rests. He had no hope of success in establishing a free government unless Christian principle permeates all classes. There must be in high and low station a Christian conscience. We need a conservative element. This point was elaborated with power, and with that high order of eloquence so characteristic of this distinguished gentleman. Mr. Curry narrated some thrilling incidents in illustration of the good that may be done by circulating Testaments and tracts among the soldiers. Judge Chilton, representative of the Montgomery District (Alabama) in Congress, said it was too late for him to enter upon any lengthy remarks, but that with all his heart he endorsed the cause. He believed it one of the holiest and most glorious to which a good man can aspire. He had given to it the previous Sabbath, but was willing to give again, and to continue to give as long as he had a dollar and as any soldier's soul needed to be cared for.

At the appointed hour the cortege appeared in front of the church, and the metallic coffin, containing the remains of the noble soldier, whose now silent voice had so often startled the enemy with his stirring battle-cry, was carried down the centre-aisle, and placed before the altar. Wreaths and a cross of evergreens, interwoven with delicate lilies of the valley, laurel, and other flowers of purest white, decked the coffin. The pall-bearers were Gen. Bragg, Maj.-Gen. McCown, Gen. Chilton, Brig.-Gen. Lawton, Commodore Forrest, Capt. Lee, of the navy, and Gen. George W. Randolph, formerly Secretary of War. The scene was sad and impressive. President Davis sat near the front, with a look of grief upon his careworn face; his cabinet officers were gathered around, while on either side were the Senators and Representatives of the Confederate Congress. Scattered through the church were a number of generals and other officers of less rank, among the former Gen. Ransom, comma

t that all of our Confederate leaders, from our chivalric, heroic President, down to the subordinates, were accustomed to say to their men not Go on! but Come on! Thus it came to pass that the list of our dead Generals were fearfully large, and that of those who survive, the large majority of them carry badges of honor in wounds received during the war. In peace. And since the war numbers of them have crossed the river— Lee, Cooper, Bragg, D. H. Hill, Forrest, Cheatham, Pendleton, Chilton, Hood, Wise, William Smith—and scores of others went before, and but a few months ago our grand old Chief and only President followed after. Thank God! many of them yet survive, and scores of them come to-day to pay tribute to their loved and honored old Chief, while many others though absent in body are present in spirit. We have been at some pains to compile an accurate list of surviving Confederate generals with their present residence, and we give it below. There may be a few om

There were seventy-two batteries in the army and eighteen were consolidated, leaving fifty-four organizations. This order was promulgated to our company at Winchester, and aroused great indignation among the men, and almost insubordination was manifested; but I advised them to consider the matter soberly and not to disgrace themselves; that I would seek a personal interview with General Lee to see if he would revoke it. I immediately rode to his headquarters, and after dismounting, met Colonel Chilton, and asked him if General Lee was in? He said yes, and just at that time General Lee came out of his tent. I walked up to him with his order in my hand, saluted him which he returned, then introduced myself as Captain Thompson, of the Portsmouth Light Artillery Company. Presenting the order, I said: General, I have come to ask for a reconsideration of this order. He replied: Captain, that order was from the best information of the condition of the artillery of the Army of Northern

The Mayor complied, and they were soon afterwards brought into Court. They made statements as to some conversations with Riddell and Chilton in jail; but as they were incompetent witnesses, their testimony was rejected. After this, at the request of Chilton, the Mayor sent for Samuel Jefford, another Chilton, the Mayor sent for Samuel Jefford, another prisoner, convicted of larceny. Jefford, however, declined to make any statement, being, as he said, a convict, and whatever he might reveal would have no weight in the case.
