THE DAILY APPEAL
M. R. MlfiHELS: :KnrtB 'WZSaESDAT KOine. ATJO I U66 m BEcntwua or m eho. It has ever heea and ever will be the fate of parties to find among their num bers, men -stodious of change." U Ba ll to originate, iacoaapetent to baild tip, or even to take secondary parts in the work of construction, and yet pos sessed of a spasmodic tort of vitality, -which aiast be made manifest, by some pecies of labor, they eagerly address themselves to the self imposed task of destruction whenever aa opportunity offers. We pass by, as unnecessary for the eiempliScation of the troth of our SMtertraw, the numberless historic evi sleocesot its correctness; and with equal pride and gratification, propose briefly to review the action of a body styling itself too "National Taion Slate Con vention, which assembled in San Francisco on tba 3d inst., and to pre aoat in the same connection a resume ot (ho comments upon the proceedings of thai body which we 6od to the Evening Balietin and Horning Call of the 4ib inst., as fully confirmatory of our main proposition. Better evidence of the ut ter futility of any -attempt which has been made, or which may be mad to divide and distract the fnioo Party, we could neither expect or desire. Passing erer the rjreamble to the resolutions adopted by the body referred to, as rr f frertrrrm n&il and allowing- them the benefit of the hiisome adulation they choose to bestow npoo Johcson and Seward, we append the second and third resolutions ot the Con rent ion; tbey are aa follows : ttrwnhtl. That the Rebellion has been crashed, that Slavery has been destroyed, and that the Rebels bavins; laid down their arms and returned to their allegiance to the United States Government, and obedience fa it laws, nothing: now remains for the political power hnt to restsre the States to their pro per position. Snmlrtd, That all theoriajnal States of the TJnioa are entitled tn be represented m Cissere . proTidimr they select a. Repreen t.ili. loyal men who are qualified h exist vac laws f the United States to serve as The first resolution quoted, states a? utter and absurd a falsehood as ever emanated from the mind of man. We look in rain throughout the reports from the rebel region, teeming as they do with records of arson, murder, and or ganized revolt for the evidence of a re turn to their allegiance on the part o the Rebels. We 6nd on the contract I incontrovertible testimony from every quarter that a ronditicn of affairs di rectly the reverse of that recited in the resolution esists. In this self evident falsehood therefore the absence of the creating and the preseace of the de structive power is apparent. For if the assertion were true, and it were denied ly the party against whom the leading spirits of tbe new movement take i-siie, taey might reasonably, nay in tLe very nature of things, they would build up the ftbric to tbe completion of which the Cnion Party have dedicated them selves. Being false however, ignomin ious fiil ire awaits the men who under take upon such aa hypothesis to create a party ad'-quate to tbe exigencies of the times. We need hardly add that t'aere need be no fear that thev will suc ceed better in their work of destruction thai in that of construction. In the succeeding resolution we find embodied the very principle to the successful vin dication and establishment of which, the loyal mm uf the nation have bent their energies on the field and in tbe f r jm throughout tbe long struggle of tbe past five yenrs. And in the asser tion! of the I'umlamental truth therein embodied, is to be found that evidence of tbe ovi-rwhelining influence of tbe determination of the loyal masses of tbe nation to complete the work tbey have undertaken, the absence of wbi:h in aov declaration eminsting from any body o men professedly loyal, would furnish an assurance of degeneracy which tbe most unthinking could not fail to view with well grounded alarm. Let it be borne iu mind that this declaration embody in the very gist of all that tbe nation lias travailled in the pang of a second birtti to bring forth, cmaaates from a body of wen, wiio assume to be tbe representatives of the spirit of constitu tional loyalty, add yet who assemble with the avowed purpose of taking part through their appointed representatives ia a Convention, in which every leading traitor and rebel in the nation, etperts and ia expected to have voice, and the questions at once arise: Do these men represent the Cnion Party? Can it be possible that the work of construc tion can be or should be intrusted to their hands? And if these questions can be answered in tbe affirmative there is nothing left to struggle for, there is no longer a contest between the loyal and tbe disloyal there is no issue between treason and fidelity to the Re puhlic. But no such answer cao truth fully be given. We need