I have been making an extended trip through the South and everywheve the sentiment is expressed and applauded : "The war is over- the result final." Some of the pleasantest chats I have had have been wlth confedérale soldiers andoneventsinwhich, we were both actors. I fought in the union army and tried to do my duty, andnow thatthe union party has passed into the hands of stay-at-home warriors whose bravery consiste in shouting and waving thebloody shirt, I would cry to all such "peceavi." and now I hope to ïelp hury them deep and for KOod, and over their grave write "No Resurrectton."
