It must be a matter of real Carnest

are legitimate :

&C., ok., by those who do not lerecive
in this incident simply an assimilation
betweeni the sympathetic elements of
these States upon the great vital is
sues of the future. The whole affair
however is oxtraneous to tlin. vi,
tion itself-and while we believe it
defensible, it may be enoigh to sug
gest that a measure engaged ini by Orr,
Perry, Manning and Wardlaw-should
not lightly be denounced as either un
wimse or unpatridtic. The feature
however which has re'eived the brunt
of attack seems to be the niinth clause
in the declaration of principles, delii
ing the relAtion of the 0overnment to
its soldies and sailors. Upon this
poinlt we have bCCi almazed at the
loose, and gratuitous, adul utterly un
warrantable paraphrases which have
been mado of this declaration by the
objectors. Southern dehghates have
beein made to join in cxproessios of
applause of their coiineroirs and in
bestowing upon themx the thanks and
gratitude of a grateful nation. Theree
is no shape calculated to offend South

guenec of real michief, if it refuses to
recognize our impotent, utterly subju

and actUated by its own theories will
throw obstacles in the way of those
who are striving to rAlize our true
situation in practical action and to do
something to arrest the irretrievable

and feit that, the steamer Scotia,

the lato Afival of a similar stipment
was a sporadio case, an experimental
venture, merely as a speculation.
But from this second shiplnent, and
this.simuiaReous demand for our Gov

fairly.infer that. larger causes are at
work on the other side than more ex

clusion thatfears of a general Euro

notwithstanding the peace between
Austria, Prpssia and Italy, and Napo

empire is at peace ; and that accord

true view of the case, then Mr. Secro

faithful dischargo of my duty. (Cheers.)
It ii particularly acceptable at this time,
fresh as we are, from the battle-field ; but
th'ero is still a greater battle before us.
(Cheers.) In reference to what Ihavo done
it is leforo you. and it is for you to deter
mine what my conduInct has been. (Ap.
plause.) In eonclusion, let silence speak
for me, what I ought, to say and what. I in
tend to do. (Cheers.) Ii. accepting these
resolutions, accompanied by sentiments so
gracefully ut tcred, I again return you ny
sincere thanks."
At the conclusion of the President's re.
iatks, lie waa greeted with three tites three
cheers. Loud calls were then mado for
Secretary Seward, who said:

you for the welcome you have extended to
