go on to receive another lesson of defeat. As far as we can see, that is not likely to belong delayed. The Generals in the West, flushed with unhoped for successes, are acting on their own responsibility, and altogether without authority, either of General McClellan or the Secretary of War at Washington. We are informed on this very singular feature in the conduct of the war by no less an authority than Mr. Stanton himself. If these unwary gentlemen should be encouraged to push on into Alabama, they and all their forces will not improbably be surrounded and made an end of, in the same manner as a daring fish that has invaded the mouth of a polyp. The tide of battle, if fortune be too much tempted, may be expected to turn and the North will then wish, when it is too late, that it had held its hand when the cards seemed all in its favor. If a great man struggling with adversity is a spectacle for the gods, Mr. President Davis, delivering his inaugural address, almost on the m

The tide of victory has set in favor of the North. The Federal have effected a lodgment at Roanoke, in North Carolina; they are driving before them the Confederate armies in Missouri, Kentucky, and Tennessee. The capture of 15,000 men, together with the strong position on the Cumberland river, is the greatest advantage that they have yet gained in the war. Having now the victory at Donelson to point to as a set off to the great disaster at Manassas, it is a pity, we think, that they do not make use of the first auspicious occasion for concluding terms with the so called rebels. They have it now in their power to retire from a desperate strife with something like honor. If the Northerners and Southerners can only agree to an equitable partition of territory, a strife may be

If a great man struggling with adversity is a spectacle for the gods, Mr. President Davis, delivering his inaugural address, almost on the morrow of the signal disaster of Donelson, may, perhaps, claim something of our sympathy. In this speech there is no sign of hesitation, no recreant craving for terms with a triumphant enemy. It is such an address as Washington himself might have penned — strong in the belief of the u

States that first seceded, and that still form the head and front of the Southern movement. Dissensions are, indeed, spoken of in the ranks of the Confederates, but when we come to inquire into them we find that the dissentients are so far from the thought of making terms that they reproach the Government of President Davis for not carrying on offensive war, for confining its military operations to the defence of Southern territory. In fine, we are persuaded that the rule of the men of New England is at an end forever in the countries that lie to the south of the Ohio and the Missouri. If the Union is ever restored, it can only be constituted on the basis of voluntary suffrage, and that consent will never be given by any of the slaveholding States.--Victory after victory to the North will not after our conviction as to the inevitable denouncement of this profitless strife. Years ago the Northern Abolitionists foresaw, in the separation of the free from the slave States, the only

The Federal have effected a lodgment at Roanoke, in North Carolina; they are driving before them the Confederate armies in Missouri, Kentucky, and Tennessee. The capture of 15,000 men, together with the strong position on the Cumberland river, is the greatest advantage that they have yet gaited Frenchmen in the long wars of Europe. Let us quote on this point the evidence of Dr. Russell, a man certainly not prejudiced against the Northern cause: "A gentleman who had a good deal of conversation with the Confederate prisoners at Roanoke says they spoke with unanimous bitterness of the North, and that he could not detect a trace of ' Union sentiment,' though they were in captivity. Burnside's expedition has failed to elicit any ' Union sentiment' in North Carolina, which was sa

It is such an address as Washington himself might have penned — strong in the belief of the unanimous feeling of his countrymen — firm in the faith of the success of what he believed to be the right.--These brave and yet temperate words will resound through both hemispheres, and convince those who yet may doubt that the men of the Confederate States are not made of the metal that gives in at the first shock. Mr. Davis describes to us the causes and the progress of the war, which, he says, was reluctantly accepted by the South. "The tide," he admits, "is for the moment against us, but the final result in our favor is not doubtful." "We have had our trials and difficulties. That we are to escape them in future, is not to be hoped. It was to be expected, when we entered upon this war, that it would expose our people to sacrifices
