COL. WM. IT. STEWART. How HiB Lecture was Received by Ills Washington Audience. The Richmond Dispatch prints the following, sent it by its Washington correspondent: "Confederate Veterans' Hall, on Elev? enth street, northwest, was well lilled on Thursday ewenlug with a large, and, it might i>c said, fashionable audience, to hear the lecture of Colonel W||lln,m H. Stewart, of Portsmouth, Vn? on the 'Lifo und Character of Matthew Fon? taine Mnury.', Among those present was ex-Secretary of tit" Navy Herbert and ii number of lead ins ex-Confedo? rate and Federal odloi.-ils. Of the many lectures delivered before the Confede? rate Association of the District of Co? lumbia on Southern hcroi s und South? ern war tonics, this was, perhaps, the most eloquent and interesting, from a historical and scientific point "f view. "Colonel Stewart is :i gifted orator, and lie was warmly applauded from the beginning to the end of his mas? terly address. He w.is very nhich in? censed next day by finding In n re? port of tho lecture in a. city paper the word 'rebellion' made to appear in two or three instances, as if useii i>y him, ns a characterisation of the war be? tween the States. It is needless to nay lhat Colonel Stewart never made use of such an expression- it would have been contrary to every teaching and tradition of his life, as a Virginian and a gallant Southern soldier, for Colonel Stewart is one of the last men who would admit that tho war on the part Of the South was In any sense a rebel? lion."
