Friday Afternoon, January 31, 1862,
One of the pretexts which has been used by
the northern dough-faces for many years, to
impede and interrupt the dissemination of a
just sentiment on the subject of negro slavery,
is, that all men who oppose slavery are aboli
tionists, emancipationists or fanatics. They
allege that the northern opponent of slavery is
in favor of the immediate emancipation of the
slaves of the south, a measure which no man,
however blindly he may be in favor of aboli
tionism, cin fail to discover, would result in
disaster to all sections of the country, simply
because the sudden change and disrupture of
society which would follow such a moveirent,
must drag down with it forms and principles
now essential to the permanency of the Union.
In this war, particularly, those who are opposed
to slavery, are bitterly denounced as abolition
ists by those who have no other means of show
ing their sympathies for traitors.
The abolitionism which has taken hold of
the public heart and animates the army, is that
which contemplates the disfranchisement of
slavery. Republican principles deny the right
of any class - of men in a Republican form of
government to exercise or wield privileges and
power which prejudice any interest or principle
relating to other citizens of that Republic. In
its political bearing and influence, no man will
attempt to deny that this has been the tendency
of slavery, at least so far as its enfranchisement
is concerned, because the power thus vested in
the hands of a few men in the south, outb al
arming and overshadowing the same number of
free white men in the north, has led to the ar
rogance of the slave driver, the engendering
of an aristocracy, and the rebellion which they
now wage to usurp all the authority of the fed
eral government. When we abolish the fran
chises of slaVery, we will have achieved a po
litical victory which will shorten the road to
the moral, individual and social amelioration of
slavery. It is the fear of this disfranchisement
that has aroused the slave-holder of the south
to the realization of his political dangers. It
is not the mere loss financially in the institu
tion which has caused rebellion, but the fact
that slavery is bound to loose its prestige in
political power.
A person who was present at the battle of
Buena Vista, and afterward wrote a description
of it, said that when the American and Mexi
can armies were drummed up face to face in
battle array, and before the fighting had com
menced, Gen. Taylor rode slowly along in front
of his men, saying some encouraging word to
each company as he passed it. "Old. Rough
and Ready" sat carelessly on his horse, with
One foot in the stirrup and the other leg hang
ing over the saddle on the same side, and as he
passed the spot where the writer was., standing
he said: "The bayonet, my hardy cocks, the
bayonet is the thing." Secretary Stanton's re
cent general order shows that he holds this
weapon in equal esteem. "In the prompt and
spirited movements and daring at the battle of
Mill Springs," he says, with stirring eloquence,
"the nation will realize its hopes, and the
people of the United States will rejoice to honor
every soldier add officer who proves his courage
by charging with the bayonet and storming entrench
ments, or in the blaze of the enemy's fire."
There cm be no doubt that determined
charges with the bayonet are the highest feats
of personal daring, and the best proof that sol
diers can give of their bravery. When their
courage is equal to this, it is equal to any 'de
mands that can be made upon it. The stirring
appeal of the new Secretary will make thous
ands of our brave fellows eager for oppor
tunities to distinguish themselves in this way.
ENGLAND IS SATISFIED ! Satisfied with what?
This is a grave question, full of meaning, but
as the English press and their American coteni
poraries join in the cry that England is satisfied,
we must accept the assurance as the certainty
of peace, until England again becomes dissatis
fied, Which will be the moment her rapacious
and jealous ministers of state imagine that
they have found another pretext on which to
base some preposterous claim or arrogant de
mand on this government, then they will
only be satisfied, and through them the satisfac
tion of the English people, established by another
ovsnohelminy argument L W' the federal administration.
la the Trent affair, the British government
were determined to be dissatisfied—resolved, if
possible, to provoke a war with the American
States, but failing in this, and discovering
that the claim they had made was- the recogni
tion of a policy this government bad long in
sisted upon and advocated, the British aristoc
racy were glad to escape the dilema and the
shame which their own inconsistency had
brought upon them in the eyes of the world,
by asserting a satisfaction which is as hypo
critical as all their former profeisions of friend
ship for the Repeblic of the West
BALLACK. has ordered the execution of
seven bridge burners, after having been con
victed of the offence. This is the [doper man
ner to deal with such traitorous imadiaries.
