Where is the army of Johnston? Where is the army of Bragg? Where are Beauregard, Price, Taylor, D. H. Hill, Kirby Smith? Where are the hundreds of thousandses. In the same manner the bayonets of the Confederates will dis cse of the pretensions of Seward and his comrades dust recovered from a mortal terror, induced by- Lee's invasion of Pennsylvania, the think they have won everything because the were not utterly ruined, and offer terms to a people who have half a million of men underleston. Johnston is falling back to a strong position, with an army increasing in strength every day, while Grant is pursuing him with an army daily diminishing Gen. Lee is on the soil of Virginia with one of the b vest armies that ever trod the earth. On all sides the sun is emerging from the temporary cloud by which it was obs
ve Harper's Ferry. Through this gap parses the main road from Winchester to Alexandria and Washington city. What the movements are, or where the location of Gen Lee's forces, we are not advised. It is by no means improbable, however, that they occupy a position to meet any attempts of the enemy to obstruct their line of communication. The occupation of Sticker's Gap, and no ferry at that point, will be of little consequence if Gen. Lee designs crossing the mountains. He will perhaps take the Front Royal route and fall back on the same roads over which the main body of his troops advanced, crossing the mountains at Ashby's or Chester Gaps. But we hr which the main body of his troops advanced, crossing the mountains at Ashby's or Chester Gaps. But we have yet no evidence that Gen. Lee regards a further retrograde movement as necessary.

The retreat of Lee now becomes a rout, with his army broken and much heavier loss of killed and wounded than was supposed, and will relieve a large force for the restoration of order in New York. During the New York disturbances last week the following amounts
unfounded. The New York correspondent of the Times, writing on June 26, says there has been a great revulsion of sentiment among all classes. The object of Gen. Lee in his advance in Maryland and Pennsylvania is admitted by nearly every one except a few philosophical opinionists and Government contractors to be nothing less than the capture of Washington Mr. Lincoln and his Cabinet, as well as General Hooker, share this opinion. There is a very widespread and earnest wish that Lee may be successful. The belief that the present Administration is incompetent to conduct the war, that it cannot conquer the South, that the South will indubitably receive nizes all their young men in societies to resist aid to the war which the common sense of the majority has long since ceased to approve. Such is the nation while Lee is thundering at the place of the Capital and in the people rather approve than the Confederate chief and with that were President instead of Mr. Lincoln to settl

A telegram, dated Hagerstown, 19th, says that the rear guard of Lee's army left Martinsburg at two o'clock Saturday morning. Meade's whole army is across the Potomac, rapidly following. Lee is retreating his main force by Strasburg, via Staunton, and not Culpeper. The American says that "the Hon.

William Whiting, Solicitor of the War Department, leaves Boston on Wednesday, for Europe, as the commissioned legal adviser of our Ministers in England and France. His mission is said to be one of vast importance, and is reported to have reference to the building in England of iron clad ships, supposed to be intended for the rebel army." Perfect quiet continued in New York, and there are no indications of a renewal of the riot. Gold had advanced in New York from 125½ to 127½.
