COMMUNICATIONS,
Correspondence ol the Press.
WAsnnroTON, D. C., Aug. 24th, 1802.
Ed it art of the Press:—But a few days since,
I sent you a communication containing some
items of general news,together with some com
ments on the course of those who are constant
jy ana lactiousiy denouncing every represen
tative of our government and all our worthy
and noble officers in the field. It appears that
you did not think it proper to publish it in your
columns, and for the reason, as I suppose, that
It contained such comments; In this matter I
certainly shall not question your good judg
ment and taste; but in looking over the Press
last night I saw a communication, dated at
Washington, and signed by “Zeb,” written by
a person with whom I am well acquainted,and
which contained the most uqjust, insulting and
nbusive reflections upon the course of our aide
and patriotic Gov. Washburn. Now I will
simply state that I have met your correspond
ent “Zeb" every day for a number of weeks
past, and that from his lips I have not as yet,
heard one word of commendation of any one of
the Government officials or military men in
the field. On the contrary he and the class of
men to which he belongs, are constantly de
nouncing and calumniating our honest and
faithful President, and frequently express the
wish that he would resign. Often have I heard
him speak of Secretary Seward, as “a knave
and a fbol" and of Adjutant Gen. Thomas, as a
“traitor,” and of course, in this storm of gener
al and indiscriminate denunciation, Gen. Mc
Clellan has come in tor a full share.
This may be true patriotism, and if so, it is
eminently proper that all adverse criticism up
on the course of such men should be carefully
excluded from the public journals. It may be
said that such men arc only cxercislngthe leg
itimate right of criticising the government and
its officials. But I can liardly concede that
legitimate criticism, prompted by honest and
patriotic motives, would lead a man into con
stant and wholesale abuse and denunciation of
all our government officials and military men.
I have never yet been suspected of any sympa
thy with traitors,or even the principles of mod
em democracy; but so help me God, I had
rather be associated with the open traitors to
our country, in the hour of peril, than with
those hypocrites who profess to be its most de
voted friends, but who are interposing every
possible obstacle to its salvution, and would
rather to-day, see this Union go dowii forever,
in blood, than that the institution of slavery as
It has heretofore existed iu the States, should
be preserved.
I can assure you that I am no slavery apolo
gist. No man desires more than myself to see
all men become free, but mere, proclamations
from whatever place they may issue, can never
liberate the slaves. It must be done if at all,
by our victorious armies as they march through
the South, Then let all loyal and patriotic
men at the North, labor together with the one
common and determined purpose, to render
the army of the Republic efficient and over
whelming. And if the unhallowed institution
of slavery shall fall before our victorious hosts,
as it certainly will, then all men who arc inter
ested for our future national honor and well
being will have good reason to rejoice. W.
Notk.—We think W'» former letter must have mis*
carried, u we do not recollect seeing it. nor should
we have refused to publish for such a reason as he
suggests. The letter of‘'Zeb” which he so severely
censures was the same one to which we referred in an
editorial paragraph.and which we condemned for tho
name feature in it referred to by W.—[Ed. Press.

North Boothbay, Sept. 1,1862.
Editors Press: Dear Sir*,—We have just
concluded our town meeting, which wa* called
for the purpose of seeing what action the town
would take concerning the draft.
A committee was appointed to wait upon
the Governor, and request a postponement oi
it until our fishermen return from their cruis
es. Our quota for the draft is 26, and we can
not muster more than that number of able
bodied men in town at this time. The town
voted to pay the nine months men one hun
dred dollars each, if they would lie raised with
out drafting. One old fogie, who was In favor
of immediate drafting, moved to reconsider
the vote of the town, and it passed; but the
town immediately after voted to pay one hun
dred and twenty-flce dollars to volunteers.
1 suppose if tlie vote had l>een re-considered
the second time twenty-five or fifty dollars
would have been added to the bounty.
We have a few anti-war men among us. hut
the more they kick the deeper they all have to
put their hands into their pockets, for the Un
ion sentiment is predominant, and will prevail,

