Washington, D. C, January 9.!
M. H; Clark, of Clarksville, Term., who
Was acting treasurer of the so-called
Confederate States of America, when
the collapse came, has written letter,
under date or January oui,wepre(
sentative House, of Tennessee, in which
he sets forth the facts about the treas
ure lost when Jeff Davis was captured.
Mr. Clark says:
"As I am in a position to know all
the facts, I think it not improper to
state them as briefly as lean. I left
Bichmond, Va ,the night of the evacu
ation on the special train containing
the president, his staff, his caDinec ana
many other government officials, being
at the time chief and confidential clerk
of the executive office. The party
reached Danville the next day, where
the government offices were partially
organized, remaining there until the
10th of April, when news of General
Lee's surrender was received. The
next move was to Greensboro, the
headquarters of Beauregard's little
"A stay of some days was made there,
and as the railroads had been cut In
many places south of us by the Fede
ral eavalry, who were still raiding to
the southwest of our line of travel, I
made up a train of wagons and ambu
lances for the use of the party, for
which General Beauregard gave a carte
blanche order on his quartermaster and
commissary aepartmems, wim wmcn
train the party proceeded to Charlotte,
N. C. General Beauregard also ordered
up the small cavalry division under
Oaneral W. C. P. Breckehridge. as an
escort, to which President Davis de
murred possibly for the reason that
he did not want the small force in front
of General Sherman weakened to give
him personal protection but finally
consented, as it gave protection to his
following, which was composed partly
of helpless civilians, but even then
avoided the road taken by his escort.
"After a stay of about a week at
Charlotte, where we heard of the as
sassination of President Lincoln, the
route was to Abbeville, South Carolina,
reaching there the 3rd of May. At Ab
beville the train of the treasury de
partment reported, it having followed
a HiflWPTir. Una of travp 1 under the pro
tection of the small force under Admi
ral Semmes, who had guarded it faith
fully, keeping all its valuables intact
This was the first time we bad met, and
at Abbeville the trains, escort and all,
came together. Admiral Semmes
asked to be relieved of his voluntarily
assumed duty (which had been neces
sary, as General Stoneman's cavalry
had several times struck points within
ten or fifteen miles of these different
trains, moving in the main on parallel
lines), and the train was placed in
charge of the cavalry General Basil
Duke's command and ordered fa
Washington, Ga. V
"General Trenholm, secretary of tha
treasurv. had been left some distanc
back, auite ill. and at Abbeville, t
President appointed Postmaster-Gen1
ral John H. Reagan acting secretary
the treasury. The treasurer, Mr. J.
Herndon, had been lett at Greensboro,
N. C with a moderate military chest
for the use of the army there, the spe
cie, mainly Mexican dollars, and
amounting to $40,000, according to my
recollection. That night, the weather
being hot for day traveling, the presi
dential party also left for Washington,
Ga, arriving about sunset on the 4th of
Mav. As soon as we arrived Mr. xtea-
gan, acting secretary of the treasury,
asked the president to appoint me act
ing treasurer in place of Mr. Herndon,
who had been left At Greensboro, N.
C, the treasury since that time having
been in charge of the bureau offcers. I
had some time before received a staff
appointment, with the rank of captain.
"The president made the appoint
ment, Mr. Reagan drew up my com
mission, and President Davis affixed to
it the last official signature he ever
made. I, of coarse, preserve it as a
nrecious relic. The entire treasury
was turned over to me-, and 1 spent a
day in filliBg the requisitions of the
actintr secretary. I settled with the
depositors, who had followed with the
train some all the way from Virginia;
I paid off the naval brigade, through
Postmaster Wheeless, of Nashville;
paid off the troops who were near us,
through the proper accredited officers ;
burnt millions" of bonds and currency
in the presence of Secretary Reagan
and General J. C. Breckenridge, secre
tary of war; turned over to the Vir
ginia bank officers the specie which be
longed to the Virginia banks, which
they had never been able to obtain
from the treasury for want of proper
officers to deliver it. One of my last
acts was to turn over to Major Moses, a
Confederate States agent, 840,000 in
silver, mainly bullion, which the presi
dent had ordered to be used in furnish
ing subsistence to the paroled soldiers
who were passing through to their
homes, thus relieving them and the dis
tressed country through which they
MI took proper receipts for all my
payments, and with the whole treasury
disbursed, except an insignificant sum,
in company with the acting secretary,
I left Washington about eleven 'clock
at night, with a small escort given us
by General Duke, which we shortly
dismissed, and joined the president's
partynext morning about day-break.
There I again took charge of my tfain,
and on the morning of the 6th Presi
dent Davis heard of the danger to his
familv. who were traveling some dis
tance ahead, from marauders in search
of horses. He decided to take his staff
and a few attendants and join them,
the train to proceed to Florida the in
tention, as understood, being there to
take boats to Cuba, and from there to
thetrans-Mississippi department. As I
was more likely to be captured with
the train than, with the mounted party,
in order to provide means iorxne trans
portation: fo Cuba, I called the staff to
gether and paid Colonel F. R. Lobbuck,

Mr. and Mrs. George O. Miller buried
a babe in the Washington Congress
ional Cemetery a few days ago, and be
fore the little white coffin was lowered
to the grave, Robert G. Ingersell deliv
ered the following address :
My Friends: I know how vain it is
to gild a grief with words, and yet I
wish to take from every grave its fear.
Here in this world, where life and
death are equal kings, all should be
brave enough to meet what all the dead
have met The future has been filled
with fear, stained and polluted by the
heartless past. From the wondrous tree
of life the buds and blossoms fall with
linen ed fruit, and in the common bed
of earth the patriarchs and babes Bleep
side try side.
Why should we fear that which will
come to all that is ? We cannot tell, we
do not know which is the greater bless
ing life or death. We cannot say that
death is not a good. We do not Iknow
whether the grave is the end of this
life or the door of another, or whether
the night here is not somewhere else a
dawn. Neither can we tell which, ; is
the more fortunate the child dying in
its mother's arms before its lips have
learned to form a word, or he who journeys-
all the length of life's uneven
road, painfully, taking the last slow
steps with staff and crutch. "
VwMt amwIa Antra na MT K o,n imtx V OtotT
every coffin "Whither ?" The poor bar
barian, weeping above bis dead, can
answer these questions as intelligently
and satisfactorily as the robed priest of
the most authentic creed. The tearful
ignorance of the one is just as consoling
as the learned and unmeaning words of
the other. No man, standing where the
horizon of a life has touched a grave,
has tiny right to prophesy a future filled
with pain and tears. It may be that
death gives all there is of worth to life.
If those we press and strain against our
hearts could never die perhaps that love
would wither from the earth. May be
f.hia rmmnn fata tread from out the
paths between our hearts the weeds of
selfishness and bate, and I had rather
live and love where death.Is king than
have eternal life where love is not An
other life is naught unless we know
and love again the ones who love us
They who stand with breaking hearts
around this little grave need have no
fear. The larger and the nobler faith
in all that is and is to be tells us that
death, even at its worst is only perfect
rest. We know that through the com
mon wants of life tbe needs and du
ties of each hour their grief will lessen
day by day until at last this grave will
be to them a place of rest and peace
almost of joy. There is for them this
consolation : The dead do not suffer.
If they live again their lives will surely
hn a pood ail mw We have no fear.
We are all children 4f the same mother
and the same fata awaits us alL; We,
too. have onr reliflfiom and it is this:
Help for the living, hope for the dead.

derstands the art of blending varieus fla
