I,f Diet.—JOHN LYNCH, of Portland. •id District—SIDNEY PERHAM, of P*rl». A Eebel Outlook. To those who are distrustful and despond cat regarding our military affairs we commend ihe following clear aud comforting summing up of the operations of our two great Armies, by tbo Georgia Constitutionalist of June 2tfih. The accouut is from a rebel stand-point, aud shows clearly enough how matters are viewed 11 Dixie. We presume the editor wrote out bis honest couvtclioDS “The magnificent army of Sherman has, without loss and without battle, lorced bars one of our best armies, under a favorite Gen eral ; and if he only had iuieuded a raid, the destruction of the vast agricultural iuterest ol the grauery of our Stale, is a loss winch we we are ill prepared to endure, aud totally un prepared to retrieve. The evil is, first, the withdrawal from market ofessential food; sec oud, the iucreaoe of population caused by re fugees, which makes an iucreased demaud ou the producing capacity of the State; third, the increased prices, which tend to depreciate the currency, wUichcsnu.it bear another one-ibild repudiation, Toeu if It be more than a raid, aud Suerman holds bis trout by fortitlcalious, and ais rear by guards, it D an actual lues 01 empire. 'therefore, with harm actually done, and with Atlanta aud the great railroad interests Involved in the fate 01 a battle that Shei man may or may not risk, is it wise to tell our peo ple that tue iuvasiou of our Slate is but a 'stu pid biuuder' of the enemy. Just eight hours before ihe battle of Baker's Creek, a General high iu command told a lady iu our hearing, that the crossiug of the Mis sissippi by Gcu. Grant placed him at our mer cy, aud that the ouly tuing to tear was, that he would take the alarm aim escape to his gun boats oelore we could make the attack. Twen ty-four hours later, our brokeu columns wen hurrying along the same road in retreat, aud the lady wuo had believed the General could not aave even her wearing apparel. That General was uot named I’embet ton. Instance after instance of this kind have wv had durtug use war. aud yet grave papers, with able editors, talk of the certainly that Sherman Can never lake his army back to Chattanooga, aud congratulate the country tint be has marched into a trap. We ouce had some ex perience with an old rat that always sprang mu steel trap ITom the uuder side, and always took off the bail aud sever got caught. 1 lie Yankees bare a peculiar faculty of marching luto traps aud staying there. Our ouly com mentary upon such writing is, that such trap-, as ualf a State, aud the best haif at that, are so expensive as to awaken smiles iu the North aud ia Europe when we boast of them. In like manner do we talk about Gen. Grant, aud amuse ourselves over a set of facts which are far from amusing. We are perfectly satisfied that ilia comman der of the armies oi the United States might have reached the result uow aim d for with but a small portion of the loss he has sustain ed, and that with all allowance for the pecu liar Couiedrrate anhmetic which kills Yankees to rapidly—ou paper! Lieut. Gen. Grant was greatly mistaken in his ilea that, haviug turned the Hulk of Gen. Lee iu crossing the Kapidau, there would sim ply be a loot race for lt.cbin>ad. But two things hare since been demonstrated, aud bom are serious. First, that the army of the Uulou is so large aud powerful that the usual military axiom, • Flunking is more dangerous to the flanker than the flanked,’ does not ap ply. The strategy of Graut, which consists in simply withdi awing one wiug at a time be hind tUe itnurecnable masses ol the center aud other wiug, would be fraught with peril were that ceuusr aud remaiiiieg wiug con tracted enough to be enveloped, or weak enough to he broken, bol is perfectly safe as U is. Therefore he is at liberty to play tricks In plalu sight and without peril, simply because he is too big to catch. Consequently, in a succession of tricks, eveu by one of the only in ale rate ability of Grant, there is dan ger that one not seen or foiied at exactly the night lime may catch us. Such a result wou'd uot be destruction to our army, for Lie also ia to big to hold, but it might do ns harm. The second danger is of the siege of Rich mond. Some of our contemporaries, and the rn-wt of the correspondents, laugh at this ; and yet Grant has it iu his power to besiege the capital, or force an attack on himself, or force an evacuation ot Richmond. Not that ne has bis choice of these three things, hut can force that choice upon us. Iu Grant's moving up the south of Rich mood aud threatening James river near the city, Gen. L>e has choice of two evils. If hi' keeps ahead of Grant and holds the Peters burg line invlolated, that flanker necessarily gets between him and Richui >nd. ami walks Into the city at his leisure. If L'*e keeps be tween Richmond and Grant, the latter of course gets between him and the {southern {states’ communication, and cu's off the onlv source of suoply now left, as ihe valley of Virginia is In the hands of the enemy. Ii Lee want* to save Petersburg and K chin and both, lie will have to attack < ran', iu one of his craw-fish movements, and will have to at tack the positions and intranchmeni* which the grand -fade and-pick army never exists an hour without. Iu our judgment the plan of the campaign Is at last developed. Western Virginia, the ▼abey and its resources, l«, by the movemeut on Staunton and L“xlngton,to lie reudeted unavailable for provision*. Grant is to throw his army into lortlBcatlons aern-s the rail road* from Richmond south, and »o cut off our armv supplies. Thus the starvation of a selge will be as effectually secured, as If an army could he found large em ugh to sur round the legions of Lee, as Grant did Gen. Pemberton; provided, of course, that the Danville road shares the same fate that the Weldon road probably will. If Gen. Lee chooses to stop the game by a fight, he has to put hl« Anger on the slipperv Grant aud stop his flea-like flanking*; and having found him and stopped him fur a fight, he will have to charge the hills Grant will oc cupy and the trenches Grant will dig. If President Davis concludes to swap capitals, and giving Grant Richmond, starts off ahead of him for Washington, we will have the ar my to subsist in desert waste between the two capitals; have to make time ou foot that .will beat the transports on the Potomac and on the Chesapeake; have the fortifications of Washington to storm, and a selge to stand should we get, Inside. We 'ose Richmond If we hpto the Weldon and Danville rail-roads; we lose the rail-roads if we save Richmond, or we attack Grant in nightly trenches If we try to sa7e both. It Is true that Gen. Beauregard could still keep south of Grant, and prevent raid* Into Caro Una, but oouM not keep him from stopping i the roads aoull), unlesa he has enough men to attack Grant lu reverse, and place him be tween two lires. We hope Graut thinks he lias. This Is a game with no possible hind rance, perfectly plain to even such untniittary comprehension «* our 0*11, aud we respect fully submit that there isjno tun in it. The writer is aware from personal observa tion, that there is a personal popularity aud enthusiastic devotion to Grant amongst his soldiers, not equalled by anything seen in ' that army before, nor surpassed in the army , of Lee, and Very much like the love ot the Old Guard for Napoleon. Therefore he can ; flank and fight for some days yet, before they get tired of it.. These are lacts, and plain as tltpy are, it is not good sense to talk of tho trap that Sher man occupies, or of the bull headed Grant j hutting his brains out against the ramparts of Hicbmoud.” We think the writer of the above takes quite a sensible view of our military situa tion, much more so than the Richmond edi tors, who seem to be whistliuc to keep up ; their courage. The writer appears to be ■ well posted up and discourses very intelligent ly. Let croakers and copperheads read care fully and attentively, without prtjudice, and we thiuk they will haul in their horns and say i there is yet hope of the republic; if they do not, it will only be another proof of the old saying, "There's none so blind as those who will not see.” • The National Sailors' Fair. We published a few days since, a circular in behalf of the National Sailobs’ Fair, to be hel l iu Boston in November, the pro ceeds of which are to be invested in a Home for disabled sailors, marines, aud others of our naval service. I. Is a most worthy aud needful charity, aud it becomes the patriotic and philanthropic people of our sea-bordered Slate, so many of whose sons arc iu this at m of the natioual service, to take hold of it 1 earnestly and generously. We kuow how liberal aud coustaut have been (heir contribu tions in behalf of the soldier, who by his valor aud devotion, has earned all and more than all 1 that his fellow cltitens have done or can do for him; aud the willing spirit and the untir ing purpose to provide for the wants of the soldier which have bean so nobly manilesteil, are among the most cheering and hopelui of the slgus of the times, for they assure us that IUC Will But how little comparatively, iu these three years ol suttering and trial, and of grand charities, has been done for, or thought of tbe ; equally lailhfui and heroic seaman! Having j no open euerny upon the ocean, the tuemBer of the navy have Uad but few opportunities to perform brilliant actions, and from their being placed beyond the lines of easy and frequent cominuuiralion with our centers