cription of the burning of Alexandria, Louisiana, by Banks's army, which we have never seen in the Southern pri where their husbands had gone. They applied to General Banks, with tears and entreaties, to be allowed to go oing so, but there was the peremptory order from General Banks not to allow any white citizens to go aboard. be more inhuman and cruel? But this is not all. General Banks found room on his transports for six or seven thpped through the quartermaster to New Orleans, under Banks's order, was thrown overboard to make room for negroin this perfidious military and political campaign. Banks, on arriving at Alexandria, told the people that hises and apply for charity. They, too, applied to General Banks to be allowed to go aboard the transports and goded him at his residence, and General Grover and General Banks honored him in every way possible.

Before the return of the army from Grand Ecore, Judge Elgee went to New Orleans, leaving his family behind, expecting to return. He was not able to do so before the evacuation of Alexandria. Judge Elgee is one of the most accomplished and able men of the South. A lawyer by profession, he occupied a prominent position, both politically and socially, and had immense influence. So great stress was placed upon his taking the oath that one of our bands serenaded him at his residence, and General Grover and General Banks honored him in every way possible.

J. Madison Wells, the Lieutenant-Governor of Louisiana, elected with Hahn, by General Banks's orders, was not spared. He had been a Union man from the beginning. He had a splendid residence in Alexandria, well and richly furnished, at which his own and his son's family resided. His son was absent in New Orleans, attending the Constitutional Convention, of which he was a member, and in which he voted for abolition and all the ultra measures; but that did not secure his family the protection of the government. All was burned. Thousands of people — men, women and
