The two political heresies Secession and
Abtitionism, have trach had able advo
cates i 11 both sections of our country in
the Senate and ii Congress. The South
boasta of her secession leaden, Davis,
Toombs, Cobb, Wise.and a host of others,
who have engaged (o praotically demon
strate their heresy. In the north, we
have such champions as Sumner, did
dings Wade, Chandler, and Hal", who
boldly fuced their brother heretics from
tha South on the floor of the Senate and
the House ; but now, when they have
brought the present tnlamity upon the
nation, these northern champions reCure
to practically engage in carrying out their
Abolition theory. Unlike their allies in
the South, who say corns they meanly
skulk about their homes urging men to
50 I The blustering courage formerly ex
hibited by them on the floor of Congress
seems to hare totally evaporated. It
would look much better for Mr. umner
and Lis colaborers here in the north, to
go and meet their former equal upon the
field of carnage, and thereby demonstrate
to the whole country the honesty of their
purpose. Thus, while Davis, Toombs,
Wise k Co., ara In tha front rank of their
Army, we find such patriots (!) -is Sum
ner, Ureely, Wtde A Co., babbling about
home, and laboring zealously lo bring
about a division in the North ; similar to
that inaugurated by them bet'veon the
North and the South. If as Mr. Sumner
alleges iu his speech, this wur must re
sult in the emancipation of tho negroes
and mutt bo proteoulcd with that result
in view, why doei he not step forward and
lead a regiment ''on to Richmond? ' and
thus demonstrate the feasibility of hit
AMilion heresy.
One of two things is putent in the con
duct of Mr. Sumner and his colaborers
here in the North, they have cither full
confidence that the Administration at
Washington will do for them what they
desirA and claim as a duty upon the pint
of the government to free the slaves ; or,
they are demagogues and cowards of tho
meanest kind.

their ability is unquestionable. We re

Capt. Young carried tho orders to the
