I am very much interested in the
articles written by thc Confederate
soldiers, appearing in tho Atlanta
Journal, tho Constitution and thc
Chronicle. And I have como to the
conclusion that tho Confederate sol
dier was tho greatest hero of anoient
or modern times, and that tho North
American soldier is not only tho equal
but the superior, of any other in the
world. Now, 1st any enc doubting
tho yalor awl bravery of the Confed
?ralo ?oldicrs search tho official
records of thc Union and Confederate
armies as published by the govern
ment of tho United States. They
will BOO ihut the old veterans are not
exaggerating tho deeds of their com
rades in arm? who fought on the Con
federate side when they talk of the
victory over immense oddB. The
following aro some of tho words
quoted from General Badi, a gallant
Federal general who saved the Federal
army from complete defeat at Shiloh.
This appeared in tho Contury Maga
zine, and afterward, in the third vol
ume of Battlea and Leaders 'in the
"It took a naval fleet and 15,000
troops to advance against a weak fort
manned by less .than 100 men at Fort
Henry; 35,000 with naval co-opera
tion to overcome 12,000 at Donnison;
60,000 to" secure a viotory over 30,000
at Shiloh; 12,000 to cause rotraat of
6,500 entrenched after a mooth of
fighting and maooeuvering at Corinth;
100,000 were repelled by 80,000 io the
Brat peninsular campaign against
Riohmond; 70,000 with a powerful
naval force to inspire tho campaign
which lasted nine months against
40,000 at Vicksburg; 90,000 to barely
withstand the assault of 70,000 at
Gettysburg; 115,000 sustaining a
frightful repulse from 60,000 at
Fredericksburg; 100,000 attacked and
defeated by 50,000 at Ohano?llors
ville; 85,000 held in check two dayo
by 40,0j)0 at Antietam; 43,000 re
taining the field uncertainly against
38,000 at Stone river (Murfreosboro);
70,000 defeated at Chiok?mauga and
beleaguered by 70,000 at Chattanooga,
80,000 merely to break tho investing
line of 45,000 at Chatt&noogo, and
100,000 to proso back 50,000, increas
ed at last to 70,000 from Chattanooga
to Atlanta, a distance of 120 miles,
and then let go, an operation whioh
is commemorated at festive reunions;
50,000 to defeat the investing line of
30,000 nt Nashville, and finally 120,
000 to overcome 60,000 after a year in
General Buell sayo, individually,
the northern soldier waaia no sense
tho inferior of the southern. What?
thou, ie the explanation of this rule
which* is so nearly invariable VIM to
show that . superior numbers were
generally essential io Union vi o tories;
and 4n the success of Union opera
tion o emoh waa. doe to theabantar
of the contest. Revolution ie calon"
lated to inspire bold and desperate
action, and wars of sentiment, of the
nttura of which this partook more in
tho south than in tho north;, are al
ways marked with nu^sae!energy.
Buell gives another reason; ?he eon
duct of the southern generals. They
recognised that the odd o must ge nor"
ally be against them, and that they
must find some means of overcoming
the effects; pf> the fact upon the spirit
of their troops/and themselves setan
example ot a??aoity. To iUustrate

I at tho battle of Caunac, fought io
! 1041, on tho field where Hannibal won
j bis great victory 1,200 years before,
the Normans "struok ten times while
the Qreoks struok ooo," and that less
than 700 of tho northern warriors mot
tho attack of a Bytantino army of
10,000 men, beat it back and slew till
there were none left to slay.
Count Roger, the groat oount who
undertook tho oonq*acst cf Sicily, met j
15,000 Saracens with a force of 740 j
mon and defeated thom with terrible I
slaughter. Leonidas, at tho Pass of
Thermopylae, held baok tho greatest
army ever marshalled unde- banne?*.
It was said that there were a million
men, and yet he definitely hold the
pass until all were ?laiu, save ono,

But of all tho fights of modern
times, that of the Alamo surpasses
all. And the forcea on our side ?
were southern men; the sires of many j
whose sons fought in the war between
the States on tho Confederate side,
as the greater number who died in
tho Alamo wero southern men. One
hundred and eighty men under the
command of Lieutenant Oolonel W.
Barrett Travis, a youog lawyer from
North Carolina, with Oolonel Bowie,
o? Bowie knife fame, and Davy
Crookett, the celebrated shot, held
the Alamo, from February 23rd to
Mcroh 6th against 5,000 Mezioans
under Santa Anna, and they fought
until every man was killed. Bnt they
had plaoed "hors du combat" 1,000
Mosicuue. Santa Anna was so in
sensed at the marvelous and gallant
fight of the 182 brave men who stood
out to the last against him that he
ordered their bodies piled together
like a huge pyramid,, a layer of wood,
a layer of dead, and burned them.
Tho wind scattered their ashes on the
spot their defense had immortalized
and made it forever hallowed ground.
On the monument erected where they
fell to commemorate their unparallel
ed achievement is engraven the signi
"Thermopylae had its messenger of
defeat; the Alamo had none/'

Undo Sain, so wo soe from the
papers, is providing for tho work of
men employed io digging tbs Panama
ditch; purchased a iot of Bibles and
playing cards, and which Will be fur

most aptly remarks, that is on a par

Your Uncle Sam has a good deal of
the enterprising and money-making
i Yankee blood " in him, and we are not
at ali' -surprised at his sending . the
m i xe ? cargo.tb Panama. If it becomes
necessary, he will unhesitatingly' de
clare the religion of Bedha, Confu
cius, or Mahomet in force within the
I canal zone, and ecud out a carload of
idols-: for his heathen' workmen to
worship. Tho old;follow don't bo.bar
bis mind much about tho morai refor
mation of his subjects, just so they
put io a good I day's work shoveling
dirt. It would not be surprising any
day to read thai the government had
opened a first-o las a poker room ,at
Colon, and shippod a carload of
roulette tables to bo used along the
seat of excavation. From the stand
point of piety, morality and consis
tency your Uncle Sam is aa howling
an old hypocrite as John Wanamaker,
john wiir teach a Bible ol GO e Sunday
and s?ll poker ohips all the week.
1 Even in recognising the independ

lie,Uncle Sam condoned and endorsed
the same thing, that brought about
our great Civil War, and caused

gurate a system of African slavery on
the isthmus, and detail a. flotilla, of bis
war ships to go tn Africa aa ?J bring
I him cargoes. While forcing negro .
appointees on our Southern people,
we see that he has instructed his offi
cials to refuse to enroll any black
workmen for the canal. He himself
has drawn the line of demarkation
against the negro more otriotly than
we Southerners. While the darkey is
all right as postmasters and collectors
in the South, he will not answer to
