heir country in her ranks, independent of any personal spite of her governor, who had the good quality of cultivating malignity as a parlor plant, I started a recruiting camp at Pittsfield in the western part of the State. It was under Lieutenant-Colonel Whelden, a good Democrat, and in a remarkably short time he put the camp into the finest possible order.

Whelden, Commanding Western Bay Regiment: Colonel:--I have been much gratified with the appearance, discipline, and proficiency of your regiment, as evidenced by the inspection of to-day.
