rred, and its place supplied by the Third and Twenty-sixth Alabama regiments. He was wounded at Seven Pines and Sharpsburg. At Chancellorsville, in command of D. H. Hill's old division, he led the advance, and swept everything before him. His clarion voice shouting, Forward, men, over friend or foe, electrified his troops, and they were irresistible. They pushed on, under his gallant leadership, and completely routed the panic-stricken stricken soldiers of Fighting Joe Hooker. After Generals Jackson and A. P. Hill were wounded, General Rodes was in supreme command, but he modestly and patriotically yielded to General J. E. B. Stuart, who had been sent for by General Pendleton of the artillery. After this battle he was promoted full Major-General, and put in charge of Battle's, Ramseur's (now Cox's), Doles' (now Cook's), and Daniel's (now Lewis') brigades. General Rodes was a precise and somewhat stern military man, of resolute expression and soldierly bearing, and enjoyed the imp

f Traveler. The lithograph makes a really beautiful picture, which we hope will adorn a very large number of our Southern schools and homes. Photographs of distinguished Confederates are somewhat common; but accurate, standard pictures are comparatively rare. We are indebted to Mr. D. H. Anderson, photographer of Richmond, for a lot of the latter class. He has presented us with superb photographs,and (most of them) excellent likenesses of Generals R. E. Lee, J. E. Johnston, Stonewall Jackson, Early, J. E. B. Stuart, Heth, Mahone, G. W. C. Lee, Lilly, Jno. S. Preston, Geo. W. Randolph, John Echols, Beauregard, B. T. Johnson and D. H. Maury, Colonels John B.

k for the church, and of his delightful letters, we may not here speak. But the part of the volume which tells of his deep sympathy with the Confederate cause, and gives copious extracts from his letters and addresses vindicating from a Christian standpoint the course of the Confederacy, is a most valuable addition to our history. We are glad to find given in full Dr. Thornwell's able paper on Our danger and our duty, which was printed in tract form during the war, and which Stonewall Jackson was so delighted with, that he subscribed $100 towards having it circulated in his corps. There are also a number of other papers of great value as vindications of the South, while his letters during the war are beautiful illustrations of the spirit of our best people during that great struggle. That Dr. Palmer has done his work with admirable skill and rare ability will surprise none who know the man. He has produced a book of deep interest, which will take a permanent place in South

s. The axe and torch finished what the sword had left. For this vandalism he was promoted, while the humane McClellan was dismissed from his command. Such is Yankee civilization, humanity and christianity! The gentleman and scientific soldier is removed from power and disgraced, while the ruffian, robber, house and mill-burner and cattle thief is given higher office, lauded to the skies and made a hero of. It is matter of sincere congratulation that our chivalrous Southern leaders, Lee, Jackson, Stuart, Hampton, Rodes and others, are made of far different material from that which makes up the bloody butcher Grant, the bummer Sherman, the barn-burner Sheridan, the mulatto-women-lover Custer, and the degraded Beast Butler.

s interviewed, but showed himself anything but a high toned gentleman, falsified promises made, and did not repudiate the charge of harsh and unsoldierly conduct towards prisoners of war, nor remove the cause of complaint. His whole course is a reproach and scandal to himself and his Government. He brands us Rebels, and treats us as if we were criminals of the lowest type. We should be proud of the noble name Rebel. It is borne by those dead heroes, Generals Albert Sydney Johntson, Stonewall Jackson, J. E. B. Stuart, Leonidas Polk, R. E. Rodes and T. R. R. Cobb, by Colonels R. T. Jones and B. B. Gayles, of my own beloved regiment, and by hosts of other gallant officers and no less brave privates, who have been transferred from the Confederate army to that glorious encampment where the white tents of the just are never struck, and where the laureled soldier bleeds and dies no more. The great Captain of us all has promoted these Rebels to higher rank. and given them more honorable

he current of the Mississippi with her own motive power, aided by two steam tugs. That every exertion was made by Commander Mitchell, the officers and mechanics, to get the Louisiana in a proper state of efficiency for the defence of the passage of the river, and that the defects in the mounting of the battery had been remedied, and the battery served with efficiency, with the exception of two guns out of place. It appears that a request, or order, was sent by General Duncan, commanding Fort Jackson, to Commander Mitchell, to change the position of the Louisiana to a point lower down stream, which by a council of officers was unanimously deemed impracticable, and to a certain extent impossible, on account of the great depth of water, and that such change of position would endanger the safety of the Louisiana. That in the position General Duncan desired the Louisiana to assume, she would have been in range of the mortar boats of the enemy, and perfectly helpless, inasmuch as sh

h, at least, is that of A. P. Hill, and the men of his old corps remember with sorrowful pride that his name lingered last upon the dying lips of Lee and of Jackson.

Of the other, who fell but the evening before at Five Forks, I almost fear to speak, lest I should do hurt to that memory which I would honor. For to those who knew him not, the simplest outline of a character so finely tempered by stern and gentle virhan once in desperate and critical events were grave trusts confided to his prudence, skill and courage; more than once did he win emphatic praise from Hill, from Jackson, and from Lee. Thus, it was his lot to be tried in great events, and his fortune to be equal to the trial, and having filled the measure of perfect knighthood, ch
