PORTLAND, MAINE, —.--*#»»■ ■ ■— -- Thursday .Morning, October ‘i. 1 Opposition to the President Invoked—Com promise and Revolt covertly suggested. If the President shall fall from his hitherti suhlitue position of nationality in conducting the war, which God forbid, let us hope Ihnl th< people of the glorious free and iudependen suites that yet have Congressmen to elect, wil favor none, and elect none, who will not havi the courage amt manhood to say to him am to his most perverse advisers, “thus far shut; thou route, ami no farther." The people havi yet a duty to perform to the white race in tin name of liberty, and to perform it well, lei them through tile ballot box accomplish wlial yet has not been aecomplisli.nl through theii armies, the salvation of the Union as it was ami the constitution us it is. In this direction now, all our hopes turn, more than upon a ruptured Cabinet, divided armies, and a dis pirited soldiery, who may begin to feel them seines sacrificed to an oligarchy of fanaticism, rail ter than to the enemy on the open battle field.—(Portland Ailvrrtiser. The above extract from a city iwijicr, when read in connection wit h the article of which it forms the conclusion, is pregnant with fearful suggestions which may not appear to the mere superficial reader. We do not refer to the sug gestion that the President, in his imbecility, and inability to stand up against the pressure of “his most perverse advisers,” should 1st headed off, by the people acting through the ballot-liox, but we refer to the mischievous, il not malignant and wicked suggestion made to the soldiers' ears, that they are being used for improper and unpatriotic purposes, and arc be ing "sacrificed to an oligarchy of fanaticism." The only legitimate influence of such sugges tions is to breed discontent in the ranks, ami to cripple the power of tile soldier for de fensive and offensive war, by destroying his confidence in the government and bis faith in final success. There has been much written to exhibit the evil consequences of destroying the confidence i>i uic suiuiery lit iririr military ieaut*rs; mu the evils are surely no less, whicli are likely to result from a loss of confidence iu those who control the movements of the military com manders; and if the soldiers are induced to be lieve in the incompetency of the President and his advisers,and that the war is not being pros ecuted for |Hitriotic purposes, but for the ac complishment of base ends and iu a way to “sacrifice the soldier to an oligarchy of fanati cism,” the most uaturul fruits of such belief and loss of confidence will be revolt, unsubor dination and impatience under discipline. Our soldiery is made up of intelligent meu. who read and think, who have shared fully in the blessings of a free government, and who know not only how dearly that freedom was purchased but, if once lost, how difficult would be its recovery; and when such a soldiery is once made to distrust its leadership, and to re gard its commanders, either in the field or in the cabinet, as despots who are willing to sac rifice their freedom,their interests and their life to establish a mere fanatical whim, the conse quences must lie fearful, lie who needlessly sows the seeds of discontent in the minds of auch a soldiery, if a patriot, must have very atrange and inexplicable ideas of patriotism,— ideas which the people will find it difficult to reconcile with their own high sense of duty to the country in the hour of its greatest peril. By reading the whole article from which the above extract is taken, and which is entitled “The next Step,’’ it will be seen shat the peo ple are invoked to make their power felt through tile iiallot-box, in order to head off the President, unless he abandons and hacks down from his proposed war policy of emancipation. The President and “his most jiorverse advis es"—the Cabinet—are to be headed off as dan gerous “conductors of the war;" and if this apjienl to the ballot-box should prove unavail ng, it is not difficult to foresee what is to lie the “next step.” The cartridge-box is and of necessity must be, the next appellate tribunal; and we need not sjiend words or waste paper to satisfy intelligent readers that the shortest method to prejiare the soldiers to make the fearful appeal to tiiis tribunal, agaiusl the con stitutional head of the government, is to make them believe in the imbecility of that head, and in its purpose to “sacrifice them to an ol igarchy of fanaticism." We cannot dismiss this subject without call ing sjiecial attention to the leading b/ca,some what obscurely expressed, in the above ex tract. It says—the italics and capitals are ours, used to give emphasis to the idea refer red to: Let them [the jieopie] through the ballot box, accomplish \chat get has not been ac complished through their armies,the salva tion or the Union as it was, and the Constitution as it is. In this direction now ALL OUK HOPES TURN,more than upon u ruptured Cabinet,” Ac. What is the great idea here enunciated ? It is this—tliut all hojies of restoring the Uuiou and the Constitution through the agency of the army, is at an end, for ALL our hopes NOW turn (since the emancipation proclama tion) to the ballot-box. Henceforth the army power is ui oe against me slave power or '.lie rebels, and, therefore, an appeal is to be taken