The character of free ad
vertising Memphis has re
ceived lately is not very de
sirable. Memphis people are
all right, but Memphis pol
itics seem to be all wrong.
Not until the better element
becomes interested in elec
tions, will the evil be reme
died. Chairman Frank Thomp
son issued the following call
Tuesday: "The State Dem
ocratic Committee is herein1
called to meet at the Tulane
Hotel on Thursday, February
4th, at 10 o'clock a.m., for
the purpose of calling a state
convention and to consider
such other matters as may be
brought before it."
of Tennessee, republican, has
introduced a bill in Congress
appropriating 24,000,000 as
national aid for the building
of wagon roads, to be dis
tributed according to the
population of each state. If
the bill becomes a law, Ten
nessee will receive 585,000.
Brownlow. like the balance
of the republicans with whom
he trails, believes in high
taxes and extravagant expen
ditures, both of which are
antagonistic to democratic
doctrine. No question but
what we need good roads,
better roads, but they should
be constructed by the people
who travel them, who are
benefited by them.
JZachary. Taylor's Tomb s Sadly
"Z.Taylor. Died 1850."
That is the inscription on the
tomb of Zachary Taylor, twelfth
President of the United States, says
the Cleveland Press. A correspond
ent who recently visited the tomb of
"Old Rough and Ready," says for
over half a century it has lacked the
care of a kindly hand and is fast
falling into decay.
Apparently nobody cares.
The tomb lies five miles from
Louisville and is off the road. Ivy
riots over the weatherbeaten blocks
of granite The fastenings on the
door are red with rust. So far as is
known, no key has turned the lock
in fifty years. Visitors are rare. It
is doubtful if half a dozen tourists
visit the tomb during a twelve
month. And this neglected spot is the
last resting place of the hero of the
Black Hawk and Florida wars.
Here is the dust of that great sol
dier who, with 4,000 American
riflemen, drove in retreat 20,000
Mexicans under SantaAnna atBeuna
Vista. Here are the remains of the
American Cortez and President of
the United States. He who con
quered the swamps and everglades
of Florida and made Mexico sur
render is forgotten by his country
men. Not one in 10,000 knows the
place of his sepulcher.
The plaintive words of Rip Van
Winkle are appropriate: "How

