oirs of Napoleon, as dictated by himself to Gourgaud and Montholon, have been translated into English. It is hardly necessary to remark that they contain all the general principles of military art and science. No military man should fail to study them thoroughly. The matter is so condensed, and important principles are embodied in so few words, that they are not easily understood by the ordinary reader, and probably will never be popular with the multitude. Essai geĊ„eral de Tactique, par Guibert. A work very popular in its day, but now far less valuable than the writings already mentioned.

ns of infantry, twelve squadrons of cavalry, five batteries of artillery, and three companies of engineers. Figure 10 represents the details of a camp of a battalion of infantry composed of eight companies. Figure 11 is the camp of a squadron of cavalry. Figure 12 is the camp of two batteries of foot artillery, or two companies of foot engineers. Figure 13 is the camp of two batteries of mounted artillery, or two companies of mounted sappers and pontoniers. On undulating or broken ground the arrangement and order of the general camp, as well as the details of the encampment of each arm, would admit of much variation. There are many valuable remarks on the various subjects comprised under the head of logistics, in the works of Jomini, Grimoard, Thiebault, Boutourlin, Guibert, Laroche Amyon, Bousmard, Ternay, Vauchelle, Odier, Audouin, Bardin, Chemevrieres, Daznan, Ballyet, Dremaux, Dupre d'aulnay, Morin, and in the published regulations and orders of the English army.

ct to avoid, but to follow and to fight the enemy. This movement, though no battle ensued, had the effect of restoring the confidence as well of the people as of the army. There are innumerable works in almost every language on elementary tactics; very few persons, however, care to read any thing further than the manuals used in our own service. Our system of infantry, cavalry, and artillery tactics is generally taken from the French; and also the course of engineer instruction, so far as matured, for sappers, miners, and pontoniers, is based on the French manuals for the varied duties of this arm. On Grand Tactics, or Tactics of Battles, the military and historical writings of General Jomini abound in most valuable instructions. Napoleon's memoirs, and the writings of Rocquancourt, Hoyer, Decker, Okouneff, Rogniat, Jocquinot-de-Presle, Guibert, Duhesme, Gassendi, Warnery, Baron Bohan, Lindneau, Maiseroy, Millor, and Ternay, are considered as being among the best authorities.
Major Cooper's abridged edition of Infantry Tactics, and with the system of Cavalry Tactics, adopted in our army; also with the directions for the use of these two arms in a campaign, and their employment on the battle-field, given in the writings of Jomini, Decker, Okouneff, Rocquancourt, and Jacquinot de Presle The following books may be referred to for further, information respecting the history, organization, use, and instruction of infantry and cavalry : Essai general de tactique. Guibert. Considerations generales sur l'infanterie francaise, par un general en retraite. A work of merit. De l'infanterie, par l'auteur de l'histoire de l'expedition de Russie. Histoire de la guerre de la peninsule. Foy. This work contains many interesting and valuable remarks on the French and English systems of tactics, and particularly on the tactics of Infantry.
