The Daily Dispatch: November 30, 1861., [Electronic resource], Mr. Russell's letters to the London times. (search)
tterson, in response to a toast and three cheers, made a forcible speech, explaining his reasons for not intercepting Gen. Johnston, previous to the battle of Manassas Junction: The gentlemen of the Troop were witnesses of what was done, and hechments at Winchester, and on the 17th marched to Charlestown. On the 13th he telegraphed the General-in-Chief that Johnston was in position to have his strong h doubled just as he could reach him, and that he would rather lose the chance of accnemy beyond Fairfax Court-House. To morrow the Junction will probably be carried." With this information he was happy. Johnston had been detained the appointed time, and the work of General Patterson's column had been done. On the 18th, at hald have been there on the day that the battle was fought, and his assistance might have produced a different result. On the 20th he heard that Johnston had marched with $5,000 Confederate troops, and a large or iller force, in a southeasterly

t of its writer, who trumpets his own good deeds to the world, but we cannot for one moment allow the supposition that other Chaplains are wanting in patriotism because they desire, in return for their services a sufficient pay to support their necessary camp expenses and their families at home. If the amount of pay that those receive who have left home and all that is dear to them, to defend our beloved country, is to be the criterion of one's patriotism, then our brave and able Generals, Johnston, Beauregard, Lee, and Cooper, are the least patriotic of our heroic band of soldiers. We trust that such twaddle will not deceive many sensible men. Men, in every department of life, whose services are worth having are worth well paying for. Fifty dollars per month, we grant, is amply sufficient for young, unmarried man. But must all of our Chaplains be of that class?
