THU hBIV&
Saturday night was “ confusion twice con
founded.” The uuterrlflcd gathered in their
strength, and we will giro them tho credit
of lung power inexhaustible. Tells, ho vis,
ecreams, cheers, groans for tho Tbibunc
office, for which we return thanks, hands
playing “Old John Brown,” evidently not
instructed as to tunes, and when Instructed
switching olf to ‘’Kingdom Coming,” and
letting their loyalty out of brazen mouths,
speeches of all sorts, from bold treason to
mQk-sud-water loyalty, lire work?,'runaway
horses, • pickpockets, eminent rrspecta
blllty In .'white waistcoat and huge
seals saying his speech, and long lank-Bnt
ternut from Southern Indiana spouting dis
loyalty, altogether made up a funny medley.
Go in gentlemen. Hare a good time, ifsirft
ml the nclfe yon please. Crack your cheeks
-with bellowing, butgire us a candidate and
have nothing lo fight against until you do.
Don’t waste your time grosningat the Tai*
a platform ns speedily as possible. We
swe for Us loyalty. That don't scare us
and don’t help your cause' any. ‘‘Sat up
your pins,” we have rolled up our sleeves'
and want to go in. Give us a man and a
platform to light against, and we’ll show
you the liveliest fight you ever saw.
* The Convection of pre-Adamite fossils,
headed by that undent and awful gentleman
■Amos Kendall, who knew Nofhtmd attended
to postal matters in Abraham’s time, met at
Bryan Hall, on Saturday, and nominated Geo.
B. McClellan for tbe Presidency. The side
show was eminently respectable, and merits
our meet dignified reverence. Butter, even
at the present high prices, would refuse to
melt ic their mouths, and we congratulate
the old gentlemen upon their successful de
livery of the representative of shades, v |
Grant, through Ids gallant subordinate,
Gen. Hancock, in utter disregard of the Chi
cago Convention, hoe been winning a splen
did victory. On Thursday the rebels at
tacked Gen. Hancock at Kearns 1 Station, to
loosen his hold nponthe Weldon railroad.
After a moat desperate battle they were re
pulsed with tearful loss, leaving their dead
and wounded in our hands. Averlll also has
harassed the Peace men by repulsingEarly’s
attempt to get over Into Maryland, at Wil
liamsport. Logan also takes a hard in cap
turing a line of rifle-jdU and some prisoners
before Atlanta.
Cot Hancock returned from Springfield
on Saturday, with the Intelligence thatthe
quota of Cook county will be In the vicinity
of 2,000. Now will our citizens make n final
and thorough effort, and fill up the quota,
that Cook county may honor ull calls of the
-Government, and be saved a draft? It can
be done, and let it he.

Influences to keep it up, under the influence
of Grant’s Important victory detailed In Sec
retary Sttnton’s dispatch. It opened on
Saturday ut 253, declined to 250#, advanced
to 251#, fell t0245#, advanced to 248#, and
closed at 247#.
There Is a report which nccis confirm--
tlon, that a commissioner from the State
Government of Georgia Is In Washington to
ascertain what basis may be secured In
which the State of Georgia, independent ol
the rest of the Confederacy, may comeback
Into the Union.
After VaHaudlgham's disloyal harangue on
Friday night. the crowd called upon Hon.
John Wentworth, who was a listener, for a
speech.' The Copperheads around the stand
supposed that he would speak in sympathy
with their views. On the other hand he
gave them a thorough Union speech, and ad
ministered a scathing rebuke to the disloyal
Vailacdlgbozn, exposirg his' fallacies and
pointirg out hU southern sympathies. Dur
ing his remarks an*attempt was made to
inttrropt him. He told the crowd they were
sot carrying out their doctrine of free
speech, and said his voles was stronger and
longer than theirs, and that ho couldn’t be
hissed down. He kept on and concluded
his speech, which will be found iu another
column.
Elsewhere wc print our usual Sunday
record of hours of service at the various
churchts in the city. Democrats, Copper
heads and peace etraugcrs.are Invited to take
their choice. They will find loyal preaching