not look with alarm npon tbe condition of affairs which wonld exist if such were the case. We only see the mortifying and anomalous spectacle of professedly loyal men itch ing for notoriety, assuming a task to the performance of which tbey are ut terly incompetent: and by their rash and ill advised and prematurely attempt ed diversion, exposing their own weak ness and drawing more clearly and dis tinctly the line of demarcation between the contending elements now struggling for the mastery. But placing the esti mate of its founders npon this new movement, it can be characterized as nothing more than an attempt to dictate the terms upon which the organization of tbe Cnion Party shall be maintained; and as snch we hare before remarked nothing but ignominious failure awaits it. Even that Toft Hunter, the "Morn ing Call" with all its predelictions for "my policy" and which might reasona bly be supposed to be ready to favor any movement of the character of that under discussion, recognized its true character and doubtless for very shame's sake spurns tbe alliance which the new movement courts: The "Call" says: It baa been, we judge, gotten np wholly with reference to St.te politics and future State elections. Should the action of the Philadelphia Convention be such that all truly loyal and Union-loving men ran in dorse, this new movement will undoubtedly become the biggest fish in the political wa ters of this State. But, in case that Con vention fails to accomplish what appears tn be the objects of its originators, it is quite probable that the new movement will not as sume overshadowing proportions. It ap pears to be a serious and grave matter to en gag? in an enterprise which seems calculated to create a division ir the l aiuu ranks. This is backing its friends with a ven geance Tbe "Bulletin'' is even more outspoken ia its denunciation of this proposed effort at political mU'-'jeua-tion : Further than efforts to gam temporarv prominence bv being connected with a new " J political organization, however small it mat I : he, nothing is likely to be done in California. 1 1 here la little at present to divide those per sons who acted with the L nion party through nut the war in this State, and a feeling is prevalent that any attempt to send delegate to the Philadelphia Convention would be worse than useless. 1 here is no doubt that some Unionist in other States were in the first instance led to give in tbeir adhesion to the movement, but the determination of such nien as V ar.andigbitm, w ood, etc, to attend has disgusted them, and it is now quite eer- that the Convention cannot be otherwise than a failure so far as the Uulun party is concerned. And in conclusion we can but say as e said at tbe beginning that we can not but feel pride and gratification in thus being able to assure our readers that this new movement is held at its true value bv even the lukewarm of our vo household; and that any t-rT rl to bring about an affiliation of the Union Party with tbe treasonable conclave snout to assemble in rmladelphta, can have no other effect than to arouse the letermination of the loyal to refuse so to stultify and disgrace their record In the failure of tbe nrw movement wr may well believe we see the Beginning of the End of the attempt of treason to re-habilitate ils repulsive carcass and as sume tbe Dictatorship of the Republic. Maeixo Tbkasos Ooiocs The true patriot is loth to believe that our for met leaders who have taken so aciive a part and rendered tbe country sui h in valuable service could or would allow themselves to be made the pliant tools ef treason, but the undeniable fact forces itself upon us, as an extract from an Eastern letter, which we quote, but too plainly proves : We have said Johnson is continual! plotting. Seward is his chief engineer and diviner. He is the procured priest who watches the flight of the birds of omen and inspects tbe entrails of sucb decapitated - subjects" as bis innster flings to him. The correspondent of tbe Worcester spy, writing troin tbis place, says : Mr. Seward was present at levee, a few nights since. He in dulged largely in vaticinations of a par tisan character. Predictions of a sinis ter purport were hurled at every Con gressman of a Radical character, who waa ao aafortuaato as to come within tbe eosapaaae of hia ocotwina; owgao and soured intellect. Among other pointed and significant remarks was one addressed by the oracle to several New Yorkers. Mr. Seward declared with an all knowing air, that not a Radical of this present New Tork dele- f iron wonld be re-elected. To another party of listeners be several times re peated the assertion '-That after its ad journment this session, this Congress would never be beard from again. It is also asserted that tha premier said " if it adjourn witbont admitting tbe Southern members, it would