Dr. Yiarkham's oration at the annual reunion of the Army of Tennessee. and also of many who heard of It, we have secured this eloquent tribute to the past from the gifted orator, and reprodune It In full. Unhappily It is Impos seble to reprodu(ce the spirited action, the musical volce, the flashing eye.and that sym tathetlo e'sonbls which earries away an adillennc. In answer to the toast. "TO THE ARMY OF TENNIwRsAE." Dr. Markham arose and said: Mr. IPresilent and Ct.lradtIe-Thro::gh four eventful years. years of suU and storm, its flag flun to the battll and the breeze, there lived and ruled and warred a nation, a Uon federacy. with its P'resident. its statesmen, its lI.ders ltie soldiers and its Veople-met who suffered and were strong,. and wot-unl who n.re stetadfast and tl up. who were its flower and crown. Tihit is history. That past le secure. And. as to-night it's memo, lee gather about our hearts and tremble on our lips. its aolhi:vetnleuts swell the souls, flre the hearts anid nerve the arms of freemten, and will, while trulh iand honor and nobleness have name ant urals among men. The famed leader who brought tthe remnant escaped hi om their burnett tlly. Iraversing sea and land and wantdering far antd long from Troy to Italy, began his recltal saying: "I sing of the arns and the men." With the warrant of lse example. In snswering to that tihat is set in t he toast to which I am appovintd te respond. I ,iotlre to speak of the arms anrl the oeIn (not of any one tuat ) whose Rtilltt and needs en noble and embalm our land "'thnt was." And as I speak of the times at d ihle men. It is not Ioy tlrtose to sound the prai ot of war. that dread dispenser of wath and death and w to I hate It in every throb of my heart and fibre of myh-ing--hate it because I have tried it, an have youl. and therefore apprehend it. Its fore front Is bright and fair anti gay. "The plumed troop, the neighitng steed. The shrill trulup the s.nlrlt-atht ring iir'm. The ear- piercing fife, the royal banner." Alt, these nuake up its "quality and pridelo and poInPl antid i cit lstanice.'" But belinnd all thlis back of "btttlen' magnifl entlly stein arrray ' are wounds and groana ont blood and death. And away from the Ifaal field are homes in wre k altd eyes that weepn and hearts that bi oak. Allh I nly for t.

I wts their nompanhon and friend,their tealher and counsellor, their help er and comforter Beslide them in battle I saw their courage put to the proof; with them in marches by day and night.

And the men of that army gathered for wor ship. listened to the truth and ronsrtnndaed to a preached gospel. Why, in a meetlong of thirty days. held near Atlanta. 140 men professed faith in Christ and entered the various churches I through the right hand of fellowshi, given to me, their chaplain. In that day difference in creeds was unuoted. Methodists, Baptist, ils- I copallans. Presbyterlans and Cathodic(. with and through these chaplains, holding brother hood aud communion.

In many a march and on many a flold did Ihene Confederate men stamp the seal of their soldierly worth. But among these the Vicks bturg siege, the Georgia retreat, tie Tennessee advance and return, these were the campaigns thatbest showed what manner of men they t were; of what stout stuff and noble strain.
