Mr. Lincoln professes, in a late speech, to hail with great delight the employment of negro troops by the Confederacy as the last card of desperation and exhausted resources. What does he think of the employment of them by himself years ago? What was that an indication of? What does the intense eagerness manifested at this moment to enlist negroes in the Federal service mean? --To our minds, it means that the white population of the North will not bear any farther draft for this war, and that the North is practically, for fighting purposes, as much exhausted as the South.
