e demonstration that marked it—more glorious in the significance of that demonstration. It was a history-making day, the record of which will be bound in the Golden Book of Southern memories, whose prologue is the story of the Southland's struggle for constitutional right, and whose other chapters tell of the unveiling of the Jackson, the Lee, the Wickham, the Hill, and the Howitzer monuments, and the obsequies of President Davis. Similar chapters will follow, when the Davis, Stuart, and Cooke monuments, a monument to the noble women of the South, and other memorials shall have been unveiled, and then time will write the epilogue in the single, but all—sufficient word—Vindicated!

s are looked for by the next flag of truce. They have had a hard time of it, and I hear that Gassell was at first rather harshly treated. You know that he has been made a commander, and deservedly so, I say. John Wilkiason has charge of the blockade runners at Wilmington. Lynch and Whiting, you know, had a blow up there, and I hear that the President had them both here for awhile. Bad boys, to be growling in school! Ben Loyall commands the ironclad Neuse, of two 6.4s, at Kingston, N. C. Cooke has the Albemarle, a similar vessel, at Halifax, N. C. No one has yet been ordered to the Virginia here. She will soon be ready for her officers and is perhaps the best and most reliable ironclad in the service. If you were not on more important duty, I am inclined to believe that you would have command of her. Captain Matthew Maury writes to me, under date of January 21st, that we have nothing to look for from England that money can't buy. His letter is rather gloomy in its tone. Charley
l or the Appomattox be crossed, was a matter of doubt. The rebel chief had anticipated his defeat, and dressed himself that morning in full uniform, with his finest sword, declaring that if forced to surrender, he would fall in harness; and when it was announced that his works were carried, he simply said: It has happened as I thought; the lines have been stretched until they broke. The statements in this chapter in regard to Lee's conduct and language are all taken from Pollard, McCabe, Cooke, or other rebel writers. He fled with his escort from one position to another before the victorious columns, and once the advancing batteries were opened on a house where he had halted, and he was driven by their fire still nearer in towards Petersburg. At first but little effort seems to have been made to resist the national progress. Lee had been composed all through this terrible morning, but it was with the dull, apathetic composure of despair. It was necessary, however, to make s
rown, in Chalmers, 264. His arraignment, his trial, and his execution, were scenes of wanton injustice. He was allowed no counsel; and, indeed, his death had been resolved upon beforehand, though even false witnesses did not substantiate the specific charges urged against him. His last thoughts reverted to Massachusetts. Go home to New England, and trust God there; it was his final counsel to his daughter. At the gallows, he was compelled to wait 1660 Oct. 14. while the body of his friend Cooke, who had just been hanged, was cut down and quartered before his eyes. How like you this? cried the executioner, rubbing his bloody hands. I thank God, replied the martyr, I am not terrified at it; you may do your worst. To his friends he said, Weep not for me; my heart is full of comfort; and he smiled as he made himself ready to leave the world. Even death could not save him from his enemies; the bias of party corrupts the judgment, and cruelty justified itself by defaming its victim.
and the first patentees, who promised to enlarge the king's dominion at their own charges, provided they and their posterity might enjoy certain privileges. Yet Somers resisted the restoration of the charter of Massachusetts, pleading its imperfections. The charter sketched by Chap. XIX.} Sir George Treby was rejected by the privy council for its liberality; and that which was finally conceded Correct Ebeling, i. 1015, by I. Mather's Account p. 9. reserved such powers to the crown, that Cooke, the popular envoy, declined to accept it. Somers and King William were less liberal to Massachusetts than Clar- 1691. Oct. 7. endon and Charles II. The freemen of Massachusetts, under the old charter, had elected their governor annually; he was henceforward appointed by the king during the royal pleasure. The governor had been but first among the magistrates; he was now the representative of English royalty, and could convene, adjourn, or dissolve the general court. The freemen had, b

It was demanded by St. John, in 1711; and Louis XIV. promised his good offices to procure this advantage for Cooke's Bolingbroke, i. 175. the English. Her Britannic majesty did offer and undertake,—such are the words of that treaty,—by persons whom she shall appoint, to bring into the West Indies of America belonging to his Catholic majesty, in the space of thirty years, one hundred and forty-four thousand negroes, at the rate of four thousand eight hundred in each of the said thirty years,—paying, on four thousand of them, a duty of thirty-three and a third dollars a head.

brigades, each brigade of about six regiments; but Washington was still unable to return the fire of the enemy, or do more than exchange a few shot by scouting parties; for when, with considerable difficulty, he obtained an accurate return of the amount of powder on hand, he found much less than half a ton; not more than enough to furnish his men with nine rounds of cartridge. The extremity of danger could not be divulged, even while he was forced to apply in every direction for relief. To Cooke, the governor of Rhode Island, he wrote on the fourth of August, for every pound of powder and lead that could possibly be spared from that colony; no quantity, however small, was beneath notice; the extremity of the case called loudly for the most strenuous exertions, and did not admit of the least delay. He invoked the enterprise of John Brown and other merchants of Providence; he sent an address to the inhabitants of Bermuda, from which island a vessel, under Orde of Philadelphia, actual
