THE LAST DAYS OF WHEN BESS.
Charles Kingsley gives us in his "Miscellany"
a new version of the dying days of the suscepti
ble, but stoical Queen of England :
Queen Elisabeth dies, and dies of grief. It
has been the fashion to attribute to her remorse
for Essex's death ; and the foolish'and false tale
about Lady Nottingham' and the ring has been
accepted as history. The facts seem to be, that
she never held up her head after Burleigh"s
death. She could not speak of him Without tears;
forbade his name to Ike mentioned in the council.
No wonder; never had a mistress a better ser
vant. For nearly half a century had those two
noble 80018 loved each other, trusted each other,
worked with each other; and God'e bleeding bad
been on their deeds; and now the faithful God
fearing man has gone to his reward ; and she is
growing old, and knows that the ancient fire is
dying out in her; end who will be to her what
he was f Bukhara is a good man, and one of
her old pupils; and she makes him Lord Trea
surer in Burleigh's pima); but beyond that, all
is dark. I sat a miserable, forlorn woman ;
there is none about me that I cen trust."
R. FRENCH, Proprietor
She sees through false Cecil, through li talse
Henry Howard.. Essex has proved himself worth
less, and pays the penalty of his sins. Men are
growing wersn o than their fathers. Spanish gold
is bringing in luxury and sin. The last ten years
of her reign are years of decadence, profligacy,
falsehood; and she cannot but see it. T,yrone's
rebellion is the last drop that fills the cup. After
fifty yenta of war, after a drain of money at but.
fabulous, expended on keeping Ireland quiet, the
volcano burst forth again just as it seemed ex
tinguished, more fiercely than ever, and the
whole work has to be done over again, when
there is neither time nor a, sistt W do It, And
ahead, what hope is there for England?. Who

will be her successor? She .knows in her heart
it will be Imes, but she cannot bring herself to
To bequeath the fruits of her labor to a tyrant,
a liar, and a coward 1 (for she knows the man
but WO Weil l ) it ie WO hideous tO be faced. This
is the end then ? "Oh, that 'I were a milk maids,
with a paile upon mine arm !" But it cannot be.
It never could have been ; and she must endure
it to the end. "Therefore, I bated life; yea, I
hated all my labor which I had taken under the
sun, because I should leave it to the man that
shall be after me. And who knows whether he
shall be a wise man or a fool? Yet shall he have
Cute over all my labor wherein I have showed
myself wise in wisdom, and knowledge, and
equity. Vanity of vanities, all is vanity and
vexation of spirit!" And so, with the whole
book of Ecclesiastes written on that mighty
heart, the old lioness coils herself up In her lair,
refuses food, and dies. We know few passes in
this world's history so Ulf& as that death.
A LITERARY CURIOSITY.
The following poetical effusion in manuscript
recently "turned up" among a mass of old papers
in our drawer, The inilLalletters of the lines
form the words "My boast is in the glorious
cross of Christ ;" and the words in italic, read
from top to bottom and from bottom to top, com
pose the Lord's prayer.
Make known the gospel truths, our father, king,
Yield us thy grace, dear Pother, from above,
Bless us with hearts which feelingly can sing,
Our life ticou•art, for ever, God of love:!" -
Assuage our griefs as love, for Chriet, we pray,
Since the blight Prince of heaven and glory died,
Took all our shame and hallowed the display,
Infant be-ing first a man and then was crucified.
Stupendous God! thy grace and power make
In Jesus' name let all the world rejoice. -
New labors in thy heavenly kingdom own,
That blessed kingdoM, for thy saints the choice.
Row vile to come to thee, is all our cry,
Enemies to thy self and all that's thine,
Graceless our will, we live for vanity,
Loathing thy very be ing, evil in design.
0 God, thy will be done/rem earth to heaven.
Reclining on the
-gospel let us live,
In earth from sin delivered and forgiven.
Oh at thyself hut teach ns to forgive,
Unless its power temptation doth destroy,
Sure is our fall into the depths of woe,
Carnal in mind, we've not a glimpse of joy
Raised against heaven: in us no hope can flow
O give us grace and. lead Mt in the way,
Shine on us with thy love and give us peace,
Self and this sin which rise against us slay.
Ohl grant each day our trespass-es may cease,
Forgive our evil deeds that oft we do,
Convince us daily of them, t o our shame,
Help us with heavenly dread, forgive us too,
Recurrent lusts, and we'll adore thy name,
In thy forgive-ness we as Rains can die,
Since for us and our trespasses n! high,
Thy Son, our Saviour, bled on Calvary.
