To th Editor of the Plain Dealer:
"I do not write those lines particu
larly for publication ; I simply wish to
exnVers my humble opinion in regard
. to this (called by four-fifths of the
to think they 'would follow tho example
of Indiana, and 'kick up a muss.'
Wo have had a great b tttlc at
Murfrccsboro, and what was the re
sult? Why, wo lost at least 15.000
men and a number of lino batteries;
and al though wo hold tho ground wo
cannot move another rnilo. Tho entire
army of Virginia and Tennessee could
not drive tho rebels from their strong,
holds in the Mountains of Tennessee.
" I wish you could have seen some
of tho charges made by the rebels at
that battle. They (lid not seem to bo
human beings. They fight belter since
the first of January, ami thero are moro
of them since tho appearance of that
thrico damned proclamation of Lin
coin. " This army will soon bo home say
in four months then let thoso dirty
Abolitionis'.s look out. Let that tooth- j
lo-s heavy dicadod dog they call Ben i
Wade open his mouth atul it will go
hard with him. They ca.l h'.m the
Old War Horse." It is a pity that
wc couldn't have bad a few of those
old war horses in this last battle. But
wo don't want thorn they would de
moralize tin army. It was tho work
of such men that caused this immense
army to be raised, and it will be their
doin'rs that will call them home.
" Tho soldiers look to the honest
Democrats of the North to put a stop
t.o this bloody, unholy war. Throw
out the r.igger. and our Union will be
