Gen. Price is coming back into Missouri
at tlic head of his ragamuffins to inform
Gov. Gamble and the clique that control
him that the worst enemies of Missouri arc
not the men who seek the shortest feasible
way to rid her of Slavery forever. That
Missouri may not gamble away her cbance
for speedy redemption has been the prayer
of loyal men for months past. So Sterling

inlet’s Marine Brigade have been on a
wolf hunt up the Cumberland, and the
rebel prowlers went scuttling out ol range
at his approach. The flotilla went as far
as Florence, in Northern Alabama.
According to later reports, Dupont has a

Word he will say when he gels ready to
move again on Charleston. The Monitors
are not going to Mackinaw, or the fishing
banks, or to be sold for old iron, hat to
Charleston. The shippers of men and
money .by that line will be glad to knowit.
From the Lower Mississippi the news is
important and full of interest. We give
elsewhere the main new features present
cdhy affairs with Gen. Grant. The exploits
Of Farrngut, below him, are told officially.
One point, on the authority of oar “man
with the asthma,” we beg leave to doubt.
We arc afraid that when the Indianola
“slipped off” there were rebels on board
of her, and that the whole affair is a case
of marine ’possum. The rebels say the In
dianoia is somewhere, and as good as
new.
The evidence'from official sources is that
the tailless monkey, known and dreaded in
Copperhead circles as the blasted nigger,
Will fight, can handle a musket, can shoot,
can ride, will, and did join the expedition,
and did good service in Florida. We sus
pect that massa and his northern hounds
knew it all the time, and that was what
was the matter.
There are abundant tokens of warm
work in the various theatres of war. If
our own commanders do not initiate it the
rebels will. They openly boast before
Rosecrr.ns that they will overrun Tennes
see end Kentucky before midsummer. A
silly threat of course, but the letter of the
rebel Governor of Tennessee, which wc
give elsewhere, has this burden. The
rebels are also swarming into Southeastern
Virginia and North Carolina in force, but
seem to be more than evenly held by our
troops. The tlireatened descent of the
new Merrimac No. 2, from Richmond,
down the James river, is one of the same
class of tokens.
THE LATH ELECTION,
It is easy to trace the widely different
'extremes to be reached and relatively af
fected by the tidings .of the result of the
municipal election in this city, on Tuesday
last. On the one hand, there can be no
doubt as to how the news will be received
in the hottest inner circles of the rebellion.
Rebel leaders and rebel presses will
chuckle over it, claiming it as a significant
proof of disintegration in the loyal North.
And for precisely this seeming token, Mr.
Sherman’s leading partisans have been at
work. . On the contrary, the news of
a reverse to the Union party in this
city, will cause sadness in the hearts
of thousands to whom the Union is
dear, and its perils a matter of personal
burden and sorrow. It is but the voting
of a single city, in a local election, but it
Will be recognized as the movement of a
Beale beam and construed to record a wider
sweep, and results on a larger scale, for
this city is Ibc Metropolis of the Northwest.
Its voice will be claimed as expressing the
sentiment of the section ol which it is the
commercial centre. So loyal men will
everywhere regret, and rebels, and rebel
sympathizers, everywhere rejoice in the
re-election of Sherman in Chicago.
That this construction of the result is
wrong, a glance at the facts will show.
Figures will tell more unmistakably than
any other statement can do, precisely the
nature of this election. We give elsewhere
a review of the comparative features
and results. This shows certain promi
nent facts. First, that the vote
cast was the largest ever polled in Chica
go. That the accession of territory under
the new charter brought strength solely to
the Copperhead element, by including with
in the] limits certain fragrant precincts for
years past successfully mined for raw
voting materials for importations, hut now
for the first time voting in their own neigh
borhood at a Chicago election. Tiiat with
nil this accession of nearly seven thous
and to our total vote of last year, the ma
jority for Sherman in 1801 is re
duced • from over eleven hundred
to less than one hundred and
fifty. Accepting the entire Copperhead
vote as legal, and some points on that
subject arc given elsewhere in tills Issue,
the result cannot he hailed as a very happy
nuguiy for the Chicago Copperhead De
mocracy. Aside from the humiliation that
Chicago must bear in the infliction of a
Sherman and his managers for two years
longer, the Copperheads have nothing else
to exult in. Their days arc numbered.
Their lost penny is paid for the meal of
victuals now in their months.
We bid our Union friends elsewhere
mark these facts. Let them give our loyal
voters the credit ofliaving worked well and
. nobly. Against what they worked, wc
show elsewhere. The result they gained
is permanently recorded. In that they fail
ed to elect their ticket is a theme of chagna
and regret, but all is not lost The figures
they rolled up in the Union vole are the
emphatic voice of Chicago as sustaining
the Government and the war by the larg
est vote ever cast for Republican measures
in this city. None understand this better
than leading Copperheads, whose teeth are
not yet at rest from chattering at their nar
row escape, which after all is but a respite
fromtheir mire destruction.

