ridicules the Fredericksburg route to the
former city, and says that the only sensi
ble plan was that pursued by lfcCutt.e.
Atax. K. MeCt.rai has writteri a
letter indignantly denying that he-used
the language attributed WI him by the
Chamberaburg Vigley iSpiritoand=published
by us a few; weeks ago. The Colonel is
plainly of; the - opinion that truth and
good genre are things to be ashamed of.
If the malcontenbi in the North do
not like a Republican President, let them
emigrate-co Jeff. Davis' dominions, where
they can have Democratic rule ; if they
are in favor of Slavery let them go where
they can enjoy slavery. No one in the
loyal States has any desire to retain them
against their will, and When a mi.n can so
easily have his tastes , gratiSed, he should
at once avail himself of the opportunity.".
Suppose that this style of reasoning had
prevailed on the part of • die '"Governt
meat" during the Meziean war, to what
punishment would our , Grroffi neighbors
have been subjected ? We hare yet to
read a speech delivered by any, person,
within the past two years; which contain
ed language one-third as violent against
the Administration as the Ga:eUe used in

• One or the most annoying things to the
Abolitionists is the coolness and good spi
rit with which'Democrats accept and turn
to ridicule all the slang terms that the.
former aro in the habitiof nicknaming
them. The titles of "Copperhead " and
" Butternut," which are their most recent
inventions in this:way, instead of beitig
regarded by the,Democrats as a reproach,
have thus been amiably adopted by them,
much to the disgust of their political en
emies. It. is this happy faculty of the
Denaoct atic organization which constitute's
one of its chief elements of sucOss. , No
amount of ribaldry, abuse 1) r perseention
can drive -its members ii , oru
auce to principle, or intimidate them from
the exprestAion of their`doCtrines. The
Demobratic part), is, emphatically a good
natured party. It feels strong in its own
sense of right, and having long , ago be
come accustomed to the extravagances of
, the opposition, it laughs every new nick
'iname ,to scorn which they invent, as a
',joke! it can well afford , to submit ;to,
and Which will do it no permanent harm.
Ilad it not been for this happy quality of
the Democratic organization, the violence,
the fertility of falsification, and the fa
natical spirit of enterprise in the'Opposi- ;
. tion leaders would have destroyed it, long
We suggest to our Kepi])linen , breth•,
ren that if they think they cari'put doWn
the Democracy by the system of 'strate
gy"-they have pursued since the war be
gan, they may as well give up the attempt
at once, for it will certainly fail. pemo
crata can be coaxed by kindness; but
they will never be cowed by threats'. They
will continue as iii the past to : laugh over
four eccentricities, and to fight your prin
ciples ; and the more you vituperate them
the more united they' will be in standing
up, for the Union, the Constitution and .
the rights of the white men of the worth.
We have some items from Richmond
papers of a late date. The editors Claim
to hay/gained a great victory over HOOK
sa, and exaggerate the Union loss_ and
Confederate advantages. A rebel surgeon
makes their loss 900 ki11ed,,7,000 wound
ed, and 1,200 prisoners. The Richmond
Enquirer of the 7th confesses to a loss of
from eight to ten thousand, beside four ;
teen guns, and says they have taken thir: ,
ty-five guns and some-ten thousand priso- ,
Gen. Floosia has issued an address to
his soldiers, in which he asserts that the
army " by its recent movements has ad
ded new. laurels to its former renown ;
has made long marches, crossed rivers,
surprised t..e enemy in his intrenchments,
and inflicted heavier blows than it receiv
ed. It has , taken 5,000 prisoners, 15 col
ors, 7 pieces of artillery, disabled 18,000
of the enemy, destroyed his depots, com
munications, stares, captured prisoners
'within - the entrenchments of his capital,
and filled his country with consternation ;
and the offioers and soldiers have no oth
er regret than for the loss of their bravo
companions, who haVe fallen in—the best
cause ever submitted to the arbitrament
of battle."
A Boma correspondent of,the Springy
field Republican dilates with 'enthusiasni
upon the oratorical abilities of the new
Abolition stump speaker, Miss Amur.
DICKINSON. After -speaking of her " cul
ture," ability, beauty, and good services
in the Connecticut and New Hampshire
campaifins, he exclaims in a . tone of ex
ultant ardor ; " Why not make Miss DICK
INSON the next President?" The sugges
tion' is eminently appropriate. A party
that once supported Fazio:me for the
Chief Magistracy of the Union ; which
has such a baby as Sums= for its leader;
which keeps granny Srawroit at the head
of the War Department ; and has filled the
leading offices of the , country with imbe
ciles, would fitly cap the 'annex of its
career by nominating Miss DICINSON as
its next candidate for President. They
should do so by all means. It would be
the right woman in the right place. ,
A cOiIictSPONDENT of the Boston ?3'iV43-
cript, an Abolition print of the deepest
dye, says, with truth - approaching to
"treason t o "
"Only those who have been hronght in
' to personal contact with the agents of the
' government, know the utterly corr u pt
and mercenary motives which, control
their action. I haw little doubt that go•-
•ernment. is being swindled as few govern
ments ever were before."
The Transcript had.t , etter take scare of
what people istite to it from Forteleas•

