Tho as-crtion in the first paragraph is
untrue, at least it is so far as concerns lo
calities where couits are open and tho av
enues to justice unobilrueted ; whore tho
laws define crime and fix the punishment:
and whore any protenso of Constitutional
and civil rights is allowed. No man of
sense can claim that in yallaiidigham'i
case there was any necessity of a mid
night raid, which should 'quickly' prevent
tho consummation of any Act. He was ar
rested, not for what he was about to do,
but for a speech already made, and for
words spoken only, Uurnsides' fpecial
pleading in no Way touches the case. It
would seem that he reasons no better than
bo fights, when left to his own head.
As to the second paragraph it is abso
lutely untrue. Witness tho UevolutioEa-
ry war, the war of 1812, the Mexican
war all successful, without "the exeicise
of that power." Burnsides had better
read history a little while.

Eiiiiply staling the tact liberate all the
latent heat of the popular sympathy and
g0od will. Some veterans of the Army of
the Potomac were tho first
th(ir old eotirnnndur, then calling upnn
the Governor at his office, aud they fairly
besieged the executive chambers with
shouts for "Little Mac." The General
was finally compelled to show himself at
the window, where he shook hands with
thu eager and cscited soldiers, who pres
sed up to him with cheers and loud bles
sings, and ghddcDod heir hearts with a
few of thoso simple and soldier like words
which no man is sura to Gnd or so frank
to speak as ho. From the Governor's
ofiico tho crowd, increasing as it went,
followed the General to the house of .Mr.
1 ('orn'"S. wll'oh also they carried by storm
that the object of this amicable onslaught
! was left to himself, '1 ho respite, however
was brief. The city authorities and tho
fire compauies combined for a decisive
and organized campaign, and deputations
waited upon the General, a few hours be
1 fore his intended departure with the assu
raueo that it would be iu vain for him to
attempt to leave Albany till he had seen
the people face to face, and civcu them '

room and verge enough to express all
that they lelt lor the soldier and the mail
whom "Loyal ICagUCrs" delight to honor
with their fanatical abuse. The General
was reluctantly compelled to surrender at!
discretion. Tho boat in which ho was tc
leave at B o ciock was detained by her J

work of two or three hours, was a tribute'
far more eloquent than weeks of elaborate
preparation could have made it to tho hold
which General McClollan has acquired,
upon tho affections and thi respect of his
fellow countrymen It was interesting to ,
see how little ofa political color the wholo

sporadic shouts wore heard lor '"the next

of the popular voice was hearty and con-

Genciul McClollan has scon as much of (

most people, but I venture to say that this

in his memory as one of the most moving
I because one of the n:o.t genuine and spon
