. Let vengeance be taken for all that has been done, until retribution itself shall stand aghast.--This is the country of the smooth-spoken, would be gentleman, McClellan. He has caused a loss to us, in Virginia, of at least 30,000 negroes, the most valuable property that a Virginian can own. They have no negroes in Pennsylvania.omac and the bay. One effect which the invasion of Pennsylvania would have we have not yet alluded to, and it is the most important of any. It would compel McClellan to follow Lee and to fight a battle outside of his entrenchments. General Lee would have his own choice of ground and his own time to fight. He could lead him him until he found a position in which he cold give battle with advantage, and then he halted. By pursuing a similar course in Pennsylvania, Gen.

We can afford to view with supreme indifference the fulminations of Secretary Stanton. If Scott, with his swarming legions, at Manassas, could not disturb the composure of Richmond; if McClellan, with his numerous army and heavy artillery, four miles from Richmond, could not displace one stone in our streets, we can permit a Yankee Secretary of War to fire off his gas twenty pounder at the safe distance of New York, without proposing to capitulate. If Richmond is not worth a twenty pound shot, the Yankees have spent a great many millions, and fired off thousands of cannon, compared with which a twenty pounder is a pop-gun, to capture that worthless object.
