Dear How : Thero eeems to be a persistent
and settled determination, on the part of some
would bo military tenders of the north, to And
fault with every effort, or movement, which
is made by either of the grand armies which
have been concentrated at different points to
quell the great rebellion which has now as
sumed such gigantic proportions and is spread
over such a vast extent of our once happy
country, The prolific tirades which are con
ceived and nourished In their over-fruitful
bin ins, and hurled against our Generals,
would, perhaps, under other circumstances
entitle their authors to consideration. Judg
ing from their tone, the initiated would sup
pose that Napoleon in his palmiest days, was
never possessed of half tho military accumeu
as these self same leadeis, and one is almost
led to believe that they must have some spir
itual premonition of all the movements which
are about to occur, in order to enable them
to criticise upon tho merits of this move or
(hat) und all Ibis from personal observation
taken 8omewhero within tho bounds of Penn
sylvania, This persistency, which at first was
passed by In silence, lias at Ittigth culminated
in the uiiiiiif tiikeablo end jost indignation
which is everywhere manifest throughout this
portion of the anny. unprincipled toon who

tho interests of ibis class of patriot whoso
1 1 aid friends are ever on the alert for an op
portunity lo msUe cftpltal, for thim, out of
the present unfortunate oouditiou of tho coun
try. Such conduct in times like the present,
when our Government is struggling for its
very existence against enemies on all sides,
It is, to say the least treasonable, and soldiers
have long since learned to regard those who
do not give to tho Government theii hearty
cooperation and support as traitors at heart,
and unworthy of confidence. The soldier
who has sacrificed all tho euse and comforts
of home, and has offered his all, oven life
itself, to avenge the insults and indignities
which liavo been heaped upon bis beloved flag,
expects every man, who 1.1 not standing whoiil-
dcr to shoulder with him in the Held, to over
look all the minor considerations of party and
stand by bis country, and to concentrate all
the legitimate means in bis power to the vin
dicatiou of the rights of civil and religious
liberty and the supremacy of the Constitution
and the laws.
The time haa now arrived when every man
in u .it show his baud must stand or fall upon his
own individual merits must either be the
whole-souled friend of the Government or its
deadly foe. Thero has been too much dally
lug with treason in the p;ist-too much ten
derness exercised towards traitors and too
many ofleriugs of aid to the common cause
Willi one nana, wiiiio a ciencned dagger was
held in the other. Dut, it is gratifying to
know that the people hav-- been watching
these moves, and have at Iciicth taken tbo
matter in hand. That man who seeks noui lu
turn aside the current of popular opinl hi from
the legitimate onject of cruolitng out this lu
loultlous rebellion, Is either u fool or a mad
man. Nosnnc man In the north this day, can
doubt thut our c iiiso Is just, or that (hu smiles
of Heaven are not upon our honest eflorts)
and, with this conviction, we hive every right
to expect tho undivided and Impartial tin is

we are outside (he bound of loyal State, the

The following article, from the Chicago

those who have been ready to assail the Pres

Tho covert allegation in a late number of
tho New York Times, that the President has
thus far conducted the war, In opposition to
the advice of bis Generals, and thut the disas
ters id the Virginia campaign were due to
his intermedd ling, is so wholly false that we
wonder how the editor of that journal, who
ought to have been better informed, could
have permitted the charge to have place in
itscolums. The truth is, and we should say
to Mr. Lincoln if lie were here, the crowning
fault of his Administration has been his de

of the men who are too f.ivorbly utlected lu
our enemies, wo can but admire the modesty
und patriotism, winch, lu llus crisis, subordi
nates self lo considerations affecting tho pub
lic weal. We have no instance to show how
this disposition of the Prusi Iiiiit has worked.
When the Peninsular caniiijigu was proposed,
.Mr. LmicoIu was opposed to it, His plan wan
for our army to go ahead in unbroken force
on the line of thu enemy's retreat, and to
hasten to Richmond with such speed as it
might be able lo command. This as the ob
vious dictate of good policy and good souse.
liut the famous strategy of which we have
heard so much, was shaken in his face ; tho
decision of a Council of War was held up be
fore him, and though he all tho while protest
ed that the movement did not command the
approbation uf hisj judgment, bo finally con
sented that it be made, the result the coun
try knows. Once more : When bis patience
win exhausted by the long delay of Gen. Mc
Clellan before Manitisas, lie ordered a forward
movement, not only once but three several
times. That was Lincoln and tho expression
of his military notions. Bm. strategy came
oiicb more into play 5 one excuse after anoth
er was alleged, and at last the command. For
ward March! was recalled, and Richmond is
not taken yet.
We state these things not to assail others,
but to vindicate the President, who is nomi
nally responsible for tho mishaps that have oc
curred, lie, wo believe, is in favor of action,
of earnestness, of celerity. Were he to trust
to his own sound judgment and Cease to be
governed by the advice of men who have thus
guidcl to betray, victory would jo-tch on our
banners. And wo trust that the day is not far
ff In which he will vindicate himself and bo
coinolu reality what ho Is ofliclally, the Com-mandcr-in
Chief of our forces on land and ut

morning has the lollowing tijm authentic
sources among other-interesting items as to
the proceedings ol the rebels :
'We have some inkling of the subject dis
cussed at the conference of all the principal
military leaders, held in Richmond on the 4th
and 5th July. It is understood that they must
lose more territory. The defensive policy
was s'trongly attacked, and both Lee and Beau
regard advised the Invasion of the North at
three points, namely : (nun Cumberland or
Williiimspoi t into Pennsylvania, from Loui.i
villeand Cincinnati into Indiana and Ohio,
and from Paducah and Cairo into Illinois.
It is alleged that the following plan of op
erations forthe remainder of the summer cam
paign was agreed upon.
"First, the Immediate obstruction of the
Jsmos River, so as to make it mpusabld for
McClellan to use it as a means for communica
tion with the Fort, and for their tinnsporla
tion of reinforcements and army supplies.
"Second, the occupation ol Williamsburg,
York (Ow n nl d the entire Peninsula.
Third, the recovery ol the whole territory
of Virginia, and (he suppression of the Balti
more nnd Ohio railroad j for the recovery of
fifew Orleans, Men phis and tho .Mississippi
(Ivor and expulsion of the Federal troops from
Tennessee and Kentucky. When these ob