to the ballot box. And what does this mean? Does the intelligent editor of the Advertiser think to stultify his readers by making them believe the rebellion can la; put down by a mere vote of the people; a mere decision of the ballot box ? Having inaugurated the re bellion because of the voice uttered through the ballot box on the 7th of November, lsdo. does he mean to say to intelligent men that the rebels will now be persuaded or forced to re turn to their allegiance by any voice that can be uttered through the same channel? He surely does not mean that. What, then, does he mean ? He means tills, for lie can mean nothing short—that the people, through the l>allot box, should send to Congress a class of men who icitl offer to the armed rebels and traitors sueM phopositioss fob peace as they WILL ACCEPT. lie means COMPRO MISE WITH ARMED REBELLION. He means GUARANTIES TO SLAVERY which shatl secure it as it was. He means overtures that shall satisfy Jeff Davis, and give the am plest protection to those who have been stale bing at the heart of popular liberty itself. lie no uns this, and nothing less than this. In no way can the ballot-box secure a speedy peace, such as the arjny has not been aide to conquer, but by returning to the House such men as Vallandigham, and Hen. Wood; and to the Senate such as Jcmsc 1). Height, and F. O. J. Smith, who will, by refusal to rote appropria tions, “say to him [the President] and Ids most perverse advisers, ‘thus far shall Utou come, and no farther;” and who will get down on their knees before the slave-power of the South, receive commissioners from Jctf Davis, or send commissioners to him, and solicit the offer or acceptance of terms of reconciliation, which shall be satisfactory to the rebel hordes, and which shall strengthen slavery on this conti nent for all the purposes of political domina tion or aggression, in the same ratio that a free people w ould lie disgraced, humiliated, w eak ened, and despised! This, and nothing less than this, is involved in the proposition to set tle, through the ballot-box, a problem which, as yet, the army has been unable to solve—the restoration of the Union as it was, ami of the Constitution as it is. The editor of the Ad vert i-i'V is determined—having failed to securi a'changed Union through an amended Const i tution, that would exalt slavery to still highe dominion—to restore the Union as it icox which he despairs of doing through the army with emancipation as an ol(ject; for the Unioi tJmx restored w ill be a Union without slaves • which to his mind is as undesirable ami as im practicable as a corporation without money, 01 ' a church without a Bible. The truth is, the Advertiser has liecome tin rampant defender of negro slavery; the chain pion of southern rights. Its editor is mad al everything that savors of opposition to hii cherished idol. He is, day after day, uttering sentiments of the most dangerous practical tendency; and in die article, of which the above extract is the conclusion, he goes to tin length of encouraging rebellion—we think ol invoking military intervention and despotism— to preserve liis favorite divine institution from that inevitable destiny to which God seems tc have doomed it. Prof. Parsons on the Proclamation. Prof. Theophilus Parsons, of the Harvard Law School, is probably as good authority on questions of Common or of International Law, or the Laws of Belligerents, as any man in Am erica. He is a conservative, never has favored abolition, and therefore liis views are not pre sumed to be influenced in favor of the legality of tile proclamation by any )>olitical predilections. He lias written a communication to the Bos tou Daily Advertiser, and we make the follow ing extracts, which will lie found to give forth a very different ring from the leading articles which have recently appeared in the Advertis er’s namesake in this city: “Some persons denounce the President’s proclamation as unconstitutional; and t his word exerts and should exert great influence.— 1 suppose it certain that he has no |>ower to emancipate slaves as a civil act; that he has a constitutional power to do this as a military act, grounded on a military necessity ; that the Comiiiander-in-Ctiief of our army must have the right to judge of the existence and the force of this necessity. It follows, that if he has erred it was not by the assumption of a power he did not rightfully possess, tint in the exercise of a right that belonged to him. 1 am not an abolitionist. 1 did not expect or desire this measure, nor do I see its neces sity. But why should I not defer to the judg ment of the President ? it was liis duty to form and to act upon this judgment. He has acted under pleasure, but it was a pressure on both sides, lie knows all (lie facts upon which I could form an opinion, and many w hich I do not. He must know Later than I tois oira »»» on MII1 drance in the work he has to do. And lie must know better than I can whether such a meas ure was necessary to arrest impending and important (>eril from abroad. Would it not lie very foolish to suppose the judgment of one who had only my means of judgment, likely to lie wiser than that of one who lias the means which the President possesses? A short time may determine whether this nation is to live or die. And the influence of this war and of its result