Monday Morning, <tel. 20, 1802.
Unpardonable abuse of Gen. McClellan.
If Gen. McClellan is, as we have ever believ
ed and contended, an honest and loyal man,
then no one has more reason than he to ex
claim, “Sate me from my friends!" More
indiscreet friends, to use the mildest ex
pression, no man has ever had since Sampson
listened to the mischievous suggestions of his
loved Delilah.
The true friends of Gen. McClellan must
feel anxious to keep the confidence of the
American people in his unconditional loyalty,
and uncompromising opposition and hostility
to disunion, unimpaired. The moment the
people lose confidence in this regard, and arc
led to believe that the Commanding General
even secretly favors a separation of these
States, a breaking up of the Union, and a sub
mission to the demands of rebellion, that mo
tncut his influence for good will he destroyed,
and the love now generously bestowed upon
him will be exchanged for the intenscst hatred;
and instead of being looked upon as a friend
and savior of the country, he will be loathed
as the enemy and betrayer of Liberty, and of
Liberty's free institutions.
And now what are the “friends”—the friends
par excellence—of Con. McClellan doing for
his reputation with the people? What are
they doing to make the American people con
fide In him as a trust-worthy commander, in
whose keeping the ark of our political cove
nant is sale? First and foremost, without
right, and as we contend, without authority,
. and against every consideration of propriety
and fairness, they are trying to make of him a
party idol; to hold him up before trie people,
not os a Union-loving, patriotic, American
General, but a politician, a partizan, and an
opponent of the very President who holds him
in power, and of the very Cabinet, without
whose advice the President is presumed to
make no important moves upon trie great
chess-board of war. He is not only thus
■ought to lie arrayed against the constitu
ional authorities of the land, but his unwise if
not wicked friends,—Heaven save the mark !
—are industrious in claiming that lie is wedded
to the schemes ol democratic politicians, and is
to be the instrument by which their party
furtnnoa a cat rii lui pnuuiouil un/1 tli/.ir pualui'.i.
tiou to power is to be secured. But this is not
all; nor is it the worst of it.
If Gen. McClellan could be left in a position
of simply doubtful loyalty to the Union, there
might be hundreds of thousands whose confi
dence in the man and officer would repel the
doubts, and cordially ding to a faith in his un
compromising devotion to his country, his
whole country, and nothing less than his whole
country. Blit there is a class of men who—
disunionists at heart themselves—seem deter
mined to destroy all faith in the commanding
General’s loyalty, and to prove beyond cavil
that he, too, at heart is in favor of dismember
ing our Republic aud dwarfing its fair propor
tions. Are we called upon for proof of this ?
It shall lie forth-coming.
A paper in this city—one which has laid
special claims to being the friend of McClel
lan, aud has been particularly malignant
against the Press, because in its columns a|>
peared, from the pen of a correspondent, a se
vere criticism upon the conduct of the army—
says, in the most emphatic terms, that the
views enunciated by the recent great meeting
of the democrats at Cooper Institute, New
York, had the endorsement of Gen. McClel
lan. The language of the paper referred to, is
as follows:
“The Tories in Council.”—The greatest
political mass meefiug ever held in New York
city, was the meeting of last Monday evening
for the rat ideation of the nomination of Hora
tio Seymour. It was immense. The account
given of this meeting by the New York Times,
is headed—“The Tories in. Council.” Now
these tories are made up of such men as Mil
lard Fillmore, Gen. Scott, Col. Corcoran, Gen.
McClellan, <tc., dee., all of whom, if not pres
ent, endorse the views enunciated.
Now we say that a more unkind act cannot
be done to Gen. McClellan, if he is loyal to the
Union of these States, than to hold him up as
an endorser of the views enunciated by that
Cooper Institute meeting. What were the
views there enunciated ?
Before giving a direct answer to this ques
tion, allow us to refer to a few positions taken
by leaders of the present Democratic organiza
tion, in and out of New York, to show how
they stand on the general question of loyalty
to the Union.
John Pettit of Indiana, late Chief Justice of
Kansas, under Buchanan, recently proffered
_1 . J .1. .1!.! _ t . .
binge* lilt support of the government:
If Old Abe will come to me, I’ll tell him how
to stop this rebellion. Extend slavery over
every State iu the Union, and the rebellion
will be stopped in sixty days.
