A Prediction.

Judge Robertson, of Illinois, in the able an manly letter recently addressed by him to his constituents, declares in the most emphatic terms his belief that, in the event of the failure of the Federal campaigns this summer, Lincoln and his Cabinet would become the loudest advocates of peace. We have always believed that if the result of this summer's operations should prove decidedly unfavorable to the Yankees, we should see the beginning of the end. Otherwise, the war will be indefinitely postponed.
