WEDNESDAY.:..AUG 6, 1P62 reward of merit. In carrying on warfare, heretofore, nations have relied mainly upon generalship and the brivery of their troops. The Federal Government have inaugurated a new system. For generalship they put lying; and for bravery they use long-range guns, spades, iron-clad gunboats, and ste>l vests. Of the two, we believe the Government places lying highest in i ts importance as a necessary of war ; and to the largest and most unblushing liar gi^es the highest reward. It has illustrated this disposi- tion time and again, but in no case more promi nently than in its promotion of Halleck, the Major General Liar of the West, to the chief command of armies. We have had occasion to refer before to the shameful falsehoods which have been put forth without a blush by. that government. The fact is the very foundation of the war Is a lie, and every document put forth concerning It by that power Has so far been steeped in falsehood. How braaenly it puts '.forth o...
