Let every loy»l youug man in tie city bo |nre*«nt. Gallcrica reserved for Ladies. Grant and Lee. These officers now occupy a large place in the public mind the world over. We have no disposition to belittle Lee as a military man. Some of his movement." have shown to the world that he possesses certain military qual ities that make him a daugerous loe to a Gen eral who does not understand his tactics and guard against them. To mass his troops and attack the weak points in the battle lines of his . opponent has always been with Lee a favorite movement. And to such movements he owes much of the reputation he has acquired as an able aud shrewd officer. Aud so far we gite him the credit that is his due. But wc believe, from a careful review of his ; military career thus far in the rebellion, that General Lee lacks some of the qualifications essential to make a great commander. He fails to heed the lessons which that great schoolmaster, Experience, teaches, aud to ig nore the maxim, “learu from your enemy.” Gen. Lae has not fully appreciated the differ ence in the characters of the Federal officers who have met him on the battle lieids. And I. __ Unn.i.lla Tailasl In AA.nnM>. uw uwv—. —r --j - —- - - r hend the true character of Gen. Grant. Hi* plan of striking heavy blows at weak points has sometimes bad the effect of stagger ing his opponents aud driving them Irotu the scene of action. These sudden and bold at tacks took some of our Generals by surprise, aud made them believe they were fallen upon j by overpowering forces, and they withdrew to j save their armies from becoming prisoners to 1 the rebels, when they might have shown a lit tle more perseverance and pluck and gained victories themselves. These retreats of the Union forces have encouraged Lee still to con tinue bis peculiar tactics. And these tactics he learned from flgbtiug such Generals at Mc Clellan proved himself to be in several en gagements. Tuis officer was noted for extending his lines enormously. Ko matter what the nature of the soil was, or how the grounds were situat ed, whether the swamps of the Chickahominy or a more hilly country, he would spread out his army, aud make a great parade, covering minishing his power to ofiVud or defend. This wily rebel General also learned anoth er iessou from McClellan which he has often used to much advantage. Aud that is this:— McClellan had a habit of advancing boldly to wards his enemy, finding a place of safety aud there waitiug for ‘'something to turn up" in stead of boldly and bravely attacking his foe. and winning a victory which he might have done In several Instances. He began this course of proceeding at Manassas where he hi bernated and wailed patiently for an attack. His force was greatly superior to that of his enemy, and he might have driven the rebel army from its position, ami gained a substan tial victory ere he had began to prepare win . ter quarters for his brave boys who were ready and anxious to attack the rebel-. This waf a great blunder on the part of McClellan, and no doubt Lee to considered it and laughed iu his sleeve at such a want of pluck and perseverance. Both armies pa-sed the winter safely and pleasantly, and in the spring the whole rebel army marched away leaviug their rjuaker yunn to be captured by the brave and cautious McClellan in case he dared to make an attack upon them. This is a true record, and the future historian of this civil war will have some comments to make upon it which will not add much fame to this General of the Union forces. With lessons learned from such sources, Lee commenced his campaign with Grant, aud in some good degree governed himself la accord ance with them. It is fair to presume front this aspect of adairs that Lee thought Grant ought to have considered hluisotf beat, n,and retreated, after the two days’ battle when lie crossed the Hapidan, and so ended the cam paign as some of his predecessors had done, aud as McClellon surely would have done, had he occupied Gram’s place. It would seem that Lee had lurgottou Grant’s mode of Ugh ,.ic, .t v, .undantiy shown in his Ue-u-m caiupaiei, . Had the rebel geueral bjeu well po>t t u . iu regard to these campaigns, and reuicrn .. . ...i them, he might have learned some Ip-md- quite differ eut from tho?c taught him by M,-1. i-,iau and •ome other general.-, auil shaped ins tactics, accordingly, if,: did, however, learn after a 1 while, that Grant was neither beaten nor disheai teued by his terrible ami impetuous attacks upon him. Grant did not retreat (rout "that line,1' but followed up the severe and terrible blows he had inflicted on his foe by renewed and more vigorous assaults, till I he forced this aide rebel officer to fall back slowly and sullenly from the Rapldnn to Rich mond, Finding Graut's tactics so entirely differ ent from those of McClellan under like cir cumstances, Lee was glad to retreat and placs himself behind his entienehments and seek salety under cover of his earth works. These were severe lessons which Graut taught his wily opponent, and it would seem that so shrewd an officer as he has 1 shown himself to be would not soon have for gotten them, but iu his great anxiety aud zeal to overpower Grant, either by force or strate gy be did forget or iguore them lor a brlel time. The mining operation before Petersburg not proving go successful as Graut had good I reason to suppose it would, Lee forgot th caution Grant bad taught him, underrated hi stern opponent and again adopted Ids old tat - ' tics which seemed to cling to his unud with a power he finds it difficult to overootne. 