Nothing which can poslily orctir nt Chictgo
is so momentous to us us uie events n uicu arc
takii t; place on the We dun railroad, around
Atlanta, ami near iiariwr h rorry. r.ven sun-
nosiiiB that the Yankee Pence Democrats in that
Conventfon should carry ail before tliciu, in, d
n iinn.ite candidatA S on a distinct oitsu oi pe t
nud separation (which Is by no means sup;ioi-
l),e), yet all that would slgntiy nothini?, save lu
so tur as the action should he inlirnied by I'nse
ratification meetings which are to take pla e on
the V eldon road, near Atlanta, ana on or itujut
tbe rotomac.
If Atlanta were to fall, or Petorshur;t, or if
Sheriiliui should drive Burly buck to Lynchburg
or if any one of ilico events should uelall, then
nil the peace principles and pcaco Presidents
ol thlciiL'o would lie ut the election next Govern
ber where lust year's snow is, aid last night's
moonshine. War, for another Presiden
tial term, would swoop aw ty every ves-
tied of opposition. Hut, on tho other hand, if
Grant's and Sherman's armies should have
no more success within the next three months
than for the three last, und if Sheridan's
armv of lite "Middle Department" should
still be pretending to look for Early and taking
eare not to find him, or else, at tbe first sight of
him, running straicBi as inr tno last low
weeks In this case it will not matter to us in tho
least if the Chicago Democrats break np in utter
contusion, and the rremout party collapse, and
tho Davis-Wado party wither up, and Lincoln
and Seward reign supreme; nothing would
avail the scale of peace would preponderate, and
that ot war would klclt the beam.
In other words, the Issues of peace and war are
not in the bands of politicians mid statesmen; no,
not in the slightest degree: they are In the hands
ol soldiers, it is nscicsg to vote war it your last
armies are destroyed; useless to vote peace if
tour armies arc marching on flushed wit a victory,
to a splendid conuuest. Further, those Yankees
who aio war men lo-uay win oe peace men tu
three months, if their grand campaign turn out
un inter failnro : and those wno are lor po tco to
day (with a few exceptions) will foam for war
no veil lor Dloou witiiin lue same lureo iiiontus
if they see reason to believe that the Confederacy
is reeling to its mil.
It may. therefore, be afllrmcd most categorl
cnllv, and received as an axiom, that the doings
of the Chicago, or of the Baltimore, or of the
f'lcvcland Convention, or ot all mem put to
gether, are of no consequence in the world
Tho election in November will not be governe,
by the action of those politicians In August,
Imt l,v the military situation in noveiuocr
and the election in November itself siguitles
just as little as tbe Conventions ; because tbe
Issue ol war or peace must oe goverueu, uut uj

in nower. but hv the situation of the Invading
armies at the close of this campuign; and by the
possibility or impossibility or procuring a irosu
army to undertake Invasion next year. Which is
the same thing as to say that the Yankee nation will
iiiht na nnon this arirument itt-,1 so lonz as
shall be able to light us, ami no longer. Whether
under Lincoln or MeClullaii, in a constitutional
war. or an unconstitutional, the whole ontrre
between us, und every part of i', and the time of
ending it, and the terms of settling It all abide
the movitanie wager or oatrie.
Therefore, while the wholu of tho enemy'i
country Is hanging to-d ty upon the utterances of
tho te euranu wires eager to Know, not so muei

matters not to us what men are l i rule and to rob
in that country the next four ye irs ; and as to
their being for peace or for war, that depends not
Uon them, bnt upon us ; we shall cause them to
lie lor ciltier one or rue oilier, precisely in propor
tion as we shall drive back their armies, or bo
driven hv thcnl.
Yet it Is not strange that lliere Is so much
curiositv here about the action i t those Conven
tions. )t is Impossible to avol-1 looking to them
for something that may serve as a kind of sign,
showing what our enemies themselves (or one
party of them) think of their oh nice of cuu,ucr

serve as a sign, at least for thn day which is

Dctier cliance oi coming into place on a peace

parties contending for power ttTvocat war nntil

Even as signs, then, or weather-vanes to show

indications are fallacious ; especially In a season
of chauge and tempest like tbe present. Ac
cordingly, while we await the next news comiug

