The Committee reported in favor of amending the Senate amendments by adding several sections of the bill passed by the House amendatory of the enrolment acts. On motion of Mr. Farnsworth, the twelfth section of the Senate amendment, introduced by Mr. Lane, of Kansas, which would have required the removal of General Meigs from the quartermaster's department, was stricken out. Mr. Holman moved an amendment to muster out soldiers with their regiments or batteries who were enlisted in 1862 and 1863, with assurances that they were only to fill the unexpired term of their regiments or batteries; and the amendment was agreed to — yeas, ninety one; nays, thirty-one. Several amendments to the Senate amendment were agreed to, and the Senate amendment as amended was adopted. The Senate non-concurred in the House amendments, asked a committee of conference, and appointed Mr. Wilson, Mr. Howard, and Mr. Buckalew managers. The House agreed to the conference, and appointed as managers on the pa

The correspondence which follows shows the grounds upon which I based my assertion that General Burnside formally and earnestly requested the President to remove Mr. Stanton and General Halleck from the positions which they held in 1862-63. Now, there is no excuse which can justify a statement of the kind made by General Burnside to his Generals on this subject, and the effect upon some of them was more damaging than would at first sight appear. Having entire confidence in the truth of his statement, they looked upon him as a man whose boldness in bearding the lions in their den, entitled him to a certain admiration, but who had been destroyed by this very boldness. They considered him a doomed man, and that the end of hi

Southern people will attribute their overthrow whenever history comes to be truly written. In the statement this extract contains, that General J. E. Johnston failed to obey positive orders or directions to attack General Grant at Vicksburg, in 1863, or General Sherman at Atlanta, in 1864, there is a mistake, caused, no doubt, by Dr. Craven having misapprehended his distinguished patient, with whom, in his misfortunes, I know no one sympathizes more truly than General Johnston. I venture to rrection, in justice to a war-worn veteran who freely shed his blood in defence of the Southern cause, and who is too good a soldier to wilfully disregard an order of his military superior. The only approach to an order to attack General Grant in 1863, was given in a telegram from the Secretary of War, and this was modified, and virtually revoked, by a second telegraphic communication, received the same day. The gentleman who was at the time Secretary of War of the Confederate States, had too m
