Editorial Paragraphs.

our February and March numbers are combined under one cover for the convenience of the Secretary, who expects to be absent from his office from the 19th of February until the 16th of March, but we are sure our readers will not object as they get their full quota of pages, and a number of great variety and interest.

renewals have been coming in quite briskly, but a large number of our subscribers have forgotten this important matter and we beg them to attend to it at once. We are running our Papers on a cash basis, and as we are paying cash for our printing, etc., we need the renewals of all of our subscribers.

New subscriptions have been coming in in most gratifying numbers, and our subscription list is steadily increasing, but we can find room for many more, and hope that our friends will not cease their efforts to extend our circulation.

‘the Tennessee soldiers' Association’ is an organization which has its headquarters in Nashville, and is composed of ‘the soldiers of Tennessee in all of the wars,’ its object being to have prepared a history of the soldiery of the ‘Volunteer State,’ with a Roster of all living Tennessee soldiers. They have happily chosen as their historian, Dr. J. B. Lindsley, whose untiring research and facile pen will doubtless perform in the most satisfactory manner, the task assigned him. The following are the officers of the Association:

President, Colonel John A. Fite, Carthage; First Vice-President, Captain J. T. Martin, Nashville; Second Vice-President, Captain W. Ledgerwood, Knoxville; Third Vice-President, Captain Albert T. McNeal, Bolivar; Fourth Vice-President, Private Rhum Payne, Knoxville; Fifth Vice-President, Captain Jno. W. Morton, Nashville; Sixth Vice-President, Colonel C. R. Rurteau, Memphis; Secretary, Captain S. W. Steele, Nashville; Corresponding Secretary, Major John S. Bransford, Nashville; Treasurer, Colonel Jno. P. Maguire, Nashville.

At a recent meeting of their Executive Committee to confer with our General Agent for Tennessee, and Kentucky (Colonel H. D. Capers), Captain Robt. A. Cox offered the folllowing, which was unanimously adopted:

Whereas, the ‘Tennessee Soldiers’ Association have become aware of the presence at Nashville of Colonel Henry D. Capers, General Agent of the “Southern Historical Soeiety,” an institution whose labor for the past ten years has resulted in the proper presentation to the impartial world of the record made by the people of the Southern States during their struggle for independence, it is therefore

Resolved, That this Association extend to Colonel Capers, as the representative
