But jvocafe an honorable peace, a thing that with all of his scolding, weeping and j would enable them "to get to their lamentation, he does not forget his homes and their families, which is the natural habit lying.

Mr. Lin deeply implanted, would be very liardj coin's war policy is only calculated to to eradicate, as his ease is a good ex- j prolong the war, bring ruin upon the ample. He commences his article by ; country, mike rich contractors, keep saying, that only "two or- three Iinn-jup officers, and Government officials, Democrats" were present "from dif- j at largo salaried, who do nothing, and ferent parts of the c&unty." This j have a lot of worthless negroes to he knew was a falsehood but then a! take the place of these soldiers at falsehood is essier for him to write! home. We know we are right in op than the truth, as his readers can tes tify. His whole article abounds with sach glaring falsehoods and misrep resentations, as the. one above allud ed to; but then he could not help .... . 1. .. . n .i t tli ' o truth about a Democratic meeting or a political subject, is something he never attempted, and at this late pe : riod of his life, it . is not supposeable that ho ever will. In the previous articles, in his paper, about the Democratic Mass Meeting on the 7th inst., written by himself and his scribblers, their whole theme was, that it wa3 a Vallandigham-Dohahue meeting, and that Mr. Estep did not approve of the meeting, nor would he take any part in it. He has, fortu nately, had sense enough to discover that his falsehoods about Mr. Estep, were injurious to his rotten nnd cor rupt party, and he now goes off in a ritwtack, by calling the editor of this paper, a "traitor," "butternut," and such like names, as a man of his small calibre would naturally use. But then, Mr. Hatton, yott and your scrib blers may call us whatever names you choose, so that you nor they do not call us an Abolitionist that would Le offensive. But then the main portion of his article is a personal attack on ns--just 6uch a one as Mr. Hatton glories in writing. Our readers will all bear ns witness, that for years, we have en deavored, through the columns of our paper, to treat Mr. Hatton, as if he were a gentleman, whether he was one or not; and if in replying to bis arti cle of last week, we should show him np in his true colors, it may be charg ed to the fact, that it is occasionally necessary to expose Knaves and by- procrites, in order to let community know the true character of tho man ihat now makes such loud pretensions ibout his patriotism, loyalty and de votion to the Government. . We make no denial of the fact that we arc a member of the Harrison County Military Committee; and that we labored earnestly, and with all the power and inflaence we had, until the President issued his disunion, aboli tion, emancipation proclamation, to induce men to volunteer in defense of jtie government. These are two facts that we do ot, nor wish, to deny. Our appointment as a member of the Military Committee was brought a bont withotit our knowledge or consent, aad given to us , by the Republican rtffice holders f Harrison county. We. 'accepted the appointment, and have endeavored to do all that laid in pur power,, to assist and aid tho sol diers ia the field, and their families at iome; and to recommend suitable per sona for commissioned officers, without regard to their politics. We also in-ducod-Pien t? Tolunteer to aid and de fend thcOTernim?nt,bolicTrng that with, tkeir aid, ' and the' help: of the large" majority of tho people in the Fouth, who were Union men, as Mr, Lincoln told the country on the 4th day f July, 1801, existed in erery State of the Union except-South ' Carolina, the government could bo restored by having a large army in the field. But ylien fttr, Lincoln, as commander-dri. thief of the armj nd nary of the Unite i States, issued Lis disunion, nejjro freedom, abolition, mncipa lion proclamation in September, 18G2, thereby ili-ivinc out this larre Union sentiment of the South, without nkch ! ,.

