We have been appointed to make to you

a!i*?ut sevonty deleg'tpp. and a permanent
N' ttiunal Association wa- organized, having]
lu* itj> object t'ie pr ?motio"?of thegrest cause
of education in the Confederate States.
One of the m st important subjects before,
tbe in??-jt<nc w?s the supply of imitable tex1
hooks for our sr*b M?1S. and it was ascertain?..Ij
that many works are in course of preparan -rt
..y citi/. 'ti> id our country, and that a numb rj
of elemmitiirv b. ok* have already been ? u?
lish< d. and ar? in great demand. The Ass > j

enterprises, and p!edg"d its members to the

To w iden aud strengthen the influence of|

. State of the Confi-derapy ; rftid a ?esobitio'i
was passed urging<> ? the authorities of tho
several States the importance of St iles stems
ot public schools, and the appointment ol u
superintend* nt in ouch.
lt was also recommended that effort ht
made to educate for teachers' worthy young
men disabled by the war from manual labor
und means were adopt ed for the dissemination
o' the views of the Association ou various sub
jects connected with the purposes of its or
ganizat?on. Jt is believed that if the hearty
co-operation of the teachers and friends ni
education'it.< all parts of the Confederacy.,in
carrying o* t the objects of these movements
eau be i-ecureu, au immense amount of good
can be accomplished. Our Association way
profoundly impressed with the belief thai
now is the time to work ; and that whatev-r
is demanded by ?|ie wants of the country,
should be uuderXken at once, and wit hun
waiting for better times. Better times, by
the blessing of God, are to be expected only
from the dilligent exertion of all class?s in
their appropriate spheres tor the public.wei

things, no portion of. the community can ac

We need cot suggest to you tho great ad
vantages tn our work of mutual counsel andj
c?? operation. By coming together in Nation j
al and State Associations the teachers and
friends of education gain* important informa
tion ol each otner and learn the wants and
p-ogrcss of different sections ; they animate
and encourage ono another to greater efforts,
ivhile by this means injurious prejudices are
?vorn away, a national/and' catholic.spirit is
fostered, and the educational forces of the
country are so unitedand directed as greatly
to enhance their iniluence and io secure that

In the name of our National Association
we invite your attention uo the above state

The next meeting of the Association will
take place in Atlanta, Georgia, on the first

nay will, with these advantages, engage inferior

PADGET, Corp jral in th J " S d<'du Riflemen,"
known as Company M, 7?.h S. C. Regiment, who
iled at Fredrick City, Md., on tho 3rd January,
1 sr,3, of a wound received iu the battle of Sharps
burg, Md., ou the 17th September, 1SC2.
Corporal A. M. PADGET wac a son of M.. MV
PAOQET, Esq., Edgefield District S. C. De wai
born on the 4th of March, 1844. De having dis
played a decided taste for letters and learning his
father had given him every opportunity to indulge
bis literary tastes, and acquire the knowledge he
hr-ped to possess. At the early age of IS we lind
him at Dickenson College, I'?.; an I isled ns i t were
in the raco for knowledge und collogiate distinc
Lion, He remained there until his native State
left the odious Union, He ihen come home and
intered Wolf ord College, at Spartanburg, S. C.,
where he remained until about tho 1st of May,
1SC1, when tho nntural patriotic impulses of the
gallant school-boy lcd him to lay aside hooks, for
sake the classics, and oller his services to bb
:ountry. He joined Captain, now Col. J. WAL
KER'S (of the Palmetto Sharpshooters) Company.
Th e.??partan Rifle?" and come to Virginia, in
tho 5th S. C. Regt., then under the command of
Colonel, now Cen. M. JENKINS. With that Regi
ment he served faithfully and efficiently until Hie
urbanization of Company M, iu the 7th, as a re
unlisiod Company. He being ono among the fir.-t
io re-onlist, bad the right to join the Company of
his choice, consequently he joined the ??'aluda Hi
ftemem, to bc with bis neighbors and schoolmates.
From the day he entered tho Company his ^Jflcem
and comrade* marked him as the prompt, intelli
gent and efficient soldier. Ho was every where
recognized as a consummate gentleman, and ali
who made his acquaintance valued his friendship
and held him in high esteem. He lent tone aud
dignity le the posh ion of a private by his quiet,
unobtrusive, 'noble deportment under all circum
stances. Admired and flattered by his officers,
yet ue was ever ibV-sinne ne ole, unassuming brave
By his promptness and application to his duties
and by his bravery on the battle-field he won thc
approbation nnd entire confidence of bis Company
ufiicurs, and although his native delicacy of feel
ing und fear uf self-laudation would have ever
prevented him from asking for any position, he
was made a Corporal. Upon being told of bia
ippointmcntbo blushingly accepted it, eayiug, "I
hope I may ever be able to do my duty in a man
ier satisfactory to you and credit to myself."
Noble hoy! Gallant Soldier! Most nobly did he
lo h;s duty without faltering-without fear. At
ibo battle of isharpaburg he fought with coolness
iud gallantry never excelled by any Kn'njhl of
tncient times.
In advance of his Company, and directly in
front of the enemy's death-dealing batteries he
itood in defiant attitudo, ever and anon sondiuir
leath's darts into the ranks of the artillerymen
vith his trusty rifle. His bonring on that blosdy
ield stamped bim tho immortal hero, if his former
ictions bad failed to do so.
But not thou and there did ho receive the wound
hat proved mortal, and deprived his Company
md his country of one of their bravest soldiers,
ind his parents of their best beloved-their oldest
lorn. 'Twas after tho fiorco charge was over, and
ilrcding, mangled forms of dead and dying strew
:d thc ground, far and near, that tho cruel shot
lid its work.
'Tis said the tr .'ly bravo are always self-sacri
icing, generous und kind. Such indeed was the1
ase with him. Ar or bo bad been ordered to!
cave the field ho carno across a wounded comrade!
till in rango of the guns of the enemy and inj
;rent danger. Forgetting self and all relfish feei
ng, ho determined to save his bleeding comrade]
ven though he might perish. Ho accomplished!
is mission of kindness-his friend is safe, but he. |
las ! is no more. Ile caught his death by hi
leroic devotion to a; friend in distress. Having
cen wounded it was impossible to got him over
hb River before our army fell back into Virginia,
nnsequen'iy he, with: many others, were left iu
lory land.
After much suffering he died, and now his body
eposes inMount Olivet Cemetery, Fredrick City,
Id., nhilc his pure spirit is rejoicing with ?ngela
i Heaven. Thoa it is our ni Mest and best men
re offered up as sacrifices upon tho altar of our
ountry. Tbougbmany have fallen in this strug
|H for liberty and all that makes life dear, none
aro fnllcn moro gloriously than he. A martyr's
roath of immortal honor is his. Would that wc
unid wcavo a chaplet worthy of bim now that
c lies cold in his martial glory.
May Heaven catbfort'hia bereaved parents. We
empathize with tnera In their deep sorrow.1 They
louki bo comforted to know that he died Uko afi
hristisn hero, worthy of tho great cause in which!!
0 was engaged. With us, his surviving friends,
