An English Tribute to Gen.
Under the head ot "American
Literature" in I The S irry 1
r *. we find the fNlowing no
tice of Mr. J. E. Cooke's Le of:
;eneral Lee, in which t1he critic
takes occasion to pay a noWi o
bute to the eharacter of our in1
mortal countrymnan, Ge.A. !obert
The most inLresting work on
our list for this month. beyond ali
connarison. is the life of Gen.
Lee, by Mr. J. E. Cooke. who,
though he assumes no military
title, appears, by internalevidence
and by one or two direct refeoren
ces to his personal presence on
certain occasions, to have been an
officer in the Confederate army of;
North ern r,rginia. and, weshould
fiancy, temporarliy at least, a
nenber of the staff of 1ts revered
cief. The work is im any re
spects deective, espciy fron
to have been ::n. ad
un'"*siste by the Gern i.m
ily, and is consequently alncst
without information as to tho
early life of his hero. Indeed,
probably irom the want of' tate
rial. he has contined his na.rraLve
aIlmost exclusively to the Coifedt
crate War of Independence. pa.ss
ing1 oV(r1 With a slight and Iurso
Iry menition the previous 5ervice
wiebN haid led Gen. Scott to re
conr.e L,ee as in;compj arablyth
abht oflicer in the Fe_deral armv.
a1ndt his own fitting s1c. ssor.
This is a renarkale and un
questionCd feet, and it leads di
rtlv to an inference which ou:gh
to silence the offensive and ver v
ungenerous largua4go in whielli
certain Northern and English
politicia-ns have been vont to
speak of* the "wicked rebellion" of
the South. The leading of.1cers
of the Confederac were the meon
who* ift hey had chosen to remain
in the Fedural service, would have
cominanded the army of the Uniou.
Albert Sidney Johnston was Lee's
immediate senior. and Lee him
self and his comrades of the See
ond.Cavalry were marked as the
picked men of the army. Two of
Lee's subordiiates in that regi
ment were aiong the ablest and
most distmguished of Grant's
Lieutenants, and no one nn
dont that their selors in rank
n equaC s or superiors in ability
ii,ht have at once conimmande'd
tie forces of the Union if t her
had chIiosen to Wo so. Thc termip
ta: ion to adhCre to their;
ons must have been very strong,
yet almost every Southern oI e
threw in his lot with his State.
Only the ffinaticisn of faLction
wvould~ dare to ascribe unworth
motiv"s to any of them-to 1.

no biography of Gen. Le toas
sueis that he was one of lie
best meni and truest Chrithm. n
well as one of the nobiest sulMiers
and g.reatest generals, of whom
histor-y bear-s witness: but it i
impo,rsible to rcad this story of:
his lie without finding our ad
miration of his character deepened
and strengthed. His fellow-citi
zens evidently haid, from the first,I
profounid and entire confidence in
him ; a confidence wvhiich must
have been due as much to the
force of' personal character as to
his long past ser-vices in the Mex
ican war. w hen he-a Captain o
Engi'neers--was one( of the inte
rior military Council of the Com
marnder-in-Chief, and one of those
to u hoim the latter chiefly ascribed
the completeness of the victory.
Hie was not successful in his nrst
operations-a fact which his bio
grapher explains, or explains
away-yet he was as thoroughly
trusted as ever by Virginia, and
was selected by the Confederate
IGove-rent to replace General J.
Johnston in the command of the~
principle army of the South.
From that time his history is
the hiistoryV of the Vi rginia rmyn;
and his personality impresses it
self on' th eO b aracteor of t hat arimy.

I a scene was witnessed at EJngi1'C

)Il)osed that his 'rieod should
mco how well the horses were
trained. First of all, the neat
js stails, three in. number, were
poirited out to the-viitor, in which
h were inn-mificent animals, whose
n- glossy coats and general condition
Sproved that there ib considerable
CrIT bestowed upon them inter
nally as well as externally. Each
has its name inscribed wpon :a neat
sign above its stall. None of the
arimal were fastened, and were
:dl properly harnessed and in triti
or activc servico. Then came
tihe test;going to the signal in
rment, ir. Dale ordered the
!e do.ile doors to be thrown OpenI
to prove that the horses would

#id. which beltnged to the tenl
eder stood in Such a psition that
. lhe shafts could be lowered right
down to the traces; and there the
le animals stood without moving :a
muscle, at a word they each can
tered back into their proper stalls
without being led or driven, ati
with a precisin that does credit
to whoever train-ed them up. The
time taken to "itch up" the ani
mals to the engine and tender (all
I ready to drive out) is only ten
a seconds, and it has been done iii
te eight. So much for the animals,
it and when it is stated that the men
. arc equally welltrained.although to
-11 say it puts them on a evel with the
re ,horses, nevertheless, it does them
no injustice nor attaches any dis
credit to then. Mr. DaL.e has nino
