XEWBERN. N. C , NOV. 12, 1873. The sketch of Gen. Junius Daniel lately published in Our Living and Our Dead, was written by Major Edward Conigland, of Halifax, X. C, for the 'Lund We Love. In giving credit to Gen. Hill's Magazine, we omitted the name of the author. The sketch of Gen. S. D. Ramseur, pub lished by us last week was taken from the same periodical but to us the author is un known. The sketch in to-day's paper is from the pen of our friend, Major tteaton Gales, of Raleigh. It is admirably written, display ing alike the discriminating taste and sound judgment of the author. "We regret that the three opening paragraphs of this sketch which relates to the earlier life of Gen. Anderson are not in our possession. We commence his career as a student at West Foint. OBITUARY. The Tamoiies!" of Our Early Niute IIi!rj John Locke mil Our Constitution. BY MRS. CORNELIA P. SPENCER. The student of Ninth Carolina History who lias patiently progressed to the dajs of the Regulation, and wistfully eyes the departure of those brave men over the mountains, will find himself just here J think, in the condition of a voyager on a somewhat sluggish stream who sees be fore him a division of the current, and though his legitimate business is to fol low the main stream, jet he is sorely tempted by the more romantic scenery, the wilder "dash and sparkle of the new channel. In 17C0 we are nt a point where Tennessee begins her pioneer life, led from Carolina till she can assume a name of her own; and with all love and honor for the Mother State, her early annals peem to me tame in comparison with those ol her young daughter. Perhaps if our early settlers had had to fight for every inch of ground they occu pied they would have valued it more high ly, and would have bequeathed to their children and grand children a warmer love for their inheritance. We have no such stirring incidents of border warfare, no thrilli "g traditions of Indian massacre, of hair-breadth escapes, of bold adventure an ! romantic exploits us liil the pages of Ramsay, and Haywood, the historians of Tennessee. We have no such central gab hint figure as John Severe. The men and women who settled the valleys of the HoLston, the Watauga, the Tennessee and the Cumberland ono hundred years a -o found the conditions of life suo'i as to develop every drop of red blood in their veins, niiii so improve its quality that the children born of them were bora with inoro animal and mental vigor, more jf rvc, capable of more romantic and gen erous enthusiasm, and i more passionate attachment to the soil they were b in on. Oar setth rs in middle Carolina at hast si'Hii to have found but bule trouble with Indians. This was probably never such a noble hunting ground as Tennessee and Kentucky, and where the Scotch-1 nsh ai.d their godly ministers moved slowly down from Pennsylvania and Virginia, and took t' 1 1 possession of the valleys of the Haw, and the Yadkin, and Catawba, they found no one to dispute tluir ownership. Our early annals eon-ist mainly of tediouf dt tails of the utt.-iupts of fortune seeking voyagers to make permanent settlement, on our coasts, of crown grants, and squab bles of the Lords Proprietors. Then, as now, people found a diflleulty in emigra ting to North Carolina. Their alienors would not hold in our shallow bays, though their journals were full of admira tion for the, goodly nature of the land, 'die rich luxuriance of the forest; the profu sion of fruits and flowers. Yet a common imbecility appears to have attached to every first'attempt at occupation. One gets desperately tired of them all, and their long drawn narrations which lead to nothing and have a common termina tion therein, iu l)7i, just two hundred years ago, when Virginia numbered forty thousand inhabitants, North Caiolina, then called Albemarle, contained but fourteen hun dred, s-j slowly and languid hud our o lo nization proceeded. Yet there was a spark flashed from these fourteen hundred on occasion, which showed they were of the right metal. The leaibng men of the colony desiring some stable form of government, and thinking to get the best article full-grown and matured, pent over to England to the celebrated philosopher Locke for a plan warranted to work smoothly at starting and to last forever. To Mr. Locke in bin closet nothing was easier than to draw up an admirable code of laws. I imagine the delight with which he set about a task so congtnial to one profoundly skilled in the science of government. North Carolina, it was arranged, was to have a " Palat'm: for life" (whatever