When heaven was stormy, earth was cold,
And sunlight shunned the wold and wave,
Thought burrowed in the church-yard mould'
And fed on dreams that haunt the grave.
But now that heaven is freed from strife.
And earth's full heart with rapture swells,
Thought soars through fields of endless life
Above the shining Asphodels.
What flower that drinks the south winds's
What sparkling leaf what Hebe rorn,
But flouts the sullen gray-beard Doath,
And laughs our arctic doubts to scorn ?
Pale student, scant of healthful blood,
Your ghastly tomes one moment close;
Pluck freshness from a spring-time bud,
Find wisdom in the opening rose.
Mark the white lily, whose sweet core
Hath many a wild-bee swarm enticed,
And drew therefrom a honied lore
Pure as the tender creed of Christ!
Yea, even the weed, which upward holds ]
Its tiny ear past bower and lawn,
A lovelier faith than yours unfolds,
Caught from the fair faith winds of dawn.

THE CONFEDERATE GENE
A Sad Record of their Fortunes Since APpo
H. W. Grady, in the Atlanta Constitution.
NEW YORK, January 3.-What
a strange, and in the main, what
a sad history is that of the Gen
erals who led the Confederate
armies in the late war. It is a
story of poverty and deprivation,
lit up here and there by a gleam
of good luck-but of poverty b
borne manfully, and of depriva
tion met with the same courage
that led these men to the front of
The fate of the 'Rebel Briga- h
dier' at the c!ose of the war was
enough to depress the most buoy- c
ant among them. They bad put
everything on the turn of the
sword and had lost. Property, e
business and all had been sacrificed
in the ardor of war, and they were a
left, in the fierce light of fame,
without any resource-expected t
to support a certain dignity and
nothing to support it on. There
was no standing army into which
they could be retired with ado-c
quate salary. There was no hope g,
for them inl the thousands of lu
crative offices that- the Republi- ~
cans distributed among the Fed
eral Generals. Their States wore
impoverished and were unable to
support civil establishments that
would furnish offices out of which
anything could be hoped for. Of
course thbe privates of the Con fed
rate army were deserving of all
sympathy; but it seems to met
that the Generals had somewhat
harder lines. At any rate I am
sure that there is no old soldier
that followed the Stars and Bars
that will not road with interest a
kindly inquiry into the history of
these old loaders and their fain
I hardly know where to begin,
but suppose we take the living t
Lees with which to open the hur
ried review. W. H. F. Lee, the(
oldest son of Bobert E. Lee, isI
living at present in Fairfa.x Coun
ty on a farm that belonged to the
estate of his aun t, Mrs. Fitzbugh.1
It is a fine place; the General is
an attentive and successful farmer,
and he gets a comfortable living
out of it. Custis Lee, the next
son, 'succeeded his father as Pres
ident of Washington Lee Univer
sity and lives in Lexington. He
is a bachelor, and his two sisters
live with him. He has fine expec
tations, Judge Hugbes having de
cided that the Arlington estate,
now used as a Federal cemetery,
is his by right of law. The case
has been appealed, but the judg
ment will'bardly be revesed-and
the place will be appraised and
payment made for it. Robert
Lee lives on the old Lee estate in
Westmoreland County, where he is
moving along smoothly, making
enough to_supply his wants. Gen.
Fitzhugh Lee has a farm on the
Potomac, that belonged to his
aunt, Mrs. Fitzbugh, and, it is
said, is showing considerable en
terprise, though not amassing
money. He has a flour mill, I
think, in connection with his

Vashington. First in the impo:
ance of his work is Gen. Marcu
.Wright, who has charge of th
onfederate records, and whbo wa
ooking towards a literary cot
~ection when he was offered thi
lace. Maj. Gen. C. W. Field, whb

