es. And as our readers get the same amount of matter, it is as convenient to them, and probably even more acceptable during the heated term. The paper of Colonel Roy on the conduct of General Hardee during the Atlanta campaign will attract wide attention. As Secretary of the Southern Historical Society, we, of course, expreno opinion on the merits of the unfortunate controversy which involves two of our most distinguished soldiers. But we may without impropriety call attention to Colonel Roy's paper as a fine specimen of the style which should characterize papers on points of controversy between Confederates. Able, earnest and pointed in vindicating the name and fame of his loved and honored chief and trusted friend, Colonel Roy is at the same time corteous in his expressions and parliamentary in his whole article — setting an example which those who write on controverted points might well imitate.

See General Hardee's telegram, in Appendix. Unfortunately, however, General Hardee, who had been unwell for several days, was obliged, at this critical hour, to leave his post; and the command of his forces devolved upon the officer ranking next under him, General L. McLaws. See Appendix for despatch of Major Roy, A. A. G. It is for this reason, no doubt, that the evacuation was not effected until the night of the 17th and the early morning of the 18th. The following telegrams, sent by General Beauregard to General Lee, so thoroughly explain the whole situation, that no further explanation seems necessary: 1. Columbia, S. C., Feb. 16th, 1865.
