' Alexander crossed the Dardanelles with less than half Lee's army, and con quered all Asia,, after, defeating in two battles the Persian posts led by King Darius. The Greeks, on their own soil at Marathon,, eighty, years before, had, under the lead of a brilliant goncral, Miltiades, broken (he prestige of the Persian arms till that time regarded as invincible and .less than . ;twenty:five thousand drove back to their ships oue hundred thousand, invaders. Jt was now the turn of the Greeks to iuvade Persia, with Alexander at their head. At that time Persia threatened all the nations of the earth with subjugation. The Macedonian conqueror, with, bis phalanx defeated Darius at the head of sixty thousand men. near Tarsus, on tne Isbus. . The result was the poesession of Syria and all the riches of Damascus. After overrunning Asia Miuor, the coast of the Mediterranean, the Black Sea and Eevnt. Alexander returned west ward and crossed tho Euphrates, to again encouuter Darius, at the head of a far larger army than before. Die met him at Arabia, in Assyria, and aga'.u de feated him this time the defeat being decisive of the fate of the Persian era pire. A few days after the battle Al exander entered Babylon, "the oldest seat of earthly empire," 'and tbcuce and valleys of Maryland and Pennsyl vania, and, in a great measru'e, depeuds for ammunition on what be expects to capture from pur armies. If Lee should turn out to be a Napoleon, a William the Conqueror, a Caisar, a Hannibal or an Alexander, and if we have no general of ability to cope with him, he may, with iUU,0U0 veterans, overrun, the whole of the Northern States. If Gen. Meade should prove victori ous in this campaign be will be bailed as tne most illustrious soldier in the coun try the victor of an American Water loo The destiny of America for ceutu ries to come depend on the decisive day which is now at hand.

Alexander did not depend for supplies upon his ewn country, but on the countries which his arms suo dued. Similar to this, on bsmaller scale, was the career of Hannibal, the Carthage nian general, who, crossing the Straits of Gibraltar, subdued all the nations of Spain, and aftei wards crossed the Alps, hitherto deemed impassable, and inva ded Italy. lie defeated tbe Roman General Scipio, on the Ticinus, and af terwards both Scipio and Semproniusr on the Trebia. He afterwards, with fifty tboHsaud men, met at Canncc Tcr eeutius and Euoilius.the two chief mag istratos of the Roman republic, (called consuls,) and defeated their army with such slaughter that forty thousand lay dead on the field. Had be rapidly fol lowed up this victory Rome itself would ave easily fallen into his bauds. Dy giving his soldiers too much repose at Capua, where they became enervated by pleasure and luxury, he lost bis oppor tunity. Meantime a naval expedition was ntted out by the Romaus against Carthage, whicb induced the Cartbage- uian government to call their general borne to repel tne invasion. Ttiis was a fatal blunder. Hannibal was defeat ed on Lis own soiU in a decisive battle at Zama, near Carthage, by the younger bcipio, eon of tbe hrst Roman general he bad defeated Haughty Carthage was compelled to sue for peace, which was granted: but she never recovered the blow, aud the Romans iu a future war blotted their rival out of existence. In the case of Julius Ctcsar we have another example of bold invasion like that of Lee. With a .comparatively small army Ciesar penetrated Gaul (France,) and., subdued it from th Rhine and Mount Jura to the ocean Subsequently he invaded and conquered bis owu country with a still smaller force. Without any certain base of supplies, he from rtbe . Roman province, of which he was military governor, over the tbe boundary of tbe Roman repub lic proper, on pretence of redressing the wropgs of a tribune of the people. He subdued, all Italy in sixty days, aud pur sued. l'ompey, -the general of the repub lic, into Thessajy, where, with less than 25,030, veterans, be defeated his oppo nent at the head of an army of 44,090 men. Thus Lee, with an army of about 100,000 meu, enters the Northern States, with no secure, base of supplies behind bim, and bis communication with Rich- moud liable to be cut off at any moment. He calculates upon living upon the country and of establishing temporary bases of operations as be proceeds. If he wins he comes