The Orator of the times.

--A party of ladies and gentlemen from Fredericksburg visited the batteries at Aquia Creek on Wednesday last, and had quite a lively time. Among those who made speeches on the occasion was Mr. J. H. Lacy, who said, in conclusion, pointing to the cannon at his feet; ‘ "But this is no time for speaking; the true Orator lies here!"’ And the thundering cheer that replied, told that the artillery were ready for the fray.
