There is a great plau of rettibtiive justice
established over kings and na ions, from
the operation of which none may escape..
By virtue of it. all ni:jnt wars, of lawles j
ambiiion,of "robber -conquest, of iniquitous '
azgresston upon the rights or territory of
others, are made, even when, in ail human '
seeming, they are most successful, to react I
upon the wicked communities, that wage j
them, and inflict Heaven punishment
upon the arrogant wrong-doer- This pun
ishment, we may rest assured, awaits us
who are wagina cruel and unjust war upon
our brethren of the' Southern. Slates. . We
are already experiencing it in comparative
ely small yet a quite appreciable . degree.
The columns of every morning's paper
show as how alarmingly , and increasingly
prevalent is crime. The moral sense of the
community has been deplorably weakened by
the effort-which has been made to justify .a
war wrongful in its inception, and in the
successive measures whichhave been adop
ted for its iptOfecuiion, flagitionsty violative
of all law and of all rights, public and pri
vate,' civil, social, and individual.
Sanction ar.d approval of these aur-

effacement of the distinction between right
and wrong, and adoption of the rule that
the end to be attained being once clearly de .
fined, however unsrupulously chosen, all
means that will enable as to reach it are jus
tifiable. Respect fur law and reverence lor
the Constitution were once the honorable
and glorious characteristics ol the American
people the proudest marks of distinction
between ourselves and other nations. They

conduct of the Administration during the

Important Diseorery,
A dispatch from Si. Paul, (Jlinnesota,)
says : The most important discovery ever
made in ibis State has just been made pub
lic. It 'consists of a magnificent bed id can
f eel coal, which has been found up the Sim
nesota Valley on the Cottonwood river, a
little more than one hundred miles from St.
Paul. 'Mr. Eames, an English geologist,
has been prospecting for coal in Ibis State
for the past ten months, and has a: last been
successful. .The bed is 88 feet below the
surface, where the shaft waa aunk, and ia
six feel in thickness. It is probable that
other shafts will finiftl nearer the surface.
All indications are that immense coal beds
exist in that locality. A company has been
organized in this city to work the miaes,
and they expect to be bringing coal down
the Minnesota river to St. Paul by the 1st
of July. The immense impoitance ol this
discovery cannot be over stated. Our man
ufacturing interests have been kept in the
back ground for want of this material, and
they will now be rapidly developed. '
An affecting incident occurred at the
New Haven barrack the other day. A wo
man desired to see her husband embraced

1 Semantic affair.
In the Northern part of Hancock county,
Ohio, resided a.bandsomo looking, intelli
gent young widow, whose husband died in
1860 (Now thisj husband, who was very
considerably the senior of bid wife, on hs
deaili bed had exacted a promise from her
that she would never marry after hi death";
his relatives managed lo gobble up his en
lire estate leavjug her not only fca widow,
but very poor. The aforesaid "premise to
her husband she regretted in less lba:i a
year, for, lo ! a young officer in the gallent
2lt, from the neighbonng'county of Wood,
who bad loved her belore her marriage,
renewed his suit.
- She would have married him, but for the
fatal promise, ar.d for a remarkably tender
conscience, .wbichjrebuked her whenever
t.he thought of lhe matter. .
So the matter stood until the battle of
Chickamauga. The young officer was
badly wounded, and, was. brought home to
die. He made alt his preperations, setting
his house in order completely, for the last
cene of all in his eventful history.." He sent
for the widow and told her he desired but
one thing, and that was to provide for her.
He knew that 6he was poor and he had no
property lo leave her one thing only coold
he do. His widow would receive a pen
sion of thirty dollars per month from the
governmenthe would make her his wid
ow. ' '
She thought of the matter fof setefal
hours and finally concluded to do it. True
she would violate the letter of premise, but
not Ita spirit ; and when she thought of the
good the pension would do her, scruples
vanished, and they were married.
Singular as it may seem,' this marriage:
bad a benefical effect upon our wounded
hero. He showed signs of improvement
immediately ; in fact, so rapid was his re
covery, that the ex-widow began to jhink,
in the course of two or three days, that the
hope of the pension was growing faint ;
and well she might, for in a week he was
walking about, and soon after started for bis
regiment, leaving a wife behind who wept
bitterly at the parting.
Some say the gallent officer was not
wounded at all that the whole affair was
a deception, aud advised the deceived wo
man to sue for a divorce ; but she thought
not. She did cot believe there was any de
ception. She bad done justice to the mem
ory of her deceased husband J be only pro
posed marriage to benefit her : ia hit re
covery she recognized the hand , of Provi
dence, and Waa disposed to submit there

