FOR PRESIDENT IS 1864,
GEORGE C. M'CLELLAN,
Subject lo the Decision of the Democratic
Tiic Chase Circular.
. We print this morning a synopsis of a
circular which has been largely distributed
through out the West by the friend of Mr.
Chase. lis strength is in its facts. Every
candid man must admit that the "one-term"
principle has been virtually incorporated
into our system of Government, and that
there is an almost imperative necessity for
its enforcement at the present time Taking
Mr. Lincoln to be no better and no worse
than other men, it is obvious that the power
which he now wields may become vastly
dangerous to the country if he te allowed
to make use of it to effect his own re-election.
The patronage of the. Federal Gov
ernment has always been a ssurce of alarm,
but when compared with that of to-day, the
amount, even in the time of the last Ad
ministration, is utterly insignificant. When
Mi. Lincoln, therefore, undertakes to em
ploy all the influence whictTihe enormous
expenditures ot the Government give him
to re-appoint himself, men of all parties
should recognize the danger oitbe situation, !
and unite ia resisting bis schemes. It is
enough that he commands a million of sol
dier, and controls the annual outlay of a
thousand million of dollars, to satisfy every
prudent man that Lis re-election must be
prevented. Were he as wise and patriotic
ns his most fulsome eulogist asserts him to
be, it would still be hazardous in the ei"
treme to permit him to retain his bold upon
power more despotic and limitless than
that of Emperor or Czar; but as this circular
proceeds to show, Mr. Lincoln has no per
sonal claims upon the confidence of the
country. It has never been said of bim
that 'he is not a smutty joker," bnt it has
teen t'emonstrated that he . is utterly unfit
for his position, while the developments of
the last few weeks prove that even his
'honesty," which has long been his sole
recommendation, is not sufficient to restrain
him from sacrificing thousands of lives to
secure three rotes in the Electoral College.
upon me gcure vi utiices lucic.uie, j
there could be no question as to the pro
priety of discarding Mr. Lincoln at once
and for ever, and if there can be a full and
fair discussion of Mr. Lincoln's claims we
have no doubt that this will be the unani
mous conclusion of his own party. In the
way of effecting so desirable a consumma
tion, no document has yet appeared equal
in value to this last circular from the
friends of the Secretary of the Treasury,
and we trust that our friends will do all in
their power to aid in its circulation.
The Candidate for Gevernor in Connecticut.
The Democratic State Convention met on
the 24lh ult., antfnomicated Judge Origen
S. Seymour, of Litchfield Co., for Governor.
Col. Tbos: rL Seymour was, no doubt the
choice of .the Democracy of that Slate, but
he declined, and local reasons not lo be fet
aside, plainly pointed to Judge Seymour as
the proper candidate upon this occasion.
He is well known in the State, fie was a
member of Congress in 1852, and in 1855
was chosen by the ' Legislature one oi the
Judges to serve for eight years. His term
expired, last year, and for the henious crime
of voting for Thomas II Seymour, and be
cause he refused to pledge himself not to
issce writs of habeis corpus in cases of mil
itary arrests, lie was thrown overboard
He is a substantial and talented man, hs
always been a Democrat and win, if elected,

efforts will be spared to oust the present
Soldiers Yct'.s; ia Sew Jeney.
We notice that the Hon. Thomas Dunn
English, member of the New Jersey Legis
lature, from Bergen County, has introduced
in that body a bill to prevent the sending of
armed soldiery into that State to influence
the election. This bill mSkes it a crime for
any armed soldier to come withiu two miles
cf an election poll on the day of election,
and guards by stringent clauses the freedom
of the elective franchise. Thelaw is one pro
peria itseif.and considering the fate of other
Slates, absolutely necessary. No one can
iorm any idea how soon the iron hand of
'military necessity" will lay its grasp upon
every vestige of popular liberty, and it is
desirable, when it is seized, that the tyrants
shall be compelled to walk over every legal
barrier that can be placed in their way. It
will be easier to roase the people to a , de
fense of the Constitution and the laws which
the madmen in power seem determined to
force Dpon them, if the issue shall be sharp
ly and plainly defioed. Let it be made.

