VIEWS OF THE AMERICAN WAR. Mr RmwII'i Letter t* the Ltidia Tibm. [From tbc Special Cor. of the London Timet ] Waihijotox, Aug. 5.?"Letus only bold on till Oetober and we are aafe." That, or aomething like It, waa said to me over and over again in the South bj men who play no inconaiderable part in the myatery drama of the Confederatea. And when I aaked oae of tbeae gentleman, more than two moatha ago, what ebanoe there waa of the North giving the South all that time, I waa answered almoat in theee worda, "We are bound to go to the aaaiatanoe of Virginia. The whole of the northern frontier abounds In good poaitiona, which can be fed by the rail xrom the South. The Abolitioniata will come and give ua battle. We are eertain to whip them if they attack na, and the North will then learn itcan't atonoe overrun na, aa it fanoied. The leadera will pause. There will be a reaction up there. We will work all the harder and all the better for oar victory. Drilliag our men and conaaiidating our resources. The northern cities will become discontented. Foreign nationa will aak wb?n the cotton porta are to be open. The North -will bare no reply. We ahall be better able to ?.ht l_ 1 -U.I1 U- I M^uk IU WI VUBU ?t O auail W W U|iik IU June. Every week's delay will add to tbe complication* and weakness of tbe North, mod the end of the year will find them farther from their aim than ever?divisiona in their oouneils. even disturbances in their populations, while we, Inspired by the approacn of success, will exhibit increasing energy and unanimity.'* A part of the programme has been already accomplished, but it does not follow that the remainder of the prophecy will be fulfilled with as much nicety So far the result of the action of the 21st has been the prolongation of the war in America. The effeot it may have had abroad will be known in a few days more It is plain now that the Confederates were not only really unable to pursue their advantage, but that they were not at first aware of its extent. They suffer from deficient transport, and are better prepared for defence than attack. Their army was almost as mueh 'scared,' to use an English word in an American way, as the Federalists, if the reports are to be believod of confusion, wavering and retreat in their ranks?and ef the passionate exertions of Che officers, as well as of their losses. In faet, the Confederates stand before tbe world stripped of a good deal of the strength of which they nnut?1 in tntual nnmlwn' unrl it ia * twif cover to their weakneM to put forward the assertion that only a small portion of their force was engaged, when it is notorious that they had pent to all quarters for reinforcements, aad, above all, when it is considered that, by using all tt?e men at their disposal, they could have forced the mass of the Federalist army to surrender prisoners of war, and have occupied the oapital. Their operations up to this time indicate hesitation and want of vigor; but it is jast possible they may be preparing to strike some great blow. It is given out that General Beauregard has gone for a short time to Charleston. Qen. Johnston has not shown in any force in front of his old position about Harper's Ferry, nor has he threatened the Federalists under Gen- Banks, who are covering the passage of the river from the Maryland side. Before Hampton and Fortress Monroe there is an equal absence of offensive demonstrations. The secession oavalry and pickets occupy the Alexandria road, and the eommu nioationa leading by Vienna and Fairfax Court House towards Manassas, at a considerable distance from the outposts and lines of the Federalists, and there is leaa of the wild, guerilla sort of work between the two armies than was formerly the oase, but the attitude of the Confederates is not that of a very confident or aggressive foroe. One does not hear either of the vigorous advices to drive the enemy from the sacred soil of Virginia, which were ao rife, nor of the hot menace8 to take Washington, nor even of the earnest promises to liberate Maryland and other afflicted portions of the slaveholding sisterhood. There may be Kltay in this, aod, notwithstanding the growlj opposition of one or two papers in the 8outh to the men and measures of the war, the infiuenoe of Mr. Jefferson Davis is quite sufficient to induce the press to keep its peace, or adopt any tone he may suggest io furtherance of the oommon cause. They can organise a transKrtorops in time. . There are plenty of excelot mules in the South if the planters can in their patriotism submit to ruin and send them from the fields. Horses in abundance oan do doubt be procured from the southwest and smuggled oat of Kentucky. Twenty-five brass field pieoes, one rifled gun thrown 301b. shot and shell from small bore, and perhaps several other guns not enumerated, captured at Manassas, will go some war to make up for the want of field artillery, under which the Confederates were laboring, and the quantity of ammunition of all sorts which fell into their hands must strengthen them in their weakest point. The thousands of muskets loft on tbo field will bo bo indifferent acquisition,and thej bare boon already applied to arm men who were not well provided previously with amall arms, while whole regiments are made happj by the blankets,overcoats, canteens,knapsacks, and accoutrement* of all kinda distributed among then, to the great relief of the Confederate Treasury. Meanwhile, the army of the United State* is undergoing a complete reorganisation in the faoo of the enemy. The old army of volunteers and three months' men may be looked upon as annihilated, or at all events dissolved, it would be carious to ascertain how many of them will re-enlist, even under different officers The