The Daily Dispatch: March 24, 1863., [Electronic resource], An opinion by a Federal soldier of the War. (search)
ahony and other Democrats, who were opposed to the war policy of the Administration. A few months' experience of the actual realities of the war seems to have cured him of the functional heresy of Abolitionism. Since the letter was written, this soldier has gone to his long home, a victim, says the Argue, to this fratricidal strife, so unnatural and human to a Christian and civilized people. His wife, to whom the letter was written, is now a bereaved widow: Wilson Springs, Mo. Sunday, Nov. 30, 10 A. M. 1862. My Dear Wife: It is with renewed pleasure that I take my pen in hand to write you. I had expected a letter very strongly until yesterday's male, but have been disappointed. I desire to write to you more especially, as I feel disappointed with regard to the probable result of the war; though a thorough going war man, I have become opposed to carrying on the war after January next. I have been induced to this from a belief that, after that period, we could not be a
The Daily Dispatch: December 1, 1863., [Electronic resource], Affairs on the Rapidan — no battle yet. (search)
nformation from the seat of war warrants the conclusion that the general fight between the armies of Gens. Lee and Meade, which was expected to commence yesterday, did not take place. Up to 2 o'clock in the afternoon there had only been heavy skirmishing, both armies apparently manœuvring for position. It is hardly possible, however, that a general fight can be delayed longer than to-day. The following official dispatch was received from Gen. Lee at the War Department yesterday: [official Dispatch.] Headq'rs Army of Northern Va., Via Orange C. H., Nov. 30th. To Gen. S. Cooper: No movement of importance by either army yesterday. The enemy is in line on the east side of Mine Run. This army is in position on the west side. (Signed) R. E. Lee, General. [Mine Run is a small stream emptying into the Rapidan. The Fredericksburg Plankroad intersects it about fourteen miles due east of Orange C. H., and about ten or twelve miles west of Chancellorsville.]

Affairs in the Southwest. Atlanta, Dec. 1. --The Intelligencer, of this morning, has a special dispatch dated Dalton, Nov. 30th, which says: Cleburne's division engaged Osterhaus one mile this side of Ringgold on Friday morning, driving him back with a loss of 1,500, capturing 320 prisoners and four stands of colors.

Daring burglary. --A daring burglary occurred on Shockoe Hill on the night of the 30th of November, and on the following day officer Perrin arrested Geo. Jacques, charged with being the perpetrator. Mrs. Mary Stevens, the keeper of a small saloon, and whose house was entered and robbed, made the following statement, on oath, to the Mayor, yesterday. She said: On the afternoon of the 30th ult., about four o'clock, the prisoner came into my house, and seeing several watches in my show case asked if I would sell one of them. I declined to do so. After remaining a short time the prisoner left the house. About seven o'clock that evening a lady neighbor called in and informed me of the illness of her child. I closed and fastened my door, after putting my children to bed, and went out see the sick child. On my way I saw the prisoner and two other men standing in the street, but thought nothing of it. When I returned home, at ten o'clock, my door was open, and the watchmen were in
We have received New York papers of Monday, the 7th inst., from the Exchange Bureau: Gen. Burnside announces in an official dispatch, dated at Knoxville, November 30th, that the enemy attacked him that day in force and was repulsed with considerable loss. A press telegram says that the assault was made on Fort Sanders about daylight on Monday morning, the 16th and 17th Georgia, and 13th Mississippi, leading the assailant, who were greatly impeded by wires tied around stumps; but "not one on their side faltered — not a score of the gallant stormers escaped." The fighting is represented as desperate, but was over by sunrise. Gen. Burnside offered them an armistice from 10 A. M. to 5 P. M. to bury their dead, which was accepted. The Yankees state the Confederate loss at 1,000 killed and wounded, 250 prisoners, and 3 flags. Their own loss is put at 80. Col. Girarde, of the 13th Mississippi, was killed, and Lt. Col. O'Brien, brother of Mrs. Brownlow, is a prisoner. The N. Y
Charge of burglary. --Yesterday morning a man called James Wood, an Englishman by birth, but a deserter from the Yankee army and now a paroled prisoner, was arraigned before the Mayor to answer the charge of burglariously entering the dwelling-house of Mary Stevens, on the 30th of November, and stealing therefrom $260 in Alabama State bank notes, $100 in gold and silver coin, and a gold watch valued at $500. The morning after Mrs. Stevens was robbed she procured the services of officer Perrin, and, accompanying him to Dillard's boarding-house, near the Second Market, pointed out George Jacques as one of the robbers. A portion of the stolen money being found on Jacques, he was committed for trial. Officer Perrin, at the time he arrested Jacques, noticed that Wood was a lodger in the same room. On Saturday last Mrs. Stevens received information that she could recover her money by calling again at Dillard's house. She says she did so, when a small man, whose name she d
