and afterwards sending hin to the
Harvard University Law School. Uo

Mexican war broko out. Uo dropped
his studies, enlisted as a private in
Caleb Cushing's Massachusetts regi

AN ENGAGEMENT WITH MIC LINCOLN
THAT MIGHT HAVE SAVED
Iawj Branch Letter to rntlaaelpttta Times.
"Had President Lincoln kept an en
gagement ho made with mo ho might
perhaps bo living still, ' said Mr. Kan
dall, of New .York, formerly of St.
Louis, tho other evening. Mr. Ran
dall is tho father of Mrs. Garrison and
tho conversation took placo on tho
piazza of her residenco here. When
urged to tell the story of, how this
could be, he mentioned that during the
lattor part of tho winter of 1 865 he,
knowing tho stato of affairs in the part
of Missouri within tho rebel lines and
in tho adjacent States, whero Kirby
Smith, witli 20,000 men, was only held
in check and kept from making raids
by 00,000 men of tho Union army,and,
being awaro that Kirby Smith and his
men, having had no pay or clothing
issued to them for six months, wero
maddened by tho knowledgo of the
necessities of their wives, children,
mothers and sisters, who wero actually
barefooted as well as otherwise scant
ily clothed, thought that ho would try
by peaceable means to rid that part of
tho country ot smith and his men and
prevent their making any moro raids.
Tins ho sought to do by getting per
mission for Union men- to buy their
cotton, which he knew was packed
ready for sale, and permitting the des-
tilnto Southerners to buy tho neccssi
tics of life in return.
Ho opened negotiations with Presi
dent Lincoln at Washington through
"Dick'' Yates, who at one time was
Governor of Illinois, and represented
to him tho wiso polioy of adopting tho
plan ho proposed, for bo said there
wero no other Confederates in arms in
that part of the country, and ho felt
convinced the plan ho urged would ef
fectually dispose of Smith and his men,
and that monoy to buy tho necessaries
of llfo procured by tho sale of cotton
and tho opportunity given to purchase
such supplies would, he thought, con
vert somo of them into good Union
men, whllo it would induce all to ceaso
raiding. "And if you do not buy their
cotton," Mr. Kandaii plead, "they will
burn it as soon as they see federal
troops approaching to seize it. It is
ready alike for safo or for tho torch."
lie went to seo l'rcaident J.incoIn tin
ally himself, and succeeded in convinc
ing him of tho wisdom of tho proposed
plan and secured tho necessary permit
to stock a boat with supplies and to
send it and purchasers of cotton to pro
per points on tho Mississippi wbenco
negotiations might bo opened for the
purchase ot the ootton so much needed
in Northern factories and for tho salo
of food and clothing to tho starving,
All seemed likely to go well, tho boat
was duly fitted up and stockod at great
cxpenso and started on her trip, but
unfortunately delays woro mado by tho
naval omccrs commanding our squad
ron on tho Mississinni and bv armv of-
ficers guarding posts on land, and tho
vessel was not allowed to proceed
lunally, niter many attempts to set
matters right, Mr. Randall determined
to go to Washington again, see Mr,
Lincoln, Stanton and Wells and send
tho boat which had already cost a largo
sum to its destination. President Lin
coln first mado an appointment to seo
Mr. Randall at tho White House on
Friday cvoning, April 14, 1805, and
tho lattor was about to take a train
from Now York, whither ho had gone,
to Washington to keep tho engagement
when ho received a telegram saying
that the President proforrod to post
pone tho conversation until Saturday
evening, because ho wished lo havo
time, when it took place, to talk at
length with Mr. Randall and on Fri
day ho wished to go seo Laura Iveeno
in "Our American Cousin.''
So Mr. Randall Btarted from Now
York Friday night lo keep tho engage
ment for Saturday evening, and on
leaching Baltimore next morning was
amazed to find his train under arrest,
tho order having been issued to allow
no trains to leave that city in any di
rection, and wai appalled to learn that
tho cause of this was tho assassination
of President Lincoln in Washington
tho previous night.

REMINISCENCES Ol' JEFF
LIFE AT FOUTKESS
Major John S. Stephens- recently ro
lated the following incident connected
with Jeff Davis imprisonment at
"About tho middlo of May, 1805,
considerable excitement was occasioned
at tho fortress by tho receipt of orders
from the War Department that the
post should prepare tho casoment for
tre reception ot prisioners ot war.
Tho order was promptly carried out,
and on May 19 tho steamer William
P. Clyde steamed up Hampton Roads,
having on board Jefferson Davis and
Clemet C. Clay. Sho oarao to anchor
off tho Fortress, nnd I was ono of tho
first officers of tho garrison to visit tho
distinguished prisioner. K was neces
sary to issuo very strict orders for the
government of tho soldiers. Many of
them had suffered tho horrors of South
ern prisons, and tho news of President
Lincoln's assassination was fresh in
their minds. The namo of Davis was
closely associated in their minds with
all the sufferincs and privations of tho
long campaign, and tho crimes and .in
dignities against tbo (iovcinment.
Only tho opportunity was lacking to

