** Fernando Wood.
This gentleman wh? kas been known at the
South in former years a? a D?mocratie politician
of New York city, ba* ju-tty distinguished bhn
?elf more recently os a man of remarkable bold
ness and moral courage by ? fair and fearless dis
cussion of the present relations between the gav
era menu ?nd people of the two sections of the
cuntry. ' Mr. WOOD has fully and most fearlessly
committed himself against .tho present Federal
Administration, and the further prosecution of
the war. ' On tko 7:h of April, a vast audience
?otembled ?t tho Cooper Institute, New York
Ci.y, to inaugurate formally,' ? political party, j
solely ?nd professedly tor peace; peaoa by rennion,
If the Confederate States will upon, any term*
re-unite witk that people who have wasteland
desolated eur land ; and if not, Then peace anyhow,
upon the basis pf two independent government*.
Mr. WOOD was the principal speaker, ?nd right
ably ?nd powerfully did ho represent his party.*
The speech ba* appeared in lome of onr public
print* ; ?nd our purpose ii now limply to aotioe
lemo of tho more noteworthy pointa mada by ?ir,
' WOOD. Tho speak er wai very honest and vary
fair in stating tho fall strength of the war'partjrj
nt the North. Thia party, ai shown by him, is
composed of various elassos and varions interests,
?il of whom, and ?ll of which, ?re promptod, ex
cepting tho abolitionists proper, by the single mo
tive of money. Contractors, employers, manu
facturers for Uovernmont, bunts and bank officers,
stockholders and stockjobbers, railroads, their
. officers, shareholders ?nd creditors, the debtor
ehuu of th* community-who want to keep money
plenty, and get out be/ore the erasA-the President,
cabinet and ofiEoe-holdirs-?ll these desired the
prolongation of the war,, ?nd not its termination
on any account, or ?ny terms, becaute very large
disbursements of Government 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 min, whieh seemi inevitable in any
event More than twelve hundred thousand men,
not tn the army, Mr. Wo OD alfi rms,, are thus bribed
by the government, and for government, to clam or
for too prosecution of the war. - The President
and cabinet, he further suggests, desire the con
tinuance of tho war in order to wield ? power
which will secure them ia powor 'for ? time-or
for life, if they dare to try it
In addition to this con-up t horde, there ?re the
real Abolitionists who kate the South and ber in
stitutions, ?nd want, the whole people and proper
ty of tko Sooth annihilated.
Notwithstanding this formidable array of num
ber? and of iafluenoe, Mr. WOOD brarely declares
the people of ike Noni, whoso liberties ?nd hap
piness aro at stake np?n. tho issue, ?ra Sweaty timei
$trong?r,U they will ooinbloo to put do wa thio
miserable fuotion which is driving on wildly and
madly to ruin and detpotism.
Mr. Woon frankly'and defiantly affirms'thai
the Lincoln Government is tar beneath that oi
the Confederate States; that it is seeking lo con
vert a free republican Government in tu a military
dvspltism ; thatjt,wuuld not lu-ten to Jerula of
i pacin~iufion, ii sueb were .offoredj thal its main
j objects e?n only be aceompliidied by the euutinit
j 4?ee ?f th? uar; that b< could demon^rate, that,
j fr?ii the military conduct of the wai, the Line?lo
i Cabinri did not intend, had not sought, th'eclwrin.g
, of the ./arr. * ' '
Again, so late as the 3rd of June, Mr. WOOD
has been the principal speaker at another such
meeting in New York City. We prophesied twa
weeks back that nothing would ocme of this con
vention, but after noting^lts proceedings, marked
by energy, directness and enthusiasm, we are in
olined to think differently. "The bold, open,
straight-forward, statesmanlike speech of Mr.
WOOD, on this latter occasion, aW?bave doubtless
road ; it speaks for itself and needs no distended
comment. We are much pleased upon the'whole
with these-speeches of Mr. WOOD. He ?snow the
leader of the party at the North, which aimB at
peace, either With, er witlStUt- reconstruction or
re-union. Tnis language is intelligible. There
is,co mistaking the purpose of this party.
We can "most effectually aid Mr. WOOD, ansi the
men who are working with bim in every one of
the United'States, by abstaining from bitter and
abusive words of him and hip party; and by
speedy erushing and deciding victories over the
Yankee armies now invading and desolating the

Our fortunes are incomparably more promising
and bright tn-day than they were just twelve
months ago. Tl'he prospects of the foe are far less
flattering than tiny were at tbe same 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 niece's as at this moment It is ap
parent to the dullest mind that the enemy is dread
fully afraid of us. They plan, and scheme, and
proclaim what ts to be done, but they do it ut t,
nor attempt it Gen. LEE, after having most Sig
nally defeated HOOKER at Chancellorsville, is now
I sweeping on Northward, or, for all we-know, West
ward. Why may he not go into "Kentucky as well <
as into Pennsylvania ? Already wo hear of hie
brilliant sucpesses ; Winchester has f?llen, and j
Harper's Ferry (so say Northern papers) been
evacuated without a bUw being struck. What
may be the ulterior designs of Gen. LEE, no pri
1 vate citiscn knows, lie is one of those sagacious
military men, who instead of being controlled by
cireurrstan.ee?, avails himself of them to cany
on t bis own designs, which, at the same time in
volve the honor and interests of the Confederacy.
Of one thing we may rest satisfied, if he has with

the heights of Fredericksburg, and has marched

beyond the river, that b? bo* o?rt?,i>rr -not taft

In tbe meantime, our own d>"patches from
Vicksburg, via Jackson and Mobile, meagre and
indefinite though they be, continue to be favora
ble, and derive at least partial confirmation by
intelligence received from the North. All tlie
assault) upon the fortifications at Vicksburg have
been most disastrously unsuccessful ; tbe' Yankee s
bave now sent for spades, and hereafter the work
of reducing Vicksburg will be done more by dig
ging than hy charging. Eut in that hereafter,
Gen. JOE. Jon.*: ot?, Gen. KIRBY Sunn, the bad
water and bad climate of the lower Mi6cL*rippi,
wiil all play important roles.
After the crushing repulse at Charleston, all the
boasts and hopes of the foe teem to have "van
