for the purpose of rinsing n fund for thc Blue
Atidgct ,\) III pu ny of Voluutcors, to be expended
Ifft any way (hut tuny bo necessary for their
comfort or nssistttnec. As I know that no
rt?e takes a deeper interest in their welfare
than myself, 1 beg leave to express some of
rivy thoughts on tim subject, boping that they
may nut bo uninteresting to many of thc rcud
'er? of your excellent paper :
Wo ure all conversant with thc causes from
which our present difficulties have arisen. In
the first placo, I wrist say that I think our
Statesmen havo don? their whole duty thus
far. First, in trying to insure our rights in
thc Union ; secondly, in.withdrawing from a
Union in which this could no longer bc done j
rlhiidly, in sustuiiiiiMu^'^Vreo of arms the
dwight of sci I-gov tvo m cfit' " flint has been denied
by those who bad nut tho right of denial.
flJho Constitution of thc United States was
? .gVnwn up by our forefathers after u long and
.bloody snuggle for Independence, with the
trope that their posterity might dwell under
i? protective and defensivo laws in pence and1
'^?osjierit^ through niniiy'successir? ngos. Hut
at?s for the degeneracy of mun !-it lins only
lasted a little more than four score years, when
it is crushed to atoms by tlioso who should
have been its strongest pillars of support lt
is now numbered With tilings that have passed
away, to be kept in memory only in thc silent
records ol' history. Tho party spirit at thc
* North hud gained such ascendancy, und they
bad so long and so wallton ly rolled the iron
yrpoel of oppression over us, that they had at
hat como io thc determination to crush our
v?j^y existence, beneath the magnitude of its
?Itiighty sway. Thc question with us now is,
can it bo done? I, for one. nm roa dy to an
swer thal it cannot (unless-it has bo.cn prede
termined hy Omnipotent power), while we
qnn boast of so many patriotic hearts that are
?ling to leave nil that is dear to them and
-Mwot thc ouctny on the. threshold of his own
?arar, and drive him back from our soil as soon
i Jt?fi. ho degrueh'S it willi bi? devastating filet
'^sfo.ps. The pa.'I history ol' nations show how
lui^d it is for a people tobe conquered who
nfl lighting for their liberties on their own
spil. Addresses to Southern gentlemen on
tliis subject havo long been exhausted by able
States. The motto for thom to adopt now is.
?*jjjnpt uctiou--lo which call they have thus
tnrinobly responded.
. Jt now beg leave to neldre.xa n few words to
Southern Ladies. Tho present is a period in
ourp.iiation's history when we; may mukc our
'phy/js useful to our country in many ways. 1
cushat in many pinces (hey have not taken
.tyntunterest in our country's wcllhrc thal they
.howd,. but L feel assured that it is only for
RtjS.of duo consideration, and not from a
N?'wt of true patriotism. Our near and dear
^jop?is arc called to defend our country's dour
CSt;rights, and to establish tho character of
our young Republic at homo, and to give it a
finnie unsullied in thc eyes of foreign nations;
end it is on tho present movements of our
statesmen and seddicrs that our futuro destiny
depends. Then let each mother and sister
rejjnqui.sh for a while thc ties that bind them
raftloscly to us, bid them go forth to fight thc
J^lcs of our country, giving them words of
j??puragomont Ijiat will insure our victory,
ral with woman's smiles of approbation ?ttd
/p?ds of encouragement, man can bid defiance
Sj obstacles that would otherwise seem insur
MOpntablo. Remember too, that tho true
glupctor of woman ia never so fully realized
^*hcn adversity throws its dark -muutie over

_:?QMTjgM?
The Design td Destroy tho South, ns Ad
mittfcd ny our Present Encintes nearly
Three Years Ago.
lt is sometimes \vell to reproduce thc ad
missions ot' our encunes. The fellowing arti
cle was copied into this paper on thc Ot!. No
vember, lSf>S, .from thc New York Jlmt/tl.
lt tells us what Was the programme of AY.
ll. Seward then, lt will bc seen, at this day,
how completely it. has been curried out by this
arch traitor, who is one of the ebie!' instru
ments in ibo destruction ot thc lato Confed
eracy. According to thc JIcrul<tt speaking
I moro that) two years ugo, wc sec what was his
deliberate design. Wo itulicise certain pas
sages' lor thc special benefit of such us may
bo lukewarm in tho Southern States. We
note herc the delib?rate admissions and thc
bold avowals of un enemy j und with this
j aloUO wc muy answer those miserable whining
I complaints of Unionists, North und South,
who reproach the Southern people with pre
cipitutiou. Had they waited three months
longer, thc iron collar would have bceu about
thc throats of every Southern State and peo
ple, or thc bulcher at their doors.-Mcnutt/.
