Under the specious title of , g Union Leagues"
the Lbolitiion demagogues and public journals
are endeavoriag to mass together in every
town throughout the country a certain number
of adherents to the policy of the administra
tion, whose particular office in the future is
meant to be to aid the - provost marshals to
enforce the Conscription act. This purpose
is developed in the very nature of things.
Were a call made to-morrow for three or five
hundred thousand men a bare fraction would
respond. To get men to go to the field and
sacrifice their lives or suffer privation for the
sake of miserable dogmas and in violation of
their own opinions, to help to inaugurate in
terminable war, and consolidate and organize
power over their own inalienable rights, Force
must be employed and only Force can avail.
Where is the administration to obtain this
physical agent to carry out the design of the
Conniption? Men wild stay at home and not
leave it until they are marched away under
escort, so long as the war keeps on in this way
and there is no hope, not a shadow of hope,
that the administration will relent or that the
despotism of bigotry will relax its efforts at
supreme controL The army cannot be diver
ted from the field to carry out the Conscrip
tion; and so great is the reluctance of the
people, to such an ebb has popular feeling
s unk with reference to the war, that absolute
capture is the only resource ndw-a-days, under
t h e working of its own admirable system, by
means of which the administration can pro
cure armies to defend and support it, and to
conduct the war as it wishes.
What they propose to do in this state of
things is 'manifest. The " Union League's_
aptly to be called in language used in quite
another connection once,." a league with death
and a covenant with hell"—is to supply, if
possible, the place of armed guards, to patrol
the country under provost marshals and en
force the draft.
The principle of such a procedure is as tho
roughly Jacobin as ever disgraced and proved
the ruin of a great dynasty in France; the
method of carrying it out like the. employment
of Praetorian guards in the melancholy and
disastrous reign of Augustus in Rome, which
ended at length in counter revolution.
We have never advised, nor are we about to
advise, any resistance to the folly and tyranny
of the administration, but legitimate and mo
ral opposition at the ballot-box ; we have
neve encouraged any hope but the hope which
must proceed froni a gradual and effective
change in public sentiment; but we would
make our opposition none the less strong be
cause it must be characterized by temperance,
wisdom and lawful means, and we do not wish
the hope of retrieving hereafter our fallen
condition to become less ardent and die out,
because we cannot touch the instruments of
crime and tyranny to realize the ends we aim
at. We haie, therefore, only one word to
say to our party friends in this connection,
and that is, onounizz—organize ta your sepa
rate sections open assemblages for the free and
full discussion of the principles you profess;
let no dark-lanternism taint the proceedings of
these bodies—let them be public ; but leave
nothing undone to effect a vigorous and active
organization ; gather together the ranks of the
' proscribed and hunted, but great and fearless,
army of Conservatives, which moves to victory
by the sure and silent marches of peaceful and
law-abiding measures, and carries high above
the turbulent menaces of wrathful and intem
perate zeal the symbol of single and unfailing
love for liberty and the great Covenant which
is its charter.
The schemes of centralization which have
emanated from and find their focus in the ad
ministration, are the apprehensions of an un
safe and uneasy tyranny, which dares not
trust itself to the free and -unforced approval
of the people. Afraid to rest upon its merits
the war which they are just beginning, the
faction of fanatics Who surround the throne
and move its sceptre, have summoned to their
aid the military power in their hands ; and,
extending the vast patronage of the govern
went into every precinct of the country, are
endeavoring with an artful duplicity of names
to bind hand and foot every unwilling subject,
and carry into the vortex of a long, bloody
and fruitless struggle the remaining manhood
of the nation. Against them we advise pa
tience, organization, wise and temperate coun
sel, the strongest and best means of effectual
resistance and the sure precursors of our tri
Gov. Johnson and Gov. Wright.
Gov. Andrew Johnson, of Tennessee, and ex.-
Gov. Joseph A. Wright, of 'lndiana, spoke to a
meeting in the Court House on Friday night.
The House of Representatives refused, by a,
vote of 56 to 22, to suspend the rules in order
to consider a resolution tendering the use. of
the Hall to these distinguished personages,who
appear to be on an Abolition stumping tour.
