The life of a private soldier is not an enviable one, and I intend to do what I may to relieve and cheer the brave men who have by their votes promoted me from their ranks. Our former Captain, R. F. Ligon and Lieutenants Geo. Jones and Zuber, returned to Alabama. April 29. This day twelve months ago I was assigned to duty as 2nd lieutenant in the Provisional Army of the Confederate States. To-day we are hurriedly notified that General Hooker, the successor of the unsuccessful Burnsides, has effected a landing near Fredericksburg, and Rodes' old brigade, under Colonel E. A. Neal of 26th Alabama is ordered to meet them. My duties as acting quartermaster, (Aqm,) require me to have several wagons loaded with officers' baggage, Q.

ce the proceeds in England pending the issue; this he indignantly refused to do and forbade any further remark on the subject, saying: Rather than exhibit such a want of faith in Southern success, and so weaken the faith of others, I will cheerfully submit to the loss of all the property I possess should the North eventually triumph. When the war had ended and the planters on the coast had no resources with which to commence their planting operations, Colonel Colcock proposed that the United States goverment issue to the planters on credit the large supplies which had been prepared for the Union soldiers on the coast. This was done, and it enabled many to start planting who would otherwise have had no resources. Eventually the debts were cancelled, as the crops were all lost. After his second marriage, Colonel Colcock entered commercial life in Charleston as a member of the cotton firm of Fackler, Colcock & Co., which did a large business, receiving cotton from North Alabama

As he was on duty watching papers of the Confederate Government until December, 1865, he never gave his parole. His commission as Acting Treasurer of the Confederacy bore the last official signature of the President of the Confederate States. The commission is now on deposit at the Confederate Museum here. All the gold and silver bonds and contents of the Treasury were turned over to the Acting Treasurer, without bond being required of him. President Davis honored Mr. Clark w

William Henry Trescot, in his eloquent eulogy on General Stephen Elliott, thus alludes to it: Early in November, 1861, the greatest naval armament the United States had ever put to sea was collected in the waters of Port Royal. It is strange now to think that with a year's warning, with full knowledge of the danger, the only resistance to this tremendous power was left to two earthworks, two miles apartpliment was named for Dr. James C.

brilliant and animated, the latter a classic—a prose poem attuned to a minor key. The solemn warnings to the unconverted, the prophetic words of wisdom to the church, and the gracious words of sympathy and consolation that have fallen from his lips, can never, never be forgot. Notable, too, have been those mournful addresses, like sobbing threnodies, delivered with almost measured cadence, on the occasion of state funerals. The last address of this character was made over the bier of United States Senator Vance, in the Senate chamber. President Cleveland and his Cabinet attended the obsequies, and some time afterwards the President spoke of Dr. Hoge's perfect taste and profoundly impressive style as a funeral orator. Among his more lofty and elaborate orations, the one which will probably live longest on the printed page and in the memory of those who heard it, was that on Stonewall Jackson, delivered to a throng at the unveiling of the bronze monument in Capitol Square in 1875.
