EFFECTS OF THE WAR.
Wo must, however, do Mr. Philips thoj joBt
lre to raj that, aU from" hia hhiT,ba, has
painted the effects and consequences of the war
in strong tad vivid solor Such language as
we quote below, If It had come from the month
or pea ef a- Democrat, might have tubjeoted
him .tolmpr'sanment in Fort Lafayette or some
other Government Bdstile. After remarking
that he had so time to ''speak of ths war in It
elf." Mr. Vmum uMi- ' ''
Neither will I remind you that debt is. the
fatal dieease of Republics, the first tblog and
lbs mightiest to undermine Government and
corrupt the people. The great debt of England
baa kept her back la all progress at least a hun
dred years. I will not touob, neither will I re
mind you that when we go out of this war we
so out. witn an immense cuaoanoea army, an lor
mense military spirit embodied In two thirds of
a million ol soldiers, the fruitful, the inevitable
souro of fresh debts and new wars; I pass by
all that, and lying within these causes are things
enough to snake the moat sanguine friends f
free Institutions tremoie I or our future Hit l
pass those by. But let me remind you of .an
other tendency of the time. You know, for
lostance, that tbo writ of habeas corpus, by
which Government ia bound to render a reason
to the Judiciary before it Jays its hands upon a
citizen, baa been called the high-water mark of
English liberty. The present Napoleon, in bis
treatise on the English Constitution, calls it the
germ of English institutions. Lleber lava' that
that, with free meetings like tbis, and a free
press, are. the three elements which distinguish
liberty Irom aespotism, ana an tnat eaxon Diooa
has gained In the battles and toila of two
hundred years are these three things. Now
to-day, Mr. Cnairman, every one of them
habeas corpus, tbe right of free meeting, and
free press is annihilated ia every square mile
of tbe Republic We live to-day, every one ol
ut, under martial law or mob law.., .The Secre
tary ol State puts inti bia Baatile, with a war
rant as irresponsible as that of Louis, any man
whom bo' pleases, and you know that neither
prei a nor lips may venture to arraign the Gov
ernment without being silenced. .' Mark me, I
an not complaining; I do not say it ia not ne
cessary. ' It ia necessary to do anything to save
the ship. Load applause It ia necessary to
throw everything overboard that we may float.
Ii is a mere question whether 'you prefer the
despotism of Washington or that of Kiehmond,
and I prefer that ol Washington. Laughter
and applause. But nevertheless, I point out to
you this tendency, 'because it Is momentous in
it significance. We are tending with rapid
e'.rldee you may say Inevitable; f don't deny
it, oeceaaariiy ; 1 don't question it we are tend
ing to that strong government which frightened
Jefferson; toward that unlimited debt, that end
lees army; we have already those alien and se
dition laws wblon.in 1798, wrecked ths Federal
party, and aommoned tbe Democratic Into ex
istence. For tbe first time on the continent we
have sat sports, which even Lonls Bonaparte
pronounoes useless and odioua; for the first time
in our history Government spies frequent oar
After admitting that the war might have
been prevented, for a time, at least, Mr. Phil-
um. proceeds to argne that it reconstruction of
tbe Union is impossible, and that the Adminis
tration does not expect or design It: ',
It seems that like causes will produce like
effeota, and tbe policy or reconstruction is im
possible. And if it were possible it would be
tbe greatest mistake that- Northern men could
commit. OQeers J reconstruction is Dnt an
other name for the anbmiaaion of the North
It is her subjection nnder a mask. It is nothing
but tbs confession of defeat. Every merchant
in such case puis everything be bas at the bid
ding of Wigfail and Toombs in every cross road
at tbe South. For, you aee, never till now did
anybody but a few Abolitionists believe that
this nation could be marshaled one section
against another In arms. But the secret is out.
The weak point is discovered. Why does tbe
London press lecture ns like a schoolmaster his
seven-year-eld boyT Why does England nee a
tone such as sbs baa not used for half a centu
ry to any powert Because sbe knows of ns as
she knows of Mexico, as all Europe knows of
Austria, that we have the cancer concealed in
our very vlta!a that sbe has bat to stir up
the ingredients to violence, and she can send
our stocks down fifty per cent., and bankrupt
half our seaboard- Reconstruction is but mak
ing chronic what this week evidences what
England dares to do for the distracted Republic
I do not believe reconstruction possible. I do
not believe the Cabinet intend it.. If they did,
allow me to say for one, that any statesman who
leada tbeae States back to reconstruction will be
damned to an infamy, compared to which, Ar
nold was a Saint and James Buchanan a public
benefactor.- Slight disturbance in the rear part
of the hall, cries of "put him out," etc I said
reooceWucuou Is not possible. I do not believe
Ills, for this reason) the moment these States
oegln to appear vlotorious.the moment our armies
do anything that evidences final success, the wily
stateemanabip -and unconquerable bate of the
South will write "Emancipation" on ber banner,
and welcome the protectorate of a European
power. .And U you read the European papers
of to-davr joa need not doubt they will have it.
We shall never oocqaer tbe Sooth without ber
trying that expedieut. Do yon suppose that
Davis, and Beauregard, and the rest, are to be
exiles, wandering contemned in every great city
of Europe, to' order thai they mv maintain
Slavery and ths Constitution of 'S3 T They,
like ourselves, will throw everything overbiatd
before they submit to Yankees. I do not believe,
tbereiure, that reconstruction is possible; nor do
I believe the Cabinet have any such hopes In
deed, I do not know where yon will find the
evidence of any arpose tn the Administration

