The " followine rineinc- lyric, written by Al
fred B. Street, of Albany, a poet of whom ll.e
State 'tnd Nation has just i casein to be 'proud,
was read at the great Loyal League Meeting,"
recently held in New York City.
Our Union, the gift of our faihersl
In wrath roars the tempest abovul
The darker ond nearer our danger,
The warmer and closer our lnr.
Though bleeditifr, it never ctiii peri-h;
It bends, but not sinks to t lie bUdt;
Foes rush on in fury to rend ill
But we will be true lo tlto lust
Our Union, orduined by Jehovuh ,
Man sets not the But aside!
As well cleave the welkin asunder,
As the One mighty system divide
The grand Mississippi souii'lsner,
From pine down to palm, the dfcrcej
The spindle, the corn, and the cotum,
Oi, 0!un shout, Union, to theel
Our Uuion.'the lightning of battle
First kindle the flume of its shrine!
The blood aud the teurs of our people
Have made it forever divine.
Iu buiile we then will deTuud il!
Will fight till the triumph is wonl
Till luebiute form the realm ofihe Union
As the sky forms the realm of the sun.

The Treatment of Disloyalty.
BY HORACE GREELEY.
The political fabrick known to onrneo
pie and the world as the United Slates of
North America, is involved in a desperate
struggle for existence. As-aiud from
within by a vast und formidable rebellion
the ripe fruit cf thirty years of conspiracy
and preparation, it is more insidiously war
red upon by the devotees of Caste, oWriv
ilege, of Feudalism in the Old World, w ho
truly discern in its overthrow their own
triumph aud security. For bull a centry,
the fitfully iuci easing Liberal purty of Eu
rope bus looked ucross the Atimuiu to ( us
couniry with lively interest and itbsieud
ily growing satisfaction. It bus more aud
more been emboldened to say to its adver
saries, "You assert that a self-goveruiug
community, untaxed for ihe.gupport of Roy
alty, Prelacy, Aristocracy, and a great
Standing Army, is a chimera. Look to
America, and see there in actual, pieseut,
palpable, flourishing existence, that which
you prououuee impossible. Aud, if prao
ticable therewby not bercf Are the A
m erica us uioie intelligent, moie vinuous,
moto capable than we? Why is eelf gov
ernment feasible in tba North Aniencau
States, vet Dot iu GeraianT, France, Great
JJrltaiD, orlUlT'' '
The only answef that Aristocracy conld
moke to this qnestion implied that our pios
ptTiiy and order were Imky and transitory
aeciilcnts, fnvored by our possession of uti
enormous area of fertile pat nnocnpfid soil
and the consequent abaoipt ion into, the
woik of subduing and reclaiming tho wil
derness of (he restless, reckless, disorderly,
untamable elements of our population.
"Only wait a littlo, till g'cat cities shull
have arisen, arid manufactures been estub.
lisltid, and the forest ehnll have receded,
and wealih been omossed, Hnd poverty and
profligacy developed their natural nutntro
nisin to thrift imi abundance, an I then you
will see that this beautiful apparition of a
stable and tranquil Democracy will prove
a chimera which the first rough touch will
dissolve a fog wreath which the first
strong gale will blow nway."
But an illusion, a phantom, which stand s
fiim for eighty years, resisting rur!e shocks
from without und fierce assaults from with
in, takes at least tho semblance of real
ity becomes to most iutcuts a substance
und a fact. So many vaticinations -of ap
proaching anarchy und convulsion, of dis
ruption and explosion, hud been falsified by
the event, that the prophets were losing
credit even with their habitual devotees,
while the multitude were fust learning to
receive their doleful oliguric with, a horso
luugh of deiifion. So many of their pre
dictions that this country was just on the
point of disruption and civil war had prov
ed fuliucious, that u, fresh cry of 'Wolf,
from the 8unie quarter excited no emotion
Cut those of deris ve contempt And when
at lust it became unquestionable that the

Jackson in his collision wilii Uiilliuiin,

to compure two paiulled facts, or nunlyzc
his own conceptions. If he possesses the
reasoning fuuulij at all, U is in so imperfect
and rudimentary a lorm that an averuge

