The VmniNiAN publishes this morn
in? a letter from Col. John S, Crosby,
written for the reason that ho could cot
pass unnoticed tho commsutB in yester?
day's VinoixiAN under tho heading of
"Confederate Memorial Day." The
Yikuinian cannot bco anything iu the
article in question that Col. Crosby or
any other gallant and ehr/ irons sol
dipr of tho Federal army cttu justly
take exception to. Xothiug therein
written was intended to "revive bitter*
nos's of feeling botwoon tho North aud
South," nor to engender m the minds
of the youth of tho South "sectioual
and disloyal prejudices"
It was n defense of tho Confederate
soldier against tho monstrous charge
of being a rebel aud n traitor. It v.ss
intended as a vindication of the truth
of history, thut these soldiers of tho
Confederacy fought for a 1>BIX0IPI>R
and a riuiit, and surely so good a sol?
dier, so gallant a man as Col. Crosby
cannot tuke just exception to this.
In contesting for tho establishment
of thiB truth of history, in au ellort to
demonstrate to our cbildrcu, so that
they may impress it upon the minds of
their ohildreu, that the Couiedorato
soldier was not a rebel, that ho was not
a traitor.but that he fought to preserve
the right of constitutional liberty,
guaranteed by the constitution aud
handed down by tho fathers of the Re?
public, there is no ground for any
break in the platform of "Fra?
ternity, Charity and Loyalty."
Truly, as Col. Crosby assorts,
"our strife was domestic," aud
he is right in his conclusion, "that
all good men who carried a musket or
bnckled on a sword have not tho slight?
est desire to treasure its hostilities,"
There is no auch desire upon the part
of the soMiors who fought under
the bann *r of the Confederacy;
there is certainly none upon the
part of the people of the South.
They rocognize tho verdict settled
at Appomnttox?they accepted it
without reservation, and no section of
the country containo to day truer or
more loyal oitizons of our glorious lie
public. They object to bciug classed
aB traitors aud rebels, nnd this "mon
atrous pcrverbion of the truth" they
feel it a sacred duty to denounce, and
to resolve that history shall vindicate
tho Truth.

FoilTatss Moxa >K, Ya? May 2'J, 189j.
Editor of 'Hie Norfolk Virginian.
Your article in to day's issue, undor
tho heading of "Confederate Memorial
Day," 1 cuuuot pass unuoticed. Ab uu
oflioer of tho regular or my. serving for
many years on tbo stall' of ouo of its
most distinguished und gallant g'oue
ruls, with frequent opportunities of
recognizing the heroism and valor of
tbo Southern soldier, us woll us tho
suffering and solf douiul ami devotiou
of tho womeu of tbo South during tbo
war. 1 deeply doploro tbe piibhcutiou
of uuytbtug whioh may rouse any bit?
terness of feoliug between the North
aud tho South or eugeuder iu tbo
miuds of tho youths of tbo South sec?
tional uud disloyal prejudices. The
motto of h beneticioui and loyal
order of our soldiors of tbo Union
army is: "Fraternity, Charity aud
Loyalty." In tho spirit of these words
and recollecting that wo are now ouo
country, and that there should no
louger bo dissonsious betweeu thuso
who had honestly learned at thoir
mother's knees their opiuious, whether
tho Stute or the nation was supremo
motherland, tlie doctrine of Statu sov
ruignty or national supremacy, re?
spectively, for which Iho martyrs of
two contending armies died in battle.
1 would cull upon all our ex-sokiiers,
Federal und Confederate, to snuctily
(both to-tluy end to-morrow) Memoriul
Day, by clasping hands over the com?
mon graves of American soldiers.
Our strife was purely domestic, and I
utu sure that nil good men who curried
a musket or buckled ou a sword have
not the slightest desire to treasure its
hostilities, as if victory had been won
over n foreign foe, alien forever, for it is
unwise aud entirely subversive of the
tho great lesson of war for "a more
perfect Union."
As tho grand sires of Northern and
Southern meu stood shoulder to
shoulder a hundred years ago under
tbo eye of the great Virginia rebel who
bud no treason iu his soul, George
Washington; but the meu of Virginia
and tho South, forgetting later antago?
nisms stand side by side to houor tbe
graves of those over whom one Bag
floats forever. Both armies did their
best aud God decided between them.
Both were honestly in earnest. That a
perpectual union oaiinot be dissolved,
and that tho States withiu their limited
sphero ore tovoreign local govern?
ments, are the two immortal lessons of
tbe conflict. We are uow n uatiou of
Bretbern with ouo hupe, ouo flag, ono
destiny. Let us nil reverence the
graves of tho American national dead
and let Virginia sot the example of
fraternal charity,
John Bchuylbr Crosuv.
Night und Morning.
Low hanging In a eiuud of burnished gold,
The sleepy sun lay dreaming.
And where, pearl wrought, tho orient gutes
Wide ocean realms were gleaming.
Within the night hu rose and stolo away,
And, like a gen adorning,
Blazed o'er the sea upon th ? breast uf day
And everywhere was morning.

Practical Economists are wide awake to the great money-sav?
ing opportunities continually offered at this store. The phenominaliy
low prices in the various departments bring forth an increase of
customers every day in the week. The Clothing sold here passes
direct from the makers to the consumers without middlemen's profits.
This form of modern methods in retailing places the goods at Bed
Rock Manufacturer's Wholesale Prices on the retail distributive plan
and widens the scope to figure for volumes of trade at the smallest