a Palatine is) was to have a body of "hereditary nobility" landyravcs ;aciqncn, and baron isx," and the estates were to descend with their ttig nities '-forever." Only think of the scale on which the philosopher drew las plan. In the titles of these digi.ities he seems to have aimed at conciliating what lie sup posed to be the mixed multitude from ad nations which composed the colony. One of the royal Dukes was to be the first Pal atine the philosopher himself was to be one of the landgraves, which shows that philosophers are not always as philosophic as tradition reports them to be, in oases where titles and hereditary estates of four thousand acres to descend in the family "forever" are concerned. However Mr. Locke was destiued to re main Mi. Locke, and had fortunately cer tain 'origin ties" attached to that plain title much more likely to carry hi name down "forever" than any herediiary estate whatever. The rank and file of the sturdy colouiwts on the Albemarle utterly refused the new constitution. "Palatine" and all. An insurrection fallowed the attempts to introduce it, the innovating proprietors were seized, imprisoned, and an indepen dent popular government established by the people themselves. I like this little story there is a germ in it of the harvest of 1775. N, C, Presbyterian. Licuteiiiiiit-fjiciierul William J. Harriets Perhaps no officer in the army of the Confederate States of America was more successful in all he undertook than Gener al Hardee. General Hardee, a native of the city of Savannah in the State of Georgia, was born in the year 1817. In 1831 he entered West Point as a cadet and graduating with honor four years afterwards, was commissioned Second Lieutenant, in the Second United States Dragoons and sent to Florida, where he served for two years. On 3rd December, 18:39, he was promo ted to a First Lieutenancy, and sent to the, celebrated French military school at St. Ma nr. There he was regularly at tached to the cavalry branch of the French army. After perfecting himself as a cav alry officer, ho returned to the United States bringing a flattering letter of re commendation from Marshal Oudinot to the Secretary of War at Washington City. Lieutenant Hardee quickly rejoining his regiment soon became actively em ployed in defending the advanced settle ments of their Western frontrer from Indi an depredations. On ihe 18th of September, 1811, he was promoted to be a Captain of Diagoons, and accompanied General Taylor across the Rio Grande to the Mexican Campaign. He was taken prisoner at a place called Curricitos, being overwhelmed by superi or numbers and was compelled to remain a captive for several month-, but was ex changed iu time to take part in the siege of Monterey. He was promoted for gal lantry to be Major of Cavalry on the 23th of March, 1815, and for subseqert merito rious conduct was made a brevet Lieuten ant Colonel. In the regular army he was promoted to the rank of Major in the fa mous Second Cavalry Regiment, of which Albert Sydney Johnston was Colonel and Robert E. Lee was Lieutenant Colonel. Jefferson Davis, then Secretary of War,de tailed Major Hardee to prepare a system of infantry tactics, and the fruit of his labors was "Hardee's Tactics," so well known throughout the South. In 1856, on the completiju of the "Taos tics." Major Hardee was rdered to West Point with the local rank of Lieutenant Colonel, where he remained with the ex ception of o i e year's absence in Europe, until he was piomoted to the full rank of Lieuteuaut Colonel of cavalry in the reg ular army a position that he resigned ou the '51st ol Januarv, 18(31. About the lv.st of February, 1801, he oll'ered his services to the Confedeiate Government at Mont gomery, Alabama. They were gladly ac cepted, and he was commissioned Colonel of the First llegiment of feifantry, as signed to duty at Fort Morgan, with in structions to take all the approaches to Mobile under his command. In June, he was appointed .Brigadier General and sent to Arkansas, from whence he was trans ferred to Kentucky. Having been appoin ted a Major General, a poir, on of tie for es undt r his command on the I7:ii De cember, 18(51, fought the battle of Muin fordsville. He remained at low ling Green all the winter as s coin! iu command at the post. At the battle of Shiloh his zeal, ab'lity and skill were especially conspicu ous. From this tame lb neral Hardee, with his corps was attached to Hragg'j Army and commanded its 1. It wing at the, battle ol Perryville, where his conduct won him the co mm ssinn of Lieutenant Genera'.

