While out on a foraging exppdition

him to a' tree, after which a stallart
'negro was ordered to give him a-flog

From the New York llereld, Tune 10
Mr. Lincoln is new fairly, presen
ted, to the country for its decision. Ile
stands as the nominee of the Balti
more Convention, on the platform of
that, Convention, and commended to
the people by the windy harangues
of the Convention's very empty ora
tors. But neither the ten times falsi
fied platform of the Convention nor
the speeches, of its members are what
the people have to reflect, upon in re
gard. to this nomination. What they
have to notice are the three terrible
years that the country has already
gone throucrh under the Presidency
of gr. "Lincoln--three years of war,
,in which the country- has endured ev
ery misery 'that the President's in
capacity, in 'n'inditary, naval and'fi
nanciarpciint Of vie*, could plunge it
into. This is what the people'have
to - corrsider; and what they have to
dectileis simply whether or not they
wish to 'repeat those years.
Mr. Lincoln is responsitle for every
blunder . oqt:emitted in every depart
ment of the go , kernment since the
commencethent of the' war. ne as
sumed the absolute control of'our ar
mies, with a flourish of defiance to the
enemy and a Chinese announcement
that our armies should move on a cer
tain day. Under his direct guidance
we experienced a series of reverses
without parallel. Our grandly or

vras merely a daily gdecessicin of fright
ful reverses to our''arrns. Ile con
ducted from Washington Burnside's
dreadful Fredericksburg slaughter,
and he is eqnally'responsible for the
butchery at Chancellorsville. Our
great victories at Gettysburg and
Antietam and Grant's victories in the
West were won in spite of his policy.
By keeping such a man
.as Welles at
the bead olthe Navy DePartment he
has become responsible_ for the blun
ders that have well nigli'made our
heroic navy contemptible, and has a
fellowship in the incapacity that has
driven our commerce from the seas.
Every lutelli„vent person in the coun
try can see that if Mr. Lincoln had
been a man'of any. ability , be could
have ended the war by the..cortyplete
destruction of thurebel arnuies:ei'gh•
teen months ago. 'But., in his inca
pacity, he has noVonly failettovut the

this' City, under,the "Charge of Capt.

,a guard of forty. men be

On :Wednesday they were placed.,op
board the steamer MaYor Reybold, at
Arch street wharf. As the. Veasel
was leaving the dock she caine col
lision with the steamer Edwin Forreet,
which created a confusion on board
the Reybold, during which four of
the prisoners escaped. The remain
der were taken to Fort Delaware.
These men were formerly in the Uni
on army, and deserteg during the
late battles. They joined together,
and, it is supposed, attacked the am
bulances containing our wounded
soldiers. it is said that these
men murdered_wounded soldiers, who
were found-with their throats cut.
They were.tried by a court martial,
some of them sentenced to be hung,
otkers t - o helshot, and the remainder
to a tong imprisonment. Three or
four of these rascals belonged to
Pennsylvania regiments, a number to
New York regiments, and the rest
were divided among 'regiments from
tither NorthernrStates.

speech a few days ago, denouncing
the present administration, declaring
that - it had so conducted the war that