THE "NO PEACE" CRY.
The Dover, N. H., Gazette touches the point
about the "No Peace" cry of Radicals, accurate-
"Suddenly there is concert of voices in the
Radical ranks, crying out lustily against the very
idea of peace. For what did we go to war, then,
save to establish a firm and permanent peace f
Even President Lincoln said in his inaugural ad.
dress—' If you go to war you cannot fight al
ways.' Certainly not. As an exchange well
remarks, a war that excludes from its objects all
considerations of - peace, brings infamy upon
those who wage it. The sole object of every just,
war is peace ; else it cannot and ought not to
succeed. This sudden fury of a No Peace' cry
has a special meaning_ Its wonderful corieert,
taken up at the same time by all the Republican
presses, large and small, means -something more
than stimulus for the war alone. It means, if
we mistake not, that every voice and vote of re
sistance to Government usurpation and falsity be
suddenly snuffed out; that there shall be no
such a thing as an opposition in this time of
war; that we may not so much as demand of
those whom we have entrusted with power, that
they shall obey Constitutional principles ; end,
above all, that by raising up a system of terror
'such as they hope to do by their secret ar
rests, dragging off to prison, slang about trai
tors,' 'disloyalty,' 'copperheads,' and the like,
people will be cowed into-en profound a subnils
pion that they will 110 , dare oppose either their
management of the war or their plans to secure
a partisan triumph in the next Presidential eke
tion. Thevefiecting masses are able, however,
to see through these things."
PREACHING TO A PURPOSE.
Recently the Bishop of Orleans, France, had
occasion to appeal to his flock in behalf of those
suffering in the, manufacturing thereinto of
France. After a magnificent celebration of High

A valiant king, whose name is still a household

That Was his whole sermon. The effect was
marvellous; ladies responded by throwing all the

HON. HIESTER CLYMER,
OF BURKS COUNTY,
IN THE SENATE OF PENNSYLVANIA,
On the Revolution tendering the we of the Senate
Chamber to Ro- Governors Johnson and Wright.
Faivav, March 6, 1863.,
Mr. Warm: submitted the following resolution,
which was twice read;
WHEREAS,' Governor Andrew Johnson,•of Ten•
nessee, a brave and loyal man, whose devotion
to the Union is fully attested by his sacrifices
and efforts in the cause of his country, and Fa-
Governor Joseph A. Wright, a distinguished and
patriotic citizen of the State of Indiana, are
about to visit Harrisburg and propose to address
the people on the great questions now agitating
the public mind and which are of so much mo
ment to the stability of the General Government;
Resolved, That Governor Andrew Johnson, of
Tonnages, and Ez-Gooernor Joseph A. Wright,
of Indiana, be and they are hereby tendered the
uee of the hall of the Senate this afternoon for
the purpose of addressing their fellow-citizens
The question before the Senate being on the
adoption of the resolution
Mr. LAMBERTON offered the following amend—
ment to the resolution :—to add to the resolution
the words : and that the use of the hall of the
Senate be likewise extended to Major General
George B. McClellan, in which to receive the
hosts of his admiring friends of this, his native
State; and that the Senate invite him to visit
'the State Capital for that purpose."
Mr. LOWRY. I have but a single word to say,
and I would not say it had not the name of
George 13. McClellan been introduced here at
this time. The name of George S. McClellan and
Andrew Johnson will go down to future
generations, but those two men will not be seen,
in future time, as being arm in arm or breast to
breast together. They will go down in history
upon the same page. Of one of them no eulogy
is needed. God and history are just_ With re—
ference to Generni McClellan, I have only to say
that the strongest and highest mark of his char
acter in Time's holy history will be that with
the most finely equipped, best fed, and the brav—
est army of men that ever stood on the earth—
one hundred and twenty thousand strong—he
stood for eight long months in the presence of
an enemy of forty thousand men with wooden
guns. I hope that the amendment will be voted
down. It comes from unclean hands.
Mr, CLYMER said:—
Mr. Speaker, on Ibis day, at this hour, in. this
place, a great issue is on trial, fraught with the
interests, not only of the present but of the fu
ture ; and if I, in the decision of this issue, have
acted a part, however unimportant, I shall here
after look back to this day, to this hour and to
this place, with feelings of no little gratification.
