PERSONAL NOTES ON THE EX-PRESIDENT
OF THE CONFEDERACY.
tils First MrrlBe-HU Visit to tho Army
of the West Ills Capture and Imprison
mrnt Ills Opinion of President John
son. IBpecUl Oorreapondence,
New Yoiik, April 4. Tho flrat iuoj
riago of Jefferson Davis wna of a some
what romantic character. After grad
uating at West I'oint ho was ordorod
to Fort Crawford at Pralrio du
Chion, Wis., tho iost then commanded
by Col, Znclmry Taylor. Tho daughter
of tho latter, Miss Sallio Knox Taylor, at
onco fell desperately in iovo with tha
handsomo and intellectual young lieu
tenant, and tho affection was recipro
cated, but tho old colonel was avcrso to
any match making under tlfc circum
stances nnd (icromptorily forbndo Davis
from visiting Ills quarters except in on
oftlcinl capacity. Tho lovers managed
to sco each other by stratagem, how
ever, and ono morning at daylight thoy
wero missing. Tho household was In
stantly aroused, tho servants Interro
gated and n search mwlo, but nothing
was elicited uavo thnt tho door of tho
stablo was oiion, four homos wero gono,
and their tracks indicated n hasty do
parturo. Further examination of tho
premises showed that Llout. Qeorgo
Wilson, brother of Hon. Thnnirm S. Wll.
son, of Dubuque, la., and Miss Street,
daughter of Oon. Street, Iiad llkowiso
suddenly disappeared. Thero was but
ono conclusion, and in less than an hour
ovory man, woman and child in tho vil
lago know nil about tho runaway match.
Col. Tuvlor woa onrntrrwl nml iloolnrod
with an oath as strong aa ho over used,
that under no circumstances would ho
forgivo Davis or becomo reconciled to his
daughter's disobedience Sixteen years
passed. "Old Zach" was in command of
tho United States army in Mexico, nnd
serving under him was Col. Jefferson
Davis at tho head of tho famous First
Mississippi Rifles. At tholmttloof Ducna
Vista this regiment covered itself witli
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,
and that ovening Gen. Taylor, mounted
on "Old Wliitoy," paid him a visit. Dis
mounting ho stepped to tho colonel's
cot nnd extended ills hand.
"Jeff," ho said, "you have saved tho
day with your glorious Rifles; now let
bygones bo bygones; Knox (tho namo by
which ho always called his daughter)
kuow your wortli and mettlo better than
From that moment, through tho war,
and indeed until tho death of President
Taylor, tho warmest friendship existed
between tho old companions in arms.
Mr. Davis visited tho army of tho west
soon after Chickamauga. Owing to tho
fact that tho troops wero practically in
lino of battle, thoroviowwasof father an
informal character. Davis, attended by a
retinuo of officers, simply rodo down tho
long lino from left to right, only a fow
hundred yards behind tho lino of pickets,
but tho enthusiasm evoked was of a
character nover beforo witnessed In tho
western army. For tho first titno tho
majority of tho men. saw their leaders
By tho sido of Mr. Davis rodo now
Bragg, now Longstroct. again Breckin
ridgo or others of his personal old army
friends, whilo following in tho rear was
a brilliantgalaxy'of Confederate officers,
among whom might bo soon Cheatham,
Buckncr, McLaws, Jackson, Pat Clo
burno, Stewart, Mackall, Gist, Chesnut,
Preston, tho Kcntuoky orator; Lieut.
Qcn. Pcmbcrton, of Vicksburg famo, nnd
many others. Moro or less of firing be
tween tho pickets took placo during tho
inspection, and although the fV.lr.ml
works wero examined from Lookout
mountain nnd other points of vantage,
thero was apparently no suspicion in tho
Union lines that bo important a person
ogo as tho president of tho Confederacy
was within cannon shot.
