Hooker in England.

John Bull does not seem to think highly of "fighting Joe." All his papers are down upon him. The London Times, especially, compares him to the demagogue Cleon, with this difference; that Cleon did what he promised to do, and what able Generals had failed to do; whereas Hooker failed worse than any of the Generals he reviled.
