The Daily Dispatch: August 1, 1861., [Electronic resource], General Toombs' Brigade--Second Georgia Regiment. (search)
Impatience a Bad General. The very worst counsellors for Generals in the field are an impatient populace. If we are to believe General Scott, the calamity that has recently overwhelmed the grand Yankee army was caused by surrendering his own opinions of policy and obeying the orders of the Yankee mob, headed by Greeley, Blair, and Wilson. The mob, under these doughty commanders, drove him into a battle which was little better than slaughter and ruin. A like impatience prevails among the Southern people for a forward movement upon Washington city. This movement is doubtless in preparation; but we had better leave it to our Generals to choose the time and manner of making it. It is the highest wisdom to profit by an enemy's experience, and it would be as criminal as unheard of, if, after witnessing so signal an instance of ruin from fighting before being ready for it, we should commit the same blunder and run the hazard of the same discomfiture. What though it might ha

A Move in the right direction. --The Young Men's Christian Association of this city, (with the co-operation of similar institutions throughout the Southern Confederacy,) have opened a depot on Main street, just above Col. Blair's store, for the reception of all articles sent here for the relief of the wounded and sick soldiers. By reference to the advertisement of their committee, the public will perceive that all articles sent to their care will be properly distributed, and will reach, without delay, those for whom they are intended. This committee will attend to receiving articles sent from any part of our Confederacy; and inasmuch as organizations are being formed in every part of Virginia and the other States for the purpose of ministering to the wants of those who have been stricken down while defending our homes and altars, we are assured that the donations of our friends could not reach the various hospitals sooner or with more safety than through the agency of this comm

en. Scott was overridden by the Cabinet and the New York Tribune in making the recent attack, the Times says: It is known, and need not longer be concealed, that there is in the Cabinet an element of intense hatred to Gen. Scott. Perhaps Mr. Blair embodies and represents it more thoroughly than any other member.--He has made no secret of it, but has often, in spite of the gross breach of official propriety which such an act involved, denounced the General in public places as utterly unfi disastrous counsels. Whereupon the New York Express says: Revelations these! And what revelations! Read! Ponder! Digest! The Times' editor is perfectly right in this: That the President should forth with either dispose of this Mr. Blair, or of General Scott. If a Cabinet officer cannot hold his tongue, in derogation of a great General, in supreme command of the Army, and thus be damaging his morale in the Army, that must be inspired with confidence in the Chief in order to succ
