THURSDAY MORNING, OCT. 1, 1868.
ABE'S VISITOR, ,
All nature was decked for her evening rest,
For the golden sun had sunk in the west,
When honest (?) old Abe, with his usual grace,
And a smile like that illuminated his face,
Reposed at his ease in a oozy arm ohair;
always at ease when settled in there !)
While thoughts of the "Nig," the War and the
And the glorious days when he sailed on a raft,
When the Devil appeared, and, grasping a chair,
Sat down with a grin that raised Abraham's hair.
How are you, my Abe? Is the list nearly filled
Of oibk. men and dying, of wounded and , killed
Of widows in tears, of orphans ,unfed ?
Of poor, honest white men struggling for bread ?
Poor Devil, quoth Abe, I'm doing . iny best
To promote the interest of yen and, the rest;
But then, you remember, I'm only the tool
Of Seward and Chase, and that other old fool
Who. the Navy controls, and who always con-
Any modern plan of -capturing Semmes;
He reminds me of one I know in the West—
Paha*: your jokes, said the Devil, are none of the
CoatinUed old Abe': Since last you were here,
The Qopperhead tribe have thrown off their-feir,
And, would you believe it, have striven to vote'
(Of which fact, Mr. Devil please make a note)
As their conscience dictated ! a thing seldom known
ouryirty, of which you're the sine* and bone.
But, chuckled old, Abe, I settled their. fate,.
I enough soldiers to carry the State I ,
Good cried thb Dail, I hope Yoiell'ziesiei cease
To spangle all efforts that tend to a peace;
Bat, tell me, my Abe, what worries your mind ?
Is your conscience not dead—your judgment not
Ab ! murmured old Abe, I've a hankering fear
Tberp'll be peace with the South in lees than a
And, striving our best, We're trying our chance
To kick up a war with England and France.
Bully for you I cried the Devil in glee,
The bows is so good, come sit on my knee;
I love thee, my Abe, and love thee gui
That•you and your aids shall Sourish in hell!
I mist kid you good bye; keep on with your
No doubt of you now in my bosom shall lurk,
So on with your "Leagues, a very good joke,
And killing old Abo, bo,noiollod to mot.,
Still the glorious sun and the night's starry band
Shine angry and sad on our grief stricken land ,
Death's holding a feast and crushing the life
From a nation torn by unnatural strife.
But what care the men that are holding the helm?
They rule o'er us all, and—the DeVil rules them.
WHAT THE DEMOCRACY ARE TRYING
"If it comes to be generally understood that
the policies of Beecher, Phillips, Greeley &
Co. have obtained in the conduct of the war,
it will end in the destruction of the govern
ment and the Union, and the triumph of rebel
lion' And slavery ."— TnvßLow WEID.
The Democracy have a. double mission to
perform. It will devolve upon them to save
the trniert of thnliitates. It will devolve upon
them to save.the libertiee of the citizen. When
Mr. Thitrlow, i Weed returned to this country
from England, he gm utterance to the ex
pression which we quote above. What he then
,inferentially, has actually come to pass.
'The , polielee-cfaaseher, &
Co. have obtained in the conduct of the - war.
Whether the result which Thurlow Weed fore
boded shall come to pass, this once glorious
government be destroyed, and the Union take
its place amongst the. mournful wrecks of
man's experiments at selfigovernment, depends
entirely upon the fact.of a defeated radical
party, or of its continuance in power. It it. is
defeated we shall save the country. If by force
and fraud it shall continue itself in the offices
of the nation, both the Union and public and
private liberty are at an end. These charges are
no graver than are the evidences upon which
they are made. A tree is judged by its fruit.
A party is judged by its acts.
Has this Republican party shown either that
it desires the Union of the States, or that it
respects the guaranteed rights of t he citizen ?
Can there be but one response to this ques
tion ? That response is that the leaders of the
party ars using the vast enginery of this gov
ernment to (Vera a constitutional Union, and
to turn the South into an Abolition Poland,
the white slaves, the slaves' masters, and every
house converted into a fort or dungeon, while
they are determined to make the government
what they call "strong," at the expense of our
present system of laws, and at the expense of
We do not believe that the masses of the
Republican party desire these things, but they
are fatally misguided, and in our triumph will
be secured their own, and their children's
rights. Oar mission is to re-establish our old
government, so that we will again have a cor
dial and fraternal re-union of the States, and
the good old feeling of confidence and security
in private circles.
All just and true men should bid the Demo
cracy God-speed, in this glorious undertaking.
We cannot conclude without subjoining that
noble catalogue of principles the exposition of
our political creed as a party by its moot illus
trious member, Thomas Jefferson. They
should be graven deep in the minds and hearts
of all men :
"Equal and exact justice to ail met', of

