TnE ATTENTION OF THE PUBLIC
is onlled to the above Furnaces, as they combine
ventilating with heating quulities.
The inventor has, after years of experiments, suc
ceeded in perfecting what he claims to be the best
Furnace now in ne. Among its many advantages
over the ordinary Furnaces, are:
The small amount of fuel required to keep it in
Keeping the rooms constantly supplied with pure,
fresh air, drawn from Nature's inexhaustible stock
out of doors. .
Large Air Chambers, avoiding the confinement of
beat in heated walls and hot metal ohambersi
Improved Water Chambers, which keep up a
steady supply of moisture, which overcomes the
great objection to ordinary Hot Air Furnaces.
The castings are heavy, and strongly bolted to-
E ether, guaranteeing durability under any degree of
Particular attention is called to the SELF-REGULATING
ARRANUEMENT of this Furnace, which
has been pronounced by scientific men to be the
BEST EVER MADE.

Cincinnati, Miirch 17. 1WS3.
Mr. P. Martin, of this city, has cnuMrunted a"llot
Air Furnace" in the Srcond Reformed Church (cor
ner Findlay and Kavmillnr strerts), which has thus
far given ontire satisfaction. Fur efficiency in warm
ing, purity of air, and economy of fuel, we can speak
of it in most favorable terms. Its permanency and
durability also seem to promise well. The plan of
draught and ventillation is good.
From our experience, wo can recommend Mr. Mar
tin as an adept in the art of wnrming buildings, and
as quite competent to give ciitifffu'tion in the con
struction of Furnaces wherever practicable.

and Madison and the practical teachings of
Douglas in his great contest lor extending
popular sovereignty over domestic matters
from the States to the Territories. ' is 1C a
Republican ? I refer him to the Chicago
platform, which resolves that "the mainte
nance, inviolate of the rights of the States
and especially the rights of each State to
order and control its own domestic institu
tions according to Its own Judgment exclu
sively, is essentiul to that balance of power
on wiiich the perfection and endurance of
our political fabric depends." Is it the
members of the last Congress? I refer them
to the Crittenden resolution, as to the rltrhts.
dignitv, and equality of the States. In it
you, Alf. Speaker, the exponent of the will
of this body ? I refer you to the resolution
you voted: "That neither the Federal Gov
ernment nor the people, or the governments
of non-slaveholdlng States, have a purpose
or a constitutional right to legislate upon or
interfere with slavery iu any of the States
of the Union." Is It the President himself ?
Oh ! shameful treachery ! Shame to himself
and treachery to the trusting ! Shall I re
call his repeated sayings by proclamation,
calling on soldiers to peril their lives, or by
message, giving us his solemn convictions
of duty? Shall I refer to bis message
wherein he repudiated tbe idea of disturb
ing the system of slavery, as foreign to his
inclination and his duty, or to his direction
to Mr. Seward to inform foreign powers
that any effort to disturb that system "on
his part would be unconstitutional ?" Is it
the philosophio thinker? I refer him to the
exposition of M. De Tocquevllle (Vol. 1,
page (!)), who, better than any oneabroad.has
examined the complex nature of our Gov
ernment, beginning with the township and
rising through many grades to the Federal
authority, and who 'found here, "two gov
ernments, completely separate and almost
Independent tlieoue fulfilling the ordinary
duties, and responding to the daily and in
finite calls of a couiniunitv, the other cir
cumscribed within certain limits, and only
exercising an exceptional authority over
the general interests of the country."
These expressions were made in view of
or in time of war. The Independent spheres
of National and State Governments were
ever regarded, In words, if not In acts, by
the very party in power: and now their test
of loyalty is an oatli to forswear their own
oaths! Xow their touch-stone of patriotism
is an oath to commit political turpitude!
And this is called an amnesty! This oath
which is to be taken at once by loyal and
disloyal men, Is to be the sweet oblivious
balm over past crime by a clement Execu
tive! This battering down of tho Consti
tution is to be Aladdin witchery, which in
a night is to reconstruct a "perpetual cos
mos of beauty and power, out of the chaos
of civil conflict." Because we do not shout
hosanniihs to this new cosmos, Democrats
are reproached as favoring slavery. -No, sir.
