IN WHOM SHOULD WE TRUSTY
We make no pretensions to piety—perhaps
it were better for us and all other men honestly
to do so—and yet in watching the progress and
noting the events of the war in which we are
involved, we are often irresistably constrained
to ask ourselves, For what purpose has God
allowed this struggle to be precipitated ?
Surely He, and He alone knows the motives of
men in thus rushing to each other's slaughter.
If we are battling only for the pure principles
of Liberty, for the safety of a government
founded on the Christian principle of civil and
religious freedom, why does God allow the strife to
continue 2 And here we must par-e, in awe of
the majesty invoked, and in fear lxifure that
Power which truth teaches us has been so grie
viously outraged and insulted by this nation.
We believe that God instituted this war as well
for the punishment of those who have devo
ted themselves to the enslavement of a race, as
for the chastisement of those who claim free
dom as their peculiar characteristic and heri
tage. We believe that the war will never be
ended until God's ti uth end His laws have been
triumphantly vindicated. We must believe
this or deny that there is a God. We must
believe that He who marks,a sparrow's fall, also
takes some notice of the slaughter of thou
sands of human beings, all with immortal
souls dependent for salvation on their ac
tions. If this be so, and that it is, reason pro
claims from all her standpoints, the nation must
change its course, or God will change the na
tion. We may place our hopes in armies, but
they will perish before the hope is formed or
expressed. We may look to favorite leaders for
victory—but our anticipation and confident will
curse us with disappointment. We may form
plans that will astonish the brightest intellects,
and win the admiration of the world by gaining
success, but in an evilhour all these will fail us,
and we will awake to find how poor we are as a na
ion and how utterly miserable is our condi
tion as a people. Then the crushing truth may
come back upon us that we have forgotten God
that we had depended too much upon our own
strength and valor and prowess—but th-n,
alb it may be too late.
matters little to us what others may ex
claim when reading such appeals as these in a
political journal. We feel the importance of what
we write, and that is sufficient for our justification
and present purpose. If the people do not trust
mole in God—if our battles are not made more
a struggle for the great principles of free gov
ernment that are involved in the crisis—we
have no right to look for victory. And if we
do not look to God for support and assistance,
and so shape our course as to meet His approval,
we will never succeed. But, ales, how is this
to be accomplished ? Not, certainly, by news
paper at tides. Nor even by the persuasions of
the pulpit. If the virtue is not in the people—
if our rulers and leaders do not feel the neces
sity of virtue, of temperance, of reltince on
God as it is joined to noble and disinterested
efforts for the success of a glorious cause—we
must continue to suffer, to bear the scourge, to
totter beneath the burden, and perhaps at last
fall to utter disgrace and destruction. Fairer
Republics than that represented by our own
environed government, have perished because
their people ceased to remember God. As we
practise the same ingratitute, we have no right
to hope for exemption from the same fate. We
may devote our valor and pledge our patriotism
—we may elevate men on our applause—recruit
armies and offer them BP sacrifices on the altar
of war. Bet all this will be wades. It will
not count as an offset to our forgetfulness of
God with as much importance as a single grain
in the enumeration of the sand on the sea
shore. If there is a God, He must be recog
nised, relied upon and respeced in the great
struggle in which the freemen of the land are
now encountered. When will the nation learn
this' truth I
Twa QUICKEST WAY of ending a war is to fight
at once, with the utmost vigor. More lives are
lost in slow campaigns than are lost in despe
rate encounters. The issues to be decided are
Sooner decided, and the nation, whose depths
are stirred by the tempest, returns more speedi
ly to peace when actuated by promptness and
vigor. It Mr. Lincoln had called for five
hundred thousand men when he called for only
seventy-five thousand ; if the army of the Po
tomac had marched upon Richmond a year ago:
if our generals had smitten the rebels, not with
the fiat of their swords as mere estranged and
wayward sisters, but with the point of the blade,
as deadly and infernal enemies ; if our earlier
successes in Virginia, Kentucky, Tennessee and
Bondi Carolina had been followed up with the
vigor with which they were begun, fewer men
would have lost their lives, less property would
have been destroyed, and the rebellion would
be much nearer its termination than it now is.
