nd others of the Illinois delegation as to the proper pronunciation of the name of their State. Some insisted it was Illinoy, others as stoutly that it was Illinois. Hardin at length appealed to the venerable John Quincy Adams. If one were to judge from the character of the representatives in this Congress from that State, said the old man, with a malicious smile, I should decide unhesitatingly that the proper pronunciation was All noise! In the Augusta (Ga.) Chronicle, of the 17th of June, 1865, there appeared a report of this conference, purporting to have been written out from the lips of Mr. Stephens, so characteristic of Mr. Lincoln, that I subjoin the following extracts:-- The three Southern gentlemen met Mr. Lincoln and Mr. Seward, and after some preliminary remarks, the subject of peace was opened. Mr. Stephens, well aware that one who asks much may get more than he who confesses to humble wishes at the outset, urged the claims of his section with that skill and
ecai and Josiah Lincoln intimately. They were excellent men, plain, moderately educated, candid in their manners and intercourse, and looked upon as honorable as any men I have ever heard of. Mordecai was the oldest son, and his father having been killed by the Indians before the law of primogeniture was repealed, he inherited a very competent estate. The others were poor. Mordecai was celebrated for his bravery, and had been in the early campaigns of the West. --Henry Pirtle, letter, June 17, 1865, Ms. both remaining in Kentucky, became the heads of good-sized families, and although never known or heard of outside the limits of the neighborhoods in which they lived, were intelligent, well-to-do men. In Thomas, roving and shiftless, to whom was reserved the honor of an illustrious paternity, are we alone interested.

ston, in South Carolina, and boasted that he was the person who fired the first shot at Sumter. Mr. Ely, member of Congress, who was among the prisoners, speaks of him in his Journal, kept while in confinement in Richmond, as a patriarchal citizen, whose long locks extended over his shoulders, whitened by the snows of more than seventy winters. Ruffin did not appear prominently in the war that ensued. He survived the conflict, in which he lost all of his property. On Saturday, the 17th of June, 1865, he committed suicide by blowing off the top of his head with a gun, at the residence of his son, near Danville, in Virginia. He left a note, in which he said--I cannot survive the liberties of my country. The wretched man was then almost eighty years of age. He had now hastened from his home in Virginia to Columbia, to urge the importance of immediate secession. I have studied the question now before the country, he said, for years. It has been the one great idea of my life. The

A little more than four years afterward, the remains of these first martyrs were laid beneath a beautiful monument of Concord granite, erected, to commemorate their history, in Merrimack Square, in Lowell. It was formally dedicated on the 17th of June, 1865, in the presence of nearly twenty thousand people, who were addressed by the same chief magistrate of the Commonwealth who had besought the Mayor of Baltimore to send the bodies of the young men tenderly to him. In the mean time Maryland haabove these is a plinth, on two sides of which are bronzed medallions of the arms of Massachusetts and the City of Lowell. The engraving is from a photograph kindly sent to me by Major-General Butler. this Monument was dedicated on the 17th of June, 1865, with imposing ceremonies by the Masonic fraternity, a large number of military companies, and citizens, and the Otto (singing) Club. Governor Andrew delivered an oration, after which Lieutenant-Colonel Thomas J. Morris presented the Maryl
ordered to Virginia, the One Hundred and Fourteenth embarked for Washington on July 15, 1864, and after marching through Maryland, fought under Sheridan in his famous Shenandoah campaign against Early. At the battle of the Opequon, the regiment lost 185 men killed and wounded--three-fifths of those engaged — eliciting by its gallantry a complimentary notice from the Division General. At Cedar Creek it lost 21 killed, 86 wounded, and 8 missing. The regiment was mustered out at Elmira on June 17, 1865. One Hundred and Fifteenth New York Infantry--Iron hearts.

Whitney, Addison O. 1839- Soldier; born in Waldo, Me., Oct. 30, 1839; became a mechanic in Lowell, Mass.; and joined the 6th Massachusetts Volunteer Militia. He accompanied the regiment on its march to the defence of the national capital, and while passing through Baltimore, Md., April 19, 1861, was killed during the attack on the regiment by the mob. Luther C. Ladd (born in Alexandria, N. H., Dec. 22, 1843), also a mechanic in Lowell and a comrade of Whitney, fell in the same attack, pierced by several bullets. These were the first casualties in the National army in the Civil War. The commonwealth of Massachusetts and the city of Lowell caused the remains of the two first martyrs to be placed beneath an imposing monument of Concord granite, erected in Merrimac Square, Lowell, and dedicated June 17, 1865.
