HAIL TIIM ARMT OF THE POTOMAC
This Is the grett qnestlon before the country,
If, Indeed, thst can be called a qnestlon, which,
so fsr as us advocates aro concerned, has bnt
one side. There was a time wtfen we shonld
haTe had no hesitation In taking the popnlar
" side of this question) bnt that time has passed,
and the clrcumstsnces which would hare In
fluenced ondeclston no longer.exlst.
'While It Is probable that such a movement,
under the right military auspices, would hare
been crowned with success, still, we are now
satlsled that, under the circumstances, It Is not
a safe more, and, therefore, not a wise one.
This majr be easily determlned'by a trite mili
tary maxim of universal application. It wll)
be (bind In the collection of maxims of Napo
leon, republished In this country under the an.
spices of Lieut. Gen. Scott, and Is from ifonte
euevBe, one of the greatest military authorities
of the age. It Is to this effect, "Thst the clr.
cumstaces under which a battle Is to be avoided,'
ordecllnea,-w, when there Is greater danger to
be apprehended from defeat than advantages io
be derived from victory."
'Now, let us test the wisdom of this proposed
advance by this maxim. It Is admitted that at
least M.OOO men are, or rather were, necessary
for the defence of Washington when the last
advance was made upon Richmond by the way
of Jig , Peninsula. This force was evidently
considered adeqnato to meet the force likely to
be seni against us with our army menacing
Richmond, for It was deemed tuAelenl, with
the fortifications, to defend this city.
The raid of Jackson and Lee Into Marylsnd,
with the whole army of the Potomac and of
Vlrgtnla In the Immediate vicinity, demon',
straws the fallacy of such an Idea.
This Invasion of the rebels shows that three
times thst number of troops Is required for tho de
fence of Washington, If assailed by the whole
The qnestlon, It appeara to ns, which now
presents Itself la this i Can wo spare, from tho
army of the Potomac a sufficient force for the
defence of Washington, and still have a suffi
cient force to advance upon Richmond t
If the Government and the Union generals can
ssfely answer this question In the affirmative,
then they may aafely offer battle to the rebel
army between this city and Richmond, without
violating the cardinal maxim of war, quoted
above. If they entertain the least doubt upon
the subject, then they more on at their peril, for
while their trinmph over the rebels would go
but a little way towards crushing the rebellion,
their defeat would Inevitably Involve the fall of
Washington, andthq. consequent triumph of
the revolution. Tho ..victorious rebel army
would surely follow back onr routed anddemor.
allied legions, overwhelm the army of the de
fence of Washington; capture It, and with the
supplies and munitions which they would get
here; and lit, pritttge they would this' acquire,
even to the Hudson.
Bnt It msy be suggested, If thts'rcasonlng bo
correct, thst tho army of the Potomac will
never be able to move, as the rebels .will only
have to Increase their forca between this and
Richmond, to perpetually hold us In check All
this may be true, and still the army pf the Po
tomac play an Important part, and even fife
clalvepart, tn'tho contest. The array" qf the
Potomac la properly an army of observation
and defence, comblnedi thai la to say, an army
to defend Washington and menace Richmond,
whenever the rebels reduce their force sufficient.

military maxim to which we hare referred, to
