The military schemes of the Federal, though discussed in scores of newspapers, are even now unintelligible. The supposition most favorable to the Government at Washington is, that the tactics of the last few months were but a concession to the fancy of the people or the ambition of various leaders, and that there I contest is now about to commence; for the campaigns of Fremont and Nelson, and one or two others, tone her with the expeditions to Hatteras and Port. Hotel, seem to have been dictated by no settled military policy. In the Western States no great advantage has been gained by either side and the armies, if they can be called so, are going into winter quarters, the one to the north and the other to the south of a desolated region, the inhabitants of which have for the most part deserted it to dwell with whichever side has their sympathies.

The war in Kentucky and Missouri being interrupted, every regiment the Confederates can obtain they will bring to Manassas, in order to make good the defence of their positions on the Potomac. Here, apparently, the great battle must some day be fought, and it is probable that, from the pressure on General McClellan an advance may take place even during the winter, if the weather sets in. On the result of this campaign we have no desire to speculate. The Confederates are inferior in the important matter of arms; for though they have been doing their best to manufacture rifle for themselves, the number produced can be but small in comparison with that which the Federal have obtained from abroad. On the other hand, they are said to have artillery in sufficient strategic defend their positions, whi

If this be the case, then all the flea bites on the corps will be disregarded, and the Confederates must be crushed by advancing through their country and conquering it mile by mile.

"A year ago no people would have been more ready that the Americans to acquirable in these conclusions. They had not only the fate of Napoleon before their eyes out they might call to mind the annuals of war on their own continent. If they have not too completely surrounded the events of the Revolution and of 1812 with a mist of fable they must recognize that their main defence in both gates was the extent of their country, by which troops were worn out by the very advances which were the prize of victory. Yet the history of foreign countries and of their own has been without warning for the Northern Americans. All through the Federal States the people have been for months intent upon reproducing the priors of George III, and Napoleon. From the Atlantic coast to regions far west of the Mississippi,
