To all Unconditional Uwlon Men in
the United Stated : i'1
In tlie conclusion of my labt lutter
I eaid there were sonriu fcttturoa iu the
interference of tbe military with the
Maryland election which required
farther elucidation. -
It is a sad Sign of the times, that
the Executive authorities of the UrJ
led States seem to forget that we lite
under written tonstitutions and laws,
They seem to consider thotnEolves flio
lenders ot a revolution, eutitlod. is
such, to the unlimited power of bind

WliatsliadOAr otcontitutional or lent!
right has the L'rusideut to assniQa
that the governments oftlie seoe'ded
btatus have ceased to exist, or, if the
lavo, by what grant of power is he
authorized to reconstruct tliem? State
govennnents constructed bv any othor
power than a majority of the pooplo
to bo governed, aro hitherto unknown
in our political system, ilie wholo
proceeding id a military usurpation,
fraught with fearful dangers. i
ao in the elections within the bord
er States. The oath described bv
the military oflicors as a qualification
for suffrage (in tho case of Maryland
at least approved by thu I'rcsidolt)
are either without law, or in violation
of law. In his approval of General
ochenck s order, the L resident autUbr
17.es a d:rcct violation of the election
laws of that State. Iiear what lie
ears in a letter to Governor Bradford
dated thu s. cond day of November
last. Sayshu: "Tho reraaiuiug point
ot your letter is a protest against any
peisou.otl'ering to voto being put to
any toet not found in the laws of 11a
ryland. ?his brings us to a diffdf
uucu between Missouri and Mary
land. With the seme reason in bfth
States. Missouri has by lav prcAi
ded a tent for the voter with reteleVoJ
to tho present rebellion. ihf " Jary:

Consider the result of this reason
uitf. ueeaudu Jiieoun. having a
perfect right to restrict enllVad to
loval voters, has done so, and Mury-
aml, being thoroughly loyal and not
deeming it- necessary, has not done
so, therefore, I Abraham Lincoln, by
my Major Uenerai behenck, mll
prescribe such a law for ihe Male

President gut the power to UaUta

At the ontsct of the rebellion, the
country was ready to tolerate the as
sumption of illegal powers in Mary
land and elsewh re, under the im
pression that the safety of the country
required it. But the occasion lor the
exercise of such powers in Maryland
has passed away. Governor Brad
ford bears testimony to the tried loy
alty oftlie State at large, and General
Suhenck ad in i to the 'sterling loyalty'
of a "great majority" of its citiaens.
What, then, is the pretext for pre
scribing a new qualinctuion for voters
stationing eotuiers at the polls in viu
latio.) of the State law, and luurphi
the control ot the elections f The pre
text as stated by General Scbcnck
his original order was that "there aro
many evildisposed persons now
argu in the btate ot Maryland twho
have been engaged in rebellion
against the lawtul government
have given aid and comfort or on-
couragemont to othurs so engaged,
who do not recognize tueir allegiance
to the United States, and who may
avail themselves of tbe indulgence
the authority which tolerates their
presence to embarrass the approach
ing election, ot through it to' foist
enemies of tbe United butcs into
power." In an explanatory order
said : "Its simple purpose is to pre
veut traitorous persons Iroin control
mg, in any degree, by their votus
taking part in the coming election."
And this m a btate whose Governor
tells ns that "for more than two years
past there bas never been a tiifle
when, it everv traitor and every treas
onable sympathizer had Voted, they
could have controlled, whoever might
have been their canutdato, a single
department of the State, ofjeopardi

What, then, was the object of
military interference I The demon
Blration made at the polls untnistake
It seoms there are iu Maryland
number of political clubs, whose mem
bers are sworn o socrecy, called
"Union Leagues." These clnbs held
a convention before the election, and
prescribed a political platform for all
candidates as a test of loyalty. Can
didates wero brought out on that tilat
form, which whs thoroughly radical
and revolutionary. Conservative
Union mon, who bad stood by the
Government from tho outbreak of tho
rebellion, were to bo driven out of
CoDgress and the State Legislature,
and their places supplied by mon
pledged to support thu President in
ali his unconstitutional and revolu
tionary measures and designs. That
the military officers might know what
tickets to receive and what to reject,
the Union Leagna ticket was printed
on yellow paper. Proclamation was
made by one military comuer calling
on "all the truly loyal to avail them
selves of that opportunity and estab
lish their loyalty bv giving a tuit and
ardent support to the whole GoToru
mont ticket upon the p'atlorm adop
ted by tho Unkn League Conven
tion," declaring that "none other is
recognized by the federal puthorities
as loya! or worthy of the sapport of
any ono who desires me peaco anu
restoration of tho Union." At one
precinct, a FeJeral officer declared
that none but tlio yellow ticket snonio
be voted, aud eu forced kta declara
tion ; known sympathizers armed
with the yellow ticket, were allowod
to voto unquestioned, while thorough
ly loyal men, not so armed, were not
allowed to vote at all.
The contest in that election was not