n insurance business that gav
im a living, but not much mort
iaj.-Gen. Lamar, w ho was a brav
oldier, has some position abot
,be House, probably being in th
locument room. Maj.-Gen. Cad
nus M. Wilcox is with th
tergeant-at-arms of the Senat
1nd has little fortune outsid
f his position. Maj.-Gen. Sar
rones is. in the adjutant-general
>ffce where he has agood thong
iot a prominent place. Maj.-Gei
Earry Heth, who was a clas:
nate and great friend of Burnsid<
aas a comfortable position in th
~reasury-and this closes the ro
[ beleve of the Generals of tb
outhern armies about Washing
on in any capacity, unless Get
D. L. Stevenson, who was forme>
y clerk of a Congressional con
mittee, still holds his place.
The cause of education has et
aged the time and gives suppo:
Io a good many of the old Ieader
of the boys in grey. Gen. Custi
e i Lce is at Washington Lee as
d before noted. Gen. Kirby Smith
Df is chancellor of the University of
,li the South at Suwanec, Tennessee,
a- his necessities making him great
g ly dependent on his salry. Lieut.
r- Gen. ). H1. Hill is President of the
i- State Agricultural College of Ar- 1
-e kansas at Favettcvillc, at a sal
i- [ary of $3,500. He has been poor r
ever since the war. anc: lost much
d time and money in publishing
-e a periodical that was, however, a
t creditable and pure )ublication, I
o and in teaching school. Brig..Gen. (
s M. P. Lowry has charge of a fe
t male school at Salem Miss., and !
. is prospering finely. Lieut.-Gen. r
o A. P. Stewart is chancellor of the N
University of Mississippi, where 6
n he gets a good salary and has a I
, fine position. Brig..G-en. Lilly is I
- a professor somewber), I think at t
a Washington.Lee Ufiversity, and
b- this, I believe, closes the list of s
n Generals who are engaged in a
d training the young men of the i
i, South. And yet there is Gen. J. C
3- Argyle Smith, now superintendent
, of State instruction for Mississippi.
There are very few of our old u
Generals who have accepted office 1
from the Federal Government. r
r Lieut.-Gen. Longstreet is minis- r
n ter to Tnrkey. Col. Mosby, who E
e won the prominence of a General, I
- is consul to Hong-Kong. Maj.- v
e Gen. Lafayette McLaws, who was r
r one of the powers of the Army of 1
e Virginia, is postmaster at Savan
I nab. Maj.-Gen. James Fagi^ was E
J United States marsha1 of Arkan- e
a sas under Grant, but I believe is I
, out of the service now. I do not i
know of any others that hold po- I
litical appointments, and believe 2
there are none others. Oh yes, b
i there is Gen. Jack Wharton, of s
i Louisiana, n ho took the marshal- g
> ship of the New Orl.ans district , E
- few years ago. t
r The railroad business has cap- I
- tured its quota of the Generals a
s and pays good salaries for ligh t f
i and genteel work. Maj.-Gen. John 3
- C. Brown, of Tennessee, is first 1
a vice-president of tUc Texas Pa- a
a cific, with headquarters at Mar -
-shall and a salary of $10,000 a e
1 year and expenses. He had money (
-before he took this place, having a
a bad a practice of 8.000 to $10,000 v
- from soon after the war. Major
- Gen. John B. Marmaduke is rail- V.
.road commissioner- of the State of i
>Missouri on a salary of $5,000 a Li
- ear, on which he lives with dig- s
- nity and ease. He is a bachelor d
3 and will probably leave his po. b
- sition with a competency. He g
I stands high in St. Louis. Ma- a
S jor-General T. L. iRosser, one d
of the most daring cavalry- I
f men that ever drew a sabre, is s
t chief engineer of the Northern n
SPacific at a big salary and has
t made a for tune in lands along the is
e line. Lieut.-Gen. John B. Gordon li
.- is counseL for the Louisville and b
Nashville Road, at a salary of' s
. $14,000, and Gen. IE. P. Alexander, $
- the best artillerit of the army, is I
D practical manager of the same d
-road at probably as large a salary. c
s Gen. R. H. Ranscem was in charge n
e of the freight tagency of an im- s
s portant Southerr, line. Maj.-Gen. t
.E. C. Walthall lives in Grenada, (
s Miss., and is gener-al counsel for I:
the Mississippi Central road at p
C a salary of $10,000 per annum, an d I
r is well off in the world's goods. s
d There are three of our Generals c
e who have become chiefs of police. r
3. Brig-Gen. iR. H. Anderson, a dash- e
e ing cavalry officer, is chief of po- (
t lice in Savannah.- Brig- Gen. Tige v
e Anderson is chief of police in At- c
- lanta, and Brig-Gen. WV. W. Allen c
e is chief of' police in Montgomery, v~
o There is a number who have r
n turned the sword into a plough, t
's and are leading bucolic lives. Be- r
sides the Lees, who have gone to I
2. farming, there is MXaj.-Gen. Frank i
3 B. Cheatham, w bo has a fine place I
, in Coffee County, Tenn., on whbich s
e he makes a goo)d living. Gen. WV. v
11 H. ('Red') Jackson, who married 1i

