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 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.