1 his single disaster occasioned by the par tial fadure of the miulug operation might, and probably would, have driven such a geueral aa McClellan from the Held and from the Beige of Petersburg and Richmond, but Lee ought to have known Gtaut better than to suppose that a single defeat like that would thus effect’ I i him. Although Grant was foiled at that juuc- ' ture, he was Grant still and not McClellan i and Lee In bis subsequent attacks telt the i force of that truth. Grant did not crouch be- i bind his earthworks and wait for something to turn «p. It to a tray Grunt ha?, not to foi j low, but to lead. It never once occurred tobto mind to pass the seasou under cover at his entrenchment*^** McClellan biltsrnstsd at Mananas. With Grant a single defeat to but an Incident in a campaign, aud not to be re garded as cause sufficient for a cowardly re treat Irom the field of operations. Grant never sets down in in hopeless inactivity. It Is not his habit, but after all, wo think he. knows when he is fairly whipped, which, it was said, “Old Zicli did not know. We opine Lee nfler the explosion of the mine and it? unexpected result*, to see Grant steaming down the ' .feme* H*er, bag ard burgage- Well, as if to confirm sugh expec tation*, Grant did make a pipvcjn that direc tion,.but »o'u» hi* lore.-* were located on the North side ot thu James river. Lm was de ceived ami thought Ilia opponent was detei miued to gain a position ncajcr the rebel Cap ital, wluW such* movement was intended to over up the marching of the Union forces ,o a point on the Weldon railway below Peters burg. bo eontpleti ly dicelved Wits that j he suspected our forces were withdrawn from tiefrout or Petersburg, ami this suspicion was confirmed by the rebels opening a terrific fire upon our lines and receiving no answer, or, at most, a very Iceble one. Lee was now satisfied that the seige had been abandoned, and Gen. Waricn found no enemy to oppose him at the Weldon road, w iiich to now in our | possession. Since, Grant lias obtained possession of this i nportaut railway, he ha* been desperately assaulted, but the enemy lias been repulsed with fearful loss in eveiy attack. We trust our forces will be able to hold it, aud also to destroy the Danville road, so that Petersburg aud Richmond wdl become isolated irom the ren of rebeldom. The possession of the Weldon roadcutts off one of the most impor tant rebel lines of communication boulh, and we may expect that Lee will do all that lies withiu his power to regain it. If he fails in this, we may safely deem such failure a signi ficant sign that the military power of Jeff. Davis is on the wane. He will undoubtedly throw a dragnet over all his available forces and mass them at this poiut, hut we may resl assured that the indomitable Grant, In the meantime, will not remain inactive and idie# Knowing the great importance of holding this road, he will tax his utmost energies and do ail that can be done to keep the posses sion of it. We hope and trust he will suc ceed. Had Grant been in McClellan’s place at Manassas Lee would riot hava so leisurely walked away with his army and escaped. It was a great aud serious blunder on the part of McClellan, and greatly injured the Uuiod cause. We could better afford now to have such a blnuder committed than we r >uld ai that time. If Lee had been fought and whipped as he might have been at that junc ture of our affairs, it would have been a most seiious and disastrous blow upou the rebels— one from which it would have been difficult for them to recover. If Lee had been brought to grief then, it is among tlie possibilities that the rebellion would have been crushed out Jong ago and peace restored to the land. To those who have closely watched the progress of events lor the last two years, and noted carefully every phase of the rebellion, the above statement may not appear unreasonable or far fetched, i Such a blow upon the rebels at that time w mid have been a staggering one, and proba , bly bave saved many bard battles which have j since been fought. We have alwaysconsider I ed the escape of Lee’s army from Manassas, ' as one of the most unfortunate occurrences 1 of the whole campaign, and the entire blame rests upon the shoulders of the General who i held the comma id at that time. The Recoil of F. 0. J. Smith's Gan. The Advertiser of Aug. -2dth, had a long, malignant attack upon Mr. Lynch, for his , agem y iu v ...... r MaUu—ui which ex Judge Rice is President—and Ilia passage of the resolve which allows a paltry sum lor tlie encouragement of Swedish and Norwe ; giau immigrants, of industrious habits and good character, to settls^iu our btate. Alt. Lyucb is assailed for voting to play fast and : loo e with the people's money, and the Asso ciation is charged with being a swindling con cern, got up to specula'e in human flesh, and ail that kind ol clap-trap, and all this is done . with a view to injure Mr. Lynch’s chances of : supplanting Mr. sweat in the next Congre-t. Tne special regard of