Monday Morning, June 30, 1862.
. Considerations for Honest Democrats.
It has long been the lioast of Democratic
leaders that their party, for one-half of a
century, has had control of the Government,
held the reins of power, and that nearly all of
our material prosperity, with the growth of
the Union, have been secured under the dom
inance of the policy heretofore denominated the
Democratic policy. It is not our purpose at
this time either to endorse or ignore this claim.
We are not ignorant of the history of the par. j
ty referred to, nor are we unmindful of the
galaxy of great names scattered along the path
way of that history. For Democracy per uc—
Democracy as understood and exemplified by
Jefferson and Madison—we entertain the most
profound respect, and when mrh a Democra
cy is understood we plead second to no one in
the justice of our claims to be recognized as a
Democrat. But for that form of Democracy ■
which to-day is recognized by party leaders;— I
that kind of Democracy set forth, vindicated
and contended for in the recent address of C.
L. Yallandigham and others—thirteen mem
bers of the present Congress—and upon wliicli
it has been proposed to re-erect and re-estab
lish a National Democratic party, we have no
more respect than we have for the teachings |
of Jo. Smith, the insane follies of the Five
Lover. or the idiosyncroeies of Abby Folsom.
Our present purpose Is to appeal to the can- j
did spirit of old political associates, and ask
them to consider for one momeut if. under the !
pleasing and specious name of Democracy, j
they are not liable to deception, and are not
really worshipping a mere phantom—the mere
“ghost of Democracy,” to use the precise term
receutly applied by one of those to whom we
would appeal—while the essential essence, soul .j
and spirit ofDemocracy, aud all there is of it ;
worth remembering or preserving, have de
parted from their organization, and are really
identified with and represented by an organiza
tion which they are opposing? What was
the Democracy of Jefferson, and wherein con
sisted its (lower to touch and move the popu
lar heart ? It was, briefly summed up, the doc
trine of equal rights—that all men, by virtue
of their common creation, arc equal. Such a
doctrine laid the axe at the very tap-root of
all those old governmental policies which
spring from a recognition of the “divine right
of kings,” and awakened the opposition of all
who doubted the ability of the people to gov
ern themselves, or who believed iu a frame
work ol government made of hardened alrei,
that would break before it would bend a hair's
breadth to meet the Increasing wants of man,
developed by the advance of the age In light
and knowledge.
The secret of the success of the Jeffersonian
doctrine, is found in its adaptability to the com
mon wants of the common people. It embraced
the masses, and to it the same masses cheer
fully gave their hearts and their hearts’ best
But how is it to-day? Take that policy
claimed to be democratic by those who worship
abe name of Democracy and are striving to
rekindle fires upon its altars; do the people
respond to it? Where? In what State? At
wbat election ? Is it not notoriously true that
the people refuse both their votes and their
sympathy for nominations coupled with mod
ern expositions of Democracy ? Our experi
ence and our observation both assure us that j
such is the fact. The reason for this fact is
apparent. Democracy, as at present defined—
of course we refer to the definitions given
through its organs and organizations—is not
what it was in Jefferson's time. It has ceased
to make equal rights its chief comer Btone,
and has come to be the champion and defend
er, or at least, the apologist and conservator of
one of the worst forms of despotism that ever
disgraced a civilized nation. Look at the
so-called democratic platforms and resolutions
of the day—the programme of Messrs. Valan
digham, Richardson & Co., to which allusion
has already been made. What is the central
idea, the inspiring spirit, the real soul, the es
sential essence of them all ? Is it that human
freedom must be defended; that civil and re- !
ligious liberty must be sacredly guarded; that
the avenues through which oppression travels
should be carefully dosed up; that Right is
superior to Might; that fidelity to its moral
convictions is the safest policy ior a nation ns
well as for an individual: that truth, iustice
aim nguieousuess arc as inseparable from na
tional as from personal prosperity ? Are these
tiie cardinal, unbending, immovable landmarks
of Democracy, in the present form of its devel
o;>emeut ? Do these enter into the" constella
tion by whose light its course is shaped amid
the clouds and darkness of the present hour?
We ask honest Democrats, whose hearts have
not become fossilized by party drill—especially I
young men, who wish to start in a sale direc
tion and from a defensible tjaml-poiut. to think
of these things, and as the church lias it,“mark, 1
learn, and inwardly digest them.”
We ask them, spurning all leadership, and
using the intelligence with which they have ‘
been favored, to look facts in the face, and see
how tiie Democracy of to-day, as it is propos
ed to reconstruct and defend it, is a mere bob
for the slavery kite. Look at its resolutions, i
and wherein they differ from the resolutions
of the Republican organizations, it will lie ;
found that they differ mainly on the side, in tie
direction, and jn favor of, slavery. “ Slavery
must not be disturbed”—'“Slavery must be let j
alone Slavery must not be abolished"—
these are their sum and sulislance to a lamen
table extent. Sup|iort the government, they
