Porter Alex ander, who spoke on "The Confederate V eteran" at West Point, on the 9th inst,, was liberally applauded by me large crowd of officers and graduates at the centennial celebration there. He said: "The Confederate army, which sprang into existence almost out of space and nothingness, and after a ca reer of four years, unstained by treas ury and arsenal, but unsurpassed for brilliant fighting and lavish outpour of blood, vanished from the earth as utterly as if it had been a phantom of imagination. "It had followed as a banner, a starry cross borne in the fire and smoke of its battle line, which had flown over its charging columns on many fields and under many leaders whose names proud history will forever cherish, and | then in a night it also had taken its flight from earth, to be seen no more | of men. "A Federal historian wrote of this J army:' Who can forget it that once looked upon it—that array of tattered uniforms and bright muskets, that body of incomparable infantry, the Army of Northern Virginia, which for four years carried the revolt on its bayonets, opposing a constant front to the mighty concentration of power brought against it, which, receiving terrible blows, did not fail to give the like, and which, vital in all its parts, died only with its annihilation V "And the whole people, who had created that annihilated army and had upheld that vanished flag, and in their behalf had sacrificed its all, now, with one consent, gave to the cause for which they had striven vainly, but so well, the titil'The Lost Cause.' j "And this people mourned over their Lost Cause as the captive Israelites mourned over Zion. But they buried their grief deep in their own hearts, and, exchanging swords and guns for gents of industry, set themselves ring their desolate homes and ng their shattered fortunes, believed, and still believe, that reignty was intened to be re >y each and every State when ed the Constitution. It was universally taught among us that in this feature there was divinely inspired wisdom. It may have been wisdom for that century. Each State was then an independent agricultural community. The railroad, the steamship, the tele graph, were undreamed of on earth. But, as in nature, whenever the cli mate has changed the fauna and flora have beeu forced to change and adapt themselves to new environments, so among mankind must modes of gov ernment be modified to conform to new conditions. j "The steamboat, railroad and tele graph by IS6O had made a new planet out of the one George Washington knew.

Nature's aw of evolution, against which titution can prevail, at once t into play to overturn itf orces svitable as those of a vol- But such Darwinian con ceptions as those of political evolution had then entered few men's minds. Patrick Henry had said: 'Give me liberty or give me death!' Sure it would not be liberty if we could not secede whenever we wished to. Holding these j Is, we should have been cowards we not resisted for all we were ;h. And posterity should be grate or our having forced the issue and J fought it out to the bitter end. . "Now for our bearing upon my story. ime speak briefly of two matters of iry. Mr. Charles Francis Adams recent address has pointed out it is due to Gen. Lee that at Ap attox, in April, 1865, a surrender ie Confederate army was made, 3ad of the struggle being prolonged guerrilla war, such as has been ntly seen in South Africa. This action does, indeed, place Lee upon an exalted plane. And it fortunately happened that his rival actor in the great drama was Gen. Grant, a brother graduate of the Military Academy. lee's patriotic service. "Our alma mater may cherish the record of that day, when two of her sons, having each written his name so high in the annals of war, now united to turn the nation into the father of peace; for Gen. Grant, who has been proudly called by his victorious army U. s.—'Unconditional Surrender'— Grant, now seemed only to seek excuse to spare the Confederates every possi ble mortification and to save them from individual losses, even at the expense of his own government. "His example was immediately fol lowed by every man in his army down to the humblest teamster. Time fails me to describe the friendliness, cour tesy and generosity with which the whole victorious army seemed filled. The news of the surrender and its lib eral terms was received everywhere with feelings of generous conciliation. In proof it is only necessary to refer to the early negotiations between Sherman and Johnson. "President Lincoln also fully shared] these feelings and even planned for the Souths financial compensation for its loss of property by the emancipa tion of its slaves. Thus for six days— from April 9to 14—there was every prospect that reconstruction would be accomplished in the spirit manifested by Grant and under the direction of Lincoln, who, without his knowledge, powerful friend. Our treatment would have been not less liberal than that we have just seen accorded by the British to the Boers. "By the felonious act of an assassin in a moment this fair vision was shat tered' and in its place, and without fault upon her part, there was invoked against the prostrate South a whirlwind of rage and resentment. Indeed it is due to the restraint put upon the political leaders of the North by Gen. Grant that the death of Lin coln did not mark for the South the beginning of greater woes than those of the war itself. There resulted niauy years of bitterness and estrangement between the sections, retarding the growth of the national spirit and yield ing but slowly even to the great daily object lesson of the development of our country. NOT FOUGHT IN VAIN. "But there is still one thing more to be said. Was all our blood shed in vain ? Was all the agony endured for the Lost Cause but as water spilt upon the sand I No ! a thousand times, No ! We have set the world record for de votion to a cause. We have given to our children proud memories, and to history new names to be a theme and an inspiration for unborn generations. The heroes of future wars will emulate our Lees and Jaeksons. We have taught the armies of the world the ! casualties to be endured in battle. "The qualities of heart and soul de veloped both in our women and men, in the stress and strain of our poverty and in the furnace of onr affliction, have made a worthier race and have already borne rich reward in the build ing up of our country. "But, above and beyond all, the firm I bonds which today hold together this great nation could never have beenl wrought by debates in Congress. Hu- j man evolution has not yet progressed I so far. Such bonds must be forged, I welded and proved in the heat of bat tie and must be cemented in blood. Peace congresses and arbitration have never yet given birth to a nation, and this one had to be born in nature's way. "But bear with me yet a little, for I cannot leave the thoughts and mem ories evoked by my theme without some reference to a few among the great figures who moved amid those scenes, lest my story should seem to you as one of Hamlet with Hamlet left I "And love, where death has set Its seal, I Nor age can chill, nor rival steal. Nor falsehood disavow. THE CONFEDERATE PRIVATE HERO. "Shall I name to you a Confederate hero who deserves the highest pedestal, who bore the greatest privation and contributed most freely of his blood to win every victory and resist every de- Ifeat? I name the private soldi jr. Practically without pay and on half rations, he enlisted for life or death and served out his contract. He did not look the fighting man he was. He was lean, sunburnt and bearded, often barefoot and ragged. lie had neither training nor discipline, except what he acquired in the field. He had only an tiquated and inferior arms until he cap tured better ones in battle. He had not even military ambition; but he had one incentive which were lacking to his opponents, brave and loyal as they were. He was fighting for his home. From the time of Greece to that of South Africa all history attests the stimulus of the thoughts of 'home' to the soldiers fighting for it. And if some young military scientist among I your bright boys can formulate an I lion to express the battle power J i army. I am sure he will find the ght of borne to be a factor in it I highest exponents. So there was I ing anomalous about the fighting ir army. We fought for our homes >r men that we loved and trusted, brought out the best in eyery in iual, whether private or general. Upon our President Jefferson is, there fell from the necessity of irominent position not only defeat, obloquy and woes too many to merate. History, however, will do justice as having been most worthy epresent us, whether as a man, a eman or a soldier; and as any com nise of the issues at stake would c only carried with it the seeds of ther war, the nation is to be con sulted that to his high courage devotion.to his cause nocomprom was possible.

