The organs of public sentiment throughout the South are earnest and unanimous in appealing for the restoration of General Johnston to his command. His name alone would be a tower of strength.--Without pretending to decide upon his military abilities, it is evident that he has the confidence of the people and the army, and that single fact would draw a host of men in Georgia and South Carolina to the standard of the Confederacy. The Army of the West would be inspired to new exertions, absentees would return, and, in a word, the whole moral and physical strength of the Southern States developed.