A reputation for invincibility is, on some
accounts, a good thing. But then it may

has to- be helped away, for the time, to a

“southed,” as Ike Cook would say? All
that was needed on Tuesday was that
Truth’s friends should have stood in solid
phalanx about her. They did not do it.
A few miserable Groucbys did not come up.

and tearing down buildings, the fire was
checked about five o'clock, and at the present
writing Is pretty well subdued. Unless the
wind rises, no further danger is apprehended.
The loss will probably reach $1,590,000, some
of the occupants of buildings losing every

Washington, April 22.—The Navy Depart
ment has received the following official dis
patch, daUd United States Steamship Pensal
cola, off New Orleans, April 13th;
On the morning of the 27th ult, at about
daybreak, Admiral Farmgut, in the Hartford,
engaged the batteries at Warrenton, ten miles
below Vicksburg, and passed below it on the
morning of the 29th ult., before daylight,
(be Albatross having taken in a full supply of
provisions, from a barge which had been
Heated down the previous morning,
Admhal Porter also passed the Warrenton
batteries and anchored near the flag-ship.
About 1 a. m. the wharfboat Vicksburg,
having broken adrift from her moorings at
the city, floated dowdand ran ashore opposite
to where the Hartford and Albatross were
anchored. During tbo day an officer was sent
on board of the Vicksburg, who found that
all her machinery had been removed, and she
had nothing on board save four muskets and
accoutrements.
While the Admiral was hesitating as to tbo
propriety of retaining her as a wharf, or ra
ther depot, tbe rebels came down on the night
of fheJJOth and burned li:r.
The Switzerland, Hartford and Albatross,
after being all filled with coal and provisions,
passed Warrcnton on the morning of the 31»t
ult., and at daylight the little sqnadron pro
ceeded down the river to Turner’s plantation,
•where, on passing up, wc had seen the wreck
of the Indianola. We found no traces of the
wreck, but learned that it had slipped off into
deep water during the late gale. We an
chored here and remained until about C.50 p #
in., when we proceeded down and engaged the
battery at Grand Gnlf.
This battery consisted of some two or three
heavy guns sent down from Vicksburg. One
of these guns was mounted upon a steamer
which had been concealed up the big Black
River. The enemy had also a light field bat*
teiy. They struck ibe Switzerland twice, do
ing no damage. The Albatross was not struck
at all. The Hartford was struck only once,
but this shot killed one man. This was the
only casualty.
Wc passed this battery In about fifteen min
utes and anchored .below Grand Gnlf, destroy
ing on onr passage down a large number of
skiffs. On the morning of the 10th when we
got under weigh about 4 A. M. and proceeded
dor. u to Bayou Lara, where we stopped, seized
upon, and threw into the river about 10,000
saclis of corn and beef, and proceeded oh our
way to Port Hudson, where wc anchored
about live miles above the batteries on the

On the evening of the 7th inst. at 8 o'clock,
the writer of this communication and the
Secretary of the Rear Admiral left the Hart
ford and boarded the Richmond, off Baton
Rouge.
THE NEW SITUATION.
Onr dispatches as above seem to release the
seal of eccrccy under which we have held re
cent advices and sketches from our corres
pondents with Gen. Grant’s army, certainly
so far as the newly established fhlcmm below
Vicksburg Is concerned. The references to
the new canal and cut-off have been purposely
obscure for the past week or two, and as yet wc
hayc nothing definite relative to its completion
or success, further than the announcement
that Gen. Grant has gone down to Carthage,
La., to take command of the new operations
thence to be fulminated against Vicksburg.
Our map will show the route of tbe new cut
off, a canal opening from the Mississippi into
Walnut Bayou, about thirty miles above
Vicksburg, by means of which our transports
and convoying gunboats were to find their
way through the tortuous route of interlac
ing water courses and bayous, as laid down in
our small map, until the natural debouchure
of the last is reached at Carthage, La.
A brief tabic of distances will aid our read
ers:
From • To
New Orleans,.... Red River,.
Red River, Natchez,...
Natchez, Carthago...
Carthage, Warrcntou, 19
Warrenton, Vlck»hnig, 10
Our dispatches give ns no information as to
whether this new route has been made availa
ble, but we commit no indiscretion in giving
the reasons which have pointed out the fit
ness of the new pasl ion. The handsome
achievmcnt of Admiral Porter in running his
gunboats and transports by the rebel batteries
at Vicksburg, as confirmed in our dispatch
above, gives us a force, which in conjunction
with Admiral Farragut’s vessels, makes our
hold on the river secure, and completely sev
ere the Confederates in the gulf and sea-coast
States from their valuable Southwestern con
nections.

