We hold ourselves prepared to show that in his treatment of the relative numbers of the two armies he has fallen into the almost universal error of Northern writers in underestimating Federal and exaggerating Confederate numbers; that in his attacks on General J. E. B. Stuart he is as unjust as he is bitter; that in his vivid description of Ewell's precipitate flight from Bristoe station he has been grossly imposed on by some romancer ; that in his patriotic outburst against the damnable conspiracies for the overthrow of the Government, which were wont to be hatched at Warrenton Sulphur Springs by the Lees, the Hamptons and others, he allows the zeal of the partisan to blind the judgment of the historian; and that in other statements he has been misled.

Operations of General J. E. B. Stuart before Chancellorsville. By Adjutant R. T. Hubard, of the Third Virginia Cavalry. The following extract was clipped from the Richmond (Virginia) Daily Whig, of July 31, 1879: Mahone at Chancellorsville. Colonel William E. Cameron, in Philadelphia Weekly Times. Meantime, what of the army thus beset and imperilled? We have said that General Slocum's column encountered no opposition in the tedious and circuitous march to Kelly's, or in effecting the passage of two difficult streams. The Southern historians have either omitted remark on this subject or have implied that General Lee received opportune intelligence of what was passing on his left. Neither the records nor events themselves justify this view of the case. General Stuart, usually so vigilant, seems on this occasion to have been surprised. General Hooker says that four hours after his three corps had crossed the Rappahannock the Southern cavalry were still picketing Ric

eneral Superintendent of the Louisville and Cincinnati Short Line and the L. C. and Lexington railway, placed us under obligations for courtesies, cordially and politely extended, when several weeks ago we had occasion to pass over his admirably managed roads. During A recent visit to Louisville and Lexington, Kentucky, we found it very pleasant to meet in the former city Major W. O. Dod, President; Major E. H. McDonald, Secretary, and Hon. H. W. Bruce, an active member, of the Louisville Branch of our Society; and in the latter city, G. W. Ranck, Secretary of the Kentucky Historical Society; Major H. B. McClellan, formerly of General J. E. B. Stuart's staff, and Captain C. H. Morgan, formerly of General John H. Morgan's staff, and to receive from them all, not only personal courtesies, but assurances of valuable help in our great work. Judge Bruce, Major Dod, Major McClellan, and Captain Morgan all promised us papers which will prove of great interest and real historic value.

liamentary in his whole article — setting an example which those who write on controverted points might well imitate. Major H. B. Mcclellan, so widely known and esteemed as the gallant and able Adjutant-General of the cavalry corps, Army of Northern Virginia; of Lexington, Kentucky, has accepted an invitation to address the Virginia Division, Army of Northern Virginia Association, at its next reunion in November. He has fitly chosen as his theme, The services and character of General J. E. B. Stuart. This theme, in the hands of the gallant soldier who rode at Stuart's side — the accomplished writer who has since been an earnest student of the events of the war, and an able contributor to its history — will be handled to the delight of the Association, and will be a valuable addition to the true story of our grand old army. Renewals or New subscribers were never more in order than during this heated term when our receipts are unusually light, but our expenses go on as u<
