The Enquirer jay?: "Napoleon never permit
ted any oue of the officers who participated ir
the capitulation of Baylen to rerve nuder him.
and even tba Austrians condemned Mack to death
for the surrender of Ulm ; and yi t neither ot
theso surrenders was more disgraceful than tunny
Cf ours, whieh hare not called eran for an ctbcu?!
This indiscriminate denunciation of Confed
?rale officers is badly in keeping with the charac
ter of a dignified, high-toned press ; it is injuriom
to the canso whieh it professes to maintain ; sad
above all, it is eontrary to the truth of history.
" Neither of these surrenders, says the Enquirer,
was more disgraceful than many of ours." Wi
should have been glad if the inquirir bad thoughi
the character of our officers of sufficient impor
tance to discriminate and point ?.Ut- ?hieb Vf ('Ul
surrenders wa? ai disgraceful as Baylen or Ulm
But since lt deals in generalities, wo will take Usu?
with it upon that statement, and wo deny tha
any one surrender of our army wai as disgraoo
ful os that of Baylen. We exclude from ?bi
discussion the surrender of Cumberland Gap b;
Gen. Prarie;, al the *ect* hare not yet bo*n mad*
public. Wo Accept the other ten eusesegivon, nm
we undertake to show that non? of thom was a
disgr.-.eefnl as tho aorroudcr of Gon. Dupont a
Baylen ; and for this r.pinion Wo appeal to a sim
pie statement of facts.
When Dupont surrendered to Casta?os at Bay
len, more than eighteen thousand French soldier
-who for fit teen years, bad been tbe terror c
Europe-laid down their arms be foro a raw artuj
incapable of resisting balf that pumber led b,
tn able man. Th* entire Spanish anny und?
Keding, and tb* only oorps eng.igod with Du pun
oom'-sted of only twenty ih..u.-?i.d uudiscipline
troops-taw militia-including a multitude t
peasant. Tbe two armies were equal in point c
number. Dupont commnnded tho veteram c
Napoloon ; Reding commanded raw troop?, moi
-.f whim had. never, been under fire, Ai_d jc
after a weak nnd cowardly defence, Dupont ?uj
renderod, ai prissnors of war, IS,600 of Nupol?
ou's veterans. Again, Dupont's own officci
ch urged him with havit g surrendered to save tb
iuim-nse plunder bo had stolen und nos Ukiu
out of Spain. Hcie isaFrenrh General guilt
b?tb of cowardice apd treason ; nrjd yet thu E
nnirer tells us that this turrunJcr vas not mor
Jirgraciful (han u,ar.y of ours. Will the fiitONi

