or by the women of the South till the end of the war. My sister's white family at the time of our arrival consisted of herself and two little children, Tom and Julia, and Mr. Butler's invalid sister, Mrs. Julia Meals, a pious widow of ample means which it was her chief ambition in life to spend in doing good. The household wasabode there. Jan. 1st, 1865. Sunday. Pine Bluff A beautiful clear day, but none of us went to church. Sister was afraid of the bad roads, Metta, Mrs. Meals, Julia and I all sick. I think I am taking measles. Jan. 1 , Wednesday I am just getting well of measles, and a rough time I had of it. Measles is no such small ad to go off with the Yankees when Mrs. Butler had her in Marietta last summer. Her mother went, and tried to persuade Harriet to go, too, but she said: I loves Miss Julia a heap better'n I do you, and remained faithful. Sister keeps her here because Mrs. Butler is a refugee and without a home herself. Jan. 16, Monday Sis

lked home with Metta and me. It was nearly three o'clock before we got to bed, and then we were both too tired to sleep. My legs ached as if they had been in the stocks, but when I become more accustomed to hard work, I hope it won't be so bad. I think it is an advantage to clean up the house ourselves, sometimes, for we do it so much better than the negroes. The children are having a great time. Cousin Mary gave them a little party this evening, and they have two or three every week. Julia is a famous belle among the little boys. Aug. 23, Wednesday Up very early, sweeping and cleaning the house. Our establishment has been reduced from 25 servants to 5, and two of these are sick. Uncle Watson and Buck do the outdoor work, or rather the small part of it that can be done by two men. The yard, grove, orchards, vineyards, and garden, already show sad evidences of neglect. Grace does the washing and milks the cows, mammy cooks, and Charity does part of the housework, when

was President of what is now Washington and Lee University. Dr. Junkin was an earnest Union man, and, at the breaking out of the war, resigned his position, and went back to Pennsylvania; but it is said the loyalty of the old gentleman was not proof against the pride he felt in his famous son-in-law. Major Jackson's wife soon died. He then married a daughter of Rev. Dr. Morrison, another Presbyterian clergyman, of Charlotte, North Carolina. She now lives in Charlotte, with her only child, Julia, who was not six months old when her father died at Chancellorsville. In 1857 Major Jackson went to Europe. While in France, he rode on horseback, with some French officers, over the field of Waterloo. It is said he seemed perfectly familiar with the topography of the ground and the maneuvres of the two armies, and sharply criticised one of the Emperor's movements, by saying, There's where Napoleon blundered. Such presumption was unheard of since the time the young Corsican, in Italy, cr

r her cradle, watching her with a face beaming with admiration and happiness. This visit was a source of unalloyed delight to him. His first care was to make arrangements for the baptism of the child; for the uncertainties of the day warned him that both the parents might not speedily meet again to concur in the sacred rite. He therefore caused his chaplain to administer baptism to it at the quarters of Mrs. Jackson, among a small circle of their personal friends. Such was his devotion to duty, that the attractions of his family made slight change in his busy habits; and his time was employed as strictly as ever, in the care of his command. After the labors of the day were completed, he was accustomed to leave his tent, and dine, with one or two comrades, with Mrs. Jackson, spending his evenings with her, chiefly in joyous romps with little Julia. She, on her part, immediately formed the closest intimacy with her new admirer, and learned to prefer his caresses to all others.

at such a critical moment. Why, it was the great chance of his life to distinguish himself. Additional instructions were at once telegraphed to the shore batteries to act with all possible vigor. Mrs. Grant, who was one of the most composed of those present, now drew her chair a little nearer to the general, and with her mild voice inquired, Ulyss, what had I better do? The general looked at her for a moment, and then replied in a half-serious and half-teasing way, Well, the fact is, Julia, you ought n't to be here. Dunn now spoke up and said: Let me have the ambulance hitched up, and drive Mrs. Grant back into the country far enough to be out of reach of the shells. Oh, their gunboats are not down here yet, answered the general; and they must be stopped at all hazards. Additional despatches were sent, and a fresh cigar was smoked, the puffs of which showed even an increased rapidity. In about two hours it was reported that only one of the enemy's boats was below the obst

sband, we went rather on a business errand, and I did not ask for Mrs. Lincoln. And I didn't even know she was aboard, added Sherman. Well, you are a pretty pair! exclaimed Mrs. Grant. I do not see how you could have been so neglectful. Well, Julia, said her husband, we are going to pay another visit in the morning, and we'll take good care then to make amends for our conduct to-day. And now, let us talk further about the immediate movements of my army, said Sherman. Perhaps you don't wanthers, held the destiny of the nation in their hands. Upon the return of the generals and the admiral to headquarters, they entered the general-in-chiefs hut, where Mrs. Grant and one or two of us were sitting. The chief said to his wife: Well, Julia, as soon as we reached the boat this morning I was particular to inquire after Mrs. Lincoln, and to say that we desired to pay our respects to her. The President went to her state-room, and soon returned, saying that she was not well, and asking

When General Jackson arrived at the field hospital his arm was amputated, and he seemed to rally somewhat, and was most anxious to get on by easy journeys to Lexington. The proximity of the enemy made his removal also desirable, and it was determined to remove him to Guinea Station. On the way pneumonia set in, and all now felt this precious life hung on a thread. Mrs. Jackson had been sent for, and came, bringing baby Julia. When the baby was set on his bedside, her father caressed her with his wounded hand, murmuring in a faint voice, Little darling, from time to time. Now his darling is dead in her beauty, and it may be that he is teaching her the song of the Redeemed in the mansion prepared for her. He rendered thanks for every service performed by those about him, and many times reaffirmed his submission and trust in God, begged his wife to speak aloud, because he wanted to hear every word she said.

er. And yet they say we have no feelings! The relation of these facts so excited Malinda, that it was with difficulty that she could compose herself to conclude the narrative. I told her to confine herself now to her personal history. Slavery in Kansas. I was taken to Fort Leavenworth some two or three years--it may be more — before the Mexican war. My oldest boy was three years old then; now he is twenty-two. My oldest boy, as I said, was kept at home. My youngest child, Julia, was about three years old; she died about two years afterwards. Georgy was but a boy. He is still in slavery. Oh! how I used to worry! Oh! I was n't nobody. It did n't seem as if I keered for anything or anybody in the world. I was worrying about my husband and boy. Then he treated me badly, and she treated me badly. I was well clothed, and well fed; they couldn't have starved me if they had wanted to; for I was their body servant and housekeeper, and had everything to look after.