Tlic l*cace Question.
(Special Dispatch to tbe Chicago Times,]
Washington, Aug, 23.
Much amuFcmenthas been c«used by tbe reports
.In New York ot the appointment of Peace com
missioners by tbe President. Nosuea commis
sioners have been appointed, end tbe Idea has been
abandoned. No advance* will be made at present
by tbe admiobtration tor tbe pnrpoee of securing
a suspension of hostilities, as it Is believed that
any such advances will be rejected by tbe rebel
government, and regarded as an evidence of weak
ness and want of confluence in 4 the Union cause.
At tbe same time there is rea-on to believe that
any proposition*, or commissioners properly ac
credited, which might be sent by the Confederate
authorities, looking to an armistice and a prospec
tive settlement ot tbe existing etffien ties, would
receive a bearing and favorable consideration.
The above la a fatal concession for the
Copperhead cause, coming directly from a
prominent Copperhead organ. The rebel
Government ‘•■will reject any such advan
ces,” that la measures for securing a suspen
sion ot hostilities, bat “there Is no reason
to believe that any propositions or commis
sioners properly accredited which might be
sent by tbe Coxtei)era.te authorities, look
ing to an armistice and a prospective settle -
ment of the existing difficulties, would receive
a hearing ar.d favorable ejiuidtrathn /*’ Mind,
this Is not a Republican paper, but from tbe
peace organ of the West, Now In
the free cf this, what becomes of
tbe constantly reiterated charges that
the Ac ministration will not listen to'
overtaxes for peace? and in view of this
statement thatlbo Federal Government will
cntcrtalnproposhls for peacc,bat that the reb
el authorities will not, mudc by a Copperhead
paper itself, we ask what is. to be done?
"What do the peace men wont done? Wc
liave asked this question repeatedly, and we
have never had an answer. Dare any indi.
lidnsl Copperhead or Copperhead paper an
swer? Until that time, there is no room for
argument, and so sense in talking about
peace. It Is twaddle unworthy of men pre
tending even to an ordinary share of common
intelligence.

Convention. .
Wcprinl the following extracts from an
article in tlie Old Guard, a Journal veil
known to “Democrat*,” and edited by C/
'Chauncey Burr, a bright and thlnlng peace
light—a man who Is a whole olive tree, her*
ilea and all, in the matter of peace. The
magazine Is the number for August, and the
article is entitled'‘Gen. McClellan’s Availa
bility Examined.” Woprtot It grails for the
•benefit of onr peace friends in itha
Convention aboutto assemble.: Barr
.in bis Introduction {fires McClellan the credit of
being an amiable gentleman and a good general (!)
but urges that he “does not possets the great and
peculiar statesmanship necessary -to bring'our
country out of this gulf of catastrophes.” : Be for
fiber says that ‘ McClellan's 1 nominatlea npou the
ground of availability “ would he a crime aa well
aa a folly.” Wt now proceed with our extracts
from the article: ‘' -'*
What McClellan Must Do —lf Gen. McClellan
is thechoiceot the Convention, and will frankly
■accept the nomination on a clearly defined plat
form of peace and Democratic truth,3*6 shall cer
tainly find no onre to eomplslturf him. We could
not hesitate to support him; bat we speak adrlsld
ly when'we say that nnt&sr be nor any other man
can recelre the support of the muses of 2the De
mocratic party on any other pis tform. 1
IS H'CLZLLAIi X XUUIOCILATt
We take it for-root'd* however, that the Cbtv
cago Convention will plant too f dimly on a plat;
form of Democratic principles. After, so doing, u
It Is wise and consistent, it will Dominate some
man of ability and statesmanahtp, who represents
those principles. --I* General McClellan that man ?
General McCltUan’a record, and the two or three'
speeches he has made, are in direct antagonism to
the ererlsstlngpiinclplceorthe Democracy.

Barr then refers feo the order of McClellan
to Banks, for the arrest of the Maryland Leg
islature, dated Bept, 12,-1861, and especially
to thefollowlog extract:'*

