PURPOSES 'OP THE WAR.
Congress, by a vote nearly unanimous, passed
the following resolution, which expresses the
voice of the Nation and is the true standard of
. 1 That the present deplorable civil war has been
forced upon the country.: by the disonionista of "the
Pouthern States, now in arms against the Constitutional
government, and in arms around the Capital; that in
this National emergency, Congress, bunts - King all feel
big of mere passion or resentment, will recollect only
its duty de the whole country;• tbat this war is not
waged on their pan in any spirit of oppression, offit
any pitmen of eintquest or subjugation, or purpose of
overthrowing or interfering with•theriglas or established
institutions of those States, but to defendant; maintain
- she supremacy of the Constitution; and to preserve the
esith s all the dignity, equality gnd rights of the
several States unimpaired; and that as soon as these ob
jects are accomplished the rear ought to cease."

A few weeks ago a clerk, or underatrapper
of some sort, in Secretary Seward's office, in a
letter to the editor of the Lancaster _apron,
very disingenuously denied ,the .utterance of
suck language by the Secretary. That is,
knowing it to be tame, he had not the hardi
hood to positively deny it, but said no such
language could be found in Mr. -Seward's official
correspondence; leafing the public to infer
that he had never used it. No doubt this was
done with the knowledge of the•Seeretary him
golf. But truth, like murder, via out. it now
appears (according to the Phitadelpiga Jour
nal) that the language is contained in an official
dispatch of Lord Lyons to Earl Itussell, de
tailing a conversation with Mr. Seward., dated
Nov. 14, 1861, published in the Parliamentary
Blue Book, and copied into the New York
Times, (Seward's organ,) of March Ist, 1862.
So that the question of veracity, if there-is one
to be settled, is between Lord Lyons and Mr.
Murder and Betariation.
There is a good deal Of unnecessary and un
,lawfal severity, and something of what some
,people consider downright murde r, going on
: just now in Gen. Burnside's department. The
man, evidently, is either eraiy, and ought to
he sent to a lunatic asylum, or a tyrant, whose
restraint from liberty, or exit front life, either
lawfully or summarily, would be at once a jus
tice And a relief. In consequence of recent
executions of rebel spies (termed so by us, and
perhaps truly, but which the rebel government
-denies) hi his district, two Union
litee, of the 14th Kentucky Cavalry, and Lt.
onn, -of the let Virginia cavalry, have been
-set apart by the Richmond authorities for exe
cution, in retaliation. If the men hanged by
Burnside ware, in reality spies, it is a barbar-
ous ontrageen the part of the rebel government
to retaliate by the execution of prisoners cap
tured in honerable warfare—but, if they were
no more spies than Vallandightun was a traitor
or a rebel ;sympathizer, then the case is so far
altered that the Confederate Goiernment, in
the execution of our officers, will be guilty of
no greater atrocity than our own. After the
conviction of VaLlandighatn, we can have as
leep& ceaftdence in the judgment or justice of
Gen. Burnside and his dram- - aead court mar=
tial—and, what we believed before, to wit:
that the men executed were spies, we doubt
sow; for those who will deliberately violate
law and justice in one instanoe—as in the case
of Vallaadigham—will not hesitate to do it in
another. If the men hanged were spies, the
Richmond Government, by the act of retalia
tion, willsonimit murder, and deserve the exe
crations of mankind. They have banged men
as epics, we believe, sad there has been no re
fellation, at least as such, on our part. It will
therefore behoove them to be very- certain that
Burnside's victims were not spies, before they
proceed to execution on the two officers they
hold - for that purpose. A deed of that kind
would be.the inauguration of bloody work, and
although we detest the system of retaliation
as barbarous, if once unjustly begun, it will,
we fear, be carried to an extent that Will shook
the heart•e[ humanity throughout the civilized
It is terrible even to meditate upon 'gulch a
- system—a code so cruel and so bloody. If
AirKee and Conn are executed, thewof course,
two Confederate officers will be hu4 ; but, al
'though that May ivenge t tfte first vinffins, i%aan
,not restore them to the llfetally and csinellt
'taken froml.ther. Ito o r ellowt, it
small satisfaction to them, as they mount the
steps of the scaffold, to know that two others,
equally innocent, will be put through the same
process to avenge their undeserved and un
timely fate. And BO on through the whole
course of the infamous system. To talk of aven
ging, is to use not only foolish but unchristian
language. Unless retaliation has the effect to
stop the barbarous practiee altogether, every
fresh life sacrificed is a new murder and a new
disgrace to the nation.
We trust our Government will well inform
itself of the facts in the case of the men exe
cuted by order of Burnside, and if they were
really spies, present the fact officially to the
rebel government. In that case Davis would
hardly proceed to extremities. If he did, then
all the blood subsequently shed in the avenging
process would be upon his own head, and he
would be held guilty by God and man.