lady, possessing In addition to rainy
prepossessing characteristics of per
son, a finely intellectual appearance.
She wus dress jd in a rich black moire
antique dress, but otherwise was very
plainly and modestly attired. N. F.
Waring, Eq., of Brooklyn, accom
panied her on Hie platform, and in troduced
her as an American lady
with American principles.
Tho fair lecturer was received most
enthusiastically. After the applause
had subsided, she spoke in substance
as follows :
miss, webb's addr?.sh.
She said that she Had studied p li
tics ; she bad been fotccd to grapple
with theno nnwomauly matters. It
had boeu her misfortune to have an
equal number of dear friends engaged
on both sides ef this unnatural shed
ding of blood. She had weighed thu
argument with the sumo tender re
gard a man doos when ho bas to de
cido between two valued friends who!
are in a didpute. No matter which)
side wins, the augel of death site
triumphant on tho banners of victory.

followed by cheers. 1 She believed
that tho A'dmiui?traioh' itself .was
revolution. Cheers. She could not
too much admire tho stolidity and
patriotism of the people laughter
aud their gentle virtues.
The eloquent lady then proceeded
to paint a glaring-picture of tho revo
lution, and returning to the present
era of American history, said that
there were eomu people iu this coun
try who considered tbd negro
mankind.' Miss Dickenson had said
that this war for tho fioodom of
negro, was holier and nobler than
war of tho Revolution. She (Miss
Webb) thought when she read' Miss'
Dickenson s lecture that Instead
hfiini? entitled "wordj lor tho hour."
it ahould have been called ''delusions
of the bonr." Carlylo bad said

Wheti tho influence of tho white eran
is withdrawn fruni them, they aoou
return ; tlie worshiping of snakes and
other such gods. They sink to bar

proclamations that r.uy bo issued by

have been told thai this war, to freo
the negroes, id a eubliihur sight than
the war of the Revolution. The idc

that this sentiment elicited was por
fi'ctly deafening. She quoted Seu3t.

Dickenson had euid l hat either tho
Constitution or AbjIuiunUui must
dio, Bhe would have uttered what ev
erybody knows to .ho tho truth. Ap
plause. Boloio Abolitionism sprang
up tho nogroes wero happy and tho
country prosperous. But when Mi
Seward instituted his "irrepressible
conflict, ' our troubles really began.
Miss Dtickunsou has said that slav
ery was thccanso of ti-o war. Tho
Aljoliiionibta say that theboiith el.uulJ,
not have Blaves and therefore dolugo
the countrv with blood, in carrying
on a wnr for their Ireodorn. MUs
Dickeuson had alktded to Gen. Mc
Clutlan as ,"fli general who shall bo
nam'olesri here and evermore." 6ho
(Miss Webb) askod her audience if
Geu. McClellan was uameless. Cries
of "N no." His is a name tint fac
tion and fanaticism dread and fear;
lliu lecturer referruu to iliss Dick
enson's statement, that the tumy was
not fi lilting for tho subjugation of
auy State not for the old Constitu
tion our fathers made, not for liberty.
She thought it would bo a good iden
to suud Miss Dickenson to the army
to inform it of tho ohjeets it is fight
ing for. f Applause.) Consolidation
is despotism and liberty is diffusive,
and he who would restrict tho latter
wages a wir against tho principled
upon which our Constitution is es
tablished. If Miss Dickenson's idea
is carried out, tho country ought to
be called New Africa. Laughter.
She (Miss D.) ha? plenty of sympathy
for thu negro, but nono for tho five
hundred thousaii I widows and, chil
dren of white m'jii who have fallen in
this war. Applause Had not tho
work of death gone far enough? Peaco