WAanmuTOH, Saturday, Aug. ST, 1661.
To Major General Dlx:
On Thcraday, General Hancock, who was sooth
of Beams 1 Station, was attacked several times da
ring the day, hnt repulsed the enemy every tlmf*.
At five and a half In the evening s combined as
sault was mede on his center and left, after
one of the most desperate battles of the war, ro
solled In the enemy withdrawing, leaving bU dead
and wounded on the He'd. Official devils are giv
en in dispatches from Generals Grant, Meade and
Honccck. We hold the Weldon Railroad.
In a dispatch da'cd 3 o’clock yesterday after-'
noon,-General Grant says: “Their loss of this
road seems to be a blow that the enemy cannot
“ stand. 1 think 1 do not overstate the enemy's
“loss in the lost two weeks at 10,090 killed and
M wounded. We lost heavily, bet mostly In cap.
■ M toted. 1 *
Grcaal Grant a’so make* the following report
tfhnmay morning: .
The enemy drove in Butler’s line of pickets.;
Tho guard soon rallied and drove the enemy back*
and re-established their lixie. We lost one killed
sixteen wounded and fourteen missing.- Two
commanding officers and thirty-nine men were
captnrcd'from the enemy,
(Signed) S. M. STANTON.
The following are official die patches from Gen
erals Grant, Meade and Hancock:
Ssth Amnr Co bps, Aug. 26.
The attack at about CSO p. m. was probably In
tended to be simultaneous by Wilcox In the canter
and Heath on tiie left. Tbe enemy formed In the
woods and placed their artillery in position and
opened a heavy canonsdlng, lasting 25 minutes
when they assaulted Miles 1 force. He resisted tel
‘ nacloosly, but the enemy broke bis left. Some of
Gibbon’s troops were bnrricd over to repair tbe
damage, and tne enemy ?golaed a slight foot-hold.
They soon attached the extreme left and drove
Gibbons division from hl> line. His men had
been much wearied iu rushing over to General
Miles and Bonks daring the repealed assaults*
Gen. Gibbons succeeded in forming a strong line
and the enemy however pressing on with great
enthusiasm, were checked by dismounted cavalry
under Gregg, which he handled handsomely.
Miles regained the best of his Intreochmcnts, dis
tinguishing himself. The work was done by such
small parties as could be rallied and formed by his
staff officers. Fighting was continuous till dark*
the enemy being held In check by artillery, dis
mounted cavalry and skirmishers.
At dark we withdrew for (he reasons stated.
Tbe chief of artillery reports that he lost about 250
horses. The enemy made no advance up to a late,
hour last holding aa far as could bo seen',
some of our captured guns with their skirmish
line. They must have suffered heavily. Uy own
loss, Including cavalry, will not exceed I,SOO or
fftOO. •
Captain Brownson, of my staff was mortally
wounded—dying during the night. Col. Walker Is
missing. ’ . ;
Thlp Is acknowledged to^ have been one o! tbo
most determined and desperate fights of tbe war,
resembling Spottoylvania in character, though tbe
numbers engaged give less, importance to it. A
few more good troops would have given a victory
. of considerable importance.
1 forward this morning prisoners from the field
'from Wilcox's aud Heath's divisions. Mij. Angel,
of my staff saw and conversed with two prisoners
of Mabone's division last night. Ido not find
them this morning. Bo said Mabone's division,
with tbe exception of one brigade, was there.
W. 8. Hancock.
The following is just received s
’ Btcos© Conrs, iStCO p. m., Aug. 9h—A safe
guard that was. left on the battle field remained
there until alter daylight this morning. At that
time tbe enemy had all disappeared, leaving their
dead on the field unburied. This shows how
.vcrely they were punltbcff acd, doubtless hearing
of the arrival of reinforcements, they leared re.
suits to-day If they remained.

PROGRESS OF SENTIMENT.
The McClellan men were not so buoyant on Sat.
nrday as they were on Friday; nor were they bo
bn'-ysnt on Friday aeon Thursday, In trath the
pertinacity and determination of the Peace men
are telling npon them. Had the Peace men tbe
money at their command which tho Policy men
boast o f , and really have, McClellan would bo no
where. A man of lor more talent and ability as a
statesman, viz: Pendleton, of Ohio, If he had half
the means at hla command that is wielded by Mo»
CleU*jn’s supporters, he wosld dletanee the latter
in the race. •In tact Little Mac la ran by tbe
“bloated aristocrats" ofthedemocrnUeparty. He
|B the candidate of the money-brokers of Wall
street and the great railroad corporation of Now
Tori; and New England. The democratic pir’y
used to tout In Jefferson and Madison's timer,
that it was tho poor man’s party. It denounced
banka and corporations bitterly, and unceastog'y.
Now, how Is the mlgh*y ialien ? It Is controlled
by Ac?uian Jew bankers, like Belmont, and cod*
fleb aristocrats and railway kings, like Dean Rich*
xnond. The glory bath departed. irom it. Never