The alliance which is generally formed by
treaty, is as generally of very little force, effect
or importance, because nations have little re
gard for their word when selfish wisdom inter
poses to tempt them to do wrong. Very few
treaties that have been formed, since diplomacy
combined the art of lying in order to deceive,
but have been violated or disregarded, when
it suited the purpose of the nation thus derelict;
or when it had the power to outrage interna
tional law at its command. The British gov
ernment, for instance, has indulged in more
diplomatic covenant of peace and comity than
any other nation in the world ; and yet the
enormity of its violations of these compacts,
has more than once filled mankind with shame
and the world with indignation. England is
ever prompt to plight its faith when prosperity
promises to greet its progress ; but the moment
profit and gain vanish from its vision, its
potentates and ministers forgot their pledges,
deny their covenants, and abrogate their com
pacts. The shores of every ocean and sea in the
Universe attest the outrages of these violations
—bleeding India has proven them in her sighs
and groans—tortured China illustrates them
in her opium victims —while, wherever weak
ness bad an interest or a resource, or ignorance
the possession of a territory which excited the
cupidity of Great Britain, in that dire& ion its
diplomats directed their arts and their cunning,.
until they could procure a treaty of alliance,
which English hypocricy at once violated, while
British force and arms insisted on their viola
tion at the expense of the lives and the
property of the innocent and defenceless.
We believe that the government of the Uni
ted States has never by treaty, entered into an
understanding of alliance for offensive and de
fensive operations with any nation in the world.
Our means of information now does not afford
us the intelligence to be positive on this point,
and yet we feel certain that, with the exception
of the alliance with France during the war of
the revolution, the government of the United
States has stood aloof from treaties of alliance
for belligerent purpo- , es with any nation in the
world. Observation taught our rulers that such
written understandings were as useless as ropes
of sand. And yet we have an ally—a bold,
powerful, and almost invincible ally—advoca
ting and maintaining principles directly the op
posite and the extreme of our own system of
government—with a people scarcely possessing
an interest in common with our own—with
laws that admit of no appeal and a monarch
who is absolute—we still possess the unwritten
alliance in the sympathies, the prayers and the
admonitions of RUSSIA.
During the late embarrassing condition of
our relations with England, when the rotten
aristocracies of the world regarded our position
with a sneer and replied to our arguments with
a scoff, the Russian government simply intima
ted to the administration at Washington a lins
of policy which after developments proved to
have been a singular and happy acquiescene in
the very policy which President Lincoln had
adopted In the Trent issue. Russia, unlike its
neighboring dynasties, bad no worn or sytn puny
or encouragement for Great Britain. DesPising
all dissimulation, and contenting himself with
the utterance of a friendly word for the people
and the proffer of a dignified advice to the gov
ernment of the United States, the Russian Empe
ror was willing to trust to the judgment of the
American people with a confidence that proves
that he has regard for our welfare as well as
solicitude for our progress and destiny. These
facts must never be forgotten by the American
government and people ; and however different
the impulses and the interests of the two na
tions, and distinctive and widely separated
their policies of government, henceforth Russia
and the United States are bound in an alliance
more endurable than any which the nations of
the world have heretofore attempted to preserve
on parchment This alliance will be shown in
acts of friendly reciprocity, instead of the empty
compliments of hollow-hearted diplomacy, and
as the governments of the two countries are
thus drawn into more intimate relations of reci
procity and recognition, and the people respect
ively begin to understand the immense resources
at their command, with the vast interests which
their labor represents, the world will yet be
held in abeyance by this moral alliance of Rus
sia and the United States, and through the influ
ence of the extreme policy carried forward by
each, much good must certainly accrue to man
kind. Henceff rtn, too, will it become the du
ty of this government to make our ministerial
representative at the imperial court of the Czar
not merely the embodiment of a formal and
immaterial. interest, but the representative of
our material wealth, our power of resource and
production, our triumphs in the field and on
the ocean, and our moral as well as physical
ability to lead where'science points the way or
energy and enterprise are ready to be crowned
by the most honorable achievements of nations.
Timex Ramon OF Dommts are daily ex
pended by this government to maintain ita
military organization. Three millions of dol.
lars! And for what purpose is this expense
incurred? Is it to drive from our shores a
foreign foe ? No ! Ls it to put down the savage
Indians rushing on our defenceless border ?
No ! lb it to advance civilization and religion?
No. Well may the world then demand to know
the object for which this immense treasure is
expended. And well may we answer that it is
to prevent a few thousand slaveholders from
destroying this government. It is to put an
end to the rebellion of the , 2e slaveholders,
backed and aggravated by the misrepresenta
tion of our government by a clique of corrupt
politicians, that the national authorities are
compelled to spend three millionsof dollars
every twenty-four hours. All for slavery— all
to prevent the minions of slavery from usurping
the rights of freemen.
Tam PNELADErmiIe ha:graze, is in error when
it states that Col. Ruff had mustered in -the

ing of these men was princip illy performed in
this city and in Pittsburg, by Captains Simmons,
Hastings and Dodge, while' the number mus
tered in Philadelphia by Col. Ruff did not ex
ceed ten thousand men. This statement we
consider due to the energy of three of the most
gallant captains in the regular service,
