in 1843. Having no money with which to support myself, and the bar being crowded with the best talent of Tennessee, Alabama and other States which had been attracted to this new country by its great prosperity and promise, I accepted the positiver. This duty was performed to the entire satistaction of General Bragg. In August Withers was transferred to duty in Alabama and Hindman was assigned to the command of the division. Shortly before evacuating Chattanooga my brigade was withdrawn Brigade. On 28th of December, 1862, assigned to command of Trapier's Brigade, composed of two South Carolina and two Alabama regiments—same had been commanded for some time by Colonel A. M.

his matter, which seems to be in such great confusion, happened twice, and comrades write about each without giving dates, and hence the conflict. I commanded the Fourteenth Georgia Regiment, Thomas's Georgia Brigade, Wilcox's Division, and A. P. Hill's Corps, and saw both occurrences, and all writers nearly are correct. Captain R. D. Funkhouser writes from Mauvertown, Va.: The details of the Lee-to-the-rear incident are given at the request of W. T. Gass, of Texas. The claims of Alabama and Texas are correct. Their account occurred on the 5th or 6th of May, 1864, at the Wilderness proper. The battle of Spotsylvania, or Horse-shoe, occurred on the 12th of May, fifteen or twenty miles distant. I was first lieutenant of Company D, Forty-ninth Virginia Infantry (the famous Extra-Billy Smith's old regiment), up to the battle of Spotyslvania. After that I commanded my company, and was captured at Hare's Hill, or Fort Steadman, March 25, 1865, in front of Petersburg, along

s time the entire line withdrew to the crest of a hill and, pursuant to orders from General Withers, I took position in advance of the other troops. General Withers in his report, Vol. 10, page 535, in referring to this, says: The command slowly and in good order retired and formed line of battle as ordered, the advance line under Colonel Wheeler. A little later the bulk of our army commenced withdrawing from the field, and I was instructed to act as the rear guard with the 19th Alabama, 1st Missouri, some small detachments and a section of artillery. The gallant colonel of the 1st Missouri, Lucius L. Rich, having been mortally wounded, the regiment was now commanded by Major Olen F. Rice. The enemy were in heavy masses in my front, but they showed no disposition to advance, and the firing was at long range and without much effect. General Buell (page 295) speaks of this firing, but says: The pursuit was continued no further that day. General Grant (page 109) s

on when the war began. His last command while in the service of the United States, was the Crusader. He was very successful in capturing slavers. In January, 1860, while in command of the Crusader, and also acting as paymaster of the vessel, he was ordered by the Secretary of the Navy to proceed to Mobile, and there cash a check on the collector of the port for prize money due the officers and crew. The city being agitated at the time by the Ordinance of Secession, just passed by the State of Alabama, he was forced to put his vessel in a defensive position, and soon retired to the port of Habana. Here, failing to negotiate with the bank of Habana for the funds requisite for the necessities of the vessel, he advanced from his private funds the money needed to work the steamer to New York, where he was ordered. He turned the steamer over to the proper authorities and went to Washington to settle his accounts. His cash accounts received no attention, though for several months he was

esents the patient and conscientious labor of years. Days, and often weeks, have been spent on the figures of each regiment, and no statistics are given that are not warrented by the official records. As far as I am able to judge, this volume, by comparison with others of like character, is the most accurate and complete, and by far the most impartial work of the kind published since the war by the northern press. Colonel Fox gives the following: Strength of the Confederate armies. Alabama—Fifty-five regiments and eleven battalions of infantry; five regiments of cavalry; three regiments of partisan rangers, and sixteen batteries of light artillery. Arkansas—Thirty-five regiments and twelve battalions of infantry; six regiments and two battalions of cavalry, and fifteen batteries of light artillery. Florida—Ten regiments and two battalions of infantry; two regiments and one battalion of cavalry, and six batteries of light artillery. Georgia—Sixty-eight regiments and

. To prove this, I will quote from the case of the United States, as presented to the Geneva arbitrators, the following facts: In 1860, two-thirds of the commerce of New York was carried on in American bottoms: in 1863 three-fourths was carred on in foreign bottoms. And the transfers from the United States to the British flag were enormously large. They were: Ships. Tons. 1861,12671,673 1862,13574,578 1863,348252,579 1864,10692,052 War ended in April, 1865. The mediocre Alabama, a single small and ill-armed ship, was the cause of most of this loss. There were, no doubt, other contributing factors, but the effect of her career is plainly marked in the sudden increase of transfers during 1863, when she was at sea. After she had been sent to the bottom, Yankee skippers recovered their breath. The trade, however, had departed, and the United States has never regained the position which it held in 1860 as a shipping nation. Here again, the destruction of helpless no

a veritable cyclopedia of the persons and incidents of the 1830s, 1840s and 1850s. After all he was remembered chiefly on account of the fact that he was the second of Cilley in the celebrated Cilley-Graves duel, fought to a finish with rifles, amid the hills of Maryland, and when Jones' principal was practically murdered. Clingman was not only a second in duels, but he was more than once a principal. His most famous meeting was with one of his Southern colleagues, William L. Yancey, of Alabama, on account of words used by the latter during the famous debate upon the question of Texas' annexation. Clingman had twitted Southern senators harshly for their indifference in regard to a resolution bearing upon the reception of petitions from Abolitionists, he supporting the right of petition. Yancey replied to his reflections with one of the bitterest and most personal of the tirades which made the Congresses of that day remarkable. He declared that Clingman was everwhere viewed as t

General Gordon, speaking for Mrs. Davis, said: Comrades, Mrs. Davis says she only wishes that you all had one mouth so she could kiss it.