A on lo M crea uuder circumstances us du?racefv

G-nen! publicly charged with cowardice au
ti o?f on ? Lit us have bi? name. If the Euqui
rer knowua any iuch < ase, we trope il will pubiiti
il to the world. Justice icquirca that such char
gil should be specific. Thc character ol Cooled
erato officers is of too tench TA.nc, both to th
Country and to li.ouueli cs, io he ?.ported wiib ii
this loose and reckless manner.
1' is a hard faio ttiat r>r*ve men fighting in do
fence of their country, should bc held up to scon
and derision, because, hy the chances of war the,
have b'cn torced to surrender to the enemy. Tb
statement made hy tho Enquirer could be war
rantvd ouly np-II tbe finding ol' a Court Martial
nod not upon loose newspaper rumors. The En
a mirer owe? it to itsclt as well as to tbe publis
to make Kood i! is grave charge agaiust Cooled
Again : The Enquirer rpenk3 contemp'uouslj
of the defence ut Vicksburg and Port Hudson
and wishes to know where are our Snrago.aa une
(jerona; Such language does not ?ousd weil ii
a Cuufedrrate newspaper; it does not fall pitas
antly, we are eure, upon the ear of a maa *ib<
lins .S'oai/ieni Hood iu his veins. When ibo siegt
of Saragossa is properly understood, we are no:
q lite sure that the famed city of the Ebro d .-survei
any mire glory ih-n cities upon tho Mississippi
Saragossa and Vick, burg wore bath besieged, anil
they both surrendered. Marshal Lannes I ?siegee
Saragossa with an army uf thirty-five thousand
men : tho garrison consisted ot titty thousand
Spauiards. Gen. Grant had aa army of srventy
thou.und, While tho garrison of Vicksburg con
sisted of less than thirty thousand. The delenc?
of Vicksburg then .iras much store difficult than
that et Saragossa ; and as they beth surrendered
what was tho different e? !? will be said that.th?
defence vf the latter was mure obsiiuate and more
glorious. Ibat thura wai a greater saurifioe of
life in ibo Spanish town thau iu tba Confederate,
is a matter of history; but that the Spanish sol
dier displayed m ?re fortitude ur courage than the
Confederate, wa utterly dcuy. Nu'une familiar
with the Peninsular war, will horiuie lo aUaiit
to ?I ttio CuUloderato aol ill cr is tupe rio r lo the
Spanish, indeed the Spanish army is admitted
tu be the Wurst iu Europe, lt mny be replied that
this ccusure was.not intended for our notifiers,
but for ?ur officeis. Wo are equally rea'iy lor
that issue. . lien. Pemhortou II no favorite of
ours, but we will do him, or any other unfortun
ate man, justice, and we aro willing to eompa.a
him with Palafox the hero of Saragossa. " Pala
fox, nays Napier, was ody the nominal chief of
Saragossa ; ibo laurels gathered in both seigei
should adorn plebeian brows-For more than a
month preceding the surrender, bo never came
ferih ef a vaulted building which vat imperviom
to theil*, and in which, there is too much reason to
believe, be, and others of both sexes, lived in a
I state of sensuality, forming a disgusting contrast
I to the wretchodrese that surrounded them." We
j believe thiit tien. Peinbcrlon hos no cause to
.brink fr.in a comparison wi h (his hero of Siira
gossa. If there were more lives lost at Saragtssg*
than at Vicksburg, it was because tho former Was
less scicntificirlly defended. And Dually, Vick?,
burg did not surrender to the superior prowess of
the enemy, hot b? fho imperious demands of
famine. If Gen. Pcm borton had bad tho adran,
tages belonging to Pulafox, it is quite certain that
Vick-burg would never baro fallen. What! a
garrison of fifty thousand Confederate soldiers
surrender to a Yankee army of thirty-fire thou,
saud ? Tb? idea is simply preposterous. And
yet wo ure told that to Saragossa belsngi the gio* <
rr, to Vitk'nurtf tbe tharne. Fuch it the justice
of human judgment; s'ioh the Yaluc nf hun.cn
fj-mc. . \
But the nw t oxtrtu rdicnryi iiofonstit o' the
E-ou'i-er is thc following: " The V.i t r.v rf t?i?*

Thus tho Enquirer bas evidently miniated tho
truth nf his'ory in aaaerfing that tho Confederate
flag baa noun oftener disgTnersl in tho sanio lepptb
of timo than that of any other nation. Further,
it will bo obacrvod that tho Spanish towna whioh
surrendered wore not insignificant outposts, as
waa the crae wit? many of oura, without tutti-?em
means of defence, garriaoned with raw militia,
and without the possibility ef being reinforced,
but many of thom were walled towns, and Bom?,
the strongest Fortrei?es. in Europe.
We regard the character. of tho Confederate
Ariny as embodying and representing the charac
ter of our country; and as conductor of apu'-lic
journal, we should regard ourselves derelict to
our du.y if we ?utfered'the comments of tho En
quirer upon that Army to peats without notice.

