Brough and Lieut Gov.
Anderson.
We yesterday morning noticed the
fact, that ou tho night of the 22n nit ,
. i . ...... .
a uriuiuui uiiiurimuiuuiii was given
at the Neil House under tho auspices
of the- Hamilton delegation in the
General Assembly. The object of
the tutortaiutnout was Bet forth in
their caids ot invitation, to be the
commemoration of ."tho fall of Char
leston:" f'the restoration of our coun
try's flag to. its old ' placo ou the walls
of Jbort bnintor,'' and "the birthday
of the Father ot ' his country." The
Ohio State Journal gnvo to its read
ers yesterday moruiug tho eubBtance
of tho speeches tnado io response to
the regular toasts. . It was understood,
by6omu of the invited guests, that
tne, entertainment was not to wear
the fuce ot a partisan affair. The
regular toasts wete, however, pro
pared in advance, and the speakers
to respond to them were undoubtedly
consulted, each of whom belongs to the
Administration party, ibis clrcnra
stanco made it strictly a party affair.
Governor Brongh responded to the
first regular toast. In this response
in referring to the occupancy of Char
lesion by onr troops, and the report
that the city was on tire at the ticre
onr troops entered it, he eaid that, "on
that occasion, there was a more for
giving man at the head of the army
than he was,' for, instead of staying
the deroaring names, ho should have
rejoicod to have- seen it reduced to
abbes' and Bait sown apon its fonnda-
Lieut. Governor Anderson respond

tion 'alono was the jusfrjitribution ol
the angust crime conegcted in Char

The speeches made ,hv the other
respondents to tho rprular toast6
woro oT about tho STme temper.
Comparatively, it is of little couso
qnonco what they said. Governor
Brongh aud Lieut. Gov. Anderson
are at tho ho.id of tlio Government of
It is their doty
arge the functions ol
tnoir respective oLnccs and mamtaia
forthe peofjo of the State a humane
aud lolty character.
l' We aro told that tho' persons Itft
behind in Charleston wore poor, old,
decrepid psoplo, embracing men, wo
men and children, upon whom tho
buruiDg o'f Charleston would weigh
with intolerable heaviness. Gov.
Broogh Hys that tho "rebellion"
"'originate! in Charleston harbor aud
tho city of that uainu." Is there any
thing in tho nature of Charleston
harbor and the city of that namo"
calculated more than any other place
to generate "rebellion?" Aro the
poor pooplo of Charleston, who did
not leave-the city when onr army en
tered it, rcBOpnsiblo for the rebellion?
Did they originate it f We apure-
heud not. If, tiicu, tho harbor of
Charleston did not originate the rebel
li jii, aud if tho city of Charleston did
Dot originate it, and if the poor poo-
pic, the men, women aud children,
did not originate it, why should our
army wreak vengeance ou them? Will
the wreaking ol vougeanco ou them
render it impossible for rebellion to
bo again set on loot m this country
alter tho present one shall have been
brought to an endf It is not pretend
ed that it will have any such alloc t
ihe suggestion that uueh veugeanco
should be iullicted ou inuoceut par
ties aud on inauimate things, cau
alone bo prompted by pursous the
most muglignant, impractical aud in
humane. It theso men would thus
de&l with poor, dooretd old men,
women and children, and inauimate
objects, what would thoy uot do with
the rebels, should they lay down tnoir
arms and avow a willingness to re
turn to thoir duty in tho Union?
They would not receive them with
clemency. To them they would mete
out tho most barbarous treatment: aud
. . . i . . . . .
these Bumo political charlatans blas
pheme tho name of patriotism by say
ing they aro in favor ol the restora
tion of the Union. By their doclara
tious touching Charleston, we aro jus
ti&ed in ad jpting tho conclusion that
nothing would grutily them more
thau tho dtssolation of tho 6'outh aud
the extermination ol its people
Think ot it the Governor of Ohio
Would "have rejoiced to have eoju
it Charleston reduced to ashes and
salt sowu upon itn foundations"
would have rejoiced to have seou the
poor mother, with her babe' clinging
to her breast, deprived of a homo and
of shelter. This is tho method by
which ho would strengthon thu love
for tho '-old fl ig." , Whut love would
spring up in the breast ot a wnman
lor a flag, under tho folds of which
her all 01 home and shelter should be
allowed o be. consumed by lire!
Zieut. Gov. Andorsou said uho could
not defend any officer who ordered
the putting out of that tile," whore-
by tho nouses aud shelter ot poor
women and children woro saved
We don't think he could. ' Ho has
not beeu noted for being very success
(ul in defending anybody ; and ho
can't play Hamlet, cither. It was
not ncccoBsary for him to Bay that
"ho believed iu iu-brceding in many
lines, but not lor men," anl that "ho
had lost faith in family blojd." He
is known not to be a . "smart man,"
aud the speech he made on the night

