times to get down the names of settee whose

folly satisfied that there were a great many
votes east, without names to correspond on

draw ray name es a candidate for the oMee of
Mayor. As to the contest in the Eighth
Ward, I may be pormitteff to say that I had
neither part nor lot In It. Tho contest was
not made by my advice. I requeated my del
egates to anstain me, to lenges it was consist.
ant with their honor and self-respect, and eon
sisifint with justice to other parties. I thank
the elegates for the cordial end determined
support which they have given me, and I also
express my thanks to those citizens who have
interested themselves in my behalf at the
ballot.hox. But I cannot longer permit my
name to be used, lot the harmony and efficien

been taught to regard the interests of the
Forty as of first importance, while these of in
dividuals are merely secondary. I therefore
ask leave to withdraw my name, believing
that under existing circumstances, the good
of the party require, that I should sink ul

Never, perhaps, bee a modern poet, in this
western world, been so much In danger of
having to criticise his verses in the not very
self-battering strain suggested by the well
known line of a Boman poet, who, viewing
the triumphs of art, when the 'running hand'
of the artist was impreesed on gold and eme
rald and carbUncle, exclaimed: "The work
manship eeenss even to surpass the material!"
—as the author of "Bitter-Sweet" mesPhave
felt when thin exquisitely beautiful edition of
his truly exquisite poem. was first pot before
him. And yet, as the gold and the gems were
worthy of the artist's skill end pains, so these
verses of our poet, precious in their troth to
nature, their fidelity to truth, their sympathy
and spirituality, reserve but their _dile in the
homage which art' bas here rendered unto
them. Beautiful exceedingly, too, is the
form—is every in.stanco—of that homage.
The eighty illustrations executed in the
highest style of art, from original
drawings by E. .1. Whitney, Esq., deserve
the very highest praise. We MI isadily adopt
the language of the Now York Commercial in
speaking of them and. say that they are "ex-
quieitely !weariful—the desiges eminently
chaste and appropriate. They are gems in
deed. Some of there Ikautiful pictures are
engraved by Air. Whitney himself, and the
remainder by artist, of the highest skill and
reputation. Never, perhaps, did artists de
ign so faithfully and delicately illueram the
sentiment and narrative of a text, and never,
rcrh.spe, did text supply more pure and sic
rating and thoroughly enteral thought and
sentinv et to make the finest powers and
geoid- f the artist. Altogether, this superb
edttiou of Bitter Sweet is one of the most ,
bean , and :nuch-to.be-corot•d gift books
that t••-• American press has yet produced."
Among .1.4 crowd of illu.trated books, many
rf them snore costly, many of them of more
imposing proportions, which we found on the
wril.filled and extensive photon and counters
of nor irked, Mr. It. S. boric, corner of !

