It may be observed in passing, that in no respect ia
'.be contrast more strongly marked between E iglish and
“American" manners than in the different style and tone
.jf the newspaper press of the respective countries. For,

of events would uot be uniformly garbled and infh'ed

that they can be misled. 0 i tbe other hand, among us

J from all reliable iutelligcnce of the position and proa
>ec a of the “rebel*;" and we cannot help r- jjotiug the
earvolous tales, deriied from Northern sources, of hard
«ou victories against heavy odds, and of the daily
slaughter of the en tuy In nand-to-hand conflicts which
never lead to any appreciable results.
Und.r thesecircuma'ancea, a statement, comparative
,f both sides of the position, aud derived from recent
.leraonal observation, which the facilities (Horded by the
nilitary commanders enabled the writer to make, may
tot bs unacceptable to our readers, at a time when tbe
mpreesions of writer) In magazines aud newspapers on
tbo subject of tbe American war, all along uncertain and
(actuating, appear 13 bs affected by recent accounts or

of the resources of the contending communities appe-r*

I'uiiti not long since said, “the tide may be too atronc
iven for the obstinacy ot tbe Southern race to resist."

'ie limit tas owned, Englishmen at Washington and
New York be led insemioly, by the boastful language of
ne new paper) aud of public men, almost to a conviction
if the strength of tbe oommunity amongst which they

