and intrigue behind his back, and the terrible enemy before him-had saved his army, than the Government responded to it. Large numbers of men were sent from Harrison's Landing to Acquia Creek; the Federal forces at Warrentown, Alexandria and Fredericksburg were mobilized and strengthened; and the baton of command was wrenched from the hand of McClellan to be placed in that of Major-General John Pope! The history of this new popular hero, to this time, may be summed up by saying that he had t of the gallant son of Maryland winged its flight, ere the shouts of victory could cheer it on its way! The Washington government at once ordered the remains of Mc- Clellan's army to General Pope; and massing with them Burnside's army at Fredericksburg and the vicinity, strained every nerve to aid his successful advance. But here we may digress for the moment, to take a bird's-eye view of matters of grave moment passing in distant quarters of the Confederacy. While victory had perch
the southern masses never dreamed the day would come when that proclamation would be more than the paper upon which it was engrossed. Still, in the general gloom upon them, it was taken as but another augury of the bitter spirit animating their enemies; and of the extent to which it would drive them in this war for the Union and flag. And so the close of 1862 fell dark and dismal upon the distracted country; enlivened only by the sole gleam in Virginia — the repulse of Burnside from Fredericksburg. But even the joy for this triumph was dashed by the precious blood spilled to purchase it; another vent for that steady drain of men, material and endurance-already almost past bearing. But there was no weak yielding in Government, or in people. Men looked at each other through the gloom, and even as they asked --Brother, what of the night? --struck hands in a clasp that meant renewed faith in the cause and renewed determination to prove its right. Early in the New Year, news

Just back of Fredericksburg, stretching some two miles southward, is ao active operations immediately succeeding Fredericksburg. Picket fighting; cavalry skirmishes, sevlook upon the ugliest features of the war. Fredericksburg was a ruin, riddled with shot and shell, tcolumns, one menacing right crossing below Fredericksburg, to hold the troops at that point; the oth Chancellorsville road, eleven miles above Fredericksburg. Grasping the situation at once, Lee ordeedgwick, however, had crossed the river at Fredericksburg, driving the Confederates from the town an

With these unlimited resources, he was given almost unlimited power; and the jubilant North crowed as loudly as it had before Manassas, the Seven Days, or Fredericksburg. In Richmond all was quiet. The Government had done all it could, and the people had responded with a generous unanimity that ignored all points of variance between it and them. All the supplies that could be collected and forwarded, undan, he could have had no other intention than to sweep Lee from his front; and either by a crushing victory, or a forced retreat, drive him toward Richmond. Failing signally at the Wilderness, he abandoned this original plan and took up the Fredericksburg line. Here again the disastrous days of Spottsylvania foiled him completely; and he struck for the Tappahannock and Fort Royal line. Lee's emphatic repulse of his movement on the North Anna again sent Grant across the Pamunkey; and into the
