In response to this appeal, Governor Letcher, of Virginia, sent the following telegram on April 22d: Major-il of the State of Virginia agreed to loan the State of Maryland 5,000 more arms from the arsenal at Lexington,ith a royal welcome from those gallant sons of old Maryland whom I afterwards learned to admire for their solduls. I was escorted to the Institute, where the Maryland Line was quartered; then to Holliday street, whereve been fought there.

Jeb. Stuart lost his life in Recapturing a borrowed Maryland Battery. General Bradley T. Johnson, the distinguished Maryland exCon-federate, writes to the Sun as follows, giving some hitherto unpublished military dispatches connected with the operations of Maryland troops in the battles around Richmond in 1864: Among your collection of unpublished military dispatches you may include these two, which have never been printed. In October, 1863, I was ordered by General Lee to assemble the Maryland Line, then in separate commands in the Army of Northern Virginia—except the Latrobe Battery, which was with the Army of the Southwest —at Hanover Junction, to guard the five long, high bridges there, over the North Anna, the South Anna, and W. Scott Chew; the Third Maryland Artillery. Latrobe's Battery served in the west, and was never in my command. The Maryland Line, thus gotten together, was the largest collection of Marylanders who ever fought under the gold and black. Our dut

Regiment, Virginia Cavalry, Gary's Brigade, Army of Northern Virginia. Colonel Marshall's reply. Baltimore, June 5, 1901. Spotswood Bird, Esq., Late Private, Company F, Twenty-fourth Regiment, Virginia Cavalry: dear Sir,—I have received your communication of May 23d, and herewith return, as requested, my reply. The subject of your letter is one that is entirely covered, I think, by my address delivered before the Society of the Army and Navy of the Confederate States in the State of Maryland on January 19, 1894, which I inclose to you and of which you may make such use as you deem proper. You will perceive from the address that the circumstances attending the meeting between General Grant and General Lee on April 9, 1865, did not call for any demand on the part of General Grant for the surrender of General Lee's sword on that occasion and that any statement, however made and by whomsoever made to the effect that General Lee made the tender of the surrender of his sword to
