Friday Morning, Sept. 20, 1802.
Curiosity No 2—^Renunciation of the Fed.
rral Government and Opposition to it,
justified by a Portland Paper.
A few days since we took occasion to pass
briefly in review an article in the Advertiser,
from the pen of its Dew editor, Ifon. F. O. J.
Smith, entitled “God and the White Man, and
the Negro Race.” If there was any point more
distinctly exhibited in the article under re
view than any other, it seemed to our mind to
be this,—that, as in the caption to the articlci
“God and the White Man” are arrayed in oppo
sition and antagonism to, and in conflict with
the “Negro Race.” If such were the case,
Afric's sable sons might well lift up their dus
ky hands in utter despair, and exclaim, "(ear
ful odds! unequal contest!” The “White
Man” alone has proved a terrible foe to the
quiet of Africa, and lias pursued and hunted
the less favored black man with a merciless
ness and ferocity that have seldom been
equalled by the wild beasts of the jungle ; and
now if God is to la* joined will) the White Man
in fencing in and weighing down the poor
black, then indeed is his situation and destiny
a hopeless one. We shall not stop to combat
the idea that the “White Mail” is tile natural
antagonist of the negro,—though we by no
means admit tile proposition—but liefore we
shall concede that God lias become his ally in
in such a contest, we must wait for lietter au
thority and more con vineing proofs than the
bare, unsupported assumptions of the editor of
the Portland Advertiser, albeit that editor and
the princely proprietor of “Forest Home” are
one and indivisible. At the present time.how
ever, our business is with another matter—a
matter of far more transcendent importance,
at tlie present juncture, to the American peo
ple, than the simple question of negro si a lux
or negro emancipation. We have to deal now
with an open, dellanl, unblushing declaration
of hostility to the Federal Government itself,
and of open justification ofthosc who renounce
and oppose it.
The article in the Advertiser to which we
have referred above, closes with a promise to
resume the subject, and to exhibit and ex
plain the difference between using and abolish
ing slavery iu the suppression of the rebellion.
In the Advertiser of Wednesday morning,that
promise is redeemed, and it is i<|>on the doc
trines and monstrous propositions of that sec
ond article that we propose to say a brief
word. The article commences with t he fol
lowing sentence, with which we make no con
Slavery is a fixed, legal institution, in the
rebellious States; as much so, a- the constitu
tions of those States, or any vesteii corporate
right under those constitutions.
We fully agree with the writer that “in time
bf peace it would lie a degree of madness and
folly to assert the right, iu the Federal govern
ment. to abolish slarcry ill any of the States;'’
but we utterly deny and repudiate the idea
In time of tear no greater authroity is im
parted to the Federal Government than exists
for it, in time of peace, in rerqiecl to its power
over State rights and State institutions
The very first thing required of the Presi
dent of the United States is to take an oatii to
“preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution
of the United States.-’ This is not an oatii to
observe the provisions of the Constitution in
his own official acts—not an oath to support
the Constitution—though the duty is impera
tive upon him to observe it according to bis
best judgment; a duty which he cannot
disregard without incurring the hazard
nf IIMlinuokmiini • knt Ilia aalli is ta --
protect, aud defend the Constitutionto do
this against the attempts both of foreign invad
ers to overturn it, and of domestic traitors and
rebels to subvert it In time of peace—pro
found domestic peace, as well as peace with
foreign powers — the Federal Government
could have neither excuse nor apology for
many things which, in time of rebellion, it is
imperiously necessary to do to prevent the utr
ter overthrow of the Government. In time
of peace the Government cannot even quar
ter a soldier in any house w ithout the consent
of the owner; but in time of war no private
house can claim exemption from being turned
into either a hospital or a barrack, if the pub
lic exigencies require it. In time of peace
martial law could scarcely be proclaimed in
any city or State; but in time of war all civil
authority may be required to bend to the ter
rible necessities of the occasion. In time oi
peace no state Government can be interfered
with, and no officers acting under a State con
stitution are to be molested; but in time of
rebellion State governments, aud State con
stitutions, and State institutions and laws, may
all be suspended, and a tenqiorary provisional
government established, as was done in Mis
souri- for a short season; as is now done over
portions of Tennessee, Louisiana, aud North
Carolina; and the Portland Advertiser, under
the control of F. O. J. Smith, is the tlrst paper
that we have yet seen on the North side of
Mason aud Dixon's line—if possibly we except
the New York Day book, and a few of its
class, that have been excluded from the U. 8.