aay, but don't touch slavery; put down the re
bellion, but don’t touch slavery: restore tiie
tTnlon, but don't jostle slavery; and so the
“ don't-Uiucb-slavery ” is tacked on as a condi
tion precedent of almost every proposition
made by the class of democratic leaders to
whom we refer, and who are to be tiie men of -
the party and R» rotitroliug men, if the party
is galvanized into life. Tiie very necessity lor 1
its reconstruction is averred to be. in almost so
many words, to save the I’nion without hurt
ing slarrrgThis tendency and pur|tose are 1
shown in tne very slang phrases which they
apply to Republicans and Republicanism;
“ Repubiicaeisin is abolitionism r say they;
“ Republicans are abolitionists,- and with the
stale, senseless and meaningless charge of |
Abolitionism they hope to keep men from lis
tenliig to the voice of their ow n consciences,
and from being true to the voice of God speak
lng within them.
Wc have said enough to indicate not only
why Jefferson's democracy was popular, ami
carried the popular heart with it, but also why
Democrrry. as at present represented, falls
dead upon the public heart, and fails to awak
eu a response from the people. Take from
their organizations the charm of an old ami
cherished name, and the Democratic party
would be as dead as were the bones in Ezekiel's
Valley of Vision, and there would be no more
possibility of awakening it to life than there is
ot breathing the breath of life into the silent
tenants of the tomb.
The cry of abolitionism—of black republi
canism—we have said is stale. It is fast be
coming a badge of honorable distinction for
an honest man to lie taunted as an abolitionist
by a modern democrat. It implies that he is
true to his instincts; that he has not forgotten
his brotherhood; that he is a man, with a man's
heart. Let any man, with Jefferson, declare
that in view of the Institution of slavery, he
“ trembles for his country when be remembers
that Uod is just,” and he will be denounced as
an abolitionist—as a proper subject of demo
cratic opposition.
The Battle at James Island,
The unfortunate affhir at James Island, near
Charleston, on the lflth of June, is not calcu
lated to raise the spirits of our peopl?, or to
dampen those of the relsds. Our troops have
prided themselves upon their superiority
in a close, hand-to-hand conflict, and we fear
that their confidence, in tliis regard, may be
come somewhat impaired. As the Boston
Traveller well remarks, “ when the evidence Is
“ all in, and an official investigation is made,
“ we shall he able to determine who is blamea
“ ble In the matter. At present we have no
“ evidence by which to judge whether any of
“ (leer is to blame, or whether it is one of those
“ casualties of the war not to be foreseen.”
The following remarks of the Traveller are
“ Whether blame attaches to any one or not,
there is a lesson comes with this event, which
our people will do well to heed. It shows the
danger of precipitating men upon strongly en
trenched lines of defence. In the first place
our officers and moil, though brave enough for
the deadly work, have not the experience
necessary to conduct it successfully and with
the least necessary loss of life, in the next
place, with the most experienced and veteran
troops, it inevitibly involve a terrible loss of life,
which only the most imperious necessity of
haste or importance in carry ing the works, can
justify a commander in sacrificing.”
" Unquestionably, where no ini|>criniis ne
cessity requires the immediate capture of bat
teries by assault, they should first be pounded
by artillery sufficiently to weaken or demolish
them, before bringing unprotected flesh and
blood under a murderous lire from strongly
covered works.”
“it took our impulsive and sanguine people
some years to learn that railroads, factories and
other public works need to be constructed
with some regard to economy in the expendi
ture of money, and it will profaally take them !
quite as long to learn that war which, in its
best estate, is all exposure, privation, danger,
suffering ami death, needs to be carried on
with as economical an expenditure of life us
circumstances will allow.”
Such a continued series of v'etories has
crowned the efforts of the Federal armies from
the taking of forts Henry and Donelson un' l
the battle of Fair Oaks, that we have learned
to look for no reverses, and this fact is perhaps
a sufficient explanation of the dispiriting ef
fect of reverses which reasonable men should
calculate upon and be prepared to meet. We
need, perhaps, an occasional reverse to disci
pline our military leaders, and check the ten
dency to do acts of undue presumption and
rashness. If the reverst at James Island shall
have this effect, it will, like the terrible expe
riences at Bull Bun, Ball's Bluff and Front
Boyal, though expensive, prove to be a profita
ble lesson.
The New York Post has the following ac
count of this disastrous affair, the facts deriv
ed, we take It. from the disabled soldier* who
have been returned to that city:—
“The battle of the 16th inst.. began at four
o'clock in the morning. The design of the of
ficers was to approach the rebel works near
Secessionvffle before daylight; but the delays
incidental to an advance over ground where
not perfectly understood, prevented the execu
tion of the programme.
General Benham assumed command, nnd
our men, with the llighlauders and Eighth
Michigan regiment in the advance, marched
gallantly on the enemy’s wurks. This charge
was so rapid that the rebels were unable to
bring their guns Into full use until the Federal
force was very near. They poured iti a de
