It is interesting to look upon the
'statistics compiled by the Depart
ment of War bearing upon the civil
wtr, and there is something very
striking in the great odds thus dis
■ played against which the South bad
to battle. Following is a statement
of the number of soldiers sent by
each State to the Federal army :
Diet. Colombia, 16,872
From this table it is seen that
total of 2,659 550 white soldiers were
in the Federal army, coming from
every State in the Union except four,
Georgia, South Carolina Florida,
and Virginia. Besides these white
soldiers there were 3,540 Indians and
93,441 negroes, making a grand total
of 2,756,441, so that the South con
tended against at least four or five
to one. Even the seceded States
furnished more tories to the Union
army, excepting the four named,than
the same States had furnished sol
diers tothe Revolution of our fore
A correspondent to |the Banner
calls our attention to the striking
faqfc in this connection that New
York and Pennsylvania alone sent to
the army more soldiers than the
Sonth, namely 833,154. The same is
true of Blinds, Indiana and Ohio,
they having sent out 770,953, mak
ing 1,604,107, furnished by these five

correspondent, “that with five to one
