ARMY OF THE POTOMAC.
Address of Governor Falrchlld at the Bos
Governor Falrchlld, of Wisconsin, delivered the
annual address before the Grand Army of tbe Re
public In Boston yesterday. He suggested that the
society should publish a history of the organization
of the Army of the Potomac, and with that view he
devoted his address to such facts aa had come
under bis view from tbe first call for troops nnttf
tbe army encountered Its first reverse at Ball Run.
The Army of the Potomac, he said, was peculiarly
deMrvlns- of praise, because It had done noblv In
spite of th most discouraging reverses. Its mission !
from the first was to guar a Washington ; and Its de- I
lays, couniermarcnes, ana ueieate, wmcn were tne
result of conflicting counsels, were the subject of
universal criticism. Events crowded npon each
other with such rapidity that the leaders scarcely
knew what line of policy to follow, and many of the
dlsasttts were due to the lingering hope of peace.
General Scott had been making preparations for de
ft nse. Colonel George 11. Thomas (afterwards Ma
joi General) was placed in command of George
t wn); Captain Slilras (afterwards Commissary.
Oeneial) In charge of the Treasury building;
Captain Charles P. Stone (then colonel of militia)
guarded the President's house; ftajor McDowell
(art r wards Major-General) had command of Capi
tol Hill from the railroad depot to the Navy Yard
Commissary supplies were stored In and around
tbe General Post uillce ; a body of troops was sta
ttoned at th Patent ufllce. In the basement of the
Treasury building were strange deposits of whole
tiers of barrels of beans, pork, beer, and sacks of
coffee, while Its porticos bristled with cannon. The
Cspitol, under Major McDowell, was rapidly con
verted into a fortress.
On the 17th day of April there were with Major
McDowell Captains McUomb and Woodruff (engl
leer officers), two companies or militia, two hun
dred strong, composed of the stonecutters and other
workmen about the Captto!. Near the Navy Yard
were four other companies, and near the railroad
depot still another, all local militia.
The President's call lor troops waa gladly re
sponded to. On the 18th of April, the anniversary
of Lexington and Concord, the hearts of all loyal
men In Washington were gladdened by the arrival
ol the 6th Massachusetts Kegtment, six hundred and
forty strong, commanded by Colonel Jones. On the
afternoon of the 26th the 7th Kegtment New York
Militia, Colonel Lefferts. reached Washington. They
left New York city on the 18th, and communication
thrjugh Baltimore being Interrupted, went from
Philadelphia by way of Havre de Grace to Annapolis,
where they joined the 6th Kegtment Massachusetts
Volunteers, Colonel Monroe,who were accompanied
by their brigade commander, General Butler. So
far as Washington was concerned, the crisis was
now passed. The way being open, other troops
came forward rUpldly irom all parts of the North,
so that by the first ol May a general feeling of secu
rity prevailed. The speaker then noted the result
of the second ca'l for troops, detailing the events In
regular order until on the 23d of May General Mans
field, commanding the department or Washington,
had under htm rather more than thirty thousand
Tbe Immediate defensive occnpatlon of the south
bank of the tfotomac was determined upon. A force
of about thirteen thousand men was assigned to
this du'y, and on the night of the 83d tbe movement
took place In three columns. These troops took
possession of Arlington Heights. At Long Bridge
crossed at about the same hour a battalion of dis
trict militia, consisting of the National Rides,
Captain Smcad, Zouave company, Captain Poveil
and Constitutional Guards, Captain Digges; and
later the 7th, 12th, and 23th New York Volunteers,
nnder command of Major-General Sanford ; and the
Sd, 3d, and 4th New Jersey Volunteers, under Brigadier-Genera!
llunvcn. Tne 7th New York was posted
at Hughes' tavern, ner the Virginia end of the
bridge; the 2 New Jersey half a mile farther on
at Roach's Spring. Tbe 12th and 85th New York,
and tbe 8d and 4th New Jersey, and one company of
cavalry moved to tbe right, np tbe river, and J jlned
the troops, who had crossed above, at Arlington
Heights The 1st Michigan, Colo lei Wilcox, a de
tachment of United states cavalry, nnder Major
Stoneman, and a section of Sherman's battery,
under Lieutenant Ransom, marched by way of
Long Bridge to Alexandria. The 'ire Zouaves,
commanded by Colonel Ellsworth, went thltber at
tbe same time by water. The whole ol Sherman's
battery crossed during the night, and Hlcketts' bat
tery marched over about noon on the 84th. Thus
quietly was taken the first step Into hostile territory.
From this the speaker proceeded to give an ac
count of tbe high hopes entertained for this army
by the people of the North, which hastened the
movements In Jnly which resulted so disastrously.

Charleston. May 13. In the Tax-navers' Con

on the financial condition of the State. The grand
total of the debt is fixed at $$,869,103 ; the sum total
of unsold bonds Is $1,800,000.
The report recommends that tne Governor do not
sell any more bonds at less than 80 per cent., and to
proceed to New York to make the most economical
arrangement for holding the above-mentioned
$1,800,000 pledged as collateral, nntll 80 per cent.

The report says that it is quite reasonable to ex
pect, from this exhibition of the exact condition of
tne nuances oi tne state, an immediate considera
ble advance and facilities for holding them oir the
market. It appears to the committee that the
various issues and sums of bonds described have
unquFStionanie legality ana force as obligations of
the State. The committee believe that retrench.
ment may be effected, and that It is the shortest
aveDue of escape from onr financial difficulties.
Less than $6t)0,i 00 in gold will nav the Interest on
