The Army of the Potomac has once more been ordered to cross the Rappahannock. The news from Washington states that General Hooker's division wont over on Wednesday; and all the reports from Richmond confirm the statement* that the Union array was about to croas above and below Fredericksburg, and that an early attack on General Lee's forces was imminent. General Burnable baa issued an address to his soldier9 announcing that they were about to be led against the enemy. The late brilliant actions in Worth Carolina, Tennessee and Arkansas, he says, have divided and weakened the enemy on the Rap' pahannock, and the auspicious moment seems to have arrived to strike a great and mortal blow to the rebellion, and to gain that decisive victory which is due to the country. ' iter despatches from headquarters last night * > that the storm which has raged there I he last three days, has left the roads in a 1 . hie condition, and that there was no prospect n immediate change. As far aa known, how ever, no action had taken place up to yesterday evening. ? A despatch received at Charleston from Kins ton, N. C., on the 15th, says "that our troops drove the rebel pickets eighteen miles below the day previous, and that it is supposed to be a strong force in advance. Our forcea are build in? bridges over Cove creek, which is doubtless a feint to cover their movements on Wilmington or Weldon. The federals are sixty thousand strong, a?d have twenty days' rations. The Yankee gunboats attacked Fort Caswell on the l.lth, but without arriving at any result. A fight is expected here, at Kinston, within three days." 1 he capture of a rebel defence below Fort Cas well by Lieutenant Cashing, has been before re ported in these columns. K,.ine fears were entertained for the safety or our iron clads, the Wcehawken and Nahnnt. in the late storm, but it will be seen that the former steamer got safely into Fortress Monroe, although several powerful tug boats were compelled to seek shelter. The Nahant also reached Lewes l>ei., in safety, facts which prove that the iron Cluds are able to stned a heavy sea. The rebel papers state that an nnsuccessful at tempt was made to run the blockade off Charles ton on the 19th. A vestal, supposed to be the steamer Huntress, laden with four hundred bah , of catton, endeavored to get out but failed to do so, and was burnt off the mouth of the Swu-di channel on the night of the 21st. An interesting caee. arising out of the rnptun of the British ship Admiral by a fruited State. eruisen for attempting to run tho blockade of the port of Savannah, has just been heard in the Liverpool Court of Passage, before the Assessor. ' A number of seamen who bad agreed to serve on board the Admiral into and out of -'safe" ports in North or .South Amcri< a brought an action against the owners of th? vessel for ex ?? wares and compensation for the time icy wo?a detained and ill-treated ? on ?aril the United Slates cruiser Th<\ , ,,mp ? the captain altered the course of the re r ?1 attempted to run her info Savannah a bled; d port, nnd rone. ,tlv one Of darner.

Th. seamen acknowledged that Ui, c.p,ain protested at the time of the arrest. in tllc |irWM nf alt the crew, to the United Ht if.., ^ 'n htm of having thus decoyed him into the uhl 1!. ' lockade. The Assessor decided that the men r ' 1 he paid: hut leave was given to the owners A mltal to appeal the case to the Court of CONGRESS. Ill the Senate yesterday U?? credentials of Hou. David Turpic, elected Seuator from Indiana, were presented. A petition for the relief of the widow of Thomas Gregg, the original inventor of iron clad vessels, was also presented. A joint resolu tion was offered directing the Secretary of the Navy not to accept a title to League Island until Congress shall so direct. A motion to refer the subject to the Naval Committee was rojected?12 against 25. Petitions from the daughters and sis ters of Commodore Uenshaw and Commander Wain wright re.