Alcorn commanded one and Clark the other, and Rube Davis, as I remember, commanded the division. Now tell me, how is it that the Ninth Mississippi Regiment of the Con federate army was not the First? My 1 company March, 1861, by Richard Griffith of Jack son. afterward colonel of the Twelfth Regi ment. mustered here the 27th of As I understood, the order of the Con federate regiments First—Ninth—Chalmers, colonel.

Seventeenth—Feat herston, colonel. Eighteenth—Burt, colonel. Nineteenth—Mott, colonel—first mustered for the war. The above I remember, aud knew the colonels as well as many others personally. Borne of the eight first regiments—the two brigades referred to—as I remember, were sixty day enlistments. Were all of them such in the first instance? W troops—the army or the State? If I mis take not, Gen. A. M. West was chief quartermaster and commissary and Col. Jones 8. Hamilton was adjutant-general. How is it? Your friend. was: they State Wm. M. Strickland. In the Mississippi volume of the "Confederate Military History," recent published, this explains a matter that has not been understood by many others even as well informed as Major Strickland: On January 23, 1801, the Secession Convention adopted the following: An ordinauce to regulate the military sys tem of the State of Mississippi. Sec. 1. Be it ordained by the people of Mississippi in convention assembled, That one division of volunteers be early as ustered into ser practicable enlisted and vice by order of the Military Board, here inafter constituted, to serve until dis charged, consist of four brigades, each brigade to be coni]>osed of two regiments, aud each regi ment of ten companies of infantry or riflemen, and each company of not less than forty eight nor more than dred hereinafter provided, aud to hun ; and also not exceeding ten com panies of cavalry of not less than fifty men each, and not exceeding ten panies of artillery of not less than sixty each, and that the volunteers so listed shall not be the officers of the militia. bject in any manner Sec. 2. That the eight regiaieuts of in fantry or riflemen shall be raised as follows (here follows a list of the counties allotted each regiment. The companies of airy and artillery to be raised indiscrim inately from the 8tato at large). Thus it appears that agreeable to this ordinance eight regiments were to be raised within the State. This ordinance was adopted January 23, 1861. In March of the same year, some two months after, the first troops that went out from the State of Missis sippi went to Pensacola, Fla., and w< there numbered by Gen. Griffith. The passage of the ordinance was notice to all the world, certainly to Mississippians, that eight regiments— which of course would be numbered from one to eight—would be raised within the State. What natural than for Gen. Griffith to begin numbering the first troops that went out from the State as nine and ten? None of the eight regiments were "sixty day" troops. They were mus tered "to serve until discharged," and most of them got their discharge on bloody battle-fields and in army hos pitals. The sixty day men served out their enlistment in camp at Bowling Green, Ky., under Brig.-Gen. James L. Alcorn. In the first announced staff of the commander-in-chief, Gov. John J. Pet tus, Gen. W. L. Sykes^ was adjutant general. He was succeeded by Col. Wm. H. Brown, aud *he by Col. Jones Hamilton. These officers were tive, zealous and successful in organiz ing and equipping troops for service. vas more The Commercial Appeal, in referring to Bishop Gailor in a deservedly com plimentary way, speaks of liiia as a native of Memphi that he was born in Jackson, Miss. His father was in the >newspaper busi ness in Jackson from 1854 uutil the breaking out of the war, when ho re moved to Memphis, enlisted in the Confederate service, aud was killed at Berry ville. Our impression Death of Martin Rothschild. We note, with sincere regret, the death of Martin Rothschild, at his home in Woodville, on the 15th instant. He was one of the most benevolent and charitable When we visited Woodville we have ever known. some years ago, the principal of the public school told us that he had a standing order from Mr. Rothschild to furnish book* to all children who could not afford to buy them, llis talk and contribution to the children at. the orphan asylum in Natch «' "hen the grand lodge of p ythians paid that in8titution a visit , " iU not " on forgotten.

Power—The city schools at this plac* gladly co-operate with you and with the other schools of the State in selecting a State flower. The following is our vote: For Magnolia, 394; Cotton Bloom, 362. F. F. Phillips. Yours, State Flower—A Choice Expressed. The following is in response to a re quest from an expression from one who is excellent authority in floriculture: Columbus, Nov. 20, 1900. Dear Col. Power—My choice for the flower for Mississippi is the Maguolia. It is a typical Southern flower, while the Nar cissus and Chrysanthemum are not. The Yellow Jessamine or Calecauthus would tie more appropriate than the latter. They wild flowers of our State, as is also tho Magnolir. Please do not let the Chrysanthe mum or Narcissus be selected. Your friend. Maky B. Hakkisox. Roster of Field Officers. It should be understood that tho roster of field officers appearing from week to week was compiled in the War Record Department at Washington, and is made from such muster rolls and other documents as were found in Rich mond at the capture of that city April 3, 1805. Our special object in publish ing is to correct any mistakes and sup ply any omissions, so that when all this and other data may be placed on per manent record it may be approximately correct. We publish a correction by Col. W. II. Fitzgerald as to his own rank in the Twenty-first Regiment, and we have others on file. The merchants of Terry have signed and published an agreement to close their respective places of business on Thursday, November 29, 1900, "and stay closed the entire day." Thanks giving Day ought to be so fully and faithfully observed as not to require any formal agreement to "close the en tire day.' All public offices aud all places of business should be closed and thus express gratitude to our Divine Ruler, as well as respect for our earthly rulers. Secretary of State Power, in his weekly press article, makes the inter esting statement that there are three living members of the Legislature of 1846: Our venerable and esteemed coun tyman, ex-Justice Simrall, the Hons. J. S. Bailey of Tallahatchie and J. II. Thompson of Brook haven. Fi summit of their four-score years and more, what changes do these survivors of a vanished epoch look back upon.

