PEOP1LE OF T'H COllFSDERATE
Flow-cit&ens : The -result of the
"Peace Commissioners" is known to the
country. The hopesof those who have
hitherto believed thaf an honorable ter
inination might be put to the war by
negotiation have bedn rudely disappoint.
ed. The enemy, after drawing us into
a conference,'abruptly terminated it by
insisting upon terms .which they we I
know we could never accept. Our' ab
solute surrender and submission to the
will of conquerer are the only condi
tions vouchsafed by our arrogant foe.
We Vre told that if we will lay down
.Qur arms, and place .our lives, liberty,
property and domestie institution., at
the feet of President I4incoln, that he
will be merciful to ne I Upon his cle.
niey we tmust rely to save us' from
ilniversal cnfliscation and extermina
tion I Yes! these, are the conditions
upon which the people of the sovereibn
States coinposing tbis-Cbnfederacy may
be allowed to do-what? To-return
into "tie Union" for which they solemn
ly and deliberatily withdrew themselves
bdcausp their interest and their heonor
required it, and their repugnance ,to
whicll four years of remorseless and cruel
war have served but to intensify
Thanks be to Qod, who ooptrols and
wverrulos the counsels of-men, the haugh
ty insolence of our enemies, which they
hoped would intimidate and break tii'
apirit of our poople, .is producing the
very contrary effect I From every part
of the punitry there comes up in res
ponse a ,shout of mingled indignation
;and defliance
A nobleeahusidsm re-animatos our
gallant army who have been battling so
long for freedom and .iudopendonee I
Let us all be united now. Let there be
no parties-or faction among us. Let
ui rise to the height of the great occa
sion. Let us all be ,willing to spend
and be spent in the cause of our country.
Let us - coxtrihute freely, all that we
Jiave, if need be, to carry on the war
until eur froal triumph is re-,ured. Let
iss take fratiernal couns '. dogether and
cahmly consiaer opr condition and pros.
pects. -Such a survey, we b'olievo, must
tend to re-nssure and encourngo even
the least sanguine. We have, it is true,
recendy. met. with .serious disasters.
Our fortitude is being'severely tried.
Are have suffered, -iueh, and must be
prepared to suffer more in the Oafuse' for
which we are struggling ? Is the cause
worth the sacrifice ? To answer correct
ly we must constantly keep in mind the
end for which we are contnding.
What is our object in this war? The
'establishment of onr independence,
through which Alo * are to be secured
tile sovereignty of the States, and -the
right of self-government. WhAt is the
.alternative.?' Our subjugation as a poo,
plo ? Is it posible to ever estimate-the
horrors of 'this terrible alternative ?
Can the imagination ever color the pic
ture which would be presented in the
event of our failure ? If we fall. not

In the revolutionot '76 our armies
and our people suffered far mor&. thau
we have done. Our cities then were al.
most all in 'the hands of the British, and
we were entirely cut off from all supplies
from abroad, while our facilities for pro.
ducing them were infinie)y .less than
they now are. Greenb tells us that the
battle of EutawI was won by men who
had scarcely shoes to their feet or shirts
to taioir backs. They protected their
shoulders from b-eing galled by the bands
of their cross belts) by bunches of mo~s
or turfs of grass. A detachinent march.
ing to Greene's assistance, passed through
a region so swept by both armies that
they were comp olle(d to subsist on green
peaches as their only diot. There was
scarcely any salt for fifteen month', and
when obtained it had to. be used spar.
ingly, mixed with hickory ashes. We
need but allude to the terrible winter
which Washington. passed .at Valley
Forge with an army unpaid, half-starved
and half.nakod. and shoeless, to convince
us that much as out own bravo soldiers
are.now enduring, their fathers, for a
like cause, endured far more. Wash
ington did not then despair. Lee does
not now despair ofithe final triumph of a
righteous cabse. Why should we be
doubtful-nuch less desponnent.'of iun
ultimate success?
The extent of our territory-the, food
producing capacity of o'ur soil-.the
amount aid charactet of our population
are elements of strength which, carefully
husbanded 'and wisely employed, are
amply suffipiemt to 6hure our fin4 tri.
umph. The passage of hostile arrnies
through our country, thogli productive
of cruel suffering to our people nd great
pecuniary loss, gives the enomy no per.
manent advantage or foothold.
To subjugate a country, its civil gov.
ernuent must be supprbssed by a con
tinuing military: forge, or supplanted by
another, to which the inhabitants -yield
a voluntary or enforced obedience. The