The'administralion papers, censctoos ef
ibe growing strength cl Gen. M'Clellan,
ar resorting to every imaginable expedi
ent to check the flow of the poptilar current
in h!s favor and turn it against him. ' For
ihis purpose they do not hesitate to resort
to the lowest meaue, osing misrepresenta
tion and even downright faltehood with a
frequency and unction that are disgraceful.'
They charge him wiih being a member of
the society of the Knights of lhe Golden
Circle, a society which we do not hesitate
to say has no existence int the ' Northern
Slates, ur.less, indeed, the Union League i
another name for it. Tbey charge him with
disloyalty and sympathy with traitors,
which they know in their hearts is a lie as
base as wa ever coined. In short they
omit .nothing, in their efforts to prejudice
the public mind against him, Which malice,
taxed to the utmost reach of its ingenuitj,
can invent, or calumny engender. They
are now giving circulation to a disparaging
and cynical article, copied froln the Green
Bay (Wisconsin; Advocate, which ihey print
under the caption " A Democratic paper on
M'Clellan," when, in truth, the Advctate is
as far from bsing a Democratic paper as the
Washington Chnnkle, the Philadelphia
Press or lhe Huntingdon Globe. Once lhe
Advocate claimed and deserved that honora
ble and patriotic title, but in an evil hour it
fell from its high position, and now ranks
among lhe meanest and most subservient
of the factions that have united under the
lead of lhe administration to subvert the
Constitution, dissever the Union and effect
a despotism on the ruins. It is in the same
class with Forney, Hickman, Knox, Kelley
and all of that scrt men who deserted their
party whenibey imagined its fortunes were
waning, and saw. or thought they saw, a
wider field for their ambition and cupidity
in the ranks ol the Abolitionists.
The opposition of such men is honorible
to Gen. M'Clellan, the strongest evidence
that could be given of his capability, hon
esty and patriotism. Unprincipled and
mercenary themielves, of low instincts and
base appetites, they naturally seek in their
candidate for the presidency a congenial na
turehence their support of Lincoln and
their bi;:er hostility to M'Clellaa.

stealings and plundering, cannot conceal
from the eyes of the people the rottenness
and corruption that Is hidden beneath the
surface. Lat'erly the rogues have been fall
ing out, consequently the public are being
"benefitted by the Tevelations that are mak
ing by some cl these "loyalists" turning
'states evidence.' A striking ins'ance of
this occurted lhe other day in the Hnu?e of
Representatives, when Frank Ciair, aboli
tionist, opened upon Secretary Chase, in
such language as the follo wing :
"A mdre profligate 'administration than
that of the latter never existed in any coon
try ; the country was redoient with the
frad and corruption of the agents. Again
and again permits to trade were so'd to the
highest bidder, and recently in Ba';irrore a
permit was given to a notorious blockade
runner, whose vessels had more than once
been seized. If Mr. Chase's friends had
thought these things could not be proved,
they would doubtless have voted for an in
veftigation." Here is a bold attack ; nothing lets: than
charging Secretary Cbese with beginning
in league with blockade runners, who sup
ply the rebels with munitions of war, and
other articles to eid them. A plain charge
of treason made against the highest "officer
of lhe government, and made too by a Re
publican and abolitionist. It was only the
other day 'that some of the administration
officials, in the New York Custom House,
were detected in conniving wi:h the block
ade runners in lhatcity. The most promi
nent one being the private Secietary of the
Collector of the Port, and a leader of one of
the Union Leagues of lhat city. Aud this
is iho kind ol men we aro taxed to support !
Greeley on Segroti in 1855.
The New York Tribune, Sept. 22, 1855,
held the following opinion of free blacks :
"One half ol the lree blacks have no idea
of setting themselves to Work except as
lhe hirelings of servitors of white men : no
idea of building a church, or other serious
enterprises, e'xeept through beggary from
the whites. As a class, the blacks are in
dolent, improvident, servile, : and licen
tious, and Gerritt Smith in a letter to Gov.
Hant, complains lhat 'the most of them
preferred to ROT both physically and mor
ally ia cities, rather than become farmers
and mec&anies in the country.' "
