efence, if not for attack. From all the outer garrisons and troop depots the rebel army at the capital is being augmented. Silently but surely the storm is gathering. Let us not be too sanguine of success. It may be that the rebel General will make it a Waterloo for us, while upon him, through the smoke of that day's battle, will shine the sun of a second day's Austerlitz. Lee will not throw away a single chance. He is not the man of Lost Opportunities.--Had Lee had command of our armies at the outset of war, we verily believe the rebellion would have been crushed in less than eight months. But we had only such second-rate Undertaker as Burnside and Hooker, Butler and Pope. Let us trust that our Lieutenant-General may be thoroughly prepared for the conflict; that when the conflict comes, our immense plurality of men may not be driven to their deaths in vain attempts to accomplish an impossible purpose, and that for once our leaders may be equal to their Herculean task.