-|)ectively, both of whom were killed at Galveston, asking for pensions, were presented and referred. A resolution directing inquiry as to the expediency of publishing monthly the iiaincs of all officers of the army who are absent on leave was adopted. The bill amendatory of the act es tablishing the grade of line officers of the navy was called up and discussed, but no action taken. The subject of annulling treaties with the Kioux Indians and alfordiug relief to tho sullerers by the Indian outrages in Minnesota was debated and laid aside till to-day. The bill reimbursing Minnesota for Indian war expenses was passed. The bill to provide greater comfort for sick and wounded soldiers and promote the efficiency of the medical department was then takeu up. in the course of the debate Mr: Uicc said that "al though a member of the Military Committee lie had been able to get no accurate information from any department of the government as to the number vl JJicniu army or in the hospitals. Tluy sent here estimates for one million two hun dred thousand men, and some of them for one million live hundred thousand men; but none of them could tell within fifty pet cent what the real number was. They were al ways asking for an increase of rank and pay. The cry was for money, money, money; and none of tliciu could tell what for. There seemed to be no order in tho departments at all." After an ex ecutive session the Seuate adjourned. In the House of Representatives a bill providing for a Dcpnty Register of the Treasury, at S'2,500 per annum, and extending for two years the terms of office 'of Assistant Secretaries of War, was passed. The House then went into Committee of the Whole on the bill providing ways and means 'or the support of the government. A number of mportant amendments were adopted. The bill, so fur as it has bean amended, may be found ap pended to the report of the Congressional proceed 'ngs in to-day's Hkuai.u THE LEGISLATURE. In our State Seuate yesterday a message wa* re ceived from Governor Seymour in response to the resolution of that body requesting him to call out the militia or to take such other measures as lie might deem necessary to prevent a riot in the Assembly chamber. The Governor states his de" termination to preserve order iu the capital, but reminds the Senators that he cannot act ut their request, as he can only interfere when members of the Assembly call on him for protection. He has however, he informs them, made such arrange ments with the Mayor of the city as he believes will prevent any riotous proceedings. The mes sage. was read and ordered to be printed. A bill to incorporate the Ilurlem Savings Bank was intro- | duced. A resolution to pay the.N w York soldiers iu our army out of the State treasury, in the form of a loan to the national government, was offered, and laid over under the rule. But little other business of general interest was transacted. The Assembly met at twelve o'clock, but ad journed without talcing any vote for Speaker or transacting any other business, the day's session being taken up with the speeches of members. Judge Dean, of this city, the democratic candidate for the Speakership, withdrew from the contest, and nominated as his successor Mr. Eliphaz Trim mer, of Monroe county. It is thought probable that an organization of some kind will be effected to-day. MISCELLANEOUS NEWS. The storm on Wednesday night was of greater violence than supposed at first, but, singularly enough, was not fruitful in any serious accidents to property in this city. On the water it is feared many accidents will be reported in the course of a day or twq. All the steamboats from the East were unusually late in the hour of their arrival at this city, as will be seen by the reports in our co lumns of marine uews. A Fortress Monroe despatch of yesterday an nounces the safe arrival of the iron-clad Weehawken in Hampton Bonds. The telegraph announced yesterday that the nogro-worshippers in the Wisconsin Legislature had nominated for re-election to the United States Senate Hon. James It. Doolittle. The conserva tive members have not yet settled upon a can didate. It is not certain which party candidate will be elected, as there is considerable doubt about the political sentiments of some of the members, particularly those who were voted for by both parties, and who claim the designation of Unionists. As a faction they unquestionably hold the balance of power, and are therefore able to control the clcctiou. The following is the politi cal complexion of the two houses: Semite. Hiniee. Conservatives. 10 48 Negro-worshippers Ifi 45 Unionists ? 6 Doubtful 1 ? The ticket nominated by the nigger-worshippers' State Convention of Connecticut, whi-li met, In New Haven on Wednesday, is the same as that brsnght forward by the so-called Union Convan tion of that State. It consists of all of the pre sent State officers. The Adjutant General of Connecticut has issued an amnesty to all military offenders in that State. In general orders he says: - -"All persons who by enlistment or draft owe service to the State, and who have not been arrested, t L ? have not been nurtured into th< service of ti? i n.tetl States, are herein discKi d from - inn ice, and all war rat sissued b? authority fr< i 'h\. <h partment for fj,, ,rri>"t o' s:k b pc -i . nf hi iel>.. ft voked."