The issue involved is nut one of persons; it is
one of high principle going back to the founda
tions of the Government. It is, sir,whether the
loyalty of the citizen is to be juded of by his
fealty and adherence to an administration, or
whether it is t 9 be determined by his fealty and
adherence to the Government of the United States.
In order to decide this question, it is necessa
ry to present this brief exposition of the situation
of affairs—that without a Constitution there
could have been no Government and no Union,
and that unless there is fealty and adherence to
that Constitution, there can be no true loyalty to
the Government and Union based on it. That is
the issue to be tried to-day. Disguise it as you
may—attempt to confuse it for party purposes,
party reasons, and by party chicanery—the issue
presented by every Republican Senator who has
preceded me in this discussion ' is that my loyal
ty is to be tested, not by my adherence and de
votion to the Constitution of the United States,
but by my adherence to the administration of
Abraham Lincoln, the present occupant of the
Presidential chair !!
I say to you, sir, I say to every Senator, I say.
it to the people whom I represent, I say it to
the people of this State, that there is no such
test known to the Constitution ; nor to any tri•
bunal before which I, you, they or any one can
ever be summoned to answer. I repeat it (hat
the Government is founded upon the Comfits
tutiou ; that the Administration is a mere crea
ture of that Constitution and that Government ;
and that where, in defiance of that Constitution
and the Government erected upon it, an Admin
istration strays from Se principles--strays froth
the pathways cut by our ancestors through the
rook of uncertainty and danger—then he only is
a truly loyal man who uses every effort to bring
back the Administration to the old beaten path
which avoids the dangers of fanaticism and error.
That is the. question to be tested here and now,
in the veto upon this resolution. That is the
question to be decided ; and the people of this
state, outside of these halls, will so consider it,
and I now, as heretofore, appeal to the people
from whom springs all power, to sustain me, and
those who may vote with me in deciding this
question as best befits our judgmont under our
What is the question presented ? It is a pro
position to invite Andrew Johnson, the so-celled
Governor of Tennessee, to address the people of
Pennsylvania from the Senate chamber of this
State. I have various reasons for opposing this
proposition. In the first place, I hare baldly
proclaim that be is not at this hoar and never
has been, by the Constitution or under the laws,
the Governor of the State of Tennessee, except
when years ago he was elected to that office by
the people, I say, air, that his appointment by
the President of She United States to that peel-
Lion was a usurpation of power on the part of the
President, and that there is no - warant under the
Constitution, no authority in the laws, for his ap
pointment; and that ovary act which he has
assumed to perform by virtue of his unconstita.
tional and illegal appointment has been in dero
gation of the rights of a sovereign State, and in
fiat vioration of the Constitution of the United
States. I say, sir, furthermore, that no such
position as military Governor of a State is known
to the Constitution of the United States—that
there is nothing in that instrument whicligna
thorises the President of the United Sta te
appoint a military Governor of any State—and
that to make such an appointment was to create
the State of Tennessee a military province—and
that his appointment was made to carry out and
subserve the purposes of the present Adminis
tration, which is to reduce all the States of this
Union to the condition of mere dependencies of
a consolidated oligarchy or despotism. That is
my position, so far as concerns this pretended
Governor of Tennessee. Andrew Johnson has
not been far years, and is not now, the Governor
of that State ; and I will never recognize him as
such, by voting for this resolution. But, air,
without regard to any question of his official
position, take Andrew Johnson as an individual,
seaming Ow he is rightfully clothed with the
robes of office, and may constitutionally exercise
the duties of that high position; even then, I
say to you, Mr. Speaker, that I never by my
vote will allow a man to come into these halls
and from this place speak to the people of this
great State in support of what I know to be
illegal, unconstitutional Ind tyraDW.cal acts of the
Federal Government. 1 know, air, that Andrew
Johnson has gone as far as the farthest, and is
ready to go still further, to destroy, to uproot,
to upturn every principle upon which this great
and good Government of ours wee founded. I
know that he has bent with.suppliant knee be
fore the throne of power; I know that, ter pelf
or some other consideration, he has succumbed
to every measure presented to him for approval
or disapproval; and I know that in speeches
delivered in the capitals of other States he hag
enunciated doctrines which, if adopted by the
[VOL. XXIII.-NO. 49.-WHOLE NO. 1991.
people of the great north,' would be subversive
of individual freedom and personal right, tSir,
by no vote of mine can any person holding such
views address the people of Pennsylvania in this
chamber. Never, sir,
never, so long as I have a
right to forbid him. Lei me, sir, test this ques
tion by contrast. Let me ask the majority of
this Senate, whether he who has lately bee,bsp•
tiied by the votes of three hundred thousand
men in the Empire State of this Union—one of
the greatest of living statesmen and most patri
otic of men—Horatio Seymour—whether if that
distinguished Governor were on bin way from the
East to the West, through thin capital, be would
get a single vote from that Republican side of
this chamber permitting him to address his fel
low-citizens in this hall? Not one—not one.
