General Pope. This officer, who Lincoln has determined to turn upon Virginia, is a descendant of Virginia stock. He is of the Kentucky Pope family, which emigrated from Virginia. It may be all the more grateful to the malignant Government at Washington in ordering him to Virginia, that this officer is thus descended. But the fact will, if it have any effect at all, only nerve the arm of our gallant and true Southern men to strike the surer and heavier blow when they meet him.
