f the investment of Bexar having subsided. I think it probable I shall have to advance with one company of forty men, or relinquish the undertaking, which I would not do were all the powers of Mexico in full array on our territory. [6Confidential.-Our Government wants energy and prudent foresight, which those intrusted with the liberties of a people should possess.] I leave to-morrow for the Navidad, thence for Bexar, thence — I will determine when I get there. Salutations to all friends, Prentice in particular. Very truly your friend, A. Sidney Jonston. The sentence marked s Confidential, in this letter, will not be considered incautious, or censorious, when it is remembered that it was addressed to a most intimate and trustworthy friend, not in Texas. It is given to show the drift of General Johnston's opinions at that time. A little later, if he had chosen to give expression to them, they would have been more emphatic in tone. On the 20th of January the Secretary of
Guthrie and Crittenden, entreating time for compromise, the trimmers and waverers got possession of the government and of the public confidence. It seemed so much better to trust those who promised peace than men who called for armament, expenditure, and action! One of the most potent agencies in lulling the spirit of resistance, until Kentucky found itself bound hand and foot, was the Louisville Journal, which for thirty years had struck the key-note of the Whig party. Its editor, George D. Prentice, a New-Englander by birth, was a pungent wit, a poet, a man of careless and convivial habits, an effective editor, and a politician who had grown gray in the service of his party. He displayed great tact in marshaling the ranks of the Unionists, and contributed more to their success than any other man in Kentucky. The--Louisville Courier was the advocate of the State-rights party. Its publisher, Walter N. Haldeman, was proscribed, plundered, and exiled. By a curious turn of fortune

explosion of one of them near him. We all remounted as quickly as possible, each obeying the injunction, Stand not upon the order of your going, but go at once, and were soon out of range of the battery, when the firing ceased. The Confederates had doubtless heard of the return of Butler from Fort Fisher, and, mistaking our little party of five for the General and his staff, gave this Salute with shotted guns. We returned to General Butler's Headquarters at twilight, where we found George D. Prentice, editor of the Louisville Journal, who had just come through the lines from Richmond. With him and Captain Clarke, of Butler's staff, we journeyed the next day on horseback to Aiken's Landing, crossed the James on a pontoon bridge, rode to Bermuda Hundred, and then went up the Appomattox to Point of Rocks in the Ocean Queen, which the general placed at our disposal. There we mounted to the summit of the signal-tower delineated on page 547, and viewed the marvelous lines of intrenchme

29. the New year and the Union. by George D. Prentice. God has made A wilderness of worlds; His will, and strong Creative spirit shook ten thousand worlds, Like golden dewdrops, from his waving wing, To roll in beauty through abysmal space, And chant the chorus of his love divine. He made the milky-way to span the sky, A pearly bow of promise, every drop That sparkles there a singing, shining world! He woke the music of the Northern Harp, The wild weird chiming of the Pleiades-- And bade the arches of a Southern sphere Reverberate their hallelujahs high. The mighty One Who sweeps the lyre of Ages, and commands The praises of ten thousand singing worlds, Creates the stars of Union, and attunes The lofty heart of liberty! . . . shall we, Proud children of the brave, the free, Behold our banner, blazoned by the breath Of glory, sullied by a slave?--our stars, Of Union tossing wildly to and fro Upon the wave of faction, as they were But shining shadows, not eternal orbs, For ever cir
The following correspondence from the Louisville Journal explains itself:-- University of Virginia, May 17, 1861. Prentice: Stop my paper; I can't afford to read abbolition journals these times; the atmosphere of Old Virginia will not at all admit of such filthy sheets as yours has grown to be. Yours, &c., George Lake. To Editors of Louisville Journal. Lake! I think it a great pity that a young man should go to a university to graduate a traitor and a blackguard — and so ignorant as to spell abolition with two b's. G. D. P. --Vincennes (Ind.) Gazette, May 25.

soon sounded, and the enemy retired from our town in good order, though in haste. The fighting was desperate, and although our loss is small, yet gallant and brave men have gone from us forever. Our killed and wounded amount to twelve or fifteen, while that of the enemy number between seventy-five and one hundred--among them some eight or ten officers. We had no means of ascertaining the names of all the rebels killed and wounded; but among the number wounded mortally is a son of George D. Prentice, of Louisville. Captain W. Rogers, of Harrison County, was killed, and a Lieutenant Wilson. The rebels left some of their killed and wounded in our hands, all of whom have been properly cared for. They took our horses, buggies, wagons, and all means of transportation to carry off their dead and wounded. Among the killed on the Union side was Dr. W. Taylor, M. B. Worthington, John B. Story, George Byers, Oliver Stairs, John Eiphart, John Perkins, and William Gregg. The prisoners

the Union and stirred the guilty sections to quick and savage outbursts of temper against him and the bitter truths which he preached. Almost directly the proofs came to him that he was heard at the South and at the North alike. Angry growls reached his ears in the first month of the publication of the Liberator from some heartless New England editors in denunciation of his violent and intemperate attacks on slaveholders. The Journal, published at Louisville, Kentucky, and edited by George D. Prentice, declared that, some of his opinions with regard to slavery in the United States are no better than lunacy. The American Spectator published at the seat of the National Government, had hoped that the good sense of the late talented and persecuted junior editor of the Genius, would erelong withdraw him even from the side of the Abolitionists. And from farther South the growl which the reformer heard was unmistakably ferocious. It was from the State of South Carolina and the Camden Jo