may lie as hroad as the world and as lasting as time. And how much we are doing which, in its greatness, is worthy of the hour! We arc pouring out our best blood like water. Some of us—how many! —ofler up our sons and send them to the batile with a smile, and when they die, bury them almost without a tear. Can we not sacrifice our prejudice* and our pa-sious, our cherished opinions, our partizan habits and associations, and even the assertions and declarations to which we stand committed? Must not these sacrifices be made unless we are willing that all other sacrifices should be unavailable? Is our patriotism no longer patriotism when it demands—not money, lor that we are ready to give—not effort, for that we are willing to make—not blood and life, for these we are |>onring out;—but submission—simple, honest, real submission, to constituted authority? For myself, I have now no polities, and de sire to have none, but the purpose of sustain ing my country, and therefore its government, in every way that 1 ran, and with the whole of the little strength I possess. From our Regular Correspondent. Letter from the State Capital, AVtr Judge*—Time of domination—Excur sion — President's Proclamation — Col. Lakemun—Appointmenta. Augusta, Oct. i, 1802. Editors Press:—The Executive Council, now in session, are busily at work upon mat ters which properly come before them. Two Judges of the Supreme Court are to be ap pointed this session, the terms of Chief Jus tice Tenney and Judge Goodenow expiring oti the 23d of this month. The nominations will be made by the Governor on the loth in stant. There is a grand excursion to-day to Camp Keyes from Bath and intermediate places. The troops are to be reviewed by the Gover nor ami Stall', and a salute tired. An address is expected from Gov. Washburn. The President’s proclamation is received here with very general favor and rejoicing. It is believed that a great step lias becu taken in civilization and human progress. The clouds are lifting: the day is at hand! True, some tender-fosted ones among us, and some who, at heart, really sympathize with aeces ■ion, feign to see ominous horror foreshad owed, and to believe that the Kepublic can never lie reconstructed, because the proclama tion takes away the constitutional rights of the reliels! Such desponding patriots are re spectfully referred for consolation to the poet Cowper: “Ye fearful souls, fresh courage take, The cloud* you so much dread Are bhf with mercy, and will break, In bk’Mdnx* ou your head.” 1 lie promotion of ( apt. l.aketnan, of the :M Regiment, to the Lieutenant Colonelcy, men tioned in my last, is one most eminently lit to lie made. Col. Lakcman went out as captain of one of the Augusta companies at the com mencement of the war, and has repeatedly dis tinguished himself while in service, and uni formly secured the esteem and admiration of his superior officers, both of the regiment and of the brigade, for laitiifulness in the discharge of duty and great bravery in battle. Col. Lakcman has had no powerful friends at court to obtain his promotion, and he lias never asked for it. lie lias rai ned it, and it has been given to him for his dexertr. As would be inferred from my last. Col. Wildes of the ltith Regiment lias resigned. The following appointments have been made since my last:—Co. II, 2d Regiment—Edward L. Getchell, Bangor,Captain: Halpli W. Morse, Bangor, 1st Lieutenant; and Daniel Qtiimby, Bangor, 2d Lieutenant. Co. F,2d Regiment— W arren II. Boynton, Bangor, 1st Lieutenant; anil Arthur C. Whitcomb, Hampden, 2d l.ieu tenant. Skiiimisiiek. The Effect of thkI’koci.amathin.—By the 1st of next January, should the rebellion continue, there will be virtually emancipated, according to the census of I860, not less than three million, four hundred thousand slaves, distributed as follows: Alabama, 435,132 Arkansas, 111. 1H4 Florida, 61,753 Georgia, 462,232 I Louisiana, 333,010 Mississippi, 436.606 North Carolina, 331,081 : South Carolina, 402,541 Tennessee, 275,784 Texas, iso,682 Eastern Virginia, 375,000 Total 3,405,015 The natural increase will probably make the aggregate at the present time about 3,500,000. Sy^Tlie New York papers publish the mar I riage of R. II. Newell, to Miss Ada Isaacs i Menken. The Poughkeepsie Press says,— I “Poor fellow, we pity him.” A Worthy Subject lor Promotion. In connection with Ilailcck's recommenda tion to till the vacancies in the army with those w ho have distinguished themselves on the baltle-Ileld, the following extract from a private letter from an officer of the 10th Maine, written just after the battle of Antietam, is not without in (ere.sf. file brave Sergeant he speaks of is one of four brothers, all in the Union army: “Returning to the field, after bearing Gen. Mansfield off I met Sergeant George Smith, ol my company, with an ugly wound in neck and check. I helped him a lew steps, and then set him down and sent a man after my horse to put him on He was not badly hurt, and I left him and hastened back to the battle-field, where 1 learned that we had been relieved and gone to the rear. Learning where Ranks’ hospital was, L took Sergeant Smith there, and commenced wash ing his wounds. I have an admiration for these I wo Smith boys (botii Sergeants now) which amounts to an enthusiasm—so active, Intelligent, and brave toa