for an imposibility.
McClellan_ offer 3 to guarantee State
rights to the rebel States if they will rte

But the rebel . States have less rights
under Jeff' Davis than they ever had with
us, and so oligarchs would have mo're
power than they ask for or ever had.
Thus McClellan ;offers; a negotiatOn

We have just seen a letter from a gal
lant, alid neeomplished officer serving
with' Sheridan: He writes that on are
cent reConnoisanee, when our forces came
in sight of the enemy, the Rebels sent up
cheer after cheer for McClellan, which
our boyi answered with thundering shouts
for Lincoln. Ile adds that the cheering
of the Rebels for the Chicago nomination,
preducqd a very marked effect upon our
men, and strengthened their opposition
to the candidate that elicits such support.
re,3'The', Democrats, acting through
George j3.3l'Clellan and Fitz John Porter,
grantecPthe rebels atgAntietam an armis
tice for twenty four hours. That armis
tice gave the rebels time to retreat; to or
ganize• their beaten forces, and to select
new points of offence and defence; it saved
Lee's ariny from capture or annihilation,
protracd the war, cost the lives of one
hrindredi thousand loyal men, doubled
the national debt, and intensified the
strife. The democrats now demand a new
armistice, under the lead of 3PClellan.--

The Last Speech of Douglas.
The following is the-lsst speech °tate
lamented S:tEPHEN A. - i.6OIIGLAS ever
made—in Chicago, a few days previous
to his death.. We commend its manly
spirit and'its noble patriotism to all men
at the present time:
Ma. CHAIRMAN—I thank you for the'
kind terms with which •yOu have_been
pleased to welcome rue; I thank th.e coin
mittee and ,I thank the citizens of Chica
go for this grand and imposing receptitin.l
But I beg you to believe that I do not do
you the injustice to consider this ovation
a personal one, but rather that I rejoice
in the knowledge that it istn expression
of your devotion to the Constitution and
the laws of our copritry. I will not con
ceal my gratification at the incontroverti
-hie testimony which this ',vast audience,
presents, that whatever differences ofl
opinion may have heretofore divided US,
the conviction now exists in your mind
that in danger my loyalty to my country i
may be relied upon. That danger is im-
tninent none. can conceal from -thcreselves,
no matter how Much they inay desire to
avert the evil; but if war must be = if the
bayonet must crush social Order and lib
erty, then; before God, .I feel my con
science clear. I have struggled as long
as there was hope, and even' after hope
had almost disappeared, fora peaceful so
lution of the trouble. 1 have not. only
tendered full satisfaction and ample jus.
tire, but plosrered cow - illation, even to the
extent .of magnanimity and generosity.
Tice mina-it which we receine is war on
lour Government, the marckof armies on
;one capital, .the obstruction Of our trade,
!the issue - of letters of marque authorizing
ipirates to prey upon our commercein
short, a concerted movement to blot out
the United Slates from the map of the
world. The simple questiOn is whether
we are io maintain the Government, or
allow it to be stricken out of existence by
those who nO longer acknoWledife its au
thority, and Seek only to destroy it. - What
excuse can the disunionist give for break
ing up the best Government', the sun ever
1 shed its light upon? They are dissatis
fied with the, result of the last Presiden
t tial election.: Were : ' they never beaten
I before ? ire we to tolerate the idea that ,
the defeated party is to resort to the.
sword? I u:nderstand 'it to be a funda-
I mental principle that the voice of the.
people must command obedience.pagy
assume that :in the election of a party
!candidate their rights arc not safe What
evidence liar,e we of it • Lady any man

