' In ordinary times it is scarcely the province
of a public print, professing impartial support
to the principles of party, to mingle its opin
ions with matters purely of local moment and
importance, much less to interfere with ex
pressed preferences for particular persons for
any public office. It is far from the design of
this journal to indulge unnecessarily in per
sonal criticism or attack, nor does it wish to
obtrude impertinent opinions on those domes
tic concerns of our municipal affairs, which
usually partake in a large degree of subjects
whose discussion is more properly confined to
persons and places without the scope of gene
ral rules and principles. The imminent and
peculiar attitude of our national affairs, how
ever, the lessons we have learned from the
previous management of our citrevernment,
demand at this time that we sho dismiss for
once the precedent of silence, 10 urge upon
the consideration of our party friends such
just and general suggestions as may be of ser,
vice in the right selection of the Chief Magis
trate of our city.
We desire, to begin with, among the Demo
cracy of the citeas much unanimity of opinion
in reference to the choice of the right man for
Mayor as possible; and we wish to enjoin es
pecially upon their attention that proper defe
rence to the will of the majority which has
ever been the cardinal idea of all Democratic
No splits or compromises can be effected
here or , elsewhere with safety to party success,
or with credit to party prestige. The will of
the majority once fairly ascertained, it is the
duty of every honest Democrat to lend his aid
in securing the nomination and election of the
man whom the majority endorses. We doubt
not there is a willingness and a desire on the
part of every true Democrat in the city to
promote unity and good feeling in the party,
and observe and be guided by what is known
to be the wish of most of his party friends ;
at all events, we can conceive of no excuse
sufficient to exempt one and all from the obli
gation which rests upon them to be faithful to
that time-honored usage of party fealty which
compels the.one to submit to and accept as
his rule the voice of the many.
Presuming that all desire for the office of
of the next Mayor a man who is a strict and
Uncompromising Democrat, it is only necessary
to indicate some general suggestions which
may with profit be borne in mind in the selec
tion of the right man-at this peculiar time for
the place in question. The Mayor who is to
hold office during the next three years in the
Capital of this State, will be required to per
form unusually important functions for the
welfare of its society and citizens. He is
40118Utatted the virtual guardian of many per
sonal rights which do not come within the
immediate operation of the more general laws;
and aside from the responsibility of protection
and administration of all municipal regulations
and the security of life and property which
devolves upon him by virtue of his office, he
is liable to be called upon to defend and main
tain against all encroachment that civil liberty
and immunity which the State Constitution
guarantees to all within its limits. To rightly
administer an office requiring so much—du
ties which the exigencies of the future may
directly impose upon him, a wise, prudent and
laxperieneed man should be chosen fer them—one
with proper firmness, consistency and dignity
to stoutly and fearlessly protect the rights of
all our citizens committed to his keeping.
Accuracy to manage the details of the office,
and perfect integrity are the primary requi
sites for a careful and upright Mayor; these

in ordinary times; but we are far from belie.

Sentiment of the Army.
If we desire to ascertain the real sentiment of
the army, we must seek for it in the private
letters of soldiers written lee friends at home,
not in resolutions written by ambitious, un
principled officers, for the purpose of securing
their own promotion. We might publish col
umns of letters written by of f icers and privates
in the army, all breathing the same spirit of
opposition to the policy upon which, and the
object for which, the war is now obviously con
ducted, but we have heretofore preferred filling
our paper with matter better calculated to en
lighten the public mind upon what we consider
the true principles of republican government,
believing that such knowledge, generally dif
fused, was the best protection against Execu
tive and Congressional encroachments upon the
public liberty, and the most effective means of
saving the Constitution and Union from the
ruin contemplated by insidious foes. But we
have a few•short extracts on hand from letters
written, mostly, by men who entered the army
as Republicans in politics, which it may not
be amiss to circulate, as a refutation of the
gross calumnies against our soldiers with
which the Abolition prees daily teems.
The Wayne county (Ohio) Democrat furnishes
the following :
Capt. J. H. Downing, formerly a leading
Republican stump orator, and much _addicted
to calling Democrats traitors, after the manner
of the administration parasites, now writes :
" Oh ! that our friends at home would go to
work and settle this unholy rebellion, which
can never be settled by war."
This much from a Democrat would entitle
him to the euphonious appellation of "Cop
S. Metzler, jr., a soldier in the Army of the
Mississippi, writes to his brother and sister :
"Alexander has been writing to me to give
him my views on the negro question, and I
will now do so. For •my part I am not for
freeing the negroes, and d would rather give
my bounty money to have them where they are
than to see one of them freed. Were it not for
the Abolitionists of the North agitating the
negro question the war might be settled in a
short time. But such people still cry out :
"Free the negro; free the .negro," and that
enrages the men of the South. Those men in
the south who have had no reason to fight, now
have a reason to protect their slaves; and they

whip them. They further say that if we suc

children to fight us.—And now you see there
is no honor in fighting such a people ; and I
say Compromise on any possible terms."
The next is from H. G. White. dated "10
miles above Vicksburg, Feb. 1, 1863." He
"The soldiers here are willing to agree to
any compromise; for the war will have to end
in compromise at last. The fighting will nev

looks very much now as though we were fighting to
destroy it. I think it has been plainly shown,
that we can never conquer the South by force

the only way to settle this unhappy struggle is
by compromise, and the longer we fight the
wider will be the breach.between the contend
ing parties, and the harder it will be to com

