What the service urgently require* is, t the best brigadiers obtainable. i ftine-tentls of the company and regimental officers who behaved so shockingly at Bull Run obtained thflr several commands upon the principle of having succeeded in inducing their men to enter the service; and nine-tenths of the officers of the for-the w.-r regiments who have resigned since the battle, obtained their positions precisely ' on the same principle. If it be prudent to clothe a man with the responsibilities of a Brigadier General*h!p because he has raised many men for the service, it Is but Just to select our Major Generals on the ground that they have raised more men than most of the applicants for brigadieri ship* basing their " claims" on snch a plea And, if one aspirant can be found who has raised vastly more men for the war than any other aspirant for command, of course he is entitled, by parity of reasoning, to demand that Major Gen. McClellan shall stand aside and permit him?the most successful raiser of volunteers?to be commandt r-ini chief of the department of the Potomac. ?? vui uu**.ci?, grnn as well &S SCO All, 8f4 i to be made on such principles, all our battle* may i b? expected to be Bull-run affairs 1 imm DOWN EIVER.
