one of the most correct, chaste and pow

that has appeared iu our country, North

people, and the American people at large,
are beginning to count her as a pillar in

the impersonation of Southern female

is it illustrated in the volume before us.

The accomplished authoress is one p

Ala. The story of Cameron Hall, the
scpne opening in Virginia, its character
tossed bpre and there oivfhenea ol stnle,
was completed several months before the

heart in tho hour of its extremity, and
the sacrifices and sufferings which then
prevailed as tho rulo throughout that
devoted land, It is published, after ttie1
issue of the terrible contest, as it wis
oriziuallv written. Its claim to truth.
rather than to fiction, is just, and will fie
recognized and appreciated by almost

transmitted a number of official documents
touching Mexican affairs. The first of these
is the protest of Gen. Of tegaagainshis'ar-
rest, which has heretofore been published.
In transmitting thfe protcst,'Gen. Sheridan
assigned his reasons for ordering the arrest
of Ortega. He says so long as he was mere

sion among his, own people, while sojourn
ing in this country, there was no violation
of our neutrality laws, bnt when he went
further, and formed combinations and an-
Sealed to arms to assert his cLiims as Presi
ent of Mexico, this was a palpable viola

considered it his duty to interfere. Ho took
the precaution to warn Ortega against the
prosecution of his designs, which he. dis-
carded,-! and as he was aatufiedthat Ortega
was abont to cross tho frontier. Gen. Sheri
