The importance of this suggestion
cannot be questioned for a moment.—
Its necessity must commend itself to
the judgment of every candid and ear
nest patriot. We all concede that, the
times are momentous; perhaps more
so than has been the case in the past
history of our once united; but now
distractedy , lankt- -.The - Rebellion has
- assumed vast and terrible proportions.
Its eiders and abettors seem to be gui
ded and controlled by a fiend-like do
termination to rule or ruin, to conquer
or die., No effort is abated ;no stretch
of power .is left untried in their nefari
ous purpose to destroy the best Gov=
ernment in the , -World. gvery man
and every gun, and every source of
aid and power, are pressed into their
side Of the conflict, with the seeming
intention that our fair Republic shall
be torn to pieces, and that we shall
have anarchy, misrule and wretched
ness in its stead. ,
- And, let us not underrate either the
intentions or the strength of these
wicked men. Indeed, we have done
so too long already. They are just as
determined now, as they were three
years'ago. Their strength may not
be ae great; but their intentions are
none the less abated. Their, purpose
is, to conquer, or be conquered; they
Will fight until they are destroyed.--
With this feeling they commenced the
conflict, and this feeling will continue
with them to its close.
How sad it is, too, to reflect that
they aro not alone in this unholy work.
They have their alders, and abettors in
alt parts of these ,loyal States. Men
may, be found by scores, who st}de
themselves loyal, and who enjoy the
protection of the very government
which they aro aiding, to, destroy,
