First, then, let us asccrta in distinet
I., anid classify carefully, the mnCt ill
tile South who accept these military
bill,;, or profe-., to accept 'them, and
learn froit tlemi what they accept.
These are they :
1. Ofichlolders.-The most active
of these are Federal oticebolders, and
the Illost active, aatil, of' these, are
those who come or were sent fiom the
.orthe1rn Statvs. A niong these, it is
a pleasure to say, tlere aro solme gcn
ticileen f1ormling exceptions to tile rule',
but neoariy all of tiesc exeptions a-re
opposed to the military hills. Somile
few among thitem I know to he gentlhe
Iel, and who accept the bills, hut the
greater body of these oilciors secim
only intent upon Iiaking themselves
and the governmcit odious to out poo
pfe. The civil oflicers of the State
may be described as quiescent rather
than acquioscent. A few accept what
they are orddred not to reject.
2. Adventurers.-By these I 1en11
persons who never act with the con
sisteccy of' priniciples, nlor1 ill an1y spirit.
o Ilevotioln to right, njor in an ty spirit
of devotion to public good. They are
bred bvy revolut ions, ai, iI their itu,
breed the chief horrors of all revolt
tionists. h'ley gather o States ill
s trouble like lijes inl the roo11 of' the
t sick. They lire alwayson the strong
, side, Genoral. They comiposed the
a unprincipled portionl of the secession
- party. '- These are they'who connit
1 ted the fraufls, deceived the people,
i stirred tile passions of thb masses, who
SWelito into seerdt societies with an Ill
I dian naile, aid pledged thiemselvos to
force tho.State out it the people did
not vote it. These tire they who 'le'l
the people into their present condi
Stion, and *who seek to p1lun1ige them in
to 8till deeper in isfortunes." I know
a these men well. They are among
G eneral Pope'scounse'lors. They ac

1 They will serve out the "full term of

.scribes, to be relieved of tile disabili

good behavior too. They are smart.
