Ex-??iraoldcnt Jefferson Davin SpcaliS
Hto Tfflbato to Leo.
For tho first time since the fall of the
Confederacy, ox-President Davis makes a
formal address. The occasion that opened
his eloquent lips was the death of Qen.
Lee. Our readers will read with intense
interest the report of his remarks, else?
where given. His oause is gone, but
the manhood of JEFFERSON DAVIS sur?
Tan STATE FAIR.-Already the fair
grounds are presenting a busy aspect.
Captain J. C. Bell is about finishing the
mechanical departments entrusted to his
supervision, and onr friend, Mr. Brown,
is about closing bis coloring depart?
ment. Everything is in order. Mr. A.
Y. Lee has been busy with his artistic
arrangements. And now Colonel D. W.
Aiken, with an efficient corps of assist?
ants, is in the efficient discharge of his
To-day will be a busy one in the
arrangement and reception of articles.
Many have already been entered. The
prospects are full of promise. An
efficient police will keep order.
THE ARMISTICE AND PEACE.-The ar?
mistice on the terms reported to be ar?
ranged by M. Thiers and Bismarck has
been approved by the French Republi?
can Government, which itself has just
been largely endorsed by the vote of the
Paris population. All the probabilities
are, therefore, that hostilities will not
again be resumed between Prussia and
Franco, TJ1? territorial question may,
however, the Baltimore Sun suggests,
yet present a sore difficulty with the
French-that i?, they will find it hard to
reconcile themselves to yielding to the
quiet but apparently fixed purpose of
Prussia to hold more or less, of Alsace
and Lorraine, or at least to neutralize
their territory. The armistice is to be
based on the status quo existing on the
day of signature, and allows twenty-five
days for the general elections throughout
Franco. It is a striking fact that the
chief agents on the French side in pro?
curing the arrangements are Orleanists.
M. Thiers, who has been so busy with
negotiations from one point to another,
and who is now in bis 74th year, is an
Orleanist, and General Trochu, now at
the head of affairs, is said to lean that
way. Bonapartism is dead enough, but
there is room for apprehension, with the
interest of monarohs brought to bear on
all sides, and by the powerful victor iu
the case, especially, that Republicanism
is to have an unequal contest in which to
maintain itself when the terms of peace
come to be arranged.
Since the above was prepared, the
telegraph informs us that affairs havo
taken a different turu, aud the war will
continue to be waged. We await the
turn of affairs with considerable interest.
IMPORTANT CASES.-Three important
cases are to come up oarly in tho De?
cember term of the United States Su?
preme Court. The first involves the
constitutionality of tho cotton tax law,
the second is whether the confiscation
laws are constitutional, and tho third is
as to the validity of tho civil rights bill.
This last came up on a writ of error from
Kentucky, being a case where a mau was
tried iu the United States Courts for the
murder of a colored man.
TUE COLORED LEGISLATOR NOT DEAD.
The colored legislator from Clark
County, Georgia, Alfred Richardson,
shot on Tuesday night in Watkiusvillc,
according to tho Athens Banner, receiv?
ed only a slight flesh wound. Richard?
son has a one-horse doggery, and ono re?
port says he was shot by some of his
colored constituents because he refused
to "treat." Another attributes the
shooting to the mysterious Ku Klux.
A fatal coincident is reported from be?
fore Toni. Among the persons killed
there daring the bombardment was a
young girl who was literally torn into
two piecos by a shell. She had been
born sixteen years ago in front of Se?
bastopol, and the fright occasioned by
the bursting of a shell had brought
about her prematuro birth and the death
of her mother. On the 24th of Septem?
ber lost she was killed herself by a shell.
FATAL ACCIDENT.-Saturday morning,
about 7 o'clock, Ansel Bryan, colored, of
Mount Holly, was run over by a train on
the North-eastern Railroad, while at?
tempting to save his dog from tho same
fate, his left arm, right leg and lower
jaw bono beiog badly fractured. Ho
survived but a short time.
CASUALTIES.-During tho week ending
with tho dawn of Saturday, Charleston
hos been visited by an unusual number of
deaths by aocidont and other sudden
causes. A recapitulation exhibits tho
following results: Sudden deaths, five;
drowned, three; suicide, ono; supposed
SUICIDE.- Mr. A. B. Loug, United
States District Attorney at Now Orleans,
committed suicide a few days ago.
When discovered in his room tho un?
fortunate man was on his back, with his
knees drawn up and arms extended.
Mr. George Chapman committed sui?
cido iu Charleston, on the 4th.

