the Cooper Institute, New York, on Thurs
day evening. The crowd wa& so immense,
and tho zeal and iuipaticnco of tho multi
tud so evident, that the meeting was or
ganized long before tlio Lour appointed
Hon. Atuos Kendall was proposed and

and prolonged cheers. On assuming the
hair ho addressed tho meeting in a brief
and eloquent speech on tho situation of the
ountry and in favor of Gen. McClcllan,
His address was followed by loud cheers
for McOlellan, tho song "McClcllan and
the Union" was sung, tho band played
Hail Columbia, the secretary read the
names of tho vico presidents and secreta
ries, and then tho following; resolutions
itero read and adopted by acclamation :
Whereas, A fratricidal war, original
Dg in a,disregard of tha maxims and
warnings of our lathers, is desolating tho
land and threatening tho permanent dis
ruption of our Federal Union s
Aid whereas, The presont administra
tion by their fatal policy in tho conduct of
tho war ; by their iufriugemont upon State
and individual rights; by a general sus
pension of the writ of habeas corpus, and
substituting military for civil courts j and
above all, by employing the army to sup
press tho freedom of election?, and forcing
governments of minorities upon the people
of the State?, I1.13 not only protracted the i
war indefinitely, bringing upon tho coun
try interminable taxation and financial
ruin, but has created general alarm for the
integrity of the States and the liberty of
their oitizons, all threatened to bo swallow
ed up ia a fanatical despotism, the worst
f all governments :
And whereas, The country has no guar
anteo for tho speedy and succecsful termi
nation of the war under the imbecile and
changeable management of the present ad-
mi m juration througn any otuer means
than by a change oi men at tho coming
presidential election : iherclorc
Resolved, That wo earnestly invite all
ur fellow citizens, of whatever political or

-oerted etlort to place at tne ncau ol our
government a man in whoso wisdom, in
tecriiT and firmness the country may re
ply with hope Inr a Gpeedy suppression of
the rebellion, tlie cessation ol bloodshed
and the luaintainnnco ol the Union which
our fathers bequeathed to us a Union o(
Independent Slates and free people, ore
tud by the Constitution, and to be main
tained only by its observance. (Applause.)
Ilesolvcd, That we recnguize iu George
13, McClcllan (tremendous hecring, re
peatud again and again,) qualifications
which eminently fit him to be the delievcrer
nd saviour of our country ; and we held it
to ho the paramount duty of all patriotic
citizen and organizations to abandon all
disturbing questions and rally around him
mi the destined preserver of our constitu
tional liberties. (Renewed onthuiiasm,and
cries of ''Dra70 !")
The meeting wai then addressed by
Hon. 11. D. Jaeob, Lieut. Governor, of
Kontucky, and Gen. A. U. Norton, editor
of tho last Unitn paper printed in Texas,
after which, amid the most deafening cben
for Gen. McCUllan and "Lille Mic," tho
Gen. Grant in Comand.
Gen. Grant having been appointed com
mander of the Federal armies, let us hope
that he will command them that, hear
after, military movements will bo guided
by military knowlcdgo, and that the lives
of our soldiers and tho destiny of our
country will no longer be used as dieo in
partisan games for political distinction and
polf as counters in ambition's struggles
and intrigues. "His hoadquarter3 aro to

it be. In a position to survey the whole
field, ho will bo ablo to detect mistakes,

Enclosed please find two dollars, tho
amount of my bill for this year's Oolum
liu Democrat I wm in hopes whon 1
forwarded you my subscription last year,
that thcro would ho an end to this cruel,
civil war, beforo nnotharycar cointnenoed;
but it seems not to ho so ordained Thro'
tho wicked and cruel polioy of this Ad
ministration tho rebellion is now more
formidable than cvor before. Its effeot
line been to conccutrato anl intonaify the
southern mind sn their efforts at resist
nnco, and divide public opinion north. It
is now conceded, that this Abolition war
is being prosecuted, not to restore tho Un
ion 5 but to dctroy ono of tho domestic
institutions reserved to tho States, and es
tablish n "Constitution as it oitsht to be."
Wo Democrats know well from our
knowledge of the early history of the Fed'
crl Party what it will be. Tho design
is to build up a monarchy in harmony
with tho principles of tho early Federal
ists of which the Abolition parly of to
day is an off ohoot dressed up in a new
name. Dutaohango of name docs .not
change their principles, Their principles
to-day are the same as they wero under
the Administration of the elder Adams.
Tho Democratic doctrine of State rights,
freedom of speech and tho press, the right
of trial by jury, and that no man shall be
arrested' without sufficient cause founded
on oath or ntlircuation, is as violently as
sailed and repudiated now us then. Tho
only obstaclo in their way is)the Demo
cratic party tho defenders of tho Consti
tution and law. Ilenco, their great offorts
by every device of corruption and arbitra
ry power to break it down, by corrupting
prominent Democrats and using the army
to coerce the people, and trample on the
saorcd rights of tho elective franchise
The energies of this administration aro
moro particularly directod to this object
than fighting the rebels. Ilenco, I feel
that free Governtmet under the Constitu
tion is endangored nd that we shall ulti
mately lose our own liberties. For my
part, 1 have little confidence in carrying
the election next full as long as this Ad
ministration has control ot tho army
What was dono in Delawa
Kentucky, and tho other d
shire, will bo repeated next fall. If so
all will bo lost ; and with it tho Govern
ment of our Fathers. J
Tho only way that thcao usurpations !
can be prevented if at all will be fori
the Democratio party and all Cinserva
tivo friends of tho Constitution to organizo
immediately, and in sueh away as
. I i , I . rr. . .

