"I COULD ror," says Jieneral Mc-
Clellan, "look in the face of my gallant
comrades of the army and, navy, who,
have survived so many bloody battles,
and tell, them that their labors and the
sacrifice of so, many.. of our slain and
wounded brethren had been in vain.—
That wo had abandoned that Union. for,
which we haye so often perilled our.
lives." Qf courseyou• could not, but
how can you look in their flees now
that, you.have accepted a nomination
,from.. a .Convoution, which declares
that those" galiant comrades" had la
bored, sacrificed and bled to no pur
pose, arid that, the first thing to be
done was to make . immediate eXerts
.for the cessation of hostilities? How
can you look into their faces, knowing,
as you do, that, you are used as a tool
by a party, which is doing all it can to,
prevent those comrades from being,
reinforced, which is ready to sacrifice
them in order to .conciliate the public
enemy, which is fomenting those divis

tee to the People of' the United S'tates
NEW YORK, Sept.,9,
The great rebellion, which for more
than three'years has wrapped the MI:
tion in the flames of civil wfir, draws
near its crisis. Its, armies have he,en
beaten, its territories has been eon
.quered, the forts'and posts which' it
treacherously seized have been occu
pied and held by the soldiers Ot
RePublic, its foreign , allies have been
detached from its support, and its hos
tile arm, paralyzed by exhaustion and
discouraged by defeat, is upheld solely
by the hope of political victories 'to be
achieved by its allies in the Presiden
tial election of November next.
• If the People] in that election
taro the Government, if they —l reatiscrt,
its just authority and reafftrri - i ; their
purposele maintain war So long
as war. assails it, the rebellion will,
speedily end. If they falter .in this
determination, or leave any 'room for
doubt on . this tital'point, the -. 'rcbels
will take fresh' courage and :proleng,
the contest. Every utterance .of their
organs and , their,ltgents affirms' and
confirms this • position. Every:!rel39l,
in aims and.oVery rebel in office . verY
rebelsorgan in the rebel States : dr in.
foreign lands—every hater of .Demo , (
cratic Freedom and the Rights of man
longs and labors for the overthroW of
the administration and the expulsion,
of Abraham. Lincoln from the • Presi
dential chair..
- • In the Northern and Western
States this hostility has been Olubedo
ied and organized in the . aeli and de
clarations of the Chicago Convention.
That conventioc gives a silent' appro
val of the rebellion itself, and•anopen
condemnation of the war Vaged,,ihr
its suppression. Without a. word of
Censure for the conspirators who plot
ted the nation's death, it brands , with.
unsparing denunciation the patrietsH
and heroes who defend its life. While
it passes in utter Silence the gigantip,
usurpations of Jefferson Davis and his
confederate traitors—while ; it over
looks.entirely, and.thus, , by . justilnd
necessary inferende,'apprOVp's'' their:
abrogation of political rights:, and per-,

That Convention had no words of
exultation •for our victories; no thanks
and honors for the sokliers and 'sailors
Who have shed their blood to trehieve,
thcin. While it denounces Our
ernment for neglect of duty toward
our "fellow, citizens, who are. .now;
and:long have been prisoners of war
in a suffering condition," it has riot
even a syllable of censure for those re
bel autherities,who, with 'more. ',than
savage,eruelty, and in utter, disregard
of every dictate of .humanity,, , as , well
as of every usage of civilized warfare,.
have deliberately and with systematic
purpose inflicted upon' those priSoners
all the tortures, of expoStuT, of n r eglecf,,

We appeal to, the people', of the limi
ted ',States—lovers 'of the Union arid
friends of Freedem—against the con
summation of tho foul' crime against
both which ,th,e, acts and declaratiOns
of the Chicago 'Convention involve.
We invoke them not to sanction
. these
principles and sentitnents by electing
the cUndidaide put forward_ to repre
sent them. We implore them, as'they
love their country, as they,'seek
s integrity of its territory', as
they desire the peaceful protection of
its flag, and the blessing of, its free, in:
stitutions and its c,stual laWS,fbr them
selves andtheir posterity, not to, ar

Wo call upon. the people to bear in
mind that, by whatever sophistries
they. may cloak their purposes,: the
Chicago Convention neither condemns
the action .of the Richmond rebels,. nor
proposes to expel:thorn against their