affair at Manassas not only destroyed McDowell's army, bat it gave a heavy blow and groat disparagement to the very spirit of the Ameriean system, by which men were placed in positions they had no fitness for, and large masses of armed men were assembled whom it were delusion to oonsider as an army. Mr. Davis saw the mischief long ago, and br special aet of Congress of the Confederate States at Montgomery he seised the power of appointing officers. It may seem strange ifeat the soldiers should not feel proper reopeot for the men they had selected to oommaad them, but the fact is that snob a mode of eeieotion,particularly in tbe lower grades, waa iojarioua to all real discipline. U any offioer i aria tod on obeying the rules end regulations gC the army, ho waa recorded by hia nominator* u an an grateful fellow, who wu using the Kwer they had given hia to Tex and harraaa Mn, and ho, too often in a spirit of retaliation and in ignorance of the proper mean* of enforcing a respect to wbioQ personally, port ape, he had little claims, resorted to gross language, abuse and harsh treatment, and incurred tbe positive oontempt and hatred of men who took little eare to oonooal their feelings. It is hard to teach Americans discipline Their regular army has boon for tbe most part composed of Germans and Irish. The people are averee to obedienee on principle; and even ehildren, as I have observed particularly in the North, are less manageable?''biddable" as mothers say?than in tne old-fashioned *000117 where the fifth commandment U held in respect. Muter Pickle and Miu Pert ere fond enough of laying " I won't" ell over the world, bat tbe breed U unusually large in Ameriea, end disobedience peeeee for independence. And, es tbe ebild is tbe father of tne men, ao Sovereign Smith, on prinelple, rebels against obeying the order of Borereigu Brown; fcieks in his inner men, reoeleitretes morally end even physiosllj, end only snooeeds by the preesure of e self-spplied dureeee. "Sergeant, will yon oome end lAbk at this man's pees," called out a sentry at the Long Bridge the ether day; "do yon think I am going to shout myself hoarse fer yoe?" And when tbe sergeent did arrive, the sentry, who had been sitting down when I eame up, ased bad language.|and threatened to report him' Yesterday evening, as I was riding through Georgetown, I saw an officer "fall in his mea to go ou some patrol or relief. They were drawn ap by the side of the street 'What bare yoo p* in that bottle?" said the officer to one of hit men. "Whiskey." "Let's have a drain," quoth the affable subaltern. "Don't take it ail, then," replied the proprietor, producing from hi* harersaok the black bottle, which had been detected by the eagl< eye of his anperior. The offioer held it np u the light, ganged the oontents, smelt th< month, and then took a Ions pull, which wbj followed by a sounding smack of the lips, and a "fust rate" of great intensity. The bottle was restored; then "Shoulder a?m*?bj th< right?wheel?quick march," and away wenl bottle, officer, and men. It would be very unftir to assert that suoh officers are commoc and suoh practioes usual; but that there ii on qufstions of discipline an extraordinary deviation in principle, sentiment and practice in the American feople from those of any other military people, requires no proof when we see Colonel Richardson, iz an offioial document respecting the oonduot 01 his troops at Manassas, accusing his senioi offioer, Colonel Miles, who was in oommand ol a brigade, of being drunk and incapable on th< field, and Colonel Miles in reply publishing i statement, which amieara in all th? n<?ni. pers, in which he says he wai not drunk, and pray* God to forgive hit accuser. Thej will b< aught by experience, and the sweet uses o; adversity?bitter to them?will force them t< bend to discipline in order that they maj oonquer; and if they desire to carry on th< campaign, and escape the Caudine Forks, thej must stoop, as people free, intelligent, and brave as they are have done, to the thrall ol order and obedience. That much can be don< bv the judicious exercise of authority in en. forcing military rules and regulations among them, as amon^ the rest of mankind, isconclU' sively shown in the great changes and im provements effected in the army of Washing ton, and, above all. in the citv itself, by younj General Mgplellan, who bids fair to be th< next President, if his success is at all cowmen ?urate with the enormous praise and flattery which, much against his will, are forced dowi his throat. Before his nomination the street) of the capital presented a spectacle the like oi which waa probably never seen in any civilized city. A routed, demoralised army, with jusl sufficient equipment to enable them to be i terror to civilians, and to inflict death and wounds in their drunken quarrels, crowded th< thoroughfares, formidable only to those whoa they were intended to protect. The hotels and bars were filled with officers whose regiment! were in a State of flomnleta di?nrtr?ni??tlni? The small tradespeople trembled for theii little stores. Suddenly oat cornea an order which I give entire, leat it might be said the words I hare used exaggerate the condition ol affairs at the period in question. (Here Mr. Russell quotes Qen. McClellan'i General Orders No. 2. prohibiting officers and men frequenting the Washington hotels, etc.] [to bk cohtihdsd. j Rait?What Cause* It? Eds. Prairie Farmer :?Under the above head in last week's paper, E. S. N., asks for the cause, prevention and cure of red or leal rust on wheat. I believe it is oaused bv high winda breaking the fibre of the leaf and letting the sap ooxe out, and coming in contact witn the atmosphere, forms the red rust. If this is si, belts or timber would be a preventive, (the trees would be good whether tney favored the wheat or not) and I weuld invite my brother farmers to note the appearance of this rust ic coming years and see if it does not make ita appearanoe soon after on* or more days of high wind. F. D. Lot*. In many instances which hare been brought to oar notice this season, fields protected oy groves of timber, or elevated ground, from the severe wind (at the time the rust attacked the wheat generally) were and *r?