Saturday Afternoon, April 5, 1862.
We made an allusion on Thursday to our party.
Since then, we priceive that other Republican
journals in states are directing atten
tion to the same subject. Thus, the Springfield
(Ill.) Journal declares that at the late Presiden
tial election Republican principles carried the
Republican party into power. We agree en
tirely with the Journal, because the good, and
true and pure men of the country rallied be.
'teeth the Republican banner, and planted it tri
umphantly over the capitol of the Union. De
mocracy, all covered with pro-slavery filth,
black with treason and rotten with corruption,
was hurled from power jut in time to save the
government from overthrow, the country from
ruin, and republican liberty from extinction.—
The soul of Republicanism is, Fannon. Its
mission is to save free government from over
th row, preserve our broad domain from division,
give larger liberty to mankind, and by crushing
molt and supporting atone, to show the world
how sublime a thing a free nation can become.
The Republican.-party is young, pure, and faith
ful to the Constitution, the government and all
the great iutereats of the country and human
ity. The salvation of America depends upon
Republican success. If God, in His providence,
ever traced one line more clearly than another,
it is that which declares that America shall be
come a land of freedom. God has written this,
and he who looks into the hearts of the people
and gives attention to paising events can read
it plainly. The Democratic party is not to be
trusted. A party based upon slavery, and that
bows at every shrine of wrong and evil that
vott I may follow fawning, should be shunned
by every man who values human liberty. The
Democratic party of to-day is without one hon
orable principle or ennobting idea. Its loyalty
to the government is a question in which doubt
largely overbalances hope, while of its devotion
to slavery and other evils, and of its opposition
to reforms calculated to advance, elevate and
encohle'tnefiliiht:i„there is AO doubt: at all,.
was a grand old party once, when, with Jeffer
sonsaitalreed, It stood up for freedom and for
right. But it has fallen. It symbolizes a Chris
tian, whose soul wad once illuminated by the
smile of God, b o at who now, fallen, rejoices in
the approVing grin of the Devil. No good can
clam out of it. The hope of the nation is in
Republican success. When civil war burst
upon our land Democracy made office a basis
for loyalty, and Republicanism, with its great
heart glowing with the fires of patriotism,
abandoned its organization and voted for any
Democrat who could plainly pronounce the
word ~ ..trA i oN.- This was a
. patriotic,, but an
unwise move on our part. Now we call upon
the Republician party to retrieve the error. Or
ganize anew.' In every county, town and neigh
borhood, organise and - unloose to the breeze
that symbol 'of , loyalty, freedom and progress,
the Reptiblldan banner. Rally beneath it, and
battle as . Of old for everythiog dear to freemen.
Republicans be up and doing. Despotion is
ever watchful for advantage. Democracy, so
recently defeated, stained with treason and rot
tenwithixorruption,is notyet dead. It betrays its
existence in Washington, where the Democratic
members of Congress, under the lead of that
semi-traitor Vallandigham, unite in a call'for a
National Convention of the party that betrayed
our country into the bands of the traitors of the
south. Republicans, loyal men, lovers of your
country and freedom, awake ! organize, go to
work and ensure success. We call upon the
Republican press and advocates of the whole
countr7 to unfurl the old Republican banner
and to stir up our friends to organization and
action. We must strengthen the hands of our
noble, wise, patriotic, liberty-loving President,
and give him the power to carry out his plane
for the rescue of our country from the dangers
that ear/iron it. Rally, rally, friends of free
dom and progress! organize, organize, and see
to it that in the election of October the'illepuh
limn banner waves over the prostrate foe of
freedom, progress, humanity and our country.
The progress of the rebels toward barbarism
is evinced in more ways than one. Not satis
fied with enlisting savages in their ranks, and
scalping their fallen enemies, they are deter
mined to drive every vestige of civilization from
their presence. The Marshall (Texan) Republican
of a late date, has the following:
How would type metal answer, mixed with
an equal quantity of lead f Our opinion is
that is would answer every urpose. If so,
there is any quantity of old rye in New Orleans
and elsewhere, and when that is exhausted, let
us take the new. It could not be devoted to a
better purpose than shooting at the Yankees.
Education and a spread of general intelli
gence are irduwical to the designs of the Con
federate leaders. The intellectual advance.
next of the north is 'what first led them to
read in the promise of events the certain down
fall of the hateful tyranny which they estab
limbed during the two last administrations, and
they wish to eradicate every vestige of northern
institutions. Just at present, too, the south
has no need of newspapers. There is no cheer
ing news to, communicate, and that which is
calculated to depreds had better not 'be circu
lated. The conversion of types into bullets,
would be an act An.perfict consonance with
rebel'aivillotion• *-
One year ago we were tremblingly hanging
on the verge of rebedion, yet still is d ,übt
that there were any parties ro desperate as to
seriously contemplate the dismemberment of
the American Union. The secession of South
Carolina and her sister rebel states had in a
manner demonstrated the determined purpose
of the traitors, and yet the loyal free states
were filled by men who persisted in urging
that such acts of secession were not the result
of any sincere deliberation on the part of the
rebels, and that if the government would act
