r as we know, were never before in print. They will be read with interest, and will be received as a valuable contribution to the material for the future historian: Report of General Beauregard.Headquarters Department of South Carolina, Georgia and Florida, Charleston, S. C., March 25th, 1864. General,--In transmitting detailed reports of recent operations in East Florida, I have to accompany them, for the information of the War Department, with the following: The officer in obsere than twenty minutes, when the enemy suddenly gave back, apparently to seek a better position, but still held us at bay. Now the result of the day seemed doubtful. It was whispered down the lines (particularly in the Sixth and Thirtysecond Georgia regiments) that our ammunition was failing, and no ordnance train in sight. This I immediately reported to General Colquitt, who urged that we hold our ground, stating that our ammunition would certainly reach us directly. This, I am proud to

Origin of the banner of the Lone Star, and the Coat of arms of Texas. By John C. Butler, Macon, Ga. To the honor of one of the fairest daughters of Georgia is the State of Texas indebted for its peculiarly appropriate Coat of Arms — The Lone Star. The sympathies of many Southern cities were aroused in behalf of Texas in her sublic. The cries of our fellow-citizens of Texas, calling for help against the advancing and overwhelming forces of Santa Anna, the tyrant and oppressor, reached Georgia early in November, 1835. A public meeting of the citizens of Macon was held on November the 12th, and was addressed by several distinguished gentlemen in advocac, which then became the Coat-of-Arms of Texas. A public recognition of the first flag of the Lone Star as having been brought to Texas by Ward's battalion from Georgia was made by General Memucan Hunt, the first minister from the Republic of Texas to the United States. In February, 1845, a bill in favor of the annexation of T

with our hostess and her children, to all appearance a carefully tended guest. We encountered at this house a singular character in the person of a Mr. W----, of Georgia. Mr. or General W--, as he was called, was an old man, large, fat and shabbily dressed, but an expression of humor and good nature saved his countenance from beinvaluable, and exceedingly difficult and dangerous. He represented himself as already rich — the owner of a large cotton plantation in Mississippi, and another in Georgia--and doing his work neither for fame nor money, but solely to gratify his own peculiar tastes. Altogether old Mr. W----was a very mysterious character, much usede time, not amusing illustration was given in this little affair of the ignorance of some of our volunteer officers, when first engaged in actual warfare. This Georgia regiment, which had helped us out of our difficulties, was a magnificent body of men, but had been mustered into service within a few weeks only, and were now on

nd remained with it until some officer was fit for duty. He, too, gained his General's rank in Kentucky, or, very soon after, and following General Smith to the trans-Mississippi, won the affections of his men, it was said, in spite of strong natural prejudices, by the distinguished courage and judgment with which he led them in action. urgent remonstrances checked his pace, and the brave Nelson, of Columbus, who commanded a cavalry company of eighty young gentlemen of the best families of Georgia, which composed the escort, came up and begged to be let go. The much longed for permission was given, and Nelson and his splendid fellows dashed forward in gallant style into the very midst of the melee, and captured three hundred prisoners. The Federals were again driven from the field, and a gun captured, but they rallied and formed anew, and opened fire with their rifled guns, showing that although broken they were not yet entirely beaten. It was now 3 P. M., and our men had been ma

Captain Hazzard is descended from a military family, the first of whom, William Hazzard, was a colonel in the British army. His son, Major William Whig Hazzard, was in the Continental army, and wounded at the seizure of Savannah; while his own father was a Colonel in the United States army of the date of General Scott, with whom he served.

Commandant Federal Forces at South End: Sir — I have more than once been informed through your deserted allies, that the graves of our family and friends had been desecrated by your forces after the unsuccessful attempt to capture me some months ago. This rumor I could not believe, as the custom, even of the savage, has been to respect the home of the dead. But the sight I now behold convinces me of the truth of the report.

their position as public delegates, would exert great influence on the people at large, signed on 20th of October, 1774, certain articles of association termed by them the Non-Importation, Non-Consumption, and Non-Exportation agreement or association. I append some extracts from this agreement which contained fourteen articles. It commences-- We, his Majesty's most loyal subjects, the delegates of the several colonies of New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Connecticut, [naming all except Georgia, who sent no delegates,] deputed to represent them in a Continental Congress, held in the city of Philadelphia on the 5th day of September, 1774, avowing our allegiance to his Majesty, &c., &c.

After crossing the Rappahannock, a halt of a few days was made, after which the arty retired behind the Rapidan, about the 23d of March. The enemy having occupied Manassas, pushed out a reconnoissance under General Howard, which, about the 26th, had a small skirmish with Stuart holding the Rappahannock as a picket line, and then withdrew. Meanwhile, after considerable opposition from the President, who favored a direct advance upon Manassas, General McClellan had

the railroad, hoping thereby to draw Sherman out, leaving a portion of his army in Atlanta, and give Hood an opportunity of fighting him in detail. The movement was made, and in the main successful, except no opportunity was given for engaging Sherman's forces in detail. It was then resolved to move Hood's army into Tennessee and destroy Thomas and then take possession of Kentucky and threaten Ohio. The conception was a bold one. Its execution involved leaving a large Federal army in Georgia, which could march unobstructed to the sea, cutting again in twain the Confederacy, or it would move back and join Thomas, securing the destruction of Hood. It was at first determined to cross the Tennessee river above Decatur, but Forrest was near Jackson, Tennessee, and unacquainted with the plan of campaign, and on account of the swollen condition of the Tennessee river could not cross below Florence. So it was determined to cross the entire army at that point, and as soon as our com

rom any source, that my conduct at Spring Hill, on the 29th of November, 1864, or during the night of that day, was the subject of criticism, was the receipt of a note from General Hood, written and received on the morning of the 3d of December. This is the communication referred to in the letter of Governor Harris, above quoted. This note was read, so far as I know, by only four persons beside myself — my chief of staff, James D. Porter; Governor Isham G. Harris, Major J. F. Cummings, of Georgia, and John C. Burch. Not having been in the habit of carrying a certificate of military character, I attached no special value to the paper, and it was lost somewhere during the campaign in North Carolina. Governor Porter and Major Cummings agree with me that the following was the substance of the note: December 13, 1864. My Dear General: I do not censure you for the failure at Spring Hill. I am satisfied that you are not responsible for it. I witnessed the splendid manner in whic
