onderful. Secretary Cameron boosted last December that he had raised an army of 660,000 men. It was more, he said, than Napoleon had done during the "Hundred Days." Everything was prepared to "crush out" the rebellion. It could not withstand the weight of such an enormous force. --The Yankee papers took up the cry. All the arts of lying and exaggeration peculiar to that people were resorted to exalt the magnitude and strength of their armaments. After the affairs of Roanoke Island and Fort Donelson, the crushing out of the rebellion was spoken of as a fact already accomplished. Nothing could exceed the pomposity with which McClellan's immense army was heralded on its way to glory and conquest. But after it was beaten — after it had fled under shelter of its gunboats, with the loss of forty or fifty thousand men, it was then represented as a mere handful, and the rebels, who before were a small, disorganised mob, were described as a powerful host, numbering 217,000 or 220,000 men.