out all right; but if he is badly beaten he is lost. In like manner William the Conquer or crossed the narrow channel which di vides France ftpm England, conquered the army of the reigning king in the de cisive battle of. Hastings, and thus found ed a hew dyhasty, which has endured to this day, completely changing tne insti tutions of England, and making her What otherwise she never would have been a great Power on the earth. ' It is worthy of remark wth what small forces these great achievements' were ac complished. Tho Athenians, at Mara thon, with less than 25,000 men, over throw the Persian host, 100,000 strong. Alexander crossed into' Asia with less than 40,000 men.. Hannibal conquered nearly all Italy with the same number. Umsar, with little more tnan Halt tne number, conquered tbe whole country and permanently overthrew the republic William of Normaady had only sixty thousand in his expedition. ; The two. armies now1 about to come into deadly collision exceed the forces at Waterloo, which changed the destiny of Europe. Generalship is more important than numbers. .Napoleon Ronaparte. witn thirty thousard ragged troops, crossed the Alps, flung himself into the midst of tbe large armies or Austria and baram ia-dofeated them in detail, and conquer ed Italy. ,, He bad do provisions far his army, no paseoi supplies; out aa uis troops descended to the fruitful' plains of Lombardy he., pointed out .the fat of the land, which he told , them was theirs if they would go' and take it.

We find ia-the Boston Courier the particulars of an encounter which took .place at Lowell, Masl, a few days since, between a hard-lifted mechanic and Gen. Butler.. The principal facts, as tbey were detailed to tbe Courier, are these "Mr. Russell, who is a mason in Lowell, was employed by a Mr. Eastman, the agent oi uen. iiutier, to lay tne pipes la a drain wbicb Eastman bad dug on the Geueral's premises. The laying of tne pipes was nearly completed, one on ly of the sections lying by the side of tbe trench. At this time Gen. B. came towards Mr. Russell: and nrilereri liim io remove a large stone within the side of the drain, and some distaace'beneath tne surtace of, tbe ground, saying it would interfere with the plough. To this Mr. Russell, objected, stating that it was bis business to lay tho pipes, and not to dig tbe drain, which bad been prepared for his work by Eastman. Thereupon Gen. B., with violent and profane language, ordered him to leave premises. Mr. Russell told linn he was employed by another person, and did not look to him for hia pay, and should finish the drain. Gen. B. thon kicked the section of the pipe into tbe drain, which Mr. Russell picked up and placed again in its former position. Re peating tbe oaensive language, Gen. 13. kicked .athe pipe over again, and as Mr. Russell was attempting to replace it, he received a violent blow in the face. We understand that, subsequently, Gen. b., alleged this to have been an accident; but the statements on the. ether side do not correspond with that view of the case. Mr. Russell immediately jumped trom tbe ditcb and as quickly Uen. a, was fiat upon the ground and Mr. Rus sell bad him by the throat and held him there. General Butler is alleir- ' The Black Heifer Party. Major Jack Downing hits off the ul tra Administration policy,' in tbe eon- duct of the war, in the following pointed style, The black-heifer mark makes loose work, and is coasiderabely con spicons: . "The warWBAeen carried on oy us ust like old Sol Pandegrast's boy plowed. Old Sol took his oldest boy Adam, a thickheaded teller, out one spring morning and set him to plowing. lie told him to go to work and strike a furrow across the field to a black heif er, and then keep on. After giving him his direcehin, old Sol went off to tbe house, and let Adam alone. The boy started hia oxen in a bee line for the hlnnk hmfpr hut when he trot rjrettv close to her, she threw up her tail and ran off in another direcshin. Adam thought he must follow, the black heifer till he come to her, no matter where she weut; he struck another bee line for her, and with just the same result. When he got close to her, the black heifer gave another frisk with her tail, and oil suo went. Adam geed bis oxen around, and struck for her again; and so he kept on all day. At nito tbe old man come out to see bow Adam bad got along. He found