The Prai rie Guards, of Crawford, in this county, have a printed pamphlet accounting for . Many of the counties, like every Adams, have gotten up the records of companies in permanent shape. A little system, and much perseverance, will uncover it all." When the roll of the next Congress is called three good and familiar names will not answer to Mississippi—T. C. Catchings, John M. Allen and Patrick Henry of the Seventh District; but others, of recogutzed capacity aud worth, will help to make our delegation equal to any of same number in the National House. The Slate Flower. Miss Jessie Riley, principal of Egypt school, writes: "As Mississippi is of the leading cotton States, why not include the Cotton Bloom in the list?" The list is not restricted—it is open to the entire floral kingdom, and the Cotton Bloom appears to have many favorites. The public roads of Yazoo countv are to be worked by contract, each beat to be worked separately. The Board of Supervisors at their meeting December 8 will receive bids for a term of four years from January 1, 1901. The Meridian fair opened Monday, the 20th, and was very successful in all departments. Lieut.

Dr. T0 Image Deplores the Prevail ing Spirit of Unrest. CbrlNtlnn Stability the Source of Use and Happiness— Val a Fixed Spirit dltlon. fulii >t il Con [Copyright, 1900, by Louis Klopsch.] Washington. From an unusual text Dr. Talmage in this discourse rebukes the spirit of unrest which characterizes so many people, and shows them the happiness and usefulness to be found in stability; text. Jeremiah2:36; "Why gaddest thou about so much to change thy way?" Homely is the illustration by which this prophet of tears deplores the vacil lation of the nation to whom he wrote. Now they wanted alliance with Egypt, and now with Assyria, and now with Babylon, and now they did not know' what they wanted, and the behavior of the nation reminded the prophet of a man or woman who, not satisfied with home life, goes from place to place, gad ding about, as we say, never settled anywhere or in anything, and he cries out to them: "Why gaddest thou about so much to change thy way?** Well, the world has now as many gad abouts as it had in Bible times, and I think that that race of people is more numerous now than it ever was. Gad abouts among occupations, among re ligious theories, among churches, among neighborhoods, and one of the greatest wants of the church and the world is more steadfastness and more fixedness of purpose. It was no small question that Pharaoh put to Jacob and his sons when he asked: "What is your occu pation?" pation not only d welfare, but destiny, worn stead*of asking God what they ought to be or do they, through some vain ambi tion or whimsicality, decide what they ought to be. Let me say to all young men and young women in homes or in school or college do not go gadding about among occupations and profes sions to find what you are fitted for, but make humble and direct appeal to God for direction.

Before you leave that room you will find out. But for the sake of your usefulness and happiness nnd your temporal and eternal welfare do not join that crowd of people who go gadding about among business and occupations, now trying this nnd now trying that and never accomplishing anything. Last summer a man of great genius died. He had the talents of 20 men in surgical directions, but he did not like surgery, and he wanted to be a preacher, lie could not preach. I told him so. He tried it on both sides of the sen, but he failed, because he turned his back on that magnificent profession of su. r gt*ry, which has in our time made such wonderful achieve ment that it now heals a broken neck and by the X ray explores the tem ple of the human body as if it were a lighted room.

Let all the gadabouts for happiness know that in kindness nnd usefulness and self-abnegation are to be found a sat isfaction which all the gayetie* of the world aggregated cannot afford. Among the race of gadabouts are those who neglect their homes in order that they may attend to institutions that are really excellent and do not so much ask for help as demand it.

By all means let Chris •omen foster charitable institu tions and give them time os they can spare, but the first duty of that mother is the duty she owes to her home. But no one can take a mother'* place, and it is an that mother ■makes home duties for any church meeting, however ian mucb of their rful mistake that who sacrifices important, or any hospital, however merciful, or any outside benefi cence, however glorious and grand. Not understanding this, when we try to give statistics as to ho many Christiana there a churches and in the world. We un derstate the facts. We look over our church audiences on the Sabbath or mistake in our eek service and conch !e that ir they represent the amount of piety in that neighborhood. Oh.no!
