sary supplies. The position of the Federal capital on the banks of the Potomac, and the exposure of the southern border of the United States along the line of Maryland and Pennsylvania, made it of transcendent importance that the country intervening between Richmond and Washington should be made and kept, as far as possible, thsoil, force his adversary to leave his fortifications and meet him on a battlefield of his own selection, where a victory might arouse the discontented people of Maryland, and lead to other advantages of incalculable value. A formidable Federal force of twelve thousand men lay at Harper's Ferry, on the flank and rear of his inthis bugle horn were worth a thousand men! The motives for the advance into Pennsylvania were similar to those already indicated as prompting the movement into Maryland of the previous year. The campaign was attended with misfortune from the start. The miscarriage of Stuart's cavalry deprived General Lee of its cooperation a

Longstreet leads us to infer that he prevailed over Lee's hesitancy to go into Maryland at all by reminding him of his (Longstreet's) experiences in Mexico, where, oned by General Longstreet that his army might live on green corn!) crossed into Maryland for he purpose of drawing the Federal army away from Washington in order to de Potomac at Williamsport, and probably the whole Rebel army will be drawn from Maryland. On the 13th Halleck says: Until you know more certainly the enemy's forces s reach the South Mountain. General Lee expected, of course, when he entered Maryland that the garrison at Harper's Ferry would leave the place and escape to the No commands, but Jackson, as we have seen, was in front of Bolivar before either Maryland or Loudoun Heights were occupied. After the various commands were in positi cautioned him against the danger of the garrison's attempting to escape into Maryland, but McLaws, no doubt, thought his troops on Maryland Heights sufficiently blo

between the Northern States, represented by the Federal Government, upon the one side; and the Southern States, represented by the Confederate Government, upon the other—the border Southern States being divided. The odds in numbers and means in favor of the North were tremendous. Her white population of nearly twenty millions was fourfold that of the strictly Confederate territory; and from the border Southern States and communities of Missouri, Kentucky, East Tennessee, West Virginia, Maryland and Delaware, she got more men and supplies for her armies than the Confederacy got for hers. Kentucky alone furnished as many men to the Northern armies as Massachusetts. In available money and credit, the advantage of the North was vastly greater than in population, and it included the possession of all the chief centres of banking and commerce. Then she had the possession of the old government, its capital, its army and navy, and mostly, its arsenals, dockyards, and workshops, with al

nd excellent mechanics, and they did a great deal of useful work. Several thousand stand of arms in the course of the campaign were rendered serviceable, which, otherwise, would have had to go to Richmond, and a good deal of artillery harness was repaired. When Milroy ran away from Winchester, in 1863, he left over twenty pieces of artillery, all of them spiked. Our workmen rendered them all fit for service within a day. My principal workmen were Mr. Gwaltmey, of Norfolk, Mr. Custard, of Maryland, and Mr. McNulty, of Highland county, Virginia. This repair-shop, as well as the special ordnance reports, I placed under charge of Lieutenant I. T. Walke, of Norfolk, who subsequently fell, October 9, 1864, while gallantly fighting with General Fitz. Lee, whose ordnance officer he then was. My principal assistant, who took charge of all the other ordnance property and kept the accounts, was Lieutenant William M. Archer, of Richmond, one of the most faithful and efficient officers of the d

in the heart of every surviving member of the Second corps. Oh, no; none of this! The only object is simply to put upon record, for history, those men and comrades who, at the time, had no one to do that duty for them. The brigade, composed of the First and Third North Carolina, and the Tenth, Twenty-third and Thirty-seventh Virginia regiments of infantry, was, a short time after the battle of Chancellorsville, in May, 1863, placed under the command of General George H. Steuart, of the Maryland Line, and followed him in the Gettysburg campaign, through all the campaigns of 1863, and down to the 12th of May, 1864, in all of which it bore itself with a conspicuous gallantry, and many times received the laudation of its division and brigade commanders. On the morning of May the 4th, 1864, the brigade, being on picket along the Rapidan, discovered the columns of the Federal army in the distance moving to the right and apparently to the river below. The order soon came to be ready

History does not record a series of battles like these, fought by one army in so short a space of time. To fight these battles the army had marched and counter-marched hundreds and hundreds of miles in these six months. In the item of shoes awhose bare feet were cut up with the rocks on the road over which they had struggled there to die. How was it possible, then, for those who survived and escaped wounds, but whose feet were in like condition, to keep up with the forced marches in Maryland? The hospital steward of the First South Carolina volunteers, afterwards an assistant surgeon, killed at Fredericksburg, marched barefooted from Manassas to Sharpsburg. I would call attention, too, to the fact that this charge of straggling

Passed Hagerstown on 26th; entered Pennsylvania at Middleburg; halted at night at Green Castle; through Chambersburg on 27th. At night the regiment was orderear as was desired, captured about thirty-seven privates and non-commissioned officers, one lieutenant and one captain. Brigadier-General George H.

idered the bank unconstitutional. In relation to the famous expunging resolution, introduced by Mr. Benton into the Senate, to relieve President Jackson of a just censure, passed on him some years before, Mr. Tyler—receiving instructions from resolutions adopted by the Virginia Legislature, to vote for those resolutions—resigned his seat and returned home. Mr. Tyler may be considered a firm and decided Whig. In 1836, as a Whig candidate for the Vice-Presidency, he obtained the votes of Maryland, Georgia, South Carolina, and Tennessee. In 1838 he was a member of the Legislature from James City county, and fully cooperated with the Whig party. In relation to the Whig party, in its position to the second term of Jackson and the opposition to the election of Martin Van Buren, Calhoun truly remarked: It is also true that a common party designation (Whig) was applied to the opposition in the aggregate. But it is no less true that it was universally known that it consisted of two d

In the last of these engagements, the terrible work at Malvern Hill, General Anderson, while leading a desperate charge, received a wound in the hand In August the army commenced the first invasion of the enemy's territory after having fought several battles concluding with the second battle of Manassas, where Pope was ruined and a splendid victory won; but General Anderson's brigade was not engaged in any serious fight previous to the actual invasion of Maryland. At the battle of South Mountain, however, where General D. H. Hill's division was left by General Lee to oppose the passage of General McClellan's army until Jackson could capture Harper's Ferry and come to Lee's assistance, General Anderson's command, in common with the other brigades of the divison, was subjected to one of the most trying ordeals of the war.
