A good work.

--General Bragg, in his visit to the Southwest, took one step which will ever deserve the praise of all. We allude to the fact that he inaugurated the policy of sending to the front the thousands of detailed men, post officials, contractors, purchasing agents, and other parties who have long been filling easy, safe and remunerative positions.--The number of these was a legion, and thousands of them have been driven from their bomb-proofs and sent to the front. In the emergency, the step was a praiseworthy one, and for taking it, General Bragg deserves, and will receive, the thanks of the army and the people.--Augusta (Georgia) Sentinel.
