- Ark. ALcildireies' 13,
I am almost afraid to write dr .oen to
think—l dredd to lookat the Inture. - The
events which have occurred during the
-past two years make me despair i of the per
petuity ofour country. The rapidity with
which one misfortune after, another has
been.toresented to our minds itt o appalling.
Am ,I mistaken in -- my apprehensions
Are we to survive our disasters? Will
the Republic be able tOtonquer all its en
emies? Can thq_Constitution be preserv
ed and. the Union.restored? The rebel
lion is now a stern, indubitablelfaeti: Can
iche aunt -eased ? Thinking Men cannot
answer or are afraid to hazard tin opinion.
Now, is it not a duty. that each citizen
owes to his country to render S'uckassist
ance as he' MD, so as to utterly crush out.
this fon( rebellion? I proposOo ley my
views before. the public, leaving it to
judge of their' worth or worthlessness, as
the ease may be.'
The first thing to be accomplished is to
put :ail enif to the rebellion. Will this ev
et be 'done it' the war is to be conducted
in the future as it has been in the past?.
The NO - rill-is said to be three tunes as
strong as Oa South, in nnine‘ 4 , and men,
then whybas not the former beaten the
latter?. .We had better look at this:mat- .
;.ter squarely in the face: The season why
is plain and self-evident. Itjis because
i there vino statesman in \ the Cabinet. It
is because neither the President nor Con
gress understands the magnitude of the
rebellion ) nor the importance df the issue.
1 believe:the President is honest, and that
I f lies means well, and- that he desires the
restoration of the Union ;- but 4t.the same
!time, am constrained to state- that he
lacks the mental capacity to grasp the cri
sis in its
. length and breadth.,; Now, - the
President, the Cabinet and Congress have
not as yet arisen - to a kno'wledge of our
national dangers; 'or if they; have, and
have:not put an end to the war; we ought
Ito be informed of their reasonti: am titin
to believe. that they 'desire the suppres-.
sion of the insurrection, the restoration of
iwthe Union; and the re-establishment •of
Constitutional law. I "can only believe
that it is the- Abolition extremists who de-.
sire war and carnage. It is' these latter
who try to unsettle what the fifty-six
signers had settled, and what ithe framers
' of the Constitution had - settled; and what
God Almighty, hi His infinite wisdom
and inserutable•decrees, had settled from
the beginning . ot' -time, that negroes can
never become the equals of White. men. I
say, therefore, that if our - national rulers
understood the nature of the ',struggle as
statesmen ought tomielerstand it, the war
would have been ended months a! , ..0. •
The rebellion was thought to have.licen
"a tempest in a tea-pot," - ‘ P. - whiskey in
surrection," or " Shay's rebellion." . This
opinion, entertained by our Washington
politicians, shows the shallowness.of their
statesmanship, and unfits them for their
positions. If they had viewed it with the
'ken of statesmen, it could neVer have at
tained its present vast proportions; it
would never have been temporized with.
The people were ready to give all the
men and all the money that the adminis-.
tration demanded, but neither the rebel--
lion nor the national spirit wastuderstood,
hence the shilly-shally, wavering spirit in
which the-war has been coodneted. Why
is it that mere politicians-;have been ena
bled to get prominent, commands in the
army, while competent' olticers have been
thrust into the back ground ?: Why have
we been beaten at Big . Bethel, Manassas,
Ball's Bluff; -Shiloh, Charleston, and" back
from If ichinond ?--WhY had Banks to rim
before Jackson ? We are told because his
troops had to be sent to-reinforce McClel
lan, but why had the administration not
prepared- troops sufficient for McClellan
withou't those of Banks? The people are
asking these questions in every direction.
It is admitted on all • sides that there is
a strong Union sentiment in the Border
Slave;States. This feeling can, by states
men, be increased - rapidly- or it can be en
tirely destroyed by the abolition extrem
ists. Nothing could have. 'been m,ore-of
fensive than the proclamations of Fre
mont and limiter to a large and influen
tial party in those State.s. Fremont was
removed from his command; not because
of his proclamation, but because of his
quarrel with the. Blairs; bo, not even on
account of the wholesale peculatiohs of
the officials under add aroimd him. hlc is
Again restored to a command .where he
manifest-his utter incapacity, nsa General :
but because• another
.General is ! placed
over him, he throws. up his 'commission in
disgust, and tims•deprires the public. of.
his very valuable Jerviers. Hunter is still . ;
retained in his conaMand, notwithstandin g
his prticlainationand slaVery has been
abolished-in, the District of Columbia. All
these -thin gs havetended increasethe
disimien sentiment in the south and bor
der slave states..
