A NEW POLITICAL CREED.
"War always did und nlwnys must
abridge personal liberty."- ..V. 1. Tribune,
"Lormin proceedings are unconstitu
tlonul, when in cases of rebellion or inva
sion tho public safely reiiiros them, which
would not he conHlitutionul in tlio absence
of rebellion or invasion." President Lin
coln'! rejity to the Albany Democratic (Com
These are the doctrines that tho Repub
licans ore promulgating, startling as they
are to ail patriots, men who doHire to so
our free institutions perpetuated, uncon
taminated with the dogmas and the here
sies of the political fanatics of the day.
Most of us, consequently, have erown
up in me oenei mat our constitution was
vaiiu in notn peace and war; but it ap- remain silent ns ho would be "lure lo
pours that we were mistaken. It would : help iho enemy !" In this case Mr. Lin
now bo necessary to make one more ' coin shows the bnckwood's breeding, and
amendment to that compact, by adding 'his ignorance of tbo true principles of
the following :
"This instrument ahull bo null and void in
tiuie of wur,"
Thus we should have a Constitution
which would be satisfactory to modern
Republicans, in cuses of rebellion or other
wars, provided that party be in power at
tne time oi sucli war. it, however, me government, does any well bred man
Democratic parly should happen lo be at suppose that they would do anything but
the helm of Sdute at such a tune, the case . remain silent, unless they had beou ad
wculd he quite dilfHrent ; for, suppose that dressod by tho party in discussion? lint,
tho " war policy" ol kucli jMnoumtio Ad-, accordinu to Mr. Lincoln' doctrine, their
ministration did not liii)pcn to please the
tastes ot such men as Lincoln, Sumner,
Greely, Phillips, co., they would oppose
it, of course; and then they would be
arrested lor " implied treason," and sent
"South," or to some other bad country.
Now, 1 ask the reader if lie believes
that the men who no advance this absurd
and dangerous doctrine the abrogation
of all our civil and political rights, in
time of war- -would not denounce it in
the most vehement terms, if their lips
were to be sealed by it? We all know
they would. Now they call it treason to
oppose the policy of the President; but
they denounced President liucbanuo,
calling him everything bad that the
Englisn language is susceptible of," trai
tor," " imbecile," ought to be hung,"
&c, Ac, which then was perfectly right
and proper, and would have been the
same, iu their opinion, if we had been
embroiled in a domestic or foieign war.
How was it during the late war with
Mexico? These sumo men denounced
that war as " uncalled for," " cruel," " in
human," &.O., to the end of the catalogue
of epithets, and. the existing Administta
tion did not question their right to do so ;
nor did any sr.ne man consider that -they
were committing treason.
' Our porional liberijr always abridged la time
not be abridged. Are we lo close our lips
" '. .
Jf Mr. Lincoln can nghlly arrest Mr.
am, as be chums be can ui dor
tho lonstiiution, and immure him in
prison, or banish him to the Confederate
States, he can also arrest every man who
differs in opinion with tho Republican
party on the mere mannor of carrying on
the war, aud the measures taken to in
duce the .South to return into tho Union.
li the Administration iniulliblo, that
its war policy cannot te critioifced ? Iloes
it make no mistakes? Are it military
generals perfect in the art of war? Are
its civil officials, and the army contractors
any tiroof against corruption ? Abu! Ihe
reply sickens tho hearts of tha true lovers
of iho' Union.'
It is true, that where hostilities exist
where the exigencies of the case require
sudden and prompt measures for defense,
attack, or for the public safety, martial
lu may properly exist ; but there is no
instance in the history of civilied nations,
except in free America, where the mere
wills of military generals have been the
law, in status mid Provinces loyal to the
Government, and wholly undisturbed by
the existing war.
Martial such as General liurnsida
has inaugurated, is no law nt all. It is
simply ihe ijisc dull of a despot. "Mr.
VulUndigltam'B sentiments oliend uie.
Take u hie of soldiers and arrest him "
" I don't like the tone ol the Chicago Times
the Timet is hereby suppressed." " This
man is opposed to tho mancipation pol
icy of the ijovernmenl soldiers, off with
him to prison." "That man criticies

