MONDAY, FE MILIARY 10. M 1 B M g .. Ihe 1'rotren tl Hwyaltr Th ItErrÖrrötEtcnrsT'of 43o9ni m the em bodiment of New England egotism and Aboli tionism, and, like Ax AC ha Rais Klootz.is the ora tor, if not of the human, at least of the Puritanic, race. Ia one of his late politico-religious dis courses he had enunciated, (for this region of untry at least.) a new "notion" as to the om aipotenceof the President as our National Exec utiTe. " The parson says "the head of the nation is a tacrtd person," and that "lie ran trulj say we quote his very word? with Louis XIV: 'The State; it i Dishonor me. and you undermine the eouutry." This W frank and candid, and foreshadows the ulterior objects of those who are ruining the Gov ernment machine, and illustrates their idea or "loyalty to the Union." Unfortunately for the Doctor, his notion is not original, and can't there fore be patented. The doctrines of the divine right of kings and passive obedience, and that governments were instituted by Providence for the benefit of ruler and not of the ruled, had abler, though not more servile, advocates in the personsof Fillmek and J krraiTS in the days of the Stuarts in England; and whenever an attempt is made to enforce them here as a New England no tion, there will be found Hampdzxs and Stdnets to expose their fallacies, and brave and stalwart men to put down their defenders. The men who proclaim such sentiments have had their lota ca9t in the wrong country, and are nnflt to live under free or republican institutions. They are, therefore, more formidable to lovers of liberty in their own section, than to the men in arms in defense of their right to secede from the Union. . The fact is. politicians of the Doctor's school appear utterly incapable of understanding' the difference between the Administration and the Government; pot can they comprehend the ob vious truth, that every "loyal" American is in duty bound to scrutinize, with jealous care, the public acta of those they call upon to make and administer laws, and to deno.mce. with manly freedom, every dereliction of duty'or infraction of the great charter of their liberties, designed alike to limit the powers of the public servauU and to define the duties of the citizen. Every one has laughed at the exaggerated dig nity assumed br a constable in Missouri when collared and sti ikeu by a fractious prisoner. "For heaven's sake," said the functionary, "let me go. and don't resist; for although individually I am only Tom Howard, yet, as an officer of the State, recollect th:ii when you shake me, you shake the commonwealth." The officer was dis charging a sworn duty, which the President is not, when he assumes, a right to act fron, a higher law thin the Constitution. The Consta ble was therefore nearer right as to the dignity O his trut than the Boston rhetorician when he ascribes unlimited, omuipoteut power to the Na tional Executive. When Mr. Ltxcoi adheres to the Constitu tion, he should be invented' with the "sacred" character imputed to him by his parasites; but when he takes the Chicago pl.it form for his guide, and attempts to force his party prejudices and notion as the law of the land, he travels out of the record, and his opinions are entitled to no more respect in Washington than they were when he was cracking his jokes, as a lawyer, on the Springfield circuit in Illinois. TXanafaeturlnff Public sentiment In the Arnif. The Journal, of yesterday, contains a series of Indorsement of the Murfreesboro resolutions by the. Indiana regiments in the army vf the Cum berland. To say that jucli indorsements express he sentiment of the private soldiers the file of the array is all gammon. We do not suppose one soldier in twenty has read or lie ird read these resolutions, so as . to understand their import. Their approval, as represented, was a formality- that every army officer under stands and appreciates. We illustrate the way the vote, as it is railed, was taken in one regiment, and that will be a fair illustration of all. A sol dier writes the modus oerandi in his regiment, which wi in this wis;: The regiment was on dress parade, when the Adjutant, holding the American eiuign i:i his hand, said: "AH who are in favor of the Union as it was ani ot fighting un der thU flag of the Union will ttep forward." Every mm, of course, in the ranks, upon such an appeal, steppe I forward. Thi was c died an inducement of the resolutions, and it was so recorded. The discipline of the army is almost despotic of necessity. We all know with what facility names are gotteirto petitions and recom irendaiions, without the signers scarcely know ing or inquiring the character of the document. The same thing can be done wiih greater facility in an army, where inferior officers would, or could be, embarrassed if they thwarted the wishes or purposes of their superior. The surest critcrions of the real sentiment of the soldiers are their private letters, written in the freedom and confidence of friendship. We have seen hundreds of these letters, and they, with scarcely an exception, differ in to to from the spirit and iuteutf the Murfreesboro resolutions. And, when freed from the restraints of the ser vice and at full liberty to exprevt their honest convictions, it will be found that the private sol dier, uninfluenced by the desire for promotion and its rewards with no hope of eagle or stars to induce him to stoop at the footstool of power has but little feeling in common with the officer, ambitions of distinction, and whose tuiud is warped to secure coveted advancement by yield ing Lis owu convictions to the purposes of those who have the power to bestow the favor. The soldier in the army has no independence only in thought and conviction; but the soldier at home, released from hi contract with the Government, will be a different mao. lie will not only think independently, but will act as a freeman; and the same sentiment which prompt his friends and the people at home will surely influence and govern him.

