Howe, but a day or two before the battle of Trenton, "I will engage to keep the peace Jersey with a corporal's guard." Again: When Sir Henry Clinton captured Charleston, he made prisoners of the whole American army. The American General, Lincoln, had made the fate of the campaign turn on the possession of that city.--This policy was condemned by Col. Tarleton in his "campaigns, " as the height of folly.--He should, said that officer, have left Charleston to its fate, and retired to the country, whence he could have kept up such a war as Washington waged upon the North river and the Delaware. Unquestionably, that was the true doctrine. Lincoln surrendered nearly six thousand men, very nearly the same number captured at Fort Donelson. But mark the difference. We have nearly half a million in the field; the revolutionists of that day not above the tenth part of the number. They lost a full ninth of their entire force; we less than the ninetieth part of ours. Yet the people
The old Union men. We have often expressed the opinion that the old Union men of Virginia had entitled themselves, from the very moment that Lincoln's proclamation made the path of duty plain to their minds, to the most profound gratitude and admiration of the country.

You know how slow my mind was in coming to the conclusion I have held from the moment of Virginia's secession.--But, sir, (with great solemnity,) it is a righteous cause; it is a righteous cause; Do your almost for that cause. You are a Christian soldier. Trust in God, and (laying his hands on his head, as Jacob of old laid his hands on the head of Joseph,) God will bless you." The stern soldier's face was hatched in team; as were the faces of all present. The words were uttered with the hesitating utterance and solemn aspect of a dying man. Who can doubt his duty when he hears such a man thus speak, one whose life was illustrious for piety, virtue, and wisdom, and who had been all his life long, up to the hour of Lincoln's proclamation, one of the strongest Union men in Virginia.
