t ejin with the word we Who are we ? thai

ds er will be found m the ellons ol thoe ;
w ho, at the lormation of our Government, j
were opposed to Democratic form, who j
predated f it, downfall in less than half a ;
century, who boldly maintained that the j
common people wanted the intelligence,
fctabiiity, independence and patriotism, in-
difcpeusab.'e for self government, the rich !
und v.e txMierboro should govern ; and it is
those men who seHherasel ves up for we,
and who represent themselves as cooping
to conquer. Who would thought that, even
during the life of a remnant of the- Revolo
tionary Father-, who only live to link the
living with the dead, we would have an I
upstart aristocracy who dare to designate j
themselves by the imposing name of we; ,
and an upstart aristocracy too who, presum
icg upon the ignorance and stupidity of;
those to whom ihey deny the qualification
of self-government, insult them by not only
a nams bat claim for themselves superiori
ty ; and also prononnce inferiority and con
tempi upon those whom they stoop lo con
quer, la there an American citizen, proud
of his country, and proud of his free and
equal institutions, who would not hold in
contempt and scorn, the vile wretch who
would dare attempt to establish an Order in
ihi? country, designating themselves from
the great body of American citizens by the
title we, or any other title.
Bui who are the rag-baron aristocracy, .
. who persist in styling themselves we, and
thus stoop to conqoer? They are the bank
ers, monopolists, loafers, gamblers, and
black-legs, wolves who lap the blood of
honat toil, and eat the bread they never
earned, (I except the honest who are de
ceived.) The answer will be found in the
fac:r that. when all the coxcombs, all the
fops, all ihe dandies all the loafers, all the
dronas, ail the loungers, and all the Repub

And, when our country was invaded, and
a second struggle, ensued to maintain our
Independence, called every patriot to stand
by his country, we were among the musing;
we were again on the side of the tories and
British, or Her si an p. '
Sir, add to the collection I have before
supposed, all the surviving tories of the
Revolntion, and all the surviving tories of
our la9t war, and ninety-nine in a hundred
of them will be found in the front ranks ol
we. The Democratic parly in uphoding
General Jackson in his acis for defending
his country we were opposed to the meas
ure, some of we voted for him because we
dare Lot do otherwise, but it was the most
nauseous dose ever we had to swallow, and
some of we skulked and did not vote al a!!.
So it ever has been when a political ques
tion or measure has interested this country,
which had a British side to it, we have al
ways been found on the side of the British.
Who is it then, we stoop to conquer ? It is
an enemy more obnoxious to us than those
who fired our borders, desolated our fron
tiers, murdered, indiscriminately, men, wo
men and children, in our last war.- It is
the Democracy we stoop to conquer; and in
order, that the Democracy may, May con
qnered we stoop to conquer the Democratic
institutions of this country.. The spoils of
a political victory over the democracy would
be only for a short or limited time; but a
victory over the principles of Democracy,
over the Democratic institutions of the
country, and the establishment of monarch
al measures and a system of monopoly,
would keep the Democracy conquered.
It is for thee we stoop to conquer !
ir, I wish it was in my power to present
thi republican Abolition principle to the
full view of every Democrat, and every
lover of human liberty and human eqna.ity
in tins widespread Republic, I know it
wuu;d spread patriotic indignation far ai.d
wide. A frown of contempt and repulc-ion
for modern, Republican Abolitionism would
rest on the brow of every true Democrat
who has a heart for his country. It is time
that admonishes me that I must look more
to the conclusion of my remarks than to

conclusion be in the shape of an apnea! to
Ihe L)mocracy ol this union, lace to lace,
it would be to say to them, that they are
now engaged in one of the most important
political contests, which involves every
principle for and against which they have

taken an orphan to raise, who, by the way
was rather underlined. He had imbibed
very s'.rict views on religious matters, how
ever, and onced afked his adopted mother
if she didn't think it wrong for the old far
mers to come to church and fall asleep,
pajing no better regard to the service. She
replied she did. Accordingly, before going
to church the next Sunday he filled his
pocket with apples. One bald headed old
man, who invariably went to sleep during
the sermon, particularly attracted his atten
tion. Seeing him at last nodding and giv
ing nasal evidence of being in the ' land of
dreams," he hauld off and took the astound

