in lowa aSserribled. at Des Moinvi, on the
17th of July " Ffee Press;Free Speech,

.1. That the Constitution and the Un

2. That the true interests Of The coun

Now - shall we Sustain thiGaverameat?
In _the attenipt to, give an answer 10,
this question there are certain facts to be
stated preliminarily, ,the first of which is
that in the Goiernment, as it is now.con
stituted, abides the hope of the American
people. This Government, with Mr. Lin; :
coin, its constitutional President at :the
head, is the only instrument which the
American-peaple possesik, for maintainino.
American nationality, againstAlio efforts
of treason andrebellion. - There is no one
who is: bOld enough' to propose a revelit-
Therels no - one who is wild enough •
to attempt to compass the Objects of the
loyal - States through any other agency, or
by any other means,' than the presentOd=
ministration. All authoritative move
meats must originate in it,, and go forth
from it. It 'must raise the. money, sum
mon and arm the soldiersymanage our rem
lotions with. other nations, instittite and
pursue a policy adapted to secure the ends
desired, and nand responsible to the pies-.
ent and to future generations, to history
and to Gad, for the manner in which it,
discharges its momentous trust., 1
•Se.much everybody will admit, and. no
body, We presume will be so indecenti,as
to suppose that, in a crisis like the res-1
ent, this Government is under the slight
est obligation to manage its affairs in the -
interests of any political party. TheDem
_oerat and the Republican fight side by
side on the-battle-field, and, animated on
ly by patriotic impulses, do not stop
quire concerning one another's polities:—
Many of our prominent military men.,are
those who have no 'sympathy - with the-po
litical principles of Mr. Lincoln and, those ,
who elected him, but. they are - bound to!
him and to his administration by the:ties
of loyalty. Mr. Lincoln finds himself the
chief of o great nation, not more than half
•of whom sympathize with him politically,
yet all of whom must sustain hini, or )ie
must fail in the herculean task he is Call -1
ed upon to perform., He is to be4he
must be—the President of the nal ionof
the whole American people, and the
strument of their aggregated opinion and
will. He Can go no-fiister than the 100-.
piego,' because lie would run away from
the popular support. It is his policy, and'
his only safe policy, to keep the people
united, and to Ipvevents enlighten them
at the saine,timelhat they indicate to lihn.
the pathfor him ! to pursue. ;
We find ourselves now arrived at apri
sis in the rebellion, nd the question comes
" how - shall we sustain the Government?"
!.We see that we do nothing 'except thro'
the Government,, and that the Govern
' ment can pursue in°, peliey which will] l
ienate it from the popular confidence trod'
support. 'There arc two kinds of suplant-1
which-we can, give the Government—ma
terial and 'moral. Material aid is very
simple. The Government oaf's for nien,
and we must furnish them. The cause of
the Government calls for the 'sacrifice of
money, and we mast sacrifice it. We
have no. fault to find with the American
people for anylack of generosity in mate
rial supplies. When, early in the strug
gle, it wits the policy of the Government
to borrow , money, capital clubbed in har
mony to„ supply it. When half - a trillion
of men were called for, hallo' .million Of
men were calledfor, half a million of men
and more spiang to arms. Clothing; hos
pital stores. comforts have been contribu
ted to aniriimensa amount: The Govern
ment now calls ftir Men, and, capital
,springs at once to furniSh• them and fit
them out. The men, too, will 'come, and
the new, levy Will be completed at_an- ear
ly day.
The second variety of support—the
moral—is 'a matter on which we have
something special to say. The .Govern
ment has had, from the first, not onlythe
material, but the moral . support of the
loyal people-of America; bnt_Aliere have'
been from the first - Uneasy spirits who
have s not been content with .the march of
events, and the steady. progress - of the na
tionAoward the conclusion for which
they labor. These men have occupied all
positions, from that of Governor of a
State to that of Governor's scullion and
- baek.door tattler—from that.of a Senator
in Congress to that'Of his parrot penny-a
liner. Because thiegs have not been done
as. they. wished to have ( them done; be-.
cause some things have been done un
wisely; because some serious mistakes
have been made, they have nothing to say
except it be to they tune of a: howl Or. a
groats. Not one word of eneouregernent
to the anxious men around them ever Paa
seis Aheir lips. They never open their
mouths except in blame of those who are
in responsible s. positions, or in words of
sadness or bitterness._ To hear them, talk
one would suppose that the nation had al
'ready gone to ruin; that there was .no
popular confidence in' the, Government or
its generals, and that there was a settked
purpose on the part of the administration
to sell Out the co•rntrY to the rebels. -
These -men call themselves "anti-slave
ry men and th e only true anti-slavery
.wen in ' the nation. No matter how thor
oughly anti-slavery a man may. have been
• throughout his-life, if he-does not - happen
to , sympathize - -with thein now, he is a
hunker and a pro-slavery man—lf he does
not go the whole length, ond carp at Pres
ident-Lincoln and Gen. McClellan, and all
those in authority and high position whose
views do not harmonize. with theirs, then
be is accursed as a lover orslavery. /They
abuse 'the Governinent,and. speak con-,
temptuonely ofall Alipse who do not;' and
then with . chiracteristie insolerice,assume
to' be the best- friends the Government
bas, and the.only true friends of the coun
try. :Now, we ask in all candor, whether
these men are not doing more to discredit
the government with the people, to dis- :
courage enlistments, to depress t he popu
lar hope, and to' complicate our financial
affairs, than an equal number of open and
avowed traitorsbould do? There can be ,
but 'one answer to Ahis question; The
whole aim of their movenieuts is to drive
the Government, to. adopt their policy,
whether convinced of its desirableness
and.necessity,or not.—SprinOgld Repub.