"Of J. E. Johnston, master of strat egy in the great game of war, whose brain was 'reason's self encased in home.' "Of Beauregard, who won Bull Run by his personal tenacity and with such science and skilled defended Sumter I and Petersburg. "Of Longstreet, whom Lee called his 'old war horse,' doing heavy work on every field from Bull Run to Appomat- C;. Of ;A. P. Hill, whose name was t on the lips of Lee upon his death bed and of Jackson when he 'crossed over the river to rest in the shade of the trees.' Of genial, dashing Stuart, always ready for any venture and san guine of success, who took up the bat tle left unfinished by Jackson's fall and carried it to its brilliant end. "Of gifted Hampton, our chevalier Bayard, with his saber-scarred face, i who served his State as effectively in j peace as he had done in war, and 'al ways bore without abuse the grand old name of gentleman.' Of Hood, with his one leg and crippled arm, under whom the Texans love to fight. Of good old Ewell, with his one leg and bald head and lustrous woodcock eye, who believed fighting to be the sole business of a soldier. Of Early, whose unreconciled spirit is perhaps still raiding up and down the Valley. "And a thousand others whose forms; and faces throng apon my memory and whose names history has inscribed npon the roll of honor. FIELDS THAT WERE FAMOUS. "It were a shorter task to try to enu merate the great fields of battle made historic of their valor. "Dolorous and bootless, Antietam is conspicuous as the bloodest single day in the'annals of this continent. Pick ett's charge at Gettysburg was the brilliant determination of a school of attack which has forever passed away with the advent of modern arms. "But Jackson's Valley campaign will always illustrate the correct prin ciple of strategy, however, weapons may be altered or improved. Wilder ness and Spottsylvania, where the Fed eral Army in eight days suffered more casualties than befell in all the wars from the discovery of America to 1860, were but the martial combats of what should be called the one great 'battle of Grant and Lee,' begun on the Rapl dan on May 4, 1864, and fought with out pause until ended at Appomattox on April 9,1865—11 months and 6 days. History has scarcely a parallel for such supreme display of battle power upon I each side. "At its opening Grant marshaled 122,146 men, and 61,274 followed Lee. In its progress every available rein forcement was called in by each side, the Confederacy even robbing the cradle and the grave to repair its wasting ranks. At its end the Federal losses had reached a total of 124,390. The Confederate losses can never be In, for their army was wiped oat stence, and no reports were pos it the final act was the surrender 356 Confederates to « force of 0 federals immediately about —a million men being in arms on Tnion side. • will leave the picture as its stands, id not go into our cause; we were into it.

On approaching the field, throw the hoop in such a manner that it will encircle grain In a place not I previously selected by the operator. All stalks encircled by the hoop should be coWted, then the stalks having smutted heads counted and that num ber divided by the whole number with in the hoops, c. g., if 125 stalks are found encircled and of this number 25 are found to be affected, 25 divided by 125 gives the number, .20, represent ing 20 per cent.
