NEW AuguA 9.-'—We have no

-On Sunday, Gen. Lyon retired to Spring-

From a higher sonrce than the "coach

9c yesterday touched upon the signif•
icanae of the.victory of 'Monday as re-
specks the State ; 'we now propose to say
la wdrd touching the significauce of the
victory as respects the country.
In this relation,. two grand points were
made by the :Union candidates through
out the State; ;namely, first, that the in
dependence of the insurrectionists ought
not Eo be recognized, and, secondly, that
the insurrectionists ought to be compelled
to 14cotznize the supremacy of theConsti
tutiOn and the'inviolability of the Union.
The' Union. candidates everywhere, in the
Stat i c announced that the thon.lit.of
cept,4ng the destruction of the Republic
ae tti fact was not fit to be entertained, but
that; the Republic, at whatever necessary
cost! ) of treasure and of blood; must be
preserved. , Furtheiniore, the Union can
clidtites universally approved the action
of the Union 'Congressmen in voting men
andimoney to prosecute the war for the
obj4cts defined-in the resohitioo intro
duced by the illustrious Crittenden and
adopted with ail but 'absolute•-nnanimity
by both Muses of Congress. : 41'lle action
of onr Union ,Congressmen . entered into'
and constituted a part of the position of
every Union candidate in the election of
3lontlay. On the other hand, the seces'-
sion candidates declared universally • in,
.of the recognition of •the Southern
Confederacy and ag,ainst the prosecution
of the war. for any object. They openly
co.ntended that the nation ought at once
to submit quietly to its own destruction
by. - calf. Davis and his rebellious cohorts.
They declared for peace on the• basis of
thei overthrow of the Republic. With
thej issue thus made up, and made up thus
unequivocally, the Union candidates as
we have seen enough to 'knew, were elect
ed by a p.l: , ularroajority completely over
wh'phning. The strong probability is that
,thi popular majority of the Union candi
&les is unparalleled in the history" of the
of the State.
T he victory of Monday, therefore, sig
tr'.ues clearly, us respects the external re 7
lations of the State, that Kentucky is op
po-ged to the recognition of the Southern
Co i nfederacy, and is in favor of prosecu
ting the war "to -defend and maintain the
suj4remacy of the Constitution, and to
preserve the Union with all the djgnity, •
ecitlality and rights of the several States
impaired." It signifies that Kentucky
is not prepared to receive as fact the de-I
(str&tion of the proud Republic of which I
is a member. It signifies that Ken-I
tu4y rejects peace on terms-` so ruinous
I and so ignoble as these. It signifies,
th-It in the estimation of Kentucky
- •
there arc advantages more precious than
pelee, and evils morel pernicious than war,
and the preservation of.the: life and honor'
of lhel-nation is among the former as the
los. of both is among the later. It
ni9es that Kentucky thcroug,hly compre
bends 'that there could be nothing ,but
war i
sanviinary and interminable' if the
Union shoul , .i he destroyed, and that the
maintenance of the Union in its full.Con
stilutional vigor is the condition of the
only peace worth having' or worthy of the
naive. It signifies that, whatever part
otlier States of the South may have cho
sen under the !inspiration of a freniy
411 ed by human- fiends, as fdr! Kentuc
ky and hers they will serve the Republic
and stand firmly by it in this dark. hour
of its heaven-appointed career.
such is the national significance of the
victory of Monday. ~ The domestic signif
icatice of the victory, we need not repeat
Ile iu the fact that Kentucky, as the
uttnbit she can do for the common cause,
is it solved to protect herself in the meg
ulr position of loyaractitrality she has
aqumed, and leave the government to di
rect its movements without respect to her
exigencies. The total significance of the
vitory is not Only . that. Kentucky is at
heart true to the Union. and the Consti
tution, but that she will henceforth wield
her neutrality more effectually than mil
injdefense of both. The victory is man
ifslstly a clear And vast gain to the Clem
inOnwealth and to the Republic.—Zotds
