home absurd porson in Cougress has oSered a resolution to cali a raillion o{ new ïnon into tbo field to put down the rebellion at ono feil blow, and certain equally absurd newspapers are endorsing the foolish raotipo, Surely Ihe country has heard'enuugh' of this ninety day nonscase. Tbo inülion of mon, if It wa feaeible to getttvem all at once into cho field, would not b worth tweniy thousand well-driil'ed veterun soldiers. It would bo disastroua to every üterest in tho country if bo large a prr.portion of our laboring poptííaiioa wassuddenly taken fro.n their wnri nüá roivds consumera instead o( produeeia. The truth is, we havu soldiers enough now lt finish up the rebellion if the admiaistratioa only fcnew how to use them. - Jjet all tho minor onterprises be given p, and givo Generala Grantand Meade each 150,000 men, and upon the opening of spring Leo and Johnston can be beatón, Eichmond and Atlanta uaptured and the war ended shortfy afier by the utter destmution of the military power of the rebcl.s. These ineosant calis íor more men are Rimply signs oi tho Weaknesa and bowilderrnent of tho peoplo in power.
