THE CRLIf E OF DEFENDING THE UNION.
The Patriot does not relish the idea of having
public attention directed to its own treasonable
and mendacious course, and therefore again
beats the bush this morning, determined, if
p ssible, to create the impression that there is
a crime in the supposed fact that certain true
and respectable men have organized a society
having for its objects the vindication and pro- 1
tectiou of the American, Union. It fairly ex
plodes with rage at the mere suspicion of the
existence of such a society, and in order to sus
tain the utter ridiculousness of its assertion,
drags in the names of a number of respectable
public men, and with a falsehood as foul as any
that ev, r gave stench to its utterances, declares
that they are associated in secret league for
political purposes. There is no one in this com
munity more impressed with the fact, than the
Patriot itself, that its lies always pass for what
they are worth, and that they are never calcu
lated to do any other injury than the damage
they are likely to do the souls of those who
concoct and give them publicity. Still it is our
duty to point out these falsehoods as they are
cast at the feet of tee people, if for no other
purpose than to hasten the inevitable doom of
the parties for whose benefit the lies are pub
lished. We have done it in this instance the
more cheerfully, because we believed that while
we were exposing a malignant misrepresents
ton by the Patriot, we would also be dragging
before the public the share of guilt which
attaches to the peoph about that concern as
participants in the traitorous and damnable
league of the Knights of the Golden Circle, and we
have succeeded so far as to pin the Patriot to
the wall, where it writhes in the agony of its
guilt, and in vain tries to escape the indignant
power of public condemnation, by its own pe
culiar and specious cry of " stop thief." Let it
howl on, and falsify and imprecate until it
crack its lungs and its nerves. Still there can
be no excuse for its political rascality—no
hiding place to escape its share of the responsi
bitity inclined by the impious oaths adminis
tered in the league of the Knights of the Golden
We repeat again, that we have never belonged
to any secret oath bound society. We repeat
too, that the assertion of the Patriot on the sub
ject of a Union league, such as it seeks to fasten
on the Republican otganizatiou, is nothing
more than the invention of its own corrupt
fdara. Aud we repeat, too, that the Union
league which the traitor sympathisers of the
Patriot fear, is that which is entered into at every
loyal hearth and participated in by every loyal
man in the land. Of this fact, the traitors of
the Patriot are well aware, none the less because
they know that they have been engaged iu the
plot which is now developing in the slave states,
as members of the Knights of the Gulden Circle,
and because they fear that this supposed union
league has for its object the ferreting out and
condign punishment of themselves and their
own . associates in crime and treason.—
They therefore seek to make, every, effort
in behalf of the Union a crime. They were
among those who declared that armed
force to sul,ress rebellion was coercive and
illegal—that the rights of a state gave it
power to resist the authority of the nation—
and that the traitors in all their positions had
justice for their approval and equity for their
incentives. In the same spirit the same men
attack the efforts of Union men to defend that
Union. All is obnoxious which points to the
eru-ping out of rebellion. All is henious and
off.-nshe to these modern Iscariots which is
pledged to the punishment of traitors. It is so
in the estimation of the Patriot, because its up
holders are pledged to the support of the rebel
lion, if not in openly taking up alms, at least
in giving it all the aid and power they can
command and wield.
We again declare, that the Patriot has other
objects in view than the exposure of a secret
society for political purposes, by charging
that there is a legue forming in this city, based
on the determination to defend the Union. Its
objects are as we have stated. Its editors and
proprietors and backers were and no doubt still
are the active upholders and participators
in the proceedings of the Knights of the Golden
Circle. These men supported John C. Breckin
ridge, because he was a member of that society.
They clung to his fortunes until a hempen hal
ter frirlitened them from his support ; they
defended the cause of the same men, until an
angry mob threatened them with destruction ;
and now, true to their instincts and their rea
son, they still persist in that base support, at
tacking what they believe or what they suspect
to be a movement iu defence of the Union. The
people of this community did not need this last
ect on the p rt of the Patriot to convince them of
its treasonable designs. It only serves to prove
how desperate men can become, when they
have seated themselves in crime with horrid
oaths, and when their political prejudices lead
them to antagonize their country, its Constitu
tion and its laws.
