THE RICHMOND WHIG
A ILEA FOR TOE SOLDIER.
To Mu. Jxsr Dam, Mu. L. T. Wiomll, ixo Mu
T. K. Want:
Were the war, In which on* country is tow so fiercely
engaged, oue of glory or of conquest timply ; where the
blaxj and brightnrai of .gold and silver tinsel flashed
merely to attract the eye, and where men In oombat meat,
only to display a skill made chiralrous by the rule* of
fashion; yon might be permitted to repose iu that privacy
which so befits your sex and which is so delightful to an
American woman.
But the case is cot so. A powerful nation—one cele
brated for the grandiur of Its pretensions, morally, phjs
icully and socially, in its relations with tbe communities
of Christendom, is now struggling in the throes of t
mighty convulsion; and which, as it reels and trembler
by tbo violence of its own long pent up fires, is cantaxg
tbe remoter Powers of earth to shake and shulder for
the oous: quences which the future can alone unfold.
While a prospect so momrntoos is brought to oar view,
while ciusrquencos so stupendous are submitted for our
contemplation, appealing to nj all for such tamest cot
■Ucratiou, I do uot forger, lidies, that with uethe court,
i he camp, the pnlpit and the forum have hitherto been
forbid ien p'acra to that clsss of s iciety to which you be
long, and that yenr capacities hare by conventional usa-e
been assigned to an humbler sphere. But I do not fail
to rear* ruber, that, in the history Of people precedirg ns,
iu limes cf extraordinary political and revolution*'v
crises, women have aj ptared upon tbe stage of re ion
who have proven ihen.a<lres equal to ll e occasions that
surrounded them, and I u70 left names Interwoven with
tVi eveuloof their lion-a. Nay, men so deeply skilled in
tie intrcate worktops of d'plunacy acd matters of po.
lilscrl legerdemain as a Talleyrand or a Riche i :u—mlndi
con prehersive and cncon puaing as that of Napoleon
have not bcsha’.rd to call them Into counsel, and to pay
tribute to their talents and captc'.ies. The era of Eng
lish history a few cento: ioa back is replete with tbe fsme
of great women, who have left shining names behind
them to teach mankind that, though kings have left mou
uusects of wisdom (and of folly) fa their wake, mingled
among them we may now and then behold an alabaster
dome erected to the virtue, greatness and glory < f queens,
who were not so by heritage. The names of a Madame
R‘. lurd or a Neckcr, or De 8tael, or Charlotte L'orday,
end many others in Europe, will readily be brought to
ycur minds, in ibis connection, while the pages of our
own revolutionary history are not altogether vcid of to
table achievements p»rtormed by ycur sex.
These con.-ideratlone, ladies, added to the fact, that 1
had in the public piiuts your name# connected with vol
uutccrs from my owu State, on the inicreeiing occasion
of their depulure from Richmond to the theatre of war—
aditd to the f. c‘. that tto I’.e-ideot of cur youthful but
beloved Cobfi d racy, burdened with the cares of cflL-e,
and annoyed at all limes by exactions upon hia patience, I
to fay nothing of physic d rflictiors and fatigues—has
seemed to jusii'y mo in addressing a few obseivuiouv,
crude though they may be, and taking this method of
making then) public, upon matters touching the welfare
of the Confederacy; with tbs hope that your names will
at least cell attention to them, and that if thought of mo
ment, your intljcnoA, and that of all Southern women
who have an irtlucnce at our “SatesRigbta Court,’>
may be exerted to tho reform of such abuses aa are re
fer! ed to, If indeed they exist.
From a high pleer in one great Government, the pre
sent Executive of the Coufderate Slates has been called
to preside over the destinies of another, and a new sue.
1 stop not now to enlarge upon, or to allude even to the
esuses fuperiudueiug th's change. It is so. and where
on,yesterday he could stand in tbo Capitol of the United
Siatee—and I; oking upon ti e nicha once filled by Wash
ington, ra'so Ms voice trumpet toogued for Freedom and
Equality—he dare not now gc, but H proclaimed a Jitbel,
and threatened with atrailoi’s doom.
