The London Telegraph, a journal which has omitted no opportunity, heretofore, to show hostility to our cause and disparage our Gen erals in the Held, says: “No vulgar man, no mere idol of an hour, is this Ulysses Grant, , who, by sheer hard work and honest fighting, has raised himself from a position oi obscurity to one of almost unlimited command, and who, a virtue not often possessed by the military celebrities of the United States, is still modest and unassuming.” It is indeed true that Grant is modest and unassuming, notwithstanding the large space he occupies in the public heart of his country, and the attention he attracts from the civilized world. The London Times, following in the wake £jT our Copperhead papers, and feeling dispos ed to help the rebels as far as it can and keep up a show oi neutrality, contains a long and elaborate leader in which it is attempted to be shown that Grant might hare reached his present base of operations without firing a gun or losing a man. And supposing he had fol lowed in the track of McClellan au-.l crossed the Peninsula to bis present position, w here would Lee and his army have been, and whtt would they have been doing in the mean time ? Tills is a very important question, and one which must not be lost to tight, if one wishes to form a correct judgment of the whole mat ter. McClellan, after the lapse of some three mouth*, did reach the vicinity of Richmond, and saw the church steeples of that city, or some of his more daring officers and soldiers were blessed with that sight. Rut what did all that amount to? lie stretched out his ar my some twenty-five miles over the swamps of the Chickabomiuy, and thus gave Lee the much coveted opportunity of breaking his line and disturbing ail his arrangements. Lee's army was fresh and full of fight, and McClellan bad lost prestige, and bis hosts were disheart ened and began to feel as if this swamp was rather a tight place to be in. Now came the great retreat, and the army and the loyal peo ple of the North began to breathe easy again when McClellan had fouud a place that was somewhat free from danger. Tt was seiil ikn limn ikat ikia wnfenaf n-«n • masterly one, aud showed great generalship. Be it so. And yet the cause that compelled this relieat was any thing but pleasant to loy al hearts. The result of all this mighty move ment of a large army was—they marched to the swamps of the Chickabomluy aud then marched back again, but with great loss. Aud Lee, his army aud the people oi Richmond laughed at tbe great manoeuvre, attended the theatres, duuced at balls and took life easy. But we ask iu all seriousness how stands the case ? What are the emotions of the citizens of Richmond and Petersburg at this tiiue ? How do Lee and bis army feel since the bat tles of the Wilderness, and the flanking move ments of Grant ? Has nothing been gained for our cause by this overland march to Richmond and Petersburg? Ask the rebel General what his opinion is. He could give an answer if he were disposed, which would satisfy the most timid and anxious enquirer. He could say in truth that bis army has been weakened, its power broken, its ranks thinned, aud he him self been oul-generaled by the indomitable Grant at every turn. We all know that tbe fortunes of war arc al ways more or less uncertain, but In the pres ent aspect of affairs in and about Richmond we flud nothing discouraging. We believe this overland march to the rebel Capital has many advantages over any other tha? could have been lakeu. From the hour Grant cross ed the Rapidan he lias gone steadily aud stur dily aloug, lighting wlieu attacked and repel - iug his desperate assailants, assaulting the en emy's strongly fortifled positions when deem ed necessary, and avoiding them by flank movements well planned and admirably exe cuted, when circumstances required aud justi fied it. When Lee least expected it, Graut would withdraw from tbe front of his shrewd antagonist without belug observed, avoiding his eutrenchments, aud pursuing bis course to wards tbe rebel capital much to tbe chagrin and disappointment of his wily foe. Such was tbe course pursued by Grant on his march to Richmond. And again, the questiou may be asked,what has been gained to our cause by these move ments? What have been the legitimate re sults thus far? The battles fought iu the “Wil derness,” cosily as they were to ns, and more so to the rebels, are full of advantages to us. They did much to break the military power of the rebels, and to show Lee that he had not a McClellau to deal with this lime. Woody as they were, we believe that blood was not shed in vain. It may yet turn out that the battles were the great and decisive struggles, and that they have precluded the necessity of fighting other great