The administration papers take offence at this,
and apply the terms "traitor" and "copper
head" with great freedom to the thirty 2 two
members who refused their assent, charging
the action to partisan opposition and disloyal
motives. We take a different view of the mat
ter, and, without indicating how we should
probably have voted had we been a member,
may venture to suggest that the motives of the
thirty-two gentlemen who recorded their votes
against a suspension of the rules may have
been very pure and very patriotic. Indeed,
we do not doubt they were. The evidence of
it lies in the fact that they view the course
and policy of the administration as directly
antagonistical with the Constitution, as sub
versive of that true and only Union which the
Democratic heart yearns for and supports, and
as hostile to every vital principle upon which
the government was founded ; and, entertain
ing these opinions, they could not have voted
otherwise than they did without proving recre
ant to duty and false to their professions.
They voted against giving the use of the Hall
to Abolition emissaries, traveling agents of the
administration, whose mission was to preach
doctrines subversive of the true government,
sustaining the President and the Congress in
all their high-handed measures, and imbuing
the public mind with sentiments destructive of
that spirit of republican liberty which we were
all taught in our childhood to love, and which
we cling to in our maturer years as more inval
uable than life itself. For this act they are
condemned by the Abolition press. Yet it is
the very strongest evidence of their integrity,
consistency, and the purity of their motives.
Had they not done so, they would have com
pletely stultified themselves, and lost the re
spect and confidence of those whose good
opinion is of more value to them than would
be the hypocritical plaudits of a venal press
which by its whole course has shown itself to
be the pliant instrument of ruffianism, usur
pation and tyranny.
If Andy Johnson and Joseph A. Wright were
now the high-minded, honorable, patriotic men
they once were, they wouldnot be found where
they are, associated with traitors and tyrants,
violators of the Constitution, enemies of the
Union, instigators of servile insurrection—all
of which their souls once abhorred—nor would
they be found meanly - catering for applause
from a party and a press that were unstinted
in their abuse of them while they were in
the line of duty as true and loyal men.
Such are our views. and we trust that no
loyal Democrat will permit himself to be de
ceived by anything that these traveling rene
gades may say, or by anything that the Aboti
tion press may say of them. They are not,
perhaps, inoculated, like Sumner and Phillips
and Greeley, with the virus of AbolitiOUlsM—
on the contrary, we believe that in their con
sciences they condemn the dogmas of that revo
lutionary and destructive party—but for this
very reason they are more despicable and, at
the same time, more dangerous; for they
preach all the heresies of the party under the
cloak and in the name of Democracy, desecra
ting its altars with profane offerings, seeking
justification in the tyrant's plea—necessity. In
the name of Li6erty, they are instigating and
perpetrating crimes against Liberty and Law,
against Christianity and Humanity—crimes
which startle the whole world, make nations
stand aghast, and which, in any other land,
among any other people lees imbued with the
principle of toleration, less accustomed to the .
blessings of freedom, would bring them to the
scaffold or the block. Between such men and
Democracy there can be no communion of
spirit—no association that can be profitable.
Our duty is to discountenance them, to keep
aloof from them, to protest against their prin
ciples and their policy, to rebuke them on
every proper occasion, to throw every lawful
impedimpt in the way of their success—and
this duty we should fearlessly perform.
One word in relation to Andy Johnson, sepa.
rate and apart from his traveling colleague, to
set him in hie true light before the people, and
show to what pernicious results the evil coun
sels of such a man may lead. On the night of
the bth instant the editorial office of the Crisis,
a newspaper published by Ex-Governor Samuel
Medary, at Columbus, Ohio, was attacked by
a party of seventy or eighty men from Camp
Chase, armed with sabres and revolvers, and
almost totally destroyed. It matters not what
was the reason—the act was unlawful violent
might have led to blo3dshed ; and, therefore,
is unjustifiible. After the outrage had been
perpetrated, after there had been a little time
for reflection, some of the mob began to expe
rience compunctions of conscience and to ques
tion the propriety of their conduct. To quiet
these repenting men, and satisfy them that
they had done nothing wrong, others respon
ded interrogatively, "Did not Governor John
eon tell us to do so?"