AU^raeting-oX es-Goafoderato sol?
diers and Bailors-ljeld ip Bjbbujonda fow
days eiDQo,1 Mr. Davis modo the foUOvringr
cipqnent speech: *
As Mr, Davis arose, to walk to tbp
stand ov?ry Bprsq? in the hoqbe rose to
his feet, and there followed such a storm
of applaso as seemed to shako the very
foundations of the building, while cheer
upon cheer was echoed from tho throats
of veterans salutiDg one whom they de?
lighted to honor.
Mr. Davis spoke at length, and with
his accustomed thrilling, moving elo
quonce. He addressed his hearers os
.'Soldier aud sailors of the Confederacy,
comrades and friends:" Assembled on
this sad occasion, with hearts oppressed
with the grief that follows the loss of
him who was our leader ou many a
bloody battle-field, a pleasing though
melancholy spectacle is presented. Hith?
erto, and in all times, men have been
honored when successful, but here is the
case of oye who, amid disaster, went
down to his grave, and those who were
his companions in misfortune have as?
sembled to houor his memory. Il is as
much au honor to you who gives, as to
him who receives, for above the vulgar
test of merit you show yourselves com?
petent to discriminate between him who
enjoys and ho who deserved success.
Robert E. Lee was my associate aud
friend in tho militury academy, and wo
were associates and friends when he was
a soldier and I a Congressman ; aud asso?
ciates and friends when he led the armies
of the Confederacy and I presided in its
Cabinet. We passed through many sail
scenes together, but I cannot remember
that there was ever aught but perfect
harmony between us. If ever tbero was
difference of opinion it was dissipated by
discassion, and harmony was tho result,
I repeat, xce never disagreed, and I may
add that I never in my life saw in him
tho slightest tendency to self-seeking. It
was not his to make a record, it was not
his to shift blame to other shoulders; but
ib was his, with an eye fixed upon the
?welfare of his country, uover faltering, to
follow the line of duty to the end. His
was the heart that braved every difficul?
ty ; his was tho mind that ivrought vio
tory out of defeat.
Ho has been charged with "want of
dash." I wish to say that I never knew
Leo to falter to attempt anything ever
mau could dare. Au attempt has also
boon made to throw a cloud upon his
character, because he left the army of the
United States to join in the struggle for
the libertry of his Stato. Without trench?
ing at all upon politics, I deem it my
duty to say ono word in reference to this
charge. Virginian born, desceuded from
a family illustrious in Virginia's annals,
given by Virginia to the service of the
United States, he represented her in the
Military Academy at West Point. He
was not educated by the Federal Go?
vernment, but by Virginia; for she paid
her full share for the support of that in?
stitution, and was entitled to demand in
return the servicos of her sons. Enter?
ing the army of tho United States, he
represented Virginia there also, and no?
bly. On many a hard-fought field Lee
was conspicuous, battling for his uative
State as-much as for tho Union. He
came from Mexico crowned with honors,
covered by brevets, and recoguized,
young as ho was, as one of the ablest of
his country's soldiers. And to prove
that he was estimated then as such, let
mo tell you that when Lee was a Cap
taiu of Engineers, stationed in Balti?
more, the Cuban Junta in New York
selected him to be their leader in the
struggle for tho independence of their
native country. They were anxious to
secure his services and offered him every
temptation that ambition could desire.
He thought tho matter over, and, I re?
member, carno to Washington to consult
mo os to what ho should do, and when I
began to discuss the complications which
might arise from his acceptance of tho
trust, be gently rebuked me, saying this
was not the lino upon which he wished
my advice, tho simple question was
" Whether il was right or not." He had
been educated by tho United States, and
felt wrong to accept place in tho army
of a foreign power. Such was bis ex?
tremo delicacy, such was tho nice sense
of houor of tho gallant gentlemau whoso
death we deplore. But whou Virginia
withdrew-tho State to whom he owed
his first and last allegiance-the same
nice seuso of honor lcd him to draw his
sword and throw it in tho scale for good
or for evil. Pardon me for this brief
defenco of my illustrious friend.