Only last April, C. L. Vallandigham, recent
ly run for Congress by the democrats of his
district in Ohio, wrote as follows to a friend:
I shall take the first favorable opportunity to
move for a peaceful separation.
In an “Address to the Democracy of Penn
sylvania,] net prior to the late election, Fran
cis W. Hughes, Chairman of the State Com
mittee, alter urging compromises with the
rebel States, and submission to their terms for
preserving the Union, upon the presumptiou
that the Union may not be thus maintained,
and that division will come, considers the
question which section his State should become
attached to, and to show that it would be for
her Interest to join the Southern Confederacy
be goes on to state that—
She may, if a member of the new confedera
cy, become the great manufacturing workshop
of a people now consuming annually $800,000,
000 worth of products and manufactures from
or uow imported through the northern States.
In this way, continues Mr. Hughes, Iter
(Pennsylvania's) wealth and glory will “be
promoted in u degree unparalleled iu the histo
ry and prosperity of any people!”
Mr. James S. Thayer, then a leader of De
mocracy, uow a Seyinoutite, iu a speech in
Albany, Jau. 31,1861, said:
“The Democratic and Union party at the
North made the issue at the last election with
the Kepublican party, that, iu the event of
their success, and the establishment of their
policy, the Southern States not only would go
out of the Union, but would have ade
quate CAUSE fob Doinu so. (Applause.)
This is the position 1 took with 813,080 vot
er* in the State of New York, outlie Othof No
vember lust. I shall notyecede from it, hav
ing admitted that, iu a certain contingency,
the slave States would have just and adequate
cause for separation! Now that the contin
gency has happened. I shall not withdraw that
admission, because they have been unwise or
unreasonable in the time, mode, and measure
of redress.” (Applause.)
And he goes on to say that they would “say
to our people” “that the Union must lie pre
served. But if that cannot be, what then?
Peaceable Sepahation !” All tills was
enthusiastically applauded.
Mr. Seymour himself, iu whose honor the
great meeting in New York was recently held,
has put himself upon record on the great ques
tion under consideration. In a speech in Jan.
1861, alter the secession of several of the cot
ton States, Mr. Seymour Said:
Let us also see if successful coercion by the
North is less revolutionary than successful se
cession by the South.
In another speech, just before the fall elec
tions of last year, Mr. Seymour said:
If it l>e true that slavery must be abolished
to save the Union, then the people, qf the
South should he allotted to withdraw them
selves from the Government, which cannot
give them the protection guaranteed by the
At tlie late Democratic State Convention in
Mass., Gen. James S. Whitney was one of the ;
leading speakers. Whitney was elected as a j
Douglas man to the Charleston Convention, '
but, by tlie sop of the Boston Collectorship,
be became the pliant tool of Buchanan, Cobb,
«S: Co., went to Charleston, and there, proving
treacherous to the men to whom lie was in- |
debted for his credentials to that body, be
came one of the leading conspiritors in that
Convention, and in its continuation at Balti- !
more was one of the bolters that nominated I
the traitor Breckinridge, and lie has stuck to
his integrity with a wonderful pertinacity. In
his speech at Worcester, the other day, he
elaborated the idea of “compromise” with tlie |
rebels "at the proper time”—which means the
time when tlie most party capital can lie made
out of it—and no part of his speech elicited
more enthusiastic applause than tile portion in I
which he proposed to “invite our brothers to j
sit down’and talk over this quarrel with us”; j
those brothers) 1) whose fraternal feelings are
so truthfully described in the speech of the •
gallant Gen. Prentiss, who has just returned
from a rebel prison, and whose speeeli lias j
already been given in our telegraphic columns; !
those brothers who were so fraternal with the \
gallant Corcoran, and who have betrayed a
ferocity and a barbarity that would cause a
blush in a conclave of demons.
Now It is the schemes, and the disloyal
views of such men as we have quoted, that
certain politicians would make Gen. McClel
lan endorse. lie who needs, to be successful,
tlie fullest measure of confidence reposed in
him, is put forth as a sympathizer in such di
abolical schemes. Surely, he may exclaim, ;
“Save me from such friends!”
