Northern civilization. The New York Herald contains a letter from one of its numerous correspondents in McClellan's army, in which we are informed that it is the opinion of his officers that the South requires to be civilized, and they think that Northern colonization in the South would be an admirable process for effecting that end. We think it likely that the Herald's correspondent tells the truth about this matter, as there seems to be no motive for a lie, and, indeed, that such is the general sentiment of the Northern people. There are different opinions, however, about that thing called civilization. John Mitchell, in his address, some years ago, to the Literary Societies of the University, expressed his especial disgust with the word "Civilization," which, he said, was a word "vague in meaning, barbarous in form, a hybrid word, a word with a Latin head and a Greek tail, and like hundreds of other new fangled words, on that principle, dubious and confused in its acce

It would be as fair to blame the African for being black, or the serhen, therefore, we find a General, just before a battle, reading to his troops a dispatch from McClellan announcing the capture of Richmond, we may feel assured that his troops have no stomach for thchmond and fall back on Lynchburg, we may feel assured that the Herald has gloomy tidings from McClellan, and that it dare not let the public know what it has heard. In a word, this system of lying , and nothing else? We are very much afraid the Yankee Government will get disgusted with McClellan's loud bragging and poor performance, and turn him adrift. We should deprecate his dismissal some man — if it be possible to find such in Yankeedom — who would lie less and do more. Let McClellan stay, by all means, is our prayer. We would not have him killed or captured for the same reas

The Philadelphia Inquirer, of the 11th, under the caption of "a significant visit," says: General Burnside's arrival at Fortress Monroe to communicate directly with the headquarters of the army of the Potomac, and with the authorities of Washington, is an event full of interest. Occurring, as it does, immediately after his department has been added to McClellan's at a time, too, when the debates in the North Carolina Convention indicate that she is in a state of transition towards the Union, and when a distracting controversy has arisen out of Mr. Stanley's unseasonable action upon the petty subject of the negro schools, it must have important objects and seems to foreshadow signal results. The visit of Gen. Burnside will, therefore, give occasion to unlimited surmise and speculation. Whatever the views and suggestions of this officer may be th
The feeling in Norfolk. --The following letter, dated Norfolk, June 7, appears in the Petersburg Express, of yesterday: I have not much of interest to communicate.--The Yankees suppress all news here so far as is in their power, and we have nothing but street rumors, of which the city is full. We have every reason to believe that McClellan has been badly whipped, and hope sincerely it is so. The Yankees have suppressed the Day Book, and started in its place a miserable, lying little sheet, called the Norfolk Union. Nobody buys it except their own men, and I think it will soon perish of inanition. It is published at the Herald office, which they seized for the purpose. The scoundrels make every effort by lies and deceits of every kind to make the North and our own friends believe that there is a strong Union sentiment here.--There is not a shadow of truth in it. No people ever behaved better than the people of Norfolk under their misfortunes, and I shall be proud
