Editor thinks a "remarkable lotter" f

wanting In sec you. But found yon had loft

done to stop this rebel sympathy in this
It is getting to be intolerable.
You know my sentiments on this question.
I am not poited as to how thia thing can be
stopped in our midst. I do not know
whether we nmt endure it or whether it
can be cuted either by military nr civil an-
hruity. It does seem to me if we had a
petmty Marshal appointed, say some good,
hidkiiw man, and a man of hark bone, here
clothed with proper authority to look after
these riouthem sympathisers, weroiilu stop
their cl'itter. i Ins limit ho dried tip some

The Editor does not inform tie how this
letter came into his possession. Tho infer-
'-nee is thuthc ttnle it. ..,
The Editor of tho Guzetto thinks this is
un awful letter, and dovotes'over a half a
-win inn to let his renders know "tho true
character nf Win. Smith."
Mr. Puiiih, it appear, thinks "rebel
-ympalhy" in his neighborhood should be
-topped. This the Editor of the Gazette
thinks is Uriiblu. Mr. Smith thinks rebel
talk is getting to be intolerullo. At oncv
the J'Mitor ol tho Gus-tto diKcovnrs be is an
'Abolitionist," and that it 'would bo dan
reruns to elect him Auditor. Mr. Smith
thinks a Deputy Marshal should be appoint
ed, who would stop thia treasonable talk,
md thus provent tho shedding of blood.
I'bia sugcostion is perfectly agonizing to the
mind of tho innocent creature who conducts

Then tho only
question fur jor and I is to determine the
mede of lestorinu the Governniunr, It is
not too lute to ask, but perhaps well unouub
to inquire, what were the causes ot this Ko
bo lion. I ounnotdu better than to call
your' attention to what one of the leading
eiriis, a Mr. Spratt, of South Ca olioa,
who addressed a communication at great
length, and as bo intended, with cons ult
mate ubiiity, replete with all the arguments
of the tolio d to wh'o'i he belonged, could
bring to bear uuon tho nriiu-inlns mmn

as contrasted with the Government of the
United States. He said there was no man
who desorred tho n imo nf statesman in the
the South, who would proton. I that Socks
sion was caused by any aggression nf the
North upon the rights of the uoonle of the
South. He said it was lill less the result
nf any act of oppression nn the part of the
United States Government. What then
was the reavonf He said it waa beoausu of
the dill.-'renc.? in the oigamz iti.ni of society
North and South. It Was because in tho
non-shivcholdiug States, from thj fact that
every man woe a freeman, you were neces
sarily Dem'Hiriitio; every man being a free
loan it resulted that the laboring class in
tho non slaveholding Slates had tho power
iu tno MDvernment, and it rcpnrod but lit
tic argument to prove that when thut was
the case, the Ourortitncnt was in tho heels
ot society, because labor was always in ex
cess of the direction of labor; that is to sny,
thcro wore inure laboring men, and there
would continue to be, than there were men
who by means ol their oaoitu directed hi
bor. He said when Government was in the
hands uf those who direct labor alone,
was in the head of -ooiety, where it pro-pi-rly
holnngud. And now, said ho, huving
cut. loose from thu North, havo wq eradica
ted the evil? Have wo succeeded in gaining
ourolijeut? Not ut all.
He was explaining in this letter that the
Government at Montgomery, Ala., hid
failed in meoting the olijeotsuf the re vol u
tion, because it had not provided forre-npen
ing the African Slave trade. Said liu.
will involve the necessity of another revolu
tion. Here is the evil; hore aro the labor
ing men, and they are in the majority, loo,
who wield tho power in the Government.
They vote at the ballot-box, mid from the
premises that I have laid down you will
perceive that Sluvery and Duiuuorucy are
incompatible. (Loud cheering. lie paid
a high compliment to the great New York
tftutexuiiin who ia now the Secretary uf State

gave him oredit tor being great, never ut
tered a greater truth than when he said
there was an irrepressible conflict between
the two systems of society. Great ap
plause. J And, said he, in thia addtional,
this second revolution, that will bo forced
upon us, although it may be bloodier than
the one in which wo are now engaged,
must get net or me last and the least ru
muinsof Demourauy, and, to use the least
plain and emphatic uf his words, we must
have a Slave Aristocracy. Well, lel.ow
citizens, if that was the sentiment ot on--solitary

been addressed by nn of the leading spir
its engaged in Rebellion, to another, the
trusted sgunt of the State of Louisiana.
