Gen. Burnside and the Vallifiers of the Administration.

Never did a more disgraceful failure attend any cause than that which has attended the efforts of those who, for a week past, have been assailing the President and the Cabinet, charging them with responsibility for the attack on Fredericksburg. Gen. Burnside, in his letter to Halleck, distinctly and unequivocally assumes the responsibility of making the attack when and where it was made. His communication is a model of manly candor, and will elevate him in the estimation of all loyal men. That he had reason to anticipate success, and that the attack would have been successful, but for the untoward circumstances which caused delay in making it, no one who understands the character of our brave soldiers or their gallant leader has a right to doubt.

What now will the New York World and its servile imitators do?
