overnment of a trial of the Gardiner musket shell. In May, 1862, Mr. Gardiner offered to sell some of his explosive musket shells to the Government at a stipulated price. His application was referred to General Ripley with the following endorsement: Will General Ripley consider whether this explosive shell will be a valuable missile in battle? A. Lincoln. General Ripley replied that it had no value as a service projectile. In June, 1862, Brigadier-General Rufus King, at Fredericksburg, made a requisition for some of the Gardiner musket shells. On referring this application to the Chief of Ordnance, General Ripley, that old army officer, whose sense of right must have been shocked at this instance of barbarism, a second time recorded his disapproval, replying that it was not advisable to furnish any such missiles to the troops at present in service. In September, 1862, the Chief of Ordnance of the Eleventh corps, United States army, recommended the shell to the Ass

er articles are very cleverly done and beautifully illustrated. But we were especially interested in Extracts from the journal of Henry J. Raymond, the famous Editor of the New York Times. This number gives a vivid descriprion of his visit to Army of the Potomac in January, 1863, his private intercouse with Generals Burnside, Sumner, Wadsworth, and other officers, and a good deal of the inside history of the battle of Fredericksburg, the plan of Burnside to cross the river again below Fredericksburg, which was prevented by a telegram from Mr. Lincoln, and the celebrated stick in the mud expedition, which was defeated before the column reached the place of crossing. Mr. Raymond tells a good deal of the dissensions among the generals of the Army of the Potomac at this time, and narrates a good many things which form pleasant reading for an old Confederate, and some of which we may hereafter have occasion to quote. Scribner is certainly among the very best of our monthlies, and i

he litter-bearers made their way to a point on the road where a solitary ambulance was standing. In this ambulance Colonel Crutchfield and Major Rogers had been placed when wounded. Although badly hurt, the latter insisted upon being taken out to make room for the General, and Jackson was laid in his place. The following letters from General Lee and General Jackson's Adjutant-General bear testimony to the gallantry of this officer: headquarters army of Northern Virginia, near Fredericksburg, January 6th, 1864. General S. Cooper, Adjutant and Inspector-General, &c., Richmond: General — I understand that Major A. L. Rogers, of the artillery, though disabled for field duty, is anxious to render such service as he can perform. He was formerly attached to this army, and was wounded at the battle of Chancellorsville. He is a gallant officer, and if there is any duty he can perform at the stationary batteries in or around Richmond, or in the camps of instruction, I recommend

Richard Kirkland, the humane hero of Fredericksburg. By General J. B. Kershaw. [The following incident, originally published in the Charleston News and Courier, deserves a place in our records, and we cheerfully comply with requests to publish it which have come from various quarters.] Camden, S. C., January 29, 1880. To the Editor of the News and Courier: Your Columbia correspondent referred to the incident narrated here, telling the story as 'twas told to him, and inviting corrections. As such a deed should be recorded in the rigid simplicity of actual truth, I take the liberty of sending you for publication an accurate account of a transaction every feature of which is indelibly impressed upon my memory. Very yours, truly J. B. Kershaw. Richard Kirkland was the son of John Kirkland, an estimable citizen of Kershaw county, a plain, substantial farmer of the olden time. In 1861 he entered as a private Captain J. D. Kennedy's company (E) of the Second South Caro

We similarly dieted when we first entered Maryland. From Shepherdstown we went into camp at Bunker hill, and there remained until sent to North Mountain depot, near Hedgesville, to tear up the Baltimore and Ohio railroad. We did our work so thoroughly, that General Jackson complimented us, and ordered us back to Bunker hill to rest, while the balance of his command was destroying the road between Martinsburg and Harper's Ferry. We also helped to tear up the Winchester and Charlestown or Harper's Ferry road. We next camped at Castleman's Ferry, in Clarke county, where we did picket duty for some time. And then near Winchester, where we remained until our corps was ordered to Fredericksburg. Here we camped but a short time before we were called upon to take an active part in the great battle of Fredericksburg

Major — I have the honor to submit the following report of the operations of my brigade in the late engagement before Fredericksburg. At half-past 6 o'clock, on the morning of the 12th, we left our bivouac and took the position assigned us on the rigadier-General Maxey Gregg, fell mortally wounded. After this battle our brigade was ordered to Moss neck, below Fredericksburg, and went into winter quarters in the woods around the residence of a Mr. Corbin.

I repeated this application, and on leaving Fredericksburg I telegraphed, urging a supply to be sent to meet me at Culpeper. I am satisfied that most of the horses lost on tnor to submit the following account of the operations of the battalion under my command from the time of leaving Fredericksburg, Virginia, to the present date. Without referring in detail to each day's marching, which made up by far the largest part of its operations, it may suffice to state that the battallion, consisting of three batteries, leaving Fredericksburg on the 15th June, 1863, and reaching Culpeper Courthouse on the 17th, was assigned to duty with Major-General Pender's division.

Literary notices. Fredericksburg — past, present and future. By Rev. Robert R. Howison. We are indebted to the author for a copy of this admirable sketch of the historic old town. With a subject of deep interest, Mr. Howison's facile pen has produced a narrative which should find a place in every historic collection. First day of the battle of Gettysburg--an address before the Historical Society of Pennsylvania. By Colonel Chapman Biddle. Lippincott & Co., Philadelphia. This is a carefully prepared, admirably written, and exceedingly fair sketch of the first day at Gettysburg. We cannot admit the accuracy of all of his statements and conclusions, and yet Colonel Biddle has carefully studied both sides [in his foot-notes he makes fifty-two references to the Southern Historical Society Papers], and evidently means to tell the truth as he understands it. It is a very valuable contribution to the history of that great battle, and we could wish for many more war papers

e--Lee, Jackson, Stuart, under whom the army of Northern Virginia felt itself invincible. Who can doubt the result had not our glorious leader been deprived of both his right arm and his left? When Jackson fell, when Stuart was no more, brave hearts still hoped, but 'twas hoping against hope. I cannot now follow Stuart as he led our cavalry through the seven days battles around Richmond; at Cedar mountain; at the second battle of Manassas; through the first Maryland campaign, and at Fredericksburg. I cannot do more than make bare mention of his midnight descent upon the rear of Pope's army at Catlett's station — or of his expedition into Pennsylvania, when he again electrified both nations by passing for the second time around McClellan's army as it lay on the banks of the Potomac — returning to the Virginia shore without the loss of a man or a horse, having accomplished one of the most wonderful marches on record.
