The movements ■of both sides are "watched with the most absorbing interest. Nothing else is talked about. Public expectation hangs about the great crisis, and everybody regards the events of the next thirty or forty days as decisive of the late of this year's campaign.

Even if they could, we should still have gained the vast advantage of demonstrating to the world that we are a nation of freemen. If, on the other hand, the enemy is cessful at all points the future of this country will be dark for years. Our people will not submit. A conquering foe cannot compromise. It could only be when we could organize a resis- tan...
