Harper's Ferry. This was saved, though somewhat damaged by fire, when the armory was abandoned by the U. S. officers in charge; this machinery was removed to Richmond, Va., and Fayetteville, N. C., where it was set up and operated. At first, all arms and ordinance supplies of the United States were claimed by the several secedin, machine shops, railroad repair shops, etc., and at the few small U. S. arsenals and ordnance depots. The chief of these in the early part of the war were at Richmond, Va., Fayetteville, N. C., Charleston, S. C., Augusta, Savannah and Macon, Ga., Nashville and Memphis, Tenn., Mount Vernon and Montgomery, Ala., New Orleans and Ba their bodies and clothing being thrown up among the branches of trees standing near. Later a similar accident at Richmond, in one of the shops on an island in James river, due, it was believed, to careless handling of a tray of friction primers, caused the death of a number of women and girls and grievous burning of others.

Stuart's cavalry in the Gettysburg campaign. By Col. John S. Mosby. A review by Col. T. M. R. Talcott. After reading Col. Mosby's book, which I had not seen until recently, I asked Col. Walter H. Taylor whether he had made any reply to it, and received the following letter from him: Norfolk, Va., March 12th, 1909. Colonel T. M. R. Talcott, Richmond, Va. Dear Colonel,—I have received your letter of the 10th inst. I read what Mosby had to say about Gettysburg some time ago. I did not attach much importance to his statements and did not publish, neither have I any intention to publish, anything in reply. I think some of the partisans of General Stuart have done him more harm than good in their contributions concerning army movements in the Gettysburg Campaign. What I have claimed is simply this: Although certain discretion was allowed General Stuart as to his movements, he was admonished all the while to keep in touch with our main army and to keep General Lee informed

Major Andrew Reid Venable, Jr. [from Richmond, Va., Times-Dispatch.] By W. Gordon McCABE. Died, on October 15, 1909, at Millwood, near Farmville, Va., Major Andrew Reid Venable, Jr., formerly Adjutant and Inspector-General of the Cavalry Corps of the Army of Northern Virginia, in his seventy-seventh year. This fell sergeant, Death, is strict in his arrest, as Shakespeare tells us, and thus has been struck from the rolls of survivors of that glorious army the name of one of the noblest gentlemen and most daring soldiers who ever periled life for hearth and home and country. But it is only from the roll of survivors that his name has been stricken, for on the deathless roll itself, his name shall blaze so long as freemen shall revere those stern and warlike virtues that make men strong to meet with unshaken front the very stroke of fate. Born of an ancient and honorable race, distinguished from Colonial days for inflexible integrity, high courage and keen intellectual

General Armistead's portrait presented. An address delivered before R. E. Lee camp no. 1, C. V., Richmond, Va., January 29, 1909. By Rev. James E. Poindexter, Late Captain in 38th Virginia Regiment, Armistead's Brigade, Pickett's Division. Mr. Commander and Comrades: It was my wish that this address should be made by Col. Rawley W. Martin, of Lynchburg, who led the Fifty-third Virginia in Pickett's charge, and fell by the side of Armistead on Cemetary Ridge. But this could not be, and so I come to take his place. For the task assigned me I feel myself but poorly equipped. Unlike Col. Martin, I followed our old Commander, as St. Peter followed the Master, afar off. It is, I may say, with unfeigned diffidence that I venture to speak of war to the veteran soldiers who are here to-night. On me, however, through your kindness, is this honor conferred, that I should present to the Camp the portrait of Lewis A. Armistead. I thank you for it with all my heart. The Arm

General Joseph Plume then transferred the memorial to the State of New Jersey, and Governor Fort, of that State, made a speech accepting and transferring it again to the Fifteenth New Jersey Volunteer Veterans' Association. An address on behalf of the latter body was delivered by Theodore F. Swayze, of Washington, D. C. Similar addresses of presentation and acceptance were made at the unveiling of th

Centennial of Grimes' battery. From Richmond, Va., news leader, January 8, 1910. Portsmouth artillery Celebrates Hundredth Birthday of organization. Grimes' battery, a famous artillery organization of Portsmouth, is 100 years old and the anniversary is being celebrated by its members. Not many citizens of the city of Portsmouth are aware of the fact that Grimes' battery is the oldest artillery organization in the State of Virginia, and that the year 1910 marks its one hundred anniversary, says the Portsmouth Star. Grimes' battery was organized in the year 1810, and is as well known in the records of the government and war department and outside the State of Virginia, as any organization in the country. The battery is an historical organization of which the city of Portsmouth and her citizens may well be proud of, and its record is one filled with the glorious achievements through when Portsmouth came to be one of the makers of the history of our country and our St

C., and afterwards, under General Hoke, assisting in the capture of Plymouth and Little Washington, in preparation to take Newbern, but on account of our ironclad gunboat (The Trent), having run aground at Kingston, the attempt on Newbern was abandoned, and we were ordered to return to Virginia as soon as possible. We got back to our lines, in rear of Manchester and Drewry's Bluff, on the morning of the 7th or 8th of May, and took position in the first line of entrenchments, under command of General Bragg. On the night of the 14th of May, General Beauregard came over from Petersburg, by way of Chesterfield Courthouse, and took command, and on the 15th, extra ammunition was issued and everything made ready for the advance the next day, the 16th of May. We started to our assigned position about 2 o'clock on the morning of the 16th, and marched to

Gen. W. L. Cabell tells how Confederate flag was devised. From Richmond, Va., news leader, November 12, 1909. Editorial in Atlanta Journal quotes Commander of Trans-Mississippi giving honor to Beauregard, Johnston and certain Ladies. General William L. Cabell, of Dallas, Texas, the commander of the Trans-Mississippi department of the United Confederate Veterans, makes an exceedingly interesting contribution to the literature of the Conquered Banner by telling of the circumstances unef quartermaster, to have the flag made as soon as it could be done. I immediately issued an address to the good ladies of the South to give me their red and blue silk dresses, and to send them to Captain Colin McRae Selph, quartermaster, at Richmond, Va. (Captain Selph is now living in New Orleans.) He was assisted by two elegant young ladies, the Misses Carey, from Baltimore, and Mrs. Henningsen, of Savannah, and Mrs. Hopkins, of Alabama. The Misses Carey made battleflags for General Beau

Helped capture engine General. from Richmond, Va., Times-dispatch, December 29, 1909. Anthony Murphy, had part in wild race during Civil war. His exploit one of famous incidents of conflict between States. Atlanta, Ga., December 28, 1909. Anthony Murphy, aged eighty years, a pioneer citizen of the South and one of the two men who pursued and captured the famous engine, General, when the latter had been seized and carried off from Marietta, Ga., by Federal raiders during the Civil War, died here to-day. Murphy was born in Ireland, and came to this country when twenty-six years old. He became one of the constructors of the Western and Atlantic Railroad, but when the war broke out entered the Confederate service, and, owing to his skill in mechanics, was assigned by Governor Brown, father of the present Governor, to assemble men to make guns. On April 12, 1862, the Federal secret service arranged to seize a train at Marietta, cut off the engine, run it from Bi
