cavalry, made a spirited assault upon the Federal corps of Dodge and Logan in an intrenched position, and were of course repth of Bald hill, his left refused along the McDonough road; Dodge's corps next north, across the railroad, and Logan's corps advancing skirmishers and working parties. One brigade of Dodge's corps had been sent to his rear, and in the morning Sweeny's division of Dodge's corps had moved from the north of the railroad toward his rear, for the purpose of relieving him on Bas speedily filled in part by reinforcements from Logan and Dodge. Hardee's troops gained the rear and flank of McPherson red Sweeny's division and a brigade of Fuller's division of Dodge's corps, faced directly to meet them. Fuller not only delihe West Point and Macon roads enter the city. On the 27th, Dodge, skirmishing briskly, took a line below Proctor's creek, faforced at critical moments by four regiments from Blair and Dodge. Other reinforcements by Palmer were held in check by Jack

report to Sherman. Delays were occasioned by the destruction of bridges across the Elk river, and long detours were made; for there was not time either to ferry, or to build new bridges; and, on the 5th, Grant again dispatched to Sherman: Leave Dodge's command (of Hurlbut's corps) at Athens, until further orders, and come with the remainder of your command to Stevenson, or until you receive other instructions. Again, on the 7th: The enemy have moved a great part of their force from this frone. There are more cars now on the West Tennessee roads than are required. But all this was not sufficient, and, on the 4th, Grant declared: The road from Nashville to Decatur will have to be put in running order. Sherman was ordered to leave Dodge's division, of Hurlbut's command, at Athens. have given directions for putting the railroad from Nashville to Decatur in running order. That road is now only guarded to Columbia, and the force left by you will have to guard the balance, with th
, this winter. The force which Sherman had brought from Vicksburg, was now distributed, under Logan, between Stevenson and Decatur, guarding the railroad, while Dodge's division, of Hurlbut's command, was posted west of Decatur and along the line of the Nashville and Decatur road. Sherman in person started for his new campaign.r was sent to Sherman, with the remark: The letter contains all the instructions I deem necessary in your present move. . . . Nearly all the troops in Thomas's and Dodge's command, having less than one year to serve, have reenlisted, and many of them have been furloughed. This, with the fact that Longstreet's force in East Tennessnecessary for me to keep ready a force to meet them, will prevent my doing much more than is indicated in my letter to General Halleck. I will have, however, both Dodge and Logan ready, so that, if the enemy should weaken himself much in front, they can advance. On the 19th, Thomas also was informed of Sherman's contemplated mo
rangers and loose, independent companies of cavalry that have been operating in this department. He is now occupying the line of the Tallahatchie. This portends preparations to attack Rosecrans, and to be able to follow up any success with rapidity. Also, to made a simultaneous raid into West Tennessee both from north Mississippi and by crossing the Tennessee river. To counteract this, Admiral Porter has consented to send the marine brigade up the Tennessee river, to cooperate with General Dodge at Corinth. I have also ordered an additional regiment of cavalry from Helena to West Tennessee. I enclose with this a letter from Major-General Hurlbut, giving a programme which he wishes to carry out; and so much of it as to drive the enemy from the Tallahatchie, and cutting the roads where they have been repaired, I think can be successfully executed. I will instruct him not to scatter his forces so as to risk losing them. I have placed one division of troops on Deer creek, wi
command of the army instead of Grant, but Sherman instantly telegraphed to his brother in the Senate to oppose the confirmation. The same day he wrote a second letter to the President, which he forwarded through Grant. To Grant himself he said: I never felt so troubled in my life. Were it an order to go to Sitka, to the devil, to battle with rebels or Indians, I think you would not hear a whimper from me. . . . My first thoughts were of resignation, and I had almost made up my mind to ask Dodge for some place on the Pacific Railroad, . . . and then again various colleges ran through my memory, but hard times and an expensive family have brought me back. . . . If it were at all certain that you would accept the nomination of President in May, I would try and kill the intervening time and then judge of the chances, but I do not want you to reveal your plans to me till you choose to do so. It was hard to drive Sherman out of the army or compel him to oppose his friend—to force the

friends, about what emergency men are worth; so leaving them out of the count altogether, and deducting also the 50, 0000 veteran volunteers who are claimed as having re-enlisted in 1863 and 1864, and reinforcing these by 40,000 more for good measure, making an aggregate deduction of 190,000, and there still remain two and a half millions of men. Upon these facts we may safely commit to the care of the future the fame of those who wore the gray. Yet, in the face of these figures, Lieutenant-Colonel Dodge, of the United States army, by a recent paper in one of our great magazines, has fairly earned the title of a modern military Columbus when he tells us that in fifty important battles, which he names, at the point of fighting contact, the Confederates outnumbered the Federals by an average of about two per cent. Let us lament the unkind fate of the Federal leaders who have fallen into the hands of this unmerciful iconoclast of their reputations. For, in claiming that with the 2,500

question of which is the better soldier. There are logical reasons why it took three or more Federals to overcome one Confederate. It was not for want of courage on the part of the Federal soldier. The men who laid their lives on the sacrificial altar in front of Marye's Heights, the men who stormed the Bloody Angle at Spotsylvania, were certainly brave men, vet the fact stands uncontested that the Confederates, with 600,000 held at bay for four years the Federals with 2,778,304. Colonel Dodge, in the August (1891) number of the Century, speaks of the subduing of the South as having been well done and in a reasonable time. When we remember that the coalition against Napoleon in 1814 invaded France in January, and in sixty days they had her capital in their possession and Napoleon was in exile; when we remember that the next coalition against France was made on March 25, 1815, and that in less than ninety days Napoleon was a prisoner, and France was at the feet of the allies;

The scouts had seen the 16th Army Corps, commanded by General Dodge, move from Corinth to Pulaski, and on Friday, November A letter intended for General Bragg was also found. General Dodge sent for Davis and told him that he had a serious chargis had made no reply until this time. Then he said: General Dodge, I know the danger of my situation, and am willing to t He was ready to die rather than betray his friends. General Dodge remonstrated with the young prisoner, and insisted thatand to my country. Pleading was useless. He thanked General Dodge for his kind interest, but remained firm. Davis was coand said: The boys will have to fight without me. General Dodge still had hope that Davis would reveal the name of the mp, and thus save his own life. One of the officers of General Dodge rapidly approached the scaffold, and asked the youth if my informer. He then requested the officer to thank General Dodge for his efforts to save him, but to repeat that he coul
