Kentucky to be the Slirtlai Pol at. etc. [From the Richmond Examiner, Jan. 16 J For a period uncertain is duration, whether of day*, weeks or month*, the ??a?on commands a truoe. This is the true winter. The first campaign is ended, and a time hu come when it is no longer unsafe to review results sod consider witn candor the sitnatioa of onr M ? . main. Tbe campaign hu been strictly defensive. We have gained nothing, for we have attempted no gain. That we have lost comparatively little of aotual territory during the latter six months is due only to the difficulties of invasion in a country like this, the necessity for time to prepare half a million of soldiers, the courage of the Southern volunteers, and the individual eo ward tee of the Northern mercenaries. It is, however, undeniable that the defensive policy, \ beside* the moral strain on an army that awaits repeated and endless attack, and the exhaustion of % country whi?h is the scene of war, has given the enemy an uninterrupted opportunity to prepare a gigantic host and to arrange it at leisure for the full trial of relative strength when the seasons permit the resumption ef hostilities. While the political leaders ?f the South have been reposing in dreams of approaching peace, and while oar accomplished captains of engineers have been expending their remarkable aeientiia ingenuity in the ereotion of works as wonderful, and almost ss extensive and quite as valuable, aa the Chinese wall, to resist invading forces from a given direction, the enemy have gradually and at leisure gathered up their immense resources aad concentrated their tremendous energies to envelope the confederacy with their armies and fleets, and to pen etrate the interier from some one of many alternative point*. Although they oan new do nothing, they have their programme in perfect order for execution when the weather changes in the ordinary course of the earth round the son, ?nd at this moment we find ourselves in k the face of raparior forces wherever we look. whether to the North, the East or the West, or the Sooth itself. Qen. Sydney Johnson has to train every nerve to prevent the military as i well as geographical heart of the country from slipping oat of his grasp. Oen. J<>ioph Johnson ana Beauregard are held by MoCl&llan on the Potomac as in a rice. A gigantic armament is ready to attempt the descent of the MLsnsrippi, and their fleets on the Atlantic seasoast and the Qulf are too freshly before tbe public attention to require remembrance. Sach are the fruits of a policy purely defensive. Without even the hesitancy which would ocme of a possible interruption, the enemy have thus surrounded the Southern confederacy; and, if permitted to repeat as often as may be desired. their efforts to penetrate its heart, they will necessarily attain the place and the time where success awaits them. There is now but one chance of escape from the net that has been coolly drawn around a* ?it is to eonoentrate our energy on one point and cut ii through; to eon vert our defensive into an offensive war, and transfer the scene of at least a part of these hostilities to the enemy's own country. Situated as we are. it is only possible at on? point?and that is Kentneky. If the forces that we are dispersing to the four corners of the continent every day, to meet new menaces, were ooilected under the hand of Gen. Sydney Johnston, till a column was formed snfficient to enable bim to maneuver with some possibility of success over the plains of that region, he might hurl back the array in front of bim at present, and penetrate the State of Ohio. The attainment of this object would render worthless all the plans of the enemy. The circle of armies would be in the condition of the constrictor whose back has >>Min hpr??*n' t.h? IMDIi nf war vnnM n* trnn. ferred to his own territory, and every one who hu witnessed the ravages of armies in any of the invaded districts of Virginia, knows what a priceless blessing is designated in that brief phrase. He would be attacked beyond his defences. The alarm and confusion of the United States would paraliie its government and its generals, and the entire arrangement, by Which we suffer now and dread great disasters in future, would be immediately reversed. We have pointed to the general commanding the Confederate forces in Kentucky as the person to whom this businesd should be en^ trusted, because he is the only one in position, at this point of the game, to undertake an advance on the enemy with probabilities of sue ceas, even if sufficient force* could be allotted to the otnert. No natural obstacles encumber i bit path u in the cue of Polk and Beauregaru A concentration of troops now employed on tba seaooast and at other pointa where no rital blow ean be either given or reeeived. is all that is necessary to him for effecting this great end. To form such a concentration it will be necessary to leave wme portions of the frontier without other protection than the inhabitants of the neighboring country can afford; bat this will, ia most cases, be found mors than sufficient against attacks that were only intended to withdraw our troops from real points of strategy; and even if otherwise, they most for a brief time be left to take their chance, till tha blow that will relieve them, jith the whole Confederacy, can be (track where only it can be delivered. At present General Johnston confronts superior forces of the enemy under Buell, one of the moat cautious, painstaking and able general* on the other aide. General Bnell haa now, immediately in front of Johnston, an army of eeventy-stx thousand men, and can brine to bear on us, at other given points, thirty thousand more. What the Confederate commander > haa, may not be stated, bnt it is probably enough to hold his present strong position againat anj number that might attack Rim there. Bat the enemy has the choice to attack him there, or to paaa him on either side, get to hia rear and eat off his supplies This be can do by leaving a sufficient army in front of General Johnston, while be oan still send upon the right or left flank a force as large s? he leaves behind. .. That this U the plan of Bnell is now no longer doubtful. He has placed a force of eight tnoosand men at Olasgew, thirty miles to the eat ward of Bowling Green, threatening the rear of General Johnston, while it is withia easy n 1 1J ?? U|/pvt w? ?wv VVUOI pu?U D?ni ID atrong fore* by the enemy, if the pi a a of Baell is suooeaaful, it may result is a great disaster To defeat him, it isabeolutely necessary that mora man should at once be sent to Bowling Green. General Johncton must hare a force sufficient to attack Buell in front, with good chanoe of raoeaaa; and by doing ao will I not only defeat his aahome on the centre of tha confederacy, hat immediately tranafer tha war te the Bute of Ohio, and thus save tha whole Sooth froaa tha great danger of being overrun in tha first fine weather of the coming spring. We are satisfied that,beyond flittering poesibilitiea of a foreign interrention, the only rational hope wa oan entertain of a specl'v termination of this war if to be found tn an I offsasirs campaign aoraaa the Ohio, from ihe point taat maeru jonnaton now defends Tha but lis* of advance imaginable i? to atiriha at tha ritals of (ho North, which are the Lake Stataa, is that through Kentucky.