All these letters the, editor of the Democrat
says, were written by men who started upon
the war path Republicans in politics ; and from
information which we have, derived from sour
ces perfectly reliable, we firmly believe that
they embody the sentiments of four-fifths of
the whole rank and file of the army, and, to a
very large extent, those of the officers, field

FAlmotrm, Feb. 24, 1863.—Y0u spoke in
your letter of Governor Seymour. I see by the
New York Herald, that he was nominated for
Governor. This' suits us all. There isn't avian
in the 14th regiment, now, so far as I can learn,
that wouldn't vote the Democratic ticket—and
there are some here who - were the most rabid
Republicans you ever saw.
" There was a nice time in a New York regi
ment the other day. The colonel is a Repub
lican, and he called out the regiment to see
which way they would vote if they were at
home. The whole of them voted Democratic, and
the Colonel was as mad as a March hare. You ,
would think he would go wild. He would
hardly speak to any of the men for some days
afterwards, he was so mad. What made it
worse for him, he had some spectators to his
voting-4riends who had came to see him that
day and whom he had excited by telling them
that he was going to show them that all his
men would vote the way he wanted them to."
The letter which follows we copy from the
Bridgeport (Connecticut) Farmer. "The au

a Republican of the rankest growth :"
• " WOLFE RUN SHOALS,. VA., Feb. 3, 1868.
Moses Wilson arrived here yesterday, and is

they do he will be elected—and I know he would

This will do for the piesent. We have a
small batch on hand ourselves, from soldiers in
the Army of the Potomac, which we have here
tofore refrained from publishing, not wishing to
expose the extent to which disaffeetionin the
army has reached. Some of these we shall
publish, and hereafter will not be careful in
our course in relation to such letters as may
be sent to us. The Abolition papers shall not
have the whole game in their own hands if we

So-called " Union rileetings”—What they
Are, and Who Sustain Them.
If any of our Democratic friends are ca
joled into engaging in any of the so-called
Union meetings now being inaugurated under
the auspices of the administration throughout
the country, we trust they will bear in mind,
before becoming entangled in troublesome
'inventions of their political enemies, what
must be the inevitable tendency of such gath
erings, and with what spirit and intention, and
by whom they are conducted: Union saving
and 'Union-sentiment are queer professions in
the mouths of those whom, we contend, are
doing everything in their power to disrupt the
country, and to destroy the Constitution, by
virtue of which alone the Union can exist.
The war,.diverted from its original and legiti
mate purpose, has been made to conform to
the policy of the few fanatics, who, within a
brief memory of the whole• country, spurned
the idea of a perfect union of the States, and
spit upon the Covenant which was and is the
only bond of union. The war is their war, and
ours no longer, until, by a change of policy,
if it must still be continued, it shall be brought
back to its original and only true purpose—the
maintenance of the Constitution and the pre
servation of the Union. If any are persuaded
then, either that the Democratic party can
sustain the war as it now is, and be faithful at
the same time to the doctrines it professes, or
that such a war can lead to desirable results,
they may as well cut loose at once, and declare
themselves out of the immutable organization
which existed in power long before these trou
bles came upon the country, and will exist so
long as constitutional liberty. remains.
We hold, as Democrats, the war in its pre
sent policy is wrong; we hold that it is no
longer a war which we can endorse. We hold,
therefore, that it is the duty, and the only true
policy of the Democratic party, to stand mo
rally aloof from all that tends to aid and sup
port the iniquitous schemes of the administra
tion which have become not only part and
parcel of the war, but its essence, soul and
spirit. We hold that every legitimate opposi-.
Lion to the policy of the war should be brought
immediately to bear upon it; that, convinced
that nothing of temperance or justice can be
hoped for any longer from the power which
the administration is gaining to itself, and by
which it means to conduct the war for its own
aims and ends, we can in no wise be in its
favor. These aims are not the people's ; they
are not those of true Democracy. Public
meetings going to sustain the war as it now is,
sustain the administration, and virtually ratify
its acts. No true Democrat, who believes that
the wise and unproscriptive policy of his ewn
party can alone save the country and the Con
stitution, can lend his sanction to such meet
ings. The duty of the party and of the indi
vidual in this crisis is plain ; Democracy must
fold its arms and calmly await, in resignation
and submission, the return of better wisdom
to our counsels and brighter days for the pros
perity of the Republic. It is hard to sit a
spectator to the grim spectacle of rain which
surrounds us—hard to see the country drifting
away from all the securities of law and order
into the turbulent sea of disruption, into the
disorganized and contending elements of fury
and fanaticism, without the immediate power
to rescue it; but it is no part of the wise citi
zen and the law-abiding lover of his country,
either to aid in the work of destruction by
countenancing those who are its authors, or, by
bringing down upon himself the imputation of
open revolt, vitiate at once and forever every
hope of our salvation hereafter.
We sternly reprobate and repudiate these
"Union" meetings. They are subtle engines of
political power, intended to break in upon the
organization 'of the conservative party. They
are specious expedients to destroy the effec
tiveness of the only party with whom alone
rests the power or the desire to restore the
country. Let those men, calling themselves
Democrats, who have entered into them and
lent their name and sanction to them, renounce
at once all allegiance openly and boldly to De
mocracy. We have known many men fall from
the grace of - party fealty and be kroken in the
fall; but we are not aware that Democracy has
suffered by their apostaoy any diminution in
its strength. Let them beware, therefore ; for
ourselves, we do not trust them. The transi
tion is easy and downward when they depart
ever so little from true faith and purity of
principle. If motives of expediency govern
them, and they are wedded only to the idol of
political preferment and not to the principles
they pretend to espouse, such will be found,
as it has been found, we opine, a slippery and
unsafe foothold, so sensitive is the public mind
to the slightest departure from good faith.
If it is necessary that the public voice should
be heard at all in these times, let it be heard
in unqualified reprobation of the acts of the
administration and against its policy ; but let
us hear no more of these pretended go
betweens, who profess to go for the war and
not the principles on which and for which
alone the war is now being conducted. All
such doctrine is specious and absurd; it tends
to divide opposition, to weaken effectual resis
tance to the destroyers of the country,. and,
above all things, is what an anarchist admin
istration would desire.