Producers and l'rolr.onions.
Mi?. EMTOH : One ?.f tho most reinarkaHe ni
tho peculiarities developed by tho present war is
the moral mania at pr?sent prevailing among thc
peuple, that every uiie is, in his own o: inion, doing
right, bul bis uciahbor ia doing wr.ng. 'iLis
mauia is exhibiud in tao transaetiuna between
thu Producer aud tho Professions, or to ex tu nd
tbe idsa, between the producer ana tbe consumer.
The producer claims thu right, und invariably
exercises it, of churning as much ns ho pleases
for the prouuets ol' bis labor, but denies to the
Pr?festiunni mau, whu unit, a skill with labor, or
to tue con.-u mer generally, tho exercise of the

yet objects that professional men ?ball raise their

applier? to all tho necessaries of lifo. Now there
ia one thing vory certain, that a man's brains are
far more valuable than the products of the earth,
fur Ibo earlh'a products are annually renewed, but
the waste ? f tho brain is beyond redemption.
Skill added to labor renders labor morts ?aluable
by thc uddiliuu, and oousequeutly entitles lt to
higher consideration and reward. The producer
raises the prices of his products iu the existing
conditi-n of affairs, from tho deranged elate of

tain fixed measure. This mcu.-ure by Nw i? gold

and blessing for cursing-. Han? great, then,
mu<t. he that crime ou which the Almighty
has fixed this seal of reprobation, and bow
preitlv wicked ts that mau whom God points
out li?r tb? people to curse 1
What, then, is thia crime? Withholding
com or food-that is, refusing to nell it, and
hoarding it for a greater price.
Why ie this so great a crime, and its per
petrator so great a criminal ? Did he uot
make the Corn in his own field, or buy it with
his own uiwuey? Lia* be uot ta right to d<?
with his own as b&please* ? ls be not en
titled to the market price? And if that is not
high etiouK? now, has not he a tight to wait
lill il gets higher?
The nays ol' men are not God's ways, un i
God s thoughts are not metis th .ugh s, ile
gave the rain and the sunsnioe to make the
corn grow that there might bo fund for all
even for thc poor, aud u the poor shall neyer
cesse wilt of the laud." And white you are
withholding your corn foi the pr^ce tn rai?e,
some pi-or man, or sick woman, or helpless
child, will starve ; aud you will he the* mur
derer! ll you had -waylaid un enemy and
tstabljod him to the heart, all men would hi-.Te
cried out at your crime. Hut is your guilt any
less whfmy.'u mm a-ide from tho groan ni
the hungry tr? gloat over your pilo ot corn,
calculating bow long it will bo beiurethe price
is high enough to satinty your rapucity 1 NOT
is the clim? any les? because the .'riminals
me mul.?plied. A thousand may cumbine lu
withhold corn before starvation is the rcbult,
yet ?6 each one of tho thousand a murderer I
Nor can you plead in c-xtentiaMon of your
...uilt that you did roi intend to s'n-Vf* him ;
j you ?li v intniidi-d to raiser th?: w ice alni mis

Let us analyze thc ch .racier of him who,
in times ol distress, withhold*, corn.
1. it is obvious that be is deM.it ute of ben
evidence, for be is indifferent to distress, it
be cano- ly make money.
2. Bat it is c.ear that heis even malevolent,
for he wishee. tbs price of bis com to be Ligh

3. He ba* the spirit of exton ion. fur he is
trying lo muke incuey out of the pn*r and
Hungry, thc uk and sfarviug. ll thu tunes
are hard, he winht s them to become harder
still, that be may make yet mon: money. If
the screws ar? tight, ha wishes to give them
another turn that he may twist out a greater
4. In the present circumstance.* be is co
operating with th?* public enemy ?for the ene
my is irvine to starve us, and so is tho with
j lioloer ofcnrii. And the enemy is <*o opera
j ting with liim hy destroying all the prevision
i within Liair-ttcb, thus making cord still dearer.
?. Such a mau may be prominent in the
j Gltutcb; bul in'tend of a Christian, be is a
heathen. For he who not only makes rooney

7. Fitfully, he is the counterpart of tIve nn
j'uu jn?!ge, for he neither fears (?od nor re
