Thursday Evening, December 11, 1862
One of the best jokes of the season is com
bined in the speech of John Van Buren, lately
delivered by the Prince in New York, in the
course of which he takes the administration by
the beard, - and becomes over valiant whilst
talking big to those in power. Those who know
John, will laugh athis exhibition of valor, be
cause he is the most notorious coward and brag
gart in :existence, to day in the universe.
John wants notoriety. He feels that he is
stale. A lodgment in one of the forts of the
country, as a political prisoner, would freshen
the Prince, and give him eclat as an offset
to the odium which has been attached to
the name of Van Buren since his father became
an apostate to Democracy; and his son John a
buffoon in the political purlieus of New York.
Of course the administration will not arrest
such a knave as John Van Buren. By letting
him run loose, and permitting him to rail
against the truth, and indulge in bitter language
against those who are struggling to save the
country, its cause will be strengthened among
those who love the truth and are ready to fight
in its defence. Ever since John Van Burtin
had his nose pulled in the streets of London, by.
a nincompoop cockney, he has conducted him
self as a fool, if not as an as. Let him bray
then, fur all the harm he can accomplish.
No man ever occupied the Presidential chair,
that so completely perplexes the party arrayed
in opposition to him, as does Abraham Lincoln.
His honesty, his independence, his patriotism
and his impartiality, are qualities which Demo
cratic editors and politicians cannot fully com
prehend, simply because they have never
attempted their cultivation, and hence the
maize of doubt, despair, affected disgust and
bewildering surprise in which the official acts
of the President leave his opponents. The
second annual message of Abraham Lincoln is
a thorn in the side of the Democracy. It lets
out traitor blood as well as locofoco bile. There
is that in its argument which commands the
serious attention of the more reasonable and
intelligent of the Democracy, while its state
ment of facts and positions against the rebels
and their abettors, leaves no room for doubt
among those who had hoped to intimidate the
President in pursuing the policy he first avowed
as eminently necessary to crush the- rebellion.
The President, perhaps better than any other
man in the country, comprehends the cause
and the mire of the troubles in which the
country is now involved. If this were not so,
the Democracy would not be so perplexed and
maddened by his action. If Abraham Lincoln
did 11'4 fully understand the work be has to
perform, he would not be assailed by such men
as John Van Buren, (the paid northern advocate
of southern treason) and William B. Reed.
These cold blooded and money hunting lawyers
know exactly what the President designs—
others like them, fully understand the terrible
trials that are approaching, and nnw the effect
is being made, if possible, to thwart the ad
ministration iu the execution of its work, in
the enforcement of the laws which have ema
nated from Congress . and received the sanction
of the people.
Gradually the problem of whether the negro
is capable of bearing tomb in the present fray;
with benefit to the government, is beingsolved.
If the negro can work under the lash of a master,
he can be trained to fight under the rigid rule
of military discipline. If he can meet death
unflinchingly, as his race is forced to do daily
in the south, by torture, by sudden destruction
or by slow punishments of the patriarchs who
preside over the broad plantations of the cot
ton states, he is capable of standing fire—at
fighting for that which he is convinced will be
for his benefit. This question of the negro's
ability to fight, is bound to be settled with the
questions affecting the permOnency of the Gov
ernment or the success of the Confederacy.
In the rebel army, negroes have long held an
important place. In every battle which has
yet been fought, negroes have been regarded
as important adjuncts by the rebel leaders, and
now the question forces itself md the people of
the loyal states, as to whether the negro should
not be compelled to bear a portion of the bur
dens in a contest in which his destiny is so close
ly connected. The results of the wi ' r will be
displayed in the destiny of the black man, in
a manner at once affecting his existence and his
condition. If the Confederacy should become a
permanent success, (which is only a dream of De
mocracy,) every negro in the south now claim
ing to be free, would at once be enslaved, while
the chances would be nine to one of enslaving
every free negro that could be carried south from
the north, a inisiness which would then become
more profitable, than the present trade of
100 foco lying for political power. Why, then,
should not the negro be permitted to fight? To
fight that the government may be preserved, and
that some policy or mode may be devised and
adopted, whereby he may be protected from sla
very and removed to such locality ag is fitted for
his social improvement and Christian regenera
tion. This is bound to be the resultof thepresent
struggle, whether the negro fights or not, provi
ded the authority of the Federal Government is
ever again re-instated in the revolted States.
