@|t?-s of His Visit to the Confederate Soldiers'
Homo and Other Places of Interest.
Editors Koo wen Courier: In addition
to what I have already written
of our recent trip to Richmond, Ya.,
in brief would say, passing over the part
of the trip from Walhalla to Columbia:
On March !50 at 6.80 a. m. wo boarded a
Soaboard Air Lino train for Richmond.
Tho Seaboard is ono of tho best equipped
railroads in tho South. Tho road-hod is
firm and tho track is of tho henvist
standard rails. Tho engines aro of tho
largest and up-to-date in build with all the
modorn improvements, equipped with
oUu ti io, headlights, and the coaches aro of
tho very latest and most up-to-date style,
being built with a view to comfort. The
train in ohargo of Conductor Gibson was
made up of day coaches, Pullman
sleepers, dining cafe and parlor cars, bo
sides the usual baggage, express and
mall cars, making ten or eloven cars in
the traio, and it is certainly a pleasure to
travel on this magnificent road, wboro
everything is done that can be done for
tho comfort of tho traveling public. We
.arrived in Ki eh mond at 4.56 p. m. on timo,
'f making the run of 300 miles in ten hours
and twenty-five minutes. It is well-known
that a wreck or serious accident is of
rare ooourrenoe on the Seaboard system.
During our stay in Riohmond we spent
an afternoon in a drive about the oity,
visiting many important localities, no

I tably, "the old camping ground," known
to old soldiers as Camp Lee; then an old
j field, or fields, of considerable extent, |
well known as Leo District, and is being
j rapidly built up with splendid residences,
besides schools, colleges and various
j other institutions too numerous to men
; tion. Among the pinces visited was the
Confederate Soldiers' nomo, located on
^ a somewhat elevated plat of ground.
The homo is composed of a number of
neat cc ?age buildings, in which were to
bo seen a number of old Confederates,
neatly dressed in Confederate gray, and
seemed bo perfectly happy and content.
In tho renter is a building presided over
by an old Cotifedoiato, an everlasting
talkor and absolutely "unreconstructed,"
but quito gentlemanly, and taking great
delight in showing un ovor tho building,
which is used mainly as a kind of a
museum, containing quito a numbor of
war relies, tho most noted being tho
horse on which Gen. Jackson wac killod,
and which was kept at the homo until
his death about two years ago, and was
then embalmed by a taxidermist, and
now stands In a glass case. Out in tho
grovo noarby stand a numbor of cannons,
old-time field pieces. After registering
our names we bid tho kind old "rob"
good-bye and drove away for moro sight
sooing. Rospeotfully,
