' ITritfcuoe the Sentinel. ' Mr. KiIT0R :-The following Address Was delivereJ the other evening in a Democratic Club Room EAST END. Felhtc Detucrat$ .'We are in a bad fix, and we 'must try to work ourselves out of it as best We cau. ' Four years ago last fall we cone all in our power to de feat Abrahim Lincoln.' It Was no go 1 He was elected in spite of our teeth. The South rebelled ! We thought it 'a good opportcnity to break down that de testable pirty, called the Republicans. We done all we could to arouse' sympa thy from our "Southern brethren.'' We discouraged enlistments and sont our men to Canada.' It was all "no go." An army was raised, the Democrats in the South were encimpased round about by Yan kee Solders. The time arrived for anoth er Presklcntial election, and a move was made ti extend the right of suffrage to the wdiers. We always said tre had more soldiers in the army than the Re publicans, yet", as a matter of necessity we opposed the soldiers' vote. Notwith standing our opposition it carried. They got their votes. We then dared not say much against it. We yielded as au honest man should do.. We commenced begging for their votes for Gen. McClcl- lan, hut all in vaiu. hen the returns came in, it cppearel as if though the name of McClellan had nevef been known in the army. Lincoln was re-elected, and with hiai Ardy Johnton, notwithststid- iug the declaration in the Chicago Plat form that the ''experiment of th sword to restore the Union was a failure." Although we represented Mr. Johnson aa a "broke-down politician," the "Tennes see outlaw," a "ruffian," and every other bad name imaginable, and our party refus ed to let him speak in the Halls of the Stat House at Harrisburg because he was an abolition emmissary,"yet we could not gain the day. We ako told the peo ple that ere long the niggers woultLswarui up North, and take all the work from the poor white men. Now these scamps won't come after all. Now Lincoln is dead and Andy Johnson is President, and we have tried another game. Since everybody has a liking to him and we have lost so much by abusing Lincoln we thought we would own him as a Democrat, and through him build up our party, but that appears to fail again, although we have been doing all in our power to make peo ple believe he belonged to our party; they tell us they remembered too well how we abused him only a few short months ago. And when . we tell hint he belongs to our party, the old cuss always gives us to understand that we do not bolong to hit, that he don't want to sseociate with us. He did lately manifest in unmistakable signs that he .followed in the very foot steps of Mr. Lincoln, by refusing to allow the Writ of Habeat Curput to operate in the case of. Mrs. SurratL He is also now telling the Southerners that they can not be recognized as States in the Union, uulcss they abandon Slavery, which ap pears to have been the bone of contention for so long a time. ,' ' " ". ' ' " " "' Now Gentlemen, what'a to be done ? The party must be built up again, and we must exorcise all our ingenuity to get it accomplished.. We aro in a bad fix, in. deed. . We are Jacking in three essential points vis: 1.) We are very scarce in material. 2.) Wo have hardly an Archi tect able to devise a plan for the struc ture, and 8,) we have no Foundation. . I would now suggest that we try our skill at it, and if we can't succeed; we will submit the matter to our High Priest Vallandigbam, and if it's no go then, then I knew better way than to abandon the job as one of the ;'Impo9sibi!ities" I have read of once, and Jet the Republicans rule- ; In fact, Mr. President, our jarty re minds me of a man who heard, goaie years ago, that the old Lewistown Bank had broken, and came running home to gco whetkor he had any notes on that lank, and then felt greatly relieved when he found he had none on that bank nor on any orter bank. So we have been growl ing about the abolitionists breaking the Constitution and haviug such bad priuoi- ples until lo and behold whoa we come to look at on rsel res we find that we have not a sioglts nrinrle.left. I am thaukful for. put itt'trtfro-ani bid you good night. DELRGASHl'N uy HISSELF. AND VISITS THE PRESI BENT- Saist'b Ret (which is im the ) 1 STAtT fV Noo GarseT,) V . . : :.

" ' '", As many of our readers kaow Colonel Scott personally; they Will keenly . appre ciate the point of the following incideat of the war in the Southwest' Coi Scott' spent the spring and part cf the summer of 1962 along the Mississippi, as Assis tant Secretary of War, giving his person al attention to the campaign for the open ing of the river. , Ever vigilant aud no less unobtrusive, he had oucatiot) to give Gen. Pope a very quiet but most impress ive lesson on good manners, and we doubt not that one was quite enough for the pompous commander. Wc quote from the New York Tribute: I heard while at Pillow, au anecdote of Gen. Pope an officer of ability, but sometimes a very unpleasant man, with a . pompous aud hectoring uiaaocr which will bear repetition. While at his head quarters, the General was approached by -a rather small man, plain-looking, and en- ' tircly uuassuming, in citizen's attire, with the question : - "Are you Gen. Pope, sir?" .'i "That is my name," was the answer in rather a repelling tone. " : "I would like to see you, then, on a ' matter of business." "Call on my adjutant, sir. He will ' arrange any business you may have." "But I wish to hare a personal oonvcr sition with you."' ; ' "See my Adjutant," in an anthoratire voice. "But--" . "Did I not tell you to see my Adju--tant? Trouble me no more, sir," and Pope Was walking away. "My name is Scott, General," quietly i remarked the Email, plain man. , "Confound you! What do I care," thundered Pope in a rising passion, "if your name is Scott, or Jones, or Jenkinp, or Snook, for the matter of that ' See my Adjutant, I tell you, fellow t Leave my presence "' "I am,", continued the quiet man, io his quiet way, "the Assistant Secretary, of War, and ' What a revolution those simple word made in the General's appearance and manner! His angry, haughty, domineering air was dispelled in a moment, and a flush of comfusion passed over his altered ie.ee. "1. beg your pardon, Mr Scott, I hal no idea whom 1 was addressing. Pray be seated ; I shall be happy to grant you an interview at any time. Possibly a very close" observer might have seen a faint half-contemptuous smile on the Secretary's lip though he said no thing, but began to unfold hi business without comment. After that unique interview, Potio and the Assistant Secretary were frequent jy together, and I vcuture U ay the-- lalter had no reason subsequently to Com plain of the General's rudeness. Gen. Grant on NgoRoScrtRAUE.-- General Grant, both from his position a head of the army and from the prestige he has won, is likely to become as impor tant to our Government for the remain-' der of his life as the Dnke of Wellington was to the British Government in' the lat ter half of his public career. 1 His views, therefore, will always be of interest :'', In this connection; we give" the following from the Chicago' Tribune :' "Ucneral Urant m conversation with his friends, says that .it is " too ' soon ' to declare that the loyal blacks in the South khall not be allowed to vote. Aside from .he abstract right and the legal problem of what suthority can confer or' withhold he franchise whether Congress or the States the question may assume the shape of a political necessity. The Gov ernment and people may have to choose between keeping a standing army lor 109,000 men b an expense of f 100 ,000,- 000 a year to the tax-payers, to support the white minority in the- South-' against the white Rebel majority; or of enfran chising the blacks and thereby enabling' them to support the whifo loyalist.
