"Abolitionists and Secessionists."
Under the aoove capiion the Springfield
Republican truthfully says :
There is a sort of one horse loyalty
which attempts to sweeten the bitter task
of condemning treason, hy classifying se
cessionists with abolitionists, as equally
enemies of the Government. There is a
j class of politicians who hare been en
gaged for two years in abusing A bolition
ists, as the enemies of the Union. All at
once, they find their old associates turned
traitors, and learn that they have been
made the tools of the only men in the
country who had any design against the
JGovernment. What to do? How to gel
oat of their most ancomforUhls and inor
tifyiag predicament? The cannot give
up their pet notion, that the Abolitionists
&r very black traitor?, for they learned
that of the Southern traitors, who were the
only true " national men," only a year or
two ago. It is not sale lor them any
iongsr, to uphold the Southern traitors. It
might put them behind grated windows, or
bring them to a consciousness of living in
a very dangerous neighborhood. 80 they
insist that if they are obliged to abuse
good friends, the rebels, the AbolitionisbJ
shall be yoked with them, and go to ibfa
myin their company.
There are others, however, who take up
the cry less intelligently and less malig
nantly. They are men who are very hon
estly and very reasonably afraid of ex
tremists of every c!as3, A secessionist is
an extremist. An abolitionist is an ex
tremist. They therefore see no special in
justice in bringing both into tho same
classification, and join in the cry of the
sympathizers with treason against secess
ionists and aboliUonists together. Are
the j either wise or lair ? Wt think not.
What is a Mceesiooists t Ho is a man
(who believe? that the United States Gov
ernment has no rights which a single State
isbouad to respect one who believes that
State rights override United States rights ;
who believes that at any moment when
she chooses, any State ean secede from, and
break up the United States Government
He not only believes it, but he practices
according to his belief. He is, morever,
an advocate of human slavery, and a hold
er of slaves, and he secedes from the Un
ion for the simple purpose of benefitting
his pet institution. He is a man who not
only hates the Union, bnt he hates all who
love it, and not on-y hates them, but ap
proves of, or ingages in, schemes for rob.
bing and murdering thorn. The genuine,
secessionist is an enemy to his country,
an oppressor of the poor and helpless, and
a foe to everything which we holJ most sa
cred in our free American civilization.
He it is who has taken the responsibility
of this war. He knew his interests were
in no danger. He knew the Government
never had oppressed hi in. He knew that
the present administration had no inten
tion to injuro mm or his iavonte institu
tion. Ho struck wantonly for power, and
the murder of a hundred thousand men,
the bereavement of a million others, the
impoverishment of half a nation, and tbe
utter ruin of the other half lie at his door.
Now, what is an abolitionist? Literal
ly and briefly, he is a man who advocates,
and labors for, the abolition of slavery in
thi3 country. In one sense, every decent
man is an abolitionist, provided he has
beea bred in a region where -his jidgment
aid conscience have not been oornipttd by
direct interest in, or asi ocialio 71th the
iistUUttioa of slavery. All htKcana per

irnmediaio abolition of slavery. They
have in limited numbers, cursed the Con
stitution. Some of ihem, have been will
ing to see tho country divided rather than
see tho free States saddled with any re
sponsibility for slavery. But these men
have been few and powerless ; their .zeal
has outrun their discretion, and their in
discretion has destroyed their influence';
but their original impulses were good, and
they have loved the negro " not wisely but
too well." But where are the abolitionists
to-day? Almost all of them are support
ing the Government, while secession, born
of slavery, is demonstrating the devilish
spirit of that institution to be precisely
what they have always represented it to be.
The abolitionists will bear us witness
that wo have been far enough from sympa
thizing in their peculiar schemes, or their
mode of speech and operations ; but we
beg leave to say that we can. bear no coup
ling of the narass of secessionists and ab.
olitionists, as men who are equally guilty
in the eye of national justice, and equally
responsible for the evils of the present
war, without anger. Such an association
of names, which are intended to be dis
graceful epithets, is a mean and cowardly
act, no matter who performs it The at
tempt to shift the responsibility of this
war, with all its burden of blood and
crime and misery upon abolitionists, is an
outrage upon the plainest historical truth,
established by the voluntary boasts of se
cessionists themselves. The army which
is engaged in righting the battles of the
country, and pouring out its blood like wa
ter, is more than half abolitionized to-day,
by what it has learned of slavery during
the war. Are these brave and self-sacrificing
soldiers to be classed with seces
sionists? President Lincoln and his en
tire Cabinet would rejoice in the emancipa
tion of the slaves, and propose it. Are
they to be classed with secessionists ?
Out upon such nonsense ! The only real
enemies of tke Government are secession
ists, and there are none, North or South,
who deserve classification with them, ex
cept those who try to lift the responsibility
cf the war from their shoulders, or those
who finding it unsafe to be indecent, take
their revenge by abusing decent people.

