t, ever more destructive. The cannon on Round-Top volleyed and thundered. From Cemetery Ridge grapeshot and canister tore through our ranks. We marched, says Longstreet, through a fearful fire from the batteries in front and from Round-Top. The slaughter, he says, was terrible, the enfilade fire from batteries on Round-Top very destructive. But worse remained behind. From the stone wall which sheltered their ranks the hostile infantry poured down, as Longstreet says, a terrific fire. The hiss of bullets was incessant. Men fell at every step; they fell, I thought, like grass before the scythe. Such were the scenes which some of us witnessed that ame of his heroic deeds has spread through all the world. In every history they stand recorded. A generous foe unites with us to honor his memory. The stolid Longstreet kindles with enthusiasm to tell how the noble Armistead fell on Cemetery Ridge by the wheels of the enemy's cannon. And so, comrades, we present you now the

with the Army of the James, between him and Humphreys, and by Humphreys, upon the intrenchments about Burgess' Mill, whilst Sheridan, with the cavalry and the Fifth Corps, was to sweep around and clear out everything to the Appomattox River. Longstreet, not having found out that the Army of the James had been withdrawn from his front, though it had been withdrawn on the evening of March 27th, the seventh day before, remained on the Richmond and Bermuda lines, under the impression that he was being withdrawn, after Ord had gone in between them and Petersburg, and swept around to Sutherland Depot, on the Southside Railroad. Ord during the evening succeeded in capturing several redoubts to the northwest of the city, when, at last, Longstreet arrived with his two divisions and held a line protecting the city in that direction until night closed the engagement.

e have had a very hard time since we left Richmond. I have not slept In a tent since leaving there and have only been in three houses. We eat whatever we can get and sometimes the quality is anything but good and the supply scanty. This army has accomplished wonders and undergone the greatest amount of fatigue. On the 15th of October, 1862, Armistead's brigade was encamped near Winchester, Va. On that day Col. Hodges writes: On Monday last we had a grand review of our division, by Gen. Longstreet, who commands our corps d'armie. There were two members of the British Parliament present. We had about ten thousand men in line, and the whole passed off very well. It was quite an imposing sight. I suppose the Englishmen did not know what to make of such a dirty, ragged set of fellows. The orders forbade the barefooted men from going out. I think they ought to have let our army be seen just as it is. I have now some eighty men without shoes, notwithstanding that I have within the

as both parties have departed, it seems due to history that they should be given to the world. The letter written by Mr. Greeley concerning Mr. Breckinridge's return is addressed to Judge George Shea, of New York. This, and the letter inclosing it, written by Judge Shea to Mr. Breckinridge, are as follows: Office of the New York Tribune, New York, April 8, 1867. My friend,—Since nearly all the military chiefs of the South in our late struggle-Generals Lee, Johnston, Beauregard, Longstreet, &c.—have stoutly advised their people to accept their situation unreservedly, and organize their respective States, in accordance with the dictates of Congress, it seems to me a pity that the presence and counsel of General Breckinridge are wanting. We need them not in the South proper, but in his own Kentucky, where a most unfortunate attempt to perpetuate class distinctions, which have no longer any national justification or solid basis, threaten to perpetuate a fued and a struggle, wh

e enemy from hillock to hill, until finally they broke from Fairfax Courthouse for Washington. We wanted to see our friends in Maryland, so turned north by the Fryingpan Road, and at night stopped near the home of some of my men. Colonel, a man would say to me, my wife and children are just over that hill. I have not heard of them for months. Please get permission for me to go for a little while; I will surely be back before you move. Hardly knowing what to do, the next morning, I went to General Corse (we were happy to be under this gallant man even for a short time), and explained the situation to him. You are right, said he, but you must have General Longstreet's permission. He has just passed up the road. I put out after him, and found him, dismounted and alone. I asked permission to send out one or two men to warn some absentees, as we were about to move. Not a man, said he; better hold on to all you have got. These men joined us before night. We needed them.

s in line of battle, ready to meet the enemy. This was done with wonderful quickness and skill, but the enemy did not advance upon us. There were no other incidents that I remember worthy of mention during the day. Gordon, Early, Ewell (?), Longstreet and Lee. I do not think General Gordon ever intended in his book, to say anything that might reflect upon the memory or reputation of his two distinguished comrades, Generals Ewell and Early, for it would be directly in opposition to the spirit indicated in his article, where he speaks of General Longstreet, and says: It is a source of profound regret that he and his friends should have been into such unprofitable and ill tempered controversy with the friends of our immortal chieftain. He does, however, speak as follows: On the first day neither General Early nor General Ewell could possibly have been fully cognizant of the situation at the time I was ordered to halt. Then General Gordon goes on and describes the scene,

and his staff-officers have attributed to him. If he had done so, it would have been affectation. He knew that his and Longstreet's orders would carry Stuart for a while into a state of eclipse; around the enemy, out of sight, and out of communicaties to have read in General Lee's letter-book his instructions to Stuart to keep in close contact and communication with Longstreet. Now the contents of the letter-book have since been published and I have read the original copies. Heth's account of what he read in the book is pure fiction. Instead of ordering Stuart to keep on Longstreet's flank, he ordered him to leave Longstreet in Virginia, cross the Potomac, and join Ewell on the Susquehanna—a hundred miles away. It was all the same toLongstreet in Virginia, cross the Potomac, and join Ewell on the Susquehanna—a hundred miles away. It was all the same to Lee at what ford Stuart crossed the Potomac. Heth's letter was written to give information to the Count of Paris. It is the origin of his criticism of Stuart in his History of the War. As for cavalry there were as many with Ewell as there wer
