The Conservative Addree
To the people of the United States: .
Dangers threate. The ConCutiton, t'ie
citadel of our liberties, is direc te~ssaud.
The future is -dark, nutese the pecple will
come to the rescune In this hour of peril
the National Union should be the watch
word of every true man. As essential .to
National Union, we must maintain unim
paired the rights, the dignity and the equal
ity of the States, including the rights of re
presentation in Congress, and the exclu vre
right ofeach Stateto control its own domes
tic concern, subject only to the Coastitu.
tionofthe United States. Aftera uniform
construction of the Constitution for more
than half a century, the assumption of new
and arbitrary powers in the Federal Govern
ment is subversive of our system and des
tractive dF liborty.
A free intWchange of opinion and kind
feeling between the citiseus of all the States
is necessary to perpetuity of the Union.
At present eleven States are excluded from
the National council. For seven lone
months the present Congress has persist
ently denied any right of representation to
the people of these States.
Laws affecting their.hign t and dearest
interests have been pas ew ithout their
consent, and in disregard ' the fundamen
tal principle of free government. This de
nial of representation has been made to all
the members from a State although the
State in the language of the President,
"presents itself not only in an attitude of
loyalty and harmony, but in the persons of
representatives whose loyalty can not be
questioned under any existing Constitution
al or legal test."
The representatives of nearly one-third of
the States have not been consulted with ref
erence to the great questions of the day.
There has been no nationality surrounding
the present Congress. There has been no
intercourse between the representatives of
the two sections. producing mutual confi
dence and respect.
In the language of the distinguished Lieu
tenant General. "it is to be regretted that
at this time there cannot be i greater com
mingling between the citizens of the two
sections, and particularly of those intrusted
with the law-making power." This state
of things should be removed at once, and
forever. Therefore to preserve the Nation
al Union, to vindicate the sufficiency of our
admirable Constitution, to guard the States
from Eovert attempts to deprive them of
their true position in the Union, and to
brini together those who are unnaturally
severed, and for these great national pur
poses only, we cordially approve the call
for a National Union Convention, to be
held at the city of Philadelphia on the se
cond Tuesday, the 14th of August next, and
indorse the principles therein set forth.
We therefore respectfully but earnestly
urge upon our fellow citizens in each State,
l'rritory and Congressional District in the
United States, in the interest of union and
in a spirit of harmony, and with a direct re
ference to the principles contained in said
call, to act promptly in the selection of
moderate pad conservative men to represent
them in said' Convention, to the end that
all the States shall at once be restored to
their practical relations to the Union, the
Constitution be maintained, and peace
bless the whole country.
DRLUNAo NmasaxNc A rs T Heu.--The
Boston correspondent of the Chicago Times
writes as follows:
There is better reason for fleeing from
Boston this summer than ever before, in the
existence here of one of the most horrible
nuisances which the world can show. The
story is too long to be told in detail here;
suffice it to explain generally that the south
part of our city was built with no expecta
tion that the Bac.k Bay would ever be fill
ed up, and the sewers were all constructed
to empty their contents there, to be swept
into the ocean with every day's ebb tide.
But the project .f filling up and building
the Back Bay, and malking it the fashiona
ble quarter of the city was conceived, and
voted a noble one by general voice, It
has gone on year after year, until only a
little piece of water remains, and this, com
munication with the sea being cut off, is
covered with floating filth. State and city
authorities, and coiporatinns and private
citizens, are having a confused quarrel as
to who shall remedy the evil, and at whose
cost and in what manner it shall be done.
Meanwhile every traih on the Worcester
and Providence railroads, which cross each
other in the very centre of this sickening
mass of abomination, is obliged by law to
stop there to prevent collisions, and the
'isaegers have to hold their noses and
battle with their nausea for full two min
ates; and when tlhe wind i westerly the
fearfal stench is borne righ into the best
part of thecity, driving lople away from
the Common and Ptiblic Uarden, carrying
the seeds of disease into every house, and
putting us in a worse condition for a chol
era summer, probably, than any other city
on the continent. In the press and in pnr
vate conversation the voice of indignation
is everywhere heard, but whether any rem
.dyean be applied with suficeiet prompt
ness to abate the nuisance before the com
ing of atamn, is more than doubtful.
Mr. Davis on Dr. Oraven's Book.
A correspondent ofthe New York News,
writing from Richmond, says:'"Dr. Craven's
book, 'The Prison Life of Mr. Davis,' is at
tractingmuch attention here. I have good
reasons for believing that its publication
has seriously annoyed the distinguished
prisoner. Indeed, I have it from excellent
iathority that such is the fact. It is stated
that much of 'the incidental portiop of the
work-the conversations so ocrcumstantial
ly jotted down are of that classe,the publica
tion of which, however well intended by
the kind-hserted author, is calcalated to