A Letter from General Sherman.
The following letter from General
Shorman'has just been published:

Mrs. Anna Oilman Bowen, fialtiinoie, M l.)
Dbab Madau- Yourwolcomo lot
ter ot Juno ISth camo to me here
amid tho sound of buttle, and & you
say, little did I dream when I knew
you playing as a school-girl ou Sulli
van's Island beach, that I should con
trol a vast army, pointing, like the
s warnr of Alarac, toward the plains
of the South'. Why oh, why is this?
li l Know my own heart, it beats as
warmly as ever towards those kind
aud generous families that greeted
us with such warm hospitality in
days long past but etill present in
memory, and to-day, were Frank and
Mrs. i'oreher, and Elleu Oilman and
Mary Lamb, and Margaret Blake,
the Barksrlales, tho Quashis, the
Bryars, indeed any and all o! our
cherished circle, their children, or
childrcu'a children, to come to mo an
of old, tho atorn feelings of duty and
conviction would melt as snow before
the genial Bun, and I believe I would
strip my own childju that they
might be sheltered; nd yet they call
me barbariau, Vandal, and monster,
aud all tho epithets that language
can invent that aro significant of ma
lignity and hate. All I pretend to
say, on earth aa in heaven, man mnst
submit to some arbiter. He must
not throw off his allegiance to hia
Government or his God without just
reason and causo. Ihe couth bad

Indeed by her nnju-.tituble- courfle,
she has thrown away the proud his
tory of the pant, and mi open her
fair country to the tread of devasta
ting war. elm bantered and bullied
ns to the conflict. Had we declined
battle, America would have sunk
back, coward and cravon, moriting
the contempt of all mankind. Ai a
nation we were lorco'l to accept bat
tlo, aud that once begun, it has gone
on till the war has assumed propor
tionsj of which oven we, in the huriy
burly, sometimes stand aghast. I
would not subjugate the South in the
sonae so oueusiveiy assumed, but 1
wcu'.d mako every c tizeu ia the land
obey the common law, submit to t'le
same that we do no worse, no bet
ter our equals aud not our auperi
ors. l Know ana you Know tuat there
were young men in our day, now no
longer young, but who control their
felloes, who aasumed to the gentle
uieu of the south a superiority of
conrage and manhood, and boastingly
defied us of Northern birth to arms"
God knows how reluctantly we ac
cepted .the issue, but once tho issue
joined, like in other" ages, the Nor-
taern race, though Blow to auger,
once aroused, are more terrible than
the inoro inflammable of the South.
Even yet my heart hloed3 when I
see the carnage of battle, the defla
tion of homes, the bitter anguish of
families, but the very moment the
tueu of the South Bay that instead of
appealing to war they should have
appcalod to rcaBon, to our Congress,
to our, courts, to religiou, and to the
experience of history, thon will I say
rcaeei eaco go bacK to your point
of error, and resume places as A-
merican citizons, with all their proud
horitages. Whether I shall live to
see this period is problematical, but
you may, and may tell your mother
and sisters that 1 never !orgot one
kind look or greoting, or ever wished
to efface its remembrance; but iu
putting on tho armor of war I did it
that our common country Bhould not
perish in iniamy aud dishonor. I

Eliza for me that I hope she may live
