Let any one w ho regards the rebellion as
something to Le overcome by rapid work,

a landing at Port Royal, a seizure ol Savan
nah, or indeed in any other sodden manner,
fit down wi'.h a map of the United States

minutes, without passion.
The magnitude of the territory to be re
posseeed at once strikes the eye. This Js
no war between two nations separated by
oceans or foreign soil. In such cases, gen
erafly, as in the Crimean war, the struggle
resolves i'self into a sort of duel, or a trial
of htrenth, at one or more chosen points.
And after due trial, and a reasonable deter
mination ol the comparative ability of the
combatants, or when the question of the ex
haustion of one rr the othr is fettled, the
result is a treaty of peace. This is no such
war. The people of two immense tracts of
territory, lying contiguous for thousands o?
miles are here opposed to each other, und
where thej are not engaged in vat armies
they are occupied in guerilla lighting all
along this immense frontier.
General McClellan has before him no
mere problem of beating an enemy in a
battle on the Potomac, or elsewhere. A
successful engagement with the army at
Manasas, defeating and driving Ihem back
m;ght produce either f two results, but
would not be certain to produce either one
It might result in destroying rebel confi
dence and spreading terror in their forces,
so as to prevent a reorganization o' their
defeated army; or i; migil only drive them
to a new point of rail) ing, and a new stand
agamsl the Union troops. A victory on the
Potomac might there'ore be of vat benefit
wnile on the odier hand it might be an aw
ful sacrifice, without a correspouding gain
to the great cause.
We preseme this to be the reasoning of
the Commander-iii Chief. It is undoubted-

But the Commanding General has a vaM
work tefore him, and how will he proceed
to do it ? Certainly not by plunging head-
long into expensive battles, which however)
hriliiard and successful, may not be either
! final in their eflects, or even useful as con
tributing materially to ultimate succes-.
Looking at Ihe vast territory of the rebels,
taking into consideration the thousand of
miles of their connected lines, their ability
lo retire into strong positions, even after
defeat, their inler-commnnication with each
other in their extensive States, and in brif,
the general truth that the rebellion to be
conquered is not at Manaas, nor Rich
mond, nor Columbus, nor New Orlean,
but is spreads ovei the entire tract ol South
ern Stales, it is very evid-nt to us that the
Commander-in-Chief has larger plan in his
mind than would be fulfilled by a mere
battle on the Potomac, or the Mississippi.
We have already intimated the idea of
1 cutting the rebellion into two pieces. If
this could be accomplished it would be a
final and fatal blow.
The possesion of three po:nts would ac
complish this, but those points ar not all

conjecture : but on the same principle it
cannot te doubted that Eastern Tennessee
is of vast imporance to the Union cane.

prnpect, it is Ine dictate of good hense to

Friend Will: The weather this week has
been the most pleasant that I have ever
known for this season of the year Instead
of cold blustering winds, and good sleigh
ing, we are enjoying the soft winds of sum-
mer, and the face of nature appears as green
as though the gentle rains of spring had just
been shed upon them. Delightful weather;
welcome, thrice welcome, to the Soldier of
the Union, who cannot now enjoy the com
forts of home, but are exposed to Ihe mer
ciless and petting storms of anury and exci
ted nature; and no; only do the storms and
clouds of the elements -surround them, but.
alas ! that there should be a hut even the
foul and venomed tooth ol slander mnt as
sail tho soldier on the fie'd of sfife. In
proof of this, look il you please, reader, at
the abuses heaped upon the veteran hero of
the shori, yet brilliant, campaign on the
upper Potomac in tt.e ihre mouths service.
Look at the poisoned pangs of the hy. Ira
headed monster's ingraMtuite in the cae ol

ces that were il necessary I might mention.

The ladies, too God bless them visit
us by scores ; and with their bright eyes
and smiling faces form osss in the dreary
wasie of sol Jier's life. 1 f:en think, Mr.
Editor, that our national greatness, our glory
and renown, are owing principally, to the
fact, that no other women under the son,
have made so many and such heavy sacri
lice as the American women. Their tie
votion to their country, its con.-'iiution and
laws tl.eir patriotic sympathies with the
gallant defenders of our home thir pray-
' ers and tears lor this land of the Iree, all, ail
conspire to convince 's that the history ol
the American women has never been writ
ten. It niy have been commenced, but
passing events go to tdiow tht it cannot be
finished yet; and Gnd forbid that it should
be! How many ftir hands have buckled
the armor on the one that I er heart held
most dear, ar.d bade him go forth to battle
and assist in subduing the great rebellion
or fall upon the altar ol liberty, erected in
776 ? Again we say God help the patriotic
ladies of A rreri'a !
I im glad to hear that the Commission
ers of your county contrary H report
have done nobly.
I expect by the time 1 write again to be
able to uive jou news of interest, and from
a different locality. 1 sti'.l remain ynur, fcc.
