POLITICS AND OUR POLITICAL OPPO-
Since the inauguration of the present Chief
Magistrate of the United States, the great Re
publican party of this country has had two sub..
tie enemies with which to contend. Our first
and most malignant foes were and still are those
who now battle that they may destroy all that
is free and glorious in our present perfect system
of government. The southern rebel has always
been an enemy to the progress and development
of free hustitutions, whether the development
was made by the acquisition of new territory, or
by such legislation as, in their judgment, inter
fered with any of the franchises and prospects of
slavery. This legislation consisted of all at
tempts to advance the intercede of free white
labor. When these were made by any party,
the effort aroused the antagonism of the slave
holders of the south, and raised up a party in
that loca/ity , which voted unanimously against
such a policy. No better illustration of the truth
of this assertion need be adduced than that which
is contained in the .history of the great Whig
Duty, renowned alike for the patriotism of its
leaders andthe justice of its policies, but because
it proclaiined.steadily for the rights of white la
bor, and refused to recognise slavery as an ele
ment of control , in this government., it
invoked the bitter hatred of those who
deemed that institution, the, tine condition
of all labor, and was broken up by
the same influences, treachery 'and damnable
corruption which now seek the breaking up of
the Amesieen Union: The next foes were those
Who, in the north, sought to make this war a
purely political struggle. These men are the
natural allies of the traitors. Their part of the
game in the programme of rebellion was as well
understood as is that of the leading' and most
desperate assassins in-the revolt. First, when
defeat overtook a rotteri l Democratic organise
don, the slave-breeder had arranged to revolt,
and when rebellion • had gathered sufficient
strength, its old ally in the north was sworn to
cripple the legitimate government in all its ef
forte to suppress, rebellion, by charging on that
government's crusade, by denouncing its legal
efforts to enforce the law as coercion, by corrupt
ing the Executive Departmenta by means ot
espionage, and diminishing the power and in
fluence of both the army and the navy by re
signations, extravagances and theft. These in
fluences ; against whiell the Republican party
when in power Was &reed to contend, all grew
out of the old Democratic organization. First
sosealion w a s a naturali rttult of the compacts •
of Democracy, because those oempacis were all
for the benefit of slavery, and when they failed
of their purpode, slavery: refused longer to Abe
identified with a government it could not con
trol. And that failure dated from the defeat of
the Democratic party. When that organisation
lost power, slavery lost prestige—when the
Democratic party showed the .unmistakable
signs of decay, slavery • was forced to assume
some extraordinary position either, of belliger
ence or ass u rance, or yield to the force of its
own corruptions, and go : down with the Demo
cratic party into irretrievable min end disgrace.
And •it has assumed • that belligerence, while
these fonts constitute the condition of politics
when the Republicamparty smutted its rightful
constitutional rule in the government. That
government, in its hands, was, pledged by all,
honorable and sacred means, to be administered
in a spirit of truth and fairness, but the pledge
was repudiated, the terms of peace and justice
which were proclaimed in the inaugural, were
rejected—and even that which was proposed by
the people of the border states was trampled
into the dust, reviled and=-denounced by the
arch traitors who sat in ! that assemblage,. and
rebellion made`the latinVon Which the Union
was to be destroyed or preserved.
With such a condition of politics, the foes we
have before us have not.been diminished either
in number or power. They have rather gained
strength and savage barbarity, so that the war
which the Democratic party at first sought to
make a political crusade, has become a sec
tional assault of the slave owners of, the south
against the great free white laboring masses of
the north. It is no longer, a contest to hu
miliate the Republican party and force a Repub
lican President to resign. It is a regularly or
ganised and desperately detenWesed scheme to
crush out all.the inteligenoe and independence
of the free st des, force its labor into a servile
acknowledgment of slavery as its superior, and
make the federal government the machinery
for the propagation of that inititution through
out the entire Union. Any man who has ob
served the progress of this rebellion, will at ,
once admit that thin is its present object ; and •
any man who can fairly comprehend the nature
of cause and effect, will admit that this turn of
the rebellion is to ' be 'attributed alone to the
course of those :Democrats--in the north who
persist in giving aid and encouragement to
treason in the south. We make the assertion
boldly and fnuskly. If • the , north had been
united, when rebellion 'developed itself at
Charleston, it would have never:wand beyond
South Clarolina. And as the Democratic party
took issue with the federal adridnistration as to'
the means for its sappression, 'that partj is not
only responsible for the cause of this rebellion,
but it is alike responsible for all its present and
future, eftects upon the government of this
country. Stich, at least, is our , reasoning from
politics and our political opponents..