The chief difference between yViNDtu. PhiIt
Lira andjhe rest of the oooiiionked Republicans
Is, that he uncovers to the light of ' day' what
thef carefully cbnceal'uoder honeyed words and
smooth phrases, lest they should be hindered in
their need for office. PatLLirs lays that' "we
can do anything" In substance, that ,'we can
destroy the Union In ordea to save It! , "We
could," he exclaims, "cede the Carollnas.
Would to God wo could shove them into tbe
Atlantic1." '' And this Infamous" sentiment was
applauded by a New York audience!. 4
I This man, PruuuM, Is plainly as muon of a
dlsuniohlst as be ever was, - He admitted In hit
speech, that he 'was once a" 'dlsunlonlst. He
,. Well,I .was" a disunlooist, "Sincerely, for

and do yon suppose I am not Yankee enough to

Laughter and applause. . -
After arguing that a veoonstruotioa of -the
Union Is Impossible, and 'that Congress lias
power, qotonly to change Etsto institutions,
but to annihilate States themselves, It Is tbe
baldest bypoorioy to pretend to be for the Union.
It ia not (he Union the fathers made, that Phil-
urs and .his bo-workers want, it is a new Union
and a new Constitution such, as- Wajhinqtoh,

icncs as secession and into this vortex is the
mass of the Republicans being drawn by a force

Gen. Phelps's Proclamation.
The Abolition proclamation of Gen. Phelpj
from Ship Island, Is very unanimously condemn
ed. , The Boston Traveler is Informed that Gen.
Pbilts bas in former years been subject to oc
casional fits of insanity. '
We suppose this is oorreot, and that the "oc
casional " fits remain on him a great while.
This is the case with nearly all the Abolition
ists, They are crazy on the subjeot of tbe nig
ger, if Uen. pbilm had made his speech to a
Republican meeting during tbe election canvass
of J 860, It would have been landed as one of
the greatest of speeches, and printed lb pamph
let form for distribution, W suppose it really
is nothing more or less tban an old Abolition
speech of the campaign of I860 changed to suit
the circumstances of the case'..' We have listen
ed to just such tirades on tbe subject of slavery
as Pbelh has pot forth, from men In Ohio who
were 'announced the ''able' champions of lib
erty." ' It is In ths Wadx and Sommeb. style, and
we see no sense in classing Phi us as a craxy
mac, and in the same breath talk of electing
Ben. Wadi for another 'six year' term in the
Senate ot'the United States. ,'r:: ;.; . "."
If Pheltj is withdrawn from tbs Army and
sent to an Asylum, let Want, Son her, Lovkjot,
Stevens & Co., be withdrawn or expelled from
Congress and go with him; put them in the
same cage as tney are niros or tne same
feather.'1 ' !;!-,v':- - ; .
Phelh'i proclamation is nothing more or loss
tban a practical illustration of tbe principles
upon which the Republican party elected Mr.
Lincoln to the Presidency. It Is abolition Re
publicanism boiled down, and is now termed
"dangerous nonsense" by tbo vary men who had
advocated Republicanism on the same principles

Goverment and Bank Suspension.
WASHINGTON, Dec. 21.
A nnmker of leadinc financiers are herefrom
New York, considering a suspension of specie
payment. It baa been determined tbat while It
desirable to prevent a flow of speoie abroad,
the 1 Government -can . do or advise nothing
tbat looks Jike adopting retaliatory measures
toward , England. If . suspension happens,
whioh Is not improbable, It will be tbe banks'
own doing. , s'. ... .t-, --..-.-. -. : . t.
O An important dsoislon haa been made by
the Secretary of War and tbe Paymaster-Gen
eral. Tbe decision is, in effect, tbat a soldier
entitled to pay from tbe day be enlists, and
that he is not to wait till bia company is lull or
formal muster or tbe regiment into tbe Uov
ernmeut service. Cin. Preee. " '

Brxcic in thi Boston Banes The specie
held by the Botton banks fs $10,028,900. This
tbe largest amount In the possession of tbe

This means that IW Tfirtetrlit thinks It sood
policy for tbe banks to suspend speoie payment

purely literary articles are generally good.

sketch of Southern Life, entitled "Among ths