ox-rrceident. Any ono ot tho men
would havo shot him down at sight,
oven had ho Known ho would swing
for it tho next moment.
"Davis was accompanied by his wifo
and children and Mrs. Clay was with
her husband. Mrs. Clay was extreme
ly solicitous and roquestod tho officers
to treat him kindly. He, too, was
pleasant and courteous in his manner.
Mr. Davis was morose and cold in his
demeanor. Ho was much dejected and
refused to talk. lie was suiter-
iug from neuralgia, which had depriv
ed bun partially ot bis oycsight and
was besides halt crazy trom dyspep
"Tho prisioners wero permitted to
stay on ship-board lor three days with
their families, but on May 22 Charles
A. Dana, assistant Secretary ot War,
mado preparations to bring them
ashore. A strong lino of sentries was
stationed about the fortress, but at
points whenco it was impossible to seo
Davis when Iiq landed. Col. Pritch
ard wont aboard and led Davis out,
after permitting him to tako leavo of
his wile, immediately on landing
Gen. Miles took chargo of tho prisionor
nnd led him into tho fortress by way
of tho water battery postern, Pritch
ard'e guard forming an impenetrable
lino on either tide. At tho entrance
of tho fortress tho inner guard escort
ed him to a cell fitted up for him in
tho gun room.
"Extra precautions wero taken to
mako this cell secure from tho possiblo
raids by reliof parties. Tho cmbrasuro
was heavily barred; and an array blank
et hung inside to keep out tho light.
Davls'e bed a hospital cot was plao
cd beneath tho embrasure. Tho dooi
opening into tho gun-rocm was also
heavily barred. A sentinel was lock
ed In tho cell with tho prisioner, while
just outside tho door an officer of tho
guard was stationed to watch the sent
iiicl. In front of tho gratod embra
sure was stationed an extra guard of
thiity armed sentries.
"Strict orders wero issued tegarding
the treatmont of Davis. Ho was allow
ed no reading matter except the Biblo
and prayer book. His food, a regular
army ration, consisted of coffee with
out milk for breakfast, with a lump of
broad; salt beef, bread and coffeo for
dinner and coffeo and hardtack for sup
per. Ho was allowed no knlfo or fork
lest l o should attonipt suicide. As ho
wan ill with dsypepsia nnd had for a
long time boen nblo to cat nothing but
tho daintiest lood, this rough met was
nauseating. Ho didn't attempt to cat,
and wont without food for several days.
Ho was getting a praclioal inkling of
tho way Union soldiers suffored in tho
Southorn prisons, although tho food
offered him was sumptuous compared
with that given the latter.
"About tins timo an incident occur
red Illustrating his bitterness toward
tho North, Ilo was so ill that Dr.
Bancroft was sent to prcsclbo for him.
" 'Whero nro you lrotn T ho asiceti

"So Dr. Craven attended tho arch
rebel and found him really ill.
Tho monotonous tramp, tramp ot
scntiucl, pacing up and down his cell,
annoyed Davis, iio hrst glared at
him angrily and then requested him to
stop walking. Tho Bcntry had orders
not to speak to tho prisioner, so no
said nothing, but continued his meas
ured tread. At last Davis became ox
asperated,and, rushing upon tho sold
ier, attempting to wrest tho musket
"This conduct was promptly report
ed and soon an order camo from Wash
ington directing that Davis bo put in
irons. Tho ordor was executed at
once. Blacksmiths camo to tho cell
and, instead of using tho oommon stylo
of clasp shackles, the old-fashioned
chain and broad bracelet wero brought
and tho smith preceded lo fasten them
on with rivets.
" 'By whoso order is this outrago
perpetrated asked Davis, trembling
with rage, his gaunt face livid with
passion. 'I protest; I will not submit
to this indignity,' and Davis caught a
hammer from ono ot tho men and
would havo smashed the blacksmith s
skull if a soldier had not caught his
"Capt. Titlow who had charge of
tho ironing, said: Mr. Davis, I am a
soldier acting under orders from my
superior officer. You. loo, aro a soldier
and know as well as t mat tno order
will bo carried out, whether you sub
mit quietly or resist.1
" 'Does President Johnson know of
this !' groaned Mr. Davis, as ho sat
down upon his cot and permitted the
smiths to rivet tho shackles. It was
generally understood that Secretary
Dana was instrumental in securing tho
issuance of tho order.
"Tho restraint of tho irons proved
very galling to Davis. His humiliation
was complete. But a few weeks bo
foro ho was tho head of tho Confoder-
ato Government nnd Commander-in-Chief
of all tbo Southern armies,
Now ho was chained to a hospital cot
in a 'Yankco' prison, unablo to rcmovo
his clothing or oven lie down in com
fort. It may bo his mind rovorted to
tho 'nigger markets' of his cherished
but 'peculiar institution,' whero tho
clankling of chains mingled with tho
wails of human cattle. Whatever was
tho nature of his reflections, the ex-
President sat lor hours after tho black
smiths left, his head bowed upon his
hands and the tears trickling through
"For fivo days and nights Davis
woro tho irons, but tho Burgeon saw
that ho wa3 chafing himself to death.
It would be poor polioy for tho illus
trious prisoner to dio in conscquenco of
Northern treatment ; hence tho shack
les wero removed.
"On tho 5th of October, about five
months after his arrival at Fortress
Monroe, Davis was removed to Carroll
Hall, when comfortable quarters wero
given him and ho was permitted to
read books. During his closo conhno
ment, witli no ono to converse with, ho
relieved tho tedium by studying tho Biblo
tho only book or reading matter save
tho prayer-book allowed him, till ho
was probably tho best informed man
on scriptural topics in the wholo South
Ho admitted that his imprisonment
had mado him a better Christian. The
pity is it didn't come before instead of
after tho war.
"From Carroll Hall Davis was ro
moved to Richmond, and soon after
was bailed out of prison in the sum of
