Thursday Morning, March 19, 1863.
We publish on the first page of to-day's
paper the speeches of JAMES T. BRATA and
JOHN YANBUREN, delivered at a Great Union
Meeting held at the Cooper Institute, in New
York, on Friday evening, the 6th inst., which
was participated in by men of all parties, ex
cept the Copperheads.
Meu who have heretofore been in full com
munion with the Democratic party, headed by
HORATIO SEYMOUR, came out boldly in favor
of Mr. LINCOLN, and justified most fully and
unqualifiedly all his measures for suppressing
this rebellion.
Most prominent among the speakers was
J. T. BRADY, who has heretofore been one of
the strongest supporters of the New Aork
Democracy. Mr. BRADY took a proud posi
tion before the American people and announc
ed himself in favor of war to the knife, until
peace is restored. Speaking of the Confede
rates he said :
" They have told us that if wo g&vo them
a blauk paper and a pencil to write the terms
of a new compact they would not agree to it.'
Therefore it is a war declared for all ultimate
results that can come: and I spit upon any
Northern man who t >tcs any position except
for the maintenance of the Government."
In speaking of the separation of these States,
which he declared to be impossible, he said :
" And now, gentle-men, in conclusion, I pro
pose to answer the question, 1 Y\ hat will come
out cf this war V You say you will never
consent to be united with ns. "We say that
we will never agree to the existence cf two mili
tary governments arising out of the same people
on the same territory." * * *
" Now, I tell mv Southern bretheren that
their only chance is to let the Constitution be
their guide ; for if the Yankees get down in
to that Southern territory, who Imve a theory
about this war, and put arms into (he hands of
the negroes, and put their long feet on the ta
bles of the estates of which they take posses
sion, I don't want to be the lawyer iu uu ac
tion of ejectment."
Mr. BRA DY'S speech was an able one, and lie
was c'ucetcd enthusiastically from the begin
ning to the end of his oration.
Mr. BRADY is an Irishman, and a Roman
Catholic, and he is the mouthpiece of a large
portion of his countrymen ia the city of New-
JOHN VAN BCKEN spoke in the RAM? strain
for mere than hour. Duricg Lis remarks Le
said :
" I nrn for a vigorous prosecution of the
war. lam for a prosecution of the war until
this rebellion is wholley overthrown. I atn
for destroying this usurped government that
has been set over several States of this Un
ion, known as the Confederate government ;
nnd until that is done, I hold all propositions
for peace to be entirely preposterous and ab
surd. [Applause and cries of good !] Now,
being for the war, I a:n necessaiily with eve
rybody that is for the war; and being oppos
ed to peace, I am necessarily opposed to ev
erybody that is for peace."
DAVID DUDLEY FIELD, another prominent
Democrat, made n most able and patriotic
Let the Copperheads, who are talking
about tho Ruinous d'bt ! enormous Tar, and
a bankrupt nation, ponder this statement well,
for it is true, nnd the question of the expens
es of this war is squarely met in a few
Our taxes never need be higher than they
are at present, and we have stood them one
year—they have Dot hurt us yet —wc can
Etand them another, and forever ; with fifty
per cent, added, if need be ; and still remain
the richest, the happiest, and most prosper
ous people upon the face of the earth.
The Uniou meeting at the Cooper Insti
tute is but the begiuning of what is soon to
follow. The people are getting tired of car
rying on the war by slow approaches and easy
marches, and they are about to give their unit
ed support to the administration, and they are
about tc tgivc heir united support to the ad
ministration, and then the traitor sympathiz
ers will have to stand from under. A curse
like that of Cain will he pronounced upon
them by an outraged people, and they will be
cousiued to obscurity and detestation.
USV-A brief dispatch from Yieksburg annonn
ccs that the Yazoo Pass Expedition has cap
tured twenty six steamers, and that tne gun
boats which formed part of it have arrived at
Haine's Bluff and were shortly to begin the
attack. Asa consequence, probably, of the
unexpected success of this expedition, the evac
nation of Yieksburg is again reported, and this
time with addition that the greater part of the
Rebel force is to go to Chattanooga thence to
operate against the Army of tho Cumberland
under Gen. Ilosecrans On the other hand,
\va have a report that both Union and Rebel
armies are to adjourn the contest to Port Ilud
son; but as the fortifications at that point are
understood to be weakest on the north, it is
not easy to see why the Rebels should aban
don Yieksburg only to retire upon a less defen
sible position. It is, however, reported from
Washington that Port Hudson is also to be
abandoned, and this seems the more probabie
iu tho case of the evacuation of Yieksburg.
The Like Providence operations are said
to have inundated a hundred miles of Louis
iana, destroying mil'ioos of property, and
drownidg out tho guerrilla rats which infested
it. The Yieksburg cut-off seems also to have
been prematurely filbd by the impatient wa
ters of the Mississippi ;and their remains, there
fore, only the Yazoo Pass Expeditiot as the
basis of immediate success. Fortunatly we
have nothing but good news from that quar
ter. though act yet so eomplete as might be
Our exchanges come to us filled with glow
ing accounts of mass meetings of the people
of the loyal States of the Uuiou. C-opper
hondism has raised up a feeling of indignation
that will not be put down until secessionists
South, and sympathizers North, will all be
crushed in one common ruin. On Wednes
day evening of last week, an immense mass
meeting, to inaugurate the National Union
Club, took piace at the Musical Fund Hall,
Philadelphia. Gov. CURTIN presided and
made the opening speech. Speeches were de
livered by Gov. JOHNSON, of rennessee, Sena
tor DOOI.ITTLE, cf W isccnstn, BENJAMIN 11.
these speakers were earnest in their remarks,
and their condemnation of the miserable
Copperheads, who, like Sanderson, Swarr and
others, are attempting to break down the
Government, was greeted with the wildest
shouts of applause.
On Thursday evening Gov. Wr.iGirf and
Hon. H. B. WRIGHT were serenaded at the
