3. Rosecrans. 'Twas something to be a chieftain when The Chaldee hero fought, For 'twas the battle-step of progress then, When manhood's work was wrought. And at the Pass, and Salamis, still higher Waved the glorious crest, When hero-warriors burned with patriot fire, And won a country's rest. And something 'twas, when Hamilcar's great son Was hero under oath-- But in that contest 'twas not Rome that won, For manhood conquered both. And when across the Medial gulf we look For radiant fieldsain, The great cause it shall stand.” A continent and more — there's freedom to lose-- The present requires it-- The great Future demands and freemen must choose As the ages invoke it. Lo! thousands sprang forth from valley and plain, And our Rosecrans was there-- The chief in the strife, and now we proclaim His deeds also are there. Hail! then, the great chief whose victories tell What the hero has done-- Let's march to his step, and all rebels compel To acknowledge that one, From E Pluribu
If you advance as soon as possible on them in front, while I attack them in flank, I think we can use them up. Respectfully your obedient servant, Geo. H. Thomas, Major-General Commanding. This order, the Georgia papers say, saved General Rosecrans's army. The Southern journals came to a knowledge of this order from the fact that the adiutant of General Palmer's staff was taken prisoner, and this order was found in his pocket. There is no man in the nation who thinks that Rosecrans Rosecrans could have been superseded by a better man than General Thomas. There is an earnest heartiness in this note, in speaking of the enemy as rebels. I think we can use them up are words the patriot likes to hear. As an illustration of General Thomas's sagacity, a general officer now in this city says that if Thomas could have had ten thousand fresh men on Sunday afternoon, he would have utterly routed the rebel army. This officer says that General Thomas clearly saw the prize of victory within
President of the confederates) kicked and now waxes. In other words, Madame Tussaud has added him to her wax figures. He stands comfortably near McClellan, who waxed here as he waxed in America, and was the last addition but one to her wonderful gallery — that one being Hunt, the murderer of his wife and children in the cab. Madame Tussaud has artists hard at work on the five pirates of the Flowery Land who were lately hanged. A patriotic father.--An officer from Louisville led one of Rosecrans's regiments into battle, his superior having been called to other duty. In the advance, this man's son fell by a rebel bullet. The father saw him fall, but could not stop to care for him. Narrating the circumstances, the bereaved father said, with tears in his eyes: My boy, you know, is gone. I was in temporary command of the regiment, and as we were pressing on I saw my boy fall. I could not turn back to help him, so I said to a soldier, Look to Johnnie, and went on, and we did the wo
d into range, and the proud Colonel tumbled from his horse, his lips fresh-stained with the syllable of vile reproach he had flung on a mother's grave in the hearing of her child! A few swift moments ticked on by musket-shots, and the tiny gunner was swept up at a rebel swoop and borne away a prisoner. Soldiers, bigger but not better, were taken with him, only to be washed back again by a surge of Federal troopers, and the prisoner of thirty minutes was again John Clem of ours; and General Rosecrans made him a sergeant, and the stripes of rank covered him all over, like a mouse in a harness; and the daughter of Mr Secretary Chase presented him a silver medal appropriately inscribed, which he worthily wears, a royal order of honor, upon his left breast; and all men conspire to spoil him; but, since few ladies can get at him here, perhaps he may be saved. But what about last night? Well, like Flora McFlimsey, the Sergeant had nothing to wear; the clothing in the wardrobe of loya
Rosecrans to Halleck.--The following letter explains itself: headquarters Department of the Cumberland, Murfrefsboro, Tenn., March 6, 1863. Major-General H. W. Halleck, General-in-Chief U. S. A., Washington, D. C.: General: Yours of the first instant, announcing the offer of a vacant Major-Generalship to the General in the field who first wins an important and decisive victory, is received. As an officer and a citizen, I feel degraded at such an auctioneering of honor. Have we ortant and decisive victory, is received. As an officer and a citizen, I feel degraded at such an auctioneering of honor. Have we a General who would fight for his own personal benefit, when he would not for honor and his country? He will come by his commission basely in that case, and deserves to be despised by men of honor. But are all the brave and honorable generals on an equality as to chances? If not, it is unjust to those who probably deserve most. W, S. Rosecrans, Major-General.
