proof enough that they have been badly beaten. Had it--really been indecisive, they would have claimed a decided victory. It is only necessary to remember what McClellan did at Sharpsburg to be convinced of this. That affair was anything but indecisive McClellan was beaten with immense slaughter. He retreated in the night, and McClellan was beaten with immense slaughter. He retreated in the night, and the next day Gen. Lee could hear nothing of him; although he shelled all the woods in the neighborhood to start him from his covert. Had Gen. Lee followed him, beyond a question he would have continued his retreat. But the force of that General was too feeble, in comparison with the enormous Yankee army, to justify the risk. After holding the battle field twenty-four hours he withdrew, and McClellan, learning the fact by his scouts, sneaked up, occupied it, and wrote: "I think I may now say that we really have gained a victory." He was so crippled, in the meantime, that he would not follow, and was removed for not doing what was impossible. Can any one

With this division Gen. Reynold took part in nearly all the great battles in Virginia. Having been sent down to the Peninsula and marched to the front around Richmond, he was posted with his brigade on the extreme right of the Federal line, and, with McCall and Meade, sustained the first onslaught on McClellan's army at Mechanicville. He was in all of the seven days fight around this city, except the engagement at Malvern Hill, having the day previous been taken prisoner with General McCall and brought to this city. After his release he took command of the division of Pennsylvania reserves and led them in Pope's disastrous campaign. Soon after the close of that campaign he was communed by the Governor of Pennsylvania to the command of the militia raised for the defence of that State in Se
Exit Hooker. "Fighting Joe" has disappeared at last. He has gone the way of all Yankee Generals.-- He brings up the rear of that illustrious procession,--Scott, McDowell, McClellan, Pope, Burnside,--last and least, Hooker. The grim shades of the departed rise to welcome him to the infernal pit,--the Young Napoleon, probably in the advance, greeting Hooker with an iron grip of salutation, and a significant smile, suggestive of Congress committees, and bubble reputations built up by bluster and blowing, and burst at the cannon's month. Poor, dead Commanders in Chief of Doodledom,--there they lie all in a row,--six green graves, and greener occupants, festering in the winding sheet of their dead reputations. Tread lightly on their ashes, Major-General Meade, successor of Hooker, and, instead of imitating their vain glorious and hollow ways, bend thine ear with humility amongst the long grass that covers their creases, and-- "Hark from the tombs a doleful sound, Thinn
rom the Ohio to the sea, and was a suitable companion for Pierpont. He was elected to the same office under the new Government just established, with Boreman, of Taylor county, at its head. The letter was captured by one of our men in a recent expedition to Northwestern Virginia. It is addressed to William Bennett, Clerk of Randolph county. After some business matters, he says: "The delinquent sales of 1860 you need not copy. I may need it, or may find it at Richmond, as soon as McClellan opens the door, which I know he will in a few days." Crane, deeming the door as good as opened, proceeded in a most authoritative manner to indoctrinate Bennett with the proper feelings and policy towards guerillas and unsound persons — i. e., those who were loyal to Virginia. He says: I labored hard to return troops to Randolph and I hope now you will all aid in capturing Bill Harper and other guerilla parties. You all have no other trouble in Randolph but guerillas.
