we press on, and possibly prevent an utter rout. All this preparation is a matter of time. Hallack is an old engineer--one of your "book men," and he is advancing "by the card," spading as he comes Perhaps a mile and a half a day, or even less, is his greatest speed. His advance is already within two and a half miles of our entrenchments at certain points. There they will remain until the rear forces are in position. --Fighting between their pickets and ours takes place daily, but, as at Mason's and Munson's Hills on the Potomac, with no significant results. This is the "small fry" of the campaign, and the parties engaged consider themselves fortunate in being thus relieved from the monotony of camp. The great advantage we possess over the enemy is in our ability to move our entire army to a given point within three or four hours. Thus we can concentrate rapidly and effectively. The Federals, on the contrary, are compelled to make long detours, which occupy a day or more.
