The great victory.increasing excitement.action of the Confederate Congress.&c., &c., &c. The excitement in the city yesterday reached a height such as we never before witnessed. The anxiety of many of our own citizens subsided on learning that their kindred were uninjured in the great battle at Stone Bridge, and all seemed to unite in the general exultation. The intelligence from Washington, which we publish in our telegraphic column, was received at an early hour in the day, and immediately posted upon the bulletin board, around which a vast throng congregated, and so continued until night, cheering and otherwise giving expression to joyous feeling. Ladies caught the enthusiasm of the hour, and stopped to listen to the glad news, while pleasure sparkled in every bright eye. While this was the state of affairs in the Capital of the Confederate States, how was it in the doomed city where Lincoln, and Seward, and Scott, and hosts of corrupt satellites, have been planning iniquito

When rogues fall out, &c. --Our report from Washington in reference to the doings of Lincoln's Congress states that the House of Representatives, by a vote of eighty-one to forty-two, had passed a resolution to appoint a committee to investigate the Army and Navy contracts recently made by those paragons of virtue and honesty, Secretaries Cameron and Welles. On all questions where the expenditure of money is concerned, the House was nearly unanimous, but when it comes to investigating the manner in which the money is spent, one-third of Lincoln's vassals have not courage to face the music. A very reasonable supposition is that not a few of those who voted no on the resolutions, were deeply interested in some fat Government job, and did not like the idea of having their operations exposed to the gaze of an unfeeling world. Messrs. Welles and Cameron who, while out of office, were a couple of the most disinterested patriots in the country, whose faces were constantly set as a fl
— until at last a political anti-slavery organization was formed in the North and West, which continued to gain strength year after year, till at length it had obtained control of every free State in the Union, and exacted himself, through free State votes alone, to the Presidency of the United States. He chooses to pass over the fact that the party to which he thus owes his place and his present power of mischief, is wholly and totally a sectional organization; and as such, condemned by Washington, by Jefferson, by Jackson, Webster and Clay, and by all the founders and preservers of the Republic, and utterly inconsistent with the principles or the peace, the stability or the existence even, of our Federal system. Sir, there never was an hour, from the organization of this sectional party, when it was not predicted by the wisest men and truest patriots, and when it ought not to have been known by every intelligent man in the country, that it must sooner or later precipitate a revolu
