Nr.w Yoitic, April 4. Tito flrat timr
rlago of JclTcraon Uiivia wus of n bouio
what roinniitlo chtimctcr. After grad
uating tit West 1'olnt ho was ordomi
to Fort Crnwford nt Prnlrlo tht
Chlcn, Wis., tho 3t thou coiniuniHlcd
hy Col. Znclmry Tnylor. Tlio daughter
of tho latter, MIm Salllo Knox Taylor, nt
onco fell desperately in lovo with tho
hnudsomo nnd ititcllectunl young lieu
tenant, nml tho affection wuh recipro
cated, but tho old colonel was nvorso to
any match making tmder tltu circum
stances and iwroinptorlly forlmdo Davis
from visiting his quarters oxcept in an
ofllclal capacity. Tho lovers managed
to seo each other by stratugem, how
over, and 0110 morning at daylight thoy
wcro missing. Tho household was in
stantly aroused, tho servants Interro
gated nnd a search made, but nothing
was elicited savo that tho door of tho
stablu was open, four horses wcro gono,
and their tracks indicated 11 hasty do
parturc. Further examination of tho
premises showed that Lieut, George
Wilson, brother of lion. Thomas S. Wil
son, of Dubuque, la., and Miss Street,
daughter of Gen. Street, had likewise
suddenly disappeared. There was but
ono conclusion, nnd In less than an hour
every man, woman and child In tho vll
lngo know all about tho runaway match.
Col. Taylor wus unrnged ami declared
with nn oath na strong us ho over mod,
that under no circumstances would ho
forgivo Davis or becomo reconciled to his
daughter's disobedience. Sixteen years
passed. "Old Ziich" was in command of
tho United States nrmy In Moxico, and
serving under him was Col. Jefferson
Davis ut tho head of tho famous First
Mississippi Hides. At thobattloof Ducna
Vista this regiment covered Itself with
glory, but Davis, whilo leading ono of its
charges at a critical moment, fell se
verely, and it was supposed mortally,
wounded. Ho was borno from tho field,
nnd that evening Gen. Taylor, mounted
on "Old Whltoy." paid him a visit. Dis
mounting ho stepped to tho colonel's
cot and extended his hand.
"Jeff," ho said, "you have saved tho
day with your glorious Miles; now let
bygones bo bygoucs; Knox (tho nnmo by
which ho alwaj-H called his daughter)
kuow your worth nnd mcttlo better than
From that moment, through tho war,
and indeed until tho death of President
Tnylor, tho warmest friendship existed
between tho old companions in arms.
Mr. Dnvio visited tho urmy of tlio west
soon after Chicknmauga. Owing to tho
fact that tho troops wcro practically in
lino of battle, tho roviow wns of rather nn
informal character. Davis, attended by a
retlnuo of olllcers, simply rodo down tho
long lino from left to right, only n fow
hundred ynrds behind tho lino of pickets,
but tho enthusiasm evoked was of a
character novcr licforo witnessed in tho
western nrmy. For tho first time tho
majority of tho men saw their loaders
By tho sido of Mr. Davis rodu now
Bragg, now Longstrcet, again Breckinridge-
or others of his personal old army
friends, whilo following in tho rear was
a brilliant galaxy of Confederate officers,
among whom might bo seen Cheatham,
Buckncr, McLnws, Jncksou, Pat Cle
burne, Stewart, Mackall, Gist, Chcsnut,
Preston, tho Kcntuoky orator; Lieut.
Gen. Pemberton, of Vicksburg fnmo, nnd
many others. Moro or loss of firing be
tween tho pickets took plnco during tho
inspection, nnd although the Federal
works wcro examined from Lookout
mountain and other points of vantage,
there was apparently no suspicion in tho
Union lines that so important n person
ago as tho president of tho Confederacy
was within cannon shot.
