awn from the counties of Albemarle, Greene, Orange, Rappahannock and Fauquier, they formed the gallant 7th Regiment, with James L. Kemper for its colonel; Lewis Williams, lieutenant-colonel; Tazewell Patton, major, and C. C. Flowerree, adjutant. The 1st Virginia Regiment and the 7th fought together at Bull Run, and were as twin brothers throughout the whole war, fighting side by side in every battle that either was engaged in. Company A was reorganized at Yorktown, Va., in the spring of 1882, with the following officers: William O. Fry, captain; Thomas V. Fry, first lieutenant; William F. Harrison, second lieutenant, and George N. Thrift, third lieutenant; James Watson, first sergeant; W. B. Carpenter, second sergeant; R. W. Sparks, third sergeant; Catlett Conway, fourth sergeant; George R. Teasley, first corporal; Osmond Bradford, second corporal; R. A. Thomas, third corporal, and John W.

lped to sustain him in his dire distress. General Colston brought back to America a considerable sum of money in gold, the savings of his Egyptian pay—enough probably to satisfy his modest wants for life. Some of his friends in Wall street undertook to make a great fortune for him, and he lost it all. Thrown again upon his own personal resources, he delivered lectures and wrote for magazines on subjects with which his great learning and large experience had made him familiar. In the year 1882 he was offered the professorship of natural philosophy, mechanics and astronomy in the Virginia Military Institute. This was a great temptation. It offered him a berth for life, with most congenial surroundings. But he declined the offer, because, he said, he did not consider himself competent to teach astronomy, as it ought to be taught there. He had not made a specialty of astronomy. Modesty, self-sacrifice, conscientiousness, absolute truthfulness, virtues which adorned his whole l

and perhaps the only original member now living. An incident connected with the early history of the church illustrates the growth of the city in a westerly direction. When the officers of the First Presbyterian Church proposed to purchase the lot on which the Second Church stands, it was earnestly opposed by an influential member, on the ground that it was too far up-town, and that a congregation could not be gathered at such a remote region. Sent out its first colony. In the year 1882 the Second Presbyterian Church sent forth its first colony, now known as the Church of the Covenant. It occupied the building erected on west Grace street, near Richmond College, the chief contributor being the late Dr. James McDowell, son of Governor McDowell, of Rockbridge county. Its first pastor was Rev. Peyton Harrison Hoge, under whose ministry it was steadily advancing until his removal to Wilmington, N. C. He was succeeded Rev. A. R. Holderby, who was succeeded by Rev.

. In the summer months he would sit for hours on the river bank, fishing, and as he was as skillful as he was enthusiastic, he rarely failed to bring home substantial evidence that he had not been unsuccessful. He was even fonder, perhaps, of hunting than he was of fishing, as he was an excellent shot, and during the hunting season he gave much time to this sport, generally shooting from horseback, which he did with such accuracy as to rarely fail in bringing down his bird. In the fall of 1882 he went to Philadelphia where he spent several weeks under the treatment of the eminent physician, Dr. S. Weir Mitchell, and upon his return home was apparently much improved. He caught cold, however, shortly after getting home, while attending church, and in his weak condition pneumonia set in, and other complications, which caused his death. On the 1st of January, 1883, in the 47th year of his age, surrounded by the faithful circle of his loved ones, the end came in perfect peace. He h

street, used by clerks of the adjutant-general's office, and remained there until 1867. In that year the Secretary of War had them taken to the War Department, where a few were placed on the walls, and the remainder laid on shelves or stuffed in pigeon-holes. A portion of the flags were removed to the Winter building and placed on exhibition in the Ordnance Museum in 1784, and others were sent to the same place in 1875. The larger part of the flags still remained in the War Department. In 1882 all the flags, by direction of the Secretary of War, were boxed up and stored in the sub-basement of the department, where they were kept until 1889, when it was found that they were decaying, and the adjutant-general of the army had them removed from the boxes and placed in an upper story, where they could be more readily reached. It has been the practice of the department to return recaptured Union flags to the organizations which lost them, but it has not been the practice to return any C

h was destined, by deeds, not words, to write a living chapter in the world old epic of arms and the man. Later they met at Virginia's University, whither Payne went to study the virtue and the truth of law and Carter the ministries of healing. After the lapse of a decade, in the shock of arms which shook a continent, again they came together to win a parallel renown; Payne at the head of horse: Carter in the blaze of his fierce and stubborn guns. Touching are the words the former wrote in 1882 to Mr. Isaac Winston: I rejoice that I lived in the heroic age of the South, and that my early life was spent in games of chivalry, romance, and, McGregor-like, love for my own heath. I can say from my heart I loved Virginia- Beyond her map, my heart travels not, But fills that limit to the utmost verge.

weeks to come. It is astonishing that a man of the General's standing should place himself in such an indefensible position; for the proof is indisputable that there was no capture of our colors while the brigade held its position around the McPherson buildings, and since there was no capture there could not possibly have been a recapture. For years I kept a watch to see whether anyone would claim the mythical honor of having been the central figure in this assumed recapture. When, in 1882, on the publication of Kieffer's fascinating serial, The Recollections of a Drummer Boy, Sergeant John C. Kensill, Company F, 150th, posed as the longsought — for hero, I at once opened a correspondence with him; but soon found that this comrade's mind was somewhat off its balance, and I subsequently learned that it was caused by a wound in his head. Incidentally our correspondence did me a valuable service, for which I shall always hold him in kindly remembrance, for it led to my acquain

, he was well versed in gastronomics, and his menus were wholly original and excellent. He had friendly relations with the diplomats who were prominent in the society of the capital. Lord Rosebery and the Duke of Devonshire were among his friends, as were also the late Senator Bayard and President Garfield. Quite late in life, he enjoyed a turn of good fortune, and was most generous in his use of the wealth suddenly acquired, and alas! as suddenly lost. His last visit to Europe was in 1882-83, when, after passing some months with Lord and Lady Rosebery, he proceeded to Rome to finish the winter with our sister, Mrs. Terry. In his travels he had contracted a fatal disease, and his checkered and brilliant career came to an end at Pegli, near Genoa, in the spring of 1884. Of his oft contemplated literary work there remains a volume of poems entitled Literary Recreations. The poet Longfellow, my brother's lifelong friend and intimate, esteemed these productions of his as true po
