West Pointers in the two armies. --From a list of the West Point graduates who are officers in the armies of the United States and Confederate States, it appears that there are in the U. S. army, Major-Generals, 17; Brigadier Generals, 24; in the C. S. army, Generals, 5, (besides A. S. Johnston, killed at Shiloh;) Major-Generals, 18; Brigadier-Generals, 41. From this list, which ends with 1848, it appears that we have 64 Generals from West Point in our army, while the U. S. have but 41. It was no idle or unmeaning boast of President Davis that he had the choice of the officers of the old army.
