General MeOlellan found himself' called
upon to elect between a retreat iu the face
of an enemy superior in numbers and the
risk of the complete annihilation of tho
finest army of the Uuiou. A more cruel
alternative was never imposed upon a
soldier and a patriot. How bravely was
it met, how wisely decided, our children's
children will road with clearer eyes than
ours, and honor with more liberal hearts
the young general who resolved that aw
ful question with no thought or caro but
for his country had given into his chargo.
When tho dio was cast the report tells ub
that General MoClcllan sent to tho Secre
tary of War a telegram stating his con
victions ''that tho Govornment had not
sustained the army.'' This tolegam Mr,
Stanton, evidently did not think ii well to
submit for inspection to Mr Wade and
his colleagues. Tho country would liko
to see it will no doub; ere long be permit

preciate tho reply." "If you have had a

we pay for the enemy ,not bting in
Washington. We protected Washing
ton and the enemy concenlrutcd on you.
Had we Urippea Washington he would
have been upon before the troops ktsnt
could have got to you "
In those few but moBt pregnant words
lies tho triumphant vindioatian of General
MoClollan's fame. Theso words confess
all that the most impartial students of tho
peninsular campaign have so often and so
often and so earnestly asjerted. "We
protected Washington and tho enemy con
centrated on you." Weeks beforo when
tho campaign uguinst Richmond was cul

great many of them havo been made and
put abroad with assurauoo of being effeo.
Rut they fail to accomplish tho

not the iutrinsio virtues thoy claim. In

does prove to be tho Jong desired remedy.
Its peculiar difl'erenco from othor kindred
preparations in market is that it euros the
coat, ono start, urawcrs, anu ono pair
of stockings. Mounted officers must car
ry everything thoy want on their horses,
and each Rect, of Infantry, is allowed
two pack-mules to carry officer's blankets
All this looks like work, and best of all
will enable us to follow up any advantage
we may gam over the enemy.
