Tent giant is his Superior 5n strategy jew Well As i tics stands proven by every step that has then made since the last crap drag of the and by none has the superiority of the Federal commander been More clearly manifested by the a Noever by which he withdrew our whole army from the rebel front conveyed it without molestation to the South Side of the Jumes.

Tent he will remain the master to the end we do not doubt and we have equal Confidence that while be explodes the pretensions of in inferior in will relieve the coun try of its Long perplexity by the Otter destruction of the rebel Host under Lee e com Mand. The reputation which Lee has a Quirck As a general has been obtained mainly through the offic Menees and insubordination of certain of our own commanders. It was his Fortune to be confronted for a Long while by a Nuin of irresolute purposes and feeble and it was Bias till More marvellous Luck when that incubus upon our Martini Energy was set aside to have our army emasculated of its vigor and and might have been driven headlong in to and Dot of Richmond but Oor troops instead of being allowed to Ose their Etra Cess were suddenly re called by b Comman Der bed been absent from the by. And who Refuge of a gunboat to the perils of the Field. Upon our Side then fell despondency and gloom while the Behs of the confederacy pealed joyfully for Lee As the Savior of its fortunes. At the second Battle of a Manassas the combinations formed by Pope would have triumphed in the destruction of the Arm of Virginia had he been seconded in Good Faith by the legions of the Peninsula which the vigor of the War department had Bro t to his assistance. Instead however of marching to his bid Ibey rent nine Back find one of them even who had reached the front actually walked Bis divisions from the Field to Render Pope s defeat More certain. Lee was thus again made r Vic Tor when by every Law of Opportunity and combination he might have been to prong y Defeated. Intoxicated with Bis Marvell Ous Success for he had set out after Pope expecting to catch him entirely alone the general had the audacity to March Bis columns into Maryland with the whole army of the Potomac grouped directly in his rear. So unwise nay utterly reckless lid this movement seem to military Mem that some of them laughingly declared supposed he had an Assurance from be Federal authorities that he would not lie molested in his Enterprise. The truth was of bless be bad ascertained the dissensions and insubordination which existed in our Camp and knowing also the timidity and Resolution of the Federal commander be certain always of a margin for Retreat. Be have seek that he was followed at the Rote of. About five Miles a Day and after int Days of ravage was brought to Bay in 36 Vicinity of Sharpsburg. A Battle was ten fought in which our forces were led o a decided Victory by Hooker Nevertie Ess the beaten enemy was allowed the Glo of sleeping on the held. And permitted retire from it with All his plunder on just at this period however. Find ing hat Halleck was unwilling to support him Felt obliged to throw no Hia command and the impending Battle who Cluj his. Vevera had devised fell under the control of Meade. The country knows its history and it also shows that though it resulta in a Victory which utterly demoralized to rebel Host Pursuit was not Given by of forces for three Days. Extraordinary Rains however came As our auxiliary and Lee was detained at Williamsport until our Vic Torsions and much Superior numbers a come up to Bis front and ranged themselves within the distance of barely half a escape for him now seemed to be impose ble and it has since been ascertained Tea be had barely seven rounds of admonition in Bis Camp. Besides this the impassible Potomac was in Bis rear and it was obvious that even a few Trees Hen from the Banks a mile or two above and cast into the Stream could surely interrupt any preliminaries pontoons. We doubt not h was Meades distracted Ifill efforts by the Bullen and jealous partisans whom the discarded chief Tain left behind. Throughout the whole Campaign of the Peninsula which Lee was allowed to prepare for by the annexing pause at he was never vigorously or consistently confronted and it is in proof upon the records of the govern meet that on More than one occasion oar overwhelming in meets were clumsily divided Onca even by a River to receive the condensed assault of the entire Fonfeder note Force. It is in testimony also on the oath of generals whose patriotism and veracity there will be none to question that the simple downright razor of on Onder such desultory Leader Thip As they could get would have carried no on three separate Oca Wiona. Into the rebel had they but been permitted to improve their gift Oriya.

His custom claimed a Victory but the outside world Thich looked without s knowledge of the Interior facts Inu led Lee is n Grutt general and accorded him High credit for such h successful termination of his any vigorous commander however could easily have terminated made him the laughing Stock of the military schools. He was next spaced from defeat at Fred Ericksburg by Franklin tying up the services of forty thousand men whom against on he withheld from the supp it of Meade Ami at Chancel Lourille be was thoroughly disgraced by his position turned in Broad Daylight by an army which Lay directly underneath his eyes. He bad boasted Bis position on the bight of Fredericksburg was entirely impregnable yet Hooker swinging Bis army in a manner the world bos never seen equalled with such a Host before landed in its rear so that his battlements were walked Over by our sol Diers on Tho succeeding Day. The history of Lee s generalship and. The career of the army of Virginia would then and there have been wound up had not the name motives operated to the betrayal of the few pril commander which bad previously struck the ground from under Pope and bum Side. We need not recapitulate the circumstances. It i Spongh to say that having been baffled for want of co opera Tion and obedience. Hooker returned to Bis Camp with Bis army after having occupied Lee s Strong bold end inflicted non him such s punishment that he dared Mot fire a gun at him in his Retreat. The which had lost Jack son in this episode Felt thai it had been disgraced and Lee was obliged to project another raid into Maryland to restore his prestige. This Enterprise which was still More senseless than die first was detected at once by Hooker who placing himself by rapid marches its front of Washington held Leo at Bay Long enough to enable the government to concentrate us troops near Frederick and to isolate Ewell who was already in Maryland from the main can federate As to oblige Feim to desire to the rebel army Bat he bad some experience in the Cros purposes of his pro slavery chieftains. Most of them were ambitiously sighing for his place and As he had seen them betray his predecessors partly through envy and partly through aspiring Hope rhe probably thought it would to ascertain How far he could rely upon them to put a finisher on Lee and make himself a great Man. He there fore called a Council to ascertain if they would stand by him whereupon they voted against an attack and Thos virtually replied that they would not. In half an hour after this decision was recon ded Lee who seemed to have received information of it of Tenn preparations for his Retreat Arross the River and daring the next Twenty four hours be leisurely accomplished it had be been struck by Meade while venturing this operation he must inevitably have been de. Moli bed and be would have vanished from the Roll of horses with an expression of derision that would As we said before a five been disgraceful to a Corporal. Sooh in not Itie outset of this Campaign opposed to the arduously acquired and signs victories of Grant. What has been devoted since is in keeping with their respective qualities and records.