The 'President and his Dependents.
The office-holders, shoddyites and "loyal
thieves" under the administration, are
making a strong movement in favor of the
re-no mi nation of- the : mud-turtle," as
Beecher called Lincoln some time since.
If the "signs of the time' are to be relied
upon, we think it quite probable they will
be successful, for, with the immense pa
tronage and power now in the hands of
the President, and the unscrupulous man
ner in which he makes use of this power
and patronage, he has only to make known
his wishes to have them carried out. Chase,
Fremont, and 'picayune Butler" are turn
ing their eyes wistfully in the direction of
the White House, but "old Abe" can laugh
at their efforts as he rattles his money-bags
in their faces. That he will be the Abolition-Jacobin
candidate we have no doubt.
Well, so be it. With Lincoln as the Abo
lition candidate, the issue to be decided
will be well understood by the people. It
will be a contest of conservatism againt
tadicalism ; of the true friends of a whole
Union against traitors, who have purposely
and for political object", procrastinated this
devastating war, and who declare . that the
war is not for the Union. It will be an ef
fort on the part of the people against those
who are seeking to destroy our country and
our republican, form of government, and
who desire to build np a monarchy more
despotic than that ruled by the Emperor of
Russia. It will be a struggle of the masses
against the hordes of thieves who have
been sucking the life-blood of the nation .
With Lincoln as the Jacobin candidate
then, we repeat, the people will go -into the
contest with their eyes open. His acts are
before them ; his violated pledges, his
want of courage, his connivance at dishon
esty, his lack of ability, and his desire' to
thwart the people's wishes by a resort to
military brute force, are all fresh in the
minds of the people. We speak what we
believe when we say that be contributed
more than any man living to bring on this
war ; and be ia determined too, lo throw
every obstacle in the way that will prevent
its termination. He is of opinion that by
prolonging the war beyond November next
he can secure his re-election ; and it is well
known that be considers the interest of him
self and bis festering Abolition party para
mount to the interests of the country.
When be arrived at Washington in
March, 1861, disguised in a plaid cloak and
Scotch cap, a word from him would have
been sufficient to have quelled, the storm
that was then convulsing the country from
centre to circumference. The Peace Con
gress was then in session, and delegation
after delegation waited upon Mr. Lincoln
and implored him, with tears in their eyes,
to announce himself in favor of the Critten
den Compromise then pending in Congress
and Peace Convention. - Had he but said
the word "peace," this fair, honorable and
equitable Compromise would have been
adopted by Cocgress and the peace confer
ence, and the war avoided. But no, the
Chicago Platform was in his way a .plat
form patched up by a set of traitors, infidels,
Red Republican foreigners and plunderers
Politics ruled him then as now, and be deter
mined, rather than yield one iota of his po
litical prejudice, to see civil war with all
its devastations and horrors ; he determin
ed, rather than deny the binding force of
the Convention that nominated him, to see
the fields and valleys of oor fair coon'ry
made rich with the blood of a deceived and
betrayed people. He had declared also, be
it rempmbered, (previous to" his election,)
that "this country could not stand as it was J
part free and part slave, but that it must be
all free or all slave," and as this was one
of his wise sayings, he felt anxious to prove
its truth by destroying slavery. His parti
zans In Congress also clamored for ''a little
blood-lettir.g." and nothing but war would
satisfy either Mr Lincoln or bis party ad
herents. And war we have a war such as
the world never beheld a war that makes
devils out of men, and rascal of those who
formerly were considered honorable citizens.
When it is to end, orhow,God alone know.
It required but a lew scoundrels rebel at
the South and Abolitionists at the North
to commence it, but millions of men can
not end it. It never can, it never will end
uflder an Abolition Administration
Then, Messrs. Abolitionists, fchoddyites
hirelings and hangers-on, bring out your
Abraham Lincoln for a second term. The
people now know him and his treasonable
party they know bis and their designs,
and, when the proper time arrives, they
will not be slow to rally in their strength
to the rescue of their bleeding coun'ry, and
in a voice like the voice in the wilderness,
invite the vandals now io power to vacate
the places they occupy and disgrace.
We must and will have a fair election.
We have submitted to bayonet rule once,
but let the Washington dynasty never re
peat that experiment again, for we tell
them, in all kindness, the people will not
stand it. Give us a fair chance, a fair elec
tion this is all we ask, and this we are
determined to have. Carlisle Volunteer.
"Vote roa Ccbtix sd Sate the Draft,"
was the motto, (.says the Washington im
porter, of the Abolitionists before tne last
election. Well.' Curtin was elected (we
won't say how,) bnt how about the draft ?
The President's call for Jive hundred thousand
more furuisbes the reply. .This furnishes
another iustauce ot the hollow pretensions
of the republican party. The managers of
that party are now engaged in the patriotic
work of President making. It is proclaimed
that the war is about over ; the rebellion is
nearly crushed: that the . experiment of
emancipation, confiscation, and subjugation
id a great success ; that through the patrio
tism of the Republican party the - Union is
nearly restored , and that the "amnesty"
proclamation will soon set everything right"
Painful experience, we beg to add, will
soon demonstrate whether there is any
more truth in present than in former prom
ises. To conquer au empire i3 a gigantic
nsdertaking and has never been accornp
lished against a united people, nor except

