ruary, 1861. This vote broke down the strength of the secessionists and virtually turned the State over to Blair and his Home Guards. There were 65,000 stand of arms in the Federal Arsenal in St. Louis. It was the purpose of the State authorities to seize these arms, but the organizations of Blair prevented. Finally Blair rebelled against the power of the State and under his advice the State troops of Missouri were captured on May 1o, 1861, without waiting for the necessary orders from Washington. This put an end to Southern supremacy and saved Missouri and Kentucky to the Union. Blair became a Major-General in the Union army and commanded the 17th corps on Sherman's march to the sea. Xi. University men and Confederate education. Such was the position of the alumni of the University in the field and in the legislative and executive branches of the general government of the Confederacy.

Autobiography of Gen. Patton Anderson, C. S. A. [Transcribed by Mrs. Anderson and kindly furnished by her for publication, through Rev. H. A. Brown, Saxe, Va.—Ed.] I was born in Winchester, Franklin county, Tennessee, on the 16th day of February, 1822. My father, William Preston Anderson, was a native of Botetourt county, Virginia, and was born about the year 1775. During the second term of General Washington's administration he received from the President a commission of lieutenant in the United States army. About this time, or soon after, he removed to Tennessee, and at one time was United States district attorney for the——judicial district, and was subsequently surveyor-general of the district of Tennessee. In the year of 1812 he was colonel in the 24th United States infantry and was accidentally with Colonel Crogan in his defense of Fort Harrison. During this war he married my mother (Margaret L. Adair), who was the fifth daughter of Major-General John Adair, of Merc<

iam Latane, captain of the Essex Troop, 9th Regiment, Stuart's Brigade. The Burial of Latane has been made familiar to history by a poem by John R. Thompson, published in The University Memorial, and a painting under the same title, by William D. Washington, which was afterwards extensively copied. Washington's original painting is said to have sold for $10,000, and was afterwards destroyed by a fire in New York. The copies were numerous, and many of them can still be found in the North, aainting. It is said that young Latane's sweetheart requested a picture of the tragic affair, and when this idea was suggested to the artist, he made his picture as true to life as possible, only substituting other figures for the originals. Mr. Washington visited Summer Hill for the purpose of getting the correct scenery, and in this respect his picture is true to nature. Mrs. Newton is still living at Summer Hill, and Mrs. Brockenbrough is at the church home in Richmond. The rest of those p

very hour that Mississippi seceded, and after it, he was pleading for union without dishonor. When Mississippi seceded he resigned his seat in the Senate and went to his State and cast his lot with his people. Many another officer of the United States bent before the allegiance he acknowledged to his mother State and followed him with bleeding hearts. In spite of his well-known preference for service in the field, the Confederate Government called him to its head. Mr. Davis shared with Washington the extraordinary distinction of being elected President of a republic unanimously, but Mr. Davis was chosen by a more numerous people and at a period of more critical responsibility. He suffered for us. We love and honor Mr. Davis, most of all, because he suffered with us and for us, and was our President; because, in the language of the eloquent Peyton Wise, of Virginia, he was the type of that ineffable manhood which made the armies of the South. Time would fail me to picture the
