E. LEE, General.
The' only,othcr order issued in this valley
relating to the conduct of the rebel' army,
Was issued in- the-form of an address tb the
citizens of York; to impress . the iie6ple of
that ancient village of the subliinated Mag
nanimity of the rebel commander.'", was
as follows :
To 'run CITIR.MIB OR YOBS.: I.have ab
stained from burning the. railroad buildings
and car shops in your town, because; after
examination, I am satisfied the safety of the
town would be endangered; and, acting in
the spirit of humanity; whicb has ever char
acterized my Government and its military
authorities, I. do not' desire to involve the
innocent in the same 'Punishment with the
guilty. Had I applied the ' torch N'ittiosit ,
regard to - consevences, I would have- pur
sued a course thal'would have been vindi
cated as an 'act, of just retalitition' for the
many - authoriied acts' of barbarity perpe
trated by your "own army upon our soil.' But
we do not war upon 'Women and' 'children,
and I trust:the treatment you have Met with
at the hands of my soldiers will 'open your
eyes to the monstrous; iniquity of the war,
waged by your G-overntnent uportlthe people
of the Confederate Ettaos, and that you Will

J. A. EARLY,I'Maj.-Gen. C. 8. A:.
The discipline of the rebel army was admi
rable: ; No' private, or, subaltern dared to (*-
regard an order in, presence of his superior,'
or where his superior officer was lik'elytolle
advised of it, When the rebel"colurnn4 filed
through ohiirribersburg, they marched with!
the utmost order and decorum, and l a ughing,
talking loudly or singing was not indulged
in. .Tlast tlifs'wee' the residt'of the strictest
discipline' rather than an indication of 'the
,good breeding of- the infantry rank and, file,
is evident' from the fact that whenever, a
Iquad Could get isolated from:their officers or,
commanders, they would. roh Mercilessly; end .
commit all manner of outrages. When rebel
officer's: , behave badly, they do not . dismiss;
"thern;•but reduce:them to the rank's, as in
