' Each day the situation assumes anew shape.
If we may credit the news we have it is better
to-day than it was yesterday, and it was better
yesterday than it was the day before. Now if
things keep on in this improving way, it does
not require any very nice mathematical calcu
lation to show tha‘t we must. soon be "out of
the woods," traveling on a plain, straight ma
callamized road to peace and a restored Union.
For this we should fervently thank God and
the skill and bravery of the Army of the Poto
Wa moon to enter into no ellperflaelte opooti
lotions, to offer no gratuitous remarks upon an
occasion at once so solemn and so joyous, if
we may be permitted the use of what appears
to be and yet is not a solecism.
The occasion is solemn, because we have
reached the crisis of the war which htte go dis
tressed the whole nation, and it is joyous be
cause the crisis appears to be favorable to a
restoration of peace, if the authorities on both
sides, who have the direction of public affairs,
are not entirely demented. •
This miserable war has Rhona" a@ Well the
great military resources of the whole country
as the bravery of the people of the different
geographical sections of the country. It has
shown that the North as well as the South, the
East as well as the West, is filled with a popu
lation who will fight, and fight well, when they
believe the occasion requires it to be done.—
We know each other now, MO k now l e d ge
has been obtained at a great expense of blood
and treasure, but it is invaluable, and will
probably preserve the peace of the country for
a full century—so that although thousands of
hearths are desolate, whole provinces laid
was te, and the country brought to the verge
of bankruptcy, the price paid may not, after
all, be too exorbitant for the experience gained.
Let us hope that this may be so, and that,
henceforward, wisdom, virtue, patriotism and
statesmanship may hold the helm and direct
the ship of State.
We „bj o i w yk a latest intelligence we have,
as wen from the Army of the Potomac, opera
• ting almost in our immediate presence, as from
the more remote theatres of war. It will be
seen that Vicksburg has capitulated, and we
may hope, although we have no late intelli
gence from that quarter, that Gen. Banks has
been as successful at Port andson as Grant
has been at the stronghold of the Mississippi
ant Meade in the Valley of the Cumberland.
The news which we publish in another col
umn, from the New York _Herald, of the at
tempt of Vice President Stephens and Commis
sioner Oald, of the Confederate Government, to
communicate personally with the Washington
a dministration, if true is highly - important,
ind we cannot understand why the Cabinet in
council should have refused to receive them
A few days will probably explain all, and we
can afford patiently to await the development.
The following is the substance of all the
news we have:
The New York World of yesterday has the
following, in addition to which we only add
the report that Lee has crossed the Potomac
with a considerable number of his forces.
We have so fay seen nothing to corroborate
the newspaper stories of the utter rout of Lee's
army. The simple fact seems to be that, like
Burnside at Fredericksburg, he hurled his
army upon masses of artillery and infantry.
and was repulsed, not only once but several
times_ Our army made no attaek,upon the
rebels, but barely attempted to hold its ground,
which it succeeded in doing, swill" addition by
the close of Friday evening held the best part
of the battle field. Of course their failure to
defeat the Army of the Potomac was a cruel
disappointment to the rebels, as it put a stop
to their schemes of invasion, and they were
compelled to retreat to save their communica•
dons, nfenaced as the latter were by the forces
of Gen French and Gen. Couch. But there is
no reliable evidence as yet that the retreat
was disorderly, though it was probably hurried
to gain time. And here it may be well perhaps
to state why Lee fought these three days' bat
ties. Clearly, then, it was to prevent the junc
tion of Mesde's and Couch's forces. It will be
remembered that when Reynolds was attacked
on Wednesday last he was marching from
Gettysburg to Car:isle, to which point General
Couch had pushed his advance guard under
General Smith: Longstreet and Hill, to pre
vent the junction and keep the armies apart,
felt upon the First and Eleventh corps and
drove them back. Taking advantage of this
success for him and reverse for us, Lee deter
mined to attack and defeat, if possible, Meade's
whole army. He saw he had no time to spare
with Cpuch within a two days' march of his
rear and Gen. French hanging upon his other
flank. "tense the desperate assault of Thurs
d4y ofttruoun awl the fusion Ogheifig of Fri
day morning. Hence, also, the retreat of Fri
day night when his assault failed. This was
to save his communications.
Lee's army retreated, we have reason to be
lieve, in tolerat ly good order. We do not hear
of his - ng guns, though he did prisoners,
etrag and some of the trains be coultroot
take a y with him. When last heard from he
was at Williamsport, tend it was feared at
Washington that he would succeed in getting
across the Potomac notwithstanding the height
of the stream., Gen. Meade was in pursuit by
way of Frederick, and Gen. Couch was coming
down the Cumberland valley. Should Lee be
overtaken it would go hard with him, as he
.must be short of ammunition, but we would
not be at all surprised if he got with what was
left of his army across to the Virginia shore.—
To speculate upon the loss of Lee's army is de

