--The opinion that the Yankees will not take this city was strengthened by the tenor of the remarks of Northern letter-writers published in our yesterday's paper. They seem to admit that the work of taking the place is for the monitors — they must complete what has been begun; and it is intimated that if they can't do it, they are a "failure" and a humbug. This denunciation in advance betokens a feeling of indignation in the anticipation of the "failure" which will in all human probability take place. The monitors can't do the work. They will encounter difficulties yet unknown to the Yankees.
