re all brought out, the difficulties against which he contended considered, and the overwhelming numbers and resources opposed to him calmly weighed, the future historian will write Lee down as not only the greatest general which this country has ever produced, but one of the ablest commanders in all history. Some of General Taylor's pen portraits are very vivid, life-like and accurate. We have space for only his portrait of Stanton, of whom he says: A spy under Buchanan, a tyrant under Lincoln and a traitor to Johnson, this man was as cruel and crafty as Domitian. I never saw him. In the end, conscience, long dormant, came as Alecto, and he was not; and the temple of justice, on whose threshold he stood, escaped profanation. The Appletons have brought out the book in a style worthy of their reputation, and it will doubtless have a wide sale. Since the above notice was penned a telegram announces that General Taylor died in New York on the 12th of April. In his death a g

rn's unexpected delay in advancing prevented the complete realization of our plan of battle. This was attributable to obstructions along his line of march. It was expected that his force would have advanced rapidly and swept around toward the centre, cutting off the enemy's retreat across the bridge over the creek. Subsequently I was informed that General Pope commanded the Federal forces — comprising his corps — engaged in this battle, and that he had sent a telegram from the field to Mr. Lincoln, the Federal Executive, that he had in this engagement taken 20,000 Rebel prisoners. Our forces captured a considerable amount of camp equipage, arms and equipments while driving the enemy from the field. At the close of the action General Bragg said, as we met on the field, addressing me, General, the honors of the field are yours. Daniel Ruggles. Fredericksburg, Va., May 26, 1879.

f with several able and prominent men of the State and with one of the most respectable of the Creole families. His active, vigorous mind could not find scope in the avocations of a wealthy planter, and he asserted himself in every important State or national movement which interested his people from the time he assumed the responsibilities of a citizen to the day of his death. The prominent part he took in the Charleston Convention and other important events preceding the election of Mr. Lincoln, are fully set down in his book, which is almost a posthumous record of his own remarkable career, and made it inevitable that he would assume a prominence in the struggle he had endeavored to avert. His military career was exceptionally successful. He was never involved in disaster or identified with any defeat during the four years of his varied and active service. As commander of a brigade under Jackson in the Valley, he was conspicuous by his frequent and critical success, and fr

't help that. Not very long after that the election took place, followed by the war, the more immediate agents in producing which were Stephen A. Douglas and Abraham Lincoln, of Illinois (which State unjustly denounced Mr. Davis lately). Mr. Douglas, in the hope of getting the Southern vote for the Presidency, had, when Hon. Jeffea counter proposition to repeal it, which was carried by Northern against Southern votes; and in a subsequent discussion with him before the people of Illinois, Mr. Lincoln was the first man who brought the abolition of slavery into the Presidential election by declaring that the country could not be half free and half slave, but mpeal of the Missouri compromise, fired the Northern mind with the belief that the Southern people and their allies intended to carry slavery into the North; and Mr. Lincoln afterwards declared war against the South in defiance of his own maxim just quoted — not because the Southern people were attempting or intending to extend slav

from choice or on light occasion. They loved the Union formed of States united by the constitution; they feared a Union consolidated in the hands of men who denounced the constitution. They seceded not, as falsely charged, to shoot the Union to death, but mainly to preserve alive the institution of slavery, guaranteed by the constitution of the United States, and which they feared would be destroyed by the Republican party. Time has proved that their fears were not without foundation. Mr. Lincoln and two-thirds of his party in Congress then denied any purpose to destroy slavery, but every Republican leader now shamelessly boast that this was the great object of the war.

I am very anxious. A. Lincoln. Heavy rains stopped Stoneman, the Federal account tells us, and he was directed to remai swell with pride the heart of every officer and soldier of this army. And then in a letter to Lincoln, dated May 13th, 1863, Hooker says, near its close, Is it asking too much to inquire your opinier me. Jackson is dead and Lee beats McClellan in his untruthful bulletins. I cannot find that Lincoln ever answered this question. Aye, my comrades, the battle of Chancellorsville is over. When
