Subject to the Decision of the Democratic
National Contention.
The War 'Democrat) Embraci Aboliticaism:
We hare often ex nosed tha identity of
doctrine between tha Black Republicans
and those who assume the unmeaning ap
pellation of War Democrats. These two
parties profess to be hostile to each other
in political opinion, while, in fact, they are
virtually in ctoie alliance upon all material
points., l no only oosiacie in tneir com
, plete affiliation that ever existed has at last
. been removed. The Hon. James Brooks,
in Congress, and the New York World, in
Us editorial columns, have almost simulta.
neooslj pronounced Abolitionism to be one
of the dogmas of the War Democracy. The
linn Jamoa Rrnnk and 'lh I7) ? am both
the acknowledged representatives oi the
. War Democracy , so far as an individual
.sod a public journal can represent a party
that is unreal, without distinctive principle,
i -t
lore. We may, therefore, hereafter look
upon a War Democrat as , an Abolitionist,
and, truth to tell, it is with a sensation of
relief that we find the shuffling time-server
and political hermaphrodite in his appro-
' nrialrt nlaee. . r
t i
, In various political campaigns, the De
mocracy have been induced to leasue
tberaielves with those renegades who, dtf
setting every principle of Democracy, have
ixDondeatlv appropriated its name dishon
ored with a prefix that cancels its virtue
and its meaning.
The alliartce has in every case been pre
judicial to Democratic interests. But this
last bold plav into the hands of our adver-
saries cannot fail to snap in twain the last
feeble link and none ever existed that was
net due to a similarity ol tames. The War
uemocrats nave paia aomage 10 me great
evil that has brought misfortune upon the
land, and prostrating themselves before the
Abolition idol, they have coniumated the
last act of their apostacy.
We can show no cause why the unholy
nuptial should not go on. Better that War
Democracy should be at ones and forever
merged into Abolitionism, to share its for
tune for better or for worse, than pollute
the pore Democracy by a questionable con
Dection. The Democracy have now no
choice but to throw off the incubus, and
follow the straightforward path traced by
the immutable principles of their party.
What Is Coin; cn at fort Soya!.
: r Tbe Administration, in its humane efforts
to elevate the character of the African and
civilize them with the white people, two
years ago benevolently sent from Massa
chusetts to Port Royal, South Carolina, at
ihe expense of the whole people of the.
United States, a few .hundred spinsters to
educate, civilize and refine the contraband!
at that place." The New Hampshire Patriot
of the 4th of October, gives the result of
this very, benevolent experiment ol Mr.
Lincoln in the following paragraph. ,
"Priva'.B advices from Port Royal say,
that many nf the female Abolitionists who
went to Port Royal to teach theli'tle niggers
how to read aad pray, have been obliged
within a few months in abandon their black
charges and open nurseries on their own
private account An officer informed qs
recently that no less than sixty four white
spinsters nau contriDsteu to me population
in and aboot Port Royal harbor. . The cli
mate seems to favor population even more
than the production of Sea Island cotton by
paid negro labor..
"lie information furnished ns by the
officers concerning the sixty-four little ma
lattoes, has bees cofirmed by the testimony