The Grand Jury of the United States Court, composed mostly of Republican partisans, is en paged in the investigation of the character and objects of secret political organizations, said to exist in this Sute. Such inquiries are proper and legitimate when no other motive- is regardedfu the investigation but the interests of the Govern ment, and not for the purpose of advancing party ends or to gratify personal malevolence. If se cret political societies are inimical to our form of government and the spirit of our free institutions, the investigation of the subject by a Grand Jury i jhould be free from party prejudice and bias, and all such organizations should be alike condemned. Cut how is it in the present instance? Several members of the present Jury were doubtless members of the celebrated Know Nothing order. Did they think it the province of a Grand Jury entertaining opposite political sentiments and party affiliations to investigate the objects ofthat organization? The foreman of the present Jury well knows that there is a secret Republican po litical society extending all over the Sute. He understands its objects and has probably initiated members, and no man would be more rampant in condemning a partisan investigation of if. charact:r and purposes than he. lie may claim that the object of the U. C.'s, or the S. Ms, or the K. N. C.'s, are eminently patriotic, and so do tne members of every political order, but in al most every case such organizations are perverted from the original design in instituting them, and they become engines of oppression and evil. It is common rumor that Governor Mortos and other Republican leaders are urging the organization of Republican secret clubs throughout the" State, and that he is furnishing them with arms. Whit right has the Executive of a Sute, representing the entire people, to thus prostitute his position? Are not such matters eminently worthy the in vestigation of a Grand Jury, which in its official character should be beyond the reach of party influences or partisan sympathies, especially at a time like the present? There is a secret Repub lican political order which meets in a hall on Washington street in this citv, and the fact is probably known to some of the members of the Jury. If secret political societies are inimical to the Government, why does not the Grand Jury take cognizance of that one and the hundreds of similar organizations throughout the Plate, if in the discharge of their official trust its members are influenced solely by patriotic considerations and are looking with an eye single to the best inter est s of the country? It is a queer commentary upon the fairness of the investigations of the present Grand Jury, or we might with more pro priety say Grand Inquisition, when a portion of its members are active in finding some cause of complaint against Democrats for being identified with secret political orders, while the very men alio ire engaged in this prosecution are them. selves members of secret political societies, busy urging their organization and in initiating members. Theie is no surer way of bringing the Grand Jurr system into utter contempt when 'I can be prostituted to the basest of partisan and party purposes. Who will re spect any of its representations wheu partisan prejudices control its action, ami when it becomes a mere inquisition to punish political enemies, and to advance party schemes? It is a danger ous precedent to establish, and it may return to plague the inventors. The following, we are advised, is the obli gation of a Republican secret order, to which we call the a tt cm ion of the Jury. It will be noticed that its avowed object is to "resist schemes of secession in the Northwest," when every sensible man eil knows no such schemes have being, but they are made the apology for establishing a secret order, to be used solely for partisan pur poses hcr.ee the danger. Hypocrisy and fanati cisni are the most dangerous foes to both society and the Sute, and they are the basis of the orders which administer to its members, when initiated, the following obligation: I (repeating name and obligation) do solemnly swear that 1 will support and maintain the Con- rsiiiutiou of the United States, and the Constitu tion of the State of Indiana; that I will resist and oppose by everv means in my power all schemes of secession in the Northwest; that I will keen secret the obligation and woik of this order; that I mill protect each member of this league in his person, property and family; and that to he performance of this obligation i, with vou, do hereby irrevocably pledge my life, prop erly and sacred honor. . f From the South Bend Forum. 1 hey Lore Darknen," A very weak and veryTnean partisan effort all oter the country is at tins time being made by the dainty minions of the Lincoln Administration to brand Democratic Legislatures and Democrats everywhere with Hebel sympathy and secret po litical . combinations with treasonable objects. They re' urn again to their old partisan tactics. What they charge upon us, that they most indus triously practise Coming up recently from Indianapolis, where the heart of the Sute is beating with quickened pul.