General Sheridan's pursuit of Early is likely to be as effective as h s recent vie ory was complete. He has r.-ot only sent the enemy "whirling tbiough Winchester," but he is whirl-ng them on towards .Staunton at a most pitiless rate. Early fought till night on Mon day. and doubtless marched his men all Monday night. All day Tuesday Sheridan's cavalry must have been at Marly s heels} lor on Tues day at three 1'. M. Sheridan was crossing a stream thirty miles south of where the battle becran on Monti vy. Such a pursuit, continued through two oi three days, might very probablv end in the complete dispersion ot Early's force, a.id cave Sheridan without an opponent and tviih an open road to Lynchburg. Sheridan has plmty of cavalry; and uo man in the coun try knows better how to use that arm, so aw fully efficient-for just such service as is now required of it in the valley. Indeed Major General Sheridan will now in all probability sl ow, os no one has hitherto shown in lb s war. i ow much an energetic pursuit can accomplish toward the ab-olute destruction of a beaten army. Our victories in August and September make our record for those two months o .e of almost unparalleled splendor. Lee beaten three times in as many desperate attempts to dtivw Grant from the Weldon road: Hood beaten three times in liis attempts to break Si ei man s advance, and a fourth time in the decisive battle that gave u.s possession of At lanta; our triumphs at Mobile, and, tinaily. Sheridan's magnificent success in tbe valley? all these make a series of victories that are the surest guarantee the people can have of peace. But Sheridan's victory is something even bet ter than the splendid climax to this splendid ser'eB. It is a victory whose effects upon the situation at Petersburg will be immediate and ! great, aud it is one that shows us exactly how distinct is General Grant's grasp of the whole ; situation in \ irginia. Sheridan, as we have repeatedly shown, could have beaten Early a month ago as easily as he did on Monday last: but Crant was not ready for the victoiy then. He used the valley to amuse Lee, aud when that amusement was no longer necessary to bis purpose he made Lee pay for it. He has been ahead of Lee at every step, and is still ahead; tor it will doubtless prove that 'Sheridan's battle has been exactly timed for its effect else where than on tbe immediate field where it was fought. That effect will be seen in the triangle com prised between Richmond, Petersburg and Lynchburg. Sheridan pushing Early toward Staunton, or beyond it, toward Lynchburg, will very imperatively divide the attention that Lee now gives to Grant. Lee will then be in a very uncomfortable dilemma. If be sends out nny force to stay Sheridan?to save Early and Lynchburg -Grant will take that opportunity to get the last of Lee's railroads. If he does not send out such a force, Sheridan may very prob ably get hold of the same railroad at its Lynch burg end; and so. in either event. Lee must get away from Richmond?if he can. For all this to be soon done it is necessary that Lee should not be reinforced by the veterans under Hood, whom Sherman has for a little time left idle Sherman's truce expires to-day. and it is to ( be hoped tbat be may immediately assume active operations again, if (or no other purpose than to keep Ileod's men out of Lee's army. VoLrvTEKWNO FOR TilF AftMT?OfR QroTA.? Mblle tbe draft is being enforced in many | places throughout the country. New York is still exempt, and we hope and trust will con tinue to be. The Supervisors' Volunteering Committee continue in daily session, in ac cordance with the desiree of the President, as expressed to Supervisor Blunt, and mea are being continually enlisted, though the numbers per dap are not great. As we have before staled, Mr. Bluat and the committee claim that the quota of this city is full and more than full, and this baa been positively conceded by Provost Marshal General Fry, and this, too, notwithstanding tbe State Oommiasianer swspt off at a single dash of the pen thirteen thou sand of the twenty-seven thousand naval re cruits wIjo, Mr. Blunt discovered, had enlisted from this citj, and of course belonged to our quota. Hence it ia that our quota is fairly deemed oot only full, but in excess. \et Hie accounta of Assistant Provost Murshal General Huts vary slightly from thoBe of Mr Blunt, he claiming a email number as still due to make our quota full. How the General ar rives at this fact is not exactly clear to U? ; and. ultbough