Judge Holt on the War. Hon. Joseph Holt wrote the following letter to Collector Barney of New York, in response to an invitation to address a public meeting; but thought that it was too hastily writteu for publication. It is now published with his con tent: Washington, Oct. 25,1862. Bon. Biram Barney: Dear Sir,—Tour favor of the 22d inst. has becu received. An iuvitatiou similar to that which you so kindly urge upon me 1 have been obliged within a few days to decline, in conse quence of engagements here which occupy ev ery moment of my time, aud 1 must now make the same answer to yourself. There will doubtless be present with you on the occasion referred to, those capable by their eloquence of effecting all the good that popu lar addresses can now accomplish. I must b frank, however, aud say that to me it seems that what is at this moment needed is not words, however glowing, but heroic deeds. The tongue of an archangel could scarcely comfort aud animate the popular spirit in the presence of the inaction of the army. After au unparalleled expenditure of treasure, and the mursbaiiug of such armies as the world has never seen, aud after sacrifices which are cloth ing the laud in mourning, at the expiration of eighteen mouths front the commencement of the rebellion, we find it more defiant aud de termined, aud more successful in Its invasions and spoliations, than at any moment since the struggle began. This is from no lack of devo tion on the part of the people, who have pour ed out their blood aud treasure like water, nor vet from any lack of courage on the part of our brave volunteers. Our soldiers have been ev erywhere panting for a sight of the enemy, while the great heart of the country, in its sol emn and earnest solicitudes, is like a ground swell toward the battle-field. A sadened belief is rapidly spreading that, unless the present condition of things is changed, our cause will be lost An immediate, bold and aggressive move ment upon the enemy—following up every blow struck, aud gathering the fruits of every victory gained—is what Is required for our de liverance. To the accomplishment of this sin gle object the thoughts, efforts and the pray ers of the whole country should lie directed. If those who are in the front will not go for ward, the public safely will demand that they be assigned position in the rear. What are the sensibilities, what the reputation, or what tlie cherished schemes of any General in the field, as compared with the lile of such a gov ernment and country as ours? If, with the cloudless skies, and bracing airs, and fine roads of the Autumn, our vast and completely appointed army cannot do its work, when will it be able to do so? If Lee, Jackson and Long street can move w ith promptitude aud dashing celerity in the cause of treason and barbaric i vandalisim, why cannot our chieftains move as promptly and as fast in the cause of honor and loyalty ? How much longer will the nation endure that all its sacrifices be fruitless? Its VV/UdVUUU kuat ik puc.-'k.ocu.c, knivv. kviu, me power to subdue this rebellion, is not more complete than, in my judgment, will be its de termination that neither the follies nor the crimes of men shall render the power unarail ing. It is this torpor of our armies—this hope de- 1 ferred for the hundredth time—which has uu furled that party banuer, whose shadow is now resting on so many of the loyal States. It is not disloyalty which has prompted tlie deplor able movement, but a weariness and discour agement consequent upon the losses, humilia tions and delays we have suffered; yet it is the most alarming sign of the times, and can only be arrested by decided military successes. It is the law of the very existence of such politi cal organizations to seek strength by assaults upon tlie Administration in whose hands, for weal or woe, is the direction of those move ments upon which necessarily depend the pres ervation of the Uuiou. These assaults w ill : grow in vigor and bitterness as they progress and while thus indirectly affording “aid and, j comfort” to the rebellion, will make continous, albeit unconscious approaches toward an open affiliation with it. Let those who are called upon to vole a party ticket iu the midst of the tragic events now upon us, ponder well before doing so, tlie disastrous consequences of such a policy—a policy from whose baleful tendencies no purity of motive can possibly detract. Let them hasitate long before they bow the seeds of disseusions, whose bitter fruits may be, upon the lips of their children's child ren. Let them not forget that, by thus presen ting a divided front they degrade our cause be fore the world, they paralyze our own strength and add immeasurably to tlie