battles ere Petersburg at.d Rich mond fall. The present as|>ect of affairs in that quarter seems to strengthen such a belief. Iu addition to all this, Graut has taken 17,000 prisoners, and the rebels admit a loss of 20,000 killed and wounded. Wheu rebels make such an aduiissiou, we may be quite sure that double the number would come nearer tbe truth. We believe they have lost in Virginia,since Graut crossed the Rapidan, at least 50,000 men— most of them their bravest aud best. Our wounded are better cared for than theirs. Ue ing attended by good physicians, and aided by the Sanitary Commission, thousands of our wounded soldiers soon return to the ranks a gain. It will be kept in mind by the careful read er that Lee has constantly avoided battle in an I J—MjilMfc open field. The fair and legitimate inference J is, that he feels his want of power in such a [ contest, for Grant lias given him many oppor j tunities for such battles which Lee has always deciiued, and for good and substantial reasons, no doubt, But what more has been gained? j How is it about the railroads leading t? ltich inond ? It has been announced on official au thority that sixty miles of the Ricbmoud, Dan ville, Petersburg and Lynchburg roads have j been destroyed, and thoroughly destroyed loo together with much valuable rebel property in J their vicinity. Without these railroads the rebels carnet furnish supplies for their armies in and about Richmond. And it is not at all j probable that Richmond has a large store of ' provisions on hand. But what of the receut raid into Maryland? 1 Is there any thing very alarming in all this? . What is the objective point of such a rebel movement? It is nothing but a spasmodic ef fort, intended, no doubt, to impress Grant w ith a fear that Washington is in Jauger, and to in duce him to withdraw his forces away from ■ the rebel Capital where they are so trouble- j some just now, to protect the Union Capita!. ! But Grant will nut budge one single inch iu that direction, and we see no necessity for his ! doing so at present. But if the Uuion com mander had taken the Peninsular route to reach his present position, Washington might have been in danger, for Lee's army would have been iu good ligiiting trim, and decimat ed as it must be now. He could have sent a much larger force to assist iu this raid upon Maryland, and^-till retain a formidable milita ; ry power about Richmond, but Grant's over land march has been very much in the way of such a demonstration. That McClellan's cam paign was a failure tiicru is no doubt even in a Copperhead's mind, but Grant is still victori ous and presents a bold froul to the enemy. We have confidence in this leader of our ar mies, and believe that lie has the rebellion by the throat—a hold that McClellau never had, or, if he ever bad. be was too timid to keep it. We desire and intend to give our readers nothing but the facts so far as we are able to obtain them from the mass of news that comes over the wires. Onr comments and specula tions upon these facts must be taken as bon- ' estly expressed convictions of a hat we believe 1 to be true. -And yet we may sometimes err, I and if so, it shall be cn the aide of loyalty to our government. We have no desire to eu , courage hopes which are not we'l founded neither do we think it just and proper to throw dark clouds over our prospects w biclr facts will not warrant. We leave such an ungrateful task to Copperhead journals. And their read ers must know, unless they are thoroughly hoodwinked by party prejudice, or what is worse, influenced by sympathy for the South, that it is the almost constant habit of such pa pers to belittle our government and magnify the power of the rebels. Before we close this article, we will allude to Sherman and his noble boys who have fought tliair way over a long road, and driven the rebel forces beiore them. It seems now, from the most reliable accounts that this side General is master of his Situation, and that Atlanta, upon which his eye has beeu dxed so long, mint soon fail before the prowess of his , arms. In our survey of the whole ground , then, we see nothing to discourage the loyal hearts of the country, or to paralyze its strong arms. Mighty as the rebellion has proved to lie, the power of our government, backed np by the generous and enthusiastic patriotism ol the people, is more mighty and will prevail. “TllC American Conflict-” The conflict between Freedom and Slavery, says the Prospectus of Mr. Greeley's gieat work on the “History of the G[eat Rebellion,’' extending through me entire period of our VMtinnnl ImlpnomlHnpo. and r tihninatlnir in the most gigan ie and unjustidable Uebellion on record, affords material of intense interest for tile Historian’s widest scope. Taking advantage of ibis cootllct Mr. Gree ley ha* written the first volume of a work that will find a place in every well-selected library, and be regarded iu ail future time as one of the standard authorities iu American History. No man is hatter prepared for such an uudertaklng, and we make this statement iu full view of the conceded f.»