We do not like slavery. For one, I 6ay
again as I have said before, let it die, if die
it must, not by the rough usages of war,
not by the starvation, miscegenation or ex
tirpation of the black race, not by the
strangulation of State and popular sover
eignty; but by the voluntary and legal ac
tion of the States, when they are in a con
dition freely to express their choice. Why
use the sentiment against slavery to crush
out the fundamental principles of our Gov
ernment? Why. in striving to destroy slav
ery drag down the pillars of the Constitu
tion? When to kill slavery you destroy the
"balance of power on which the perfection
and endurance of our political fabric de
pends," I must, and will denounce you.
llow many expressions from the other side
of the chamber have I been called upon to
denounce, because they urge the abandon
ment of our old and rare political fabric
These expressions are all iinpearled by an
exquisite thinker of the radical school
Senator Gratz Brown, when he says:
"Whocaresfor the Union of the past a Union
fraught with seeds of destruction bitter with
humiliations and disappointment? Who believes
in the grief of thee hired mourners, so lacbrymoie
before tbe world? They are not even self-iioceivel.
It is likewise with reconstructions a free masonry
that imacine it bai only blocks and stones to deal
with, orachild's play, that would build up as they
have tumbled down its card -castles, putting affably
the court cards on top again. Foolish craftsmen,
seeing not that it is the lile arteries and the thews
and the sinews of a nation's being that are dealt
with, and that it must be regeneration or death."
The Union thus dismissed with so much
scorn, is the same Union which Lord
Brougham called (Political Philosophy, port
III, Doge 336) "the very greatest refinement
in social policy, to which any state of cir
cumstances had ever given rise or to which
any age has ever given birth," which de
served his eulogy, because, as he held there
was in It, the means for keeping its in
tegrity as a Federacy, by the maintenance
of the rights and powers of the individual
Tho Union as It should be tho Union of
the "wise craftsmen" of to-day and not of
tho foolish fathers who made It la not the
Union 1 have learned to admire and loved
to cherish; not the Union, which for the
past seven years, I have plead here to main
tain without blood and perpetuate without
These plans of regeneration Involve a
change in the structure of the Government.
They break down the spirit of municipal
Independence, In destroying which, as De
Tocquevllle has shown, you destroy the
spirit of liberty. No matter what fbrm Is
left, the despotic tendency will Inevitably
appear, when the local authority is usurped.
If you leave any form of Government, It is
the will ot the Executive, it Is a despotic
centralization : Russian, Asiatic the rule of
Military Bashaws, or provincial Kinglets.
Whether appointed by Congress or the
President they hold their power from
Washington, and they must remain at the
head of their troops, and at the call of their
chief.' : Our Republic then, deserves not its
name. It is no longer the " United States."
It is a United Slate, a geographical unit,
holding together subject provinces by tho
brute lorce of petty tyrants. J
Believing that the scope and aim of the
proclamation will not restore the Union,
uor propitiate any portion of the South,
except demagogues and hirelings, who sell
their birthright for the price of power, let
ns inquire what motive oould have Induced
the President to proclaim It, in a moment
of success to our arms and depression to
the South. One suggestion will satisfy as
to the motive. I am sorry to believe It:
but tbe President desires renoralnatloii.
He Is a man whose mind has every angle,
but the right angle. - la his natnre-cun
nlngcOiltends' With fanaticism. ' From the
time he developed his Irrepressible conflict
doctrine, so much praised by the gentleman
from Illinois, (Mr. Arnold) until Its latest
expression In his last message, bis course
has been equivocal. But meanwhile how
shrewdly he has balanced between the
tactions oi nm party, uis inaugural
recognized, his obligations to . the Con
stitution. He would not interfere with
slavery. How , prodigal were . his . prom
ises to the Border. How quick to plant his
foot on Phelps, Hunter and Fremont for
playing Augustnlus. He desired some day
to play Augustus. Abolitionism should be
hatched mvigt no Influences but bis own.
How he lectured one of his editors for Im
patience. Conservatives held up his hands,
while he prevailed against these Kadlcali,
He toyed with emigration, colonization and
compensation schemes. He made a gradu
al emancipation theory with short fnse
which soon exploded. It hurt no one But
the time come for hitn to play revolution
ist; and with seeming reluctance, he issued
the - Proclamation of Emancipations He
desired the people to pass on it,' They did.
They condemned It in 1802. He adhered to
It. In his Springfield letter, and In his late
message, Tie dedicates all power to its exe
cution Meanwhile, a contest springs up
as to the State suicide doctrine. It divides
his party; and even the Cabinet.: He has
Missouri on his bands. Radicals are ram
pant. Her sets Conservative-awhile until
the days' of November, 1864, begin to p-.
proach: then, lo! this message as the cli
max of his long series of ambiguities.