[From thc New York Herald.]
Thc political issue which is to bc submitted
I to the people of this State to-morrow has
! been boldly und brutally stilted by William
j H. Seward to be. " whether the cotton and
rice bolds of South Carolina r.nd thc sugar
plantations of Lousia na shall ultimately be
j tdbd by free lalor, and Chariest on and New
j Orleans become marts for legitimate mer
j chnndi/o alone, or whether the rye and wheat
\ fields of Massachusetts and New York shall
j be ng1*v* surrendered by their farmers to slave
culture und to thc production of slaves, and
j Boston and New York become once more
markets for trude in the bodies ; nd seuls ol
men."
. lt was for the purpose of springing thu
iD8.1110 issue upon thc pcoplo of New York
; that Thurlow Weed refused, ut Syracuse,?h
' take a teat in the back carot' thc eppositioi
, train, and that thc true features ol thc can
? vuss in favor of Morgun fur Oovernor wert
J kept buck until the speech of Seward, ut Ko
j chester, a few days since. Thc issue is nit
fully stated in the quotation WO lui VC gi Vc I
j above, so as to make tt appear that a great
' cbutCSt is going on between the social iusti
lotions of thc North and the South, in wliicl
one must eventually triumph, to thc utter de
j Btruclion of thc other. This assumption, si
I fur ns regards any effort on tho part of tin
! South to take possession of thc rye and whea
J bolds of New England and ibis State, and o
; tho markets of D?ston and New York, am
, lill theta with slaves, is pure nonsense am
! icily. No man knows this better lhan Wm
; ll. Sewaid. No mun knows latter than In
that the most active scene of lifo and ex pa n
sion in this country is in thc Northern Statis
j lb-sides thc evidences which ure evrrywher
! exhibited in thc North ol material prosperity
I und increase of population und social powet
it is thc North that barbers thc aggressiv
spirit which characterizes the country. I
was the. North that was ready to light li)
Aroostook and the Northeastern boundary
that endeavored to stir up the Canadian re
hellion and sted those provinces from th
British crown; that has extended its gras
lover I h rec-lott Iths of thc productive h.nd c
j thc '.I ci literies ; that run six lighting mc
into Kansas to one from thc South ; that sen
I 'tis l.li Thayc.s into Virginia to drive th
niggers southward j and it is thc Nott
winch now wishes to get up this ra/.?ia on th
South, and Wm. II. Seward who wishes I
lead it.
Thc true issue, then, which he presentst
tho voters of New York, and in favor i
which every vote cist to morrow foi- Molga
will bc claimed, is involved, in the fust pat
of his proposition, Will New York pr<
claim that " the cotton and rico fields i
South Carolina and the sugar plantations t
Louisiana shall bc tilled by tree labor alono?
This is thc issue, ns Mr. Seward puts it j an
it carries a brutal ami bloody moaning. ]
involves a'total destruction of all Ox is tin
things in thc Southern States. Thc bom
of society must bc swept uwny. .An inlet ic
and brutal race must bc admitted to sooii
ned political equality with the superior rac
or it must be driven out. Thc cotton, tobm
i co, sugar and rice, that now form so large
I portion m our commercial e xchanges, mu
j cease to bc produced. The scenes that ha\
marked thc sume policy in llayti, dan.aie
and many portions of Spanish Amelie
must bc reproduced hi thc southern port io.
of this Union. Tho fields must be tunic
into barren wastes, or allowed to be. overru
by'tho forest; the springs of commerce ebie
up, industry everywhere destroyed, od neat it
neglected, churches and schools allowed
tall into decay, tho rite of marriage and tl
observanco of family t'es abandoned, and
savage barbarism installed wlicre peace, o
der and social progress now rule.
This is no imaginary picture. Its renlil
muy bc scon in everyone of the intertropic
Countries of America where thc inferior ra?
bas been released from the control ami gu
dance of tho superior. Tho islands of tl
West Indies und thc shores of Mexico ai
tho Spanish ?Main present a reality far mo
terrible than the picture wc have drawn.
An occasional island, like Barbadoes, crowd,
with negroes to siurvnlhm point, who ho
each other in check under white organizatii
and rule, is no logical exception. And he
is this brutal programme lo 'm curried ot
when thi) constitution guarantees the right
self government to every St t.! o ? A vote
two-thirds of tho States cnn change tho Co
stitution, says.Soward. And so, in order
cany it out, tho Constitution ts tv be arno
dod, and tho South is to bc .deprived of tl
right of sclf-govorumcnt.
