Consequences of Victory.

There is no more striking indication of the influence of the Union successes in Pennsylvania and Tennessee, than the changed tone of the Copperhead press in reference to the war. For instance, the Register, while avowedly standing on a platform which condemns the "further offensive prosecution of the war," professes to believe that "the victory at Gettysburg shows us the end of the rebellion." Indeed! and do the Copperhead presses at last begin to see that "the end of the rebellion" is to be attained by victories in the very war whose prosecution they condemn, and which they profess to believe is calculated to prevent the restoration of the Union? The self-contradictions of Copperheadism are numerous and apparent.
