oubt, from the character of our Generals, that the most strenuous exertions will be made to reorganize our forces and to restore our affairs. That these exertions will be successful, there is every reason to hope. The whole State of Mississippi is on foot. Guerrillas swarm from one end of it to the other, and they will never let the war die out. Defeat will but stimulate exertion, for submission were worse than death. It will not be thought of for a moment. We may, therefore, regard this blow as a mere postponement of the liberation of Mississippi. We cannot close this article without warning the public against hasty judgments. Gen. Van-Dorn has been unsuccessful on this occasion; but we know nothing, or next to nothing, of the circumstances.

Let us not make another Sydney Johnston blunder.