For this we have the euthority of the Ohio
Statesman, published at Columbus, a very
moderate, conservative paper, and we shall
assert it as true, on this authority, until au
Such, then, is Andy Johnson—the advocate
of mob law, the defender of Executive usurpa
tion, the emissary and advocate of Abolitionism
Some men who have linked their political
fortunes to the present national administration,
and cry amen to every act of Mr. Lincoln,
nevertheless seriously object to being called
Abolitionists. They squirm like eels under
going the skinning process. We confess to
a dullness of understanding which prevents us
from seeing why they should feel so sensitive
On the subject, blue their political association
is clearly with those whom they affect to de
spise. Like Mr. Cox, of Ohio, we " can see
no difference between the Republicanism that
sustains emancipation proclamations, and the
real old, genuine, Congo Abolitionism. They
are links of the same sausage—made out of the
Genius ufLiberty and Broivnsville Times.

In the Senate on the 6th the standing com
mittees were announced; after which a discus
sion arose on the question of taking the new
oath of loyalty, which is in the following
" I solemnly swear that I have never volun
tarily borne arms against the United States
since I have been a citizen thereof; that I have
voluntarily given no aid, countenance, counsel
or encouragement to persons engaged in armed
hostility thereto ; that I have neither sought
nor accepted, nor attempted to exercise the
functions of any office whatever under any
authority or pretended authority in hostility
the United States; that I have not yielded a
voluntary support to any pretended govern
ment., authority, power or constitution within
the United States hostile or inimical thereto ;
and I do further swear that to the best of my
knowledge and ability, I will support and de
fend the Constitution of the United States
against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that
I will bear true faith and allegiance to the game;
that I take this obligation freely, without any
mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and
that I will well and faithfully discharge the
duties of the office on which I am about to en
ter, so help me God."
After considerable talk the President pro
tem. called upon Mr. Foster to administer the
oath to him, which was accordingly done, when
all the new Senators, except Mr. Doolittle who
was not in, and Mr. Ramsey, Minnesota, not
yet arrived, took the oath.
The President has made the following ap
pointments for the new Territory of Idaho :
For Governor, Hon. W. H. Wallace, late dele
gate in . Congress from Washington Territory ;
for SecretarY, J. B. Daniels, of Oregon ; for
Judges, Hon. Sydney Edgerton, of Ohio ;
Mark Smith, of Washington Territory, and
Samuel Parks, of Illinois; for District Attorney,
Richard Williams, of Oregon; for Marshal, D.
S. Payne, of Oregon.
A serious riot, resulting in loss of life and
destruction of property, occurred in . Detroit on
the 6th. A negro who had committed an out
rage upon a young white girl was being taken
from the court room to the jail under the escort
of the military, when an attempt to rescue was
made by a gang of rowdies. The crowd was
fired upon, and one man killed and several
Wounded. Being foiled in their attempt to get
possession of the negro, the mob perpetrated
the most horrible outrages upon the colored
people residing in the vicinity of the jail.—
Houses were gutted and burned, and the in.
mates maltreated and in many instances killed.
Ten or fifteen lives have already been lost and
as many houses burned. All the available
military there, and a regiment in the interior
of the State, have been sent for. A vigorous
attempt will now be made to quell the riot. A
later dispatch, dated Detroit, March 7, says :
The military last night succeeded in disper
sing the rioters, and all is now quiet. Twenty
or thirty buildings were burned, several per
sons killed, and a large number wounded.
