From the dsys of Judas IseirTot to the
preen1 period, Jove of -money has induced
more degradatlob and crime than any other
one passion. And 'hose known lobe sub
ject to this all powerful influence, have
been bed fribre frequently by tyrants to ac
complish their oppressive purposes, than
any other class. The more powerful and
brilliant the intellect, the more debased and
corrupt it becomes when once- the slave of
this sordid passion, acd the mere dangerous
an engine of oppresMtn.
' Sir Francis Satan was not Inaptly styled
the greatest and meanest man of bis . day.
The love of money waajiis ruin. For gain
be would turn his back on his most devoted
friend, and not hesitate to do him injory.
For gin he would persecute his greatest
benefactor. Hi -shameful and iniamou
course toward the Earl ol Essex-athe rhan
to whom he owed more than all others
was a striking illustration of his mean in
gratituts and selfishness. As Macau'ey
says of him, bis distinguishing attributes,
next to his intellect, were "coldness of
heart and meanness of spirit. His desires
were set on things below. Wealth, prece
dence, titles and patronage, wer8 the bb
iecta of bis llfft."

. If lh Lincoln and bis .advisers nave
manileel'ed skill and tact in any one thing
Of- policy, it has been in availing themselves
or lh inordinate- desire fbr money and
place, which has dixtingnished many of
those who have lent themselves to forlher
the wicked scheme of the Administration.
It is a sad proof of the depravity dl the
public men of the , present day, to find
among the most aubeervient tools of the
Blacz' Federal dyhasly, ben who ooce
were prominent leaders of the Slate
rights" party, then gifted with natural ca
pacity, but who like Bacbo, have, tb grati
fy their sordiJ appetites lot gain and place,
sold themselves to the basest purpose.
And right good use has Mr Li o coin rbade
of these "life-long Democrats;"
If any vile purpose, any gtas usurpa
tion of power, any outrage Bpon the rights
of a Slate, a town, city or individual citizen,
Had to be accomplished, to vile, so startling
and outrageous, that decent Republicans
shrink from it, forthwith the President wo'd
whistlo for bis new converts his new pack
and, with responsive howls and bounds,
they would leap into his presence, ready to
do hi bidding and throttle and destroy
whatever aod whoever he pointedut.

ease of New Orleans, to subject rJon com

was 10 retain his eeJnraiesioa . end pay,
which should justly bate beta taka froti

lit, til the pockets of ZloZift 'esi etuc'bt
Black Federal contractors, another of the
"life-long" pack was whistled tip. ""Scrip
ture Dick" was selected. All he asked, or
obtained was a few crumbs from the leav
ioga of bis masters. Crumbs bad btiefi bis
feed for years from his old friends, the
"State rights" party, and, for Crumbs, he
was willing to cite Scripture against them. .
So with the "life long" Andrew Johnson
now Prince of Tennessee. So with
Bro'ngh of Ohio, and his predecessor the
"life-long" David Tod Honest Davy.- And
so, too, with thousands of others of less
note, but equally as hungry and ready "to
bite and bark" whoever and whenever' It
may be required by theit masters.
'Oue of the roost servile, as well as the
most sagacious of the prowling pack of
"life -longs," is the gallant Brigadier-General
Judye Advocate flolt, a native of Ken
lucky, and a student of that truly great man
and friend ol "State rights'- Joho Rowan.
At an early age be moved to Mississippi,
and remained "there long enough to make a
large fortune. He then returned to Ken
tucky to vegetate. All this time he boasted
of his devotion to Slate right.
In the canvass ol ''6 he was indnccd to
take the stump for Buchanan and Brcckin
"ridge, 'and to hear. his speeches on Slate
rights and Federal nsorpation, one would
have supposed en orator of '93 had erisen
and as expounding the resolutions of Jef
Yerson and Madison. His speeches were
republished all over the Union . He wan
ted office and emolument. Mr. Buchanan
made him Commissioner of Patents. Ho
removed to Washington. Moi.ey, money
was his .passion. Still, like Lord Bacon,
his intellect was brilliant By chance he
got into the Cabinet first, Poktmaster Gen
eral for a while, and then Secretary of War
for a "Tew days." A more subervient
miaisier fd the ncweVs then reigning, was
never seen. He took sides with Mr. Bu-)
chanan on the Lecompton question, and j
kepi sides all the time just as long as'i
"thrift would folVow tiwning." (
The Black Federals came into power. A
practical exercise of "State rights" rights '
that General Holt had always advocated as
sacred Was about to occur. The General
deserted his principles, deeerted his friends
and took sides with his old foes. It paid
He wrote letter to Kentucky, and made
speeches in Kentucky for Lincoln, his em- j
ployer. It paid. He told Kentcckians that
Federal soldiers would not disturb "a flow
er or blade of grass in their gardens."
Would protect their property would regard
theft rights. He was paid to tell them so.
He exhorted Kentockians to ''work at the
pumps" to save ibe old h!p Constitution.
And when the Confederate troopl came in
to the Slate the General left for Washing
ton. It wouldn't pay to stay in Kentucky,
but it did pay to go to Washington.
h became necessary for some "life long"
meruber, ol the bid "State rights" pack, to
howl for the proclamations of Mr. Lincoln
issued in January. 1863. General Halt
howled. . Forgetting his Slate rights doc
trinesforgetting that . Kentucky, which
"worked at the pumps' at his bidding, de
nounced the proclamations as gross outrages

