Colortd Troops in the Struggle For Liberty—A Detailed Account of Their Presence and Participation in Closing Scenes of the Bebel-lion—The Boston •*Advocate Corrected— The Amerioan Catholic Tribune Sustained- It will be remembered by our readers that we said in a former issue of this paper that the colored man fired the last gun at Appomatox, We have in course of preparation a review of a book—“The Negro in the Rebellion”—which is or should be in every library in the United States. As it requires some time to search the records, we have not been able as yet to present this review to the public, we have delayed answering several articles iisputing the statement that the Negro •lid fire the lust gun in that memorable battle. The able AdvocaU, published in the historical village of Boston, took up the matter and handled in a manner that provoked a lengthy letter from Mr. Edwin Jourdian, Boston University School of of Law to the New Y’^ork Freenxan. In this edition we give the whole matter, comment and letter. In a recent issue of the American Catholic Ttibdne, wserting that a colored man fired the last gun. at the Appomattox, we jokingly called upon the Trib-ONE for a “dose of proof,” and this is the way we were answered :—Boston Advocate. “Our authority is one of General Sheridan's staff, now a resident of Boston, Hunt him up If you can’t find him there Hsk Mr, Lewis Hayden for his address.— American Catholic Tribune. The whole truth is, Brother Rudd, that the colored troops in the Army of the .Tames constituted the 18th corps. A re->rganization of array corps took place the latler part of the year of ’64. Under the (icw’ assignments the 25th corps were created, and General Geodfrey Weitzel was placed in command. This corps was in pK)sition on the right bank of the James, and at the fall of Richmond were the first lo enter the city, and they remained in occupation. These constituted the bulk of ••olored soldiers in Grant's army, with the exception of those divisions attached to the lOth corps, under General Terry in North Carolina. General Sheridan had command of the cavalry forces, of whom none were colored. A part of the fifth army corps were was also well up in support; ihese were also white troops. No colored troops were engaged in tf>e final struggle, and none were immediately present at the surrender of Appomatbtx. Then how could they have fired the last shot ? YVe are by no means discrediting the everlasting fame made by the brave colored troops during the rebellion, but we certainly do not care for empty honors. The colored soldiers do not usk for it.—Boston Advocate. Mr. Jourdain to the’new york free MAN : An editorial appeared in the Boston Advocate of Feb. 26th, denying that the colored troops fired the last gun at Appomattox, or that they were there at all. The Advocate asserts that they “are by no means discrediting the everlasting fame made by the colored troops in the rebellion. ’ Now they are deliberately discrediting the fame of our colored heroes in the closing scenes around Appomatox; and, in our estimation, are inexcusably culpable for making such an erroneous and unwarranted statement, with ample facilities at hand to ascertain the truth in the matter. The colored man has been the Alpha and Omega of this country’s struggle for liberty. The first blood shed in the Revolution, the first martyr to the cause of freedom was Crispus Attacks, a Negro, who w’ith four companions sealed his devotion to liberty with his life in the Boston Massacre, March 5, 1770. “From this moment,’ says Daniel Webster, “we may date the severance of the British Enipire;” and from this moment we may date the commencement of that mighty and finally sanguinary contest for American liberty, (and now I use the phrase in the fullest, highest sense, regardless of race or color), which was to find its consummation ninety-five years later in that final victorious charge of the black phlanx at Appomatox, April 9, 1865. Crispus Attacks—Appomattox. How they rhyme! By reference to the Statistical Record of the Armies of the United States compiled by Lieut. Chas. C. L. Totten, L^. S. A., we fiud that the army of the James consisted in the latter part of '62 of the 10th and 18tb army corps (mixed colored and white brigades) and cavalry under command of Gen. Butler. On Dec. 3, 1864, these corps were discontinued, and the colored troops of the Department of Virginia and North Carolina were organized into a corps and denominated the 25th Army Corps, Major-Gen Weitzel in command; discontinued Jan. 6, 1866. On the same date the white troops of tbe 10th and 18th Corps were constituted into the 24 Army Corps Major Gen. E. 0.*C. Ord commanding. On April 8 and 9 wo find the troops engaged at Appomattox to have been the 24th Corps, one division of 25th Corps (colored) and Sheridan’s Cavalry, The Advocate also says none of the cavalry were colored. The 1st Brigade (Col. Robt. West) of McKenzie’s Army of James Cavalry was present and was colored, and did some hard fighting. The colored troops present were 2d Division of the 25th Corps, formerely commanded by General Birney. It consisted of three brigades of several regiments each. Now how did this division of colored troops happen to be at App<*mattox and thus share in the fadeless glory of being in at the,death of the Confederacy ? After the rebel defeat at Five Forks and the fall of Petersburg, Weitzel, who was in front with the 25th Corps was ordered to take Richmond as soon as the enemy evacuated. Grant held one division of this famous corps in reserve, and on finding that Richmond was occupied without resistance, hurried this diviison forward lo join in the pursuit of Lee’s shattered and flying forces. They were in the fights at Salem Creek, Farmville, etc., where for the first time Lee’s army met the army under Grant in open field, and where occurred some of the most desperate fighting of the war. The rebels closely environed and brought to bay, fought like demons, but to no avail. Major-General Ord, wit tbe 24th Corps of this division of colored troops, was at Prince Edward, when Grant ordered him to push forward, out march Lee’s army and join Sheridan, who was in fnintof Lee ready to intercept him. Now came the raca for íife or death of the Confederacy. Lee was straining every nerve