The lute mysterious and oppressive silence in regard to the army of the Potomac is broken in his general orders of Tuesday ItSt, ?i\e publi' cation of which id authorized, Gen. Burnside announced that his army " is about to meet the enemy once more;" that the late brilliant ac tions for the Union cause " in North Carolina, Teauossec and Arkansas have divided and weakened the enemy on the Rappahannock," and that thus the " auspicious momeqt seems to have arrived to strike a great and mortal blow to Iho rebellion." This is the substance of the address of Gen Burnside to his army ou the 20th instant; and on the evening of the ltfth it was reported, and confirmed by passengers who had just arrived at Richmond, that the Union forces had crossed over the river, and were above and below Fredericksburg. From this it is evident that Gen. Burnside has divided his army into two columns, and has advanced one against the right and the other against the left Hank of the enemy, with the rebel defences on the heights of Fredericksburg between these (wo advancing columns. From this circuraatauco wo must conclude that there is no mistake regarding the reduction of tho enemy's forces; for otherwise we might justly consider this division of his army as an ex tremely hazardous experiment. The greatest victories of Napoleon were gained by this sim ple operation of dividing the opposing army; and, with anything like un equal force, General Lee would probably prefer this attack upoa his flauks to another unbroken assault from the front. Wo conclude, accordingly, that General Burnside is positively advised of the actual strength of the enemy, and is well assured that his present movement is absolutely certain of success. The heavy rains of the last two days have doubtless interfered with his plans of an immediate engagement; but if the enemy have not fallen back this day may. perhaps, substan tially decide the fate of the rebellion. But while the campaign in Virginia is thus brought to the verge of a decisive battle, or a disastrous retreat to the enemy to avoid a bat tle, it appears that great events arc also ut band in North Carolina. From rebel sources, by way of Charleston, an army of sixty thousand men. under General Foster, is reported to be advanc ing upon Wilmingtou or Weldon. The first named place is an important seaport, where the rebels are believed to have an immense amount of army supplies and naval stores accumulated Weldon is at the junction of sev eral important railroads not far from the Virginia border, and Its occupation by General Foster would seri otialy cripple the rebel army of Virginia in cutting off its main arteries of subsistence. Wilmington or Weldon, if captured, will be a great acquisition: but whether the one or too other will be the point first assailed we must leave the event to determine. It will suffice for the present that, while General Burnside is advancing upon the rebel army of Virginia. General Foster is effectually sus|K'iiding all reinforcements to Lee from North Carolina. The prospect in Virginia and in North Carolina is cheering, and we may confidently expect within n few days the tidings of not one. but of a series of great and decisive Union victories in the Fast, and close upon them another budget of rebel diaasters in the West. Now is the time for action, and we have still good ground for the hope that Ibis hitherto melancholy month of January will end with the record of our greatest victories of the war. Bi i.i. Kin Rt ssku.and the New York Hkrai.d. ?Wo called the attention of our reader* yes terday to the sudden conversion of the London Times to the views entertained by the conserva tive and truly conscientious portion of our peo ple upon the subject of slavery. The Times, hitherto the enemy of negro thraldom, now de fends the "institution" upon Scriptural autho rity. asserting that there is much in Holy Writ to justify it. We are neither edified nor astonished at this turn about and jump about movement of the blatant "Thunderer." as the Knglish people love to style their tyrant, but would simply desire to band over to its careful consideration the fol lowing extract from its late special correspond' ent'.s letters from this country, which are now hashed up as a diary. Upon this very subject of slavery Bull Run Russell. who never lost a chance of saying something which be intended should be ungracious about this country, always coupled with some feeble animadversions against us. took the following high ground We cull this extract from his diary:?

He will manage, we dare say, somehow to drag our name into his epitaph' I'oor, weak, silly Bull Run Russell. The l.uat Badleal I*rogr??amc of the War. We find in yesterday's Tribune the last radi cal programme of the war. As the Tribune editor has but recently returned from Washing ton, where be held conferences and cauc with the leaders of the abolition parly In Con gress and the Cabinet, we may regard this pro gramme as official. Its features may be summed up in these few words:?To fight on until the 1st of May next, and then, if our efforts are fruitless, "let us bow to our destiny and make the best attainable peace." We call the serious attention of the President and the country to this display of the white feather by the radical faction. We have always contended that the desire ofthe abolitionists was not to restore the Union, but to destroy slavery and the Union together. We have alwayB predicted that the faSicals would be the