GEN. WHEELER'S CAREER.
Joseph Wheeler, soldier, born in
Augusta, Ga., Sept. 10,1836. He was
graduated at the United States Mili
tary academy in 1859 and assigned to
the dragoons. After a year's service
at the cavalry school for practice at
Carlisle, Pa., he received the full rank
of second lieutenant, but on April 22,
1861, resigned and entered the. Con
federate army. He was made oolonel
of the Nineteenth Alabama infantry
on Sept. 4, 1861, and served princi
pally In the West.
At Shlloh he commanded a brigade
and covered the Confederate retreat
from the field. In July, 1862, he was
transferred to a cavalry command and
engaged in raiding Western Tennessee
During the Kentucky campaign of
that year he had charge of Gen. Brax
ton Bregg's cavalry and fought at
Green Elver and Perryville. He com
manded the rear guard of the Confed
erate army when it retreated into
Tennessee and on October 30, 1862,
was promoted to brigadier general. At
Murfreesboro he was in charge of the
cavalry, and thereafter he was contln
uously active in contesting Gen. Wil
11am S. Rosecrans' advance, also at
taching his hanks, raiding in the rear
and destroying his trains. Oa Janu
ary 19, 1863, he received his'commis
sion as major general and opposed the
Union advance at Chattanooga. He
commanded the cavalry at Cnicka
mauga and after the battle crossed
Tennessee river and fell upon Rose
cranB' line! of communications, defeat
ing the foroe that was sent against
him and destroying over 1,200 wagons
with stores. On this raid he succeeded
in damaging federal property to the
value of 83,00J,000, but, after losing
600 men, was driven back to .oothern
Alabama. Subsequently he took part
in the siege of Kaoxvllle and covered
Bragg's retreau from Lincoln Ridge
and Lookout Mountain.
During the winter and spring he
coninually harassed the Union trrops,
and, on the advance of Gen. William
T. Sherman's army toward Atlanta,
he opposed every movement and fought
almost daily, often with his men dis
mounted. July 27-30 he f >ught the
raiding f^rce cf Gen. Gao. Stoneman,
General Kanner Gerard and Gen. Ei
ward M. McCook, and captured many
prisoners, including Gen. Stoneman
and all the artillery and transporta
tion. On Aug. 9, 1864, he was sent by
Gen. John D. Hood to capture the na
tional supplies, burn bridges and
break up railways in the rear of Gen.
Sherman's army. Passing through
northern Georgia, he went into east
ern Tennessee as far as the Kentucky
line, and thence through middle Ten
nessee back into northern Alabama.
During this raid, which lasted one
month, he was continuously engaged
and ruined much property. He was
unsuccessful in destroying Sherman's
communications, and was finally 1 riv
en back by the national cavalry. When

convinced of the impossibility of ar

The girl wife of Frank V. Wilson,

Holmes, in the superior criminal
court, at Boston, Mass., for snatching
a handbag from Anna Goldman on

The case had a sad domestic phrase.
The young couple were married in the
provinces, where Wilson was employ

told of a former convlotlon for bur

years at Thomaston Me., and how be

three to five years, with one day lc
