The day is a very unpropitiohs-looking one
in which to look forward to th glad Saw
Year, lint we are sure the moiitlm that are
in store for us are, a'rewed with blessings as
general and benefl -cnt as any we hvc yet
onjoyed. The progre.-s ol'tha American 1'nion
is liko the advance of an hnmenso multitude
over an tmboiftnled, fertile, and gently ascend
ing siirfaco. Magu int pools and black abysses,
and forests laid waste, m iy m irk the years
that are past darkness anil clouds may be
round about them; but in the days
through which wo urn moving now
are to 1)0 found rich Holds, cxhaustless mines.
Incalculable internal resources, and powers of
invention and the Hpirit of discovery which
shall make the highest use of them all. In the
future there ure lolly and gleaming summits
which wo have to ascend, and an Eden of
peace which wo are t j regain. lint all the
gates through which we aro to re-enter it are
guarded by flaming swords, some of which we.
have Hhivered and dissipated, and all of which
it will be our practical duty to combat
During the past few months we have done so
much in this way that wo have peculiar rea

Tho soK-sutllclent prido of the United
States is a theme which has oftuu been prated
over by foreign journals, and used as a means
of taunt to us. It is to bo acknowledged that
c have a fa'.r degree of pride. We could
not have sustained ourselves in this struggle
without It. We could not hve hoped to
wield the weapons of war aright, or to cope
against the united Interests of foreign powers,
without this confidence In ourselves which
gooH abroad by the name of false pride. We
have that conceit of ourselves, that solf
kuowledge and belief, which are essential
to succoss. T.ike people who understand
their business tuorougly, we are constantly
improving from the very lessons which we are
contlnuu'ly teaching others in the science of
government. Our Government U unlike any
other with which history is acquainted. We
are evidencing to tue world its principles. It
was conceived in a tune of danger and distress,
and it has survived many a shock. Its last
and greatest conflict has been the struggle of
the last lour years. All its strongholds were
invaded and outraged. But they are not
crushed or subverted. They have been in
sulted, but with the serenity of all that is truly
great, they are potent still.
Through the coming year we have to com
plete the work which we have begun. We
have to satisfactorily prove t'.iat we are in tho
right, and that those who framed the Consti
tution conceived one of the grandest Ideas of
human government that has ever been acted
upon. The mighty principle upon which our
government is erected is that its career is to
be coeval with that of the world. Through
all time it is to be a monument of ull that is
!est in all the forms of government that have
existed. It Is to be recognized as tho perfect
pattern of human government from which all
modes of administration are to be modeled.
Tho New Year should bring us another
reflection besides tho one that ws are to cud
the war and vindicate ourselves. We have a
woik to iwrforii) iu the world of literature and
art, and the word "American" is to become
hyuoiiymous with names which yet unborn
generations shall cherish as dearly as the
present one uoes me long-nveu reputations

