The Liberals in Mexico have re
leased the twenty-eight qonfederaten
eaptured near the Southern colony of
Ordova. As the arrest in the frat
place was unauthOrixed and unnecessa.
!y one,it is not at all surprising that
the release of the prisoners should
have so promptly ;itwed.
Aud. yet if the Lib.rals had not
wished to rolese them, to what gov
erament would they have looked for
relieff It i a ourious question, and
one that might have beoome of inter
est. 01tismne of no country, It would
go but poorly with twonty6eight Con
federates with a gernment that used
&o Se, and by the U. 8. Government
itill unpardoned. We therefore leave
it to the Philadelphia lawyers to de.
.-de who would officially afford them
lks Offlelat Call.
Elsewhere we publish the official
eall for the National Union Conven.
tion. As migut have been expected,
even this call is not free from objec.
tions. It will be observed that no
delegate will take his seat who "does
"not legally awcept the national situa.
"and wotdi"f endorse Lhe principes
aboe set forth." Among those prin
eiples the war Is denominated a "re
bellion," and the word "loyal" is
'used. Those intense Union men ought
to have left out the first at least.
We still think it is better for us of
the eleven States to leave it to the
twenty-six to fix up their political
trioks. If we are to be represented
there we should like to have it under
stood at the out4set that we never
would, never ouald and never shall
stultify ourselves by officially stamp
.lag as a rebellion what we consider as
civil*war. JEvuasOgr DAVIS Is con
