the annual Reunion and banquet of the ‘Society of the Army and Navy of the Confederate States in Maryland,’ will take place on the evening of the 22nd of February, and will be preceded by a lecture before the ‘Maryland Line,’ by General J. A. Early, on ‘Stonewall Jackson's Campaign against Pope.’ We acknowledge the courtesy of invitations to attend the lecture and banquet, and very much regret that our Southern tour will compel us to forego our full purpose of being present. We hope, however, that we shall have the privilege of publishing General Early's paper, which will, doubtless, be an able and valuable discussion of that splendid campaign. the Louisiana division of the Army of Northern Virginia held its annual Reunion and Banquet in New Orleans on the 22nd of January. It seems to have been, as usual, a brilliant affair, and we deeply regretted our inability to accept a kind invitation to be present. the Sesqui-Centennial celebration of the settlement of Georgia was appropriately celebrated in Savannah on the 12th of February. The military display of over 5,000 soldiers, the address of Governor A. H. Stephens, the Sesqui-Centennial ode of Paul H. Hayne (recited by General Henry R. Jackson), the historical pageant, representing the landing of Oglethrope and his colonists, the pyrotechnic display at night, the trades parade on the 13th, the immense crowd of people, and other interesting features, seem to have made the celebration a grand success. We deeply regretted that we could not accept a highly appreciated invitation to be present. in the death of Rev. Dr. (General) W. N. Pendleton, at his home in Lexington, Va., on the evening of January 15th, there has ‘passed away’ another of our prominent Confederate leaders. As classmate of General R. E. Lee at West Point, his Chief of Artillery during the war, and his Pastor during his residence in Lexington, General Pendleton was closely connected with our great chieftain in life, and now sleeps well, hard by his grave, while the spirits of the two soldiers, who were faithful to cross and country, doubtless bask together in the smiles of the great ‘Captain of our Salvation.’ Of strong intellect, broad culture, firm convictions, devoted patriotism, earnest piety, and evangelical spirit, Dr. Pendleton made his impress on the age in which he lived, and will be sadly missed, not only in Lexington, but in the State and land which he loved so well and served so faithfully. General B. G. Humphries, of Miss., has also joined the column which has ‘crossed over the river to rest under the shade of the trees,’ leaving behind him the stainless name of a gallant soldier, a true patriot, an able statesman, a noble man. ‘Peace to his ashes!’