to reach Johnson and unite their forces ; Grant must prevent this and bring rebellion to and end. Ord’s troops had been fighting and marching for about six consecutive days, but he immediately got into line and marched them from daylight on April 8 to daylight on April 9, only allowing them three hour’s rest. It was a fearful march, yet they did it. Meanwhile Sheridan, according to arrangement, had attacked Lee’s front to gain time for Ord to come up. Gibbon’s artillery opened on the ConftKierates, but still on they came. It was Longstreet’s command, the flower qf the Southern army, and they pressed on exultingly, forcing back Sheridan’s dismounted troopers, and anticipating an easy victory, little dreaming that any of Grant’s infantry could have outstretched them and gain their front. Sheridan, restless and anxious, sent back, urging Ord to hasten forward ; his troops cannot longer stand before the advance of the desperate army of Lee. Ord appeared in the dusty distance, his troops enter the woods; with scarce time to breathe they reform, and just as Gen. Gordon and his Tigers, flushed with victory and yelling like demons, dashed forward to annihilate Sheridan, they crnergo from the woods. Sheridan s battalions gladly seek a refuge in their rear, and the O^nfederates are confronted, not by a weak line of dismounted cavalrymen, but three solid columns of infantry, veritable walls of bristling steel. In heavy phalanx, with ringing cheers, the boys in blue, black and white move forward. The effect is magical ; it is as though a bolt from the clear heavens had struck the Confederates. They forget to fire, “their line rolls hack, wavering and staggering with the certainty that they were doomed.” Ord's three columns move forward now at double quick, they cover the valley and all adjacent hills; while Sheridan’s remounted troopers sw’ung around the rebel rear and prepared to charge. Hemmed in on ail sides. Grant advancing with all his forces, a moment more and the remnant of Lee’s array will be swept from the earth. But a white flag appears, Lee asks for cessation of hostilities, and the war for the Union is at an end. On April 9 Lee surrenders his army and on the I2th the Army of the Potomac and Army of the James received the formal surrender of the Army of "Virginia and delivering of arms, etc. Thus nobly did the colored troops perform their part in the thrilling closing act of rebellion and the destruction of slavery. On the 26 of May, 1805, Kirby Smith surrendered the last organized Confederate force, and the very last battle between organized Confederate and Federal forces was an engagement between the 62d U. S. troops (colored) and the rebels at Palmetto Ranch, Texas, on Mrfy 13, 1865. I have heard Gen. Black-mar (a member of Sheridan’s staff) state that when ho saw those “black boys in blue” coining up in such gallant style to the relief of tl:e hard pressed and nearly surrounded cavalry ut Appomattox, he could have hugged them for joy and gratitude ; and he said he never saw men go into a<'tion in cooler and better form. effective strength or ar.my. “The following table prepared by Lieut.

Our Unole Sam Is Oompauratively WeU Off. Pour First - Class Powers Rxceed Her in Piling Up Indebtedness. Washington, March 16. -The worry that Is being indulged in just now by some people about the fact that our public debt is being paid faster than was anticipated when the loans were made, and the talk of buying in the bonds before they are due, lends interest to some facts about the National debt and its comparison with that of other nations. It is estimated that the close of this fiscal year will find the three per cent, bonds all paid up. There will then be left two lota of bonds yet to be paid to clear the National debt incurred by the war. One of these is a bunch of four-and-a half per cent, bonds that are payable on or after 1891, four years hence. These four-and-a-half per cent, represent two hundred and fifty million dollars. The other bunch of bonds outstanding amounts to seven hundred and thirty-seven million, bearing four per cent, interest and are not payable until 1907. These two lot of bonds will cover the entire interest-bearing debt of the country, after the few remaining three per cents, are paid off ninety days hence. There is also a debt of five hundred millions, bearing no interest, and composed mostly of greenbacks and gold and silver certificates, but as there is cash in the Treasury to nearly balance this debt, aud no prospect that these obligations will be presented for payment, this can scarcely be counted, as in reality, a part of the public debt. By the close of the present fiscal year, June 80, the public debt, “less cash in the treasury,” will be just about a round billion of dollars. This is a good deal of money, but a very small sum compared with the condition of the debt tw'enty-two years ago. Then the debt less the cash in the treasury w’as nearly threo billions. It was at that timo $78 per capita for the population of the country, and the annual interest W’as $4 29 i>er head; now the debt is only about twenty dollars per capita and the annual interest charge 84 cents per head. If we could go on paying off this debt at once, it would only take about ten years at the present rate of the surplus to wipe it out entirely. A debt of a billion dollars seems a good deal, yet it is a small one, not only compared with what we had twenty years ago, but also small compared with that of some of our neighbors of the world. There is Italy, for instance, her debt is two and one-fourth billions, and her per capita rate is $80 <jf her population. Russia’s debt is three and one-half billions, and the per capita $30. Great Britain’s debt is three and three-fourths billions dollars, making the per capita rate over $100 each of the population. The debt of France Is over six billions, or tUe? i*or capita of her population. Our heathen neighbors on the west, the much reviled Chinese, set a good example in this regard, as their debt amounts to about ten cents per capita of the population, w’hile Persia, in the far cast, has no debt.      •_ A Prehistoric Image. YVashington, * March 10.—The Easter Island image, secured by Lieutenant Stone, of the “Mohican,” for the Smithsonian Institute, is on its W’ay here.
