loh, and Generals Robert E. Lee and Braxton Bragg died since the cessation of hostilities. There were two generals with temporary rank—E. Kirby Smith and John B. Hood. The former lives, and the latter, in dying, commended his orphans to the care of the soldiers of the Confederacy. Twenty-one officers were complimented with the grade of lieutenant-general. The only survivors are Generals James Longstreet, E. Kirby Smith, D. H. Hill, Stephen D. Lee, Wade Hampton, Jubal A. Early, Alexander P. Stewart, Joseph Wheeler, Simon B. Buckner, and John B. Gordon. O the one hundred who were commissioned as major-generals in Confederate service, if my information be correct, only forty-five are now numbered among the living. Of four hundred and eighty who rose to the grade of brigadier-general, an inquiry, by no means partial, inclines me to the belief that there are not two hundred in life. With the exception of Thomas H. Watts, of Alabama, Joseph E. Brown, of Georgia, Zebulon B. V

the most part out of the hand of their proper commanders, from corps to companies, as is not honestly deniable. We must now see, however, from the reports of his several division, brigade and regimental commanders, as to the condition of their respective commands, whether there were really any rational grounds for General Polk's belief that his troops were capable of the vigorous assault that was essential to make the Confederate operations at that late hour a triumphant success. General A. P. Stewart, a professionally educated soldier, who fell into command of Polk's first division by the disablement of General Clark, reports that after the capture of Prentiss, in which his immediate command had no part, under the orders of General Polk, he moved toward our left to the support of some Louisiana regiments (with the Second and Thirty-third and Fifth Tennessee regiments.) In passing through the woods, Stewart continued, the Fifth Tennessee became separated from us. The other t

ff. Information was immediately transmitted to the rear, but no advantage was taken of it. Governor I. G. Harris or Judge D. S. Terry can give you full and valuable information upon this point—particularly as to the parties upon whom blame for the failure should justly rest. Here we lay until about 4 o'clock P. M., when we were ordered to a position up the Chattanooga road to repel an attack from Granger's corps, advancing rapidly, as was reported, from that direction. We found there A. P. Stewart's corps. We took position immediately in his front. Generals Law and Benning (officers of great but most signally unappreciated merit, then and afterwards, by those high in command) rode to the front and, after a hurried reconnoissance, suggested the propriety of bringing up some twenty pieces of artillery and opening upon Granger's advancing forces from directly up the Chattanooga road. It was done with a grand success. If any of his infantry bore part in that evening's fight, it wa

ld South furnished more than her proportion of troops. Southern troops flocked North, and, in the battles in Canada, a large number of general officers were from the old South: Harrison, Scott, Wilkinson, Izzard, Winder, Hampton, Gaines, Towson, Brooke, Drayton, etc. Kentucky sent more men for the invasion of Canada than did any other State. All honor to the United States sailors of the North, who had no sympathy with the Hartford Convention, and nobly did their duty— Perry, Bainbridge, Stewart, Lawrence, Porter, Preble, &c. The Don't Give up the Ship of dying Lawrence is a precious legacy to the whole American people. But the unmaritime South claims, among the naval heroes of that period, Decatur, of Maryland; MacDonough, of Delaware; Jacob Jones, of same State; the two Shubricks, of South Carolina; Jesse D. Elliott, of Maryland; Blakely, of North Carolina, etc. A very large proportion of the naval heroes of the war of 1812 came from Maryland. In the Mexican war, the comma
