Unveiling of monument at Fredericksburg to Humphreys' Division largely attended.
Fredericksburg, Va., November 11.—The unveiling of the monument in the National Cemetery here today to General Andrew Atkinson Humphreys, Third Division, Fifth Army Corps, and Pennsylvania Troops, attracted a large number of people to this city, including about 1,500 Pennsylvanians, many of them being Federal veterans who took part in the battles of the Civil War here in 1862, and members of General Humphrey's division, which made its heroic charge against Marye's Heights, but was repulsed by the Confederates with a heavy loss of men.
Prominent among the visitors were Captain George F. Baer, president of the Fredericksburg Battlefield Memorial Commission, of Pennsylvania; Governor Edwin S. Stuart, of Pennsylvania and staff, and Admiral Winfield Scott Schley.
The parade formed at the courthouse, under command of Major Clay W. Evans, of Penn
ldier; that they could not whip them in the field and the only way to conquer them would be to starve them to death.
The Federal prisoners got the same rations that the Confederate soldiers in the field received; the only difference being that the prisoners got their's regularly, while the soldiers in service frequently failed.
Another unavoidable hardship and one that caused many deaths in Southern prisons was that, except in Virginia and Tennessee, the South raised no wheat, and after 1862, the wheat growing section of these States was lost to the Confederacy.
Hence, as corn was our only staple for bread, all were glad to get cornbread, a diet that the Northern man was unused to, and a less healthy bread in hot weather than wheat bread.
Your armies had burned our mills, destroyed our crops, both growing and gathered.
Sheridan wrote Grant that a crow passing through the Valley of Virginia would have to carry a haversack.

Smith, James A., enli e service, by virtue of his own prowess and personal influence, he raised a command in Southwest Virginia and in Eastern Kentucky of about 5,000 men, and these men protected the Virginia and Tennessee Railroad and the Salt Works, which were essential almost to the Confederacy, and made large captures in Eastern Kentucky of equipments and ammunition, and broke up organizations that would have given great trouble in that region.
I doubt if any other individual in the Confederacy in the fall of 1862 could have commanded the personal following that General Floyd did. While not trained as a soldier, he was intus et in cute,—a hero and a soldier.
He sounded his bugle and thousands rallied to his standard in the mountains of Southwest Virginia, where he was born and known.
I was at his side at Carnifax Ferry when he was wounded: I was with him also at Cross Lanes (an engagement fought a few days before Carnifax Ferry), and I have never seen a more splendid figure on a battlefield, or a m

Curious Bit of history.
There is a curious historical event which the muse of history has disdained to notice.
At Hilton Head, in March, 1862, it was proposed to organize out of certain loyal blacks, within easy reach, a patriotic negro brigade.
But this reinforcement so little appreciated the intended onally with an ace up his sleeve.
What he did find fault with was the claim that the ace had been put there by the Providence of God.
Banded by Illinois.
In 1862 as part of the work of a constitutional convention held at Springfield, Illinois, were the following sections of Article XVIII, of a proposed constitution: (1) No ir message to dwelling gratefully on the sins of others.
They who were of purer eyes than to behold iniquity, undoubtedly had no eyes for their own.

Ransom's Brigade. From the Richmond Dispatch, February 25, 1901. Its gallant conduct in the Capture of Plymouth. By Edwin O. Moore, of Company A, Twenty-fourth North Carolina Regiment. In the winter of 1861-62, by the capture of Hatteras, Roanoke Island, and New Berne, all the tidewater region of North Carolina east of Wilmington lay at the mercy of the Union forces. To render these conquests permanent, and to serve as bases for further inroads into the State, they seized and stro
devotion to the cause; the State contributed her treasure, almost to the last dollar, and her sons, to the number of 120,000, before the conflict ended.
The Confederate Government made an ineffectual effort to regain New Berne in the winter of 1862-63, but it was not until April, 1864, that any important success to regain the lost ground was accomplished.
This was the recapture of Plymouth, by a force under General Robert F. Hoke, consisting of his own division, composed of North Carolinian