Washington, April 20.—L. D. Stlckucy,
United States Tax Collector of Florida and
Soutli Carolina, reported to day to the Govern
ment the absolute success of the experiment
of arming and organizing tbc slaves. He says
that tho late expedition which took and held
Jacksonville, Fla., was composed entirely of
black troops. They held the post two weeks,
were engaged almost every day with superior
numbers of the rebels, and in every instance
drove them. Afterwards, these black troops
were reinforced by a white regimeut—the
6th Connecticut volunteers—by no means fa
vorable to negro soldiers. In an engagement
with the rebel cavalry and artillery,'the (sth
Connecticut supported the Ist and 2d South
Carolina (colored.) After a severe engage
ment, in which the blacto were victorious,
this white regimeut declared it had no farther
prejudices against negroes who showed such
pluck.
While our troops occupied Jacksonville, the
rebel camp was eight miles distant. The
commander of the United States forces, be
fore making an attack, wished to destroy a
railroad bridge three miles in the rear of the
enemy. A negro volunteered to perform this
perilous feat. Taking three days’ rations in
his knapsack, a bottle of turpentine, a box of
matches and a pair of Colt’s revolvers, he dis
appeared at night The third day after, he re
lumed, having burned the bridge and recon
noitered tbc enemy’s camp, so as to famish
much valuablejinformalion.
A former expedition up St. Mary’s River,
by five companies of the Ist regiment South
Carolina volunteers, furnished equally con
clusive evidence of the bravery of the negro
troops. Marching at night through a thick
wood, they were attacked by rebel cavalry.
At the first discharge one man was killcd and
four wounded; but instead of a panic, the
blacks promptly returned the fire, emptying
twelve rebel saddles at the firs: discharge.
The uniform testimony of all the officers is
that the colored troops, when brought under
fire, need check more than spur.”

[Special Dispatch to tbo Chicago Tribune.]
Sr. Lons, April 22,15G3.
Information of a reliable character has been
received, representing that the rebel force
now in Southeast Missouri is huger than be
fore stated, and it is not improbable that Price
himself may be in the State.
The force which engaged the garrison at
Patterson, onMonday, was only the advance
guard of the rebels. Their numbers are csti
matedby the country people, who havo.llcd to
Pilot Knob, nil the way from 12,000 to 35,000.
The lowest figures arc probably the nearest
correct. All our troops have fallen back to
Pilot Knob, and reinforcements were arriving
in sufficient strength to repel any serious
demonstration. The rebel advance is proba
bly a feint to draw of Gen. Herron’s attention,
while the real blow comes from another quar
ter. There is great activity at headquarters,
and the necessities of the situation arc thor
oughly appreciated.

a pretty lough time in his whistle througS

the demoralized rabble at Little Rock, last
week, and promised, among other things, to
speedily break the shackles from poor, down
trodden Missouri, and drive the Abolition in
vaders, together with that arch old traitor
and usurper, Gov. Gamble, to the east bank
of the Mississippi. He was co mpliraentary to

that degenerate son of Missouri, who had
crawled on his knees to Abraham Lincoln for
greenbacks to pay Missourians for murdering

your headquarters in Ullnoistown.”

Stories about rebel -cavalry being in the

towards Maryland, are believed to be wholly
unfounded.
Gen. Stahl’s cavalry hayethoronghlysconted

straggling guerillas.
Several new encampments have been noticed
within a day or two at Fredericksburg, and
the opinion is now prevalent in our army that
the rebels arc bclug rapidly reinforced.
Our nine months men wd two years men,
whose time has nearly expired, are groaning
about tbc probability their time being

from the time of mustering in.