This, reader, is but a joor specimen of
the acts of tyranny that would exist at
our doors, if the President's doctrine, at
ihu head or this article, were fully car
ried out. He contends that ho has the
right to arrest citizens who have violated
no law, "not so much" says Re, "for what division of the Democratic pry, in the.e, od in increa.ing tijo circuiatiui medium

This is a remarkable age of " progress,"

the f resident the right to arrest, impnon,

New, if two gentlemen were engaged in
"discussing the peril of tho government,"
j and an unmannerly bystander should in

I they would serve him right to show him

silence would be conclusive evidence that
they were traitors at heart, unci would
" help tho enemy !"
Again, we tire neither to be allowed to
express our opinions on the acts of tho
Administration, nor to "say nothing;"
tho consequence is, that the democrats
and conservative whigs must hurrah for
Lincoln and his "nigger war policy."

A Man Receives Fifty
on the Bare Hack
From tlio Iho Pittsburgh Clironiulo (a UcpubU
f enn paper) of August 4th.

Marshal s olhce, on l mirth street. From
nil we can learn concerning the matter, it
would appear that Jlagen enlisted some
time ago in the Sixty-third regiment, and
deserted. A few days since, it' is alleged,
ho offered himself as a substitute for a
citizen of the First Ward, who was draft
ed, ana inter receiving liis unil'mu wus
sworn in ana sent to camp, lie remained
but a fchort time in cump, and nothing
more was heard of him until ypslerday,
when, as is alleged, he presented himself
at tho Provost Marshal's Ullice as a substi
tute for a man who had just paid him ?2')0.
This is tho statement of the clerks in the
ollico themselves, but whether it is correct
or not wo cannot say. .lagen had passed
examination and was about boiug sworn
in the Bocond time, when he wis recogniz
ed, whereupon orders were given to take
hiin up stairs and give him jiffy l:-hcx as
punishment for his attempt to impose up
on the Hoard. Our informant does not
state precisely from whom this order em
anated, but as Capt. Foster was present,
and either gavo it himself or heatd it giv
en, ho, of course, rnuu be held responsi
ble. iiagen was now seized by the guard r.ml
taken to tho rendezvous in the third story,
where preparations were Pt once made for
currying the order into effect. The man,
as we are informed, was stripped naked,
gagged and handcuffed. A raw cowhide
was produced, and a soldier named ( toorge
Palmer, corporal of the guard, under di
rections of Deputy Provost Marshal Mc-
1 Ifenrv, who was present, immediately
! proceeded to lay on the stripes. Hagen,
I comparatively powerless, though he was,
resisted, and Mcllenry, as is alleged, ad
led on the soldiers present to hold him
whilo the stripes were being laid on.
This the latter refused to do, whereupon,
as ihe report goes, Mcllenry himself seiz
ed the wretched man, and held him until
the entire fifty lasher woro administered.
Hagen struggled violently in his agony,
but before tho sentence was halt carried
out he fell prostrate on the floor, and
whilo in this condition the balance of the
lashes were administered him. His con
dition when taken up was pitiable in the
extreme. His back was liken viere of
raw beef, the cow-hide having cut through
tho skin, and ho was so exhausted that he
could not support himself. A gentleman
who saw him to-diy, whilo tho doctor was
dressing hi-; .vounds, states lhat he must
havo received a mint shocking flog
ging, and that had he not been a man of
strong constitution he would have died
under the infliction.
We do not, of couree, justify, or pretend
to justify llagen's conduct. 1I is no
doubt a scoundrel, and it may be deserved
all he got ; but the Trovost Marshal had
no right whatever to take tho matter in
Iris own bands and order the man to be
(logged after tho manner he was. The
matter is talked out of doors to-day, and
and Boine anxiety is expressed to learn
what steps, if arty, the Secretary of Wnr
will lake when ho bears of the affair. Of
course great latitude will be allowed Gen.
Moorehead's appointee, but if an outrage
so wanton Bnd tyrannical as th:s is over
looked, there is no telling where the
thing may stop, or what may como of it.
