Impatience a Bad General. The very worst counsellors for Generals in the field are an impatient populace. If we are to believe General Scott, the calamity that has recently overwhelmed the grand Yankee army was caused by surrendering his own opinions of policy and obeying the orders of the Yankee mob, headed by Greeley, Blair, and Wilson.

es next to your hearts, and, remembering it, I shall try to do better in my new field of labor. I bid you good by. Wilson, the Massachusetts Shoemaker. Says the New York Herald's Washington correspondent, July 25: Mr. Wilson, chairmMr. Wilson, chairman of the Military Committee of the Senate, offered a resolution yesterday, empowering the President to remove from office any military officer who should prove inefficient in the service. Senators were ready to vote for it, but Mr. Wilson insisted Mr. Wilson insisted as usual upon making a speech, in doing which he made a sweeping denunciation of military officers for the Bull Run stampede, which did not relish with some Senators. Mr. Sherman rebuked him for his language in open Senate. Mr. Brigadier General WiMr. Brigadier General Wilson, it is said, made double-quick time from Bull Run on Sunday. If that is true, it ill-becomes him, as chairman of the Military Committee of the United States, to censure an inferior officer for doing the same thing. the Rich Mountain "Hero
