It will beoses; and we now have Capt. Ewing's assurance that the account, so far as it reflected upon Gen. Crittenden, is a sheer fabrication of the writer. His testimony, as well as that of other officers wiould be improbable even in the absence of his own denial, but justice to him, as well as to Gen.
