Every step which they take provet; the enemy to be better prepared than ourselves, and their arms to J be more perfect. "I have already spoken of their artilierv. Each battery is connectcd bv telegraph with others a.nd with the generaf command. The direction of the battle is changed in a moment and there is no disorder or confusion. "We have very little mountain artillery; theirs is brought forward in every battle in large quantities, and they conceal it so well that we cannot find out wb-ere the fire comes from.