A disastrous battle was fought st Spring
ville, Tennessee, thirteen miles South. of Frank-*
lin, on , the sth inst., between a few Union
regiments under Colonel Coburn and a rebel
division said to have been 18,000 strong, com
manded by Van Dorn. The following are the
only particulars that have reached us :
" Five regiments of infantry and one battery
of the 18th Ohio, with the 9th Pennsylvania and
2d Michigan cavalry, all under command of
Col. Coburn, of the 33d Indiana, advanced on
Springville on the 4th inst. Several spirited
tainoishes occurred during the day, our troops
camping four miles distant. On the sth a move
ment was apparent,and during some disorder on
our left, they auddenly,.opened on our men with
three batteries, ondifferent points, at the same
time. The enemy also appeared on each flank
in greatly superior force. The unequal con
test was maintained with great determination,
with heavy loss on both sides, and resulted
unfortunately to our troops ; a large part of
the 33d Indiana, 19th Michigan, 22d Wiscon
sin and 85th Indiana, with the most of their
commissioned officers, being captured. Our
artillery and cavalry were successfully with
drawn. The 124th Ohio was out, but returned
without loss. All is quiet to-day,. The rebels
have fallen back. Their force was infantry,
with heavier artillery than ours."
General Gilbert, who commands at Franklin,
and had seven regiments there, is severely
censured for not sending reinforcements. The
affair appears to have been badly managed.
The steamer Columbia, arrived at New York
from New Orleans, with dates from that city
to the 27th ult., and Havana dates to the 2d
inst. She brings two passengers, negro tra
ders, who had succeeded in landing a cargo in
Cuba, the profits from whose sale amounted
to $960,000, which they brought in gold to
New York. Three companies of the 42d Mas
sachusetts regiment, the crew 'of the Harriet
Lane, and 220 of the Bth regulars, who were
captured by the rebels two months ago, have
been exchanged, as have also the twenty priso
ners taken at the capture of the Queen of the
West. A letter from our Consul at Matamora
says from three to Ave thousand rebel soldiers,
under Gen. Bee, are marching toward Browns
ville, Texas. The United States gunboat Kins
man was sunk in Berwick Bay by striking a
snag, and ten or tivelve of her crew are repor
ted to have been drowned. She was a mere
river boat—a shell. The rebel armory at Clin
ton, Louisiana, has been destroyed by fire.
No military movements had taken place at New
Orleans. Gen. Weitzel had a strong force in
Lafourohe. Gen. Grover is still in command
at Baton Rouge. It is reported that he has
refused to recognize negro regiments, and that
Gen. Banks had issued an order commanding
him to treat them as being en an equality with
white soldiers. No business doing at New
Orleans. It was rumored in Havana that Gen.
Forey, commanding the French in Mexico,
would start for Puebla on the 21st or 22d of
From rebel sources we have the following
intelligence : A Savannah dispatch says that
Fort McAllister was attacked by the Union
iron-clads on the night of the 3d instant and
shelled all night. Three iron-clads and two
mortar boats were engaged in the attack. An
colurnbiad had been dismounted in the
fort and two men wounded. Later, one of the
iron-clads is reported to have been withdrawn,
and the troops in the fort in good spirits.
A Port Hudson dispatch, February 25, says
a Yankee force reported four thousand strong
is marching towards Lorgansa, the advance of
one thousand having reached Amite river.—
February 27, we learn that Col. Mill's Legion,
the 4tll Louisina, Col. Hunter, and Fennery's
battery have diiven the Yankees back from
Point Coupee—they retreated ignominiously at
the appearance of our forces. The enemy is
reported 30,000 strong at Baton Rouge.
Nassau advices received at Charleston give
an account of the exploits of the Confederate
privateer Retribution. She had captured and
burned several vessels; and sunk an unknown
whaler in the Carribean sea that had offered
some resistance, killing two of her men. The
whaler went down with all her crew.
A M'lginnville (Tenn.) dispatch of the 2d to
the Mobile Nerve says that Major Austin, of
Morgan's brigade, with 1,500 men, passed
around the Murfreesboro' and Nishville rail
road, tearing up the track and running a train
of soldiers over an embankment.
The Richmond Dispatch, of March 5, says :
On Saturday last gold was sold at $2.50®2.60,
advancing during the day, and yesterday it
went up like a rocket until it reached $3.
