s of France — we recollect not whether it was Richelieu or Mazarin — always asked, when a General was proposed to him, "Est il heureux! "--"is he fortunate?" There was philosophy in the question, for soldiers do not like to fight under an unlucky General, as sailors do not fight with half their natural spirit in an unlucky ship. If Gen. Bragg had been the greatest Captain that ever wore a sword, it would have been unjust to him and to his soldiers to have retained him in command. Of Gen. Hardee, who succeeds Gen. Bragg, we have never heard anything that is not highly creditable to him as a soldier and a man. He is in the very prime of life, about forty-five years of age, in full possession of his faculties, in excellent health, prompt, energetic, and daring. He graduated in 1838, and was several times breveted during the Mexican war for gallantry and meritorious conduct. He has been in constant service during this war, and has participated in as many battles perhaps as any man
not number less than 85,000 veteran troops. The Confederate army, under Bragg, Hardee, and Breckinridge, did not number half so many. Longstreet's Virginia divisionright wing, about 10 o'clock, where he encountered that superb soldier, Lieut. General Hardee, who commanded on the right, whilst Major General Breckenridge commanded on the left. Hardee's command embraced Cleburne's, Walker's, (commanded by Gen. Gist, Gen. Walker being absent,) Cheatham's, and Stevenson's divisions. Breckinrids, and Hindman's, commanded by Patton Anderson. The enemy's first assault upon Hardee was repulsed with great slaughter, as was his second, though made with double lj. Gen. Cleburne, a true son of the Emerald lsle, and his he role division. Gen. Hardee saved the army from a disastrous rout, and added fresh laurels to his brow. They and their Chief were the last to leave the ridge. The day was lost. Hardee still maintained his ground, but no success of the right wing could restore the
Rebecca Gordon Co., Ga., Nov. 28. Returning to the narrative of events alluded to above, I would take the reader with me to the close of the battle of Missionary Ridge, which was fought on Wednesday, the 25th inst., Gen. Hardee, who commanded the right wing, had repulsed every attack of the enemy, had inflicted heavy loss upon him, and he and his men were congratulating themselves upon their complete and brilliant victory, when Gen'l H., who had passed to his left, (the centre of therved out to the men from the depot, and the trains sent forward. Some of the stores were shipped off by the railroad; the remainder was destroyed. The army was put in motion by two o'clock at night on the road to Ringgold, and Gen. Bragg and Gen. Hardee left at daylight next morning. The road was as had as it could be, and but for the friendly light afforded by the moon on that and the preceding night the army could not have effected its escape.

Hardee. --It has been the fortune of this General always to whip his share of the fight, no matter what may be the general results of the day — At Shiloh he drove the enemy to the Tennessee river, and would have run them into it but for an unlucky order from the Commander in Chief to retire. At Murfreesboro', in command of our left wing, he fought one of the most terrific battles and won as brilliant a victory as there is on record. Unfortunately, the centre and right did not do so well. And now again, in the Chickamauga Valley, he triumphs over the foe and captures seven stand of colors when all the rest of the army is flying in confusion from the field.
