The Removal of McClellan and Appointment of Burn
side—Their Addresses to the Army—" Wait" no
longer. the Waichword—Oripples for the Army—
Correspondence of the Tsunami.]
Ire CAMP MBAR New BALIZIMORE, VA.,
November 12, 1862.
Late on Friday evening last, in the midst of
a driving snow storm, the entire army being
bivouacked in this beautiful Virginia valley,
came orders from the President to Gen. McClel
lan relieving him of his command of the old
army of the Potomac, and the appointment of
Gen. Burnside. It came sudden, though not
unexpected, for as the army lay sking in the
sunshine of autumn, near the battle-fields of
Maryland, and day followed day' of listless in
activity, while the rebel horde with impunity
ravished the fertile fields of our own proud
Commonwealth, a change was absolutely neces;
sary, in some department or other. Whether
the hero and idol of this army, McClellan, was
at fault, we shall not question. Suffice it to say ,
that those in authority have seen proper to dis
place him, by the selection of another. What
he will accomplish remains to be seen.
Upon the arrival of the order Gen. McClellan
immediately gathered his staff and made pre
parations for his departure, and on Saturday,
afternoon took a- formal leave of them, while'
on Monday he bade farewell to the army of
the Potomac. We shall not describe the .
scene—the thundering cheers and wild hoz- .
zas of the men as their leader rode through.
their ranks. All felt that in losing him, the.
head of the army was taken away; and this too
while an advance was skirmishing with the foe,
and its heavy cannonading mingled with the
parting salutes of the chief. McClellan was
deeply affected, and when he shook hands with
the officers he never spoke, but the expression
on his countenance told how full hie heart was
—too deep for utterance. There is no conceal
ing the fact that the entire army were with
him—loved him—nay, idolized him—and this
manifestation of feeling was nowise feigned.
What the result will be upoa the prestige of
the grand army of the Potomac remains to be
seen; but we are not of the opinion that it will
be lost, and that the men will not fight under
any other leader. This is perfectly ridiculous.
If this were really so, the sooner the entire
army were disbanded the better for the succors,
of our country's cerise and the crushing out of
the rebellion. This is a stigma upon their fair
fame, their gallantry and bravery. It is true
that they sung only this refrain:
"M'Clellan'sour leader, he's gallant and strong,
For God and our country we're marching
Yet the leader is sunk in the great cause en
trusted to their care: He done what others
have failed to do, but that is not saying others
are unable to perform the duty. We have had
the most implicit faith in the generalship of Mc
McClellan7hut this go-ahead age of ours, and the
prospect of foreign interference, render a more
vigorous prosecution of the war imperative.
McClellan is not wanting in all the essentials of
a careful and discreet general, but he is too
firmly fixed in any programme which his mili
tary convictions have planned, that will allow
of no suggestions, and this to say the least of
it, is always unwise and at the present time im
politic. Whether his plans for the winter cam
paign were such as did not agree with the
President's, lam not aware, but this I know,
that there was nothing in prospect for the sea
son,except winter quarters, and the "signs of
the times" foretold this.
The following is "little Mac's" farewell ad
dress. It is characteristic of the man :
EIRADQUARTRRB ARMY OF DU POTOMAC,
CAMP mut EXOTORTOWN, VA., Nov. 7, 1862.
"Olylcers and 6Q...tilers of the Army of the Potomac
An order of the President devolves upon
Major General Burnside the command of this
In parting from you I cannot express the
love and gratitude . I bear to you. As an army
you have, grown up under my care. In you I
have never found doubt or coldness. The bat
tles you have fought under my command will
proudly live in.our nation's history. The glory
you have achieved, our mutual perils and fa
tigues, the graves of our comrades fallen in
battle and by disease, the broken forms of
those whose wounds and sickness have disabled,
the strongest associations which can exist
among men, unite us still by an indiaioluble
tie. We shall ever be comrades in supporting
the Constitution of our country and the na
tionality of its people. Geo. B. McCraitzea,
Major General U. 8. A.
Brief though it is, it does honor to his head
and heart. He takes matter's philosophically,
but I fear that politicians at t bome will attempt
in their baseness to make capital out of his
removal. If the army quietly submits to hie
displacement, which will ,eventually prove to
be a wise policy, what business have the petti
fogging, stay-at-home mischief makers to say
a word? The men are devotedly attached to
McClellan, but if the transition will bring
more vigorous war measures and a speedy set
tlement of the rebellion, they are satisfied.
No doubt you have all sorts of, rumors of
disaffection in the army, manufactured in the
noddles of sensation writers, but any one
passinillthrough our lines to-day would scarcely
know that their old leader had gone. Gem.
Burnside has always commanded respect, and
as his fortunes have been principally cast with
the Army of the Potomac,
he comes not as a
stranger among them. His selection Is a
wiser one than that of Pope. Upon assum
ing command, the General issued the follow
HRADQUARTRILS ARMY OF TUB POTOMAC,
Warmness, Nov. 9, 1862.