discretly and wisely, the states thus in revolt
would be brought back to their allegiance, and
the authority they had forcibly renounced,
would be once more peaceably recognised. And
in this spirit the government treated the rebels
so far as any demonstation was concerned. Its
authority was asserted, but not enforced, be
cause the enforcement might aggravate instead
of allay rebellion, and thereby a band of
brave men were exposed to the fire of a gang
of rebels, and the national honor so long pent
up in Fotts Moultrie and Sumter, was at last
violated by the most dastardly attack that ever
was made on any military force in the history
of the world.
In one year this nation hatraccomplished the
most stupendous work of the age. Oar re
sources were unknown, and in many instances,
where developed, they were 'depreciated, and
the superiority of the south extolled by the
very men from whom the government and the
loyal states had a right to expect other conduct
and speeches. One year ago, the then Secre
tary of War,
.Gen. Simon Cameron, was left in
a dilemma such as would have appalled an or
dinary man. The other Departments of the
government, as it were, stood idle and demanded
of the Department over which he presided, the .
means and the material with which to restore
the nation to peace. The eyes of the nation
were directed to the War Department while the
head of that Department could ectucely trust
a single officer of the regular army then in
Washington, from the simple fact that treason
first showed Itself with more effrontery in the
army and navy than in any other branch of the
government. Officers were resigning who had
passed their lives in idlenes, drawing the money
of the government for their support, while the
proud capital of the nation was left defenceless,
beseeching succor and protection from the lib
erality, and promptness of the War Department.
The experience of another year, if it main
tain a like character of the year that is past,
will place this government in a very strong
position before the nations of the world. In
one year we recruited, armed and disciplined
an army of six hundred thousand men. In one
year we counteracted the labors of the ablest
and shrewdest villains in the world, as they
contemplated the destruction of this govern
ment. There never has been anything to equal
it in the past, and there never will be anything
to compare to it in the future, unless we excel
the past in the coming year, by an achieve..
went of intunartal, .-inagialtdde. One condition
of affairs is certain.' We have ccinqUered
the rebellion, put an end to its mischievous
jealouses, and re-established the federal au
thority in all the states and territories of the
Union, we will either have the world at our
throats er our feet. Our war with traitors is
as likely to end in war with foreign nations
as it is certain that foreign nations hope for
our destruction, and are ready at any time to
strike a blow to hurry; on such a conclusion :
Let tis 'then look forward to another year
with hope and noble resolution to met every
other emergency, that may arise as we met re
hellion. With mote than a half a million of
well-trained, hardy and intelligent 'fighting
men in the field ; with a navy that is daily
growing: in force and effectiveness, the wait
thing that can possibly happen for our jealous
neighbors over the waters, will be the termi
nation of this rebellion. Let those who doubt
this, wait a year, and then - expose our sophis
tries if the assertion proves false. .
A Decamp Nissans.—The fire-eating seceders
believed, without doubt, that the general gov
ernment wag powerless to put down the rebel
lion. Through Floyd, Cobb, Thompson and
Toney,, they had done all they could to make
it impotent, and they fancied they had suc
ceeded. It was under this mistake that the
confederates undettook more than theyhad
power to aclileve--the federal government was
Had Mr. Lincoln been lees resolute than he
was, their chances would have been better.
Had their revolutionary plot succeeded in the
as-assination of Mr. Linooln on his way to the
capital, and the seizure of the treasury end
4 rohives of the government, their cherished
enterprise would have been half achieved on
the 4th of March, 1861. If those in the North
who had pledged , their aid, had been as able
as they were willing to redeem those pledges,
the rebellion might have attained at least a
temporary triumph.
How they regarded the ability of the federal
government, ratty be seen in the following pas
sage from the Charleston Mercury, a little more
than a year ago:
"The coercive power of the federal govern
ment, so long vaunted as, adequate to suppress
the secession of a State, is rapidly proving it
self to be—what it has icing been supposed and
said to be—a wretched humbug—a scarecrow—a
dirty bundle of red rags and odd clothes!'
Tam Datswamm Cowry ADVIIRTIBER, in re
ferring to the late rejection of Capt. H. Jones
Brooke, the indefatigable and incorruptible
United States Commissary at this point, uses
the following language
We are acquainted with some of the "pecu
liar circumstances" of the case which , we with
hold for the present in deference to the wishes
bf those interested, and in conclusion have but
to say, that a state of corruption unparalleled
must exist, when such a man is liable to prose
eneon for firmly standing between the govern-
ment and the vile robbers and scoundrels who
would plunder it.
We trust that the Advertiser will not with
hold those "peculiar circumstances" entirely
rpm the public. Captain Brooke has been
oonfirmed, and therefore the country has a
right to know by what system of Vag he was
at Bret !mailed and' rejected: "Let jOice be
d9aft, though the liwen'is do. fell."

BANK Bar..—After a lengthy and tedious dis
cussion yesterday in the House of Represen

We presume however that it will hardly pass
the Senate in its present shape. From a care
ful examination it will be observed that the

payments, as those notes are now rating at par
