Dbreathes the foe, but falls before us,
reedom's soil beutath our feet,
Freedom's banner stroliming o'er us.
nday Morning, April 7, 1862.
We made an allteion on Thursday to our party
Ince then, we perceive that other Republican
journals in different states are directing atten
tion to the same subject. Thus, the Springfield
(Ill.) Jourruil 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
neath the Republican bauner, 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 just in time to save the
government front overthrow, the country from
ruin, and republican liberty from extinction.—
The soul of Republicanism is, FazzoOm. Its
mission is to save free government from over
throg,preserve our.broad domain from division,
give larger liberty to 'mankind, and by crashing
lama and Suppiirtiag nailer, to show themorld
how sublime a thing a free nation can become.
The Republican/arty is young, pure, and faith
ful to the Constitution, the government and all'
the great tuterests of the country and ittimau
ity. The salvation of America depends upon
Republican success. If God, in His providence,
ever traced oneline more clearly than another,
it is that which declares that. America shall be
come a land of, freedom. (od has written this,

It plainly. The Democratio party is not to be
truited. parlyitiss'ed upbn slaveiy, and that
bows at every shrine of, wrong and evil that
votit'inayloliew fawning, shOuld be shinned
by every seativitii valies'lturnaki liberty. The
Democratic party of to-day is without one hon
orable principle; or ennobling 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 reform calculated to advance, elevate and
ennoble marikind,lhere is no doubt at all. It
was a grand'eld party once, when, with Jeffer

members of Congress, under the lead of that
semi-traitor Vallandigham,s unite in a call for a
National Convention of the party that betrayed
our country into the hands of the traitors of the
south. Republicans, loyal men, lovers of your
country and freedom, awake I organize, go to
work and ensure success. We call upon the
Republican prees and advocates of the whole
'country to 'unfurl the old Republican banner
and to stir up our friends to organization and
action. We must strengtheo the hands of our
noble, wise, patriotic,' liberty-loving President,
and give him the power to' carry out his plans
for the rescue of our country from the dangers
that environ it. Bally, rally, friends of free

One year ago we were tremblingly hanging
on the verge of rebellion, yet still in doubt
that there were any parties to 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 balk to their allegiance, and
the authority they had " forcibly renounced,
would be once more peaceably recognised. And
in this spirit the government` reated the rebels
so far as any deniOniitation 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 itillone feta
up in Forte 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 jr'etr this nation bee accomplished the
moat stupendous work of the age. Our re
sources were'unknOwn, and in many instances,
where developed, they were depreciated, and
the euperiority 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 was left - in
a dilemma stick as would have appalled ewer
dinary man. The other Departments of the
government, es it were, steed id le and demanded .
of the Department over which he presided, the
[ means and "the materiel With' which to •restore
the nation to peacts. -- • The' eyes of the nation
were directed to the War DePartixtentWhile the
head of that Depattment could - scarcely trust
a single officer of the regular army then in
Washington, from the simple fact that treason
first showed 'ltself with More effrontery In the
army and navy than in any other branch of the
government. OffiCerl Were 'resighlirg who had
passed their lives in idlenets; drawing the money
of the governmentior their support, while the
proud oapital of the nation was left defenceless,
beseeching tunic& arid'protection ftom 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 aohiwire
ment of immortal magnitude. 006 condition'
of affairs is pertain. "After we have conquered
t..he rebellion, put an end to its mischievous
jettionses t and re-eittablished - the fedenit an
thorny In all the',: snit:ea and teri l itorleit Of `the
17 1 nion, we will either have the world 'at . our
throats or our feet. Our war with traitors is
as likely to end in a war with foreign nations
as it is certain that foreign nations' hive . for
our • destruction, and are ready, at any time to
strike a blow to hurry on such a conclusion..
Let ns then look forward to another ' year
with hope and noble resolution to met every
other emergency that may arise as we met re
bellion. . With more' 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 worst
thing that can possibly happen for our jealous
neighbors over the waters, will be the 'termi
