Darby t prophylactic it Baltic of a a arms Katash the get disaster to the Yankee arms Pope and Mcdowell severely denounced. The special correspondent of the new York Tribune writing from Camp near Chain Bridge thus Speaks of the a a imbecility of the Yankee generals to which he alone attributes the recent a great slowly and sullenly the two armies of the Republic out Genera led and Defeated have fallen Back from the Battle Field to Centreville from Centre Villo to Fairfax from Fairfax to the to Tomar. The last Experiment in generalship is the most immediate and i disastrous failure. Once More the National Arius gather about the National Capitol and the defence of Washington is the Stra Getic signal of the Peninsula Advance upon Richmond. The Retreat from Centreville to Fairfax was Complete on monday Sumner Seigel and Poiter held the Hill during the Day. Hertz Man Mcdowell and the rest were already gone. All monday night the rearward struggled along the crowded Road to Fairfax Poiter covering the Retreat. On tuesday morning the rebels once More held the sweeping line of forts that pointed to the East All Winter Long and defied our Advance. Last night the whole army retreated and this morning the Western Hank of the Potomac is the Only Virginia Camp of the National troops. Heintzelman and Franklin went Back on the Alex it Andria Road Mcdowell by Falls Church Sumner and Seigel and Porter by Vienna and Lewisville. We May bitterly announce once More that the army of the Potomac and the army of Virginia crouching beneath the thirty forts that Girdle the capital Are believed to be Safe. I suppose no future Hope can be hazarded if the details of an accomplished Retreat Are Given to the world. 1 record therefore very briefly and incompletely what i have seen and heard in the three nights and two Days just passed nights and Days of sleepless activity which can scarcely have brought to any one who shared their Gloo Tny experiences a single cheerful thought or moment of repose. When i left Washington on sunday night although it was known that Pope had been Defeated and driven Back to ,, nose or very Lew supposed he was to abandon that position famous for its strength without a fight. A Battle was expected next Day at the furthest and no one certainly knew whether there had not already been an other during the Day. I passed thro Alexandria and out on the fait lax Road at seven in tire evening. Not half a mile beyond the town i met a train of heavily loaded wagons and halted the Driver a a where Are you from a a to e who e Story was told in a word. The army was retreating. For the next ten Miles the Road was filled with the trains of every corps in the army everywhere crowded and frequently halting. Mingled with the wagons were great numbers of ambulances and carriages filled with wounded and dying men. They bad been All Day on the Road a Day of confine nent privation discomfiture and torture. Many must have remained All night on the Toad Many also in the wagons which As conveyances Lor wounded men Are Only one degree worse than ambulances. Near Alexandria and at intervals for some Miles beyond the bivouac fires of Many Camps blazed along the Road and glimmered in Distant guards for the trains straggling cowards from the front sections of batteries squadrons of cavalry and further on towards Fairfax regiments and shattered brigades moving to the rear and finally the last division of reinforce merits marching for the front streamed along the Road and wound in and out of the endless trains. It was ii Possi ble to ride faster than a walk. 1 reached Fairfax at 11. The town was quiet Only a guard at the further end none of whose officers knew where Headquarters were whether at Centre Ille or to the rear. So i spent what As left of the night at Fairfax and Rode on next morning to Centreville. It is needless now to explain the constantly changing disposition of forces during the Days which followed the defeat of saturday. Three corps at least remained at Centreville on monday and were scattered Over the Broad slopes of the Hill on either Side of the Road in Unini itary disorder. They had never been in order no More bad the rest of the army since the there was no Bead to put them in order. There was no order a any department of the service. There was not ammunition in the batteries or in die Cartridge boxes of the infantry enough Lor another Battle yet not one knew where the ammunition trains were to be found. In the first five minutes i met three ordnance officers Riding in search of these trains. No fault of theirs that the trains could not be found. They Are Able offices but no control was in their bands no Means of doing their duty. Orderlies had just been in alt directions in Aea Reh of the wagons and it was already 16 o clock and a a Lyle was hourly expected since Daylight. The Camps wire inextricably entangled not to my Eye or judgment Only though i have seen enough to know something Jabout it but i Beard minding a Corpt d a not know and could not ascertain the relative position of other corp9. Another general a regular officer of the engineers and famous for topographical clearness Ana skill said to me at one glance of the Hill Side was enough to show that there was no general Al the Lead of the army encamped there. It was no better with the supplies of food. The troops were half fed or fed irregularly. Regimental wagons were unloaded and ordered to Alexandria for food and forage. Then the order was countermanded and they were re loaded and ordered to the rear brigades without supplies were sent out on the flanks and in front and left there without wagons to shift for themselves i suppose to subsist on the country and from the country they might have gathered scanty grass and if in the Woods leaves for the horses for the men nothing. But ii a general on tha eve of Battle cannot Supply his troops with powder it is useless to expect they shall be fed. I need not multiply instances. There was mis management everywhere because at Headquarters there