The North, as one man, was to rise, and to go forth, to see and to conquer; in stead of doing so, however, they have risen but have gone forth to sit down again, or run away. "Bull's Run," or, more properly speaking, "Bullies' Run," will forevermore be the bite noir that will haunt North American reputation. In my travels in America, and in my lectures to her people, I ridiculed the sell constituted Generals, Colonels and The Northern volunteers in America are "time men." It is the national falling to love boast and a bottomless display. To prove this "Major Sturgeon" propensity we have only to read Mr. Russell's remarks on the entire regiments who ran off from Bull's Run to the tune of the enemy's untasted fire, and refused to fight, unlike their boxer Heenan, because their time was called.

This blame attaches not to the South; she has done all she said she would do; she secedes, and stands on the defensive and on her just right to sever from the Union when she feels that her interests are neglected or actively assailed T

he democratic custom in England to say that America was based. In America there are no veterans or unattached officers of the regular army to lead the volunteers; in England we have them to any extent. The art of war was never studied by American amateurs; the American system ran entirely on trade. Volunteer generals and colonels kept hotels and edited depraved newspapers, and though the liberty of the press was once a transatlantic boast, it was found to be as empty a beast as taking Canada or whipping the world, putting an end to secession in a twelvemonth, &c., for it is on their mischievous and licentious press, that the President has made his most active war, and there only has the North come up to a given point of useful determination. To conclude this hasty reply to the vacillating and trimming humor of the Times, I can but remind my readers that even now, with the enormous mileage covered by the States in revolt, and the Northern army whipped, in the late reply to t

To conclude this hasty reply to the vacillating and trimming humor of the Times, I can but remind my readers that even now, with the enormous mileage covered by the States in revolt, and the Northern army whipped, in the late reply to the benign letter of the Autocrat of Russia, the Federal Government tries to blink the fact, by jocosily stating, even now, that "the Union" is only "in danger" The Union is gone, and, as I have ever prognosticated, it will never be restored unless the North consents to swallow a dessert or dirt, and leaves the property of the South unmolested. The war is waged on and based on an attack on property in general. The slaves form only a portion of their property. The Times at one time tried. to give it the character of a war simp