lb athle dto the Metropolitan Record:
Dnaa 8a: rlnd the following in your
paper of May 19:
A Columbus, Miss., paper says that in
the recent decoration ofthesoldiers'_graves
near that city, no distinction was made be
tween the graves of Confedrate and Fede
ral soldiers.
I know that yoa came by this honestly;
but I must thifnk" a Columbus, Miss., pa
per " is mistaken ashout the matter; or if it
so occurred as a general .thing, or other
than perhaps a single Axceptional case, I
am mistaken in the character and taste of
the people of Columbns. It is inconsistent
with my good opinion of that people to be
lieve that a community which has contrib
uted so much to the Confederate cause, far
nished so many brave men and officers-the
community which is now engaged in the
nloble work of raising funds to remove from
the field of Gettyshure the remains of their
brave, lamented Barksdale to their own
midst, and erect a monument to his memo
ry-is guilty of the bad taste of decorating
alike the graves of those they honor with
those they despised in life. What honor
attaches to having been a Confederate sol
dier, if there is "no distinction made be
tween the grates of Confederate and Fede
ral soldiers ?" What honor to lBarkedale
to have been I the most noted brigadier
general in Lee's army," if his grove is to be
decorated alike with the grave of perhaps
the vilest horse-thief, house-burner, murder
er, plunderer and villain in the Yankee ar
my? The grave of the man who gave all
--property, time, service and life-for his
country, and the protection of his neigh
bors' rghts and possessions, is to receive
floral decorations exactly like the garlands
placed by the same hands on the grave of
the man who came to destroy all, to burn
hisproperty, pillage his house, and perhaps
inult his family If there i "no distinc
tion made" after death, why should there
have been any in life? " Rider and horse,
friend, foe, in one red burial blent," may
occur, but there should be an after tale to
tell which was friend and which was foe,
which was man and which was beast, .
As I understand it, honors shown the
dead in erection of monuments, decoration
of graves, and similar marks of respect for
the memory of the virtues of the deceased,
are designed not so much for the dead as
for the liviug, for the influence and effect
such marks of honor and distinction have
in nppulding the minds of the coming genu
rations to emulate the virtues we honor in
the dead. Such being the case. how are we
to reconcile to thqinnocent mind of the
child that looks de at such ceremonies.
wohich he is to honor, which to emulate;
which grave contains the sleeping dust of
his sire's friend or foe ; which contains man
or beast, when he sees all decorated tlike ?
And how shall we answer his child-like
questions when be asks, "Whose grave is
this ?" "It is the grave of a true and gal
lant Confederate soldier. who, prompted by
the high and holy purposes of lofty patriot
ism, gave his life in his country's causer
gallajtly fought and noely fell for his be
loved Confederacy. Add if e're tlh coon
try calls thee, child, go thou and do like
wise," answer the mourning mother, wife,
or sister, her soul glowing afresh wiltd e
fires that stirred it in the days of the Ton
federacy "And these, Whose are these ?"
asks the youthful patriot. " These ate the
graves of' Yankees,' as we call th? Federal
soldiers." "Muost I go and do like them
too ?" the enthusiastic child naturally asks.
"' Oh, no ; they fought your f hers, burnt
our houses, destroyed our' pwserty wher
ever they could find it, and in every possi
ble way, insulted women, stole or destroy
ed little children's clothes, stole for ' tro
phies' all our nice furniture, valuable books,
handsome pictares, fine carriages, silver
ware, and even the most ordinary articles
of kitchen furniture--enriched themselves
at the expense of the Southern people; and,
to impoverish us still iore, they indaued or
drove our servants away from their happy
homes, and often against their tearful en
treaties to be allowed to remain with us;
but, worse than a4, they mutdered our pris
oners of war, or erihelly punished them by
all manners Of devices of torture in pnrison,
suffered themb to die by the slow tortures of
starvation and cold-st.rred or frozen,
sometimes both, in a land that boasted of
unprecedented plenty, ofevery luxury. And
even here in Columbus they murdered our
Colonel Wm. Wade months after the close
of the war. "Then I wouldn't put pretty
flowers on their graves, like I put for the
good, brave ones-I know I wouldn't," the
child must naturally answer-and so must
human nature everywhere. I think there
are times when the "quality of mercy"
should be" strained. 1 know there-has
ever been in the South an ample share of
" charity" that "thinketh no evil," and the
latdiar has developed, or left unimpaired,
more of this Christian ¶uality than I had
thought a people so porsebuted could ever
possess; but, iotwithbetabding charity is
"above price" in its plhtece, there is such a
thing as charity misapplied. And in no
way could it be more injudiciously appro
priated than in the decoration by Southlern
hands of Yankee saldiera' grave--especially
at the time and place of deeoratiny the
graves of loved, honored and long-lamiented
Oonfederate soldiers, Commont. decency
forbids that any should desecrate the graves
of even the "vilest sinner" that "may re
turn ;" yet this simple instinct of humanity
does not lead as into the other atreme of
weaving floral decorations st oqsuch a
grave; and with that natural a which
possesses as in the presence of the dead,
however debased ib life, we may, and
should, pass the gravei or Federal soldiers
unhbonored- leaving the silent occupants
to God's mercy-while we bestow oar offer
ings on the graves of tjose we loved nand
now lament, making, at least, the " distinc
tion " of giving honor to whom honor is
due. Nothing less is expected of usnoth.
ing more could be required. If I under
stand it, this beautiful ceremony was inan
gurated far the sole pripose of distinction
-of distinguishing the Confederate "'sol
dier's grave, and so I receive it with sad
,nd grateful joy; but, if it is to become a
l.eveer-to equalize the best blood and chiv.
airy of the South, the un 4d herbes,
the bold soldiers of right, t itb1onor and
principle, with the soldiery ofte North,
then let as discard it at once, as a failure
of our pUrpose and a sacriie of honor. I
eincere hope, however, if this thing has
occurred any where in the South, it will be
received and corrected as a mistake ofchar
ity never again to be repeated, and that the
immortells eeremony will become a fixed
custom, or ceremonial of 4istnction, to be
observed in the South dlung as the word
' Confbderate" is retained .in the English
language-and on sajizsd da$y. I see some
of the papers have it the I5th of April,
while others have it thesl6th; whioh ig it?
The first appointmnaitI noticed was for the

