But thee, view I canuotbs in the slightest
degree shared or countenanced by President
' Lincoln, nnless we suppoae him entirely faith
' less to the' moat solemn pledges given to the
people of the United States in his Inaugural
address. ' I a that address, in order to quiet any
apprehension that might have arisen in the
most sensitive mind that his Administration
' would take any steps which might be construed
into disposition to Infringe in the least npon
Stato riglts, (he President reiterated and adopt
ed as his own, tbe sentiment put forth by the
Convention wbieh nominated him: "That tbe
maintenance Inviolate of tbe rights of the States,
and especially the right of each State to order
and control, its own domestio institutions, ac
cording to Ite own judgment exclusively, is es
sential to the balance of power on which tbe
perfection and endurance of our political fabric
depeod." This is clear and emphatic; but,
not content with this strong assurance, Preai-
' dent L'mcom added in bid own language, that
all the nroteotion which, consistently with the
. Constitution and the laws, could be given,
should be cheerfully given to all the States
when, lawfully demanded, for whatever cauae,
as cheerfully to one section as to another .
-i Not only did the President, in bis Inangnral,
" thus pledge himself to maintain inviolate lb
!,( rights, privileges and immunities of the severel
, States; but he also solemnly declared that be
- took the official oath to "preserve, protect and
defend the Constitution of the United States
with no mental reservation, and with no purpose
to construe tbe Constitution and laws by any
hypercritical riiles He went still further, and
asserted that, in coottmplatlon ot universal law
aad of the Constitution, the Union of these
- States is perpetual. "Continue," said be, "to
execute all tie expica provisions of oar ne
lions! Constitution, snd the Union will endure
v forever, It being impossible to destroy It except

Army Contracts—Depleting the Treasury
for Political Favorites.
When the country is involved In war, and our
gallant men are la th field, every patriot it
willing to submit to great extravagance, and
even some wrongs, when he is satisfied that
that extravagance It bectowed upon the soldiers
for bit comfort; but when money la taken from
th treasury of tbe people, by the "shovel full"
and poured into tbe pockets .of political favor-'
Uee, th peopl become dissatisfied and ret
tlve This hst been the case In. nearly all the
States, and especially in Ohio. From tb first
day of this civil war, there has been on con
tinual stream ot scandalous extravagances, and
the money bestowed by thousands upon those
who fawn and flatter about the exeoutive de
partments. Contracts have been awarded In
volving sums as tares ae tnirtv ana torty ibou
sand dollars, of whlob at least half that amount
was dear profit. These contracts have been
given to men who have been lustily bawling for
the "start and stripes," while tbey have been
filllnz their Dockets, with tbe consent and con
nivance oi tbe authorities of the State. Some of
tbee mei have toot who are old enough to
shoulder a musket and take their placet In the
ranks, to defend tbe"start and stripes," but tbey
find It more congenial to their Mere and tnterrtl
to stay at bom ana pocket tne money derived
from theae contracts.
' There hat been one continual scheme of plun
der carried on until the people of all parties are
disgusted. Tbeeontraete nave Deen privately

special favorite and ptt$. Eotn tht moss eft ht Re-

the details, or to mention named, but a record la
being preserved, which, when completed, will
expose the greatest rascalities ever perpetrated
nder tne guise oi patriotism. -Tbe
latent is the following from tbe Cincin
cati Commercial ot the7th. I have never thought
Gov. jJennieoo a disnonest man, but bow to ao
count for bim allowing sucb transactions 1 am
utter lv at a loss:
"Mr. George D. Winchell sent samples t j Co
lumbus of camp kettiet wbicn be agreed to sup
ply at $1 40 cents per neet three in a nest; tin
plates at s$ cents eacn, and tin cups at oyt
cents eacn. lie received a reply tbat tne earn
pies bad been received and abould bave atten
tion. He beard nothing more upon the subject
olnoially, but subsequently got a dispatch irom
J. L. Gill & Son, of Columbus, ordering him to
make 8,000 plates for them, Suspecting tbe
facts, Mr. Winchell went to LiOlumbut and dla
covered that a large contract had been given to
Gill & Son at tbe following prices, viz: Camp
kettles, d In a nest, i; Tin Cups, each, 7 cents;
Tin Plates, each, 7 cents. The contract was
signed by Gov. Dennlson. Gill & Son's bid was
more than 100 per cent higher tor Camp Kettles
tbsn WlncheU'f, and precisely 100 per cent
higher for tin enps and tin plates. We believe
that everv tin cud in Cincinnati could be our
chased at retaiHor fir cent each. The idea
of contracting to rT tn cents each for large
numbers is so preposterous tbat we doubt whe
ther tbe veriest lunatio tb the Central Asylum
would be guilty ot it. it be ebould, tbe Super
intendent would discharge blm as Incurable."