mails or suppressed—that lias denied this doc
trine, and virtually pronounced tin- exercise of
power by the Federal Government in the
States referred to, an usurpation and outrage.
but we have not time, at present, to pursue
this train of thought, nor do we deem it twees
sary that we should do so. We will only re
mark upon this point, that the Federal Govern
ment being the natural guardian of the Con
stitution, ami that Constitution being designed
for perpetual observance, it follows to every
loyal mind, it seems to us, that no matter what
rises up against that instrument, and threat
ens its overthrow or subversion, whether it be
individuals or States, legislators or institu
tions, it must be removed out of the way, tho'
that removal involve the utter destruction of
theforcetbus arrayed against the Government.
And we say further, that, in the lace of such a
doctrine as is laid down in the Advertiser—as
the events of the last eighteen months have
shown—the salvation of the Constitution and
the Union is an utter impossibility, and, as
against the rebel States, tho Federal Govern
ment lias no more power than a rope of sand.
President Lincoln having issued his Eman
cipation Proclamation, us a military necessity,
the Advertiser, in its very next issue alter its
publication, says:
There can be no such thing as a military
necessity, on the part of the Federal govern
ment, for tlestroying any Stale constitution,
or any Slate institution, rightfully existing
under such constitution; for its duty and obli
gation is, to preserve all. When the Federal
government yields to the destruction of either,
through weakness or revenge, it yield* to n
tqeirit of revelation; and it can no longer claim
to fulliij tire mission of the government of the
Union as it teas. It is no longer that govern
ment, hut .a failure supplanted by a substitute.
The italics in the above are the author's.
The President in the proclamation referred to,
says, that on the 1st of Jan. 18(13, ail persons
held as slaves within the States then ill rebel
lion, “shall be then, thenceforward and forever
free;” but the editor of the Advertiser says:
He has no moral or political right n> abolish
the existence of such property, or assert that
it shall not again be recogniz' d as property
In the land, either under the shallow pretext
of a military necessity, or by right of capture,
or conquest.
m ..■iHMaiMHIMMniia miymnnr^y
The claim of military necessity i» here styled
a “shallow pretext!” The President is not on
ly a tool,in that he Is “shallow,” but he is made
a knarc, for none but a knave would resort to
pretexts. Which arc but false allegations, pre
tentions, or excuses, to cover a base or unw or
thy purpose. The editor of the Advertiser,
who tints disposes of the President, goes so far
as to say that:
The whole theory of proclaiming freedom to
tile slaves in the rebel States is against the ac
knowledged rules of civilized warfare. And
no art off'ongress, and judgment of the Execu
tive can impress it with the nature of a milita
ry necessity.
But we pass all this for the purpose of mak
ing one more extract, which we venture to say
lias never beeu matched in the Saco Democrat,
the defunct Bangor Union, or any other paper
in the loyal States. It is not often that we
have found a man Iwdd enough, even though
sufficiently disloyal to do so—to defend the
right of rebellion, the right of citizens to re
noiincc and oppose the federal government, or
to deny that such renunciation and opposition
constitute the crime of treason. But Hon.