We cojy the following from the telegra phic columns of that most excellent daily, the Wilmington Journal, of Sunday's date. IliciiKOND, Nov. 8. The funeral obsequies of Mrs. Mary Custis Lee, the wife of the illustrious and world-renowned Gen. Ilobert E. Lec, who died in Lexington, on Thursday morning last, took place yesterday in Masonic Chap el, in that towr. Her sons, W. II. F. Lee, Custis Lee and Ilobert E. Lee, jr., and her daughter were present, besides a large con course of friends. Her remains were deposited by the side of her husband in the Memorial Room. Mrs. Lee was G7 years of age. Business was entirely suspended in Lexington yes terday, many places being draped in mour ning and the obsequies, were very impos- clergy and people all did honor to the j memory of the illustrious dead. The bells I were tolled during the day and business iwas suspended. The funeral procession was the longest we ever witnessed in the State. It was not a formality, but there was general grief in the demonstration. The General's old black war horse, Shi loh, with empty saddle and his old Confed- i erate grey coat upon it, brought tears to j the eyes of many a man who had seen the loved form of the gallant dead on the field of carnage and amid the smoke of battle. The burial ceremonies were performed by the Rev. Dr. Clements of the Episco pal Church. The Kattle Xot Always to Hie Strong. One hundred years ago, a bravo people small in numbers and weak in resources contended against a combination of four great nations: Anstria, France, Russia, and Sweden, with their powerful and well equipped armies threatened the existence of Prussia. At the commencement of the war, these allies brought into the field 7U0,000 men. Frederick, King of Prus sia, with his Hanover allies, could muster ouly 2G0,0o0, including necessary garri sons for fortified posts. In the battle of Prague, fought on May Gth, 1757, the Prussians numbered G8,000 men the Aus trians 75,000. The Prussians were victo rious. The Austriaus lost 17,000 killed wounded and prisoners, GO cannon and 30 standards Prussia lost 12,000. In the battle of Kelin. fought on June 17, 1757. the Prussians had 32,000 men and the Austriaus GO, 000 men. The Prus sians were defeated, with a loss of 11,000 men, and 22 standards. After this reverse, in consequence of losses by sickness, skirmishes and desertions, and from the iiecessitytof holding many fortified posts, Frederick could bring only 80,000 availa ble men into the field against 400,000 of his enemies. They were confident of crushing him. On the 30th of August, 1707, tiie drawn battle of Jaegerndorf was fought between the Pruss:au forces, 22,000 strong, and the Russians, 120,000 strong; Prussian loss 5,700, Russian (1,500 as a consequence, the Russians evacuated Prussia, with the exception of one for tress. On Nov. 5th, 1757, the Prussians won the victory of Rnshaek over the French. In this battle the Prussians immbvuvd 2:),000, the French 70,0)0. Prussian loss only 500, the Fr mch 3,500 killed and G,22o prisoners and Gl cannon. While Frederick was thus making head against th French, the Austriaus, 00,00) strong, attacked the Prussians 23,000 under the Duke of Revan, near Brt slau, and defeat ed him with a loss of 0,8 0 men, 33 can nous and 5 standards. Frederick Inning finished with the French, collected 30,000 men, turned on the Austriaus ami attack ed their army of 90,000 men ntLissa, on the 5th of December, 1757. II defeated them. Austria lost in this battle 7,100 killed and wounded, 21,3)0 prisoners, 117 cannon and 57 standards. Prussian loss 5,00 ). As a coiim qnenee of the victory, Breslau fell into thn hands of the King of Prussia, on Dee. Ill til, with 17,530 pi bon ers and -1 1 cannon. On the 21th of December, 1758, the bat tles Zrondorf, was fought between the Russian forces, numbering 50,00 , and the Prussians 30,000 strong. The Prussian again victor ous. The Pruss.an loss 10, 0;0 Russian loss 1K,000 kil'ol and woisn-h-d. 2,803 prisoners, lOlemnon and 32 standards. At Mindoti, on August 1st. 1750, the Prussians 35,000 strong, attack d and completely