Election dxt ai Co.vcosut, r. II. June
4tb. is describeil as laving been a great day
at Concord. Tbe ceremonies connected with
the inauguration of Got. Gilmore were of
unusual interest. A military procession ac
companied by a large number of citizens es
corted the Governor elect and the retiring
Governor to the Hcpresentativrs Hall where
addresses were ruaifc and tho oaths of office
administered. A correspondent says the
imposing ceremonies and the multitude of
people in attendance can only 1 regarded as
a spontaneous expression of esteem for the
retiring magistrate (Got. llcrry) and a mark
of respect for the distiagubhed citizen who
has assumed the duties and responsibilities

The Emancipation Proclamation a a '

of President Lincoln affords a very god ex-

let alone will accompli even in the inort
trjing cireum'tances. Was there, ever or
could there well be a more insane hauling
about any act Ilian wae kept up for a while
about thit ? Even many of its bupjiortcrk

wlitther the 1'roidetit would actually dare

The Hiclimond Enquirer of lay 30th
fjieaks of Vickslmrg as " a point not only of
strategic but political importance,' intima
ting tbat if it is captured by Gen. Grant,
there will immediately ari-e in the Southern
Confederacy a cry fur compromise and peace,
le-Vnioii with the Northwest, cry which
the Eit'mrrr says would not tlien be listened
to by the victorious West, but the altcrna
I tive presented " naked and j rcmptory sub
l mission or sobjugation. And subjugation
I means extermination."
Probably the West irould not listen to
any terms ol" compromise, after securing by
Mlot 1 itourg ana fort ituason the
I6' ,n of tbe Missifsippi onccmorc. The
rjisi surety aoes not want to oave ttiem, ana
will not do it itself, though the army of the
Potomac be beaten a doien times nnd Wash

must enbmit, and not to the last or to the

Tbe ipdrer predicts a political crisis
at the S ntb, iu the event of tho capture of
Vieksburg There is do doubt tbat to severe
n blow would shake their ConfHileraPv to the
foundation, and give ample opportunity for (
any who may lie anxious for a cessation of '
the war and n turn to the Union, to raise I
their voices in demanding well a measure. 1

It is admitted that the issue uf the present
contest depends upon the unity or division of
Northern sentiment. Tbat sentiment is in
great measure controlled by public speakers

which are employed to grre diwectirm to pub

tbe enemy. In atant that this is never al
lowable, is to deprive the Govern awnt of an
important means of defence, and to take an
extreme theoretical view which is not justi
