The Third regiment broke camp at
Lightwood Knot springs some time in
June, 1861, and went to Richmond, Va.,
by way of Sumter, Wilmington, Wel
don and Petersburg. We camped near
Holly Wood for a few days and then
went on Manassas. We marched at
night to Mitchell's ford on Bull run.
We camped at Bull run for a few days.
and then went to Ceiifreville and on to
Fairfax-.C. H. We relieved the 1st S.
C. regiment, who were No. 6 troops.
The 3rd regiment camped below Fair
fax on the Alexander road. The Sth
regiment at Germantown, and the 2nd
and 7th regiments around the court
house. The four regiments formed the
1st brigade- of the army or Northern
Virginia, and were placed in charge of
M. L. Bonham, who was appointed bri
gadier general. There were no other
troops at or around Fairfax C. H. ex
cept Kebper's batery of artilery and
the famous Black Horse cavalry. The
3rd regiment picketed on the Alexan
der road and the other regiments on
different roads. We drilled daily and
kept up a strict guard. On the morn
ing of the 17th of July, 1861, the long
roll was sounded. Our baggage was
loaded on the wagons and sent to the
rear. The regiment was formed at
the breast works and our guns were
loaded. Col. Williams made us a
speech. We could not see any Federal
troops in our front, but to the left of
our regiment towards Flint Hill we
could see the line Of battle, of the
Federa.ls marching toward German
town to cut us off from Centreville.
Our regiment marched by the left
in front, passed through Fairfax C. H.,
toward Germantown. The 7th and 2nd
prededed us.- Na passed through Ger
-mantown. The 8th regiment was hold
ing the line at that place until we
could g4t through. Here occurred
one of the strange things of the war.
The 8th held the line until the Fed
erals were nearly on them. Not a
gun was fired by either army. The
8th was ordered to' retire which they
did orderly. The 3rd regiment waited
until 'the 8th regiment had passed
them. Then the 3rd regiment brought
up the rear to Centreville. That night
the brigade moved back to 'Buli Run
and took position at -MNitchell's fo'rd.
Kemper's battery was placed across
Bull Run and when the Federals ad
vanced they opened fire on them. This
checked the advance and the battery
retired across Bull Run. Later in the
day (July 18) the Federals attacked
Longstreet's troops lower down Bull
Aun and were repulsed. Our line at
Mitchell's lord was shelled by the
Federal cannon, but they shot too high
and uone of our troops were wounded.
Our brigade having occupied the front,
were given the centre of the line and
We were very anxious for the Federals
to attack us. We had a splendid posi
tion and good rifle pits, but we were
disappointed. Sunday morning, July
21, 1861, the battle began up the run
to our left. Late in the afternoon the
7th and 8th regiments were carried to
the field and gaves a good account of
themselves. When the route of Feder
als began the 3d and 7th regiments
were carried across Bull Run and
placed in line of battle facing Centre-.
viIle, and could see the Federals run
.ning towards Centreville, but we were
not allowed to advance, but kept in our
place. -And the result was- that Gen.
Bonham was not made major genera?
and Col. Williams failed to be a bri
gadier general. General Earl Van
Dorn ,was made a major general and
placed over us. Bonham's brigade:
was the 1st brigade at the front, and
we became the 1st brigaue of the 1st
division of the 1st corps of the army!
of Northern Virginia.

men -from Tennessee, Mississippi,
Florida, Georgia and North and South
Carolina, with 2,000 regulars, will en-.
gage in mimic warfare. The battles
-of the civil war which made this sec-:
tion historic will be fought over, and,'
'while the fighting will be bloodlesa,
it will lose none of its spectacular
f?eatures. A new feature which is
tsure to attract many to the maneuv
ers will be the use of the war -aero

to get valuable information as to the
*usefulness of air fighting craft dur
.ing these maneuvers.
In order to enable their patrons
-from all over the South to witness
these most thrilling sights, the rail

