exercise of their great gifts in holding oppo
site principles, in quickly succeeding plat
forms, they should be able to express opposite
principles in the same platform, and expect
to be credited when they say they sincerely
hold to all. It is, therfore, quite like them
to expect the public to accept as sincere and
sufficient some general professions of con
tinued devotion to the Union and the Constk
tution scattered through their last platform,
when, as we have demOnstrated, the Consti
tution would be suppressed, and the Union
dissolved, ipso facto, by the object they pro
pose and the means they adopt. As if to make
this clear beyond all doubt, they add a gene
ral declaration to all their special ones, which
embraces every possible evil that might
chance not to be embraced before. If their
resolute purpose to cause the war to fail—
their making their disloyal convention a per
manent revolutionary tribunal—their actually
menacing the Federal Government with war
—their demand of an instant cessation of hos
tilities against the rebels—their declared pur
pose to call a convention of all the States, in
some unexplained manner, and for palpably
unconstitutional and disloyal objects-'-if all
these schemes of anarchy and rebellion fail,
then, finally, they are for any means, provi
ded they are peaceable toward the rebels.--
"Or other peaceable means, to the end that
at the earliest practicable moment peace may
be restored on the basis of the Federal Union
of the States." "On the basis," etc. Can
any one read the fearful wickedness detailed
in the speech of Ashdod, summed up with
these few closing words in the speech of Ca
naan, and imagine any prevarication more
shameless ! General McClellan says it ap
pears to mean, that the rebels must return to
their loyalty and obedience. If he is elected,
we trust in God, he will hold the peace men
to that meaning, and the rebels to that duty.
We are not a candidate for the Presidency,
nor therefore under immense temptation "to
, see what is not to be seen," and the obvious
and intended moaning appears to us to be,
that we are not to be allowed to fight the reb
els any more—for any purpose or on any pre
text. It is a full and deliberate judgment
against the nation, the Union and the Con.s# 7
tuition—if force is required to save them, as
every body knows it is. The American peo
ple have two effectual remedies in their hands.
The first is, to renounce and overwhelm such
horrible principles, together with all who
maintain them. The second is, to eunah the
rebellion and all who give it aid and comfort,
so thoroughly and so quickly, that the authors
of this atrocious peace panic will have no
armed accomplices left. Then what a career
of security and glory will the nation run !
24. It has always seemed to us, to be a
thing unworthy of the American people, as
well as wholly mischievous in all its effects,
to agitate the question of peace at all. We
have already shown abundantly, that iu the
nature of the case, there was Ro way to make
peace with armed insurgents, except to par
don them, td conquer them, or for them to
return voluntarily and in good faith to their
obedience to the laws, and their true alle
giance to the nation and its government.
Every imagination contrary to these great
truths, is utterly futile, and` can end only in
*king our condition worse. Moreover,
nothing can be more notorious than that the
rebels never have been in state of mind to
listen to any conditions of peace, even if
there had been any authority in the nation
that had power to offer them, which were
consistent with the safety, the honor, or even
the continued existence of the United States as
a great and free nation. We have not con
sidered it worth. the space it would occupy to
expose the dedeitful intrigue of the rebel
agents at Niagara--whose real objects were to
organize a military force amongst the refu
gees in Canada, and concert a better under
standing with the traitors scattered amongst
ourselves. Nor can it be necessary to cast
any additional contempt upon the mock mys
tery and palpable conceit and folly, worked
out at Richmond between Mr. Davis and Mr.
Benjamin on one side, and two of our med
dlesome citizens on the other. Such attempts
ought to be punished, if they can not be pre
vented; for they agitate the public mind and
encourage the rebels in fatal hopes, which can
never be realized. The truth, no doubt, is,
that God will give us peace just as soon as
the insurgents, and their accomplices among
ourselves,, and, perhaps, we loyal Americana
also, are in a condition to accept it as a real
and lasting mercy--among the greatest He be
stows. At present we 'deem it perfectly cer
tain, that the peace which those united in the
principles of the Chicago Platform propose
to give us, would be the cause of far greater
and more protracted misery, bloodshed, and
confusion, than that they vainly imagine their
shameful remedies would arrest. . And it is
not, by any means, improbable that while
their success would disgrace, and probably
destroy the nation, their defeat may re-enforce
the rebel armies by the addition of many
thousands of them; or may even result in
their general insurrection throughout the
loyal States. Let the will of God have way
and fully accomplish itself. It is better, far
better, if traitors will have it so, that the land
be drenched in a universal baptism of blood;
and come out of it pure, glorious, and free,
than to sink down under the ferocious domini
ion of rebellious mobs, to whom all law is an
unnatural retraint, and whose supreme idea
of regulated liberty is accomplished in tearing
down every thing above them and trampling
on every thing beneath them.