hopes, tlie confi dence and the power of the enemy. Already the Confederate Press is pointing tlie deluded people of the South to these rising distractions among ourselves, in a tone not merely of hope fulness, but of exultation. Kf man, as a motive for such a course s that he has ground of complaint the President, let him take heed that hts ill-directed hostility does not put iu jeopar dy the Republic itself, for whose preservation from overthrow the President is incessantly and loyally laboring. What lias a controversy with tlie President of tlie Uniied States to do with the question of loyalty to our country in tlie midst of such a struggle as this ? It' lie errs—as tlie best of men are liable to do—he Is soon to pass away with all his deeds, but our Government and country should, and if we are true to them, they will endure for countless ages to come. The President, witli all the dignity and responsibilities belonging to his position, is but a pilot on the national ship for a single watch of the night. Who will lie so insane as to aid. however indirectly, iu scuttling the ship, merely because he has'a quarrel with tlie pilot, from whose hands tlie helm is soon to lie wrested? Who is willing that a savage shout, as of victory, shall go up j rom the army of ferocious rebels whose hands I are doubly dyed in the blood of our people ? Who is willing that a thrill of joy shall run throughout the entire South, and that bonHres and illuminations shall l>e kindled in the city of Kiehmond, over the triumph of the opposi tion in the great Empire State? If such there be, let him vote a party ticket- The occasion demands the development of the suhlimest phases of human character. If, with the du ties to our land and to our race which are pressing upon us, we cannot rise above a mis erable scramble for party spoils and [rower, then the sooner we creep into onr graves the better. Another danger which is threatened from the inaction of our armies comes from abroad, This rebellion is as ubiquitous in the curses it scatters, as it is foolish in its spirit. The con flict from our commercial and other relations concerns the happiness ol the civilized world. Foreign nations, with a forbearance that can not be too much commended, have, without interference, waited patiently, and given us every opportunity to subdue the rebellion.— Hut, unless some decisive military demonstra tion soon takes place, and the South is occu pied by our forces, these nations w ill conclude that we lack either the will or the power to re-establish the Luiou. « Already a memtfer of*11\e English .Cabinet, (Mr. Gladstone) has openly declared that “Da vis lias made a nation of the South”; and such an announcement, from such a source, cannot but be accepted as having a startling signifi cance. If the vast army in whoso presence, as it were, a half-l>eatcn army is leisurely de stroying one of the most important railroads of tiie loyal States, does not do its work speed ily, Euro|>eau governments must ere long yield to the clamor of their impoverished and starv ing populations, and there will come interven tion, “with all its woes”; upon this will follow at once intimate entangling alliances witii the South, to Ite succeeded by hostilities with us, and, in all human probability, by the perma nent establishment of the rebel Confederacy. What fate might befall our own institutions, amid the bankruptcy, and demoralization, and brokenness of spirit consequent on such a dis lneuiocrmont. 1 will not trust myself to in quire. We cannot hope to escape from this train of events by any exploits of our navy, however brilliant, occupying the Southern coast and the cities upon the seashore. This, though well, and very well, will he but scratch ing the extremities of the giant. Instead of dealing blows at his heart. That heart palpi lates defiantly in the armies of Lee and Jack son which have so recently ravaged Maryland, and still from the bauksof the Potomac threat en the Capital. My faith in ail ttiis matter is simply and briefly stated. It is this; For all things that are lor the Union—against all tilings that are against it. I am for the Union as uncondi tionally as I am liir protecting my own body, at every cost and hazard, from the knife of the assassin. Xo human institution, no earthly interest shall ever by me lie weighed in the scales against the life of my country. Least ol all will I approach with unsandalled feet, or permit to be thus weighed, ail institution, the fountain of whose Iming—the African slave trade—tiie laws ot my country have for more than forty years denounced as a crime worthy of death—a crime not against any particular code, or any particular form of civilization, but a crime against the