'"notwithstanding tho deranged condition ot
the country and the' general prostration of
business tho Columbia Democrat, is
prospering in a high degreo, and through
tho partiality of generous friends going
on to ttill greater prosperity.
As a political journal, a faithful and
fearless defender of the great fundamental
principles of tbo National Democracy
enunciated by Thomas Jefferson, sanctified
by Andrew Jackson, and to-day practised
by their legitimate followers and upon
whom alone depends the hope of our be

Union, the Laws and the Constitution. Id
the present great and terrible crisis of our
once happy countty now humileated at
home and dishonored abroad it has been
zny duty to perform no unimportant part,
and to bear a full share of its responsibil
ities. Nominated last season as I was for
a District office, by tho noble Dcmooracy
of Columbia, tbe only true "Union Party"
of tho country, pledged to maintain the
Laws, support tbe Government, uphold

most gloriously did they ratify that action
at tho ballot-box, and triumphantly vin

And here, iu the Halls of Legislation, in
which I indite this hasty address, and in

the occupancy of John Hancock, in which
he was seated when ho appended bis name

and to preserve inviolate my Constitutional
obligation as the people's Representative.
For this purpose, it is the siinplo duty
of every legal citizon, to vote men and

by providing liberally for tbo bravo sol

Wo givo from tho telegraphic report of
tho proceedings of tho United States Son

marks of Senators MoDougal of California
and Cowan of Pennsylvania, upon the bill
for the confiscation of rebel property. It
will bo seen tbat Mr. Cowan, (although
classed as a Ilepublican), is not in favor of
tho extreme and impraeticablo views of
the Abolitionists.
"Mr. DOUGALL, (Cal.) resumed hit speech. He quo

to any confiscation of private property, lie contended
tbat toe provision in relation to freeing tho slaves was

slanders upon the Democracy of this State,
copie'd and reechoed by tho Republican

an examination into the character and
past course of our assailants and the ten
dency of their position and avowals, with

of tho Republican party in this State its
purposo and its method of accomplishing
them. Indeed, that paper has been their
dictator, and they obeyed its commands as
'subserviently ' as ever slave obeyed those
of bis master. Now, a careful esaraina-
nation of tho courso of tbat trcasonablo

gent mind tbat a dissolution of the Union
is the object and result for which it has
ong labored and still labors. For years
previous to tho outbreak of tbo rebellion,
tbe hostility to the Union, tbo Constitution
and tbe Flag, to which it now sings hypo

From the Tribuno. Deo. 17.
If it (tho Declaration of Independence)
justified the secession from the British cmO
piro ot tlirco millions ot colonists in 1770,
wo do not see why it would not justify the
secession of five millions of Southrons from
the Union in 1861.
Such was tho Tribune's position up to
tbo openiug of the present civil war, which
it did so much to bring about. It favor
ed Secession as tho means of accomplish
ing its darling object of a dissolution of
tbe Union as the thoitest and easiest

utter destruction of tho Union a complcto
breaking up of tbo institutions which tho
honest men in this oountry who have la
bored to establish and maintain, and which
honest men now labor to rcstoro and re
establish. That sheet has sought to broak
up the Union, has denounced tbo Constitu
tion, and derided the flag of our country,
until it and its fellows, North and South,
havo produced a civil war, and now it re
joices in tho belief that its work has been
Bucocssful. Who arc traitors, if suoh wri
ters aro not, and who deservo the halter,
if tho "moral traitors" of the Tribuno do
not? And yet, in tbo faco of this unblush

eously wo bopo) tbo downfall of tbe Uni

with their treason, while honest patriots
arc sent to a military prison for daring to
differ from a Republican administration.
Now tbo Tribune has long afforded tho
truo index to the feelings and purposes of
tho controlling clement of (ho Republican
party. That party, in every Northern
Stato, has followed its lead with unerring
fidelity sometimes closely and at others
at a distance, but always with an eye to
the ultima to accomp'ishmcnt of the qbjects
and purposes avowpd. It has been so in
this State, as every intelligent mau knows.
And it is so now. the men who control
tho party machinery here aro working it
with a view to carrying out the plans of
the Tribune faction. Take their courso
