Tile Prtaldfmdkl Q,ueitlon? Will Mr.
Lincoln be KfElertedl
Tbe late events on th? military chessboard
have given a new aspect to tbe Presidential
question. While there was a hope that in en
ergetically supporting; General Grunt in the
present campaign the administration would
redeem its military blunders of 1861, '62 and
'63, (here was a prospect that tbe Presidential
election would go by default, from tbe dis
cords and divisions among the opposition ele
ments. But at this crisis, when a rebel success
becomes a national disaster, the late disgrace
ful rebel raid into Maryland ? disgraceful to
the administration beyond any other of its
military blunders ? is producing a remarkable
reaction in tbe public mind. The idea has re
ceived a new and powerful impulse that under
" tbe powers that be" the rebellion never will
be suppressed, but that the war, dragging
along from bad to worse, will go on even
through another Presidential term of four years
I under Abraham Lincoln.
With this idea suddenly revived and widely
and actively diffusing itrolf among think
ing men of all parties, we may well ask the
question, will Abraham Lincoln be re-elected?
Our financial difficulties are such that a suc
cessful military campaign or a sweeping politi
cal revolution can alone save tho treasury,
tbe government and tbe country. Mr. Secre
tary Fessendea has been industriously making
h'.s soundings in Wall street, and cannot
touch bottom. He needs tbe relief of a
gn-at victory or two over the armies of tbe re
bellion, so decisive and comprehensive as to
awire our banks and capitalists that this war
expenditure of a thousand millions a year will
shortly come to an end. We see. however,
that tbrougb tbe stupid neglect and blundering
incapacity of the administration the military
plans und combinations of Gen. Grant, like {
those of bis predecessors in Virginia, are de
feated or seriously delayed and embarrassed at
every point One would supposo that a man
of tbe commonest intellect in Mr. Lincoln's
place would have learned something in thrae
years of military wisdom, from tbe Virginia
campaigns under bis supervision of McDowell,
McClellan, Pope, Burnsid", Hooker and Meade.
It appears, however, that oven at this late day,
notwithstanding tbe almost impregnable forti
fications with which Washington has been sur
rounded, tbe Army of tbe Potomac cannot be
moved to the James rive* without bringing the
rebels on their annual foraging incursions into
Maryland and to tbe very gates of the capital.
General Grant miy give abund int warning
of the enemy's approach, and may make all the
needful dispositions to bead him olf and cap
ture or disperse bis forces } but still tbe admin
istration seems to be as utterly incompotent to
meet tbe plainest necessities of the hour M in
the beginning of tbe war. Are the men and
money of the loyal States thus to be squandered
away till the country is exhausted and ruined?
How are we to escape those never-ending but
still recurring blunders except through a new
administration? A satisfactory way of oauape
might yet be ?e ;ured through a reconstrn ction
or tbe Cabinet, embracing those much needed
improvemonts of an experienced and capable
soldier in tbe place of the lawyer Stanton, and
a tried and trusty qpilor in the place of that
imbecile, superannuated old man, Welles;
and embracing, also, tbe appointment of

we now berln to think that nothing ehort of
eome financial or military misfortune requiring
an extra session of Congress will bring our
oasy going end inoredulous President up to the
Let bim be admonished, however, that in se
curing the Baltimore nomination and m sbelr
ing Mr. Chase tbo Presidential election is by
no means secured. General Fremont, as
an opposing candidate, may be a mere baga
telle; tbe discordant fragments of the old demo
cratic party may be regarded with commisera
tion, and the disaffections in tbe republican camp
may be treated with contempt so long as all
these element, of hostility are divided among
themselves; but the moment this idea of tbe
necessity of a new administration begins to pre
vail among them the whole face ef the politi
cal campaign Is changed. This is tbe danger
which now menaces Abraham Lincoln-the
fusion of all tbe opposition elements of tbe
country for tbe common objeet of his defeat.
Ihis combination, too, may be effected; and
General Grant himself, howerer unwilling, may
still be constrained by the pressure of public
opinion to become the people's independent
candidate for the succession.
From tbe present condition of our financial
affairs, and from all the signs of the times, it is
quite possible that before tho end of sixty days
the defeat of Mr. Lincoln may cease to bo a
doubtful question. He must do something
wuhiu this interval to revive his drooping for
tunes, or from the difficulties of the Treasuny
and the embarrassments of the country a popu
lar combination may be raised for a change at
headquarters as resistless as that of 1810.
Johnston's Rktkkat? Tub Pnon.wjc Fata
op Atlanta? Grant.? Johnston is apparently
not disposed to fight even at Atlanta, and we
may, in all probability, learn at any hour that
that place is occupied by tbe Union army.
Johnston knows very well that he cannot fight
the army that is at his beels,and is wise enough
not to try. He knows that Atlanta will be
ours anyhow, whether he fights for it or aban
dons it; and he knows that if he fights and
loses it he will lose his army also. So he will
in ail likelihood, let the city go, and save bii
men for some more hopeful enterprise than its
defence. Though we could have hoped that
Johnston's army, which is of infinitely more im
portance than Atlanta, had been destroyod be
fore it reached that place, or captured in de
fending it, yet it is evident that the fall of this
great rebel city at tbe extreme South will have
a great moral effect. Atlanta has come to be
considered, especially by the rebels, as second
only to Richmond in its importance to the con
federacy, and its fall will be regarded as a dis
aster scarcely less great than would be the fall
of the capital itself.
Last year the several great successes of the I
year came together. It looks now as if there I
would be no great fellow triumph to be associ
ated in point of time with the fall of Atlanta.
Lee still bids us defiance at Petersburg, and
gives no very evident sign of distress. Our
letters from the Army of the Potomac indi
cate tho monotonous progress of a siege, and
the probability of its continuance for many
days. But if we were to study probabilities
from Gen. Grant's career in this war. and from
a consideration of his peculiar intellectual
characteristics, rather than from the observa
tion ol facts as they are apparent in the army
just now. we would not relinquish all hope
that the capture of Atlanta would have au as
soeiate victory. It Is certain that under the
influence of the awful energy of that TiUe in
a blue coat the whole appearance of affairs on
tbe James may change in an hour; and it is
doubtless this reflection that keeps the people
patient, though it is over seventy days siuce the
army left tbe Rapidan.
Evmitt ok the English and Fkkxch Govmw
MKN-rs to TH.sCo. NTnr._For thirty years past
the English government and England's aris
tocracy have? the first covertly and the latter
openly encouraged tbe abolitionists in this
country and fermented that spirit of opposition
which culminated in the present rebellion.
The people of France have, we know, ever b?an
our friends and well wishers; but since tbe ad
vent of Napoleon the Third to tbe French
throne we have an enemy in him, inasmuch as
he thiuks to build up bis own power and influ

