The twenty-fifth Anniversary
of His Capture.
AT IBWINSVILLE, GEOBGIA.

en's Clnthot? -What ISecame of tho Con
federate Gold and Silver?
April 2, ISft), is the quarter centenary of
that Sunday of panic and ruin at Richmond,
Va., when Grant's army pierced the defenses
of Petersburg. Jefferson Davis was in his
pew at St. Paul's churcli. A. sentinel en
tered and whispered something in the Con
federate president's ear. He arose and left
The outer works of Richmond had fallen ; the
rest must follow. What could be done must be
done quickly. Only one road wja still open,
that to Danville. The chivalric Lee and his
nnny could not escape by that. The Confeder
ate president and his cabinet could.and did. A t
10 o'clock that Sunday night a closely packed
train left the station for Danville. It con
tained Jefferson Davis, his cabinet, tho ar
chives of the Southern Confederacy, a guard
of picked men, and the contents of the
April 4, the Confederate government was
set up at Danville. It remained there six
days. Mr. Davis
could not be per
suaded that the
doom of the Con
sealed. He believed
in his star almost
up to the time ho
that Lee had sur
yirmore the Confeder-
- acy packed up and
fled, this time to
R Greeusborough, 27.
C. At Greensbor-
Sesator itEAGAS. ough the fallen
president met Johnston and Beauregard.
Evon then Mr. Davis believed in the Confed
eracy, and ordered Johnston to continue tho
struggle. But Johnston refused.
Onward still Davi lied, like tho Wandering
Jew. Charlotte, 2f. C, was the next stop
ping place. Part of tho journey was made
in wagons. At Charlotte news reached Davis
jf Johubton's surrender. From Charlotte
the party went to Abbeville, S. 'J. Davis
bperl to be able to reach Texas and the
southwest, if possible, still to build a Confed
eracy there; if not, then to escajie to Mexico
But Wilson's cavalry formed a cordc
across the path to tho southwest, and the f ugi
lives turned again eastward. They passed
into Georgia, through Washington, MilleJg'v
ville and Macon. Davis intended then to
reach the Florida coast and en'ape by boat if
possible. A reward of $100,000 was set upon
tuo Confederate president's head bj tho
United Stutes, because it was then believed
tbat he was implicated in the plot to assassi
nate President Lincoln. This was long since
disproved. During the flight through Georgia
one after another of the Confederate cabinet
dropped orat of the party and wont his way.
Only Postmaster General John H. Reagan re
mained. Mr. Reagan is now United States
senator from Texas.
CONFEDERATE GOLD AND SILVER.
Gen. Thomas was commander of tho mili
larv division of the Mississippi. He learned
the latter part of April that Mr. Davis had
started southward from Charlotte, 2T. C,
v. ith a large escort. Ho immediately directed
Sfoueman to send the brigades of Palmer,
Drown and Miller to scout down the Savan
nah river from Anderson, S. C, to Augusta,
Ga. At thesame time Wilson, at Macon, Ga.,
was ordered by Thomas to look out for Davis.
There were thus two cavalry commands hot
at the flying president's heels.
Djl is' last cabinet council wns held at Ab
beville, S. C. At that council were present 1

of the revolution
ary war, and .mid:iins- Jerson davis.
"Three thousand bravo men are enough for a
nucleus, around which the whole people will
rally when the panic which now afflicts them
has pass J away."
Then the ioufederate president asked for
suggestions for the future conduct of the
war. Not a word was spoken. Then for tho
Orsr time it swept over the mind of Davis
tu.it tho end hud indeed come. His face
n;rned the pallor of death. He arose and ex
claimed in bitter tones that all was indeed
-f. Then he walked away. As he did so

With Davis were his wife and family and
sister-in-law, Mis Ho wells. Five Confeder
ate brigade still accompanied them. Rather
strangely, too, the contents of the Confeder
al treasury, amounting to between $500,000
urn! $600,000 in coin, had been kept afely
with the fugitives through all their wander
ings. It had actually bean brought to Abbe

