der No. 16, to the Army of Northern Virginia, which says: Let every soldier remember that on his courage and fidelity depends all that makes life worth living, the freedom of his country, the honor of his people and the security of his home. Could they fight for a better cause, and has not such a cause made men superhumanly brave in all ages? Did the North produce in their respective sphere men of such extraordinary military genius as Lee, Jackson, A. S. Johnston, Stuart, Forest and Mosby? No intelligent, candid, Northern man of to-day claims that it did. When I look at the snap judgments on posterity, statues to Northern generals (though most of them are Southern men) in Washington, I wonder how posterity will treat these outrages on justice. They will not find an impartial, competent military historian that will give to one of them, except, perhaps, McClellan, one particle of military genius. These, I believe, to be the true reasons for the long-delayed success of the No

that the result May have been different had the masterly statecraft of the Hon. R. Barnwell Rhett been Adopted—The Queen, Prince Albert, Palmerston. Cobden and bright for the North, and the negroes, while the Tories warmly approved the cause of the South—The status of France and the views of Napoleon—Sharp criticism of President Davis and his Cabinet. Was it ever before that a nation at its birth was ready with a million young horsemen to ride across its borders as Forrest and Morgan and Mosby rode, gathering arms and blankets and horses for wider range of unparalleled enterprise in the enemy's territory? Was ever invaded nation firm in its foundations to drive back the million young horsemen from the farms of the South! When Robert Barnwell Rhett in masterly statecraft, at the outset, would prepare compensatory treaty rights for the commercial powers of Western Europe in Confederate ports, thus to hold them safe from hostile blockade; and when this measure of statecraft was r<

Biographical. Dr. John W. Harris was born in Augusta county, Virginia, July 16, 1848. His father was Dr. Clement R. Harris, M. D., surgeon in charge of the gangrene ward in Dellivan Hospital, at Charlottesville, Va. His mother was Eliza McCue, of Scotch descent. His early boyhood was spent near Brandy Station, Culpeper county, Va. This home was broken up by the war. In 1863-64 he entered the Confederate States service from Washington and Lee University, Lexington, Va., enlisting with Mosby. He could, in his vivid and versatile manner, tell of his experience with this command, which was varied and oftentimes savored of hairbreadth escapes. In January, 1865, he received from his congressman the appointment as midshipman in the Confederate States Navy. He passed his examination before Secretary Mallory and went aboard the school ship, Patrick Henry, at Rocketts, James river, Richmond, Va., where he remained until a few days before the evacuation of Richmond, when, with many o

el covered with blue cloth in vest fashion, which had been thrown away in flight by the Federal soldiers. They were of the style of those secondly described in the following article, which appeared in the Times-Dispatch of July 31st, 1904. Two instances of the use of such armor are given by John W. Munson in his Recollections of a Mosby Guerilla, Munsey's Magazine, February, 1905, p. 784. One taken from the saddle of Major J. S. Reed, the Federal officer who fell in the engagement with Mosby's men at Dranesville, February 22, 1864. Lieutenant Ben. Palmer says that he had them at his home [in Richmond] and that he and others often amused themselves by shooting at Reed's breast plates. The other instance: On the same day [February 22, 1864] Fred Hipkins, of our command, captured one of Reed's men who had on breast plates. Many surviving Confederates will tell of having seen these breast plates during the War of 1861-5. The editor has since that period seen several of suc