which certainly oar leaders ax not.
President Lincoln in Trouble
The squabble in the Republican party
for the nomination for the next Presidency
is growing into very pretty proportions, and
is giving Mr. Lincoln considerable uneasi
ness. Gen. Banks, Gen. Fremont, Mr.
Chase and others are warmly contesting the
ground with him. Mr. Chase seems to be
his most formidable competitor. Bat his
excellency holds the purse and sword, and
will most likely gain the day.
As the following circular, opon the sub
ject, was issued by the Chairman of the
National Republican Executive Committee,
we have a right to take it for granted that
we shall not be charged with being "dis
loyal" for republishing it :
Washington, D. C, Feb. 1864.
Sir ; The movements recently made
throughout the country, to secure the re
nomination of President Lincoln, render
necessary some counter action on the part
of those unconditional friends of the Union,
who differ from the policy of his Adminis
tration. So long as no efforts were made to fore
stall the political action of the people, it
ws both wise and patriotic for all true
friends of the Government to devote their
influence to the snrpression of the rebell
ion. But when it becomes evident that
party machinery and official influence are
being used to secure the perpeiup.tiou of
the present administration, those who con
scieruiously believe that the interests of the
country and of freedom demand a change
in favor ol vigor and purity and nationality,
have no choice but to appeal at once to the
people, before it shall be too late to secure
a fair discussion of principles.
Thoe in behalf of whom this communi
cation is made, have thoughtfully surveyed
the political field, and have arrived at the
following conclusions :
1. That, even were the re-election of
Mr. Lincoln desirable, it is practically im
pnsible 8gainst the onion of influences
which will oppose him.
2. That should he be re elected, his
manifest tendency towards compromise and
temporary expedients of policy will be
come stronger during a second term than it
has been in the first, and the cause oi hu.
man liberty and'the dignity and honor of
the nation, suffer proportionately ; while
the war may continue to languish during
his whole administration, till the public
debt shall become a burden too great to be
3. That the patronage of the Government,
through the necessities of the war, hasbeen
so rapidly increased, and to such an en or
moua extent and so loosely placed, as to
render the application ol the "one-term
principle" absolutely essential to the cer
tain safety ol our Republican institutions.
4. That we find united in Hon Salmon
P. Chase more of the qualities needed in a
President during the next four years, than
are combined in any other available candi
date; his record, clear and unimpeachable,
showing him to be a statesman of rare
ability, and administrator of the very high
est order, while his prirate character furn
ishes the surest obtainable guarantee of
economy and purity in the management oi
5. That the discussion of the Presidential
question already commenced by the friends
ol Mr. Lincoln, has developed a popularity
and strength in Mr. Chase, unexpected
een to hu warmest admirers ; and while
we are awate that his strength is at present
j unorganized and in no condition to mani
fest its real magnitude, we are satisfied lhs.1
it only needs systematic and faithful effort,
to develop it to an extent sufficient to over
come all opposing obstacles.
For these reasons the friends of Mr. Chase
have determined on measures which fell all
present bis claims fairly and at once to the
country. A central organization has been
ellected, which already has its connections
in all the States, and the object of which is
to enable his friends everywhere, most ef
fectually to promote his elevation to the
Presidency. We wish the hearty co-operation
of all (hose in favor of the speedy res
toration of the Union upon the basis of uni
versal freedom, and who desire an admin
istration of the Government during the first
period of its new life, which shall, to the
fullest extent, develop the capacity of free
institutions, enlarge the resources of the
country, diminish the burdens of taxation,
eleva'e the standard of public and private
morality, vindicate the honor of the Repub
lic before ihe world, and, in all thing,
make our American nationality, the fairest
example for imitation which human pro
gress have ever achieved.
If these objects meet your approval, yon
can render efficient aid by exerting yourself
at once to organize your section of the coun
try, and by corresponding with the Chair
man of the National Executive Committee,
for the purpose either of receiving or im
parling information. Very respectfully,
S. C. Pomebov.
Chairman National Executive Committee.
Mr. Greeley, of the New York Tribune,
has also turned tail opon the President, and
warmly espouses the cause of Mr. Chase.
In his paper of the 22d nit., he says,' in the
course of a long article :
The practical question, then, is this Has
Mr. Lincoln proved so transcendently able
and admirable a President that all consid
eration ol the merits, abilities and services
of others should be postponed or forborne
in favor of his re-election? This is a ques
tion whereon, pending the definitive se
lection of our candidates, there should be
the utmost freedom of opinion and expres
sion. We answer it in the negative. Hear
tily agreeing that Mr. Lincoln has done
well, we do not regard it as at all demonstr
ated that Gov. Chase, Gen. Fremont, Gen.
Butler, or Gen. Grant, cannot do as well.
We freely admit Lincoln's merUs ; bnt we
insist that they are not such as to eclipse
and obscure those of all the statesmen - and
soldiers who have aided in the great work
of saving the country from disruptioa and
overthrow. And, if others have done as
well in their respective spheres, then we
hold that the genius of our institutions, the
i salutary One Terra principle, which has
been established by the concurrence ol each
of our great parties, and by the action of
the people, overruling either in turn, coun
sels the choice of another from among our
eminent Unionists for President from and
alter March 4, 1865.
So far as the nation is concerned, it
makes but little difference who ibey nomi
nate. If it should be any other than Mr.
Lincoln, and the nominee be successful, it
will only be out oi the frying pan into the
fire. Any one of them will wreck it In an
other four years.
Two negroes arrived here last week from
New Orleans on their way to Washington
to wait upon Lincoln to petition him to
grant the right of suffrage to the negroes of
Louisiana! A certain Col, McKaye, in a
speech in New Orleans, urged that, a dele
gation of this character be sent, and gave it
as his opinion that before the close of the
present session of Congress its petition
would be granted! We do not realize the
immense distance we have drifted away
from the constitutional government of 1788,
until such an idea as Lincoln taking upon
himself to decree who shall have th right
of suffrage within a State, is practically pre
sented to our mind. Language is altogether
inadequate to describe the outrages upon
justice and even common decency which
the present party in power daily perpetrate,
and unless a writer brings to bear all the
adjectives in the dictionary in every article
he pens, he fails to give even a concep'ion
of the monstrous villainies consianty occur
ring. The attempt to force upon the people
of the South, negro suffrage, is one ol these
things. There is scarcely a . doubt but it
will be alte mpted in uter defiance of all
laws and all constitutions. In fact, it must
come to that, for their is no other logical
termination to B ack Republicanism, in
deed, that does not complete the full meas
ure of its iniquity. The finale is amalga
mation of blood, and ihe person who does
tee that this is the natural and inevitable i
termination of the first step irt Abolition,
has not mind enough to connect cause with
effect. Those who admit the premise of
Abolitionism and suppose they can escape
its consequences, will live to find them
selves terribly mistaken. No nation or

