' Mr. Buchanan'.
Ex Prosident Buchanan has lately been
visited by a correspondent of tho Cincin

Ex-President ho says, spoko kindly of tho
Administration, but in terms concerning
tho rebels that wcro evidently severe in
their condemnation. Reference was casu

This drew out from him a prompt regret
that the Administration uhoufd'ba 'embar

Tho Border states and tho
' Abolition Tlot.
Tho States of Kentucky and Missouri
contain a majority of men favorable to the
Union, atid willing to fight for its preservation--that
ia, for' tlio Union tjpder' tho
Constitution. Many of theso loyal persons
arc alavo owners, as they have an unques-
tionaulo riuiit to be under tho laws of t heir
States, and denounce any and every at
tempt to interfcro with their privileges in
this respect. Congress assured them that
tho war had but 'one purpose, and that
was tho preservation of the Union, with
the rights and institutions of the several
Stated unimpaired. Accoptjng this plcdgo
in good faith, they ranged themselves on
the aide of tho Government, and withstood
tho temptations that sought to allure them
into the ranks of rebellion, Their firm
and dovotod loyalty is to be commended;"
but how is it regarded by tho ultra faction
now urging the Government into the adop
tion of cxtrcmo measures ? These men, say
they, arc slave-owners tho rebellion is a
slaveholders rebellion, and tho loyal men
of tho Border States aro therefore little
better than open enemies so long as they
demand security and protection for their
slave property. We will treat slavery as
the great criminal, notwithstanding somo
professedly loyal man hava an interest in
tho institution, and rcquiro protection for
their rights. The rule with those who
arguo in this way is, that a slaveholder is
necessarily a rebel, whether ho is flighting
against tho Union or maintains a loyal
position. ' The aim of tho radical politic
cians is apparently to drive tho loyal Bord
er States into open rebellion, in order to
substantiate the theory that slavery is the
cause of tho war, and to destroy that rem
nant of respect for constitutional obligat
ion which still attaches to "tho people of'
the Northern States. This result accom
plished, and tho extremists .would bo en
abled to point to tho defection of every
slave State in tho Union as incontroverti
ble evidence that slavery is tho cau3 of tho
war. and demand with exultation that a
blow bo struck at tho groat criminal. If
this is not the object of the Abolitionists,
why arc thoy so anxious to drive off the
Border States? Why bo ready toineroaso
tho-number of the enemies of tho Govern
ment T ,
Every lover of his country must feel tho
deepest sympathy for tho loyal mon of
Kentucky, Virginia and Missouri, who
have accomplished more, atd endured
more for. the Union than all tho Abolition
ists put together. Instead of weakening
their moral or physical powcr our efforts
should be directed to strengthening both
aud above all they should not be punish
ed for their constitutional rights. But the
! Abolitionists seem to be studying how they
and degrade tho loyal
Upholders, and furinish them with sub
iEtautial rcasons for rush,11S ulto tho ai,,ns
Vl u,u 1CUC1 """"""'"J-
It the union coutu no restorou to-morrow,
without tho destruction of slavery,
this Abolitionists would interposo objections.
No "one can have obsorvcd"their course
without seeing that their object is to des
troy slavery by tho uso of tho war power,
or, failing iu that, to divorca tho No rthcrn
States from connection with tho instution
by a dissolution of the Union. Just at
this time their faith in the ability of tho
Government to crush rebellion is wavcriug;
and their policy is to increase tho enemies
of the Union, and the power of tho Con
federacy, by driving off tho Border States
then the next step will be to insist upon
upiversal emancipation and arming of the
negroes as the last resort, and when that
fails, they will say : ''this contest is hope
less. Wo ''cannot subjugate tho South.
Let us consent "to dissolution, and thank
Heaven that we ara'rid of tho great sin
of slavery.'' This is ovidently tho pro
gramme of tho radical paity, and the only
way of preventing tho consummation of
their djsunion plot is to guard against the
firit stop in it, by maintaining the Consti
tution at all hazards...

Tho leading Republicans who rushed to
Springfield from tho day it was ascertained
that Mr. Lincoln was elected, up until tho
day ho took his departure for Washington,
labored to conviuco him that tho Southern
rebellion was a trifling undertaking, and
persuaded him that thcro was no troublo
of any cousequonco to bo apprehended,
and that there was up to that, period, ''no
body hurt." A few months residence at
tho Capital convinced him to tho contrary,
and sinco then he has hooded neither their
expostulations, throatnings, nor advico.
From the fatal day that thoy succeeded in
forcing tho Prcsidont to tight tho balllo of
Bull Run, ho has discarded their advico

Tlicir notions of the efficacy of emancipa

In tho conception of our ioroign auairs
tho majority of tho party in power seem
to bo as deficient as they aro in compre

their recent performances in relation to
tho capture of tho rebel embassadors, Ma
son and Slidell. As soon as Capt. Wilkc3'
exploit was telegraphed, thrco fourths of
tho Abolition press of tho country became
frantic with cxultatiou. His conduct waB

by a voto of thanks in Congress ; ho ,was
dined and treated aud toasted by tho Ab

culogium. In reply to tlio cousccvativo

Only last week the oxtrcmo Abolition press
of the couutry was groaning with this sort
of vaporing, but now tho samo class arc
dodging about to reconcile them solves to
tho ueccssity which compelled tho gov
ernment to acc'odo to England's demand.
Now the "giving up" of tlio rebels is, with
theso sagacious papers, a piece of admi
rable diplomacy, It-is very good, but
thoro never should havo existed a necessity
'Mr. Seward, whom thoy say "looks
farther into a niillstono than tho man who
makes it," ought to havo set the rebels free
immediately after their capturo; this plan
was suggested by less sagacious men than
ho is represented io bo. But perhaps ho
retained them in order to mako hTs mark
as a great diplomatist ; if so, ho has not
succeeded . " His aUmirablo corrcspon