Would Joel Parker, the Governor of New Jersey,
elected by the people, get one vote for snob a put..
pose ? Would David Turpie, who by the votes
of the people of Indiana is the successor of one of
the men, whom, by the resolution, it is proposed
to have address us—would David Turpie be per
milled, by the votes of members on the other
side of this chamber, to occupy thin hall for the
purpose of delivering an address i Not one vote
would he receive. Yet be is the chosen repre
sentative of the majority of the people of Indiana
—anointed by their sanction, baptized by the
majority of their votes. Not one vote would -he
get, and •you know il. You, gentlemen on the
other side, fear the verdict of the people ; you
have reason to know what it means; and he who
comes to you clothed with all the glory of the
popular will, but lately expressed, you will east
off for a mere hireling of federal patronage and
Mr. Loma. Is not the man of whom the
Senator speaks a disloyal man ?
Mr. CLYMER. The people of Indiana have sent
him to the United States Senate, and who dare
deny or questiun the choice of a sovereign State.
But, sir I who is the individual whose name we
ask shall be embraced in this resolution ? Who
is he whom we would ask to come here and re
ceive the hospitalities of this State ? He who
next to him who was "first in war, first in
peace and first in the hearts of his countrymen,"
is the people's idol—he who amid doubt and
gloom, upon more than one occasion, has rescued
order from anarchy—he who, upon more than
one occasion has been the means of saving this
Government—he who has the great heart of the
greatest army upon this continent throbbing
every day, every hour, every moment in unison
with his own—MAJOR GENERAL GEORGE B.
MCLELLAN!! ! He, sir, has been denied the
hospitality of a Legislative body in which you
Republicans have a majority.- You will not vote
to tender him those hospitalities—and why ?
Because he too is anointed not only by the voice
of the great people, but by the adoration of the
hearts of the army of the Potomac. You will
not pass such a resolution if his name is
to be included. No, you who have the power
now for a few months or years will not sanction
anything that savors of what the people desire.
You are determined that they never shall be
seen, never heard. That is the determination
which you are acting out here and elsewhere. I
tell you, sir, that those who have been disrobed
and disowned by the people, who are the mere
minions of eaeotttive power, and who submit to
the subversion of the peoples' rights and liber
ties, I never will consent shall speak from your
chair to the people of this State—never, sir,
It is known to you, sir, whose legislative ex
perience in this hall extends baolito a period
commensurate with my own, that lam not in
the habit of wandering from the particular sub
ject before the Senate to introduce general
issues and extended arguments. But, sir, this
debate has been far diverted from the original
question. It I. as embraced all the subjects that
could agitate the public mind at this time. It it
had even rested there, I should have remained
content. But gentlemen upon this floor have
chosen to single me out amongst the Democratic
Senators here—and refer to the probable. results
of my action upon my own future, I, sit, am an
individual—individuals as compared with prin.
ciples and great results are nothing. Principles
and truth are eternal. Man is mortal and goes
to his kindred dust'; but if, sir, in his person,
in his acts in public or in private life, he repre
oents truth, he represents principle—if when
power, passion or prejudice threaten to destroy
the rights of the people, he dare stand up in
defence of them, he may die, he may go to his
fathers blessed or unblessed. A Hampden and
others have illustrated this. They have gone
down in gloom; but they are now held up in
brightness and in glory ; and, air, no matter
what may become of me in regard to this day's
.action, I know that I shall be sustained when
the passion and prejudice and violence of the
hour have given way to the sober thoughts
which govern men when they ere not bereft of
I might in this connection repel—repel indig
nantly, repel with truth—the assaults that have
been attempted to be made upon the great party.
