The Blame for Manassas.

We copy from the New York Times an article on the Manassas repulse, and the causes thereof, which lays bare many weak places in the management of matters connected with the war. It shows that the errors which have been committed are mainly attributable to the strife and jealousy of conflicting cliques of the dominant party — that instead of uniting for the common patriotic purpose of quelling rebellion and maintaining the integrity of the country, these politicians are struggling with each other for ascendency are struggling with each other for ascendency in the government councils whereon to base advantage for future partisan purposes. Coming from so prominent and influential a republican source as the New York Times, it will be read with much interest, while the candid reader cannot but conclude that the views advanced are, in the main, correct.
