disloyalty entertained to the Union per se, by the Southern people—this fact ought never to be lost sight of. In all of the Gulf States, with the exception of Louisiana, the State Democratic conventions had instructed their delegates to withdraw from the Charleston Convention in default of the insertion of a clause in the platfoutional rights were granted to them. His speech was applauded to the echo. When the National Convention met on the following Monday the delegates from Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, Florida, and South Carolina had come to an agreement to withdraw if the platform did not embrace the clause respecting slavery demanded byatform and announced the withdrawal of the delegation. As it retired there was applause from the delegates who were soon to withdraw. The Mississippi, Florida, Louisiana, Arkansas, Texas and South Carolina delegations read protests and withdrew in succession from the convention. Then scattering delegates from other Southern Stat

A paper read before the Louisiana Association of the army of Northern Virginia, February 18, 1893, by Captain John W. T. Leech, Company C, Fourteenth regiment, Louisiana infantry, Confederate States army. Comrades of the Army of Northern Virginia. In writing of the thrilling events which took place around the city of Richmond in 1862, you will bear in mind that thirty-one years have rolled by and that a man's memory, however good, must necessarily have forgotten many things which would prove very interesting if they could be recalled. But the truth of the matter is, I am growing old, and those scenes are rapidly fading away. I wore the gray then, and as the battle of life progresses I am wearing more gray, and this will continue on until that arch enemy of mankind will flank me out of every position and compel a

Battle echoes from Shiloh. [from the New Orleans, La., Picayune, October 1, 1893.] Misty traditions that Fade before the lights of history. Veterans who fight their battles over again at Jolly Reunions—The narrative Northern and the narrative Southern—Battery a, of the Chicago Light Artillery, and the Fifth Company of the Washington Artillery, of Louisiana. The Picayune of Sunday, September 17, 1893, under the heading of The Northern Narrative, published an extract from the Chicago Evening Post, giving an account of the annual reunion of the Chicago Light Artillery, Battery A, First Illinois Artillery. As at all reunions of old soldiers, a high old time was had, and battles were fought over and discussed with infinite enjoyment. On this occasion, it appears, the Washington Artillery, of New Orleans, came in for a good share of remembrance, for the account says: The boys have plenty to talk about as they get to recalling old times. They discussed their famo

tion. Now, sanding the decks to catch the blood yet unspilled was not a very assuring procedure, in view of the tremendous odds which confronted us. The Tennessee was a screw propeller, and went into commission with about one hundred men, a company of marines with the following officers: Franklin Buchanan, Admiral; James W. Johnston, Virginia, Captain; William L. Bradford, Alabama, Executive officer; Wharton and Benton, of Tennessee and Kentucky, First and Second Lieutenants; Perrin, of Louisiana, Master; Sinning, Chief Engineer; D. G. Raney, Marine Officer, of Florida; Conrad and Bowles, Surgeon and Assistant, of Virginia. Her battery consisted of ten-inch rifle Brooke guns, two fore and aft, three broadside, eight in all; her armor was six inches of iron over fourteen inches of solid timber, held together with two-inch iron bolts. She was constructed something after the order of the old Merrimac, but much stronger; her sharp iron prow would have been formidable as a ram, b

lth soon broke down in the ministry. An interval of foreign travel was followed by years in which Polk was as much a farmer as a clergyman. Then came the appointment as missionary bishop of the Southwest, and later the care of the diocese of Louisiana. These not only satisfied his religious aspirations, but met the physical necessity for a life in the open air. His field of labor was almost boundless, and his travels were incessant. But his diocesan tasks are of interest here mainly because at the outset they included territory which was not a part of the United States. Churchmen, and doubtless others, will remember the position assumed by Bishop Polk at the time of Louisiana's secession respecting the relations of his diocese to the Protestant Episcopal Church of the United States. He held that the constitution of the Church limited it to the boundaries of the nation. If by any accident the nation lost control of any region, the churchmen of that region became independent of