Appeal to the Women of Portland.
•‘When the wild clash of steel—the hoary step
Of armed men, break on our morning dream*;
When, hour by hour, the noble and the brave
Are falling round us, and we deem it much
To give them funeral rites, and call them blest,
If the good sword, in its own storinv hour
Hath done its work upon them, ere disease
Had chill’d their fiery blood: it is no time
For the light mein wherewith in happier hours
WV trod the woodiand mazes, w hen young leaves
Were whispering in tho gale,”
And yet—“As it was in the days of Noah,
they did cat, they drank, they married wives,
they were given in marriage until the day that
Noah entered into the ark, and the flood came,
and destoyed them all,” even so it seems to be
now aud here. Concerts, pic-nics, celebrations,
excursions, Ac., Ac. Who that values life and
liberty can have a heart f»r such things, when
the cry for aid aud sympathy comes up to us
“from the couches of our braves, now stretch
ed sick and wounded—some perhaps on the
cold ground with no kind hand to alleviate
their agony,”—suffering and dying for want of
such comforts ami alleviations, as might have
been purchased and sent tiiem, or the money
•pent by some of our people upon their own
pleasures and luxuries? Fathers, brothers,
friends—going forth by thousands to preserve
for us our homes and freedom—and we living
in comfort and peace under our own vine and
flg tree! Well may we a«k, are these tilings so?
Who shall speak the word—in tones of thun
der, if necdjbe—that shall wake us out of this
lethargy that seems to rest so heavily upon us ?
Shall we wait till our own New England is in
vaded by rebel hordes, our homes laid waste,
our fellow citizens murdered lieforc our eyes
ere we are thoroughly awake to our dangers
and our duty?
“What have wo at the North, with all our
wealth of means ami men, done in comparison
with the almost bankrupt concern at the
South ?” asks one of our soldiers. What are
we doing in our own city for “God aud our
country ?” How many of our ladies are ready
to give up their luxuries, and deny themselves
every unnecessary indulgence for the sake of
their country, and to relieve the agonies of the
sick and wounded soldiers? Many of our wo
men have done nobly—some have labored far
beyond their strength—but, have all the wo
men of Portland done what they could? In
many of our towns nnd cities the women of all
classes are far before us iu their labors aud self
aacriflpA.
We would ask if there are not five thousand
women in our great city, who are willing to
follow the example of our sister city, and save
two cents a week, to be paid into a fund for the
suffering soldiers? How many lives might be
saved by this (iffy dollars a week, so easily
raised, and scarcely missed by most of
those who might give it. How many, many
—are these who could give a half hour's work
daily, or more than that, and lie themselves
the better and happier for it, Wlieu our last
account is rendered up—shall It lie said of us,
‘•She hath done what she could,” for the eause
of Liberty and Christianity? “This appeal is
most earnestly and affectionately maJe to all
loyal and humane persons. They have already
done much, but redoubled efforts in all depart
ments of the war must now be made. The
000,000 new recruits will not be without their
sick and wounded, and many a hard battle
must yet be fought Ltd the rich give of their
abundance. Let the poor spare ail they can.”
Let us each and all, men, women and chil
dren, faithfully perform our duty towards Cod
and our country, and in his own good time,
the God iu whom we trust will give us the vic
tory. p.

should be saved or destroyed:

all the slaves; if lie would remove Secretary
Stanton; if he would supersede Gen. McClel

Hunter's proclamations; if I didn’t have to l>e
cursed by ray superiors; if I could get a Lieu
tenancy; if Mr,-wouldn't be Colonel; If I
didn’t have to guard bridges; If I could fo
rage on Rebel property; if I were not afraid
my health would fail; if my father would con
sent; If Congress would adopt the Crittenden
i Compromsie; if the time were changed to one
year; if the Seventieth Regiment would be
sent to Richmond; if it were not for the im
I morality of camp life; ven I could iniue lager

Gen. Wallace; if 1 could leave my business; if
volunteers would lie taken for three months;
if I were not in debt; if my wife were not op

South; if 1 hail any taste or inclination for
war; if I had not a little svmpathv for the

[Indianapolis Journal.
Mediation.—The Halifax Recorder thus
talks to those people in the Colonies who are
, so anxious for European intervention in the
! American difficulties:—
| “Let us bear in mind that no mediation can
j be offered which will not result in Federal
hostility, and in the establishment of the Con
! federates among the nations of the earth. Let
the belligerents attain that position, in which
it will lie evident to impartial witness that the
independence ol the Mouth is established, be
fore we ask on their behalf for recognition.
We must remember that at the outset of this
j war, the Southerners were declared by the
I wisest voices of the mother country, aiid of
Europe, to be in the wrong, and that they
have nothing to recommend them in the fam
ily of nations but the power of the sword, and
I the sincerity of which victory will be regard
ed as the index. Because the Northern press,
: and |K-rhaps the Northern Government, have
not manifested the behavior towards England
| which would have better become her, Jet that
| not palliate the conduct of the South as it
j seems to do in the minds of mauy colonists,
I and let us endeavor not to exhibit too much
magnanimity to reciprocate.”
How 1’eoim.k Give.—Some men will give
a dollar and put so much heart into it that it
j will be worth more than a thousand dollars
j from another. Some men will give, but il is
as when miners blast out gold bearing quartz.
| —you have to drill till you can elici t a lodg
ment, and then put in good motives like pow
der, then off. at last, goes the explosion, and
you are almost covered by the rocks which
: they the at you. This giving is not what the
! Bible requires. It is not enough for our Fath
er in heaven that we are generous in giving.
We must wreath our charities about with
beauty.