Treasury wiu'd, on its part, have opened a war loan to
the pubiic nn teMin which would have diverted from lb •
banks the investments essential to their stability; while
an appropriation of (heir bullion for the necessities if
the Union would hardly have been a diffi :ulty to tbs
Government which has fourd tbe Ui ited Slut* s’ cons i
tution so rlae'ic, and would crtaiuly not have beeu cav
illed at by ibe despotic majority. The bank directors
probably thought that, as far as tiny were concerned,
of two great .lingers, tbe chauces of war were, on the
whole, tbe leseer uud more remote.
4 Uut plainly impending are the consequences of the
present system. The safeguards ordained by tbe authors
of the constitution have long been withdrawn. Federal
Republic*! ism lias become Democratic Absolutism,,
which has borne its natural fruits—the exlirction i f p ■
eonal liberty, a lettered pres*, a reckless expenditure.
An iueonver ihlc currercy cannot be remote; and mean
while the proved and alleged disbouesty of the de
partments produce general diatitnr, which goes the
length ol a belief that -some members ot the Govern
ment would plunge the coun'ry tuto foreign war from
personal aud fclfiih considerations. Woral ol all, Iln
wideepread distress which must attend upon the col
lapse of all foreign trade, if we except tho export ot
corn from the West—the stagnation of manufsc- t
tores, except such as reive the devouring jiws ol j
war—tbe rapid absorption by the war of capital with
drawn from investments—the additional liability til j
tbe No tb in the event of Southern independent) bei g
maintained, for those portion* ot the War dobt which ibe j
Government pretend to allocate to the seceded States,— !
must give the governing, because the most numerous
clast, a motivo te nbly forcible for presting On their del
egates tiaacc a! measures tho most itascrupulou* and i
ui wt ruinous to tluir country.
Such are someof tbo el‘meats of early difficulty which 1
beset America ; but for tbe present tbe question is one
ol war, and we proceed to consider bow far tbe new
Confederacy may be expected to maintain its position a
a iU facto Government, against tbs great armameuts o' |
tbe Federal (Joiiemtnent. The Government has drawn I
without stint upou the national resources, aud tbe news
papers arc never tired of declaring that tbe country pos
sesses a ‘magnificent and overwhelming army,’ tbe oneet
of which we continue to await.
Dut we must not, like tbe Americans, in their sargu'ur
anticipations, forget that of the rank and file of this
grand army the ohief part is lit le more experienced than
u was at tne battle ot the 21st of July—that iu offieerr
are taken Irom the same claw as they were on that day,
and elected in the same manner—and that of all the
causes to which the rout of Manssaos has beeu attributed
none is better proved thsu the incapacity of tbe regi
mental officers. Tbe uulitnes* of the great mass of ihi
general officers for their poetion is a neces-ity. Mur. •
over, a large and we believe tbe most trustworthy pari
the Federal army is composed of foreigners ; and al
though the Germ ins are vau tble for their aptitude for
drill, and the Irish for ihcir courave. their services cai -
uot In tbe offspring of a pitriotm spirit, which might
compeua'.e lor a defective discipline. They are ju-.t
such troops as high pay will attract to any seivice in the
world; but the time essential to their military education
has been wanting. Ol the soldiers who can properly b<
called Americans, we believe that many joined their reg
iments trom a belief that Washington was threatened
with capture, aud their native S'ates with invasion. 1
is curious that iu the North, by many, tbe awakening of
the military spirit is ascribed to the il judged speecu 01
Mr. Wa'ker, then Confederate Secretary ot War, wh
promised to the acceding States tbat "their banner s iou'U
wave over the Capitol, while in the Sou b, in in who
f rmeily, and up to a late dale, were stout Unionist, de
dare that Mr. Lincoln’s proclamation ia which he caller,
for a war upon the South, alone alioualed their lov«l ■.
It is much to be doubted whether many of the Amricai •
burn soldi, rs calculated on or desire the invasion of iha
Southern Slates.
It is evident too, that, though the contidenco expn as
el by the Northern newspapers in the invincible c utrac
ter of tbs army la unabated, it is hardly shared by the
commanders. Their men .tires within their lines ou tf.i
r ght bauk of tbo Potomac are rather calculated for de
feces, or for a re ure retreat, than ior tho advance ol si
eager and "iirpcamg army.” Kvery road is cominandnl
by powerful batteries aud breastworks—every hillocf
crowned with a redoubt—every mile to which the re
t eating enemy encourages the advance of tin ir outposts
is mat ked by fresh fieldworks ol the strongest deociip
The Northern army may probably consist, according
to tbe most circumstantial statements, of 360 mat men,
for the larger estimatsa evidently include, among thus,
raised by the various States, the "throo month)’ men,'
afterwards disbanded. Frequent complaints reach us as
to the elackueas of the rtcrut it g in New York and othrr
eastern States. Many of the :<6() 000 must be as yet
very little drilled, and few have seen four mouths ser
vice. There must be also a cousid irable daily diinin •
liou by carnalities. A gentleraau who profe sed to le
well informed, but who was himself bound by no office
reesrve, stated that he II id an exact account of the ani
vil of troops at Washlr.gto .i from the date of the bank
of Mauiss 'sto the middle of Oclober.and that tbeir u':m
t> [{ lul not exceed 6u,000 It is likely,therefore,that Mr
iUi-rell’s recent estim tie of tho "Army of the Potomac,”
at li»l,00d, is not much below the mark, including prob
ably about 1 Ltd pieces of aitillery. Yst, if the i'.denl
General baa such a force at his command ou thd line ol
the Potomac, wo should tall into a gravb mistake were
we toco-ulude trom i-)perieucect Kuropta i or any otbi r
r.-gultr troops that he is in a position to advance tar in
to a diHienl'. aud hoatile country, to Id l>y a waiy and
resolute enemy.
We have seen it iu)-limed by tbe Titiun in one of its
sp-eulalive moments, that "without sending * nun trom
t ic army d. s'ined to protect Washington and to ndvat «e
ioto Virginia, the Fidorsl Government can .It eat expe
ditions upou other points which they may judge assail
able." It is true that as lh-y have just done, the trov
er mieot can, will) the command of the sea, direct expo
■lilions to any paint, and that they have in other quar
ters Urge forces in tin- ft IJ ; but besides having to leave
ton ot Maty lend, it limit l>« remembered that tbeir
forces have tailed to gain a ihngle succors (iu tbe KurO
peati sense,) i£wc except tbe capture ol Uapc Hatu ra
uuder the guns of rnen-of eat,and from thence they h v>
failed to adv ince ; that they nave sustained several ie
nous defeats, one ol which resulted iu a three iiiuuthr

they helplo i'y see the navigation ol the Potomac clo.-ed
that 'ro.u Kentucky the most rauguiuit bulltlm ai

garrison, and containing huge stores of arms, ainmunl
tion and treasure,; and tha since he took the ti-Id te

the generals, who almost uniformly roporl that they have
been opposed hy vastly supt ri. r toices, is to be r lied
on, the couclusiou is irri simbl - that either the miuibers
of ihe Northern aiiuyaro grossly exaggerated, or that
i s generals are woefully interior to their euruty iu the
imporlaut art of bringing their troops to tho poiuts at
which they are reqif red.
Tbe conditous ol tbe oolites'. will appear still more &!

lerfurm'ng all tbe duties of an army b fore tbe eni uiv,
and are still animated by tbe memories of those victo

imagined f out the fact that one battery which was hot

never before tired ball, aud that one battalliou (of iasn
ianx) stood its ground for hour* against repeated at