-e against public wrongs, aud where these dainties are su-pectcd of micIi double dealing, we tin I a dtr.nomtr tion of their perfi ly under our no-e at home. We find, in all local newspapers, an ndvertiseinent, by "the Central Secretary of the Strong Hand Association," at Chicago, to the effect that that new secret "brotherhood" is pre pared to establish "branches," that it proposes "to pre?ene," "to secure," aud'"to teach" cer tain things which men know intuitive! v, and cer tain rights which American citizens are all born with. The same advertisement is in this paper. It is tolerated there for pay it is not indorsed. The printer is not responsible for other people's extravagances in connection with the drugs and whisky wild snuff aud tobacco he may advertise. Th it advertisement comes from Republican ources; and in the accompanying "notice," printed also iu this paper last week with thi ad vertisement, it was boastingly stateu that the very name of tli s secret political band has refer ence "to an association extensively diffused through our armies." It is a political axiom with us, that whatever purposes to teach the principles of self-govern mtnt by pretentious "covenaiiie, oaths, emblems aud solemn ceremonies," hich are confe.-scoly uubt lor the light of day, should nowhere receive the countenance of good citizens. Looking no further thj to the acU of the Know Nothings, the Wide Awakes, the Sons of Malta, the T. C's , the U- C's., tic, men oi the Sute of Indiana find enough to lern mtr ite that secret political societies are unfriendly to the institutions of free government. And if their tendency is bid in civil lite, how certainly should they be deprecated in the armies of this C;iion? In view of the fact, then, that their tendency is unfriendly to good government in oidiuary times they must be pos'tively dangerous now; and would it not be well and wUe for the Legislature now iu session io supptess all such organizitious by posi tive law? If this is not done, they will continue iheir work and thry are not wanting all the de fense of money and official patronage, and the weight aud support of se.tish mid corrupt men of inllucnce in the church they will continue their begun work in the hands of that very same class of extremists which have instigated the greit Ite-. beliion. They have instigated a rebellion, ho.-e resource of utrengih, a two years' war conducted by tlieir counsels without restriction ot meu and mean, have only begun to develop. ' I he coun fcls of the Administration all the J,ime overriding the Judiciary and the Constitution, the people are beginning to fee that the rebellion cannot be sup pressed by a policv hostile to the rights of man; and they are crying out against its ac with a voice that will be heard by their ultimate Sute authorities. It will therefore be the fim work of our State Legislature to restore the violated laws, and to strengthen the fallen hands aud feeble knees of the Judiciary. And then they must promptly rebuke the corruptionista in high places, and all their friends and abettors tu every secret place, prominent among whom are these secret political organizations now so industriously seekin? favor with the honest and unwary 'citizen. The men that began this war ran neither rroecute it suc cessfully, nor bring it to any just and honorable termination. They ran do nothing now but ex tend the area of civil war. and the Legislatures of the people should put thera down by law at once aud everywhere. Where Are the Men lo Come rm The Hon. Thad. Stevexs, Chairman of ihe Ways and Mcaus and recognized leader of the Administration prty on the door of the House, stated in his place last week in closing the debate on the negro soldier bill that "You could not raLse in the who1eNonbrfi ftTiiiwPsirnd .rne.nidL: voluntary enlistment; and to enforce conscription ia out of the question." This was one argument ' used by him to obtain support for his bill. He further stated, and we quote from the Congress ional Globe: It i said that we hare already so large an armv that we have no need of more soldiers, and that this will cause a needless expense. It will require some three or four months to raise one hundred and fifty thousand. By this lime, about June, the time ol the two years' men of New York, and of the nine months' men. will expire. They will take from the army. I think, al least three hundred thousand men. How are you to sup ply th'ir place except ay colored soUliers? Hence, it we are to continue 'his war, we must call in the aid of Africans, slaves as well as free men. But gentlemen speak boastfully of the power of the white men of the North, and that wejiave a million men ic the field, and need no other aid. Sir, I have as high an opinion of the valor of Northern men as any man can have: but instead of having a million, do not beliro ice hat now half that number of effective soldiers. m Here we hare the authoriutive statement that the Federal strength to day is only 500.000; that in three months the period at the end of which Greelet wants