The other three brigades constituted the division known during the war as Walker's division of Texas infantry, the largest body of Texas troops that retained their organization to the end of the war. It was in service in Louisiana in 1863 and 1864, and at the battles of Mansfield, Pleasant Hill, and Jenkins' Ferry, Ark. It was commanded by Maj.-Gen. John G. Walker during its active service. The brigades were commanded by Henry E. McCulloch, General Hawes, Gen. Wm. R Scurry, Gen. H. Randal, Gen. R. Waterhouse and Gen. T. N. Waul, at different times. There were also many changes in the field officers of the regiments. In February, 1865, four cavalry regiments, Chisum's, Candle's, J. M. Wells', and De Morse's, were dismounted and distributed in the division, and a new brigade, the Fourth, formed with Flournoy, Candle's and Wells' regiments, and Brig.-Gen. W. H.

into the river. Major-General Leonidas Polk, in his report dated September, 1862, forwarded February 4, 1863, says, page 409: About 5 P. M. my line attacked the enemy's troops, the last that were left upon the field in an encampment on my right. The attack was made in front and flank. The resistance was sharp but short. The enemy perceiving he was flanked in a position completely turned, hoisted the white flag and surrendered. It proved to be the command of Generals Prentiss and Wm. H. L. Wallace. It will be observed that General Chalmers' report, written five days after the battle, fixes the hour of Prentiss' surrender at about 4 o'clock; also that Colonel Quinn, who made his report immediately after the battle (April 9), says that the movement to outflank his left was at 2 o'clock and that two regiments surrendered very soon afterwards, and he speaks of the dreadful carnage up to 4:30. Also that Colonel Geddes, of the 8th Iowa, says: Direct communication with the r

erry, and the crowd dispersed. Many of the old soldiers came up to the platform and shook hands with Mrs. Davis and her daughter, Mrs. Hayes. General Gordon, speaking for Mrs. Davis, said: Comrades, Mrs. Davis says she only wishes that you all had one mouth so she could kiss it. Captain Frank Cunningham directed the musical part of the programme, and this was one of its most attractive features. Index.

Confederate valor and devotion. [from the Spartan, Spartansburg, S. C., February 28, 1900.] By Col. Wm. H Stewart, Portsmouth, Va. The grandest era of American chivalry is enshrined in the heroic traditions of the Confederate States. The girlhood, the womanhood, the boyhood and the manhood of the people were imbued with a glowing chivalry. Patriotism in the homes, the sanctuaries, the army, absorbed the minds of all with sublime self-forgetfulness; and now the memory of heroic actions and knightly deeds is written in the hearts of the sons and the daughters of the Confederacy; so that, although the States increase and the boundaries of the Union expand to the limits of the North and South seas, and their offspring scatters over the face of continents, these deeds will be brilliant jewels in the wreck of time which will enkindle in their hearts the cherishing memory of their ancestors of the Southern Confederacy. In 1861 an agricultural people, armed with the noblest imp
