ut in a philosophical and impartial spirit. How far the learned author has succeeded in his avowed purpose is altogether another matter. Indeed it requires only a glance through these volumes to see that instead of writing in a philosophical and impartial spirit, Dr. Draper is so bitter a partisan, that it seems simply impossible for him to make accurate statements about even the most trivial matters. We may take occasion to pay our respects to Dr. Draper more fully hereafter, and to show how his narration of the causes and events of the war is so colored by partisan prejudice as to render it utterly worthless as history. Books received. From the publishers (Jos. H. Coates & Co., Philadelphia,) we have received the second volume of the translation of the History of the civil war in America, by Comte de Paris. From Geo. W. Harris, of Albemarle, The Confederate soldier, by Rev. J. E. Edwards. These books, and any others which may be sent us, shall have due notice.

an impassible abatis in front of the works, which consisted of star forts connected by heavy entrenchments, there was every evidence that the forts were manned and supplied with guns sufficient to repel any assault; an almost continuous fire was kept up at us with artillery. Early's object being to make a diversion merely to draw troops from General Lee's front, he remained until the night of the 12th, and then, a council of officers having approved the move, fell back in the night towards Edwards' ferry, reaching Seneca creek, twenty-seven miles from Washington, at sunrise. The same day he continued to the Potomac, which he crossed next morning (14th), and went into camp near Leesburg. Here he remained till the 16th, when he crossed the Blue Ridge in direction of Winchester at Snicker's gap, and camped beyond the Shenandoah. The enemy pursued, and on the 18th he fought a battle at Chapman's ford near by, repulsing the enemy. But he was being sorely pressed, as a heavy column was

Several ministers testified as to the occasional necessity for the carrying of weapons by ministers, especially on the Mexican frontier, where there were bands of men sworn to kill every American they met. Rev. Mr. Langhorne said, after what he had learned at Conference, he would, when he got home to Lynchburg, buy a revolver. (Laughter) Rev. Mr. Edwards said that the character of Mr. Clark was excellent, and the object of his going to Mexico as a Knight of the Golden Circle, would have been to carry there a pure Gospel. Rev. Dr. Smith said that any expression of this Conference on the subject, would have no reference to the approval or disapproval of the Knights of the Golden Circle. He thought the practice of carrying arms by ministers should be countenanced only on the basis suggested by Bishop Paine. We were going, as a peopl
