The New York Times has an article on our Generals and their rank. It says: The Major-Generals of the Confederate army are numerous, and Stonewall Jackson, who holds this rank, stands at some distance from the head of the list. Both Longstreet and A. P. Hill are his seniors in rank. If it be true that General Joseph Johnston has recovered from the severe wounds he received at Fair Oaks sufficiently to allow him to take the field, we may fairly understand that the rebel campaign of invasion will be really directed in the supreme resort by his clear, quick, keen, and daring intellect — an intellect as fertile in resources as his will is swift to execute what his judgment has determined. We have no more formidable enemy. The appointment just announced in the Richmond papers of so conspicuous an office
ashington, dated the 7th, says "there is no evidence of any enemy in great force immediately in front of Washington." It adds: A deserter from the 2d Virginia cavalry, Mumford's brigade, captured near Fairfax Court-House states that Gen, Jo. Johnston is to supercede Gen Bragg in Kentucky. He says that he heard rebel officers admit the loss of the rebels at Antistam to be 46,000 killed and wounded, and 4,000 prisoners. According to his statement the rebel army is located thus: Mumford's brigade, of from 900 to 1,000 cavalry, is between. Warrenton and the springs. The force at Culpeper Court House, now commanded by Gen. Jo. Johnston, consists of three divisions; one of the them commanded by Gen. Gus. W. Smith, another by Gen. Horton; the name of the other division commander he did not know. The force under Lee at Winchester, he says, numbers 180,000 men, and is being reinforced, but this is evidently too high an estimate.

Southern authors looked to the Harpers, the Appletons, and others of a like character, to publish their books for them — now they rely upon those enterprising publishers, Messrs. West & Johnston, who are extensively engaged in the publishing business. We have now upon our table a variety of military and other works gotten up in a very superior manner by these gentlemen. The typography will compare favorably with the Harpers, while the read the trashy productions of itinerant Yankees, whose books, as a general thing, are as worthless as their hearts are black; but will in future have Southern books, written by Southern gentlemen, printed on Southern type, and sold by Southern publishing houses. Messrs. West & Johnston deserve the thanks of every citizen of the Southern Confederacy for the enterprising manner in which they have entered into the publishing business, and we command them to the support of all true Southerners.

he public men charged with the responsibility of a military misfortune. The Government, which knows all the facts, must be presumed to have grounds for its action or non-action which, for reasons of public interest, cannot always be made known to the people. When General Sidney Johnston was at Bowling Green, Ky., he was universally denounced for falling back, the critics assuming that he had eighty thousand men, when, as it was afterwards discovered, he had but twenty thousand. When Gen. Jo. Johnston was at Winchester, in the beginning of the war, he was as roundly abused for not fighting the Yankees, and it was not until he swooped down upon them at Manassas that some of his critics believed there was any fight in him. We have suffered a defeat at Chickamauga, and we gained a victory there also; but the victory did not stop the mouths of the croakers, for it was not followed up. Do they know, or can they pretend to know, why it was not followed up? Are they sure that Gen. Bragg h

the wrong that ought to first propose a reconciliation. The man who suffers it cannot take such a step without humiliation. By a parity of reasoning, in all wars, the aggressor ought to make the first advances to peace. The injured nation or people cannot do it without self — abasement. In our case it is certain that nothing but absolute submission would do, and Lincoln has already proclaimed the terms on which he will condescend to receive our submission. These proposals to initiate peace propositions on our side are to the last degree pernicious. they generate a treasonable spirit where it did not exist before, and keep it alive where it did — and that, too, whatever may be the intentions of those with whom they originate. We regret to see the authority of such a name as Gov. Vance's given to proceedings so objectionable. We are for peace, too.
