broken-down and sick men, some in comfortable houses, but more in barns, stables, and forsaken dwellings. Now is the time for the good Samaritan to travel this road, and he will find his pennies, his beast, his on his kind words, and his intercessions, all useful. We heard en route numerous and most startling rumors as to the progress and operations of our army, as, for instance, that Jackson was in Baltimore, that the Secessionists of that city had taken it without a struggle; that Washington had been evacuated, and that our victorious army was pressing on towards Philadelphia. Had we believed half we heard, we must have renounced the idea of overtaking the army short of Boston. It was really amusing to notice how in the most remote and out of the way region we passed through, the most liberal rumors prevailed. At Front Royal they tell of their late Yankee Provost Marshal, who, when he first arrived, was very impolite, and subsequently gave as his apology that he was utt

In the crisis the first battle of Bull Run, the President was engaged in settling paltry claims of partisans to post-offices; and, fourteen months later, when Washington was in hourly danger of capture, was busy making up partisan lists of Tax Collectors, and Assessors — selecting them upon occasion from the exposed and condemned shoddy contractors. One Army, at a conjuncture when the fortunes of the whole contest were depending upon it, has been sacrificed to political jealousies. Another General whose name has always been associated with defeat has been kept in command by the Nepotism of Cabinet ministers! All the while the energies of the Govern
