, his early army life, his connection with the Black-Hawk war, his service at Jefferson Barracks, his brilliant connection with the Texan revolution, his valuable services to the Republic of Texas, his career during the Mexican war, his civil life after the close of this war, his re-entering the United States army, his command of the Second cavalry, his Utah campaign, his service on the frontier, his resignation, his entering the Confederate army, his career in the West, his great victory at Shiloh, and his glorious death. The author makes an able and very judicious defence of the motives and principles of the leaders of the Confederacy, and gives avery valuable statement of the relative numbers and resources of the North and the South. His account of the Fort Donelson campaign and of the battle of Shiloh seems fuller and more accurate than any that has yet appeared. Indeed, the book is a very valuable contribution to the history of the first year of the Confederacy. It is a pr

proposed. It gives me great pleasure to meet on this occasion the comrades and friends of Lee and Jackson — honored alike by the survivors of the Army of Northern Virginia and of the Army of Tennessee--names destined to live for all time to come. It is pleasant to me, as a representative of the Army of Tennessee, to tell you how sincerely the survivors of that army cherish and revere the names and memories of their great commanders. They feel a just pride that on the historic field of Shiloh they were led by that great commander Albert Sidney Johnston, a man whose life was one long sacrifice to conscience, and even that life on a woeful Sabbath did he yield as a holocaust at his country's need. They point with pride to the heroic Bishop--General Leonidas Polk, who, as citizen, clergyman, general, was without fear and without reproach. They remember the devotion of the brave, patriotic and indefatigable General Braxton Bragg. All of these now sleep the sleep that knows no wa