LOYALTY AND ALLEGIANCE.
Some of our cotemporaries are discussing
again the question of State rights and Federal .
sovereignty. It seems to bother them as much
as "free-will and foreordination" has em
ployed the minds of the theologians. It is im
possible for any man to have a clear ides of
the object to which he owes allegiance in this
country unless he divests himself of all preju
dioe growing out of the . present state of affairs,
and studies 'the' Constitution with impartial
mind. He will•then teli that there is a State
sovereignty which :is wholly independent of
the General Government, and over which the
United States has no power. He will also see
that there are subjects in which the United
States is sovereign over the State. These are
distinct subjects. It is only once in a hun
dred thousand oases that any doubt arises as
to which government is the sovereign in that
particular case. The word loyalty is not
strictly an American word. "It is not properly
applicable to the relations which we owe to
government here. But if :we insist on using
it, then, to be strictly correct, a man mast be
lokal to his State, and must support the Coned
ttition and . Government• of the United States.
This distinction has been preserved ht in the
public customs of our country, Many of the
States,,require oaths " to beer true faith and
allegiance to the 'State of as a free and
independent State." ' Such in substance is the
oath required of every voter in . certain &gee.
On the other hand, the oath to ; 44 support. the
Constitution" or to " support; and defend the
Constitution of the . United States" is the form
commonly need with reference to theduties of
officials of the General - Government. Bat one
duty does not override the. other. Loyalty to
the State is not inconsistent with, nor is it a
higher duty than support of the General Gov
ernment.' It is because of the'notion that one
is it separate and antagonistic duty from the
other that so many feel unwilling to acknowl
edge the distinction. It is impossible for the
United. States Government to succeed to the
poirereliow held by the separate Statest_ex
eept by usurpation or grant. But if the Uni
, ted States, by any terrible accident, should
cease to exist, the people of the State of New
York would. at once possess every power now
held by the United &Mee within the limits of
its own territory. This illuetratkin shows the
absolute nature of the one power, the second

Now we beg our radical contemporaries not
to go into an eestacy of rage over this state
ment of a -plain American principle, as they
did once before, when we stated it ; but if they
do not believe it let tifi lave reason against it,
or if reason fail, let ns have a citation of some
respectable authority, if any can be found.
against it. But none exists. The grand union
of State sovereignty and Federal energy
makes this Government. The State sover
eignty is as necessary to its existence, is just
as much a part of the life-blood of the Na
tional existence, as the Federal power. The
rights reserved to States are, in all respects,
as necessary to our nation as the rights given
to Congress or the Executive. The oath - to
support the Constitution binds us to support
the reserved rights of the States. The powers of
Governor Seymour, as to all subjects in which
he is veined with power by the people of this
State, are as full, complete and ample as the pow
ere of the President conferred bythe Constitution
of the United States, nor is there any diotino
tion in the grade of those powers. So long as
each officer obeys the constitutions he is swop
to support (we cay constitutions, because file
oath of each obliges him to support both State
and United States constitutions,) just so long,
by the wise arrangement of our fathers . ' there
can be no collision between, the two, but both
must eo-operate and assist each other' in the
grand work of government. And so with every
Governor of every State.
This subject is one which ought not to be
treated in the' flippant style adopted by our
radical contemporaries. It involves the entire
structure of our Government as well as the
duty of every citizen. This structure ought
not to be misunderstood. Citizens ought not
be Misled in regard to fundamental truths, for
the sake of partisan ends. If we would
preserve the life of our nation we must pre

THE POSITION OF AMERICANS.
No people of any monarchy in Europe are
more completely under autocratic- power than
the Americans . now are.• Here is the Provi
dence Poat's exposition of the real significance
and effect of A. L.'s latest Edict, and it is a
true statement. Reader, how do you like the
THR LAST PROCLAMATION.
The proclamation of President Lincoln, sue
pending the writ of habeas corpus until the end
of the war, has been placed before ourreaders.
The character of the proclamation may be
very briefly stated. With a single stroke of
the pen Mr. Lincoln annihilates the civil power
of the country. The military authority be
comes the supreme authority.
And it is no lonier true that military rule
must be governed' or regulated by any law
whatever. The will of the commander becomes
the law both of the camp and the country.—
Each officer is responsible only to his superior
officer, until we reach the commander-in-chief;
and he is responsible to nobody and nothing.
* * * The President is commander.in
chief of the army and navy, and places him
self and the army and navy above the civil
power. He does not aseert that he will tram
ple upon the rights of citizens ; but he does
assert that neither he nor his servants will
hold themselves liMenable to the laws, and
that no citizen shall Ike permitted to inquire,
through a judicial tribunal, whether he is be
ing wronged or not. He does not declare that
he will every day violate the, laws which Con
gress has enacted fer the government of the
nation ; but he does boldly proclaim that hie
acts shall not be submitted to the laws, or ques
tioned by the courts. He tears down the only
safeguard of our liberties. and coolly inform
those whose servant he was intended to be,
that some necessity which he perceives or thinks
he perceives, makes him their master. if he
desires to play the tyrant, nothing bat revolt'.
tion can prevent him from doing it.
* * * * To us it evinces a determina
tion to perpetuate power in this administra
tion. To us it says "There shall be no more
talk of constitutions; so, more appeals to
c3urts ; no more regard for written laws ; ; no
more boasting of personal freedom. lam tk e
gottritetint, end my will is law. Your duty
is submission; and for your submission
there is no protest." This may not be the
meaning which Mr Lincoln attaches to his
words. But who will say that all history does
not give them this interpretation?
4 4 Ws will arrest the . 4 irrepressible conflict;'
we are not ready to give constitutional liberty
for licentious liberty ; we will not suffuse all
the memories of the past and all the hopes of
the future for negro freellom."—George