THE EIGHTY-SEVENTH REGIMENT.
The following letter from an intelligent and
responsible correspondent contains some mat
ters not referred to in the resolutions published
in the Telegraph, purporting to have been unan
imously adopted by the Eighty-seventh regi
ment. We attach no consequence to such
proceedings, knowing the manner in which
they are gotten up, by officers seeking promo
tion or notoriety for services other than such
as are valiantly performed in the face of the
foe, awl should not publish this communication
were it not to gratify those who have friends
and relatives in the regiment, and naturally
desire to see them placed fairly before the
Tonic, March 7, 1868.
Editors of Slit Patriot and,Unton:
Your notorious contemporary, the Telegraph,
of this morning, contains a communication
from the Eighty-seventh Pennsylvania Volun
teers, which has been mainly raised in this
county, and from the tone of which one would
be led to suppose that had that regiment voted
at the last election, it would have oast a unan
imous vote against the Democratic ticket.—
Now, Messrs. Editors, that all looks well in
print, but here we know something about that
regiment—know the men that compose it—and
feel no hesitation in saying that no regiment
in the service (if we dare believe the hosts of
men we have conversed with) is more anxious
to have the war stopped. Recently we had
the pleasure of conversing with a captain of
the regiment, who was an ardent supporter of
Lincoln at his election, who told us that the
men were not only tired out., but played out,
and are looking anxiously for the end. The
communication referred to was shown to a
member of the regiment this morning, also a
Republican, who laughed in his sleeve at the
affair and said it must only be a joke. Again,
will the Telegraph, .or its correspondent, an
swer why the French Brigadier who com
mands this same Eighty-seventh is now under
arrest ? If not, we will answer it for him.—
Because, having had unlimited experience in
the French wars, and consequently knowing
how men ought to be treated, was not willing
to allow his baggage and ambulance train to
be filled with niggers, and the equipage left
behind, and his soldiers obliged to walk, many
of them with no covering for the feet. An eye
witness related to me that on one occasion the
train was filled with these "sable brothers,"
whilst the necessaries were left behind, and
the soldiers on foot were obliged to guard the
train and "free Americans," and that many
of the soldiers were so worn out that they could
scarcely drag their weary bodies along, and
beoause the Brigadier remonstrated with the
higher authority and would not say Amen, he
was suddenly relieved of his command. In
conclusion, Messrs. Editors, I say it, resolu
tions to the contrary notwithstanding, and
with the evidence of members of the regiment
in our midst, that although the regiment has
never participated in a battle, that no men in
the service will hail with more joy the day that
will discharge them than the Eighty-seventh
Pennsylvania ; and I feel firmly convinced that
could an honest expression of opiniop be had
to-day, three:fourths of the regiment would be
found on the side of the "Union as it was" and
"the Constitution as it is," At some future
time I will give you a history of the regiment
since its formation and show it in its true
colors—how some of the officers who figure
conspicuously in the resolutions were mainly
instrumental in deceiving the regiment and
having it placed, into active service, and that
too without the consent of the men composing
it; and contrary to their wish, as it was raised
only as a public guard regiment. More anon.
Yours, "ONE Wao KNOWS."