to "make the best attainable peace" 300,000 will drop out of service; that white men can be neither induced nor forced to supply their places; and that the negro is the only hope. In this view of the case, as pre sented by Mr. Stktkms, people will anxiously inquire, where are the men to come from to sup port the 200,000 men we will have left in the field at the en of ninety days? Many sincerely and confidently look toward the negro, but when we remember that if eveiy able bodied colored man in the free Sutes were to be impressed immedi ately, the yield would not exceed 25.000. The N. Y. Times is evidently not very sanguine as to the men, but has more hopes as to the officers. It says: Officers to be had kor ax Africa Armt. The Washington correspondent of theTribune says that "it is the positive opinion of Senators, who judge from the greit nnniber of written applica tion made to themselves that an African army 1 00 ,000 strong could be officered trifft tchite men on a fortnight's notice! ' Wo do not doubt it. There has never been tho slightest difficulty in get'ing any number of officers for any service. Unless we are misinformed, we have in the army now twice an many officers as are required, upon the usual basis, by the number of men under their commands. The high pay, the comparative comfort, and the general attraction of the posi tion, combine to make it perfectly easy to get officers in any quantity. The real question to be answered is, can tee pit the men! H'Arre can we recruit an "African army 100,000 stroop? We must wad to see what progress is made i.i this ef fort before we ein pronounce a conclusive judgment as to its wisdom. Emancipation In Missouri. The following is a condensed reoort of the re in irks ol Seu.itor TiRriE, in the Senate, upon the emancipation olicy of the President, as de veloped in the emancipation scheme in Missouri and upon Executive usurpations generally: Mr. Turpie, (opp ). of Indiana, said that the formation of all countries under one Government would secure the balance of power and do a way with all those intticate foreign rotations about which there had been so much difficulty. But it had beeu so ordered thai the interest of the whole was best promoted by promoting the interests of individuals. He then proceeded lo say that geo graphical divisions, though they might be imagi nary, were just, distinct and iusurmoutiUble as any other line, as that between Canada and the United Sutes. Such were the lines which sepa rated the reserved rights of the States from the General Government, which existed with the Stales after the Union was toitneJ. The Union did not make the Sutes, but the latter made the Union, and had once been out of it. After dis cussion oi the reserved rights of Sutes and their mutual relations with the Federal Govern men;, Mr. Turpie contended that the value of the Union was not greater than tho rights ot the Sutes or the rights of the people. He proceeded to say that this bill was a direct bribe of the Federal Government to the rights of Missouri for ten mil lions of dollars in cash or twenty m lions of dol lars on credit. He regretted to hear tlie Senator Irom Missouri (Henderson) defend the bill on the grouni that the fidelity of his State tie, ended mi it, ntid that he did not know what the result would be in case of its defeat, but that he feared it. He (Mr. Turpie) did not believe that any leg-, isla i ion was iiecessary to keep the State of Mis souri in the Union. It seemed that the policy of this Administration had placed itself in a osition to need even the srmpathy of its political opjo nents. It had a great woik on its hands. Eng land, France, Horace Greeley and other great jHjtt-crs were to be conciliated. G irrison, Gid diii ., Gerrit Smith and others of the same stamp were to be pensioned. The Administration had lost the rou tidencecf the people. The President had lostthe confidence ol the people of the North and the South. He had become imbued with the fanatical principle of the New England school. If a war lor the Union meant paying for negroes out of the public treasury, lie (Mr. Turpie) was. not for it. If it meant supporting "contrabands, " he was not lor it. If it meant the absorption of the reserved rights of the Sutes, he was not for it. But if it u eant the restoration of the uatimnl au thority over every Uiot of territory, and tor the flag of our country lo wive over it, as it did ut Bunker Hill and Saratoga and Shiloh and Don elsot', he (Mr. Turpie) was for the war. The emancipation policy would not strengthen the Administration, but end in disaster, disgrace and tlele.it. The soldiers in the field had been unpaid for months; their families were bcggin for bread, and he for one would vote to pay the soldiers what wa most justly due ihem before he would vote mnney to pay lor negme in Missouri. .Mr. Tm pie then briefly traced the unanimity of the people front the time that traitorous South Caioliua fired on Fort Sumter down through the extra session of Congress, until the President and the Republican Senators commenced schemes for the purchasing of negroes, and abindoued their