But the prevalence, the intensity, the
activity, of Northern sympathy with Sou Ii
eni treason, though deplorable, neverthe
less ore fuels. How should they lie dealt
with by the Government of the Union?
Admit all the prcoii-e-i that the advo
cates of strong meusures insist on that uo
citizen has a right to rebel, nor to syinpa
thize with Iliibels every ru m's imperative
duty si to sustain the Federal Govern
ment in the war so ' wantonly, wictteaiy
forced upon it by slave'holding tieusou; yet
(be fact remains that a great m.tuy, even in
the Free States, do ardeutly sympathize
with the Southern Rebellion, as they ul
ways have syruputh zed, always will sym
pathize, with any eQ'ort which contemplates
the aggrandizement of Slavery, the degra
dation of "negroes: What'would you have
done with them?
Say thut they are unfaithful to the most
imperative and sacred obligutious have
you any process for making them otherwise?
They are too many for punishment, too
strong to be intimated by making examples
cf the most malignant or the most couspic
unus. You meet them daily among your
acquaintances and neighbors, and know
tbut thir hearts are with the Hjbels thut
the more frank and impulsive uuiong iheui
openly display their exultation when the
t rait oi s ore victorious, while their more
crafty and secretive compatriots chuckle
quietly over a Bull Kun or Games'
Mill disaster, and hope thut one or two
more such will compel the Government lo
buy a peace of the traitors by the most
bumiliutiiig concessions, whereof Disunion
shall be but the cutei'ingweijge: What
would you have done with ilium -
Toanest ulidaeik lo punish the worst
of Ih in is to afford thim ull the opportuni
ty they covet to o ipose und eiiibunass ihe
Goverumuut wiihout appearing directly,
purposely, to assist tho rebels. No uuu
likes lo oa to himself or proclaim tu ui
ne'gbbora tbat he is acuug ihepaaofu
traitor his couseieuee aud bis pride alike
recoil from ibe revohiug exhibition. But
give them a cbauce to do the work of trai
tors in the gulie of devotion to 'Fi ee Speech
or hostility to Arbitrary Arrests, aud there
are thousands who will eagerly engage
iu it where hundreds will reluclaully aud
timidly couseul to appear as undisguised
partuaus of red handed treason. 1 it
ie or well io give them the cover for tbeir
disloyally tbey o readily adopt, so effective
Ij employ? ,
My own earnest conviction iaji Ko
leave evert one free to proclaim his sym
pathy with the Rebellion np to the point
of overt nnd indictable treason. Lnt every
one spenk or write ns to him shull seem
good tip to the point which shall bring him
into direct nnd imiiishnblo collision with
the laws of the land. If he resists a draft,
if ho screens deserters, or does nny other
net that the law will take b jld of, let him
be dealt with os the law prescribes; hut
let no man be arrested who is
not to bo Indicated, and no
disloyal oct or ntteranco that keep within
the law be punished otherwise than with
public reprobation and loathing. So shull
Northern disloyalty be generally restricted
to mere words, which break no bones to
windy demonstrations, which the first
crushing Union victory will arrest. Had
the Union armi been steadily victorious,
tho Copperhead would have been to this
dny an unknown species of politician; and
the capture of Vieksburg to-morrow would
do more tostriOo Northern disloyalty than
tho suppression of a thousand Copperhead
journals, tho deportation of a hundred Vol-
Let Freedom he trusted by her cham
pions She deserves and will requite their
confidence. No force of demonstration
will, indeed, nvike true men of ingroio
traitors; but tho disease which afflicts the
body politic were better brought out than
driven in. A windy, -blatant apostle of
of sedition Is far less dangerous than a
silent, secretive conspirator who mines iu
darkness, and stubs with a gloved nnd
steakhy hand. Let sympnbty with Trea
son bo encouraged by impunity to unmask
and display itself, that il may the sooner
excite the general abhorrence it so richly
merits. Let tho elected chiefs of tho Narion
trust iho Nation to evince a duo regnrd for
its own existence, its own safety. So shall

The dijuth t,f Thomas JefTeison Jackson,
which took phice recently, is made the sub
ject of a lengthy nnd somewhat singular
article in a Into nuinber'of tho New York
Independent. We had supposed that a man
might be regarded as a tolerably fair spe
cimen of a sinner, when, by the deeds done
in the body, he is guilty Of treason miuddr
arson, aud the balance "of the crimes in the
c.-iiOiiflur when be una men us . lie tiuvu
b-e i gu liy f plunging a groat nuiiou iirti
ail the hoirors of a fratricidal war, with ull
ibe mi-ery, grief, ruin and sorrow lhat fol
low in its wuke; but if wo believe with the
Independent, a man cun do all this while
culiivutiug the highest christian graces, in
fact, he can do what and all ho may lo sub
vert a liberal and benign government in or
der that a blitveholding end slave breeding
urisiocrncy may be erected upon its ruins,
and still be serving God in-au emiucnt do-
gree. The Independent says:
'Henceforth we know him no more after
the flesh. He is no longer a foe. We
think of him now us a noblu minded gem lu
men, a rare uiid eruii,e:it christian For
years he has been uu uctive member of the
Presliyieriau Church, of which he was' a
ruling elder. Ho never, in nil the occupa
tions of the camp, or temptntiou of urn
oaisrns. lost the fervor of his piety, or re-
mined his christian duties."
Tho e is many a simple minded mother
iu tfie North who refuses to be comforted
becasiso her children aro not, having been
slain iu battle by this sumo "rare aud emi
nent christian," who will fail to see, thro'
her bliudiug to rs, this rami's character in
the glowing light iu which the eralic pen
ot Mr Beecheh has eloihed his mcuioiy.
Thi-se simple souls will fail to see why they
should be bereft of their darling boys, aud
their hearts filled with unquenchable sor
row'for tho uutimely dead, for the suke of
fighting against a cause that bas enlisted
the heartiest approval and approbation of
such devou; christians as Stonewall Jack
son, Jeff. Davis, aud Leouidas Polk.

