Gen. Rosecrans.

We have never seen, even among Yankees, a popular idol so suddenly displaced from his shrine and bedaubed with such abominable fifth as the hapless Rosecrans. They now assert that their late demigod is an intolerable coward; that he rushed from the field of battle to Chattanooga and declared that all was lost. He is even said to have betaken himself to opium to soothe the anguish of his terror, defeat, and misery.--Alas! unhappy Rosecrans! Once a gentleman, he converted himself into a brutal tyrant and blackguard to propitiate the Lincoln dynasty, and has already received the just reward of his self-degradation.
