If he should bas the confident expectation of the rebels — if Lee had taken Washington or Baltimore, Stephens woud captured dispatches from President Davis to Gen. Lee. The New York Herald parades the followingts of some dispatches from President Davis to Gen. Lee, which were captured by the Federal.

s not the whole duty of nations. It fully endorses Napoleon's views on the American question. Believing there is no chance whatever of restoring the Union, it says England is not bound to bear the obstructions to commerce and shipping — vexations so long as it appears she would endure greater exiles by taking action to end them — but she is not bound to endure them any longer. There is no principle which should prescribe to her for an indefinite period a national silence and immobility, if by speaking and moving she can exert a pacifying influence on the combatants, who have lost their independence and power of self control. A dispatch from London, of the 28th June--the very latest — says: "The Persia's advices excited attention so-day."

The enemy occupies the line of the Antietam river, and Lee is near Hagerstown. Our army has been in line of battle since Friday evening. A fight is expected every day. The Potomac is falling at Williamsport.

To be sure it will be much more difficult to offer effectual resistance now than it would have been had he united in an attack with Pemberton and his eighteen or twenty thousand men. But there is still every reason to hope; if the commander will only lay aside his quiescent attitude and rouse himself to a true sense of his situation. In another quarter our affairs, so far from being in straits, are in the highest degree promising. General Lee gained a tremendous victory at Gettysburg. Of that we cannot see the slightest reason to doubt. He took 15,000 or 18,000 prisoners, and he has secured them all. He fell back purely of his own will, and from no compulsion of the enemy. He is five miles nearer Washington than he was at Gettysburg, he has not the slightest intention, apparently, of leaving Maryland; his communications are perfect, he is receiving reinforcements every day, and the indications are that he will yet make a mo
