The sweeping conscription that may have

at least, Dntil the Jw shall return to Jeru-
sa'em. IRe propects cl peace are vary
Nine-tenths of tbe people, North and
South, are heartily tired and sick of the
war. But the prospects are not so bright
as Mr. Forney paints them ; for, unfortu
nately there are a great many people. North
and South, besilles army contractors and
camp followers interested in the continu
ance of the war. Yet we thank the Chron
icle tor its admission, and accept it in the
kind spirit in which we hope and believe it
was made. When both sides desire peace,
peace cannot be very far off. ''Whee
there's a will there's a way." In the mean
time, we presume, neither side will ram it
its exertion, nor lessen its vigilance ic pros
ecuting the war. We would respectfully
suggest, however, that it is a little out of
the ordinary course of peace negrtiations
to begin with ultimata. They, as their ,'
names implies, come Iast,and shut the door '
on luTther negotiation.
Now we want io treat, to bargain, to ne
gotiaie tor peace, and Mr. Lincoln, who it !
seems, wants peace nlso, will not deign to ;
sho hi lace io us much less talk the mat- '
.er cooly over, but slams the door rudely in :
our faces, just flinging out at the window, '
at the same time, a string of ultimata. which i
any newsboy might pick op and properly ,
appropriate as directed to himself for peace
concerns everybody and anybody. Cold ;
comfort will the advocates of peace. North '
or Sooth, derive from this bitterly sarcastic
paper. It closely resembles the lifiin oT
the Silver Veil, and the disclosure to his
debauched and deluded follower of his
horrid features, by the prophet of Khoras- ;
san. Lincoln seems to grin with the ecsta ;
cy of gratified revenge, and as good as says ,
to his deceived followers : j

President ; and, partly to effect this, you
may throw all New England into one State,
or give her" to England or, if England
won't have her, let her secede.
Now, ihis would be a tempting bait. We
don't say it would satisfy us; but the sub
ject is worthy of consideration. This war
was brought about, by New England and
New Englanders, and who koows but that
the balance of the States might live in peace
and harmony, if she were out of the way.
But we do not mean to anticipate or pre

Everywhere plain people are seying that
in the "good old times" not very long ago
when the Democratic party ruled, our
country was united and prosperous. Hsr
institutions, as perfect, perhaps,as anything
human can be, were administered accord
ing to their spirit and the intention cT their
founders. A proper balance among the de
partments of the Government was main
tained. The Executive did not think itself
entitled to arbitrary powers, and never at
tempted to assume them. The Judiciary
preserved on all occasions its independence
and dignity. Congress, in its enactments,
kept within the bounds pre-cribed by the
Constitution and by a decent self-respect.
Whatever slight defects and corruptions.in
cidenial to human frailty, might have crept
into the conduct of affairs, there were no
such gigantic villainies as corse the nation
now-a days. The Treasury was solvent,
the credit of Government good, and its ex
penses light. No little bell tingled the knell
of trial by jury, and gave the signal to con
sigh free born citizens to dungeons in dis
tant bastiles. Every one was. supposed to
hare a right to utter his opinion of the Ad
ministration in power. There were no
newspaper suppressions, and no banish
ments. Liberty was understood, and the
enjoyment of it guaranteed to all. The
people were prosperous and happy, be
cause ihey were peaceful and free. Their
condition was the admiration and envy of

prevent, so far as-in them lay, all hope of

have no prospect save misery, and no hope

This has taken place in two ways :
First. By the belectiorr ofoldiers of the
borne on such occasions large numbers of
Government officers and employees in the
civil service, has changed ihe result of
many State elections and fiven to the party
in power an unjust adjrantag. With Ihe
large powers possessed by the Admtnistra
tion for the purposes 'of the war ; with the
large increase of appointments to civil office
and the employment of vast numbers of
tion and its party hare been enabled to in
fluence elections to an alarming exteul.
The powers conferred by the whole people
upon the Government, and the revenues. do
rived by taxation from the whole people or
derived from loans which become charged
upon the whole mass of individual proper
ty, have been used in an infinite number
of ways for party purposes aod to secure to
the Republican interest, in the Federal artd
State Governments, the continued posses
sion ot power. The injustice and corrup
tive tendency cf this system cannot be de
nied, and alone should be held sufficient to
condemn the party of the Administration.
It is notorious that time after time, on the
eve of doubtful elecions, thousands of vo
ters have been sent home from the army to
turn the scale between paries and to secure
an Administration triumph. 'And this has
been done, not upon the principle of send
ing home citizen soldiers indiscriminately
and without reference to their polifnr
opinions and attachments, (which would
haye been just,) but upon tbe principle of
selecting republican soldiers, or of granting
furloughs opon the condition of a promise
from the persons favored that they would
support Administration candidates. We
mention elections in New Hampshire Con
necticut, and Pennsylvania as instances ot
such most base and unjust proceeding, by
which unscrupulous power has defeated
the true expression of popular opinion, and
obtained political advantages which were
shamelol to it and deeply injurious to
country. Will a free people consent to have
their system ot elections thus perverted
and corrupted, and expecT to enjoy, in spite
thereof, the peaceable fruits ot good gov.
ernment and mjnest nil ?
Second. A still more grave offense again-t""
the purity and independence of elections
has been committed by the Administration
in the States of Missouri, Kentucky, Mary
land and Delaware The particular circum
stances of Government interference were
somewhat different in each of these Slates,
but Ihe substantial facts in all, were lihese :
1. That the military power ot the Gener
al Government was directly spplied to con
trol the elections, and that officers and sol
diers of the army nt the Unled Siates were
openfy nse-J for that purpose.
2. That the States in question were at
tbe time in a state of profound peace and
quiet, and that with the exception of a sin
gle congressional district in Kentucky, no
Rebel raid or invasion into them was theti
! jn progress or expected
3. That in each of them there exis'ed an
adhering State government, exercising com
plete and unquestioned jurisdiction nnder
Governors and other Slate officials whose
devotion and fidelity to the Government of
the United Stites were unquestionable.
4. That there was no official call upon
the Federal Government.by the Executive
or Legislature of any one or those States for
pro ection against domestic violence, (un
der the particular provision of the Consti
tution of the United States au;borizing each
call.) but that the interference, in most
cases, was against the desire, and notably
in the case of Maryland against the protest
of the State authorities.
5. That thousands of qualified persons
: . - I ( .: .i ,
uie pons ; ana, in many cases, actual out
rage prevented the legal voter from exercis-
ing his right. The full proof of all this ap
pears in a number ot contested election
cases in Congress,iu official papers from the
Govornors of several of the States in qnes
tion, in report of committees of the State
Legislatures, and from other reliable sour
ces ; and we recommend the whole subject
as one of fearful importance, to the exam
ination and judgment of our countrymen.
