s and directs those officers. We boast of the skill, courage, and superior ability and efficiency of our officers over those of the North. The North admits and deplores the fact, and all Europe reechoes the opinion. We point to Little Bethel, Bull Run, Springfield, and a hundred lesser battles or skirmishes, to show that this universal estimate of the superiority of our officers and our army is abundantly sustained by facts. We compare the Confederate Administration with that of the Unio very recent proof and example of the correctness of our suggestions in the conduct of the Federals. Scott, Lincoln, and Seward knew that their troops were not sufficiently disciplined for an invasive movement, and were opposed to the attack at Bull Run and Manassas, but yielded their opposition to the abuse of the Northern press and the clamors of the mob. It was a weak and inexcusable procedure on their parts; but all men seek the approbation of their fellow men, and are more or less influenc
almost rent by the ravages of a foe we cannot conquer. Many who have periled their lives in the thickest of the fight, and escaped one death, have fallen by the unseen shaft of disease. We were called to witness just such a scene on Friday last, in the death of Lieut. Wm. L. Goggin, Jr. A young man of noble daring, brave and chivalrous, the pride of his parents, and the favorite of the Lynchburg community, was suddenly snatched from them by this unseen power. He was at the engagement at Bull Run on the 18th, and also at Manassas on the 21st, in both of which he gallantly led on his comrades, and, though death was all around and about him, and men falling by scores, yet he escaped unhurt. Immediately after, he had an attack of typhoid fever, which ended his life. He died in the bosom of his family; but no human art can give the father back his son, the mother her darling boy, the brother his dearest associate; or the sister her protector.

so poor as do him reverence. We never hear of him now. "Oh, no; they never mention him; they never breathe his name." Where is old Scott?--We fear that Lincoln has made way with the dear old man. We insist that a habeas corpus shall be procured by hook or crook, if in all Lincoln's dominions such an article can be obtained, and the body of "the great Captain of the age" produced. If the North is unable to furnish a habeas corpus, we have no doubt that Jeff. Davis, merciful to a fallen foe, will lend a Southern writ for the purpose, and even provide the officer who will attend to its execution. Nothing short of that will establish the fact that the great Captain still lives. At present we hear of nobody but McClellan, who, in a military point of view, is a greater humbug than the Lieutenant-General. It is said that the best time at Bull Run was surpassed by McClellan's reindeer in the late foot race at Lewinsville, where McClellan himself was present as one of the chief backers.
