The Cnlo Hereof the Border Starts.
The cruel and fatal policy of President
Johnson is producing its natural fruits i:i
tho Border States. Under tho lead of
such desperate men as the JJfairs in Ma
ryland, tho Bramlcites and the Burnetts
in Kentucky, and the "Clnybanks" and
Conservatives iu Missouri, the hcruie and
long luffcrin Unionists of the Border
aro to be subjected to the horrors of u
new rebellion. Tor il mint not be for
gotten tbat in all tlii-c Stnto.', and pirti
cularly in Man land, West Virginia, Tun-
nessee, and" Missouri, tlicio aro friends of
the country with opinions nnd feelings as
radical as any in the Northern State.
These Radicals have held their position
through the rebellion with tho aid of the
directive restrictions which prevented the
rctels from coming back and out voting
ihem. and they hnvo sustained the Nat
ional Govfrniiicnt with rare fidelity and
vigor Fighting for tho old flag in the
field, and holding up the National auth
ority at the ballot-box, tlicy have proved
to be true conservators of ibc prosperity
of their own Slates, nnd the powerful
champions of the Union cause. Against
them, however, moro even than against
the Yankees, the lualigni'y of the seces
sionists and traitors have been awakened
and organized. As the latter come buck
from their Colds of blood and carnage,
and insist upou restoration to thu rights

they shout for "the policy" of Andrew
Johnson, and with the help of his patro
nage coolly proceed to make arrange
ments to oust the earnest I'liku men,
and to icsuuio that merciless ascendancy
which almost pushed these States into re
bellion, and to check which the National
Government sacrititcd thousands of lives
and millions of motley. All these earn
est and radical border State men aro tho
defiant opponents of Andrew Johnson's
movement for tho rehabilitation of the

their obligations with a ''stern joy" when
