The Virginia.

The Federal Government will undoubtedly go to work at once to prepare a dozen vessels to offset the Virginia. They have plenty of materials and men for the work, and it is not their habit to lie still under disasters, or, at one, two, or a dozen reverses, to give up all for lost. Therefore, now is the time for the "iron monster," as the New York Herald calls the Virginia, to follow up her glorious victory and reap its magnificent fruits. We observe that Lincoln has ordered an additional number of ships to Hampton Roads. We hope the Virginia will sink or capture the whole par.
