and French people. He begs Gladstone, in

The last day of the great Morgan Reunion
dawned auspiciously, and the booming of
the morning guns soon gathered the veterans
to the velvety sward of Woodland
Park, to participate in the last day's exercises
of the Reunion, and, withal, the best
of all. Although it was the last day, many
members of the command reached the city
for the first time and were enrolled, and
those who had been presentfrom the beginning
were apparently as fresh and eager as
at first ' There was a verv larere crowd of
visitors gathered to witness the exercises, r
which began at ten o'cloclr.
Capt. L. Hathaway led off in an address
in behalf of the Confederate Soldiers!
Home at Georgetown, a noble institution,
which was founded through the. philanthropic
efforts of Mrs. Virginia Hanson,
widow of that gallant soldier, Gen. Roger
Hanson, who sleeps in the Lexington
Cemetery. The Soldiers' Home is sus
tained by private subscription, and we
have no doubt that Captain Hathaway's
earnest appeal in its behalf will result in
quite an addition to its exchequer.
Col. J. W. Bowles then read a splendid
poem on "Robert E. Lee," prepared expressly
for the occasion. It was a fine effort
and was received with great applause.
Private C. Black, of Augusta, Ga., was
then introduced to the audience and made
a stirring address, which "the boys" applauded
to uhe echo. At the conclusion
of his remarks he turned to Miss John H.
Morgan, who was seated upon the stand,
and in behalf of Morgan's men presented
to her an elegant gold watch, which they
had all bought for her by a general subscription
as a token of their love and esteem
for her as well as for the memory of
their gallant leader, her father. Miss
Morgan responded gracefully, although
her voi.ee was choked with tears and tremulous
with pride and emotion. She said:
"I can not begin to tell you how grateful
I am to you all for your beautiful gift. I
love all my father's brave soldiers, and I
shall always keep and cherish your beautiful
souvenir in the spirit in which it was
given, and I only hope that you may all be
always as happy as you have made me today."
The cheers that rent the air when she quit
speaking seemed to make the very trees
tremble. The veterans all love her as they
do their own children, and even now she is
called by many of them " the daughter of
In response to loud calls Col W. C. P.
Breckinridge came forward and for at least
an hour spoke in his inimitable style, holding
the audience spellbound with the magic
of his silvery tongue. He related incidents
of soldier days, and paid glowing tributes
to the gallantry and valor of Morgan and
Hanson. He then, in behalf of the members
of Morgan's command who had been prisoners
of war in Camp Chase, presented to
Capt. David Tiffany, of Columbus, Ohio,
a gold-headed cane in token of the gratitude
they felt for the kindness
he had shown them when he
was postmaster of the prison,
Judge C. W. West of Cynthiana
responded eloquently and fittingly
in behalf of Capt. Tiffany, but in response
to repeated calls for him Capt. Tiffany himself
came forward and, although "not a
speaking man," returned his grateful
thanks to the men for their beautiful present
and for the great kindness and consideration
with which he had been treated
by Morgan's men since ho had been attending
their reunion as an invited guest.
He related a few prison incidents and then
said: "In conclusion (for if I attempt to go
on I shall break down with emotion) I want
to say that when I go back to my people I
shall tell them of your gallantry, your generosity,
and your magnanimity, and I shall
say to all that if there is a people anywhere
whom God should take to his own
bosom, it is the people of this section of

The boys have fired and are now falling
It was a very hard matter to get a complete
list of Morgan's men in attendance.
The boys had a good time, and if they
live they will all be back at the next Reunion.
The proposition to erect monuments to
Morgan and Hanson struck a responsive
chord in .the hearts of all.
A movement to erect a monument to the
private soldiers of Morgan's command who
"fell on the field of glory" is taking shape.
Col. L. D. Baldwin, of Nicholasville, is
collecting material for a Regimental history
of the Seventh (Chenault's) Regiment.
It is universally remarked that during
the whole of the Reunion exercises not a
word or a sentiment was uttered which
could give offense to any.
The Executive Committee will be called

place of holding the next annual Reunion.
Winchester and Richmond both want it.

years of age, attended the Reunion.

Mrs. Virginia Ecton, of Winchester, attended
the Reunion. During the war,
when she was Miss Virginia Jackson,
she was one of the managers in Central
Kentucky of the underground line by
which recruits, letters, etc., were smuggled
through the lines to Dixie. She was arrested
by Burbridge's order and confined in
prison for a long time.