25. Up, then, fathful men of this great Re
public, and stand for the vast inheritance
which God has given you. Since the begin
ning of the world, no insurrection has ever
been crowned with triumph. In all time, no
insurrection was ever heard of so littfe de
serving to triumph as this. To the end of the
world there never can be another whose tri- .
umph would be more deplorable than this.
Are we brutes, that we should be thought
capable of allowing this one to triumph? Are:
we lost to all the inspirations of our race and,
our condition, that we will permit such a
combination of such factions as now assail
us, to take our crown of freedom and break
our sceptre of renown ? Are we so unspeak
ably base as to desert our children in the mo
ment of victory'?--so utterly undone as to
give up the glorious' heritage won by their
valor and made sacred by their blood? The
shades of your ancestors call to you from the
mighty past. The loud cry of freemen all
over the earth rings upon your hearts. The
latest posterity will bless you if you are faith
ful to'them now.

ANOTHER . UNION VIC2CORY
Nebraska and Dakota Speak—Territorial
Nebraska is said to have given about 1,500
Union majority on Delegate to Congress. The
Omaha Republican gives the following returns:
Counties. Union. Dem.
Kearney , 39
Nemaha . 363 --
Richardson 320 • L-.
Pawnee - .226 • --
Cass .131 --
Washington . 86
Burt . . 55
Hall 44 ---
Saunders 1 --
Soldiers at Kearneyand Plum
Soldiers at Omaha • 16 -
Soldiers at Dakota 17
Capt. Wiles' Company 38 —.
The Union majority thus far is 1,123.
Gage, Johnson, Jones, Lancaster, Cedar,
and the soldiers' vote yet to hefir from, will
add at least 400 to this majority. As nearly
as we can estimate the result from the returns
before us, Mr. Hitchcock's majority north of
the Platte River will be 30 votes. South
of the Platte it will exceed 1,200. Add to this
the Soldiers' vote, and you have an aggregate
of 1,500. The largest majority by which the
Union men ever carried Nebraska previous to
the present election was 153. Now they have
swept the Territory by the magnificent ma
jority of 1,500!
Dakota, according to the paper from which
we are quoting, has gone the right way, elect
ing Dr. W. H. Burleigh, the regular Union
candidate for Congress, by 180 majority.
Phil Sheridan's Victories the Influence
Which Exhibits the. True Copperhead
One of the hopes upon which McClellan
and his friends based their plans of success
at the coming Presidential election, was that
the rebels would be able to make a raid
into the Northern States—or at least that they
would succeed in desolating vast portions of
Pennsylvania and Ohio. It was calculated
that if Early or some other rebel cut-throat
could wage a, deatrUctiveyar on the Northern
border, or penetrate as far North as possible,
the effect would be a grand failure to be
charged on the national authorities, and while
the people were suffering and bleeding front
the walnuts inflicted by the rebels, they could
be induced to crawl to the polls and vote for
McClellan. But Phil Sheridtm, by,' his own
vigor and the gallantry of those who fought
by his side, has disappointed all these bright
rebel-copperhead calculations. Sheridan's
victories in the Shenandoah Valley lately have
saved the North from devastation and the Un
ion party from defeat. The Copperheads admit
this when they refuse to applaud the deeds of
Sheridan. The rebels concede the fact, when
they attempt to depreciate the military influ
ence of Sheridan's operations. Who will, who
can, therefore, stay in a party that does'nt
cheer when Sheridan wins a victory?
Maj. R. I. Dodge.
