s; as it is, they are dangerous failures. When — was drunk, he had some few men drowned before Yorktown. I know of no other feat of his. Franklin's battle of West Point was a most runaway picket fight of ours. His part on the Chickahominy was unpardonable. He sent over a division, (his own) was present on that side out of fire, and never interfered to prevent them from being sacrificed by driblets and rendered a prey to their false position. I was horrified at it, as described by Gen. Taylor and all others. Is it surprising that I want to get out of this mess? Besides, they have sent me a Major-Generalship, like all these others, dating from 4th July, muddled in a batch of new and very ordinary junior officers. Do they forget that I was appointed twelfth on the original list ? That I, on the heels of Bull Run, faced the enemy with a Jersey brigade, in advance of all others — McClellan, McDowell, et id omne genus, nearly forcing me to come back of the "Seminary." Do they fo

Should he retire on Nashville (as the newspapers say he is now doing) we will be advancing towards Louisville; but should he venture on Florence or Savannah to unite his forces with Resecrans or Grant, we will have to concentrate enough of our forces from Middle and East Tennessee to follow him rapidly and defeat him in a great battle, when we would be able to resume our march as before indicated. We must, however, as soon as practicable, cons from Tupelo, for I wish you the amplest success, both on your and the country's account. You had evidently but one of four things to do: First, to attack Halleck at Corinth; second, to attack Buell at or about Chattanooga; third, to attack Grant at or about Memphis; fourth, to remain idle at Tupelo. From what you state the first is evidently inadmissible and the last cannot be entertained for one moment, for action — action — action is what we require. Now, with regard to the o
last night. I give you with pleasure the following views on your proposed operations from Tupelo, for I wish you the amplest success, both on your and the country's account. You had evidently but one of four things to do: First, to attack Halleck at Corinth; second, to attack Buell at or about Chattanooga; third, to attack Grant at or about Memphis; fourth, to remain idle at Tupelo. From what you state the first is evidently inadmissible and the last cannot be entertained for one moof your present position at Tupelo. The third proposition would have afforded you some success, but not as brilliant and important in its results as the second one, if the newspapers will permit you to carry it successfully into effect, for Halleck and Buell occupying the base of a long isosceles triangle, of which Mobile is the apex, could get to Chattanooga before you if they should become aware of your movements, and then you would have to contend again with superior forces, as usual to
62. Dear Pet: I thank you for your kind, long letter. You extend to me hope. You suggest withdrawing me and my division out of this ignoble position. With Pope's army, I would breathe again. We have no Generals McClellan is the failure I ever proclaimed him. He has been punished, just as I at once comprehended the morapid imbecility. For McClellan, he is burnt out. Never once on a battle-field, you have nothing to hope from him as a leader of a column. How do they expect Pope to beat, with a very inferior force, the veterans of Ewell and Jackson ? But these are episodes. We deceive ourselves. There was a people of old — it was the warvern Hill. He went out four miles and came back again. Still, a "false fuss" injures the whole army. McClellan is dangerous, from the want of digesting his plans. He positively has no talents. Adieu. Get me and my "fighting division" with Pope. With best regards, yours, Kearny. To Mr. O. S. Halstead, Jr., Newark, N. J.

Further from the North. We continue our extracts from Northern papers of the 17th inst.: Captured Confederate letters — Beauregard's plans for the Western Campaign. The following letters were captured some time ago by Gen. Buell while in process of transmission for file to Brigadier-General Thomas Jordan, Assistant Adjutant-General of the Confederate army: General Beauregard to Adjutant General Cooper.[Confidential] Mobile, Ala., Sept. 5, 1862. General: Under the supposition that on the restoration of my health I would be returned to the command of Department No. 2, I had prepared, whilst at Bladin, Alabama, a plan of operations in Tennessee and Kentucky, based on my knowledge of that part of the theatre of war; but hearing that my just expectations are to be disappointed. I have the honor to communicate it to the War Department, in the hope that it may be of service to our arms and to our cause. It was submitted by me to Gen. Bragg on the 2d inst. By

evident he has the advantage of two bases of operations — the Cumberland and Tennessee rivers — and that if we advance towards our objective points without getting rid of him we would expose our lines of communication with Chattanooga. We must then give him battle first, or compel him to retire before us. Should he retire on Nashville (as the newspapers say he is now doing) we will be advancing towards Louisville; but should he venture on Florence or Savannah to unite his forces with Resecrans or Grant, we will have to concentrate enough of our forces from Middle and East Tennessee to follow him rapidly and defeat him in a great battle, when we would be able to resume our march as before indicated. We must, however, as soon as practicable, construct strong works to command the Tennessee and Cumberland rivers, for otherwise our communication would be cut off by the enemy as soon as these two rivers shall have risen sufficiently to admit the entrance of their gunboats and transpo

He was not "of us" in Mexico, but in a rear column once saw a distant flash in a guerrilla fight. His skill is a myth — a political version of his own part at Bull Run.

T. Beauregard. Gen. Braxton Bragg, commanding Department No. 2, Mobile, Ala. The Famous Criticism of the late General Kearny on M'Clellan. Wilkes's (N. Y.) Spirit of the Times, of last week, publishes the following letter of Major General Philip Kearny to O. S. Halstead, Jr., of Newark N. J., which has been made the subject of much comment: Harrison's Landing, 4th August, 1862. Dear Pet: I thank you for your kind, long letter. You extend to me hope. You suggest withdraent ? Two nights ago the rebel batteries fired from across the river, and killed and wounded some thirty men. Last night Hooker started out on a crude expedition to Malvern Hill. He went out four miles and came back again. Still, a "false fuss" injures the whole army. McClellan is dangerous, from the want of digesting his plans. He positively has no talents. Adieu.
