Notes and Queries. Did General Lee offer his sword only to Virginia, in the great war between the States? This is a somewhat popular idea which is intimated in the statements of Governor Anderson, in Colonel Bullitt's paper, in our last number. But the truth is, that while General Lee held his first allegiance as due to his native State, awaited calmly her action before deciding on his own course, and expressed his purpose, on leaving the United States army, of never drawing his sword again save in her defence, yet the whole Confederacy had the warm affections and loyal service of this devoted patriot. The late Vice-President Stephens said that when he was sent to Richmond to induce Virginia, after her secession, to cast in her fortunes with the Southern Confederacy, he found an able, zealous and very influential coadjutor in General Lee. In his address at the great Lee Memorial meeting in Richmond, in November, 1870, President Davis said, among other eloquent utterance

Correction of errors in statement of Governor Anderson, and letter of General Echols. Letter from President Davis. [We need not say that our pages are always open to the distinguished chieftain, and pure patriot, who guided the fortunes of the Confederacy. But he is especially welcome when his facile pen narratives matters of which he, above all others, is best qualified to speak.] Beauvoir, Miss., 22d November, 1883. Rev. J. William Jones, D D., Secretary Southern Historical Socie
Remember, too, that the Confederate high places were all notoriously filled or engaged (Sidney Johnston for first command, &c.) Remember, also, Lee's Virginia soil conditions of acceptance.
His is a wondrous record of consistent purity!—Governor Anderson.
This is a wondrous bundle of errors.

"Leave military matters to military Men." We have already expressed the opinion that Major Anderson, in view of the understanding between the two Governments, committed a palpable violation of good faith in destroying the public property at Fort Moultrie, and taking possession of Fort Sumter. He has not only violated good faith, but, on his own personal responsibility, he has begun civil war. --At the same time, the movement will be a valuable one to the South, at the beginning of an appa

If the forts in Charleston harbor had been watched by a practiced military eye, Major Anderson could no more have moved his force and munitions, or even a single man, from Moultrie to Sumner, than he could have transported them all to the moon.

Proceedings in the courts. Mayor's Court, Thursday, November 6. --Reason Anderson, a free negro from Jefferson county, having been apprehended by the watch for being in the city without a register, was turned over to the Mayor for investigation, and by him sent to jail. Silas Maxfield and Betsy Martin, two free negroes, were brought up for being drunk and fighting at the corner of Main and 22d streets, to the disturbance of the sick soldiers in General Hospital No. 8. Both whipped and sent to jail for want of security. Charles Maddux was required to answer a charge preferred by Julius Myers that he had assaulted and beaten him. The misunderstanding occurred about the price of a lot of combs bought by Myers from Maddux. Myers swearing that he was fearful of another assault, the Mayor required Maddux to give security to keep the peace in the sum of $150. Appeal taken, to be decided before the Hustings Court on Monday next. Samuel W. Wyvill was brought up for examina
