e question arising upon these facts and contingencies is, whether we shall leave our little army beyond Lewisburg to contend with greatly superior numbers until General Lee shall succeed in penetrating towards Clarksburg and in threatening; Rosencranz's rear: or, whether, while General Lee is pushing on towards Clarksburg, General General Lee is pushing on towards Clarksburg, General Floyd should not be sufficiently reinforced to enable him to assume offensive operations again, recross the Ganley, and, in concert with General Wise, drive the enemy down the Kanawha. Our Government has become so committed to the operations in Western Virginia, that it cannot afford now to let them hang fire. The enemy wouldirginia is delivered of the presence of the invader, the idea of a strong Southern disaffection will continue to retain a lodgement in the mind of the world. If Gen. Lee. with his comparatively large force, shall succeed in penetrating to Clarksburg, driving back the enemy's General, Reynold. with a force as large as, or largerth
Secretaryship of War. --The Hon. L. Pope Walker, Secretary of War, has resigned that post. Who his successor will be is variously conjectured. There is a considerable outside pressure from Richmond circles in behalf of General Robert. E. Lee. Mention is also made of Major General Poln Still other names are prominently brought forward. Both in Great Britain and in this country the post of War Minister has always been regarded as one of those great political offices, requiring to be filled with some reference to public sentiment. We have no idea that President Davis will fill the appointment upon any other theory.--If this be the fact, then it would seem to follow as a matter of course, that if a proper man be found, the selection will be made from some State or great district of country not now represented in the Cabinet. In that event, the public will naturally expect that Tennessee, Arkansas, or at least the region of which Memphis is the centre and emporium, would be the o

The West and Northwest. --We have little from our forces in the Northwest, and ting from those in the West. That in the er is in the midst of a struggle disputing the possession of the soil with the minions of the Washington Tyranny. There have in probability occurred before this one or more bloody battles. The public is full of anxiety to hear whatever there is to hear; the hundreds in this region, who have relatives in the armies of Lee, and Floyd, and are pained at the delay in the transession of intelligence from them. We trust that the Department will establish at once a communication between the metropolis in their camps. It would be grateful to the people, and very much benefit our cause. A short telegraph announces that it was at the North that Floyd and Wise could effect a junction, and fall upon Cox. We hardly know what to anticipate. The of the enemy we do not know; but we know the character of our brave soldiers and their leaders, and we are satisfie
