the hostility and strong if not exaggerated rumors sent out by the Secretary of War. Both Stanton and Halleck were, however, filled with apprehensions beyond others, as the army of stragglers and broken battalions, on the last of August and first of September, came rushing toward Washington. Mr. S. P. Chase, Secretary of the Treasury in the same cabinet, writing shortly after Sept. 2, 1862, says: From the day the President told me McClellan was beaten, and I saw his despatches announcing 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 suggestion of Judge Bates, the remonstrance against McClellan, which had been previously signed by Smith, was modified; and, having been further slightly altered on my suggestion, was signed by Stanton, Bates, and myself, an
ed to 15,000. We cannot afford such losses without an object, It is my deliberate opinion that the interests of the nation demand that Pope should fall back to-night, if possible, and not one moment is to be lost. I will use all the cavalry I have to watch our right. Please answer at once. I feel confident that you can rely upon the information I give you. I shall be up all night, and ready to obey any orders you give me. To which this reply was received from Gen. Halleck: Sept. 1, 1.30 A. M. Burnside was ordered up very early yesterday morning. Retain remainder of Couch's forces, and make arrangements to stop all retreating troops in line of works, or where you can best establish an entire line of defence. My news from Pope was up to four P. M.; he was then all right. I must wait for more definite information before I can order a retreat, as the falling back on the line of works must necessarily be directed in case of a serious disaster. Give me all addition
te letter to Mr.--presently, explaining to him the exact state of the case, without comment, so that my friends in New York may know all. . . . Everything is too uncertain and unsafe around Washington at present for you to dream of going there. As a matter of self-respect, I cannot go there. . . . I do not regard Washington as safe against the rebels. If I can quietly slip over there I will send your silver off. There is an order forbidding any one going there without permission from the War Department, and I do not care to ask them for so slight a favor as that . . . . Sept. 1, Washington, 2 P. M. I have only time to tell you that I have been placed in command of Washington and all the garrisons, etc., in the vicinity, to do the best I can with it. The decisive battle will be fought to-day near Fairfax Court-House. My headquarters are to be in town. If the squall passes over, and Washington is a safe place, you shall come on to see me, if I can't get off to see you. . . .
e information Hammerstein brought proved that Pope's despatch was false throughout. On the 1st of Sept. I met Gen. Halleck at his office in Washington, who by verbal order directed me to take chargch as I now hold must be. At what hour in the morning can I see you alone? On the morning of Sept. 1 McClellan went up from Alexandria to Washington, and now Halleck verbally placed him in charge the War is thus demonstrated. He, and he alone, was in command and responsible from Aug. 26 to Sept. 1. Gen. Halleck's verbal orders to Gen. McClellan on Sept. 1 gave the latter no control over tSept. 1 gave the latter no control over the active army. Halleck was now encouraged about Pope, and discredited McClellan's bad news from the front. Pope had telegraphed that he had fought a terrific battle, which lasted from daylight tk to send Col. Kelton to the front for information. The return of that officer in the night of Sept. 1--2 revealed the truth, which brought terror to Washington. Without dwelling on the condition
ollowing statement, taken from a report of the chief-quartermaster with the army, will show what progress was made in supplying the army with clothing from the 1st of Sept. to the date of crossing the Potomac on the 31st of Oct., and that a greater part of the clothing did not reach our depots until after the 14th of Oct.: Stat Received at the depots.Drawers.Forage-caps.Stockings.Sack-coats.Cavalry-jackets.Canteens.Flannel shirts.Haversacks.Trousers (mounted).Boots.Shelter-tents.
