It rained most of the day, but was not too wet for many callers, and another long walk in the afternoon through this pretty little town. The two female colleges have been turned into hospitals, one of which is under Cousin Bolling's charge. The news this evening is that Montgomery has gone, and the new capital of the Confederacy will be either Macon, or Athens, Georgia. The war is closing in upon us from all sides. I am afraid there are rougher times ahead than we have ever known yet. I wish I was safe at home. Since Brother Troup has been ordered from Macon our chance of getting a government wagon is gone, and the railroad won't be finished through to Atlanta for a week or ten days yet. If ever I do get back home again, I will stay there till the war is over. April 8, Saturday Cousin Bolling has returned from his visit to Americus. Mary, L

After agreeing, by resolution, to share in the crime of plundering the National Government by accepting a portion of the money which the Louisiana politicians had stolen from the Mint and Custom House at New Orleans, See page 185. the Convention adjourned. The proceedings of this Convention, and of the Provisional Government of the Confederate States, have never been printed. The original manuscripts were discovered by some of General Wilson's command at Athens, in Georgia, after the downfall of the rebellion. They were in three boxes, in one of the recitation-rooms of the University of Georgia. A correspondent of the New York Herald, writing from Athens, on the 19th of June, 1865, gives the following interesting history of these papers, which consist of journals, correspondence, et coetera:-- As the Provisional Congress was about to expire, a proposition was made that the journals should be published. This was objected to, on the ground of furnish

by detachments of its own, its rear communications. At the signal to be given by you, Schofield, leaving a select garrison at Knoxville and Loudon, with twelve thousand men will drop down to the Hiawassee, and march against Johnston's right by the old Federal road. Stoneman, now in Kentucky, organizing the cavalry forces of the Army of the Ohio, will operate with Schofield on his left front — it may be, pushing a select body of about two thousand cavalry by Ducktown or Elijah toward Athens, Georgia. Thomas will aim to have forty-five thousand men of all arms, and move straight against Johnston, wherever he may be, fighting him cautiously, persistently, and to the best advantage. He will have two divisions of cavalry, to take advantage of any offering. McPherson will have nine divisions of the Army of the Tennessee, if A. J. Smith gets here, in which case he will have full thirty thousand of the best men in America. He will cross the Tennessee at Decatur and Whitesburg, mar

The resulting consciousness of national unity, deeper and broader than had existed before, was hastened by the gathering of economic forces for an unparalleled material development.

After graduating at the University of Georgia, in his native town, he studied in the University of Virginia. His qualities of leadership appeared at an early age while he was editing the Courier of Rome, Georgia. The proprietor would not allow him to print an article denouncing a political ring, whereupon young Grady bought two other papers of the town, combined them, and carried on his campaign. After some experience on the New York Herald he served as reporter on the Atl

In the action at Carrick's Ford he was killed, June 13, 1861. Brigadier-General Henry Rootes Jackson was born in Athens, Georgia, June 24, 1820, and became a lawyer.

s, and are assiduous in collecting names. April 4th Mrs. Emma R. Peterkin, Mrs. Meeteer, and other ladies from Philadelphia, visited the hospital and our ward to-day by special permission. They brought us some vegetables, fruit, etc. Their gentle presence and kindly words of sympathy infused new life into us, and was a most delightful and charming incident in our cheerless prison experience. One of the ladies came to my bed, spoke of her friendship for Mrs. Professor LeConte, of Athens, Georgia, and gave me some nice fruit. She also gave me hastily a recent number of Ben Wood's excellent Democratic paper, the New York News. This is a real treat, as Ben Wood is a Rebel sympathizer, and tells the plain truth about the Yankee defeats. His paper is forbidden in prison, lest the prisoners should gather some crumbs of comfort and items of truth from its bold utterances. After reading it, it was passed from couch to couch, and read with great eagerness. These sweet, gentle heart

Grady, Henry Woodfen 1851-1892 Journalist; born in Athens, Ga., in 1851; was educated in the universities of Georgia and Virginia, and entered journalism soon after the close of the Civil War. From the beginning he made a specialty of seeking the requirements of the South for its rehabilitation in prosperity. His early publications, relating to the resources and possibilities of the State of Georgia, were published in the Atlanta Constitution. The clearness and practical vein of these lelivered by invitation an address before the Merchants' Association in Boston on The future of the negro, and this speech still farther increased his fame. He was ill at the time of its delivery, became worse before leaving Boston, and died in Athens, Ga., on the 23d of that month. The citizens of Atlanta, grateful for what he had done for the city, State, and the South, testified their appreciation of his worth by erecting in that city the Grady Memorial Hospital, which was formally opened Ju
