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

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

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
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.

Letter from the State Capital,
AVtr Judge*—Time of domination—Excur
sion — President's Proclamation — Col.
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
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
“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.

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.” *

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

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.

Explanatory.—Commissioner Boutwell
has written a letter to Hon. Charles Hudson,
one of tlie Internal Revenue Assessors in Mas

sell the products of their own farms without a

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.

N. Feloh, Ks.|„ the proprietor and publisher
of the Evening Courier, after being coiitlueil
to his house in Hollis, for a long time by a
painful rheumatic affection, has so far recover
ed as to lie able to visit the city,and once more
give iiis personal attention to the business of
his office. In his absence the business of the
office has la>en attended to and the paper eon
dueted by Mr. 11. C. Johnson, formerly ol the
Lewiston Herald.
"iL" On the first page will be found an im
portant article relating to the collection of the
national taxes. The Commissioner has decid
ed that "Grocers selling flour by the barrel, or
salt by the sack, or any other article in the j
original puckrtye, are reckoned as wholesale
dealers.” Then not only all our small grocers
arc wholesale dealers, but equally so is the
man who sells a can of mustard, or a quarter
gross of matches, or a pound of ground coffee,
lor all these ure in original packages.
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. Its
fate—as matters tend—will be told in the
words of another revolutionist to those who
would vindicate its past prerogatives: ‘Will
you never forego argument with men who
wear meords V ”
The Louisville Tragedy.—(Jen. Nelson,
who was killed, was a lieutenant in the navy
when the war broke out. Supposing that he
could secure promotion more rapidly in the
army lie resigned his place in the navy. He
soon distinguished himself in eastern Ken
tucky. He was afterwards conspicuous in
Tennessee. 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.
He was a native of Kentucky and entered the
navy in 1840,
(4en. Jefferson C. Davis is a native of Indiana,
was a student at West Point, and entered the
service in 1848. He won special distinction
in Missouri, and at the battle of Pea Kldge.
He, too, excelled iu executing rather than in
planning.—[Providence Journal.
Washington Items.— When the time
comes, says the correspondent of the N. York
Commercial, the navy will gallantly perform
its allotted share of the work. There are
eighteen hundred men busily engaged at the
Washington Navy Yard, and such is the de
iwi .illiniumnon uuu vuwe m me oru
nance shops worked all day Sunday. The
bomb fleet, no longer deemed necessary to aid
in protecting Washington and in keeping Bal
timore quiet, will make itself manifest else
where before very long.
Troops are still pouring into the city, and
are marching over “ lo old Virginia's shore,”
where they are out of the way of the evil in
fluences of the city, and where Gen. Casey
will soon have them in working order.

Governor Vance of North Carolina.
New Yoke, Oct. 1.
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.
A special correspondent of the Times witli
the army of the Potomac, gives an account of
several ini|>ortunl recouuoUances into Virgin

Col. Farnsworth’s brigade of cavalry, ac
companied by two batteries, crossed the river
below Shepard'town, and rceounoitered the
country for a distance of five or six miles to
wards Winchester. A regiment of rebel cav
ahy was seen on the road from Shepardstown
to Martlusburg, but a collision did not take
Eli Thayer to be Governor of Florida.

with a view to enable Mr. Thayer, and those
who are acting with him. to carry out their
scheme for the introduction in the Southern