Delay has not propitiated the good will of the
rebels in the least, while it has inflamed their
hostility and encouraged their arrogance. The
Yankees, they have said, do not strike because
they are afraid.
What Is more: if there had been the neces
sary vigor and rapidity of movement in the
outset, no political opposition to the govern
ment would have been organized at the North.
The atrength of that opposition now does not
lie in , itself, does not consist in the appeals
which its leaders are able to make to the popu
lar reason or popular passion, bnt.in the feeling
of discouragement and despondency which has
been allowed to seize the public mind. No man
of sense can suppose for a moment that all this
idle talk about the suspension of the habeas
carpus, about the despotism of the President, or
about the impolicy of the emancipation decree,
has the least influence on a people so intelli
gent as the American people. A few credulous,
ignorant, blind followers of party may be de
ceived by it ; but the great majority know their
liberties are in no danger from the government,
and that the rights of every loyal man are as se•
cure under Lincoln as they were under Jefferson
and Jackson. It is the inactivity of our armies
which has disheartened and turned the peo
ple ; and it will be well for our cause if this
inactivity does not dishearten our armies dur
ing the dreary winter that is now surrounding
us with its bleakness. Action is the life of
every cause. It is what has enabled the rebels
to prolong this - war. Without it, their armies
would have melted way. Without it, some of
our best men have been destroyed and the
cause of the country so seriously imperilled.
Of this lack of action, our political foes have
taken advantage. God grant that our other
foes do not take a like advantage !
OOMPRO:MISE OUT OF 711 E QUESTION.
The delusion, which existed to an extent sof : -
ficient to decide several recent Northern elec
tions, that the rebellion would be voluntarily
given up, if the Republicans were voted out of
political power,will be soon dissipated by events .
The rebels, instead of being propiti ded, will be
emboldened, and peace, except upon the shame
ful basis of recognizing their independence, will
require greater military efforts than before.
The Richmond Whig, of the 30 - h of October ;
after noticing speeches of Messrs. Seymour and
Van Buren, in which the people of New York
are told that, if they would only vote the Dem
ocratic ticket, the rebellion would be quietly
yielded, scouts and spurns the idea In the follow
ing language :
"No, the people of all shades of opinion, in
the United States, had better make up their
minds that the separation that has taken place
was necessary, and is final. We are as wid4
apart as the zenith and nadir. We are as differ+
ent as white from black—as antagonistic as fire
and water. They can never conquer, nor coax,
nor cheat us into reunion. The sooner they
surrender that hope and abandon that effort the
better for them. We, think no better of the
proposition when coming from 'conservatives'
than when coming from 'radicals.' "
—This renders the falsity of the plea of peace,
so lavishly used by the opponents of the admin
istration, entirely abortive. In the election
that is just passed, the argument of every Dem
ocratic Congressional candidate, promised a
speedy peace, in the event of his triumph. There
was not a vote given tor a Democrat in this
state, that did not have breathed in it. the hope
that this war would be brought to a close by
other means than those of fighting it out fairly,
and this fact the south understood before the
votes were even cast. No man need tell Ili
that the rebel leaders south and the leaders of
the sympathisers north had no understanding
on this subject. In fact the understanding with
airebel leaders and their northern friends wad
in . n more explicit than the understanding be
tween such men as Hughes, Ingersoll, Ancona,
the controllers of the Patriot and those whom
they duped. While these poor dupes hoped for
peace by a compromise, they did not for a moment
believe that such a peace could be accomplished
only by the recognition of the Confederacy.
They thought of, and were promised a peace with
the restoration of the Union. The deception is
now, however, becoming apparent, and the
veil once removed from the eyes of the North
ern people who were seduced into the support
of men who prom's.. d this speedy peace, they
will discover that the peace to be offered M-
I volves a devastation and a disgrace more fatal
than any which the worst forms of war could'
As soon as the south learns fully to compre
hend the advantage which is to' be derived
from the late elections in the free states, HAS
moment will the terms of peace be made hu=
miliating to the people of the north. As soon,
as Europe, too, receives intelligence of the same,
result, recognition will not hem) finely discussed'
among the governments of the old world.