The Illustrious Dead—Last Respects
to Mortality—Last Words of Senate
Douglas.
The body of Senator Douglas has been visit
ed by over seventy thousand people since
Tuesday noon, when it was placed in Bryan
Hall. Scarcely ever bat tbe death of a great
man been tbe occasion orsuch universal sorrow
Scarcely ever have tbe people of America, with
out distinction of party, sector condition, crowd
ed In such numbers to pay the last tribute of the
living to the desd. . All day bave the approaches
to Bryan Hall been thronged to tbe distance of
two or three squares with streams of people of
botn sexes and an ages, siowiy moving toward
the ball where the body of the dead Senator lay
in state. Ail nig.t long, peopio continue to
com and go. Night belore last, there was not
an Interval er hair an hour when the watchers
were alone with tbe desd. Between two bun
dred and three hundred people visited the ball
from midnight to four o'clock, at which hour
th visitors began again to increase.
. A very touching Incident occurred about four
o'clock in tbe morning. Tbe guards bad been
alone with tbe corps for about fifteen minutes,
when a young woman, about eighteen years oi
age, entered the hall with noiseless tread. She
seemed not to observe th presence of any one,
but walked directly to tbe corpse, made the
sign of tbe cross, and, kneeling down, repeated
a brief prayer. She arose, looked upon the
face of the dead, again crossed herself, and
paased out of th ball, apparently unconscious
tbat any human eye was looking on. .
It it a solemn and impressive speotacl to
witness the vast multitude of people, as tbey
move silentlv along and gate for tbe lasttime
upon those features which in lif they bave to
olten seen lighted with expression, and red lent
with the glow of ferviJ eloquence that fell
from bis Hps.1 Many an eye overflows, and
many it bosom beavet with emotion too deep
and painful for utterance. '

A few hours beforwhls death, Senator Dang
las revived from tbo oonditlon of almost total

hours. Hit mind teemed to resume ite wonted
faculties, and b conversed in a feeble voice
with those around blm. H expressed a knowl

heard, but upon th wile's repeating it, his voice
ando frame eeemed suddenly to posses new
strength as he replied i "Tru jit child tie to

almost tbe last words b spoke. A few mo
ment afterward, he desired to be raised higher
upon tb pillow, in order tbat be might look out
from bit window. ( Th wish was complied

at to to ease or Die position; be answered, with

Mr. Douglas, more tban any American state
man, was remarkable for bit consistency." 1W
have read every tpeecb, report, document, let
ter and remark of bit that ever found it wsy
into print, and the who! constitute volume
of consistent devotion to fixed principles,
short time ago, packing our private papers, we
had occasion to read over torn hundred or more
privat letters written by blm previous to No.
vembef, 1860. ' Tbey were mostly of the most
confidential nature. In thus writing under the
moot sacred confidence, and during time of
great excitement, nr poured forth bis feelings
ana opinions respecting men ana measure! with
tbe utmost freedom; and yet there was not a
word or a line In the w hoi eerlet that would
notb additional proof of hit unselfish patriot
ism ana nis sterling personal integrity. Thev
spoke more clearly than public Speeches, tbe in
ner, secret thoughts and desires of the man, yet
never waa toer a worn mat oy implication even
conld be tortured Into meaning unworthy of
th patriot and apright statesman.
A few weeks ago, tine death had laid hie
mark upon that tram to long familiar to us, we
wet summoned to his bedside. ' Though racked
with pain, with articulation eo difficult that he