Both the English and French governments '
have organs in our midst, journals published
in this metropolis, which seem to have but one
object in view? tbe encouragement of the re
bellion. By all means in their power these
journals further that parposo. Secure in the
protection of our laws, they attack in the most
malignant manner the government w&ich shel
ters them. Our reverses they magnify; our
successes they decry and belittle, and each
week these journals are sent to Europe filled
with wilful misrepresentations, and are cited
there as "American journals giving an unbiased
account of affairs in that oountry." It is time
this should ccase. We hare borne with it
long enough. These journals and the lying
correspondents or European journals should
not be allowed a home or an abiding place in
this country.

will foree the latter to sell out a portion of the

government and oheck subscriptions to the new
loan, (which may consequently prove a failure.
That Mr. Fessenden should have sacrifioed na

his negotiations with the banks is a matter of
grave regret, and we are apprehensive of the
consequences of the policy he seems bent upon
pursuing. The warning furnished by the fail

invites a similar fate.
the Fence. ? In another column will be found a
batch of interesting and important documents in
relation to the Presidency, that are worthy rh
much attention as the people can possibly give
them in this warm weathor. We will speak of
tbe leapt important first. This is an aocount of
an interview between General Fremont and
Wendell Phillips. Wendell Phillips was, it
seems, for the first time in his life, in doubt.
He called upon General Fremont for satisfac
tion, and got it. lie Is now satisfied that
General Fremont is as much opposed to the
rebels as he is to Mr. Lincoln. Fremont did
not state this in bis pronunoiamiento because he
thought it was well enough understood. He
left that out of his declaration, just as the old
romancers left out some important particulars
in describing the outfita of knights errant;
"they thought it useless," says Cervantes, "to
specify things so obviously necessary as money
and clean shirts." Phillips is also satisfied that
Fremont hates the word "white," and intends to
kill all tbe white men as soo? as he is elected ?
except Phillips and Garrison. Phillips to be
reserved for Secretary of State and Garrison to
continue in bis present important posi
tion of tidewaiter. We would compare
this remarkable interview to that be
tween Wellington and Bluoher if it had
taken place after a victory iustoad of before
one. We would also compare It to tbe inter
view between Alexander and Diogenes, except
that it would be somewhat difficult to deter
mine which is Diogenes and which is Alexan
der. Both have a glorious thirst for conquest,
and each wants the other to "get out of his sun
shine." Rather more important than this is the
announcement that Mr. Cha.se is going to run
for the Presidency. We are glad to hear it.
We should be particularly pleased to see Mr.
Chase run. We have seen bim run the machine
in tbe Treasury Department until the national
credit is fairly out ef sight. We have seen him
dodge, and tumble, and turn more magnificently
than any Turner that ever wore a linen jacket
and a leather belt, and now we should like to
sec bim run. If by so doing he can ruin Lin
coln as effectually as he has ruined the national
finances, it is most earnestly to be wished that
he should play tbe bull at once? put bis head
down, his tail up, shut bis eye* and go ahead.
But the most important of all these Presiden
tial movements is that for tbe grand national
nigger convention to be held in this city. Here
is a movement for organization on the part of
all the respectable whitewashes, waiters, bar
bers, cooks and curpetnhakers in this great
country. They are numerous, and if they don't
kick up a great smell in national politics when
tbey come together it will be strange. They
propose to consider the "state of the country,"
the "claims of universal freedom and humani
ty"? and other matters. Colored people
everywhere are invited to send as delegates
their strongest men. This will startle the poli
ticians. Lincoln congratulates his followers
every now and then that God is on his side.
Wendell Phillips is sure that he never opens
his inouth except to utter God's will, and that
God smiles upon him for it. All these schemers,
in fact, aro quite sure of God; but who is sure
of the niggers? What side are they on? Do
tbey go for Lincoln, the liberator, or for Fre
mont, who desires that he may "never, never"
be President if not on an anti-slavery plat
form; or do they go at once for a man "born
black," like Greeley?
Affairs in thr Soitiiwkst. ? Nowhere are
the malignant effects of Secretary Chase's mal
administration more evident than in the South
went But Welles and Stanton are quite as
much to blame as he; for they followed up his
criminal mismanagement Agents of the Trea
sury Department, the Nary Department and
the War Department swindle the people of that
section systematically and remorselessly. It is
impossible to do anything there without a per
mit from one or all of these agents, and it is
impossible to get a permit without paying
dearly for it in a dozen different ways. The
President ought to change his whole Cabinet if
he be an honest man. To keep Stanton and
Welles in it is to oonnive at their corruption
and the dishonesty of their agents. Let the
President call upon Hanks and Sickles fyr the
proofs of what we assort