Rev. Francis J. Mullally.
New York, Jan. 19. The Rev.
Francis J. Mullally, D. D., a Pres
byterian divine, widely known in
the South and West, is dead at his
home in this city, aged 73. In
Ireland, when a lad of 15, he was
secretary to Smith O'Brien, leader
of the young Ireland movement. He
came to America in 1849 and set
tled in Georgia, where he entered
the ministry and eventually became
pastor of the First Presbyterian
church of Columbia, S. C. He
served through the war as chaplain
of Orr's rifles in McCowan's brigade
and was repeatedly promoted for
gallantry in action. At the end of
the war he had the rank of colonel
and a reputation as a chaplain who
fought as hard as he prayed. After
the war Dr. Mullally filled pulpits
in Bolivar, Tenn., end for a time
was president of Adger College in
BATTLE OF COLD HARBOR, VA.
(Writtex fok rat Bolivar Bcliehs)
Reminiscences of the campaign of 1864-5 of Gen.
R. E. Lee's army as remembered by the under
signed. You may think the account
of the battle of Cold Harbor
has been indefinitely defer
red; but you must bear in
mind that winter is upon us,
and the Christmas festivities,
with visitors from a distance,
famity reunions, hog-killing
and other social enjoyments
have had the precedence
and as a matter of course,
the horrors of war had neces
sarily to take the background.
Well, Generals Lee and
(jrrant, alter maneuvering:
for some time, settled on the
same ground that had been
made memorable by the bat
tle between Lee and Mc-
Ulellan two years previous.
The positions of the armies,
however, were changed, Gen.
Lee now holding almost the
same line held by Gen. Mc
Clellan in 1802, and Gen.
Grant holds the old Confed
erate lines. The Federals
are this time attacking and
the Confederates defending:
the Cold Harbor ridge. B
the evening of the 2nd of
June, everything seemed to
be in readiness for the bloody
conflict. There was much to
inspire both armies in the
At half past four o'clock
on Thursday morning, June
3, 1864, just as the breaking
day gave light enough to
guide the troops, the battle
beg;an. The attack was made
simultaneously along the
entire line. Hancock, "The
Superb," made a desperate
rush ag-ainst the works held
by Gen. Breckinridge's com
mand on the extreme right
of the Confederate lines, and
succeeded in driving: the
troops from their works and
taking possession of three
guns of Reid's battery, which
were at once turned upon
the Confederates. Instantly
Breckenridge s men- ralliec
on Gen. Finnegran's Florida
brigade (a portion of the di
Vision to which 1 belonged)
which dashed forward with a
terrific yell. A fierce strug
efle took place in the works
and Gen. Hancock was driv
en back and our line was es
tablished. But Hancock was
not the man to be discourag
ed at trifies. He made re
peated attempts in as many
as seven distinct charges to
carry Gen. Anderson's
works, but every "time he was
driven back with fearful loss
Attacks were made on every
portion of our lines, and al
were renulsed with heavv
loss. The battle ended be
tween 11 and 12 o'clock
Every attack of the enemy
had been successfully repel 1
ed, and the fight closed with
the Confederates in full pos
session of their works. Ou
loss was light, something un
der 1,200 men, while on the
side of the Federals the losses
were reported to be abou
13,000. After the firing had
ceased and the smoke clearet
away, we could look over the
field in front of our works
and as far as the eye could
see the ground was literally
covered with blue coats.
About a year after the
close of the war, I was trav
eling on tne railroad, ana in
conversation with a fellow
passenger, I remarked that I
was in Gen. Lee s army du
ring the war. He then ask
ed me it I were in the second
battle of Cold Harbor, when
I told him I was. He began
at once to abuse Gen. Grant.
He said he belonged to a
regiment of recruits, that had
just landed in camps the ev-
the light had
drilled an hour; but
they were put into line the
next morning, followed by
trained troops, and were driv
en into the hottest of the
fight and kept there until the
battle closed. Lie said they
went into the fight 1100
strong, and only 200 got out.
I told the man that Gen.
Grant expected to have more
hard fighting to do, and he
wanted to save his trained
men for a hotter place. The
fellow said he did not know
where he would go to find
anything worse. I
the man was like
hat is, he found as nHich
militaryT glory as he wanted
n the first fight.
The Federals commenced
browing up fortifications at
once and left their dead and
wounded on the field until
he morning of the 5th of
June, when Gen. Grant sent
n a flag of truce to care for
his wounded and dead. Gen.
Lee replied that none of his
wounded or dead were an-
cared for or unburied. But
ic permitted Gen. Grant to
care for his. The battle of
Cold Harbor was decisive
it closed the over-land cam
paign, and left Gen. Grant
again foiled in his effort ,to
get between Gen. Lee and
From the 3rd of May until
the 3rd of June, three decis
ive battles had been fought
and the losses in the cam
paign were very great. The
Confederate loss was 'about
18,000 men, while the Fed
erals' loss was estimated at
60,000 men, more than 10,-
000 above the total strength
of Lee's army. Yet, in the
face of all this, many writers
on the northern side are in
the habit of describing: the
campaign as a complete vie
tory for them. All 1 have to
say is that a few more such
successes would have made
them weak in the knees and
ehrunken in the belt.
In my next, I will tell you
something about the siege of
Petersburg and the retreat to

Shetland Ponies on

ing the eailier years runs wild, 6ay
the Illustrated Sporting News. Bu
he is easily reformed and speedily
abandons his wild and odd ways aii(
becomes a devoted friend ot man
and an admirable worker. So great
is their affection for the ponies that
the islanders never kill them, bu
when they are too old for work they
allow them to return to the fields
and bills aud live out the rest o!
their days in peace. Sometime
the old animals, in their wandering"
for food, will fall over thecliff- ani
so perish. They still reach the agr
of 30 years or more in their native
land, and there is a caeon record
but it is apocryphal of a Sheltie
which lived to be 100 years old.
Like every other good thing for
which a demand has arisen, the
prices of Shelties have increased in
lecent years. There has been for a
considerable period a large export
trade in the ponies, of which there
were at one time 10,000 in the is
lands, but, according to Govern
ment returns, the number is now
about half. In the eighteenth cen
tury it was possible to obtain a
good Shultie for 50 shillings (about
$12), and the average price in 1809
was $3 more. Half a century ago
a pony could be bought for from $7
to $30, but in 1871 males ranged
$40 to f'50, the mares bringing only
half that sura, as they were not suit
able for pit work, for which the
Shelties were mostly needed. Since
then prices have greatly advanced,
and large sums are obtained for
choice specimens of the pony, es
pecially when they are wanted for
children's use." A yearJing will now
command from 850 upward.
The Sheltie cannot e worked
un'.il it is 3 or 4 years old, and does
not reach maturity until it is aged
8 or 9 years.
