Our Captain too, was very weak, and had
been so during the whole march, but Mill
he crawled along. Rut there is no use to
name individuals, for we all suffered
much and fel to diy as though we were
"plsyed out soldiers." Hut what makes
this thing look worse is the fact that there

"It u not the black blood which must be instilled

be inused into the blacks." Uow the
one may be done and the other prevented,
is a rr alter of physiological research, of
which Mr. Tilton alone seems to possess
the secret. If he intends to effect this by
intermarriages, then it Is clear that he
does not consider the happiness of the

Vallandigham Meeting in New York.
The New York papers of yesterday con
tain long accounts of a public meeting
hem at union 6quare, in that city, ou
Monday evening, to sympathize with Mr.
Vallandtgham, and to "denounce his re
cent arrett, trial and iinQfjsonuient." The
papers differ very widely in thir estimate
of the nuoibei of persona present. The
Herald says it was among the largest pubs
lio meetings held in the city during the
war; the World claims that the attend
ance in'mbered 25,000, while the Tribune
says 5.000, and the Timet only 3,000. The
New York Sun says :
The meeting was largo, probably six or
eight thousand persons in all, and a maj
ority of those constituting it seemed to be
enrappert with the most ultra sentiments
of the speakers, in their denunciations of
l'reEidont Lincoln and of Judge Letivilt,
who refused the writ of habeas corpus to
Mr. Vallandigham. The meeting had ihe
usual accompaniments of pnblio assem
blages, music, police and calcium lights,
and there was not as much expressed
sympathy for secession as perhaps some
persons anticipated. All the speakers
condemned the mode of conducting the
war all wished the Uinon restored, aud
most of them held that the South would
come back readily if men in power were

Got. Seymour's Letter to the Vallan-I
Alpant, May 17. The following is the
letter of Governor Seymour to the Val-
landigham meeting last night
ExKctTivi DiraaTMKNT, May 16.
I cannot attend the meeting at the Cap1
itol this evening, but I wish to slate my
opinion In regard to the arrest of Mr. Val
landigham. It is an act which has brought
dishonor upon our country. It la full of
danger to our persons and our hnmes. It
bears upon its front a conscious violation
of law and justice- Acting upon the evi.
donee of detailed informers, shrinking
from the light of day, in the darkness of
uiht, armod men violated the house of an
American citizen and furtively bore him
away to militaty trial, conducted without
those safeguards known to the proceed
ings of our judicial tribunals. The trans
action involved a series of offences against
our most sacred rights. Ii interfered
with the freedom of speech ; it molested
our rights to be secure ii our homes
against unreasonable searches and seiz
ures; it pronounced sentences without
trial, save one which was a rcockery.which
insulted as wel! as wronged. The perpo
tralors now seek to impose punishment,
not for an otlence against law, but for the
disregard of an invalid order, put forth in
the utter disregard of the j rinciples of
civil liberty, if this proceeding is appro
ved by the Government, aud sustained by
the people, it is not merely a step toward
revolution--it ia revolutiou; it will not
only lead ti military despotism it estabs
libhes niilitury '.lapotism. In this aspect
it must be accepted, or in this aspect re
jected. If it it, upheld, our liberties are
overthrown, (he safety of our persoris,se
curity of cur property, will hereafter des
pend upon the arbitrary will of such mili
tary rulers as may be placed over us, while
Our constitutional guarantees will be bro
ken i"?nwii. Even no. the Governors und
Couit? of some of the Western Slates have
funk into insignificance before the des
potic powei claimed and exercised by
military men who have been sent into
their borders. It is a fearful thing to ins
cranio the danger aliich now overhangs
ua by treating the law, the judiciary, and
the Sta'e authorities wilh contempt. Tb.
people of this country now wait with the
deepest anxiety the decision of the Ad
ministration upon these acts. Having
given it a generous support in the conduct
of the war, we pause lo see tsh.il kind of
Government It is for which we are asked
to pour out our blood and our treasures.
The action of the Administration will des
lermhie in tin minds of ruoro than ones
half uf ti e people of the loyal States
whether this war is waged to put duivn
rebellion at the South or destroy the free
institution at th North. We look for
its deci-ioii with most solemn solicitude
