Note XI.-A PRISON SCENE,

as well as the touching poem the same author that precedes it, was written while Colonel Hawkins was a prisoner of war at Camp Chase. After a long and wearing imprisonment, the close of the war liberated him, only to see his “fair, sunny land” and die. But he will not be forgotten as long as his people love the poetry of true feeling.

Note XII.-" FALL IN THE BLASTING RAINS."

General Rains had charge of the torpedo and pyrotechnic department of the army.

Note XIII.-THE FANCY SHOT

has been claimed as a Northern poem. It was first published in ONCE A WEEK, as English property, but manuscript copies had for some time been in circulation in the South.

It is no strained image of the horrors of the civil war that the poem presents.