This being the ease, whatever he may say
cooerning the intentions of the disorgani

made by him yeaterday, can ihrdly fail to -

refused to order an eleetion in compliance hs
with Juidge Howell's pronunneamiento, 0C
Mr. Cutler stated that .they had come to TI

they *re the snpre epewe'tin . Loui~ana,

feren If Governor Wells, he continued, in
does ct retnurnand issuanerite of election, sr
the Convention itself will meet next week P
and do so. If the Governor then fails to.
support us, after a fair chance has been
given him, his seat will be declared vacan )
and a Chief Magla~ rte selected4 from'
among the members of the Convention- b
probably I shall be the maUl ,:
A'quornm, Mr. Cutler continued, a sev. 12
entysix, and seventy-seven members have
signed a paper pledging themselves to as

bowie knives, or no bowle knives, and we' 0
shall do it.
It was suggested that from next week it
until the 3Sth inst. is less than the legal i
time for giving notice of an election-in e
fact, not sufficient space, for the write to,
reach certain pa of the State- Mr. Cot
ler replied: We don't care, although cour
iers and meqsengers are provided '~ready
carry them into every Parlsh; but we .
'shall meet any way.' It is urgent that we a
disenthrall tha Stata. a
The Speaket was asked if he had not
mistaken the word, and intended to say re
enthrallthe State.
Being asked what they would 1do for {
supply of money,:, r.i Cutler stated.that
they intended to stf both the tat4 lind

Anothed member of this f'-con ention,
on the street yesterday, remarked in the a
choice vernasular for which they l are a
famous, "that he did'nt know much about tl
the legaliity f the proposed meating, and
didn't care a d-i; butif the people ever

couldn't stop them from eventually carry

We have no idea that the very hot place
referred to-or rather its presiding-genius

power of more earthly character wil "have i