Thu satellite of the shoddy anavocracv have no

Kadi an exhibition of political debanebtry was
never exhibited. Tbe question arires, howls the
candidate ever to repay bis snpporcra fur the
money ihey arc expensing fur him f If be only
bleeds the treasury in tbe proportion th it Ills
friends Wecc for him, tbe cooieqa-n:es to tbe coun
try will be fearful. Tbe peace men cooip'ainblturly
ol this debarchery of tho patty by tbe advocates of
. McClellan. At the same tune they ace in it a
mease cffurthering their ova ends and aro get
ting terms every day from the shoddy arUtozrats
favorable to their mends of theSontu. Thu utter
Indifference macilested by many of thiMcClclm
men as to whether their candidate la to ran on a
peace plarftxm, or any platform at all, L* a very bad
indication of tbe pablle conscience, Tbe
Democratic party, once so particular ua
repeated its platform, is now reduced
to a mere faction, apparently dependent upon the
breath ol one man (or Its existence. The McClel
lan men, per re, who are In a large majority oot-lde

Geo, B.' McClellan. Re is tho party.

It is tbe open sesame to the bcart of every genuine

Tbe peace men have not the armistice plank to
start on. This they consider as eqnlrolcnt to rec

war. Stop tho war for a month, aay they, and it
will never be resumed again. In this they are
honest. Thu armUtico plank la tho'plank for

will take care of tbe balance. Tbe proposition of

‘‘Tbo great suns of the Chicago Convention

Gov. Seymour first appeared, ond looked like v

was to tbo efllxt that he was going to Chicigo to
preserve the Union, restore the laws, send the

to their homes, stop the bloodshed which ravaged
the South, and let cur brethren in anus lookagila

excite no esrpnec, since the cextltmen cf the prr

good score. Even their martyr, Vallaadigbim,
cad cot the sudaclty to come tor word till fairly
draped forth by bis friends.
The McClellan men gathered In considerable
cumbers in the evening. It was evident that they
had detc nnioed on mssinr a grand edfart at ellect
itg nn imposing detnor Stratton—one which should
arc the opposition Into submission. ThU Is their
forte—the teadi/.g idea Itnpmsed upon them by
tfccir btlf-wethrrsa Ibe only chance qf susseas. It
remain* to he ascertained how far they ere able to
cccospllah the garlic™ object of their ambition.
-l I e demonstration was Intended to bo a mag
nificent one, end it succeeded In this: that if any
oce were In the dart a* to tbs result of the eon*
inn convent'on, tney threw hght on tbs subject.
The Court House railings, Inside the square were
sledded round with flics of thoMcCle'iaa gens*,
each one ecnn'icd with an oil lamp, the contents
or whvh might erccea the wheels of tbs presiden
tial car on its peas'ige to the White House. The
north section of the squire was fitted with what
waa 'ntccdcd to be an Imposing galaxy of light.
A huge gallows was erected, and there
on was twined coil on cml of gas pins,
with jcu forming tbo name ot McClellan, tfh
nounctnc that help “oar only hone,**and other
verbal tokens of abject eabmi*slon‘to the coming
one. Then the fireworks were admirably symholl

the raas jets, only the figures refused lo be
exhibited. The gas would not barn, and tbo no
terrified were forced to content themselves with
the aforesaid rockets, which, itwasobssrvcd, were
largely of the serpent kind, and filed the night air
with aery Images of the Copperhead. Tae failure
of the jets was, however, compensated by an ad
duloral supply of gas of the windy kind,
the RHaktng being resumed when it was fonod
thiit i fcclr light waa gone out In darknes-*—a truth
ful loreehadt wlng of their defeat in November.
The crcwd waa decidedly an enthusiastic one.
There was a continuous shooting kept op through
the whole time of the moenng. Questions were
answered before they were not. and the applause
cecercllr came In at the middle of the sentence.
Bat the audience was satisfied. That was a great
thing to be accomplished. Well it was that so /If.
te a thing should please them. Would that their
desires were always as easily satisoed.
It is singular that tauen as the crowd proless to
bate Abolitionism,' it coold cot set along wunoat
Abolition music. “John Brown’s body * was the
first tune ptajed by the band, and “ Kingdom Cots
lugll followed. W*? condole with them In the pov

