Getting a Glimpse of the truth. A Northern journal, which zealously supports the Administration, in remarking on the probabilities of a war between the Federal Government and the seceded States, remarks as follows: Is it not too hastily assumed that the contest now opening, though it may be sharp, will be short? The prediction is adventured that the South will miserably fail for want of capital, credit, food, the means of warfare, or even of subsistence. No doubt the people of that section will suffer many things. But war may be carried on when nothing else can be. While the seven years war was raging in Prussia, Macaulay says, "the coin was debased, the civil functionaries were left unpaid, in some provinces the civil government altogether ceased to exist. But there were still rye bread and potatoes, there were still lead and gunpowder, and while the means of sustaining and destroying life remained Frederick was determined to fight it out to the very last."