is dated—or iti editors , may be arrested
for disloyalty. ,very patriot must say of
Mr. Liacota4 Administration : "What
ever is, is right." 'Never mind the agents

The Republican party journals profess
to desire a iinite4'NOrth, and to lament
that the people in the free tales ado dot
think alike and act • togetillr. Ther*is
'ust one way, says the New Yri Eipitss: s,
to secure this unity of
,sentikm4t -
Cop at the North, and that ts-litor theito
cusirs to cease to be party Men and to be•
come patriots. Long speeches are made,
and longer reports printed,, in order to
calumniate ton Of thousands of loyal men,
'ho arecaliedisaiters f sympathissra; eopL
perheads, and by every opprobrious epi•
that which a bad taste and worse temper
can command. Pray, is this the way) to
unite the North?. Can it be done by prov
ing party men, while abusing persons, cer
tainly not mofe partisan; and far more
national, than themselves ? Can it be by
insisting upon the extreme' party meas
ures, like the terms of the• Conscription
Act and the Proclamations of September,
1862, apd of January, 1863 t Can it be by,
declaring that all who are not'for the Ad
ministration' are enemies of Abe - Govern
ment? Can it be by maligning the millions
at. the .North, •who,. while they have no
confidence in the political policy of the
Ailtainistrati?n, desire to support the . Go
vernment and suppress the Rebellion t or
by calling all men of Peace, Compromise
and Good Will, traitors:
Those who suppose the war can end by
means and agdncies like these, mistake
slue hutnan nature and a. wholesome
public opinion. Reason may -convince
men of their error, as erroroestses to be
dangerous when reason is left,jo combat
it ; \kfut men are never won by the abuse
and .alttrany which form just now the
chief taple of secularly leading men and
press is that support the Administration,
whether right or wrong. One may do
that for the (4overnnient whtn in
trouble . or in peril, but never for party
men, party objects, \ and party machinery.
.At a meeting of the "Sixth Ward Re
publican Association" of i, i `Teky York city,
the ' gpeakers were WENDELL PIIILLIPS,
each of whom, the accounts say, were re
ceived with "trethendousapplause.""lt is
one of the most alarming signs of the
times, that these three men, who only two\
years 4;c),,,wer r e not acknowledged as lead
ers I,y - narge potion of- the Republicans,
have become their accepted and moat pop
ularones now. WENDELL PIIILLIP.3 , boast

paper still keeps at its head the atrocious
sentiment that our noble' Constitution,
Made by iiissipscioN, MADISON, LIAMILTON
and their patriot 'coMpeers, is a" taupe
with death and a covenant with hell." Is
it any wonder that conservative citizens
distrust the Unionisni . of a party which
accepts these men as the expounders of
its faith, and the pilots of its course?

