Splendid Strategy. The operations of General Jackson, which resulted in the capture of Winchester, formed a series of movements and combinations which have not been surpassed since the days of Napoleon. Jackson was at Woodstock. Banks, with his main body, was at Strasburg, where he was strongly entrenching himself. He bed a strong detachment at Front Royal Jackson made a demonstration against Strasburg with 5,000 men, who advanced half way to that point from Weekstock. With the rest of his army he suddenly turned to his right, fell upon the enemy at Front Royal, utterly routed him, and took, two regiments. Banks, at Strasburg, hearing the firing, stampeded for Winchester. Jackson, however; was too quick for him. He immediately act out from Front Royal, suspecting what would happen, to cut Banks off from Winchester. The parties met at the junction of the roads at Stephensburg. Jackson out the column in two Part fled to Winchester and part returned towards Strasburg. Jacks
nto, they in like manner clashing against each other with unmitigated fury — all of which, with the clatiering of the horses hoofs "upon the stony street," serve to produce an effect so horribly frightful that our faces are fever blanched with terror, and we instinctively pull our sun bounets over our faces and stop our ears with our fingers, that we may shut out as much as possible the terrifying and humiliating noise. Ah! they are truly a brave set, and look so much like conquerors. Napoleon himself could not have borne his "blushing honors" more gracefully than do these victorious Yankees ! And, in truth, they have reason to look like victory for did they not perform the unparalleled exploit of talling the city of Huntsville, with accounts of which all the Northern papers are teeming? A city strongly fortified with the most impenetrable brick-houses, daring women, undaunted children, and furious bulidogs, the whole surrounded by a natural parapet of earth, stones, and giant t
her countries, how can England, France, and Spain resist their dominion? From the former, aided (if need be) by Russia, they will take her American possessions, including the fisheries, whose competition they have, from the last, Cuba and St. Domingo; from all, the markets of the world. For, strive as they may, never will those powers be able to obtain elsewhere cotton so good and cheap as we can furnish to them. Mexico, of course, will be theirs in time — an empire far greater than ever Napoleon could have attumed to. See, in contrast to this, what assisting us will give to the European powers.--All we ask is recognition, and the raising of the blockade, that we may receive your manufactures (including munitions of war) in return for our crops. Our independence once established, the power of the North is broken, and she can no more be dangerous. We offer to England and France our coasting trade, our law material in exchange for their manufactures, and to Canada the market fo

It has long been a complain, that once in the ranks always in the ranks. No matter how gallant a private might behave, it is argued that he never was promoted. New, we cannot say whether this be true or not. But one thing is certain, that in the future the rule of Napoleon which made his army the best the world ever saw, is to be the rule of our army-Several of Napoleon's Fleed Marshals rose from tire ranks. Undoubtedly there are many men in the ranks who fire worthy of being made officers, and there are many officers who ought to be in the ranks. This order, if greadily followed out. will do justice to the service. Let every man recollect that the road to distination is now open to every soldier, whether private or officer. All experience attacts that a
