He is now commanding a division of cavalry, and I respectfully urge that he be promoted. Subsequently, Green was transferred with his division to meet the invasion of the Rio Grande country by the expedition under Banks, and was promoted to major-general early in 1864. Called again to Louisiana, when Texas was threatened by the Red river expedition, he commanded the cavalry corps at the battles of Mansfield and Pleasant Hill with great distinction, and, pursuing the enemy, lost his life at Blair's landing, April 12, 1863. Major-General Banks, commanding the Federal army, in his report to General Sherman, said: General Green was killed by the fire of the gunboats on the 12th; he was the ablest officer in their service. Brigadier-General Elkanah Greer Brigadier-General Elkanah Greer entered the Confederate army in the Third Texas cavalry, of which he was commissioned colonel on the 1st of July, 1861. His first battle was that of Wilson's Creek, Missouri, August 10, 1861. Here

mas' Alabama reserves in the trenches. During the valorous defense of that post he commanded the left wing of the little army, Colonel Jones commanding his brigade, and was warmly commended for his services by General Gibson. Retreating to Meridian, after the fall of Mobile, he was paroled, with the army of Gen. Richard Taylor, in May, 1865. Returning then to Montgomery, he again took up the practice of law. In 1868 he was a delegate to the Democratic convention that nominated Seymour and Blair, was a district presidential elector in 1876, and elector for the State at large in 1888. In February, 1893, he was appointed by Governor Jones a member of the State railroad commission to succeed Gen. Levi W. Lawler, deceased. His appointment gave universal satisfaction. His useful career as a citizen was cut short by death on July 19, 1893. Brigadier-General George Doherty Johnston was born in 1832, at Hillsboro, N. C.

d; a second, who took his place, shared his fate; so with the third and fourth; the fifth bore off the colors. We read of little more effective fighting than that of Cheatham's and Cleburne's Divisions in repelling an assault made upon them by Blair's Corps of the Federal army, on the morning of the 27th of June, at Kenesaw. The conduct of the Federal troops on that occasion was as resolute as in the instance above. When they fell back, more than 300 dead bodies were counted within a few ythe 22d of July, in carrying out a plan of general attack, my corps, consisting then of Cleburne's and three other divisions, assaulted and carried the entrenched left of the Federal army. The troops opposed to us were McPherson's army, of which Blair's Corps formed a part. On the 27th of June, Cleburne had repelled an assault of these troops with a loss slightly disproportionate. It bears strong testimony to the soldierly quality of the Confederate troops that on the 22d of July, they, in p

ate soldiers, and any other course is unmanly and unsoldiery. Yankee soldiers are not expected to appreciate such gentility and self respect. United States Postmaster Blair's house and farm were less than 100 yards from my regiment. General Breckinridge is an old acquaintance of General Blair, and had placed a guard around it, General Blair, and had placed a guard around it, and forbade any one to enter the house, or at all disturb the premises. This course was in great contrast to that pursued by General Hunter when he caused the destruction of the residence of his cousin, Hon. Andrew Hunter, near Halltown, Va. Breckinridge is the very soul of honor, as are all our leading Generals. The meanest privbout 12 o'clock at night we commenced falling back towards Rockville, and, I regret to say, our march was brilliantly illuminated by the burning of the magnificent Blair mansion. The destruction of the house was much deplored by our general officers and the more thoughtful subordinates, as it has been our policy not to interfere w

re than most of my school work. While one person devoted time and attention to me, I repaid the effort to my best ability. In the classes of my schooldays, the contact between teacher and pupil was less immediate. I shall always remember with pleasure Mrs. B.'s Conversations on Chemistry, which I studied with great pleasure, albeit that I never saw one of the experiments therein described. I remember that Paley's Evidences of Christianity interested me more than his Philosophy, and that Blair's Rhetoric, with its many quotations from the poets, was a delight to me. As I have before said, I was not inapt at algebra and geometry, but was too indolent to acquire any mastery in mathematics. The French language was somehow burnt into my mind by a cruel French teacher, who made my lessons as unpleasant as possible. My fear of him was so great that I really exerted myself seriously to meet his requirements. I have profited in later life by his severity, having been able not only to s