r ute l the Fn nrii, forces, numbering 7,0 id, and cause i the evacuation of Westphv.l a by the French armies. In August 17G ), the Austriaus had an army of 100,000 men, the Russian s ono of 75,000 in the province of Sih-i i Freder ick had 80.00!) men in the same province, many of them in garrison. Notwithstan ding the disparity of members he preven ted the union of the two invading armies, and on the 15i h of August, defeated the Aus' rums at Lieguetz with a loss of 7, 500 men, 82 cannon and 23 standards. On November 3!st, of th" same year, he attackei the Austriaus, who greatly outnumbered him and besides In Id a strong position at Torgan, indicting a loss of 17,000 men, "0 cannon, and 30 standards, his own loss being 1 0,500. In 1702, the Prussians were victorious over Miperior numbers in the battles of Rein ch en back and Freyberg; and defeated the French who greatly outnumbered them at Wilhelmsthan. The war ended in this year. The wearied and discomforted al lies gave up the work of subjugation, and left the 1'iussians in peace to rebuild their towns and villages and restore their wasted country to its former prosperity. The Prussian province surtVred every evil which war can inflict. Rut the vigi lance, activity and boldness of Kiug Fred ick, the discipline and bravery of his troops, and the fortitude of his people, triumphed over every obstacle. Let us ponder well this les-:oti of a hundred years ago. Army and Navy Messenger. The I.ate IlKh; E i-y. While devoted to his church and the great cause of our common Christiani ty, for which belabored so ardently, no citizen felt or manifested more interest in the State. Removing to Lynchburg in 1821 or '22, (which has ever since been his home,) he soon identified himself with it interests . He was one of the most active promoters of the scheme for furnishing our citv with water, and a prominent par ticipant in the ceremonies incident to lay ing the corner stone of the Citv Water Works on the 23rd of April, 1823. He was also, at one time, an active member of the City Couecil, President of the Yir giniaJLiank, Director in the James River ami Kanawha Canal Corapauy, an early and ardent friend of ihe great railroad that was finally pushed h-jm tin's city, through the mountain gorges of South weVt Virginia to the Tennessee line. To him we are chiefly indebted for the project of locating and opening the beautiful ceme tery of Spring Hill, where his remains will be Jaid by the side of that beloved wife who was one of its first tenants, and near those of his most ao'.ivo and valuable as sociate in the same enterprise, the late excellent Ambrose B. Rucker, one of ti e best citizens Lynchburg ever had. Rishop Early was also the chief founder of that growing institution of learning, Randolph Macon College, of whose Board of Trustes he was continued the President for many yeais. Mingling fre.ly with men of business, politicians and statesmen though his Christian character of minis terial dignity wTas never compromised the Rishop was tendered nominations to Congress, was offered theGovernoiship of the Illinois Territory, was solicited after wards by President Adams, to take that of the Aruansas Territory, and wes offered the position of Comptroller of the Treas ury by President Tyler, all of which hon ors he respectfully declined, believing that the mission he was to fulfill in the world was of a different character. Rut yet, we must accept these a evidences of the very exalted opinion entertained of his integrity and capacity, In the measures which resulted in the division of the M. E. Church at New York in 1811 occasioned chiefly by the arraign ment of the good Rishop Andrew, whose wife owned a few slaves; and the intolerant course of the Northern representative Rishop Early took a prominent part.

Stores were closed and busi ness was suspended and our whole people united in honoring the illustrious dead. At 3 o'clock this p. m., the funeral services took place, and another immense proces sion escorted the body to the church which was packed, and with hundreds in the streets who could not get in.
