the situation in which it stood two years ago — when Donelson surrendered, and New Orleans and Memphis were taken; when McClellan had an army of 250,000 men behind the Potomac, and Johnston had less than 40,000 to face him; when the volunteer systemn listening to Buncombe speeches, instead of passing a conscription law. Assuredly, it is not so bad now as it was when McClellan lay around this city with an army of 150,000 men; when every hour a disaster which might throw it open to his advance wis "over the battle ments (!) of Washington." Have the loud boasts and confident predictions that heralded the march of McClellan upon this city been forgotten? Is nothing remembered of that famous number of a Yankee periodical which contained a pision, and thus it will continue to rise, as fast as fresh occasions present themselves. For our own part, we never have doubted of the issue, even when McClellan was around this city, and that, we take it, was the darkest hour of the Confederacy.