Further, the Southern fares ia possessed of ebiueotl
of strength which might comp-uaau lor greater numer
ical di-parity. Ilia commanded beyond all qneatiou by
tbe moxt talented ofti.-t is of tbe late United State* ar
my. Few without actual military aiperience bold tbe
comma d even c-f brigsd*e,— md vety young “ West
i'oiiitt Iticera” held couai-ti table command* which, but
for the jealcuay of the Sou'.l eru public cf tivllliau torn
nt i inlets, might have been given, a* in the North, to in
ti iencial politician*. While Gener*I M' Ilellan himself,
great a* bis ati'itie* ars admitted to be, nevt r bald a
command, and had, before tbe separation of the 3uti *,
retired to a civil appoiutmeut, at least twenty of tbs
Cooled rate generals were brigadier or field officers of
tbe late United Sutea army, an I eight or Uu others
co ti'ti unfed brigades in tbs Mexican war. Hitherto
ibeir tactics have hardly bten chargeable with a blunder,
while in many instances their piaus have been eminent
ly well laid and successful.
Nothing is more conspiruoua than the confidence dis
played by the army in its geurral*. When every sol
dier is something of a politician, stems to understand
the features of the Southern case, and to be acquainted
with the geography and the otjecU of the tampaigo, it
ii tetnarkaMe to Uod a universal belief in tbe ptudeocc

auch a ferliug is coustamly exprt *»d ; and this confl
uence appears to be mutual, the general* relying on
■heir meu. There seems among tbe superiora to he an
assurance, resting upon prearations completed,on troop*
willing, orderly, aud improving—oc past succ» sses and
on what is believtd to be a patriotic cause. The at my
itself, to he understood, must be seen and inspected.—
Roughly, irregu'arly, often quaintly clothed, not unlike
a certain British army whose clothing was a little long
delayed, but with something like s soldier)/ appetrsnee
—with bright and generally well carried arms, alert on
dutr, very rapid on tbe march—they do not look like
meu to be readily subdued. Tbe cavalry consist* of
meu accustomed to constant liorsemat ship ; they gene
rally bring their own horses into the servioe, aud their
a .titude is proved by the rapidity aud accuracy of tbs
movements ol strong squadrons quite lately formed.—
Kven Northerners admit the superior discipline of the
tJoafedertUa, as shown in respecting the pioperty Dear
which they are quartered. We ourselves saw bow tho
country in the neighborhood of their camps bore no
marks of spoliation ; aud iu route instances, we are sorry
to *nv,iu which, when it fell into the hands of the Olli
er side, the most wufltou and cruel destruction ensued.
Tnoarmy certainly iu Virginia and, w* beiitve, evr
rfwhero, is plentifully fed; the difficulties of provision
ing reported by Northeru papers are visionary. Two
comities of Virginia slone have meat enough to supply
the aruiirs for two years; and sveu duriug October,
when it had occupied the same district for four months,
the animals destined lor its supply were driven info
c.tnip from no great distance The harvest has been
plentiful; the price ol t orn in R'cbinond is but two thirds
of that of last year ; and the gilts ol food which are
seut to soldiers trout their friends are often so numerous
<is to e xceed the power of the railways to convey
Inaction it the Lite nuir of the Confederate soldier,
who b>s come very often from the far aoutb and west
with the idea of an early conflict with tbe invader. He
welcomes the comparative excitement of the three days'
outpost duty, performed iu turn by regiments detailed
one from each of a certain number of brigade*, and
petition* are ofien made fo have the period extended.—
Their inaction has caused much s cknes', obit fly measles,
which at'tcked especially men accustomed to wholesome
country lile—the tnaitsts sayrfs of New Orleans being
the healthiest. These at'ack* usually loft tbe convales
cent wcuk, and pred-spofltd to low and sometimes ty
phoid fevers. During the early autumn Ike Ooufederate
Hospitals were crowded ; but now the epidemics have
csssed, and every report of an expected engagement
briugs hundreds of couvslcsceu's to the front. A* the
probability of renewed lighting becomes greater, eveu
the sick go r lucUolly to the rear by tbe railway.
The inoveahility of the army dea-rvtja notice. Etch
brigade can strike i;s camp aud pick its baggage on its
Ctrl* in twenty m nute-; change of camp by'some of
the brigs'es it often made—so that, concealed by tbe
parlially-cleaicd forest, its enemy knows not from day
today how far it* H inks extend. Though less numerous
probably fbau the federal army opposed 10 it, Ike Con
federate commando e, as we have already remarked,

the federal* say, a superior force to every point attack
Bu' tho most interesting feature iu this tr

cotnpjeed almost entiitly of American* Iu its ranks,
a* suhuilierit* and even as privates, art to he found many
men of wealth aud good social position serving from a
sense of the necessity lor united national * trrtiou, and
obeeru.il/ performing even duty. A rough-looking seu