Tho circumstances which attended tho
capture of Jc!rorson Davis aro thus re
lated in tho language of Mr. Davis him
self. Ho says: "On tho second or third
day after leaving Washington, my ob
ject being to meet tho forces supposed to
bo in tho Held in Alabama, word was
brought that a band of deserters and
stragglers from both armies wns in pur
suit of my family, whom I had not seen
since they left Richmond, nnd who, I
heard at Washington, had gono with my
privato secretary nnd seven paroled men,
who had generously offered their services
as an escort, to tho Florida coast. I im
mediately rodo across tho country to
ovcrtako them. About nightfall tho
horses of my escort gave out, but I press
ed on with Secretary Reagan and my
personal staff. It wus a bright moon
light night, ami just beforo day I met
a party of men who told mo
they had passed an encampmont
of women and children. After a short
timo, I was hailed by a volco which I
recognized ns that of my privato secre
tary, who informed mo that they wcro
on post nnd expected an assault us soon
ns tho moon went down. For the pro
tection of my fumlly I remained with
them two or threo days, when, behoving
that thoy had passed out of tho region of
danger, I determined to leavo their en
campment at nightfall to oxecuto my
original purpose. My horso romalnod
saddled nnd my pistols in tho holsters,
tiiul I lay down fully dressed to rest
Nothing occurred to urouro me until just
beforo dawn, whon my coachman, n freo
colored man who had faithfully clung to
my fortunes, camo and told mo thoro
was firing over tho branch just behind
our encampment. I stepped out of my
tout nnd saw some horsemen, whom I
immediately recognized as cavalry, do
ploying around tho encampment. My
horso and arms wcro near the road on
which I expected to leave, nnd down
which tho cavalry approached. It
was thcrcforo impracticable to reach
tberu. I was compelled to start
In tho opixwlto direction. An "it
was qttt'.o tint I. In tho tont, I picked up
what I supposed tti bo my 'rnglan,' n
watoipioof iMorcont without sleeves, It
was subsequently found to bo my wlfo's,
10 very like my own as to bo mistaken
for It. Am 1 started my wlfo thought
fully throw over my head nml phouldera
11 shawl. I had gono perhaps fifteen or
twenty yards, when 11 trooper galloped
up "and ordered 1110 to surrender, to
which I guvo 11 dellant answer, und,
dropping the shawl nnd 'rnglan' from
my shoulders, advanced towards him.
Ho leveled his carbine nt nut, but I ex
pected If ho fired ho would miss mo, nnd
my intention wns In that event to put
my hand under his foot, liimblo htm off
on thu other side, spring Into his unddlo
anil nttompt to escajK". My wlfo, who
had been watching, when sho saw tho
soldier aim his carbine, rim forward and
throw her arms around mo. Success de
pended on Instantaneous action, and
recognizing Unit tho opportunity had
licen lost, I turned back, und (ho morn
ing being damp and chilly, passed on to
n Uro beyond tlio tent."
On tho way to Macon Mr. Davis ro
celved n proclamation olferlng 11 reward
for his apprehension as an accomplice in
the assassination of President Lincoln.
Arriving In that city, his family nml
himself were assigned to commodious
ipiarters nnd treated with polite con
sideration by Gen. Wilson, whom Mr.
Davis had met at West Point when ho
was u cadet, und when thu former was
sent us u commissioner by congress to
inquire into thonlfalrsof thu academy.
Mr. Davis in this connection sayst "After
some conversation In regard to former
times and our common acquaiiiMtico ho
referred to tho proclamation olferlng a re
ward for my capture. Taking It for
granted that any sigutllcunt remark of
mine would bo rcoiUd to his govern
ment, and fearing that I might never
have another opportunity of giving my
opinion to A. Johnson, I told him thoro
wns ono man in tho United States who
know that proclamation to lie fatso. Ho
remarked that my expression Indicated
n particular person. I answered that it
did, and the htsoii was tho ono who
signed It, for ho nt least knew that I
preferred Lincoln to himself."
