"That I Have Sever."
The devil is good lawyer. So is Charles D.
Drake. Without intending to be profane, we may
say it lakes a devilish good lawyer to beat Charles
D. in managing a case or making 1 constitution,
But we have no doubt that if the devil h.id made
the Constitution of Missouri, he would have made
1 better one for Drake's purposes than Drake
himself turned oft ; because the devil is not as
mean as Drake, and would not hove gone too far
as Drake did in the matter of the test-oath.
When Drake inserted, in his symmetricol third
section, the clause which requires men to say, in
the magnificent oath, "that I have never," in the
language of But Lovegood, "right thar's whar he
overdone the thing." It is haidly necessary to
say that the writer of this is not a lawyer; yet we
Vnow there is a little clause in the United States
Constitution wbicb prohibits the passage of ex posl
facto or retrospective laws, and we know how hard
Drake (in the Convention) wriggled and squirmed
in efforts to overcome the restraints of this little
clause in order that a Constitution might be made
that would drive every 'sympathiser" from the
State. This reptile, called the "third section," U
the result of Drake's wriggling. He thought that
by making men swear now that they did not coin
tnit 1 certain crime before the CotMfitufton wet
adopted, would merge the crime in the swearing,
and bring the person swearing within the opera
tion of the Constitution. But (alas for Drake's
reputation I) judges of the law those calm, dig'
nified gentleman, who breathe a higher atmosphere
than Drake can ever tattc pronounce the oath
to be retrospective in its operation, as it is in the
-very wording of it. Vide Judge Burckliart's de
cision at Macon City on the 20th inst., where the
indictments in fifty cases the charges being the
violation of this oath were quashed on this
ground. Drake's fame as a lawyer as it is as a
man is fast getting to be infamy. Drake is
Hood lawyer, like "Brag is a good dog."

His loss to the Conservative party is a severe one.
The President his way to Cbleagr.
The President left Washington 011 Tuesday, on
his tour to Chicago to attend the laying of the
eornrr stone or tne uougia monument.
AM along his route, he was met by delega
tions of the people and societies with demonstra
tions of honor. At Baltimore, he made a brief
speech, and at Philadelphia a grand ovation await
ed him at the depot ; an address was delivered on
the platform, to which Mr. Johnson replied ; af
ter which be was escorted to the Continental Ho
tel, where a vast crowd assembled to greet him.
Here he appeared on the balcony and made quite
e lengthy, speech, in the course of which he said :
"I trust the day is not far distant when no hand
ot our country shall be arrayed in battle ogainst
another. I trust the day is far distant when
brother shall be set against brother, and shall raise
his hand against his throat. I trust that the day
is far distant when the land we lore shall be
ejain drenched with a brother's blond ; the bale
ful planet of fire and blood has disappeared, and
the benignant star of peace has taken its place and
under its influence 1 trust the country will return
to affection, pence and harmony, that reconcilia
tion will again be brought about and all be en
abled to stand together as one people in one
Union. So far as regaids the part 1 have taken in
political affairs, my public acts are already be
fore the country and it is from them you must
judge. Believing as I do that the policy I have
pursued has been calculated to advance and pro
mote the best interests of the eounlry, God being
my helper, I intend to stand by it, and with your
help and God willing, this Union shall be restored.
Theu let us stand together. Let us approch a com
mon platform. Let us forget wo have been divi
ded in parties, and forget to obey the behests of
party rather than the command of the com t y.
Let your country be savd. Let the interests of
the great masses of the people be preserved. Then
let parties sink into insignificance. If a party
must be maintained, M ft be based on the great
principles of the Constitution. Men, the Consti
tution ot my country is the strongest league which
has been forged."

