VOLUME XX IV This isjne of the Reading (fazelle commences its twenty-fourth year; The present publisher, who was also one of its projectors, finds no little gratification, and some degree of pride, in contrasting its small beginnings and timid experimental effortsltrita the fixed, permanent, and Self-sustaining position it now holds among the newspapers of the interior of the State. The Gazette is old enough to speak for itself and to take care of itself; and, in circulation and influence, has attained to a point beyond which few weekly presses _eyer reach. Its subscription list , Which has been steadily increasing, from the date of Us first publication, was never so well filled with good, paying subscribers as at this time; and its increase at present is more rapid than ever. Since the first of January, 18C3, we have entered more new names upon onr books than were added daring any previous year of its existence ; and new subscribers are still coming in daily.

The greatest fault imputed to him is excessive caution and lack of self confidence. Bat this Arises from a just appreciation of the difficulty of hia task.

McClellan was gradually feeling his way and fitting himself to be a great military leader. He •was becoming bolder and bolder every day, and more expert in handling a large army, ft8 at Antietam, when his career was cut short by an order from Washington, and inferior men put in hia place. It is not in a year or two years that a soldier, even With a good military education, but who has seen little or no service, can rise from the position of a captain of cavalry to that of a successful general commanding 100,000 men. How long did it take to make the victor...

our country into anarchy, ending in military despotism, and destroying all our hopes for the future, JletUeed, That _resistance by force to an invasion of our personal freedom is a virtue ; and if the insane threat of a distinguished military chieftain, (distinguished more lor the position he holds, than for achievements in arms) to put his _Iipo! upon the necks of Northern men, be attempted to be carried out, we _promisa him a warm reception. In order to allay any undue excitement, however, that might be occasioned by this threat, we deem it proper to add, that, as this same authority has informed us, that we are not to be molesit'.', until i.bo rebels ava first 8ub_« dued; we are of opinion, judging by past progress, that the present, generation at tho l_^rth can hardly fuel themselves interested iu the question.