Tho circumstances which attended tho
capturo of Jefferson Davis aro thus re
lated In tho languago 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 field in Alabama, word was
brought that a band of deserters and
stragglers from both armies was in pur
suit of my family, whom I had not Boon
slnco thoy loft Richmond, nnd who, I
heard nt Washington, had gono with my
privato secretary nnd soven paroled men,
who had trencrouslv offered their Rnrvlnon
aa an escort, to tho Florida coast. I im
mediately rodo ncross tho country to
ovcrtako them. About nlrlitfnll tlm
horses of my escort gavo out, but I press-
cuon wuii secretary Itcagan and my
personal staff. It was a bright moon
light night, und just beforo day I met
n party of men who told inn
they had Iiassod nn eneammnnnt
of women nnd children. After n short
timo, I wns hailed by a volco which I
recognlzetl as that of my privato sccro
tary. who Informed mo tlmt thov wn.m
on post and expected nn assault na soon
as tho moon went down. For the pro
tection of my family I remained with
thorn two or thrco days, when, beliovlng
that they had passed out of tho region of
dnngcr, I determined to leavo their en
campment at nightfall to oxecuto my
original purjioso. My horso remained
saddled nnd my pistols In tho holstore,
and I lay down fully dressed to rest.
Nothing occurred to nroino mo until just
beforo dawn, when my coachman, n freo
colored man who had faithfully clung to
my fortunes, camo and told mo thero
wna firing over tho branch just behind
our encampment. I stepped out of my
tout and saw somo horsemen, whom I
immediately recognized as cavalry, do
ploying around tho encampment. My
horso and urms wero near tho road on
which I expected to leavo, and down
which tho cavalry approached. It
was therefore impracticable to reach
thorn. I woa compelled to btart
SATURDAY, APRIL 13,
in tho opiwalto direction, An It
was qulto dark in tho tont, I picked up
whnt I nupposod to bo my 'rnglan,' n
waterproof ovorcoat without alcoves. It
waa subsequently found to bo my wlfo's,
so very like my own aa to lxi mistaken
for It, An I started my wlfo thought
fully throw over my head and shouldora
n shawl. I hud gono perhaps fifteen or
twenty yards, when a trooimr galloped
up nnd ordered mo to surrendor, to
which I gavo a defiant nnawor, and,
dropping tho shawl and 'rnglan' from
my shoulders, advanced towards him.
Ho leveled his carbine at mo, but I ox
pcoted if ho ilred ho would mlsa mo, nnd
my intention woa in thnt event to put
my hand under his foot, tumblo him off
on tho other nido, spring into his naddlo
nnd attempt to cacapo. My wife, who
had been watching, when alio saw tho
soldier nim his carbine, rnn forward and
throw her nrma around mo. Success de
pended on Instantaneous action, nnd
recognizing that tho opportunity, had
been lost, I turned back, nnd tho morn
ing being dump and chilly, passed on to
n llro beyond tho tent."
On tho way to Jlncon Mr. Davis re
ceived a proclamation offering n reward
for hla npprehonalon its an nccompllco in
tho nssassinntlou of President Lincoln.
Arriving in that city, his family and
himself wero unsigned to commodious
quarters ami treated with polite con
sideration by Gen. Wilson, whom Mr.
Davis hnti met at West Point when ho
was u cadet, and when tho former waa
sent as a commissioner by congress to
iuquiru into the affair of tho ncadomy.
Mr. Davis in this connection aiiyai "After
somo conversation in regard to former
titncH and our common ncqualuhinco ho
referred to tho proclamation offering a ro
ward for my capturo. Taking It for
granted that any significant remark of
uilno would bo reported to hla govern
ment, and fearing that I might nover
hnvo another opportunity of giving my
opinion to A. Johnson, I told him thoro
waa ono man in tho United States who
know thnt proclamation to bo false. Ho
remarked that my expression indicated
a particular iierson. I answered thnt it
did, and tho ierson wns tho ono who
signed it, for he nt least know thnt I
preferred Lincoln to himself."
