eated, and the army, sadly demoralized, came retreating to the Potomac. The War Department, and especially Stanton and Halleck, became greatly alarmed. On the 30th August, in the midst of these disasters, and before the result had reached us, though most damaging information in regard to McClellan, who lingered at Alexandria, was of orders and consequent delay of support to Army of Virginia; Gen. H. promised answer to-morrow morning (Warden's Account, etc., of S. P. Chase, p. 456). On Aug. 30 Mr. Chase states that he and Mr. Stanton prepared and signed a paper expressing their judgment of McClellan (ibid. p. 456). Sept. 1 Mr. Chase states: On sugge on Sept. 2, as given by Secretaries Chase and Welles. When Mr. Stanton had succeeded, as he supposed, in depriving McClellan of command by his ironical order of Aug. 30, and when the peril of the capital and country led Mr. Lincoln on Sept. 2 to appeal to McClellan to save them, Mr. Stanton openly declared, says Mr. Blair, that h

e seen neither the President nor the secretary since I arrived here; have been only once to Washington, and hope to see very little of the place. I abominate it terribly. . . . I have no faith in any one here, and expect to be turned loose the moment their alarm is over. I expect I got into a row with Halleck to-night. He sent me a telegram I did not like, and I told him so very plainly. He is not a refined person at all, and probably says rough things when he don't mean them . . . . Aug. 30, 8 A. M. . . . Was awakened last night by a few scattering shots that, no doubt, came from some of those very raw troops that are about here. Shall start soon after breakfast and ride to Upton's Hill, thence to the Chain bridge and along the line of forts. I want to see all on this side of the river to-day, if I can. No one in Washington appears to know the condition of matters, and I have a fancy for finding them out for myself. If I once get matters reasonably straight I shall not
brought on the army and country, so that, when before the committee, he had forgotten the countless facts which prove his statement untrue. From the 26th to the 30th Aug. his despatches to McClellan recognized that officer as in command of his own Army of the Potomac. On the 24th McClellan, arrived at Acquia, had telegraphed him:the capital was lost. The President asked him if under the circumstances (to wit, the recent treatment of Stanton and Halleck, and the insulting general order of Aug. 30) he would resume command and do the best that could be done. The instant acceptance of this vast responsibility by McClellan puts at rest a falsehood published o McClellan, he gave the order that he be relieved from the command of the Army of the Potomac --a command which Gen. McClellan had not held by any authority since Aug. 30. B.--Capt. William H. Powell, of the 4th Regular Infantry, in a letter to the Century, dated Fort Omaha, Neb., March 12, 1885, thus describes this scene [Cen
