The Louisville Journal gives the following judgment up against the flood of abuse poured out upon him:

Burnside looks and acts like a great man; and the manner in which he has managed the affairs of this department shows him to be a statesman as well as a General. The more we see of Burnside the more we like him. He has done much for Kentucky. His Order No. 38 has worked like a charm, and has given peace, quiet, and security to many portions of the State which have been invested by rebel sympathizers and marauders. Previous to its publication, many parts of the State were invested by Morgan's men and other rebels, whose presence brought fear and terror, but since the enforcement there are none to be found within our lines, except a few desperate characters, who come and go secretly, to act the spy-and those are caught whenever found and executed.
