On the whole, its work was well balanced, marvelously so, and the results are before the readers of the Photographic History.

ng, since Napoleon's Waterloo campaign, the American has shown himself preeminent. Colonel Dodge would have been justified in going much further. Waterloo itself, the most famous of the world's battles, does not show such fighting as Americans did at Sharpsburg (Antietam), Gettysburg, or Chickamauga. In Stonewall Jackson and the American Civil War, by Lieutenant-Colonel G. F. R. Henderson, a British military expert, is a complete list of killed and wounded in great battles from 1704 to 1882, inclusive. Since Eylau, 1807, there has been no great battle in which the losses of the victor—the punishment he withstood to gain his victory—equal the twenty-seven per cent. of the Confederates in their victory at Chickamauga. The Henderson tables give the losses of both sides in each Men of the fifth Georgia: more than half this regiment was killed and wounded at the battle of Chickamauga.

d in our last that there would be delay. We will simply say, by way of apology, that any irregularity of issue is far more distasteful to us than it can possibly be to our readers, that it has never occurred when we could prevent it, and that we think we see our way clear to more regular issues in the future than for the past year. But we beg to remind our subscribers that we have fully redeemed our promise that they should have their full quota of numbers and of pages. Renewals for 1882 are now due, and we beg our friends to send on the $3 at once. Please do not conclude that you will wait 'till the close of the year, and then buy the whole set; for even if you should be able to do that, which is by no means certain, we are, in the meantime, compelled to raise the cash to pay for the printing, and you ought to help us to the extent of at least your subscription. Send on, then, your renewal, and see if you cannot secure us at least one new subscriber. The annual meeti

[for Southern Historical Society Papers.] The bugle call. By Mrs. Sally Neil Roach. Commemorative of the Reunion of the Orphan brigade at Blue Lick Springs, Kentucky, July----, 1882. I. Through the woodland loud 'tis heard, Float the echoes soft and low, Rising now like song of bird, Rippling like the streamlet's flow. Heroes hear the well known call-- Bright eyes flash with martial flame, Forms erect, in line they fall, Gathering whence the summons came. II. No battle-flag is waved in air, Is spoken nought of stern command-- No sword to lead them flashes bare, No weapon gleams from steady hand. Kentucky's sons — brave men who bore Unsullied name through scathing fire, Till, bullet-riddled, stained with gore, Their deeds through years will songs inspire. III. They gather now — the war task done-- To hallow memories of those years, To tell of battles fought and won, To tell of hardships, aye, and tears. They gather now — behind them floats The bivouac life like shado<

e: I am posted here (near the head of the ravine) with three companies, for God's sake let Colonel Hunton, who is at the Lewis house with the balance of the regiment know your orders. The hill on which the Lewis house stood is of very considerable size and the northern slope of it drains into the ravine. The whole of this slope, up to the new grounds, near and north of the Lewis house, was then covered with an oaken growth of original forest; but it is now, I find upon a recent examination (1882), under a fine crop of corn, the house having been burnt by the enemy in the spring of 1862, when he first took possession of it. Ordering Lieutenant-Colonel Murray to take charge of my command, and to move on without delay, saying I would soon rejoin him, I put spurs to my horse, dashed through the woods and nearing Colonel Hunton's command, hallooed to him that General Beauregard's order was, that every man not in the face of the enemy should move into action. To which he promptly replied:

we have, I think, good grounds for believing from the facts now to be adduced. Rolfe's relation, written in Virginia in 1616, and now in the British Museum in the original manuscript, and sent by Rolfe to the Company in London in 1616, has, among others, the following statement: The places which are now possessed and inhabited are sixe, 1st. Henrico and the lymitts, 2d. Bermuda Nether Hundreds, 3d. West and Shirley Hundreds, 4th. James Towne, 5th. Kequoughtan [now, 1882, Hampton], 6th. Dale's Gift; upon the sea neere unto Cape Charles; and Rolfe states that 351 persons composed at that time the entire population of the Colony. The first legislative, representative body that was ever convened in Virginia, was organized on 30th July, 1619, at Jamestown. All the settlements in the Colony, then eleven in number, were represented in that body, each settlement by two burgesses. I have the names of the eleven settlements now before me, but to economize sp

r influence upon my actions, has been placed on file at the War Department. These copies of despatches, with annotations, are intended mainly for the military student who may care to make a close and critical study of such military operations. The original records of such correspondence are often worse than useless, for the reason that the exact time of sending and receipt of a despatch is so often omitted. All sent or received the same day are frequently printed in the records indiscriminately, so that the last is as likely to come first as otherwise; and, sometimes, historians have used despatches as if they had been received at the time they were sent, though in fact many hours or some days had elapsed. My annotations were made in 1882-3, at Black Point, San Francisco, California, with the assistance of my ever faithful and efficient aide, Colonel William M. Wherry, now lieutenant-colonel of the 2d United States Infantry, and were attached to the copies of the records in 1886.)

than that of total retirement, which deprives the President of any right to call upon them for any service whatever, even in an emergency. This was one of the subjects of correspondence between General Sherman and me while I was in Europe in 1881-2. But it was finally agreed by all concerned that it would be best to favor the uniform application of the rule of retirement for age, so that all might be assured, as far as possible, of a time, to which they might look forward with certainty, whe time, you can resume your present or some command due your rank. Although this long suspension from command was very annoying, I had the satisfaction of knowing that none of my brother officers had been disturbed on my account. In the fall of 1882, I was again assigned to the command of the Division of the Pacific, awaiting the time of General Sherman's retirement under the law and the succession of General Sheridan to the command of the army. Nothing of special interest occurred in that i

report of the board could have been much colder, it might have been better at first for Porter, though less just. But I do not think he or any of his companions and friends will ever feel like finding fault because the board could not entirely suppress the feelings produced by their discovery of the magnitude of the wrong that had been done to a gallant fellow-soldier. The first time I met General Grant after the decision of the board was published was very soon after he had published in 1882 the result of his own investigation of the case. He at once introduced the subject, and talked about it for a long time in the most earnest manner that I ever heard him speak on any subject. He would not permit me to utter a single sentence until he had gone all over the case and showed me that he understood all its essential features as thoroughly as I did, and that his judgment was precisely the same as that which the board had reached. He intimated very decidedly that no impartial and