But to show precisely what kind of views
were enunciated by the recent New York
meeting, which the Advertiser says were “en- |
dorsed” by Gen. McClellan, we have only to
refer to two facts.
l»t.—lu that very meeting John Van Buren
was a leading speaker. lie took the distinct
and emphatic ground that the war should be
prosecuted no further than tlie capture of
Richmond; that then we should compromise
w itn the reliefs in arms, either by amending
tlie Constitution to suit them, or by letting the
South go out of the Union!
i ms was one oi mu -views mere enunciated
by a leading spirit in the meeting,cheered and I
applauded to tiie echo, and it is such a "view”
that the Advertiser says Gen. McClellan “eu
I dorses.”
2d.—In that meeting was produced an old
letter of Gen. Scott's, written forty days be
fore the fall of Sumter, which was read by
Mr. Van Burcn, which was cheered and re- i
ccived w ith all the usual marks of approbation,
and which was sent over the country by tele- ;
graph as a part of the proceedings. By the i
mode of its introduction, its reception and its j
transmission to the couutry, that letter is
show u to have been endorsed by the meeting,
to have been adopted as its own expression,
and thus it becomes a portion of the “views
there enunciated,” and which Gen. McClellan
is said to “endorse.”
Now ichat says that letterf It recommends
four ways, one of which the writer would
have the President adopt,as the only means of
securing peace, and averting a war. The first
contemplated compromise, and in default of
i this, the Gen. predicted a condition of things
in sixty days which has not yet transpired:—
the secession ol all the slave states, and the
consequent inclusion of the federal capitai “ in
a foreign country.” 2d. The collection of du
ties outside the seceded ports, or their block
ade—which latter alternative has long since
] been done, but without closing the war as
Scott supposed it would at the time of writing
his letter. 3d. Conquest of the South at vast
sacrifice of blood and treasure, w ithout doing
any good, but only to “ devastate fifteen pro
vinces,” to be held only by heavy garrisons at
vast expeuse, “ followed by a Protector or Em
Here are three of Gen. Scott's propositions,
neither of which the New York meeting was
silly enough to suppose practicable now;—
neither of which, in the light of history, could
they suppose were ever practicable. What
was the fourth proposition? We ^ive it with
out abridgement:—
IV. Say to the Seceded States. WAY
Here in these brief ten words, is wrapped
up the germ which John Van Buren and his
coadjutors in Cooper Institute, were trying to
warm and nourish and develope into a vigor
ous plant. Peace and separation—peace and
disuniou, as an alternative, is the “ view”— :
the great “ view enunciated there,” in that i
“immense” meeting, and it was this “view” i
that called forth the plaudits of that throng, !
and caused the alcoves to return their echoes
| sonuhle atmosphere of the place; ami it is
such a “ view" of which the l'ortlaml Adver- j
tiser makes Gen. McClellan the endorser !— j
Surely, the commanding General, should he
lqg.ru the facts, may exclaim, “Save me from
such a friend!”
But this article is already unnecessarily long,
and we must stop. We do so by protesting |
against the injustice done to the Commander !
of the Potomac. We do not believe he is a j
partisan politician. \V* do not believe he en
dorses treason: and disunion is treason. We
don’t believe he favors a separation of the
States. Did he endorse the view’s enunciat
ed by the meeting referred to, he would lie un
worthy tile contldence now reposed in him, for
lie would be no more nor less than a disunion
ist, and us such would be unsulted to lead the
armies of the Union. Again we protest against
this unpardonable abuse of Geu. McClellan.
The 17th Maine iu Motion.
We have received information from hii offi
cer in the 17tli Maine that, in obedience to or
ders received on Friday evening, 10th inst, !
they broke camp near Upton’s Hill, on Satur
dar morning, at 2 o’clock. Gen. Berry being
confined by sickuess, the brigade, composed of '
the 1st, 37th, and 55th New York, the 2d, 3d, i
' and 5tli Michigan, ami the 17th Maine, with
one volunteer battery, was commanded by
Col. Cox, of the 2d Michigan, acting Briga- ;
' dier. They started at 0o'clock in the morn
ing, and marched 22 miles, and halted at 5
o'clock P. M., in a piece of woods near Sene
ca Creek, in Montgomery county, Md., where
they camped for the night. The 17th stood
| the march quite as well as any of the old reg
: intents. Not a man of Co. A fell out of the
| ranks during the march.
