f is, or ought to be, in and around Charleston; Georgia, 32,000, one-half or more in and around Savannah; Arkansas and Louisiana 40,000, more than one-half with Price and Van-Dorn, and in and around New Orleans. This distribution would leave Mississippi 18,000, Tennessee 30,000 and Alabama 10,000, to make up the army at Island No.10, and at and around Corinth. We all remember how the force at Bowling Green was magnified last fall into 60,000, 80,000, and even 100,000 men; yet after Fort Donelson was supplied with 12 or 15 regiments from this point, the retreating military rabble that fled from Bowling Green on the approach of Buell, and that halted at Nashville only long enough to throw the people into panic and dismay, numbered, perhaps, less than 6,000 or 8,000. And so at Columbus, the reported strength of 40,000 dwindled into 12,000 or 15,000, when the defences at that point were abandoned. It is not prudent, of course, to underrate the force of the enemy at any given p
ip of the South, to whom he can and must speak the truth. Without supposing him to be an honester man than Mr. Lincoln, or an abler man than Mr. Stanton, it is quite clear that a far higher value attaches to his assertions and to his language than theirs. What they may say signifies little; it is spoken to Bunkum. We know that it affords no real proof either of what they have done or what they mean to do. Mr. Davis's tone, as well as his position, offer a tolerable guarantee for the sincerity and earnestness of his meaning. The Standard then enlogizes the resolute tone of Jeff. Davis's message, and concludes thus: "The Northerners have shown themselves as incapable of bearing success as of enduring adversity. Their triumph at Fort Donelson has made them mad with vain-glory. We believe, with some of the best informed and most thoughtful of those whose personal interests are deeply involved, that the hope of peace is, for the present, as remote and doubtful as ever."
