TWO WAYS---W. P.'S.
Mr. Wei-Wl Phillips has for nearly
thirty yeaZ jonored himself and served
God and f y a gealous, eloquent, un
tiring opposition to American Slavery.
He is an admirable public speaker be
inherited fortune and social position and
he has turned Lis back on all the allure
ments of office and ambition in order that
he might consecrate his every energy to
Universal Emancipation.'- In this, he has
honored Human Nature, and we very
gladly accord him the praise of eminent
well-duing. But for his misfortune in
having received his moral and religious
training from a Bible wherefrom the xiiith
chapter of L Corinthians was unaccounta
bly omitted, he might have taken rank
among the very foremost men of our age.
But Mr. Phillips is not content with
believing and proclaiming his own way of
serving the Anti-Slavery cause the very
best way which every one may properly
do he persistently, and we judge consti
tutionally, acts as though incapable of
seeing or realizing that there is any other
way. It docs not suffice him to account
all who pursue a different course from
that he chalks out either short-sighted or
chicken-hearted he insists that they are
hypocrites and swindlers. Herein we sub
mit that he betrays a lack of charity
which argues a limited comprehension or a
deficit of sense. Salmon P. Chase has
been an avowed Abolitionist nearly as
loog as Wendell Phillips ; but Mr. Chase
has seen fit to act upon and through exist
ing political parties, while Mr. Phillips
has been impelled to eschew and vehe
mently denounce them all. We judge
that Mr. Chase has contributed more ef
fectually to the overthrow of Slavery than
Mr. Phillips has; at all events, each has
done what he could. Yet, last year, when
there was a prospect of Mr. Chase's nom
ination for President, Mr. Phillips pub
licly denounced him (apropos to nothing)
in a public meeting in this City, procla
minsr him a truckler, trimmer and tiuie
server, merely because he did not, on a
certain occasion, precipitate his S.tute of
Ohio into a forcible collision with the au
thorities of the United States. And this
was but one of many like escapades where
in he has seen fit to iudulga his humor at
the expense of our present Chief Justice.
President Lincoln had a rough experi
ence of Mr. Phillips's pre-eminence in the
invention of execrable motives for other
men's acts and in the discharge of oppro
brious epithets. ''The blave-hound of Illi
nois" was one of his hss chaste than vigo
rous characterizations of our martyred
President when the latter was first a can
didate for President. His copious objur
gations during the last canvass were usu
ally still less polite. That Mr. Lincoln was
not pledged to Emancipation did not
mean emancipation had no heart in his
great work that his rei election would
rivet the manacles of the bondmen, &c,
&c, such was the staple, as we recollect it,
of his fulminations. He did not mean to
be unjust, but he is liable to error not on
the side of generosity or mercy. Presi
dent Lincoln being dead, Mr. Phillips
turns to bestow like delicate attentions on
his successor. Mr. Johnson believes iu
and favors the extension of the Elective
Franchise to Blacks ; but, as he holds that
no State Las gone out, or could go out of
the Union, he believes that the several
Southern State Constitutions stand as be
fore their alleged Secession, and that the
Right of Suffrage iuheresiu those entitled
to vote by those Constitutions respective
ly, until legally extended through consti
tutional amendment by them.
Now we do not insist that this is the
true doctrine we do not admit an unqual
ified right in the enfranchised people of
any State to do as they will with tbe resi
due. Yet we insist that President Johu
soq's view is one that a true man m iy hon
estly, conscientiously hold may hold it
without being a hypocrite, a deuiogngue,
or a tool of the Slave Power. And we
think few considerate persons' will deny
that it is greatly desirable if the desired
reparations in the status of the Freedmen
can be achieved through the several States
rather than over them that it would be
more stable, less grudging, more real, if
thus accomplished. In fact, we should
prefer waiting a year or two, or accepting
a limited enfranchisement, to a full recog
nition of the Equal Rights of Man by vir
tue only of a Presidential edict, an order
from the War Department, or even an act
Mr. Phillips has, of course, a very diff
erent conception. He denounces any re
construction of the revolted States which
does not accoid the Right of Suffrage to
the Freedmen as "a practical surreuder to
the Confederacy," "a practical fraud on
the North," whereby all the blood and
treasure lavished to uphold the Uuion will
have been tqumdered nay, "stolen."
And he suggests a repudiation of our Na
tional Debt as a legitimate and justifiable
counteraction of tbe policy to whiuh he
That Mr. Phillips is sincere in all this,
we will not doubt. That he is not consid
erate nor wise, we are confident. He is
not considerate, because, h id be been of
fered, five years ago, the Emancipation of
the Southern States without their Enfrau.
ehisemeut, we are morally certain that he
would have eagerly and gratefully accept
ed. Nay : we believe he would have giv
en a larger share of his fortune to effect
such Emancipation than he has loaned to
the Government to help carry it through
our latt arduous and costly etrujgle, or we
should never have had from Lira this
menace of contingent Repudiation.
There may be others who concur with
Mr. Phillips that it would now be wise and
well for Abolitionists to denounce and
oppose the Federal Administration, and
set all the patronage and power of the
Government against them, in the interest
of Negro Suffrage. They, of course, deem
this the right way to achieve that end.
We, on the other band, regard it as sure
to defeat its present achievement, and
likely to render it forever unattainable.
Hence Thi Tkibuxe is freely stigmatised
by the Phillips school as timid, or half,
hearted, or vacillating, or impracticable,
because we adhere to the policy of attempt
ing what may be hoped attainable rather
than waste strength in essaying the im
possible content to do the good that is
practicable to-day, in the hope that this
may render further good practicable to
morrow. Ours is a humbler and less bril
liant career than that of the tew President
of the American Anti-Slavery Society;
but let it be judged by its fruits, and we
are content to abide the verdict. Ar. Y.
A correspondent at Washington writes
as follows concerning the Sherman Stan
ton controversy :
"Secretary Stanton does not intend to
allow himself to be drawn into a newspa
per controversy with General Sherman.
Tbe Secretary feels conscious that his
action on the Sherman-Johnston armistice
was for the best interests of the country,
and he is content that the matter shall
rest where it now lies, notwithstanding he
has abundance of documentary evidence at
his command to prove the fallacy of many
of Sherman's arguments. General Sher
man, as is well known, proclaimed peace
from the Potomac to tbe Rio Grande, yet,
at that time, none knew better than he
that two large rebel armies were still in
the field : Dick Taylor's and Kirby Smith's
besides various detachments of hostile
rebels scattered throughout the several
southwestern States, numbering in the ag
gregate more than 100,000 men, whom
Johnston did not even pretend to surrender.
In order to check a false impression which
was rapidly spreading throughout tbe
country, Secretary Stanton's disapproval
of these term3 was spread before the pub
lic immediately upon the receipt of the
Sherman- Johnston memorandum. Gener
al Grant was sent to North Carolina with
orders to relieve Sherman should he refuse
to move against Johnson immediately."
A late dispatch from Washington savs
that the published reports of the difficulties
between President Johnson and Secretary
Stanton, are sheer nonsense. They have
not even the unreliable foundation upon
which the hotel rumors are built. It can
be stated on undoubted authority that no
disagreement on any subject has occurred
between the President and the Secretary,
since Mr. Johnson took his seat as Chief
Magistrate, nor is there any likely to oc