<-t that the time is too early to make a history that snail he entirely impartial, and ot the equally plain lact, that the author is a man whose sympa thies and instincts and prejudices are all on the side of Freedom and against that accurs ed institution of human bondage which has culminated in our present nalioual calamity. All this is admitted, and yet Mr. Greeley is an honest, caretul, critical, truthful student, who will never conceal facu^o make out a case. More than this: his opposition to slavery being founded injustice and spriugiug from convic lions ol eternal K'glit, even his prejudices will spur him in the direction of truth, so that iu his philosophical speculations, instead of overtaxing the credulity ami faith of pos terity, hs will only anticipate their inevitable and lighteous verdict. Hut Mr. Greeley has very little to do with speculation in this work; facts are too abundant to allow him to leave them for the survey of any field of fancy, and the truths developed iu the passiug hours be ing stranger than the most unlicensed fiction, he has no occasion to give rein to his imagina tion for material with which to make up and embellish the ' American Cuufiicl.” His book, wc have the means of knowing, is nut a parti san w ork, and it has received the highest com meudation from a portion of tuu Democratic press ol the country. The hook is being brought out by Messrs. O. D. Ca>E <k Co., Hartford, Conn., iu magni ficent style, in various forms of biuding, mak ing it worthy a place beside the standard works of the age. The first volume, now about ready for de- • i livery, will contain 04S pages, ahuudautly il lustrated by Maps, Diagrams ol U ittlefields, Sieges, Naval Actions, views ol' places of bit toric interest, obtained from official reports and other authentic documents in the War and Navy Departments, etc., together witli a large number of line steel Portraits of promi nent Geuerals and other Distinguished Per i sons connected with the War, both Xcilh and South, making about seventy in number. Vol. 2, completing the history, wiil be pub lished as soon as practicable after the close of the war, and be in all respects and in all ita at tractive features fully equal to Vol. 1. The price of the work, per volume, will be from $J,50 to $0,00, according to tlic style of binding. It will not be lor sale at the book stores, but w ill be furnished only by travelling agents.

Our Canadian neighbors are somewhat ex cited because some of the Catholic clergymen have recently been entertaining their heareis with sermons touching the now ali-absorbing subject of Federation, ltev. Mr. Daniel, cf Montreal, in a sermon among other thiugs •aid, “Our nationality it at present more tliau ever before in danger. It is time, it is high time that we should rush to the rescue uuless we wish our memory accursed and held in ex ecration by posterity.'' This is strong lan guage and made a deep impression on his heaters. Another sermon was preached in Quebec, by Kev. Father Boumigale, to the same effect. He urges his hearers to keep united, and witli great vehemence told the French Canadians that they must defend themselves ' against Protettani*m and A ngUficatlon. The Bishops arc now engaged iu pastoral visit* to 1 their several dioceses, and some time may ! elapse belore the Hierarchy can advise and agree to a united course of actiou. That they are much opposed to the scheme of Fedrra tion, there can lie no doubt. And when they lake snuff' the whole Cauadian French popula* | tion sneeze. Musical and Dramatio Gossip. Florentine, the famous French musical and j dramatic critic, connected with the Paris i Press, and musical editor of the Montteur, is ; dead, at the age of fifty-seven. The Italian Opera is undoubtedly put to sleep until the autumnal leaves begin to i fall. Maximilian has made a draft on several operatic singeis to amuse his new court in the - city of Mexico, but M ix Maretzek is in Eu- | rope hunting Vp<othcrs to supply their pla- | ces. Vera I.orini returns to Europe, being old and void of force. Virginia Eorini is concerting out West, ac companied bySteffani. Miss Kcllog has been successful in New i England, Her tour to Europe is postponed j lor the present. Madame Bishop's couccrt tour in Western cities has been, as usual, successful. During ' the fashionable season she will sing at Satato- 1 ga, and afterwards go east. P. S. Gilmore has commenced his prome nade concerts.

