We stated, some time ago, our belief that McClellan had lost, since he landed in Virginia, at least 80,000 men. That we made a good guess, we are now enabled to prove from the showing of the Yankees themselves. 1st Chandler, in his speech, says that, first and last, 158,000 men had been sent to him. this information he obtained from the War office. It cannot therefore, he called in question. 2d "Agate," the correspondent of the Cincinnati --a thorough war paper — says that President Lincoln, after his visit to McClellan at Berkley said to four gentlemen, only the Friday before the day on which he was writing, "with marked emphasis" I can't tell where the men have gone in that army. I have sent there, at one time and another, one hundred and--(perhaps prudence quires that I should leave the next two places for figures blank.) one hundred and.-- thousand and I can only find just half that many now. Where can they have gone! Burnside accounts to for every man he has ta
The Lincoln despotism in Fredericksburg. The execrable conduct of the enemy in Fredericksburg is enough of itself to fire with the deepest indignation every Virginian and every Southern heart. The despot of Russia, the only Power in the world which has shown any sympathy with the Lincoln despotism, is the only ruler of modern times, except Abraham Lincoln, capable of perpetrating such tyranny. If there is a town in Virginia, or the whole South, that least of all others deserved such sufAbraham Lincoln, capable of perpetrating such tyranny. If there is a town in Virginia, or the whole South, that least of all others deserved such sufferings, it is Fredericksburg.

In the legislative councils of the nation every hour makes manifest that the object of the war is not to uphold the Government, the Constitution, or the Union, "but to lift the artificial weights from all men's shoulders," in the language of President Lincoln--to wage "an irrepressible conflict against the institutions of slavery — to rob the white man of his liberty, that the slave may enjoy it. Nineteenths of the legislation of Congress has been this session directed towards the condition of the slave, and how to alleviate that condition, while the awful situation of this Government, intended for white men, is entirely lost sight of. In the meantime the nation "reacts and staggers to and fro like a drunken man." Democrats of New Jers

General Twiggs's swords returned by Gen, Butler. Gen. Butler has sent to Lincoln the following characteristic letter, giving the history of the seizure of the swords of Gen. Twiggs: Headq'rs, Departm't of the Gulf, New Orleans, July 1, 1862.
