United States (United States) (search for this): article 1
ry in the outset of a war. Who could imagine any great European power, boasting the immense resources of the North in men and munitions, which after one great defeat could not be able to take the field again in six months? It is true that the United States have since organized an immense army, numbering, they pretend, two hundred thousand in Washington, and six hundred thousand in all, thoroughly drilled and disciplined, and provided with an enormous amount and endless variety of warlike weaponc. But, incentive as it is towards its enemies, it has been a huge millstone around the neck of its friends. It has eaten out the very vitals of the Treasury and bankrupted the Yankee nation. The battle of Manassas has thus demoralized the United States in both purse and honor; and, if we have patience and perseverance, will yet compel it to succumb to the manifest destiny of the establishment of Southern independence.

Results of the battle of Manassas. Six months ago last Tuesday the great battle of Manassas was fought. If we may regret that it was not followed up by the capture of Washington, which would have fallen into our hands without resistance, it is some consolation to reflect that the memorable Southern victory of the 21st July administered a blow to the enemy from which they have not recovered to this day. It has been productive of results such as have rarely flowed from a single great victory in the outset of a war. Who could imagine any great European power, boasting the immense resources of the North in men and munitions, which after one great defeat could not be able to take the field again in six months? It is true that the United States have since organized an immense army, numbering, they pretend, two hundred thousand in Washington, and six hundred thousand in all, thoroughly drilled and disciplined, and provided with an enormous amount and endless variety of warlike weapons