" j turco ot onn. we ceased our eflorts to j iii'luce men to volunteer; and if Mr. 1 " . c J.musrj ProcUmatwn?, when he call ed out the seventy five thousand men in April, 1SC1, we woul I have Buffer ed our right arv to have been takeu from onrbcrtj, before we would have used the Erst effort to have induced any person to volunteer. Y were deceived. We thought until Septem ber, 1SC2, Mr. Lincoln's object was to Tcstore the Union, although ' ttc wore j 4oKl different 1y our bent friend?; but liis j proclamation of that date satisfied us j fcliat he, and the party he acted with, j were as prent ilisuiiiomsts, if not worse than Jeff. Davis and his crew. As we . u " u.ruinui, c msi-u ij e"P And we will say here, that anything we can now do to assist the soldier in tho field, or aid his family nt home, will etill be done with all tho power we possess. We oppose Mr. Lincoln's posing Mr. Lincoln's war policy, and we shall continue to oppose it, the joers, taunts and threats of army offi cers, contractors, government pluncU ircrs, and abolitionists to the contrary ' n ritvc I tl icfa rA in rr While we were doing what we have mentioned above, wc will let our read ers see what the editor of tho Rcpub lican, Mr. Richard Ilattan, the gen tleman, who is now in for such a vig- :orous prosecution of the war, and call all who do not agree wilh him, "dis loyalists," and "traitors," done. What did this same Mr. Hatton do for "the vigorous prosecution of the war," un til the President issued his abolition-disunion-negro-freedomemancipation-proclamation in 18G2? When compa nies were being raised and military meetings held in this county, and it was necessary to have bills printed, Mr. Ilatton's almost universal reply to gentlemen who went to his office to get them printed, was, "that he had not time to print them, and that they had better go to the Sentinel office, and get the job done." When any of his em ployees would volunteer, he always showed his bad humor, and in one in stance, abused, through his paper, the recruiting officer, Lieutenant John Brown. The only earnest efforts he lias used towards a "vigorous prosecu tion of the war," was to get commissions for his relatives and political friends; but whenever any of his relatives or friends went into the army as private soldiers, he spared no exertions to get them discharged from the service; and out of the seven, that he boasted last fall, had gone from his office "to help put down the rebellion," only one re mains in the service, Mr. John Fogle, now at home, wounded; and who, by the way, might have been First Lieu tenant of his company when it first or ganized, had not this same Richard Hatton used his influence against Mr. Fogle, because he had left his employ, and done what he could to secure the election of Lieutenant Brown to that position, (the same gentleman he after wards abused through his paper,) hoping thereby to be able to secure Brown's influence in helping him to get the nomination of County Treasurer that fall. In all of his acts, since the war began, he hasshown the petty dem agogue politician. He hag always op posed persons getting commissions in the army who did not agree with him in political sentiments. This fact is universally known. And while we were doing all we could, as he acknowl edges in his last paper we were, to assist the Government in putting down the rebellion, he himself,' his associate editor, of three months fume, and his correspondents, aliased the columns of his Yapcr, to slander and abuse us, and tell the public that we were disloyal and no friend of the Government, and that the people ought 'not to permit the Cadiz Sentinel to be printed: The only real effort h ever' used to influ ence men to volunteer in this county, as Captain Brown said, wag, when one of hii relatives (a very worthy man) was getting np a company; and when hU own son had to run off to join that . company, he never rested "until he Lad 'Lira, discharged from thi lervice,' ' His abnse of Democratic twicer in the ar my, and the soldiers too, if he dare, is universally known. The files of his paper show, that every foul name his vocabulary could furnish, Las been used about Democratic officers, who were doing allthey could to aid the Govern ment to put down the rebellion; while he could not find fulsome praiiso enough for abolition officers who have dono nothing, btrt loaf about tho country, and draw their salaries regularly from the frovernmtnt. ' . . And this is the man, that tells his fellow-citijcns, who are as good Union men ns ever the sun shone upon, when they meet to hear the questions of the day discussed, that they "arc at heart, false to their country." Is not this man, Richard Hatton, a pretty fellow to talk about other men's loyalty? But hat brtter could be expected of a man, whose only desire in seeing the war continue, is to enable him to be the Collector of Taxes off of an oppressed people, caused by the wiekedneNS of seovsMonisni, and his darling principlo, abolitionism.

Cmiiz IhpubUcixn. fQ'If sucli a thing were possible, the crimson must have come to the check of Mr. Hatton, when he penned in 'the above, the sentence, tluit ''it is evident that a secret political organi zation, known as the 'Knights of the Golden Circle,' now exists in this county." He knew when ho was writing that sentence that he was tell ing a wilful, malicious and deliberate falsehood, a thing, by tho way, that he does with more ease than to eat a meal when he is hungry. He knew very well that no such a society exists or ever did exist in this county, ftmi; t.1. r-hnr.ro U hnsn slander on the n ....tf i;.n XUlIiUvil a Ll Jjaii i j Ui Jinn 1.JUU ju ii i.jf One of the purposes for which he j wrote the falsehsod was to deceive a lot of irrnomit, bigoted Abolition ists, a ppecies of quadrupeds that this county is very unfortunately troubled with; and to give an excuse for orgnn iziii secret Jacobin clubs in different' parts of the county. The party to which Mr. Hatton belongs,' and labors for, has become so corrupt and tyran nical, that he, with the Government officials, county office holders and ex pectants, in this county, have, after; a great deal of caucussing, come to the sage conclusion, in order to help save their sinking party and to cover up their own corruption, to organize se cret Jacobin clubs, under the misnam ed title of "National Union Associa tion." The leading object of these clubs, as shown by their action in other places, is to threaten and intim idate persons and presses from speak ing of tlieir party and their party's political actions in the manner they deserve. But their object in this par ticular will signally fail. Neither Democrats nor Democratic presses will cease to expose the disunion, pro fligacy and corruption of Abraham Lincoln, and his tools or minions, un til they are driven from power and place by an outraged people. Another object of these Jacobin clubs is to establish a central despotio monarchial government a govern ment that does away with State au thorities and State laws, as the follow ing test oath, which every person is bound to take before he can become a member of these Jacobin clubs, will show: Obligation. I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support, protect and de fend the Constitution and Government ol the United States against all enemies, wheth er domestic or foreign, and thai I will bear true faith, allegiance, and loyalty to the same, any ordinance, retioiution or law of any Htate Convention or Legislature, to the contrary notwithstanding; and, further, that 1 do this with a' lull determination, pledge and purpose, without any mental reservation or evasion whatsoever so help me Gd," The thing was gotten up in Cincin nati, by the same men in that city who took such an active part in get ting up Know Nothing Lodges in Ohio, in 1854, and robbing its mem bers. It will, however, soon die out -die of its own rottenness and cor ruption. We make this prediction, and we wish it to be placed on record every respectable man, who joins these Jacobin clubs, will be ashamed to acknowledge that he ever was .a member of such a den of infamy and corruption before twelve months rolls around. They are gotten up and started by base corrupt- politicians; men who are eterpaljy seeking office roen who could not get a dosen votes for any office in any respectable . day- light nominating coon vention,' and are known by the title of "played out pol iticians."

