life would have been spared. And we believe, moreover, that the North would have been right, as we believe that the South would have been, if a had pursued such a course. We are quite sure that the forbearance of the South has had no other effect than to exasperate and embolden a cowardly and cruel foe to fresh acts of barbarity and oppression. Our prisoners put in irons and threatened with death; peaceable citizens arrested and sent to Fort Lafayette; the proclamation of martial law in Missouri, where every man who takes up arms for his freedom is menaced with instant death; the preparations to bombard and lay in ashes the city of Baltimore upon the approach of a Confederate force; these, and a thousand like instances of unexampled barbarity, show that the mild and merciful course of the Southern Government has been imputed to fear by men who themselves never abstain from evil except under the same principle.

Their volunteer officers especially are, in general, perfect caricatures of officers, knowing nothing of the art of war, and many of them ignorant of the decencies of civilization. The original vocations of some of them were about the last from which anybody but Yankee Doodle would ever have thought of manufacturing officers. In short, few of the volunteer officers now in limbo were recognized at home as gentlemen, and cannot be expected to succeed in a character which they have never even attempted.
