The words of one who has lived so well, fought so well and done so much to save the fair name of the South from inomy and shame will always be heard with reverence aud respect by a Southern audience. The op pressive heat prevented aj Jarfce gathering: at the Baptist' church Thursday evening, but! those who braved the heat heard j with interest the address deliv-j ed by General Stephen D. Lee j ou his impressions, religious and moral, of the late He-union at Nash ivi lie. In beginning his address Gen eral Lee referred to the great four years struggle and gave statistics compiled by the Sec retary of the Interior showing the number of battles and skir mishes fought during the Civil War. The figures were appall ing showing a total of 0370 bat tles and skirmishes fought, out of which 2220 were pitched bat tles in which over 1000 men were engaged. General Lee then re ferred touchingly to the number slain. At the close of the war out of the (300,000 Confederate soldiers entered fully 800,000 had met death in some form. The Union loss was less in pro portion to the number of men engaged. General Lee spoke eloquently of the Re-uniou, the hospitality of the people, the emotions caused by the sight of the rem nants of that army that once fought for the glory of the South and in defeat were not cast down, the thought that in a few years this body of men who had been tried and purified in the crucible of misfortune and defeat would in a few years rest under the sod. Taking each day in order General reviewed the events of the Re-union, touching lightly on the proceedings of Tuesday when he himself received a touching tribute of the love with which he is held in the hearts of the entire South. The presence of Mrs. Gordon with her two daughters, and the effect produced on the body of men who loved and serv ed General Gordon so well, was touchingly re-told. In closing General Lee :s poke of the seeming purging from the hearts of the assembled veterans of all feelings of hate for the Northern soldier, a sentiment that wouid indicate that-trials, reverses, and defeat in a cause that was known to be just, were only the tires that purified the indomitable South ern soldier. For the occasion a suitable! t musical programme had been prepared and was well rendered. Rev. A. J. Miller, pastor of the church inclosing the services paid a glowing tribute to a man who had fought to uphold the name of the old South, aud when the shadow of defeat and ruin spread over the land, did not Hindi from the issues that con fronted him but lent his energies in building up the new South. Just here a short sketch of Gen. Lee's war record will not be out of place. General Stephen D. Lee, present commander of the United Confederate Veterans' organization, aud successor to the lamented General J. B. Gordon, is a native of Charleston, S. C. He descends from a line of revolutionary patriots and statesmen. IJis grand father, William Lee, was one of forty prominent citizens of Charleston, whose devotion to the continental cause, was punished by imprison ment. His rrandfather, Thomas Lee, was appointed United States district judfre by President Monroe. General S. D. Lee graduated from West Point with the highest honors. He resigned from the United States army in 1861, and was commissioned captain in the Confederate army of the Confederacy, and assigned to duty as aide de camp to General Beauregard. He and Colonel Chestnut bore the summons to Major Anderson for the surrender of Fort Sumpter, and gave subsequent notice of the opening of bombardment. After the surrender of Fort Sumter, he took command of the light battery of Hamptom's legion, which was the commencement of his unparallelled career as an artillery officer of the Confederacy, and he so distinguished himself that lie received rapid promotions to major, lieutenant colonel, colonel, brigadier general. He served under General Johnston in the Peninsular campaign and Seven Pines, and with General Jt. K. Lee at Savage station and Malvern hill. At the battle of second Manassas, in command of the artillery, his ligbt in was so gallant, judicious and ef fective that President Davis declared. "1 have reason to believe that Colonel Lee served to turn the tide of battle and to him is due the victory." Just after the battle of Sharpsburg, General 11. E. Lee was asked by Presi dent Davis to select the most ellicieut artillery otiieer for duty on the Mis sissippi, and he named S. D. Lee. The conditions on the Mississippi riv er demanded the most skillful leader ership. General Lee was assigned to commai d at VLcksburg. He was pro moted to the rank of lieutenant gener al at the age of 31 years. He defeated Sherman's advance in December, 1S(J2, and met Grant in the following May at Champions hill, where his personal gallantry was ad mired by and enthused his whole army. After the fall of ' Vicksburg he was exchanged, and on August 3, lSf:, was put in command of all the cavalry in Mississippi, Alabama, West Ten nessee and East Louisiana. In this field lie and General Forrest prevent ed Sherman's advance to Meridian. After other engagements he took command of Hood's corps of the army at Atlanta. In the desperate tfghting at Nashville he held Overton hill against the enemy until after the left and center of the army were driven back, and his was the only or ganization intact. He covered the re treat of the army, repulsing every effort of Wilson's cavalry from dawn till late night. During that day Gen eral Lee was severely wounded, but lie remained in command of his corps until he participated in the capitula tion of Johnston's army. Siuce the war General Lee has been active in efforts to promote the pros perity of the South. He has served as State senator and member of Mis sissippi constitutional convention. Where, in Federal or Confederate army, will we find such a brilliant soldier and statesman'? Effective in every branch of the army, and when peace came his State ami beloved South have been ever ready to place the laurel wreath upon his brow. The old soldiers love him as none other now living, for his record is like Caesar's wife above suspicion. Like General II. E. Lee, he assumed the presidency of a great institution of learning. He loves and is beloved by all with whom ho ever came in contact. Worst cf AH Expericncas. Can anything be worse than to feel that every minute will be your last? Such was the experience of Mrs. S.
