elds, through a grove, across a creek, up a little slope and into the town itself. The pursuit was so close and hot that, though my gun came into battery several times, yet I could not get in a shot. Gordon was the most glorious and inspiring thing I ever looked upon. He was riding a beautiful coal-black stallion, captured at Winchester, that had belonged to one of the Federal generals in Milroy's army — a majestic animal, whose neck was clothed with thunder. From his grand joy in In Scribner's for June, 1903, General Gordon mentions this horse, describing him very much as I have done. He adds that he only rode him in one battle; that he behaved well at first under artillery fire, but later, encountering a fierce fire of musketry, he turned tail and bolted to the rear a hundred yards or more. I am glad I did not witness this disgraceful fall. Nothing could have been more superb than his bearing so long as he was under my eye. In battle, he must have been a direct descenda

ed Thomas to withdraw from the cedar woods, and form a line on the open ground between them and the Nashville pike, his artillery taking a position on an elevation a little to the southwest of that highway. In this movement the brigade of regulars, under Lieutenant-Colonel Shepherd, were exposed to a terrible fire, and lost twenty-two officers and five hundred and two men in killed and wounded. It held its ground against overwhelming odds, with the assistance of the brigades of Beatty and Scribner, and the batteries of Loomis and Guenther. The position now taken by Thomas was firmly held, and enabled Rosecrans to readjust the line of battle to the state of affairs. But the dreadful struggle was not over.. Palmer's division, which held the right of the National left wing, and which had moved at eight o'clock in the morning to cover Negley's left, and successfully fought and repulsed an attack on his rear, was assailed with great fierceness on his front and right flank (which was e
nel Sill found two pieces of artillery in position and opened upon it without reply. As I expected, they threw heavy re-enforcements to that point lastnight expecting the attack to be made there. Colonel Scott and Captain Shaeffer's Pennsylvania cavalry were sent from Jasper by a path through the mountain, which resulted in surprising and capturing the enemy's pickets at the ferry and preventing the further retreat of Adams' men over the river. My main force came by Anderson's road. Colonel Scribner's command is occupying an important point, which I omit alluding to, except by saying that it is for the benefit of Starnes and his cavalry, who are now at Altamont. We captured a large number of rebel cavalry pickets and scouts; also a large quantity of contraband stores. The Union people are wild with joy, while the rebels are panic-stricken. Colonel Morgan is in Chattanooga; also General Adams. The enemy's force there is about 3,000, with ten pieces of artillery. The gunboat

Shepherd, and consisting of two battalions of the Eighteenth infantry, one battalion of the Fifteenth, one of the Sixteenth, and one of the Nineteenth, was ordered to support the batteries.

The regulars, Twenty-fifth, Sixteenth, Eighteenth, and Nineteenth, under Col. Shepherd, on his right, liked it no better. Youthful Beatty, Third Ohio, commanding the Seventeenth brigade, and Scribner with the Ninth, were also in ill-humor about it, but there was no help for it. After debouching from the cedars, Loomis and Guenther could find no good position at hand for their batteries, and the whole line fell back under severe fighting, the

Secret history.[From the Mobile (Alabama) Sycle, January 29.] Scribner's monthly for February has an article entitled A piece of secret history, by Colonel Charles C. Jones, Jr., of the late Confederate army, containing the following letter from General Robert E.

Orders may be sent either to the Publishers or to the Compiler Box 61, Richmond, Va. Scribner's monthly for January has been received and is a rich number, beautifully illustrated and full of good things. The United States Life Saving Service, Success with Small Fruits. Young Artists' Life in New York, The Acadians in Louisiana, A Rend tells a good deal of the dissensions among the generals of the Army of the Potomac at this time, and narrates a good many things which form pleasant reading for an old Confederate, and some of which we may hereafter have occasion to quote. Scribner is certainly among the very best of our monthlies, and it is just to say that is not often marred by such unfair and unjust attacks on our section as Dr. Holland had last year, and for which our Southern papers generally took him so severely to

has made this magazine, which the Scribners prepare for children, famous all over the world. We have been receiving it at our home for some years, and the sparkling eyes with which the little folks greet it, and the deep interest with which the grown people read it, arc sufficient evidence of its popularity. But, what is better, it gives us pleasure to testify that its freedom from sectional or partisan bias, its pure moral tone, and its high literary character, are such that we can with confidence recommend it as a visitor to the homes of our people, which is more than we can say of many similar publications. Scribner's monthly for February is a really superb number, and the first paper of Eugene Schuyler on Peter the Great, and Francis R. Upton's authorative account of Edison's electric light, are alone worth the price of the subscription for the whole year. But these are but specimens of the good things with which the Scribners crowd their magazine from month to month.

e and pains-taking historian. The Morning News steam printing house of Savannah has gotten up the pamphlet, with a steel portrait of De Soto as frontispiece, in a manner every way creditable to the enterprise and skill of all concerned. Scribner's monthly for April fully sustains the reputation of this superbly illustrated and widely popular magazine. This number completes volume XIX of the monthly, and a glance at the index for the volume shows that in variety of topics, beauty of illustrations, literary finish and practical value, Scribner deserves the wide reputation it has won — a reputation which has swelled its leaders to hundreds of thousands in America, and which has given it already over ten thousand subscribers in England. St. Nicholas--the queen of Magazines for children — seems to increase in interest from month to month, and if we are to judge by the sparkling eyes and warm expressions of delight with which our little folks greeted the April number, that is
