' We copy the following article from the
Albany Argus, which -suits ear views .pre
"The administration of Mr 'Lincoln afteT
-a three years trial of it merits, cornea be
fore the country and asks for an extension
of its power for-n other Presidential term .
'The head of the administration was -origi-mally
elected to office by little over one
ttiird of the elector of the "Union and in
stead of seeking to govern tbe-counrry ee-
cerding to the will of the majority, he

of the people ;"ndif they , hare sustained

arid cowardly general, became no alterna

.insubordination and anarchy.
He was accidentally tiormaatefl - by sis

the pecple end the fate of rhe -republic
fie nerer appreciated the condition ef the
country, and when told fcefore his inaugu
nation that cerlaia States wo a Id withdraw
from Congreia,tre -chuckled over it, and
eaid that thrt would secure the confirma
tion of hi tioffiiriation by the Senate. -"
His tonr lo Washington, proclamiag "no
lody was hart," offering himself to be
looked at, measuring lengths with bystand
' etsM his disguise and flight, bis coarse jokes,
his mad J ting end his malice, gave the
"character of the man. Before he took -the
'oath to support the Constitution, he pro
claimed his fidelity to the Chicago plat
form.' That was the measure of his states-
Clanship .'.'. ' '
When he entered utpon the government,
we bare his own testimony that a majnri-y
of the people of - all the . Southern States
with perhaps, ; the exception ol Sooth
1 Carolina were opposed to secession, and in
' favor cf the Union. Yet he commenced
' immediately system of administration
" which has driven nine tenths of these
"" people into the arms of the Confederates.
He does not expect to re-organize these
"Stales, evea after conquest, except on a
-tais of a cor.s'.itaancy of one-tenth of the
' inhabitants. "
' We da not rare to disease the intrinsic
'raerits' of .the measure of" Confiscation,
Emancipation and negro' elevation, which
hate produced this result. We speak of
" the elements of success which were placed
in his hands, and of how be has misused
. them. : ; ' . .' ' r ' '
' No ceoole ever sustained a aovernroent
, with such lavish means and such entiring
devotTon as the States of the North have
sostsioed him.: Hof has he responded ?
Bj the creation of a high tariff system, for
"protection to class interests and sections,

' to revenue. By paper-money system
which oppresses labor in the beginning and
defrauds it ia the end. By a National Bank
system, uncalled for, thrice condemned,
' and suicidal in a country which yields an
anneal gold crop of a 'hundred millions,
and which has the highest interest in main
ulring a specie currency throughout the
world 4 He has created a public debt of
J fesr thousand millions to cary on a war
which might have been easily prosecuted,
- as Napoleon did bis, from the resources, of
the country, without a dollar of debt or of
' paper money. We do not speak of-his ig

provocations' lo discontent were prompted
by political malice, and will yet return lo
plague the inventors. ..

An exchange as: The mistakes are 'cu
rious which are often made 'in "estimating
the value of .paper and gold. 'We have
heard the mistake made, and by those who
claim to have -some business capacity,
whose lite is spent in dealing with money
in the way of 'buyin and selling, of count
ing paper as il worth nothing, should gold
go to 200 per cent, or 100 per cent, above
paper. There is a very simple rnle by
which the -raise of-paper may be estima
ted, and this is', make 100 the numerator of
the fraction, and the selling -price of gold
the denominator , and paper -holds that pro
.portion to gold as the unit. Thus, -if gold hi
selling at 120 or 150, the gold -value of a
dollar bill is 100-120 or 100-150, or 5 6 or
3 3 of 100 cents. -II it be 166, the same
rule ia to be followed. 4fgold then be 120,
4 dollar in paper is worth 83 1-8 cents ; if
at 450 the -dollar is worth 8 2-3 cents.

