Col. McKoy's Address-Exquisite
tlons of Craves
Yesterday, the 11 th inot, set apart
for the Memorial Services at Oakdale
Cemetery, instead of the 10th, as Sun
day fell on that day this year, was as
bright and beautiful a Spring day as
we have yet been favored with. By
12 o'clock business was almost unani
mously suspended everywhere and
vigorous preparations were made for
the observance of the occasion. Many
of the patriotic merchants draped their
doors and windows, and some the entire
fronts of their buildings with mourn
ing, thus showing their appreciation of
the day and the memory of those to
whom its observance was consecrated.
At 2 o'clock all was bustle and
preparation and at 3 o'clock the pro
cession moved from Market street into
Fourth, along Fourth to Red Cross
and from Red Cross to Oakdale Ceme
tery. It was, we think, the largest
aud most imposing procession yet had
hero and was witnessed by an im
mense throug of others. To give some
idea of its length ws will state that
when the right rested on Walnut
street, tho rear had scarcely left
Market. A noticable feature was in
the fact there were more carriages in
the procession than have attended on
any'previoua occasion and moro of both
Indies and gentlemen than we have
yet , seen on foot in the procession.
Tho Comet Concert Club were in front
discoursing a plaintive dirge, and
theso wore followed by the Cadets,
then by the Ladies' Memorial Associa
tion, the Children's Memorial Associa
tion, various Sunday Schools and day
schools, the survivors of the Third N.
C. Regiment, other Confederate sol
diers and sailors, and citizens on foot
and in carriages. Tho children all pre
sented a fine appearance, dressed ap
propriately in white, trimmed ? with
black ribbon and carrying between
them garlands of evergreens and hugo
masses of bright flowers. Tho various
banners of the different sohools were
tasteful atd their devices appropriate,
and the new banner of the Memorial
Association, a description bf which we
have already published, with the dear
old Confederate flag on its front was
admired by all.
The procession entered the Ceme
tory gates a little before 4 o'clock.and
found there a largo crowd already as
sombled. Amid the tolling of
the chapel bell they ' passed
up the brood green aislo to the Con
federate enclosure where the bronzed
Confedorato soldier stands guard over
the sleeping soldiers beneath him, and
where they found a pleasing surprise
suthat Mr. Donlan. the SiineWufpn
dent of the Cemetery had, ont of the
kindness of Jiis own heart, decorated
the entire enclosure with cvergroen
garlands, stretching in various direc
tions, from railing to railing. Here
they filed into the enclosure, in the
order of procession, until it could hold

would be opened by singing the Me
morial Hymn. The following, prepar
ed for the occasion, was then ex-
quisiteiy rendered by the choir of
ladies aud gentlemen:

Come, soldiers, gather round your comrades

They fall beneath the Iron hall, wh'le you wero
Our righteous Uod protect, uur richest wealth
And beautify this hallowed ot, 'till Resiirrcc-