Then, while forcing peace between the Federal
and the Confederate power, the Federal power
may be also forced into a war with some of the
governments of Europe. Then we will be able
to comprehend the full facts and influences of
Democratic triumphs. And then, too, mod
ern Democracy will have achieved its greatest
"IN ma BANKS ON TAN For."—Mrs. Brown
ing's beautiful poem on the Italian boy found
dead in the ranks and wearing the uniform of
the Austrian soldiery, which has been happily
adapted to a supposed similar instance in our
country, has recently been realized in real life
in Virginia. A case has come to our knowledge
of a youth who fell wounded in the rebel ranks
at Antietam, and died at Hoffman's farm, near
the battle field, on the 17th. His name wile
Baillie Peyton Chandon, and he was from
Texas, the same state whence we have received
recent cheering intelligence of an extended
A correspondent who spent a fortnight among
the wounded at Antietam, dedlares that this
poor youth, who enlisted his kindest care and
sympathy, was not at heart a rebel. He was
nineteen years old on the day his thigh was
amputated, an operation rendered necessary by
five wounds which he had received. A sixth
'on the neck was less severe. He had lain two
days on the battle field before he was discover
ed. When taken care of by hospitable Union
soldiers he said that he was at school when the
war broke out, and that he wished td remain
there, but that the conscription began in his
town, and he was forced to join the army. And
yet all this time his hopes and prayers were for
the stars and stripes. An incident occurred in
the halpital, which shows the noble self-abne
gallon of a Union soldier, and proves that
Chandon was appreciated by his former foes.
After the amputation, the surgeon sent for a
cushion, to place under the stump of a thigh.
The messengers returned with word that there
were none left. A young Massachusetts sol-
I dier, who two days before had had his thigh
amputated, hearing this, put his hand down
' and taking hie own pillow, handed it to the
surgeon, saying : 'Sere, Doctor, give him
this ; he needs it more than I do."
Was there ever greater heroism I What was
Sidney's cup of water to this? And yet in our
army hospitals such cases of self abnegaldon;iire
paralleled every day.

The steamer Gladiator, arrived at Liverpool
from Bermuda, and brought sundry reports as

one statement going so far as to say that he
blockaded the port, and refused to withdrair

sent a boat to the Gladiator, and ordered the
captain to go on board his vessel. The captain
refused, being at the time under the protection
of a British man of war, which ran out its guns
ready for action.
The Gladiator was then allowed to proceed.
The matter attracts much attention in England.

About seven o'clock yesterday morning,
when ten milts above Sr Genevieve, the steam
er J. H Dickey exploded one of her boilers,
killing nevem' and wounding others of her
ratelleugma and .crew. The passengers were
awakened by a vinlent shock, and rushing from
their rooms, -found that the boat had run
against the Illinois bank, and lay fastened in
the mud. du about fifteen minutes, while the
passengers were still wandering about the cabin,
not yet recovered from the first alarm, another
terrible shock shook the .whole boat, and the
forward cabin was instantly filled with scalding
steam, which numbers inhaled, and fell dying
upon the floor, while the passengers, among
whom were several ladies, rushed in a panic to
the stern. Another horror was added to the
calamity by a fire breaking out in the state
rooms and through the floor above the boilers
communicated from the furnace. After long and
earnest exertion, the fire was conquered ; and
all unite in bearing praise to Capt. Musselman
for his bravery and judgment. The cause of
the explosion remains uncertain, the engineer
stating it to have.been occasioned by the shock
on striking the shore, disarranging the boiler,
while otbdis maintain' that the 'fatter was old
and defective. The pilot states that the steamer
went ashore from the signal to back, being
misunderstood as one to go ahead. Among the
killed Is Liatit. F. Dtidge, 6th United States
Cavalry, of Philadelphia. Henry Whalen, the
clerk, is dangerously scalded. Several persons
are known to have been blown overboard, and
others jumped into the river and were drowned.