The law, of course, has its
otaries. Gen. Toombs, of Geor

esenting the State against the
ailroads volunteering for the

I. R. Jackson, both of whom are

entleman and general favorite,
nd blessed is the mahogany un
er which his legs are crossed;
[aj.-Gen. D. H. Maury is at in
arance, and has done well, though
ot so well as Gen. Robertson.
Of miscellaneous pursuits, there
a variety. Gen. Jubal Early is
ving at Lynchbu rg, a Bourbon
achelor, in tolerable circumn
Lances. It is said that he draws
5.000 a year from the Louisiana
ottery as comnmissioner of special
rawings ; Maj.-Gen. Mahone is
onsidered rich, having made
oney in railroad bonds and
ocks, it is said, and is now sena
ar elect from Virginina; Lieut.
hen. C. Pemnberton is living quiet
and in poor health in Philadel
hia, where he has a rich brother.
le is himself in moderate circum
ances. He has writ:.en a book
n Vicksburg's defence and sur
ender, but I do now know wheth
r or not he will publish it. Maj.
ien. S. B. Buckner has had a
aried experience. His wife own
d large tracts of unimprov
d real estate in Chicago,
bich was confiscated, but after
ards recovered. It was then
ortgaged and built up-and in
he panic w as sacrificed for its
ortgage-money, leaving Gen.
uckner poor. He is now living
2 Louisville. Brig.-Gen. Zack
)eas, of Alabama, wvent into Wall
treet and made about $200,000,
rith which he retired, and is now
.ving in ease. Brig.-Gen. P. D.

avalryman, also made a fortune
2 Wall street, but lost over
100,000 in a few days, and went
o London, where he is now living

rig.-Gen. J. WV. Frazer, who
irrendered Cumberland Gap, is
Newm York, in the brokerage
business, doing well. Brig.-Gen.
Thomas Jordan is editor of the
3ining Record, on Broadway-a
prosperous paper. Maj.-Gen. Lor
ing, who served four years in the
Egyptian army, is now engineer
for a mining company in New
Mexico, and is taking chances of
a big fortune. Gen. Frank Arm
strong has made a fortune by
running a 'pony' express in Texas,
and Gen. A. W. Reynolds, who
went to Egypt with Loring, is still
there, though out of service. Gen.
Tom Benton Smith lost his mind,
and was, the last time I heard of
him, in an insane asylum in Ten
It is a melancholy fact that near
ly every General who died or was
killed, died in poverty brought
about by his devotion. Raphael
and Paul Semmes both died poor,
Gen. Zollicofle' left nothing to a
family of five daughters, but they
have all married, save one, and
have married well. Gen. Pillow's
death caused the sale of his house
and library, which, however, his
friends rebought by subscription.
Gen. T. C. Hindman, who was as
sassinated, left nothing at al.
Gen. Dick Taylor died poor, and
his two daughters are living with
his sister at Warrenton. His book
did not pay. Gen.'Stonewall' Jack
son left his wife and daughter
without means, but his name has
raised friends for them, one of
whom, Mr. Wade Bolton, of Mem
phis, I think, left them $5,000 in
his will. Gen. Polk left nothing
to his family, but his son,
Dr. Polk, has an immense prac
tice and distinguished character
in New York. Gen. Bushrod
Johnson left only one son, who
is doing well, and Gen. Forrest,
who left but little, left it with
a thrifty and prosperous son,
who makes all that is needed.
Gen. Ewell's wife had about $100,
000 worth of property in St. Louis,
I think, which was saved from
onfiscation by a friend. Mrs.
Ew.ell died within three days of
er husband. Gen. Bragg died
without property, and his wife
ives with her sister in New
rleans. Tfhe history of Gen.
ood's children is.part of the his
ory of the country. Gen. D. H .
ooper died in poverty. Maj.
en. WV. H. C. Whiting, of Fort
isher fame, who died in Wil
ington prison in '64, left noth
