The enemy have organized in every army a corps of sharpshooters, whose exclusive business it is to shoot our officers. It is believed that Gen. Johnston and our Generals at the late battle in Missouri fell in this way. We should have a similar corps attached to our own army, to shoot the Lincoln Generals whenever they are within the longest range of a musket. Our own Generals, at the same time, should imitate the caution of the Lincoln Generals, and keep out of the way of sharpshooters as much as possible.
