PRIVATE WILLIAM ME YLE HABERSHAM.
It is becoming common to surmount Confederate monuments with the
figure of a private soldier. The splendid monument in Augusta has four
statues, some twenty feet from the base, of distinguished officers. They are
Gen. Lee, Gen. “Stonewall” Jackson, Gen. W. 11. T. Walker and Gen. T. 11.
R. Cobb. But high above these stands the figure of a private soldier. In
honor of this noble class of heroes, so well represented at “Camp Lee,” we
to-day present the picture of the young brother of Capt. Joseph CJay Hab

ENT AND IMPORTANT
QUESTIONS TO BE
SHORTER COLLEGE CHAPEL
THE PLACE OF MEETING.
The convention of the commission
ed officers of the State will convene
this morning at 10 o’clock, a. m., in
the spacious chapel of Shorter Col
lege. This will be the largest conven
tion of the kind ever held in the State
and many questions of importance
will be considered. Distinguished
officers from all over the State will be
present and withal, it will be quite an
interesting meeting. Short speeches
will be indulged in by the different
members, which will doubtless be
listened to with rapt attention. The
vital question of the convention, and
one which lias agitated the minds of
the military men all over the State is
AN APPROPKIATION ’FOR AN ANNUAL
This is an important question and
will be discussed at length, as to (he
best manner in which to bring it be
fore our legislature. If the question
is properly put before that distinguish
ed body, we have not a doubt but what
it will be carried and a handsome ap
propriation made every year for an
annual encampment. No man with
sound judgment can fail to see the
importance of such an appropriation.
Our militia must be kept together for
the proper defense of our country, and
they will not endure the expense and
trouble without some appreciation of
their worth. They have
in buying their uniforms and thous
ands of other tilings which they pay
for out of their own pockets without
a murmur, and a small appropriation
will be sufficient to have these re
unions annually. They foster the
military spirit of the State, and keep
our militia in perfect organization.
The band will lie present this morn
ing and will discourse music for the
occasion. The ladies are especially in
vited to be present this morning and
all are welcolne.
The Tribune office was honored
with a call last evening by the Misses
Ramey, accompanied by Messrs. Joe

twenty-live new dwelling houses in

a superior manner. The work-is be
