(See another letter of the same date on the same page as to political prisoners.) This being the condition of things, on May 25th, 1863, the following order was issued by the Federals: war Department, Washington, D. C., May 25, 1863. General Schofield. No Confederate officer will be paroled or exchanged till further orders. They will be kept in close confinement, and be strongly guarded. Those already paroled will be confined. H. W. Halleck, General-in-Chief. And similar orderfferings and mortality occurred. Finally the clamor was so great for a renewal of the cartel that General Grant consented, and from that date exchanges continued to the end of the war, although when a large number of prisoners were sent to General Schofield, at Wilmington, on February 21st, 1865, he refused to receive them. Vol. VIII, p. 286. On the 10th of January, 1864, in view of the large numbers of prisoners then held on both sides, and the sufferings consequently engendered thereby,

ctober, the general-in-chief went to Washington, to ascertain definitely upon what reinforcements he could rely, and to shape his plans accordingly. Meanwhile, as we have seen, when Hood had once crossed the Chattahoochee, Sherman was obliged, however reluctantly, to follow; but still, as corps after corps was sent north in pursuit, his despatches were full of suggestions of counter-moves; he was looking back constantly to the fields that he preferred. Keep your folks ready, he said to Schofield, to send baggage into Atlanta, and to start on short notice. If we make a countermove, I will go out myself with a large force, and take such a route as will supply us, and at the same time make Hood recall the whole or part of his army. Thomas had now arrived in Chattanooga, and on the 30th of September, Sherman said to him: There is no doubt some of Hood's infantry is across the Chattahoochee, but I don't think his whole army is across. If he moves his whole force to Blue Mountain, yo

It was nowas ordered to concentrate at Pulaski, until Schofield, who was moving from Resaca, by way of Nashvo move to Johnsonville, instead of Pulaski. Schofield reached Johnsonville on the night of the 5th at Pulaski until the 14th of November, when Schofield arrived and was placed in command of all thean hardly have been more than 7,000 strong. Schofield and Wilson, however, both estimated it at 10rom Missouri and Wilson remount his cavalry, Schofield's force was therefore inferior to Hood's; buritical moment, both on the right and left.

ridge admitted that slavery was dead, and I could not insist on embracing it in such a paper, because it can be made with the states in detail. I know that all the men of substance South sincerely want peace, and I do not believe they will resort to war again during this century. I have no doubt that they will in future be perfectly subordinate to the laws of the United States. The moment my action in this matter is approved, I can spare five corps, and will ask for orders to leave General Schofield here with the Tenth corps, and to march myself with the Fourteenth, Fifteenth, Seventeenth, Twentieth, and Twenty-third corps via Burkesville and Gordonsville to Frederick or Hagerstown, Maryland, there to be paid and mustered out. The question of finance is now the chief one, and every soldier and officer not needed should be got home at work. I would like to be able to begin the march north by May 1st. I urge, on the part of the President, speedy action, as it is important to

ri--his private letter published and the Publisher arrested. William McKee, the senior proprietor of the St. Louis Democrat, has been put under arrest by General Schofield. The grounds for the arrest are stated to be the publication of the letter of President Lincoln to General Schofield, explaining the reasons for the removalGeneral Schofield, explaining the reasons for the removal of General Curtis, and for refusing to state in what manner such letter came into his hands. The following is the letter: Executive Mansion, Washington, May 27, 1863. Gen. J. M. Schofield: Dear Sir: Having removed General Curtis and assigned you to the command of the Department of Missouri, I think it may be of some Gen. J. M. Schofield: Dear Sir: Having removed General Curtis and assigned you to the command of the Department of Missouri, I think it may be of some advantage for me to state to you why I did it. I did not relieve General Curtis because of my full conviction that he had done wrong, by commission or omission. I did it because of a conviction in my mind that the Union men of Missouri, constituting, when united, a vast majority of the whole people, have entered into a pestilent
