lie was in hisCJth year. II is favorite
sobriquet was 'Hero of tho Crater," won
by his wonderful courago in tho attack
on Petersburg when tho Federal forces
sprung a ruino beneath the Confederate
delensos. He fought like n tiger, and
later historians give to him almost alone
tho credit of keeping Petersburg from
Union hands by repairing before sunset
the shattered Confederate lines.
He had j lined the Confederate army
at once afier tbo secession, participating
in the capture of tho Norfolk navy yaid
in IStil, and raised and commanded tho
Sixth regimeut of Virginia. He was

March, ISO, and six months later be
came a major-general. At the close of
the w-tr he returned to his original work
of engineering, and becam" president of
the Norfolk & Tennessee railroad.
A spirit of leadership led him into the
political arena, and he at ooce assumed a
foremost position in the internal affairs
of Virginia, which was at that time laden
with an enormous debt that soon became
the issue of vital importance between the
political parties. He was elected to the
United Slates icnate in 1S79. He was like
a firebrand cast into a mass of dry tinder.
From the pecaliar attitude that he at I

An Unusual Sight.
A pretty sight was witnessed here just
after sundown 31onday evening by some
of our residents, who were fortunate in
being outdoors at that time, says the
Bandon Recorder. A large meteor shat
through the atmosphere to tho westward,
leaving its course marked by a cloud, or
streak' of smoke, that could be traced for
a long distance through tho atmosphere.
At point? along the zig-zag course, the
trail of the aerial visitant was much
more marked than other places, and
when the meteor seemed to go out or
disappear a small white disk-shaped
cloud, presenting rather a red-tinted
appearance, remained visible for 20 or
30 minutes after .he phenomenon made
its appearance. The track was zig-zag,
and looked as if tho meteor bad trav
ersed the air in a manner contrary to
that generally pursued by such phenom
