11.1111.51 word for word, re-enacted. I t stsilds

proved 2d July of that year. It is in these
words :

must have been some rebel sympathizer.
Captain. Ton are correct. It was George
N.V. Woodward. In contending for imp
right to vote, Messrs. Longstreet and Whar
ton had used their argument:
Why should the bravo vAinteer be de
nied the priv.ilege and facilities of voting?
Is lie less intelligent ; less honest than those
who stay a t home ? is it against the spirit
of our institutions that he should lave those
titeiliti l iis . eitended to him, or
dues public policy demand his disfranchise
ment? ? W hy, then. this attempt to annul the
t.tatute securing to him these rights? Neither
the Constitution, the spirit of our institutions,
nor public policy demand it.
Judge Cunningham had used a similar ar
gument. In replying to it, WoOdWard took
occasion to fling at tis.stteli insults as these :
-Tho 48d : section "opens a wide door for most
odious fraud ;" that is, we can't act as

For, while,they went in for the whole coun
' try, he had particular leanings for the'South ;
while they stood by freedom, he went in for
slavery; while they shouted with Old Hickory,
" The Union, it must be preserved," he was
for changing and mending it to suit the bolds
of Virginia, and South Carolina, and Georgia,
and other places in the sunny South.
Sergeant. Hold on, captain; I think you
are a little too hard on Woodward. Have
you got the record for what you say
Captain. That] have! Here it is in black
and white. Here is a speech which he read
" at the great Union meeting in Philadel
phia, December 13, 1860.''
Sergeant. Is it genuine ?
Captain. See. It was printed at the Age
Aloe in 1863, and was scot out by Charley
Biddle, Chairman of the Democratic State
Central Committee, on the 10th of Septem
ber, 1863.
Now, let us see what, he says. On page 0
he ~..11.,
The South seems inclined to accept the
judgment of the people at the pulls in IStio.
.Everywhere in the South the people begin
ning to look out for the means of self-defence.
Could it be expected that they would' be in
,different to such events as have iiceurred ?
that they would be idle and see 'measures
concerted and carried iorward for the anni
hilation, sooner er later, of their property in
slaves. Such expectatiens, if indulged, are
not reasonable. And it appear:, to Inc that
therii !oust be a time in the progre,s of this
conflict, if it be indeed irrepressible, when
slaveholdcrs may lawfully fall inch uu their
ma twat right,, and employ in lit•rellet , of
their sieve proprriy whateve'r mean, of pro

the rights of the sla \ eholder, /111,1 ADD such

Private. And I too.
Crpinin. Yes, and I too ; but the old

won't do.
Private. By-the-Lye, while on that point,
I - remember a book we found at Frederick,i
burg, called '• for the South, or
he Failure of Free Society, by George Fitz
'ugh, Richmond, Va., 1851."
"We deem this peculiar question of nrgro
slavery of very little importance. The issue
is made throughiint the world on the
al subject of shivery in the abstract."
Ham, a son of Noah, was condemned to
slavery, and kis posterity Idler him- We do
riot adopt the theory that he was the ances
tor of the negro race. The Jewish slaves
were hot negroes, and to confine the justifi
cation of - slarry to that race would be to
weaken its Scriptural authority, and to lose
the whole woightof profane authority, for we
read of no negro slavery in ancient times."

suffered and done; but I suppose that is ex
actly what the Chicago Convention means by
an "armistice" and "suspension of hostilities."
It would be a great idea, boys, when a fel
low breaks into your house to rob and mur
der, and you get him knocked over, and just
need to give him a few more knocks, to al
low him to get up, recover, and at you again.
That would be an “armistice," "a suspen

can't go it. •

given in May, 1862. The Copperheads re
juiced. The Republicans and Union men
determined to stick by us, and have the-Con
stitution so amended as to g,ive'ris the right
to vote, without regard to Woodward's opin
ion. Accordingly on the 22d of Janitary,
1863, Mr. Johnson, n Republican, offered in
the Senate a joint resolution, to amend the
Constitution for this purpose. Mr. Bene
dict., a Republican, from Huntingdon coun

February. This resolution was

It comes to this: Little Mac has given us
up, and gone over, either in whole or in part,
and it don't make much difference which, to
the Chicago peace party.
When he was fighting with us for the

ain't for any man who would give "his voice

CORPORAL. That's well put. I ngreo with
you Mac, by - accepting the Chicago nomi
nation, has' gone in with its armistice talk,
joined himself with Bill Bigler, Vallandig

CAPTAIN. Over the left. There is a trick
in that. The othe day, when there was a
a talk of getting up a new convention, Ben