previous policy of a war lor the restoration of the Union. The President had abandoned all consti tutional obligations, and carried out measures which in France would belong to the Emperor, in England to the King, and in Russia to the Czir. Bathe (Mr. Turpie) would say that no American Czar would h ive any ferf west of the Alleghanies. Mr. Turpie then roceeded to speak of the elasticity of the so-called "war pow er," and add they h id been delegated to Provost Marshals aud other Administration satraps through every town In the country, with the ex ception of Seliua and Ober! in. where white and black Africans alone resided. In dwelling at some length on the result of the nets of the "war power," mrb a I'.iIms imprisonment, interlei ing with the freedom of the press, ice, Mr. Turpie spoke eloquently of the devotion of Indiana to the Union, and declared that if the abolition schemes of the Administration were abandoned the people would rush forth again in this war like those under Peter the Hermit for the rescue of the sepulcher of our Savior The sons of Indiana have fallen in every bat tle, from Fort Donelsnn to the Rappahannock. Two days alter the brilliant victory at Fort Don elson the 'resident sent a message to Congress, not congratulating the country that Tennessee hid been redeemed, but recommending Congress to aid in the abolishment of slavery in the bor der States. The President ued the word "bol is'imeut" in hi. message, for "abolition" would have caused it to fill stillborn to the ground. Mr. Turpie then contended that the cause of there bein two partie now was from the issue which hid. been rniseM Uy the Republicans. They had diverted the true object, of the war to Abolition; but if they wished lo put down this rebellion, hey must ab union the purchasing of negroes, defeat this bill, and return to their constitutional obligations.

Special Correspondence of the Chicago Time. J Washington. February 7. The news from Charleston is ominous, and the complications arising from the raising of the blockade there may have the enect oi bringing the war lo an abrupt termination. If the facts are as alleged that our entire blockading fleet was driven off and dispersed, and that the for eign Consuls re.-ident at Charleston were out to sea in a steamer, and proceeded five miles beyond the usual anchorage of the blockading vessels, without seeing one of them if these facts are es tablished, they constitute a complete raising of the blockade, according to ail writers on inter national law. Let it be remembered, in addi tion, that a fcteamer was immediately dispatched from Charleston to Nassau, bearing the intelli gence of these facts in the form of an official pa per from the Confederate Secretary of State. The facts, thus officially promulgated, will be published to the world. The sixtv days' notice of the re-esUbli.-hmei!t of the blockade, impera lively required by the rules of international law, will hare to be given by our Government; ana, in the meantime, the port of Charleston is opeu to the coromeice of the world. II, during the sixty days, the vessels of foreign nations are captuied by our blockading fleet. their capture will anonl to trance ana England a casus belli which they will not be slow to em brace. This is the view taken of the subject by atl foreign diplomatists here; and the New York Herald says: "If this were so. it would naturally alter the character and probable duration ot the war. Two months' unobstructed commercial intercourse with Europe would place the South, both in re card to finances and war supplies, in a position infinitely stronger than that which it occupies at present. It would infuse fresh life and vigor into its military and naval operations, itul render it, with its united sentiment, impossible to con oner." A strong pressure is now being brought to bear upon the President to induce him to send 7a,UlMJ troops and a strong naval force, including several of the lareest iron-clad vessels, to Texas. It is very true that there is nothing to be gained iu I exas, ami that nothing can be gained there uu til the Mississippi is opened. But the friends of many of our Grner.ils are here, all clamoring for "separate commands for their menus, and, as some ol them are supported by the radicals, there is a trons probability that I exas will be created into a "Mililarv Department, and some mush room General, like Carl Schurz, appointed to command it. Then 75,000 of our best troops will be drawn from the Army of the Potomac, or irom some other army where their presence is needed, and will be sent dow u to 1 exas in rotten transports At the same lime, a fleet of iron clad steamers, w hich could be profiubly employed in the siege oi Chat lesion or b ivaimxh, or at least in the blockade of those places, will be sent down to Galveston. It is not at all likely that such an expedition, ten I to 1 exas, will be sue cessful But, even if it should be. of what avail would it be? The possession of Galvestion, or even of the whole of Texas, would not be of the smallest particle f use to us, as Ions; as Riclw mond remains untouched as long as