orders his wholesale conscriptions, and never i
accuses him of being "a trafficker in blood'' or |
| "an aspiring demagogue.*' It only weeps when
our armies are filled up. Its rejoicings are re
served for rebel victories.
Oi.D Abf.'s Last. ? What joke did Old Abe
got off when be learned that Greeley had gone
to Canada to consult with Clement C. Clay, of
Alabama, Jake Thompson of Mississippi, Be
verly Tuoker, George Sanders and other rebel
agents? Did this meeting remind him of any
thing in particular?
On a Pkao* Mission, Perhaps? Greeley at
Nlacara Falls, to see bow the land lies among
Tm Law Ltnohbcm Raid and Marttand
Invasion. ? We publish this morning u inter
esting letter relative to General Hunter^ late
raid toward* Lynchburg. It is elaiaed that
Hunter's delay of two days at Lexington, so
much commented upon, was caused by having
to wait for a oavalry division under General
Duffle, which had lost its way and become in
volved with the enemy on the eastern side of
the Blue Ridge. The letter claims that for
Hunter to have attempted to return by the
road on which he had advanced would have
been a deliberate sacrifice of his whole com
mand, the enemy having in full operation a
railroad from Lynohburg to Roclctish Gap,
siity or eighty miles in General Huuter's rear.
By far the most interesting part of the letter,
however, is the light It throws upon the
manoeuvres of our Washington authorities to
secure the German vote. General Hun
ter, on assuming ootnmand, was forbid
den to relieve General Sigel from em
ployment in the Department of West
Virginia; and it is to the retention of this
officer that our correspondent, professing
to reflect the opinion of the army with which he
has travelled, attributes the stampede of the
Union forces, without a contest, from Martins
burg to Maryland Heights. General Hunter,
we see, has also asked to be relieved from com
mand of his department, all the best troops of
which have been withdrawn from him to serve
under Major General Wright, in the pursuit of the
retiring columns under Early, Breckinridge and
Ransom. Nothing more absurd than this pur
suit has ever crossed the brain even of the
drivellers who mismanage our army matters at
Washington. The enemy are in their own
country, and have many days the start of us.
Why not detail another army corps, under an
other engineer, to pursue, overtake and capture
the snow that fell last Christmas? The letter
of our correspondent deserves attention.
Rebel Raiders. ? The rebels who made a
raid upon the banks of Maine did not get any
booty. Those who made a raid upon the banks
of the Potomac had much better success.
Greeley fob Pkagb. ? Poor Greeley has
gone to Niagara Falls to consult with Sanders,
Jake Thompson, Clay of Alabama, Colorado
Jewett, and other peace sympathizers there.
What does this meeting mean? It means that
Greeley has renewed his correspondence with
this clique, and will soon be over head and
ears in their schemes, as he wns some time ago
when be wrote to Yallandigham, Jewett and
Count Mercier.
Jitst So. ? A rebel paper in Southern Georgia
inquires, if General Jo Johnston cannot hold tbe
line of the Chattahoochee, where is he to make
a stand? This is the very question which John
ston himself is now called upon to answer to
General Sherman.
Important If True? The report of the Hon.
Ben Wood that the late antagonistic factions of
the New York democracy lavo consented to
bury the hatchet and smoke the pipe of peace
Makhachusktth Rkprkskntativks. ? Massachu
setts seems determined to be represented in
the army only by negroes. Before long she
will doubtless adopt the same plan in regard
to hor representatives in Congress. Now she
is represented there by ne^ro worshippers.