You know we are now on a par with the
Ohioans ; we've the right to vote. We got
the right in the face of the Copperhead op

Major. So I under;tand. 'But what con
clusion did you reach ?
Gip That we couldn't go Little Mac
and his Viru;ittia companion—Pendleton—
because we do not believe in giving up the
strug g l e when the re be arc on their last legs
—penned in, driven to the wall. We van t
a peace that will last, not one out of which
will spring a new war. As to McClellan,
we have hung on to him long; but he has
deserted our ranks and keeps company with
such men as VallandiOain. Long and Pugh.
What Major, do you think of the result of
our talk '!
Jlajoi•. All right. And I think I have
here what would load you to that conclusion,
if nothing eke would.
Ulpfain. What is it?
Abtior. The speech of our Gov. Brough,
at Circleville, to the returned one hundred
days men. I tell you he shows up the feel
ing of the Chicago Convention toward the
soldiers in capital style.
Captain. Let's have it. Read it ctut to
3 .111,
ilittjor. I will. It refers chiefly to the
resolution of that convention relative to sol
diers; but hear the Governor.
" There is a body of men several hundred
thousand strong, and with arms in their
bands, who are endeavoring to uphold the
dear old flag, and to bring us peace by law
ful means. There are four hundred thous
and men standing upon fields of the United
States under its banner, ready to lay down
their lives for the success of the Union
cause. There are four hundred thousand of
those, these scamps at Chicago i,vere angling

ing resolutions of armistice, .and calling
back the:army in disgrace, to let this bill go
without a little sugarcoating.' It is notori

the Chicago platform was ever‘found kind
ling a bonfire over a victory won by our
arins. [Cheers.] This is not a bare asser
tion. They do not rejoice in the -victories
won. No, but they "sympaihize':with the
soldiers who are standing under the old flag,
'and on the battle-field. Well, they. might
as well sympathize with horses that stood on
the battle-tleld, for the horses would care as
much about it as the soldier.; ; and the mules,
too. I don't know but the mules would have
kicked up their heels at their sympathies for
the soldiers, too.
The language of that resolution is simply
impudent; it is simply abuse. It is simply
cowardly, and means disgrace. With the
outward tongue it speaks in accents of affec
tion, but inwardly of the traitor• "We
sympathize with our soldiers." We don't
rejoice with them that their patriotism called
them forth to uphold that banner. We don't
sympathize with the brave that have gone
forth to die. We don't glory in anything
they do. We don't say their cause is just;
we don't thank them. We simply pity them.
Then what? Don't trust me for these
words, for although they are ground in my
memory, and burned into my brain. I won't
ask you to trust to my memory. "In the
event 'of our coming into power, they (the
soldiers) will receive all the care, protection,
-and regard that the soldiers of the Repub
lic have earned." If they come into power
which they are after—they wi•l protect and
-send them-to, their homes t -torsin /10 , 1110r0 by
hiking up arms against their Southern breth
ren. They shan't be punished because they
dared to fight agairst Jeff. Davis. They
shan't be put into prison ; there shan't any
harm come upon them ; ;hey will protect
them and send them out of danger. We
want their votes, and we must be kind to
them. And as the devil promised what did
not belong. to him, and what he could not.
give to Christ, these fellows promise their
protection ; and as that distinguished gen-'
ileman was cast out of heaven into the lower
regions, a similar fate awaits the Chicago
fellows. Look at the naked infamy at
tempted to be practised on the people by
the passage of this resolution. They want
the ordinary reader to suppose that they
intenl to compliment the soldiers for do
ing what they have done. But they
don't mean any sue]] thing. If they had
meant it, why could they not have said :
"\\'e tender our thank: to our brave sol
diers who have been upholding our flag
against armed rebellion ?•' They could not
say it, because the train'-s: did not mean it.
Captain. That's sharp talk.
'Corporal. Yes ? but just. What do we
want with the sympathy of 'such men, as
composed the Chicago Convention'? That s
Nair stuff for soldiers.
Private. We don't forget the votes of
that part of them who were in Congress.

