ed in that article " that we have not already at least the beginning of a navy." There seems to be, and very properly too, an evident indisposition on the part of the people to advert in a spirit of complaint to any action, or want of action, in any of the departments of the Government just now. The general sentiment of the public appears to be a willingness to entrust to the great statesman at the head of affairs the entire management of the whole public interests. Since the days of Washington no public man has possessed the confidence of the people in such an unlimited degree. And no one could be more deserving of that confidence. It is, however, obviously impracticable in times like the present for him or any other man to scrutinize the multifarious operations of the several Departments. It would be manifestly improper, therefore, to intimate a reflection upon him for any inefficiency in the Naval or in any one of the other Departments of Government. It may, moreover,

When two Colonels are arrested in one week for insubordination, with suspicion of still graver charges, the General may be excused for want of confidence in all the material of which his force is composed. There have been cases of the inutility of earthworks to check the retreat of an army, or to inspire the defenders with courage to meet an advancing and victorious enemy. I cannot think Washington would be endangered on the south side even if another defeat were inflicted on the Federals. The weather is not favorable for operations in the field. The mornings have been cloudy, and the nights rainy. The roads begin to give promise of Balakalavian difficulties. But, just as the army depends on the bridge, the city depends on a line of single call to Baltimore. The Long Bridge, indeed, has been repaired, and there is some talk of laying down another line of rail; but no one seems t
