Lincoln wanted a tiger to suck blood, and he got him. He wanted a man to gain victories on paper, and Pope had just proved himself to be that man. His report to Halleck, that he had captured 15,000 of Beauregard's army, and 20,000 stand of arms, when he had not taken a man or a musket, stands alone in the history of lying.--It left him without a rival in that respectable art.

Pope having so well succeeded in the manufacture of his lies while in the West has been transferred to the army of Virginia, to cope, if possible with McClellan, who has earned the reputation of being the greatest falsifier of the age.
