WHERE WILL IT END? Could some power bestow upon President Lincoln and his advisers the gift of seeing themselves as others see them, what a picture would their handiwork, as read in this once happy and favoured continent of North America, present to their view! (writes the Times correspondent from Richmond). A broad belt of devastation sweeps for hundred of miles along the frontier which separates the exasperated combatants, and within its precincts fire and sword, and havoc and rapine have done their worst. In no other words can the desolation of Northern Virginia. and Tennessee find such forcible exposition as in those of the prophet Joel:— That which the palmerworm hath left hath the locust eaten, and that which the locust hath left hath the canker- worm eaten, and that which the cankerworm hath left hath the caterpillar eaten. Behind, a gloomier vision ascends. The whole land groans with dungeons and bastilles-in the North 34,000 Confederates, in the South nearly 20,000 Federals languish in imprisonment—in both sections an unknown number of suspected, and often, unoffend- ing civilians and women pay the penalty of imputed opinion. In the North, Johnson's Island, Forts Warren, Lafayette, Delaware, and M'Henry, Camp Chase, and Camp Douglas are words of terror known throughout the civilised globe in the South, Castle Thunder, the Libby Prison, Belle Isle, Danville, and Americus are choking with prisoners, and there is a cry for increased prison accommodation. Where, it may well be asked, will it all end ? Is the precarious tenure of Tennessee, which may be wrested from him any day, and which is substantially all the success which his armies have gained this year, sufficient to justify President Lincoln in continuing the anguish of so large a portion of the human race for yet another year ?
