Gen. Sherinall and Gen Lee.
What Sherman practiced in his
march through Georgia and South
'Carolina in 1864-65, he preached as
early as 1863. Iu a letter to Gen.
Hlledi'k, da'ted September 17, 1868,
-he-says that "we (the army) will if
meed be, take every life, every.sore of
land, every particle of property,
-eve,rytlaing that to us seems proper,"
and -that he would keep up war, pure
and simple, and make Southern peo.
ple "so bick of war that generations
would .pass away before they wouid
again appeal to it." This is in the
-same vein os the declaration, a year
later, that he would "make Georgia
howl" and that the Fifteenth Corps
does its work well. A simple perusal
of the letters of Sherman, published
by himself, will show that such orimes
as the burning of Columbia "were, in
his view, legitimate and proper-sots
-of war. But against this we can set
-the opinion of a better soldier and
better man than Sherman, whose
judgment was cool and dispassionate
in things which came home to him
.a-nd his people as in things with
which he and hmis had no personal
concern. When Gen. Lee visited
-this State, not long before his death,
a gentleman who knew him well, ask
ed -his opinion of Sherman's eoduct.
This, it must be remember,ed, was
several years after the war, when
there were the same means that there
wero tihe same means that there are
mow of forming a true ba'dgment.

D). H-. " sGen. Sherman, in his
snach hrog.hthe country, justified,
under the usages of war, in burning
our homes over the heads of our
women and children while we were in
tihe field ?"
G-en. Lee arose from hie chair with
his eyes brightened, and said .:"No,
sir I e, sir I it was the aet of a
eavage. He was not justiAed under
the usages of war."
This we have from the lips of the
gentleman to whom Gen. Lee said
these worde. They are worthy of
note, and.the phrase that (Gen. Lee
used in speaking of Sherman will be
remembered to Sherman's shame
when every other bitterness of the
war is forgotten :"It was the act of
a savage !"-News and Courier.

The grest fwA i4 6oNrih of

piojnio of the: Independent Order of

Gen. N. N. Forrest, Gen Gideon, ..
Pillow, (ol M. C. Gallaway, ot the
Appeal, Capt. J. Harvey Mathes, of
the Ledger, Alderman Heury G.
Dent, Major Minor Keriwather and
Dr. Clark. President ienley, of the
Pole Bearers, opened the proceedings
with a brief speech. He said they
had not come together to disouss poli
tics, but to "pull down the political
and bring about peace, joy and
President Henley then said: "Gen.
Forrest, allow mo to introduce to you
Miss Lou Lewis, who, as the repre.
santative of the colored ladies, will
present you with a bouquet, to as.
sure you of the sincerity they enter.
tain for the objects of this occasion
[cheer] and as an offering of peace."
Lou Lewis then advanced to where
Gen. Iorreat was standing, and pre
sented the bouquet with the follow.
iog remarks :
"Mr. Forrest, allow me to present
you this bouquet as a token of recon.
ailiation and an offering of peace and
good will." [Applause.]
Gen. Forrest received the bouquet,
x-nd in response said:
the flowers as a memento of recon
3-iliavion between the white and color
ed vaees of the Southern States. I
kccept it more particularly as it

Gen. Pilloit made an address of I
sensiderable length, in which he
gave the colored people some sage I
advioe. Hion. Casey V oung, who had
expected to be present andi makde a
speech, was umiable to do so on ae.
scant of illness, sent a letter, which~
was read and wola received.
Great enthusiasm was manifested
by the colored peg9Dl throughout the
proceedings, and the patriotic renti
ments expressed by the speakers were
frequently applauided.

which 8tonewall Jackson possessed.

Professor Langston, in a similar
strain, remarked that he was tl4ere
to declare his independence for .all
who were his followers. The hour
is come, he oontinued, when we

and so troubled with rheumatiam that
he has to employ a gool deal of leis.
-ure-in attendi to it, :interbated me
as having been the personal keeper of
Mr. Jefferson Davis when ioarera
ted in Fortress Monroe. He was unfor.
tutato enough to have committed to
him the painful duty of putting the
Confederate ex-President in irone.
It was one of those stupid blunders
which, were it possible, should be
doisigned to oblivion, but, sinoe that
can bardly be, it is well enough to
know that it was at the time regarded
by sensible men liko Capt Titlow as a
wholly -unnecessary as4i- gratuit4J
insult. Tb offioer In command had
orders from 8coretary Stanton to iron
Mr. Davis should any exigency re
quire it. But there was no sugh eil.
genoy. He was seoure in the inner
aparti-ent of a casement, with son .
tries in th gun toom that opened
from it, and other sentries outside
in front and rear by night and 'day.
When Capt. Titlow, as orderqd by
his superior offioer, Gen.. M--, 'n.
tered the. casemste, the blacksmith
fullowing him with the irons,; Mr.
Davis was seated on his cot,. O'Cre
being no furniture besides bdt a stol
and a few articles of tin.aase. When
he glanced at the blacksmith: and
Domprehended the situation, he' ex.
ulaiaed, "My God I this indignity to

At first he pleaded for opportunity to
inquire of Secretary Stanton. ThOD
his excitement rose to fury as he
Pralked the cel, venting itlelf in al.
most incoherent ravings. The @ap.

'ho sentries rushed forward to disarm

heir'V'oes. Oapt-Titow explained
hat such d1monstrations of self
lefense were fooish and useless, and
hat it would be much better for Mr.

essity. But, while receiving this
dvice, he took the opportunity of
reasping the musket of one of the
entries, and in the furious endeavor
o wrest it from him, quite a souffle
neued. That ended, the captain
