The New York Triitwie m, of eourie, high
ly gratified with thie inflammatory epeecb of
Mr. rioiim. It thinks pnblio opinion hae
come'to the conclution that elatery It the
cause of tbe rebellion, our buiintea ia with that
cause." ' It eara that the epeeoh "will confirm
tha doubting, itrengthen the timid and convince
the Ignorant and Indifferent, that inasmucn ai
there hat been thlt deadly vlrna la our national

luti thlt feariul Irrnptlon and madneu, no
oh')ice ia left ua but'ohe between lta tMcr tsitr-
V- mnation and natural death. We can tamper
t with the fearful malady no longer." Thus the
' war with the Tribum it no longer to be ont for
tbe restoration of tbt Onion, but for the "utter
tzterminttion" of slavery.
The New York Tmf agreee with Mr. Suit
th t alivarv I tha eiuie of the rebellion,
tnd regard! bit conclusion as inevitable that in
- the- extinction of slavery must be found the
remedy. ' The only objeotlon it makes it to the
mode proposed by Mr. Bojinm tor effetting we

pecthas, under tbe pressure oi tne emergenoy
of the times, asserted t right in the President,
and tbe President bu acted upon it, in various
instances, in form, at least, to suspend the
right of kabtat cwpiir. We have seen, like
wise, (and when we romember that it it tbe
middle of the Nineteenth Century, we may
very well be startled at the reference,) we have
seen at least one newspaper probably more
than one newspaper flopped because of tbe
charaoter of lta attlclee - We have seen more
than one newspaper (they do not express my
aentimentiV we have eeen more than one
newspaper excluded from the service of the
mails without authority of law. We have seen
a Provoet Marshal tbe executive officer ot t

Now, these things are not oast In the teeth of
anybody, nor stated for tbe purpose of crimina
tion. I use them historically; I use tbem for
the lesson tbev teach. I use them to bring
tbem before you, men of America, where you
this day stand, after yonr Republican Govern
ment has been in lull and blessed operation for
These things are tbe history, except the mil
itary tiovementt of armies, of the attempt of
the United States Government to suppress the
insurrection. - Two very different views (I tub.
mit both erroneous) have been expressed with
reference to tbe events tbtt I have mentioned.
The enemies of the Government bsve cried out
about cruel, despotic, illegal oppression. Tbe
friends of the Government bave eald, it ia not
to be called oppression j It may not be legal ; we
doubt if tbey art legal; but they are justified by
the necessity of the case.
Now, fellow-cltixent, there ie this to be said if
tbe Government of the United States ie in til
respects as tbe friends of tbe Government tnd
of the suppression of tbe tebelllon generally
maintain, we tre brought faee to fact with one

Movement to Do Away with Sutlers.
f A Washington dispatch to 'tbt'N.! Y. Time
says that immediately oa the opening of Con
gress Senator Wilson will Introduce .a bill to
abolisb to office of sutler in tbt army. Ht
has been Impelled to this by reason of tbe ex
tortions and abuses practiced upon tbe toldiert.
In spite of the legal restriction against selling
to soldiers to an amount exceeding one-third of
their pay, It often occurs that .the sutler pre
sects an order on the Paymaster 'for three
quarters of the amount due the Soldier, while
one-half thus taken is too common to excite re
mark. "The prices, too, are exorbitant, the
profits often being from two to three hundred
per cent, tnd (he quality of the trticlet fur.
msbedts oao. at win be tolerated. Liquor,
too, is often clandestinely furnished. The pas
try and other articles of food furnished have
been found to cause sickness. It Is known that
In very many otaea the Colonels of regiments

by the Government for the obstruction of South

which wtt purchased tt that place:
The fleet whioh tailed from thlt port on the
morning of tbe 80 inttant, consisted of sixteen
veesele The crews consisted of fourteen men
each, except the South America, which carried
sixteen. Tbe cost ot tbese tbipt to tbe uov

of them were worth double that ram per ton,
tnd all wonld bavo brought mora than that If