with which I have the honor to act. You, sir,
were here in April, 1861 ; you will recollect that
when the first gun wee fired Upon Fort Sumter,
that that one shot fused the great heart of the
people of this State and presented it as a wall of
adamant against rebellion and treason at the
South. You know that without stint, without
measure, that great heart, Democratic and Repub
lican, poured out everything for a common pur
pose. You recollect that in July, 1861, when we
had been defeated upon the plains of Dull Run,
when the army of the Republic came into Wash
ington with tattered banners—when there was
fear and dismay there, here and elsewhere—
when the Republic was tottering and the Presi
dent was almost a suppliant for his place—you
know there was no division of sentiment or feel.
lug. You further know that in the Congress of
the United States, on the 22d of July, after that
defeat, a resolution was offered defining and set
ting forth the objects of the straggle. You know
that that resolution was adopted by a nearly
unanimous vote. You know that in that hour of
fear and dismay, of trial and of danger, that re
came as the voice of hope from Heaven.
It reassured the people ; it told them that this
was to be no visionary, no fanatical struggle, but
it was to be pursued for the purpose of sustain
ing the Constitution sad mitering the Union of
our fathers, and that when this object should be
attained, pesos would reign once more. What
was the result ? From the disorganized, helpless
and beaten materials of that army, he whom it
is asked to-day to invite to the capital of his own
State, and to whom that boon is denied by Re
pnbli, a i Senators, seized hold of those discordant
materials, and with the hand and mind of genius
prepared them again to go upon the enemy. I
will not trace his history. It is written imper
ishably upon the annals of the past; and it will
shine in those of the future. But I will tutu for
a moment to a period a year later, when another
disaster met our arms on the same geld, and
when the panic-stricken President and his ad
visers again crouched with fear within the walls
of Washington, when they felt that the Hotta
and Vandals were at their gates, when they were
providing for flight to some 'spot of safety, and
when they felt that power and place were vanish
ing. Again in palsied fear they appealed to him
when for party purposes they had degraded, and
again, like a true patriot, like one who never
acts from sordid or improper motives, he assumed
the command of that routed and demoralized
army, and in less than three weeks he had again
organized it and had commenced the pursuit of
the common enemy across the hills of Maryland
and into a plain where many of those who now
hear me met the enemies of their country face to
face. What did he do? A second time he saved
the Republic—he saved it by snatching victory
out of the very jaws of defeat, and I now place
upon record the universal sentiment of every
man who served under him, that if it had not
been for the confidence of the army of the Polo.
mac in General M'Clellan t Pennsylvania would
have suffered an invasion which would have been
destructive to the life and property of her peo
ple; and yet Senators refuse to receive the pro
tector and defender of the State is the hails of
her Capital. But what is the subsequent history
of this matter ? Shattered and broken, his
legions lay awhile for rest, to be clothed, to be
fed, to be restored to their wonted vigor; and
then again he was in pursuit of that enemy whom
he had met at Antietam and at South Mountain,
and it faated.• But, sir, when he was about to
strike his blow, be was again pursued by the
miscreants who wished to divert this war 'from
the purposes set forth in the resolution of Ally,
1861 , and dragged down from his position as
commander of the army. Re left it dielpirited,
broken hearted, dejected—obedient, it is true,
but without nerve, without vigor, without power.
Ile left it at the dictation and command of the
ultra Abolitionists of the North. George B.
M'Clellan was not an Abolitionist and therefore
he wa's not a General!!! The remaining history
of that campaign is written in blood and in die..
aster. But, sir, I will tell jou that along the
camp fires of the Potomaclitt night, no soldier
goes to sleep without praying God for blessings
upon the head of his old commander ; and oh !
sir, if those in power could summon the resolu
tion to east behind them the prejudices and the
passions of those who do not wish to see this
Union restored unless slavery be abolished, that
noble commander would be put again at the head
of that army and he would carve'our victory and
would bring back to us once more triumph and
peace and Union. I know it, they know it, you,
gentlemen, know it; and if you had the man
hood which you should possess, you would by
joint resolutions speak this truth to the powers
that be and make them hear you!
Mr. fipecker, it may be proper for me at this
time to state-what I believe to be the purposes of
the great party with which I have the honor to act.