Arriving at Augusta, (la., the party
wcro tlicro put on n steamer and mot
Vlco President Stephens, Clement C.
Clay, Gen. Wheeler, the present member
of congress from Alnlmmu, and Burton
M. Harrison, the privato secretary of
Mr. Davis, Beaching Port itoyal, thoy
wero transferred to Hamilton Roads, and
utter soiiio day's detention Davis nnd
Clay wero removed to Fortress Monroe.
Tho family of Mr. Davis wero sent to
Savannah. Subsequently Mrs. Davis
and her daughter Georgia wero pcrmit
cd to return to Fortress Monroe nnd oc
cupy apartments in tho quarters.

MRS. ANTOINETTE WAKEMAN.
A Woman Who la lUpldly Mounting the
I. Ili-nii' I.Mililcr.
Chicago, April !. Out from tho ad
vancing lino of women wrltors steps a
woman with 11 quiet face und calm, curli
est eyes, nnd tranquilly takes her position
far in advance of many others who havo
toiled for years. This is Mrs. Antoinotto
Vun Iloescn Wnkemau, and journalism
is glad to welcome so bravo a spirit, bo
truo 11 woman, nnd so brilliant n writer.
Mrs Wukemnn had tho benefit of an
excellent education, und though her
tastes ran towards literaturo sho did no
such labor until about threo years ago,
and from that timo until this her progress
has lieeu marked to nn unusual degree.
Sho lived in Chicago und had for several
years been connected with many clinri
tnbe undertakings, only writing ad
dresses for them, nnd taking tho burden
of "making ends meet" in their llnanccs.
For tills work sho lias a rcmarkablo
Thu question of industrial education
for children and business education for
women claimed her attention, and sho
then began writ
ing, with tho re
sult of attracting
interest nnd nld
for her cause, un
til it is now nn
In Chicago. In
uld of this plan
Tho Journal of
tion, and carried
It through its Qrst
years of struggle
and at last turned
it ovor to tho
trustees as a prosperous nml paying jour
nal, In this sho had Mrs. Emma Cho
noy, Dr. Sarah Hackett Stevenson, Dr.
Thomas, Professor Swing, Miss Emma
Willard, Mrs. Jcannetto Abbott, Miss
Mitchell und others as paid contributors.
In tho meantimoMrs. Wukeman assisted
In tho editorial labor of Tho Current and
found timo to wrlto her "Studies of
Dickens, tho Toucher;" an innumerable
mass of poems for various periodicals
and papers, and contlnuo her work in
tho different charitable organizations in
which sho was interested, besides work
ing on tho staff of Tho Chicago Times.
Then sho organized and took full and
cntlro charge of a quarterly magazine,
which she has conducted bo prudently
aud economically that when sho left Chi
cago for New York sho turned it over to
tho proprietors as a paying concern in
less, than two years. Tho record of hav
ing organized nnd brought to 11 solid finan
cial condition two publications on a
very limited capital makes of Mrs. Wako
man almost a phenomenon. Sho has
now loft Chicago for Now York to tako
full charge of u projected monthly maga
zlno, the first number of which will bo
out, in April, and it bringing her careful
management to bear upon this also.
In ISai Mrs. Wakeman nnd Mrs. F. n.
Connnt. of Chicago, founded tho Illinois
Woman's Press association, which has
become ono of tho most successful organ
izations of its kind in tho country. Mrs.
Wakeman has been an officer of thU as
sociation from its foundation to tho prw
in his new location, 229 South Thirtccth Street, desires to
announce to the public that he has just opened a
lagniflceiit lew Line
which he selected personally from the largest factories in
the country, and takes pleasure in showing a varied assort
and Art Hangings, embracing the richest effects at prices
ranging front the cheapest to the best. He employs only
the best of workmen, and guarantees satisfaction in every
all its branches skillfully
