To the Editor of the New York Y

the ground that the burning of Coluig

I believe that General Sherman is
fully responsible for the crime of de- *
stroying Columbia, and I ask leave to e
stateo one3 good reason for my belief. If
I appeal unto C.asar, Cesai, at least, ii
ought not to eomnplain. There are is
several points inl this o3e reason of d
1. On page 287 of volume , of the 8
Supplemental Report of the Joint "
Committee on the Conduct of the War, *
published ofeially by the Uited W
States governnent, are these words in
a dispatch dated December 18, 1864. 9
from Ma,jor General 11. W. Jialleek,
in Washington, to General Sherman,i
then in Savannahi "Should you cap
ture Charleston I hope (hat by some
accident the place may be destroyed;
and if Little salt sould be sown upon
its site it may prevent the growth of
fliture crops of nullification and scces
slon." Is not the meaning of this per
2. General Sherman wrote, in reply
to the despatch above quoted, under
date of December 24. 1864-see the
"Supplemental Report," page 291
these words: "I will bear bin mind
your hint as to Charlestou, and don't
think 'salt' will be necessary. When
I move the Fifteenth corps 'will be on
the right of the right wing, and their
position * will bring them natuirally
into Char leston first; and If you have cc
watched the history of that corps you b
will have remarkedl that thev, general

truth Is the whole army is burifing
with an Insatiable desire to wreak S1
vengeance.upon South Carolina. I
almost tremble at her fiate, but feel that
she deserves all that seens in store for M
her. * * * I look upon ColumbIa
as quite as bad as Charleston." Is not
the meanblIg of this also perfectly 1

lng above .dates General Sherman with

Fifteentth corps was oi :the right of the
right wing of the army and entered
Columbia first, and the work of pillage,
debauchery and arson was done up
pretty well, and the General who was I

she .deseraved all that was in store for gi
4. Here I .have shown by Genueral ..
Sherman's owvn testinony that he
wished to wreak vengeance on Colum
hia; that lie assured General Hialleck,
his superior officer., that .he would so
wreak vengeance on CJolumbia or
Charleston or .anyt]ing South Caro- a
linian, givlig in advance his plan for
so doing, withot4. the-manliness of a N,
positive military order to burn ; arid
that his movement into Columbia was si
carrying out his announnced plani of
wvreaking vengeance-a plan which he
knew (and had so stated) wouid de- T'
stroy the city.
That isxmi first reason for believing
that General Sherman iR responsible
for the destruct~on of-Cobunbila. It is
the first hut by no means thie strongest
of my reasons for this 'belief. c

FEARFUL RALRtOAD DIsASTER IW
Msxaoo.-A sp)ecial diapatch from the
City of Mexico says tbe accidenit at r
Malipais -loses nione of its horror
through receip~t of fuller and more ac
curate advices. For some time past
the district where it occurred has beenI
swep~t by fierce storms., swelling creeks
into torrents, laying wvaste many fer
tile fields. T'he bridge spanning thie A
river at the p)oint mienuioned, although
known to be unsafe., was still in use
when the fated traini bearing a battal
ion of soldiers attempted Its passage. -
The result was a crash as the under
mined supports gave way and the en
gine and cars were hurled headlong
down the chasm. Scarcely had the
magnitude of thme disaster become ap
parent When a newv horror was added.
Ini the freight cars comprisinig a por1- ]
tion of thme train was a consignment of
alcohol. And a consequent explosion
contributed much to t he loss of life.
The fewv who escaped uninjured at
once applIed themseJves to the resce
of their unfortunate comrades, but it
was some hours before the extent of
the dlisaster' became apparenit. It is
now knowni that 13 officers and 196
prlvates were either killed outright by
the fal or' roasted to death,- while 6'0 )
others sustainett hurts of a mtore or
serious character. The traini was en
tirely consumned. Whenm information
of thme appalling calamaity reached this