Doctor's theory is, that when the blood is

resolutions referring the various branches
of the President's message to the appropriate
Committee, and that spart with reference
to the treatreeot and condition of the retool
lions States, to a Salem Committee of nine, to
be appointed by the Speaker.
Mr. Davis, of Md.,offered as a substitute,
that so much of the resident'. message as re
lates to the duty of the United States to gear- -
antes to every State a republican form of
government, that has been abrogated or over
thrown, to a Select Committee of nine, who
shall report the bills necessary to tarry sate
offset this duty.
31r. Brooks, of N. T., said if the preposi
tion of Mr. Davis should be passed, Le should
demand that this special committee also en
quire whether the Republican Gorernment
bee not been abrogated, and overthrown In
the North as well ns in the South since the
Mr. Lovejoy said that in era of certain
individuals there still 'lista a Republican
Gevernmeat in the North withoot infringe
meet or abatement. He was fee the Constitn
tion ae it is, and the Union as it was : and
not es interpreted. Ile would dispossess the 1
einvehelder of the Union as he would thee, 1
who had invaded the Chesapeake. He woo:d j
put a loyal crew on board and eall the good
ship Union s our fathers had done it.
Sir. Davie, of fiy.,eolled up the resolutions
in relation to the exchange of prisonere,
arguing vehemently against the policy of re- j
fusing to exchange our suffering white eel-
diem—the languishing, .tarries and diseared I
white men, becau,s, the rebels refuse to ex- 1
change negro captives. Ho denounced at
length the policy of the Administration upon
the serered poiots in which the negro it af
fected, characterizing. its position es mon•
strous, end referring to the present era as the ,
reign of Abraham I. He averred that his
own loyalty was unspotted; that he hated, ;
with undying rigor, the crime of secession. 1
It was evident that this policy was only a part 1
of that design to perpetuate the pasty power i
of the Adcoloatration. Ito closed with on ;
indignant and earnest protest against the re- i
fusel of the Admialstratien to liberate thou-' '
sands of starring and dying white moo far I '
the sak• of • few negroes.
Mr. Jelfraon deemed it perfectly clear that
humanity, which I. the highest polity, de
manded the continuance of the exchange of
prisoner,. Ile proceeded to combat the opin
ion of the Senator from Kentucky, Doris,
that these men should not be.protected, and
corrected his views of the power of tho Pres
ident by quoting from the Constitution rela
tive to the executire and legislative powers.
Mr. Devil. replied by laying that a previa
hie of the Constitution confers no power In
the govmument; the Supreme Court Mid so
interpreted It. He also claimed that the
President had no right to suspend the writ of
habeas corpus, which was a legislative, not
an executive junction. The powers to Le
exercised, are conferred by the Constitution
clone, and there ,p no power rested in the
government, • Lich is opt conferred by toe
Constitution. Deuce, the President cannot
raise troop. °risen:Li...tor has he the pow, r to
organize meat area to put down an insurrection
without the assent of Congress. It was the de
terminetion of the party in pewee that the
war shell eoutioue Until the next Presidential
election. The war would hare been brought
to n eh,' if the Administration had sincerely
and In good faith Berated Itself to the princi
ples announced in the Crittenden resolution,
nail If the commanders of the armies had not
been selected, cot because of their hostility to
the rebels, but because of their opposition to
Mr. Ilefe r -of IL il.,,xese to indignantly
deep that it eras the desire of the gentlenien
on this floor to continuo the war in order to
intlaeuee the next Presidential election. A
more atrociou, allegation against the honor-
able men never was Listened to from the be-
ginning of time to thepresent moment. It
the allegations of the Senator were true, he
would sooner aka into his own hands the
hand of a man from the charnel house, reek-
with pestilence, than the hand. of those
around him. If the allegation was true, then . ,
every Senator was stamped with the foulest
treason nod perjury. The destinies of the 1
country have been submitted to the gentle.
men around hint, who ore bound by their oath
to sustain the country and the Constitution
sod to defend the firesides and homes threat
ened by invasion, while the Senator from
Kentucky says they are hypocritee, and do
not mean to sustain these objects. -
MT. Doris explained that he had reference
to the men in power.
Mr. Halo replied that the Senator had tootle
an allegation which embraced every• Senator. ;
It was an Itilestatiun which, if true, would die- '
grace the rites Inmates of a penitentiary.
Tho character of the President was also in
cluded in this allegation. Ile believed eon
thing, that met everybody's assent, that Lin
coln is eminently an honest, patriotic man.
To-day, for the first time, he had heard the
honesty and patriotism of that Executive
questioned. It the Government hie called for
black soldier. to take up arms, and calls them
out to fight the battles of the conntry, it is
bound to protect them at all hazards, end by
every agency it can put forth. The Govern
ment having used them, and they having be
come prisonen., and if they are abandoned
to :heir fate, it is guilty of baseness un
heard of in history. The party In power
has one elm, and that aim is the country •,
but one purpose, and that is the salvation of
the country. The idea that the administra
tion and its supporters desire the continuance
of the war in crier to control the next Presi
dential eleotion--desire this cruel war with
its cries of anguish, our eons given to .laugh
ter, our widows in moonoing, and our kindred
driven to destitution—is an insinuation sob.s
that he wondered that it found its way neon
loathe fertile brain of the Senator from Ken
tucky. [Applause in the galleries.]
