brag, which the Lincoln Government is playing, to keep up its own spirits and overawe its adversaries. Give McClellan at any time within the last six months two hundred thousand men; give two hundred thousand more to the Yankee army of the West--which would be just double, we verily believe, the largest number of each — and where were the rest? Or, on the supposition that McClellan had the numbers he pretends, then numbers are not to be dreaded if they can produce no greater results. But Bennett unconsciously let out the truth when he declared that there were no men to spare to reinforce Banks, and the Federal Government owned up to its lie when, upon Banks being driven from the Valley Yankee Governor was telegraphed to for militia to save the Capital ! And these are the gasconader who were talking, and still are, about the South being already conquered and at their feet, and who have actually made some gullible Europeans believe that the contest is virtually over, and that they w
ed chroniclers of important events, personalities and gossip being dismissed with very brief notice, or none at all. Great public interests, social, industrial, and political and important public events, formed the staple of their publications. Bennett, an uneducated and mercenary foreign adventurer, inaugurated a new era. He made the newspapers a vehicle of tattle and personalities. He made it a mere gossip, going from door to door and circulating all the scandal of the neighborhood. He estyer and tickle a shallow and depraved public taste; truth being entirely a secondary consideration. Most of the Northern papers have followed in the wake of the Herald, the only difference being an affectation of gentility and refinement, which Bennett never sets up. It must be admitted that he is free from one vice — hypocrisy. With brazen effrontery he flaunts his prostitution in the midday sun, and glories in his shame. His imitators are more demure and decorous, but quite as corrupt and
or a crowning victory at Richmond, and a speedy end to the war, are under way, and will be actively carried out. Out of their own mouths our abolition disorganizers are condemned; and to save themselves from the possible consequences of their folly and treachery they come in at the eleventh hour for reinforcements to the army of Gen. McClellan. [It will be seen by the conclusion of the article copied, that the reported hurrying on of reinforcements to McClellan's army was no fiction. Bennett still reiterates his prediction of a speedy crushing of the rebellion, which he has been constantly doing for a year past, verying the time from three weeks to ninety days; and yet the Confederates have an army in the field, at this day, one corps of which is deemed powerful enough to require the enormous force of two hundred and fifty thousand men to overthrow.] The jackass Congress.

That paper declares that in return for the essence outlay of blood and treasure which the North has incurred, it has gained Cary blue and loss very much It further declares that the Confederates are stronger than ever; that they have more soldiers then the North; that the numbers of Union men in the South are dally diminishing, and the separation of the two sections grows wider and wider. In short, the Harald admits that the Federal Government is in a " out de sac!" Bennett every plainly sees the impossibility of the South, and desires to impress the Northern mind with the same conviction. The reason with him is, that he sees nothing but ruin to the North in the prosecution of a hopeless war — a rules in which he that has never been true to any but himself fears will envelop his own affairs in its wide range. Therefore he would prefer to see it stopped at once. His tactics are well known. His art at rowing both ways at once has never been equalled. In th

It is well known that these so-called "bushwhackers" are inhabitants of the district, and encouraged in the cowardly acts by the prominent citizens here.

Card from Mr. Vallandigham. --The following card, dated Dayton, Ohio, 1st Instant, and addressed to Bennett, appears in the New York Herald: Sir: I thank you for your former courtesies, and am sorry to trouble you again. But persistent lying demands continual contradiction. The statement in the Columbus (Ohio) Dispatch in your Tuesday's issue, that I was "arrested," and that I was implicated in "treasonable plots," or in any other thing "disloyal," is an impudent fabrication of the anonymous scoundrel who telegraphed it. How long is the telegraph to be prostituted to such infamous falsehoods ? C. L. Vallandigham.
s cavalry was represented to have reached Alexandria. We have heard of several names among the wounded not heretofore published. Of these are Col. Lawson Botts, of the 2d Virginia regiment, wounded in the face, but not dangerously; Lieut. Col. Rowan and Maj. Nadenbousch, of the same regiment, the former slightly, and the latter severely; Colonel Grigsby, 27th Va., wounded; Major Terry 4th Va., wounded in the arm; Capts.

Roberts, 5th Va., wounded. Capt. Simme's company, of the 5th Va., lost every officer. Major May, of the 12th Va. reg't, was killed, and two of his brothers in the same regiment wounded. Passengers by the train reported the death of Gen. Ewell, but this was afterwards contradicted. Up to a late hour last night the War Department had received no additional information.
t a formidable demonstration on the part of the rebels, will, if we supinely wait an attack, vastly overrun the few thousands which it will cost to put our approaches into a reasonable condition of defence.--We therefore trust that the day will not be allowed to pass without taking such preliminary steps as may assure our citizens that those who have charge of our interests are alive to the dangers which threaten us, and are active in their efforts to avert them. Fremont Squelched. Bennett's Herald, of Thursday, has the following paragraph. The Jacobin Club, called the National War Committee, have held another secret meeting on the affairs of the nation. It appears that a correspondence between Mr. Opdyke and General Fremont, in regard to the 50,000 men to be raised for the latter's command, was read. Gen. Fremont assents to the acceptance of the command, but further proceedings show that Mr. Stanton understands the matter, and puts a quietus on the affair. In answer
nth for the last year and a half with the same confident and blustering arrogance, and it is forthcoming again now, after repeated trials and failures, with as much assurance as if it were asserted for the first time. Nothing could inspire even Bennett with such unparalleled audacity but the boundless gullibility of the Northern mob to whose vicious passions he panders for his livelihood, and upon whose amazing credulity he plays as upon a harp of a thousand strings. Gen. Halleck probably by g too well to venture upon that crusade which "the country" expects of him, and which would in all probability terminate more disastrously than any of its predecessors. he feels disposed, however, to try his hand at "cutting short the session of the rebel Congress at Richmond," he would better make the experiment, and bring Bennett along to share the fortunes of the enterprise. An editorial correspondence from Libby's warehouse would probably be among the choicest products of the campaign.

Gen. Lee, by a series of manœuvres the most brilliant since the Napole army of 11,000 men, all of whom remained prisoners in our kinds. "The backbone of the rebellion is broken," roared out Bennett. McClellan is utterly unable to relieve his friends, and fails to drive a single corps of our army from its position un in the sea, or in the waters under the earth. Having broken the backbone of the rebellion for the thousandth time, Bennett proceeds, for the thousandth time, to give President Lincoln his advice, as we might suppose Nesselrode to have advised