Fourth of July Speech of Gov. Horatio
Seymour, of New York.
This sound and eloquent speech is printed
on our first papa We invite attention to it,
berape ip deserves attention. It is a complete
exposition of Democratic views. It shows the
madness of the ruling power in precipitating
this war against the wise counsellings and sol
emn warnings of the Democratic party, and
points out the pathway to union in the north,
to peace on an honorable basis, to a restored
Union and fraternal relations. At this time
the man who will not soberly read and sol
emnly reflect upon the subject matter of a
speech like this, delivered by an eminent citi
zen upon a great occasion, is unworthy
American citizenship, and fit only to belong to
the crowd of fools and fanatics who, having
brought the country to the verge of ruin, are
striving to complete the destruction by hurling
it over the precipice.
Horatio Seymour is no ordinary man. He
is, in fact, a great man—and just now a great
man is a curiosity who ought io be studied by
the whole country and exalted in political
power by universal consent.
It is time that the people should throw off
the reign of apes and donkeys, of tdodding
fools and plotting knaves, and try once more

directing the administration of the government

TEE CIVIL AND MILITARY POWERS
From the New York Evening Poet of July 2d
General Pope has addressed a letter to the
Governor of Wisconsin, in which he defines
briefly and lucidly the place and duty of the
military authorities in the enforcement of the
laws. Governor Salomon wrote, in relation to
the execution of the conscription act in that
State, and the resistance which it was feared
would be made in certain parts of the State,
that, in my judgment, the military power
should not be employed in the enforceuteut Of
aoy law in the first instance, but it should be
left to the ordinary civil officers and tribunals
to see to its execution, unless it should clearly
appear that the latter are unwilling or unable
to do so." In this view General Pope, who
commands the Department of the Northwest,
heartily concurs. He writes :
" I fully agree with you that military force
should not be employed within the loyal .mates,
in the execution of this or any other law, until,
all the means for its enforcement usual in times
past have Oen exhausted. * * *
The habit of resorting to military force in
every trifling case of opposition or resistance
to the laws is becoming so common as to excite
in the minds of judicious men very serious
alarm. Such a practice entirely supplants the
civil authority, sets aside timedionored means
for the enforcement of the laws in this country,
destroys in the citizen that feeling of personal
interest in their execution through which alone
we have maintained popular goviernment, and
prepares the public mind for com Pete abdica
tion of civil rule. It is impossible to believe
that citizens of this country, except under the
immediate influence of excitement, can be wil
ling to &tint the enforcement of civil lcw - to
military force, and thus to surrender the very
highest privilege and duty of American citi
zens. Such a'course would inevitably lead, if
persistei in, to the complete dominion of the
military, and the final overthrow of free insti
"This practice tends also naturally to weaken
in the soldier that reverence for the civil law,
and that respect for the civil authorities, with
which he entered the military service, which
he still earnestly cherishes, and upon which
alone we must rely for the quiet disbanding of
of our great armies, and the return or the
soldier to his home an orderly, law-abiding
citizen. Mary dictate of wisdom and of pa.
triotism should teach us to discourage, both
by act end word, anything that might possi
bly tend to impair in the mind of the soldier
his feelings as a citizen.
"I therefore hope that all well-disposed citi
zens of this State will, after short reflection,
understand the imperative necessity of exer
cising their right, through the civil tribunals, -
to enforce every law of the United States,
however much they may have been opposed to
" Whilst, therefore, my duty to the Gov
ernment requires me to furnish whatever mili
tary aid is necessary to enforce the conscrip
tion law throughout this department, in strict
accordance with its terms, I shall only employ
military force for that purpose after every re.
source of the civil authority has been used
General Pope reasons soundly and like an
intelligent and liberty loving American. De

markable phenomena which attracted his at
tention during his travels in this country, the
universal respect of Americans for law. The
laws ate observed, he wrote, beetutat, ev ery
citizen feels his interest to lie in their obser

them because the citizens are ready to assist
the civil authorities chosen by themselves.—
Let us retain this honorable distinction. It is
the one feature of American society which
makes us the superiors of European nations ;
thio single reOult.juetifies liberty and popular
The American people do right to be jealous
of the interference of the military power.—
Their sentiments on this point arise fiom a
conviction, honorable to them, that, except
where open rebellion or insurrection obtains
and temporarily overthrows civil government,
the people are always willing enough and
strong enough to aid the civil authorities to
enforce the laws; and General Pope says, pro
perly, that if we should once accustom our
selves to call on the military power for help at
every turn in our affairs a serious blow would
he struck at, that self dependence and respect
for law which is the foundation of our libt-r