CO* TBD **ATI *0?T omoi D*F1CIB*0T deficiency in the Pott Office can constitute an J argument for Mob reform. We J earn that the Post Office receipts of the Confederate Government hare fallen off about half a million of dollan, compared for a corresponding period of time undar the old Government, notwithstanding the ezoision of the franking privilege, the faot that since the 1st of Jane fast there umrw dmd mure peuj omoei discontinued than established, and the amount of pnblio and prirate correspondence induced by the war ad incident to the army. Tbe only explicable cause for the Calling off of receipts, when all other causes have conspired to enlarge them, oan be in the excessive rates of Confederate postage; the effect of high postal rates being always to diminish correspondence in more than an inverse proportion to the increased rate, thereby reducing the revenue derived from this branch of the public servioe. TU STABS AIID 9TBIPBS AND BAIL COLUMBIA. ?From the Richmond Dispatch.J An esteemed correspondent and a gallant officer desires to know if the South intend to sire up to the Yankees not only the old flag, but Hail Colombia, and everything good, to which we here as much right as they. As to the flag, we have already given reasons why anything that resembles it is likely to produce collisions in action between our own soldiers, apart from the odium that belongs to what is dow an emblem of an inhuman despotism. It is no longer the flag of the free; it is the flag of the tyrant and oppressor, and is stained With the blood of oar ions and brothers. Let it be banoeforth the winding sheet of the defunct Union As the body without the spirit is dead, so is the United States flair, when it caaa?a to be the emblem of a free Government, dead also. We have no partiality, however, for the Confederate flag. Oar objections to it an that' it resemble* closely the old and bow hideous ensign of despottam. We want none of its unnecessary stars and sickly stripes. The two flags of the two nations ought to be as distinct and different as the character and instincts of the two peoples. As to " Hail Colombia," we are willing to say ;i Hail and Farawell." We think the theme is played out. " Columbia" is no longer a " happy land." Columbia, we begin to susMCt. is a humbuff. We want to have a new country in itx songs as well as its laws. At the same time we would give up nothing to the Yankees that is worth keeping. They are by no means satisfied with any national anthem?, for they have offered a prize for a new one ; but even their money cannot produce the music. Of what value will "Hail Columbia'* | be to a peeple who prostrate " Columbia" at the faint roar ef the British Lion ? Of what value any national anthem to a nation which has neither national spirit nor national honor. Affairs in Kentuckt?Tab Rout of Humphrey Marshall ?The Mt. Sterling (Ky.) Whig of Jan. 15th givee the following details of the recent ensasement between Col. Gar field and Humphrey Marshall in that State : It appears that Col. Oarfield himself headed the dO0 eavalry, and with this force came upon the enemy two miles above Prestonburg. When Marshall discovered the presence of the cavalry be posted himself on a range of hills in the woods and opened fire upon them with his small cannon, of which he had four, but which were s? badly managed that they only plowed the sand away off from onr men. With nia 900 cavalry Oarfield fought the 3,000 of Marshall's men for fall two hoars, at the end of whioh time his looked-for reinforcement* of infantry came gallantly to the rescae. The battle now lasted with increased vigor for two hoars more, at which time night came, and fighting oeased by mutual consent. A? iV -I- ?fit H vsur uicu Bicpi uu vueir arms wiva vue cxpeetatioo of renewing the contest in the morning, but when morning came it was discovered the enemj had fled m the most rapid haste. The enemy's killed and wounded was estimated at between two and three hundred. Our loss was but slight. Immediate pursuit was somewhat delayed bj the non-arrival of the supplies, but before Mr. Craig had left the boats had come up, and the pursuit was about being renewed. Information had come in that the enemy was rapidly making its war in a complete state of panic and disorganisation ,into Virginia. From a private letter just received, we learn that the first skirmish mentioned, which re suited in the retreat of Marshall from Paintville, was a moat dashing exploit on oar part. Oar cavalry, the Second Virginia, met a rebel cavalry force backed ap by infantry. The impetaoaity of oar charge was each that in a moment the rebel'a cavalry center was broken, and the infantry only saved from destruction by a rapid retreat into the woods. For some time there waa a desperate sword to sword rencounter between the cavalry.
