that battery took in the late war. I would like to give, through the medium of your paper, a correct version of the matter in a few words. The Third Maryland Battery was mustered into the Confederate States service January 14, 1862, at Richmond, Va., and was ordered to Knoxville, East Tennessee, February 4, 1862. Under General E. Kirby Smith it went into Kentucky, August, 1862. After the return of General Smith to Tennessee the battery was sent to Vicksburg, Miss., arriving there Januas., where, under General R. Taylor, May 4, 1865, the battery was surrendered and the men paroled. The commanders during the war were: Captain Henry B. Latrobe, left service March 1, 1863; Captain Fred. O. Claiborne, killed at Vicksburg, June 24, 1863; Captain John B. Rowan, killed at Nashville, December 16, 1864; Captain William L. Ritter. William L. Ritter, Surviving Captain Third-Maryland Artillery, afterwards Stephens's Light Artillery. [From the Richmond, Va., Dispatch, August 5, 1894.]

Causes of the War. Great speech of Hon. Joseph Wheeler, of Alabama. Slavery and States rights. [from the Richmond, Va., Dispatch, July 31, 1894.] Opposition of the Southern colonists to slavery, and their devotion to the Union—Advocates of secession. On Friday, July 13th, 1894, the House of Representatives being in Committee of the Whole, on appropriations and expenditures, and having under consideration the bill to remove the charge of desertion standing against Patrick Kelleher, late private, Company C, Thirty-eighth Illinois Volunteers, Mr. Wheeler, of Alabama, as a member of the Committee on Military Affairs, made a speech which has since attracted wide-spread attention. The discussion, which became animated, led up to the causes of the late war and its immense expenditures, and Mr. Wheeler brought out some startling historical facts. He said: I did not intend or desire to enter into any discussion about the war, but in reply to the question of the distinguished g

the equal valor of the Federals made the issue doubtful, he looked on calmly, but when Deering fell he rushed into the conflict with what seemed a spirit of deathless devotion. He could do little execution, but on he rode past the forefront right into the ranks of the enemy. The Federal line gave way, but still, broken into squads and retreating into the woods, they continued to fight, and it was in the midst of one of these squads that Major Thomson was last seen. Wm. Bronaugh, of Manchester, Va., then a private in Chew's Battery, helped to convey his body from the field, and said that his clothes were pierced with bullet holes, and that he was wounded in seven places. Before his death he had often expressed a wish to be buried by the side of Ashby. It was in accordance with this wish that his body was removed from Charlottesville and placed here. And, here I may be pardoned for saying of him what was said of Hotspur, whom he much resembled, That nothing in his life so much

Company a, Fifteenth Virginia Infantry, Confederate States Army. A valuable Annotated roll of that organization from Richmond, Virginia. The subjoined very complete roll of Company A, Fifteenth Virginia Regiment, was prepared by Captain M. W. Hazlewood, who would be glad to be advised of any mistakes in it. It will be observed that Captain Hazlewood accounts for nearly all the men who enlisted in his company, and his work furnishes valuable suggestions to others who may be preparing material in aid of the movement to secure a complete roster of the Virginia troops in the Confederate army. When copies of the rolls in the War Records Office at Washington shall have been secured, such private rolls as Captain Hazlewood has made will prove very valuable in revising and annotating them. The company was mustered into service April 23, 1861, by Inspector-General John B. Baldwin. It was recruited on Church Hill, and assigned by Colonel Baldwin to the Thirty-third Regiment of Lig

Women of the South. Col. W. R. Aylett's address before Pickett Camp [from the Richmond, Va., Star, July 21, 1894.] In behalf of a Monument to the women of the Southern Confederacy. The following eloquent and touching address was delivered by Colonel William R. Aylett before Pickett Camp of Confederate Veterans, in Richmond, on the evening of July 2, 1894. A fitting memorial in this our City of Monuments to the sublime devotion of our noble women, is assured in the pledge of the Richmond Howitzers, and will, ere long, be a grand realization. On the evening of October 15th an entertainment was given in Fredericksburg, Va., to raise funds to erect a monument to the memory of Mrs. Lucy Ann Cox, who, at the commencement of the war, surrendered all the comfort of her father's home, and followed the fortunes of her husband, who was a member of Company A, Thirteenth Virginia Regiment, until the flag of the Southern Confederacy was furled at Appomattox. No march was too l

Confederate Generals. Most of them passed their closing years in poverty. [from the Richmond, Va., times, July 26, 1894.] Twenty-five Unpensioned heroes who suffered the Stings and Arrows of Outrageous fortune. It is a melancholy fact that almost every Confederate General who did not succumb to disease or fall in battle, died in poverty he brought on by his devotion to the cause espoused, says the Brooklyn Eagle. Raphael and Paul Semmes both died poor themselves, but a daughter of the former married a prosperous lawyer, General Zollicoffer. She left nothing to a family of five daughters, four of whom, however, married well. The fifth may have done likewise, although accurate trace of her has been lost. General Pillow left his family so poorly provided for that they were compelled to sell his library and his house, also, although friends rebought it by subscription. General T. C. Hindman died penniless, so did General Dick Taylor, and his two daughters made their home

War recollections. Story of the evacuation of Petersburg, by an eye-witness. A sad and solemn Sabbath. [from the Richmond, Va., Dispatch, June 12, 1894.] With a flag of Truce—a shout of Victory—Swarming with Troops— Safeguards and protection. The following interesting article has been furnished to the Dispatch by the gentleman to whom it is addressed: Petersburg, Va., May 24, 1894. George S. Bernard, Esq., Petersburg, Va.: Dear Sir: As requested, I give you my recollections of the evacuation of Petersburg by the Confederate and its occupation by the Federal forces in the early days of April, 1865, for publication in your second volume of War Talks of Confederate Veterans. On Saturday, the 1st of April, 1865, rumors were in general circulation throughout the city of Petersburg that General Lee would soon evacuate the city. On Sunday, the 2d, these rumors crystalized into full assurance that the evacuation was imminent; the fact that the military authorities wer<

come out and fight; but neither she nor any other ship would venture out from their place of refuge, and the Virginia retired to her anchorage off the mouth of James river, in full view of her enemy. She daily renewed her challenge to battle, and remained unmolested until the Confederate Government withdrew the troops and vessels towards Richmond, when the Virginia, drawing too much water to get over James river bar, was dismantled, abandoned and destroyed by her crew. A few years ago the United States Congress voted $200,000 prize money to the crew of the Monitor for destroying the Virginia! This demonstration made by the Confederacy of the power of made no foreign power has built any vessel like her. Those of the United States did us Confederates but little harm during the war. Seven of them now lie in James river; most of the others are rotting elsewhere. The Puritan and one or two others are under repair, and will be useful in harbor defence, for which alone such ves

The Confederate Navy. What it accomplished during the Civil War. [from the Richmond, Va., times, April 15 and 22, 1894.] A very interesting and valuable paper read before R. E. Lee Camp by Mr. Virginius Newton. This valuable resume is from a corrected copy kindly furnished by Mr. Newton, a live citizen of Richmond, whose agency is felt, if not proclaimed. His modesty would fain keep in the shade his merit. His heart holds all of the memorable past, as the readers of the Papers, as well as the local press, warmly know—Ed. Southern Historical Society papers. Several weeks ago Mr. Virginius Newton, of this city, was requested by the members of Lee Camp to read before that body a paper relating to some of the numerous episodes during the late war. Mr. Newton responded with the promptness of a gallant soldier, and selected as his subject the Confederate Navy and its noble deeds He succeeded in giving in the most condensed form a statement of the many noble deeds e