Continental Hotel, and in response to re
peated calls addressed the thousands assem
bled. In the course of bis remarks Gov.
WEIGHT said :
The assertion has been made that none but
the Democratic party could save the country.
He thought so too, but lie proposed to u.-k
the question, what class of Democrats do you
mean are to save toe country? \Y e have got.
a past history. Let us yo back ami look at
it. There has been a Democratic party in this
country, but. the men composing thai party
were found in harmony with the Constitution.
But even then there were some of a false De
mocraey. Thomas Jefferson was a genuine
Democrat, [applause J llxi had a Vice
President of the name of Aaron Burr. Mr.
Burr was inside cf the Democratic organiza
tion. [Laughter] Were they not both
Democrats. Coining from Jefferson to Jack
son we find tiiiit Andrew Jackson had ;i
Vice President by the name of John C Cal
houn. Was not Calhoun inside of the Demo
cratic organization as much as General Jack
son himeif. Coming from Jackson we find
Stephen A. Doualas; and was not lie a r. pre
sentativc of the old Jefferson Democracy? At
that time the country had a Vice President in
the person of John C. Breckinridge, who was
tlieu a Democrat too Then we have .TtfiVr
son and Burr. Jackson and Calhoun, and
Douglas and Breckinridge ail inside of the
Democratic ring. [Laughter ] Do you f.d
low Jefferson, Jackson and Douglas, or Burr,
Calhoun and Breckinridge ? Do you follow
these lost ? (Cries of " no, no. ') The coun
try stood by President Polk when he had his
trouble, and now we want the whole people
of this country to stand up for the war. If
you are a genuine Democrat that is what you
should do. When you hear a man saying
that the only party that ran save the country
is the Democratic party, be sure and ascertain
what he means oy the Democracy, whether it
is genuine or bogus. There can be no such
thing as a true Democrat, who does rot otai.d
up for the war (Long applause )
lieu. H. B. WRIGHT was equally pointed in
his remarks. He affirmed :
I am here a Democrat, but a Douglas Dem
ocrat. [Applause.J 1 have been a Demo
crat for i> quarter of a century. I shali con
tinue one as long as I live. 1 love my conn
try, its Constitution and its Laws, and if need
be he will fight to preserve them ail. Not a
sympathizer with, nor apologist for treason.
I am the enemy of the traitor, and the dead
ly foe of the man wiio takes up arms against
the country. [Loud applause.]
lam a peace man man. No one living is
more anxious for peace. Dot it must be
peace under one Union and Flig the
flag of the Union! [Applause] Liberties
like ours are not to re relinquished or surren
dered. lam one of those who believe that
patriotism ignores and is above aii party, and
that it is the duly of every man to come ;for
ward with l>is last do.lar and Ids personal ser
vice to put down tiD, the most heinous nnd
unnatural rebellion upon which the light has
ever shone. [Cries nf " That's so."
Our ancestors seuied in their life bloorl this
American Union, yet men are among us who
doubt the posihility of its preservation, and
are welcoming the guillotine to their own neck.
The rebel press tell us that if the whole Yan
kee nation submitted to their yoke,they would
spurn them. On no condition will they reunite
with us. Who can ciy for peace in the face
of declaration like these. The rebels never
yet intimated a desire to reunite the govern
ment. They are today precisely what they
were when tbev fired into the national emblem
upon Fort Sumpter. If peace cannot lie ob
tained upon honorable terms, what is left t j
us but 10 fUdit for peace ? Peace to the
country would be a welcome boon,but, untii the
pride and contumacy of the leaders are broken
all hope oi it must prove delusive. The bit
terest enemies of the Union are tliowho
would accept peace upon the broken fragments
ol this great republic. [Applause] They
arc direr enemies to the government than those
who take up opon arms against it. [Cried of
" so they are."]
The war is no work of oars. We c1il not.
make it. Its calamities are not oar doing.—
The blood of our sons and brothers is not up
on our heads. Their bones that bestrew eve
ry battle held from the Potomac to the Rocky
mountains are not scattered by our hands.—
The spirit of secession is not appeased by
them. Upon every battle field the graves
of Democrat and Republican he side by fide
their bones mingle in the burial trenches.
[Applause ] If ever there was an hour when
loyal men should stand together irrespective
of party politics it is now. The memory or
the man who tt b his icu-.tiy in her i'our ol
trial and dangers is ac.ursecl. The fate of
Arnold shall be his fate, out! his heritage the
execration of unborn millions. [Deafeuiag
applause ]
This is the time when loyal men shoul i
mould public opinion. You are the people
do it. Spurn the traitor from your home. Let
him see the contempt you feel for him patent up
oiif/ourbrow. [Cheers.] 1 have differed wide
ly from the Administration on several points,
butai te everything necessary to put dow
treason I give it my unqualified support. —
[Applause.] The man who is a traitor or
tiie sympathiser with rebellion cannot be my
friend. Let every loyal man thus scout them
and will hide their diminished heads.
CSV" Which travels at the grcate-t speed,
heat or cold ?—Heat; because you can easily
catch ccld
The hatred for loyal Democrats was exhib
ited : n its fullness, by the venomous copper
heads in the House of Representatives, on
Friday of last week. That noble son of
Tennessee, ANDREW JOHNSON, a life ions Dem
ocrat, who has suffered severely for his loy
alty, whose property has been confiscate 1 and
stolen by the rebels, and whose wife has been
scorgcd because of her husband's loyalty, by
the womcn-wUppers of the"chivulrons" South,
and who still stand firm for the Union, was
on a vi.-it to Hurt isbnrg. He was accom
panied by that sterling old Democrat, ex-Gov
ernor WRIGHT of Indiana, whose democracy
was never questioned and whose loyalty Was
of the Jacksoriian stamp. Mr. A ineent o!
Erie, offered a resolution to tender them the
Hull for the purpose of addressing their Dl
low-citizens, and moved a suspension of the
rules that the,resolution might be put upon isl
Mr. Beck objected to the suspension of the
roles, and, on a call for the yeas and nays,