Dr. Stevens, of N. T„ called the meeting to or
der. and said he bad tbe honor of introducing
.Mayor Sherman, who. woald preside over tho
muting, nod sased those in favor ol his nomina
tion to cay aye. The motion prevailed. [Some
times men arc chosen first, and nominated after,
wards.]
Mr. Sherman called tbe meeting to order, and In
trodnccJ General Leslie Coombs, who spoke sub
stantially as follows:
BTEECII OF GBMBBAL 000X119. /
I'd-<no Citisens cf Karth America : I hope fora
few momenta only to have your ai'eotlou. An old
roldkr a-ks this of yon ad. boys. I ask it in tho
name qi an old toldler, and I have a right to call
myself an old so diei. Eichtyews ago I hid the
honor of addressing yoa In this cl y. D-mg as
was then 000 ot your great loaders. [Cheers.)
• Uc spoke of tbe gnat progress that bad been*'
made since his firs* rbit. when Ibis country was
tided wi'fa lydlM.s.'ond of tbe marie rapidity with
which Chicago bed become agrcaimstropnis. He
raid he bad lived to too great changes, ta: tho tat
groit&d change was to see thetuad of brother
drawn against brother. Oar Southern
brethren, order the lead of a mid
ambition, aro now endeavoring to dissever this
Union. leaw long before It cimc the Inevitable
rernitof thcmadlanaticismoftbe North. I told
the people here eight years ago that civil war was
coming upon us. It bus come, I have se?n the be*
ginning* and I expect, to rce the end I shall live
to tee this strife ended, and the bonds ol fraternity
cementing us again. It can only be done by the
reunion of all opposed to this mail
administration, After the election of Lin
con I went to Washington and I
told him I would support him though I did not
vote for him. if be wonld be governed oy the Con
stitution. He said be would, bathe baa not been.
Two of my eons-in-law have been engaged in thU
war. I bare mrnlshed my fall supply ol zutnaud
means, laxntlreoof tuts war. We know noth
ing about tbe war here. Had yoa seen what I hive
seen yon wonld know something about it.
1 have held slaves, but eight yean ago 1 emanci
pated them. I would not allow any other man to
emancipate them for me. (Cheers.) I left my
family under the protection ot an emancipated
slave Thcro is a class of men who call as Cop
perheads, because we think the white man as
poed as the negro. (Laughter.) Docs anyone
doubt that despotism has taken charge ot tho
country ? Do we not see them undermining the
tower of the Temple of Liberty? Ido not come
here to advocate the claims or any but to
■peak against tbs despotism of any or all men.
As to myselfi I am an Old Liao Clay Whlsr. I
was lorn a Whig, and am eoiug to die a Whig.
ICbccn.) I never voted for a Democrat, bat if
yon nominate the right kind of a man, I aa go
ing to votoforhim. (Cheers.] I have been asked
if we will have an election in Kentucky. I have
told them yes. Are yon going to vote? I told
them yer, that I had a knife in my pocket, and
three score and ten years behind me. and that I
was going to vote; or die. [Load chcerd.l And
Kentucky will vote, and will give fifty thousand
majority. [Renewed cheers.l
fcpeakinp of tbe negro ho said: A negro will
work for half as n nch aa a white man can afford to,
-ind whenever there is any stnae, !f you don’t
watch him, yon will flndhtmlayingimt. [Cheers.]
We must have a restoration of thiega us they were.
Each man must be allowed to kiss his own wife,
but to other man’s wife. And each woman any
whip her own child. Bet no sun mast kiss
another man's wife, and no woman most whip any
other woman’s chila. 1 mean no Statemnst inter
fere aith the rights ot any other State. [Cheers.].
Bmcn or o. e. Fxnniss.
O. E. Pmlne was next lutrodaced and spoke as
follows : Wo aid not come hero to speak to men
by the acre, bat one would suppose that this was
our mission. V» r c have met hero to consider the
condition of oar cmntrr, many of ns from that
section divided by an imaginary line, knows as
Mason's and Dixon's line. We have come here to
consider whether wc have a coamry, and rights;
whetberwe on Hit np oarvolcct for constitution
al riehts. All parties are rallying tor a common
croc try. Tbequcstionlstobodetcrmlned wheth
er we are tocxercl-c our rights under martial law,
or at the point of Mjoutts. 1 think we
are to have free speech, a free press
and a free country alter the next
election. [Cheer?.] Wo wilt grind down all who
would trample upon oar rights. We will support
