aterial. But enough has been said to show the reader that in Gen. Wheeler the country possesses a zealous, energetic and able officer. He is a small man, and exceedingly modest, and is content to do his duty in whatever circumstances he may be placed. He has kept himself clear of all intrigues for or against others, being content to mind his own business, and to do his work at any point and under any officer, according to the orders of his superiors in command. Like Jackson, Longstreet, Hood and Cleburne, he looks to the good, of the service and the success of our army, rather than to his own selfish interests. The rise of such men, like the stars in the Heavens, may be slow; but they are sure to reach the zenith at last, whilst those restless, selfish spirits which seek to dazzle the public eye by their fitful meteoric light, will as certainly disappear in the night of oblivion. Fortune stands ever ready to bestow her favors upon Temperance, Energy, and Genius. Sallust.
