s became somewhat contagious, and the effect of example was felt in the Twenty-fifth. However, under favorable circumstances, our men were very readily gotten out of loose ways in matter of discipline.

One of the vessels of a Federal fleet got aground in Masonboroa Sound, and was captured, with all on board, by a brigade of Georgians, stationed near the Sound, under the command of Colonel Wilson, of the Twenty-fifth Georgia volunteers. While we were here our new Chaplain, Rev. E. T. Winkler, D. D., who had been appointed to fill the vacancy occasioned by the resignation of Rev. A. Toomer Porter, reported for duty. The regiment was peculiarly fortunate in securing his services to fill the vacant place. He was a man of the highest scholarly attainments, and one of the most distinguished and eloquent ministers of the Baptist Church. His affability, cordiality and courtesy mad

fied the same. The same doctrine likewise appears in the ordinances of ratification of several of the States, in the debates of the convention itself, and in those of the various State conventions-denied only by the opponents of the Constitution, always affirmed by its friends. It is repeatedly and explicitly proclaimed in the Federalist. It appears in the writings and utterances of all the fathers of the Constitution, of Hamilton as well as of Madison, of Washington, Franklin, Gerry, Wilson, Morris, of those who favored as well as those who feared a strong government. It is emphatically announced, not only in the extreme Kentucky resolutions, but in the famous Virginia resolutions of 1798, the first from the pen of Jefferson, the last from that of Madison, the latter of which declared that they viewed the powers of the Federal government as resulting from the compact to which the States were parties. These resolutions formed thereafter the corner stone of the great States Rig

om Warren's corps were sent to help Hancock, thus making a force of more than forty thousand men, which was hurled at these devoted ten thousand until 8 o'clock P. M., in unavailing efforts to drive them from their position. Ewell's corps, less than sixteen thousand strong, had repulsed Warren's corps on the old turnpike, inflicting a loss of three thousand men or more and two pieces of artillery. Rosser, on our right, with his cavalry brigade, had driven back largely superior numbers of Wilson's cavalry division on the Catharpin road. These initial operations turned Grant's forces from the wide sweeping marches which they had begun, to immediate and urgent business in the Wilderness. The army which he had set out to destroy had come up in the most daring manner and presented itself in his pathway. That General Lee's bold strategy was very unexpected to the enemy, is well illustrated by the fact recorded by Swinton, the Federal historian, that when the advance of Warren's corps
