federates is a fitting presence in which to real the memory of one who, among all the brave hearts that followed Lee and Jackson, was unsurpassed by none in a romantic devotion to the lost cause. The mountains that look down upon us, this beautifulmaster in the army of the Shenandoah. His first lesson in war was learned under that matchless captain of the art, Stonewall Jackson. For it was on the classic field of Manassas, while acting as aid to Jackson, that he received his baptism of fireJackson, that he received his baptism of fire, and caught the soldier's inspiration from the example of his great commander. In the fall of 1861, at the organization of Chew's Battery, he was elected a lieutenant, and I need hardly add that for the next three years he bore no small part in rm, yet, far in advance, the smoke of Chew's guns told where the heaviest blows would fall. In the retreat, too, though Jackson moved with wonderful speed, yet, Parthian like, he fought as he fled, and though often threatened by overwhelming foes,

the bloody footsteps of his men, waked the frozen echoes of the morning with the thunder of his guns and the sound of a great victory, and thus poured the living tide of hope into the bosoms of our forefathers. While there are monuments to him—one the highest on earth; while a monument has lately gone up to his mother; while monuments to our heroes stand all over the land, yet we want a monument in which should be represented the mothers, wives, daughters, and sisters of R. E. Lee, Stonewall Jackson, Albert Sidney Johnston, Jubal A. Early, G. T. Beauregard, J. E. B. Stuart, George E. Pickett, Fitz Lee, and all the mothers, wives, sisters, and daughters of the Confederate Soldiers, living and dead; in short, to the Confederate Woman, looking as she did, when, with fair hands and bright eyes, she worked the banners and gave them to the boys to be unfurled in the bloody tempest; looking as she did when the shouts of victory throbbed her true, loving heart and flushed her cheeks; look

ried well. The fifth may have done likewise, although accurate trace of her has been lost. General Pillow left his family so poorly provided for that they were compelled to sell his library and his house, also, although friends rebought it by subscription. General T. C. Hindman died penniless, so did General Dick Taylor, and his two daughters made their home with an aunt. He published a book, but it did not prove a monetary success, and left him in worse circumstances than before. Stonewall Jackson left his wife and daughter without means, but they were reasonably helped by legacies. General Polk left nothing to his family, but his son, Dr. Polk, located in New York, and built up a very large and profitable practice. General Forrest, who became a farmer, labored hard to succeed as a planter, but at his death left only a meagre inheritance to his family. Mrs. General Ewell, who died three days after her husband, owned a very considerable property in St. Louis, and maintained a

ted blows of superior numbers, has grown faint. Already, time lends to the events of that struggle, which were the most energetic and tumultuous in their accomplishment, the air of repose. The South, inspired by lofty ideals of duty and stimulated by precious faith, has done well in preserving, amidst poverty and toil, the wholesome truths of that great struggle. The fullness of time has come. The daughters and granddaughters of the regiments that followed the leadership of Lee and Jackson, Branch and Bragg, upon the crested ridge amid the stormy presence of Battle—the women of our State have set up a stone for a pillar, to testify to unborn ages our reverence for our dead. Jacob, who is woven into the text and fibre of the Book of Genesis as a thread of gold may be woven into cloth, set up a stone to commemorate a solemn epoch in his life, and named the place whereon the stone was set up—Bethel. Verily, there is no new thing under the sun. In the vision of John, that

tured Grant's entire beef supply. Colonel Cardwell's thrilling story. [from the Charleston, S. C., News and Courier, Oct. 10, 1894.] The greatest cattle raid of the War—2,486 beeves driven from Coggin's Point into the Confederate lines. After that fateful day, May 11, 1864, when the bullet of the enemy took from the cavalry corps its great commander, J. E. B. Stuart, at Yellow Tavern, that man who Longstreet said was the greatest cavalryman America ever saw; that man upon whom Jackson threw his mantle, like Elijah of old; that man upon whom General Lee depended for eyes and ears—General Lee did not have to look for his successor; no, he was close at hand, and had carved his name with his sabre high in the list of the world's great soldiers. It was Wade Hampton upon whom the mantle fell, and who was worthier? We have heard and do know of the achievements of this command and that command, from the pens of officers and privates, and I am glad it is so. I read everything o

It was Jackson's line of Virginians, rather than Jackson himself, that resembled a stone wall standing on the plains of Manassas, while the storm of battle hissed and hurled and thundered around them; and, if I mention the name of Jackson rather than that of the ruddy-faced boy who fell, pierced through the brain, and was buried, on one of Virginia', wild weeds are growing, it is not because the one was more heroic than the other, but because Jackson, by his great prominence, more fully embodies before the eyes of the world the patriotism and cn such a marked degree to the pleasure of the occasion was the band organized in memory of Stonewall Jackson, from whom it takes its name, and composed of prominent business and professional men in t