GENERAL ORDER NO 1.
In accordance with General Orders No. 172,
issued by the President of the United States, I
hereby assume command of the Army of the
Patriotism and the exercise of my every
energy in the direction of the army, aided by
the full and hearty co-operation of its officers
and men, will, I hope, under the blessing of
God, insure success.
Having been a sharer of the privations, and
a witness of the bravery of the old Army of
the Potomac in the Maryland campaign, and
fully identified with them in in their feeling of
respect and esteem for Gen. McClellan, enter
tained through a long and most friendly asso
ciation with him, I feel that it is 'not as a
stranger that I assume their command.
, To the 9th corps, so long and intimately a:
sociated with me I need say nothing your
listories are identical. ' - •
With diffidence for myself, but with a proud
W. P. HPNRY
a it t t
confidence in the unswerving loyalty and, de
termination of the-gallant army now entrusted
to rey care, I accept its' control with the
ereadtast assurance that .the just cause must
prevail. A. E. BURNSIDE,
mai. Gen. Commanding.
Gen. Burnside knew as well as any other
mau of the high esteem in which the army
held. McClellan, and for some time previous
refused to assume the command. At last,
however, he yielded to the Itersuasions of the
latter, and to day IS the leader of the grandest
army ever organized. What -the programme
of operations will be ie not known, bat- he is
now at Washington, whither he was ordered to
report his plan of the campaign for approval,
which plan will be a vigorous and decisive one.
Be watchful, for if we mistake not, there
will be many a splendid page of history
made before the ides of January. Let the
people be patienV—although we have hopes
that wary is no longer the watchword.
The army is now reposing among the hills
of the old Dominion anxiously awaiting the
return of their commander. With his policy,
the cry will thenceforth be "ortursun."
Who are the examining surgeons at limb
burg Whoever they maybe, one thing is
evident, they have no knowledge of the science
they profess, or they would surely not have
sent hither recruits—some over age, tome with
chronic affections, broken down men who will
only meet in filling up the hospitals, and help
to rob Uncle Sam's pockets. It is a shame I
We knowof men who have been sent here to fill
up the old regiments who have not, been
sure to do one day's duty. Such men en
listed for the bounty and anticipate pensions.
In a regiment we know of fully one-fourth of
the number of new recruits are fit subjects for
discharge. The reeponsibility of this rests
somewhere, and we can only trace it to the ex
amining surgeons at Harrisburg. We know the
anxiety to recruit, yet that doer not palliate
the throwing into the ranks of the army men
who are physically disabled. Should we march
through the streets of the north the crowds
daily gathered at the surgeon's call of these
new recruits, , you would be astonished. Never
were such a lot of crippled forma together. This
was, we must say, prior to Surgeon General
Sings appointment. Our old node has
enough to teed at his crib without bringing the
blind, the halt and the maimed. Two men
whom we know were initiates of a county alms
house—bat they enlisted for the hundred dol
lars bounty, more money, perchance, than they
ever had at one time in their lives. Now this,
to say the least, is scandalous; but had they
been examined as directed by the regulations,
they would never -have reached the army.
As we before remarked, the army is now
basking among the hills of northern Virginia,
which me crowned with all the glory of
autumnal splendor. The country around is
rich and fertile, but war has desolated many
plantations:* During the past season very little
farming has been done, only sufficient for do
mestic supply, for as , the planters say, so uncer
tain has been the state of affairs, that either
one or the other of the contending parties have
anti do take possession iof all forage. Stich 'is
the case here. Hay and corn,wherever found,
are seized by our forces. Tis will save con
siderable transportation, which is a vast item
in suoh an army 113 this. We found, in riding
;out through the country, as a general thing,
etrong secession feeling, yet in several cues a

rent I have no doubt that if the jurisdiction
of the federal government is secured to them,
an increased Union feeling will be the result,

The vast majority of slaves in this and the

you may, there is a strong desire for liberty by
these poor unfortunates, and more than one
importuned us to take them along. The free
negroes who remain are in a starving condition.
Seeing a crippled old dame, who reminded me
of Barnum's Joyce Heath, s tanding by the-road
side at the entrance to a ravine, up which led a
a well trodden , foothpath, we inquired where
she was living. "Me be not libin, masa ; only
breathing 'twixt de earth and de sky." We
have no doubt she told the truth. When this
rebellion closes there will be a question tanta
mount to all others—" What will we do with
the negroes?" To discuss this now Is not only
unwise but useless.
The rebels, we understand, have retreated to
within reinforcing distance of Bichniond. This
was anticipated. It is there they will make a
stand—for there they have , strong entrench
ments behind which they fight, and that despe
rately. It is true, our advance meets with some
resistance, but this is due from 'their cavalry,
which recently has made some bola dashes. On
one or two occasions our witgon trains have