News from Washington.
A late dispatch from Washington gives
the following important news items :

Benjamin J. Harris, member elect of Con
gress from Maryland, as effectually c in
cluded by the President's remission of the
sentence passed by the Court Marshal.

There is much speculation indulged in
as to the course the Government will pur
sue in the di-po-ii'ion of J.-ff. Davis' trial.
Upon good au homy, we are en;ibled t'
say that the trial will not take placj at all
till the conclusion of the assassination
trial now in progress. When the bittei
cases are disposed of Jeff. Davis will hi
put upon his trial.
The renewal of the reports of theresig
nation of Secretary Stanton was the causi
of much comment on the part of that gen
tleman. He is greatly amused at sensa
tion reports of his resignation and diffi

Tho Question of the Day.
In the New York Daily Tribune, of
June 2d, we find a full report of the very
eloquent eulogy on Abraham Lincoln de
livered in Boston recently by Hon.
Charles Sumner. The following is an ex
It is by ideas that we have conquer
ed, more than by armies. The sword of
the Archangel was less mighty than the
mission he bore to the Lord. But if the
ideas which might have given us the vic
tory are now neglected ; if the promises
of the Declaration, which the Rebellion
openly assailed, are still left unfulfilled,
then will our blood and treasure have
been lavished in vain. Alas ! for tbe
dead who have given themselve sso bravely
to their country; alas! for the living who
have been left to uiourn the dead ; if any
relic of Slavery is allowed to continue ;
especially if this bloody impostor, defeat
ed in tbe pretension of property in man,
is allowed to perpetuate on Oligarchy of
the skin !
And bow shall these ideas be saved ?
At this mjme: t all turns on tbe colored
suffra-re of the Rebel States. This is now'
the point of national safety. A mistake
on this point is worse than the loss of a
The argument for the colored suffrage
is overwhelming. It springs i'roin the ne
cessity of the case, as well as from the
rights of man. This suffrage is needed
for the security of the colored people, for
the stability of the local government, and
forthe strength of the Union. Without
itthere is nothing but insecurity for the
colored people, instability for the local
government, and weakness for the Union,
involving of course the National credit
Without it the Rebellion will break forth
under a new alias, unarmed it may be, but
with white votes to take possession of the
local government and wield it at will,
whether at home o"r in the national coun
sels. If it be said that the colored peo
ple are unfit, then do I say they are more
til than their recent musters, or even than
many among the "poor whites." They
have been loyal always, and who are you,
that, uudir any pretense, exalts the prej
udices of the disloyal above the rights of
the loyal ? Their suffrage is now needed.
An English statesman, after the-acknowl-edgmeut
ot the Spauish Colonies as Inde
pendent States, boasted that he had call
ed a new world into existence to redress
the balance of tbe did. In similar
spirit, we too must call a n w ballot iuto
existence in order to overcome the pre
ponderance of those who have not yet
learned the duty of justice to the colored
The same National outhority that struck
down Slavery must Bee that this other
pretension is not premitted to survive ;
nor can there be any doubt that the au
thority which struck down Slavery is
competent to this kiiidred duty. Each is
a part of that great policy of justice
through which alone can peace be made
permanent and immutable. Nor can the
Republic shirk this remaining duty, witbi
out leaving emancipation uutinislied aud
the promises of the Declaration cf Inde
pendence unfulfilled. Vaiu is the gift of
liberty, if you surrender the rights of
the freedman to be judged by the recent
asserters of property iu man. Burke, iu
his day, saw the fLgraut ineousistency
and denounced it, saying, that whatever
such people did on tins subject was " ar
rant trifling," and notwithstanding its
plausible form, always wauted what he
amply called " the executive principle."
These words of wirning have been adopt
ed aud repeated by two latter statesmen,
George Cauning and Henry Brougham ;
but they are so plain as not to need the
support of names. The infant must not
be handed over to be suckled by the wolf,
but carefully nursed by its parent; and
since the Republic is the parcut of eman
cipation, the Republic must nurse the im
mortal infant into maturity and strength.
It is the Republic which at the beginning
took up the great work. The Republic
must finish what it began ; and it cannot
err on this occasion, if, in anxious care,
it holds nothing done so long as anything
remains undone. It is the Republic,
which, with matchless energy, hurled for
ward its armies until it conqured. The
Republic must exact that 'security for
the future, 'without which this unparalleled
