Hereof you are to make a true return under your hand. Dated his hand on this 27th of November, 1676. By the Court, Samuel, Green. At the trial, John Johnson, aged about 39 years, doth say that sometime in November last, near to Mr. Danforth's house, he saw Major Gookin, with sundry others, among whom was Caleb Grant and some of his brethren, and at a distance I saw Major Gookin hold up his staff over the head of Caleb Grant, and lay his shoulder, but I saw no blow given, nor heard any further.

Speaking of Wagner and its remarkable strength, Major Johnson, than whom no more competent judge could testify as to the qualities of a defensive work, paccount of this most interesting period of the history of Battery Wagner and Fort Sumter. In Major Johnson's book the full record will be found, and in the reports and correspondence published by act over Wagner, and the fleet engaged Fort Sumter.

hells and mortars. Colonel Elliott was slightly wounded, Capt. Edward D. Frost and 10 others were killed, and 40 sustained more or less serious injuries. Capt. John Johnson, Lieut. L. A. Harper and Capt. M. H. Sellers were distinguished for bravery and coolness amid the excitement and danger. The fire was not entirely extinguigh the heroic efforts of its garrison, under eighteen months of constant fire, the stronghold was maintained as an effective part of the city's defenses. Says Major Johnson: From having been a desolate ruin, a shapeless pile of shattered walls and casemates, showing here and there the guns disabled and half buried in splinterent Mitchel, one of the most gallant officers of the artillery service, was mortally wounded while making an observation from the highest point of the fort.

oil manufacture. In connection with this business he has an interest in a flour mill, and attends to his farm. In May, 1869, he married Miss Gambrel, a daughter of Mr. Reed Gambrel, of Anderson county, S. C., and they have six children. Major John Johnson, former major of engineers in the Confederate States service, and widely known as the author of the valuable historical work, The Defense of Charleston Harbor, is a native of Charleston, born in 1829. He was educated until he reached the ficer on the staff of General Hardee. In that capacity he participated in the battles of Averasboro and Bentonville, and was then transferred to the staff of Gen. J. E. Johnston as acting chief engineer of the army. With the return of peace Major Johnson resumed his theological preparation; in January, 1866, was ordained deacon in the Protestant Episcopal church, and in 1867 was ordained priest. He served as rector of Grace church, Camden, until 1871, and then became assistant minister of St

he guns, and was the only man wounded on either side in that engagement. General Crawford came at once to Charleston, while the city was still quaking in the agonies of the disaster, and lame himself, from a wound received at our hands at Reams's station, clambered over the debris of the city to find his old friends, and to counsel and sympathise with them. Among these was one who, like General Crawford, had distinguished himself in Fort Sumter, but that while serving on our side. The Rev. John Johnson, now rector of St. Philip's church, Charleston, was the Confederate engineer who, day and night, served in that fortress for more than a year, converting, by his skill and energy, the debris of the walls—as they were knocked down and crumbled to pieces under Gilmore's guns—into a still more formidable work, and who there was himself twice wounded. He it was—who, standing by his church and his people with the same devoted and heroic conduct in the throes of the earthquake as he had s<

alhoun's admirers, he uses the qualifying adjective blind, and adds, if there still be any left. Page 142, he calls Calhoun the fanatical champion of the ideas of the Middle Ages. His pet epithet, however, is doctrinaire, which reminds us of Dr. Johnson's encounter with the fishwoman of Billingsgate. If von Holst's unmeasured zeal in the service of the Worcester Convention Union haters had stopped here, it had been quite as harmless, if not so funny, as the mathematical epithets with which JJohnson silenced the fishwoman. But on page 233, speaking of Calhoun's dispatch to Pakenham of 18th April, 1844, he drops his favorite epithet doctrinaire, for Liar! Calhoun died 31st March, 1850. He had been in his grave over thirty years. His fame is part of the inheritance of the whole American people. It is much to be regretted that such language concerning him should now appear in 1882 under so respectable an imprint as that of Houghton, Mifflin & Co. In justice to them, we assume t
