e first question that everybody asks is, why it was done? and to this I can only reply that our Generals, who have thus far conducted the campaign with entire success, deemed it expedient to do so. When we remember that our army is commanded by Johnston, the greatest General of the age, and by Beauregard, the most skillful engineer, and by Smith, a man of great ability and thorough training, we can well afford to accept expediency as a reason for any movement that may seem singular and uncalledrom all, except the commanding Generals.

I will venture to say that the enthusiasm and eagerness exhibited here on the 7th would have disabused even old Abe's mind of the idea of subjugation, if he could have witnessed it. On the next visit of his nigger, stealers we will be better prepared, as we have now several guns mounted that range something less than a hundred miles. "Much pleasure is expressed at the appointment of Col. Munford on the staff of General Johnston. He will undoubtedly prove a valuable aid. Several shots of new invention were tried to-day, and I believe the experiments proved very satisfactory. The ball would be an ugly customer to meet, and will certainly leave its card wherever it calls.--We are fully prepared for the vandals whenever they choose to come. I expect a general attack will soon be made on us, as the lying gun-boats, I understand, have reported an immense number killed by their firing, and our batteries as ineffic