On Sunday they started at 6 o’clock,and af
ter marching 10 miles they met the loth Ver
mont, who reported a band of rebel cavalry in
tile vicinity. They were then drawn up in
j line, and the battery placed on an eminence
ready for an attack. Alter waiting awhile
they advanced to Seneca Mills, ami thence to
i within hull a mile of Edward's Ferry, where
I they encamped for the night, near the river.—
| It rained heavily during the night, and some ol
; our boys were forced to tax their ingenuity to
| make themselves comfortable.
On Monday morning they took up the line
of march, moving past Edward's Ferry, a short
■ distance, about three miles below Balls Bluff.
llete they encamped again, though withont
tents, except such as the boys improvised with
their rubber blankets. On Tuesday they
received marching orders again though ig
norant of their destination. They were in good
spirits eager to be led forward to the scene of
ot strife, and resolved to play the man.
The friends of the 17th w ill he glad to learn
that their friends are associated with so many
older regiments, and have commenced the
wearisome campaign w ith so much spirit and
fortitude. We shall expect them to give a
good account of themselves.

Dear Sra: — 1 hasten to give you the re
sult of my day’s labor which you will, X have
no doubt, be very pleased to see.
I arrived in the city in good time—called on
Col. Frank E. Howe, Superintendent “New
England Soldiers Relief Association,” w ho ren
dered me very efficient service by his prompt
ness to all my inquiries. Ill him X found the
right man in the right place. His ready wil
lingness coupled with that of his efficient corps
of clerks, has won my esteem. Kindness is
dealt out to every one alike who enters their
rooms, and if there is any bestowal of extra
urbanity, it is given to the sick soldiers. Ev
erything is done to render them comfortable
during their stay at the Association rooms, and
all assistance is rendered that could he de
sired to aid them in reaching their several
homes, and, let me add. that the institution
will long he remembered by thousands whose
hearts have been made glad by the kindness
that has been bestowed to them. I received
from the office all desired information in regard
to our sick, and also the locations of the dif
ferent hospitals in this vicinity. On examina
tion X timl there arc not many Maine soldiers
in the hospitals here. There are none of our
men very sick ; general debility, diarrhoea and
rheumatism seem to be the prevailing diseases.
A small detachment or rather squad of con
valescents belonging to the 7th arrived in town
this morning. X rendered such assistance us
was necessary for them to have, that they
might arrive at Portland in due time. Col.
How'e provided them subsistence to Boston,
and they were furnished with a requisition for
transportation from Boston to Portland on
Capt. MeKim, Assistant Quartermaster U. S.
A., by Col. Tompkins. There is a marked
improvement ill the general management of
the hospitals, and they are much better con
ducted than they were some little time ago;
tue sick are provided with better food and
treated w ith touch more kindness. I trust ere
long that the sick soldier will be treated with
respect by the surgeons who have charge of

mous “Address to the People of the State.”
When tile rebellion culminated in war upon
our common flag, Mr. Dickerson no longer
knew any party obligations, but gave all his
energies to the loyal cause, and, like that oid
war-horse in New York, Daniel S. Dickinson
who was also a Breckiuridge democrat, he
came corcially up to the support of the State
and National administrations iu their conflict
with rebellion.
The Advertiser of this city makes the fol
lowing fling at him:
“Dili the Governor appoint Dickerson for
Ids views upon the Died Scott decision, (and
they were such as to suit Jeff. Davis:) for we
believe this to he tile last legal question upon
which the new Judge hits publicly displayed his
legal ability. What says the Press ?”
It is unnecessary that the Press should reply
to this intimation that Mr. Dickerson is in
favor of the class of constitutional interpreta
tions adopted by Jeff. Davis and F. O. J. S.,
for a former neighbor, townsman and business
partner of Mr. Dickerson, lias done this in the
Argus, as follows:
“Tile associates are powerfully in favor of
einaucipation, confiscation, negro arming,amal

say but, on the bench, they will be able, and

Dr. Bellows on President Lincoln.
