ere has been a still greater divergence in the conduct of European nations from that practical impartiality which alone deseby foreign powers to the two great maritime nations of Western Europe, and that the governments of these two nations had agrce in so shaping the general exercise of neutral rights in Europe, as to render them subservient to the purpose of aiding onhad then elapsed since the arrival of our Commissioners in Europe, and neutral nations were fairly entitled to a reasonable and has, under arrangements made with the other nations of Europe, not only denied our just claim of admission into the famidable. The opportunity for obtaining the tacit assent of European governments to a line of conduct which ignores the obliga be binding on us; and, in my opinion, our relations with European nations are, therefore, now controlled exclusively by theeluctant concession to the demands of outraged humanity in Europe,) has just been put in a new command at Norfolk, where hel
Doc. 61.-battle of Gettysburgh. New-York, March 1, 1864. The battle of Gettysburgh is the decisive battle of this war. It not only saved the North from invasion, but turned the tide of victory in our favor. The opinion of Europe on the failure of the rebellion dates from this great conflict. How essential, then, that its real history should be known! Up to this moment no clear narrative has appeared. The sketches of the press, the reports of Generals Halleck and Meade, and the oration of Mr. Everett give only phases of this terrible struggle, and that not very correctly. To supply this hiatus, I send you a connected and, I hope, lucid review of its main features. I have not ventured to touch on the thrilling incidents and affecting details of such a strife, but have confined myself to a succinct relation of its principal events and the actors therein. My only motive is to vindicate history — do honor to tile fallen and justice to the survivors when unfairly impeached.
, Huntsville: dear Sawyer: In my former letter I have answered all your questions save one, and that relates to the treatment of inhabitants, known or suspected to be hostile, or secesh. This is in truth the most difficult business of our army, as it advances and occupies the Southern country. It is almost impossible to lay down rules, and I invariably leave this whole subject to the local commanders, but am willing to give them the benefit of my acquired knowledge and experience. In Europe, whence we derive our principles of war, as developed by their histories, wars are between kings or rulers, through hired armies, and not between peoples. These remain, as it were, neutral, and sell their produce to whatever army is in possession. Napoleon, when at war with Prussia, Austria, and Russia, bought forage and provisions of the inhabitants, and consequently had an interest to protect farms and factories which ministered to his wants. In like manner, the allied armies in Franc
r of the Revolution; and when negoes were taken by the English, they were not considered otherwise than as property and plunder. Emancipation of slaves as a war measure has been severely condemned and denounced by the, most eminent publicists in Europe and the United States. The United States, in their diplomatic relations, have ever maintained, says the Northern authority just quoted, that slaves were private property, and for them, as such, they have repeatedly received compensation from Et progress, will require the enemy ten years to overrun. The enemy is not free from difficulties. With an enormous debt, the financial convulsion, long postponed, is surely coming. The short crops in the United States and abundant harvest in Europe will hasten what was otherwise inevitable. Many sagacious persons at the North discover in the usurpations of their Government the certain overthrow of their liberties. A large number revolt from the unjust war waged upon the South, and would g
the twenty thousand yield the contest before they reach the point of exhaustion. Charge of Bayonets.--If the soldier forgets all else that I have written or may write, let him not forget what I say upon this head. It has been said that in all Bonaparte's battles there were but three instances of a fight with bayonets. With these exceptions, whenever he or his adversaries brought the battle to a hand-to-hand fight, one or the other party invariably gave way. Now he fought every nation in Europe, and, with one exception, always with inferior numbers. The Turks he fought in Egypt and Syria--a barbarous people. At Acre, he fought the Turks, assisted by the English. I do not remember that his troops ever recoiled from a charge of bayonets. Be that as it may, we all know that up to his Russian campaign, his battles were little else than one unbroken series of victories. I have inquired of a number of our officers and soldiers whether they ever witnessed a fight with bayonets during
baffled cupidity. But for this master passion of their nature, an honorable and speedy peace would be easy. The war has fully developed all the purposes, and you now know the fate that awaits you in the event of subjugation. Your liberties will utterly perish. Your State organization will be blotted out. All your property of every description will be confiscated; for all of us have participated in the revolution. Your lands will be divided out among the banditti from the North and from Europe, who have invaded our State. A free negro population will be established in your midst, who will be your social equals and military governors. Negro guards will, at their pleasure, give you passes' and safe conducts, or arrest you, to be tried and punished by negro commandants and magistrates. And to these, yourselves, your wives and children will be menial laborers and slaves, except those of you whom the malice of your enemies shall reserve for the dungeon or the gallows. Such is the d
lunteers for remorseless death. They have rushed upon fate, and struggled in voluntary audacity with the grim monster. Let them die, not by court-martial, not as prisoners, but as hostes humani generis by general order from the President, Commander-in-Chief. Will the Cabinet and President have the nerve to do what lies palpably before them? This is the question in all mouths. What concerns the people most now is not whether its public officers will come out of this war with brilliant European reputations — not whether, after leading the people out of Egypt, they shall have the reputation that Moses preserved, of being very meek — but they wish protection to themselves, their wives and children, and their honor. --Richmond Whig.

As was anticipated, those located about the confederate capital very naturally were, and still are, fearfully excited at the a