> entirely exempt from the rust. It is now generally conceded that rust is a parasite, and the severe heating wind probably assisted to break the epiderinh and afford a lodgment for the parasite. Wc oopv the following from ' Klippart's wheat plant." Rust is a mushroom of the family of the uridines. It is devoloped upon both surfaoes ol the leaves, upon the stubble and upon the heads of the graminsB with the appearance of little oval point*, pulverulent, projeoting, at first yellowish, and afterward becoming black. The little streak which it at first forms in parallel lines at the side of the fibres, finally spread and joining, form large patches. When the rust attacks the grain only feebly, it does not appear to be very injurious to it, but when it is considerable, it oocasions serious losses Among all the graminte wheat appears to b< the favorite of rust. If the streaks formed by the rust be attentively examined upon the stalk, but particularly upon the leaf of wheat, the epidermis will be found_split in every instanoe, and it will not 06 aimoult to perceive that the sap extravasated by thla split givea birth to the mushroom, or at least that it aervea aa a receptacle to the sporea of thia mushroom, raised from th< freund by the raina, carried through the ail y the winds, or, what is perhaps more probable, absorbed in the earth with the nourishing juioes of the plant. It haa been remarked thai the ruat ordinarily shows itaelf when a verj hot sun auddenly auoeeeda rains which hav< been somewhat prolonged. It ia at the time when the evaporation of the water left on tha stocks and leaves, going on too rapidly, oocasiona cracks in the epidermis or vitreoua varniah, whioh covers all parts, and tbus permit! the sap to defleetfrom ita ordinary oourse, that oireumstanoes favorable to the development ol the mushroom are presented to ita spores, whether they oome from the interior or exterior. From the time, alao, when a stalk oi wheat,i? attacked by rust in a somewhat serious manner, it begina to languish; ita leaves quioklv begins to dry up, and when the rains are infrequent, the malady proceeds from the atalk to the head, whioh also soon turna red. The huak er nearest envelope of the grain then drying and adhering to thia. soon oocasions iti diAAmnOiitioiL HA ITIIIAK K* th? ed bT It a* that whioh ii maintained by the streaks of the mushroom fixed upon itsglumes. It will not b? rare it theae dun to tee fields of wheat produce leu than half what thej would have done witbont thia aooident. The more, then, that beat and moiitnre permit* the ?pornlee or semimform germs of ths rust to attach themselves to the (talks of ths grain, and develop themselves there, the greater a ill be the damage it may cause. There arc oertaln places, aa in South Carolina, for example, where the cultivation of wheat had to be abandoned, because the natural humidity ol the soil, oonjoined with the mista, which prevail ao frequently in that oountry, too greatlj favor the development of rust. On the contrary, it has been remarked that, in the vioinitj of the sea, or in greunds improved by means ol lime or leacbea ashes, or manured with ses plants, the rust never exhibit# itself in sucfa abundance as to cause any considerable damage. The following seems to be the reaaon: There ia found npon moat of the graminse and particularly upon wheat, aoertain shining Tarnish abeolatelj of the tame material as glass. Moat commonly this vitreous material terminates the edges of the leaves by little teeth, resembling a aaw of extreme fineness, hat always oapable of serstching the fingers of thoe? who oarelessly amass themselves by frequently rubbing theee leaves in the direction or theii length. The greater than, the thickness of this glassy layer, and the stronger the stalk, the greater will be its resistance to the moisture 01 other atmospheric infiuenoes, whioh might eauso it to crack and present false iasues to the sap upon whieh the rust attaches itself. And It is imagined (oonceived) that thislaysr of vitreous material will be stronger in proportion a? the soil itself sontatus, or. as are furnished arI tificial ly. the elements of its com position. 11 | is well known that to produceglaaa, aandia used i with lime and ashes, whioh are melUd togeth' or by heat, although each one of these subs tancm U scaiealy foible ifheato4 alone. If, then, i by mixing with the aoil, lime, ashes, etc there be juiced at the disposition of the met rial* whioh enter into the composition of tl ; vitreous material with whioh it i? covered, will neoeeaarily absorb a greater quantit, and thereby place itself In better oondition resist the rust. The sea-weeds whioh by the decomposition produoe soda in quantity, whi< also enters into the composition of glass wi produce the same effect. Thai, too, it hasbex remarked, that the rnst has shown itself muc more rarely in silieioos or sandy groands. The rast is the lea injurious to grain tl nearer it has arrived at maturity at the tin it is attacked by it. The damage which it r ceives from the suppression of its nourishmei which it (the roet) intercepts to appropriate to itself, or whion it leads away from its ord nary channels, it (the grain) suffers the mot it has great need of this nourishment.
