This gentleman wh? kas been known at the South in former years a? a D?mocratie politician of New York city, ba* ju-tty distinguished bhn ?elf more recently os a man of remarkable bold ness and moral courage by ? fair and fearless dis cussion of the present relations between the gav era menu ?nd people of the two sections of the cuntry. ' Mr. WOOD has fully and most fearlessly committed himself against .tho present Federal Administration, and the further prosecution of the war. ' On tko 7:h of April, a vast audience ?otembled ?t tho Cooper Institute, New York Ci.y, to inaugurate formally,' ? political party, j solely ?nd professedly tor peace; peaoa by rennion, If the Confederate States will upon, any term* re-unite witk that people who have wasteland desolated eur land ; and if not, Then peace anyhow, upon the basis pf two independent government*. Mr. WOOD was the principal speaker, ?nd right ably ?nd powerfully did ho represent his party.* The speech ba* appeared in lome of onr public print* ; ?nd our purpose ii now limply to aotioe lemo of tho more noteworthy pointa mada by ?ir, ' WOOD. Tho speak er wai very honest and vary fair in stating tho fall strength of the war'partjrj nt the North. Thia party, ai shown by him, is composed of various elassos and varions interests, ?il of whom, and ?ll of which, ?re promptod, ex cepting tho abolitionists proper, by the single mo tive of money. Contractors, employers, manu facturers for Uovernmont, bunts and bank officers, stockholders and stockjobbers, railroads, their . officers, shareholders ?nd creditors, the debtor ehuu of th* community-who want to keep money plenty, and get out be/ore the erasA-the President, cabinet and ofiEoe-holdirs-?ll these desired the prolongation of the war,, ?nd not its termination on any account, or ?ny terms, becaute very large disbursements of Government credit would enable them to make large gains; whereas a termination of the war would either curtail their profits, for feit their occupations, or involve them in the com mon financial min, whieh seemi inevitable in any event More than twelve hundred thousand men, not tn the army, Mr. Wo OD alfi rms,, are thus bribed by the government, and for government, to clam or for too prosecution of the war. - The President and cabinet, he further suggests, desire the con tinuance of tho war in order to wield ? power which will secure them ia powor 'for ? time-or for life, if they dare to try it In addition to this con-up t horde, there ?re the real Abolitionists who kate the South and ber in stitutions, ?nd want, the whole people and proper ty of tko Sooth annihilated. Notwithstanding this formidable array of num ber? and of iafluenoe, Mr. WOOD brarely declares the people of ike Noni, whoso liberties ?nd hap piness aro at stake np?n. tho issue, ?ra Sweaty timei $trong?r,U they will ooinbloo to put do wa thio miserable fuotion which is driving on wildly and madly to ruin and detpotism. Mr. Woon frankly'and defiantly affirms'thai the Lincoln Government is tar beneath that oi the Confederate States; that it is seeking lo con vert a free republican Government in tu a military dvspltism ; thatjt,wuuld not lu-ten to Jerula of i pacin~iufion, ii sueb were .offoredj thal its main j objects e?n only be aceompliidied by the euutinit j 4?ee ?f th? uar; that b< could demon^rate, that, j fr?ii the military conduct of the wai, the Line?lo i Cabinri did not intend, had not sought, th'eclwrin.g , of the ./arr. * ' ' Again, so late as the 3rd of June, Mr. WOOD has been the principal speaker at another such meeting in New York City. We prophesied twa weeks back that nothing would ocme of this con vention, but after noting^lts proceedings, marked by energy, directness and enthusiasm, we are in olined to think differently. "The bold, open, straight-forward, statesmanlike speech of Mr. WOOD, on this latter occasion, aW?bave doubtless road ; it speaks for itself and needs no distended comment. We are much pleased upon the'whole with these-speeches of Mr. WOOD. He ?snow the leader of the party at the North, which aimB at peace, either With, er witlStUt- reconstruction or re-union. Tnis language is intelligible. There is,co mistaking the purpose of this party. We can "most effectually aid Mr. WOOD, ansi the men who are working with bim in every one of the United'States, by abstaining from bitter and abusive words of him and hip party; and by speedy erushing and deciding victories over the Yankee armies now invading and desolating the land- Effort-action-result ! ' .. ?-? -- .should wc ho DiscouragedT. Our fortunes are incomparably more promising and bright tn-day than they were just twelve months ago. Tl'he prospects of the foe are far less flattering than tiny were at tbe same period.. Our army never was so numerous-so well equipped-so-well disciplined-so well clothed and fed-so well commanded-so healthful 'and so confident of niece's as at this moment It is ap parent to the dullest mind that the enemy is dread fully afraid of us. They plan, and scheme, and proclaim what ts to be done, but they do it ut t, nor attempt it Gen. LEE, after having most Sig nally defeated HOOKER at Chancellorsville, is now I sweeping on Northward, or, for all we-know, West ward. Why may he not go into "Kentucky as well < as into Pennsylvania ? Already wo hear of hie brilliant sucpesses ; Winchester has f?llen, and j Harper's Ferry (so say Northern papers) been evacuated without a bUw being struck. What may be the ulterior designs of Gen. LEE, no pri 1 vate citiscn knows, lie is one of those sagacious military men, who instead of being controlled by cireurrstan.ee?, avails himself of them to cany on t bis own designs, which, at the same time in volve the honor and interests of the Confederacy. Of one thing we may rest satisfied, if he has with drawn the larger portion of hi? large army from the heights of Fredericksburg, and has marched thom t? Bum? post Lj^hcr up the river, or even beyond the river, that b? bo* o?rt?,i>rr -not taft Richmond unguarded against any and every con tingency; and if he proposes to penetrate tho enemy's cotrntry, disposing of any opposition that he may etodunter from* Gen. HOOKER or any other Yankee General on the way, that it is beoause be is a brave Q,id skillful man, and thinks that the time for offensive operations, and perhaps for in vasion, has arrived, and, relying on the God of battles, means to venture on '.lea, comp what may. . In tbe meantime, our own d>"patches from Vicksburg, via Jackson and Mobile, meagre and indefinite though they be, continue to be favora ble, and derive at least partial confirmation by intelligence received from the North. All tlie assault) upon the fortifications at Vicksburg have been most disastrously unsuccessful ; tbe' Yankee s bave now sent for spades, and hereafter the work of reducing Vicksburg will be done more by dig ging than hy charging. Eut in that hereafter, Gen. JOE. Jon.*: ot?, Gen. KIRBY Sunn, the bad water and bad climate of the lower Mi6cL*rippi, wiil all play important roles. After the crushing repulse at Charleston, all the boasts and hopes of the foe teem to have "van ished into air-into thin air,", and they have col lapsed inte distrust of their monster iron-clads, and acknowledge Charleston impregnable. .AD MIRAL FOOTS has sucoeeded the unsuccessful DU PONT in command of the South Atlantic Squad ron j be will come, will "cuta caper," and then "go down." , The little saeoess recently achieved in Louisiana ls on a small seale, and can have little to do with I the ultimate issues o' the war. . The Yankees j have learned that it is not overrunning territory, but conquering arm ia that alone can give them the mastery. Se far from destroying our great armies, they aro afraid to engage them in conflict. Meanwhile the Yankee government grows into disrepute and contempt with its own people, and among the nations of the earth. Opposition to the war grows in strength and intensity daily, and a partyj?r peace promises to sweep over the States of tho North. "Meanwhile Europe manifests its confidence in our permanency in thc most unmistakable manner by tho test of credits advanced in geld. Moanwhile the sickly season advances-that same arm of Providence which dismissed forty thoutand men from Halleok's army a year ago. Meanwhile, if we may believe what we read, a steel-clad fleet of war, equal to all the . tasks boforo it, is being prepared, which-wiH open our ports, restore our commerce, relieve our seaports, and send their garrisons into the field to drivo the Yankee to his own seil.