The Conduct of Oor Soldiers.
While the army of the Union now in the
is unquestionably one of the most i
brave and gallant armies that the world .
has ever seen, wn may also with safety af- j
firm that it is an army of men who have j
personal pride and the spirit and conduct j
of gen'lemen. Exceptions may indeed be
pointed out here and there and we have
from time to lime evidence of gross viola
tions on the part ol our men of the rules of
right and wrong, aside from military disci
pline. But these exceptions form no suffi
cient number to change ihe general truth
that the army is an army of self-respecting
men, and ttiat wherever they go they will
prove the truth af the character given them.
We recur to an illustra'ion of this, which
it was impossible to publish at the time of
its occurrence, twp months ago, in coiue
qoence of the regulation forbidding a-iy
public allusion to the army movements
across the Potomac at Washington. A par
ty ol ladies and gentlemen had visited Ma
nassas, and returning to Alexandria too late
for the last boat, were brought by rail to the
Virginia end of the Long Bridge. It was
the intention ol Col. M'Callum, the able
railway chief, to cross the bridge with the
car, but the head of a division of tho army
was just coming ofT from the bridge, and it
was necessary to wait its passage The
Long fcridge has a narrow carriage track at
the side of the rail track, the latter being
laid a usual on cross ties. Hour after hour
passed and the division poured on, an end
less train of regiments and wagons Al
nearly nine o'clock it was said the entire
body would not be through till midnight,
and thereupon two ladies, accompanied by
gentlemen, started to cross the 4ridge on
toot. A large wagon, overtnrned on the
road, and the small party taking the rail
track, proceeded on fool towards Washington.
For the entire distance, more than a mile, j welcome foreign intervention. This now

An Infnmonj Avowal.
The Toledo Blade admits that the passage
of the Crittenden Compromise by the last
Congress would have preserved the peace .
of the country and maintained the Union
intact, but avows that the Republicans
could not support that Compromise because
it would have been 'buying off the South j
with new concessions,' to have done which
says the Blade, would have been degrading
to Republicans, &c. This is a precious
confession, truly ! The Republican leaders
refuse to pass the Crittenden Compromise
not because its terms were unfair or unjust
to either section of the Ur.ion, not because
it conseded to the South more. than she was
entiled to under the Constitution but sim
ply because it conflicted with the doctrines
of the Chicago Platform, and to yeild one
jot or title ot that platform would have de
graded the Republican party. Had the Crit
tenden Compromise been adopted, we
would not to-day have a dissevered Union
and a civil war. But the Republican lead
ers could not afford the sacrifice. They
said, let. the dissolution come ; the country
may go to the devil - but the Chicago
platform, that " Loly ol holies," must be
preserved. North Wat.

It is remarkable how abolition and seces
sion have gone hand in hand together ever
since the war began, and how ihey are yet
linked together.. The main stay of this
wicked rebellion has been the hope to the
secession leaders; and now the main hope
of the abolition di'unionists in preventing
this w ar into an abolition crusade, is foreign
At the close of the late abolition conven
tion in Boston, Wendell Phillips stated that
if Abraham Lincoln did not issue a procla
mation within six months declaring freedom
to the slaves, Louis tNapoleon would do it,
and that, in such case he (Phillips) would
ident Lincoln have been n uered than this

women of this sort, in a speech at the con

as Jeff. Davis. Garrison held there was
fomn difference between the two a choice
the slaves free the latter to enable them to
sustain their rebellion. Jacob Barker, of

The Crisis on Ts !
Fools belch out tiousense ami play the
part of fariocs braggarts, spurning the ad-
monitions of the wise and prndent, the mad
dening fctorm gathers blackness and dark
ness and the deafening thunders- burst
over their heads, and the vid ligh-nirjgs
play at their feet, before they can see and
feel the danger, or admit the propriety, or
necessity of seeking a place of refuge and
security. Thus it is with thousands of poor
deluded soul at ihe present time. The
storm has been gathering for more than 12.
long months, and the cry has constantly
been. there is no danger," yet when men
dared to say, that danger threatened them
in future, they were tpolted, regarded aa
traitors and eyed as suspicious characters, who
ought to be reperted lo the Military amhsr
ities, arrested, ar d sent to Richmond to be
tried, condemned, and executed for treason
against the Southern Conjcltracy. The lead
ers in ihi terrible revolntion have cried
peace ar.d safety, when sudJen destraction
was at our very doors If the leaders in this
awful tragedy have knowinely and wilfully,
deceived the people, then they merit the
unmitigated onathamas of all Heaven and
earth, throughout all time and eternity; if
they have done it ignorantly, then they
should be held np as brainless objects of
pity, -corn, and contempt to the whole
civilized world, as blazing beacons of ail
stupid unprincipled, political adventurers,
through all coming time.
' Who is so skeptical, or stultified, a to

then promised lo lead them to independence,

Have they done it? The wide world
answers No I Where is our Independence?
Freedom ?- Prosperity? Glory? Honor?
National immortality? Aye, where are the
brave, heroic leaders themselves? Politi
cians timed Generals, and Generals turned
cowards, or haye proven themselves totally
incompetent io accomplish the mighty
work they promised to perfo'rm. '
Not a single promise that the politicians
made to the people has been met. In the
! Cie"ce of political maneuvering and swin
dling, they were accomplished proficients,
but when ihey girded on the sword and
went out to battle, they proved themselves
the veriet of dol's. With but few excep
tions, what have you done? They have
fallen back from place, lo place, and made
so many surrenders that there are now but
few more important points in ihe whole
Southern Confederacy to yield.