war will have been waged in vain. It is
the Republic which to day, with one con
senting voice, commemorates the murder
ed dead. The same Republic, prompt to
honor him, must require that his promises
to the oppressed race be maintained in all
their integrity and completeness, in letter
and spirit, so that tbe great cause for
which he became a sacrifice, may not fail.
His martyrdom was a new pledge beyond
any even in life.
There can be no question here whether
a State is in the Union or out of it. This
is but a phrase on which discussion is use
less. Look at the actual fact. Here all
will agree. The old governments are va.
cated, and this is enough. Until the whole
body of loyal people have set up a gov
ernment, all is is under the National au
thority, acting by the executive or by
Congress: and, since the Constitution,
even without the injunction of the Dec
laration of Independence knows nothing of
color, it is the obvious duty of the Na
tional authority to protect all loyal people
gainst any denial of rights on this pre
tention. Already it has been undertaken
to say that certain persons shall not vote.
Surely the same authority which may
unit the electoral law ot slavery may
enlarge it. If the National author
ity can do anything about elections; if it
can order an election; if it can exclude
a traitor who is still at large, it can admit
a loyalist, whose only capacity is Ms
The colored suffrage is now a necessity.
But beyond this in making it an essential
vendition of the restoration of the Rebel
States to the Uuion, we follow, first, the
law of reason and of mture, and second
ly, the Constitution not only in its text,
but as interspersed by the Declarat on of
Independence. By reason aud nature
here can be no denial of rights on ac
ount of color : and we can do nothing
vhich is thus irrational and unnatural.
By the Contitu'ion it is stipulated th it
he " United States shall guaranty to ev
ry St ite a republican form of g ivern
nent;" but the meaning of this guaran
ty must be found in tbe Declaration of
Independence, which is tl e controlling
preamble of the Constitution. Beyond
ill question tbe United States, when call
d t'j mforae this guaranty
on the Equality of all Men before the law,
and the consent of the governed. Such
is the true idea of a Republican govern
ment according to American institu
tions. The slave-masters, driven from their
first intrench ments, already occupy inner
defeuses. Property in man is abaudoued;
but they now iusi-t that colored persons
shall not enjoy political rights. Liberty
has been wou. The battle for equality is
still pending. And now a new compro
mise is proposed by which colored persons
are to be sacrificed iu the name of State
Rights. It is wrong that it should be so.
But I do not despair. The cause may be de
layed ; but it cannot be lost ; and all who
set themselves against it will be overborn,
for the cause of bumanity. Not the rich
aud proud, but the poor and lowly will be
tho favorites of an enfranchised republic.
Tbe words of the prophet will be fulfilled:
" And I will punish the people for their
evil, and the wicked fur their iuiquity, and
I will cause the arrogance of the proud to
cease, and I will lay 1 w the hautiuess of
the terrible. I will make a man more
precious tbuu gold, even a man, than the
golden wedge of Ophir." I catch those
sublime words of prophecy,and echo them
back as the assurance of triumph.
Fellow-citizens, your task is before you
Mouru not the dead, bat rejoice iu his
life and example. Rejoice as you point
to this child of the people who was lifted
so high, that Republican Institutions be.
come manifest in him. Rrjoice that
thraugh him Emancipation was proclaimed.
Above all, see to it that his constant vows
are lulfilled, and that the promises of the
Fathers are maintained, so ttiat no person
in the upright form of man can be shut
out from their protection. Then will the
Unity of the Repuplic be fixed on a foun
dation that caouot tail, and other nations
will enjoy its security. The corner-stoue
of National independence is already iu its
place, aud on it is inscribed the name of
George Washington. There is another
stone which must have its place at tbe
coruer also. This is the Declaration of
Independence, with all its promes ful
filled. On this stone will be gratefully
iutcribed the name of Abraham Lincoln.
If we take the couuty press as a true
expositor of public opinion, we will arrive
at the conclusion that the masses of the
people are earnestly iu favor of the nomi
nation of John Brough for another term
as Governor of the State of Ohio. We
here make a couple of extracts from our
exchanges as indicative of the popular
feeling. The Dayton Journal speaks as
The Journal committed itself, some
weeks ago in favor of the renomination
of John Brough for Governor of Uhio
Our main reasons for doing so were as
Firt John Brough is a man of extra
ordinary executive capacity.
Second He is officially incorruptible.

