The Herald, the organ.
The New York Herald
was, at the last advices, engaged in snubbing the hapless Greeley
for endeavoring to fan the flames of discontent against Gen. McClellan
, on account of his procrastination in advancing upon the rebels at Manassas
insists that McClellan
knows what he is about, that he is bringing the drill and discipline of his army to perfection and is determined this time to make sure work of it. The Herald
has also discovered that the line of the Potomac
is not the only nor the most important road to the subjugation of the South
That by the Mississippi
, and from Bowling Green
, are of as great importance, and moreover, says the Herald,
the period is not far distant when the
term of enlistment of the Southern volunteers will expire, and they have determined not to re- enlist.
Their hopes are based upon the desertion by the South
of its own cause, and on the conviction that the men whom they cannot defeat in battle, by their refusal to reenlist will defeat themselves.
it must be admitted, has often thrown light upon the real designs and expectations of the Federal Government
, and, as a Federal organ, seems altogether to have cast the Tribunes
into the shade.
This must be a horrible pill for Greeley
to swallow, but it is none the less certain and inevitable.
, who, at the beginning of the war was mobbed for disloyalty, has now elbowed his way to the head of the faithful, and reads lectures to the Tribune
upon patriotism and fidelity, with a front of grave and complacent virtue that is edifying to behold.
The knave has thrust the fanatic to the wall, and is now, as he should be, the court journal of the meanest and most rascally despotism under the sun.