In these days of tergiversation, when
men are evading and shuffling the true is
sue in the national contest when those
who pronounce themselves Union men ig
nore aud endeavor to deny the true cause
of the rebellion it is refreshing to read
such whole-souled, truthtul words as those in evei7 sc:i ana Cl,ra r ana Persecuted

tion to his address. Without petty cr
plausible sophistry, with eloquent words he
strikes straight to the iesus, and his senti
ments cannot but find a response in every
true Union man's breast :
" It wa3 slavery that placed James Bu
ehanan in the Presidential chair. It was
to the influence of slavery that the traitorc
Floyd, Cobb and Thompson held seats in
the cabinet of the nation. It is slavery
that marshals the rebel hosts and breathes
into their embattled ranks its own barba
rous firs. It is slavery that stamps its
character alike upon officers and men. It
is slavery which inspires all, from the
general to the teamster. It is slavery
whieh speaks in the word of command, aad
which sounds in the moraing drum-beat
It is slavery which digs trenches aad
builds hostile forts. It is shivery which
pilches its white tents, nnd stations its sea
tastes against the national Capital. It is
slavary which sharpens the bayoaet aad
casts the ballet, which points ftkex cenaai

gar and violates all the ordinary asMfe if,
war. It is slavery which detoUtti assi
devastated Missouri and other StiitlWa
States of this Union. It is slavery skat
has hung Union men in East Jennstsst,
assassinated tnem in New Orleans, aad of
fered rewards for the heads of Butler and
Johnson. Whorsverthis rebellion shows
itself, whatever form it tskes, whatever
thing it does, whatever it meditates, it k
moved by slavery ; aay, it is slavery itself
incarnate, living, acting, raging, robaHflf,
acoordiag to the evscatial law of its Minf.
More: as slavery is the cause, the srigim
of this war, with oat slavery it would feat
ceased long ago, without slavery it would
eease today. Ths slaves toil at home,
while the masters work at the rebellion.
The enslaved race is actaally engaged ia
feeding, supporting, succoring and assist
ing those who are fighting for their en
slavement and ths perpetuation of slavery.
Slavery has been our curse in tho past.
Slavery is our curse to-day, and will be
our curse in the future, unless a patriotio
President shall, with the mark of his pen,
sweep it from the contiaent. If slavery is
the cause, why not extinguish it ? While
I believe this war may be and perhaps will
be closed without the abolishment of tho sum
of ail villainies, still I believe sure, cer
tain and lasting peace can only be had,
when throughout our republic not a chain
shall clank upon or bind the limbs of man.
As the distinguished Senator of this State,
Gen. James H. Lane, said in my hearing
in New York last month, so I say now
where our army marches, there freedom
should abide; whero our flag waves ia
victory, there should the fetter fall from tit
slave; and where the Union Is restored,
consecrated with the vows of undaunted
freemen, sacred with tho graves of immor
tal spirits, let it be re-united in the faith
that all men are crested equal, and then
indeed, will our land appear to humanity
bright, beautiful and effulgent as was our
planet when, in the morning of creation, it
was swung by the hand of Omnipotent)
iuto .ethcrial space. Then, indeed, tho
tree of liberty, planted on our shores, wa-
tercd by tears and blood, shall continua to
grew and expand until not only shall its
pending boughs upon the one side kiss ths
Pacific and the others wash themselves in
the billows of the Atlantic, lr.it its folisgi
shall glitter on the icebergs of the North
Pole, wbllo the warm waters of the Ama
zon &nd Orinoco th-iVi meet them with
graceful dalliance. Its brunches, bending
Lire the Oriental banyan, shall take root
suit, I cannot doubt.
