The summer Campaign.

The New York correspondent of the London Times expresses the belief that the Conscription act and other strong measures passed at the close of the Federal Congress were designed rather for the subjugation of the North than of the South, and that the summer will be employed in "crushing out" all exhibitions of disloyalty. It is, he believes, to prevent the disintegration of its own empire, rather than the subjugation of the South, that immense armies are to be raised. We cannot coincide with this opinion. We believe that the design is first to consolidate the North, and then to rush upon the South. But we have no doubts of the result, if in the meantime we put forth every energy in preparation, and in counteracting these Xerxes preparations. Whatever the North may do, we must not be idle this summers.
