TRIP TO BALTIMORE

the shadow, as it were, of one of
the greatest seats of learning: in our
south land. We saw nothing that
reminded us of a school or a church
in the country districts. Perhaps
they have them "back off fr$m the
The seat of the university vf Vir
ginia is about 100 miles south west
of Washington. We saw the'build
ings in the distance, but nothing of
the town. This is the most pictur
esque section of the route. We are
first on one side and then on anoth
er of the mountains or immense
hills. The autumn color of the
leaves of the small trees, and the
streams, and the red apples clinging
on the trees aie beautiful. There are
small houses under the hills and
little patches between the foot hills
and the streams, and we suspect

finest place in the world for them.
Orange, \Ca\pepper, Calverton,
Manassas and Alexandria were the
most important stops made before
reaching Washington. We crossed
the Rapidan, the Rapahannook and
Bull Run. This embraces a section
of country of about 80 miles and is
decidedly the best we saw in Vir
ginia. There is quite a good deal of
hill land all along but of a better
quality. There is a good deal of
loamy land, also red sandy land.
The farm houses and the surround
ings are much better. Guess our
coach must have gqtton "back off
from the railroads." There is more
grain sowed, more stock and some
barns and other outbuildings." All
this section of the state is historic
ground. There is perhaps now little
or no evidence of the great straggle
of the sixties. The bones that once
bleached the landscape have disap
peared as mother earth absorbed the
life blood of the flower of the south.
The destruction of life was perhaps
greater in Virginia than any other
state. The battles of Cedar Moun
tain, Beverly Ford, Brandy, Gains
ville, Bull Run 'and Fairfax were
all fought not far from tKe line of
' the Southern. Space forbids us from
attempting to give even the minut
est detail of any of these famous
battles. We may say, however, in
passing that it was at Brandy sta
tion July '63 that Col. Frank
Hampton (brother of our Wade
Hampton) fell mortally wounded;
and it was here that CJapt -3?ar}ey
was killed by the same shell that
cut off Gen. Butler's foot and kill
ed his horse under him.
Is a quaint old town on the Po
tomac river and was the first capital
of Virginia. It hasn't grown a foot
in an hundred years. The people
here pride themselves in being an
cient and like to tell you of the old
church Washington worshipped in
and of "the old Masonic lodge and
of the Marshall house on which
floated a Confederate flag that was
obnoxious to President Lincoln.
One Col. Ellsworth of the United
States army ascended the roof in
tho night time and hauled down the
colors which were so displeasing to
the President but exchanged his life
for the deed.
We will leave for a more oppor
tune time to write. "We are tired
now and sleepy too." Our Southern
1,000 mile ticket don't go on the
Pennsylvania railroad. It's out with
your chinck or walk. But the darkie
comes in here. It's all nigger after
you pass Washington. They step on
your toes and fall down in your lap
while the northerners cuss the rail
road* and the government for not
having separate cars.
Between Washington and Balti
more I 'never saw a single house
being built at any of the towns.
And you will be . surprised to know
there isn't but one chicken between
the two places a distance of 40
miles-one old domineck hen. No