General M'Call's Reconnoissance to
LATEEN OF HON HOWLED IePHNBOON, R. 0., FROM
The writer of the following has requested its
publication in the columns of the TIISOILAPII.
His well known reputation as a man of strict
veracity and honor, gives to his statement a
force which needs no additional recommendation
at our hands :
HIADQUARTIBS MCCALL'S DIVISION, }
Camp Pierpont, (Langley,) Nov. 8,1861,
26 the Editor of the New York Tribune:
Gen. McCall's reconnoisance to Drainesville,
11 miles from this point, on •the Georgetown
and Leesburg turnpike, has been strangely mis
understood, its purpose misstated, and its re
sults misapprehended. This is due to several
causes, chief of which are its supposed connec.
don with the affair at Ball's Bluff, and the refer
ence to it made in the report of Brig. General
Stone. As the facts concerning it have not been
fully and correctly stated, and its relations to
the deplorable affair on the Upper Potomac are
not clearly comprehended, and tusgreat injustice
has thereby been done to the corps which made
the reconnoisance, and to its commanding Gen
eral, I deem it proper to call public attentionto
the actual state of the case—selecting as the
basis of remark portions of the criticism of
"G. W." in the Tribune of November 6, on
General Stone's movements.
The movement of Gen. McCall on Saturday,
Oct. 19, towards Drainesville was simply a re
connoissance, was so intended, at no time
changed its Character. Its purpose was to make
an accurate examination of the country between
Langley and Drainesville, and of that around
Drainesville within thre or four miles. The
whole force was a marching drill. One brigade
only advanced to Drainesville, and protected
that reconnoisance, the others bivouckg at fix
ed points on the road. Your correspondent
Says that Gen. McCall was instructed to advance
as far as Goose Creek if necessary for his "ob
servations." This is a mistake. No purpose
Was expressed, in any official quarter, of send
ing the division or any part of it, as far as
Goose Creek for "observations" or any other
object; nor was there mention or allusi.n to
such a contingency in his instructions. The
reconnoissancewas expressly limited to
Drainesville and its immediate vicinity, and had
no significance towards points beyond.
Another error is the statement that upon
reaching Drainesville Gen. McCall apprised
Gen. McClellan that "there were indications of
the enemy being in consider able numbers in the
direction of Leesburg." Nothing could be more
erroneous. Gen. McCall did not meet the ene
my between Langley and Drainesville, nor at.
Drainesville (thirteen miles from Leesburg) did
he discover any indications of the "presence , of
the enemy in considerable numbers at Lees
burg." He did not expect to do either. Before
leaving camp at Langley he was advised that
the enemy had retired from Leesburg ; and on
his arrival at Drainesville this information was
corroborated by the residents of the place and
vicinity, who stated that on the evening pre
vious (five days before) . Gen. Evans' brigade bad
Crossed Goose Creek on their way to Manassas.
Gen. McCall's dispatches to the Cornmanding
General were of a tenor wholly different from
that stated by your correspondent of November
6. They were to the effect that the enemy were
not supposed to be at Leesburg ; that the Lou
doun and Hampshire Railroad was probably the
line of the enemy's pickets in a southwesterly
direction, and that the nearest force of the ene
my was at Centreville, sixteen miles distant.
Whatever attempt may be made to censure any
one upon the assumption that. Gen. McCall
made any representation's different from those
above stated, will be in defiance of the feats.
t A third misapprehehaion of your oorrespondent
Of Nov. 6. is, that Gen. McCall's return to Wig
ley on Monday, October 21, was the consequence
Of a supposed "danger of a flank attack from
Centerville ; and that this order to return, in
reversal of a previously-entertained purpose,
was given at a late hour on the afternoon of
Sunday, the 20th. The original order of Gen.
McCall contemplated his return to .Langley on
Sunday, the 20th. This, however, proved in
compatible with the execution of the other por
tion of his order, to make a survey of the coun
try, its roads, declivities, Bic.; and he so inform
ed Gen. McClellan, who thereupon ordered him
to complete the survey and mum. on Monday.
At 6 o'clock on Monday morning Gen. McCall
was informed by the topographical engineers
that in two hours they would complete - their
work ; and Gen. McClellan, upon being so ad
flied, ordered him to return to Langley when
this was done. About 10 o'clock that morning
the Division took up the return line of march.
Of course, the apprehension of attack upon Cen
terville had nothing to do .with the return,
which was due solely to the fact that by that
time the reconnoissance required by his instruc
tions was completed, fully and satisfactorily.
Your correspondent treats of the two move
ments of (lens. McCall and Stone as one, and
speaks of "the division of McCall Owing from
the mac " while Stone "was grouping his forms
at Con rad's and Edwards' ferries.
Gen. McCall remained at Drainesville one
day longer than he expected when he entered
it. He left it only when ordered to do so, and
after the work appointed to him was fully done.
He knew nothing of Gen. Stone's movement or
.situation, nor did he hear of theta until many
hours after his return to Langley. Had the
division been aware of the collision between a
Part of Gen. Stone's command alai the enemy, I
know that nothing would have restrained them
from advancing to his support with alacrity and
My respect for a gallant and veteran officer
has led me to make these explanations concern
ing events with which my position in his - staff;
OS a volunteer aid, has made me fully familiar.
I feel assured that you will aid me in correct
ing the unintentional errors which do him in
justice, and reflect injuriously upon the brave
men composing his command.
' I have the honOr to be, very respectfully, your

preliminary survey of the route, which would
require one year, the whole line could be put np

Mr. Collins asks Congress to lend him two small
