ht and more determined to do the wrong, I asked his comrades, Do you know whether this man ever had a mother or sisters, or have any of you ever had them? The allusion to these holy relations caused him to leave very abruptly, and the others followed, after making such appropriations as pleased each one. I had determined not to mention these most unpleasant circumstances, but on the return of the expedition on Monday evening following, Coles' men (now almost as distinguished as Geary's or Pope's, &c.) called and were again suppllied with food; but they insisted on searching the house--we had Government property. A mind of the most ordinary perception might believe that the Confederate Government would not make this insecure place a depot either for clothing or arms, and after the experience of the last fortnight no Rebel would seek rest or protection here, where it failed in being a sanctuary for our own sons, who have only once before visited home and loved ones, while the countr

e Army of Northern Virginia, are very handsomely done, and we take off our hat to the gallant soldier who could see these qualities in Rebels, and has had the moral courage to publish his convictions. His criticisms of our especial pets--General John Pope, General Halleck, and General Milroy--are as scathingly severe as they are fully sustained by the facts. He very ably defends General McClellan from charges made against him in connection with Pope's disasters, and makes a most triumphanPope's disasters, and makes a most triumphant vindication of General Fitz. John Porter from the charges under which that gallant soldier has suffered for these long years. And now we must regret that so good a book should be marred by some very serious blemishes, which our space does not allow us now to point out, but to which we shall hereafter fully pay our respects. We hold ourselves prepared to show that in his treatment of the relative numbers of the two armies he has fallen into the almost universal error of Northern writers in

In his official report Pope distinctly states that it appeared after the ballery east of the Blue Ridge at that date.

General Pope was ever modest in estimating his own numbesula, and though they dwindled to 18,000 in General Pope's estimate, Porter alone had 20,000 men on September 12th, two weeks later. General Pope states that on August 30th his effective force had show great straggling and demoralization. General Pope attributes the diminution to the fatigues aled, wounded and missing of the day before. If Pope's movements had been exhausting, surely General[9 more...]

could not appreciate him. Unable to understand him or to control him to do that which his convictions forbade, they mistrusted and feared and hated and deposed him. The clearness with which McClellan divined Lee's movements after the defeat of Pope — the celerity and masterly skill with which he restored discipline and confidence to Pope's routed army, and so moved its corps as to concentrate upon Lee while near half his army was a days' march from the field of battle — must ever rank him hiPope's routed army, and so moved its corps as to concentrate upon Lee while near half his army was a days' march from the field of battle — must ever rank him high as a general. It is true he did enjoy the rare privilege of having before him Lee's orders for the movements of his army, which were so explicit that McClellan was enabled to direct the movements of his own with absolute confidence and accuracy. In summing up the results of the battle of Antietam or Sharpsburg, Mr. Curtis has had but little regard to historic accuracy, and it is surprising that a writer so intelligent and industrious as he should not have availed himself of the abundant<

re the important campaigns and battles of 1862, in which it participated, and as it happens that these returns are not among those in the Confederate archives at Washington, to which Colonel Taylor had access, and from which he has given abstracts in his Four year's with General Lee, I send you herewith abstracts from the returns of the division, which will show its strength in the Valley campaign of 1862, at the Seven Days Battles around Richmond, and in the campaign of August, 1862, against Pope. The returns of Lawton's brigade, when it joined Ewell's division, will give the means of estimating the strength of that brigade in the Seven Days Battles, about which some persons appear to be under a great misapprehension. I send also the official report of General Trimble of the operations of his brigade about Manassas, in August, 1862, which happens not to be published among the reports of the operations of the Army of Northern Virginia for 1862, owing to the fact that the report was

d. See my report to General Jackson by order. August 27th My brigade occupied three of the old batteries and redoubts at the Junction. Captain Latimer's battery warmly engaged this day with the enemy, and very effectively dispersing several bodies of the enemy's infantry and cavalry, marched to Centreville unopposed and back to the Junction. August 28th Marched with the army to old Manassas battle-ground, and thence to near Page-land, where, at sunset, the advance columns of General Pope's army were attacked by Jackson's and Ewell's divisions--General A. P. Hill being near Sudley's mills. My brigade occupied the left wing of our attacking force--General Lawton's brigade on my right, General Jackson's division on the extreme right. General Early's brigade, not engaged that night, as the enemy had not advanced to his front, was a fourth of a mile to my left, and somewhat in the rear. On the order of General Jackson to advance, my brigade moved forward in beautiful or

o can doubt the result had not our glorious leader been deprived of both his right arm and his left? When Jackson fell, when Stuart was no more, brave hearts still hoped, but 'twas hoping against hope. I cannot now follow Stuart as he led our cavalry through the seven days battles around Richmond; at Cedar mountain; at the second battle of Manassas; through the first Maryland campaign, and at Fredericksburg. I cannot do more than make bare mention of his midnight descent upon the rear of Pope's army at Catlett's station — or of his expedition into Pennsylvania, when he again electrified both nations by passing for the second time around McClellan's army as it lay on the banks of the Potomac — returning to the Virginia shore without the loss of a man or a horse, having accomplished one of the most wonderful marches on record. Nor is it my intention to enter into the details of the Chancellorsville campaign. The distinguished officer who, one year ago, spoke to you from this place

me length, I heard some one call out, Give that soldier a pass. Upon this the adjutant-general came out, asked my name and to what point I wanted a pass. I replied to Camp Ashby. He replied that he did not know where Camp Ashby was, and that he had no authority to give a pass beyond their pickets. Now feeling certain that I would get a pass, I became more confident, and told him that a United States officer had pledged his word that I should return in safety. At that time a detachment of Pope's forces occupied Luray, and I insisted on having a pass that would protect me from capture if I should happen to meet any of their troops in the main Valley. This gave occasion for a second conversation, this time between the general and his adjutant-general. Upon coming out, he again asked me my name, gave me my pass, and bidding them good evening, I started back to town. By her invitation I took supper with Mrs. Heironimus, and at sunset rode out of town, showing my pass to the picket
