First Brigade of the Army of the Potomac, and continued under Bonham, Kershaw, Conner, and Kennedy, a brigade throughout the war. A correspondent of the Charleston Mercury, who accompanied the first South Carolina Volunteers, writing on the 26th April, thus describes the appearance of Richmond on the arrival of this regiment: We reached Richmond on an auspicious day. The ordinance by which Virginia became a member of the Southern Confederacy had been adopted by the Convention in secret shad with him the Lexington cadets, under Major Colston, to assist in drilling the raw troops. The South Carolina brigade, under General Bonham, was encamped near the reservoir. There were volunteers from Georgia also, arriving as early as the 26th April, but I have not been able to ascertain, though I have made considerable enquiry, more particularly in regard to them except that two of the companies were from Macon, the Macon Volunteers and Floyd Rifles. On the 26th, Major-General Joseph E

Terms of Capitulation of the command of Lieutenant-General Richard Taylor. General order, no. 54: headquarters Department Ala., Miss. And E. La., meridian, Miss., May 6, 1865. I. The surrender of General Lee's army, on the 9th of April, and of General Johnston, on the 26th of April, included all Confederate forces east of the Mississippi, excepting the small army under my command, and virtually ended the war, so far as any promise of ultimate success east of the Mississippi was concerned. With the Mississippi impassable for troops, it was impossible to withdraw towards the west and we could accomplish no good by prolonging a useless struggle here, against overwhelming numbers. Once convinced of these facts, my duty, as Departmental Commander, was to stop the further loss of life and devastation of States already impoverished by war; and, whilst still in my power to do so, make such terms for my troops as would preserve their honor, and best protect them and the peop

Major Stiles spoke for half an hour, perhaps, and nothing short of a verbatim report of his remarks could convey anything like an adequate impression of his eloquence and tenderness in his reference to his old commander and friend. At the conclusion of Major Stiles' remarks the resolutions were unamiously adopted. After some remarks by Captain Louis F. Bossieux, the meeting adjourned. Memorial meeting. A Memorial Meeting was held at the Academy of Music, Sunday afternoon, April 26th. The commodious hall was filled to its utmost capacity. Lee and Pickett Camps Confederate Veterans attended in a body. Governor McKinney and Colonel William E.

New Orleans, Louisana. Discourse of Rev. B. M. Palmer, D. D. On the occasion of the Johnston memorial services held in the First Presbyterian Church, in New Orleans, La., Sabbath evening, April 26th, a highly thoughtful and impressive discourse was delivered by Rev. B. M. Palmer. At the request of the Associations of Confederate Veterans, before whom it was delivered, Dr. Palmer wrote it out from memory for publication. This rendition is here presented. Its earnest and dispassionate spirit commands regardful consideration. Daniel II. 20-22: Daniel answered and said, Blessed be the name of God forever and ever; for wisdom and might are His; and He changeth the times and the seasons; He removeth kings and setteth up kings; He giveth wisdom unto the wise, and knowledge to them that know understanding; He revealeth the deep and secret things; He knoweth what is in the darkness, and the light dwelleth with Him. There is a pathos in this assemblage which will subdue any heart

s comfortable when Colonel Williams ordered us out, saying it was dangerous, as the enemy would shell us. I and most of us had hardly gotten out when sure enough a shell penetrated the log just over the entrance of the cabin and burst, killing Corporal E. M. Ferneyhough and wounding private M. F. Wingfield, who was fortunate to come out with his eyes only blackened by splinters. Corporal Ferneyhough was one of our best and most daring comrades, and we sadly regretted his loss. On the 26th of April there was a great time in camp. We were there in the rear—in reserve, as it was called. The reorganization and election of officers was the subject. Having enlisted for one year, our time expired on the 21st of that month, but there was little ceremony wasted by the Confederate Government as to our right of being discharged. We were permitted to reorganize. This appears to have been about the only favor extended. We, of course, realized that if we should pack our knapsacks and leav

. On all sides were heard public expressions of determination to prolong the struggle. While rumors were afloat to the effect that Lee had only surrendered a small part of his forces, and that the bulk of his army had joined Johnston; that President Davis and his Cabinet had escaped across the Mississippi river and would reorganize the government at Shreveport, La., and other unfounded reports of like nature, which deferred for a brief season the despair which was soon to follow. On April 26th General Joe Shelby, of Missouri, issued an address to his men at Pittsburg, Tex., in which he said: Stand by the ship, boys, as long as there is one plank upon another. All your hopes and fears are there. All that life holds dearest and nearest are there. Your bleeding motherland-pure and stainless as an angel-guarded child — the proud, imperial South, the nurse of your boyhood and the priestess of your faith, is there and calls upon you, her children, her best and bravest, in the prid