3d Inst, surrounded only by Immediate family
Mends ana bis two physicians, b breathed nis
last. This it all we have learned of hie last days,
except tbat, for a considerable time, his disease
rendered him mostly unconscious.
W must leave to others generally to those
who less profoundly esteem the deceased to In
dite wordy eulogies. Oar heart refuse tbe
task. Douglas was one of those men of whom we
leel that, even because tbey were tru men,
their Ufa seemt a failure. He waa identified
with the publio history of the country. He was
part of It. He lived for it, and said, with sin
cerity, tbat be did not wish to survive (As Union.
We will not say tbat be lived some weeks too
long, but we will say, that his death, mourned
note, at length, by tb United senti jient of his
loss, and expressed by the multitudes who last
year, by tbeir Uhe and villainous howlings, pre
vented him from saving our country his death
fits in, with gloomy harmony, among tbe events
that are transpiiiog.
We say what we know. Death has given us
a light to say what, while he lived, w would
not bave uttered. VI all men moving in pub
lio life, Stephen A- Douglas was the Aont.
msn we ever knew, ui all men we bave ever
known, he is the only one of whom we csn say
that publio lile, instead of deteriorating, ex
alted bim, morally. We bave marked In bim,
unmistakably, with every few yean of passing
life, an mprovment and gnwh morally as
mucn as intellectually.
He died because ibere was for bim no politi
oal future, because there is to be no uuited
country. Many years ago he told aa how empty
be conaidered the honor of achieving tbe Presi
dencyhow he understood that it was no mark
of met it, and no object lor tbe overweening
ambition of a true statesman. Two years ago,
when he was debating the point of allowing bis
name to ne used last year, as a oanaiaate, in
confidence that be well knew would not be
abused, be declared that be felt it to be a real,
and a great personal saoriflcs, on his part
We oanuot, and we will not, say more of him
than that he died for want oi the country for
which he bad lived. Hie strong will, which had
borne him through other Illnesses as severe as
his last, failed bim. Tbe future, bad he lived,
presented duties to him to be discharged, but to
field for ambition. He died at the moment
that the country seems paesing from a political
to a military domination from that of ideas
and consent to a neriod of brnta force.
Tbe men who will control in sucb a period
are of a narrow cast, and too much of Douglas
life and strength bad been spent for the coun
try, ss it ased to be, for blm to expect to live
for the work of reconstruction If. Y. Fa

Rev. Dr. Palmer, of New Orleans, in address

previous to tneir departure lor Virginia, said

five years ago, our fathers fought for the char

representation are correlative. We, tbeir tons,
contend to-day for tb great Amerioan Drinol

from the will of th governed. .
Comprehending the import of this ereat con

Political and Personal Favoritism in
the War Department.
W are torrv thst w hav to hollos, In the
highest places of official treat, at well at In
subordinate positions, an inordinat amount or
personal favoritism snd political Jobbing mixed
the conduct or affairs. XMotoniy have the
three great States of Ohio, Pennsylvania and
New Xork been disgrsoed by th lnoompeteooe
of their Executive officers, and all kinds of
corruption and neglsot suffered to infest for a
time the military oommictariat of aaoh Stat,
but there bave been similai abuies at Washing
ton, and in the War Department itself. It is
familiar to most readers that many appoint
ments have recently been made to high oinces
In the army, of men whose claima to be thus
considered were of very equlvooal charaoter.
We art no sticklers for a stiff military grada
tion and adherence to stereotyped rulee of pro
motion; nor would we. in organising our cltixen
army of volunteers, require tbat their highest
officers should bo all selected from the rsgular
army or tbe United States, valuable and ou
tlines Indispensable as a thorough military ed
ucation is, there srs emergencies and tbit is
one of them when the needs of the service are
too great to suffer us to bt hampered by rigid
military rules in this lespeoto mere ar ctvi
liant of eminent fitness whoso natural endow
ments qualify them for leadership. To tbe pro
motion of sucb, even over the beads of less able
men who hav seen regular army tervioe, we
entertain no oDjeation.
But when we see, as we have lately been
compelled to do, a large number of civilians sp-
pointed to almost the highest rank when we
see several gentlemen elevated to be Generals
of Brigades, who certainly have manilested no
eminent adaptation for commanding so much as
a column, and when we find those gentlemen to
be usually tbe political ai d personal friends of
ttnse who bave the appointing power we are
moved to regret it as su unworthy pieoe of fa
voritism.
The most recent iostsuce of this kind we bave
noticed, is the appointment of Mr. Cummings,
of tbs New York Wcrld, to be Brigadier Gene
ral, with the comfortable assurance that it is to
be followed by his appointment at Quarter
master General oi the United States Army.
While we have no or eollon to tbe conlerring
ot so important and lucrative an ottlce upon 1
member of the press, we think the ciroumstsn-
oes of this appointment do little credit to the
head of the War Department. Mr. Cummings
was, until recently, a resident of Philadelphia,
and an active, Vbeming and tolerably success
ful local politician. , He hat been for years the
special satellite of .Gen. Cameron, now Secre
tary of War and has been devoted to the fortunes
ot that not over immaculate politician, to a de
gree wbicn it would be a mild term to call in
ordinate. . . ' .. .
Removing (0 New York. Mr. Cummings es
tabllshed a first class newspaper, chiefly through
ihe contributions of the religious community,
who were assured tbat the World would eschew
the profane things of the vulgar press, and set
a lofty example of christian virtue, dignity and
decorum to all who com within its influence.
After having sunk a hundred thousand or so of
tbe capital stock in establishing this paper
which was tar enough from redeeming any of
tne pledges maoe to the donors the conductor
