Tho public men who do not hesitato to

We bolievo that this is not alleged.
Thoy aro to be found among the bitterest
batera of Constitutional Democracy
among the class of men who have profes
sed an uncompromising devotion to the
Union ever since tho fall of Sumter, nud
displayed their patriotism by suspecting
end denouncing the majority of Northern
Democrats as traitors to their country.
When tho antecedents of the extreme
antislavcry mcu aro considerd, their
sudden conversion to ardent Unionism is
ioniewbat suspicious. Their fidelity to the
Constitutioiaud tho Union was not con
spicuous before the commencement of the
war. On tho contrary, they were unwil

the sako of tha Union. "PcrUh a hun