the field all cut up with fur rows, zig-zig, criss-cross, an in every direcshin, and asked Adam wat on arth it all ment? " Wal," sez the thick- head ed numskulll, "you told me to steer for the black heifer, an I've dun it all day, but the darned oritur wouldn't stand still, and so tbe furrows are kine ov criss-cross, you see." Now, scz L. that's jest w'unt Linkum baa been doing. Greeley told him to steer for the nigger, an the result is like Adam Pandegrast's plowing. There' s considerable fight ing been done, bnt it's all criss cross, zig-zag, and don't amount to nothin. If he'd have steered for the Union under the Constitution, it would ov been all up with Jeff. Davis afore uow." Better than That- Th Emperor Joseph, of Austria, was one day taking a ride in bis carraige, ana a euarp shower of rain came on, wnenan oia lnvalide hobbled to the door, and asked bim if he would-n)low him to get in, as he had his new uniform on for the first time, and he did not wish to get jt spoiled.. The Emperor acquiesced, and they soon got iuto conversation. Among other things, tbe old soldier mentioned that he bad such a capital breakfast that morning. "What was it?" asked tbe Emperor. "Well," said the lnvalide, ."guess." The Emperor good-bumoredly com-' plied, aud went over all the dishes ia vonge among the military, to all of which he' got tbe answer of "Better than that" At last, finding that the stranger coubj not gueBs it, the old soldier ac knowledged, with great glee, that he bad taken aphrasant out of the Imperial preserves. The Emperior seemed to think it a good joke, and the topic was dropped. Wheu they had been recounting pome' of his experiences on tbe battle-Geld , said to the stranger: "loulook like a military man your self, sir; what position might you hold?" well," said tbe Emperor, much a- mused, "guess!" Alter having repeated all the erades in the army from sergent up to the field- marsnoi, to all of which he got the an-' swer, "Better than- that," the truth of wuo the stranger was seemed to flash upon his mind, and his confusion can be better imagined tbau described. His coaching expedition was, however, par- done by the Emperor, and the story of their meeting was ever after a favor--itejokeat court. ed to have mado no resistance; but after holding him as long as he thought necessary, Mr. Russell allowed him to rise, and accompanied him a hundred or two hundred rods out of the field. We learn that Mr. Russell told the General that he was an old man, over sixty years of age, and had never before been assailed in this way; that the Gen eral must remember he was in Massachu setts, not New Orleans ; and that such conduct as his would not be tolerated on New England soil. He also told him it was no wonder we were beaten by the Confederates, when such officers led our meu; that, for bis own part, he was the graudson of a revolutionary father, who was killed by the British in bis owu house, (at Lexington,) and be himself and the other descendants of that man had been true to their Democratic principles. Re minding the General of his action at the Charleston Convention and of his polit ical tergiversations in general, Mr. Rus sell then left bim. Roman Ladies. A writer npon this subject' remarks: "The women of Rome know nothing of these, restraints' which delicacy, mod- esty, and. virtue imposes, upon the sex of Northern Europe. A Roman lady who takes n liking to a foreigner, does not cast her' eyes down when he looks at her,' but fixes them upon him long and with evi deut pleasure; nay, she gazes at him a- lone, whenever sbo meets bim in com pany, at chnrch, at theater, or in her walks. She will Bay, without ceremony, to a friend of the young man's: ' "Tell that gentleman I like him.''' If the man of her choice feels' the like sentiment, and asks I "Are you fond of me?" She replies with the utmost frankness "Yes, dean," ! The happy medium between A merican and Roman courtship appears to us tho best.' Wd hate excessive coy ness, but don't like too much familiarity We have heard an anxious lover, whose charmer well pleased with witnessing the evidence of per power, was bent upon keeping him upon the rack of uncertain ly as to the extent of her affections for him, say that to him. this Roman frank ness would be enchanting he would have anything rather than the coquetry that is second nature to American belles.