very race to which we be long. //ostia humnni generis is the designa tion which the Christian legislation of the United States has given to the African slave trader. I yield to no man in veneration for the Con stitution, or in determination that its blessings shall be extended to those who respect and obey it. The door to all these blessings is widely open to the Southern people, and they are earnestly invoked by the President to en ter it and enjoy them. These institutions and their every interest are in their own hands, and can lie saved not only from ruin, but from the slightest injury, by the utterance oi a single, word—a word of duty and of honor. But. if in their passionate pursuit of separate empire, and in their blind resentment against brethren who have never wrouged them, they refuse to speak that word and prefer to perish themselves rather than tiiat the loyal States shall escape destruction —be it so. The world will judge aright, and history will record its judgment. But is it not childish prattle to say that the South ean claim to be at the same moment the protege and the destroyer of the Constitution ? Does it not re quire an audacity absolutely Satanic to insist that the beneficent provisions of that hallowed instrument shall lie secured to States and peo ple who are hourly spurning and spittiug upon its authority, and who are leading forward vast armies to overwhelm it, and with it tiie hopes and homes of all who are rallying in its de fence? War—certainly one like this, in self defence—is clearly constitutional; but if such a war has its restraints, it has also its rights and duties; prominent among which is the right and duty of weakening the enemy by all possible means, and thus abridging the san guinary conflict. Never until now lias it entered into tiie imaginations of men to conceive that among these duties is that of seeing that the enemy is clothed and fed and armed before he is struck. In prosecuting the war, while exercising our right to weaken the enemy, we may destroy not only ships upon the sea, and fortresses and cities upon the land, but human life upon tiie battle field. But what institution, what ma terial inti rest is more hallowed than human life, and what material interest is there belong ing to the enemy that we are obliged to spare, even though by so doing we perish ourselves? The Cou-titution is a charter of National life and not ol National death. All movements whidh seek or tend to the dissolution of tiie Government created by it, and of w hich it is the soul, are in conflict with its spirit and with the scope and end ofits enactments, and may be resisted to the death by its express or im plied authority. Neither the keenest vision nor the most delicate ear can detect in any line or letter of that glorious charter the faintest throb of sympathy with treason or traitors. Pardon these hurried words, which are spken in crimination of none hut iu grief alone. No man more sincerely desires the re-estal>lish incnt ofthe Union than does tiie President him self. Let it be our trust that while an Oetoiier sun is yet shining, tile mind upon w hich all de pends w ill devise ways and means toovercoine every obstacle to the onward marchand triumph of our armies. New York has already sent a hundred and seventy regiments into tiie field. Tiie muskets they bear prove that they are unconditional Union men. God forbid ihat the fathers, and brothers, and sous, whom they have left be hind, should, through a show of dissension at the ballot-box, do aught to weaken their hands, or to aid the strength and courage of the traitors whose swords are lifted against their bosoms.

Stoves, EVER OFFERED TO THE PUBLIC I Manufactured by the Barstow Stove Company, Whose Casting* stand unrivalled throughout New England. The senior partner of the Company, whose experi ence of nearly a quarter of a century in the btove Manufacture, save— thai by an AIR TIGHT STOVE we mean a stove so perfectly fitted as to place the draft of the stove entirely w ithin the control of the person using it; enabling him to presene either a wood'or coal dre for many hours, by simply closing the draft slide, thus securing great economy iu time, j and in cost of fuel, a* well a* avoiding the dust con- j sequent upou rekindling ROASTING AND BAKING. But the novel—the peculiar feature ot the MODEL COOK—that which distinguishes it from all others— is the addition of a Ventilated Roasting Oven withia the body of the stove and in front of the tire; so ar ranged that it cau be used separately tor roasting, or (by the removal of a simple plate) iii connection with the larger oveu for baking. Wherever these stove* have been used, they have given universal satisfaction. FOB SALE BY F. A.