When Virginia joined tho Confederacy,
Robert Lee, the highest officer in tho
little army of Virginia, came to Rich?
mond, and not pausing to inquire what
would be his rank in tho service of the
Confederac3', went to Western Virginia
uudor tho bolief that ho was still an of?
ficer of the State. Ho came back, carry?
ing the heavy weight of defeat aud un?
appreciated by tho people whom ho
served, for they could not know, as I
knew, that if his plans and orders had
been carriod out, the result would have
been victory rather than retreat. You
did not know, nor I would not have
known it had ho not broathod it in mv
ear only at my earnest requost, and beg"
ging that nothing bo said about it. The
clamor which then arose followed him
when he wont to South Carolina, so that
it became necessary on his going to
South Carolina to write a lotter to tho
Governor of that State, telling him what
manner of man ho was. Yet, through
all this, with a magnanimity rarely
equalled, he stood in silence, without de?
fending himself or allowing others to de?
fend, for he was unwilliugjo offend any
ono who was wearing a sword and strik?
ing blows for tho Confederacy.
Mr. Davis then spoko of tho straights
to which tho Confederacy was reduced,
and of tho darger to which her capital
was exposed jiiht after the battle of Seven
Pines, aud told how Goucral Leo had
conceived and executed tho desperate
plan to turu their flank and roar, which,
after sevou days of bloody battle, was
crowned with tho prof
mond, while tho ?ne*
tho rai&r- Tho
io th? oi?ijamBtan*
?croeai?? the Pofcooap aod.tt ,
froh into -Pennsylvania/"'.Ho (Mr. Da
) tvos um ed the responsibility for that I
movement. The enemy bad long been |
concentrating his force, and it waa evi?
dent that if they continued their Bteady
progress, tho Confederacy would be over?
whelmed. Our ouly hope waa to drive
them to tho defence of their own capital,
wo being enabled in tho meantime to re?
inforce our shattered army. How well
Gen. Lee carried out that dangerous ex?
periment need not be told. Richmond
was relieved, the Confederacy was re
lieved, and time was obtained, if other
things had favored, to reinforce the army.
But, said Mr. Davis, I shall not at?
tempt to review the military career of our
fallen chieftain. Of the man, how shall
I speak? Ile was my friend, and in that
word is included all that I could say of
any man. His moral qualities rose to
the height of his genius. Self-denying
always intent upon the one idea of duty
-self-controlled to au extent that many
thought him cold. His feelings were
really warm, and his heart melted freely
at the sight of a wounded soldier or the
story of tho sufferings of tho widow and
orphan. During the war he was ever
conscious of the inequality of the menus
at his control; but it was never his to
complain or to utter a doubt-it waa
always his to do. Wheu in the last cam?
paign he was beleaguered at Petersburg,
and painfully aware of the straights to
which we were reduced, he said: "With
my army in the mouutaius of Virginia,
I could carry on this war for twenty years
longer." His men exhausted and his
supplies failing, he was unable to carry
out his plans. An untoward event caus-1
ed him to anticipate the movement, and
the army of Northern Virginia w;as,over?
whelmed. But iu the surrender -?^e. |
anticipated conditions that havo not been
fulfilled-ho expected his army to be re?
spected and his paroled soldiers to be |
allowed the enjoyments of lifo aud pro
perty. Whether theso conditions have i
been fulfilled, let others say.
Here he now sleeps in the laud ho
loved so well, and that land is not Vir?
ginia only, for they do injustice to Lea
who bolievo ho fought only for Virginia.
He was ready to go any where, on any
service for the good of his country, and
his heart iras as broad as die fifteen States
struggling for the principles that our fore?
fathers fought for in the revolution of 177G.
He is sleeping in the same soil with the
thousands who foqght under the same
flag, but first offered up their lives.
Hero the living aro assembled to honor
his memory, aud there the skeleton
sentinels keep watch over his grave.
This citizen! this soldier! this great
Qeueral! this true patriot! left behind
him tho crowning glory of a true Chris?
tian. His christianity enuobled him in
life, and affords us grounds for the be?
lief that he is happy beyond the grave.
But, while we mourn the loss of thc
great aud the true, drop wo also tears of
sympathy with her who was his help?
meet in life-the noble woman who,
while her husband was in the field lead?
ing the army of the Confederacy, though
an invalid herself, passed the time iu
knitting socks for the marching soldiers.
A woman fit to bo the mother of heroes
aud heroes are descended from her.
Mourning with her, wc can only offer
the consolation of a Christian. Our loss
is not his, but he now enjoys tho rewards
of a life well spent and a never wavering
trust in a risen Saviour. Thia day we
unite our words of sorrow with those of
tho good aud great throughout Christen?
dom, for his fame is gone over the
water-his deeds will bo remembered;
and when tho monument we build shall
have crumbled into dust, his virtues will
still live, a high model for the imitation
of generations yet uuboru.
Wo havo given but a faint idea of the
eloquent thoughts and chaste oratory of
the speaker. His words wero heard with
profound attention, and received with
