mes will be dear to your countrymen forever. John Pope, Major-General Commanding. This order wa all of the time. One day a visitor alluded to Pope's orders, and said: Well, General, here is a ne. Jones and a strong reconnoitering force which Pope had sent across the Rapidan. Learning that PopPope's line was considerably extended, Jackson determined to strike his centre at Culpeper Courthouse b some sharp controversy at the time between General Pope and General Banks as to who was responsibleley campaign, and to give their new friend, General Pope, an opportunity of seeing something else saregard's army on his retreat from Corinth. [General Pope two years afterward denied that he ever sen never offer to bet again on any movement where Pope is in command on our side and Lee and Jackson othe army. The battle of Cedar Run caused General Pope to pause in his career of seeing the backs lry and their gallant comrades, and General Fitz John Porter made the scapegoat of Pope's blunders. [9 more...]

of our official reports and a little less reliance on McCabe's Lee as Confederate authority, would have helped the historic value of the book. On the whole, we commend it as greatly superior to many similar publications. We are indebted to the courteous author for our copy. The Publishers — Charles Scribner's Sons, New York — have sent us the following additional volumes of their Campaigns of the civil war: III. The Peninsula, by General Alexander S. Webb; IV. The Army under Pope, by John C. Ropes, Esq.; V. The Antietam and Fredericksburg, by General Francis Winthrop Palfrey; VI. Chancellorsville and Gettysburg, by General Abner Doubleday. Each 1 volume, 12mo, with Maps. Price, $1. We propose to give these volumes a careful study and a candid review, in which task we have been promised the aid of one of our ablest military critics. Meantime we may say that we have dipped into them sufficiently to see that they are of very unequal merit — the volumes by Mr. John<

, and which seem to be appreciated by a constantly increasing circle of readers. General Fitzhugh Lee is diligently at work on a History of the army of Northern Virginia, A gallant and able soldier, who was an active participant in well nigh every battle that army ever fought, General Lee wields a facile pen, and could not fail to give us a book of deep interest. But those who have read his exceedingly able and pains-taking papers on Gettysburg and Chancellorsville will expect from General Lee a book of real historic value. And they will not be disappointed. We have received General Jacob D. Cox's account of Second Bull Run, as connected with the Fitz John Porter case, and propose to give it a careful study and a candid review; but we shall be greatly mistaken if this defence of the court martial that convicted Porter does not confirm us in our opinion that they were guilty of a great outrage on an able and gallant soldier in making him the scapegoat of Pope's imbecility.

aken in reverse. We found him first on the blood-stained field of Antietam — almost at the close of his career, instead of at the beginning. The world knows how he fought there. We found him at Kernstown fighting one to four--fighting, falling back, grimly giving way to fight again. We saw him strike the Federal armies right and left in the Valley, and fill Washington with white faces. We found him at Fredericksburg on Lee's right; at Chancellorsville in Hooker's rear; at Manassas behind Pope, on his flank, in his front. We have found him at Gaines's Mill. Fate waited for him before striking a last blow. It was the hammer in his grasp which shattered the Federal position. Without him Longstreet and Hill would have been pressed back, routed, annihilated. A Christian in faith — a child in his sympathies — a General who cared not for the world's admiration so much as for the comfort of any single man who followed him in his wonderful marches. He had the courage of a lion and <

r as the garden of the gods, tempted thousands to leave the ranks and wander in inglorious ease through the rich country. All these causes combined, dwindled the Army of Northern Virginia away to a mere frazzle, as General Gordon expressed it, and Lee fought the battle at Sharpsburg with skeleton regiments, brigades and divisions. I copy from my note book. * * * * * * On the march. On the 20th day of August, 1862, our brigade (Kemper's) left Gordonsville to open the campaign against Pope. The orders were to leave all knapsacks behind, and to travel in light marching order with three day's rations in our haversacks, a blanket on our shoulders, and eighty rounds of cartridges in our boxes and pockets. Little we knew then that it would be two whole months to a day before we beheld our scanty wardrobe again, and for more than eight weeks we would be without a single change of underclothing, and that our attire on the return would shame the famous seven beggars of Coventry, an

ne; the culmination of the vulgarity, moral as well as formal, of the unworthiness and ignobleness that had so long dishonored more and more deeply the chair of Washington. Lincoln's uncleanness of language and thought would hardly have been tolerated in a Southern bar. Or, again, take the favorites of the North--the best known names in the camp and Cabinet — Sheridan and Hunter, whose ravages recall the devastation of the Palatinate, political rowdies like Banks and Butler, braggarts like Pope and Hooker, or even professional soldiers like Meade, Sigel, Sherman. These are the household words of the North, and any one Southern chief of the second rank — Ewell, Early, Fitzhugh Lee, Hardee, Polk, Hampton, Gilmer, Gordon — alone outweighs them all. Needless to remind you that among the twenty millions--mostly fools--was no man whom even party spirit dared liken to the stern, simple Virginia professor, the Cavalier-Puritan, whose brigade of recruits stood like a stone wall under the co<