Charleston, Sivannah, Mobile mid the Mississippi Riter re main in the possession of the enemy. But an ex pedition to Texas would take away Irom our army at the Last so many troops ih it those Ic: t would be useless and would tako awav from our navy so many iron clad vessels that those lei t on the Atlantic coast would he powerless. Perhaps thi.a ia what Mr. Lincoln, Mr. Halleck and Mr. We'lrs desire. It certainly seems so. In two. of my recent letters I spoke of the probabilities licit existed of the steedv termiua tion of the war. These probabilities would have become rcitain'ics bv this time, if it was not lor the influence w ield d over the President und over Congress bv that faction in the radical camp whose ha tied to the South overpowers iu their minds all other considerations. I know not how many other factions there are in the "Republi can" part; but these two are stronglv m irked Firtt The faction led by Horace Greeley, ho are tiitd of the war; who despair of being able io bring it to a successful termination; who fear, as Horace expressed it, "that their armies will con quer our.-;" who are determined lo have "no union with slaveholders;" who dread nothing no mu - as a reconstruction of the Union as it was: and who, in order to itrert that calamity (!), are moving heaven and earth to bring about a separa tion and an acknowledgment of the independence of the Southern Codleoeracy. L'p to a lew days ago, i here was evcrv reison to believe, and it was generally understood and believed here, tint this faction had succeeded in bringing the President over to their views, and that he cordially indorsed them. Horace had been here, accompanied by the notorious en. loll Frumps, hobnobbing with the President, and boasting of his happy accord with the Administration. And, indeed, he had cu-e to boast. Hcjiad ordered the President t i-sue his fin incip.i tion proclam ition of September 22, and the Pi esideut had obeyed. At his com inand, too, ih President had issued his emanci pation proclamation of Januarv 1st He had commanded the President to authorize negro troops to be raised in Massachusetts, and the President had obeyed, and caused his Secre'nrv of W ar to issue the order to Gov. Andrew accord ingly. He lud com m inded the President to order negro soldiers to lie employed on the coast ot South Carolina, and tney had been so em p'oyed in compliance itli h;s order. Therefore, when he told the President the war must be stopped on the 1st of May, and that he must then recogii'ze the South as an indfendeiit nation, it was natural to suppose Unit the President would obey with the same docility nn heretofore. But, it seems. Abraham kicka against the prick, nl thou-di it is hard for him to do so There is another faction in the Republican canir. n unelv: Second The fiction led by Lovepy.

This atrocious purpose was Iril !!y and shame fully avowed by one of tlieai. a lew days ago. on the fli-.i- of Congress. "These wrenches," he said, spe iking of the S nithei-ii people, "must be exterminated; they must l?sept IVoip the face of ihe eatih, which they pollute." The-e men have sagacity enough to sec, how ever, tint the war must stop unless our Govern ment ia complete!;. Mibverted and converted into a despoii.m. They hü ve determined, therefore, to Mihvett the Guvernneiit, and convert it v'ulu ally into au absolute monarchy, in the manner indicated in my letu-r of Feb 6. Mr. Stevens openly staled, in the House of Representatives, a few das ago, tii.it we only hai e 5'Jl),000 troop, and lint', of these, the lime ol 300,000 will ex pire in May. This statement, made by one of the lenders ol the House, will give great comfort to the enemy; and, taken in connection with Mr. Gi eeltn's declaration "that.if the Rebels holdout till May, we will have to ubindon the war," it w ill inline new lile into the Rebels, and will lead them to use evei" exertion iu order to "hold out" till M IV. But it seems now that this faction of the radi cial party have no idea of stopping the war even iu II iy, ami that their "ucvro soldiers bill" is only one oT their expedients for -carrying on the wr. They have three other expedients for per petuating the contest, inilil the Southern people are completely exterminate!,- namely: the bill to empower the President to bo'.ih the habeas cor pus, the bill for placing all the militia of nil the Sutes under the orders of the President; mid the Knaiicii-I pcheuie ol Mr. Chase. If these four measures pass Congress, it will tive Mr. Lincoln the power to carry on the war till next December; the Government w ill be com plctely subverted; the Constitution will be abol ished; no man 'a person will be Secure from im prisonment, aud the laws and Courts will be pow erless to prevent the cit zens of tiny State from being dragco from their homes and forced into the army, to fcght side by side with uegroes. When Cot gtess has become so debased, so sunk in subservience to the dictates of blind fanati cism, so corrupt as thus to take away the rights and liberties of the people, is it not time lor some Cromwell to dissolve them and thus save the Constitution?