It will do a large number of strictly busi
ness men good, who have had a purely busi:.
ness intercourse with this post for the last
three years, and it will be gratifying to a still
larger number of military men, who have re
ported here for orders, to learn that Ricliard
L Dodge, late a Captain in the Bth Infantry,
11. S. A., has been promoted to a Majority in
the 12th Infantry, U. S. A. If any man has
ever earned his promotion by fair and honest
service, it is R. I. Dodge. In the discharge
of his duties as mustering and disbursing
officer, he had but one object in view, and
that embraced the honor and success of the•
service; and for the last few months, as As
sistant Provost Marshal for Pennsylvania,
he has been indefatigable and eminently
successful in seconding all the efforts of the
Government to recruit its armies, and main
tain its military measures in successful ope
ration. Maj. Dodge's commission dates
from the 21st of June, 1864. We congratu
late the Major, as well as the old regular army,
on his pfomotion.
THAD. &ay - Km—the old hero—has a way of
his own of drawing portraits. Take these
two: "If you wish a delicate writer to'indite
sonnets to a lady's eyebrows, choose McClel

ter to rouse a nation, take Lincoln. If they
should encounter, either physically or men

Whom WCXenon Defends and by Whom
Ile as Defended.
It is a curious fact that Mr. tht
copperhead candidate for the Presidency, has
clung with a tenacious affection to those who
were in the lead of the rebel cause as soldiers
and statesmen, and to those in the loyal States
who, from the precipitation of the rebellion
have persisted, in giving aid and comfort to
the rebels in arms. From the very hour that
Mr. M'Clellan left Western Virginia to; com
mand the Arnly of the Potonum be "set up
shop for himself," and went about his work as
a subordinate of a higher power, utterly re
gardless of his superiors, and evincing a de
termination not to second the will and secure
the victory of the Government, but to cast every
possible impediment in the way of its success.
In this determination,. George B. M'Clellan
was sustsined by every man in Washington
and Baltimore, Who was engaged in the cause
of the Confederate Government. The Demo
cratic leaders, the prominent men in
the control of the Democratic party
North and South, seized upon M'Clellan
as the tool with which they calculated
to work the ruin of the Goverment. Un-,
der the control of the Democratic- leaders,
M'Clellan became an enemy instead of a friend
of the Government he was called to defend.
He denied its authority to revise his acts as a
subordinate in its pay—he disregarded its
power to lead him to duty-and until he was
superseded in command, he was the heaviest
load and the greatest embarrassment the Gov
ernment had to contend with or carry. As
soon as he left the army, Mr. M'Clellan, with
out reserve, cast himself into the arms of the
open enemies of the Government. The sol
dier became the siyhing apostle of peace—and
now George B. M'Clellan, after having been
supported by all the political and social ene
mies of the Government—after having been
in alliance With the 'aristocracies of the south—
After having sacrificed hie honor as a soldier to
obey the behests of a party that pandered to
his vanity--is at length become the candidate
and, favorite of that party, for the highest
office in the gift of the American people, so
that in the event of his success he may become
the means, finally, of perpetuating the ruin
of his country. The history of the world con
tains no similar instance of perfidy. The
betrayal induced by the ambition of individ
uals,contains no parallel to that of M'Clellan's
betrayal of his trust as a soldier and an
American citizen.' And yet, with history
against him, with the great cause of human
happiness and civil liberty against him, he has
the audacity to ask the votes and the confi
dence of the American people. A week hence
will decide whether this Government is to be
continued in its power and glory, or whether,
if confided to the direction of M'Clellan and
his friends, it will become dwarfed as a mere
third rate power in the estimation of the na
tions of the world.
Ho* the MeClellanites are Working on
For three or four months past, the copper
head McClellunites were engaged in an effort
to create the impression that Government
officials had concocted certain plans to de
fraud the soldi* of the free exercise of the
elective franchise. It has since been devel
oped, that while these rascals were thus loud
in their charges against Government officers,
they themselves were actually engaged in a
well organized plot to defraud the soldiers.
Their own tools have confessed this fact And
now, another fraud has just been discovered
in the west, where the Copperhead leaders have
had thousands of envelopes printed, bearing
the portraits of Lincoln and Johnson on the
outside, AND FILLET) WITH THE MCCLELLAN
ELECTORAL TICKET. 'Os calculated that the
'soldier in the army will have neither time or
means of detecting this fraud, until it is too
late ; and it is just by these-small tricks that
McClellan's. supporters hope to make hire
President. But, fortunately for the honor
and safety of the Government, these knaves
are being detected in all their plots.

having some few days ago had a full conver