Francis O. .1. Smith—the editor of the Portland
Advertiser—does all this, and to show that we
do not misrepresent him, we give, ami invito
critical examination of, the following:
When the Federal government shall, of its
own measure, assent to, or aid in the destruc
tion of any State constitution, or of any state
institution rightfully existing under such con
stitution, as does tile institution of slavery, it
becomes itself a party to a hkvoi.i"tion ; and
every citizen is justified in renouncing and
opposing it, front that instant, as an usurpa
tion, and a despotism, and no longer as the
government acting tinder, or by authority of,
the constitution of the Union. There is nei
ther rebellion, or treason, or crime, or derelic
tion of duty, in fighting such an usurpation, by
all the means that God and nature have put at
the command of the States, or of individuals.
The President, as the Executive head and
representative of the Federal Government,
having issued his Emancipation Proclamation,
uie very iiiiug nas occurreu wincu me vvrirer
of the above declares mukes the Federal gov
ernment a party to a revolution, and "JUSTI
AND .V DESPOTISM!” The President hav
ing “assented” to the destruction of the State
institution of slavery, the editor of the Adver
tiser declares him to be a usurper and despot;
that every citizen is justified in renouncing
and opposing the government',aud that there is
neither rrheltion.or treason, or crime.or der
eliction of duty, in fighting such a usurper
by all the means that God and nature have put
at the command of the States or of individ
We don't kuow how this may strike the
minds of our loyal jieople, but to our mind
more unblushing encouragement of rebellion
was never uttered in Charleston, Savannah or
Richmond. And yet all this is in the paper
that has claimed to lie pur excellence, the sup
porter of the Administration, and whose col
umns are now crammed with the patronage
of the very government which It assails and
denounces as worthy of being renounced and
opposed by every citizen, for its official act
done by its federal head. But we stop. We
don't know what great sin our people may have
committed that such unpatriotic and disloyal
doctrines should lie pro|«igated among them.
We don't know what offence the Republican
party has been guilty of that its late organ
should thus go over to the enemy; but unless
we greatly misjudge both our people and the
Republican party, they will most heartily, in
view of such a scourging and its further con
tinuance, join iu the petition: “Good Lord,
deliver us.”
Falling away Irom Grace.
The correspondent of the New York Times,
writing from New Orleans, says:
A day or two ago my eves were attracted bv
it diminutive little man carrying the significant ■
shoulder-strap of a Brigadier-General. I had I
great confidence in his skill and courage, and
in his military knowledge, fur I knew that
Makion was very small in body, and so was
Dr. Watts. The General came up to iny ho
tel and proceeded upstairs. In a few moments
the attentive landlord, hearing that he bad a
live Brigadier General in the bouse, without
asking the clerk for his name, only asked for
his iitimlicr, which obtaining, said landlord
rushed into the bar-room, and had a julep
mixed, of standard strength, and ornamented
with an immense amount of “greens,” which
ostentatiously stuck up, making the “institu
tutiou" look more like a tlower-pot than a ge
nial beverage. This chemical and vegetable
combination, sustained by a waiter of unusual
isiliteiii'ss, was handed into “21,” with the
landlord's compliments. In due course of
time the tumbler returned as dry as a gourd,
the mint all wilted; in line, it seemed as if a
sirocco had passed over it. And what of that ?
Only, gentle reader, that the General was
General Nkai. Dow, the author of the Maine
Liquor Law, and Commander at Fort Jack
Comment by the Brooklyn Eagle:—
This is frightful. Nkal Dow, who a few years
ago, was not content unless all mankiud fore
swore eternal enmity to mint juleps and all
other “peculiar wanities” compounded by H<|- |
nor sellers; Nkai. Dow, who called out the
police of Portland to shut tip the liquor shops;
Nkai. Dow, who was never weary of poking
his nose Into other people’s business, like a
true New Englander: Nkai. Dow. succumb
ing before the seductive iullueiice of a mint
julep! Olt tell it not iu Gath, and proclaim it
not in Newr England.

of July 9th, and is going the rounds of Amer

cause of Prohibition, or its principal advocate

fled terms, the truth of the charge thus mali
ciously brought against Gen Dow.
The correspondent of the Times had the
grace to add that Gen. Dow's orderly disposed
of the julep, but this is wantonly suppressed
by the Brooklyn Eagle.
