Tie Size or giscrtssan's Army.
We are inclined to think that we, the
people, have nothing like a correct idea as
to the size of Sherman's ar;:y at present.
It is undoubtedly larger than is supposed.
From accounts we have lately seen, it u
certainly more formidable in numbers than
?o had any idea it was, and we ate certain
ly j;Iad to know it.
From the best information wo can get,
wc presumo it is the iargest army eer
mustered on the American Coutiueut, if
not th ; largest of modern times in any
country. The St. Louis Union says intel
igence has reached that cky that the 17ih
Army Corps, under Gen. Frank Blnir, has
recently joined Sherman near Ackworth,
Ga , aud that Sherman's Army is now the
largest on the continent.
We also saw a private letter to-day,
written by a gentleman in Sherman's ar
my, (dated the 14th) to his brother in this
city, whii'h is to the same effect, as to the
size of the army. He thinks it the largest
army in the world (as it doubtless is) and
though he rates the army under Johns'on
in'Georgia aT about SO 000, he thinks if
the rebels knew the size of the army under
Sherman, they would abandon all idea of
further resistance and would submit at
once, or throw down their armB and go

as a perfectly square work of sand partly
plated with railroad irou, roofed and case

enemy has mounted guns in a peculiar
manner. Holes somewhat resembling
rifle-pits, though of course larger, have
been dug, guns mounted therein to some
depths in the earth, and posts set in the
soil of the blufis in their front Of course
these guns have not much range up and
down the river. The armament of Fort
Dtriing consists of heavy rifled ordnaDce.

Spcecli of Andy Johnson at Knox
, ville 'iean.
We think the following extract from
Gov. Johnson's speech to his fellow citi
zens at Knoxville,TeDn., some time since
will be read with new interest, now that
his name is presented to the people as a
candidate for the office of Vice President.
Tor glowingatriotism and tbiilimg elo
quence, it is rarely equaled.
The time has arrived when treason must
be made odious; when traitors must le
puabbed impoverished ; their property
taken from them, whether it be their hors
es, their lands or their negros, and given
to the innocent, the honest, the loyal, upon
whom the calamities of this unprovoked
and wicked rebellion have fallen with such
crushing weight. t is easy to stand here
and declaim, but I am not declaiming. It
is ea-y to utter mere bombast, but I am not
uttering bombast. You kuow me. You
know something of what I have done for
you tor Tenntssee fur East Tennessee.
But I will not speak of that. If I have
-made sacrifices, it 1 have endured suffer
ings, if I have undergone hardships, so let
ii be. God grant thai I may have helped
you, and that I may help you again. But
you must help yourselves. You must join
hands with me and wnh one another, and
swear to do what I have already toll you
must be done to make treason odious,

fcufferedJ as your wives aud chilureti have
suffered, as your country has surTeied.

Let me austrer in one word let me speak
it so loud that the denfest man in all this
inu.titude may hear me Slavery. (Hun
dt eds of voices : " 1 hat's so, that's God's
truth.") Men talk about the Constitution
and Su e rights. Tney sneer at the Eman
cipation Produmation, and call it a tyran
ieul usurpation of autnority, a despotic
usurpation of power. Listen to what 1
now say; all Buch talk is the language of
treason. Bt I am not here to discus-s the
constitutionality of slavery, or the consti
tutionality of she President's Proclamation
of Freedom. I am here to present facts;
to addrepsyour i'.telleus; to appeal to
your coinmuu sense. Here is one lact to
which I want you to attend. Why is thu
soil of our be.oved Tennessee a soil as
rich as ai y in the world so far behind
theS'ates oi the North in iis productive
ness ? - Why have you butTew uch f.rms,
but few such granaries as th' have a If
over Indiana and Ohio and Pennsylvania ?
Here i3 the explanation, and let me speak
it so loud that the deafest man in this
multitude can hear me Slavery ! Thank
God, the people are beginiug to see that
slave: y has impoverished the soil of Ten
nessee about long enough. Cries of
"Good, good that's so!"
Men sneer atthe decttiue of emancipa
tion. Let them sneer, but this I tell you
mark me i is the white man we pro
pose to emancipate; it is the white man
that is evn now being nmancipaied ; and
may Heaven hasten the work of emanci

things to-day in Knoxville ! that 1 can say
them and be applauded! Thank God for
tree speech and free pres?, and the pros

break erery yoke, loose every shackle,
open every prison door and let every
bondman, white and black go free 1 Loud
Sometimes the clouds appear dark and
lowering sometimes I confess to a feel
ing of gloom ; but when I remember that
there is a God, I am encouraged. Tnough
not as religious as oubt to be, I some
times walk by faith, and I have fouud it a
convenient way of walking when it is too
dark to see. And on the whole though
our suffering has been great, our blessed
ness will be all t'ae greater when the day
of our triumph shall come !

I have climbed yonder mountains that
you have climbed yonder mountains,
rock-ribbed and glowing in the sunshine
in whose -.orges, in whose caverns, your
sons, hunted like wild beasts, have fallen
to rise co more. I do not speak of these
things to draw your tears.t It is not a time
for tears but blows. I speak of them that
I may fire your hearts with holy indigna
tion, and nerve your arms for unconquer
able fight. And I speak of them because
the mountains seejtn to talk to me. My
..home is-among the mountains, and thoagh
it is not far away, I cannot go to it. It
is the place where I met her, and loved
her, and married her who is the mother of
my children. Do I not love she mountains
then ? And if liberty is to expire, if free
dom is to be destroyed, if my country, in
all its length and breadth is to tremble
beneath the oppressor's tread, let the flag,
the dear old flag, the last flac, be planted
on yon rock1 heights; and upon it let
there be this inscription : "Here is the
end of all that is dear to the heart and
sacred to the memory of man."
But I mut not go on in this strain.
Why is it that there l? so much that is
mournful in the conternplaiion of this

Some of the most interesting passages
in Garibaldi's life relate to bis wife. He
married a lady of extraordinary qualities,
a native of one of the States of Sou h
America. Sue was trained to horseman

prevail among the females of those coun

affectionate and disinterested, she also
possessed similar degrees of personal cour
age and fortitude which have seldom been
displyed, and still more rarely depicted,
b' any autheutic pen. After her marriage,
she accompanied him in his battles, by
sea and land ; and though Usually unarm
ed, and keeping at his side only as his
companion, she sometimes aided in his
most despera'e conflicts, by dealing pow
der, loading guns and even firing them
at the enemy. The suff-rings which she
endured among the mountains, in times
of adversity and seasons of tempests, werp
severe and almost incredible. The short
