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
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
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
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
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
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
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.

TODD’S Ll'X SOLIS
TIIE market lias been flooded for years with differ
ent articles called Hair Dyes, which have never
satisfied the expectations of purchasers. The nr
plus ULTRA lias been reached at last in TODD’S
HAIR DYE, and the article has given entire satis
faction to every person who has used it. It contains
no injurious ingredients, and gives the lia’r a beauti
ful rich browu or black color. Directions tor using
—which are very simple—accompany each bottle.
One superiority of Todd’s Lux Sofis Hair Dvc over
all others is, you do not have to cleanse the’hair or
wash it before or after using the dye, and there is but
one kind to be used, and that can be put on the same
as oil and water, without any trouble, unliko all oth
er dyes that have two or three different kinds to be
applied every time used. This dye is peculiarly
adapted for coloring ladies’ hair, because you do not
have to wash out the dye after putting it on. Unlike
allotherdyes.it will color long hair, which other
dyes cannot do. Dive this new article a trial, as we
know you will use uo other after once using this.

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

Wherever these stove* have been used, they have
