Acting secretary of the navy,
Hackett, got a new definition of
the first state in the union from
one of his callers this week. He
was a flashily dressed negro, and
although he seemed to have a
little educatiou, he had hazy ideas
of how jobs are obtained from
, Uncle Sam. He sent his card in
to Mr. Hackett, and when he was j
admitted favored that gentleman
with a spread-eagle bow, and said:
*I have come, sir, to apply for
something to do around the de-
partment.” Mr. Hackett smiled,
as he asked, “what cau you do?”
“anything sir,” replied the negro.
“What state are you from?” asked
Mr. Hackett. ‘‘The first state in
the union, sir.” ‘‘New York,
eh?1 “No sir,’’ replied the negro,
proudly throwing his shoulders
back, ‘‘from Alabama, sir.” Mr.
Hackett politely informed his cal-
ler that the appointment clerk was
the proper man to file his appli-
cation with, and in reply to that
official, the negro said that he was
taught at school that Alabama was
the first state in the union, because
it came first in the alphabetical list
of the states.
Gen. Joe Wheeler, who has
spent the winter in New York,
passed through Washington this
week, on his way to Memphis, to
attend the Confederate reunion.
In a conversation, he said:*‘I have
beeu living most of the winter in
New York, my daughters being
comfortably located there, but I
didn t want to miss an opportunity
to take the boys of the Confederacy
again by the hand, for we are all
getting old, and there can’t be
m?ny more reunions for lots of us.
Our plans for the summer are not
made yet. In years gone by we
have not resided on my plantation,
where it is hot in summer, but
have generally gone to the moun-
tains. ” Gen. Wheeler is looking
just as spry as when he was in
The Record regrets to hear that
Mister Walter Le wright is sick at
home with slow fever. We hope
he will shortly recover.
