Why Gon. Johnston dncs not Fi?ht. T have notioed amongst thn various corres pondents of the press, a considerable amvunt of pendexity in accounting for the failure of . - . . "i . .-i . r Gen. Johnston to giv! Dattie at Vy.is o.auon after his faaicu3 bate of the 13th of M y. I have seen amongst other accoimts, that of the army correspondent of the Auguta Constitu tionalist, positively asserting that General Join stoti had 'received ordera from the Wnr Departmental Richmond," forbidding him to risk any general engagement vtil reihh rce roents might b spot to him from the a my of Virginia. The explanation is incorrect. The true reason for the retreat of tbft army from Cass Station afier Johnston's battle ord-r had ben rcjtd to the triKips, was a fdlare upon tha part of Ids corps C"mmsndtr3 to comply wi b Johnston's plan uf batile. Gen. John ston Laving determined upon hi line of bat tle, notified his troops that he was uow ready and about to bad -them to victory. Rvery heart pulsated with p miotic ferver in rospons to the call of the tried and trusted chieftain. Jjp Johnston hal deliberately chosen bis time and his position the word had been given and the deed mil -t b: done. Accordingly Gen. Johnston rd red his corps ctnmnib L-rs to advance their ct.mmands and occupy xertain c.csignatMi positions. All was progresung adpiirabiy for tha happy coRSummatioa of this splendid conception when st-ff oflb-er, charging up to one of Johnston's dt.-tinstii.-di d Lieuteuout-GeneralK made the atartlbuj an nonncemrnl lint the enemy, were on his tlai.U in large and tLrcit' ning numbers. Piaci-',; implicit c iniidenc v in tiie -nnouuoenjeat of a staff officer, the Lieutenant General, fearing to move, failed t comply w'ith liie orders f his commanding Geber.d. In the manwhih?, the advancinjj colm.i of tha tiemy gaintl ths 'position arl Johnston's plan was frus trated. Thre wns no alternative now left hiinbut to fight tl.o nnemy at a disadvantage, or to rc-trs.it to a safe position. To have rushed madly inter the former, Gen. Johnstoa is a man of too much deliberation and evm tempered wi.h m to have feared to .do the latter, all the anthemas o an ignorant pub lic could not prevail. C-or.