first to cry out for peace, after they had obtained the abolition of slavery in all the loyal States. We ask the President and the country whether we have been mis taken?whether our predictions have hot proven true? Even President Lincoln must be startled, ?ow that the future de signs of jbo abolitionists are revealed to him through their own chief organ. In spite of our constant warnings, he has been made the dupe of a set of disunionists who have forced Hm to issue the emancipation proclama tion in order to render reunion impossible. Let him read this manifesto of the rndicals side by side with the recent message of Jeff Davis, and see for himself the coincidences in purpose of the rebels and the radicals. Both Jeff. Davis and Greeley assert that this is to be the last year of the war, and that if the rebellion main tains if "self but a little while longer the South ern confederacy will be acknowledged. This is die mode by wbich the emancipation proc lamation ryill end the war. This is the pa triotism and devotion to the Union of the radi cal faction. This is the end of the war for the Union. We do not care to recall at present the plea sant promises and infernal arts by which the radicals seduced President Lincoln from the plain path of a constitutional conduct of the war, and by which they have tempted him step by step onward, until now?when he is sinking iu the quicksands?they turn upon him mockingly, and declare that they in tend ?' to submit to destiny and make the best attainable peace." We can but pity "the disap pointment and chagrin of the deceivod aud be trayed President as be reads Greeley's declara tion that the emancipation proclamation is to end the war by dividing the Union, aud we can imagine him comparing w itli tbese words the past pledges of the radicals, and bitterly ex. claiming, with Macbeth? At cursed bo that tongue that t. lis mo so; For it tutti cowed my better pail of mau' Aud be tbese juggling Uends ue more believed, Th.it palter with us lu a double eeaso, That keep the word of promise to our ear Aud break it to our hope* it will be well for the President and the na. tion if he shall (irmly resolve to palter no more with these '? juggling Gends." If he will break with them wholly and sincerely, and rely upon the support of the conservative masses of the people, he can yet save the Union. Three mouths remain before the army will be reduced by the discharge of thousands of our bojt soldiers, and before intervention is possible either from loreign Powers or from the traitor ous machinations of the abolitionists. Within that time everything can be accomplished if the President w ill but take the proper measures to secure success. In yesterday "a Triton* the radicals indicate how they demand that the war shall be conducted until May next, and with some of their recommendations we agree First and principally however, we must advise the President to recall his abolition proclaim tion and reassert the Union sentiments of his inaugural address. Thus he will at once secure tbe hearty support of every man who loves the Union, the effects of his proclamation will be exactly reveised. and the North will be again united and the South divided. For what a few persons may say of tbe fickleness of this change of policy the President should care nothing. Repentance u never agreeable, and the confer "ion of sin* is a cruel tusk: but both are as ne cessary to the salvation of tbe Union as to the salvation of the soul. The Pr> sident has been popularly termed - honest.' and we hope that he will be honest enough to own himself in tbe wrong and to atone for bis post errors, now that they are apparent, no matter at what cost of pride and self esteem This done, the President should change his Cabinet, as the radicals recommend; but he should reorganize it. not of worse fanatics than those who now compose it. but of practi cal. conservative statesmen, m, far example, General McClellan a# Secretary of War. The people ore so unanimous for a reconstruction of the Cabinet that it i? dangerous to trifle with them longer. The radicals agree with the con servative* upon this point, and there is no dls sqptieni voice in the country. The Tribune's second recommendation, to dismtas from the aruiy every officer who it* not an abolitionist, is unworthy of notice; and the recommendations to stop the Coast Survey and shut up the West Point Academy are equally silly. Let the Pre sident remember the Inestimable value of the Coast Survey officers during the attacks upon Hilton Head and other points along the coast, and that the deficiency of West Point officers in our armies has been one of the onuses of our useless sacrifices of brave soldiers' lives. For the rest, we agree with the radicals In urging that every loyal offi< er shall be called into ac tive service, no matter In what capacity, so tha* he be made useftil. and we include in thin advice even General Fremont. We have on objections to calling out the militia of the loyal States for three months to garrison Washington, Baltimore and other points, so that the soldiers now In the service may be actively employed Nor do we object to the arming of every volun teer. white, yellow or black, if tbey are willing to commingle. We endorse the TVibune's sug* ge^tion to borrow three or four hundred mil lions of dollars on the best possible terms, if any one will lend the money, an l we are cet. ' tainly willing to treat the European Powers i witu politene"!