We suppose that the event in Kentucky
, so much to be regretted by the South
, will infuse more activity into the pending struggle.
The incidents of the revolution are evidently taking a concentrating direction, and great struggles are near at hand it is to be hoped.
The fifth act of the national drama has been brought on the stage, we believe, and the bad, in which the villain is exposed and the wrong righted, is, we trust, to come before the curtain drops again.
There has been an unusual and painfully-prolonged time occupied in the clearing of the stage — the removal of the tables and chairs — for the final scene.

Let the actors indeed come on, and let us behold their deeds — let us see them settle the right by the wager of battle, by the strong arm, the strong will, and all the high impulses of manhood and patriotism.
If we fall, let us fall.
But we shall not fail!
We shall conquer as sure as there is justice in this world.
We shall conquer and enjoy that independence and happiness to which a great trial, a great tribulation, and great struggle with a powerful and brutal enemy will entitle us.
