edible account we have been able to collect, represents Gen. Lee as having thoroughly repulsed McClellan on the 17th, as having pursued him on the 18th, and having defeated him again on the 19th, (Friday.) This account receives confirmation from McClellan's bulletin, claiming a great victory. His victories always result in "a change of base." It is strange that our community should have been so much excited by the lying reports of the Yankee papers, and the lying bulletins of McClellan. They had experienced enough of both while McClellan was below Richmond. Not a skirmish occurred bMcClellan was below Richmond. Not a skirmish occurred between a dozen men, that he did not telegraph a great victory, let the result be what it might. When skulking under the cover of his gunboats, whence he stole off with not a third of his original artrong — the largest capture ever made in this country; and went mad over a reported victory of McClellan, which, had it ever occurred, would have been but a miserably poor compensation for the loss t
The Yankee losses in officers. --The Yankees lost in the engagement of Wednesday, Major-General Mansfield killed, and Generals Hooker, Harrsuff, Duryee, Richardson, Edgwick, French, Sumner, Dana, Mesgher, Richetts, Weber and Rodman wounded. The following is a dispatch from Hooker to McClellan after he was wounded: A great battle has been fought and we are victorious I had the honor to open it yesterday afternoon, and it continued until ten o'clock this morning, when I was wounded and compelled to quit the field. The battle was fought with great violence on both sides. The carnage has been awful. I only regret that I was not permitted to take part in the operations until they were concluded, for I had counted on either capturing their army or driving them into the Potomac. The Herald chronicles the capture of General Howell Cobb and his staff. It reports that Gen. Cobb is wounded and has been sent to Frederick.

r the safety of the country and the cause, they seem to be intent on nothing but securing their own popularity at home. We hope they are better than they appear to be; but to an outsider they seem to think it quite as great a misfortune to lose a vote as to lose a country. Have these men forgotten the experience of last session? Have they forgotten the disgraceful hurry with which, after utterly neglecting the public safety for months, they fled from Richmond upon the first alarm of McClellan's approach? Do they wish to repeat that disgraceful exhibition? Will not one suffice? If they are not satisfied, we tell them they are taking the best possible steps to bring on the necessity of another stampede. If they will not recruit the army, and that shortly, there is nothing more certain than another armed invasion. Was there ever such criminal folly as that in which the Congress of the Confederate States is at present indulging? Last year, while they were talking and wast

he Government in a nut-shell. It is simply "give us place." Does Greeley attack the President? It is "give us place," Does Sumner oppose the Administration? It is "give us place. Does the cabal of abolition Generals urge on the attacks upon McClellan which he has just confuted so gloriously in Maryland ! It is "give us place" Do the Governors of several of the New England States conspire with our defunct Jacobin War Committee in secret conclave ? It is for the purpose of breaking up the Cabrefused all aid to Madison's Administration unless it changed its policy and its members. This New England devil lacks invention, and repeats himself. Fine plans and fine plotters. These revolutionary dreamers forget that the bayonets of McClellan's army can defend the President from Southern as well as Southern traitors. They forget that Fremont will have to be elected Governor by the votes of the people, and that the people of New York would heartily defeat the hero of fat contracts i
