Fitting, then, it was that a father of that church should chant the requiem for the dead cause, he had loved and labored for while living; that Father Ryan should bless and bury its conquered banner, when the bitter day came that saw it furled forever.

nlistment; that I could not entertain the proposition. We stayed overnight at Fort Fillmore, in pleasant meeting with old comrades, saddened by the reflection that it was the last, and a prelude to occurrences that must compel the ignoring of former friendships with the acceptance of opposing service. Speaking of the impending struggle, I was asked as to the length of the war, and said, At least three years, and if it holds for five you may begin to look for a dictator, at which Lieutenant Ryan, of the Seventh Infantry, said, If we are to have a dictator, I hope that you may be the man. My mind was relieved by information that my resignation was accepted, to take effect on the 1st of June. In our travel next day we crossed the line into the State of Texas. From the gloomy forebodings of old friends, it seemed at El Paso that we had entered into a different world. All was enthusiasm and excitement, and songs of Dixie and the South were borne upon the balmy air. But the T

ommand. I am indebted chiefly to Captain M. 0. Tracy, acting Major, and in charge of the left wing, for the steadiness with which it moved forward and for its handsome behavior on retiring. This officer has been mentioned in every report of various battles in which the regiment has been engaged-Shiloh, Farmington, Perryville — and having lost his leg in this action, I would especially commend him to the favorable consideration of our superior officers. To Captains King, Bishop, and Ryan, the praise of having borne them themselves with great efficiency and marked courage is especially due. Adjutant Hugh H. Bein acted with becoming coolness and efficiency, and to the color-bearer, Sergeant Roger Tammure, and Sergeant-Major John Farrell, great credit is due for their disregard of personal danger and soldierly conduct. We moved to the rear of our artillery and were no longer, on that day, under the infantry fire of the enemy. Lieutenants Hepburn and Smith were killed in t

arties bearing off wounded were shot down as soon as they entered the open field. Many, therefore, of those put down as missing, were killed or wounded in this affair. Out of twenty-eight officers who went into the fight, fourteen were wounded, and most of them severely, and as the event may prove, I fear, mortally. This was in the Thirteenth Louisiana volunteers, Major Charles Guillet, of whose conduct I cannot speak in terms too high. The regiment behaved throughout like veterans. Captains Ryan, Lipscomb, King, Bishop, and McGrath, and Lieut. Levy displayed distinguished steadiness and courage. The loss of this regiment was, in two short actions, lasting both together not more than an hour, say nineteen officers and three hundred and thirty-two men killed, wounded, and missing-losing as many as some brigades. Major Zacharie's position enabled him to drive in the skirmishers of the enemy and to hold him in check in front of our batteries for some time. After entering the wo
e charge passing into the shoulder of the horse. Finding that the shot had not taken effect, Martin clubbed his musket, and Lieut. Carruthers fired upon him again, and thinking his pistol exhausted, threw it into his face, inflicting a severe wound. Martin then wheeled and ran. The alarm was given by Lieut. Carruthers as soon as possible, and some of the guards who were behind at the time the affray took place, upon finding the condition of affairs, immediately started for dogs to follow the trail. Lieut. Carruthers hurried to town as rapidly as the condition of his horse would permit, and gave notice to the members of the company of what had transpired, and in half an hour Capt. Ryan had forty or fifty men in pursuit. Martin was followed until daybreak next morning, but escaped. It seems that he obtained a horse from a negro of William Allen, and thus evaded his pursuers. The negro states that he was bleeding freely when he saw him, and that he was evidently severely wounded.

t needed a condition of human perfectibility, but only so much of virtue as will control vice and teach the mercenary and self-seeking that power and distinction and honor will be awarded to patriotism, capacity and integrity. To you, self-sacrificing, self-denying defenders of imperishable truths and inalienable rights, I look for the performance of whatever man can do for the welfare and happiness of his country. In the language of a gifted poet of Mississippi-- It is not for thee to falter, It is not for thee to palter, In this crisis — for thy mission is the mightiest of Time; It is thine to lead a legion, Out of every realm and region, In the glorious march sunward to the golden heights sublime. Father Ryan was then called out and made an eloquent address, in which he paid a high tribute to the patriotism, service and personal character of Mr. Davis--saying, among other things, that during his long and distinguished public career he had never once been investigated

on, we would express our growing conviction of the importance of an enterprise which has for its object the vindication of as pure a cause as was ever submitted to the arbitrament of the sword, and the furnishing of the material for a true history of as noble a band of patriot heroes as ever marched or fought in all the tide of time. By order of the Executive Committee. J. William Jones, Secretary Southern Historical Society. General Early, President of the Society, explained that Father Ryan, of Mobile, had first promised to make the oration on this occasion; that his physicians having forbidden him to use his voice, he had promised to send an original poem (telegraphing as late as Monday that it would certainly be here); and that the poem had failed to come by some unexplained cause. General Early submitted a few remarks as to the value and importance of the work of the Society. Dr. J. L. M. Curry submitted the following resolution, which was unanimously adopted: Res

, by the chivalric and lamentened Hood, cannot but be of deep interest; that his side of the story, however men may differ in reference to certain unfortunate controversies of which it treats, will be valuable material for the future historian; and that as the proceeds of the sale go to the relief of his helpless orphans, the book ought to have a wide sale in every section of the country, and ought especially to find a place in the homes of all dwellers in the land he loved so well. Father Ryan's poems, in a beautiful volume, embelished with superb steel engravings of the author and of The conquered banner, has just come to us from Randolph & English, Richmond.
