Editorial paragraphs.

Some of the friends of General Frank Gardner, having expressed the fear that General D. H. Hill's allusion to him in his address, which was published in our May number, might be construed as a censure of his gallant defence of Port Hudson, General Hill calls our attention to the fact that the language he used conveys no censure of either of the gallant officers named, but simply states a historic fact.

In reference to General Gardner, General Hill says: “There is no one in the South who has a sincerer regard for General Gardner than myself, from what I knew of him in Mexico, where he made at Telegraph Hill the most glorious fight of the war.”

We have deemed it but just to make this explanation, that a gallant, though unfortunate soldier, may not rest under the shadow of even unintentional censure.