the Government, bnt we will not support Lincoln
end his administration. [Loud cheers. 1 Wo ere
colng to let them know that while *we submitted
to the suspension of the writ ofAataz* cirpui and
the nmzriirp of our presses, wc did it because wc
wtre told that the object was the restoration of
the Union. But wd have been deceived. Our ene
mies have unmasked themselves, and wc are going'
to take the government out of their hands. We
arc going to elect another man, and that man will
he Qforgcß. McClellan. [lmmense cheers. Whoa
he is elected we will go to our erring brethren
with the olive branch of peace In one hand and the
implements of warimho other and will propose to
take them back and give them all their Constitu
tional rights. [Loud Cheers.] We, the people of
Iholsoitb-arc coins to nctorl the banner which
has bventhe cloud by diyaiid the pillar ot lire by
n!ebt;nndwe will bar* a fair election ora free
fight. (Load Cheer?.; The noblest place (or a
man to die is when be dies for man. He wald they
were tol dtbat thtro was a cilals in the domocritic
party, but said the male was with the administra
tion party, (and that the shoddy contractors bad
better look to themselves. The mats Is with them.
Come up and pnf dr.wn the rebellion. rive oar
t cuuiry, and let slavery take care of itseX [Ap
plant C.J
Let cs say to these State*, come back with s'!
jeer rights, and not ray to them as Abraham tho I.
and Abraham the last [cheers] has said, tail
ynuean come back If yon will rive up your stave#.
[Cheers, Wehare been told that the aoathtnfd no
resources, that their soldiers are naked aue unfed.
It they fight so well without anything to eat or
wear, what in God s name will become of us if
they ever get anything to wear and eat. [Loud
Cbtcrs.i
Be said that Lincoln already felt insecure, and
that Mrs. Lincoln made him sleep on tnc hack side
of tee bed against the will, for fear he would he
gobbled np—[cheers]—but Mrs. Doris let Jeff,
sleep on the lore side and ran around loo*e.
[Laughter and renewed cheers l W*e o*k that the
people shall bow down to the will o! the people,
ana they have willed that George B. McClellan
shall be nominated and elected. (Immense cheer*.]
Then we believe, one by one, the stars will come
back npon our banner, and believe that that can
cera at Washington will be buried. .[Cheers]
VTe are going to come out here In Dlinota and an-,
furl onr banner.'and ask the people of Illinois to
' wipe out the stria of having helped elect Lincoln,
and consign "him to the shades of Springfield
* A (?rjr. Bamnso Nourox, of Texas, was the
next speaker. Be would only detain the meeting
for a few minutes, and In those few minutes he
would epeak of the man ot the people's choice, the
only naan wno to-day had any claim on the popu
lar heart—George B. McO.-eHau. (Cheers.] It
would have gratified hrm much npou any ordinary
occasion to address them upon the political issues
of the day, and especially > upon- that gravest o!
Quettfons, tne preservation of the American
Union and the termination of the present wicked
and ueholy war. Dot when hs looked around him
and saw so vast a mu titude collected out of regard -
■ for Gen. McClellan, be fell that ho was the man
ot their choice, and in their estimation better qual
ified than any other man to save this Republic. Be
would epeak in reference to that man who, if nom
inated by the Democratic, party, would be elected
when the time of election come round. [CLosrM
The speaker thin expressed his sorrow that he
was not able to vote in. his w»wn State from
which Le was a) present separated; and his belief
that, ss God was Us Jadgc, the election of George
B, McClellan would do more to restore the Union
and give peace to this coon fry. Be then went on
enlocirpjgthe virtues of the defunct General and
would-be Frteldent. who. he sold, would conduct
the affairs of the nation in a way consonant with
the prmdplee of Christian warfare; which was
mote than could be said of manyof tbosewho
had.eagles and stars put npon their shoulders.*
{Applsnte.l •
.. But he was here to tell them some of the frets
connected with this hell-born and damnable rebel-'
lion. Be mss in exile In eonscqnence of devotion'
to the tree principles of constitutional govern
ment. In the olden time wc abided by the laws
and regarded the constitution, bnt now they-had
become fanatical and disregarded the Injunctions