Rev. Ur. Bellows, at tlie annual Autumnal
Convention ol the Unitarians recently in

discourse, in which he treated to some extent
of our national troubles. He spoke of Presi
dent I.ineotn as follows:
“Give the unbounded support of the people
to the President, lie deserves it. A consci
entious, sagacious and humane man, anxious
to do his duty, exercised with greater trials
than any man in the nation—a solitary man in
his undivided responsibility,who has earned the
confidence and lave of the American people,
and who ought to be regarded not merely as
the lour yeais' 1’resident of a party, but as the
Abraham of a new dispensation. I know that
his gentleness lias been mistaken lor indecis
ion, his contempt lor pomp a lack of official
dignity, and Ids patience and pondering pru
dence for inability to appreciate the crisis.—
These inisj udgineuts are not shared by those
who know him nearest and best.
Beneath all the playfulness of his mind burns
a solemn earnestness of patriotism; amid his
prudence u great courage; in all his gentle
ness and compliance a determined grasp of the
reins, and a tlruiness not inferior to Gen. Jack
son's, though without its paasion and caprice.
I hold him to be a w fce, true, sagacious, earn
est and formidable leader. I wish he were
seconded by his Cabinet or his Generals as lie
should be. The country must rally round him
and see that he is—see to it that he assimilates
his servants to himself, and makes the govern
ment do and be—w hat the nation, the people,
A Singular Case.—About eleven years
ago an orphan boy two years of age was plac
ed in a laiuily iu Sew Gloucester. In that
family lie has, until withiu a short time, resid
ed, and they had become attached to him as
oue of their own children. A short time since
the boy visited his brother in Boston, and the
latter determined to keep him. The father of
the family iu which for eleven years lie had
been brought up, went to Boston, took the
boy and returned to New Gloucester with him.
Tile brother of the boy immediately applied
for a requisition from the Governor of Massa
chusetts for the arrest of the limn who had
taken him away. This was obtained and plac
ed iu tlic bauds of otlicer Heath of the Bostou
police, who came to this city last week and
placed the matter iu the hands of our City
Marshal. Deputy Marshal Heaiil aud ohirer
Barr went to New Gloucester Friday, arrested
the man and brought the boy down as a wit
uess. Alter arriving here the matter was set
tled by the giving up of the boy to his brother,
and the withdrawal of the action for abduc
tion. It would seem that lie who had brought

jy The meeting in behalf of the Sanitary
Commission, which we gave notice in Satur
day’s issue would l>e held at the City Hall on
Sunday evening, did not come off. The fol
lowing note from Mr. Hadley to the Courier
of Saturday evening, which we have been re
quested to publish, explains the reson why the
meeting was not held:
Postponement.—When the notice for the
meeting for tin: bene lit of the Sanitary Com
mission was given by mo, with the approbation
of others, it was under the impression that, as’
the new City llall was not otherwise occupied
on Sunday evening, there could be no possible
objection toils living employed for so Imly and
benevolent an end as soliciting aid for the sick
and wounded of our army, it was also judged
must proper to hold the meeting at this time,
iu older to secure the valuable aid of Mr.Train,
w bo, in a very warm-hearted mauner intimated
his willingness to assist me. As 1 liud that the
temporary authorities in eiiarge of the Hull
refuse its use, on the ground of detecratiun
uf the Sabbath, aud it is late to make other
arrangements, 1 am reluctantly compelled to
deler the meeting. At some future time, tile
claims aud needs of the Commission will be
preseuted to the citizens of Portland.

Rumors of Peace Propositions.—Gunboats in
Pursuit of the Alabama.-—Illness of
Gon. Howard.
New York, Oct. 18.
The Herald's Washington dispatch says tiie
impression prevails here that there is some
truth in the rumor that while in Maryland, the
rebel General Lee forwarded to this govern
ment overtures for peace, which leading South
ern men believed would be accepted.
If such a proposition was made, there is no
doubt it was declined by tiie Federal govern
It is believed at the Navy Department that
several of our gunboats are in pursuit of tiie
rebel steamer Alabama. This vessel has never
i>een in American waters, but only in British
waters or upon the high seas. This fact may
lead to reclamations by our government upon
that of Great Britain, for acts of a vessel that
has no stamp of nationality other than British.
The Tunes'dispatch says the government is
preparing a remonstrance addressed to the
rebel authorities on the subject of their infa
mous treatment of our prisoners of war.
The Tribune’s Harper's Ferry dispatch of
the 17th says: Brig. Gen. Howard, who is
prostrated by fever, leaves this morning Ibr his
home in Maine. In bis absence Gen. Gorman,
the ranking Brigadier, commands his division.
