Jackson moved slowly in the direction of Millwood, and early in December was ordered to rejoin Lee in the neighborhood of Fredericksburg. Here, in the action of the 13th, Pegram bore his usual part. Jackson, riding along the front of Lane and Archer, said curtly: They will attack here. On the right of that front, crowning the hills nearest Hamilton's Crossing, fourteen picked guns were posted by his order. These guns consisted of the batteries of Pegram and the intrepid McIntosh, of South Carolina, with a section each from the batteries of Crenshaw, Johnson and Latham. On the left were posted twenty-one guns, among them the Letcher Artillery—the whole commanded by Captain Greenlee Davidson of that battery. As the sun came bursting through the mist on that glorious morning, the army from its position looked down upon a scene which stirred the heart of conscript and veteran alike. Countless batteries, supported by serried masses of infantry, were moving in all the pride and ci

The Forty-sixth Georgia was already on the ground. The weather was intensely , but unfortunately I have forgotten their names.

Clingman's Brigade of North Carolina troops was added to the forcethat the act of the Legislature did not apply to the artillery or the Twenty-fifth, because, said the order, the State of South Carolina could never have intended to control the Confederate army.

e to the level of the highest tasks imposed upon it, solved all the problems of life, whether great or small, as they presented themselves, with infallible judgment lifted him to the summit of the profession of his choice and by the evenness, roundness and fullness of its development, left no doubt that, in any other sphere of human activity, it would have enabled him to achieve equal eminence. Bountiful nature had endowed him with exceptional gifts of physical beauty. The eye of the South Carolina poet, Hayne, once rested upon him in the first year of the war, when he was already on the hither verge of middle age, as he stood in the fortifications of Charleston, surrounded by officers, and he has left the following pen picture of him: In the middle of the group, topping the tallest by half a head, was, perhaps, the most striking figure we had ever encountered, the figure of a man seemingly about fifty-six or fifty-eight years of age, erect as a poplar, yet lithe and graceful, with

m respectively. They were of course entitled to immediate repossession of these places, essential to their defence in the exercise of their reassumed powers of war and peace, leaving all questions of mere property value apart for separate adjustment. In most cases the seceding States repossessed themselves of these places without difficulty; but in some the forces of the United States still kept possession. Among these last was Fort Sumter, in the harbor of Charleston, South Carolina. South Carolina in vain demanded the peaceful possession of this fortress, offering at the same time to arrange for the value of the same as property, and sent commissioners to Washington to treat with the Federal Government for the same, as well as for the recognition of her independence. But all her attempts to treat were repulsed or evaded, as likewise were those subsequently made by the Confederate Government. Of course the Confederacy could not continue to allow a foreign power to hold possession

I was in command of the Confederate steamship Palmetto State, one of the iron-clads of Flag-Officer Tucker's squadron at Charleston, when he received Commodore Lynch's letter, and as I had been executive officer of the Patrick Henry, the Flag-Officer requested me to give him my recollection of the principal events connected with that vessel. The letter which follows is my reply to that request. J. H. Rochelle. August 23, 1886. Confederate steamship Palmetto State, Charleston S. C., January 30, 1865. Flag-Officer John R. Tucker, Commanding Afloat at Charleston, S. C.. Dear Sir,—I am glad to learn from you that Commodore Lynch has been directed by the Department to prepare a narrative of the memorable and gallant deeds of the Confederate Navy; judging from the former works of the Commodore, I think we may congratulate ourselves that the navy has fallen into good hands, and feel confidence that the proposed book will not only be a valuable contribution to the history

oirs said that the fire was accidental, when he knew, from the letter of General Stone, who commanded the Provost Guard in Columbia, that the fire was not accidental. How much more he knew, he may in future Memoirs or statements reveal. Can any man imagine less moral character, less conception of truth, less regard for what an official report should contain, than is shown by Sherman deliberately concocting a falsehood for the dishonorable purpose of shaking the faith of the people of South Carolina in their fellow-citizen, General Wade Hampton? His election to be Governor of that State by the votes of a larger majority of her people of every race than was ever polled before or since; his elevation to the Senate of the United States, and the respect, admiration and regard which is shown to him, must be particularly vexing to the Shermans, and may have suggested to the General to hedge in his Memoirs and confess his wrong doing. Such an act of penance, if it brought true and genui

tion, yet he advocated a tariff for revenue, with incidental protection. He voted against the tariff of 1832, and sympathized deeply with the sufferings of South Carolina, but did not approve either the expediency or the principle of nullification; condemning also, in even severer terms, the principles enunciated in the celebrahome. Mr. Tyler may be considered a firm and decided Whig. In 1836, as a Whig candidate for the Vice-Presidency, he obtained the votes of Maryland, Georgia, South Carolina, and Tennessee. In 1838 he was a member of the Legislature from James City county, and fully cooperated with the Whig party. In relation to the Whig partyt Tyler, to observe that the joint resolutions, on his suggestion, were introduced into the House by J. L. Ingersoll, of Pennsylvania, and George McDuffie, of South Carolina, in the Senate. Thus it is shown, as appears also by the vote in each House, that it was based on a statesmanship above sectional or party considerations.

le, was the object of privation and abuse? Had it been a horse they would have been better able to judge, and would most probably have rejected the story for its improbability. Many attempts have been made to evade and misrepresent the exhaustive opinion of Chief-Justice Taney in the Dred Scott case, but it remains unanswered. From the statement in regard to Fort Sumter, a child might suppose that a foreign army had attacked the United States—certainly could not learn that the State of South Carolina was merely seeking possession of a fort on her own soil, and claiming that her grant of the site had become void. The tyrant's plea of necessity to excuse despotic usurpation is offered for the unconstitutional act of emancipation, and the poor resort to prejudice is invoked in the use of the epithet rebellion —a word inapplicable to States generally, and most especially so to the sovereign members of a voluntary union. But, alas for their ancient prestige, they have even lost t