The success of the National Government will
be tantamount to the overthrow and destruc
tion of slavery. We all feel that that success
is certain. Why then should not the negro,
who is so deeply intended in the triumph,
be permitted to shed some of his blood for its
achievement ? Sensible people are pondering
this question very seriously, and however poll;
ticians may at t emptt to ,engenderworse
prejudices against the negro than those which'
now 'exist, an answer will be extorted ;before
this war is ended, and the 7kegrolwilf be in
vited to join in striking blows ageitilt that
which has not only been the source of Ids op.,
pression, but the source and the cause of all the
wrongs which labor has suffered in this Re
Several opportunities of destroying the rebel
lion have presented themselves and been lostL.
It might have been destroyed at Corinth soon
after the battle of Corinth, if our army had only
been two days earlier in the preediratiOna for an
attack upon Beauregard's entrench'meriti. It
might have been destroyed at Manassas if we
had attacked the rebels there Whilst they were
effecting their retreat to Richmond.' Itt might
have been destroyed at Yorkbwn•if our troops
had been twenty•foin hours quicker in arrang
ing to strike than they were. It might have
been destroyed at Antietam if the victory of
that bloody field had been followed up. It might
have been destroyed at Chaplin Hills if' Our
magnificent army had rushed vigorotudy. upon
the enemy, and pressed him to the wall after the
Here were four lost opportunities. No
human sagacity can foresee when we shall have
another. God grant that the nett, if if shall'
ever come, may not be Yozirnal.
Who threw away these opportunities'? . 'This
is a question whicit such newspapers as the
Louisville Journal should ponder and prePare to
answer, for assuredly the opportunities disre
garded'and the time wasted in the conflict. for
the Government, may be traced to the policy
which- Was forced on the country by the Border
State men. The influence of the men in the,
Border States has been to delay action—to post
pone the blows of war—to Mier. at punishing
the guilty—to expect a return to obedience
when the breach was I:ming widened day by
day, and the acrimony of rebellion increased
as the rebels gathered success from our lost
opportunities. It is rather cool to talk of lost
opportunities, and it is particularly cool for
those to indulge in that talk, who were the
very men to insist on a disregard of 'what they
complain as being now lost. Had the political
aspiration of those in command of the army,
never been excited by the 'Border State men,
the army of the Potomac would have betinin
Richmond six months since. Had rebellion
been fairly estimated—had its crimes been
treated as we treat other criminals—had more
hanging been done, when aimed traitors fell
into our hands, and had we had lessof the
folly and farce of swearing men to allegiance
whose conscience was devoted to the devil by
their acts of treason, we should not now be com
pelled to mourn the loss of opportunity. And
until this is done—until we learn to treat the
rebellion and the rebels as a monstrous crime
and as desperate criminals, opportunity will
continue to slip from the use of the army,
until national wealth, national, energy and
national valor are all lost or wasted:

or Friday Evening Benefit of A. J. TALBOTT
A ' you sick, feeble and complaining ? Are
you out of order, with your system de
ranged , and your feelings uncomfortable ? These
symptims are often the prelude to serious ill
ness. Some fit of sickness is creeping upon
you, and shouid he averted by a timely use of
the right remedy. Take Ayer's Pills, and
cleanse out the disordered humors—purify the
blood, and let the fluids move on unobntructed
in health again. They stimulate the functions
of the body into vigorous activity, purify the
system from the obstructions which niche dis
ease. A cold settles somewhere in the body,
and obstructs ha natural functions. These, if
not relieved, react upon themselves and the
surrounding organs, producing general aggrava
tion, suffering and disease. While in this con
dition, oppressed by the derangements, take
Ayer's Pills, and see how directly they restore
the natural action 6f the system, and with it
the buoyant feeling of health again. What is
true and so apparent in this trivial and' com
mon complaint; is also true in many of the
deep-seated and dangerous distempers. The
same purgative effect expels them. Caused by
similar obstructions and derangements of the
natural funotione of the body, they are rapidly
and many of them surely, cured by the same
means. None who know the virtues of these
Pills will neglect to employ them when suffer
ing from the disorders they cure, such as Head •
ache, Anil Stomach, Dysentery, Billions Cora
plaints, Indigestion, Derangement of the Liver,
Costiveness or Constipation. As a Dinuer Pill
,they are both agreeable and effectual.
