Faxs.ow 'Cain:ars: When I left the
State, di months ago, I had good reason
to believe that before. this time
would have returned to the people or firs!
epuri.. The •queition of peace was then,
and is now in their hands. I thought they
hid seen enough of-war. I.suppased that
its bloody cruelties had antheiently_shock
ed the humanity of good risen, and had
Well nigh sated the malice of the wit, ' .
Even until wvery recent period, err
thing indicated a speedy return to law,
and order—a period' when the farmer and
mechanic could t esume the - work, of en
iiching the stele, and providing the means
of 'individual comforthen 'private
wrongs could again be . .redressed 4 the
courts•of the Coning, and martial
driven from otilborders.
I returned to find this hope an illusion..
Bands of lawless men once more roam the
State, and a new reign of terror, even
worse than the former, is being inaugura
ted. Those who were sworn to keep the
peace have forfeited their work of treason.
Those who had executed bonds fot good
behaviour haVe suddenly plunged into the
Wildest excesses of guerilla warfare.—
Those who were pledged, in honor and
gratitude, to abide by the expressed will
of the
,people of , .the State, have broken
their *plighted faith, and seem resolved
upon a war of extermination. I ask the
cause of this, and no rational answer is
given. Subsequent events have even de
monstrated the. falsehood of the original
pretext for the rebellion itself, and cer
tainly no excuse can now be urged to jus
tify this heartless invasion upon the peace
and repoie of an exhausted people, whose
cup of misery Was already full. Is it to
vindicate . the injured, sovereignty of the
State, and establish in- Missouri the Con
federate interpretation of 'State Rights?!
Missouri has solemnly decided, by. a Con
vention of her people, to remain - in the
Union of our fathers, and therefore every
principle of this political heresy itself, as
understood by the disonioutsis of the
present day,.demands an acquiescence in
that decision. Is it to secure-any materi
al interest of which our people have been
divested by the Federal Government ?
No - loyal man dare point to an act of op
pression by that fovenimeut. The disloy
al themselves I ve, so far, claimed and
.reeeived its, tection. Whilst waging 1
vo c al
war for its over 'row, and aiding its ene- I
m i ca in the work of rebellion, th - eirprop-1
ertyhas , been secure, and ieir ilunllics I
have been guarded' by the Federal &mail,
Not one man has yet suffered the penalty ;
of treason. Not a single rebel yet alp- 1
tared, with hands reddened by the. blood II
of his country, has failed ,to receive un-,'
,merited-pardon, upon the simple pledgel;
to do that which honor, gratitude,
man- I I
hood, his own happiness, and the good ofl
mankind, equally deniand at his hands:
Is it to change oureptire system of g0y...,
eminent, building upon its ruins the Con,'
federate idea that labor must be owned by,
capital P If so; an outraged people, whose
rights are at stake, should awake from, 1
their 14thargy, and renew their faith td
the principles of republican liberz: Is it'
to build-petty •kingdoms or republicsfrim
the discifrr i dant elements of the old Union; 1
in order that new places of power and j
trust may be provided for clamorous dem; I
agogues, whose cot rtitnions have forfeited
the confidence of an upright people? :Neil
ther the gratification of party - malice, noti•
the success of personal ambition, will ever
compensate for the burdens and conflicts
of sepal ate nationsor , for the contempt of
the civilized would.
Two years ago it seemed that our syiL
tern of government had become a suirei4„ 1

most sanguine hopes of its founders tirere ,
being more than lealiied. The friends of I
civil and religious liberty throughout the
world could point-with p ode and satisfac

of prevailing public viroe, and the cap- ,

_while, at that time. the past and the pres-1

more brilliant ilitu e, a I). esidential elec

They supposed that, by the tunedialoY

debt would' live swelled to Such alarm
ing. proportions as to come the imknowl

incur ; the risk Of financial ruin. They
fondly hoped that England.and France;
suffering or , the want of cotton, would
lend their aid toward the accompliShment
of their separate,existence In th is event,
theylvould have succeeded in accoMplish-
Mg' all they bad ever desireit---i •confed
eracy if seven or eight states, having a
Monopoly of the cotton etiltiare, with
Slavery acknowledged as the.corner-stone 1
Of their -government, and slave labor for
the production of this monopoly. ,Them
states they hoped would be left unscathed
by the fire of war, and .defended . bl the
border fortifications. The only burden
resulting to them from the revolution,'
they supposed, would be - a largepoblie
debt, which could soon bedischargedloy
the exactions upon American commerce
passing from the rich valleys . of the Ohio
and Mississippi; They thus would cora
niand'the mouths of our great navigable
streams, the Southern Atlantic and the
gulf of Mexico, They rearded di their
'gulf confederacy, (and 1' am 'inclined, to
think they were correct in their opinions,)
'as the most eligibly located on the face
of theearth for the purposes designed—
the establishment of a small, compact na
tion of aristocrats,With slaves to labor for

