We all recoil ect that' worthy citizen of
Athens who banished Aristides solely be
cause it annoyed turn to hear the epithet,
'the Just," constantly, coupled with - his
name. We have all . been struck by this
Strang a spec men of political liberty, and
by the lack of judgement in the application
It w;i not because this tin3urt notoriety
given to the name of a citizen of the repub
lic might alter a time, prove dangerotii, nor
because the epithet of "Jasl" was question
able, that the worthy citizen dl Greece ban
ished Aristides." He woald not even discuss
the matter, the epithet annoyed hira, and.
thai was enough to ostracise its unfortunate
tearer. lo this we see an excess bl liberty
and a lack of political education.
Now, we are annoyed and irritated ai
hearing the words Abraham Lincoln arid
honesty always coupled together ; but baihg
more generous than the excellent Athenian
citizen aforesaid, we propose, before estra
ciziag hoi s) t Abe' horn the White House, to
consider his riLt io the surname of "Hon
est 1" To call one man honest but of a pop
ulation of -thir y millions, is not so ranch
a compliment to hint- as a satire upon all
the rest. Let us look into his honesty and
capability. After three years of patient
silence we have a rigrit, and moreover it is
our doty, Mr. Lincoln, to . examine your
acts and show iherb' to the nation. You
eommenced by confiding the fate of our
cause, the honor of our' arms, and the lives
of out sons to men having no higher claim
to such trust than a bof t of voters at their

We have allowed you to further your
political and personal interests,' and to trans

baa swallowed up thousands of lives and
millions of treasure, so that you might be
able to dazzle the eyes of the people with
victories far more., than ' reaL We have
permitted yon to sacrifice, .tried patriots,
whose popularity alarmed you, and whose
energy disappointed your calculations.
We have allowed you to deceive the peo
pie i.ws have let you transform disgraceful
defeats inio vietories ; and even we made
no outcfy when you were reduced to beg
exoneration for aets which have eternally
disgraced the honor of oar arris. You have
been unable either to foresee or forestall
anything. What has become of the nation's
enthusiasm T What ha ve you done with
the immense resources, unprecedented in
history,' that the nation has lavithlv giveu

and yet yoa are forced to act on the da fen
aive, being threatened at all points.
Whenever yoa have directed the, act ion
of our troops they have beers uniformly un- j
successful.; you liare perpetually onered
us the wretched spectacle of splendid re
sources and excellent chances of success
sacrificed to incapacity; The only success
which yea came near attaining, but the
credit of which we intend to take from you,
i due to the incredible imaginativeness
that you have displayed in describing facts.
Changes of base, masterly retreat, aud re
connoiance have succeeded each other
with a rapidity worthy ot the greatest show
man of modern litres. The immense variety
of circumstance is only equalled by the
identity of the results. We have :
Smith's Tecon no Uauc'e. ,
i 1 1 in ore's CbarlrslonrecorjRoissance.
: The result is every where the lame, ri
diculous aud 'disastrous. The sole cou
cession we can make to -your honesty is
that you have improved upon thechange ot
base in 1862 ; yoa destroy fewer tutdiers
and burn less of the nation's property.
- How is it that after three years ol incom
parable victories, according to Halleck's
facetious expression, "unpreeedeiited in
the military histoty of nations," you ate still
pondering how to .preserve the national
Capitol and your bases of operation ? . .
- Is it a reward for such success, for the
acMevement of snch results, lb yott now
ask the nation to pass a vote of confidence
iand re-elect ypu for another, aud perhaps
another Term ?
Ia your inaugural address you gave a
very striking inspiration of your peculiar
honesty by pledging yourself, in accordance
with the well-known principles toT the par
ty which had elected you, uot to verve anoth
er term ; you said this in a man net WtiVch
none ef yoor supporters then tinderstond
but your words were evidently designed to
bear a double meaning, to that, if .you
should find the sweet 'ot office more 8u
licing than yoa possibly anticipated, you
might change your purpose without seem
ing to violate your promise. Candid people
will see an this a great deal more evidence
of cunning than of honesty.
The whole troth is this i you. are leading
the nation quiedy lo destruction by deceiv
ing the people an to the dangers which
threaten it. la the first part ot the cam
paign of 1862 yoa gained advantages which
yoa were unable lo utilize or even to retain

You sacrificed the entire west for the cap

And to cap the climax, yoo are obliged
to hear definitions like this : Ao uncondi

Are we really the descendants of those prin

Mr Lincoln's , honesty is pf strange de
scription. It consists in nearly raining the
country and in disregarding its interests in
order to make sore of power for four years
j longer. To our eyes, the man who has de-
prived his country of the service ol some
! of its best citizens, who has been unable
. to make any better use of the Incredible re
sources confided to hira, and who, after ag-
itating so many public questions without
aolving one of them, disregards his own
utter Incapacity, is, of all the citizens of
the United States, the least honest and the
j most dangerous.
But even if President Lincoln wete the

be has at his back ! Let us remember tbe
j teachings of history, and the instances of
feigned or real imbecility, all of which have
resulted in despotism. Sixtns V., the half
stupid monk ia his cell, and Napoleon III,
the sottish debauch, belonging to the same
school. The men who have to endure them,
elected tbera as unimportant individuals,
whose election would give lime for reflec
tion and consideration , it will soon be six
teen ) ears that France has . reflected aud
pondered over her lost liberty. Fearing the
unknown, and shrinking from tbe perturba
tions Incidental to change, they have had
despotism and ruin, which ale leading them
inevitably to the most terrible of all the rev
elations that history has hitherto recorded.

The heaviest snow norm of two Winters,
it is p'resMmed, did net slight Petersburg
yesterday and last a'ight. The average depth
is about twelve inches, nd some affirm
that it is deeper. To day was - ushered in
with a 'cloudless sky and a merry Tinging ol
sleigh bells, the latter pastime at he tune
of S20 per "hour to those who indulged 'in it.
The Toads ot Northern Virginia, always cot
up by tire hundreds of wagons on the move,
"Will be in a horrible condition for sometime
to come, and give a truce to any intention
of activity on the part of the enemy.' It
seems to tie a settled fact that "Uncondi
tional Surrender" Grant is to try his lack
with Gen Lee in a pitched battle. It is
needless toaay that the veterans on our si. e
desire to 'Come into immediate contact with
the boasted ' hero of Vicksburg,"
The Yankee papers evidently Yegard him
as a forlorn hope, on whoseeuccess depends
onr subjugation or indepehdance. The New
York Herald, referring to bis Installation in

rebellion is not crushed by this summer, it
will never be. All of them spealc with flat

affd appear to regard the coming campaign
as the "ct'ims. The Examiner of this morn
ing contained a very sensible and able edi
torial ra the so called "Peace Party of the
North.'' There is no such wordas peace in
the vocabulary of any party ' there, in
the sence in which we understand and ac
cept it. What peace is to them, means war
to us. The Peace party mean by that terra
reconstruction of the old Union,' and a re
turn of the seceded States to their 'alle
giance.' The peace we are fighting for

nearer and nearer, and he might at any