The rumor was; of course, started by
the Abolitionists, who would be intensely
gratlfied if it was true. It is another proof
of the fact we have so frequently asserted,
that the opposition journals are the ones'
thagive encouragement to the rebels.---/
By their reiterated charges that the North
is - full of traitors, the Southerners have
become convinced that there is a large
party here ready to assist them at the first
favorable opportunity, and are thus , in
duced to persevere in their treasonable
efforts. 4 nothing. the radicals so
much desire as to i force the Democratic
pa;:ty into direct and forcible antagonism
with the Adniinistration. With theintent
to accomplish this treasonable purpose,
they passed unconstitutional laws in the
most odious form possible. They will fail
in this foul attempt,' tis in everything else
they have undertaken.
As Oi.raiuz,—lt is nothing less than a
puibliCinsult, a national disgrace; an out
rage upon our brave soldiers in the field,
that simultaneously i with the progress of
a great battle,•in it& results perhaps deci
sive of the fate of a nation, newspapers
should parade detailed accounts of a bru
tal prize fight, in which two wretchedan4
depraved creatures are presented to us as
objects for our regard. Is thia a commu
nity of barbarians, that at such a time the
public cares for these brutes, or what they
;do, so long as their pkwer for injury is ex-
I pended on each otheil? Yet the fact that
their explisits•are proclaimed through the
press with such zest and disgusting detail,
amounts too direct affirmation that pop
ular sentiment is so debised as to demand
aliment like this, even when our comrades
'are engaged by thousands in a mortal
a rugglei„ and our political institutions al
.. :st on the verge of - dissolution. For it
will be asked, if this is not so, would such
stuff find its way into print? The charge
is a libel on the American people.
The Cincimiati Eripirer says : Mr. As
koLD2of lUi iois, in. a'-r cent interview
with the Secretary of War,'rtTzertaitteddite
terms of the forthcoming, conscription.—
The action under the law will be fi rst, to
return to the army all absentees tubkde
seders second, the draft will be made
first in those States and districts which
have failed to', furnish their quota under
calls heretofore made ; i third, such of the
States as hAve furnished more than their
proportions of volunteers heretoforecilled
for,will be credited with such excess, and
no draft - will probably be ordered in such
States until the number of troops furn-
ished by the several States shall have been
equalized by drafts' in those States which
are behind.
TUX arrest of Mr, VALLANDINGLIAM will
undoubtedly givo.great joy to the rebels.
A few days ago the Richmond Enquirer,

From the hour that Hooker crossed th

evidence of generalship, in his movement
There was a mournful ridiculousnnas
. in
the columns of fulsome praise whiclt were
published in radioalpapers;about hitnand
his plans, since from the moment he went
into action, there has beeWcontintud and,
increasing evidence that he had no plan
which could be carried out s , in the fine of
• vigilant foe, and that he must timeline-
ly sacrifice his whole army lin a vain bet!
tie, where success' was hopeless; . We
heard of his leading chargesi in person, and
.if the correspondents who *releases. so
counts are to be believed; heezhibitai
that personal bravery which has always
been his characteristic, anii that io4l neg
lect of the duties of a comManding gener
al Which must indicate the real bows
of the failure of his movement; Let-him
receive all the praise duets courage ; but
let as at the same time acknowledge the
truth, which cannot, for n moment be
doabted; that the failure of the battle is
due to the incompetency of theNsimmand
ing general. -
He should never'have divided hisi;army,
as he didin fact, by three rivers. Feria long'
as there was no communidation btitween
his right and centre and the city of i Fred
ericksburg, just so long he was practically,
separated from Sedgwick'S forces I y the
Rapidan, the north fork of, the Rappalum
mock, and the RappaluumoOk at Falmouth.
-It was no strategy thus to place his army
in a position of great weakness, 4d ex
pose it to the defeat it instained.i The
proof of the strategy is in 14e result:l Alia
for that result I Neither was there any
strategy in crossing the river at all. 1 There
hat been no time within" some Months
when that movement could not have been Hooker: It could have been
inadci by Burnside quite as easily! The
rebels never even erected batteries Ito, op
pose it , the crossing at :that point did
not threaten them seriously.. The ipublic