full power is vested iu his bands for enforcing a draft, we hope aad believe a fair adjustment will be made, and the demands of the committee, as conceded by the Washington authorities, be accepted and considered as a final settlement This'is due to the great city of New York, which b is done so tuucb both in men and money towards putting dowu this great re bellion. Not tiik Fiimt Vhtokt in the Sues an i>o ah Vam.ev. ? The Tribune speaks of the late bril liant success of Geueral Sheridan as our "first victory iu that valley of the Sbcnaudoab which hitherto has becu to us the valley of humilia tion and almest of despair.'' This is a atrauge mistake for the pretentious military historians of the Tribune. It is strange that they should forget the handsome victory of General Shields over Stonewall Jackson, near Winchester, on the 23d of March, 1802, from which battle field Jackson was driven by Banks up the valley nearly a hundred miles. Stranger still that Greeley should lorget that General Fremont, in the mouth following,alter driving Stouewail Jackson, in a running tight, front Strasburg up the valley some fifty miles, brought him to a stand at Cross Keys, and defeated him in a hot battle o! five hours on the 8th ot June, Jackson leaving Gve hundred dead and many wounded on the field. 'We hare bad some very serious disa-ters in the Shenandoah valley from the blunders of the War Office and incompetent and negligent officers; but, though Gen. Sheridan's victory i.s our greatest and completest ar.d most important in that quarter, we have had there a good many others, great and small, in cluding 4,hat or General Hunter near Staunton, which, however, was turned by Hunter to a bad nccount. Tiik Hon. Bk.s Wood as a Mii.rrARr Critic.? In bin Daily News of Tuesday last the Hon. Beu Wood, in a leading editorial on the mili tary situaFoi). said:?"The horseman who. we were told three weeks ago, by the New York Hkrai.d, was riding to Early's camp with orders for his immediate return to Richmond, was a creation of the executive combination to dc ceive. The pretence that the Confederates (the Hon. Ben never calls them rebels) are retreat ing Irotn Sheridan, and that they are being fol lowed by that officer in pursuit, is a piece with the same geueral plan of imposture." Fur ther, says the Hon. Ben Wood, Sheridan, iu moving on Early's flank, "received at Borrj ville a blow so he ivy as to drive him tor safety into intrenchments. Immediately afterwards his ambulances were captured, and his com munications. for at least the time, cut oil.' To cap the climax the lion. Ben declares "Early is not retreating, and Sheridan is not pur suing.'' This was on Tuesday morning; and while yet the paper was damp upon which tne-e positive abortions were printed came the news ol the deleat and rout of Early s army of invincible rebels, with Sheridan in hot pursuit, after having sent them "whirling through Wiuchestcr." Tito Hon. Ben Wood, as a Northern military critic in the interest ol Jo!!'. Davis, would do well to hang up his fiddle. Ocr Curat Victory.?-The victory won by Geueral Sheridan, under General Grant, in the Shenandoah valley, has been received with the greatest enthusiasm by all parties except the peace copperheads. II is true that this victory is a step towards peace; but it is not the kind of peace the copperheads want. They are working for a disunion peace, and Gr&nt. Shtr m ?n and Sheridan are working for a Union peace. The republicans tired one hundred guns over the victory yesterday, hoping to use it in their political campaign. The democrats wTl fire auother hundred guns to-day. probably with the saute object. Iloth McGlellun and Lincoln now stand upon n Union plat orin, and a Union victory helps the former as much as it does the latter. It drives the peace copperheads out of the democratic party, and thus strengthens Mc-Clellan among all loyal, pa triotic people Like in Dasher.?We would call the imme diate attention of all parties concerned to the fac t that the wall of the storehouse just burned out at No. 529 Broadway is left standing, un supported. We may expect the equiuoctial storm now at any moment, and a strong wind would inevitably blow dowu the Tout stories of cracked wall we have referred to. As it is. this muss of brick and stone leans tow ards the street. Should it tall in the daytime, or even at night, many lives would be sacrificed. It mint be pulled down at once. The city au thorities should attend to this. General Fremont Aboit to Withdraw.?