john Porter in order to save a .pet . of 'Mr.
Lincoln General "Qnarfers-in-ibe-Saddle"

lawless acts were Independable. Mr. Lin
coln whistled up his judge Advocate Gen.
Holt. Porterjwas damned. Holt did it,
and, in the performance, also damned him
self. But what mattered ? it paid.
Now Brigadier General Judge Advocate
Halt propose! a system of "Military Jus
tice" to expedite the infliction of punish
ment on offenders against bis matter. We
suppose it was in view of this that he has
been made Brigadier as well as Judge Ad

some neW outrage upon States or citizens is
lo be perpetrated, and tHai the General will
be called, upon as a "life-long" to do it.

Mf. lineolii! 'far Speech in iS13. .
The following ia Mr. Lincoln's bnfy
speech in Congress, in 1848, in which be
discussed the message of President Polk
and the wa'r with Mexico. Persons amicus
to jump with the administration may per
'haps get light, in the daTTiness with which
arbitrary aVrests "and "the suppYesshjn of free
'speech "have enshr6uded tbem, on the ques
tion what sort of talk Mr Lincoln will per
mit to be uttered concerning "hirhself :
Let him (the President) answer fully and
candidly. Let him answer with Jacls, and
not with arguments. Let him remember
he sits where Washington sat.; and, so re
membering, lei him answer as Washington
would answer.' As a nation should not, and
the Almighty 'will not, be evaded, so let him
attempt 'no evasion, no equivocation. ,
But if he cannot or will not do this f,
on any pretense, he shall refuse or omit it
-then 1 shall bo fully convinced, bf what
I more 'than suspect already, that he is
deeply conscious of being in the wrang ;
that be fel the blood of this war, like the
blood of Abel, is crying to heaven against
him ; that he ordered Gen. Taylor into lha
midst of a peaceful Mexican settlement
purposely to bring on a war ; that, original
ly having some strong motive what, I will
hot stop now to give my opinion concern
ing to involve the two countries in a war
and, trusting :o escape scrutiny by fixing
the public g&z upon "the exceeding bright
ness of military glory that attractive rain
bow that rises in showers of blood that
charms to destroy he pulled into it, and
has swept on' and on, till, disappointed in
his calculation of the ease with which Mex
ico mig'ht be subdued, he now finds himself
he knows not where. How like the half
insane mumbling of a faver dream is the
whole wax part ol the late message !
All this shfcws that the President is in no
wise satisfied With his own positions. First,
he takes up one view and, in attempting o
argne hi into it, he argues himself out of
it, then sizes another, and goes through the
same process ; and then, confused at be
ing able to think of nothing new, he snatch
es op the old ene again, which he has some
time before cast oil. His mind, talked be
yond its power, is running hither And thith
er, like some tortured creature On a burning
surface, finding no position on which it caa
settle down and be at eae.
Again, it it a singular omission in this
message that it is nowhere iafimated when
the President expects the war lo terminate.
At its beginning General Scott was, by the
President, driven into disfavor, if not dis
graced, for intimating that peace could not
be conquered in lees than three months.
But now, at the end of about twenty months
daring which time our arms have given
os the most splendid successes every de-
paritnent, and every part, land and water,
officers and privates, regulars and volun
teers, doing all that men could do,, and hun
dreds of things which it had never before
been thought men could do alter ell ibis,
this same President gives us a long mes
sage, without showing us that, as to the end,
hm has hlm.Mf even an imaoinarr rnncpn.

