John J. Crittenden. We should imagine from the report of Hon. John J. Crittenden's late speech, at Lexington, Kentucky, that the venerable statesman has fallen into the second childhood, to whicHon. John J. Crittenden's late speech, at Lexington, Kentucky, that the venerable statesman has fallen into the second childhood, to which the brightest intellects must come at last. He gravely assumes in his speech that the Union is not broken to such an extent that it may not be healed; talks of the Southern States presenting their the war. Of course, then, the war could not go on, and who could expect more of the patriotic Crittenden?

But the war will not be arrested until Northern sentiment shall require it. The people of the North have undertaken to run this war machine themselves. All eyes are directed to the other side of the ri
There is surprise in some quarters that Gen, Scott does not prevent the erection of batteries at various points on the right bank of the Potomac. Washington,June 22.--A requisition will be sent to Indiana for four additional regiments. It is believed that the Government here will not interfere with the due course of law in the case of the privateer Savannah. The case of the condemned schooner Tropic Wind will probably be appealed to the United States Court. It is said that Crittenden will offer his compromise to Congress, coupled with a threat of the secession of Kentucky if it be not adopted. Beauregard is evidently preparing to advance. From New York. New York,June 22.--The Tribune says it is probable that all the roads between the advance posts of the Southerners, and from them to the Federal lines, are covered with masked batteries. The Times says the battery at Sewell's Point is composed of five columbiads, six smaller pieces, and three rified c
