A Republican of New York, who has held a high office heretofore, said: "I am so d — d mad and mortified that I can't eat or sleep. Look at it — while the President of the rebels was leading his troops on to victory, our President was joking at home or preparing for a pleasure sail in his new gondola." The following items are from the Louisville Courier: The Virginia Races.--The Lincoln dispatches yesterday virtually told us that the quickest and best runners from Manassas. Sunday, were the members of Congress and others who went over to "see the races." They proved themselves splendid runners, and had no difficulty in keeping far in advance of the terrible and blood-thirsty Virginians. The telegraph says the Southern troops at Manassas are in a starving condition, but we are reliably informed that they can live a few days at least upon the large quantity of provisio

He seems certain of having made more than one of them bite the dust. The capture of a live Yankee by this old negro, was related by him in the most enthusiastic manner. He espied one of them somewhat separated from the rest, in the act of cutting stick for Washington, and immediately started in pursuit of him. On coming up with the brave Lincoln soldier, he brought his gun to bear on uncle "Dick; " but this, he said, he had no fear of, and did not halt until he had a fast hold on the Yankee's collar, and lost no time in conducting him where the prisoners had been confined. On asking the old negro if he intended returning to his army, he promptly answered that he should do so as soon as he transacted his business in this city, and that he expected in a short time to beat on his drum in the streets of Washington that good old tu

A few days ago we published a telegraphic dispatch from Washington to the effect that Abe Lincoln had visited the 69th in Alexandria, presented them with a complimentary letter, and that they had consented to re-enlist. The following, from the New York Express, of the 25th stamps that dispatch with falsehood: The various Societies are requested to hold themselves in readiness in their regalia at 6 o'clock to-morrow morning to receive the 69th Regiment on their return from the seat of war.

Norfolk, July 31, 1861. Among the countless outrages that have been committed on our sea-coast by the myrmidons of Lincoln, there is one which deserves special attention, and which furnishes additional proof of the utter abjection and demoralization of the Northern army. While the last of the coffee from the old wreck o to give gratis all they make, above their family support, to the soldiers. With such patriotic providers, and such cheering prospects of good crops, what a task Lincoln will have to starve us out! But it seems that "Dr." Winfieldum Scott can't bear to see the poor, half famished "rebels" starve to death, if "Dr." Lincoln canLincoln can; for just see the provisions he gave us at Manassas, to feed our hungry troops, and the guns he gave us to kill squirrels, birds and other game to eat; besides, see theliot of medicines he gave us for our sick soldiers, and the many cannon to celebrate the 21st of July.

In a few days we may expect to hear that Manassas Gap has been the scene of a great struggle, upon the issue of which the fate of the Federal Capital must depend. Hitherto the prestige of success has been altogether on the side of the South--a matter of the greatest importance at the commencement of a campaign. Mr. Jefferson Davis appears to have a well supplied, well officered, and well organized army; while Mr. Lincoln and Gen. Scott have under their command raw levies more formidable on paper than they are to an enemy in the field. Actual warfare, however, is a sharp, quick instructor, and the Northern population have only to initiate the energy and activity of the Southern insurgents, to learn those habits of discipline and to collect these resources upon which success depends quite as much as noon enduring courage and a good and righteous cause. The two armies were approaching each other, and the f