CONGRESS HAS ADJORUNED BE
THE RECORD HAS NOT.
Speeches and Other Documents Prin
ing to be Sent Out Under Frank as
Washington, July 1.-The congre
sional Record is still appearing. a
though the congress itself has at
adjourned for a week. Many membe:
of both house and senate, in the clo
ing days of the session, when it w,
too hot to make speeches or to list(
to them, asked "leave to print." The
members have been preparing the
ebullition in the comfort of the big c
fices furnished them by the govzr:
ment, with their electric fans and the
ice-water and other hot weather co:
veniences at hand, and they appear
the Congressional Record, just as
the sentiments had been delivered
the floor during the session.
In The Record for June 29, for i:
stance-four days after the adjour
ment of congress-there appears
the first page a "speech" of Hen:
Sherman Boutell of Illinois, "in t]
house of representatives, Saturda
June 25, 1910." The subject of tb
particular speech is "Legislation E
acted by the . Sixty-first Congresz
Of course it is simply a campaign d
cument, and consists, safter a few i
troductory remarks, of a list, thr
columns in length, reciting the titl
of "important public laws passed" I
the Sixty-first congress. First ai
foremost is the Payne tariff act. T]
railroad law which was -insisted-up4
by the president, the statehood at
the postal savings bank act, and
number of others are listed, The id
is to have the speech printed
pamphlet form, so that it can be se
out from one -end of the country to t]
other under frank-that is, at the e
pense of the people who pay the tax
-to' "educate" the people to belie
that the Republican party is the
Trying to Make Totes.
It is interesting to note, in this co:
nection, that the list of "importa:
public laws" given by Henry Sherms
Boutell of Illinois, includes a joi:
resolution, which in effect provid,
for the "marking of the graves of ti
soldiers and sailors of the Confedera
army and navy who died in Northe:
prisons and were buried near the pri
ons where they died."- The list al:
includes a "joint resolution authori
ing the secretary of war to loan ce
tain tents for the use .of the Confe'
erate veterans reunion, to be held
Mobile, Ala., in April, 1910." These ar
as stated, joint resolutions, and n
"important public laws." But the fa,
that the Henry Sherman Boutell ses
fit to "feature" them in a Republics
campaign document would indica
that somewhere, somehow, the Col
federate soldier is wanted to suppo
the Republican party.
Another "important public law"
the joint resolution proposing an 1l
come tax amendment to the constiti
tion of the United States. It is we
known that the "proposed income ta
amendment" is not going to be adop

t, HOW SENATOR DANIEL
a. HAPPENED TO BE AUTHOR
Anecdotes About His Celebrated Work
on Negotiable Instruments and
Why He Wrote It.
iri Washington, July 2.-The death of
Senator John Warwick Daniel recalls
the fact that Chas. A. Douglass, of
Winnsboro, S. C., now of the Washing
aton bar, is the editor of an edition of
"Daniel on Negotiable Instruments,"
perhaps the greatest work on the law
of bills and notes ever wgitten in the
English language. Mr. Douglas' worik
is popularly known as "Douglas on
n Daniel," which means that' an 'edition
of Daniel's work was prepared by
Douglas, -with added -cases and edi
torial notes. Mr. Douglas lectures on
rthis subject in the law school of the
Georgetown university, in this city.
tThe story is told, and Mr. Douglas
himself tells it, that the writing by
>Senator Daniel of this famous work
twas more or less accidental. It is said
that young Daniel at the University of
Virginia, got along pretty well in most
of the branches of th,e law, but that on
1the subject of negotiable paper, he ac
Stually failed in his examination. This
fact determined him to master the sub
ject, after he should leave college. Aft
ser finally "cramming" sufficiently to
get past his examinations, and get a
sheepskin from the university, the
young lawyer began a systematic
study of cheeks, bills, drafts, notes,
etc., one of the most technical and
complicated subjects of, the law. He
made numerous 'notes, in aid of his
memory and perception. Later the
idea -of rearranging his notes and pub
*lishing them entered his mind, and he
decided to undertake the task. The
publication of the book attracted at
tention from the legal profession on
both sides of the Atlantic, and it is
anow stated that "Daniel on Negotiable
;Instruments" is the premier work on
Another story is told of the writi g
of the book by "Law Notes," a monthly.I
* professional magazine. This s'tory is
"As every lawyer knows, or, at least,
ought to know, Senator'Daniel, of Vir
1 ginia, is the author of a standard work
on negotiable instruments, which, by:
e the way, is charM6teised by about
motelegant literai-y style to be found
law book. On one occasion a friend
inquired of the senator how he came
to write the bookr. 'weln:.h-e rer
'it was this way. Somebody asked me
whether a sight draft bore interest,
d and I couldn't tell him. I was so
e ashamed of my ignorance that I deter
emined to master the question at once,
1and from my study on this point I got
the idea of writing a book on the sub
ject.' "Well, senator,' asked the friend,
'does a sight draft bear interest?"
Senator Daniel reflected for some mo
Iments and then replied, 'Blamed if I:
