speech of an Ohio War Democrat.
We cat from the Commercial the conclud- j
"iff part of (he great speech delivered by
Hon. John Brougb, of Cleveland, at Mari'ct
in, ou the 10th :
If there is auything in this war beside
tbe shedding of blood and the increase
01 taxation, that requires we should
stop It by accepting a dishonorable paace,
I don t know of it. Is tbe country suffer
mg in any great degree? Have we not the
sunshine and shower? Do we not receive
tbe fruits of our labor in due season? Onr
taxes, you Bay, aro heavy, and so they are;
but our produce is better, and money is
plenty and as good as wo ever had, and
the world is free to our commcrco. Is this
war oppressive to us who stay at home, in
any injurious way? No, we have seen it is
not. But yon want the war stopped. Shall
1 ask you whether there is not lurking in
your mind, behind all ibis special plead
ing, this idea, that there is a little doubt
about our being able to whip those men
with the forces we have there and that you
may have to leave the comforts of home,
and the prosperity of business, to help fiu
ish the work? If you entertain this no.
lion, all I have to say is, that tbe moment
you make a dishonorable peace, that mo
ment this great fabric of government, un
der which we enjoy all this prosperity, is
swept away **like the baseless fabric of a
vision," and you would soon find your
selves reduced to poverty, as well as dis
grace. There is nothing that calls to an
honorable peace but the arbitrament of
the sword ; aud be who clamors for any
other, does not understand the position
which we occupy, or is actuated by a mo
tive which I dislike here to name.
Well, you want to know what is going
to be tbe future of ibis contest; you waul
to know what will be the state of thioga
when we subdue ibe rebels?for I have a
reasonable belief lhat we are going to whip
them after a while. Some one is troubled
for fe?r there will be a vast number of
negroes lurned loose, who will come up and
interfere with Northern labor. [A voice?
Ibere have been a good many tierealong
time.''] Ves, there were some before I
left, thirty years ago, aud there is no use
to argue on this question, for where they
will go, or what ihey will do, we must
leave for tbe future to determine. They
may be a portion of the blacks that will
scatter throughout the North, but a small
portiou, lor cl'uiate, and tbe character of
the labor will drive them away. The
probable result will be that the political
character of the institution having been
destroyed, emancipation in some form will
permit them lo remain where they are.
But, for fear such a result may not come
to pass, are you prepared to take the other
alternative and go down on your knees
and sue for peace? Are you ready to let
them take all this virgin territory of tbe
West, aud cover it with their slaves, shut
ting out your brothers and your sons from
obtaining homes for themselves and their
children after them, in order to keep them
away irom us ? Are you prepared to say
that you will yield lo them again the polit
ical power of the nation ? If that is your
way uf thinking, it is not rniuc. You may
as well lake the results of tbe war as tbey
ceme, for be assured that we will liud a
way to dispose of these difficulties as they
spring up in our midst. Let us trust that
iti the end we will be found as true to tbe
great interests of the country, and suoceed
?s well in disposing of them as we have
done with the difficulties of the past.
My main desire, my friends, to-day, has
been to satisfy you that there was but one
duty or obligation for every man to take
upon himself and fulfill in tbe state of the
country at the present lime. I may have
failed, and if so, let me make a suggestion J
to my political friends as to party, ond I
wish you lo bear it in mind. . tto back to
the record for it, and take core that you do
not make the same mistake. .It is ihat no
party ever made opposition to a war that
was not rent in twain and torn to pieces
thereby; and you can blot the record out:
yon may try it, but it will stick to you
and I am not going along with you in your
opposition now. The old tories of the
revolution?they are all gone now, but
their records remain, and tbe odium be
longing to them attaches even to their de
scendants. The old members of the Hart
ford Convention are hardly spoken of with
decent respect, and I know of one case,
where the obloquy, though less than that
which should result under present circum
stances. descended to tbe individual of the
second generation, keeping him from pla
ces of honor and trust, simply because bis
father was a member of that Convention;
the disgrace clung to him like tbe shirt of
Nessus. In the war.witb Mexico we Dem
ocrats proclaimed it to be the doty of every
man to stand up for it whether webelieTed
it right or wrong. I did so, 'for I print
ed the Cincinnati Enquirer about that
time. (A voice: "I wish you printed it
now.") Well, I don't, if it advocated tbe
same principles as now. How I poured
hat shot into those who opposed the war I
How I fired whole broadsides at Tom Cor
win; aud where is he now* The brightest
intellect, the noblest man tbe old Whig
party ever had in Ohio-they hardly own
him now, having shoved him off to Mexico
?a striking coincidence; the very country
whose cause he championed. A brighter
light never went out than Corwin's, when
heand whole hecatombs of Whigafell un
der their opposition to the nation'B war
Don't let us reserve the record to-day and
place ourselves in the unfortunate pos'ition
our political opponents then occupied I
tell yon you cannot pursue this hostility to
the war without bringing reproach upon
yourselves as a party and as individuals.