"FACIO." The Object of the War Unchanged.
All are nerepd that the object of the
war, with the rebels, Is to establish a Slave)
Confodnraey. This proposition none wil
controvert ; It Is universally udmitted.
But till are not "greed as to the object
of the war as prosecuted by the Administtit
lion. President Lincoln has asserted again
and again that the purpose of the war is to
crush out the rebellion and restore the au
thority and supremacy of the Federal Un
ion j nnd so say all loyal mon wiihout ic
pefct trrtucir old or preseut party associa

changed the object of the war altogether
They assert possitively that the abolition
ol hegro slavery is the primary olject of
the war, while the restoration of the Union
is a secondnry matter. Indeed, some of t hn
intemperate opponents of t he administration
as ert that it is not seeking uow to restore

Administration tins chnnged tho ohj.-ct of

Suppose that the property of rebels lias
beeu confiscated by law ; that the Admin
istration is enlisting negro soldiers ; that
the authoriiy of rebel masters over slaves
is not recognized; and 'that Kentucky, by
u sweeping act of her Legislature, has di
fraiichised her whole brood of truitors ;
does all this prove that the object of the
war inis been changed by the Administra
tion? Not ut all. There has been a change
in the policy ft change of the menus used
by the Aduiiuisiraiiou, in some respects, to
coerco the rebels. Tbo iusiruiueiiUliiies
huve beeu iucreustd, but the result- to be
attained remains most assuredly the same.
Who ever thought that u eiange of mtans
was equivalent to a change o(. the end to

The policy, advocated by the Conserva
tives, or, morss properly, tho Destructives,
was ti.od for i lie first eighteen months of
tho wur with poor success, and to the great
discouragement of the Nation. Gloom set

where s;iv that u war wagul iu this mis
eratilu manner, would soon result in the
establishment of the Iiiehmond dynasty,
and thai a clique of Conservative political
gamblers in Kentueky, Maryland, ond per
haps Delaware and Missouri, were only
awaiting the hour of iho nation's exhaust
ion, by the suctiuu of the Conservative
Vampire, to sell and barter their States
also to JttT. D tvis j just us their coadjuiors,
Henry Tot ten and Barrow, sold out tho
S'-ulo of Teuuessce. Tho cry of the people
went up hko ihuudcr for the adoption of
severer war measures, and a more vigor
ous ptosecuiiuu of the war. Tho conser
vative, eoneilulory, compromising . war
policy lias beeu thoroughly irietl, and found
uot ouly worthless, but positively perni
cious. Column sense and expeiicucc taught
us lhat loyal men must be us' earnest, as
vigoious, us uuspuiiug in the use of means,
to support the Government, us the lebels
were to be destroy it. A more vigorous
policy was gradually odop'ei, and from
that hour tho Union causo has flourished,
prospered und advanced.
But the oi jet of the war is precisely
wtiut it was when Mi. Lincoln t-alh-d fur
75 000 men in iho spring of 1881, for
wiiicii he wits denounced in the biueivsi
terms by tho-e Conseivativo organs ihe
Louisville Democrat and Journal ; especially
the latter. Suppose that Cong' ess hud
pus.-ed a confiscation act ; is uot the
penulty of treasou iu ullcoumriis duih.and
is It worse to take property than life ?
Sunoose the Government has freed the
slaves of the rebels, and even invited them
to flv to iu lines and enlist :-is uot that
the means of weakeuing the rebels, und
uttaing the originial object of the war?
Suimose Mr. Lincoln has emii'ed negro
soldiers to defeud the Uu!on against rebels;
did not Gen. Jackson enlist negro soldiers
to defend the Uuion against tmeigu invti
eiou ? Suppose Governor Johnson has
levied comparatively light assessments upou
leadinir. wealthy rebels, for the benefit of
the poor ; is it not j tst that a few hundred
families reduced lo starvation, by tho wick
eduess of rich rebels, should receive a pitt
ance, by laying a tax on their destroyers ?
Has this assessment, this most jusi, righte
ous, aud benevolent dood of humauity,
changed tho object of thas, war ? Suppose
spies, aud malignal traitors have beeu seut
beyond our lines, instead of being shot or
bung; docs this change Ihe object of the
wa, or is it the duty of the Government to
harbor, and shield a doceiiful hordo who
would stub it 'o the heart ? None of ull
these measuies have iu the least, changed
