the legal representatives of law and order
should stoop to a discussion of the policy
of Obedience with those who are!arro
gantly engaged in armed rebellion. When
Abraham Lincoln was inaugurated, he
took,possession of the government and
its property by virtue of the oath impos
ed upon him by the Constitution.: He
found ono portion of the people in open
rebellion to the laws he was sworn to
maintain and enforce. While he had
scarcely been in power two moeths,:when
the leaders of this same rebellion violent
ly seized the public property, impiously
assailed the flag of the nation.by as im

representatives of our nationality. Was
it just and right the Chief Magistrate of
a powerful people should cringingly be
se4ch the leaders of a mad insurrection
to 'impose terms of peace?' Would it
comport with the dignity and grandeur
of the Presidential officers to seek inter
views with traitors, implore them to de

power of the government, and retrace
their steps to the loyalty they lied desert

conceive and proclaim such notions do so
from motives of real sympathy for treason.

is unequal to this task—if there is no

in the enemy's' encampment.
!'On Sunday morning, Siegel, fearing
that the enemy might recover and attempt
to cut his command from Springfieldifell
back on that city, where the Some Guards
were stationed. Then, fearing that the
greater,numbers of the enemy might in
duce them to get between him and Rolla,
he concluded to fall back on Rolla.
Ninety rebels were captured, including
a Colonel of distinction. The sword and
horse of Ben. McCulloch were among the
trophies of the field of battle, and it was
reported that McCulloch, was killed.
Reinforcements for Gen. Siegel were ou

considered as safe.i. Siegel bore away
825,000 in specie from the Springfield

The muster-roll reported to have been
taken from the enemy gives their force at
23,000,.including regiments from Louis

wounded—the enemy's loss must have
been much greater, as whole regiments
were ent up by , the gallant assaults and

THANIEL LYON. He was born at Ash
&l'd, Ct., in 1820, his mother bei . ,,nr , a de
hcendant of -Col. Knowlton, of Revolu
tionary tame, and his father a plain farm
er. He graduated at West Point, and for
20 years has seen hard service in Indian
wars, in Mexico, Florida,) California, and
Kansas. :His experience in Kansas
changed him from a Democrat to a cor
dial hater of Border Ruffians, and Slavery.
`His services in Missouri were invaluable.
His name will adorn a page of our, coun
try's history. He leaves a family to
mourn with a nation for his early loss.
The Peace Party at the North.
Since the commencement of the war
there has been an organization in this
city, composed of oid Brechinridge Dem
ocratic politicians, who have already sym
pathized with the South in every phase
of the contest. Unwilling to incur the
indignation of the public by an open ex
pression of hostility to the Union, they
have vailed their purposes by
peace and predicting disaster to the na
The theory of the gentlemen is that
the blood which will be shed; the money
spent, and the taxation incurred in the
prosecution of the war will in time devel
op a powerful peace party at the North,
which will make itself felt intbe deliber
ations of Congress when it re-assembles
next December. In the meantime their
cue is to make use of every opportunity
to harass the administration and weaken
'public confidence in the ability of the
North to subdue the rebellious States.
Since the disaster at Bull'Run they have
croaked louder than ever, and have pro
jected a series of meetings; to be held in
the rural districts of New I Tersey, Penn
sylvania, and Southern New York, to in
culcate their views. One meeting has I
already been 'held in Bergen County, New
Jersey, and has been reported in our col
umns. The leaders in this movement are
Gideon J. Tucker, ex-secretary of state,
Thomas Dunn, English, poet and politi
cian, Chauncey Burr, of feeble and di‘s
creditable notoriety, Fernando and Ben.
Wood, and the editors of the Journal of
Commerce, Day Book and .News.
These people, however, must be very
poor' judges of human nature if they sup
pose the North will cement to h peace
until the disaster of Bull Run is avenged.
No doubt, if the war proves a long one,
there will be mal-contents: and disheart
ened people enough to 'form a very re
spectable opposition to the great current
of popular opinion, bnt it is a foregone
conclusion that the war, however gigan
tic, shall be short, and there is practical
ly but one party at the North, and that
is the party of the Union, whose motto .
is "no peace while there is a foe in arms
against the government."— World.
