-At **hat session of the Legislature I
so . act was pasaed to pu ni s h - t he mime of
treason::-. Since that time there itiSear'edy
a county in the State lulu-blob : men have
. not been charged with treasonable prac
tices. The cry of treason - and traitor has
.become. as familiar-as household words.
Persons have been branded as traitors ;
newspaper 'establishments mobbed for
_preaching treason; men imprisoned as
traitors; and yet there has' not. been a
single prosecution or trial. before a•, Conn
of justiceunder the treason law passed - hy
she het Legislature. This is a curious.
sot, and of two things—eh&
er that the charges so freely made were
absolutelyTese or that. the _authors of
theta had not t he courage totest the truth
of their allegations, beton) a ;court of jus.
rice. It is certainly surprising that_ so
heinous, an offence against the government
ihouldhe permitted,to exist, and even to
flourish, if we can credit the assertions of
a certain class of party newspapers, with
out a single attempt to bring the offenders
to inetioe. - • -
t is true that measures • of extraordi
nary vigor have been directed by the Fed
eral Governitient, and by. tumultuous as
-sem bliee of. ndividuals, commonly 'called
. mobs, -against 'au -- Posed traitors. Men • "
• km been arrested in the midst of loy al
communities, where the laws are in ilia
force and the Federal Courts ready to try
and punish crime, and incarcerated to for
tresses. Whetlier . • the atmosphere of
these gloomy precincts is peculiarly fa
vorable to the derelopeir.ent of patriot- I
ism, or not, 'Certain it is that after a time j
tome have been released upon taking the,
col4bef allegiance, no wiser as to the crime I
laid to their charge or the name of their I
accusers, than they were before undergo-j
ing this extrajudicial discipline. This
may be all right and proper. • We should
not pass upon military necessities without
some knowledge of facts.. But we sub
mit that the system is liable to abuse.—
Fe.r viample—if a citizen happens to be
--in the road of some other person who en
joys the confidence, of the Government,
and it would promote the success of some
favorite'scheme to get` him out of 'the
way for a short season. The confiden
tial agent suspects that his enemy is a
traitor—and forthwith whispers his sus
picions in the ears of some zealous Gov- I
- =meat official. The suspected party is
,quietly arrested and silently immured in
a fortress where hb - several months
in wondering what he has done. At the
end of this period he is invited to take
the'outh of allegiance, which lc does not
hesitate to do, having never harbored a
disloyil thought towards the Govern
mita. He gains his liberty, .but never
knows why he was imprisoned or who
Made the inforination leading to biz ar
rest., -In the meantime his , business may
have suffered 'irretrievable ruin—but he
has no redress. He may petition Con
gress for damages and wear out many
weary years in hanging about the lobby;
He may endeavor to discover his secret
enemy without Success.. Ile passes throu' I
life a-ruined and suspected man without
. being able to 'discover why he is suspect- . I
ea or who ruined him. This is a suppos
able case,, and illustrates the 'danger of_
departing from the well established priori
ciples of law—that every man shouted
have the opportunity of facing , his :leans=
ert of knowing the criffte charged against
him of having an impartial trial before a
court of justice, and of being convicted
before he,is subjected to punishment. _
Take another case which-is not immag
inary. • .A;newspaper publishes matter
. that certain persons imagine is tre:vena-,
ble ; but instead of rnakirlir charges against,:
. , .. ..
.the proprietor, and bringing him be.fore
- court,-these persons take the law in their
own - hands, and under cover of night, en
ter his office and destroy his materiid.--.•
The officers of law wake up, and arrest
the proprietor, without inquiring about
the - mob—and, also take possession
,cf the material remaining in his es
tablishment. He is brouga before
court on a charge of treason. The
Government prosecutor formally with ,
draws . the 'suit because he — has \no
evidence to sustain. it. The proprietor
goes forth'free aria acquitted. But just
here ' the Government steps in and in
forms him that although he is acquitted
and is not guilty of treason, yet ho cat - s•
not be permitted to use the United States
mails,to disseminate his treasonable pub-
Beath:a. • It may be possible, for a man t 9
be entirely innocent of treason, and at-the'
same time bP a traitor, but we doh't ex-,
actly understand how.
_Now we should like-to see alittle open,
manV, fair dealing.. .We—should like to
see some of the Government prisoners
tried; and if guilty punished for their
crimes. If they are traitors, the Gior
eminent owes it to itself uot,to discharge'
them upon taking the oath - - "of allegiance,
- beettu,se teen guilty of betraying tlioy,
Country would not hesitate to' eornmit,
the additional crime of perjury. If-they
are not traitors, then they should have'an
opportimity of,est'ahlishiug this fact - be
fore the United States Court. Throwing
the innocent and guilty into a common
dungeon does nots-trike us as a proceed
ing calculated to. strengthen the Govern
ment—thOugh perhaps we have rather a
traitorous leaning towards law and -jus
tice: These old prejudß , es are hard t(
overcome. Then we should like to see
• some one of the. thousands, who have
been branded as traitors in this State,
tried under-the act of last session; oth
erwise we are compelled to; infer that
these charges have been made for political
,t \
effect, regardless of truth that the au
thors are afraid to back th • words by
deeds, and submit theiaaccusattio

Fremont's us:moral was announced:
the day after the erection, and although

QUERY:-If it is " treason,"
with imprisonment,.for 'a man to say that
War would not preserve the. Union, what
crime oughtit to be for Men to proclaim
that this wir cannot-and ought not to
save the Union ? Plenty of abolitionists
are now making the tatter avowal, .and
insisting on emancipation' and.even threat.;
ening yebellion at the North. It really
looks as if Old AbtS would - yet have to run
the risk of standing by the constitution
and being sustained by the people, be
crushed by an abolition revolution, or of
heading an.- emancipation. revolution at
the North. He must choose tin- himself;
and we hope he may stand ..bY the Old

the abolitionists' of • this district in the
Senate, preaChed one of his 'sermons at
Lynn, recently. After some preliminaries,
,he declared ghat it "would be necessary if
thegoVernment vas Sustained, to pro
claim liberty to the slave wherever our
banner floats. He maintained that Gen.
Fremont in Lis proclamation had struck
the 'key note and that nothing short 'of a
plain :idoptionof the same principle by
the, Government would enable our ship
of state to ride triumphantly over the
waves of rebellion. A few more Bull, Itun.,
.Edward's Ferry affairs be thought
would •go 'very far towards advancing
I. public sentiment to the same position." .1
It will be amusing to hear, what such
fanatics wilhsay about the 'key note' after

these remedies'are iivw used and aprecia