Note. The Seventh and Eighth Regiments
are the only ones of which anything
like a thorough and regular roll have been
made. The rolls of the other regiments are
not separate, but are mixed up promiscuously,
and it will require several days to
put them in order. In the above roils the
postoffices mentioned are all in Kentucky,
except where otherwise stated.
Eighty thousand Americans annually
visit Europe. Of this number 50,000
sail from the port of New York. They
spend upon an average while abroad
$2,500 apiece. The greater number are
ladies. Such is the statement -made by
a Broadway traveling commission firm
to a journalist. The importance of these
annual pilgrimages, which are increasing
year by year, has developed a system
of ocean etiquette that governs the
conduct of what may be termed the best
circles of "maratime society." Nowa-lays
the captain of a crack oct an steamer
must not only be a sailor,
out he must also be a man of infinite
tact and method, with a thorough
of what "society" requires at his
To sit at the "right of the captain" at
inble at once accords to the occupants of
that distinguished honor the highest
place in the social scale on board ship,
md the position is competed for with an
amount of anxiety that is very amusing.
The senior surgeon and his
when two are can ied) act as deputies,

the captain himself. How to accommodate
the various claims for this coveted
distinction is a matter of serious moment.
The personnel of the passenger-list
is closely searched at least forty-eight
hours before the vessel sails. "Very
Dften the is called into consultation,
and the difficulty is finally settled
by placing a card bearing the passenger's
name upon his or her plate. From
this decision there is no appeal. It frequently
happens, however, that one or
more persons may consider th- mselves
slighted, and where it is probable that
the imaginary slight will disturb the social
harmony the captain escapes by taking
his meals in his own room.
The First Mormon Marriage.
The first "celestial marriage" occurred
by stealth, on the batiks of the
Mississippi, near Nauvoo, 111. Joseph
Smith " sealed " to James Noble a second
wife. Noble's first wife soon died of broken
heart, and the second wife went insane
and also di. d. When Smith mar-'
ried Noble, the latter aiso married Smith
to a second Wife. The first Mrs. Smith
clung to the prophet until a mob killed
him, and then married a Gentile, and at
last accounts was still living at Nauvoo.
In defiance of poh gamy the examples of
Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Moses, Joshua,
David and S lomon are cited. In corroboration
of the "Book of Mormon"
we are pointed to the burned cities of
PalenvueandUxmal, in Central America;
to the mounds in tne Mississippi valley,
and to other well known vestiges of a prehistoric
race. When a good Mormon
dies who " has lived up to his religion,"
and has had a dozen or two wives and
fifty or sixty children, he does not become
a mere angel, like an ordianary
Christian he becomes a god, with a
world of his own to reign over. A Mor-man
wife who opposes the polygamous
marriage of her husband goes to hell
and is "destroyed." A Mormon who
obeys the mandates of the church in
most respects, but neglects to "go into
polygamy," becomes a mere angel,
wio must be a kind of celestial servant
to the gods and other angels. B,is wife
must share the same humiliating fate.
The doctrine of " blood atonement " is
simply this : If an apostate's throat is
cut, the spilling of his blood upon the
ground will save hi3 soul. If he is left
to die a natural death his soul will go to
hejl. A great many apostate souls have
been saved in Utah. This, in substance,
is the Mormon religion.
The Great Empire of Brazil.
A glance at the map will show how
large a portion of the earth's surface is
covered by the territory over which the
good Dom Pedro rules as Emperor.
The greatest river and some of he
highest mountains on the globe, as well
as vastest pampas or plains, are embraced
within the limits of this enormous
country. As yet, however, it is
but thinly populated, having only 12,-000.000
inhabitants, who occupy for the
most part only a fringe of territory
along the sea coast. Its backwardness
in 'this is due to its limited railway
system The United States has
nearly 120,000 miles of railway; in Brazil
there are only 426 mi'es of completed
railroad, but these have paid so well
tfeat English capital has been attracted,
and the next few years will see many-thousands
of miles of new railroads
opening up fertile regions of immense
extent to European emigrants. Eight
new companies have been formed in
London, and when their work is complete,
nearly a million square miles of
productive country will be brought in
direct relation to the Atlantic seaboard
and to the markets of the world. The
last of the cheap lands are rapidly being
taken up in this country, but when the
soil baB been absorbed here we may expect
the tide of emigration from the Old
World heading for the South American
coast. It will take a century at least, to
exhaust the available land of the South
