,090 killed, 6,154 wounded: total, 7,244. Longstreet reports his losses from the 23d to the 30th of August, inclusive, at 4,725. A. P. Hill reports the losses in his division, from the 24th to the 31st, at 1,548. Probably the entire Rebel loss from Cedar Mountain to Chantilly did not fall short of 15,000 men; while Pope's, if we include that by stragglers who never rejoined their regiments, must have been fully double that number. Among our killed, beside those already named, were Cols. Fletcher Webster, son of the great Daniel, Roberts, 1st Mich., O'Connor, 2d Wise., Koltes, 73d Pa., commanding a brigade, Cantwell, 82d Ohio, and Brown, 20th Ind. Among our wounded on the 30th, were Maj.-Gen. Robert C. Schenck and Col. Hardin, of the Pa. Reserves. Among the Rebels wounded in these fights, were Brig.-Gens. Field and Trimble, and Cols. Forno and Baylor, commanding brigades. How far Pope's disasters are justly attributable to his own incapacity, and how far to the failure or withho

While in this command it was engaged at Manassas, where its losses amounted to 13 killed, 61 wounded, and 63 missing; Colonel Webster, a son of Daniel Webster, was killed there. The regiment faced a terrible fire at Antietam, losing 49 killed, 165 wounded, and 10 missing, out of 334 present on the field; Major Elisha Burbank was mortally wounded in that battle. At Fred

r unpopular, and she fancies that by holding on she will tire us out, and dollars and cents will conquer us, if not arms. Do not think this idea absurd; it is true. There have been received here Mexican journals, with large quotations from Mr. Webster's Daniel Webster, U. S. senator. speech at Philadelphia, and from the columns of the National Intelligencer, proving the unpopularity of the war. They cite the recent elections to prove that Mr. Polk is not sustained, and they say, Let us hespect Mexico and to withdraw all its exorbitant demands. Now, while I give you this as the tone of public feeling in Mexico, I neither endorse it nor consider it fair; but at the same time I consider the course of the Intelligencer, and of Mr. Webster and others, most injudicious and tending more to continue the war than any other cause. To force Mexico to terms is a most difficult affair, and never to be accomplished, unless we display to her and the world our determination to do it at ev

been none for some time. In the meantime, I have had two young men serving temporarily on my staff. One is a Mr. Mason, belonging to one of the Reserve regiments, and the other Mr. Dehon, of Boston, belonging to the Twelfth Massachusetts (Fletcher Webster's regiment). They are both very clever and active. In regard to Willie, your brother, I will see what can be done. The trouble is, both Seymour and Reynolds have got into a snarl with the Governor about elections, the Governor maintaininleased with him, that after my return to the Division, I retained him, although I hardly had that right, he belonging to another division. His father, who has been a Boston democrat, was very prominent in getting up the Twelfth Regiment for Fletcher Webster. I presume this favor to him, for it was a favor, did much towards impressing him agreeably in regard to me. Now you will say this is my modesty and usual underrating of my exceeding great abilities.

y or to disobey; and that the decision of one suit, fully contested, constitutes a precedent for the future. The concluding ten pages of the address give a graphic, condensed, truthful, and eloquent review of the condition of the country, of the danger and wickedness of a civil war, and of the position which Massachusetts and her great statesmen have always held in regard to them. He said,— Inspired by the same ideas and emotions which commanded the fraternization of Jackson and Webster on another great occasion of public danger, the people of Massachusetts, confiding in the patriotism of their brethren in other States, accept this issue, and respond, in the words of Jackson, The Federal Union: it must be preserved! Until we complete the work of rolling back this wave of rebellion, which threatens to engulf the Government, overthrow democratic institutions, subject the people to the rule of a minority, if not of mere military despotism, and, in some communities, to enda

ad been a source of strength to the Rebellion; and asked, If this be so, why is it not the duty of the Administration to deal with the subject precisely as all the policies of war suggest, and all the necessities of our case demand. Further on, he said, At all events, let Massachusetts, while abiding in her holy and traditional faith, hold herself in harmony with her sister States in constancy and in sacrifice to the last. Colonel Bullock closed his address by an eloquent quotation from Mr. Webster to avoid disunion, and abide by the Constitution. J. Q. A. Griffin, of Charlestown, moved that a committee be appointed to draft the customary resolutions. This motion was opposed by R. H. Dana, Jr., of Cambridge, who said this was not a day for long resolutions. If any were necessary, he hoped they would be short, declaring a hearty support of the State and national Governments for the suppression of the Rebellion; and concluded by offering the following, which some one had handed
