Doc. 87.-occupation of Winchester, Va. New-York times account. the army of the advance--Gen. Banes' division, Friday, March 14, 1862. En avant. With plans fully matured, the vast army of the Union, numbering over five hundred and ninety-five thousand men, equipped in every respect, and each man filled with the enthusiasm that belongs to a just and holy cause — that of a good Government — advance now from every point, not like the anaconda, as some are fond of comparing the force to, but rather like the lordly eagle, at one swoop, falling on every point, and triumphing everywhere. Here at Winchester, we conquer to restore, and most joyously have we been received by the people. On our entrance, the old flag, which in many a house had been hidden for many a weary month of delay, waved from balcony and house-top; ladies applauded, too, and under a perfect canopy of white banners, we enter the old town. Our joy was saddened with the thought that the night before over two hu

Doc. 94.-address of General McClellan to the army of the Potomac. headquarters army of the Potomac, Fairfax Court-House, Va., March 14, 1862. Soldiers of the Army of the Potomac: For a long time I have kept you inactive, but not without a purpose. You were to be disciplined, armed, and instructed; the formidable artillery you now have had to be created; other armies were to move and accomplish certain results. I have held you back that you might give the death-blow to the rebellion that has distracted our once happy country. The patience you have shown, and your confidence in your General, are worth a dozen victories. These preliminary results are now accomplished. I feel that the patient labors of many months have produced their fruit; the Army of the Potomac is now a real army — magnificent in material, admirable in discipline and instruction, excellently equipped and armed — your commanders are all that I could wish. The moment for action has arrived, and I know tha

The landing commenced by seven o'clock the next morning, under cover of the naval fleet, and was effected with the greatest enthusiasm by the troops.

Beauregard's order before the battle. headquarters army of the Mississippi, Jackson, Tenn., March 14, 1862. 1. Field and company officers are specially enjoined to instruct their men, under all circumstances, to fire with deliberation at the feet of the enemy. They will thus avoid over-shooting, and besides, wounded men give more trouble to our adversary than dead, as they have to be taken from the field. 2. Officers in command must be cool and collected; hold their men in hand in action, and caution them against useless, aimless firing. The men must be instructed and required each on
