When our fathers periled life, fortune, and sacred honor in our first war of independence, was it an empty boast, or was it the stern resolve of freemen, who knew their rights and dared to defend them? The long war of the Revolution culminated at length in victorious triumph on these very plains of Yorktown. These frowning battlement is on the heights of York are turned, in this second war of liberty, against the enemies of our country. You breathe the air and tread the soil consecrated by the presence and the heroism of our patriotic sires.

McClellan upon Sharpsburg. Our readers have been so long accustomed to McClellan's peculiar strain of mendacity, that they will not be surprised to hear that his last effort has surpassed all his former.

Lord Palmerston has been making speeches at Winchester. He refrained from allusion to American affairs. It is reported that two Confederate privateers are in the Mediterranean, and they have already destroyed a dozen American vessels. It is said that Semmes commands one of them. Mr. Gladstone has made another speech at York, England, in which he again alluded to the affairs of America. He said, among other things: "I think we must believe that the longer this terrific struggle continues the more doubtful becomes the future of America, the more difficult will it be for her to establish that orderly and legal state of things which now, it is too plain, is for the moment at least superseded, in which we saw and were accustomed to witness with delight at once the best accurity for the extension of her material prosperi