* and most distinguished Con. ; std* ration" If tfccv Interfere, although w? nro pose to bo ready to give them something stronger than politeness if diplomacy shall fail to keep them at bay. In all of these measures we are more or less in agreement with the radicals. But in regard to the close of the war we differ with Greeley and all his faction, plumply, de cidedly and unalterably. Even if wo do not succeed during the next three months, oven if "some malignant fate" thwarts our efforts, we are not in favor of " bowing to our destiny and making the best attainable peace." We know that if the President will take our advice, and utterly abandon the scandalous crew of devilish Marplots and in triguants who now infest Washington, and who have disgraced and dishonored the coun try, there will be no necessity of accepting " the best attainable peace" at the end of three mouths. We know what " malignant fat- " has hitherto thwarted the best efforts of tiio country n ?<! we call that " fate" the damnable abolition, negro-worshipping faction. If the President doer not kick this faction out of power we Bhall know where to place the responsibility of our failures, during the next three months, as during the past two years. Whether the war continue, or whether it em?, that faction will be trampled under foot and crushed out of existence. President Lincoln yet has it in his power to save the Union if he will; but thero is no power able to save the abolition faction. How the country will be preserved if President Lincoln still refuses to be wise, we shall not at present predict; but o?j:y auus i? $? of the "radical wretches, and they will have no more chance of political supremacy in a di vided, or oven a sub-divided nation, than in the Union tbey have labored to destroy but which we still hope to again seo one and indivisible. The Mission Co Washington of Colorado Jtirett and I'oor Greeley. Colorado Jewett and l'oor Greeley have just returned from a mission to Washington. They travelled in the name car, put up at tho same hotel, slept in the sauie bed, and would have used the same comb, toothbrush and wash basin had not poor Greeley been constitution, ally averse to the employment of either of these articles in making his toilet. Colorado Jcwett reports to us the result of his part of the mission in a letter which we publish this morn ing. Poor Greeley made a report of his work in tho Tribune yesterday. We are thus officially informed that the object of their mission was to end the war by foreign mediation. Greeley tried to effect tbis object by arguing with and dictating to the President, whom lie considers merely as his agent since the issue of the emancipation proclamation, and by call ing together in a caucus the rank and file of tbo republicans in Congress, whom he believes to be the creatures of his willj since tliey pwe their election to his in. flueace. Jcwett, on the other hand, manipu. lated the Cabinet and th# diplomatic corps. His fitness for this onerous labor hp proves by pub lishing bis letters to the Emperor Napoleon and Queen Victoria, writteu during his late in dependent mission to Europe. The Emperor acknowledged the receipt of Jewett's epistle through bis secretary, and asked for more of the same sort. The Queen?poor woman?will probably never know that such a great man as Jewett has corresponded with her until she reads about it in the Hkrai.o. The result of the combiood labors of Jewett and Greeley was an arrangement that mediation should be accepted on the 1st of May next, the usual moving time, unless the South shall sooner submit. We are sort-y to say, however, that neither of these philosophers scums satisfied with the time fived lor the mediation. Probably they think as we do, that the 1st of April would be more appropriate. Although Greeley groans his grief into the Tribune and Jewett begs tlia potent aid of the Hkbald, their utterances are unanimous and their purposes the same In deed it is one of the phenomena.of tbis war thai two persona of such opposite characters and habits as Greeley and Jewett should have conceived such a wonderful sympathy and af fection for each other. Darby and Joan. Da mon and Pythias. David and Jonathan, were bitter, relentlesa, remorseless enemies compared to Jewett and Greeley. The Siamese twins are not more inseparable. And 70t, strange to say. Jewett has some pretensions to gentlrman liness. whiie Greeley has none; Jewett has a splendid heard and mustache and a beautiful head of hair, while Greeley's hair is of a very disagreeable color, and is full of tangles and cowlicks; Jewett has a clean person and shirt aud nicely blacked boots, while Greeley is no toriously as unclean in body as in mind; Jewett |s opposed to abolition and the emancipation proclamation, while Greeley has made tho negro his god and Wendell Philtlps bi? prophet In short, it would be im possible to find two men more dissimilar; and yet they cordially and heartily agree upon two subjects?mediation atylColorado?and this agreement makes them steadfast friends. I1 seems that Juwett owns several mountains of gold quartz in Colorado Territory, as bo hints in bis letter, and that Greeley has a little hill of the same precious metal in the same Eldora" do With a patriotism which we admire, but cannot sufficiently praise. Jewett Intends to give five or six of these gold mountains to the government to pay off the national debt. He also offers as one of the mountains?worth, say, eight or ten millions of