Editor Telegraph :—lt in now a
stubborn fact beyond all disputation
that our lives, our liberties and our
property, and, moresacred than these,
the salvation of our wives and chib
4ren, our altars ami firesides, must de
pend for security on the strung arms
and stout hearts of our common sol
diers. Whilst many of our officers
have tarnished their uniforms by low
debaucheries, it is admitted, with one
harmonious voice, that the privates
have sustained and redeemed the pu

The wives, mothers, daughters and
sisters of our soldiers demand a more

than mere idle wind for the lives, the
broken limbs und diseased and man

When these protectors are left un
known and unfriended on the field, to
banquet worms, or drag out a miser
able, crippled, diseased existence, the
mere whistling of their names (if
ever they should ascend to the digni

for their poverty and wretchedness.

individual charities, more talked of
than experienced by many of the mod
est and needy of necessitous females.
This fire in the rear is more deadly to
the energies of the soldier than the
Hashing in front of millions of the
enemy’s guns. The officer may well
be content, for his pay and brief au
thority is a full recompense for all of
his responsibility and military school
ing. The lawyer should be paid for
the time and money he has expended
in the mastery of Ins profession. Tin

ministrations to diseased minds and
bodies. The sculptor's most prized
fee is not found in h manual labor,
but in the sublime faculties which
enable him to transform, by I, is chisel,
the rough, sliupelcse marble into the *
image of a hero or god ; but why the I
officer should receive his hundred* i
and the soldier only iiis tons, is a !
mystery, except, on the supposition
(which, wc think, is lar fetched) that
all officers trace their pedigree in a
lineal Hue from Minerva, who is said
to have leaped a! no hound from
the head of dove, lolly armed and
equipped —"as the lam directs .” If
wc open our eyes and cars we cannot
he otherwise Ilian satisfied that this
cannot be a fact—for if we compare
the officer and private, we find that in
looks and iu speech, in miad and in
body, in skill and in education, and in
all that gives man a re titled suprema

system of election i practiced—a
system, by which the few, of more
brass than brains, impose themselves
on the many, by secret combinations
and tics ol u uuinerou. relationship,
at the expense of friendless, modest
merit and public wrong. If every
General or Colonel had been -horn
such, or prepared himself for years
by a regular military pupilage to
command, then the duty of obedience
would be pleasant to the private, and
the military title would not be so of
ten associated with ignorance, tyran
ny and scorn. As it is, each man
now feels that he is every inch a
hero—that he is a born Ciesar, and
can lead many squado ns in the field,
although he knows that he can neith
er read, write or speak his mother
tongue like a Christian and gentle
man. It is this acknowledged equal
ity of the essential elements of worth
and talent, and the ficticious inequal
ity of title and pay between the officer
and private, which will, without a
change, continue to be the fruitful
mother of dissatisfaction, disorder
and desertion. Congress should ap
ply the remedy at once. Unlike the
mercenaries of the North, who fight
for pay and plunder, our privates arc
among the best of our professional
and industrial classes. Many of
them have voluntarily abandoned
ease, wealth and homo and freely
sacrificed their all of worldly sub
stance. Congress surely cannot
permit such men longer to live on
eleven dollars a month, (which can
not now be done by the practice of
the mast miserly economy) while
their wives and children at home are
exposed to base extortioners and
greedy swindlers, whose God is gold,
and whose cars are deaf to every
sound save the clink of dollars coined
from sighs and tears of absent sol
▼iers, disconsolate widows and rag
