t to be, unconvinced. That these observations of Mr. Pollard are accurate, and that they lead him to a correct conclusion, there cannot be the shadow of a doubt. Lincoln is assuredly convinced that he has run nearly the length of his tether, and that he can no longer recruit his armies without resorting to a general conscription. When that comes, he knows it may break the back of the war. Nor is that all. The New York Herald tells us that, if the war continues one year longer, the United States must become bankrupt, and suspend it through sheer exhaustion. Mr. Pollard says there is one question in everybody's mouth at the North, and that is: Have the South the resolution to hold out? And the answer to that question is more important to the people at Washington than would be plans of every fortification held by the Confederate forces. And it is at such a time — when the enemy has nearly gone the full extent he can possibly go — when peace is almost within our grasp — that th<
If the miserable croakers who, within the last three weeks, have been converting Richmond into a perfect Frog-Pond, will take the trouble to read Mr. E. A. Pollard's "Results of Ten Months Observation in the Enemy's Country," published in the Examiner of Monday, they would probably feel ashamed of their unmanly fears, if they have not altogether lost the power of blushing. Mr. Pollard enjoyed the most ample opportunities of judging, being a sort of prisoner at large, living at a hotel, and mixing and conversing freely with all sorts of persons — political, private and military. Among a great many things of much interest, he tells us that the Yankees are on the point of exhaustion in the recruiting business — that their last draft of three hundred thousand brought in but seventy thousand--that the larger portion of recruits since Lincoln's proclamation has been made of negroes — that Grant's army, in the lines of which he spent six days, is composed of negroes, in the proportio<
has been dealt out to the meek and submissive Savannah is no criterion to judge of the vengeance reserved for Richmond. Its private hordes of tobacco are, first of all, to be appropriated. The croakers may croak submission, but they cannot save their tobacco. Everything worth stealing is to be appropriated. There are to be no stores here but Yankee stores, no hotels but Yankee hotels, no druggists but Yankee druggists. Everything — all employments, all trades, all professions,--is to be Yankee. A Virginian must take the oath in its vilest shape. He must be watched like a thief wherever he moves. He can hope for no employment beyond that of blacking a Yankee master's boots, or bringing him water from the hydrant, or brushing his coat, or, perhaps, waiting on him at the table. Such is the fate the croakers are invoking on Richmond, at the very time when Lincoln has nearly exhausted his supplies of men, and another year must bring with it a collapse in his plans of conquest.

And it is at such a time — when the enemy has nearly gone the full extent he can possibly go — when peace is almost within our grasp — that the army of croakers is spreading over our country, like the frogs, lice and locusts of Egypt, defiling and debasing everything they touch, and poisoning the very atmosphere with their pestilential breath. Why, the very fact of his allowing old Blair to come here is proof positive that he is in a state of extreme anxiety, and ought to encourage our people to the utmost. These croakers are already making themselves ready for submission.--Things, they say, will not be half so bad as we apprehend. Negro emancipation will not take place. The same power that has already emancipated and made soldiers of two hundred thousand slaves, where there is a large army opposing them, will become moderate as soon as that army shall have been disba<

Such, he says, is the universal belief in the North. All parties agree that the only hope of subduing the South lies in the desire of the South to get rid of the war, which they all hope will
