Admirable addresses were made on the occasion by Mr. J. K. Morton, General William Preston, General George D. Johnston and Colonel W. P. C. Breckinridge.

The organization goes into operation under most flattering auspices, and we shall expect to have good reports from it.

There have been also steps taken for the organization of a similar society in Louisville, and the details of that organization are being matured by gentlemen who have it in hand. If there could be a union of the Louisville movement with the Lexington society into one State organization, with local associations at Louisville, Lexington, and other points in Kentucky, it would be best, but we are entirely willing to leave the matter to the good judgment of our friends in Kentucky. And we confidently look for such practical co-operation as shall not only extend our membership, and circulate our publications in Kentucky, but bring us also important contributions to our archies, and especially valuable material for a history of the war in the West and Southwest.

We hope that other States also will move in the matter of forming auxiliary Societies. Let us push the good work, while the men who made the history live to tell it.