the editor of the At‘ , verlLer lor .Mr. Sweat has already been hint ed at in these columns, and need not be re peated; and yet it vv ill not be forgotten that Mr. Sweat it one of the n ferret to whom Smith has agreed to refer certain pending suits, claiming damages to the nine of $20, i 000, for alleged offences of a nature which de cency forbids us to more fully t xplain in our columns. His motive tor keepiug ou the right side and making a friend of the referee is very apparent, though we are not willing to believe such appliances will be accepted as a brilie by any honest man, to the extent of warping his judgement or modifying his Ter. diet. But we come back to the charge growing out of the legislation touching the Immigrant Aid Association. Probably the writer of that malignant article was not aware ot Mr. Sweat’s participsney in a similar piece of legislation, only on a much more gigantic scale. On the 4lh of July last, a law was approved by the President, which had passed both Houses of CoDgre-s, entitled “An Act to encourage Im migration.” Among the provisions of this bill are the following: A commissioner i9 to be ap pointed, to reside at Washington, to be allow ed $2,500 salary and three clerks; a superin tendent of immigration to reside at N'ew York, $2,i)00 salary, and one first class cleik; provisions for making contracts with immi grants, paying (heir onstage and they to work It out alter arrival, similar to the kin dred provisions of the Maine Association, and 825,000 is appropriated to carryout the object* of the act. This act, creating several new offices, with fat salaries and appropriating a large sum of money to carry it into effect, proposing to do on a large scale and lor the general l*ene dt of th> nation what the Maine Immigrant Association proposes to do In a more humble way for the especial benefit of our own State, tills act, we say, was rated fur by L. D. H. Sweat, and received his cordial support! Wo don’t mention this by way of censure of Mr. Sweat, bat rather to show how F. O. J. Smith', gun, aimed with malignant intent at Mr. Lynch, l>y itt recoil strikes down his own can liJale an 1 makes mincemeat of oue ttrlio n he labor to aid !

The Golden Barometer. Gold goes up and down in the market, not i so much becuu-e of any actual changes in the > wanes or necessitiee or even prospect* of the j * country, as because of the variations in the j spirits of the people. On Tuesday of last week I * it ran down to 232, and the jubilant copper- I heads said it was all owing to the prospect tf 1 ' McClellan's noBiination, but tile neat day, : when that nomination became a fact, gold went up to 243 1 2 at a single bound, and con- j turned to rise until Friday alVeruoou when it touched 252! Then came the newsfroth At lanta, and down it went by the run to 240. It is surtul ed that the decline on Tuesday, instead of being beeittw of McClellan's proba- J hie nomination, was owing to the speeches of j Messrs. Harris and long, indicating that the 1 convention would break up in a row and the ; country be saveu the scourge of a copperhead c iUipalgts. lilit wheubythe agency of the tjof, th we tellers of unpleasant Democratic truths ' were choked down, and harmony tv as restored 1 by “coercion,” and the platform was adopted S and McClellan pieced upon it,.the hopes of ; loyal men took ou a momentary sickening fit, ! ami bp went gold among the two-fifties; but the cheer of Sherman’s victorious troops as they leaped the defences of the “Key to the j Confederacy” and captured the very heart of I rebeldom, dispelled not only the heari-sicknes* j of the people but caused all the hopes of the McCk-llanites to dissij.a’e in the smoke of Sh's guns. From this moment the Copperhead bubble is burst, and the Chicago candidates are “dead cock-, in the pit.” Their star pales when the Union sun rk-cs. They shine only in the dark- . ness of rebellion’s nigh . But "the morning 1 light is breaking,” and the hearts of the peo ple take courage. The pet of the Copperheads has had a very short though a merry life. He went up like a rocket but Sherman has brought him dowu like a stick. Like the pig in the story: “When he lived he lived is e’orer. When he died he died ail over." A Significant Confession One of the oldest, most respected and best informed Democrats of the city, a man ^ of wealth and ol good Social position, and who has long stood high in the confidence of of his party, was in one of our b auks, Satur day, and the conversation took a political turn, and the prospect.