ician can be taken from the clubs, and a lawyer from the court-rooms, and safely entrusted with the leadership of an army. We are no advocates of red tape. We think that regular officers, who are mere regulars, and do not appreciate the peculiar genius and temper of volunteer troops, are as likely to do injury by their want of perception and flexibility, as the uneducated in war by their ignorance and rashness. Nor would we deny that men are sometimes born Generals, and that Napoleon would have been Napoleon if he had never seen the inside of a military school. We have doubtless in the Confederacy some such men, and when they demonstrate their ability by a series of successful actions, which cannot be attributed to accident, every facility should be given to their promotion. Some Washington or Jackson may still be among us, whom the times will call forth, and who will yet help to "raise their bleeding country from the dust," and visit righteous retribution upon her enemies.

Jackson, of Missouri. It furnishes a sufficient answer to the Federal accounts, and affords additional evidence of the mendacity of the Federal Generals: A bout the latter part of December, I left my camp on Sac river, St. Clair county, fell back, and took up my quarters at Springfield for the purpose of being within reach of supplies, protecting that portion of the State from home guard depredations and Federal invasion, as well as to secure a most valuable point for military movement At Springfield, I received from Grand Glaze considerable supplies of clothing, camp and garrison equipage, and having built huts, our soldiers were as comfortable as circumstances would permit. I am pleased to say few complaints were either made or heard, Missouri having been admitted as an equal member of th

Matters in the Valley, so far as our information extends, remain in stern two. The Federals still occupy the lower portion of it, which Gen.