Prof. Simmons, the Escamoteur, will visit the Provinces and Canada this month. Nearly one hundred dancers, actors, operat ic performers, etc., have been engaged in Vi enna for a German Theater in Mexico City. With this and M izz deni's operatic compa ny, that city will have abundant means to make its new lvnpemr's court lively, and the inhabitants festive, if not joyous. Niemann, a celebrated tenor, bus been en gaged at Hie Court Theater In Berlin, at a salary of 5mK) gold thalers for twenty per. furmai.ee?. Ginglini has appeared in oratorio in Lon don. There is a great demand for tenors. Madame Volpini has reappeared in opera as Martha, and as charming as ever. ltonconl has won new honors in Stradella. Tamberliuk, Carious Patti and Uraziani have been singing together with much ap plause. Florentine, the celebrated dramatic and mu sical critic, who for several years had much influence in Paris over actors and slugers, died suddenly last June, in the prime of life. Benedict's annual monster concert, given en matinee, will embrace as performers Gitigli ni, Bellini and Uardoni, three popular sing ers. Many of the theatres are now closed for a brief season. They have been generously patronised during the last year, notwithstand ing the war. Such times of excitement al ways drive more people to theatres and other places of amusement than more quiet period*. Mince we have been au independent nation, we have never witnessed such scenes of tur moil aue excitement; and those not engaged on the baltle-flields wilj seek aliment for troubled minds and anxious spirits elsewhere. •• Of sueh stufl is human nature made.” Sabbath School Celebration at Naples, on the Fourth. Just out ij the village, in a grove neatly prepared for the occasion, ttve sunbath schools, viz: The Union and Methodist of the village; South Bridgton Congregational: Harrrison F. W. Baptist and Edes’ Falls Schools, were assembled with parents and friendsWo cele brate our National Birthday. A-loyt twelve hundred were present. The children mingled together in a social and cueerful manner, till past ten o'clock, when J. Diwes, Esq., of Har yison, was chosen president of the day, and Singing by the children; Prayer by Bev. Mr. Bartlette of Harrison ; Music by the Glee Club of Naples; Addresses by Messrs.Staples of South Urijgton and D. T. Frost of Harri son, and a dialogue by two boys, The school then formed into a precession, marched to the tables spread for a bountiful co'lhtion. The Divine blessing was invoked by Kev. Mr. Cobb of Waterford; after which followed au intellectual repast. Speeches were made by Mr. Cole and T. T. Merry of Naples, aud Kev. Mr. Maxwell of South Bridg ton, interspersed with speaking by the chil dren and excellent music by the Giee Club. The “Blue Flag,” and “America,”—“My country, 'tis of thee,” were suug. li«v. Mr. Ballou of Naples, presented the claims of the Christian Commission, and a collection of f-)U was taken. The multitude then joined the Glee Club in singing Old Hundred—“Praise God from whom all blessings flow,” and the exercises closed. Tue speeches were patriotic as well as relig ious, aud everything passed olT in the most harmoutous manner. T. T, Mintin'. Tnnut Parish.—A meeting ol this society was held last evening to hear the report of the Ecclesiastical Council, in relation to Kev. J. E. Walton. It was read by Mr. Gould, was very brief, and embraced none of the points of doctrine, wherein the feouuoil differed from Mr. Walton. They ouly state he is not sound iu doctrine according to their view of the subject, therefore could not reccoutmend bis installation. Iu other words, they could not consistently, with their religious belief, extend to him the right hand of fellowship, and yet they believed he was a pious man, and hoped he would become a good aud faithful minister of the Gospel. For such a consummation they prayed. The report would have bee* more satisfactory to the meeting if it bad pointed out wherein they ditftred iu oplnlou from Mr. Walton. The question came up, what should bo done with the report? and muuy short speeches were made upou it, but finally it was laid up on the table to be acted upon at a meeting of the church, regularly uotilied. Such a report is only advisory and not binding upon any cburc’.i and society, although the Congrega tionalists usually receive such documents with great respect aud generally abide by them.— This is a novel case, for usually the councils recommend an installation of the candidate, and there the matter ends j but in this case the opinion of the council dilf red entirely from that of the church and society, and the question would naturally arise, whether the church would receive such an opinion and give up their own. There was much feeliug on the occasion, but all behaved with the utmost propriety and Christian decorum. The great difficulty seem ed to be how the opinions of those present, in relation to retaining Mr. Walton, could be got at. Finaliy a motion was made that the com mittee invite him to preach to-morrow morn ing, afternoon ami evening. The vote was taken by rising, and all the congregation rose but two, we believe, and one of them half rose up. There was was great unanimity of feel ing manifested. There is evidently a strong attachment ot the members of the church and society to Mr. Walton, and the probability now is that he will be tbeir pastor.

