Letter from Gen. Ewell," giving his
Reasons for Deserting the Old
A gentleman of St. Paul, (says the
Ploner,) who was formerly a non-com?
missioned officer in General (then
Captain) Ewell's company of the regu?
lar, army wrote u friendly letter to his
old commander, a few weeks ugo, and
has received the following reply, which
he has permitted us to publish on ac?
count of the explanation it affords of
the motive and inducements which led
(.General Ewell to embrace the seces?
sion cause. The letter is as follows:
'POUT WAYXE, N. H., June 13, ISU?.
DEAK Sut: 1 was highly gratified at
the reception of yours of the 30th ult.
Eon", experience has niven me very
different views in regard to the respon?
sibilities-of an officer from those with
. which J. left West Point, where a few
, mathematical formulas, never used af?
terwards, and abstruee branches of
. - science were dwelt upon, to the utter
exclusion of the duties and responsi?
bilities that were to occupy our li\Vs.
' * It is therefore highly gratifying that i
have the testimony of one companion
in arms that 1 made some friends
among the soldiers-a portion of hu?
manity where the treatment of the
best is measured often by what the
worst deserve, and whom it is easier
to govern by the harshest rules than
to take the trouble to discriminate be?
tween good arni hud and to make the
profession easier when possible.
After the time of which you write
my health suffered terribly for years,
not much to the improvement of my
temper, and I remember with regret
much harsh language and conduct to?
wards men who showed themselves
better able to control themselves than
I could control myself. However, I
. .always tried to be just in the long run,
and while, the discipline and good be?
havior of my company was notorious.
1 hope I may say no man was made
worse by service with me, and many
of the boys discharged from ray com?
pany became valuable and industrious
citizens. I never heard of jone turn?
ing out badly during many years in
Kew Mexico, and I learned that kind?
ness gives a far more perfect control
over the human its well as the brutt
? races than harshness and cruelty.
That you may have al little as pos
sible to bc ashamed of serving wit!
me, I will give you a short account o:
how I came into the Southern cause.
I came from Arizona, sick, in th?
spring of 1861, staid in the country
in Virginia, my State, trying to ge
well, and found the war, to my bitte:
regret, .was being started. All tin
highest United States army officer
were resigning, except Gen. Scott
and he published a letter that th?
United Slates would divide, into fou
parts, thus showing that he though
all was over. A United States sem*to
said he would march ?i?Northern reg?
ment to help the South for every on
sent against her. Nothing was don
with either of these men, or with other
whose deeds were treasonable,
member of Congress, from Californio
made a public speech culling upon th
S*mth to resist the. . election of Ml
y|Now 1 found myself forced to figli
against my brothers and all my neuj
cst and dearest relatives-against m
own ??tai.:;, when many abler mon fcha
myself contended slit; was right. E
taking up the side, of tho South I foi
feited a handsome position, fine pa
and the earnings of twenty years har
service. AU the pay I drew in four
years in the South was not as much as
one year's pay in the old army. Thc
greatest political favoritism against
me I ever had was from Mr. Davis j
after the Mexican war.
It is hard to ?.00011111 for my course,
except from a painful sens?; of my duty j
-I say painful, because few were |
more devoted to the cid country than ;
myself; and thc greatest objection I
had to it was my pr?dilection for a
strong one. Now I see persons wdio
did what they could to bring about the
war in high favor in the North, hold?
ing high office. It waa like ?loath to
En route here from New Mexico, in
1861, 1 volunteered my services to
fight the Texans, threatening a United j
States post, and was carotid to do
nothing against the. United States be?
I have asked? to be allowed to taite j
the oath of allegiance ami return to 1
my duties as a citizen. I see, though,
that many persons, active in the first
steps in bringing this war about, are
at liberty, while I am here with no?
very good prospect of getting out;
wdiile my wife is tinder arrest in St.
Louis, and has been since April, but
up to this time has utterly failed even
to find why she is arrested. Neitfer
slie nor myself have the slightest idea
of the ?taus?' of her arrest.
I have given you a l<mg letter alunit
myself because of the friendly tone of
your letter, and because I feel natu?
rally drawn toward those with whom I
have served! 1 remain, very respect?
fully, Ac., It. S. EWELL.
Th? New Orleans" True Delta says it
has been positively ascertained what
j was the fate of the specie .sent away
by the New Orleans banks at the time
I the cit ' was captured by the ?iilon
forres. Immediately upon the surren
! der<>f the Confederate armies, a com
! mission was sent by the hardes into the
I Confederacy to look after, and, if pos?
sible, to secure this money. Tele?
graphic advices have been received
from them which do not leave room to
doubt that the money^vas used by the
rebel authorities prior and at the time
of the grand collapse. It has also
been pretty clearly ascertained that
. lanjrcsums of this money were?appr<)
priated by some high Confederate ?lig
nitaries for their own personal benefit.
There wore about $4,500,000 of this
specie in all, and its loss will prove ti
serious blow to the banks.