• The , brief despatch published, in the
newspapers, a d il purporting to give an
secount-of thelproceedingfloof the Demo
eratio Mass Convention held at 'lndiana!),
olds mi; the 30th of July, .turns out, as We
supposed it wofild, to have been the work
of some !malicieus enemy of Democratic
principles.. Omi of our-western exchanges
brings; iis a fullireport of the proceedings •
1 of the Converitiok i . together with the
speech- delivered by Ex-Gov. AVicklille, of
Jtentudky.- He did not say, ,as represent.:
ed, that "before doing any thing more 'he
Would pause tO, see' - what .Ave were fight
ing for,"•or.that "the abolitioniks control
every department of the Government and
I were worse than the rebels." 'He did not
attempt to discourage enlistments or stay
the arm of the Government in the .work of
maintaining the Constitution ,and
frig the,Vnion.l On the contrary, he •urg
ed the most vigorous
.prosecution of the
war and said "if the . twenty millions,of
the North could not conquer the six mil

would prosecutb the war, restore the Lin
ion, and maintain the rights of 'all Under

It is a lamentable but instructive exlii
bition of Partisan violence, to witness how
greedily the Republican newspapers seize
upon this false) dispatch "as positive evi
dence of the treasonable sympathies of the*
Northern Democracy. They seen' to hail ,
with actual delight every symptom of
what they deem disloyalty at . the 'north.
News of a great Union victory - could not
have thrown them ' into greater trans..'
ports than theireport that thirty thous
and citizens of Indiana had assembled 'at
the - capitol of the State - to talk and act
treason. One Would suppose that, know
ing the general inaccuracy of telegraphic'
' dispatches, the first impulse Of the - friebtls
of a united North would'have been to di4.-
credit the ruiner that any large ptirtion of
the northern People had assembled for
the purpose of thwarting the Government
and aiding the ebellion. • But not so with
these Republic
,n newspapers._They..swal
lowed the lyin report without pairs-mg-to
ipiestion its tr uth, because they widied, it
true, in order f i t.) inicke partisan capital a—
gainst the Democrat is party. Such mis
representation is not harmless. It is.caleii
lated to promote distrust anti derision; to
encourage the' 'duds to persevere i,n ieir
war upon the Government, mil to pee
suade foreign Governments that a large,
portion of the northern people are so sick
of the war that they would hair mediation
and separation with pleasure.

That the •ti onstitution the AmeriCan .

continue to t lliw every' sacrifice to .the
end that the rhellion may be suppressed,

"In his judgment the, congress- that

Weed, says :

before it broke out, were aided -in their

of the North. This was too true, for.witlt
out. such aid. the South _could noVer `hare