We, however, recognise in tills anathematised rebel
and traitor our “Executive and civil Ruler.” He has
been pi iced where he La iu sympathy with the Inst lues
and d urea of the petp'.e, who will kerp him there unii1
tbo tale of his country Hhsll be written. He has given
to hi < adherents and to the world proofs of his capacity
and flttCfB chaliengirg universal admiralifa. No body
finds fault; his nraiscs are upon every tongue; his ene
mies, bitter, fieic', vindictive, disbon’st as they are, do
not gsinssy the ability with which they have to oontend
in his person.
Bui his Army ! Never has merit! man reviswed roeh
an army of troops as he can look npoe, when the morn
ing Sun causes the hill tops to blush. Xerxes, nor Oyroe
Uinn.bii, ror Wclpio, i.a?*4r, norrcrcpey, Nep^oon, tor !

ulOn and i Itves.cOtili no'; nor dors the history of armirs
fitrtlvh any thing like a parallel to the frrcee of this
Confederacy compared in tbe eoeb of moral and Inte
lectual worth.
I apeak rot in the Itngnage of hyperbole: an exam!
nation will substantiate tbo estertion witLont pursuing
the idea further. Oar men are brave; they are virlu
cue; they are patriotic; they are invincible. They
hare entered the service, and crone in'o the rnnke, from
pi ces proud as auy fcudil linon ever boasted : opulent
and proud fathers aud sous of tin Reputl c—who could
staid upon a tnouud by *he “ Father of waters,” and
looking over po-seasons which the eye cannot span, say,
“ I Bra monarch of all I survey," whoso fatted cattle ,
Heck tho thousand bills, aud whose boudsmen dot ;
the distant fields, yon find aa privates in tbe ranks. Toe 1
Intellect and talent of tho country, the Bonob and Btr,
tin Church and College, the laboratory and the Pros*,
are here represented. Scorning offioe or place, seeking
no reward, careless of loesra, mindful of obligation* to
loved one* around the domestic hearth.it la true —bn
stifling tho calls of affection and lova in a sterner feeling
and more heroic sentiment—you find them in the ranks,
wiling to dn for Jtferton Davie and lb* South.
Snob is the picture before us; where will you find its
parallel!
But, beautiful a* all this appeirs, let us proceed fur
ther A struotu-e, however, symmetrical aod polished it
may seem, however adorned and garnished without, is
no! perfect unless there be harmony and Judicioo* me
chanism in all it« parts; un!e» its timbera from vault to
dome are sonud; unleae Ita foundation pill tea are fitted
firmly and supportiogiy together.
Are there no flaw* in our edifine? Are I1 ere no weak
column*? No apartment* left uefiniahed? No chant*
bore filled with rubbish left neglected to offend both
,i*bt and amvil, and by aid by to spread malaria and
disease throughout the household ?
I fear me muob, if itqoest be made, (hat it will be
found, there are in oertaiu department* of tbe Govern
ment much that Is unclean, much that is e’.rrnpt, much
deserving cf cecsur:, much to be feared. I have alluded
to the Executive branch of tbe Government and to the
soldiery. I most also add that the Congress of tbe Na
tion, aud the Jucioiary, have fully met the expectations
of the peop’e. Oar Judge* are honset, end imbued with
a spirit suited to tbe time*. Our Representative* are In
spired with a patriotic aod unselfish seal, aud have set
to work earneedy in laying the structure of our poU in]
fabric up an principles o! justice tad wiee political
economy.
But does this same purity of purpose, loyajty and
seal, for the com* of which wo have aptkoa, exist in
I «
the “ yoirle: m isler" and “ Subsistence” Departments < f
lbs Any ? Are those wbo ere ergtged in ibe duties cf
trsnsporiicg your troop*, of buying tad manufacturing
your supplies, clothing, feeding and paying your nullu
soldier*—are they too governed by (be same high sense
of duty to couniry which it has been my pleasure to
commend » I fear not; indeed, in many casrs I assert
positively that they are not.