structive fire, including musketry, and remain
ed inside their entrenchments. Thor* was lint
little pause. The regiments we have named
rushed up to the trenches and into and through
them and directly to the breastworks, where a
terrible struggle took place, in which the ene
my were driven from their guns. A large
numlier of our troops scaled tile parapets, the
rebels retreating.
There are conflicting statements regarding
the battle at this point. The officers of the
storming party declare they were not support
ed—that Gen. Stevens failed to bring up his
forces in time; and a halt, it appears, was or
dered. It is believed by the troops who con
stituted the advance, that they could have
cleared the defence* if they had followed up
the advantage while the rebels Were disorgan
ized ahd expected to be pursued. The halt,
however, enabled the enemy to collect their
They soon recommenced the fight, and a
sanguinary liaud-to-liand conllict ensued, in
which the vastly superior rebel force brought
against the small number—variously stated at
one and three hundred men—who had actual
ly scaled the parapets, enabled the reliels to
force them liack into the treuches. Here a
terrible and destructive tight took place. The
renew obtained position* whence they could
pour on enfilading fire upon our tnups, and
four litinilretl vicn of the Federal force were
either killed or wounded More & retreat could
he successfully accomplished.
The utmost bravery and heroism were dis
played by our men throughout the disastrous
struggle. They retreated in order, taking with
them their wounded, w ith a few exceptions.
The reltels did not IbUow.
Keitel troops are constantly arriving, and
their preparations for the defence of Charles
ton, which would he ex]Kt»ed to bombardment
il tile rebels were driven oil' James Island, are
u|kiu a very extensive scale. There is, how
ever, some difficulty itt obtainiug troops, from
from the fact tint the reltel cause is nowhere
considered safe enough to admit of detaching
any part of their forces, and the authorities in
Richmond are calling in all available troops for
tlie defence of the capital."
The following, gleaned from the Hilton Head
cttreespondence of the New York Commercial
Advertiser, give one some idea of the awful
horrors of w ar, ami show w lmt fearful respon
sibility rests upon the authors of this wicked
and causeless rebellion:
"Last night tint lien Deford brought down
the w ounded from Janus* Islam), and oh, what
a sight it was! Four hundred brave men
strew n about, tilling deck, cabin, hold, and ev
ery part of the ship, some miuus an arm, otli
eis a leg, ami others with fearful ghastly
wottmls of every description. Though every
thing possible was dour for their comfort, atid
every menu* tried for ventilation, the sinell was
horrid, ami nothing hut a personal Interest ami
a h«>|s' to relieve some poor fellow's distress
could keep you a moment on board the vessel.
Four men lying next to each other had each
lost an arm—two the right, and two the left
They were earnestly reciting their several ex
perience* on the field, ami only regretting they
could not catch some of tire traitors.
Capt. Hitchcock, of the 7th Connecticut, is
one of the victims. Hi* leg was shattered at
lire hip, aud w hen told that it was useless to
amputate it, that lie could not survive the op
eration, he answered, "1 have a wife and five
children; 1 cannot die and leave them desti
tute. My constitution is strong, aud you must
try it.” lie never rallied from the operation.
The 8til Michigan ap|>ear to have been the
greatest losers. This Is the third fight w here
they have sufiered severely—once at Fort Roy
al terry, again at Wilmington Island, and now
on James Island. They sufiered much from
sickness when they first arrived here, and from
one thousand men they are now reduced to
less than four hundred.
From what I ran learn, the officers, other
than Gen Uenliarn, who was in command, had
no thought of the movement until Sunday
night, when they were called to a council of
war. The other generals all protested against
it as hazardous In the extreme, lnvolviug a
needless risk of life, and almost sure to end in
disaster. I am also informed that lien. Hun
ter had given ]>ositive orders, loth verbal and
w ritten, that no advance should be made ex
cept by his order; yet in the face of all this the
attempt to storm the works was ordered. I
hear that on the secoud attack thy batteries
had ceased tiring for some minutes, that Gen.
Williams had flanked them on their right, and
that in a few minutes more the works would
have been In our possession, when a retreat
was ordered, during which we were worse
slaughtered than at any time before.
The future is of course in the dark, but all
confidence is felt in the discretion of Gen.
Hunter. The key of Charleston is in our
hands, and it can be successfully used with
such officers as Gens. Wright, Stevens and
Williams. We can afford to wait our time.
Even if our forces are now withdrawn for san
itary reasons, what we have gained can be held
by a gunboat or two, and when the time comes
the slaughter of June lti will be remembered.'’
Alter the battle of James Island, General
Stevens issued a general order to his Division,
concluding as follows:
“Our best and truest men now sleep the sleep
that knows no waking. Their dead bodies lay
on the enemy's parapet. Church. Pratt, Cot
trell, Guild, Morrow, Horton, Hitchcock, many
other gallant and noble men we shall see no
mot e.
Honor, therefore, all honor to you, men of
the Second Division. You have shown what
you will do when you shall have the proper
opportunity. You did not seize the fort, be

