Udfd fFrom the Richmond Whig of Friday.] Theee are ticjee to try men'* aonla. The oonaeaaancea of a defensire policy, and of the folly of transferring the war to the valley of the Misaiaaippi. where the enemv have their beat fighter*, instead of attacking them in their central and moat tender point?Pennatl ania?bj aggressive war, are now upon ua. We have permitted them, without in'.ermption, to mature their programme of aurrounaing and eompreaaing ua, which waa announced more than eight months ago. What our ^orernment haa done to meet the iasue, beaidea wrangling with popular generals and piddling over petty ioba, the Lord only knowa. Judging by reaulu ao far, it ia the moat lamentable failure in history, and auggeata to the reflecting mind that the moat aignal service which that government ceo render to the country is tke surrender of the helm to abler and better hands. In view of the put, tho present and probable future, the pageant of to-morrow is a bitter mockery and a miserable compensation for the ruin of a free people. A child with a bauble, an old man with a young wife, are partial illustrations of the deplorable folly. For eight menths the people have been hoping and confiding. Never enough can be said of the ardor, the disinterestedness and devotion of the southern neople, With one heart, they have offered all t ney have for the common cause ?the cause of life, liberty and happiness; but there has been no response from the authorities at all in proportion to the outburst from the popular heart. The dreary inaction of the last L_ - ..J - 1 iiLumcr BUU miuiuu, IUO 'iiacaac ouu woanucb? of camp life, and the wasting away of the finest army ever assembled, were endured, if not with patience, at least without any boisterous complaint against the government. If confidence was shaken, the hope still survived that our rulers were laboring dilgently, wisely and v effectively for our defence. The result is before us. Does patriotism dictate, does it justify longer ailenoe? Are we privileged to fold our arms in mute admiration of some reputed great man, while the ouuntry, I under his guidance, is going with railroad speed to destruction7 There is no unkind feeling in any quarter, that we are aware of, towards Mr Davis; so far from it, all the manP ifestations of the laat twelve months prove the contrary. But the conviction is general?outtide of official circles it may be said to be universal?tnai no one man can perlorm til the varied and difficult function*, civil and military, of this government. The mysterious, do-nothing policy, which has been attended only with disaster, hu substituted distrust and apprehension for the hope and confidence which previously prevailed. It is this lose of confidence which presents the most gloomy phase to our cause The men and the policy that have without necessity involved us in our preeeut troubles, are they on whom we have to rely for extrication Confidence can only be regained, and our deliverance achieved by a change of men or a change of poliey. The crisis is too serious* to mince words. Perhans we all have committod an ?rrnr ? nH hare contributed to delude the Administration by holding cur tongues, or only indulging the honeyed accents of praise. The disposition has been great among all classes to look on the bright aide of everything?to gloze over what we did not approve, and hope for the best from k what we did not understand. But such disasters as thoa* of Roanoke Island and the Tennernee and Cumberland rivers are such patent and appalling evidences of inefficiency tnat all eonfidence must be lost without seme assurance of an altered and more vigorous policy Great and oriminal as may have been official remissness daring toe isateigai montns, wane the enemy were actively preparing to invade aa. our cause is not de?peraie if we can have counsels and energetic action. With a free and brave people, ready to peril fortune and life for the maintenance of their liberties, nothing U wasting but competent leader*?men of wire heads and big heart*, worthy of this great movement, to oonduct them to victory. THE NEXT PRESIDENCY. A Letter frena Secretary Seward. A Philadelphia Republican Club, baring for the object of iu organisation the bringing forward of Mr. Seward's name in connection with the next Presidency, that gentleman wrote the * following reply: Washington, Dee 18,1881. Deax Sib?I hare received the letter which *u addressed to me oa the 8th instant by you, an officer of a political association reoently organised in Philadelphia. You will excuse me, my dear sir, for what may seem unkind or ungrateful in thia reply to that oommunioation, which haa given me some uneasineaa, and which only fails to infliot severe pain upon me because I de not regard -> the movement whieh it describes as one of very considerable magnitude. The club, aa you inform me, have adopted a resolution to exert themselves to seoure mv advancement to the Presidency of the United 8tatei, and this resolution is generously bused upon high appreciation ef such publio sertmw us I have hitherto uttempted to perform. I avail myself of the good will of the club, I thus flatteringly manifested, to say, that t consider the proceeding as one altogether unwiM, and tending to produoe only publio evil ia a crisis when every possible path of danger ought to be carefully avoided. It is a partisan movement, and, worst of all, u partisan movement ef a personal character. If, when the preeent civil war was looming up before us, I had cherished an ambition to attuin the high poeition you have indicated, I should have adopted one of two courses whioh lay open to me?namely, either to withdraw from the public service ut home to a position ftf KflllOP withint x?t vAanAnnKilUw ak.AaiJ or to retire to private life, end, avoiding the caprlcea of fortune, await the chances of public favor. But I deliberately took another oourae. I renounced all ambition, and came into the Executive Government to aid in saving the Constitution and the integrity of my country, or to ?eriah with them. It termed to me, then, that must n?e?arily rear once all expeetation of fntar* Mraonal ftdvinUM. in nril? eeunsels I micht fire to th? President in auoh emu should not only be, bat b? recognised M being, disinterested, loyal and patriotic. Acting on this principle, I shan no danger and ah rink from so responsibility So I neither leok for, nor. if it should be offered to me, would I ever accept any reward. The eonntry is to be saved or loet by the highest efforts of public and private virtue before another Presidential election shall oocur. If U shall be saved, as I believe It will, I do not fear that ay teal in that great achievement will be overlooked by the grateful generations to oome after us. If. on the othar hind it shall he lost, he who shall study the causae of the great ruin shall not find among them nay want ef aelf-eaorifioe on my part. I eoald never eoneent, if unanimously called > upon, to be a President of a division of the Republic. I eheerfally give np my aepiration! for rale ia the whole Jtepublw, as a contribution to the affbrts neoeaaary to maintain it in ita integrity.

A Novel Txlkoraphic Dkvicb ?The Louisville Joursal says: The most ingenious contrivance that baa yet come to light, as an emanation from the secession mind, is a telegraphic oommunioation between Qen. Buck* ner s headquarters at Dover, and the different fortifications at Fort Donelson A wire extends from the headquarters all through the fort, with batteries at each redoubt, ana Important points. B v this means it was calculated that troops oould be ordered frem place to place with much greater speed than by the usual medium of a courier on horseback' and I am told by a rebel officer it worked admirably during every attack. While the engagement on Saturday was going on. Gen. Buckner stood upon a bill in the rear of the fort viewing everything through a spyglass. A telegraphic operator was by his aide, with a ' pocket instrument" in his hand, and by this means all ordera were transmitted from the commanding officer to the troops within the fort. trr A singular Incident of the attack on Fort Henry 1* related by the Evanavllle Journal. The rains which had fallen for some days before the light, xoftened the earthworks into a sort of heavy mud,during tbe engagement a shot from the Easex threw a great wad of this mud into tbe muzzle of tbe ten-Inch columbiad in tbe fort. The rebels not noticing tbe queer cartridge thus furniabed them, rammed In theirs, and or course drove the mudlpAhead of It, filling up the vent and chamber 9 that tbe gun could not be fired.

St. Louis, Feb. 25.?A gentleman who escaped from Columbus represent* a general Union sentiment as prevailing in Tennessee, and thinks the Legislature will acquiesce in the recommendation of Governor Harris, because tb^r are fearful of resisting the Union sentiment.
