hich the soldiers of all of our armies are alike interested, and we have published a number of reports, Recollections, &c., of the Southern, Western, and Southwestern armies. For the past six months we have devoted a large part of our space to Gettysburg; but we are ready to illustrate as fully the great battles of the West if our friends who fought them so gallantly will only furnish us the material. The truth is that our Society was originally started in New Orleans by officers of the Westomrades of the West-and that while we hail the Annals as a valuable co-worker and helper, we shall still claim the privilege of asking our friends in the West to help us to put them right on the record. A letter from General Fitz. Lee, on Gettysburg, will appear in our next number, and will contain some things about the great battle never before published. We have on hand and waiting for publication, a number of valuable articles. Our friends will please bear with us, and their paper

Accordine 300, while, on the other hand, we must deduct from the 22,728, about 700 men lost between the 3d and the 18th of July; therefore the whole Confederate loss at Gettysburg must have been about 22,300 or 22,400. The official figures are for the Federals: Killed, 2,834; wounded, 13,709; missing, 6,643. Total, 23,186. For the

xecuting his own plans, but we must give him credit for ability to handle the great armies he forced his government to give him with more facility than any of his predecessors of the Army of the Potomac, McClellan excepted. When Grant took command of that army it had been successively commanded by McDowell, McClellan, Burnside, Pope, Hooker, and Meade. The Army of Northern Virginia had struck the Army of the Potomac under all these generals seriatim, and always, except at Antietam and at Gettysburg, the Army of the Potomac had been utterly defeated, and could only be marched away from the presence of its victorious enemy to be reinforced, refitted, and brought back again after repose and reinforcement to attempt anew the on to Richmond under another experimental general. Antietam was a drawn battle. It made Lee abandon his first campaign beyond the Potomac, and saved the Federal capital and cause. But McClellan was too high-bred, too broad in his philanthrophy, too honest a gent

Now, it so happened that the basis of my estimate of the strength of General Lee's army at Gettysburg was the monthly report of the 31st May, 1863, and not a field return. I, therefore, took the total amount of the column all arms, 74,451. And carrying out the same reasoning as that originally pursued, I would say that General Lee had at Gettysburg, including all the cavalry, 67,000 men — that is to say, 53,500 infantry, 9,000 cavalry, and 4,500 artillery. Of couoriginally given by me as the strength of General Lee's army — that is say, 67,452 on the 31st May, 1873, and 62,000 at Gettysburg — should be employed in the comparison, as they represent also his enlisted men present for duty.

It is, in my jof 6,000 for straggling, and he estimates the effective strength of the Army of the Potomac at Gettysburg at 85,000 of all arms. In regard to the strength of the Army of Northern Virginia, as given that I have, and after a careful study of the subject, I think that General Lee's strength at Gettysburg, embracing his entire effective force of all arms of the service, from first to last, was, in Humphreys, U. S. A., rather confirms my estimate of the strength of the Army of the Potomac at Gettysburg. According to his statement, the return of that army on the 30th June, 1863, showed present fnts, numbering five hundred each, that joined it subsequently, there results as the strength of that army at Gettysburg 102,975-say 103,000-differing very little indeed from my estimate. -W.
