To this and to all like departures from the Constitution, and from good faith and sound policy, we are, and must remain unalterably opposed. I say like departures, lor the pretence of military necessity, up on which emancipation bas been announ ced, has been extended to other subjects beside the slufui of the negro, as the t'e ba'es of the day abundantly testify. The seizure of citizens in Slates untouched by revolt, nnd their incarceration in distant prisons, rrmo'.e from citizens who might testify in their Javor, and from friends who migl t intercede Tor them, is one ol 1 Proclamations ? No concession, noconcil the most prominent of these, and deserves j Ktion, but only sheer f'trce to compel corn all the condemnation it is receiving Aomi pkte submission 1 This policy, at ence the people. j ineulculating and impassioned, was per- I he father of his Country, tho versary ol whose birth you celebrate, had no coticcj tion of a doctrine of military necessity as a substitute for the Constitu tion and laws of the 1. nd ; nor of those undefined, unlimited powers, now assort ed to exist in the President, as Command ei -in Chief t f the army and navy cf the I "nited States, and of the militia of the Mates when called iiitoactual service, nor tun we recognize them except as baseless preien-i ins, to be put dea n with strong public disapprobation, at tho earliest pos sit le moment. Washington's Views of military jurisdiction and conduct in in time of insurrection were given ts the ar my sent by him to quell the revolt in Wes tern Pennsylvania in 17'.U, when he ad moni-bed them, "that every ollicer and soldier will constantly bear in uiind that he comes to support the laws, nr.d that it would be iieeuliai ly unbecoming in him io be in tiny way the infractor of them ; that the essential principles of a free gov ernment confine the province of the mili tary when called forth on such occasions, ip the?o two objects : first, to combat and subdue all who may be found in arms in opposition to the national will and au thority ; secondly, to aid and support the civil magistrates in bringing offender to jjstice. The dispensation of this justice belong? to the civil magistrates, and let it ever be our pride nnd our glory to leave the sacred deposit their inviolate." In the spirit of this admonition, of the constitutional doctrine that "the military shall, in all cises, and at all timci. be in strict subordination to the civil power," we must stand opposed to the abuse of the military power in applying it toother purposes than those appointed und regus lated by law ; as tho seizure of private properly of nort-combatants not legally liable to confiscation j the seizure of hordes of negroes, and their support, in struction, transportation, drill and pays uient, as allies; the suppression of news papers, or the closing of the mails against them, and the encroachment upon State jurisdiction by the appointment of sundry police ofllcials to exercise powers untie fined by, nnd unknown to the laws. What is asked is, that the military power shall settled as the times were, and fruitful of 'pretexts tor tleparture from regular and ..,.... In addition to the signal advantage ' The issue of war htm always depended as much on the determination and union of the Confederate States as, upon the mnimitude of the cllorts rut forth br us sgainst them. Manifestly, therefore, our lrue policy has been to divide them; to conciliate a part oi their population, and to dampen the ardor of the revolutionary spirit by subjecting it ti conservative op position in the very communities where it arose. The r ubjuguiion cf the South by the mere exertion of physical force against it, assuming it to really united and in earnest, is a work of extreme dilliculty, and requires an amount of wiidoin nnl vig or which our administration has failed to exhibit. In a war of invasion upon the South, most formidable natural obstacles are to be encountered, and also the pow ers of the enemy, and our strength must be, or be made tn be, adequate to over come both. In short, ullia, in the enemy's country were necessary to certain or prompt success, and to secure them all the arts of policy and the means of conciliation with, inour lower, should have teen exerted. But what has been the policy of our ru lers? Is it not written in the history of the Crittenden Compromise and of the Peace Conference ltetolves ? in Congress ional enactments and in Presidential anni-iSSted in until repeated disasters came to exhibit its folly r.nd impotejicy. Yes! the neeessity of allies, utterly scouted in the outset, became demonstrated on the plains of Manassas and in the swamps of tho Chickahominy. The course of events taught us that assistance would be useful, if not indispensable, to the great work of subduing rebellion and restoring (he in-. tegrity of the Union.

