he enemy even has no power to prevent this, for our success is his ruin. Like the car of Juggernaut, his progress is onward, and must crush whatever it meets with. Be, then, true to yourselves, and Roman in your virtue. Sacrifice, if necessary, in value, one half of your negroes and all of your crops, to save the other half. The law does not permit the Commanding General to leave any thing that will benefit the enemy within his grasp. He must, therefore, destroy what will benefit the foe. Save him this painful necessity, and remove your negroes beyond the reach of the enemy without a moment's delay. This appeal is made to all those who reside in counties within fifty miles of the coast, from Corpus Christi and Galveston, inclusive. Should any other portion of the coast or counties still more interior require this sacrifice at the hands of the planters, timely notice will be given of the same. J. B. Magruder. Major-General Commanding District of Texas, New-Mexico, and Arizona.