Let me say to you, young men, who are
fighting in the ranks of the Democratic
party to-day, beware how you tread on that
platform. It is onsound, and the reproach
will follow you in all your future years.
Von cannot wipe it out. It will be said of
you, and to your children, and to your
children's children, that man was opposed
to putting down the most wicked rebellion
the world ever knew; and when that brand
is put upon you, it will mark you asan en
emy to your country. Young toon, let me
beg of you, turn back; go with ihat party
no longer which adopts Buch a treasonable
policy. Let your energies go with and for
your Government in putting dowo the war.
Don't cover yourself with infamy, by tak
ing upon yourself the reputation of trying
to strike down the efforts of the Govern
ment in suppressing this rebellion.
You must conquer this rebellion, or sub
mit to a recognition of-the Southern Con
federacy. You can do but one of two
things; it is folly to attempt anything else,
for there oan not exist a slave Confederacy
and a free Confederacy, side by side on
this continent. They could not" live to
gether. Nay, more than that, I tervently
believe that the great Qod himself intend
ed but one nation should occupy this conn
boundary, and the rivers stretching to the
seas, upon whose waters are borne our
try. He gave us the lakes for our northern
I commerce to the nations of thai world;
-while man has done all that cau?be done
by Bcience to bind us together, bj means
of railroads which extend like mighty
links over all the land. You must conquer
the whole country, or abandon the whole
country; you must preserve this as one I
Government, or see It rent into twenty or |
fifty different factions.
I have not proposed to-day to argue with
you the question of secession, but I say to |
you that that dogma, so destructive of |
every prinoiple npon wbioh this Republic
is based, must be crushed out, or there will
be no unity or national life hereafter. I
think old Jackson settled the question of
secession when he knocked Calhonn and
his argument down with his proclamation.
I think every man in this land will deny
the right of secession; but I had a talk
with an old friend this morning, whom I
saw here a few moments ago. I said to
him: Do you admit the right of a State to
secede ? "No, sir, I don't." Do you ad
mit the right of Washington county to se
cede from Ohio? No." Suppose she does
it? "I will try to coax her back." Sup
pose she won't be coaxed back? "I will
use gentle force to bring her back." But
supposo she has stolen all your arms and
asks you to come on and fight? "I will
just tell her, "wayward sister, go in peace.' "
These wore John Van Buren's words, but
he repented of tbem. ?Now take that prin
ciple and apply it to the Slate: How long
?bnt it would be folly to ask, bow long
would the United States bang together?
how long would there be two States pull
ing together? How long before you would
bo cut up into clans, with more chieftains
than the Roman Empire in the days of its
dissolution ? How long.would yo?l com
mand the respect of othor nations, or of
yourselves? When you talk to me about
not coerciug anybody, I reply that we co
erco men for all the crimes they commit.
We coerce men to the Penitentiary for
stealing a horse; and why on earth shall
we uot coerce a man for trying to break
up this Government? To say nothing
about a constitutional argument, common
sense forbids the idea. Now you may talk
till you are hoarse, we have got to con
tinue one Government?one united peo
ple?or be divided into factions, each snb
ject to danger from every other in the
land.
Then is there any doubt in the mind of
any man, as to bis duty in this coutest?
There can not be. We must settle this
matter, and ugain build np this country as
God Almighty desigued it to be, and as we
have been trying to make it.
This country, my friends, is the last hope i
of freemen throughout the world, it is |
the field upon which civilization has flour
ished, and science begun to accomplish its
great purposes. The nations and people
of the Old World are marking its progress
from day to day, us it enfranchises man
from every servitude. And are you go
ing to give it up? Young man, can you
afford to give to your posterity a heritage
worse than that your father gave to you7
It you can, you are faithless, not only to
your own manhood, but to your God. You
are bound to have one country, one flag,
ooe destiny. And what country shall that
be? What but the country you had be
fore the rebellion rai9ed its paricidal band
to strike it down? That country, with the
incubus of slavery wiped away?a country
that, like a weary man who bus lain down
by the road-side to rest, bas risen again,
and is marching on to its great destioy.?
What flag? What other than that old flag
which has given protection and honor to
your sires and to yourselves, from the day
of the Declaration to the prasent time??
What Sag bot that whieh smiles on your
peaceful assemblage to-day? Stand by it,
then; let it be the flag ol the Union restor
ed, reared aloft to float forever. Or when
it falls, if fall it must, let there be nothing
around it but crumbling.walls, and nothing
above it bot the angel that shall speak
tbe end of time and the beginning of eter
nity.
