Yesterday was Coufeiterato Memorial

tin' duy tho clouds were heavy aud it
looked as though we were to have a
(epetitiou of tho past few duys iu raio,
but as tho day advanced old Sol came
out, and tho day was all that oould bo
desirod, Mothers, daughters aud sous
wouded their way to tho uity of tba
dead, aud there plauted tlowers upou
the graves of those who had passed
over the river to that laud from w hence
no traveler over returns. The Ladies
Memorial Association went out to Cedar
Orovo Cemetery and deposited tlowers
cii the grave of every one w here u Hag

liood siuco then, the war seems like a
drenm or n romance. The marvelous
material development of our country
lins iu its splendid progress swept
away mauy of tho marks and scurs
of the mighty struggle that took
placo. The days that immediately
proceeded our lale war seem as re
uiote from the thoughts und idea*,

of the present time, ad the years ol

swept away thousands of lives nud mil

It marked a great epoch; it introduced

Tho history of the past shows us

Once nioro we would oall to mind tho
memory of the brave boys in gray thut
wont out from this city thirty-four
years ago in answer to the call of old
Virgiuia. With only '.?110 votere, Ports
mouth sent out about 1,8UU soldiers.
Brave, noble young fellows they were
?so hopeful, so joyous, so full of
spirit, Koine of them were men of
talent and wealth, some of them had
never before left their parental roof;
some of them left wives, children and
parents, whom they were never agaiu
to see on earth?but hopefully they
went to tho battles on the .fames river,
the Happanauuook, the York, or in
distant purls of the country.
The bodies of some of your comrades
are not sleeping wi'.h their kindred
dust in our cemetery, but far away iu
the wilderness, about l-'rederickauurg,
iu the Bwamps of the Chicshomiuy or
on the hills about Gettysburg. They
died iu the fierceness of battle or in the
awful silence of the nicht that followed.
Their bed was the hard earth und tho
night wind fanned their fevered brows,
but in their death they thought of their
hope in Uod, of thsir old comrados.
aud of their home and loved ones.
Vitions of the peace and plenty that
to-day are ours may have cheered their
dying moments, aud as they thought
ot tho life they had luid down and the
sucrilico tliey had made, of the
broken hearts and the vacant chair,
may they not have asked them
se.lvcs this question, ".Shall he
he forgotten aud our memories perish
?heu our comrades come back to old
Portsmouth aud peace onqp 'more
comes to our land." Yon monument
that rises iu simple grandeur tc the
skies, whither their blessed souls have
flown, is a perpetual witness that the
trials and prosperity of tho days that
have passed since tho days of tb ; war
have not made you forget tho boys who
once (ought by yuiir side. Their voices
still sound in your ears, their manly
faces still rise up before you after tin
lup.se of thirty years aud more. Aud
to day as yon lay (ho llowers ami drop
the tears ou the graves of our soldier
boys, memory will with her swift llight
bear you to tho past aud recall some
who sleep not here, but answered their
roll call for the lust time ou some dis

A silciit struggle has been going on in

nor are you ashamed of the old days,
from I8bT-5,but you tongut'too bravely

action to rekindle tho old Iii es and to
at:r up the old strife. Your deeds havo
become a purt of tho history of tho

and prose for ages to come. Posterity
will give a fair and generous verdict on

they hnve bravely and cheerfully done

erence for tbe simple truth ot religion,
marked; its public scbuols are being
multiplied; its induettios are being de?
veloped; its olimate is mild and its soil
is fertile. Though now aud then a
shadow passes across this visiou of
great promise, we believe iu tbe future
of Virginia and the South. Years it
may bo before the hope is fully real?
ized, but surely as tho sun fulfills its
course so surely will the futuro place
upon tho head of our beloved South?
land a crown ot exceeding glory.
You who have battlod uutior Lee

Those who stayed away from tho
Park yesterday afternoon missed one
of the prettiubt games ever seen on the
home grounds. Dunkle was in the hoi
for tho visitors aud pitched a very
good game, but was tumble to keep tho
locals down, as they havo developed u
batting streak of late which uooeof tho
pitchers seem able to check, Foster,
the uow man, was in the box for
tho loads and created a very
favorable impression. He allowed his
opponents but eight hits and kupt them
so well scattered that up to the soveuth
inning not a man orossed the plate, in
this inning they rnuuagod to r-..-t in otio
run on siugles by Sauford, Lyon ond
Hall aud an out to Hargrove. Owiug
to lack of space, wo cannot go into do
tails of tho game, but if Portsmouth
continues to play ns they did yester?
day they have nothing to fear from
Dyncuburg or Hiohmond, and tho com
ing throe games with Lyocbburg will
bo looked forward to with muuh in
