Havana for supplies, there learned of the conclusion of the war and the surrender of Lee's army at Appomattox. The vessel was then bonded to the Captain-General of Cuba for the sum of $16,000, with which her officers and crew were paid off and discharged. The Stonewall was subsequently surrendered to the United States government, and by that government sold to Japan. She was for some years in the naval service of Japan, and finally sunk in a typhoon. After leaving the Stonewall, in April, 1865, in the harbor of Havana, I proceeded to Mexico, where I was engaged in engineering on the first line of railway in that country. Returning to this country in the summer of 1866, I visited the Gosport Navy Yard, at Norfolk, and there, to my surprise, found the old Stonewall in dock, refitting for her subsequent voyage around Cape Horn and delivery to the Japanese authorities. Dr. Bennett Wood Green, who was a surgeon on board the Stonewall, recalled the career of the Confederate iron-

e of communication from partisan attacks. Ours was the only force behind him. At that time the records show that in round numbers Early had 17,000 present for duty, and Sheridan had 94,000. The word guerrilla is a diminutive of the Spanish word guerra (war), and simply means one engaged in the minor operations of war. I had only five companies of cavalry when Sheridan came, in August, 1864, to the Shenandoah Valley. A sixth was organized in September. Two more companies joined me in April, 1865, after the evacuation of Richmond. They came just in time to surrender. I don't care a straw whether Custer was solely responsible for the hanging of our men or jointly with others. If we believe the reports of the generals, none of them ever even heard of the hanging of our men; they must have committed suicide. Contemporary evidence is against Custer. I wonder if he also denied burning dwelling-houses around Berryville. Restopchin, the Governor of Moscow, claimed the credit of t

Richmond Howitzers. [from the Richmond, Va., Times, March 10th and 24th, 1895.] Facts about the battery during the Appomattox campaign. Extracts from official records which throw Light on many questions whose solution has been wanting. The reports of the Appomattox campaign embraced in Volume 46 of the Official Records of the war, have an intense interest for all engaged in that memorable campaign of March and April, 1865, throwing light, as they do, on many questions whose solution has awaited the detailed information embodied in these official reports. It has long been a problem to many of us, not only how Lee's army was ever able to reach Appomattox Courthouse, nearly one hundred miles from Petersburg, but even how it could get away from the Petersburg and Richmond lines, confronted and threatened as that army was, by such odds, and hampered by abundant lack of even food to sustain physical life. What these numerical odds were, is shown by the figures of offic
