Federal mendacity.

The last Federal statement of the imaginary victory at Piketon, Ky., which we saw in the Washington Star, placed the Confederate loss as high as 2,015! This is a further Clustration of the unblushing mendacity of the Lincoln press. It brings to mind a communication lately received, in which a gentleman gave the result of a careful examination of the statements of the Baltimore Clipper, which he continued up to the time he left Maryland, some two weeks ago. He summed up the enormous number of two million four hundred thousand "rebels" killed and disposed of by the Lincolnites since the opening of active hostilities! This information will prove highly interesting to our people, who must be ignorant that such a vast number of our noble men have died in defence of their rights.
