reputation as a soldier."
Wilhoiit commenting on the
rat lu r pertinent interruption, (iov
eriior Jarvis continued: 'After
winning the ins' tieneral I'.ullcr
hid the 'Aiueiiea' ovel hauled
thoroughly, and on the day of the
sail she was like a palace iu ap
pointments and equipments. Al
one place on the boat the name the

iug a portion of I lie Confederate
history of the first Cup winner."
Il is a ralln-r singular thing that

enthused all America, should have
lieen it Confederate privateer, ami
should then have Iiccii Ihe private
yacht of tieneral r.ciijaiiiin 1". Hut

liovcrnor of Ihe I lay State. Tliith
is stauger than fiction.
"tin that sail, upon our return
loin the ocean," continued iov
eriior Jarvis, "we stopped at the
famous club house where a uolablc
lish dinner was served -- nothing
but lish, but all kiml.s of the besl

entire time to living to prove to
me that 'Stonewall' Jackson was
not a gleat soldier."
Aski d his opion as to to'lieial
lliiller's ability, (iovcruor Jarvis
replied by saying that Chief Justice
Colerriilge told him he regarded
tieneral Hutler as the most aeeoiu
plished man he had ever known.
'Hutler asked me n curious
question'" continued ( iovcruor
Jarvis. '-He turned to me iu one
of our iiiliuerous conveisatious
with him while I was in H uston
and said: 'Jarvis, when you fellows