In the words of another, who from his exalted
position has a right to speak, I will tell you
‘. that the Democratic party has never agreed,
does not now agree, and have no intention of
agreeing in future to a dissolution of the Ameri
can Union ;" and I will say to you , farther, that
we propose to accomplish the preservation of the
Government and the Constitution by the union
of the sword with the olive branch. For those who
will resist the power of the Government—not the
power of the Administration, not its unconstitu
tional acts, but the power of this Government
rightfully administered under the COnliitalol4
we have the sword. For those . who are willing
to submit to its benign, its healthful and its
peaceful sway, we will hold out the olive branch
of peace. And here I will say to you, sir, (and
in saying it I feel that I express the opinion of
the great Democratic party of this State,) that
we believe and will ever believe that the laws
which have been passed by the Congress just
ended the confiscation and other acts-2
have steeled the heart of the people of the South
—there is no such thing ai a Union man left in
those States now engaged in rebellion, and we
tell you that we intend to melt the heart of that
people by repealing your unjust, your unconsti
tutional laws ' and when it is melted we expeit
out of that heart to bring peace and happinesS
to the people North and South. We say to you,
Mr. Speaker, that we do not believe it is in the
power of twenty million, of men to subdwiand
bring back that people, unless you have among
them allies who are attached to your cause, de
feted to the principles of the Constitution and
its guarantees, and desiring its protection—that
you can never, never exterminate or enbjugate
But we tell you, sir, that if you will do only
what the Constitution and the principles spring
ing from it demand, on every bill and in every
valley there will be raised up allies for our aß
eistance. The leaders who desire place and
power may be against us, but when the people
of the South, recollecting the glories of the past,
and looking to those of the future, feel that every
right is to be guaranteed, every privilege restor
ed to them, then, as I believe in my God, I be
lieve that they will come back to the Constitution
of the old government and to the old Union. I
. tell you now, Mr. Speaker, that all the blood, all
the treasure you have spent or may spend, will
be in vain, unless you repeal the unconstitution
al, oppressive, tyrannical laws which were enact
ed by the last Congress, and I will say in paesing
that I believe (the Supreme Arbiter being my
judge) that if that Congress had never met, or if,
having met, they had simply voted appropril
lions and distiolred, ltaiVing the whole question
to be settled under the resolution adopted in
July, 1861, this contest would are now have
been settled, and at this day we would be enjoy
ing unity, peace and amity. Upon the heads of
those who prevented such action—upon the heads
of those men who enacted those unconstitutional
and damnable laws, and did everything in their
power to combine the southern heart against us
—forever be the curse of the blood and mourning
that fill this land. If the demon of destruction
and of hate—if the father of evil himself could
have been there dictating their cottage% acinat
lug them to deeds which must result in the atter
dismemberment of this Union, he could not more
thoroughly have effected his hellish purpose than
it has been effected by the dominant majority in
the Senate and in the House during the last
Congress. And when the history of these times
comes to be written, (and I pray to 151941 that the
historian of this era may not be obliged to write
of the decline and fall of the American republic,
but that he may only write of its trials past and
present and of its future greatness,) he will
record the hour when the nation came so near to
desolation and death, and'he will ascribe the
disasters of that hour to the =emitted, web—
tent, diabolical maehinatione of abolitionists In
and out of the last Congress. Such a historian,
if he has the philosophy of Hume—if he has his
far seeing penetration and can trace effects from
causes, cannot fall in the contemplative hour of
the future to say what I say at this moment; that
to them sold? and sheerly belongs the terrible
calamity that still darkens and enshrouds this
land. In conclusion, sir, what do we propose to
declare by voting against this resolution? We
propose to say that no one, who has been the
instrument, the partaker, the supporter of these
tyrannical, these unconstitutional, these arbitra
ry measures which have fused the southern heart
and divided our own, shall be heard from the
capital of this State. We propose to say that we
will not listen to him as a body representing the
people of this state ; we propose to say that the
verdict of the people of the State at the Mat tiled
tion was against all such damnable heresies. We
mean to tell you, gentlemen, that although we
have not a majority here; we have it on the other
side of this ball, and we have it among the peo—
ple. We mean to tell you that that majority
counted by three thousand last year will be ten
times three thousand at the next election. We
mean to tell you that we are going to bring you
beck to the cane of the Constitution and Union.
We mean to tell you that we are going to neethe
sword and the olive branch in settling this
culty—that whether north or south, we will use
the sword upon those who are opposed to the
Constitution—that we will not allow any person,
whether in the south or in the north, to disobey,
to disregard, %ignore or to set at defiance the
Constitution or the United Staten. We mean to
tell you that the same law which is to be obeyed
at the south is to be obeyed at the north. The
people are with ns, and by the grace of God and
the voice of the people, before nine months roll
around we shall have it in our power to put in
execution all that we say. [Great applause and
