ct a monument to the great chieftain in this city, and to collect funds for the purpose throughout the South. The organization was constituted as follows: President, Mrs. William H. Macfarland; vice-presidents, Mrs. George W. Randolph, Mrs. James Lyons, Mrs. William Brown; treasurer, Miss Elizabeth Byrd Nicholas; secretary, Miss Sarah Nicholas Randolph. Despite the prevailing poverty of the people of the South, and the entire prostration of their resources resultant from the war, the su observed throughout the South, every congregation, Christian and Hebrew, make their contributions for this object. It is hoped the requisite amount will be secured at once. (Signed) Mrs. William H. Macfarland, Mrs. George W. Randolph, Mrs. James Lyons, Mrs. William Brown and Miss E. B. Nicholas.

You remember that ten years or so ago Mrs. Johnston was very ill for many weeks at the White Sulphur. The General nursed her with the tender care of a mother. He never left her except to get a hurried meal, from which he hastened back to her sick chamber. Mrs. James Lyons was an active and constant friend, and so soon as Mrs. Johnston began to improve in health she insisted that the General should relax his anxious watch, and induced him to take the air for an hour or two every day. But he would never go far from their cottage door, but sat upon a fallen tree on the lawn in sight and sound of it, and conversed with a friend. On these occasions he talked all the time, and all he ever said was full of strong conviction and good sense. Reticence and e

cause this conduct was the true cause of substantially all the sufferings and deaths which came to the prisoners on both sides during the war. That we have shown that the Federal Government, with Edwin M. Stanton, H. W. Halleck and U S. Grant as its representatives, is solely responsible, we think cannot be denied, and that history will so attest. Mr. Charles A. Dana, the Federal Assistant Secretary of War, in an editorial in the New York Sun, commenting on the letter of Mr. Davis to Mr. James Lyons, written in reference to the strictures of Mr. Blaine, referred to in the early part of this report, said as follows: This letter shows clearly, we think, that the Confederate authorities, and especially Mr. Davis, ought not to be held responsible for the terrible privations, sufferings and injuries which our men had to endure while they were kept in Confederate military prisons. The fact is unquestionable, that while the Confederates desired to exchange prisoners, to send our m

Supreme Court of Appeals--Totty's case. --The application for a writ of habeas corpus on behalf of William D. Totty, convicted in Judge Lyons' Court of murder in the first degree, and sentenced to be hanged on Saturday next, has been considered by the Court of Appeals, and its judgment was pronounced yesterday. The application necessarily involved the question as to the constitutionality of the act creating that Court, and the writ prayed for was denied, all the Judges of the Court of Appeals being of opinion that it was within the competency of the General Assembly to create the new Hustings Court, and that the act for that purpose was free from any constitutional objection.
Political. --A discussion will take place tonight at Metropolitan Hall, between James Lyons and John H. Gilmer, Esqs. The Bell and Everett party will be addressed in their Club House by Hon. John S. Pendleton, of Culpeper county.