of news and information, their exposure, their sufl'erlugs, their fidelity, aud their passionate love of the ! old flag, have not been understood or acknowl ; edged as tbey should have been. In explanation of the object of this entcr ' prise and tbe reasons which have led to it inauguration, we subjoin from the Boston Transcript au article written by E. P. Whip pie, Esq , to which we beg to call the atten tion of our readers. Aud it is with great pleasure that we anuouuce that iu this city the matter has beeu placed iu lire charge of a most competent committee, consislingof Mrs. ,1. B. Brown, Mrs. J. Si. Little, and Mrs. U. I. Robinson, whose names will be a guaranty that our city will be faithfully aud honorably represented at this great Fair of New Eng land aud the North: National Sailors’ Fair.—A vigorous and earnest efiori L uow in the course ol be ing made, having lor its object the establish ment of a Hour ruu Ugaulao Sailors ■ and Marinas of our Naval Service, and proposing tor its means a great National Sai lors’Fair, to he held in Boston in the early part ol November next. Tue ladies aud geu : Ueineu connected with ibeeulerpiise hope to enlist in iu favor all classes ol their fellow citizens, aud to be aided iu their work by rep resentatives of every tiraucb of mechanical, ' mauUlactuiing, commercial tiud proiessioi.nl business. The Navy of the United States, at the be ginning ol this war consisted of only 90 ves seis, manned by 7(500 sailors; at the present i time it contains 3:17 vessels ol *11 kinds, tin ' pioyiug between oU.OoO aud 150,000oHirers and uien; aud the ships of large nmage, now in the course of coustrucuou. will soon add so j largely to the navai force, both in vessels and , seamen, as to uiske tbe f ailed Mates the first naval power u! tile world. As it is, the navy of Euglauil, excluding me Coast Guard Ser vice, employs only 4S.000 seamen, anil that of France ouly 49,000. Iu less than a year, our navy will have iu its active service at least 05,000 meu, or uearly nine titn«-s the number it had ou the breaking out of the war. The present arrangement of the Govern i meut for sick, maimed and disabled seamen and others of the Navy and Marine Corps, are aiu gelher inadequate to meet tbe exigencies of the present war. aud the claims which i spring irom tl e Vast increase of our naval i power. A sa lor can be admitted into the Na : val Asylum at Phiiadedpoia only after a ser 1 viceoi twenty year*. 1' insane be can be put iuto tbe Army and Navai A,yluui at Washing ■ __ If slat, a- u. „n,L.<4 l.o la .1 I from llie Natal Hospital when cu ad, or.il may be, when pronouuced incurable. For the immense majoiiiy of casus,—of which some, distressing examples have come within the knowledge of the ladies and gentlemen connected with the proposed Fair,—the exist ing rales of the service makes no provision. A sailor whose constitution has been hopeless ly shattered by disease or exposure is cast upon the world, helpless aud without the means of getting a crust of bread except from I charity. If he lias been disabled by wounds he is allowed a pension, but one entirely in sufficient for bis comfortable support. It is evident that such a state of things op erates disastrously against enlistments in the Navy, and the keeping up of our Naval Fo ce j to its lull efficiency. The service must be pop . uiarixed, as the} military service has been, by a demonstration of interest in our gallant tar on the part of the whole community, and by a practical movement to relieve the misery ol 1 those who have hoeu maimed or broken iu constitution iu their country's service. It i j evident tiiat arrangements, suitable icr ape rind when the nation was at peace andemp oy ed only 7600 sailors, cannot meet the necessi I ties of a peiio i when ihe country is at war. aud requires ttj,OUO seaim-u. We have sprung, 1 as by magic, to the position of a naval power of'h -. first rabk, without a thought of the nb lieaiious, both of benevolence and jus Ic ■, , which such a positiou creates, The present movement lor s great National Sailor’s Fair is on a scale proportion-lie to the ; important object sought to he obtained. 