ent. He was gratified with the chance of winning renown by retrieving the fortunes of the oft-defeated Federal army of the Potomac. He has met a well merited fate, and must now go to the Yankee Hades of all defeated Generals. What our enemies propose next, and how long they will extend the time for the capture of Richmond, we shall perhaps soon learn.