(From the Cincinnati Enquirer Another ;encrul Lends Himself General Itotecraiikt Letter toCar er nor Tod. We have beeu pleased with the success which has marked ilia military career of our oid friend nd lellow citizen. General Kosecraiis, and grati fied at tiie apparently well deserved repuution which he has achieved. We have looked upon him as one who, when he entered the army, ju diciously laid down the politician and determined to devote himself exclusively to ihe performance of the important duties which appertain to a mil itary command. We were aware that, since his entry into the armv, the political opinions of Gen. Rosecrans had undergone a change, and that, iu his private conversations, he was wont to indulge in expres.-ions such as are only heard l.oni the lips ol Abolitionists of the most radical stripe; but this did no' diminish our admiration - for the brave and persevering soldier; nor did it occur to us that he was a man likely, from his camp in the enemy's country, to be willing to lend Ins aid to the schemes ot any patty or bodv of politicians at home. Our surprise, therefore, at reading a letter from General Gosecrans to Governor Tod, evidently written for publication and party effect a copy of which will be found iu another column was extreme. It is not only a party letter, but one of unusual bitterness. It is not only bitter, but virtuperative. Iu perusing it we do not teem to be reading the production of a General who. by worthily bearing vast responsibilities, and fairly achieving great succes.-es, has acquired dignity ai d weight of character aud a euse of moral worth; but the production of an insignificant and disappointed party politician. We call attention to its phraseology, none of which we shall repro duce iu this article, to bear us out in our re marks. General Rosecrans has lent himself.- We un derstand the inducement. We see, from other hands, the evidence of the general tampering with the officers of the army, carried on by factious politicians here at home A man like him, or like what we supposed him lo be, should have seen the base uses to which he was sought to be put, and returned a stern rebuke to his tempters. That he did not do so, we regret more than we can express. The papers of the Abolition party, of course, will make much of this small item of capiul, careless how much its author will suffer in the eyes of the temperate and the judicious; while to us it is only the evidence that another man has fallen. The letter Joes not speak the General the broad and capacious, the cool and balanced intellect suited to the commander of armies; and lime will probably not be long in determining whether the successes which have fallen to his lot are due to accident, or to a force of character, which fails to manifest itself in his most disrep utable epistle In a path that is strewed with the bones of so many we had hoped that General Rosecrans would not venture; aud in obset viiif his entry and his fall, w hile we have no right to refrain from censure, feelings of pity struggle with the sense of the dutv to condemn. The following is the letter from General Rose crans referred to by the Enquirer: Headquarters Dtr'r vr the Cim bkrland.) M iirfi resboro, Tenn., Feb. 3, ltd. To the Honorable the General Aesembly of the State of Ohio:. The resolution of thanks, passed by your hon orable body, to th Army of the Cumberland, its Commanding General and hN staff, his been duly received and published to the troops of this command. On behalf of all, I return you our iieatt:elt thanks. This is indeed a war for the Constitution and the laws; nay. for national existence against hose who have despise! our honest friendship, deceived our first hope, and driven us to defend our country hikI our homes. Hy foul mid willful slanders on our motive, persistently repeitcd. they hae arrayed against ns our own fellow cit izens, bound to us by ihe triple lies of consan guinity, geographical position and commercial interest. ' let no man among us be bas enough to forget this, or fool enough to trust an oligarchy of trai tors to their friends, to civil liberty and human freedom. Voluntary exiles from home, and friends for ihe defense of all. we long for the time when penile peace hall ngiiu spread her wings over our laud, but we know no such blessing is pos sible w hile ihe unjust and arbitrary power of the Rebel leaders confront and threaten us. Crafty as the fox, cruel as the liger. they cry "No coercion." while preparing to strike us. liully-hke, they proposed to fight u, because they said they could whip five to one; and now, when driven back, they w hine out, "No invasion." and promise the West permission to navigate tl.e Mississippi, if we will be "good boys," and do as ihey bid us. Wherever they have the power they drive before them into their ranks the Southern people, mid they would "also drive us. Trust them tint; were they able, they would invade and destroy u without mercy. Absolutely assured ol these things, I am annze l that any one could think of peace on any terms. He w ho eutei tains the sentiment is fit only to be a slave: he who utters it at this lime is, moreover, a traitor to his country, who doerve the scorn and con'empt of all honorable meu. When the power of the un scrupulous Rebel leaders is removed, and the people are free to consider mid act for their ow n inteiests, which are common with ours, under this Government, there will be no great difficulty in fraternization. Between our tastes and social life there are fewer differences than between those ot the eop!e of the northern and southern prov inces of England and Ireland. Hoping the time may jeedily com'e when, the power of the pcifidio'j and cruel tyrants of this rebellion having been overthrown, a peice may be laid on the broad foundation of national unity and eqii i! justice to ail under the Constitution and law, 1 remain your fellow citizen, W.

