every opportunity to test his merits, committed
thi most Important military duty into his
hands. And we hare no evidence yet that
he Las failed, or that the movement he has made
will not hasten the object in view. We have
heard prominent Republicans question not only
his ability for the task he has undertaken, but
even his patriotism. If we can not place confi

life and reputation in behalf of their country, we
certainly can not in the staj-at home patriots

with the acts of those who are laboring to pre

All those who oppose confiscation are rebels

know this, for we read it in every radical Repub

Under the law passed st this scion. none of
these people who" oppose confiscation can ever
hold office. We know this, for we read that in

pers. Hon. Jacob Collames, Republican Sena
tor from Vermont, L a rebel, as is proved by his
speech in the Senate. He said of the leaders:
These men have established a de facto govern
ment over that people. If a man finds himself
in a de facto government, which he cannot resist,
and has no power to control, what are the limits
and measures of his obligations? It requires a
brave man to say that he will wnr upon it, be
caus he thinks it is a usurpation. It would be a
bold man who should say now, -'the United States
made a rebellion against Enghiid, au all the
present power you have, National and State, is
itself a usurpation; I do not owe it any obedi
euce, and I will not obey it." How idle it would
be for an individual, a weak man, to talk in that
Jut so is it with the people in these States.
However loyal their feelings, a Government de
facto is over them; they can not get away; they
have nowhere to go; they have nothing to go with.
What would you have a mn thereto do? What
has this nation a right to demand of him? What
right have we to demand of these people loyalty,
allegiance and obedience to this Government, and
to war on the Government de facto which is es
tablished over them, when we do not relieve them,
furnish them with arms, disperse the armies
that are there, or disarm the men who are
their usurpers, but leave them in that condi
tion? Mr. President, when I look at things in this
light, it seems to rre it is a very questionable
rjolicy, and tili more questionable ethics, for i:s
io sit here day after day, befoie relieving tint
eoj le, and while they are thus trodden on, ma
king laws by which we declare that they have
taken their States out of the Union and anni
hilated them, that whatever characters they
hold under their laws are gone, to unhouse
them, strip them and confiscate their property,
taking advantage of their absence when they
are not represented here, and have no power to
do otherwise. It may uit the notions of equity
and rieht of some, but to my mind it looks
more like taking counsel fiora our resentments
than from our judgments.
A llrbnke to Abolition!! In Con
Hon. Hoback Mayvikd, of Tennessee, one of
the Union members from that State in theHuuse

speech in that body, delivered by the Hun. Mr.
Sedgwick, of Xe York. He said:
I shall be erv much gratified if the speech
just made by tint gentleman does not find its

We hold these truths to be self eviJent: that
all men are created equal; that they are endowed
by their Creator vith certain inalienable rights;
that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit
of happine. That to necure thee rights, gov
ernments are instituted among men, deriving
their just powers from the contest of the gov
erned; and that, whenever any form of govern
ment becomes destructive of these ends, it is the
right of the people to alter or abolish il, and to
institute new goternment, laying its foundation
on och principles, and organizing its power in
such form as to them shall seem most likely to
effect their safety and happiness. Prudence, in
deed, will dictate that governments, long estab
lished, abould not be changed for light and tran
sient causes; and, accordingly, all experience hath
shown, that mankind are more disposed to suffer,
while evils are sufferable, than to right them
selves by abolishing the forms to which they are
accustomed. Rut when a long train of abuses
and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same
object, evince a design to reduce them under ab
solute despotism, it is their right, it is their duty,
to throw ofT such government, and to provide
new guards for their future security. Such has
been the patient sufferance of the colonies, and
such is uow the necessity which constrains them
to alter their former systems of government.

