J. William Jones, Christ in the camp, or religion in Lee's army, Appendix no. 2: the work of grace in other armies of the Confederacy. (search)
spital Sergeant Anderson, Thirty-ninth North Carolina, told me of his happy profession of religion yesterday. This has been appointed by President Davis as a day of fasting and prayer. I preached to the Twenty-ninth and Thirty-ninth North Carolina Regiments, and raised fifty-nine subscribers for The Message. Shelbyville, Sunday, March 29. Preached for the presiding elder, Rev. A. S. Riggs, at 11 A. M. Among those who took the Sacrament of the Lord's Supper I observed Colonels Armstrong, Bell, and Vance, Rev. Colonel Reed, C. P. Church and Supreme Judge Wright. In the afternoon I preached at the brigade hospital for the sick and wounded. March 30. Consultation with Chaplains McDonald and Malloy on our plan of army work. Mr. Ford, of the Third Georgia Battalion, brother of Rev. Mr. Ford, of Georgia, died to-day. A good man ready to go; a member of our church. His brother was with him. March 31. Ten chaplains at our meeting to-day. Sunday, April 5. Preached in the for
scard the principal round in the ladder by which he had climbed to eminence. He managed to keep in touch with the Anti-Slavery movement through all its steady advancement, but, as elsewhere stated, it was as a follower rather than as a leader. While a resident of the slave State of Missouri, I twice voted for Mr. Lincoln, which was some evidence of my personal feeling toward him. Both times I did it somewhat reluctantly. On the first occasion there were four candidates. Breckenridge and Bell were Southern men — both by residence and principle-and had no claim on Anti-Slavery support. But with Douglas the case was different. He had quarreled with the pro-slavery leaders, although of his own party. He had defied President Buchanan in denouncing border-ruffianism in Kansas. He had refused to give up his popular sovereignty dogma, although it clearly meant ultimate free soil. The slave-masters hated him far more than they did Lincoln. I heard them freely discuss the matter. T

eceived a large percentage of the votes that were cast, but failed to obtain a sufficient number to secure his nomination. The withdrawing delegates organized a rival convention, but, without transacting any business of a decisive character, also adjourned, to meet in Baltimore at a date nearly coincident with that of the regular body. On the nineteenth day of May, the Constitutional Union (being the old American) party held their convention in the city of Baltimore, and nominated John Bell, of Tennessee, for President, and Edward Everett, of Massachusetts, for the Vice-Presidency, The Republican Convention was held on the sixteenth day of May, in the city of Chicago, and upon the third ballot nominated Abraham Lincoln, of Illinois, for the office of President, and Hannibal Hamlin, of Maine, for the second office. This convention also adopted a platform very pronounced upon the subject of Slavery, and which was calculated to give but little encouragement to the extension o

fer the issue to go out as the Democrats had expected it to be made up would be disastrous to us in their part of the Union, What was done finally was in full consideration and agreement, and entirely satisfactory to all sides. When the subject comes up again we must meet it as we best can. We are anxious to draw out some Southern opposition, and this may be expected, if we do not too readily and selfishly appropriate the resistance to it to our own party uses. I expect Mr. Crittenden and Mr. Bell to oppose it, Mr. Hammond to vote against it, and some others, whom I will not name, to be relentless in their support. I see that the Post, usually so very right, calls for a more decided activity on our side. If you can do anything in the emergency to reconcile our friends to the system of defence we are making, you will do a great good. I think ridicule, not pure argument, the most safe and effective way of disposing of it. To talk of the danger of war from it is just what the move

and on her, more than on any other woman, the conduct of the cause rested. She was baptized into it in 1834, became the soul of the Boston Female A. S. Society, and from 1840 her administrative energy maintained the organ of the American A. S. Society, and so virtually the Society itself. She was, in her Right and Wrong series (1836-40), the chronicler of a critical epoch, and in countless other ways her pen was effectively employed, both in prose and in verse, in the Liberator, the Liberty Bell, the Standard, etc. She was born in 1806; her husband, Henry Grafton Chapman, in 1804. He was the son of Henry and Sarah Greene Chapman of Boston. The elder Chapman was the only one of those then reckoned the Boston merchants par excellence to make the anti-slavery cause his own: his wife paid, through the Boston Female A. S. Society, the counsel fee in the Med case (see hereafter). Both Mrs. M. W. Chapman and her husband joined the ranks of the abolitionists against the earnest remonstranc

or death, be our allotted portion, it will be a Happy New Year. Death was the allotted portion of the lamented writer of these lines, in the short space of three months, and, as she made her will on February 1, must have been foreseen when writing to Mr. Garrison. She made liberal bequests to the American A. S. Society and to the Boston Female A. S. Society (Lib. 7: 59). A poetic tribute to her memory, from the pen of Mr. Garrison, dated Boston, Oct. 27, 1837, was published in the Liberty Bell for 1839. The typographical appearance of the paper was improved in the ninth number of the new volume by an Mar. 2, 1838. enlargement of the pictorial heading. The old conception (rather than the old design) of a slave auction at the national capital was retained, but beside it was placed a scene of busy labor and rejoicing as the sun rose upon an emancipated race. This scene was shortly to be realized in the British West Indies. Mr. Garrison's family expenses and responsibilities

r G., which paid off the arrears of his salary for last year, and quite set him on his legs again. I think next year it will nearly if not quite support itself. We see it not only in the elasticity with which he met the fresh blows showered upon him, but in the renewed activity of his muse—this last being also a sign of good physical condition. No fewer than five sonnets proceeded from him in December—partly contributed to the Liberator, Lib. 10.199, 207; 11.3, 4. and partly to the Liberty Bell, the annual publication of the Anti-Slavery Fair, under the auspices of Mrs. Chapman. We can fancy him composing them on his lonely midnight walks across the long bridge to Cambridge, over the Charles River. These two, the best of the five, if not at his high-water mark, have, perhaps, a claim to be quoted: Sonnet to Liberty. They tell me, Liberty! that, in thy name, Lib. 11.4; Writings of W. L.
