Federal falsehoods.

We publish this morning a letter from the Head&Chas. J: Faulkner, contradicting, most completely and entirely the telegraphic report of the New York Herald, in which that gentleman was represented as having, at Martinsburg, crawfithed out of the ‘ "rebellion,"’ and shewed his willingness to yield to the Yankee pressure. Bennett and his correspondents are engaged in a deep game of manufacturing public sentiment at home and abroad, and the introduction of a prominent man like Mr. Faulkner as deserting the Southern cause, was a strong point. They hesitated not to make it. Yet, according to Mr. Faulkner, they had not a single word from him at a public assemblage or anywhere else to base their statement upon. On the contrary, he has been a consistent advocate of the Southern cause and is willing now to give up all he has to promote its success. This instance is but a fair example of prevarication, out of whole cloth, by the Herald and the Federal press generally.
