ection with Jeff. Davis? nay, speak of Jeff first, as if he were the senior officer? Such unfilial and irreverent treatment from the Old Gentleman's pet may well wring from his agonized bosom the exclamation: " How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is to have a thankless child!" Possibly, however, Sherman meant no discourtesy to his official superior. It may be that he does not believe in a Devil, any more than a Divine Providence, about which he is said to have expressed himself at Atlanta in blasphemous contempt. The New England race has become, of late, equally incredulous of Heaven and Hell. The appearance of Jeff. Davis supplies a void place in their theology. The Pantheistic ideas which they have adopted discover in Nature, in all her forms, a God; but there was still wanting a Devil. Jeff. Davis came and supplied the vacuum. When a New England man says "Go to the Devil," he only means, Go to Jeff. Davis. The Confederate President looms up like the Prince of Pandem

The river is fifteen feet on the shoals, and falling slowly. Thomas's account of his campaign against Hood — a Grand Combination. Letters received in Washington from General Thomas give a brief history of his Tennessee campaign. They show that he desired to accompany General Sherman to Atlanta, and thought another officer the proper person to conduct affairs against Hood. General Sherman, however, put full confidence in him, and all the initiatory steps of the campaign were made in obedience to his orders. General Thomas says the campaign would have been different if Sherman had not felt obliged to take most of the cavalry in his department, and that Hood's escape with any part of his army was mainly due to that cause. He explains at length the reasons for his protracted delay
