The Condition of the Country.
It cannot be denied that there are
many who are now almost ready to
despair of the republic. , They have
gone through the- weary years of our
struggle thus far without losing faith
in the ultimate success of our cause.
They were never greatly di.-heart-encd
by. disasters in the field or dis
senlions in the Cubiin t. I!ut in the
contentions and jealousies and frauds
that are now rife among the people,
they see something more dangerous to
success than a routed army or even a
divided council. Men w ho never j
trembled at Southern power or foreign
menaces, now turn pale at the insin
cerity, selfish ambition, and lack of
patriotism developed by the near ap
proach of a general election. And
well they may take alarm at such in
dications for w hen these- depravities
find their way among the citizens of a
republic and overcome the virtue of
the masses there is nothing behind to
correct the evil j and all history shows
that a republic was never jet over
thrown but by the folly and vices of
its own citizens.
It is evident that those eyils are to
a certain extent at work in. our midst.
Men who have' eu'Jeavoretl to make
I ha power of their patty work out
their own sellUli ends ate eanyiu:
over their abilities and influence to
organizations whiJi they have hither
to denounced us treasonable in their
tendencies and dangerous to the safe
ty of the republic. Of these, some had
hoped to succeed Mr. Lincoln in the
Presidential chair, and failing to se
cure the nomination in the regular way,
are ready to biiak up the party they
have helped to establish; others have
aspired to control the policy of the
government, and finding that the views
of others are preferred, are ready to
give up their principles to throw ob
stacles in the way of plans which are
not their own ; and others still, having
desired for the benefit of their pockets
to ormtrol the disposition of places and
honors and not been deemed worthy
of the trust, are anxious to see anoth
er administration in power that they
may enjoy a greater share of the spoils.
Of these three classes, John C. Fre
mont, Hen Wade, and Henry Winter
Davis, are the representatives. With
such men among the leaders, there are
always men among the masses who
are calculated (obe influenced by them.
There are some who are zealous and
confident at first, but whose patience
is soon worn out and who despairing
of accomplishing whatih.y have be
gun, are ready to take up tomc new
project which relieves them from the
necessity of toiling further. There
are others who neve have any decid
ed opinions in favor of anjr one princi
ple or policy and are always ready for
any change that has a specious ap
pearance. But w hen we see the Fre
monu and Wades, from pen-dial spite
and ambition throwing their influence
in favor of those whom they have hith
erto been the first to denounce as trait
or,we remember that John C. Calhoun
was a patriot and sought the gool of
his whole country unt.i, after having
been the idol of the people, be saw
the Presidential nomination slipping
I from bis grasp at d receding forever.

Heps is too much for their patiiotUm
There are a lew men who sewn to
be really alarmed at this defection of
men in high places, and are almost in
clined to think llmt there mu.t be
something wrong in the Administra
tion when tome of its noiscst support
ers are falling away from it. Such
should remember that m t men are
ambitious, that some are unscrupulous,
and th.it not a few have a better opin
ion of themselves than others have.
When their party comes into power,
these ambitious men all desire appoint-
ments j those who have a better opin-
ion of themselves than others liuVe,
are not satisfied with what they get j
and by the time another election comes
round, those of the number who are
unscrupulous, are anxious to try their
chances under another Administration.
When the supporteis of an Adminis
tration suddenly become horrified ut
the evils they find in it, it is always
well to see if they have not had some
disappointment to quicken their per
ception. The man who in '01 dt-clur-
eu hii meM.ives 01 ins j J.artuient
(tee, would never have discovered that
the confiscation policy of the Admin-
isttation was wrong if he had been a! -
lowed to use the ai my to further his
ambitious schemes with repaid to the
Presidency. Similar causes can be
found for the tii klen light .which has
burst upon tiie indignant Wade n:u
In this way it is always expected
that the patty seeking to overthrow
the one in power will receive some
accessions to its strength. Hut if the
people are true to themselves, they
will be little influenced by a change
of parly whie-'i is so evidently the re
sult of private leseiitiiient and exor
bitant ambition. 'Jit the disturbed po
litical condition of the country to d iy.
it is gratifying to see that the body of
the people are not easily dei eived or
turned aside from the work to which
they have put their hands. The grand
Fremont movement is the grandest
failure in the 'political history of the
country, and never before did a polit
ical manifesto signed by two men of
the supposed importance and influence
of Wade and Davis meet with so little
consideration. But although the Un
ion party has nothing to cause it to
despond, it has enough to incite it io,
vigorous action. Although these dis
contented leaders carry but few of
their old followers with them, they car
ry their abilities and services j and
there is no xeal like that of new con
veits, and no hatred like that of ren
egades and apostates for the compan
ions with whom, and the principles for
which, they have fought.
Recruiting in Southern States.
Gen. Washburn has i.-sued a cir
cular calling the attention of the Se
lectmen and citizens generally to the
fact that but two recruits have been
enlisted by the agents of this Stale
under the new system of recruiting
in the rebel Jen itory, and urges upon
the towns the necessity of making
every effort to fill up their quolas
home without relying upon a source!
of assistance so precarious at that of
Southern enlistments is likely to prove
Many of the State agents have alrea-
;dy returned, and the statements of j
those who come from Tennessee and
Georgia Would seem to indicate that