The Petersburg (Va.) Express publishes a
dispatch from Gen. Pemberton, stating that
the Indianola, U.S. gunboat recently captured,
was sunk on the west side of the river, and
that her boats and upper works had been taken
A Charleston dispatch, Feb. 26, says: The
latest advices from Port Royal state that the
Yankee fleet now there numbers one .hundred
and twenty-three vessels, including three fri
gates and twenty gunboats. The rest are
chiefly transports. There are now 80,000 men
collected there, and more are expected.
The Richmond Dispatch, revived at Fortress
Monroe, dated March 6, says the Indianola,
recently captured from the. Yankees, was
blown up last Tuesday night by the rebels,
and her guns fell into the hands of the Fede
rals. The Queen of the West left in such a
hurry as to leave part of her crew on shore.
The Federals attacked Van Dorrion the Ist in
stant at Thompson's, near Franklin. He drove
them back, and captured 2400 officers and
men. The rebel loss not yet reported. An
attack was daily expected on Port Hudson by
Banks' force. A later dispatch says the Indi
anola was not destroyed ; that they are raising
her. The Federal gunboats are making great
destruction on Lake Providence.
THE LATE FIGHT NEAR STRABI3IIRG.—The
correspondent of the Wheeling intell(gencer
gives the following additional faots relative to
the recent disgraceful affair beyond Winches
when the panic commenced the advancing
portion of our detachments turned their faces
toward Winchester as quickly as possible, and
in the operation of changing direction a por
tion became mixed up with a portion of the re
tiring party,and all together commenced a pre
cipitate retreat, followed closely in the rear by
the foe, who persued -them in this manner for
twenty miles, keeping close in the rear of the
retreating column, employing himself all the
time in shooting, running down, and slashing
with the sabre our terror stricken and flying
The sport of the enemy can be likened to
nothing but that of the Indian in chasing a herd
of buffaloes, taking his game with unerring cer
tainty from the rear of the flying drove. And
what makes the matter still more mortifying,
We had greatly the advantage of the enemy not
only in numbers, but in the quality and condi
tion of our horses and arms.
It is clear that had our officers been able at
any one of the numerous advantageous points
that presented themselves all along the route to
have rallied their men and made a determined
stand, they might not only have repulsed the
enemy, but turned the tables upon him and
made themselves the pursuing party. I learn
that some of the officers labored hard to rally
their men, whilst others set the example of dis
To make the matter still worse, a portion of
the rear of our flying columns in the flight and
confusion fired on one another, or at least
those in advance fired back on their Mewls.—
Many horses were killed, some by over exertion,
running them until they fell dead or exhaust
ed in the road.
Our loss was about 160 killed, weunded and
missing, including Major Byrne of the 13th
Pennsylvania, who was mortally wounded.
We think the following "Nashinal Him—in
worse," which we copy from the Redford Gazette,
ought to obtain the prize of $5OO offered more than
a year ago and never yet awarded. As the poet,
although formerly a militia Captain, is not likely
to be rewarded in the military line by Father
Abraham, we suggest to the Committee (in New
York, we believe) to fork over that sum to the
"Worcester Bard :"

How TO MASI UNION Mga.—A gentleman
who left a portion of our army, just south of
Lexington, a few days ago, says that the Union
troops are having "a high old time" in that re
gion. There ie uo fighting going on in that
part of Kentucky, and the time is filled up in
making arrests of persons suspected of being in
sympathy with the rebels. These persons are
tried by military courts, and the way justice is
dispensed is a caution to Kansas or Arkansas.
Those who furnished forage or provision to
John Morgan-41r those who had not the power
to resist his taking them—are considered sym
pathizers, and punished or imprisoned, as the
court shall decide. The modus operandi of
these drum-head courts is as follows:
A farmer in the neighborhood is suspected
of disloyalty, and is brought up standing before
the military court and all his niggers are called
as witnesses, to swear against their master! The
following scene will explain all these grand dis
pensations of justice:
Colonel (acting as judge)—Cuffee, do you be
long to this man? (pointing to his master.-)
Cuffee—l does, yer honor.
