Yesterday was a long and happy
u.. at our house, for a lot of the
?randchildren came early and some of
tte neighbors' little girls found out
.jit-v were here. They always find
out. and so they came over and joined
. procession a'id it was an unbroken
frclic all the day long. The little
JJCS? brought their dolls along, for the
maternal instinct begins early. They
made playhouses under the trees and
played niumblcpeg with my two knives,
ttHj rode in the hall and veranda on
t|lt, tricycle and dressed up in all the
tice ?'ld clothes my wife could find in
ihc trunks and closets, and paraded
upstairs and downstairs and outdoors
H;t|, their trains dragging after them,
?md they played going to call and re
ceiving calls. Wheu the dinner bell
ratig they all came runoing and it took
ail my time to wait on them, and their
grandma |rot oat every good thing she
Vad in thc house, and about the mid
dle of tho afteruoon they wanted to
?ive a little party and had to have
more cakes and crackers and pie.
Home of the little ones got hold of
s.mic chalk and colored crayons and
marked all over the veranda and tried
to make pictures of dogs and horses
and monkeys on the walls, and-then
tbey called for scissors and fashion
books and cut out pictures and scat
tered thom all over the room. They
got hold of my mucilage bottle and
tasted thiugs all about and even ven
tured to my little table to write let
ters while I was working in the gar
den, and all their grandma said war:
"You had better watch out, your
grandpa is coming." I'm going to
liek cm sometime when she is not
?bout. But in due time they had to
go honie, for
"The Jay was done and the darkness
Fell from the wings of night."
Our own girls went visiting after
supper and my wife and I were alone
and not a sound was heard in all the
house save the ticking of the clock
upon the mantel. The contrast, was
?i great that it was impressive and we
felt lonesome and almost sad. Bach
ol' w had our corner and table and
la":p and tried to read the war news,
but our old eyes were tired and we
azed upon thc fire and ruminated,
'or some time we had been in silent,
erious reverie about these little, hap
ly children and breathing a prayer
kat they might alway? pe happy and
hat no calamity or affliction might
efall them, and then our minds
urned to our absent boys, who are
tattered far and wide, from New
ork to Mexico, and we breathed
nother prayer for their health and
appiness and their return to us some
f these days-yes, Home of these
ays hf:forc wc die they will come, we
uov7, but it may be to a funeral in
tend of a feast.
We wore ruminating about all this
n silence, when suddculy my wife
temed startled and whispered, "I
eard a footfall at the window. There
somebody there." Before I could

I have had some most delicious
reading lately. It is thc address de
livered by Dr. Hunter McGuire on
January 22d last past at the St. Denis
hotel, in New York, at the eighth an
nual banquet of the Confederate Vet
erans camp, of New York City. It
must be, I know, the most beautiful
and thrilling tribute to Stonewall ever
written or spoken by any man. Dr.
McGuire was Jackson's medical di
rector and most confidential friend
and has told in this address mere
touching incidents connected with thc
great general's military career than I
have ever found and they aro beauti
fully, charmingly told. Every page
of this little booklet is adorned with
them. Is is not often that medical
men indulgo in biographical litera
ture, but Dr. McGuire is certainly a
man of rare culture. I read this ad
dress aloud to my wife and daughters
last evening and at times I could not
read. I had to pause and wait for,my
heart to be still and my voice, to come
back to rae. These always tell me
when what I read is inspired. How
did our hearts burn within us as I
read and how was our patriotism re
vived and set aglow with a new fire.
Kv sn cn thc first page he awakens us
from that lethargy which time and
current events bring over the best of
patriots, for he says:
"It was with a swelling heart that I
recently .heard some of the first sol
diers and military "students of Eng
land declare that within the past 200
years the English speaking race has
produced but five soldiers of the first
rank-Marlborough, Washington,Well
ington, Robert E. Lee and Stonewall
Jackson. I heard them declare that
Jackson's campaign in the Shenan
doah valley was the finest specimen of
strategy ard tactics of which the world
has any record; that in this scries of
marches and battles there was never a
blunder and that this campaign was
superior to either of those made by
Napoleon in Italy. One British offi
cer, who teaches strategy in a great
European college, told me that he
used this campaign as a model and
dwelt upon it for months in his lec
tures and that it was taught in ali
military schools of Germany and Van
Moltke declared it was without a rival
in the world's history. "Indeed," he
added, "Jackson seems to me to have
been inspired." Another British
soldier of high rank and a trained stu
dent of wo- told me that for its num
bers the anny of Northern Virginia
had more fcrce and power than any
other army that ever existed.
Well, that is enough for a starter
a starter of the blood in the patriot's
veins. Sometimes I feel like I would
be proud to have been born a Vir
ginian, where these great soldiers
lived-Washington, Lee and Jackson
-and where Jefferson and Madison
and Monroe and Patrick Henry and
John Marshall lived. I wish that
every old soldier and every young
man in this Southern land could
read this splendid address. I fear
that it is too long for a single issue of
the ComttittUioH, for it is neai 7,000
words, but nothing better could occu
py its columns'. It reads like a ro
mance and if there are any young:
men in Georgia who are inclined to
make sport of the war the perusal of
this address will make them feel
ashamed that they ever entertained
such un patriotic feelings. We have
heard of a "young man's party" as
hostile to any further political honor
to the veterans, but surely this can
act ha true, for what young man can
be found who would io dishonor the
mother who bore him or the father or
uncle or kinsman who fought or fell in
the late war? No. Eather let every
young Georgian echo the sentiment of
Henry Grady when he said at the New
Rutland banquet: "Th? South has

