This day. --There are certain days which seem to have been dedicated by Nature to great events. The battle of Cunersdorff and the battle of Waterloo both occurred on the 18th of June. Jerusalem was taken by Titus, Moscow by Napoleon, and Mexico by Scott, on the 14th September, and on the same day the Allies landed in the Crimes. Guy Fawkes was to have blown up the Parliament, William of Orange landed in England, the battle of Rosbach was gained by Frederic, and the battle of Inkerman by the Allies, all on the 5th November. This day, 57 years ago, the Prussian army sustained at Jena the most disastrous overthrow that modern history makes mention of, except that afterwards sustained by the French army at Waterloo. We are inclined to supernation upon this subject. We cannot resist the impression that our troops will fight a great battle and gain a great victory to-day.