Basil UuEe says tee snare c-r Ms brigade was
divided between officers and men alike, and
that each received 32. All night long the
quartermasters of the live brigades remained
in a little cabin, counting out the silver.
Next day, at Washington, Basil Duke turned
the rest of the coin oer to the acting Con
federate States treasurer. What became of
it thereafter has never been fully explained.
Next morning, with an escort of twenty
picked men, under command of Capt. Given
Campbell, of Kentucky, Davis started with
his family towards the L'lorida coast Basil
I have nerer believed, hQrerer, that Sir. Davis
really meant or desired to wcapa after he became
convinced that all was lost. I am convinced that,
wearied by the importunity with which the re
quest was urged, he seemingly co Ksnted, intend
ing to put himself in the way of being captured.
Ho and his party were admirably mounted, and
could easily have outridden the pursuit of any
party they were not strong enough to fight.
CoL W. F. Palmer, of the Fifteenth Penn
sylvania cavalry, had command of the force
sent dv etoneman to intercept Davis. "Ihs
expedition reached the Savannah river in ad
vance of the Daviii party, but tho fugitives
managed to slip ptist Palmer's men only to
fall into tho hands of a force sent out by Wil
son. Lieut. Yeomn, of the First Ohio cav- j
ulry, and twenty picked men disguised them
selves as Confederate soldiers and scoured the i
country. Davis ciossed the Oconee at Dub
lin, only fifty-fivo miles from Macon, and '
then took the Jacksonville road. May 7 CoL I
Harndeu, cf tho First Wisconsin cavalrj',
heard of it and started in pursuit with 150 '
men. May S they rodo forty miles. May 9 i
they crossed the Ocmulgee and came to Ab
beville, Ga,, on the Ocmulgee. There they
learned that the Confederate president bad
passed that point at 1 o'clock in the morning '
on the road to Irwinsvillo. Riding hard
after, Harnden reached Irwinsville. Tho
Confederate party had gone into camp a mile
and a half from the town.
At Abbeville, however, Harnden had en
countered Lieut. Col. B. D. Pritchard, of the
Fourth Michigan cavalry, another detach
ment from Wilson's
command that was
scouring the coun
try for Davis.
Pritchard that he
was onyfhe track of
the game. During
the night Pritch
ard, with 123 men,
also rode to Irwins-
gij35jP ville, and it was
rrucnard s men
that surprised the
camp at daylight
May 10, 1805, and
captured what was left of the Confederacy.
It was a black man who guided Pritchard
to the Davis camp. They passed quickly and
fcilently through the pino woods, and came
upon the fugitives at 2 o'clock iu tho morn
ing, iu the darkness. Pritchard halted bo-
hind a hill and sent Lieut. Purinton with
twenty-five dismounted men to form a guard
all around tho camp, ready to close in on it
At dawn Purinton and his men dashed for
ward into tho camp. As they did so they
were suddenly fired on from outside. A lam
entable mistake had occurred. The day be
fore, at Abbeville, Col. Pritchard had in
formed Col. Harnden that he should remain
nt Abbeville that night. After tho departure
of Harnden on the track of Davis, however,
Pritchard seems to have changed his mind.
Remounting his men, they rode over a differ
ent route in the darkness, and reached Ir
winsvillo ahead of Harnden. At daybreak
Col. Harnden's force rode forward to capture
tho Davis camp. Seeing tho men of Purin-
ton's party, and mistaking them for Confed
erates in tho dim light, the Wisconsin soldiers
fired on their own comrades in arms, killing
two men and wounding an officer of the
Fourth Michigan. Tho firo was instantly re
turned, and three were severely wounded of
the First Wisconsin detachment.
At the first shot Pritchard, with the rest
of his command, rushed to the spo and joined
m the fight He it was who discovered the
mistake first and ordered the firing to cease.

THE CASEMATE TIUSON.
Col. Pritchard was informed by Lieut.
Dickinson that there wero ladies in tho tents.
Orders were then given that none of the men
should enter them. Permission was given for
tho women to go to the spring for water. In
u few minutes two persons "who looked like
women" camo out of one of the tents. One
was JefTerou Davis himself. He carried a
tin pail on hie arm.
WAS HE IN FEMALE ATTIRE?
The men who saw the, jiarty como out of
the tent were Lieut, Dicrinson, Corporal j
Munger and Privates U illiam B. Steaman, j
Andrew Bee, James Lynch and James Bui-
lard. Munger, Bullard and Bee made sworn
statements, which ore on Iilo in the war de
partment, that Davis w oro a woman's water
proof cloak or dress and a shawl over his
Confederate uniform. Mo j. Walthall, of the
Confederate army, sajs that as the president
was leaving the tent Mrs. Davis threw around
him a waterproof cloafc, or wrapper, and a

border, and he wore it around his head and

In a letter written to Crafts J. Wright in ;
, iS7T, TMvJs admits tbat he had on the cloak t
and shawl when captured, but says tan: Ad- J
jatant General Townsend could throw licht j
I on tnc shape of the .'.id cloak. It amounts to
i this: Davis certainly had a woman's shawl
I over his head and shoulders and a water '
, proof cloak upon his bodv. Whether it was :
a man's or 11 oman's cloak is not clear. Be-
ae&th the cloak his cavalry boots were seen, '
and this led to the suspicion that be was not
t woman. So thoo who captured him testify.
