The Abolition orators and journal are
' growing frantic if fanaticism such a they
possess it susceptible of growth over this
idea of a strong and single power being
established at -Washington, having com
plete and unlimited control over all and ev
ery matter of, public iraj orur.ee, whether
of State or general iutereet. Ihus while
attempting to convince mankind that they
are truly patriotic, without it or ands"
Uvoring ttie restoration of the Union' or.
conditionally, they tell ua the only submis
sion required of the seceded Stated in or
der to secure peace is the abandonment of
Slavery and the recognition of ' one nation
ality." This new principle of a Federal
government . is of vastly more importance
to them than the Union. By it they can
forever dispense of Southern institutions
and bury the system of negro slavery. By
it they can suppress opposition to the Na
tional Administration and continue li hold
the reins of government. By it they can,
overthrow the grand and established prin
ciple oi States' Rights and disgrace the
wisdom rf our lalhers who declared that:
"Each State retains its sovereignty, tree
tlom, and independence, and every power,
jurisdiction and right, which is not by this
runlederuiion expiessly delegated to the Unit
ed States iu CtfUire3S assembled."
The moment fanaticism accomplishes
ibis end our liberties will be set aside, and
though this government may retain the
name aud outward masks ol a Republic it
will assume ttw power and privileges of a
Monarchy. Every Stale must then yield
its sovereignty ; each Governor must hold
his office by commission of the general
government, and it Legislatures are allowed
:o exist, in any (orms in the several States,
they conld only exist under control ol Con
urea and sut ject to the will of the Presi
dent. This principle instead ol securing
a permanent peace will cause or. ceasing
trouble and violent opposition, ending in a
revolution which will establish as many
indepandeut nationalities as there are stales
or result iu a single Military Despotisri..
We publish the Governor s Message en
tire, this week. If we can see the import
of bis words we are almost afraid Andt has
fallen in wi.h disloyal sayings and princi
ples. He dares to hold thai Pennsylvania
baa ome rights which Aekaham in his iu fi
nite poster ha attempted to avoid. He 00
doubt had forgotten that our beloved ruler
could do no wrong, and evidently it eicaped
his mind that Stales' Rights is a ''hellish
doctrine." If this is not the case ho could
he pretend that Pennsylvania had beeu
wronged by requiring too many soldiers
from her borders, ot why did he hae the
insolence to insult his majesty, A. Lincoln,
by saying: am still not ready 10 paruc
ipate actively in transferring to the United
Nates illegally the right of appointment
vested in the State."
. At tuc meeting of citizens, on Tuesday
evening, 10th iast., in the Grand Jury room
ol the Court House, called by the Directors
of Bloom School District, lo ascertain the
will of the people upon the subject ol rais
ing a bounty, lor volunteers, by taxation,
Cel. J. G. Freeze offered the following :
fieithed, That the School Directors be
requested 10 lay a tax authorized by Act ol
Assembly, to raise the bounties for volun
teers under the last call ot the Preaideni of
the- tailed States.
William Neal being opposed to the reso
lution offeied the following amendment :
That first, those liable to the dralt, should
be required to subscribe and pay thirty dol
lars each ; or raie a sum by voluntary con
tnbuuotis 10 the amount 7,620 doliirs.
The amendment was lost, and the reso
lotion ol Col.. Freeze sustained.
Another meeting- was held onr Friday
evening la. i. lo ascertain the amount o!
subscriptions. Upon adding the several
amounts reported by the committees it was
found that only a few hundred dollars wera
wanted to make theamouut required. This
'deficiency will soon be made up an then
steps can be taken to secure the voluuleer.

The Toronto Globe under the title ol i!MR
Siwabd's Pasppokt System," expresses
much uneasiness, and advocates immediate
retaliation, by a similar system of taxation
upon every Canadian desirous of proce&l
ing to ihe United States, and a further tax
upon every American entering that Prov
ince, equal in amount to the tax proposed
bj Wr. Seward's PasspQrt System. It is
claimed by them that ihey would then' act
upon the American principle and "keep a
gi-oJ deal of money in the country." It
would be to them a further benefit by ex
tending ihe trade with their mother country.
This would cut off a large amount ot trade
and profit from the United States. No
American would enter the British Provinces
unless compelled by business, and it is
considered no one will be detained by be
ing forced to pay an an additional (ax ol
six dollars to the Canadian authorities to
make the passport valid.
The Globe says:
We regard this order of Mr. Seward's a
I uncalled lor, unnecessary, and useless ; as
I an attempt to inflict injury on a people who
have been true to their engagements, and
who have kept their faith , a lar as mortal
man could do, untarnished. We ask tor its
, repeal ; laiiii.tr. which, ve recommend gov
ernment to take the stand which our
honor demands. We are quite prepared to
accept ail the consequence that may en
sue; and are better prepared than the blus
terers who have so long defied disaster,
when no disaster was near. And we tell
our American neighbors that if it be any

No project seems to be worth spending
a moment of time for, by loyal persons,
unless the Negro is in some manner con
nected with it. Congress has spent the ses

