We publish to-day ike Proclamation of Gov

defence and special service." Bead it, "and mark
attentively the well said words : " For two long

We are bappy to state that Sergeant Ton.
CABWILB has at length arrived at boute. This
y?ung gentleman wa? severely wounded at Chan

mond from the eoajbined effects of the wound and
Erysipelas. Hi.' friends in the army and elsewhere,
will be glad to b?ar that he is now on the high
road to complete recovery.
T Fernando Wood.
This gentleman wh* kos boen known at the
Beatle in former years aaa Democratic politician
of New York city, has ju-tly distinguished hhn
self more recently as a man of remarkable bold
ness ?nd werai courage by a fair and fearless dis
cussion of tba present relations between the gov
ernment! and people of tho two sections of the
cuntry. ' Mr. WOOD has fully oui most feorless'y
committed himself against .tho prtsent Federal
Administration, and tb? further prosecution of J
the war. On the 7:h of April, a vast audience
assembled at tho Cooper Institute, New York
City, to inaugurate formally, a political party,
sjlety ?nd professedly for peace; peuoa by roan IUD,
|f the Confederate Staten will upon, any terms
ro-uaito witk that people who have wasteland
dosolated eur land; and if not, then peace anyhow,
upon thc basis of two Independent governments.
Mr. Woo? was tho principal speaker, and right
ably and powerfully did ho -represent his part}.
The speeeh boa appeared in some of our publie
prints ; and our purpose is now simply to notice
seme of tho more noteworthy points made by Mr.
WOOD. The speaker was very honest and very
fair in stating tbs full strength of tbe warparty
at the North. Tibia party, ai shown by him, is
Composed of various classes and various interests,
?Il of whom, ?nd all of which, are prompted, ex
cepting the abolitionists proper, by the single mo
tive of moory. Contractors, employers, manu
facturers for Government, banks and bank officers,
stockholders and stockjobbers, railroads, their
officers, shareholders and creditors, the debtor
?lass of the community-who want to keep money
plenty, ano* get out before the crasA-the President,
cabinet and office-holders-all these desired the
prolongation of the wur, and not its termination
on any account, or any terms, Ucaute very Urge
disbursements of Oovernment credit would enable
them to make large gains; whereas a termination
of the war would either curtail their profits, for
feit their occupations, or involve them in the com
mon financial ruin, which seems inevitable in any
ovent More than twelve hundred thousand men,
not tn the army, Mr. WOOD affirms, are thus bribed
by the government:, and for government, to clamor
for tue prosecution of tho war. Tho President
and cabinet, be further suggests, desire the con
tinuance of the war in order to wield a power
whieh will secure them in powor for a time-or
for life, if they dare to try it.
In addition to this corrupt horde, there are tho
real Abolitionists who hate the South and ber in
stitutions, and waut.the wholo people ?nd proper
ty of tke South annihilated.
Notwithstanding this formidable array of num
bers and of influence, Mr. WOOD bravely declares
tke people of the North, whose liberties and hap
piness Ut ?t stake upon the ii sue, aro ticenty times
?tranger if they will combino to pat down* this
miserable faction which is driving on wildly ?nd
madly to ruin and despotism.
Mr. WOOD (rankly* and defiantly affi ms thxt
tho Lincoln Government is lar beneath that ol
the Confederate Stales; thal it is seeking lo con
vert a free republican Government intu a military
despotism; that ji" would not listen to terms o
j puCi?eation if such were offered; that its maio
objects e^n only be acooinpliihed by the evutimi
.tore ?/ (Aa tear; that h< could demon? trate, that,
froiu the military conduct of the wat, the Lincoln
Cabinet did not intend, had not sought, the during
of the war.
Again, so late as the 3rd of June, Mr. WOOD
has boen the principal speaker at another such
meeting in New Tork City. We prophesied two
weeks back that nothing would come of this con
vention, but after noting^ its proceedings, marked
by energy, directness and enthusiasm, we are in
clined to think differently. The bold, open,
straight-forward, statesmanlike speech of Mr.
WOOD, on this latter occasion, aU-bave doubtlos
road; it speaks for itself and needs no distended
comment. We are much pleased upon the Whole
with these speeches of Mr. WOOD, lie is now the
leader of the party at the North, which aims at
peace, either with, er loifA?fff reconstruction or
re-union. Tnis language is intelligible. Thero
is no mistaking the purpose of this party.
We can most effectually aid Mr. WOOD, and th?
men who are working with him in every one of
the United States, by abstaining from bitter and
abusive words of him and hie* party; and by
speedy cruthing and deciding victories over the
Yankee armies now invadimf and desolating thc
land. Effort-action-result !
Should we be Discouraged ?
Our fortunes are incomparably more promising
and bright to-day than they wcro just twelve
mouths ago. The prospects of the foe are far less
flattering than they wero at tho sam* period.
Our army never was so numerous-so well
equipped-so well disciplined-so well clothed
and fed-so well commanded-so healthful and so
confident of success ns at this moment, lt is ap
parent to tho dullest mind that the enemy is dread
fully afmid of us. They plan, and scheme, and
proclaim what ii to bo done, but they du it ut t,
nor attempt it. Gen. LEE, after baring most
nally defoated HOOKER at Chancellorsville, is now
sweeping OB Northward, or, for all we-koow, West
ward. Why may he not go into Kentucky as well
as into Pcnnnylvanin ? Already wo beor of his
brilliaut successes ; Winchester bas fallen, and
Harper's Ferry (so say Northern papers) been
evacuated without a blew being strurk. What
may be tho ulterior designs of Gen. LEE, no pri
vate citizen kuows. ile is one of those sagacious
military men, who iustead of being controlled by
circumstances, avails himself of them to carry
out his own designs, which, at the samo time in
volve the honor and interests of the Confederacy.
Of one thing we may rest satisfied, if hehaa with
drawn tho larger portion of his large army from
tho heights of Frederic ksburg, and has murcbed
them te some post hjgbor up the river, or even
beyond the river, that be bu? oert?inty not left
Richmond unguardod against any and every con
tingency; and if he proposes to penetrate the
enemy's country, disposing of any opposition that
he may et.oounter from Gen. HOOKER or any other
Yankee General on the way, that it is because be
is a brave ard skillful man, ?nd thinks that the
time for offensive operations, and perhaps for in
vasion, has arrived, and, relying on the God of
battles, means to venturo oe them, nome what
In the meantime, our own despatches ?You;
Vicksburg, via Jackson and Mobile, meagre and
indefinite though they be, continu? to bo favora

intelligence received from the North. All the
assault* upon the fortifications &t Vicksburg have
been most disastrously unsuccessful; thc Yankees
bare now sent for spades, and hereafter the work
of reducing Vicksburg will be done more by dig
