ea, is surprising. The same superiority was observable in the sinking of the privateer Petrel by a signal shell, and at Bull Run. There and elsewhere the enemy have met our troops in superior numbers, yet their loss is invariably more than ours. Ince to our troops, and show the Powers of Europe that they ought not to arrive at hasty conclusions from the disaster at Bull Run." The Yankee ships during the present war have repeatedly engaged our batteries on shore — at Sewell'pand Pig's powo tons, was fired into by a frigate and sunk. Here is another proof of Yankee superiority. But the grand proof was at Bull Run. We all know how that was, and consequently we all know what to think of Yankee superiority. As for the affair in oss bayonets with them. Capt. Dooley, with his Montgomery Guards, tried to reach them with the bayonet at the combat of Bull Run, and Capt. Boggs tried to do the same. They had as well have tried to charge a flock of wild geese.--The Yankees were n

Assuming that he has at length gone the way of all the earth, the first question suggested is:What will be the effect of his loss to the bad cause of this Southern rebellion?

"Combining the practical training and knowledge and popularity of the regular soldier, with a very large experience as a fire-eating politician, legislator and executive civil officer, State and Federal, Davis was the very man required," &c "Thus we can account for the wonderful military energy, activity and resources brought into the field by the rebel States. They have been called into requisition by Davis," &c. "In connexion with the late disasters to the rebels in the field (Bethel ? Bull Run ? Manassas ? Springfield ?) and the manifest hopelessness of their sinking cause, the loss of Davis, among many of his followers, would be accepted as a judgment of Providence," which ought to have no weight with Bennett, as he has no more faith in God than man. Making due allowances for the politic purposes of our enemies to exaggerate every loss which the South may suffer, and which Bennett alleges, in the alleged death of Davis, is as great as a Manassas defeat, no Executive of ordi
