in the city of Washington. "M'Clellan's great victory — now forward to Richmond." The New York Herald says "McClellan's important victory of Sunday over the great liberating rebel army of General Lee, in Maryland, marks a turn of the tidt General Lee had concentrated the bulk of his forces in or near this position, not simply to arrest the advance of General McClellan, but to surprise him with a crushing repulse. After this defeat of the rebel General, therefore, a vigorous pursuit of his scattered and demoralized army is all that is needed to finish it. The dispatches of General McClellan show that he fully realizes his opportunity, that he is vigorously following up the enemy, and that in all probability the remnants e Pennsylvania border, be called down to stand guard around Washington for 30 days, and within this limitation, while Gen. McClellan is pushing after the main army of Lee up the Shenandoah Valley, this column of our reserves from Washington, by way o

iscouragement in the present state of affairs. It appears, then, that on Sunday, 14th September, the corps of D. H. Hill was attacked by the entire force of McClellan; that after an obstinate resistance, one wing was forced to give ground; that it retired slowly, fighting as it fell back, and was never routed; that it was reinalties from Sunday to Wednesday night inclusive. That of the enemy is stated by eye-witnesses to have been several times greater. It should not be omitted that McClellan left his dead and wounded behind him — a sure proof that he was defeated. Our people are disappointed because we did not gain a victory as decisive as thoseity of ammunition, 200 wagons, 1,800 horses, and 1,000 runaway negroes. It should also be remembered, that this capture was effected, inspire of the attempts of McClellan, with his whole force, to prevent it. Surely, he must be a very exacting man who would require greater results from the operations of ten days. They are among th
An Irreclaimable Clatterer. The New York Herald. commenting on the battle of Sharpsburg, declares that "the country will surely expect Gen. Halleck to cut short the session of the rebel Congress at Richmond, while Gen. McClellan is gathering up the fragments of the late great Maryland liberating rebel army." The people who can swallow the nauseating absurdities with which they are daily drugged by this Sawney of the Herald, must be the most credulous of mankind. The "on to Richmond" of that braggart journal has been repeated every month for the last year and a half with the same confident and blustering arrogance, and it is forthcoming again now, after repeated trials and failures, with as much assurance as if it were asserted for the first time. Nothing could inspire even Bennett with such unparalleled audacity but the boundless gullibility of the Northern mob to whose vicious passions he panders for his livelihood, and upon whose amazing credulity he plays as upon a ha
t back to places of safety. On Friday, the 12th (two days after our main army had passed westward from Frederick,) McClellan approached Frederick with his grand army from the direction of Washington, his first object being the rescue of his armmmand, held "young Napoleon" in check until the Yankee forces at the Ferry had capitulated--and this almost in sight of McClellan ! Longstreet then fell back to unite with Jackson and Hill, who, having finished their job at the Ferry, marched to joi runs down it into the Potomac a few miles below Shepherdstown. On the east side of the valley and of the Antletam lay McClellan, with the abrupt Blue Ridge mountain behind him. On the west side of the Antletam lay Gen. Lee's army, with high mountafor several miles, while Longstreet and Hill had also forced back his centre and left — we holding the battlefield, but McClellan still holding a position between the Antietam and the Blue Ridge. The battle was one of the hardest fought of the

Paroled. --John Blassingham, a citizen of Williamsburg, formerly proprietor of the old Raleigh Tavern, who was arrested by the detectives of the Provost Marshal, on his appearance in Richmond, several weeks since, for having in his possession a pass from Gen. McClellan, and three bogus C. S. Treasury notes made in Philadelphia, has been released from the Military Prison of Eastern District, on parole, by order of Gen. Winder. The friends of Mr. B. claim that he would not have been permitted to leave Williamsburg without the pass, and that the money which proved to be bad was paid him by the Yankees without a knowledge on his part of its worthless character.