The intelligenc from our forces operating
on tno Mississippi is important, though not so
definite as wo could desire. A dispatch from
Cairo brings us advices Memphis to
Thursday evrnirp A movement of troops was
taking place below, from which important
results were expected immediately. It was
believed that A'icksbnrg mast soon capitu
late or suffer a worse fate. The Yazio Pass
operations appear to have given n? son e great
advantage, of which we huve as yet hardly
more than a hint. One dispatch states that
Admiral Po: tor has reeeivul information that
the Expedition had captured Yazoo City, and
destroyed the rebel fi-ct known to tie there
Another dispatch states that the AiTbiiml
was momentarily expecting intelligence from
Haines' Bind' that onr forces had arrived, then
from above—which would be the signal fot
a combined attack upon then be! fortifications
there. Meantime an oOiciui dispatch from an
other source lend - a new aspect to a flairs on
the Mississippi. Gen. 1\ isencrans has tele
graphed to the War D.p-irtment a report
which lias reached h in, to the i fifed tliat the
rebels have evacuated Viek-bu'g lu r urm i
ti- n had previously reached Washington that
they were removing their stores and war m.v
tcrial into the interior, and the report of the
evacuation is quite likely to be t:ue.
A positive confirmation of the destruction
of the Indiatiola liy the rebels has been sent
t > the Navy Department by Admiral Porter.
The destruction was in consequence of the
fright occasioned by the " turn-ted monster"
sent down by the Vicksburg batteries, and a
full account of tho aPTiir is contained in the
Vicksburg IVkig of the 5• !i inst.
A dispatch from Cairo brings a report that
a force of 12.0D0 rebels is approaching Fort
Donelson—being already within twenty-eight
miles of that tort. Our forces there ate ready
for ihem.
Our advices from the army under General
Itoseucnius are of the most gratifying charac
ter. The men and < Hirers ore in high s| iriis, lent ar.d cheerful well clothed, wcll-ftd
and well armed.
Washington vras perturbed on Sunday by a
rumor that a considerable force of rebels had
crossed the Rappahannock at United Stares
Ford, and were making a raid against the
right wing of Gen. Hooker's Army, with a
view to forcing an engagement. The rumor
was without any fodndation in fact.
The Washington Ripublic-rn reiterates the
statement made by it a few days ago, that the
rebtds arc in cousderable force in the Shanati
doali Valley, between New-Maiket and Staun
ton, and contemplating another raid on the
Baltimore ant! Ohio Railroad.
We received, on Saturday, advices from
Port lloyal to the tenth inst., by an arrival
at this port. Gen. Hunter's great movement
bad not yet commenced, but a General Order
had been issued by him on the s'b, in which
he says that after long and wearying delays,
due to canoes over which no one in the De
partment had control, his command has at
length the cheering prospect of active and
very important service. On the same dav
Gen. Hunter issued an order relieving Tsriir
Gen. Nnglee from duty, and ordering him to
New Yoik, to report to the Adjutant Gcner
a!. Another order, issu d on the Gtli, directs
the drafting of all the able bodied negroes in
the Department, between the ages of US and
50, not otherwise employed by the Govern
meet, to ganUon the virions forts and posts,
and thus relieve the white soldiers for active