While bavlcg groat veneration for tbe Prese, I do not
take it for granted that every tblug I see in the pepers
‘a literally true, bnt its character needs no vindication at
my handa. You find accounts almta: every morning, or
allutione made at least, to the ravegee of tbe " Army
Worm” Tbeee innendoes are irjunoua. If the stati
ments made are not true, tboee who pabiiah them, al
though they may oonoeal names, ere guilty of a Ubel on
ths Government, and should be punished. If they ers
true, theu ought.inquiry to be made, and those who are
defrauding the Ooverument to be brought to justice.
I have ssen it stated that tbe Government had to pay
for the transportation of stores, munitions of war, l.\,
to Pensacola, ou the advance of our army thither, as
/night, ninth/ ptr tint, oo the value of the goods so
transported; and I am informed that many similar casts
can be named in which tbe Government bee been thus
swindled. I see it stated that the diffsrent bureaus are
teeieged by e horde of cormorants disconnect'd with tbo
service, who, as soon at it is known that certain trtklra
are in demand for the use of the Government, monrp>
lizs tbo market and then make the Government pay
double or treble price. This is singular, if true; for it
would ssem to me that tlioce who are in the aervice of
tbe Government, possessed of its secrete, and bicked by
its favor and patronage, would have decidedly tbe advan
tage of ell outside’* in any matter of speculation; and
that if they were zealous in behalf of the Government,
as if doing business for themselves, no such treneactioie
would be chronicled.
Connivance on ths part of cffij’al* ha* been hinted.
Those wbo connive at crime are as I;gaily gnilly as the
principal, and, morally considered, are more infamous,
for they shield their cowardice beneath the spaciousness
of an official rebs, while their confederate* take all the
risk of detection. I do not in on any of the things I
have mentioned to exist; 1 merely give yon matUie
of public conversation, newspaper cummeut, and camp
gossip. My opportunities do not afford me tbe means of
knowing very extensively tbe operation* going oo,
which is s source of regret, for if pmseeaed of facte it
would bs a labor of love with me to expose them. But
one instance oi rawtiuj uu Iiueu uuuli my vuamt*

Yon may Lave seen an account of tbe arrival in Rich
mond of two regiments of Texans, and of tbeir seven
march of one hundred and forty-live miles through the
alligator swampi of Louisiana. Toe Commanding Oene
ral of the Texas division entered into contract with ooo
J. T. Ward to tramport these troo(s from the Sabina
liver to New Ibetia, over laid. At what price I do cot
know, nor do I know whe her bond was given by the
said Ward for the performance of his contract; but as
to the manner in which it wav performed, I, in common
with (ha whole command, unfortunately do kuow too
well. Tbe two regiments wore divided into detach,
meets of five companies each, having Texas at inter
vals of two and three days, for the accommodation of
the contractor. The orders from headquarters weiu
peremptory that we should be hastened to Richmond
with all despatch. Arriving on the LouMana border
the first detachment found »mn wagons there, famish
ed by Ward, to convey (be troops and their subsist
ence, clothing for six months, (they bad not been fur
nished with knapsacks,) hospital stores, company bag
gie, and sick. Tbe constquecce wat that they were
compelled to abandon Urge quantities cf valiub's equip
ment* furnished them by tbo people of Texas, and leav
ing their sick behind, to start upon tbeir march. They
h-.d to resort to tbe bard and tuple*.*ant duty of
tm/irssrm'nf to get wagons for their sick. Tbiir teams
giving out daily (he further they penetrated the inhoeplt
all) country, as a matter cf necessity they bad to be
si pptied, however severe the hardship to the poor settler
who chanced to have a yoko of cattle or a wagon.—
Impressment was our dtrnier resort, ard was justified by
our condition, but it fell pirtfculstly herd upon the *
loyal citixaus of that pm of Louisiana who arc mostlv . .
poor people, engaged in the lumber and stuck raising
businrsa, and who were illy prepared fo rentier ns any fa
vor, however wiling they might have been. Msnr of
them will doubtless present accounts to our (lorrtnmect
for liquidation, whereas It is presumed that the mag
nanimous and pitiloilc contractor aforesaid has long
sine* received hi* money in the *hxpe or good Coe 1.1

I bare learned that If r. Ward has eirce been rewarded
with a commission as Lieutenant Colonel of oue of the
Tiiaa regiments engaged in the Coast defence.
