• By all the laws 'of war, we have a .perfect
right to employ the slaves against their mas
ters. Caine Marius did it, and he - was esteemed
a tolerable soldier in his day; and Napoleon,
at St. Helens,-regretted that he did not •do it
in Russia; the English did it during °matey°.

Washington threatened to hang English priso

and children. The hypocriay of Abolitionism
is impervious to good sense; if the rebels
hang our prisoners, the Abolitionists are to

Irmijmestionlug Submission.
- George Ticknor Curtis, of Boston, addressed

oa--Batnr.dar might lastyon the mthject of "Loy
alty." _According to •the. Tribune, he denied
that at any time, athether in- war•or peace, ?the
people-are bsoatil to accept, without questien,
the,.policy of' the ..agovetliment ; but areal
that conatitntioustlineans only—the ballot-box
and-free dispassion—should be brought to bear
•• to remedy the tmilscomplained
Mr. Curtis era; =questionably, eight, and
if theso peaceable, constitutional means were
permitted, the administration would stand in
no dagger of an attempt on the part of the
people to ,try other 4oad more dangerous mea
sures. -As yet there lave , beenno attempts to
suppress or prevent the exercise of the ballot
in tho free States; but the attempt-las -been
-.made to onepreas freediecusaion, without which
:the ballet-4s impaired, of -more. than half its
',..power,ata4. becomes, in fact, almost a farce.
- •
Whetherit is the intention of the. adzeinia
, tration to continue this policy; or to what en
tent they intend to carry it if iscontinued, we
know not; •ibzt this we do know, that free dis
. cuseion within the limits of the Constitution
, is a..right &std.& remedy which the - Democracy
'hold' -very dear, and which they will not yield
until•competled to do so by the meet despotic
_and irresistible means.. They hold the ballot
.available ageing all abases of government, so
long as it can be backed and strengthened by
eme discussion, and while these two rights are
v.atinterferad with they will ask no ether re
medies against the abuses of this or ani other
administration ; but once strike down free dis
cuasion,separate the two rights which are twin
bora, and we are rtudered almost powerless
against oppression,impotent to correct abuses,
and will be forced-to .the alternative of submit
ting like slaves or resisting like freemen. What
course would be taken ender such circumstan
ces, we are not prepared to• say ; but we should
apprehend -increased danger to the peace of
the country.
The Fersa•or Government they Want.
It should be kept before the people that the
Aborttionists have resolved to change the form
of this government. They want more power
than the Constitution gives them, and they
have it, unless arrested in time by. the
people. They are not scrupulous as to the
means' they use, and are now endeavoring to
court the army, so that the bayonet may have
more potency ia settling the question than the
ballot. It la to the begonet they are now ap
pealing, by falsehood ana - Battery, and if the
bayonet should yield to their appeals—which
we will not yet Believe—the people will be
coerced by the bayonet' and the, power of the
ballot beloot. In, that event. we shall have, a
form of government established giving great
ptiWer i te the rulers and little freedom. to the
peOple-rinotijer words, we shall have a Central
Secretary pro tem
Despotism, without a vestige of State rights,
with fe*, if any, popular rights, and no re
straining power at all but the despot's will.
This is what the Abolition leaders are striving
Forney says, in the Philadelphia Frees:
"Another principle must certainly be em
bodied in our reorganized form of government.
The men who shape the legislation of this
country, when the war is pist, must remember
that what we want is power and strength.
The problem will be to combine the forms of Re
publican government with the powers of a Monarchi
cal government."
In the same strain the North Ainerican re
" This war has already shown the absurdity
of a government with limited powers ; it has 'shown
that the power of every government onght to be
and Walt be UNLIMITED."
This is clear enough, we think, for the most
obtuse intellect to comprehend, and if the peo
ple refuse to be warned against the encroach
ments upon their rights contemplated by the
conspirators, they must take the consequences.
We shall do our part to defeat the project, and
if we fail shall have nothing to reproaCh our
selves with.
SeetioNal Monty and Dognintiam.
T he greatest curse of our country heretofore
and now is sectional bigotry and dogmatism.
No matter whence it sprang, education, inte
rest, pride or ambition, to it we owe the great
calamity that is now upon the nation. How
ever it may have been assisted by the confi
dence of the masses of the people_ in the
strength of our institutions, which made them
careless of the performance of political duties,
by the corruption so prevalent as to be traced
to every department of government, by reli
gionstanatieitnn, or by other causes, it is uev.
ertheleas the primary evil, the original curse,
to which may be traced the present condition
of the country—the unparalleled civil war now
raging, to end we know net how.
This bigotry and dogmatism primarily con
fined to a comparatively small section of the
North and the South—to a portion of New
England on the one side, and a portion of the
cotton growing South rin the other—has finally
infected very large portions of both sections,
and if -not in some way checked or modified,
will end in the perpetual est rangement of one
from the other, if not the ruin of both.
No•country under a free form of :government,
embracing the territorial extent and diverse
interests of ours, can exist in harmony while
such a. spirit prevails, and until the dogmatists
of both sections leant wisdom from events, and
come doin to the wammon sense doctrine that
neither can rule the other in precise accordance
with their own views, but must.give and take,
bear and forbear, in moral, political and com
mercial policy, there can be no-end of war, no
restoration of pod relationship and pros
It is;, on the one hand, idle for tbe Abolition
ists of the North to think that they can force
their peculiar ideas upon the country and
maintain the government as Ms, or put it in
anyiform in which union and freedom can to
gether be maintained; and, on the other, it is
equally idle for the pro-slavery dogmatists of
the South to suppose that they ..san impress
their peculiar dogmas upon the nation and yet
maintain its unity and integrity.
-orlnticonlitry Ben' be brought .to bear upon
these radical classes, both North and South, so
es to induce them to confine their• efforts within
theilimits of theiConstitution, and harmonize
upon rational grounds, where each can have
as much freedom-as is consistent with the ge
neral good and eempatible witlyithe pieserva
tion of the government, there would seem to
be no prospect of a change of present condi
tion, B.nd no reason why we should anticipate
a return of pease upon any terms, until one
or both sections shall be utterly -exhausted ;
and-then, with ruin staring them in the face,
and-the whole country geeatly demoralized, if
history is not all fallacious, the aware,' and
inevitable end would be despotism—from which
the restoration to free government, if restora
tion should ever take place, wouldoobe necessa
rily oloir—the people meanwhile suffering ill
the evils of oppression.
Let this, therefore,-be the mission-of the con
servative men of the country North -and South
—to curb the radical element, to put-down or
modify sectional bigotry and dogmatism, and
bring the country back to its startiegipoint of
constitutional government, . union, freedom,
peace and prosperity.
Joy at Washington.
We were told that the President was par
ticularly joyful, and that all the hangers-on
of the administration were in the very attic of
.eustacies, but were entirely unable to divine
the cause. We could not.find it in the millions
thus far uselessly spent in an unholy war—in
the hundreds of thousands of valuable !lives
sacrificed in vain—or in .our recent defeats
before Fredericksburg, Poet Hudson, Woks
-bum and other points in the Southwest—and
were about to give up the solution of this pro
blem in despair, when yesterday Forney came
to the rescue. In one of his "Occasional"
letters to the press he says 14 There is a sub-.'
stantial groundwork for the buoyancy and ex- •
ultimien which now gladdens ali loyal hearts.
The feet most prominent is undoubtedly the
extraordinary success which has attended the
financial policy of the Secretary of the Trea
sury-, and the rapidity with which his own an
ticipations have been realized." Here is the
grand secret—no discount on greenbacks—
money is to be abundant and paper promises
to pay to hold their lives by a longer tenure.
Government contractors and other robbers of
the public treasury, who have been buying up
real estate at fabulous prices, with their ill
.gains, - are relieved—the financial crisis
they feared as near at hand has been post
poned, and the whole brood of vultures and
cormorants who hang about the dying body of
the Union, can bate a longer lease of time in
whieh to gorge llemselves on the life-blood of
the nation.
There may be joy in Washington now, but
there will be, in the future, grief and mourn
ing in many a family among the people before
the debt is paid, over the creation of which the
financiers at Washington are so jubilant.
The revenue steamer Reßanee reached Bal

