ilege to stand among the graves of these unknown heroes of the rank and file, or to linger around the resting-place of Jeb Stuart, whose stainless sword is sheathed forever; A. P. Hill, who gladly laid down his noble life at the call of duty; the gallant Pickett, who appropriately bivouacks among his boys on Gettysburg hill; Willie Pegram, the boy artillerist, whose record lives in the hearts of the whole army, and whose last words were: I have done my duty, and now I turn to my Savior ; John H. Pegram, whose brave young life was sacrificed at the post of duty he always coveted; General Ed. Johnson, who so loved to go in with the boys, musket in hand; General Henry A. Wise, the fearless tribune of the people, who claimed no exemption from hardship and danger on account of his age or long service; Colonel D. B. Harris, Beauregard's great engineer officer, whose merit was only equalled by his modesty ; Commodore Maury, whose brave devotion to the right was not eclipsed by his world-wide

The following beautiful letter from ex-President Davis was read at the recent laying of the corner-stone of the Confederate monument at Macon, Ga., and so appropriately gives voice to the sentiments of the people of the South generally that we print it in full: Mississippi City, Miss., April 11, 1878. Gentlemen: I sincerely regret my inability to be present at the laying of the corner-stone of a monument to be erected in Macon, Ga., in honor of our dead Confederate soldiers. The event possesses every attraction to me; it is inspired by the Ladies' Memorial Association; the monument is to be located in the keystone State of the Confederate arch, and to commemorate the sacrifices of those who died in the defence of our inherited and inalienable rights. What though we were over

y the 1st of July, we would at once increase the number of pages in each issue and make other contemplated improvements. Shall we not have a number of earnest workers in this direction? Photographs or Engravings of leading Confederates are a very desirable part of our material. We wish to hand down to posterity the features of the men who made our glorious history, and we should be under special obligations to friends who can make additions to our collection. Mr. M. Miley, of Lexington, Va., has sent us a superb collection of his photographs, embracing the following: President Jefferson Davis, General R. E. Lee, Lieutenant-General Stonewall Jackson, Lieutenant-General J. A. Early, Major-General John C. Breckinridge, Major-General Fitz. Lee, Major-General G. W. C. Lee, Major-General W. H. F. Lee, and Brigadier-General W. N. Pendleton. For accuracy of likeness and beauty of execution these photographs are unsurpassed, and we would be very glad to see them in the homes of o

to loved ones far away to assure them that Richmond still cherishes in her heart of hearts the boys who wore the gray and freely gave their lives in her defence. It was a sacred privilege to stand among the graves of these unknown heroes of the rank and file, or to linger around the resting-place of Jeb Stuart, whose stainless sword is sheathed forever; A. P. Hill, who gladly laid down his noble life at the call of duty; the gallant Pickett, who appropriately bivouacks among his boys on Gettysburg hill; Willie Pegram, the boy artillerist, whose record lives in the hearts of the whole army, and whose last words were: I have done my duty, and now I turn to my Savior ; John H.

se we remember that he was a gallant soldier in the famous old Rockbridge Artillery. Memorial day has not been forgotten this year at the South, and we trust that the time is far distant when our women shall cease to deck with flowers the graves of the patriot heroes who died for us, or to teach our children to cherish their memories and emulate their virtues. Our printers stopped work to-day (May the 22d) in order to join the throng that pressed through the avenues of beautiful Hollywood to deck the graves and honor the memories of the braves who sleep beneath its sod. As we gazed on the silent bivouack of the dead, and noted that all (from every State of the Confederacy and of every rank) were remembered, and that at least some simple flower decorated the grave of each, we felt that it might be gratifying to loved ones far away to assure them that Richmond still cherishes in her heart of hearts the boys who wore the gray and freely gave their lives in her defence.

Book notice. Fitzhugh St. Clair, the S. C. Rebel boy, by Mrs. Sallie F. Chapin, of Charleston. Philadelphia: Claxton, Remsen & Hafflefinger. We are indebted to the accomplished authoress for a copy of this book, which we have read with deep interest. It is a well-laid plot and an admirably-told story of a noble South Carolina family whose head was killed in battle, and whose members had to struggle with the hardships of refugeeing, the brutality of Sherman's army when it captured Columbia, and the poverty and bitter trials into which so many of the best people of South Carolina were plunged by the pack of thieves who plundered the State at the close of the war. It shows how high character and Christian principle can resist temptation and win at last the reward of virtue, and holds up a model for the young men of the South which we could wish them all to read and imitate.