what' one act has been committed which
they can complain of ? , & far ai the
rights of the South are concerned—the
rights of slqeholders—no act has teen
c.onzmitted of whick they can complain.
There has never been -the day since the ,
hour of Washington's inauguration down 1
to this moment, when •the rights of the 1
South have stood firmer under' the laws
of the land. ; There never was a time
when they had not quite as ; good cause
for disunion as now. What specific griev
ance can they assign from the day of
Washington to this, moment? If they
refer to the :territorial question, it is an
extraordinary. fact that there is 'now no
act on_ our statute books limiting slavery
in any manner', If to the enforcement
of th - claws, the only Complaint is that too'
much has been done, that we have been
too eager to enforce tile fugitive slave law.
Then, I ask, What excuse has the South
for the scheme which they have concoct
ed to 'wind up the Union ? The slavery
question is a :mere excuse. The election
of Lincoln.if but a pretext. The present
i secession movement' , is the result of in
enormous conspiracy, which was matured
a year ago. Thia.lconspiracy was 'framed
by the leaders of thesecession movements
twelve months ago, and they have used
every meads to urge it on. They have
caused' a man to be elected, by a sectional ,
vote, to demonstrate that the Union *as
divided; and when the - history of the
country, front the time of the Lecompton
Constitution to the date of Lincoln's eke
lion, is written, it will appear, that a 1
scheme was maturing meantime which
was for no -end except to break it up, and
they used the slavery question as a means.
They desired to create a purely sectional
vote, to demonstrate that the two sections
could not livlo together: The disunion
card dictated that the South' was to carry
its own election, and that the North was
to elect Lincoln. Then a'united South
was to assails divided North, and gain
an easy victory: This scheme was defeat,
ed by the overthrow of the dis r union can
didates in KMitucky, Tennessee and Vir-
Still the grand conspiracy existed, and
the disunion movements was the result of
it. But I have no time to enter into de
tails. Armies are raised, and war has
been levied. There are but two sides to the
question, and every man must be on the
side of the Uaited , States or against it.—
There can be none but patriots or traitors.
Thank .God, Illinois is not to be doubted
on this question. They conspired to pro
duce a civil war,among Republicans and
Democrats, expecting to step in and ac
complish an easy victory. -The sclieme
will involve zivil war and bloodshed in
the. United States, and the calamity is
only to be avuted by united action.
I repeat that, so long as, there was a
possibility of settling, the troubles peace
fully, every sacrifice was made and pro
posed, and now, when the question is,to
be transferred, from the cotton States to
the corn.fields l of Illinois,,l. say, the far
ther off the better. War is a sad thing,
but civil war must now be recognized as
existing in th'e United States. We can
no longer close our eyes to the solemn
fact. in this exigeecy the Government
be maintained, and the nzare-mt
iendous and overwhelming are our pre ,
partitions, the shorter will be the st •uggie.
But, my countrymen, we must remember
that certain restrictions are to beaserved.
We must not forget that we are Cbiist
itins, and that war must be waged in a
Christian spirit—not against the rights
of a people—nbt against the rights of
women and children. Say 'that you --will
sanction no• war on rights, and say that
never will you lay down your arms until
those which you claim as your own are
recognized. We were born under the
Constitution of the United States, and its
provisions are our birthright. Then be
pitepared to enforce the inalienable rights
which it confers. c
We have peculiar reasons thy we cau
-1 net ?ecognize the right to secede. and
bleak up the_Union. C Once recognize it
land you not only destroy the Government,
ibUt annihilate order, and inaugnrate
anarchy such as disgraced the history of
I t h e worst days of the French revolution,
My friends, you have a solemn duty to
perfOrtn. Use all your power to maintain
the Constitution and the Government
which our fathers gave Us. The greater
the unanimity, the less the loss of life and
property,aad the sooner the.establishment
of peace.. Lam aware that we have some
prejudice to encounter, but that does not
surprise me. It is but a few short months
since we passed a stormy election, and it
takes some little time to drive out the'
party contentions and substitute patriot.
'sin ; and yet he who would not sacrifice
political difference does not deserve the!
support of his country. . ' 1
How then are we to present a united;
front ? Cease to discuss, cease to crimi-1
nate and recriminate.. indulge 'in no
taunts as to who caused the troubles, but
unite manfully now, and when the
waves over every inch of the country ar
gue the point of authorship. When we
shall have a government for our children
to live under, it will be time enough to
discuss its difficulties, but now let him be
marked an untrue patriot who distrusts
our cause and sows dissention I have
said more 'than I intended.' It is a sad
task, but sad as it is, bloody as it will be,
I believd iu the justice of our cause, and
earnestly, hope to see every patriot rally
around the flag of his country in the Hour
I ofits peril. I renew to you my grateful
acknowledgement for the imposing recep
tion you have given me. I acknowledge
it on behalf of the Government and the
flag of our country. You haie demon
strated that you prefer to lay aside party,
feelings, and unite to a man in the coun- ‘
chit of the nation, in the field, and every-,
where that men can make themselves,
useful and patriotic. Illinois occupies a,
proud position before the nation, and let
her sous unite in the determined resolve'
never to permit this Government to bed
Woke Up the Wrong Customer.
J. 11. Woodward, a young man resident
of Indiana, and at one time Adjutant of
an Indiana mein:lent was called out at a
recent peace meeting, and responded as
Gentlemen r—The great cry that I
have heard here to•dny has been peace,
peace. I tell you that there is no roan
in the nation who desires peace more than
I do—a permaneut,lastingpeaae. [Cheers]
And, gentlemen, I will tell you how we
will get it. Fight this war out. Take
every negro in the rebel States, and ex
terminate every d—d rebel, no matter
where you End him. [Hisses.] Gentle
men, you need not try to hiss me down,
for I am an old soldier, and I have faced
almost as mean a looking crowd as is now
before me. I mean the thieves and bush
whackers of Tennessee. I know I was
called upon to make a speech out of de
rision, and I intend to tell you what I
think of you.
When God said Ile would save Sodom
if ten righteous men could be found there,
have no doubt , he would have done it,
and, to-day if you all stood upon the brink
of hell, and he were to say he would save
you if oce loyal man could be found
amongst you, I have not ;the least doubt
but there would be a great many strange
faces in hell for supper.
Gentlemen, when you wish to hear from
me again, vou have only to call upon me.
I am always at home.
"110BsoN's CrtoicE,"—This is a very
common expression, implying "that one
has no choice, or that he must 'take this
this or none.'" The origin of the ex
pression will interest our readers. Tobi
as Hobson kept the first livery stable in
England, near -Cambridge University.
He had forty horses kept for hire, some
of -them very fine, but he made it an in
variable rule that every successive cus
tomer should take the horse standing
nearest the door or none. He so arranged
the animals that each horse should come
in order for a share of the work.
