" What may be the explnnuiioiiot this Midden and entire change in tbe i iewsofthe President, and this rude withdrawal of a courteous overture for negotia ticn nt the moment it was likely to he a -cepted, of this emphatic roeall of words ot pcaao just utter d, and fresh blasts of war to the Inttor end, we leave for the speculation of those who have the niesns or Inclination to penetrate tho mysturiei of his Cabinet, or fathom tho ca price of his imperial will. It it enough for in to say that wc have no use whatever for the paper which has Ik en placed In our hands. Wu could ni t transmit it to the President of the Confede rate Statea without olfering him an indignity, tiitnouoring ourselves, aim incurring tue welt merited scorn of our countrvmen. Whilst an urdem desiro for iacc pervades tho people of tho Confederate S atos, we rejoice to believe that thero aro few, if any, among them, who would purchase It at the expeuso of liberty, honor, and aelf iespcct. If it cuit be securud only by their submission to terms of cou meat, the gent ration It yet unborn which will witness its r stt in ion. II theio be iinv mi'iiary autocrat lu the North w ho is entitled lo proffer the. conditions oi this manitesto, there is none iu the South au thoui d to cut' rmin them.

Ibis correspondence will not. howevi r, we trutt, prove wholly barren of good result. It there Is any citir.cn of the Confederate States who has clung to a bopo that iwa'C was possible with this Administration of the Federal Govern ment, It will strip from his eyos tho last tilin of such n delusion. Or, If there be any whine hearts have grown faint under tho suffering and ngony of this bloody struggle, it will inspire ilieni with fresh energy to endure and brave whatever nuiy yet be requisite to preserve to themselves and their children ul that gives dignity and vitlno to life, or hope and Consolation to death.

Most of what they do report appears to have the mirk of tinlh, tnd It must bo confessed that our "in vasion," just at this moment, looks like one of the most paltry affairs ot the war. Washington wus uot taken. Baltimore was not tskeu. 1 he Ynuket'ixed population of Martins bmg has embraced thoir townsman, Hunter, gain. Not a bridge of the road between Wash ington and Baltimern was bu.uod. The road Itsi-b was unbroken. What bat been done then? What has yet been obt lined by tnese opportuni ties l.ynchbnrg and Washington the lino of which Providence has not vouchsafed since tbe first yeur of the war? One house has been burned ; two thousand head of cattle brought off; Major-General Tyler und Major-General Frank lin were taken prisoneia, and both permitcd to escape.

The fade of tbe great chance of l-vnch-burg was bad enough, but it would be indeed haid if this invasion of a country emptied of treopt should accomplish only the burning of a bouse to cool tbe embers of John L"tc'ior's dwelling.