to lx* impossible bvttae reconnoissance referred

Gov. Washburn. Our readers will Bud it in
Hon. L Washburn, Jr.: ,
My Dear Sir:—We like Dr. Blunt much.
He appears to be a whole man and a good
physician. It is a pleasure to have such a man
with us. My sick list is diminishing and our
numbers increasing. The sick are returning
from the Hospital. I have two hundred and
fifty "absent and sick” who ought to be back
here very soon. In all, I have 327 absent anil
sick privates, and eight commissioned officers
While we were on the march every day, ali
who were taken down so they could not keep
up with the regiment. 1 had sent off to hospi
tals. They could not follow the regiment, and
to leave them behind would have Iwen death
to them, probably. Most of that large num
ber. I doubt not, had we tx?on ia camp, would
have recovered by this time. Every day now,
they are coining iu, having been discharged
from the hospitals. A large num!x*r have been
rent home to Maine. Now that passes can be
given them to'return I lio|x> soon to see them
coming in large squads. * * * •
If I had a thousand men—Maine men—such
men as I now have, God helping us, we would
make a name for our goixl old State. My lit
tle battallion stood the Are of the enemy for
hours, until more than half their number had
fallen, and would have stood longer had I said
so. It Is a wonder to mi1—their perfect cool
ness after the tlrst “scare” was off. They put
themselves into my hands and otx yed my or
hottest fire, while their comrades were drop
ping all around them—as they did on parade.
Indeed many did better, for they gave better
attention. Such men ran't be beaten. Even
the wounded would not retire so long as they
could fight One boy—his name I think was
Prescott, from Exeter, held up his bloody
hand—blood was all over him and his gun, his
face was all presperation and blood—and look
ing up Ifltn my face, said: “Colonel, do you
think I had better leave.” His middle finger
had been cut away close to his hand and he
had kept up his tin' until forced, not by |>ain,
but by the inconvenience of the thing, to de
sist. I sent him to the rear. There was no
difference, all—young and old, officers and
privates,ready to make the fight to the death.
Yes, it is a iconrter to me—their good conduct.
The 11th l<oysare buried nearer Richmond than
any soldiers of the Union army. That is tme
of Lieut West’s grave, and he fell several rods
in rear of where some others fell. Willis