A GUERILLA WAR
The results of a few days, and the present
condition of the rebel forces, leave no doubt of
the future manner in which the war will be
conducted so far as the rebels themselves are
concerned. They cannot now possibly make
any show of a well organized force in auy sec
tion of the country, and however they may
manage for a little while to keep up a sort of
stragetical reputation for their armies, the war
in which they are now engaged will soon be
come of that description of attack and defence,
which render the operations of trained bands
of robbers and assassins so revolting to the
sight and estimation of brave men. As two
and two makes four, so is this end of the re
bellion arrived at, as the result of the most tits
perate and despicable scheme that was ever de
vised by demagogue or traitor. There is noth
ing in the entire result, so far, but what any
shrewd observer of events could have predict
ed, because the very , inception of the rebellion
was a fraud, calculated at the time to deceive
the people of the south into a struggle solely
to advance the interests and ambition of a
class. The dream of the leaders was the reali
zation of power, not to redeem their section
from any oppression or vindicate and insure
their southern fellow citizens in a single right.
It was for the realization of a power which
would elevate one class over another, and for
ever establish 'distinction in the south such as
now divides the masses and the favorite classes
The condition of the rebellion is now like
unto the operations of a mob, wildly bent on
mischief, with no leader but the passions of those
who compose it, and no objects but the pres
ent gratification of revenge. The throne which
Jeff Davis dreamed off, has become in his
vision, a scaffold. The empire which be had
created in his imagination and peopled with
the imbecile subjects he was to rule, now lies
before him, a barren waste, filled with despe
rate assassins and made sanguinary with fratra
cidal blood. The palace that was to hold the
Davis royalty, has become a cave in the forest,
where the arch traitor shrinks in terror from
the tumult he has aroused, and where be is
scarcely safe, for when no other hand will drive
the blade to rid the world of his monstrous
presence, his own will be impelled to plunge
the suicide's steel to his traitor heart, to end in
remorse the life he had devoted to rebellion.
Nor will the fate of Davis stop in its bloody
suicide with his life. It will be dealt out by
the same mad impulse on all who were leaders
in this rebellion. From a war that they sought
to dignify into a struggle for political indepen
dence, their contests will become as unholy and
desperate as that of any common mob. They
assume that shape already. Their armies are
demoralized—their leaders have become weary
of their work, and thus this mighty revolution
of a class to vindicate and elevate slavery, has
in reality become nothing more than the wild
assaults of a gang of assassins. The blade that
the rebels had sharpened for the throats of the
people of the north, they now use on the necks
of the people of the south. The torches they
had prepared for the free dwellings of the
northern states, are now applied to the cities
and towns in the south. Truly rebellion is
visiting itself with the destruction it had pre
pared for others.
Gov. ANDY &rumor", of Tennessee, has sent
an agent to Ohio, for the purpose of adminis
tering the oath of allegiance to the rebel
prisoners confined in the capital of that state.
These prisoners were all taken with arms in
their hands, arrayed in battle, ready and anx
ious to interrupt the march, or as , assinate the
loyal troops they might encounter. An oath
of allegiance would not be considered a hazard
ous mea❑s of escape for such wretches, and
we would as soon accept their oath as the affir
mations of their friends and allies in the
north, who so zealouslysupported Breckinridge
for the Presidency, and for whom such journals
as the Patriot, delight still to conceal their
sympathy. We repeat that these prisoners
were taken with arms in their hands warring
against the time institutions of the
land, and now when they find that their miser
able fabric was bgilt upon a rotten foundation,
they are allowed to go forth by swearing to
abide by the Constitution, and become peace
ful and quiet citizens. We doubt the policy
and the safety of the practice thus proposed,
and consider the taking of as oath of allgiance
on the part of a captured rebel as mocking
Heaven and insulting the nation.
IN THE BATrus of the American war hitherto
have excited little attention abroad, the contest
between the Merrimac and Monitor will form
an exception. Every English paper received
by the late arrivals devotes a column or more
of description and comment to that extraordi
nary engagement. Even the skeptical London
Tines admits that it has worked a complete
change in the aspects of naval warfare ; and
the other journals, following suit, discuss with
unseal earnestness its bearing upon the future
of the European navies. It seems to be admit
ted that, as the first suggestion of iroc clad
vessels came from the United States, so the
first example of their efficiency was given by
by the United States. Hampton Roads are now
regarded with as much eagerness in Europe as
they are in America.
WILL some one of the many casuists inform
us how many slaves the abolitionists ever set
free ? And this being answered, can they suc
cessfully r eny that all the slaves set free since
the beginning of the war, have been released
by the mad attacks of their owners upon a gen
erous and indulgent government? Let those
who are in such deep despair as to the remedy
for the increase of free blinks be jest and frank
enough to see and admit the cause of this in
