GERMANY AND THE DUCHIES.

DAILY ISSUE. TUESDAY, 14TII FEBRUARY, 18G OF THE news by the mail, incomparably the most important is the daring1 march of Sher man from Atlanta to the sea coast of Georgia.1 Enterprises as bold have already been under taken since the war began, but not one of the many wonderful doings of this most extraordinary war can for one moment be compared with this last movement of Sher man's, in the two great qualities of boldness and magnitude. For, be it remembered that the army under the command of Sherman numbers at least 50,000 men, comprises all arms, and is composed of undoubtedly the finest soldiers in the service of the Federal Government. Contrasted with the movement of Buch a body as this, the raid of Grierson with a body of Federal cavalry, from Tennessee through Mississippi and Louisiana to New Orleans-that of Morgan, with a couple of thousand men, through the States north of the Ohio,-and of General Stuart round the Federal army lying before Jciichmond, in June, i862-are but a...