ivo at the right time.
Fourth When the country needed
soldiers to defend the Goven.ment, he
boldly and confidently called upon the
National Guard, and, at his summons.
4t,uuu oi tne uooiot men ot tne state
dropped their business in a day, and
iiiaicuea to tne trout, thus enabling our
veterans to crush the rebellion.
Fifth He is thoroughly patriotic.
Sixth lie is essentially aud thoroughly
a representative man of tbe average com
mon sense of the sturdy people.
Seventh He has made an admirable
Governor, and this day he stands, in pub
lic reputation, in Washington, New York,
aud all over tbe country, in the very front
rank of able and patriotic Governors.
There is no doubt that Ohio, the most
fortunate State of the Union in men of
glorious character, might find many ac
ceptable candidates for Governor, but it is
very questionable whether she can afford
to repudiate an officer who has discharged
his duty so faithfully as John Brough has.
Many other gentlemen, no doubt, may be
fouud who have studied Count D'Orsay
more attentively than Gov. Brough has
found time to do, but we have yet to learn
that the people have less regard for a
faithful officer because his manners are
not moulded in a dancing school. Presi
dent Lincoln was not an elegante, yet the
people thought very well of him, and we
are inclined to think that when the masses
are consulted, they will not be content to
dispense with the services of Gov. Brough
because he cannot dance a minuet as easily
as scheming politicians can find fault with
their superiors. We shall regard, it a
public misfortune if Gov. Brough shall
not be renominated. Tbe tone of the
country press, however, satisfies us that
the hardy yeomanry of Ohio do not pro
pose to be cheated by politicians.
Tho Lancaster Gazette also favors the
nomination of Gov. Brough. It says :
That there is considerable feling in
the army against the re-election of the
present Governor we have no doubt, but
we believe that a vast majority of the
soldiers are decidedly in favor of his re
election. The opposition is confined prin
cipally to officers. e are not endeavor.
ing now to array the privates against tbe
officers. V e are simply stating the facts
The privates and we think a majority of
tue officers are satisued with Urough,and
have been so well satisfied with his ad
ministration that they are insisting upon
his filling the chair a second term. His
adtniuisiration has been remarkable for
ecouomy, qu:et energy, and prompt aud
systematic dispatch of business. He is
recognized as one of the very best execu
tive initids in the country, and as there
are large settlements to make with the
Gene al Government and a vast amount of
business to transact in clearing away the
remains of the rebelliou, the people will
demand a business mind of the first order.
We believe a great majority of both sol
diers aud civilians are favorable to the rc
n iminatiou of Bnvuh, and are not dis
posed to ask whether or uot be will bo the
most popular man for the campaign.
They know he is thoroughly competent,
and has the run of the executive busi
ness. Among the Military Candidates pro
posed are Generals Sclienck, Cox, Garfield,
Leggett, Hays and Steadman. They are
every one of them able men, and shrill re-
ceive a hoarty support if nominated. -1

with the request, but still the colored

stood by, seeing the want of bids, re
marked, "Misther' I will give yon a

the witty Hibernian, "I bid ye good

that this brought down the house, and