Whenever one gets to talking with a Re
publican, about the policy or justice of this
war, one is always met, , as a last resort,
with the assertion "But they fired at onr
flag." Grant that this was wrong, we have
in. return an inquiry to make "Is it any
worse to fire at our flag, than it is to fire In
to our Constitution V The flsg U bat the
emblem of our Constitutional liberties ; the
Constitution is that substance, which, when
observed, secures as in the actual posse
tion and enjoyment of our . liberties. ,No
man is sworn to snpport the jlag ; all men,
who hold official position, are sworn to sup
port the Constitution and the very solemn
sanction of the oath in the one case, and its
absence in the oifier, ts'proof of the trans
cendent importance of the one as compared
with the other. The flag is an emblem;
the Constitution is substance. TheConMU
lution bodies forth the substance of our lib
erties, and as intended to surround them
with such impregnable safeguard that nn
hal!od ambition shall not dare to lay its
impious band upon them. The flag is but
a visible eigti that such a Constitution ex
ists, and is as much leas than the Consti
tution, as the shadow is less than the sub
stance which it reflects.
If, therefore, it be an offence to fire at the
flag, it ii a terrible crime to fire into the
Constitution ; and to this crime as such,. is
superadded the infamy of perjury. To tear
one sentence or word from that Constitution
is to aseault Liberty itself ; and to fire into
it, is to bo come the assassin of Liberty.
And now we take upon ourselves to say,
that, while the Rebels, at Sumter fired at
the flag, Mr. Lincoln, in his sphere, has
fired into the Constitution, and has literally
attempted its destruction. If the Rebels, for
firing at the flag, deserved to be devasted
by war; what punishment should be visited
upon tbe President for firing into the Con
stitution I
Calling Democrats Traitors Actionable.
We publish the following as a warning
to intemperate Republicans, and to show
Democrats that they have tbe law on their
side. We quote from the New Albany
(Indiana) Ledger.
At the recent terra of the Scott County
Circut Court, Clark ced Kiraberlin for
calling him a traitor. The facts are about
as follows : In the month of Augnat last,
Ferris, a Democrat, was endeavoring to get
op a subscription by the citizens to aid in
making up a company for the Union army.
Clark had subscribed fifty dollars, and be
and Ferris were solicit wg the p?r?ons who
came into town to pot down their names for
such amounts as they could spare. Among
others Ferris approached Kimberlin. a vio
lent Republican, who said he had do money
to spare. Some conversation was bad
about loyalty, when Ferris said the names"
on the subscription paper were a pretty
good test of loyally. At this Kiraberlin
became very angry, and jut at this time
Clark attempted to speak to him, but had
only said tbe words, "Uncle Dan," then
Kimberlin turned upon him in a very angry
manner and said : 'I want nothing to. do
with yon, yon are a disloyal man and a
traitor to your country !' Refusing to re
tract, Clark sued him for the slander, and
the suit resulted in a judgment for two
hundred and seventy dollars damages and
costs. The judgraeut was based opoo the
verdict of a jury composed of men of all
If we should recover an equal amount for
each time the term traitor has been applied
to us by the nigger worshipping fraternity
of ibis town, for sustaining the Constitution
and the Union unimpaired, the whole real
and personal properly would not begin to
liquidate our claims. As that is the only
arment our "loyal friend" of despotic
power hate, i: would be a pity to take it
from them. Let ibera enjoy fi in peace..

-A ckrtaw 'Rev." Mr. Gilbert, a gunpow
der "War Cbrifta in," recently declared, th
the Connecticut Legislature, of which he is
a member, that 'for one, I am not afraid
to say, that I had rather lit down and die in
my tracks to day, than tee any lestoralfon of
the Union 01 Hwas " He is iast the rasn tr

