s bright Which shall new lustre boast, When victors' wreaths and monarch's gems Shall blend in common dust. Major Robert Stiles, of Richmond, in an address delivered in 1869 before the Male Orphan Asylum of Richmond, related an incident which I will not mar by condensing, but give in his own eloquent words: One of the batteries of our own battalion was composed chiefly of Irishmen from a Southern city—gallant fellows, but wild and reckless. The captaincy becoming vacant, a backwoods Georgia preacher named C. was sent to command them. The men, at first half amused, half insulted, soon learned to idolize as well as fear their preacher captain, who proved to be, all in all, such a man as one seldom sees, a combination of Praise-God Barebones and Sir Philip Sidney, with a dash of Hedley Vicars about him. He had all the stern grit of the Puritan, with much of the chivalry of the Cavalier, and the zeal of the Apostle. There was at this time but one other Christian in his battery,

bank unconstitutional. In relation to the famous expunging resolution, introduced by Mr. Benton into the Senate, to relieve President Jackson of a just censure, passed on him some years before, Mr. Tyler—receiving instructions from resolutions adopted by the Virginia Legislature, to vote for those resolutions—resigned his seat and returned home. Mr. Tyler may be considered a firm and decided Whig. In 1836, as a Whig candidate for the Vice-Presidency, he obtained the votes of Maryland, Georgia, South Carolina, and Tennessee. In 1838 he was a member of the Legislature from James City county, and fully cooperated with the Whig party. In relation to the Whig party, in its position to the second term of Jackson and the opposition to the election of Martin Van Buren, Calhoun truly remarked: It is also true that a common party designation (Whig) was applied to the opposition in the aggregate. But it is no less true that it was universally known that it consisted of two distinct p

federacy are satisfied that Barksdale's brigade and the Washington Artillery can't whip the whole Yankee army. The rapid movement of the enemy, advancing over Marye's Hill and on Hazel Run, made me despair of reaching the brigade. My only hope was to reach the main army, then at Chancellorsville, engaged in a furious battle. When, however, I reached Gest's Hill on the plank road, I discovered the enemy had been checked by the Thirteenth and Seventeenth regiments, Frazier's battery from Georgia, Carloton's battery from North Carolina, and the second company of Washington Artillery, then on Lee's Hill. I saw that it was possible for my regiment to cross Hazel Run above Marye's Hill and rejoin the brigade, which move was made and accomplished. General Barksdale, as soon as he saw that Marye's Hill was lost, the Eighteenth regiment shattered, the Washington Artillery captured and the Twenty-first regiment cut off, ordered the Thirteenth and Seventeenth regiments to fall back to Lee

Davis, when many great soldiers of the Confederacy were present, the Association was formed. This society was then organized as the Maryland Division of the Army of Northern Virginia. Other similar societies arose all over the South, and I believe they have performed a large and noble part in keeping up the spirit of our people. It was the spirit kept alive by these societies and the organization and membership of the societies themselves which rescued Louisiana and South Carolina and Georgia, and which has just restored Virginia to the control of her own people. I come now to answer more definitely the inquiry with which I started—Why do we continue these public exhibitions and demonstrations? I answer, in order to show that we have power and the will to protect ourselves and our comrades. The annual orations and banquets at which we meet are not meant solely to make a display or to gratify a sentiment. They have been intended to keep, and they have succeeded in keepi