fault. Sergt. Smith’s wound was an ugly one, hut not in the least dangerous. After dressing it and making him comfortable, anxious to learn the fate of our regiment, 1 went up to where 1 understood it was collecting, to get statistics. I could hear nothing of the other Smith. I have found him now. He recollected our skedaddle at \\ inchester and ill-luck at Slaughter Mountain, and when our regiment was ordered to cease firing, he fell in with the 2Sth Pennsylvania, Geary's old regiment, and went on with them, driving the rebels, who could not withstand the reinforcement. He begged a hunch of cartridges of them after his fifty had given out, and when the 28th were relieved by the 5th Ohio, he fell into their ranks, and on lie went over the long corn-field, over the fence, and into the woods; and here the rebels were reinforced, and drove our forces half way back, lie tagged ten rounds of the Ohio boys, and so tired seventy rounds in all. His own gun became foul, and lie threw it away. It made me feel ashamed of myself to think I had gone to the rear even to assist one so good as Gen. Mansfield, while 1 was an officer over so brave a fellow as Sergt. Henry Smith. He bad not received a scratch, and when I saw him he looked contented with his day’s work.” * By Express tills morning, the following cases were forwarded to the Sanitary Com missioners : One case from New Sharon; one from An vim- ii'Mil rniuig; une iroiu Norway; one from Lewiston; one from Warren; one from Bangor; one from .Saugerville; one from Weld; two from Pownal; one from No. Liinington; one from G orham, Maine, forCnpt.

It is only necessary to refer to the Dr.'s programme for Friday night, aud to say that each exhibition lias been an improvement upon its predecessor, to in sure a crowd. When the editor of the Advertiser penned this sentence: ‘*Because the Advertiser lias urged the country to stand squarely by the C'onstitutiou, the hallowed charter of our liberties, the Press denounces us as guilty of treason,” he knew that he was framing just as bald a falsehood as he was when, in the same article, he represented the New York Tribune | to have proposed a compromise witli the rebels. A man who, with the facts before his eyes as -j vv.vtL vuv .iiimtiaci a, nuimi ill.live either statement, must act upon the principle of the French diplomatist, that the design of words is to conceal not only ideas but the truth. 3y”The Argus says ot Lieut. CoL Prentice, who was mortally wounded in the battle before Augusta, Ky., “he fell bravely lighting for the (lag his patriotic father has defended to his Iiest from the rebels of the South and the abo lition fanatics of the North." We have for some time supposed the Argus could see won derful Is auty ill the flag for which Lieut Col.

It takes all of six months for a truth to get through the hair of the present race of democratic editors, especially when it tallies against them. Explanatory.—Commissioner Boutwell has written a letter to Hon. Charles Hudson, one of tlie Internal Revenue Assessors in Mas sachusetts, In which he says that fanners can sell the products of their own farms without a license. He qualities the language of former instruction—see lirst page of this paper to day—as follows: A dealer who sells a barrel of Hour, piece of goods, or other original package, to the con sumer, is not considered a wholesale dealer, or obliged to Like license ius such. .Selling goods in original packages to dealers, to lie sold again, constitutes a wholesale dealer.

The Fate or Slavery.—The Ilaltiinore American, which does not consider the issuing of tlie emancipation proclamation a judicious movement, says, nevertheless: “For all the evils of war which curse the laud, it must be remembered that slavery avows its responsibility. It proudly claims it —as we have said—and let noue marvel, there fore, at seeing blows dealt it wherever they may seem effective. Tlie time for trifling is past; and whilst men may speculate profound ly oil primary cause and effect, on what this or that clause of the Constitution may permit in dealing with men who defy it altogether, slavery is being pusRed to the wall to perish there. As we have long since shown, it did not perish in a legitimate manner in Mexico, but it perished as the consequence of revolu tion, and so it is destined to perish here.

He was wounded in the foot a few weeks ago in the battle in Kentucky, when Kirby Smith defeated our forces and drove them back to Cincinnati. He was appointed a few days ago to the chief command at Louisville. He was rough, energetic, somewhat blustering ami noisy, more of a tighter than of a general.

Colonel Vance, the new Governor of North Carolina, delivered Ills inaugural at Kalcigli on the 8lh ult. It is moderate in tone generally, though when speaking of the treatment re ceived by the North Carolina troops at the bands of the rebel government, his language is quite bitter and sarcastic. Washington correspondents state that the declaration of Secretary Seward to England, concerning letters of marque, causes a sensa tion among the representatives of foreign (low ers. They regard it tantamount to an official recognition of the relicts as bcligerents. The same correspondence states that intelligence has been received that lo.OOO tons of iron for plating vessels are on the way from England lo the South.