' The Federal troops under Gen. Gillmore
have met with a disaster in Florida. The
expedition sent recently to Jacksonville, af
ter capturing that place advanced . into the
interior of the State. Jacksonville is near
the northern boundry of Florida and stands
on the border of a bay forming the rrouth
of St John's River. This river flows north
and curves around to the east within a
short distance of Jacksonville. A railroad
runs west from Jackionsville to Tallahassee
which is almost two hundred miles distant.
The Federal expedition was sent along
this -railroad to capture Tallahassee, which
is the capital ol the State, with the inten
tion of establishing a new Governmeat
there.' For a few miles it kept along the
border of the river, but as that river gradu
ally curted to the soothwafd, the expedi
tion following the line of the railroad, reach
ed into the interior. The supply boats and
transports also sailed up the river to the
place where the railroad left it, about five
miles from Jacksonville, and there estab
lished a supply post.
The expedition under General Seymour
wa s about six thousand strong, principally
negroes. For two or threo days it advanc
ed without finding an enemy, and on the
20th inst., (last Saturday week) 'was near
Olustee, a siation on the railroad fifty miles
west of Jacksonville. Here the enemy sur
prised it, and after a fierce contest of three
hours the Federal troops withdrew leaving
all their dead and a great part of their
wounded in the enemy's hands. Five guns
were captured and a large number of pris-
oners. The toial loss will reach fifteen
hundred. Being defeated, the expedition
retreated as quickly as possible to Jackson
ville, the enemy pursuing. On reaching
the St. John's river the supply post near
Jacksonville was broken up and the Feder
al force withdrew into the town. A steam
transport which was aground was burned
to prevent her falling into the enemy's
hands. The Confederates at last accounts
were but five miles from Jacksonville.
The real extent of tbe disaster is not
known, the steamer bringing the intelli
gence having sailed too soon to procure any
details. Gen. Gillmore seized all the letters
of passengers to prevent the news leaking
out. He also placed Gen . Seymour under
arrest for his failure, though why he should
suffer we are at a loss to conceive. Three
hundred wounded have been taken to Hil
ton Head. This defeat has put an end to
all hopes of overrunning Florida.
The various movements made by the Fed
eral troops in different quarters, to aid Gen.
Sherman, are at an end. The Army of the
Potomac was ordered to move on Monday
last, and every thing was prepared for an
advance, but the authorises, no doubt com
ing to th9 conclo. sion that the Rapidan was
too remote, and the time too late, to have
any influence on Sherman, on Tuesday
countermanded the order.
In Tennessee, as we predicteJ, General
Grant did not make any attack upon the
formidable works which defended Dalton.
He held his advanced position in front of
Tunnel Hill during Thursday last, and that
night fell back to Taylor's Ridge of which
this hill forms a part. . His loss during the
advance was three hundred.
The cavalry expedition sent from Mem
phis under General Smith, went abont one
hundred and fifty miles south-east of that
place to West Point, on the Tombibee
river, in Mississipp'near the Alabama State
liiie. Them the Confederates met and de
feated them, forcing them back wiih con
siderable loss. General Smith, thus cm off
from joining Sherman, is now marching
back to Memphis.
General Longstreet, whoe march from
Knoxville has been announced, is reported
as having arrived at Atlanta on Thursday
last. He is about twenty-five milos south
of Dalton, and in position to aid Johnston
or oppose Sherman.
The Court of Inquiry on tbe conduct of
Generals McCook aud Crittenden, at the
battle qf Chickamaoga, it is reportsd, will
exonerate them from blame. '
The confederates have made a raid into
Mayfield, in Western Kentucky, h is re
ported that thpy intend holding the Arkan
sas bank of the Mississippi.
Gen. Grant has been commissioned Lieut.
General. Gen. Sherman is to bo a Major
General. -
The United States Minister at Japan de
nies that the Alabama is blockaded any
where. Marshal Kane of Baltimore is in Richmond.
Diseased Hohsks. It is said the govern
ment have at Washington about forty thous
and diseased horses that are dying oil daily
and that the men who are taking care of
them contract the disease from the horses,
and are alro dying rapidl) about fifteen a
day. A man who has been there, and
waited upon some of the sick men, reports
that something like a dozen colored men,
and an everage of about three white men,
die daily from the horse disease. A large
number of these horses have been bought
op by speculator?, taken to various parts of
the country and offered for sale. Buyers
should be careful. Several hotel keepers
bave resolved that they shall not be stabled
on their premises, as it endangers not only
their horses, but those of their patrons.

Query. The first, and even the second,
year of the war volunteering was brisk
enough to furnish all the men neceasary,
and if one then asked a Wide-Awake or a i
Union Leaguer why he did not enlist, his
reply would almost invariably be: "I will
go as soon as I am needed." Everybody
is familiar with this fact. The reply of
some would be : "I am ready as soon as
the government calls lor my service." Oth
ers said : "If these copperheads won't go
when drafted, we will drive them in.7'
Such were then the "stern resolves" of
nearly all the "loyal ;" but, alas, how is it
now ? Draft upon dralt has been made ;
the "service" of these patriots has been
needed ; the government has ''called" for
ihem ; but still they are here, oflering large
bounties, threatening Indiscriminately to
tax the rich, the poor and the widow, to
save themselves from the draft, and coaxing
little boys to go as substitutes in their stead!
The query noi arisen, were these men
serious then, or can they be patriots now ?
In whatever light we view them, they are,
as their practice shows, great hypocrites
and lily-livered patriots.
Vallamuuelim Fir n Societies have been

is a martyr to treespeech and the cause of

If he was guilty of any crime why not pun

to the higher law, or Abolition programme.
The truth is the delenders of this weak, im '

than they like the Union. Let the friends