beat a retreat. Th community was
thrown into a great excitement, and huud
reds of persons were gathering ready to
defend themselves and private property.
The democratic party ii the dom
inant parly iu this county aud have
but one paper published, and, while
thoy have buffered great indignities for
several years from their opposition, yet
are willing that thoy ithall havo their full
right under the laws of the land, but firm

rights, and should this bo refused, retaliu
lion will be their last remedy. Wo aro
pericewy wining mat the party in power
should maintain their character for law

party U fit to rule this country. They
may succeed in creating bloodshed and
revoluliou, but they cau never mtcrotho

Unless tho men of property and influen
co iu tho Abolition party havo less nemo
than ever their oni.oncuta credit them
with, thoy must begin to regard with alarm !
somo of tho poaitivo results of their wick-1
cil teachings. Wo published on Monday
moriiiug last a report of a Deinmocratio 1
meeting at La Port, Indiana, together'
with soino remarks from ono of tho leading
organs of the party in tho West, aud a
letter from Mr. Vallandighani, which I
Should ODCn thnir nvnstn tlin I'rms.iniinnno I
of their revolutionary acts. It is cloar !
that the masses of the Dutnocratio party
havo resolved not to oublllit to lliob law
without strikini; eomo preltv hard blows
in seii-ueienco, xno auacus upon news
paper offices, and upon individuals, whioh I
navo neon so tioquent in tho last low
months, must now ceaso; and tho Demo
cracy liitcnd to tako this matter in their
own hands at every haiard.
Evorywhcro this foiling haa grown up,'
anu, irom one cnu ol tlio JNorth to tho oth-
J n P i V I
Democrats to protect themselves and their
propcrty. Tuis de.tcrminatiou is much'
moio rcsoluto than would bu inferred from!
the tono of our press. From tho begining
of our troublut tho leaders of tho party
havo coun-selled patieuco nnd forboaranco
aud adherence to laiv and order-, but aot
quiescneo has been mistaken for cowar
dieo, and thcro is no longer any reason or
hopo that our rights will be respected, un
less maintained by tho strong arm. This
will bo done at whatever nobt, Unles3 a
people aro willing and ready to defend
their rights at every extremity, they aro
fit only to bo (dares, and whon tho mem
bers of ono politioal party in this couutry
undortako to rtilo by violonco and outrago
and to treat their opponents as nliou en
emies, whosu existence depends barely up-
ui, ouuu mite, tuey rnubi expect EUOIl a
no reeiprooatetl. This
whioh is now ranidlv
1 Bming ground. Tho Hemoeraov havo
, been taught by many bitter TesS., tfiat
tn0y aro more odious to their Abolition
neighbors than tho rebel armies and everv
dastardly assault and insult upon thorn ii
nppiauuoa ana .even euoouraged by tha
highest as well as by tho puniest -p&rajito
ia offi!. What now outrgo are in ttoro
for us can ba but a stibjcot for ootijeotun,
but tho impression ii -gonoral that the)
will only bo limited by apprehension til .
(oat. Under such circumstanios it would
bo odd, iudud, if ho menus wero taken t
resist and resent attacks which aro thui
imminent and unless somothing bo doit
by llio Administration, organizations fot
Bolf-dofcnco will naturally bo overywhon
formed, and blow for blow will bu given,
If such a prospect bo gratifying to U,
"moncy-blo'atcd aristoctats" who Iisti
enrichrd llicmiclvcs at tho countrys ci.
pense, thoy can easily have it rcnliied .
but If they prefer to have peace, order aid
sceurity, they must at onco inko measurei
to hove "tho laws enforced" nt homo, ti
well as in tho South. The remody is jB
the hands of tho dominant pirty aud tin
Administration, nnd their choice - had bet.
tor be mado without much dolay."
The new eall for 200,000 moro mon for

inquirici, it was said that another cil! ,
would probably succeed immediately oo
the fulfillment of the present.