was incompetence confusion no settled plans no head. The army was not so much disheartened As enraged willing to fight but not willing to be sacrificed denouncing with a that Hail no exceptions the incapacity which had Causer their defeat. No one believed the combined Force of the rebels were in front and As for the Battle of saturday the men the officers the generals who fought it confess with shame and anger that they were beaten by Hall their number. The army was not Defeated its comr Snder was out Gen erased. Lie neither a knew where Bis enemy was nor would suffer himself to be informed. He was warned that the enemy was massing on Bis left a every Soldier knew in but he disbelief. denied it sent batteries and troops to the right to the Centre to the rear everywhere but where they were wanted then in a moment found him9ell surrounded enveloped crushed and Defeated. A exposed flank while the enemy were turning that Point. Officers stationed in front on the Tappahannock line or a 0r a fees get constant Clouds of dust which announced the Taoping columns of the enemy but to the Eye of the general they gave no sign. He persisted in regarding their Success at Catlett Sas a Mere cavalry dash and was hardly convinced by Manassas that the enemy had gained h s rear in Force brom that hour his movements have been followed by nothing but disaster. But it is needless and i have no time to accumulate evidence on such Points. Half the strength of an army is Confidence in its commander. That conf a Lence is not Given to Gen. Pope. The opinion of his troops is unanimously against him. I saw numerous officers of All ranks in almost every corps of the army. There is no dissent of of disagreement. They will not cannot fight again under Pope with Confidence. The army of Virginia demands a general. I state these facts As i find them expressing no other opinion than what Moulds itself out of the facts. Heretofore i have praised Gen. Pope some friends of mine thought it too liberally. I do not think so. It is still my opinion that Down to the time when be arrived on the Rapp Hannack his Campaign was pursued with ability and was deservedly successful. But from the moment he set i is loot this Sirle the River there have been Only delay disaster and Retreat that his son has lost Confidence in him is a fact i am bound to record. Iii state it strongly it is because the impression suddenly received was equally Strong. Frota the risk tread Ett Ninet 13th >"�1-the Finucci rendition of the con % red Erncr. Wear enabled from papers before Congress to prepare a succinct and in resting statement of the financial condition of the country and to enlighten the Public at to the amount of our Public debt its class and receipts at the Public Treasury up to the first August and the probable demands that will he made upon the resources of the South in View of the continuance of the War and the exigencies of the country arising therefrom. We Dis tribute this information under appropriate head the Public debt of the confederacy it is ascertained from official data famished by the Treasury department that the whole expenditures of the government from its commencement to the 1st of August last amount to 1347,272,958 85. It should be stated however that five billions of the amount charged As expenditure has been paid for the redemption of Deposit certificates and the aggregate above stated is subject to that abatement when considered in the Light of actual expenses. The expenditures up to the 1st of August Are As follows War department from excess in the Qia Lity of the National currency which As it exceeds the usual business wants of the comm Unity must be productive of High prices without relation to the actual value of the currency. It is understood that the interest notes although current to a certain degree have been generally withdrawn from circulation on account of their value As temporary investments. Most of them have been taken under the belief that the interest would be paid like other interest and the Secretary of the trea Saty has encouraged this belief by a recommendation to Congress that the interest should be paid annually. Poi pet of another War lax pay went by the states Etc. It is supposed that Congress will be under the necessity of providing an other War tax. From the Var tax returns and from estimates As to such states As have not yet made Complete returns this fund maybe set Down at seven Hundred millions. The War tax has been paid by the several states As follows Navy department civil and miscellaneous $193,370.519 41 14,605,777 86 13,766,503 43 ses a the Kyc. A a a his advice was said to have had undue controlling influence. A the Only order Pope gave was to Retreat. Mcdowell fought the Battle. Pope leaned Only on his advice yielded him command throughout. It was a Blunder from the a it is useless a 6aid an officer to fight under Mcdowell. I shall do my duty As an officer but we shall lose every Battle where he Ido not know whether i have heard treachery or imbecility most frequently imputed to Mcdowell. Perhaps of Tenet he is Given the Benefit of his alternative. I did not hear one suggestion in his Favory no excuse nor palliation. No order of Battle was communicated to generals of any rank. Generals of corps were not told who supported them who was on their right or left what movements concerned their own Xwnty-8ix pitched Battles. It has been fashionable of late to speak of the present War As the Grean eat knows in history. Yet we doubt whether its real vastness is generally appreciated. It is True that in other wars larger armies May have been assembled but there has been no War which in the extent of the territory Over which it ha9 raged in the size of the armies employed on either Side in the magnitude of the operations and the Quick succession of Battles has been at All comparable with the one in which we Are engaged. In modern times it is impossible to rival the numbers that followed xerxes into Greece or that of Tamerlane and Genghis Khan la the.

