Editorial paragraph.

renewals are not only still ‘in order,’ but are absolutely essential to the comfort and well-being of ‘these headquarters.’

Three dollars is a small matter to the individual subscriber, but the one thousand three dollars due us is a very large matter to us. In fact, it is just exactly the difference between meeting all of our expenses this year without trouble, and being seriously embarrassed in meeting our current obligations.

We beg, therefore, that those indebted to us will remit at once, and not wait for further dunning of any kind whatever. We need your subscription now.

the ‘Lee camp Fair,’ held in Richmond, was a splendid success, and a very handsome sum was realized for the ‘Confederate Home.’ So soon as the plans of the committee are fully matured, we will announce them; but we may say that in the meantime more money will be needed to carry out these plans, and contributions to the fund are still in order.

the ‘soldiers' home of the State of Louisiana’ has been fully organized, with General F. T. Nichols as President, and John H. Murray as Treasurer, and we have received the report for the year ending 1st of May, 1884, which gives a most encouraging exhibit of its affairs.

They have twenty-two inmates of the ‘Home,’ and seem to have made all proper arrangements for their care, and admirable regulations for the management of the ‘Home.’

Colonel Heros von Borcke, the gallant and accomplished Prussian, who tendered his sword to the Confederacy and served with such distinction on the staff of General J. E. B. Stuart, is now on a visit to his old comrades, and has been received with open arms at Baltimore, Richmond, and at other points.

Confederates generally will give him a warm welcome and a hearty greeting.
