Their Trust.

The notes of busy preparation resound through the Yankee camps, and their journals teem with boasts of the prowess of their veterans and the greatness of their leaders. It is all "Gen. Grant," and not one word of any higher power. An allusion to a superintending Providence would be treated as a piece of silly cant. Goliath, of Gath, was not more boastful and self-reliant. Let them beware. There is a greater than Goliath, who rules the armies of heaven and of earth.
