History of the army of the Cumberland. By Chaplain Van Horne. published by Robert Clark & Co., Cincinnati, Ohio. Review by General D. H. Maury. The History of the Army of the Cumberland follows hard upon Sherman's Memoirs of his own life and campaigns, and differs from that work as widely as the character and nature of the commander of the Army of the Cumberland differed from that of the General of the Army. The publication of General Sherman is not without its value of a procreative sort. It may be likened to that stimulating fertilizer, from the Chinco Islands, for, unsavory in itself, and yielding no fruit to the toiler after historical truth, yet it draws from all the land rich stores of facts for the future historians of the great struggle for power between the States of the South and the States of the North. The very vain glory and self conceit which breathe from every line of Sherman's remarkable narrative are eminently provocative of the rejoinders which clever and
unattended by loss on our side. I have to report as killed by shots from the cross-trees of the schooner, while the boats were approaching, boatswain's mate Charles H. Lamphere and John R. Herring, seaman and captain of the howitzer, two of the best men in our ship; and marine John Smith — the first man to board the schooner, and who behaved most gallantly — was, by a sad mistake, having lost his distinguishing mark, killed by one of our own men. We have wounded, probably mortally, seaman R. Clark and E. K. Osborne; severely, nine other seamen. Captain Reynolds received a severe contusion on his shoulder, and midshipman Higginson had the end of his thumb shot off. Lieutenants Russell and Blake had narrow escapes, the flesh of each being grazed by one or more musket balls. It is not an easy task to select individual instances of bravery or daring where all behaved so gallantly. The officers unite in giving great credit to the coolness and bravery with which they were supported by

The part of Missouri in which Platte County is situated borders on Leavenworth County, Kansas, the Missouri River only being the dividing line; and as long as the rebels are allowed to roam about in the former county, committing depredations without let or hindrance, so long will this part of Kansas be hourly in danger of a raid from such lawless vagabonds.

A Missouri correspondent of the New York Herald, writing under date of December 27, says: I noticed yesterday a series of structures occupied by one of Colonel Ellis's First Missouri Cavalry companies, which combined the lightness of the tent with the warmth of a dwelling.

of Mr. Sherman, the bill to increase the number of Cadets at West Point was taken up, the question being on the amendment that cadets be dismissed if found deficient in their studies. It was disagreed. Mr. Trumbull opposed the passage of the bill. He believed it was owing to West Point that the war languished as it has. If West Point was abolished, military tactics would be taught all over the country. He was opposed to increasing the number of cadets, especially at this time. Mr. Clark said he should not vote for the bill now, but he could not join in the tirade against West Point. Treason had been taught more in the Senate of the United States than in the school at West Point. After considerable discussion, the question was then taken on the passage of the bill, and resulted — yeas 12, nays 25; no the bill was rejected.