We nre in favor of servin;, our country as long as such service tends to support constitu tional liberty ; but when tho Government sinks into a m man power, (if such event should ever happen, and we are feaiful that it may be close upon us,) we will then be in favor of that one man do the fighting to support his Government. We are here to fight for a restoration of the Union, and ir the President will be good enough to us to let us finish the job before he makes another contract, we will very cheerfully give bim the tools and let him fight the irrepressible conglomerated Abs olilion humbug till he's sick of it. And if our"shoulder strap"patiiots wih to assist, they shall have the privilege grunted most willingly, with this proviso : that they pay thoir own expenses, for we would not like lobe taxed to suppo:t an army of such extravagant proclivitios. But Mows. Ed itor, while we make these resolutions to place ourselves fairly on the record, it must be borne in mind, thnt v. o do not wish to influence thereby any per1 son, let him bo of what party he may, for we hold that the Army is the servant ol the Tooplo, and instead of us compelling them by force to obey our dicta, we are subject to their direction and control. You may think the list of names to the resolutions are few for a Company. But you must remember that our Company ir small only mustering in all 45 men so you see we have an overwhelming major!, ty ; and what is still more, every private, except 3, signed them. This shows where Abolilionism is in the army. Other Com panies in tho regiment are with us iu sen timent, but not so bold in action. (for the lU'ptlilii n ) Messrs. Editors: beg we in thc.-e. few lines to give you some of my views on iho L'reat question that i- bef : tho poo pie of this war-smitten country. We have a prci.t political question to s- tllo. Tho Abolitionists all think that flat -y mubt go down, because itis the solo cause tf this righteous war; nnd the Democr.n-' throughout the country think that Aboli tionism is tho sole cause of this unholy war, and that it must go down. Now let us bo careful, and draw our conclusions fairly that we may "give unto Cie.sar tho things that are Ctrsar'a." I, for one, am opposed to the forcible abolishment of tho institutions of tho South rrotwtihsiand ing our Colonel's speech. 1 think it has a ba-l inlluence on the principles of free, goterninciitf and will havo a tendency to blast the hopes ot the liberty. loving peo plo throughout tho world. The sud intel ligence will fly to foreign lands, that in America one State must bo a slave to ano' ther, nnd liberty to enjoy their constitu tional rights is played out. Now I think the Abolition party is the sole cause of t li s hellish w,ir ; for before tho Abolitionists were, slavery was, nnd we enjoyed peace ; but ns soon as the cra zy Abolitionists came on tho stae trouble 'commenced, and now, if Abolitionism wm dead, peaco would again return to bless our unhappy land. So you can readily Foe what my views j nl' aljotlt fearing up the institutions cf the South. I think each Stato has a nerfect right to rcgulatesueh things, ami the peo ple of other States have no right to trou ble themselves about it. The whole c.mso of this war was tho constant slang, and continual meddling of the rrary beaded Abolitionists. They went into the South, nnd caused trouble among the servants of Southern men : and if 1 had been pester i , , , . . ..... ! Bllt 1,1,1 Soial1 WB3 rot ''fbt t't all times; they were too fast in plunging us into this war; they miht have -.'.lited one j ejr, ami if the present Adm'mMr.ition hud ties prlved Uieni of thoir rights, then I would have thrown my life with them. But, says ore. tho Abolitionists would have got, every thing, nnd they could havo done nothing. There appears to be moro truth than fit '. ion in this, since we kno'v what the Ab.-liti-itiists have done. Beforo (li;s war they sent thousands t- Kansas to ; est it from the South ; and sent old John Brown to Virginia (oget up an insurrec tion; nnd since that they have forcibly freed the slaves in the District of Colum bia ; and finally, to show their real design, they abolished slavery throughout the South by prot-.'-mation-a'tl verifying tho Southern expectation. 1 once ventured to say, that the party now in power, would not violate the Constitution but, 1 said what was not true. I came here to sustain our Government s it tr.it; and it r.o'v appears that the institutions of the South are more liko what we came to fight for, than the forcibly abolishing of slavery, ami paying for a lot of worthless black?. I am satisfied that the party ir. power don't want this war to close till they break up the good old Government, and make a one man power or something similar. The idea of calling us "Copperheads" is a novel one. I am willing to be mlle-l by thnt name, for the copperhead is the tin-it dangerous snake there is. vVhoti J.l'i'e Mac one of iho copperhead species (as the cowardly Blacksnukcs call him) got after the Rattlesnake he soon made the Rattlesnake "git." The South call them. selves Rattlesnake ; we are the dan serous ami deadly Cjpperhends ; nnd tho Black Republicans aro the Blacksnakes, whose character it is to get among the toad spe cies and devour them. A boy, with a switch, can chase it nil through tin men I- ow. But all hands off tho Copperhead It is not to be trilled with. "'Null' sed" about snakes. The ollicers of this regiment say thero should be no peaco poty but nil war meetings. They thus evidence that they nnt the war to Inst. I am a private, nnd want the South back without more blood shed, 1 can't see how it will bo easior to settle this trouble after killing off hun dredt ami thousands mnie of the poor privates, than now. If we were killing the leaders U might do some good. But the men that make tho trotiblo stand aloof. If I could kill such men as Horace Oreely and Jeff Davis, I would think 1 wns d-Miitr good; but to kill poor innocent privates is not according to justice and mercy. I, for ono, am in favor of bringing the States together on equal terms ; arid the plans of Gov, Seymoro nnd Ynllnndighnm are bet ter and iiafer thnn the Abolition plan of whipping them in. It would le bettor to givo them their constitutional rights, and thereby save all the lives of the innocent privates. Company V. Ih-i teg't r. V.