LATE WAR NEWS.
The farewarnidge received from the Rap
idan admonish us to be on the watch for a
movement. When it comes it will exceed
in importance everyihins which -now at
tracts public atteutiuo.. Very likely "before
the next issue -of this journal . the -'armies
oposing each other in Virginia will be in
motion or perhsns in conflict. -
Virginia is b this'time a " well-explored ,
battle (tround, and General 'Grant has 'the
advantage in his campaign -of 'the experi
ence of all who have tried to take Rictp
raond. 'His object will be to get at that city,'
it possible witboutti conflict, if frecessSry,
with one. This General Lee will try to foil,
either by a pitched battle, or, what is very
probable, by aflank attack upon the 'Rapn-
1-dan army as soon as'Grant shall have sofS
rcien'ly developed his plans. Washington,
Ktcnmond anu Cedar Mountain are at the
tbree angles' of a triangle Cedar Mountain
is seventy -miles from - Washington and six
ty five Irom -Richmond, by straight 'lines,
whilst the two capitals are but ninety miles
apart. Eastward Irom Cedar Mountain the
Rapidan -flows, small forks washing both
its ndrthern and southern base. . This at
J re sent is the dividing line of the opposing
orces in that quarter, the Federal headquar
ters being at Culpepper, eighl miles north
e! the mountain, the Confederate at Orange,
ten miles soujb. General 'Grant is the at
'tacking party, and to do it has divided his
army'Trito three portions. A larae bodr i
on the Rapidan ; a smaller one at Fortress
Monroe, and a still smaller one is now on
its way under Burnside, to North Carolina.
Grant's intention appears to be to employ
Btirnside's -column in North Carolina mere
ly as an army of observation, to bold in
check the large force of Confederates sup
posed to be there, and to keep them from
going to Virginia to help Lee. The two
columns with which he will operate will be
the one at 'Fortress Monroe, and Meade's
on the Rapidan. With these -it appears to
be his intention to make a concerted move
ment against Richmond. With Smith it is
:p!m traveling op the Peninsula, but as his
lorceis nearly ell negroes not very Telia
bio soldiers fttey will scarcely be expec-.ed
to act on the offensive. They of course
will rry to get into Richmond, bnl the'&'real
deeds will be expected of the Rapidan
army, the other merely endeavoring to draw
as many as possible of Lee's men south of
The Rspidsn arm will therefore be the
one to move first. Everything depends
upon its celerity, therefore all superfluous
baggage, all sick men and sutler? are an
ished from the camps. The men will be
upon forced marches all the time, until they
get into position te besiege Richmond, and
then fighting will be expected. A sort of
gigantic Sherman expedition seems to be
afloat, the Federal fore t making as wide a
circuit as possible aroifnd Lee's army and
this wiH be of course done on the Freder
rcibarg side the Madison Court Hoese
roote being impracticable.
This, s near as we can gather it from the
meagre intelligence at hand, appears to be
General Grant's plan. It is scarcely neces
sary to say thnt it is a hazardous one which
General Lee may render (stile, especially if
be knows it, whrco is more than probable.
He has two modes of counteracting it.
One is to chase alter the Federal rear when
it has started, and force it into a fight. The
other is te begin the campaign himself
We think that General Lee. having found
out enough of Grant'a designs to warrant
htm in acting, has chosen the latter.
GfeanottesviUe is twenty-fire miles south
east of Orange Court House. Strasbur is
n the Shenandoah Valley, twenty miles
west of Manassas unction, on the railroad
supplying Gsn. Meade. Gen. Ewe!!, who
command Jackson's corps, always the ad
vance of Lee's army, is at htrasbnrg, where
he has been recruiting during the winter-
General Longstreet with the force which al
ways follows on hvrell s footsteps has come
from East Tennessee to Charlottesville, bat
nvfarlher. 1 here are all kinds of rumors of
Confederate advances it. the Shenandoah
Valley, and as that is always an unfailing
means of preventing a Federal . advance it
is very probable that Lee has begun sacli a
movement. It would require four or ne
days for such a march. When Jackson
marched against McCIellan, it was six days
from the lime he first set out before he at
tacked the Federal flank.
There is very little means of judging the
strength of the opposing forces in Virginia.
The two armies must be almost balanced,
as every ertort bas been made on both sides
to bring troops into the field. Sources of
news are so controlled now by the Admin

of a movement and its results almost at the