' Have Butler, and Burnside, and Pope
troops enough? 'When tome patriots in
the Senate and liouse.of Representatives I
asked that more troops should be given to I
qur-Generals, the mouth-pieces of.the Ad
ministration told them that there; were
more than enough under arms. Did these
miserable politicians, wish the defeat of .
McClellan'? Were. they jealous of his i
genius, of his.honesty, of his capacity ? 1
He lironght order out of chaos;
.he made
an•ariny out of a mob: : • The Aaministra. I
tioti ()fight to know that the terrible or
of :war is no child's play; but that,
on -the contrary; it is a fearful; frightful
business ;: that every day brings agony to

the !scuiri abeiling rot, the worsCel-
ernents are thrown upon the-top... The tor
rupt politician" smells his prey afar:otkas
surely as . the'erow and the vulture spent
the carrion:
We in the. free States are divided into
.tu'o.opposing`political parties, thettemo
cratic and its opponents. After the bloody
fiat went forth that the flag of rebellion
should be unfurled,. and that treaion
should :be made triumphant, the whole
North arose in it* might And grandeur, to
defend the Pnion and the Constitution.—
Political partizanship:Was sunk into pat
riotism. It was no longer a*.qtiestitan o
Black Republicanism or, Douglas Democ
racy, or Breckinridgeism4 all were swal
lowed tip
,in hive of 'country. Butler,' of
Massachusetts; Sprague, of • Rhode Is ,
land f Patterson, of Pennsylvania;! sup,
portersofßreckinridge, threw.themselves
into the front ranks. McClellan,- Meagh
er, Logan, were found hi, the field. along
side of those, who had voted for Lincoln.
The people - on all aides, of every politi
cal party, laid aside. their proclivities, to
support the Administration to carry on
the war. Alas! bow has this rgenerona
and noble confidence been ,disappointed.
1 know that the great mass of the Delime
ravy threw themselves tato the movement
with the Rurest motives and best inten
tions. I and - the Douglas men used all our
influence to encourage this, enthusiasm.—
We believed in the wisdom and patriot
ism:of that distinguished statesman. ' ; We
were for him in earnest; we hate not ap
pealed to his mouldering ashes ;o make
money out of them. We did net sell our-
selves to the ,black republicans for office.
Amidst these latter. days of corruption,
tergiversation and renegadism, we have
held to our. Democratic faith and honor,
and we can well •affoid to : welcome back
to the Democratic fold thOse Breckin ridge
! Democrats, who thistakingly went wor
shippingfor a time after strange political.
Gods. . .
It has become flishionable to denoiince
pus as_ dirunionists,and traitors, unless we
follow in the wake of those who have de
; sertea the principles of Stephen A.-Doug,-
I las, mid swear by the black republican !It
rpm!. Well, I hold that we are better and
more loyal
_citizens than they. We are
truly and sincerely for the Union and the
I Constitution, and for' 'the ,prosecution of
the war, although we neither .hold office
I, nor make money out of Gavernment.cOn,
1 tracts. We are asked timeandilgain, are
we willing to support the administration?
Our answer ,is McClellan, Meagher,
' Shields, Butler, Sprague, Patterson,.Lo
l.gan, M'Clernand, are periling their lives,
while the army is filled froM both Wings'
iof the Democracy. Where or' when has
I this party halted in; its support. of the Ad=
ministration ? -Never, never. Has a sin
. gle Democrat in the fi4e Stateever' used
the language of a proininents,RepubliCan,
formerly a member of 'Congress, , -now a
General - in the army? who.said, "Let the
Union slide?"
But it is not enough that we are
Ists and Constitutionalists, se must even
! think as the black republicans tell as. We
say that you cannot dragoon us into
thinking as'you' do. . . ,
If WC say - that W* reeking
with the stench of pofiticarcorruptiou, we
.1 are denounced as disfmionists.
.If we pronounce- against the infamous
practice of conferring responsible com
mands, irrespective of military education,
upon mere politiciang, we, arc disunion