mg position on the flank, and eveniin'the
rear of the enemy. We h i ve never been
on his flank at all, except , to far as being
some miles distant and to e Westward of
him may be said to be on is flank. But
his rear .has never for a' momimt been
open to us. On the contrtai, by crossing
at the point selected we eitpoted coir right
wing to the attack made in overwhelming
force—an attack for whi4h the enemy
could well afford to abar4lon hisl works
behind the city, sure of his abiUty to re
take them after beating blok our right.—
Nor was there any truth in the reiterated
statements that we had cut! off theenemy's
line'ef retreat. At no moment hat there
been any difficulty in hir-jretreat toward
Richmond. His rear :has airs* been
open and clear, and the fiaositiian !of our
forces at Chancellorsville has not; for fin
instant disturbed his hall isosseeticeii of the
southern approaches to hie fortificatione,
the only approaches alonglwhich hQ would
under any circumstanced 'be likely to fall
back if lie so desired. I • I
The whole history therefore !is :this :
Hooker had the largest aid the finest ar
my ever under command of an Anierioan
General. He placed that , srmy inn, most
exposed and dangerous s t osition ; ; i so ex
posed and unskillful in respect.e, that
the rebels came ontoftheii intrenclimeatk

The Court• Martial of Hon. C. L. Val
On yesterday evening permission was
given to the press, by Gen. Burnside, to
publish the proceedings had before the
military Court-martial on Wednesday and
Thursday, in the trial of Hon. C. Lc - Val
laudighans. The evidence before the Court
was fully reported. but as an official record
of all the proceedings has been requested
of, and granted by Gen. Burnside, we will
postpope the publication of the testimony
adduced until after such record has been
furnished, which will probably be in time
for our issue tomorrow. We give, how
ever, the charges and specifications,. under
which Mr. Vallandigham was arrested and
tried, and his protest as to the proceedings
had by the. military authorities. Thelfol
lowing is the charge and specification I ,
, Charge—Publicly expressing , in viola=
Lion of General Orders No. 38, from
Headquarters Department of the Ohio, biz
sympathies with those - in arms against the
GoVernment of the United States, declar
ing disloyal sentiments and opinio ns, with
the object and purpose of weakening 'the
power of the Government in its efforts to
suppress an unlawful rebellion.
Specification—ln this that the saldelem-'
ent L. Vallandighane, a citizen of the
State of Ohio, on or about the Ist day of
May, 1863, at Mount Vernon, Knox co, 0.
did publicly address a large meeting of
'citizens, and did utter sentiments In words,
or ine-..t., as follows: Declaring the pres
ent war "a wicked, cruel and unnecessary
war ;"'"a war, not being wasted for the pre
servation of the Union;" "a war for the
purpose of crushing out liberty, and erect
ing a despotism;" "a war for the freedom
of the blacks and the enslaving of ' the
ithitese. slating "that if the Administra
tion had so wished, - the war could have
been honorably terminated months ago-"
that "peace might' have bee 4 honorably
obtained by listitnin to the proposed in
termediation of ;" that "proposi
tions by which the Sou ern States could
be won back, and the South be guaranteed
'their rights under the Constitution, had
been rejected the day before the late bat.
tle of Fredericksburg, by Lincoln and his
minions," meaning thereby the President
of the United States and those under him
in authority; charging that "the Govern-
Meng of the United States were about to
appoint military marshals in every district
to restrain the people of their libertiya, to
deprive them or their rights and priviligse
chavacterizing General Order No. 38, from
Heeklquarters Department of the Ohio, as
"a base amrpation of arbitraiy authority,
"inviting hielieelers to resist the tame by
saying," "The spoiler the . people inform
the minions of usurped power that they
will not submit to such restrictions ,upon
theirliberties the better:" declaring that
"he was at all times and upon all occasions
resolved to do what he could to defeat the
attempts now being made to build up a
monarchy upon the mini of our free gov
ernment; asserting that he firmly believed,
as he said six months ago, "that the men
in power are attempting to establish a
despotism in this country more cruel sold
More oppressive than ever existed be
fore."- '
All of which opinions and sentiments he
well knew did aid ' comfort and encour
age those in anus against thegorerinient,
and could but induce in his hearers a dis
trust of their own Government and sym
pathy for those in arms against it, and a
disposition to reijst the laws of the land.