never meet again." Ominous words these. We naturally inquire as to their meaning. They are probably intended to warn us of Southern vengeance, or do tbe? mean that Mr. Seward and hit friends will secede with tha national archives, capital and nil ?" I am inclined to think that Mr Sew ard had been drinking wine from Bac chus' two handled cup that night. Men wholly sober do not, aa a general rule, " let out" such State secrets. TO THE POIBT- Senator Trumbull, of Illinois, in a recent speech uses the following lan guage which very fully and forcibly ex presses our views to tbe matters touched upon : Mr. Trumbull wished to know if the Sen ator from Indiana was in favor of placing the control of the States lately in rebellion in the hands of rebels ? Is the Vice President of the late Confederacy to come here as a Sen ator ? Is his colleague, Ilerschel V. John son, fresh from the rebel Congress, tn come here as a Senator to legislate for the loyal people of this country ? Let the Senator from Indiana shake off his party shackles and arise to the Union sentimnt of the country. Iet him say to the people of the South, you rebels who brought on this war, hi occasioned this desolation and woe throughout the land, must stand back and let theloval men of the country rule the coun try. Let him unite with us in demanding that loyal men shall eontrol the country, and I will unite with the Senator from Indiana in welcoming their representatives to seats here and the passage of laws recognizing these States as in friendly relation to this Govern ment. If the Senator wants this harmony restored ; if he wanta friendly intercourse among the inhabitants of the late rebel States 1 tell him he cannot have it until there is a union of sentiment in the South that will pre fect the Union men of the South. He cannot have it when a man for personal safety in traveling through late rebel dUtriefs, has to conceal his love of the Union. He cannot have it when the national flag cannot be borne in safety through the streets of Mobile. He cannot have it when loyal men and women are not permitted to go and scatter flowers upon the graves of the heroes who fell to maintain the Union The loyal men of the country and the Union men of this nation have sntFered too much and too long to have affiliation and friendship with the traitors who brought ruin upon the country, and still per sist to oppressing loyal men. Lono Lira of Sea Dogs. Going down to the sea in ships must be conducive of longevity, for notwithstanding the disasters to which mariners are subject, a larger pro portion of them than of any other class ap pear to attain an old age. The M U. S. Xavy Register, for 1S66, shows that out of one hundred and nineteen Admirals, Com modores, and Captains, forty-four have been in the service fity years and upwards ; fifty-one have been in the service from forty to fifty years, while not one has seen less than thirty-seven years' service. Rear Admiral Charles Stewart has been in the service siitv-eight years twentv -four of which were at sea having entered the Navy in March, 1798, as a Lieutenant. Commo dore Pornin, a native of Ireland, has seen more sea service than any other officer in the Navy, having been at sea twenty-ail years and ten months ; next is Commodore Nicholson tw, nty-six years and eight months. .rxt to Admiral Stewart. Coin mo.iore Sloat is the oldest officer in the ser vice, having entered the navy in February l!H over sitv-ix years ago. It was this venerable officer who first hoisted the Ame rican f...g in California, in July, 1816, and hus spoiled a very nice r.nglish g"ne to ake possession of this country. Fifty-one nf these old sea dogs are now on the retired iit. hut most of them are engaged in some light duties. Vice-Admiral Porter is the voungest on the list of Admirals. He was. therefore, promoted to be Vice-Admiral over ten senior Rear-Admirals. Admiral Karragnt, though hav ing been in the servioe over riftv-five and one-half years, is the inmor nfhfteen other officers in the service. ix ot whom are Captains, three Commo dore, and six Rear-Admirals. One slow coach entered the Navy seventeen years be fore Admiral Torter did. was commissioned Lieutenant nine years before Forter entered the N ivv. and he is still a Lieutenant. There are four Admirals, fortv-five Commo dores, and forty-seven I aptains. m the ser vice, who are the juniors of this unfortunate slow coach. Une chap has been a Midship man over twenty-eight years. Several Sur geons have been in the service from thirty to fifty years each, paymasters do not seem to last long in the Navy, as but very few of them have served twenty years. They probably are carried off bv disease nf the chest. 1 here are several Gunners, Carpen ters, and Sailmakers. who have been at tach'd to the Navy from thirty to forty years. pan r ranciaco Call.
