ble defence? Who executed it? What troops were there, and under what officers did they fight? These are questions as to which complete silence is preserved; and from what follows the reader is led to believe that the Commanding General was General Hardee, and that Fort Sumter was never under any officer except Colonel Stephen D. Elliott. We quote: When the city was about to be abandoned to the army of General Sherman the forts defending the harbor were embraced in General Hardee's plan oGeneral Hardee's plan of evacuation. The gallant commander of Fort Sumter, Colonel Stephen Elliott, Jr., with unyielding fortitude refused to be relieved, after being under incessant bombardment, day and night, for weeks. It was supposed he must be exhausted, and he was invited to withdraw for rest; but, on receiving the general order of retreat, he assembled his brave force on the rugged and shellcrushed parade-ground, read his instructions, and, in a voice that trembled with emotion, addressed his men in the glowi
operations. But I believe I am warranted in assuming that we have under arms 210,000 effective men, distributed nearly as follows: In the Trans-Mississippi Department, say40,000 In the Department of Alabama and Mississippi, say15,000 Under Hardee, including Longstreet, say60,000 In the Department of South Carolina, Georgia, and Florida, say28,000 In the Department of North Carolina, say7,000 In the Department of Virginia, say60,000 ——— Total210,000 Looking at a map of the Confedemy at or about Dalton, namely: From Alabama and Mississippi10,000 From South Carolina, Georgia, and Florida8,000 From North Carolina2,000 From Virginia20,000 ——— Total40,000 These 40,000 men, added with celerity to the force now under Hardee, and including that with Longstreet and other detachments, would make an army of 100,000 men. Let this army take the offensive at once, and, properly handled, it should crush any force that Grant could assemble in time and oppose, scattered
modest manner in which he performed his duties, no matter under what circumstances, had endeared him to the scarred veterans—officers and men—among whom he had served. His favorite and characteristic motto—one he constantly used, and to which he was faithful to the last-was: The path of duty, the safest of all. The President, without directly assenting to General Beauregard's suggestions as to the Department of South Carolina, Georgia, and Florida, adopted most of them; and Lieutenant-General W. J. Hardee was accordingly assigned to that command, vice Major-General Sam. Jones, who took charge of the Military District of South Carolina; while Major-General Howell Cobb was placed over the Military District of Georgia. Florida had also been put under the command of a major-general (J. Patton Anderson), immediately after the battle of Olustee, or Ocean Pond. Having gone over and concluded these different matters with General Beauregard, the President entered into an interesting an<
r as needed, towards Meridian. While at Corinth alarming telegrams from Generals Hardee, Taylor, Cobb, and Wheeler were received by him relative to Sherman's adva and Taylor. The latter had been ordered to Macon, to assist Generals Cobb and Hardee in the defence of Georgia. He was an officer of acknowledged merit, though notr, and could be relied upon whenever judgment and firmness were requisite. General Hardee, who appreciated these qualities in General Taylor, had urgently solicited him at once, and soon afterwards forwarded some important communications to General Hardee concerning Sherman's movements, and what could best be done to anticipate tr to Lieutenant-General R. Taylor, and letters of November 27th and 29th to General Hardee. At last, on the 21st of November, General Hood, being ready to march, held with him a long conference in relation to the condition of affairs in General Hardee's Department. General Bragg promised heartily to co-operate with him, but

as had been originally decided—for it was then too late to do so—but at another point on the Charlotte Railroad, namely, Chesterville, S. C. Most of the day which General Beauregard spent in Charleston on that occasion was devoted to the preparations for the movement of the troops, embodied in the following document, which he left with General Hardee for his guidance: Headquarters, Military division of the West, Charleston, Feb. 14th, 1865. Memoranda of Orders for Lieutenant-General W. J. Hardee. 1st. One brigade of Wright's division in St. Paul's will move by railroad to Monk's Corner, and thence march into position (at or about Snowden's), from Sandy Run to Santee River. 2d.

C., forwarded this telegr, frankly—and, we think, properly—censured General Hardee's failure to follow his instructions. He y with him could only form a junction with General Hardee, at or near Fayetteville, on the 10th of Mayed lack of vigor in their resistance. General Hardee now retired towards Averysboroa, leaving aportion of his forces at Smithfield, while General Hardee was on his way from Fayetteville to Raleigneral Slocum and by Kilpatrick's cavalry. General Hardee had posted his force in two lines. On theommand fell back to the second line, which General Hardee held, driving back the enemy.

ce occurred from the 14th to the day of the meeting of Generals Johnston and Sherman. The greater part of the Confederate forces, then temporarily under Lieutenant-General Hardee, was marching towards Greensboroa, where General Johnston's headquarters had been established. The army proper was within a few miles of that place on tth Carolina the damage they would sustain by the march of this army through the central or western parts of the State. In accordance with this arrangement General Hardee was ordered to halt his command wherever it might be, and to draw his supplies from Greensboroa. The same order to halt was extended to the other commands. The officers to whom it was sent—General Hardee especially—were much concerned as to its meaning, and thought its effect would be detrimental to the troops, if it were not quickly explained. To their inquiries and remarks General Beauregard's answer was, that he could not, just then, inform them of General Johnston's purpose; tha