Bl.At.KISi:itllY CoitniAi. To two
quarts tf blackberry juice add one
pound of sugar, hall ounce oft inatnon,
half ounce of nultne', half ounce of
u'lspice, tpiarter of an ounce of cloves.
Iloil twenty minutes, and when cold
add one pint of brandy.
Now that the blackberry season has
arrived, should We not take advantage
of it ? The above receij t is recom
mended by the Sanitary Commission j
but ils astringent efficacy can be much
improved by adding a half pint of
strong strawberry tea made from the
vines and leaves. The use of this
Cordial has proved very beneficial,
especially in cases extremely delicate
to manage by ordinary treatment.
The berry dried is of great service lo
them, but has not, ef course, anything
of the power of this Cordial. Cannot
nearly every family' in this town give
one bottle if no m ire ? If the donors
will boil the juice thoroughly with the
spices and sugar, the btandy will be
supplied from our Sanitary Con. mis
sion fund, and added ai tie time of
sealing, which will be done at Alts.

desirable as this. '
It is secure. F.vrry dollar of eve
ry man's piopetty is pledged for the
punctual payment of the interest, and
of Ihe debt when due. The security
is increasing in value. For some
years before vthi war we were earning
1,000 millions a year more than we
spent. During the three years ol the
war, owing to the high prices ami
constant demand for labor, we have
earned more than ever before. No

to the usual rule ot assessment, was
not more than two-thirds of the actual

The interest oil
1 is higher than
he expiration of each successive hall-
year. The' holder of a note has
simply to cut off one of these coupons,
present it at-the nearest bank or
Government Agency, and receive his
interest j the note itself need not be
presented at ull. Or a coupon thus
payable will everywhere be equivalent
Inn due, to money.
Thus, while ibis loan presents great
advantages to large capitalists, it of
fers special inducements to those who
w ish to make a safe and profitable in
vestment of small saving. It is in
every way the best Savings' Bank ;
for every institution of this kind must
somehow invet ils deposits profitably
in onler lo pay interest and expenses.
They will invest largely in this loan,
as the best invcdtnii nt. But from
the gross interest which thej teceive
they must deduct largely f(,r the ex
penses 01 llie i,ank. I lieu- usual rate
i"1 'iulen-st allow, d lo .leii'milors is 6
penses of the Bank. Their usual rate
per cent, upon sums over 500. The
person who invests directly with Gov
ernment will receive altuo-t 60 per
cent more. Thus the ninn who de
posits 51.000 in a 'private Savings'
Bank receives 50 dollar a year in
terest ; if he deposit Ihe same sum in
this National Savings' Bank he re
ceives 73 dollars. For those who
