l at Corinth, March 24th, General Johnston held a conference with Generals Beauregard, Polk, and Bragg, after which General Beauregard went back to Jackson; but returned on the 26th, and lent zealous For the important work of reorganization before him, General Johnston called to his aid General Bragg, who had special qualifications for the task. At General Johnston's earnest request, GeneraGeneral Bragg consented to act temporarily as chief of staff, with the understanding that he was to have command of his corps on the approach of a battle. General Bragg played so conspicuous a part in General Bragg played so conspicuous a part in the civil war that this work affords neither scope nor occasion for an account of his life, or an estimate of his character. Indeed, there is scarcely any other career that has come under the writer's personal view where there were so many questions difficult to settle fairly. In Bragg there was so much that was strong marred by most evident weaknesses, so many virtues blemished by excess or d

ctor could know about deserters, stragglers, prisoners, etc. I am extremely disappointed. I cannot positively state the reduction of his Army from Dalton to Atlanta, but I believe it was about nineteen thousand (19,000) muskets. * * * * As to the deficiency of ammunition, it is a romance. I left full supplies on hand at the time General Hood took command. * * * Very respectfully, your obedient servant, H. Oladowski. The above is in answer to a letter written at my request by General Bragg. It is impossible that we should have lost twenty-five thousand (25,000) men from Dalton to Atlanta, and,at the same time, no material save four field pieces. After the muskets of the killed and wounded were gathered and turned into the Ordnance Department, nineteen thousand (19,000) is about the proportion that might be expected to have been lost through stragglers, deserters, and prisoners, during such a campaign. Colonel Oladowski will be remembered by many soldiers of the Army o

ency the President, Richmond: I have received your dispatch of yesterday. Our falling back has been slow. Every change of position has been reported to General Bragg. We have been forced back by the operations of a siege, which the enemy's extreme caution and greatly superior numbers have made it impossible for me to prevent. I have found no opportunity for battle, except by attacking intrenchments. J. E. Johnston. Near Atlanta, July 11, 1864.

ortugas in Florida were about the only forts within the seceded States which remained in the possession of the general government. How soon the work of organizing and instructing troops began in the South will appear from the fact that as early as the 9th of Jan., 1861, an expedition for the relief of Fort Sumter was turned back by the fire of the Southern batteries near the entrance of Charleston harbor. About the same time the navy-yard at Pensacola was occupied by an armed force under Bragg, and the works at the mouth of the Mississippi garrisoned. In brief, at least from the beginning of Jan., 1861, and probably in many cases yet earlier, the work of organizing, arming, and instructing troops began throughout the seceded States, and not improbably in such of the slaveholding States also as had not yet formally joined the movement of secession. As early as Feb. 18, Gen. Twiggs surrendered the forces under his command in Texas. Meanwhile neither the general government nor
nd Burnside as safe until you reinforce them. Moreover, I wish them to be under your immediate command, for reasons which it is not necessary to specify. As things now are, with separate commands, there will be no concert of action, and we daily risk being attacked and defeated in detail. I would write you more fully, but nearly all my time is occupied with the new drafts and enlistments. They are doing well, but several weeks must elapse before we can get the troops into the field. Bragg seems to be concentrating a large force against Buell, and the latter is asking for reinforcements. When he will reach Chattanooga is a problem I am unable to solve. Note by the Editor.-In his private diary, Aug. 15 (Warden, p. 452), Mr. Secretary Chase writes: Went to War Department. Stanton said Halleck had sent Burnside to James river to act as second in command, or as adviser of McClellan — in reality to control him. Writing Sept. 2, Mr. Chase (Schuckers, p. 448) says that he saw