The Philadelphia Press Contains a thrilling description of one of the evils of slavery, as given by a soldier of the limit Pennsylvania regiment. The scene la four miles north of Pamunkey river, at tho plantation of Mr. An dersou Seott, the owner of oue hundred and Uftv slaves: “Around the door were three women and ! about halt's dozen children,irom the wee baby to tlie youug girl of lllleen or sixteen. Two I of the women were about a shade lighter than ! the quadroon, while all the children were white. The third woman w as apparently pure 1 white; her eyes were blue; her hair was brown and straight; her features wore eutircdy Am erican—nothing to deuote a particle of negro blood. In her arms she had a beautiful little | boy, about four years old, with fair hair and blue eyes. This woman was crying bitterly when we rode up. Thinking she was a mem ber of the family, we tried to console her by assuring her that Yankees made war upon men, and not upon women.

Et-Goveruor Reeder, whose death, in Read ing, Pa., has already been announced, was ap pointed by President Pierce Governor of Kansas under the belief that he would aid iu the iniquitous scheme for bringing Kansas into the Union as a slave State, to "maniain the balance of power” between the North and the South. But Uov. Reeder became thor oughly disgusted with the atrocities of the Border Ruffians, aud, failing to carry out the programme of the slavery propagandists, at pretext was fouud for his removal. Gov. Reeder became convinced by his Kansas ex perience of the thoroughly pro-slavery char acter of the Democracy, reuouncel his allegi ance to the party and continued a Republican to the day of his death. Literary Reminiscence. Gen. George P. Morris whose death has been announced, became connected with the press in New York, in 1823. lu connection with the once famous Woodworth, he com menced the publication of the Mirror, for many years the organ of a choice literary cir cle. It succumbed, however, to the force of circumstances in 1842, and iu the following year, Morris and Willis—those uames so well known—started the New Mirror, which in ’43 was succeeded by the Keening Mirror. In 1840 they established the Home Journal, wid remainud its joint oonductors till Gen. Morris was compelled to retire last fall, on ac count of his failing health. Among Mr. Mor ris’ choice poems is ‘‘Woodman spare that tree.” $ me Jtigai spirit. An officer in the otb Army Corps, in a pri vate letter written at the “Camp near Peters burg, Juno 30th,” enclosing nearly two years’ subscription to our paper, says: “Deprived as I am here of so many of the comforts of home, I tiud the Daily Press an old friend, coming to urn by every mail, whether on the march or on the battie-Ueld, and bringing news that I could get in no other way. “Everything is prospering finely, and the folks at home must not he impatient about our taking Richmond, which, in due lime will yield to the demands of our obstinate Commander-in chief. Eight weeks ago we crossed the Rapidan, have fought our way here, and the army is to-day full of rim and courage, in Hue condition and always ready.” Said Nehenilah to Sauballat, who was try ing to embarrass him in Ids labor for his su > feting countrymen, and to draw him away from his great purpose, (see Book of Xeh. VI: 3.) “I am doing a great work, so that I cannot come down; why should the work cease whilst I leave it and come dowu to you?” We ofler the same reason to our friend who asks, in a private note, why we al low the daily unkind slurs of a contempora ry to pass unnoticed.