dollar*?if vft will as sist him in his grand mediation and gold mining schemes. We accept tiro munificent oflfer, and Jewett may consider tbis article our receipt In 'nil. We shall not allow ourselves to be out dime In patriotism, however. At present we are in no need of Jewett's gold, having a pri vate gold mine in the Chemical Bank and another in the patronage of Uw pnople of this ceuntry. and therefore we alee donate our mountain to the payment of'the national debt. Poor Greeley can n at follow our example a- he |? extremely poor; and eeea vegetables and old clothes are now excessively lear. to say nothing j of the extravagant price of paper In Louis Napoleon,Colorado Jewett aud poor Greeley the world will now behold the illus trious trio which la to relieve us of all our mise ries. Let ?s struggle on in the best way we can until May next, sacrificing a few more thousand live* and isaaing a few more millions of paper money, and nil will be well. Napoleon, Jewett and Greeley will then mediate for us. and intervene for un. and settle our troubles for us in some kind of a way which neither we nor they know anything about, but which will un doiibtedly be satisfactory to all concerned In tbe meantime Jewett will go to Europe and surfeit England, France, Ireland, Nova Zembla and the rest of the world with Colorado gold mining companies. The?e rompaniex wilj all go to work at once and honey comb the whole of Colorado Territory. The gold mountains, or mountains of gold, which the patriotic Jewett and our humble selves have given to the government will then yield an income sufficient to pay off the na tional debt at once and fill the Treasury to over flowing for the future. Then, if England remains civil, we will pay her debt also and admit her into the Union, Jewett's correspondent, the Queen, included. With such brilliant prospects before us, why should we grumble at our mis fortunes or our depreciated shinplaster cur rency V Courage, fellow countrymen. Greeley aad Jewett will be our deliverers. They are the salt of the earth?in their own estimation. According to the best authority?themselves? the affairs of the world revolve around them, and they control not only the present, but also a considerable portion of tho future and a fair share of etoruily. Let us trust them, therefore, and be happy. Tiik Fkk.su Stklugi.k of thk Radicaus for Ascfndanct in tiik Cabinet.?If there is a man in these United States whose lot is to be pitied,' it is President Lincoln. " Uneasy lies the head that wears a crown," but uneasier still the head that wears it under the additional weight of party pledges. In endeavoring to reconcile bis duty to the country in this solemn crisis with his indebtedness to those who carried his elec tion, Mr. Lincoln undertakes more than any man has over succeeded, or will ever succeed, in accomplishing f , We see tho effect of this desire to accommo date }iis patriuttQ impairs td bin party obliga tions in tho pleasure brought to bear upon him by the radical oaucus now sitting in Washing ton. To a man of his temperament such inter ference must operate as a continual blister. Under its influence we hear no mora of those geuial flashes of humor that were wont to set both council and dinner table in a roar, and that made bis official ways generally pleasant. And, to add to bis vexations, Grealey and Wen dell Phillips have both gone on to tho capital jlie one to push his personal schemes while ha tightens the parly scrsw still closer upon the President, and the other to use that wit and elo quence of which he makes such an unfortunate use to induce Mr. Lincoln to abandon himself entirely to the suicidal policy enunciated by him tbe other night at the Cooper Institute. As on tbe occasion of the President's firs'1 proclamation, in Septembor last, all this note of preparation heralds another desperate effort on tho part of the abolitionists to compel Mr. Lincoln to reorganize his Cabinet exclusively from their ranks, and to place at the head of the army such men as Generals Fremont and Hunter. Tbe lessons taught by the disasters that our arms have met with through tbe inca pacity and mismanagement of these men are either wholly lost sight of or are not deemed worthy to bo weighed in the balauco against the objects which they have in view. What to them is the alternative of the nation's ruin as compared with the loss of power? "After us the deluge," It is to such men that Mr. Lincoln Is asked to surrender the few conservative elements of his administration, elements that alone have kept it afloat.'Having a majority arrayed upon their side in Congress, it is not improbable that they w^L bo able to coerce the President into a surrende1' to their views. Then, if after a few weeks' e* perimcnt of the abolition mjirw in both Cabi net and camp, they find, as they unquestionably will, that in neither will it work, they will, allow tho cause of the Union to go by default; for such Greeley the other day distinctly inti mated to be their intention. Are wc not jnstifled under these circum stance* iu saying that the republic has reached the crisis of its fate? On the honesty and firm ness of a single man now depends the question of its salvation or ruin Let us hope that the President will rise equal to the emergency, and that he will succeed in shaking off the trammel* by which bis patriotic impulses and tendenci" ? have hitherto been so fatally checked Tiib Ciievai.iek Jambs Wathon Wann Loon i\u L'pOm k Mork in Ai.i.
