r military reasons — for instance, demonstration against the advance of our armies — will be held by a mere handful of mounted men, depending upon the co-operation of guerilla bands in cases of a move upon our part. The point of concentration chosen by the enemy exhibits no insignificant sagacity. Sabine Lake lies immediately upon the Gulf coast, being connected with the Gulf by a narrow channel known as Sabine Pass. The lake is formed by the inflow of the waters of the Sabine and Neches rivers. Upon the Louisiana side of the Sabine is situated Niblet's Bluffs; in almost the same latitude, on the west side of the Neches, lies Beaumont — a small town. Between the two points — by land across the peninsula formed by the two rivers — there lies an immense swamp, impassable at some seasons of the year even to local conveyances; but for the passage of an army, its infantry, cavalry, artillery, baggage and supply trains, would be at all times impracticable.

g Yankee idea of what Grant's campaign is to be: On our right are the Raccoon, Lookout, Sand, and Cumberland Mountains. These can be crossed. They were by Rosecrans, but after months of special preparation; and should the enemy attempt the same manœuvre he may reasonably expect the same fate that befell Rosecrans at Chickamauga. It is one hundred and twenty miles from Chattanooga to Atlanta, through the same great valley. With his flanks and rear thus protected by Dame Nature, a powerful army to back him, necessitated to establish a short line, without fear of being flanked, Gen. Grant will be enabled to make the campaign to Atlanta without a serious engagement; and the name Atlanta is to be used in the sense of a compound one, signifying and including Rome, with her arsenals; Montgomery, with her great stores of cotton; Mobile, with her splendid advantages, and, indeed, all the country between the valley and the Mississippi river. It will never do to give up Chattanooga.

I believe that but five were captured, the rest escaping by reason of their unprecedented display of agility. Information from the front of our forces gives us knowledge of the fact that Gens.