When Gen. Dow falls from the grace of
Temperance, his maligners will doubtless have
a jubilee.

column at 10 A. M. and went into the light
about noon, on the right to aid Hooker in re
pelling the attempt of the rebels to outflank
him. The regiment fired 40 rounds while they

Seventh Maine Regiment.
A letter from C. C. Hayes, Esq., states that
the 7th Maine regiment went into action Wed
nesday, 17th, under command of Major Hyde.
They were ordered to charge upon a rebel
regiment. The position was such that every
officer and man saw the danger. There was a
slight hesitation, but the word “30” was giv
en by Col. Erw in, commanding the third brig
ade, and on they went, and met with a severe
cross fire from the enemy. Major Hyde seeing
the dangerous position he w as in. immediately
moved his men toward an orchard, and there
lie met the storm of bullets from another reliel
regiment which was endeavoring to flank him.
The fire from the enemy was terrific, and made
sad havoc among the men. They, however,
retreated in good order, but not without meet
ing with great loss, the numlier killed, wound
ed and missing amounting to 104.
Killed—Lieut. Brown, Co. 1; Lieut. Good
win, Co. I).
M’oi/ndi d--Oapt. Cochran, Co. K, in foot by
a shell—doing well; Citpf. Cook, Co. I, flesh
wound in leg—is getting along well; Lieut.
Haskell, Co. B, acting Adjutant, shot through
Imtli knees—w ounds serious, and he lias been
sent to Philadelphia; Lieut. Shorey, Co. F,
wound in foot—is doing w ell; Sergeant Major
John Parsons was shot and died next morning;
Harvey Campbell, color bearer, was shot and
fell upon the colors, which were, however, se
cured and brought oil' the Held by one of the
color corporals; Capt. Jones received a slight
flesh wound in the back part of the neck,
though he is able for duty.
There is hardly an officer or private but
what had bullets pass through his clothes.
Lieut. Warren, Co. II, and Lieut. Baker, Co.
A, were taken prisoners.
Mr. Hayes states that he went out with
C'apt. Jones, under a Hag of truce, to obtaiu
the wounded, but did not succeed, as they
were Hred upon by the enemy. They made
several attempts, but were unsuccessful. The
enemy disregarded the flag and wounded quite
a number of our men w ho were carrying ofl'
their wounded.
The Meeting ol the Governors.
The Argus looks upon the meeting of the
Governors of the loyal States, at Altoona,
Penn., as a “Hartford Convention, No. g," and
What these sage men are about to attempt
we do not see. They have no more business
to leave their posts than have so many other
military commanders. Suppose the chieftains
of the army were to follow the example with
Gen. -McClellan at their head, w hat W ould be
said ?
It was perhaps, very wrong for the Govern
ors to assemble for council w ithout informing
our neighbor, and then perhaps lie would see
what they are about. This attempt to raise a
suspicion that some deviltry is to be concocted,

litical action, who can see no patriotism ex
cept in voting the democratic ticket, and
w hose highest ideas of policy, is to cheat some
body or to gain a strategic advantage. The
truth is, oil democrats an* not of the Argus
stripe. Among the assembled Governors are
several Democrats,—from Ohio, Maryland,
Virginia, Kentucky and Missouri, and the in
telligence received from them is that they arc
acting in the utmost harmony. An article in
the Boston Journal closes as follows:
It may tend to reassure those who have
been alarmed by the* seosatioiiUts, to learn
that the meeting of tin* Governors was called
at the instance of Gov. Todd of Ohio, a Dem
ocrat in poll tics, and as true and loyal a man
as can Im* found in any of the Northern States.
It was sanctioned by Gov. Curtin of Pennsyl
vania. and by Gov, Pierrepont of Western Vir
ginia—InJtli conservative men and true patriots,
its object is simply "to take measures for the
more actire support of the f/orerninent"—an
object which will commend itself to every
loyal citizen. The friends of the government
w ill have ample assurance in the character of
tin* men composing this gathering, that no
treason will be hatched at Altoona, but that a
more united and energetic support of the gov
ernment will Ik* initiated.