quarters, March 29, says : The enemy's camps
are visible for several miles ; but their troops
display themselves very little. The main body
of their army lies back about fifteen hides from
Fredericksburg, though a large force has re
cently been sent down near Port Royal. De
serters are coming in by scores. Yesterday a
lieutenant and three sergeants, all from one
company, eame into our lines, and hundreds
of others would come but for the difficulties in
crossing the Rappahannock. The deserters
report great Buffering in the rebel army, and
much disaffection among the troops. Half a
pint of flour and a quarter of a pound of meat
constitute their daily rations.
The Maine Legislature adjourned on Wednes
day last. It passed a series of resolutions,

Intelligence from Murfreesboro to the 29th
says there is reason to believe that Van porn,
with 8,000 mounted infantry and cavalry, has
moved to strike the Cumberland river below
Clarksville to intercept navigation. The rebels
are said to be concentrating in front to resist
the advance of Gen. Rosecrans, not to attack
him. They are fortified at Tullahoma, Steven

belonging to the government, and considerable
private property were thrown overboard. The
amount of money taken was $2,200, of which
$6OO belonged to the boat. The guerrillas had

with rebel cavalry, and five rebels were killed,

For many years a certain set of men have
been striving to make Abolitionism popular, a
labor which has never been attended with suc
cess—but their zealous efforts have been in a
measure rewarded, by the asoencion to power
of an anti-slavery administration. The major
ity of the people of the United States always
have been, and still are, unalterably opposed
to the anti-American doctrines which compose
the creed of politica! Abolitionism. The very
name under which these unreasoning fanatics
sailed as a party, has ever been detested ; a
synonym for everything that is unpatriotic.—
For this reason they were driven to the neces
sity of adopting several aliases, by which they
obtained temporary but inconsiderable tri
umphs, until they have reached the zenith of
their power as “Itepublicans," not PY the will
of the people, but through the peculiar forms
of our Constitution. Abraham Lincoln took
his seat, a minority President, but when "the
blast of war blew in our ears," the people went
en masse to the aid of an endangered govern
ment, believing that the new President would
act for the whole country, and do as he wished
others to do : forget party. But we are now
eating the bitter fruits of disappointment.—
Matters went on properly until the restless
leaders of the President's party cried out,
"take care of your friends," which meant this
—"we have got a powerful army, immense re
sources, and a good cause to act as a shield for
our designs; now is the time to use what a con
fiding people has placed in your hands to push
ahead our darling scheme of Abolition ; if you
lack strength, we will by-and-by give you full
control of the purse and sword." Thus they
hoped to force Abolitionism, so nauseating,
down the throats of the people. The progress
of the war was purtosely clogged so as to have
an excuse for "military necessity," under which
they could do as they pleased, and perpetuate
their infamous rule. If they thought by, this
means to make their dogmas popular, they have
found themselves hoisted with their own pe
tard," for never was Abolitionism so much an
object of disgust and detestation as it is to-day.
A liberty-loving people can never subscribe to
it. Let us be thankful that its own acts are
proving themselves its executioner.