Colonel—Did your master furnish John Mor
gan forage for his horses and subsistence for
enffee—Don't spose I understand you, Mas
Colonel—Did he furnish John Morgan forage
for his horses and something to eat for his men?
Cuffee—l understand dat, yer honor. Massa
John Morgan he oum to de plantation one day,
and he says io Massa, "Look here, old fellow,
my horses and men are hungry, I must hey
something for dem to eat. Dare's no use in
foolin'—shell out your hay and corn, and your
bread and bacon. I vial pay you in federate
Colonel—Well, Cuffee, what did your master
say to that?
Onffee—Say! Why golly, Massa Colonel, he
didn't want no 'federate money—didn't Link it
was worth a damn no how; and said he didn't
hey mor'n enough feed his own horses and
himself and his niggers.
Colonel—What happened then, Cuffee?
Cuffee—Den Massa John Morgan, he tell his
sogers to get down eff der critters and help der
selves, and they did.
Colonel—Did your master make any resist
ance to their taking these things for themselves
Cuffee—No, he didn't fight 'em. Dere was
a barn full o f gorillas, as we call dem, wid
all sorts of shootin firins, and Massa had but
one old gun, and that lad no lock. 'Spect old
Massa had too much sense for dat.
Colonel— leyourAspacter a loyal citizen, Cuf
Cuffee—Sped T dosn't understand you, Massa
Colonel—l mean, was he a Union man or a
Cuffee—Oh days it. Well, dis chile doesn't
know for sertiu. When de gorillas was here,
dey rob him, and den de was a Linkem man!
and when de Linkem sogers cum, dey rob him
too—den I spec he is for de oder side.
Colonel—The man is guilty. Captain, put
him in the guard house till he can be taken in
charge by the Provost Marshal. This court is
adjourned for the present.
This is the way the Union men of Kentucky
are badgered about--at the mercy of two armies
and it is really hard for them to know which
one treats them with the greatest harshness.
All accounts say that a system of petty op
pression has been inaugurated in their midst.
We hope a good account will de kept of those
who employ negro witnesses in Kentucky and
elsewhere. A day of-reckoning will surely
come for these political Colonels.--/ndianapotis
Tun ABOLITION CARD.—Thirty years ago the
Abolitionists played their card—"no union with
slaveholderi. ' For sixteen years, says Wendell
Phillips, "I fought against this Union, because
it tolerated. slavery." Garrison and Smith and
Abbey Kelley and ?rid Douglass all haue
fought openly against the Union with slave
holders. One step after another, steadily, per
severingly, have these destructives pursued
their course. At first they were despised and
mobbed. Bat finally the pulpit caught up the
cry—"no union with slaveholders.". Churches
separated. Self-conceited christiams refused
to sit at the same communion table to partake
of the emblem of the blood of the Saviour, with
Christian members who owned slaves. The re
ligious sentiment of the country was divided,
and Abolitionism exulted.. Their infernal work
was then half accomplished. Religious books
and.traots could not be printed in book houses
owned in common by slave and non-slavehold
ers—the religous business transactions were
sundered. Then a fiendish yell of triumphant
exultation went up from the Abolition camp.
The work; already half done, was steadily
pushed into political partiesoind the Republi
can party was organized on the "one idea" doe
trine, an "irrepressible conflict" between t h e
North and South. The triumph of this party
was hailed with further demonstratioLs and joy
by the same mad set, who had so long defi e d
the Constitution, and worked to break it down.
"It is a great. step in advance," sail Phillips.
I fought the Union with slaveholders. Said he.
"I 'sustain the Union now, because it wars
upon slaveholders—it will no longer be a Union
with them." He feels that he has triumphed.
Greeley, the leader of the fanatics the past
ten years or more, it is quite evident, now feels
that the Abolition card of thirty years ago has
won at last—"no union with slaveholders."
The words printed in his newspaper leave
no room to doubt that he is ready for a sepa
ration of the free from the slave States.
Sad indeed it is for the Union and the people,
that the warnings of the Democracy have not
been heeded upon this same Abolition crusade
against the Union—Hartford Times.