until voting time. Major, your Governor
understands Intl Lora.
Sergeant. By the ,way, what floes the
Baltimore platform say on that subject?
Major. I think I have it. Here it is.
“Resolved, That the thanks of the Atheri
can people are due to the soldiers and sailors
of the army and navy who have perilled their
lives in defence of their country, and in vin
dication of the honor of the flag ; that the
nation owes to them sonic permanent reeog
nition of their patriotism and their valor,
and ample and permanent provision for those
of the survivors who have received disabling
and honorable wounds in the service of tile
country ; and that the memories of those
who have fallen in its defence shall he held
in grateful and everlasting remembrance.”
Captain. Boys, that, hes a different ring.
You get thanks there, and are to be rein-in
hered fur your noble deeds—not pitied. Your
wounds and scars are considered honorable
in that resolution ; and you are to be hand
ed down to the future, nut as objects of sym
pathy, but of care, if ever your wants and
condition require it, and of honor and glory
under alleireumstances. What a difference!
Major. Well, out of the abundance of
the heart the mouth speaketh, the pen writes,
and resolutions flow.
Captain. And that is another argument
against :;11eClellan. The very president of
the coilirbntion that nominated him—the
great talker and plito nor of that convention—
couldn't allow the bill giving New York
eoldiors the right to vote to go along with
out vetoing it. If Mac dont't feel and
think like Seymour, he paver woold have
touched him.
Lieut. Colonel. Well, that closed-up
question. Men only shout on and uphold
those ye hosb sentiments and aims are like
their, own. Virtue admires virtue I vice
atickt to vide ; devils praise devils ; unfallen
angels adore God ;'.disloyalty' worships dis
loyalty ; patriotism eulogizes patriotism.
Judged by these truths, Mac can't get any
favors from us.

a fraud throughout, it has no more claim to

Major. Yes, and all the sympathizers

IT ashinyton Chronicle.
Alexander 11. Stephens, rebel Vice Presi
dent says, in his recent letter, that this is a
"cruel and remorseless war." This is un
doubtedly true. But how could it be other
wise? In the inscrutable order of the uni
verse slavery found footing, on till; 6tintinont;
and imbruted the character of the southern
people. Opposing it at first, they came at
length to adore the institution with an abso
lute idolatry, and they practised without re
morse the horrid cruelties which it naturally
engendered. They sent ships with brutalized
crews to drag the unfortunate victims from
their African homes, to toil without reward
or hope on southern plantations. Row the
poor slaves were stinted, and driven, and
scourged we need not reiterate. When it is
known that tlie planters of Louisiana delib
erately calculated that it was better to work
the slaves to death in a short term of years,
and renew the stock by continual purchases,
we may from some faint conception of the
baneful influence of slavery over the human
heart. Whilst the bondman was degraded to
the level of a submissive brute, his master's
violent instincts became unavoidably excit
ed, and•he often displayed a tiger-like fero
It was impossible that men could use the
lash daily on unretitiating, men and women
without becoming "cruel and remorseless."
Even had the slaves been well fed and clad,
with comfortable lodgings and the allowance
of don estic affections, the infliction of daily
turtufe to insure the, reatest amount of task
work must be a terrible example to place be
fore the eye of the planter's Jeffer ,
son, himself a slaveholder. described the evil
vividly and deplored it with a deprecating
forecast. No wonder the young whites were
early tyrants, and carried their ferocity be
yond plantation limits ; no wonder the duel
became an institution, and street assassina
tion so common that it ettaSed to excite sur
prise or reprobation. Of course such people
were "cruel and remorseless" even in peace
ful linies ; and to what a pitch their fury
might arise w hen they become combatants
in war, we have seen clearly enough by the
light of a thousand fiendish outrages, from
the desecrated graves of Bull Run to the in
human massacres of Lawrence end Fort
Pillow. Savages could do no worse. The
scene around Fort Henry in the ante-revolu
tionary days, or those on the river Rusin in
our second war with Great Britian, present
no spectacle more horrid and revolting.
In thus assuming that to the southern par
ticipants in this war are chiefly duo the acts
which make it "cruel and remorseless," we
claim no peculiar virtue for our northern
' people. They, as well as southern people,
are what circumstances have made them.—
We got rid of the debasing and hardening
institution many years ago, whilst the south
hugged it to its bosom because it was deemed
profitable. Tints the slaveholder became a
hard and cruel man, practicing the gainfutin
iqui ty, and becoming so hostile to his fellow
countrymen who had abolished it, that he
set upon innocent persons merely because of
their northern birth, killing, torturing and
robbing many of them oven before the rebel
Congress declared war against us. We might
justly, for such atrocities alone, have had re
course to arms. But wo forebore, and with
p, degree of patient endurance that claims
commendation from every disciple of peace;
we waited to ace if some avenue of escape
'inight'not ho opened to us. Only when to
multiplied private wrongs of this discriptitin
was added armed and organized rebellion
against the supreme authority did we rally
to save the republic itself from destructio'.