At the conclusion of the Hymn Rev.
T. M. Ambler, Rector of 8t Paul's
Church, offered short but fervid, earn
est and impressive prayers to the
Throne of Divine Grace, beseeching
Hisblessingontheofferings tendered by
the living hearts assembled there to
the memory of their dead heroes.
The Prayer ended, the following
beautiful anthem, "The Guard Around
the Tomb," written by Mrs. Mary
Bayard Clark, for the Newborn Me
morial Association, was sung to the
tune of "The Watch on the Rhine":
What Is tbla solemn ton ml we hear ?
It breaks upon a nation's ear
Like ocean's sob upon the shore,
The wail of ttonn s w hora wrath Is o'er,
From proud Virginia's mountains grand
It swells thtough all our Southern laud.
A country mourning o'er Its slain,
, Who, gave their Urea, and not In valu,
Since in ita heart their mem'ry blooms
Fresh aa tha flowers upon their tombs.
Tholr toil Is o'er, their labors cease,
In war they died, but died for pe'ace.
They bravely fought and nobly fell,
And Fame their glorious deeda shall (oil;
When aim decrees a orown of bay
No power on earth her hand can stay;
And ob these graves a wreath la laid
Ko storm can change, no time can fade.
Where the has placed this deathlt m crown
Let woman east her rosea down,
And Love and Fame forever stand
, A guard of honor, hand la band,
Around these graves who re heroes II
Who fought for right, nor feared to die.
Col. A.' A. McKoy, who Lad been
selected to deliver the Address on the
ccpfiion, then arose and mndo ona of
the most feeling and touching offer
ings to the memory of "dur Fallen
Dcau" that we have ever heard. Our
desire was to give this Address to our
readers in its entirety, but as Col.
McKoyobjected to this we must substi
tute here the following synopsis,
compiled from looking over the
The speaker's opening appeal was in
behalf of the dead who died for ns.
His commendatiou of the fair Indies
who assembled here and elsewhere to
pay tribute to the memory of onr fal
len braves; his picture of the devotion
of women to all that is sacred in the
recollections of the past, and their care
of this link (viz., these decorated
graves) which binds memory to that
mournful past, must have called np all
tht was manly in nature and bid the
stubborn will to bend, the eye to
moisten, and heart to heave with ca
ored emotions. He asked if high and
holy sympathies were not fully enlist
ed while the fair women of the South
were gathered with mournful hearts
to bedeck with garlands and bedew
with tears the graves of our Confed
erate dead. It sounded indeed like an
invocation as he said, "Calm be your
rest in your cold dwellingplace sweet
be the repose of your graves and
bright your resurrection. The peace
the world gives not is yours sleep
where no breath of detraction can
move. you. You were and are our
pride, whether your names mid the
shrines of patriots be recorded or en
graved deep in some fond widowed
heart." The heart that beats not in
unison with those of the fair ones here
assembled (should be be of our tent
and nurtured in our good old State) is
not worthy of a burial beneath North
Carolina's white sands or a last resting
(lace beneath her evergreen pines,
e said that these heroes fought for
principle and sealed their boast upon
many a hard fought Hold with the
sanction of their blood. - All honor to
those brave hearts who have fallen
that Freedom, a pilgrim, may walk
where their blood on her path leads
her steps to thoir graves.
The speaker next said that nine years
had elapsed since the last gun was
fired in the great conflict. Long enough
for passion to subsido and the calm,
sober second thought to inspire the
sentiments, which shall control our
destinies and write the truth of history.
The glory of the struggle does not
always belong to the victory. For the
timo the feeble voices of those worn
down by fatigue and starvation may
bo stilled by the victorious shouts of
superior numbers, yet through history
right will speak out despite of might,
aud a corrected judgment will bestow
the meed of praise where justly due.
He asked if Thermopylae was made fa
mous by Xeres and his hosts, or by
Leonidas aud his handful of brave
men ? Were it not for tho brave Con
federates where now would be the
poans sung to American warfare? They
would be hushed in silence, and the
burning of tho nation's capital would
again bo the finger board to point to
her prowess in arms. He alluded to
the Northern man who said that when
he reflected upon the struggles of the
Southern hero, his heroism, under any
and all trials, battlingof ten barefooted,
naked and without food, against the
numbers brought to oppose him, when
he passed the cemetery where such
lie buried, he would bow his head in
reverence to the memory of such he
roes. Sentiments like these will crop
out until by our late toes aud present
oppressors the full truth of history
shall be written. The truth is coming,
sooner or later; you and I may not live
to see it, yet sure as time lasts come it
must, and then, and not till then will
there be a perfect peaco. The day
will come when the evil passions of
the great civil strife will sleep in
oblivion, and North and South do jus
tice to each other a motives and forget
ettca otners wrongs. Then will Lis
tory speak with clear voice of the deeds
done on either side and the citizens of
the whole Union do justice to the
memories Of the dead.
Alas, the war was followed by bitter
bate, and we were made to feel all the
horrors of subjugation. Envy the
bane of former years led to detraction
and this was the first step of the soft
ening pracess. Then came toleration
on degrading terms. To those whose
manly pride oould ill brook this deep
uumiuauon.iepitneis, unnatural were
applied, and even the felon s cell was,
for a time, the homeof our bravest and
best. After a period a oold permission
was granted to oome to the halls of
Congress. The caution was given that
the probation wasjsevere. Once more
the South was represented in the
counsels of the nation. But in the
name of all that is decent how was she
represented ? Aye, by crinjruur. fawn-
ino- creatures, wno irom rear or some
other cruel curse, betrayed those
whom they pretended to represent and
became foremost in the race of tyran
nv. and ouDression-voices were heard
in the halls of Congress, but not the
measured manly tones of formeryears.
Thank heaven, these have partly given
away and others, made oi better stuff,
now hold up their heads in congres
sional debate and say, "I am here, not
by sufferance but by right. This na
tion is my birthright. To charge my
people with treason, with an effort to
detroy the life of the nation, is a libtd
on the trnth of history." Let none
dare charge that these sentiments will
enkindle strife; if so, that strife must
be perpetual, for history with its
every page will hold before your eyes
the same truths, while liberty lasts
and the patriot is loved. The speak
er's encouraging view of the returns of
peace, and the great prosperity that
awaits both sections whenever the
North shall realize that if the South is
murdered she will, like the fratrlci.lo,
be compelled to wander through the
mazes of time with its putrid carcass
indissolubly chained to her living
body; aye, always carrying with her
the f rnita of damning crime; that when
the North ceases to be blinded with
passion and will realize that the putre
faction will destroy her, then the old
ship will again right herself and

for the widow and orphan. He said :
To mourn the dead is not the full end
and aim of the toil of noble woman.
There is a higher and a holier purpose

ory of the hero, yet around and among
us are those who suffer the pangs of

For what has ever yet batlled or resist

Freedmen's Savings Bank, was the
hero of the occasion. He (poke for
more than two hours in advocacy of
his claims for the Congressional nom
ination and in denunciation of the
County Committee who had recently
nominated delegates to the Radical
Congressional and Judicial Conven
tions, without allowing the people a
voice in the matter. His remarks were
received with much applause,
W. H. Moore followed Smythe, on
the same side of the qaestion.and then
a reply was attempted by Geo. L. Mab
son, but the (crowd would not hear
him for a moment Shouts and yells
and skreiks ensued, some of which
were almost loud enongh to alarm the
sleepers in the outskirts of the city,
when Mabson, finding that he would
not be beard, desisted and was suc
ceeded by James Heaton. About 12
o'clock the disorderly assemblage dis
persed and quiet citizens. were allowed
to sleep in peace.
- It there ever is a time when a man is
justified in changing the subject sud
denly, it is when his wife asks if he
posted that letter to mother promptly.