The Enemy Fortifying Winchester.
New York, Sept. 25.
The Times’ Washington dispatch says the
rebel prisoners captured by Gen. Sigel's scouts
near C'entreville, were brought here to-day.—
They give the loss of the rebels iu tlie late
battles iu Maryland at about 20,(KM).
Tlie rebels have concentrated their forces at
Winchester, which place they are fortifying.—
These prisoners report the loss of rebel officers
in tlie late battles as very great.
A di-patch from the Times’ special corres
pondent says that Lieut Kerney has just re
turned from a scouting expedition to Leesburg
and vicinity. The rebels have cavalry iu all
directions iu that neigliliorhood.
There are no rebel soldiers between Wash
ington and Centreville.
Several refugees from Richmond hire just
arrived here. They state that there are no
rebel pickets lietween Hanover Court House
and the Potomac river, and only twenty men
were stationed along that railroad lietween
Hanover and Richmond. Great apprehensions
of a famine prevail among the lower classes in
Richmond, tlie price of provisions already
1 icing so high as almost to place them beyond
their reach.
The Herald’s special dispatch from Altoona
is to the effect that tlie principle object of tlie
convention was to discuss the conduct of the
war. Two propositions had been made and
discussed. One for tlie removal of Genetal
McClellan and tlie other for tlie approval of
the President’s last Proclamation. The first
proposition caused some debate, Governors
-enure w ana tsprtigue arguing in lavoror uen.
McClellan’s removal, Tod, Curtin and Brad
ford opposing it. During tlie evening session
tile debate was very amiiinatcd, but resulted
in the throwing over ol the pro|tositmn for
the removal of Gen. McClellan. The conven
tion finally decided upon the approval of the
President’s proclamation, and urging upon him
a more vigorous prosecution of the war, and
calling out the reserves. Gov. Morton declin
ed to lie present, not considering the meeting
Private information leads to the belief that
the entire Ueraid story relative to the
meeting of loyal Governors at Altoona is bas
ed upon incorrect outside statements. Au ex
plicit anil authoritative report of what was
said and done Is 1io|kmI for.
Tlie Argus has done us the favor to
quote several “friendly notices”—over the
loft—for our benellt, and, not to be outdone in
this kind of courtesy, we give the following
from the New York Tribune of the 20th iust:
The Eastern Argus blossoms with unusual
fragrance in the following passage, containing
at least a dozen deliberate falsehoods to the
square inch:
The New York Ikihi;ne which iias been more
than once upon its kitts-s legging public opinion to
overlook its tla.star.lly lalseliooiis anti its nictations
to the Arlministratioii, is again playing at that ol.l
game its instincts lead it to, ol detraction without
proof und calumny tinder the gaise of patriotic ne
cessity. Having op.-n.-d tit.- raid on l.en. McClellan,
ami urged a not over-sirong Administration into the
disaster of the first Hull Kitn. (for which tin* editor
publicly begged pardon,| it n—ailed Pop,- and Mc
Dowell for their inefficiency . Now that they arc dis
placed amt McClellan re-instated, it again commen
ces its insidious attacks upon McClellan, but in a
more dastardly way than ever.
—Boy! take the tongs and throw the foul
sheet out of the w indow,and never let another
come into the otiice. Miscreants who w ill lie
like that are to be loathed and shunned like
tlie leprosy. It were idle to correct them—
they will tell two more such while you are re
futing one.
” j^* In allusion to an article in your paper
of yesterday, permit me to say that if Dr. Bel
lows hail examined tlie records of the New
Jersey Railroads, he would have found that
up to the first ol tins month the New Jersey
and New Jersey Central K ill road Companies
have transported over their roads more than
100,000 troops of the first call for 300,000.—
These men are all in the vicinity of McClellan
and his army. The records are accessible to
any one who wishes to make the inquiry. *
