The late battles.

There has been nothing in the late battles which should dishearten the Southern people. Their little armies, poorly armed and equipped, have contended heroically against the most enormous odds, provided with the best weapons that the world could furnish, and, if not victorious, they have made every battle cost the enemy a price which was equal to a defeat, and have not only saved, but immortalized their own honor. It is idle to talk of subjugating such a people. The war has just begun, and the spirit of the South is rising with the pressure upon it. The invading hordes will have to contest every inch of ground, and the time, we hope, is not distant when they will be hurled back by a disaster compared with which that of Manassas was mere child's play.
