hJe * In-n- W MtthI t
Convention Between the Confeder
ate States of America and the
State of Missouri.
Whoereas,1t is the common desire
of the Confederate States of America
and the State of Missouri, that said
State should become a member of the
Confederacy; and whereas, the ac
.complishment of their purpose is now
prevented by an armed invasion of
the territory of said State by the
United States; and whereas, the in
terests of both demand that they
should make common cause in the
war waged by the United States
against the liberties of both:
Now, therefore, for these most de
sirable objects, the President of the
Confederate States of America has
conferred full powers on R. M. T.
Hunter, their Secretary of State, and
the Executive power of the State of
Missouri on Edward Carrington Ca
bell and Thomas L..Snead, who, af
ter having exchanged their full pow
ers in due and proper form, have
agreed to the following articles:
ART. 1. TheState of Missouri shall
be admitted into said Confederacy on
an equal footing with the other States
ccmposing the same, on the fulfill
ment of the conditions set forth in
the. second section of the act of the
Congress of the Confederate States,
entitled "An act to aid the State of
Missouri in repelling invasion by the
United States, and to authorize the
admission of said State as a member
of the Confederate States of America,
and for other purposes," approved
August 20, 1861..
ART. 2. Until said State of Mis
souri shall become a member of said
Confederacy, the whole military force,
material of war and military opera
tions, offensive and defensive, of said
State, shall be under the chief con
trol and direction of the President of
the Confederate States, upon the
same basis, principles and footing as
if said State were now and during
the interval a member of said Con
federacy-the State force, together
with that of the Confederate States,
to be employed for the common de
A-I. 3. The State of Missoluri
will, whenever she becomes a mem
ber of said ConLtderacy, turn over to
said Confeiderate States all the public
property, naval stores and munitions
of war of which she may trien he in
possession, acquired from the United
States-excepting the public loan
on the same terms and in the manner
as the other States of said Confed
eracy have done in like cases.
ART. 4. All expenditures for the
prosecution of the existing war, in
curred by the State of Missouri from
and after the date of the signing of
this Convention, shall be met and
provided for by the Confederate
ART. 5. The alliance hereby made
between the said Cuonfederate States
and the State of Missouri, shall be
offensive and defensive, and shall be
and remain in force during the exist
ing war with the United States, or
autil superceded by the adlmission of
said State into the Confederacy, and
shall take effect from the date: hiereof,
according to the provisions of the :lta
section of the aforesaid act, approved
August 20, 1861.
In faith whereof, we, the Commis
sioners of the Confederate States of
America and of the State of Missouri
have signed and sealed these presents.
Done, in duplicate, at the city of
Richmond, on the 31st day of October,
in the year of our Lord, one thousand
eight hundred and sixty-one.
S(Signed,) R. M. T. H=UNTnR,
TuoMAs L. SNsaD.
To Remove a Crystal .Stopper fron
a Decanter.-Drop a little oil with a
feather between the stopper and neck
of the decanter, holding it near the
fire, and working the stopper about,
or at least endeavoring to do so.
This plan is sure to succeed, with
Tomato TVine.-Superior. wine is
said to be made from the tomato,
with no other ingredients than the
pure juice of the tomato and sugar,
which very much resembles Cham
pagne, and has a light transparent
color, with a pleasant brisk flavor.
Broiling Beefsteak.--lrnise till
very tender, then put over -a good
bed of coals for a few minutes.
When cooked a little, take it off,
dredge slightly with flour, and but
ter will finish the working, then add
half a cup.oPcold coffee to the gravy,
and you will find a gravy good en
ough for any of your liege lords.
.Cure for Chilblains and Frosted
Feet.-Apply common tar to the parts
affected, and bind it up with cloth,
so as not to interfere with wearing
the stocking. Wear this four days
or a week. This 1 know is a cure.
through it does not cost much.
