Another Manassas lethargy. It has been six weeks since the last gun was fired in the fights around Richmond that sent McClellan "skedaddling" to the shelter of his gunboats at Westover. Since then a lethargy as deep as that which pervaded the army and the country after Manassas seems gradually settling down upon us. We are, apparently, waiting for the enemy to recruit his exhausted strength, and to come forth in the cool weather that will be upon us in the next sixty days. By that time his regiments will all be filled up, and we shall be assailed by three hundred thousand additional troops. We shall at least escape the chance of attacking him before he is ready. We are giving him all the time be can desire. He can never reproach us with pressing on him when he is not prepared. What the consequences will be it is not worth while to anticipate. We saw what they were last year. It is fated, it seems, that we are never to reap the fruits of any victory, no matter how decisive.