June 22.—Quite an engagement took place
yesterday on that part of our lines where
Sedgwick’s division is stationed. The rebels
advuuced in force at about half-past five in the
afternoon, and attempted to break through our
lines. Sedgwick permitted them to advance
until they came in good range of several lot
teries that lie had concealed in the wood.when
he opened upon them with grape and canister,
which caused them to skedaddle toward Rich
mond in a hurry. Nearly one hundred were
captured, and as many killed and wounded.—
Our loss was very light.
This is the second time since the battle of
Fair Oaks that they have tried to take our men
by surprise, and have lieen handsomely re
pulsed each time with severe loss. They en
deavored hist night to rescue their wounded,
hut they received no quarters. The sound of
musketry could he heard at intervals all night,

engaged, our men slept undisturbed. Our ar

The Commerce of New Orlenns.
(From the New Orleans Bee, June 14 J
Tile |w>rt of New Orleans has been legally
open since the 1st of June; the arrival of the
Collector of the jKirt w ill tend to regulate the
movements of vessels, and he will remove all
traces of the blockade but the restrictions rel
ative to articles contraband of w ar. as stated
ill Mr. Chase's circular, which we published
yesterday. We are informed that a multitude
of ships, actually loading in the northern ports,
will soon appear at New Orleans, anil cover
our levees with a great quantity of manufac
tured articles. •
We believe that these reports are greatly ev
aggerated. Postal communication between
New Orleans and New York is frequent enough
for speculators in this city to get accurate in
formation of tile state of financial and com
mercial a It airs in New York. As regards pro
visions and a few very necessary articles, there
l» very little that can tind buyers it. a state to
pay in cash, w hile business oil credit w ill not

, not pay specie.
Tile summer season is already far advanced,
and it is hardly prolmhle that there will lie
much business in products of the seaaou: on
the other hand, it is too early to send any w in
ter products. Commerce, then, will be limited
during the summer to articles of daily eon
sumption, and the people will lind themselves
restricted by tile state of affairs immediately
succeeding the present embarrassment.
These considerations, which ought to lie
known by the commercial men of the North,
w ill stop any great exportation of merchan
dise. It will Is* difficult to freight ships forthe
voyage out alone if they are not assured of
freight on return; and we cannot see how there

captains will not care to arrive here at a time

The President's Speech.—It is known
that President Lincoln’s brief visit to and con
sultation with (icn. Scott, set curiosity on tip
toe to dnd out his object, and to learn what
great events might hinge on that quiet and un
ostentatious journey. At Jersey f’ity, on his
return, the crowd was vociferous to hear from
Mr. hincoln, and would not be satisfied or put
off with a mere nod of the head, so the distin
guished traveller gratified them with the fol

"When birds and animals arc looked at
through a fog they are seen to disadvantage,
and their size is greatly increased; but when
the fog clears away the effect is diminished,
and they appear in their natural proportions.
And so it might be wttb you if I were to at
tempt to tell you why I wont to see Gen. Scott.
1 can only say that my visit to West Point did
not have the importance w hich lias been at
tached to it; hut it concerned matters that you
understand quite us well as if I were to tell
you all about them. Now I can only remark
that it had nothing whatever to do with mak
ing or unmaking of any general in the coun
try. (Laughter and applause.) The Secreta
ry of \\ ar, you know, holds a pretty tight
reign on the press, so that they shall not tell
more than they ought to; and fain afraid if I
blab too much he might draw a tight rein on
me.” (Laughter and applause.)
