Sketches of operations in the West and Southwest are solicited at this office. We have written to a large number of officers who served in the armies of the West to send us such material, and are very anxious to secure full discussions of the campaigns and battles of the gallant soldiers of those armies.

To several letters asking why we do not publish more Western material, we have returned the ready reply : Because our brethren of that section have not sent it to us. We have the official reports of battles published by the Confederate Congress; but as a rule we must confine our publications to original matter, and we again beg our friends in the West to send it to us. Let those who made the history tell it. We expect to publish in our next issue General Breckinridge's report of the battle of Chickamauga.