'It is warmly recommended by the tn st promi nent men in the community, and is managed lit a Committee trained for the work bv pre vious experience in great Fairs. T> e Boston Academy of Music has been hired for the purpose. Nearly a hundred Bub Committees have been appointed, representing every class aud Interest iu Ihe community, to solicit mon ey or articles of taste and utility of their Iriends and connections. As Massachusetts has nearly 15.000 men in the Navy, aud as the New England States taken together inn-t have contributed more than a third ol the whole naval force, evert seaport town, every village and locality, iu the .State and in New England, has an interest in the success of the Fair, and will be counted on for active svinpa thy in the cause. The Committee confidently hop* to obtain a sum sufficiently large to es tablish a groat Sailor’s Home, which, while it shall relieve seaacn who bate stiff-red and sa crificed everything in the nation’s service, will, at. the same time, symbolize the nation's gratitude for the deeds of its defenders on the seas. Slightly Obfuscated. The New York World of a recent date con tained two articles, both editorial, and priuted in adjacent columns, which Indicated a mud died condition of mind on the part of the wri ter. Both related to Oen. Or tilt's operations, and iu one of them occurs this passage: “ Gen. Grant's selection of a route was in obvious deference to a strong preference of Ihe President. The consequence was, tiiat twice as many men were sacrificed in reaching the James river as would have sufficed to guard all the avenues of rebel approach to Maryland.” I The other urticic says: “ Gen. Grant has been allowed full liberty to ’ move his troops when he pleased, where he i pleased, and how he pleased. He. therefore had no drawbacks from the administration.” ’ ' Such “irrepressible conflicts” are inevitable when reckless lying is the policy. But never ■ mind. Any thing for a point against Grant ' and the Administration. Eelirious and Ecclesiastical Items, Rev. Henry W. Dexter, editog of the Con- I gregationalUt, having been called to an ac count for exchanging pulpits with Rev. Chas. , Beecher, says: “In the exercise of confidence In the soundness of his heart, au*i of she es, , seutials of his doctrine, aud in testimony of | my aborrence of tbst spirit which would 1 thrust a good man—whoso labors Christ ao- ' cepts—out of the miui try, because hU pin- j Insophy of theiHogy Is different from his own, * I exchanged pulpit services with Mr. Beecher 1 —he being the Orthodsm Congregational ist , pastor of an Orthodox Congregational | Church.” The Congregational Union of Canada re cently passed the following'resolution in re gard to our war. It brenth<*s the true spirit. j It is no more than should be expected from an enlightened body of chrUtiau men: IJesofceii,—“That while it docs not come wilhiu the province ol this Uuion, as a reli- 1 giuus body, of another nation, to express our opinion on the political aspect* aud issues 01 this unhappy war. we do hereby reiterate the i expression of our intense abhorrence of the Inhuman system of slavery, rejoice in the , wide-spread determination to exterminate i this nefaiious institution, and earnestly hope aud pray that the result of the apparently un- ( toward events now occui riug may be the to tal and final overthrow of that wicked sys- j tem. We further record our respect for the j large sympathy and benevolence that have j been manifested by the Christian churches of I the United States, in their t florts to amelior ate the condition of the lluedmen, aud to render comfort and sympathy to the widows I and orphans of those who have fallen in bat tle, and to the sick and woifuded soldiers.”’' The Congregational church at South Paris have invited Kev. Francis Soutbworth ol' Westbrook, to occupy their pulpit for a time.

But his roc«nt West Point oration seems to have been ihfe feather to break the backs ot the West ern Peace Democrats, and that veteran cop • pet head of Ohio, and fkst friend of Vailamiig haui, Sain Medary of the Columbus Crisis, tho-' old wheel horse of Western Democracy, refer ring to said oration, thus mildly and sorrow fully dismisses the‘‘Young Napoleon” forever: I “ Politically, General McClellan could not have done a more imfortuuate thing for hiui : self, nor a more uutonunalo tiling for the ' Country than to have advanced such sentiments just at this time. Satisfied from his actions here iu 18(11, while under Governor Denni-on, and from ail his actions since, where political , opinions had any connection with his actions, that he wag uot the man to place at the head ! of the Democratic party as a political leader, we have as tenderly as circumstances will ad , rnlt, so indicated. And what hot ambition and “policy”ever caused tbe members of Con gress to adopt bim and try to force him upon the people as the leader of the Democratic pai tv, we never could comprehend. His ami ability of character, Ids personal attachments i to the Democratic party, his sciantillc educa tion, Ills devotion to the art* of war, ail these are well enough, for aught we know, but there are miny men of Hue acquirements w ho are the most unlit of ail men to whom to ent’U't | the liberties of a great people at such a time : as this.” Review ot the .Market, For the week ending Ja y 19.1864, prepared ex pressly lor the l-nhCH. by Mr. M.
