Gen. Lee, in his proclamation to the people of Maryland, which we published yesterday, declares that his purpose is to protect th object in invading Maryland was to raise the Stars and Stripes, and to call upon the people North and South to rally to Gen. Lee, and aid in putting down Lincoln's Administration and restoring the Union. The Herald assorts that this project has aidlightest doubt that there is already in the Northern States the nucleus of a political party ready to strike hands with Gen. Lee at the first favorable opportunity for the accomplishment of this object There are members of Congress who would vote to
elieved by many that a large portion of McClellan's army is on the South side of the Potomac, while Baltimore papers of a late date declare that it is. The display of tents on this side of the river may be a ruse of the young Napoleon to deceive Gen. Lee while he is reorganizing the "grand army." A great many of the "boys" declare they have seen enough of Maryland, and for the remainder of the war are perfectly willing to fight on Virginia soil. They say the women and children sneered at them, and it was in few localities that Confederate money would be taken at all. In some cases pickets and couriers were shot by Union citizens while the army was falling back. Time has firmly established it that General Lee's campaign in Maryland was a brilliant victory for the Southern cause. If the army of McClellan had not been severely handled by the "rebels," with that army which greatly outnumbered us, he could have felt little hesitancy in marching directly into and occupying the l

that instrument which Lincoln has not perpetrated and surpassed. To denounce a defunct king of England for deeds which an American President is eulogized for performing, is an enterprise which no ordinary mortal would undertake in this weather. These are the circumstances which must add to the difficulty of such a performance. Such for example as the fact the "the day they celebrate" dawned from the sky of that Virginia which they are now seeking to rend and devious; that it was Richard Henry Lee, delegate from Virginia, who, by instructions from his constituents, rose in that dreadful hour, and moved the resolution of Independence; that it was Thomas Jefferson of Virginia who drafted the Declaration whose anniversary they celebrate; that it was George Washington, of Virginia, whose mighty chieftainship made that Declaration good.