"How are we to get clear of the draft ?"
''How about the draft V "I am poor."
"His father and mother are both dependent
upon bim," &c, &c. -So runs the long
line of questions and anxious expressions
of the people about this dreaded draft. The
Republicans, Abolitionists, Democrats Cop
perheads and all join in the lamentation.
The draft is now postponed aain until

that is in the reeo-baek system. Why not

of raiting men fnr this war. The r'PP,e

LATE WAR NEWS.
There can no longer be any doubt that
Gen Sherman, being outwitted by the ene
my, is endeavoring to get back to the Fed
eral lines. There are this morning two re-
ports from him, both of which indicate that j our departed friend and ste, like the roe
he is retreating to Vicksburg. One is from j nipped by an early frost, withered and died

tainly go northward, as we indicated the
other day, in order to cross the Pearl river,
get it between him and his pursuers and
then make a straight march back to Vicks
burg. This be no doubt has done. The de
spatch writer, however, adds some com
ment of his own about Sherman's intending
to flank Johnston, and being but one hun
dred miles off from him. To get to Johnston
and flank him, Sher.man would have to go
northeast at least three hundred miles, and
with the wearied army he no doubt has,
this would be absured. If his men could
do without eating, and his artillery be mov
ed by jaded horses, he might do it. The
story, however, is too loolioh to spend
time in contradicting
The other report is that General MTher
sen. who led Sherman's advance, has arriv
ed at Jackson, mid the remainder of the
force is closely following, Jackson ia bat a
short distance east of Vicksburg, and direct

take a few dttys yet to e'ear op the mystery
connected with Sherman's movements, bnt
there is no reasonable doubt that he is
making the best ot his way back to Vicks
burg. General Kilpatrick with a portion of