An I nclinnged Tlieme.
The war is on all sides admitted to be an evil,
of all evils the most horrifying which these Ke
publics ever witnessed; and it may be safely
asserted that if any one great man could be
found able and willing to arrest the evil, he
would stand in the hearts and history of the
country on a platform equal in altitude to that of
Washington. It is true that all human annals
from the days of the first Brutus to the present,
preach the plain path to peace and warn by innu
merable examples against the greatest obstacle
to that divine blessing.
A war waged for the acquisition of some de
bateable land, commercial advantage, or balance
of Hi wer is easily ended, because it is a mere
coutest of armies, born of ill logic or political
strategies. The heart of the belligerent pulsates
not in accordance with its every movement.
Domestic peace, internal trade, family ties, are
uninterfcred with; and, the army whipped, peace
is e sily made!
A war waged in support and in resistance of
revolution is seldom short, r or eight centuries
the Sierras of Spain saw the continued fight
between the invader and invaded. Each gene
ration bequeathed its national vendetta to its
successor, the child played in his cradle with
the arms of his guerrilla father and was nightly
taught by his mother to pray to God and Sant
Iago for early strength to wield them iu the
nationally hereditary cause. Europe, Asia and
Africa, aye, and America, afford numerous ex
amples of wars of retaliation; and their pecu
liarities of bitterness, continuity and desolation
are easily traceable to the harrowing aud unnec
essary diverting of the contest from the armies in
the field to the civilivns of the country. The
moment the war reaches the civilian, harrowing
his sense of right and wrong, exposing his liberty
and propeity lor the mere expression of opinion,
that moment is infused into hitn an intensity of
hostility which spreads from the man himself to
all w ho bear his name, or cl im consanguinity
with him. Then it is that Maids of Siragossa
stind by the cannons of resistance, then it is that
wives string their husband's bows, and children
spit in scorn upon their father's foes. Then
springs up the true spirit of sacrifice to hatred.
Armies become secondary in such a contest, the
people in chief take it up; signalize their desper
ate adoption by a Sicilian Vespers or a St. Bar
tholomew, and continue it to extermination or
success, generally to the latter.
Oppression is the mother of resistance-. The
king of Britain put his foot down and liberated
the colonies he would oppress. The king of
Britain conciliated Canada, and now Britain could
not kick Canada from her allegiance to the House
Confine a war to the armies in the field, its du
ration must be limited. During its continuance,
let the civilians of either belligeraut be oppressed
in conscience, liberty or goods, and the war of
armies turns into a war of peoples, gradually in
tensified in spirit till it becomes savage and quar
lerless, und the motto of the Catalan is revived
and adopted, "War to the knife!"
With the lessons of the past before them we
feel satisfied that the Federal Government, as its
armies advance and occupy, will refrain from the
adoption of any policy which would tend to drive
the civilian to the field, that it will remember
that if the reconsiruction of the Union is indeed
their object, that object can only be accomplished
by the resuirectiou of the fraternal feeling tha.
created it. The Union was not built by bayonets
neither can its ruins be once more wrought into
the old plan by the sword.
Here in Memphis we saw the effects of a policy
of conciliation, which resumed and persisted iu,
would do mote to 'firing back Tennessee" than
co aid any amount of systematic severity. The
surrounding country may be wooed back to its
old relations with the city, but cau not be driven
to their resumption. Severity m ty secure p-is
site obedience wi hin the limits ot a military
post, but it also frightens Irom it all who can es
cape it, and iu lieu of inviting to peace provokes,
to war men who from their past life and avoca
tions have ever sought the former and deprecated
the latter. We deprecate all harsh me inures from
the soldier ti the civilian, as tending inevitably
to prolong this unnatural war to a period indefinite
ly remote in the future, and certain to defeat the
purposes for which it has been waged. Push th:s
war upon the civilian by the nvhtary power of
the country, and we h i!l have estahUshel a sys

Yesterday, during the excitement follow ing ihe

puticuhr enemies of Gen. McClelhu betrayed
their bitterness yery decidedly. Exrited groups
collected at every comer. In front of this olh e,
a very large crowd collected, anxiou to mscct
tain "the new. An excited controversy soon
sprung up. In an animated con terpat ion between
Messrs. Milton S. Patrick and B. F. Haddutk.
the former expressed hirnvlf very freely and un
reservedly against McClellan. Mr. liadduck re
joined warmly. Mr. Patrick, as a clincher, then
declared that within a very short period, "Secre
tary Stanton had told Mr. John II. Dunham that
McClellan was the greatest traitor In the North,
and that all the material information obtained by
the rebels of Federal movomcntj, was furnished
them by McClellan 's family."
Mr. Patrick is a well known citizen of Chicago,
a mtn of strong political prejudices it may be,
but still so far above suspicion that we dare not
question his word without further evidence. He
asserted the fact without any equivocation or
reservation that Secretary Stanton had told Mr.
Dunham that McClellan was a traitor. Mr. Pat
rick is of course only responsible for the story as
it comes from or through Mr. Dunham. Mr.
Dunham is a responsible and highly respectable
merchant of this city, lately Pres. dent of a bank,
and we do not believe that he would state that
Stanton had accused McClellan of treason unless
he was sure of the fact. Now, if Mr. Dunham
did not hear Mr. Suntou say that McClellan was
a traitor let him say so. The charge has been
made publicly on the streets, and Mr. Dunham
has been named as the party to whom the Secre
tary unbosomed himself. If the story is false,
justice to the Secretary of War as well as to
McClellan requires that it should be piomptly
branded as falsehood. If true, and the Secretary
of War did sav thtt McClellan was a traitor,
then the Secretary of War is himself a criminal
by allowing a traitor to have the command of the
army. Let the facts come out. A Y.lltruld.
General Untier und tlie .rgro.
It appears that General Butler has written to
Washington for specific instructions about runa
way negroes coming to his camp. All the in
structions that are needed may be dictated by
ordinary common sense, aud it is totally unnec
essary to ask the President cr Secretary of War
any questions on the subject. The simple course
to be pursued is to do nothing, and just to act as
if the fugitives were so man idle white vaga
bonds. If any worthless, lazy negroes think
proper to run away from their master, who is
bound to support them, is thir support to fall
upon the Government? If they want to be free,
let thern go and work for a living. The army
h is nothing to do with thern and ou:ht not to
have. Suppose a countless multitude of South
em white men, women and children should come
to the lines of our army, is it the business of the
army to take charge of them, feed, clothe and
defend thern, and provide them with transporta
tion from place to place. The thing is absurd
on the face of it. If the army could not embar
rass itself with white vagrants, how much less
can it afford to become encumbered with the same
class of blacks a more helpless race. Fre
quently it is sis much as the army enn do to feed
and take care of itself. The course of General
Phelps in inviting runaway negroes to his camp
is therefore clearly wronjj, and deserves tobe
moie severely reprimanded than the proclamation
of General Hunter. The business ot the army is
to fight and defeat the rebels in the field, and let
the negro alone. When the insurgent armies are
whipped, then the question of the disposal of the
negro may be in order; now it it is clearly out of
order, and is only calculated to embarrass the
Government and the operations of the army,
while it cannot be attended with the slightest
practical good effect. jV. Y. Herald

Our latest anrj most reliable information from