II is never without reluctance that we np.
proach a ciuc. tion about whic h there is not
ample testimony. At the best, we are all so
111. Me to lie mistaken, that he who presumes io
judge, should nt least avoid obvious causes of
error. Without tills prefatory qiiallileatloii,
we should not cow-idi r our-dves justified In
d'M i:ssing the failure of O f Wilmington epe
u'.ith ii. Wo consider the evidence in t lie case
to lc ro IiisuH'k lent, Hint it would savor of pre
sumption to attempt to render a precise ver
dict. On tho other hand, if the subject be
cnl'rel Ignored, there is d mger of imsnpprc
Mnii iiihirg in tho public inh.d.
The fh.'t thing that strikes us Is Admiral
I' i.im;V' aclini.-. ion that he did not consider
it i (li. nt to await t!,o arrival of General
1 mill. His words are: "After the. sou'
wester, the wind ( hopped around to the wc st
wunl ai d gave us a bcautilul spell of weather
which J could not afford to lose; and the
tran peitjt wiih the troops not making th :ir
a j i an nee, I determined to take advantage
ol it m il attack Fort Fi-her and its outworks.
If Admir.'.I IVktkh was acting in concert
Willi Com ral J'.i TMcn, no attack should have
been inailo without consultation with Conor!
Jil ti.i it. II the chief command belonged to
the Admiral, ho hud the light to do what he
ploiiMdj but if the chief command belonged
to General I'.n i.i.n, the Admiral hud no right
to take the initiative against the enemy. If
the chief command belonged to nrithrr, the
expedition vjas faulty in its very nature.
Dependent upon whether an expeditionary
force consists chiefly of an army or of a navy i
the duel command should devolve upon the
highest cllicer of tli.it service which is to un
dertake the renter task in the proposed scheme
id operatic". To order this otliorwis", may
he fatal io the success of any plan.
In this particular case, no bad consccpience
resulted from the action of Admiral Ici;ti:i:.
If be had squandered his ammunition, so that
upon the arrival of General JH ri.Kit, no
assault could be inacli! under cover of the fire
of the fleet, then, indeed, would the attac k
have proved most premature ami unfortunate.
Hut it seems that upon General Iit;Tl,i:i!'s
arrival, the. flee! was still iu condition to bom
bard the enemy's works, but that General
Bl ti.i it declined to assault them. That no
untoward event resulted from tho early bom
bardment, alforils no satisfactory reply to cen
sure ofa violation of the nriuciiile of con
ceited action, without which any operation
is not only liable but likely to fail.
In regard to the cxnlosiou of the t-re,)r
bout, the unfortunate results that niiuht have
ensued from the action of Admiial roitrm
ure almost too obvious to mniiii l'li c..-
redo boat was exploded before the bombard
ment ot rort lisher. As Ceuofal Buti.kb
hud not arrived when the bombardment took
place, he must have been nhneut at the time
or too explosion. Now, tjin theory favorable
to the success of the torpedo boat (for thorn
were two thories even nmong engineers) was
mai u wouni so demolish the fort that tho
work would he untenable. Is it not. elenr thnt
it behooved the troops to assault immediately
after the explosion. Y'et, if the torpedo boat
had succeeded, tho troops would not have
been presenl, for tho torpedo boat was ex
ploded on the mi rning of the 24th instant, at
loity-uve minutes past one o clock.
Suppose thut the fort had been seriously
damaged, would it not have been somewhat
repaired by the evening of the 24th instant,
when General Uuti.kh arrived? Admiral
Toutku says: ''At sunset, General Bun.mi
came in, In his flag-ship, w ith a few transports,
tne rest not liavin' arrived from Itcnui'i.rt
Would the fort not have been in still better re
pair on the 2,1th lustant.at the time of day when
General iiUTi.im was prepared to land ? Admi
ral Toiiteb says that " the army commenced
landing about two o'clock." So, if the fort
had been seriously injured at forty-five minutes
past 1 o'clock on the morning of, tho 21th
instant, tue ltelxls would have had thirtv-slx
hours and a qunrtor before General Bi'ti.eu'h
forces ever touched tile beach to prepare for
As the torpedo boat did not effect the desired
damage, here again, the action of Aliniral
Poiitek was followed by no bad results; but
If the torpedo bad answered the exneetations
formed, the haste ot the Admiral might have
implicated ttie success of the whole expedi
tion, i nis case atlords still better uroof th.in
tho first, that expeditions requiring concerted
nieasoros should never be entrusted in e.,tn.
manders independent ol each other.
We now turn to tho operations of the tmmu
The accounts which ws possess rslativa to
their performance are not so full as tlim
relative to the other part of the expedition:
Undoubtedly It was expected that the tor
pedo boat would effect so much damage that
the troops would be certain to occupy the posi
tion of Fort Fisher. But the torpedo foiled
Y'et it is plain that its (ailurs was not con
sldemd tantamount to a failure of tlm
expedition. Otherwise, why wet the troons
landed ? But when they were landed and
captured some of the outworks of Fort Fishsr,
una tne skirmisn line, as General Hi n re .
njaiks, was "within fifty yards ot the fort, while
tho garrison were kept in their bomb-proofs by
the tire ol'tho navy, and so closelv that. tbr....
or four men of tho picket line ventured upon
the parapet and through the sally-port," ste.,
why, we ask, was not this time chosen to
assault? These men even carried niTtl.cfl.
and mairiseo as unuardouabls, wsi of course

U'.th Instant, In reply to General Hcti.KiVh of
the Stfiih Instant, professed ills ability to keep
the Uehels in tin ii bomb-proofs, and evidently
des'n d that there should he a renewed attempt
upon Fort Fisher. But his suggestion does
not seem to have elicited a favorable response,
for the attempt upon the fort was not renewed.
We, w ith Admiral Foni ku, do not like to
presume to criticize the accuracy of the delib
erate opinion of Cenerul Wni tzki, that
Fort Fisher could be taken only by a regular
sige; but. If so, how did that handful of
daring men got on the parapet and through
the sally-port ?
Fiom tho testimony thus far, we draw th :
1. That the expedition had no commander-in-chief,
and although It did not fail on that
account, that such a want Is, at any tlrm an I
in any expedition, liable to be followed by
2. That Admiral Pout Kit was precipitate In
- louiiig the torpedo boat and iu att i kin
II. 'lhat under cover of the (Ire from tic
fleet, an assault should have been al.lem1if!i'.
Ail ol which is subject to reconsij r.iiloii iu
the light of fuller testimony, except the first
tatement, which Is a self-evident prop isition.
In conclusion, we must say thut it is out
inipic: simi that the failure of the expedit'ou
mis owing to the storm, whic h cl diye l out
dec t so much that the enemy had timu to se:iii
two divisions of troops from tho lines uViul
l;i( hmoiid. Yet the details of the expedition
exhibit so much absence of concert thai we
have thought proper to call tho attention o1
the people to a defect in ull movements or
ganized between land and naval forces a de

failure of many military operations under
taken bv nations.