About Politics St. Louis All Right roa

The Sovthisn Fai.
St. Louts, August 25, 1806.
Mr. Editor 1 Your subscribers in this city read
with pleasure the wholesome truths put forth
through your columns. It is hoped you Conser
vatives in the country will turn out to a man at
the fall election, and assist in ousting the Radical
usurpers. We of St. Louis intend to be registered
at all hazards, and will carry oua county for the
Anti-Radical ticket by 3000 majority. Now, It
is your duty lo second our efforts by doing the
same in your district 1 and I think your valuable
paper will keep your readers awi k to the impor
tance of doing so, by showing them that Radical
ism, should it be successful, would be the ruin of
But enough of politics just now. Let's talk ot
the all-absorbin topic Cholera. Well, it is
" playing fits" in St. Louis, no mistake ( but there
is little or no danger to those who are cleanly in
their habits and careful in their diet- There are,
however, a grea,t many who "rush on" in Iheir
"fast" whvs, without regard to diet or habits, till
they are attacked with the disease, when, from
being very brave (!) and declaring they "don't
care for the cholera," they turn out to be great
cowbrds, get terribly frightened, and (ns fear is
about as fatal as the disease itself,) their cases are
very difficult to manage. It is such as these thai
are swelling the lists of mortality. Persons of
regular habits are very rarely uttarked. Trade in
St. Louis in consequence of the epidemic is
comparatively slopped and (thanks to our Chi
cago neighbors of the press,) our misfortune has
been magnified to such an extent that much nf
our legitimate trade is being diverted from us. St
Louis merchants, however, feel that honesty and
fair dealing will prevail against the notorious shuf
flinz of Chicago sharps, and are confident of not
losing, permanently, any valuable trade. Coun
try merchants, who know our business men, will
not willingly exchange St. Louis for Chicago.
Of course your people know that the ladies of
St. Louis, assisted by those of the State at large,
are preparing for a Great Fair, for the benefit of
the destitute ot the South, and I must tell you that
we look to your county to exhibit its wonted lib
erality in furtherance of this grand scheme of
charity. The fair commences on the 25th of Sep
tcmber, and the preparations indicate it will be
the most magnificent affair of the kind ever gotten
up in this country. Remember, it is not a city,
but a State, enterprise, in which all Missourians
are equally interested. A great many auxiliary
fairs have been and are being held with great sue,
cess ; and it is proposed that the fair in September
shall be the chef d'ttuvi', to show our fellow citi
zens in the South that tee are one people, united in
bonds that cannot be severed. More anon.

The following extract is from E. A. Pollard's
last work, entitled the Lost Cause 1
But the history of the exfroordin.iry efforts of
the Confederate authorities to relieve the suffer
ings of Andersonville, through some resumption
of exchanges, does not end with the proposition
referred to as made by Commissioner Ould, to ex
change man for man, and leave the surplus at the
disposition ot the enemy. It was followed by
snother more liberal and extraordinary proposi
tion. Acting tinder the direct Instructions of the
Secretary of War, and seeing plainly that there
was no hope of any general or extended partial
system of exchange, Commissioner Ould In
August, '883, offered to the Federal Agent of ex
change, Gen. Mulford, to deliver to him all the
sick and wouaded Federal prisoners we had, with
out ins'sting upon the delivery of any equivalent
number of prisoners in return. He also informed
Gen. Mulford of the terrible mortality among the
Federal prisoners, urging him to be swift in send
ing trsnsportation lo the mouth of (he Savannah
river, for the purpose of taking them away. The
offer of Commissioner Ould included all the sick
and wounded at Andersonville and other Confed
Ho further informed Gen. Mulford, in order to
make his Government safe in sending transporta
tion that it the sick and wounded did not amount
to ten. or fifteen thousand men, the Confederate
authorities would make up that number in well
men. The offer, it will be recollected, was mode
early in AugustJ.863. Gen. Mulford informed
Commissioner Onld that it was distinctly commu
nicated to his Government, yet no timely advan
tage was ever taken of it.
This interesting and important fact is for the
first time authoritatively published In these pages.
It contains volumes of significance. The question
occurs who was responsible for the suffering of the
sick and wounded prisoners at Andersonville,
from August to December, 1SG3 ? The world will
ask with amazement if it was possible that thou
sands of prisoners were left to die in inadequate
places of confinement merely to make a case against
the South merely for romance. The single fact
gives the clue to the whole story of the deception
and inhuman cruelty of the authorities at Wash
ington with reference to their prisoners of war
the key to a chapter of horrors that even the hardy
hand of history shakes to unlock.

there being no steam ferry nearer than Lexington,
