General introduction. First at Bethel; last at Appomattox. Such is the laconic inscription on the new monument to the Confederate dead which was recently unveiled in Raleigh. There is an especial appropriateness in the erection of this monument by the people of North Carolina in their organic cape son enlisted in the Flat River Guards, afterwards company B, 6th North Carolina, and was made second lieutenant. A few days before the battle of First Manassas, the 6th was ordered to Winchester and from there was rushed forward to reinforce Beauregard at Manassas. They arrived on the field at the crisis of the conflict on the 21st. Col. Fisher, from want of experience, had failed to throw out skirmishers or to form a line of battle, and when the regiment emerged, moving in column from a low

General Lee was at that time stationed in Richmond engaged in the work of organization. General Beauregard at Manassas made application for Captain Smith, as likely to be more useful to him at the front. General Lee declined to make the exchange, but when it became known to Captain Smith, after the opportunity was passed and he ardently desiredmes river, and this he accomplished in an incredibly short time while under constant fire from the gunboats and batteries at Dutch Gap under General Butler. He held this post with a long line of defence in connection with Pickett's Division of Beauregard's army, until the order for the final retreat was given. During these months the firing on both sides was almost constant, lasting for hours day after day. The order for his promotion was given, but in the confusion and delays of those darkest

ith, commanding the department, issued an address from Shreveport, La., to the soldiers, on April 22d, saying in reference to Lee's surrender at Appomattox: His army was but a small portion of our forces in Virginia. The armies of Johnston and Beauregard, tripling that under General Lee, are still in the field presenting an unterrified front to the enemy. On the same day, nearly three hundred miles away, the officers, from colonels to lieutenants, in the regiments known as Pyron's, Elmore's,Heavy Artillery, the Second Texas Cavalry, and others, signed a stirring appeal to the troops, which by a coincidence embodied the same sentiments as those at the same time promulgated by the commanding general. They asserted that Johnston and Beauregard still present an unbroken front to the invading foe, and declared, we still will meet the foe upon the threshold of our State with fire and sword, nerved by the unanswering and unalterable determination never to yield. To the same effect were

He now has before him a diary written at the time, and ther starved out in a few days if he was not knocked to pieces by General Beauregard's batteries. This remark was repeated to General Beauregard,General Beauregard, who informed President Davis. The result was, a second message was sent to Major Anderson by the same officers, accompanied by Roger A.

The party, as designated, then proceeded in their boats to Fort Johnson, on James Island, and delivere the fort at the northeast angle of the parapet.

of it in the acts of Congress. It was used by companies and regiments in Virginia in 1861, without authority, and just as a matter of taste. After Manassas, Beauregard had prepared at his headquarters a design for a flag, which was painted in water colors. It was a red square, on which was displayed a blue St. Andrew's cross,trial, showing its followers the way to duty and to death. Three flags were made by the three Cary girls, out of their own silk frocks, one for Joe Johnston, Beauregard, and Van Dorn each, and were always floated at the headquarters of these generals and on the march and in the battle showed where they were. This was BeauregBeauregard's battle-flag! Act of May I, 1863. May I, 1863, an act of Congress was passed to establish the flag of the Confederate States, and it provided that the battle-flag should be the union of the new flag, and that the field should be white. I never saw this flag with troops. General Lee had one in front of his headquarters

For, thoa from out our bourne time and place, The flood may bear me far; I hope to see my pilot face to face, When I have crossed the bar. Along the coast may still be seen the storm-beaten hulls of some of the unfortunate ships, which, after weathering many a gale at sea, came to grief within sight of a friendly port. The Beauregard and the Venus lie stranded on Carolina Beach; the Modern Greece near New Inlet; the Antonica on Frying Pan Shoals; the Ella on Bald Head; the Spunkey and the Georgiana McCall on Caswell Beach; the Hebe and the Dee between Wrightsville and Masonboro.

eracy, and the man who defended it had need of just such engineering skill as Beauregard had at Charleston. I have always been under the impression from personal expe temptation. At any rate, he never rested until, through the request of General Beauregard, he was assigned to an important command under that distinguished leader, favor of General Grant at Bermuda Hundreds. I was told at the time that General Beauregard exacted from General Whiting a promise that he would not, while with him, use potent liquors. It appears to be a historical fact that Beauregard had Butler in what he called a sack, and Whiting was assigned to watch the neck of it so thatpromise. Some weeks afterward I happened to meet the chief engineer of General Beauregard near Charleston, and asked him if the misadventure was due to General Which a reverse to admonish him that Stonewall Jackson was dead.

ll be a bright page in American history; and will show what the Anglo-Saxon race can and will do under a republican form of government in defence of a constitutional principle. As President Mr. Davis may have made mistakes. He was a constitutional ruler, not a revolutionary chief. He could not work miracles. He summoned to his council the genius of a Benjamin, the profundity of Hunter, the intellect of Toombs. He placed at the head of his troops Lee, Jackson, Albert Sidney Johnston, Beauregard, Joseph E. Johnston, and other leaders, not surpassed in any army since the marshals of the Empire. And when the night of defeat was darkening, and the dismantled ship of the Confederacy was sinking beneath the waters, he stood at the helm to the last. There is something indescribably pathetic in the sight, when a brave and gallant people stake everything upon the cast of battle, fight their armies to exhaustion, and almost to annihilation, in defending their homes and firesides against
