e doubt, after this, that when the Yankees say an affair is indecisive, they are in fact badly whipped? But if they are not whipped, why do they shout so vociferously for reinforcements? The Baltimore American tells us that up to Thursday they had captured 6,000 prisoners. but it accounts for only 800, although General Schenck announces that 1,500 more were to come on. On Thursday there was no general battle, but heavy skirmishing, in which 5,000 prisoners, making 11,000 in all, were captured. The gallant Dutchmen who distinguished themselves by running so at Chancellorsville, it seems, demolished Longstreet's corps and captured a thousand prisoners. These lies are for gross even for Yankee credulity. The fact seems to be that a division of the army has kept the whole Yankee force at bay two days, and that Gen. Lee is rapidly concentrating in the neighborhood of Gettysburg In a few days we expect to hear that Meade's army has been defeated, and probably annihilated.

Poor, dead Commanders in Chief of Doodledom,--there they lie all in a row,--six green graves, and greener occupants, festering in the winding sheet of their dead reputations. Tread lightly on their ashes, Major-General Meade, successor of Hooker, and, instead of imitating their vain glorious and hollow ways, bend thine ear with humility amongst the long grass that covers their creases, and-- "Hark from the tombs a doleful sound, Thinned ears attend the , and other munitions of war, has gone down his insatiable throat and he is still unappeased, endeavoring to stay his stomach with fat valleys and Pennsylvania militia, until, in the choice vernacular of the Yankees, lie can "gobble down" another Grand Army. We are fearful that Meade will not organize his larder in time for the visitation of this ravenous Virginian and that he may find it necessary, in order to allay the pangs of hunger, to bolt Washington whole, and all its horrid contents.
In conformity with the orders of the War Department, dated June 27, 1863, I relinquish the command of the Army of the Potomac. It is transferred to Major- General George G. Meade a brave and accomplished officer, who has nobly earned the confidence and esteem of the army on many a well fought field. Impressed with the belief tit farewell. Joseph Hooker, Major General. The Herald, in a double-headed editorial announces the retirement of Gen. Hooker and the appointment of Gen. Meade "with no ordinary feelings of gratification." It eulogizes Gen. Meade's military qualifications and forbears to "deal harshly" with Gen. Hooker, who has displayGen. Meade's military qualifications and forbears to "deal harshly" with Gen. Hooker, who has displayed his patriotism by requesting to be relieved of the command of the Army of the Potomac. A telegram from headquarters says that "nothing could have exceeded the surprise occasioned by this announcement"--the change of commanders. "Gen. Hooker was deeply grieved," etc. A dispatch from Washington to the Herald, dated the

Seymour was received to-day stating that the battle at Gettysburg had not been decisive, and asking him to send all the troops he could raise without delay, as the need for them was pressing. Philadelphia, July 3.--Parties arriving here from Gettysburg say that on Wednesday 10,000 of our troops were engaged with 30,000 of the enemy. During Wednesday night 75,000 men of Gen. Meade a troops came up and took favorable positions, while 25,000 other Union troops were near at hand. The rebels had mainly concentrated near Gettysburg on Wednesday night, and there is little doubt but the great battle of yesterday would involve every available man in both armies.