This is tho truonim of Seward and hisu
scrupulous followers, and to-morrow tho \o
of tho free mon of Now.?-York is to bo tab
on that question. Tho porsoftal onalifioatio
er disqualifications of tho cundidatcs hit
. * f
nothing to do with it. lt behooves every j
hint) ill the commercial metropolis of this ;
! groat Union, and in the Km pi re State of New I
I York, to look well whore such doctrines ns j
I Seward has enunciated at Rochester will lead
him in the cud. livery merchant, every .
manufacturer, every mechanic, every laborer,
is deeply and personally interested in thc .
question. A cl oil these active classes of so- I
cicty hung ali the others, and the value of
our lands, our railroads, our ships, and every
thing tliat wc possess. Let them look to it, .
then. Kvcry vote in favor ef Morgan is n I
vole in favor of carrying sword and tire into '
thc South. Wo ask every man the question :
Arc you prepared to vote for a civil war
throughout the length and breadth of this
fair land? '1 hat is what yon will vote fer if
you vote for Morgan.
Thc Despotism in Baltimore
Our readers are already aware that the
' Marshal of Police in Baltimore, Mr. Kane,
? has been arrested by lion. Banks;, and im
prisoned in Fort Mcllcnry. Thc police
! board of the city have passed strong condom
; natory resolutions, and have temporarily dis
! banded tho police ef the city. Bunks has
I appointed a military Officer provost marshal
! ol the city.
j The Baltimore Exchange of last Friday
says :
J "Thc crowning outrage of the military
despotism which now" usurps the functions of
a once free republic was perpetrated yestcr
1 day. Tho '27th of June will henceforth be
? rwurou.bcrcd as the blackest day in thc au
i. na Is oftho history of Maryland. In thc
1 dead of night an armed baud entered our city
! and arrested Marshal Kane. At an early
i hour in tho day the police hoard was Sliper
! seded. Under these circumstances tho
j board had but ono thing to do. They could
j net stifler themselves or the police force to be
( m ade responsible for Major John ll. Konly's
, proceedings, nor lo be compromised by any
? connection with thc individuals to whom
i (.louerai Banks had confided the chief diree
I lion of our municipal lilla i r.s. Deprived ol
al' authority, the board could not, consistent
ly with its self-respect or duty, appear to
countenance the acts of the usurping power.
lt therefore temporarily dismissed the police
from further duly, ami ordered the men lu
take oil' their uniforms. Tho rule of the
clubs of other days will now be re-establish
ed. We give below a mere detailed account
ol' the events.
The circumstances of the arrest wore as
: follows :
" Between l\vo and three o'clock yesterday
; morning, about lliUU military, consisting ol
portions of lin' New York and Pennsylvania
regiments, marched into the city and pro
ceeded up Charles street to Mount Yt I not]
Ph ce. llcrc they divided into two columns,
one of which marched directly down to St.
Paul street, while the other proceeded tc
i Madison street, down which they turned. Il
j haltet', also at St. Paul street. Small detach
incuts were sent out from each column
which took up positions near Culvert street
so that M*'lsh;d Kane's house, on the SOUtli
? side ol' St. Par.I street, w?.s completely sur
rounded. '1 he door bell waa then rung.
Col. Kane answered from one of the ttppoi
windows. Ile asked the object of the visit
and \\ar> informed that it w;.s to arrest him
Ile immediately came down stairs, opeuci
the door, and delivered himself np, remark
ing lo tho officer that the government lint
put. itself to much unnecessary trouble, ns i
note requiring his presence at tho fort wonk
have been answered personally,
"ile was placed in a clos" carriage whicl
had been brought for the occasion, and thu
Conducted to Fort Mcllcnry, one half of th
detachment preceding and the other half fol
lowing him. He was yesterday allowed l
communicate with his family by loiter. ()i
tho march from the Federal Hill camp lo th
dwelling of tho colonel, all police oliicci
?iud other persons met on the streets wer
placed, under arrest, and forced to accompany
thc military. The same caution was takei
on the return march, and it was tilde who
tho military had got beyond the limits of th
city, cn route for Port Mcllcnry, that th
police and citizens were released. With th
dawn of the morning (he news began to eil
eula lc through tue city, and-at a very earl
hour crowds collected in front of the office
ol' tho leading newspapers."