"A respectable number" of di&ree pectable
persons, made up from various professions
and trades lawyers, renegade Democrats
ho, as Mr. Brewster remarked ot himself,
became disgo-ted with the Irish descent of
the Democratic party and resorted to Afri
can society as more suitable to their nature,
preachers, white and black in color we
mean, for all were black in principle,
agents of commissions, sanitary and 4-sane-lary,
hbnds and moles, were in at
tendance to address the meeting. Ot course
lha white ' eto.bujetr7 first took the stage
and in the ardeui desire to prove their re
sped for the poor Alrican, preached equali
ty in public and in private relations, not
only as lo riding iu cars, but as voters,
office holders and even household compan
ions. This last idea impressed upon the
brain of one Rev. Doctor, of color, as strik
ing at amalgamation, who believing the
black race would thereby be corrupted
served a severe rebuke to the white breth
ren, by informing them that the Negroes
did not desire 10 stoop to amalgamation
with while 'pussoDS."
Our Sacrifice ofJjfe. It may certainly
be doublet if there was ever so great a loss
of human life in any war previous to lhat
we are now engaged in. The a-regaie
losses of our armies have not been officially
stated, as M Stanton has not yet given his
annual report to ihe country. But in the
absence of official data, we have the state
ments of the World " Druid," who has the
reputation of being well informed. He says
he North has furnished for the war the en
ormous amount of 3,133,000 men since
April 1861 ! Of this number 1,800,000 had
perished op to May, 1864, and since then,
we have lost 300,000 more. Here is a total
loss in three years and a half of over 2.000,
030 men in tryiog to subjugate the South
aud the work is not yet done, nor any near
er accomplished than it was at the begin
ning. Was not the declaration of the Dem
ocratic platform right in asserting lhat the
war bad been a failure 1

The Blair Peace Movement, is attracting
considerable attention among public circles.
Whether it is made in good faith or not is
yet to be learned When the facts are re
vealed we will give our readers an account
ol the results and object. We .notice that
the Confederate Congress is taking steps to
meet the project in a liberal manner. Mr.
McMullen of the Confederate House of
Representative, offered a preamble de
claring that by the principles of the Declar
ation of lndependar.ee and the Constitution
oS the Confederate States, the people, of
each said Siates in their sovereign capacity,
have a right to alter, and amend or abolish
the government under which ihey live ; and
thai because the people o! the Confederate
Stales have exercised this right, the United
States have made war against them ; and
that there exists a difference of opinion be
tween ihe respective 'authorities as to the
responsibility of ihe commencement of the
war ; connected with a resolution, assert
ing tne dignity of the Confederate govern
ment, and sending Commissioners to con
fer with similar Commissioners of the Uni
ted States "in regard to all outstanding
questions of difference between the two
governments and to agreee it possible, up
on the terms of a lasting and honorable
peace, subject to tne ratification of the re
spective governments aii'i of the sovereign
State respectively represented therein ."
General Order So. I.
If general order No. I, series of 18P5 is
an index of what is to ce the character and
policy of the' administration in future, we
could expect better things than have been
enacted heretofore. That ihe first general
1 order ct ibis year should have contained
mailer so important ?nd wise certainly is a
sign of wi.-dom ir Washington, where
nolhing but fanaticism has existed since
the fourth of March 1861. Bji while there

This morning Judge Kellogg, Terri orial
juae of Nebraska, a warm supporter ol
Yates during the senatorial contest, ap
proached Washburne. at the St. Nicholas
Hotel, and ex ended his hand to shake
hands with the whisky speculator. Wash
burne folded his arms, and remarked that
he did not shake hand with a 'd d scour.
drel and liar.'' Judge K. was taken aoack,
but made no immediate move upon the
enemy's works. Bui as Washburne was at
the depot this morning, boot leaving for
Chicago, Kellogg accosted him, and moved
upon him by ihe right flank, dealing him a
blow in the breast with his. fist. A rush
was made upon the belligerents, and the
provost snard, rushed in and dispersed the
mob. Kellogg, as he was being pulled
backwards, while still facing his opponent,
kicked the honorable Congressman several
times in t be rear. It was feared by some
of Washburne's friends that he had been
considerably it jareJ, but he was able to
get aboard the train audtis off for Washing
ton via Chicago. Sic transit ghrai m indi.
Last night, alter the senatorial caucus had
adjourned, Senator Ward of Cook, who had
been a violent Washburne man, and Joe
orrest, who was Yates' mo-t active sup
porter, chanced to meet at the "Biliic.''
Forrest charged that the whisky interest
beat I. N. ArnolJ for renomitiation kr Con
g"res in Cook county.
Senator Ward replied by using a beanti
ful poetical quotation to the effect thai 'For
reft was ad d liar.'
This riise l Forrest's Irish blood to its
highest pitch of wrath. It was loo much
for the son of an Irish'gentleman to swal
low. He retorted that Ward was. a ti J
son of a b h, and at once dealt an acu
lar blow, which caused the honorable sena
tor to recede ; but soon resumed ajaiu the
offensive, and ordered a;. charge along the
whole line. Being a man of powertul
physical strength, this chdrge was about to
overwhelm UjI. Forrest, and completely
disperse him. But Forrest was not maJ
ol the retreating material, and received tie
charge with a flourish ol a spittoon, which j kI10wn. nor ha het'een heard Irom since
he was'about to bring in violent collision j January 4th. General Hoo I has made a re

pressed. And when the angry passions
had partially subsided and reason asserted
her sway , the honorable senator from Cook,
remembering his offensive language, re
tracted, and the breach wa in a moment
healed. No blood was spilt.
The senatorial contest is now over. The
two cases above cited will fully illustrate