that, whatever l hat news may be this Urst of Sep

. William Tecumsch Sherman was born la Lan-
caster, Ohio, on the 8th day of February, 1820.
His father was the Hon. Charles II. Sherman,
one of the Judges of tho Supreme Court of that
State. In 183G, at the age of sixteen, he entered I
West Point as a cutlet, and was graduated ou the 1
With of June, 1810, sixth In his class. Young j
.Sherman at once entered the service, on grodu
ating, us second lieutenant in the 3d Artillory.and i
served In Florida through the winter of 1810 and
1H1. In November, 1841, be was promoted to a
first lieutenancy.
He was afterwards stationed at Fort Moultrie,
S. C. In 1816 he was sent to California, and re- '
inaiued there in service all through the Mexican
war, having reached the grade of captain. In
1850 he was married to the eldest daughter of1
Hon. Thomas Ewing, oi unio. in inoj lie re
signed his commission in the army and took
charge of the banking-house or Lucas, Turner &
Co., at San Francisco. In lHt'iO be was the Pre
sident of the State Military Academy of Louisi
ana, and remained In that position nntil the out
break of the present war.
On the 13th of June, 18C1, he was appointed
Colonel in the Regular Army, hit appointment
dating may 14, lsbl.and was assigned to the
command of the 13th Infuntry. On tbe 21st of
July occurred the unfortunate affair of Mauasses,
in which Sherman was engaged.
When General Anderson was assigned to the
department south of the Oblo, Goneral Sherman
was attached thereto as second in command, and
was soon afterwards despatched, with a force of
seven thousand men, composed of volunteers and
Kentucky Home Guards, to occupy Mulhratigu's
1U1I, a strategic point south of the Rolling Fork
of Salt river.
There his home guards left Mm, the reinforce
ments designed to strengthen bis command were
necessarily sent elsewhere, and bo found himself
with scarcely live thousand troops, In an un
friendly part of the country, confronting a Rebel
army of twenty-live thousand men, under Gene
ral liuckner. While ailalrs were in this position
General Anderson was relieved, and Genorul
Sherman succeeded to the very uncnviuble
position of commander of the department.
At one time General Sherman was set down as
"erazy," and quietly rolired to the command of
Benton Barracks, near St. I-onis. The evidence
of bis insanity was bis answer to the Secretary of
War that to make a tuectmful advance against
tbe enemy, then strongly posted at all strategic
points, from the Mississippi to Cumberland Gap,
would require an army of two hundred thousand
Etronif. The answer was the inspiration or tho
judgment of a military genius, but to the mind
of Mr. Secretary Cameron it was the prophecy of
a fulso wi.arJ.
General Halleck succeeded to the command of
the Department of the West, and General Sher
man was not long allowed to remain iu charge, of
a recruiting rende.vous at St. Louis.
When Goneral Grant moved on Fort Donelaon,
Sherman was intrusted with the forwarding to
him of reinforcements and supplies from Padu.
call. General Grant subsequently acknowledged
himself " greatly Indebted to his (Shermau's)
.promptness" in discharging that duty. After tbe
capture of that stronghold. General Sherman was
put in command of the 5th division of Grant's
army at 1'ittshurg Landing. On the 3btb of May.
for gallantry at Corinth, Sherman was appointed
and confirmed at Major-Ueueral ot Yolu ulcers,
to date from May 1, 1H;2.
In December of the same year commenced the
series of renowned operations, the object of
whicii was v icKsourg. uonerai Grant appointed
Sherman to the command of the 16th Army
Corps, and the latter at once made valuable per
sonal reconnolssances near Tallahatchie river.
Tbe subject of our sketch Is uow a major general
in the lU'gular Army, as well as in the volunteer
tkrsovai, avpearawcr.
Major-Gcneral W. T. Sherman has never had
justice done him by any published photograph.
In the technical phraseology of artists, he does
not "take well." lla is probahly an lii' h less
than six feet iu height, and apparently forty-live
years old. His frame is of good sire, but a mod
erate development of muscle gives him an ap
pearance of being more slender than bo really
Is. His hair and eyes are dark his forehead
high, and so exceedingly fair, that standing as It
does in marked contrast with his hair and eyes,
It is his promlnont feature. His cheeks are
marked with deep linos, while age's crow has
made very palpable track at the corncrof either
eye. A benevolent countenance, together with a
kind und genial manner, makes him look moie
like a minister than the war-dog he is. He was
formerly Colonel of the, 13th Regular Infantry, a
detachment of which Is yet with him as body
guard. The devotion of these men to their old
commander, which Is shown on all occasions, is
not ftn unimportant evidence of his worth