Capt. Maxwell Caused the Famous City
Point Explosion.
New York Sun.
RICHMOND, VA., March 5.-Thc re
cent disaster to the Maine recalls a
tragic incident in thc late war, wheu
$4,000,000 worth of property of the
Federal Government was destroyed,
and the lives of more than half a hun
dred men were lost, while 12o were
wounded. This event occurred on
August 9, 1804, at City Point. The
man who, acting under instructions
from the Confederate States Govern
ment, caused thc terrible havoc is
Capt John Maxwell, a well-known ma
chinist, who resides at 318 North 27th
street, in this city. Capt. Maxwell
gives thc following account of his ex
periences :
"I left Richmond on thc 20th of
July, 1804, to operate with what was
known as the 'horological' torpedo
uguiuai tuc vessels of the Federal for
ces navigating the James River. Mr.
R. K. Dillard, since dead, was with
me. He was well acquainted with the
river, and would go anywhere I led, no
matter what the danger might bc.
When we reached the Isle of Wight
County on August 2, we heard that an
immense supply of stores was being
landed at City Point, and at once
started for that place, intending, if
possible, to introduce our machine
upon one of the vessels discharging
their cargoes there.
"We reached City Point before day
break on August 9, having travelled
mostly by night, and crawled upon our
Vnees to pass the picket lines. I had
with me an ordinary candle box. con
taining twelve pounds of gunpowder,
procured at a country store. In the
box was packed a small machine, my
own invention, which was arranged by
means of a lever to explode a cap at a
time indicated by a dial.
"When we got within half a mile of
City Point I told Dillard to remain in
behind while I went forward with my
machine. I went out on the wharf
cautiously, put my box down and took
a seat on it, awaiting an opportune
moment to get it aboard a vessel.
There were two boats at the wharf
loaded with ammunition and various
stores for the Federal troops, while on
thc bank wore buildings stored with
"I sat waiting until I saw the cap
tain of the vessel nearest to mc leave
his boat. That was my opportunity.
I picked up the box of powder and
started for the boat. As I reached
the edge of the wharf the sentry hail
ed me. He was a German and could
not speak a word of English. He
vociferated something at me in Ger
man, while I rejoined in broad Scotch.
Finally by means of signs I induced
him to let me approach the vessel.
Just then a negro appeared at the side
of the ship. 1 gave him the box aud
told him the captain said put it down
below until he came. The man took
it without question, and carried it
down, while I went off a little dis
"In an hour's time the explosion
occurred. It was terrific. Its effect
was communicated to the other ves
sels and also to the large building on
thc wharf, filled with stores, and all
were destroyed utterly. I myself was
terribly shocked by the explosion, but
waa not injured permanently. Dil
lard, my companion, was rendered
deaf by thc sxplosion and never re
covered from its effects.
"The scene, though terrific, was in
sonic respects ludicrous. The air was
filled with all sorts of munitions of
war. Army saddles careered through
the air as though playing leap-frog,
while headless bodies, arms, legs and
heads of the unfortunate crew flew in
fragments about in the smoke. The
official report of the enemy was that
58 men ware killed and 126 wounded,
but I think that this estimate was toe
low. They also reported that property
to the amount of #4,060,009 wee de
'There ia one thing only that 1 re
gret sad that ie, according to the re
port sf the enemy, a party of ladies
wss killed. Of source, we nev>cr in
tended anything of the kind, not being
aware of their presence. .
(<Teis,'.' said Capt. Maxwell, going
te a trank and taking out a small
package, "contain? the mato of the
machine which blew np City Point.
OF course, that ?achine was wrecked
in the explosion. ? had two of them
I ?. ??
The little machine exhibited by
Capt. Maxwell was an arrangement of
cog wheels n.nch resembling the works
of a clock. On the top was a dial. A
lever -eontrollod by a strong spring
was released at n certain time and ex
ploded a nap fixed on a nipple, upon
thi end of a tube, through whioh the
fire was communicated to thc charge
of powder.
From a box on the mantelpiece
Capt. Maxwell took u cap which he
has had ever since thc war and placed
it on the nipple. He sprung tho
lever, and the cap was exploded with
a deafening noise
Capt. Maxwell was born sixty-five
years ago in the Highlands of Scot
land. He went to Glasgow when
quite young and spent the early part
of hts life there. When a young mun ?
ne came to the United States. At t
that time he was a splendid looking <
specimen of manhood and cveu uow 1
wears his years easily. As a young i