From tbe Fifteenth.
Sleepy Cbbkk, Va., June II, 1863.
Editors Intelligencer :
Believing a short letter from this ont of
the way place, will be acceptable to at least
a portion of your readers who have friends
and relatives in this company, I will write
a short letter, in order to let them know
that we still exist.
Our company is bnsily engaged at pres
ent, in erecting a blockhouse, and now have
it pretty well up. It is situated inside of
our rifle pits, of which rifle pits I neglect
ed to inform you in my previons letter.?
The rifle pits are very strong. They are
situated on tbe creek bank. There are two
trencbes, and the outer one is surrounded
by brush and trees, to prevent oavalry from
riding up to the trencbes. They were con
structed under the snperintendence of
Lieut. Scboff, onr worthy and excellent 1st
Lieutenant. He has shown no little skill
in their construction, and they are indeed,
a credit to him. He is confident, that with
tbe blockhouse completed, we can repulse
a pretty large force of rebels. But if tbey
should pay us a visit ere ibe blockhouse is
completed, tbey will have to bring a very
superior force, for we can whip at least
three times our number, with the aid of
the rifle pits. It will take a good force to
dislodge ns from them. Inside of the rifle
pits we have sunk a well, and the water
promises to be both abundant and good.
The bloekhonse is in the centre of the
' pits, and is to be so constructed as to be of i
good service. The first story is already
completed, nod the second will be finished
as soon as possible.
A startliug phenomena has occurred in
this county. It is said (C will not vouch
for the truth of the story, for it is very
fishy,) Ibat a child was recently boro in
this county (Morgan) which, when ten
days old, spoke and communicated the
gratifying intelligence that this war would
end in a month: Hero is another: It is
said there is a well near Hancock, Mary
land, about four miles above this place,
from which the water never flows, except
at the close of some war. It opened (so
tbo story goes) a few days ago, and bag
been runnning ever since. It also opened,
it is said, at the close of the war of 1812,
the Mexican war, and the Florida war.
I do not pretend to vouch for the truth
of these rumors, for they are simply ab
surd; but if there are |any silly enough to
believe them, they are at perfect liberty to
do so.
The recent county election in Ohio
county created much enthusiasm in our
company. That i3 the way Ohio county
sbonld go. We were particularly gratified
to hear that Major Loring had heen beaten
by Mr. Joseph Seybold, as he (Loring) is
regarded by the majority of us, at least a
sympathizer with secession.
The New State election also pleased us
greatly. We believe *e gentlemen elect* d
will prove to bn the right men in the right
place. They should have our cordial sup
port until they show themselves unfit fur
the great trust reposed in them. But 1
have no fears for tbera, for their records
are everything that could be desired.
Bat I will close, as I have written more
than I intended when I began. Moro anon.
Truly yours, Fifteenth.

Mrs. Sarah Varser?My Dear Wife and
loved Children:?I take my pen in hand,
with devout gratitude to Amigbty God, to
inform you that I am free, that 1 am par~
doned. This great boon I have received
through the goodness of God and my
earthly friends in Wheeling, aud our good
and considerate President.
I am now in Baltimore, on my way to
Washington City, D. O., for the purpo.-c of
obtaining work that I may furnish myselt
with means to reach my once happy home.
Write me there on receipt of this, as my
heart is full of auxiety and solicitude on
your account. I owe my deliverance to
the kind hearted Marshal of West Virginia.
His noble letter to me is defaced with my
tears of gratitude. I want you to pray
for the President aod Marshal. We have
no way to reward their disinterested
goodneess but to present them in our
heartfelt petitions to onr Heaveuly Father.
Ob, may he bless them a9 1 do aud as you
will, and reward their goodness a thousand
fold.
Sarah, ray lovely, my dear wife, and
little childreu, at this momeut my heart,
my soul, Is happy iu the Lord. The
knowledge that you still live and love roe.
and that I have kind aud sympathizing
friends, in Wheeling aud elsewhere, and
am free fills me with love to God aud good
will to man. Farewell my loved ones for
a short time; we shall soon meet (tgain, by
the grace and goodness of Providence,
which I now know smiles on us. I shall
soon earn enough to Jtake mo home.?
I shall see you the first possible moment.
I trust you may receive this letter soon,
and that you will not loee a moment's lime
in answering it, directing yours to Wash
ington. I have shed many tears over
Marshal Norton's letter to me. Just now,
loves, we are parted aod scattered abroad,
bat we pray for each other, relying on
God.
Your loving aod grateful
husband and father,