' As the Republican said last - week "we are permitted to make the foK lowing extract from a private letter recently received from a member of Captain Voorhces' company:" "The abolitionists say here that they don't want the war to end until the negroes are free, that is what lew we have in our company, and I suppose ycu know them. The abolitionists calls us Democrats, old secern, and tell us that we aro in the wrong armv. B., I wantyouto stick to the old Democratic party, for they can't turn me.

Hatton, that it is just as eapy to publish extracts from one side of the army as the other? jCQpMr. Hatton and his corres pondents, have, for weeks, been abu sing and misrepresenting Mr. Dona hue, through the Republican; and when Mr. Donahue writes a reply to these misstatements, and requests Mr. Hatton to publish it, ho has not the magnanimity to do so. Such conduct is dishonorable in any journalist. Mr. Donahue's reply will be found in another column. " g3Wc agree with the article frtmi the Mt.

EniToH: A man styling himself a "citizen dmocrt" has written two eommu n cations which were inserted in the two last Iwoesof the Republican, in which the doinocra'ic call for a mass meeting is mis- a nstrtisd, and aUo their author says, that ' h had been ciedibly informed that I, jn a speech recently delivered in Stump'own. ex pressed a wish to God that the goternment might fail ta cruh the rebellion " Mr. lia'ton, 1 hope you will do me the justice oi publishing a correction of this mis connrnc ion. and also want I auonose this . . . rr - - ci izcn democrat's in'ormant had reference io in his personal charge against me. Oqr call implies, that no law annul 1 be estab lished or ruler elected that would do violence to the teelings of all Ihe weli disposed cili zens of a Slato or Sta'es. In speaking of the establishment of laws or government to the end of commanding the voluntary re spect ol men, re 'erenco is ncviT had to the voluntary respect of criminals, as the author of these commun;ca.ions would have us be liove. The principle has reference alone to laws or gorernment lor rejj,ulatinsc citizens who are disposed to act in accordance with tlieir ho:iest convictions as to their rights. Cm we for a moment suppose, that Jeffer son hid in view, criminals, when he express- ed tho sentiment that no g-ve mneu'. should be established that had not its foundation in the consent of tho gnernel. Or did he not ren'Iy mean that, in acordance with his Mem ol liberty, no government should be ettal li-li d or perpotiiaod that did nol com mind the co 'seat of the well disposed citi fna of that govarnmcnt. We think all will agree that ha latter was his meaning. In accordance wiU this principle, the call f.ir a Democratic mass meeting declares that the Djinooratie party "will never assist in compelling the eitite people of any State or Sta'es to obey laws through constraint." What we mean by this is, that we will nev er BSsi-tt in en'orcing obedience, where all the well di-ipoed citizens of a S'a'epwhb ait from an honest conviction of Iheir lights, rsfu'e to obey. En'oicen.ent of obedience in such a case, would be contrary to ihe ge nius of our government. When the honest people of ft State oppose, in the capacity of a State, it is folly in the goneral government to attempt the enforce tnent of obedience. To compel obedience in this case would be to war against the educa tion of the American people and their con sequent tendency of mind. This principle is one whose paternity is chimed by Jeffer son and all those that sign d the Declaration of Independence. Yet we have a man de claring himself a Democrat, asserting that he believes "in true democratic principles,' who denies the doctr nes of Jefferson, and asserts that it "smells mightily of treason to advocate them. If a Democrat, he must be a bastard one, since he denies or knows not his paternity. In view of my unalterable attachment to this Jcffersonian principle, and the altachp ment which I believe every true American ci'izen entertains for it, I did declare, in the speech relerred to, , that I did not believe there was an American cttiz'n who was not ready to exclaim, "I hope to God that my eyes may never be allowed to behold a gov ernment held together by force;" aBd that God, by a display of l.is goodness ard wis. doin would visit all such governments with vengeance, until governments everywhere would be forced to the acknowledgment, that their chief strength lies in the com'cnl of the governed We hope this democrat or dem ocrats will make his or their name known, so that the aposMes o' this "third party" will be feen and known of all men.
