HOW IOWA SOLDIERS MARCH- The letter we publish in this issue from our regular
correspondent in this issue from our regular correspondent in the Second Iowa
Cavalry, will be found well worth perusal as "Diff's" letters always are,
especially interesting as narrating how Iowa soldiers march and work. In
thirty-one days, Col. Hatch's command marched "twelve hundred and twenty-six
miles"; being an average of 41 and one-eighth per day. This marching, too, was
but a small part of the labor performed, as the facts related by our
correspondent abundantly testify. Col. Hatch has taught the rebels that Morgan
and Stewart are not the only officers that can make a "raid." Not a few
in the Union army have received promotion to Brigadier Generalships without
performing a tithe of the duty done by Col. Hatch. A commander of such energy
should not be overlooked or forgotten.---Davenport Gazette.