Arriving nt Augusta, On., tho party
wero thero put on u steamer and mot
Vlco President Stephens, Clement O.
Clay, Gen. Wheeler, tho present member
of congress from Alabama, and Burton
M. Harrison, tho privato secretary of
Mr. Davis. Reaching Port Royal, thoy
wero transferred to Hampton Roads, and
nftcr somo day's detention Davis nnd
Clay wero removed to Fortress Monroe.
Tho family of Mr. Davis woro sent to
Savannah. Subsequently Mrs. Davis
and her daughter Georgia wero pcrmlt
cd to. return to Fortress Monroo nnd oc
cupy apartments in tho quarters.

MRS. ANTOINETTE WAKEMAN.
A Woman Who Is Rupldly Mounting th
' Special Corrcspondcnco.
CuiCAao, April 4. Out from tho ad
vancing lino of women writers stops a
woman with a quiet faco nnd calm, earn
est oyes, and tranquilly takes her position
far in ndvanco of many others who liavo
tolled for years. This ia Mrs. Antoinette
Van Hocscn Wnkoraan, and journalism
is glad to wolcomo so bravo a spirit, so
truo a woman, nnd bo brilliant a writer.
Mrs Wakoman had tho benefit of on
excellent education, and though her
tastes ran towards litoraturo sho did uo
such labor until about thrco years ago,
and from that timo until thla her progress
lias been marked to an unusual degree.
Sho lived in Chicago and had for soveral
years been connected with tunny chad
tnblo undertakings, only writing ad
dresses for them, nnd taking tho burden
of "making ends meet" in their finances.
For this work sho has n rcmarkablo
Tho question of industrial education
for children nnd business education for
women claimed her attention, nnd sho
then began writ
ing, with tho re
sult of attracting
interest and aid
for her cnuso, un
til it is now an
in Chicago. In
aid of this plan
Tho Journal of
tion, nnd carried
it through its first
years of strugglo,
aud at last turned
it ovor to tho
trustees aa a prosperous and paying jour
nal. In this alio had Mrs. Emma Cho
noy, Dr. Sarali Hackott Stovenson, Dr.
Thomas, Professor Swing, Miss Emma
Willard, Mrs. Jennnotto Abbott, Misa
Mitchell nnd others ns paid contributors.
In tho mcnntimoMrs. Wnkcman assisted
in tho editorial labor of Tho Current nnd
found timo to writo her "Studies of
Dickons, tho Teacher;" an Innumcrablo
masj of jiooma for various periodical
and papers, and continuo her work iu
tho different charitable organizations in
which bIio waa interested, besides work-
lug on tho stair of Tho Chicago Times.
Then bIio organized nnd took full nnd
entire charge of a quarterly magazine,
which sho has conducted bo prudently
nnd economically that when sho left Chi
cago for Now York sho turned It over to
tho proprietors aa a paying concern in
less than two years. Tho record of hav
ing organized nnd brought to a solid finan
cial condition two publications on n
very limited capital makes of Mrs, Wako
man nlmost a phenomenon. Sho has
now loft Chicago for New York to tako
full charge of a projected monthly inaga
zluo, tho Ih-trt number of which will bo
out in April, and is bringing her careful
management to bear upon tills nlso.
In 1883 Mrs. Wakoman and Mrs. F.H.
Connnt. or Chicago, founded tho Illinois
Woman's Press association, which liaa
become ono of tho most successful organ
izations of Its kind iu tho country. Mrs.
Wakcmnu has becu an officer of this as
sociation from its foundation tq tho pres
in his new location, 229 South Thirtccth Street, desires to
announce to the public tlmt he hits just opened a
Magnificent lew Line
which he selected personally froin the largest factories n
the country, and takes pleasure in showing a varied assort
and Art Hangings, embracing the richest effects at prices
ranging from the cheapest to the best. He employs only
the best of workmen, and guarantees satisfaction in every