Cotton, and their coffers filled with treas

lions located in the valleys of the great

Infatuated by these gilded dreains, that
promised greatness without merit,; wealth
without labor,' and security withwit pow
er, they refused to be conciliated. ' They
listened to no words of reabon, and offer
ed' no arguments except denunciallinis,
followed' by the terrors of the mob,
But his idle to speculate upon the past
—the present, possessing more than we
can properly master, is to be dealt
. the earlier days of this rebellion, a
somewhat noted politician of South Caro
line-made the boast, that should the revo
lution fail to secure .the separation of the
South, they could . at least "throw their
arms around the pillars of the Constitu
tien and involve all in . one common
ruin." With prudeneelind determination
on our part, I cannot suppose that tlie re
bellion will succeed iu disruptiug the Un
ion. It becomes, in, the next place, im
portantto inquire bow the'warl can be
most speedily terminated, and our people
secured swami. the loss of comitutional
liberty and the 'bin:delis of a vast panne
debt- inother words, how the ruin, pre
dicted may be best avoided. And. while
we in .Missouri most, do our part in up
holding the government and protecting
the interest ot . loyal men in every part of
the nation, true patriotism does not ex.
elude from consideration the local•weliare
of on- own state. We, above all people
have -suffered from this war. We are"
doomed to suffer yet. more, unless we at
once assume an attitude towards" this s@-
hellion that places u,s fur beyond . the
hopes of treason.
'fhb division among our own citizens in
Missouri is the source of our increased ca
lamitinc., and those cilamities l cannot
cease mail the cause is removed. ( We ewe
alle g iance'to a good government; to
creak that allegiance was a crime against
God. and man. With-Abe curse of that
crime upon 'us, we (=not expect peace.
,Even. yet "the way of the transgressor is
herd." Even yet from the sin Of a t'ew,
many auffer, Let all return to their elle
' giance. Let us, by sonieunmistakable dec
laration, make known unto all then that
Missouri cannot, be shaken . in her attach
ment to the Federal' Government—that
she is ready to sacrifice everything for the
preservation of the triiion,aiid confederate
invasions will shrink back from her soil;
the guerilla bands that now infest her bor
ders will go hence, never to return: So
soon as. the masses arise, shake' off their
lethargy, and speak that word Of deter
mination, the clash of arms %011ie beard'
no more. Let them speak --peace, and.

Soldiers! should not be to loose to

the military authority should be permitte k d

view of depriving them of 'property as a
punishment for treason. The power
forfeiture and confiscation, when it, exists
at all, belong to the courts, and can only'
be ekercised• when guilt has become man-
ifest according to the forms of the law,
But the 'admitted rules of civilized, war-•
fare, n; well as the approved principles of
natural justice, sanction the taking of sifch
property ae mayJbe necessary for the sub
sistence, transportation and comfort of
the army. This should be done Under
careful guarded orders of the commanding
officers,-so l that general distress to private
individuala be avoided, promiscuous
plunder prevented, and the ' rigid disci
pline of the army preserved. It the prop
erty of a leyal man should thus be taken
the Government will see him paid for the
!lass. If the slave of a loyal owner Should
be used in;the construction of fortifica-
Lions or other necessary labor connected
with the operations of the army,- such
owners will be certainly Compensated by
a Government, against which no peaca
ble citizen has ever come w ilh a well
founded charge of injustice.
If the property of rebels shall be :taken
the Government is under no, obligation
for immediate paynien't. It rosy at least
be delayed until the war shall be. closed
and their hands be washed of innocent
blood. jr their slaves shall be taken and
used as prescribed by the law, when the
war shall be ended I shall be the last to

would not believethat Geol . . e B. McClel.

and to humanity, final he had t most in

The following interesting emimunica
tion is from a correspondent of the Lon
don Monica! New : . •
Ainongsfthevarions proposed substi
tutes-for cotton, theici is one , which has
not its yet attracted the attended of scien
tific men—the Indian madar. Plant. It
is, nevertheless, admirably adaisted for
thispurpose, as both the fiber,, the floss
and juice can be employed for commercial
purposes. In the year 1854:11e poisoners
of the Shalipare %Native Goal„ i Beffgdii
were employed in making, mats add cloth
from this plant, under the auspices of an
officier who took great interest in! the sci-,
entifie resource" of India. s • .
The madar is a wild jungle plant,which
prows to' a considerable bight, fibunshing
in almost any soil. Its leaves are ovate, ,
and_ very • thick, tsomewhat resembling
those of the Isurel. l The juice could be - 1
used instead of guile percha; over which
it pOssessesa*considerable advantage, as
the madar Plant retains its vitality after
being repeatedly. cut down to obtain 'the
fluid. Moreover, the great abundance of
. the madar compared with the rareness
. of
the gutta percha tree would tend to aug
ment the value of the madar juice. This
fluid is at first/ milk white, but changes,on .
exposure, to:the sun and air, to 'a dull
brown, like india rubber. It calild be aps
plied to every commercial use hitherto ob
tained for gutta perclus. i -
-To premed : As regards the use in
which it could be substituted for cotton;
if the stalks be soaked either in 'water or
still better, in ,weak alkaline! lye, -the
fibers separate and can be carded like flax
'by the ordinary 'process.
,The natives
simply separate the fibers with their teeth.
These filaments are pale yelloWish, like
fief.; They are very strong, as the na
tivei of India use them for fishing linesin
place of catgut. • - 4.1
Even supposing the application of :the
madar to be but partial, its cultivation,
together with that of the -cotton., plant,
might be carried on with greet adven
t Cage..So far for the fiber. The floss of
the madar strongly resembles elision' silk,
being yellow covered, and very soft. It
can be spun in a manner 'exactly similar
to silk, to which it is scarcely . inferior in
quality. I have also a small/ Portion Of