NO, 35.
It will be a vote for the repudiation of the
national debt, involving the destructioir of
property. and the overthrow of business.:•
It will be a vote for anarchy and•cbdps at
It will bo a vote for •national degradation
It will be a vote against civilization itself.
It will be a vote for the kingdom of Satan
on earth.
On the other hand a vote for Abraham
Lincoln willte, first and foremost for
Freedom, Union and . Peace, that political
trinity under whose-guardianship we place
the repul , lic. It will be a vote also to flx Rut
influence and good name of our boltiitry, do
that it shall become the pride of history. It
will le a vote for civilization itself. Athome
it wil, secure tranquility throughout the
whole land, with freedom of travelandspeech,
so that the eloquence 01 Wendell Phillipsmay
be enjoyed at Richmond and Charleston as
it is now enjoyed at 'New York and Boltoh,
and the designation of " border States," now
exclusively applicable to interior States, will
be removed, so that our only " border States"
will be on Canada at the North and Nexico
at the South. Doing all this at borne, it
will do much more abroad, for it will secure
the triumph of American institutions every
Surely all this is something to vote for.
And you will not hesitate. Forward, then,
in the name of Freedom, Union and Peace:
Crush the enemy everywhere. Crush him
on the field of battle. Crush him at the
ballot-box. And may the November elec
tion bo the final peal of thunder which shall
clear the sky and fill the heavens with glory..
A Lotter From John Bright.
In giving to the public the following im-.
pressive and timely letter from the most indo- .
fatigable and influential British vindicator of
our National struggle for existence, HIS fit --
that we should say that it was in no mariner --
solicited or invited. While we for thirteen
years have personally known and honored
JOUN BRIGHT, we have had little correspon
dence with him, and have never sought there
by to enlist his sympathies in the cause of the
Union. But he is a tirM believer in the jue-.
tice, safety, and beneficence of Human Free
dom ; he knows that our slaveholdcrs' revolt
is en aristocratic uprising against democratic
light and liberty; and his heart is wholly
with us because he realizes that our success
is the triumph of humanity and Progress.
We ask special attention to what he says of
the identity in Great Britain of 'the Rebel
sympathizers with the advocates of McClel
lan's election. Let every hearty Unionist,
of whatever name or sect, weigh well these
words of the foremost of British Reformers :
—N. Y. Pribunc.
ROCHELLE, Oct. 1, 1864.
DEAR SIR: For more than three years, the
people of this country have watched, with a
constant interest, the progress of the great
conflict in which your people have bean en
gaged ; and, as you know, some have rejoiced
over the ternperary'success of the enemies of
your Government, and some have
men ted them.
-At this-moment,_we turn _our_ey : Ps rather
to the political than to the military struggle
and there is with us, the satne difference of
opinion and of sympathy, as regards your
coming Presidential Election, that has beon
manifested is connection with your contest
in the field.
All those of my countrymen who have
wished. well to the rebellionovhahave hoped
fur the break-up of your Union, whola - ve
preferred to see a Southern Slave Empire
than a restored and free Republic, so far as I
can observe, are now in favor of the election
of Gen. McClellan. All those who have de
plored the calamities which the leaders of
Secession have brought upon your country,
who believe that Slavery weakens your pow
er acct tarnishes yuur good narne thioughout
the world, and who regard the restoration of
your Union as a thing to be desired and
prayed for by all good men, sQiiitrzas Lean—,
judge, are heartily longing for there-election
of Mr. Lincoln. Every lriend Of your Un
ion, perhaps, in Europe, every speaker and.
writer who has sought to do justice to your
cause since the war began, is now hoping,
with an intense anxiety, that Mr. Lincoln
way be placed at the head of your Executive
for another term.
It is not because they believe Mr. Lincoln
to be wiser and better than all other mon on
your continent, but they think they have ob
served in his career a grand simplicity of
purpose, and a patriotism which knoWs no
change and which does not falter. To somo
of his countrymen, there may appear to
. have
been errors in his course. It would ~be
strange incleceif in the midst of difficulties
so stupendous and so unexpected, any ttdmin
ist ration or any ruler should wholly avoid
mistakes. To us, looking on from this dis
tance, and unmoved by the passions ,frbin
which many of your people cat hardly be
expected to be free—regarding his l'residoo
tial path with 'the calm judgment which be
longs rather to history than to-the present
time, as our outside position enables us, in
some degree, to regard it—we aee in it an
honest endeavor faithfully to do the work of
his great office, and, in the do(ng of it, a
brightness of personal honor on which no
adversary has yet been able to fix a stain;
l•believe that the effect of Mr. Zinc°inls
re election in England, and in Europe, and
indeed, throughout the world, will be this:
it will convince all men that the integrity — of
your great country will be preserved, aridit
will show that Republican Institutionsiftoith
an instructed and patriotic peqple,-ct,tirboitr
a nation safely and steadily .through the
nao!st desperate perils. '. " "'
