Gen. Lee Aroused.

--The correspondent of the Charleston Mercury, writing from this city, says:

‘ In his congratulatory order Gen. Lee calls the victory "glorious"--a very strong term for him to use. I am satisfied that old man Bob's back was up as it never was before. You see both his arms were gone — Jackson wounded and Longstreet away — and he was forced to the ungraceful process of kicking "Fighting Joe" out of his path. This made him mad, really mad, for the first time since the war began; and so when he had settled Sedgwick, he rushed back through a terrible storm to finish with Hooker. He was in for blood, and no mistake. Hooker, delighted at the excuse of a freshet, had departed.
