In the Henry J. Raymond's kew vol:
ume, "A History of President Lincoln's Ad
ministrationoccurs the following hitherto un
published letter of Mr. Lincoln to Gen. Mc
FORTRESS Montoi t May 9, 1862. -
-- My DEAR SIR: I have just assisted,the Sec
retary of War in forming the part of a dispatch
to you, relating to army corps. which dispatch,
of course, will have reached you long before
this will. I wish to say a few words to you
_privately on this: subject. I ordered the army
corps organization not only on the, unanimous
opinion of the twelve generals of division, but
tits() on the unanimous opinion of every military
man I could get an opinion from, and every
modern military book, yourself only excepted..
Of course I did not on my own judgment pre
tend- to understand the subject. I now think it
indispensable for you to know liony - our 'strug
gle against it is received in quarters which we
cannot entirely disregard. It is looked upon
as merely an effort to pamper one or two pets,
and to persecute and degrade their supposed ri
vals. I have had no word from Stunter,-Heint
zelman or Keyes. The commanders of these
cor s are, of course, the three highest officers
wi, on, but lam constantly told that you
, no - consultation or communication with
them; that you consult and communicate with
nobody but Fitz John Porter and perhaps Gen.
Franklin, I do not say these complaints are
true or just; but at all events it is proper you
should know of their existence , . Do the coin-,
manders of the corps disobey your orders in any
When you relieved Gen. Hamilton of his
command the other day, you thereby lost the
confidence of. at least one of your hest friends
In the Senate. And here let me say, not as up:
plicable to ,you personally, that Senators and
Representatives speak of me in their places as
they please without question; arid that officers
of the army must cease addressing insulting
letters to them for -taking ho greater liberty
With Ahem. But to' return, are you strong
enough, even with my help, to setyour foot upon
the neck of Sumner, Heintzelman, and Keyes,
all at once? This is a practical and very serious
questiotr for you.
The -following letters from Gen. M'Clellan
and his father in-law and chief of staff, a bitter
Copperhead, of course, are well worth Copying:
WASHINGTON. August 20, 1.861.
Sir: I have just received the enclosed des
patch in cypher. Col. Marcy knows ,what he
says, and is of the coolest judgment. I recom
mend that the Secretary of War ascertain at once
by telegram how thn. enrollment proceeds in
dew York an& elsewhere, and that if it is not
proceeding with great rapidity drafts ho made
at once. -We must -have men without delay:
Respectfully your obedient servant,
GEORGE B. M'CLELLAN,
° Major General-U. S. A.
DESPATCH FROM COL. R. I➢. .11..AE.CY TO GEN.
NNW YORK, Aligust 20, 1861.
I urge upon yOn to make a positive and uncon
ditional demand for an immediate draft of the
additional troops you require. Men will not
volunteer now, and drafting is the only success
ful plan. The people will applaud such a course,
rely upon it. I will be in Washington to-mor
row. R. B. MARCY.
AN INGENIOUS ART.—The shot from
Armstrong rifled guns is made of cast iron, each
being coated with a blind of soft metal, to make
it fit the bore. This is not put on by • pouring
molten soft metal into a mould direct upon the
cast iron shot, but by a process of galvanizing
and dipping. The first shot made of this kind
had bands of soft metal upon them ; -but these
were found defective, the bands flying off when
the shot were discharged. ' According to the
new and improved mode, which is now general
ly practiced, cast-iron shotis turned into a lathe
to a required gauge, then heated in an oven,near
ly to the temperature Of molten zinc, dipped in
to a solution of sal-ammoniac,: and transferred
to a, bath of fused zinc`: Thula galvanizedaur
face—ti coat of zinc—is secured. From' the
molt nn zinc vessel the shot is immediately trans ,
ferred to a bath of molten soft metal, consisting
of lead and a very small quantity of tin. This.
soft metallic alloy adheres perfectly to the zinck
ed surface, but will not hold to the iron directly.
It will also adhere to the zinc surface, whether
the Ishot is dipped in the molten metal or the
later east upon the shot in a suitable 'Mould.

COAL ASITES.—Are coal ashes good as fertili
zers' If so, on what Soil and with what eropa?
We regard' them as well worth saving and
using, we should not apply them directly to
land except in large quantity.. They will_be
found most valuable to use in - composts hs
absorbents. We know of one or two'instances
in which they have been applied directly to
moss-liound meadows with good results. We
do not know hf any crop to which We should
apply — them direct, unless on grass lands. And
even then we question whether the greatest and
best results would not be derived from them by
composfing with stable manure. We have seen
reports of good effects where applied as a top
dressing to corn; We can' not doubt that it
would he.betterso. to apply them than to_throw
tliem away, as Some do.: Let those who have
experience give the results ,of the sari:ie.—Ohio

Nothing that is not wholesome, genial andrestOrA•i
ative in its nature enters into the composition.o
HOSTETTER'S STOMACH BITTERS. This po,
ular preparation contains no mineral - of any Eat,:
no deadly botanical element, no very excitant, but
is a - combination of the extraccs of rare .balliturtic
herbs and plants with the purest and mildest of
didusive stimulants. „
It is well to be forearmed against disease, and;s9
far as the human systeni can be protected yliuman
means, against maladies em,endered by an unwholei
some atmosphere, impurewater, and other - ctternal
causes, HOSTETTER'S BITTERS may be relied
on as a safeguard.
In districts infected; with FEVER AND AGUE

resistible as a. remedy; anti thousands who resort'
to it under apprehension of

use of HOSTETTER'S BITTERS. -
The weak stomach is rapidly iiiiigorated and the
appetite restored by this agreeable Tonle, and hence
it works menders in cases of Dyspepsia and
lees confirmed fortis of INDIGESTION. Acting
as a gentle and painless aperient, as well as'uPon
the liver, it also invariably relieves the CONSTIPA
TION superinduced by irregular action of the di
gestive and secretive organs.
Persons of feeble habit, liable to NERVOUS AT—
TACK'S, -LOWNESS,OF SPIRITS, and FITS' OF;
LANGUOR, find prusinpt and perm anent relief from'
the Bitters. The te'stimony on thiS point is• raoSt
