Table of Contents:
Julius C would be a baby in the hands of Gen. Pope. The man is simply a compound of vulgar self-conceit, impudence and brutality, and will be exploded in due time like all the other military humbugs that have preceded him. The tyranny he threatens to practice upon peaceful citizens will inflame instead of intimidate. The cruelties he proposes to visit upon our guerrillas will be visited upon his own men, and upon himself, if his horse's legs do not run as fast as his garrulous tongue. Whenever one of these Federal Generals, who inaugurates the kind of warfare threatened by Pope in his proclamation, falls into our hands, he ought to be hung to the first free. ‘"A short shrift and a long rope"’ for all such enemies of humanity!