That I may do the President no Injustice, I
quote froui-hla own partisans-Senator Pom
eroy, iu his circular, who says : "The peo
ple have lost all confidence in Mr. Lincoln's
ability to suppress the rebellion and restore
the Union, lie has been weak and vacilla
ting, wasteful of national blood and treas
ure, profligate and corrupt."
There is xnly one solution for these in
consistencies. He Is trying to please both
M ings of his party, to secure his nomina
tion. With dexterous chicanery he has
phrased and framed his late plan, so that It
may admit of two voices. lie will not give
up his Emancipation Proclamation or the
Confiscation and penal laws. '-To abandon
them now," he says, "would be not only to
relinquish a lever of power, but would also
be a cruel and an astouudlug breach of
faith." This should suit the Radicals. For.
a lighter shade of his party he promises
what is a mere delusion an adjudication
of the questions of their legality by the Su
preme Court. True, he uas declared .all
means like these which be now promulgcs,
unconstitutional; yet he would ' submit
them to the Court! When and how? Why,
after he has made the slave a freedmao. by .
the sword! What a mockery Is such a sub
mission. But it will do to make him a can
didate: and more than that. It might elect
lilni President. If his plan of making one
tenth rule in the States should succeed,
then he will have ready at hand, the elec
toral votes of Florida, Arkansas, Louisiana,
Tennessee, North Carolina, and other
States. He began this business In Florida
the other day, and the blood which flowed
at Olustee Is the result of this scheme of
Nine States, without South Carolina, rer '
resenting 679.310 voters in 1800, will now,
by this peculiar republican form of recon
struction, cast electoral votes for the 67,931,
who, as one-tenth are to . be registered.:
now many of these will be stipendiaries,
or how many bona fide citizens of the States?
But, surely a candidate with so fair a chance'
for a gigantic, almost a continental fraud as '
this, must commend himself to a party,
whose use of power has made a debtof two
billlonB and an expenditure equal to the ex
penditure of all former administrations.
Hence, when this amnesty to rebels .was
announced, it was regarded as a political;
movement only, and the excitement did not.
equal that of a prize fight. No one was
affected by it. o opponent was changed
to, and no friend alienated from the admin
istration, cither North or South. . If it bad
been an act of good faith aud not a partisan
manoeuvre, It ought to have bound closer
to the administration every friend, and
challenged tho admiration of every oppo
nent. The bells should have beeu rung, the
bou-llres blazed, and hnzzahs have rent the
air as the throb of hope pulsated through
the fevered veins of our nation. No such,
thing. It was nothing but a bold attempt
to perpetuate power, at the hazzard of rev
olutionary war In the North and protracted"
wariu the South. For as surely as the
great States of New York, New Jersey,- "
Pennsylvania and the Northwest, are over-,
borne by the coalition of these bastard '
States and rotten boroughs South, with '
New England abolition, so surely will the-'
tocsin ot Inevitable necessity Bound the.,
alarm of resistance throughout the land.,
The people may sleep now, drugged by the
opiate of temporary prosperity, but the ex- '
cftement of the Presidential election will -stir
to Its very depth tbe popular disafiee ,
tlon, and in wild saturnalia tne vessel of our
hopes may founder forever In a sea of
The pretence of the President is to recon
struct the Union. Where did he get his au
thority to build anew what we can never -agree
has beeu destroyed ? ' Is it a part ot '
the war power, or the pardoning power? If
is the "best mode the Executive can sng- ,
gest, with his present Impressions." Will ,
any one point out the clause of the Consti
tution which would even create an "linpres-
sion" that the Executive has the function r
either of Supreme Law Giver, State Con-.
structor or Supreme Dictator ! His meek-,
ness In referring to Congress and the Jn-
diclary.the legality of his acts, after they '
are accomplished, is a piece of effrontery, 1
to which Louis Napoleon has not yet ar
rived. Where did this unfledged Caesar get
his warrant to create Sovereignty ? i
In discussing this plan, it would be suf r
ficient without questioning the riyht of th
President to construct States on condition
or pardon on terms, 6iinply, to discuss T
whether the conditions and terms are wise, t
practical and likely to do good. But I pro- (
pose somewhat in detail to discuss the Pre..!
ident's plan, in the following order: ' ., .,
1st, tho oath; 2d, the republican form of
the government to be reconstructed; 3d,
the question whether the State governments
in the rebel States ure vital; . 4th, some .1
wise and practical plan such aa will aid ,
in restoring the Union under tho Coustl-
tution.- - m -..a.

They have been the bane and foil of good :