Vtu l!i8 Democralic Candidate Elected Last
Almost every unbiassed and fair man in
the Slate of Pennsylvania, was satisfied, af
ter the gubernatorial election last October,
that the Hon. George W. Woodward was
fairly and honestly elected Governor bf this
Stare. But, through a system of political fi'
tieit, such as has never before disgraced as
as a State, the result was declared otherwise.
The open declaration of Secretary Stanton,
that be sent more men into the Stats to vote
than made up Cnrtin's majoruy, we have
never seen denied ; while the bare fact that
Judge Woodward received 251.171 a larg
er vote by thousands than any Democratic
candidate who was elected had received
for 20 years, and that, too, berore eiri! war
had desolated the land and thinned the
rank's of the voters was evidence conclu
sive that the voice 6f the people had
been stifled at the behest of the new tyrant,
"mihtary necessity." The difficulty, how
ever, of getting at the facts tangibly and in
a specific manner, in the courts, was ap
parent, and the present Executive was in
augnrated. We mention these matters, ef
rec'snt h'utcry merely as preliminary to the
There lives in the city of Philadelphia, a
highly respectable man by the name of
John Bull Rotinson a plain and unletter
ed man, but truthful and honest. He has
published a pamphlet of sixteen pager, in
the form of an address to the people of the
United States, on the frauds committed on
their elective franchise, and on kindred
topics, which has been sent to us.
The pamphlet has no merits ot style, but
it contains some curious arithmetical state
ments concerning our acini. I and possible
votes last Fall, which we should lay be
fore our readers, had we the space at com
mand. However illy Mr. Rotinaon writes,
he cyphers well. He hat put the official
figures into every form, conceding to the
abolitionists more than they have a right to
claim, and throwing all 'doubts into their,
scale, and yet these figures prove a majority i
for the Democratic ticket of more than 40,
OttO voles : Some views that he takes, re
sult io a much larger majority, but he can't
make the figures tsl! "the lie by which the
abolitionists hold power.
It is the nnivertal conviction of tho De
mocracy of Pennsylvania, that they gave i
their ticket a majority last Fall, and that'
they were cheated in the proclaimed result. !
But this opinion, though held in ever part I
of the Slate, rests on the observation of in- '
dividaal, and not oo collected proofs. Mr. I
Robinson's figures prove the soundness of
the opinion, feud shew what the proofs, if
they were gathered together, would neces- '
sarily establish'. j

neighbor, who was in person somewhat
like the deceased, to go to bed at her house,
and personate him, in which character it
was agreed that he should dictate a will,
leaving the widow tbe estate in question.

answers she expected and desired. The
cobbler groaned aloud, and looking as much
like a person going to give up ihe ghost as
possible, feebly answered. "I intend to
leave you half my estate, and I think ihe
poor old shoemaker who lives apposite Is
dessrviog the other half, for be has always
been a good neighbor. The widow was
thunderstruck at receiving a reply so" differ