DEAR SIR :—I consider the mission which
you are so deeply interested in, the highest
end holy mission which our citizens could en-
gage in. Tiicfe is nothing which somucb pleas
es the soldier or more encouraging to him
than to know that he is not forgotten at home,
and that everything is being done to render
him comfortable when sick or wounded. The
necesity for thus liberally and patriotically do
nating for the relief cf our soldiers is as great
to day as at any previous time By your lib
eral and patriotic donations you have saved
hundreds of precious lives, and you have great
ly relieved the pains and sufferings of thous
ands of sick and dying soldiers by your be
nevolent aid and nevtrtiring efforts. The
field of operation is still large and the suffer
ings of cur soldiers are great, but I huve so
much confidence in tie patrioti-m of our peo
pie that I lie icve they will leave nothing tin
done which they can do to relieve the suffer
ings in our army. I k<ve. seen the time while
on the. peninsula. that the rainless rag lag r f
any family would have saved precious lives

want of a rag or bandage with which to clccss

have always tu-en very scarce with ti.e army

you see and know the vu t auiuunt of good
which you have done. There you find the
dead and feur of every soldier in the army,
(the hospital or house of death) you li tl no
clean or wholsome cuts, to change - f gar

>o welcome and necessary in a hospital. You
find patients infilling from ail kinds of il is

tlis.t use some who have lain in the hospital
for mouths without having even a change of