He could not hive been elected if he had been a Northerner. The reason why your Senator was rejected was because he was thought to be a Northerner a great mistake Applause aud laughter. J "I tell you we have a President the result of Illinois politics. We have an Administration that means to hand you over to the next Presi dential election, ami let that decide the question, hoping that it will result in a triumph of li e Democratic party, who well turn the country over iuto the hands of the Southern slaveholding aris tocracy. We have a Senate th.it. with only tweiity-niuc days before it, counting Sunday, dare not tell w hat they know of the President's Cabinet wheu the perpetuit v of this country is at stake." . Such is. the gratitude of Abolitionism. In obedience to its bid liurMr. Lincoln lias nearly destroyed the couutiy, has lust ihe confidence of a n ijoiily ol the people, and is pursuing a po icy w hich has aroused a fearful agitation at the North. Yet all the return he gels from the meu w ho hive ruined him is kicks aud cuffs. We me glad of it. If he had possessed cour age aud firmness he would hive relied in perfect security Uion the cous-ii vaiiva masses of the country. Now he is distrusted by every one and abjured In the mouth of the arch Abolition dem agoMie Will he accept the experience and actipm it? Will he arouse like a Simpson, and strike these agitators and traitors from his Dalh? Will he even now join the ranks of the real Union men of ihe couulry, or will he grope on with vascil latiug steps, manacled by fanaticism and un nerved by the consciousness that he is not doing his duty to the country? He can never satisfy the Abolitionists. Phillips himself, if President to-morrow, would fail to satisfy thera. No man can execute impossible ideas. Mr. Lincoln may lick the dust from the feet of the Abolitionists, but will receive neither grati tude nor praise, for whoever attempts to execute their policy mortifies and enrages them by evinc ing its stupidity aud wickedness.

That the proclamation of Abraham Lincoln. of the 1st of January, ltC'l, pretending to liber ate the slave of the South, and inviting them to servile indirection aud deeds of a most inhuman and hellish character, is a most palpable usurpa tion of Executive power, a disgrace to the age in which we live, and a burning shame upon the fair name our nation Ins hitherto boine, and should bring down upon it the execrations of mankind, and consign its author to well meri'ed oblivion and eternal infamy. 3. 1 hat ihe PcnTx-racy are now, as they ever have been, of t'ir linn belief that the war, il per sisted in.i-disiit.i i t teii.ai ant! final separation, that the Union of our lathers was a Union of con cession mid compromise, iiid must lie so erpet uated; and tint we rojueM our Represent at i es, both in the Slate Legislature and Congress, io use all honor-able means to proem e a cessation of hostilities for such a period of time as will give the people North and imli an opportunity to meet in Convent ion and if possible settle our uu happy national diflicu'tics. 4.

Tnat all ques'ion and doubts as to the ob ject for which ihe war is being waed, having been removed by tl.e Emancipation Proclamation of Abraham U M-o!n, and by the dismissal, from time to ti-i e. of conservative Generals, and ap pointing in their steid men of radical Abolition proclivities, we hereby declare our opposition to the further prosecution of the war as it is now being waged; that we are not in favor of lutuisu lug the pre-enl Administration another man, gun, or dollar or such a hellish, uiu luisiian crusade. ,C.
