determination of the Aministration
to Wage War of Extermination
Against the Rebels.
[Special Correspondence of the Chicago Times.]
WASHINGTON, Dec. 30.
. Tho re-aeRjuililiiig of Congress af
ter the holidays will maik an import
ant era in the history of tho war.
ILtherto it has buen conducted with
soitio shallow prutonso ns having for
its object ibo restoration of the Union.
The pretext is 11 ' laid asidu Toe
mask has iieen worn already too Ion",
in lh-' opinion of Mi. L;uc dn and his
advisefj. Now that ho U finally sea
toil upon the throne tor lour years
more, wirii pi.vers Ur exceeding those
ol a constitutional, m murco, it is lell
that any further concealment of the
real ubjocu and purp sua ot tho War
would oe the soeentt afT .elation.
That obj ct was pivt y plainly
shadowed until ill tlio recent speech
ol General 13 1 1 1 1 1 ; r in New 1'orK. and
in the resolutions ofl'er id by Mr. Rm
iin;, ot N. U . in Cougitas. It is, in
plai 1 words, no loiioer to treat the
inhabitants of ibo Southern Stales us
if tin re was any possibility that thov
uiigl.t, at anj lutuie timijUgan be
011 lellow- ciiizens ; but to treat them
as the children of Israel were ordered
to treat the Canuanitet., ibo Hittitos,
the Jebusites, tho Amoiiites. tho lliv
ites, and (ho Pur.zltes. and all oilier
inhabitants of tho land which was to
bo tiieir possession -namely : To ut
terly destroy them and th ir cities,
ainl to root, 1 heni nut, ihey and their
wives' and their little ones, and take
their pbi-sessions lor their spoil. Their
eye was uot to pii v, uor t!ie:r baim 10
spare.
In like manner our generals are
now to bo UHtriieted Unit, the rebels
having reiusod to submit to the au
thority of tlio government, having
relused the piouiided amnesty, and
having refused to abolish slavery, the
aie lias come, in tho words of the
President's Jat message, tu withdraw
all oners ol Htnnesty that have ever
been made to them, to consider them
as incorrigible rebels, and to wage
ugaiu-t tbeiQ u war of extermination
and conquest. Such a war will now
bo commenced, and will bo wa"ud
with the whole power of the yoveru
uieot. ..
It will not be,' however, any worse
:n its . features of barbarity than (he
iast , 'campaign of Sheridan in the
SI.e iand uh v.l!. y, nor will it
exceed th'. Se a;r u.l y practiced by
uiebui, Mdioy, and McNeil. Tho

t
as was stated in my letters three years

What they are determined to do is to
keep them out of tho Union, nut to
bring thorn in.
It requires no prophet to foretell the
result ol such a ptdicy as lias been do
terinined on by tho Administration.
The w nl; of exterminating ten mill