The party now in power demand of the De
mocracy unquestioning support of the admin
istration as a test Of loyalty. All who refuse
to acquiesce in the demand are pronounced
disloyal and traitors to the government—and
the organs of the party are incessant in their
calls upon the President to exercise the despotic
power with which Congress has invested him
to force them into subjeotion. There la not a
day passes that hundreds of Abolition papers
throughout the land are not engaged in the
loyal told laudable enterprise of trying to have
Democrats seized by military authority, sent
beyond the lines, imprisoned, cr hanged, This
is their policy now, because they wish, in some
way, to dispose of their political opponents, in
order that they may perpetuate power in their
own hands—and the good, Christian souls can
think of no other way than imprisonment, ban
ishment, or death.
Had the . Democratic party pursued a similar
policy in the days of its power, there would
not only not be an Abolition administration
direetieg the government to-day, but there
would not be a vestige of Republicanism or
Abolitionism left. The fathers of Abolitionimn
would years since have expiated their offenses
on the gallows, or be languishing in prisons,
and one-half the Republican party been ban
ished to some penal colony far off in - the
There never has been, since the foundation
of the government, a Democratic administra
tion, in peace or is war, that these men have
not constantly, coarsely and vindictively
abased. They were never known toiupprove
a single sot of a Democratic administration,
although tinder the acts of that party the-coun
try grew to the greatness and glory it pos
eessed'at the commencement of the rebellion,
As a party they reviled Madison and opposed
the war of 1812. They abused him and vitu
perated hie administration with a bitterness
and recklessness of troth characteristic only
Who has forgotten the eaTiteakess of ski t
istration, before, during, and after the Mexican
war. They used the language of billingsgate,
the slang of 'scavengers, and in the reckless
ness of their mendacity exceeded Munchausen,
and equalled the Prince of Liars himself.
Suppose the Democrats, acting' upon the
anti-Republican, anti-American policy which
they are now pursuing, had seized them by
military power, tried them by drum-head
courts-martial, expatriated, imprisoned or
hanged them, as they propose to do, mid in
some measure have done with us, where would
they be to-day ? .
Not in power, as tyrants, assuredly—but in
foreign lands, rotting in prisons, or filling ig
'While Mr. Lincoln was A. member of Con
gress, during the Mexican war, he delivered a
speech (14th January, 1848,) from which the
following are extracts:
" Let him (Pros-Wait Polk) answer fully,
fairly, and candidly. Let him answer with
-facts ' and not with arguments. Let him re
member he site where Witshington sat-; and,
so remembering, let him slower as Washington
would answer. As the nation should not, and
the Almighty rig not, be evaded, so let him
attempt no evasion, no equivocation.
* * * * *
" But if he can not or will not do this : _if, bo
any pretense, or no pretense, he shall refuse
or omit it—then I shall be fully convinced of
what I more than suspect already, that he is
deeply conscious of being in the wrong; that
the blood of this war, like the blood of Able,
is crying to Heaven against him ; that he or
dered General Taylor into the midst of a peace
ful Mexican settlement purposely to bring on a
war; that, originally, having some strong mo
tive—what, I will' not stop now to give lay
opinions conoernhig—to involve the two coun
tries in a war, and, trusting to escape scrutiny
'by fixing the public gaze upon the exceeding
brightness of military glory—that attractive
rainbow that rises in showers of blood—that
charms to destroy—he plunged into it, and has
swept on and. on, till, disappointed in his cal
culations of the ease with which Mexico might
be subdued, he now finds himself he'knows not
where. How like the half insane mumbling of
a fever dream is the whole war part of the late

"All this shows that the President is in no
wise satisfied with his own positions. First,
he takes up one, and, in attempting to argue
ns into it, he argues himself out of it; then sei
zes another, and goes through the same ; and
then, confused at being able to think of no.
thing new, he snatches up the old one again,
which he had some before cast off. His
mind, tasked beyond its power, is running
hither and thither, like some tortured creature
on a burning surface, finding no position on which
it can settle down and be at ease.
"Again, it is a singular omission in this
message that it nowhere intimates when the
President expects this war to terminate. At
its beginning Gen. Scott was, by the Presi
dent, driven into disfavor, if not disgrace, for
intimating that pease could not be conquered
in less than three or four months. But now,
at the end of about twenty months—during
which time our arms have given us the most
splendid successes every department and
every part, land and water, officers and pri
vates, regulars and volunteers, doing all that
men could do, and hundreds of things which it
had ever before been thought men could not do
—after all this, this same President gives us a
long message, without showing us that, as to
the end, its has himself even an imaginary con
ception. As I before said, he knows not where
he is. He_ is a bewildered, confounded, and
miserably perplexed man. God grant he may
be able to - show there is not somethout
