I have accepted, and am making arrangements. "J. B. Hood, General." Prisoners report that thirty thousand of Sherman's troops will be mustered out of service this month, and that the term of many of them expired before the fall of Atlanta, but they were induced to remain until after that event.

Whether it can be called a success at all is problematical, and remains to be determined by future events. There is food for reflection to the Northern people in these things. They are promised now, as they have been promised all along, a speedy termination of the war. What reason have they to put confidence in such promise
