When the main armv shall have been concentrated, the hero of Lundy's Lane will lead them the Capital of Mexico. We understand that a high military authority in Washington has expressed the opinion that the volunteer forces cannot be concentrated on the Rio Grande before the close of August of the open ing of September. The task of collect ing such force from our widely extended territory, organizing and preparing them for the field, cannot be effected, even with the most strenuous exertions, before :hat period. The army will consist of twenty odd thousand men, and will be jicvided with all that is necessary to in sire triumph. This measure will meet the approba tion of the entire American public.