But As the final settlement has not yet taken place the certificates have not As yet been delivered up and the account is nut yet closed. The returns from the states of Alabama Louisiana Arkansas and Texas have not yet been rendered in Complete. The two former Stales have nevertheless pair their taxes in Advance. Commands or positions or on what to Rcd or the circumstances permit analogies to be drawn with these cases. If we compare this struggle with the conflicts in which Europe was engaged during the wars of Napoleon we shall find that those were inferior in Many of the elements we have the armies were Large toward the end immense but the area Over which the wars were waged was comparatively Small operations were More circumscribed in their nature and the contest was generally terminated by a single Battle after half a dozen minor combats. Last year our military operations were characterized by an unaccountable lassitude. There were Only four Battles of importance during the campaigns Manassas Oak Hill Belmont and Leesburg. This year on the contrary there has been a rapid Suc $74.361,656 this statement indicates an evident indisposition of our people to make in vestments in this form and furnishes an explanation of much of that disturbance of the Standard of value and enhancement of prices in the country which have been the consequence of the Large and disproportionate Issue of Treasury notes.

We learn from a gentleman just arrived from North Alabama that Tho Federr is evacuated Huntsville Between the 1st and 4tl, of this month Den. Buell and staff having left there week or two previous and Gen. Sloben Crane some Days after leaving Gen Lytell in command. They left via Stevenson returned suddenly in a Day or Trio and aah a attn permanently a Avius fitted in cd. They took from Madison county probably 1500 negroes Many went voluntarily and other forced away. They also took horses and mulch in Large us motors which were Imine i Atchly branded Quot a. Aud Token without being paid for. The negroes tver employed As teamsters and in other kind of labor for which the r previous trainings fitted them. Some of them made their escape and return-erlotlier8 were secured by their masters who pursued them but the number recovered was Small. Most of those to cd were negro men but in some instances men. Women and children were taken leaving plantations entirely destitute. Some of the plantations were desolated and turned into Barren wastes. In one instance near inn Stville not a panel of fencing was left around Tho entire place in others they were consumed for Miles Aud Stock left to gaze at pleasure. In Many cases it will be almost impossible to gather the crops or to prepare for next year Huntsville was but Little injured but. The suburbs and Vicinity suffered greatly and tire machinery of the Memphis amp Charleston Railroad depot was broken up and destroyed the depot bail Jinga were not in Rcd. Between Huntsville and Stevenson the country is desolated and deserted.

Plan the Battle was fought. I asked a question about the plan. Sir there wa9 no plan. We knew nothing but what we discovered for ourselves. I do not know to this hour who Wop on my right. I asked a is it not usual to inform generals of corps of divisions to such Poist a a usual the general who neglects to do it is in a commanding Hill in Bur Possession was threatened by a hostile movement in Force. Gen. Pope was informed was asked to Send another Battery to hold it. Quot if you do not in fifteen minutes the enemy will be in Possession of the he refused to Send it. In ten urinates the rebel artillery was playing from the Bill on our troops. Generals who fought with the Moat heroic courage and the most soldierly ability whose praises Are in every Mouth speak of the Battles in which they Haw just won honest Fame with Chargin and remorse. Their own efforts became futile from the incompetency of their commanding general. Said one to me Quot i must ask to it i he relieved unless general Pope a removed. I cannot see my men i met a general who had led his regiment in the hottest of the fight with heroic courage and Veteran skill. He said �?o1 have lost a thousand men dare not go into the Hospital and look into the faces of those wounded men who i know have shed their blood bravely and in it was Carl Burz.