- of Presidential can didates were alluded to. The Democrat is a I strong friend of MeClellau. and regards him ! as the strong mail of the party for the posi tion he now holds as standard-bearer. In the course of conversation, this gentle man, with all his confidence in McClellan's vuccess and his alleged popularity with the people, very c mdidly stated, that, if the Uu 1 .on army should he successful, if Siiermau should taka Atlanta and Grant Richmond, the Chicago nominees covld xot be I elected! uoyai msu oi rortuau ana oi mume, think of the Figoideation of such a confes sion. L is a confession, uct from an ignorant, ’ irresponsible piece of party drift-wood, but i from an intellectual and induculial man, tbat ; the success of his party can be secured only i by his country’* defeat! that the success of ths loyal cause is sure to destroy ail hope of a Democratic victory'. j What aa ugly reflection this for a loyal | Democrat; that his cause and the rebellion go up or g > down together! And yet such a reflection is just. Kebel defeat lu the field gives strength and hope to Uuion men; rebel | victories in the Held strengthen and eucour age the Democratic leaders! Let those draw comfort from this reflection who may. “Independent” Enterprise behind the Lighter. The Advertiser has sneered at the Associa led Tress and its news arrangements for the Morning papers as a “slow coach." and boast ed of its superior laeililie* Jor early jjews^b^ boasted that Its Wasliiogton correspondent, “Dion” could beat both the Associated Tre<* I aud lightning by twenty-four hours, in the transmission of news from tbe/roiif, using no I other means of locomotion than such as is pro j vided for Uncle 5> im'a mails. Saturday moruiug, however, the wlud was i taken out of this boaster. The Advertiser headed its "special dispatches, excluxictly to the Advertiser, by the Independent Line,” with the following caption in flaming capitals: j “No NLWS FiiOM ou it Gin: AT A it MI*#!" In the Tress and Argus, of the same date furnished by that “slow coach”—the Associa ted Tress, was the glorious news of ShcumaVo j cap runic of Atlanta! ! Where in the world was “Diou,”.the Wash ington (!) correspondent of the Advertiser, that Ue allowed this o'd fogy eoucern to get , ahead of him? No Armistice Admissible. The Kichmoud Examiner is quite sure that proposals for an armistice will lie made to the i rebels from some quarter, either from our 1 Government, or the Chicago Convention, i This Kichmoud editor lays this flattering unc* j tiou to his soul. Ue says a Mew fork paper I urgently advises Liucolu blmseif to take the I initiative in this movement lor the purpose of disarming and silencing the peace portion at the North, because he shrewdly guesses «ucb i an armistice and negotiations would be re j pul«ed. This Editor says: “This is merely a move touke the wind out of the democratic sail." Ue j is exceedingly wise in his own conceit, and wouid regret very much to have the wind j taken out of the democratic sail. But this ! chivalrous writer places a veto on the whole | matter, and says whether this proposal comes from Lincoln or the democratic party, it i* wholly inadmissible. A Soldier's Views of Duty and of the Prospect. We have been permitted to read, and make the following extract from a private letter Irom a Captain in the 29th Me. regiment,_a Portland man—to his friends in this city. The letter is dated “Near Hallstown, Va., Aug. 27.” The writer says: “We, here in the army, look oi»tl;« rebellion as on its last legs. Atlanta, Richmond and Mobile are doomed; all that Is wanted is the men, and we look to you at the North to lur uish us the men, and tneu you may look for good newa, L'ulorce the draft by all incaus. Let the Government sgp that you all sustaiu it, and by next spring we wilt settle this re bellion. Everything lays with you at hotse. The whole army go in for “Old Abe” for the next President, so stand by him and he will be elected. JSverythieg goes right with us. Fighting is our trade at the present time, and we. menn to tight it out. Just let us see' that we are sustained at home, and ail will be well." McOlellau'a Opinion of JtS. Daria, Col. Metcal ', of Kentucky, made a Lujan speech at a public meeting, not long ago, at which he related an anecdote of Gen. Me Clellan, showing how he regarded the rebel leadtu- He said; “I got uiy eyes opened on that young Napo- i leon in the spring of 1#8J. I yent to see Gen.

Wm. Lloyd Garrison recently wrote a letter to Prof. Newman of Oxford, which contains advice as appropriate for this, as for the oth er side of the Atlantic. We c >:n neml it to those hypercritical persons who orerluok the great and glorious achievements of thv past, and the noble deeds of President Lin coln, in their search tor and impatience over matter* of comparatively small amount. Mr. Garrison says: “My dear sir, I beg you to lake a telescopic rather than a microscopic view of our affairs; and. Instead of dwelling upon and magiuify ing to huge dimensions those incidental er rors and outrages winch are Inevitable in the midst of such an awful civil war, aud which are sure to be corrected, tlx your gaze u;>* on those suNime and glorious acts of Hie President's administration, whereby slavery has received its death warrant, aud the haughty slave power beeu laid low in the dust, and still feel justified iu looking ou this struggle ‘with serene satisfaction as a sublime sacridce lor t magnificent future.”’ The Copperheads come to Grief. The news from Atlanta was a severe blow for the Copperhead cause. We have seldom seen longer faces than were worn by the faith ful of tint persuasion on Saturday. Souse of I them are reported to have said to each other, in an undertone, “It is always our d-J luck for Grant or Sherman to do something to blast our hopes.” There is no disguising the fact: the copperhead stocks go up as the hearts of the people sicken within thno», anj a ylotory over the the rebels is as fatal to their prospects a» a CV*4 win to June goslings, or an early frost to tender vines.
