ummerville within twenty-five miles of Rome. From Caperton's ferry there is a road leading over Sand mountain into Wills's valley at Trenton, and from Trenton to Lafayette and Dalton, over Lookout mountain, through Cooper's and Stevens's gaps, into McLemore's cove, and over Pigeon mountain by Dug gap. The road from Trenton, following Will's valley, exposed by easy communications, Rome, and through it Western Georgia and Eastern Alabama, with easy access to the important central positions, Atlanta and Selma. The General commanding believing a flanking movement to be the purpose of the enemy in his movements on the left, ordered Lieutenant-General Hill on Monday, September 7th, to move with his corps to Lafayette, and General Polk to Lee and Gordon's mill, and Major-General Buckner, with the Army of East Tennessee, and Major-General Walker, with his division from the Army of Mississippi, to concentrate at Lafayette, and Brigadier-General Pegram to cover the railroad with his cavalr

t during the march through South Carolina, in which Sherman burned Columbia, the following towns in South Carolina were burned in whole or in part by his troops, without there being any cotton in them to give a colouring to a charge against the Confederates of having committed the vandalism: Robertville, Grahamsville, McPhersonville, Blackville, Barnwell, Orangeburg, Lexington, Winsboro, Camden, Lancaster, Chesterfield, Cheraw, Darlington, Charleston. In November, 1864, Sherman destroyed Atlanta and Rome, Ga. Had I the material at hand I would not ask that another should work up this interesting page in our Confederate war; but I am too far from the archives. I hope some of the facile writers who have added to your pages and who have the archives near by, may tell us how many more towns were burned by the Federal forces and the circumstances of the destruction of all that thus fell into the hands of the enemy.

we. After remaining three or four days in Danville, we proceeded to Greensboro, N. C.; remained there a few days, and leaving about $40,000 of the silver there, moved to Charlotte. Staid there nearly a week, and went to Chester, S. C., thence to Newbury, and thence to Abbeyville, where we remained a few days, and then moved to Washington, Ga., where we took the cars for Augusta. We reached the Georgia railroad at Barnett's station, and I there met friends returning from the vicinity of Atlanta who informed me that they had seen in the Federal papers that Generals Sherman and Johnston had agreed upon an armistice. I immediately communicated the information to Captain Parker, and assured him of my confidence in the reliability of the report, and my conviction that it would end in General Johnston's surrender, and that a complete collapse of the Confederacy would immediately follow, and as soon as this became known Confederate money would become valueless, and the thousands of peop

rs, tender memories are awakened in our hearts — memories of men whose hearts were knit to ours in the camp, the march, the bivouac, the siege and the battle. And as Shiloh, and Murfreesboro, and Chickamauga, and Chattanooga, and Vicksburg, and Atlanta, and Franklin, and Nashville, and Mansfield, and Pleasant Hill, pass before us, familiar forms and faces appear instinct with the life and bright with the light that was the strength and the joy of those camping and campaigning days. And some o remember how, the day after, as their chaplain, with Scripture and prayer, I buried seventy of the best and bravest of my brigade, placed side by side in the long trenches that were their common grave. And that fight at Peach Tree Creek, above Atlanta, where, of our 1,230 that went in, but 650 came out. Ah! how often, as we entered those fields of slaughter, looking along our devoted ranks, the pathos and power of those lines, in which a master of words commemorates Waterloo, thrilled my sou

Editorial paragraphs. General Fitz Lee's visit to Tee South has been postponed until the early autumn by the severe illness of his wife's mother. Our kind friends at Atlanta, Augusta, Savannah, Charleston, &c., were preparing to give our gallant friend an ovation, and to make his tour a great success for the Society. But we are sure that they will appreciate the necessity for the delay, and will be equally ready to greet General Fitz in the autumn. Memorial day seems to have been observed this year all through the South with even more than usual enthusiasm. Large crowds, brilliant speeches and sweet music have added to the interest of the occasion, while fair hands have strewn with choicest flowers the graves of our heroic dead. We regret that our space forbids us even the briefest notice of the many reports of these services which we have received (and we are always glad to receive and preserve them), but we may say that we are gratified to find that the general t

Cox, Ex-Governor of Ohio; late Secretary of the Interior of the United States; Major General U. S. V., etc. We have received from the publishers (Charles Scribner's Sons), through West & Johnston, Richmond, these two volumes, which constitute 8 and 9 of the uniform series they are bringing out. Reserving them for future review by some competent hand, we can only say now that these volumes should have a place in our libraries as giving the Federal side of the story, told by active participants. But each successive volume only gives renewed emphasis to our previously expressed opinion that if the Messrs. Scribner really desire to publish valuable material for the future historian, then they must brin

It is a remarkable fact that while the male natives of the South have ceased to bear animosity toward the grim old warrioe went out of his way to exercise heartless cruelty. Sherman ordered the women and children in Atlanta to leave their homes within five days. The Mayor of the city appealed to Sherman for mercy, repsigned to meet the humanities of the case. At the end of five days the women and children of Atlanta were expelled from their houses and driven from the city, and before they had passed into the Ceen permitted to take with them. The Commercial complains that Sherman was not banquetted at Atlanta. Had Sherman possessed the decency of a well-bred dog, he would never have shown himself in AtAtlanta after the atrocities he there committed. A Northern view of the Prison Question. Colonel John F.

He meant to destroy Atlanta before he left it, and he must first get rid he effect that all the inhabitants must leave Atlanta, the people were appalled. The city was over bare-handed and without means. If they left Atlanta where could they go to, and how subsist? Thaauthor writes: We then deliberately destroyed Atlanta. It was deliberate.

appropriate tribute to the memory of this gallant soldier and distinguished citizen. In response to calls General Fitz Lee, Colonel R. E. Withers, and General Wm. Smith made stirring speeches. The officers of last year were unanimously re-elected. General Fitzhugh Lee expects to leave Richmond on Monday, November the 13th, to meet engagements to repeat, for the benefit of the Society, his superb lecture on Chancellorsville at Darlington, November 14th, Charleston, November, 16th, Atlanta, November 18th, Savannah, November 22d, Augusta, November 24th, and Rome, November 28th. Returning home from this latter point for a few days, General Lee will then repeat his lecture in Montgomery, Mobile, New Orleans, Galveston, and other points in Texas. We doubt not that our friends everywhere will appreciate this labor of love, and give our gallant friend, General Fitz, a royal greeting wherever he may go, while we can assure those who may be so fortunate as to hear him, that they

on the steamer closed a charming day, and after adieus to our kind friends, and further delicate courtesies from Captain Dawson and his good wife, we were off for Atlanta. Our printers warn us that our space is now very limited, and we can barely allude to much that we had purposed saying. We received many courtesies from friends in Atlanta, were elegantly entertained at the Kimbal House by mine hosts Scoville and Terry, and General Lee had a very appreciative audience to hear his lecture. In Savannah we had another grand ovation; but we will be compelled to post-pone, until our next, a notice of that, and of a number of points of historic interest has just sent us a list of subscribers from Savannah, which is, we trust, an earnest of many more to follow. It was a great pleasure to have the Major with us in Atlanta and Savannah on our recent tour, and to know personally the accomplished gentleman who represents us in these States. Colonel H. D. Capers has just entered
