Missouri (Missouri, United States) (search for this): article 2
e grand result is, the possession of a half-Yankee fled and exposed portion of Virginia; of a part of Kentucky voluntarily surrendered to them by the treachery of a act of disgraced politicians and timid property holders; and of those regions of Missouri where the "Union" sentiment was strong enough to prevent the military organization of the true Southern people. They have conquered nothing. They hold no part of our soil, except that which our people surrendered into their hands. They have wdeception have accomplished for them what their valor could not. Nay, they have lost ground; for whereas they felt secure of Kentucky, that State, after hard fighting, is sure now to be ours; and whereas they thought they had effectually overrun Missouri, they find the indomitable spirit of that people unconquerable, and that they have suffered their severest reverses in the very State which they thought most surely their own.

overeign States; to take possession of wealthy and luxuriant cities; to apportion vast landed properties among their troops; to set several millions of negroes free and to establish the Federal Government throughout the old Union in such impregnable strength, that nothing could shake it, and none dispute its supremacy, forever more.--They proposed to do all this in a very few months. A man in their midst who had hinted a doubt of its accomplishment in less than four months from the date of Lincoln's call for seventy-three regiments, would have been instantly bastiled in Fort Lafayette. But nothing of all this splendid programme has been accomplished.

arting under repeated defeats, the laughing-stock of the world, and feeling in their hearts their utter inferiority to us in all the qualities of warriors. The worst spent four hundred millions that ever slipped out of a public treasury, have been the millions which the North has paid for eight months of campaigning, which has resulted in nothing but in teaching them that their volunteers are cowards, and cannot be trusted in the field. It reminds us of the vast pains and expense which Xerxes, Darius, and those Eastern commanders of myriads, were at, to learn experimentally the same sad truth of their armies. A nation may have wealth in its exchequer, arms in its arsenals, supplies in unbounded profusion, and it may have troops by the million, and yet, unless those men have the true pluck of warriors, and be capable of fighting bravely in the field, these grand appurtenances of military power are butas sounding brass and a tinkling cymbal. They can effect no more in the field,
