which General Hardee held at Jonesboro' in accordance with orders. A severe and most terrible battle ensued during the day. General Hardee being in command of the two corps in position, placed his own corps in charge of Cleburneron the left, and Lee's corps under the charge of that commander. Six corps of the Yankee army advanced against the line across the Macon and Western railroad, and penetrating on our right almost to the McDonough road. The advance of Sherman's forces was checked and their assaults repelled with the usual bravery that has ever marked our veterans. At nightfall, the line was nearly in the same position that it occupied in the morning. During the night, Lee's corps, by order of General Hood, moved to the right to form a connection with Stewart's corps and the militia forces in Atlanta. Thus a large amount of the effective strength of Hardee's command was withdrawn and his line fearfully weakened. Early on Thursday, the Yankee army, consisting of s

But you have overlooked the Nitre and Mining Bureau; the secret service, and especially the hospitals--where armies of young men are paid to get rich out of the poor soldiers and the Government without risk to their precious persons. Would not old men and cripples answer as well for stewards, ward masters and general agents as young ones; and cannot the Surgeon-General be induced to make the change? Our armies need reinforcements promptly, and every department of the Government should give up their young and able-bodied men and supply their places with cripples and old men.