man Capt Maxwell stood full six feet
in height, with broad, square shoul
ders, black hair, mustache and whis
kers. For two years after comiug to
the United States Capt. Maxwell was
on board the steamer Niagara, engaged
in laying the first Atlantic cable.
Later he went on an expedition to
When th? war came he was living in
Martinsburg, Ya., and at once enlisted
in the army as fourth sergeant in the
Wise Artillery, commanded by Capt.
Alburtis. On April 1803, he was
detached from the artillery brauch of
thc service and entered the secret
service in the Confederate navy. Ile
was acting in that capacity, with the
rank of captain, when he caused the
explosion of thc City Point.
Another daring deed done by Capt.
Maxwell during his connection with
the secret, service was his attempt tc
destroy the Monitor, which was sent
down to 'heck thc destructive work of
tho Merrimac. Ile left Richmond
with some torpedoes invented by a
man named McEvoy. Capt. Maxwell
had little faith in the torpedoes, for
their construction was faulty, but he
obeyed his orders. In the darkness of
the night he swam out to the Monitor
and affixed one to each side. As he
had feared, there was no explosion.
When morning came and the crew of
the Monitor discovered the torpedoes
they were seized with terror and hoist
ed signals of distress.
Sixteen war vessels of the enemy
were drawn up iu line, extending from
Newport News to thc mouth o? the
Elizabeth Uiver. Their boats respond
ed to the signals of distress and took
off the Crew of the Monitor. The
boats then rowed around and around
thc ironclad, fearing to approach.
Gradually they grew bolder and came
close enough to lasso the torpedoes.
Capt. Maxwell also affixed a torpedo
of a different make to thc war ship
Minnesota and exploded the same, but
although the ship was badly shaken,
there was not a sufficient charge to do
her any material damage. After his
adventure at City Point Capt. Max
well went to Ncwberne, N. C., and
while the Federal forces were guard
ing the bridge there fired it in four
places underneath and made his
He was the inventor of perhaps the
first torpedoes used in the civil war.
A New York paper of February 20 last
printed pictures of some old-time tor
pedoes, tue same being identical with
those invented by Capt. Maxwell, and
which were made for him during the
war by Mr. Barrett, now living in this
After the war Capt. Maxwell went
to New York, and while there the fact
that he had blown up the ships at City
Point was printed in the newspapers.
This created such intense feeling
against him that he left the city. He
then went in the Peruvian navy as a
volunteer, but had yellow fever, and
after his recovery came to Richmond,
where he has lived ever since.
Capt. Maxwell, during his connec
tion with the Confederate navy, cap
tured four vessels-the Titan, the
Jane Duffield, the Iolno and the Mat
tie Parker. He now has the compass
of one of these vessels and the night
glasses of another.
The Boys.
lt seems strange and deplorable to
me that there are so many fathers and
mothers who do not think of giving
their little boys a little spot of ground
for a garden all their own.
Give them a few cents to buy seeds,
and let them come in their own name.
You know there is a great delight in
possession. They know thou they are
their ''very own," and it creates in
terest. Do not be afraid to let them
look over your catalogue and find what
they prefer. If their judgment ia
not good, direct them in a kind and
interesting way. If it ia possible,
let them have new needs an before

LONDON, March 0.-According to
ihc statement of a man whose cards
lesorihe him as being an electrical
engineer, whose name cannot be dis
posed, but has been forwarded to
Washington, says he sold to Spanish
officers in London several years ago a
large number of mines, eight or ten of
which were placed in Havana harbor.
Ile soys they were made in a special
way. and had a specially and peculiar
ly constructed cable, which he eon
tends he can positively identify if thc I
smallest piece is produced. Some of
the mines, the tuan continues, were
fixed so they could he bred from a fort,
and two of them had bulbs, arranged
that they would explode upon a ves
sel coming in contact with them. Hut
the alleged electrical engineer adds
that he docs not believe thc bulbs
would be used in water as shallow as
that of Havana harbor. Ile exhibited
the plans of one of these mines, which
he pointed out was the most likely to
produce the effect described as caus
ing the wreck of the Maine, lt was

to contain 500 pounds of gun cotton.
This is the story told by the man who
gives one thc impression that he has
been sergeant of engineers, or has
held some similar position. He was
apparently thoroughly posted upon
electrical matters and sub-marine

statement is au Englishman, and he