" Those brave young men who had te

country were in rage, with shoddy vestments,
shoes whose soles were stuffed with shavings,
and blankets almost as thin and transparent
as a window-pane."
This charge is literally true. The Legisla

aion for clothing the soldiers of Pennsylvania
comfortably and creditably. But Goy. Curtin,
through his agents, squandered the appropria

May, and in less then six weeks from that time
the regiment was in rags I Men appeared on
dress parade in their drawers, and so difogrseeT
ful was the spectacle, that Col. F. P. Mistier
ordered them to their quarters. Some were

as the "ragged Third !" When they,re

This is no over-drawn picture, but the plain,
unvarnished truth, and oan be verified by

THE REPEAL OF TEE kIfAIVOIPTIONI
"God forbid that our country should ever
descend to that depth of infamy I No. The
only course of honor , and justice is that which
the President quietly but firmly indicates.
The promise being made, must be kept.' "
Aye, if the promise being made, must be
kept," but what promise ? First, the oath
which Abraham Lincoln took on assuming the
Presidential office, " to support the Constitu
tion of the United States—so help me God,"
Next he must fulfil the promises of the inau
gural address, which, referring to the pledges
upon which he was elected, he renews, in these

or indirectly, to interfere with the inatitution of

I HAVE NO LAWFUL RIGHT TO DO SO,
AND I HAVE NO INCLINATION TO DO SO.'
Those who nominated and elected me did so
with full knowledge that I made this and many
similir declarations, and had never recanted
them: I now reiterate these sentiments; and in
doing so, I only press upon the public attet

and security of no leaden are to be in any

which, consistently with the Constitution and
laws, can be given, will be cheerfully given to
all the States, whin lawfully demanded, for

Aye, keep the promise ! It is written in
the Crittenden resolution, which declared that
the war was waged to maintain the Constitu

and that as soon as this end was accomplished
it should cease !
These are the promises which President
Lincoln made to the people—before election,
upon his inauguratiori,' and since ! upon this

CONSPIRACY ON FOOT TO REZAK CP THII Howl
OF ItSPRESSIitATIVNS. — The Washington cor
respondent of the Chicago Times thus sounds
the note of alarm
There is another very serious matter in read
tion to which the people ought to be warned.—
The recent elections for members of Congress
make it probable that there will be a majority
of members in the neat House of Represents.-
tivee in opposition to the administration. It
will be a very small majority, but still a ma
jority, and they would have the power to elect
the Speaker. The administration have taken
means to prevent this. When Congress assem
bles, men will present themselves from all the
districts in the Southern States now occupied
by Sur troops, and will claim to be Union men
in those districts. Arrangements have been
made to have such men sent from North Caro
lina, Arkansas, Louisiana, the Western part of
Tennessee and Florida.
These men will really have been elected, but
it will be by an election held and controlled by
military force, and at which no one will have
been allowed to vote except tools of the admin
istration. need not say that the veiee of the
people of the States I have named will not be
heard or expressed in those elections at all.—
But the creatures thus elected will come to
Washington,andwM &timed seats in the House
of Representatives. The utmost power of the
administration will be exercised in order to
have them admitted to seats. The money in
the Federal Treasury will be used in lavish
Profusion to effect this end. If it is effected,
if these men,'even if five of them are admitted,
it will• turn the balance, and the Republicans
will elect the next wisher. Already, by the
juggling of the last Congress in passing the
bill for the dismemberment of the State of Vir
ginia, the administration has created for itself
two votes in the United State. Senate. The
dismemberment game will be 'tried again in
this Congress. For every State thus dismem
bered the administration gains two new votes
in the Senate.
