"No, sir, I was not with 'Mr. L)avis
at Montgomery this week to hear him
pronounce what you are pleased to call
the funeral oraticn of the Confederacy.
I was there with him twenty-ive yeatrs
ago and heard him miake a pecch

aids on that occasion, and represented
The speaker, chatting with a group
of Iis ir-ieuds. in the parlor of the
National Hotel, was Col. Henry D.
Capers, of Georgia. 1He has been here
for several months and his erect tigure
and gallant bearing are munch re

babyhood of that short-lived Govern
ment are an interesting volume. The
bitterest Northerner cannot begrudge
the pathos in the spectacle of Jefferson
Davis, a solitary old man, grey and
feeble, standing up to speak in the
memorial service of the rebellion,
upon the steps of the very Capitol
where he first stood forth its chief, in
the prime of his manly strength and
the first tush of its hopes, on the 18th
February, V 61. ilow many he must
miss of the higi-hearted, hot-blooded
Southern chivalry who stood proudly
around him that day'
The 18th of February, 186I, was a
beautiful Southern day, says Col.
Capers. The sun beamed down on
the natal occasion like a happy father,
and a soft -southwest wind was lifting
the leaves of the magnolia that twined
with the laurel in many a iarge festoon
about the Corinthian columns of the
capitol. An immense concourse of
people gathered to the inauguration,
but so solemn were the ceremonies
and so earnest were the people, that
Col. Capers, sitting on horseback in
the outskirts of the throng, heard dis
tinctly every word of the eloquent
opening prayer of Dr. Manly. The
venerable divine and Vice-President
elect Stephens rode in the carriage
with 31r. Davis, and Howell Cobb,
president of the convention. admi nis
tered the oath of office. Mr. Davis
spoke his inaugural quietly, but dis
tinctly, and upon taking the oath
raised his eves towards heaven and
repeated the concluding words, "So
help me God," in a tone so strong and
clear that they could be heard by
every one prezeit. There was a re
ception that night and a brilliant ball.
C..G. Meniinger, of South Carolina,
was appointed secretary of the treasu
ry, and otn the 20th Col. Capers, whom
he selected as his private secretary,
opened their office in the Commercial
building. The accomniodations were
limited, but convenient. There was a
banking office on the ground floor.
The State, treasury, war, navy and
law departments of the new govern
ment settled down in the twelve roous
on the second story, none of then very
large. Young Capers took posses:sioni
of their office, swept out the cobwebs
and dust himself, got in a few articles
of furnitur-e, tacked a card on the
door, hir-ed an ofiee boy an~d waited
two whole days befor-e anybody came
to do business.
Then came a tall, soldierly-lotoking
man wvitt: anl eager siep and the anis
takable air of business. He wanted to
see the secretary at on~ce upoa an im
portant umitter. Ile handed the yotog
private secretar-y an oiticial note anid
"I am Capt. Deas, sir, lt ut tile
United Strates at-mv. I have been in
structed by P'resident D~avi,, who'se
note I hand vou, to pr-ovide rations
and blankets for- one hunidred men
who have r-epoirted to him for duty in
the army. I want :he money, sir-, to
car-ry out the otrder- of tihe President."
Col. Capers :asured the Captain thrat
he was both willinga and ~mtious the
men should lie tilledi and covered, but
he. added, shaking out a pur-se that
contained somtething le-s than $5:
"I1 have been on conisideirablc of a
frolic tor the last two weeks in Mo0nt
gomery, and my itances are at this
moment pretty low. This is all the
money I am able to voutch for as being
in the treasury depattment of the
Confeder-ate States at this time."'
Patriotism couldn't be allowed to go
anfed and unblanketed, however, and
after some delay the money was i-aised
on the pi-ivarte credit of 3Mr. 3Mem
minger-. The soldiers thus equipped
were a company of Gecorgiarns, corm
manded by Capt. G$eorge Washinigton
Lee. They werec the iirst body of
troops enlisted by, the Confedleracy.
When their provisional Congress
provided for a ioanr of $15,0,000,~ "to
meet the emerencies of Government,"
they -thereby pr-ovided another emere
gency. The G ovei-nmerit had Ino p~ petr
to print their bonrds, ecrtitieates and
noes upon. They managed to get the
chief ingrediet~ of papfler money ciredit
very well, but stuck 1ast a whije for
lack of what is usually com p~arativecly
valueless. The paper mills of the
South made oiny the or-dinary niews
paper and the common wrapping
paper of tae shops. Trhe liner mnana
ictories of the country lay north of
the line of separation. G. B. Lamar-,
president of the Bank of the Republic,
in New York, aictitng as agent for the
Confederate G.overnmnen t, ai-ianged to
have the work done by the Amet-icatn
Bank Note Company, but when the
bonds and totes werec all handsomely
printed and ready to be shipped the
secret service officers of the National
Government swoop~ed down~ and con
fiscated the whole batch. The dlifli
mity of finidiing paper and engravers
was not solved until after the removal
f the Goverrnmetnt from 31ontgomery
o Richmond. The Rtichmtoind paper
mills werec tinalvy able to furnish a sot
>f bank-niote paer but the fit-st issueO
was pr-imed by a litrm of Giertman
ngravers ini Richmiond on paper
muggled thr-ough the lines from Bal
timore. The Iir-t pr oof-shreet, of eight
me-hundr-ed dollar bills, was fr
from handsome, but they wet-e itn a
rry and. th1ey approved it. It is now
in the poses-ioni of Col. Capers, and(
bears upon the back of it this inrscr ip
tion, made at the Lhee, in the hand
writing of $ecretary 1e M ng ner:

But vhen she was ready to sail and
her register made out, it was discov
ered at the last Moment that the
treasury department of the Confederate
States had no seal. There wasn't an
engraver to be fouid in Montgomery,
and Semmes was impatient to get his
papers and be off. So he and Col.
Capers, aided by a handy young army
surgeon, and at the expense ot two or
three ponknive, carved a rude seal
upon a piece of boxwood, which met
the immediate need. Seinies got his
register, and the Santer set sail under
the Stars and Bars. There was quite a
timne over the adoption of that flag. A
considerable number were in favor of
sticking to the old flag, with slight
Ioditications, but Mr. Miles, of South
Carolina, chairman of the Congres
sional fag committee, argued at length
in his report against this sentimental
idea, and added, by way way of a
clincher, that Liberia and the Sandwich
Islands had flags verv similar to ours,
and the committee was not disposed,
therefore, if for no other reason, "to
keep, copy or imitate it. They have
1o inclination to borrow second-hand
what has already been pilfered or
appropriated by a free negro com
munity and a race of savages."
