We will all simply freeze. Some nights ago half the men could not sleep at all. Having to put blankets under them to keep them off the damp ground, they have nothing scarcely to cover with. --They have no straw even. This is sad to think of, but much sadder, I tell you, to witness. There is very bad management somewhere. The "sick list" already is telling a tale.

We therefore advise, invoke, and exhort, the said Johnston, Beauregard and Magruder, to disperse the enemy forthwith, or else disperse to their own respective places of abode. If they do not capture Washington forthwith, and annex Pennsylvania and New York to the Southern Confederacy before Christmas, let them give place to th
