Hut. malters ur.' appro .aching a erimia.' lie
lore many weckt-, tlie last grand and decisive
bat tie'will have begun. Tue preliminaries are
being rapidly arranged.
?Such a contest as this will be, the -world has.
never witnessed, foi? upon it^lepends the fate of
the country, in that baltic, aluould we suffer a
defeat, it will be overwhelming, and all the
advantages we have guiued in the past six
months will be as won hies? as ihe bubble repu
tatious they have made. If Lee is defeated, ha
still has the interior in which to once more
rally his scattered legions, and concentrate for
defence, if not for attauk.
From all the outer gai risous and troop de?
pots, the r>;bel army at the capital is. being
augmented. Silently but surely the storm is
gathering. Let us not be too sanguine of suc?
cess. It may be that thc r-?bel General will
make it a Waterloo for us, while upon him
through the sinuke of that day's battle' will
shine the tun of a Second das 'a Austerlilz. Lee
wili not throw ' away re,?ingle chance. Ile is
not the man of lost opportunities. Had Lec?
had command of our ?trunes ut the onset of thc
war, wc verily believe thc rebe.lion would have
been crushed in ic?-? than eight mouths. But
we hud only such second-rale undertakers as
i>urii&ide#iiiid Hooker, Huller and l'ope.
Let us trust that our Lieutenant General may
be thoroughly prepared for tho conflict; that
when the conflict conies, our immense plurality
of men may HOI bo driven tn their deaths in
I vain attempts to accomplish aa impossible pur
I pose, and that for otice our leader? may be
i equal to their llereuie.m task.

"VC AN Y persons have thoughtlessly taken
i.fi. LEAD from the lat? Arsenal here, under
the impression i li?t i de Government would not
need or ciai n it. Except iood, nothing is now
so important ?o our artnies, as all importations
of jt are now eui. off, and no substitute for it
can be found. I therefore respectfully but ear?
nestly eppeal to all who have any of the Lead
lately at the C. S. Arsenal here, to return it to
me at once, for our soldiers will'put it to much
better use than citizens can.
