he enemy. Our brigade, under General Donelson, moved out two miles and formed a line of battle; but for some reason the attack was not made, and we returned to camp to await further orders. Sunday, May 25th.—On picket. Guard duty is very heavy. Our company only report twenty-eight men for duty, and the detail for guard to-day is fifteen. The army again moved out this evening, but in a short time returned. Sharp skirmishing continues along the lines. Why does not Beauregard move upon Halleck? We would drive him into the Tennessee river at the point of the bayonet. Our movements are tantalizing. May 26th.—The regiment received orders to burn all extra baggage, and allow only four tents to a company. What does it mean? Surely we are not going to retreat from Corinth? We were also ordered to cook two days rations. We moved out about one mile in advance of the breastworks, where the Maynard Rifles were thrown forward as sharp-shooters. We are on duty for twenty-four hours

oa, in every one of which engagements a soldier of dash should have gobbled Early's entire command and sent him to Washington, and moved with the remainder of his command across the mountains and joined Grant. Sheridan's dispatches to Grant and Halleck up to the battle of Winchester indicate a caution amounting to timidity. What was accomplished at the end of a six months campaign should have been done effectually at Winchester. History will yet vindicate Early's efforts. But friends in td and fifty men and a battery had driven their best division of cavalry back upon their infantry, and we had bearded the lion in his den and returned to camp without being pressed. On page 135, Pond's book, we take the following. Sheridan to Halleck, official, August 23d: My position at best was a bad one, and as there is much dependent upon this army, I fell back and took a new position at Halltown. Same date, August 23d, from same to General Auger: I do not believe Pickett sand Field's

land region of Mississippi. With his usual caution, celerity, and success he executed this retreat, which is always a difficult military operation to effect without disaster, when having to elude the grasp of an enterprising and vigilant enemy. Whilst at Corinth General Beauregard, by dint of excessive efforts and by the magnetism of his popularity, had succeeded in concentrating again fifty thousand men, with whom he had to contend against one hundred and twenty-five thousand under General Halleck, as first, and General Grant, as second in command. Before retreating, as we have related, from this eminently important strategic point, which he had to abandon, General Beauregard, with his well-known sagacity and his boldness of conception, had devised a scheme to strike a powerful blow at one of the numerous corps that he had in front. It was to be a flank movement, and was only partially successful, on account of the inefficiency of a leading guide and the slowness of one of the

His advisers, Stanton and Halleck, dominated by jealousy and hatred of McClellan, hadfend the capital. During the ensuing fourteen days Halleck was constantly telegraphing McClellan that he must y superior to his own forces. He so represented to Halleck and Staunton again and again. In the battles beforrtunity to attack the capital. On September 9th, Halleck telegraphed to McClellan: It may be the enemy's obj let him get off without being hurt. On the 13th Halleck telegraphed him: I am of opinion that the enemy wilre on that day investing Harpers Ferry. On the 14th Halleck telegraphed: Scouts report a large force still on tkson, completed the investment of Harpers Ferry. Halleck and Stanton were telegraphing McClellan with hot wies. It failed in the last, first by the blunder of Halleck in retaining possession of Harpers Ferry, when he o
