Meade has already fulfilled thelaim a victory. That victory had yet to be won. Whether there was more fighting, depended upon Gen Lee's calculations, not only of the chances of success, but of obtaining afterwards the rewards of were only militiamen — and that French was hurrying his men up to Gettysburg from Harper's Ferry, Lee, unless he made one more, and that a decisively successful onslaught upon the Federals, probably ermined by the result of the battle of July 3d, and on it would depend whether Washington fell or Lee retired into Virginia with the loss of many men, but with a prodigious quantity of valuable stores and plunder. Lee cannot afford to stand still, and if he found Meade too strong for his army to attack again, he would get away from the sword of the Federal militia and volunteers which were gath

Lee's aids was captured by the enemy, under circumstances annoying to us to say the least. There were letters from President Davis and Adjutant General Cooper in the list. The enemy made a great noise about them, and pretended to give their purport. They represented the President as regretting Gen. Lee's advance into Pennsylvania, intimating that it was made under the mistaken impression that the interval between the time of the disch publish it this morning.

Once more the soil of Virginia is desecrated by the polluting steps of Yankee hirelings, seeking our general destruction. To Gen.