The rebel, Gov. Wise, has been recalled
from the command in front of Williamsburg,
aud Gen. Hood placed in command.
[Correspondence of the 2T. T. Trlbnno.]
Yorktowx, Va.,2April 16.—Our loss sus
tain* d during the buttle of the 11th iust., at
■Williamsburg, was one man wounded and five
prisoners; that of the enemy was 50 killed
and wounded, and 30 prisoners.
Gen. Wise, with 3,000 men, still occupies
Williamsburg, which he took during the but
tle. We only had a few pickets stationed
there. In a late speech, which Wise made
to his troops, he stated that he was waiting for
re-Inforccmcnts, and that when they arrived
he should renew the attack on
Fort Magruder, which ho was going to take at
‘any cost, and he knew that ho could do it.
Wise men should not bo guilty of such vain
boasting. Wc hope he will try it. Yester
day, Gen. E. D. iveyes sent a flag of trace
bearing an order for the citizens of Williams
burg to leave the place immediately, as ho
was about to shell the town. Fort Magruder
has been reinforced by some heavy guns, and
a gunboat has gone" up the York River and
one up the James River, on cither side of the
town. It will bo but a short time after the
fire has been opened from each of these di
rections before Williamsburg will be one
among the places that were. It will be a jn«t
retribution on the inhabitants, for they are all
bitter enemies to their country, and hare been
known to fire from the windows of their
houses upon our soldiers repeatedly.
THE FIGHT ON THE NANSEMOND RIVER.
The action on the Npnsemond occurred on
the 14th inst., with’good results. The lit
tle wooden river steamers, Mount Wash
ington and Commodore Barney, fought from
half-past eleven in the morning until five in
the evening, against a strong “force of rebel
artillery and sharpshooters on the shore.
The Mount Washington was disabled and
but not surrendered nor destroy
ed; at high water she was towed away for
repairs. The Commodore Barney had eight
rating shots and numerous balls from sharp
shooters. The result of the fight was, that
the rebel batteries were silenced, and, two
days afterwards, they were believed to be
retreating. At the end of the action, Lieu
tenant Cushing of the Barney reported
that his boat and crew were in good fighting
trim, and they were determined to beat the
enemy or sink at their post. The loss, on
the two boats, was five killed and eighteen
woundediwhich is probably more than one
tenlhofthc whole number of men onboard
the vessels, and three or four times os many
as were lost on our irou-cUd fleet at the time
of their retreat from Fort Sumter.
REBEL HOPES AND SCHE3TES.
LctterfroiuGoV' BArrls, of Tennessee.
To the Editorthe inacA&tfc;* ( Ter.n.) BuU-tin !
• Tcllaeoxa, Team, April 8,1883.
My attention has been called to the follow
ing paragraph in your Issue of the Sist ult:
It has been settled that there will be no election
for Governor in Tennessee, la Annnes next, if the
Federal army continue to hold the Middleaad West
sections of that State. By virtue of the constitu
tion Gov. Harris holds Ms office until his auccca
sorgis elected.
A similar paragraph appeared in the Mem
phis Appeal of the 27th nit.
Allow me to suggest that it Is settled by the
Constitution of Tennessee that there shall be
an election for Governor, Senators and Repre
sentatives, on the first Thursday in August,
and there is no power in or out of the State
which can change or annul this constitutional
requirement.
The election should by all means, and cer
tainly will be held at the time fixed by the
Constitution. Wc should therefore, at the
proper time, take all necessary preparatory
steps. •
Forgetting all the differences of opinion up
on minor questions of the past, wo should
select a good and true man for each position, ’
In whose support all true patriots can cordi
ally unite.
If we will present one and but one such
candidate In each elective district throughout
the State, Federal bayonets cannot prevent
the election of sound Southern rights men to
the positions of Governor, representatives in
Congress and the General Assembly. .
The people of that portion of Tennessee
'l*'
within the enemy’s lines present the proudest
spectacle of heroic firmness in their patriotic
devotion to our cause. We may confidently
rely upon their cordial co-operation so far as
th«*v maybe permitted to vote or take part
in the election.
Batlongtjefore August, the rivets -win hive
fallen to low water mark, giving us an open
field in which to meet the enemy. I feel that
I hazard veir little In expressing the confi
dent belief, that, before election dav, we w'ill
have crushed or driven from our 'State the
miserable mercenaries and vandals who have
so long plundered and oppressed a brave,
true [and patriotic people, leaving every
portion of the State free and untrammelled in
the exercise of the elective franchise.
Very respectfully,
Isuam 6. Harris,

An Important Federal Success.
Queen of tlic West Becaptured.
New Tons, April 23.—The JTm,ld's letter
from New Orleans, April 14th, says:
“The news to-day from Brashear City ig of
the utmost importance. The enemy evacuated
Lis works at Centrevillo Inst night, but will
probably be captured entire, as he is enclosed
between Grover’s forces, on the one side, and
those of Emory and Weitzcl on the other,
lie is leaving his guns and ammunition behind
him.
“ The steamer Diana, lately taken from us,
will certainly be recaptured, as the United
Stales steamer Clinton has removed the
obstructions in the river, and is rapidly ap
proaching her. 1
“The ram Queen of the West was recap
tured from the enemy in Grand Lake, at ten
o clock this morning. Capt. Fuller, the com

There is considerable activity in the Con

New York, April 23.—A Washington spe
cial to the Evening JW rays:
Fresh rumors are floating, every day, about
Charleston and Admiral Dupont, The truth
seems to be as follows; The brief attack on
Foit Sumter was a heavy reconnoissancc,
which might easily have become a grand at
tack upouihc defences. This recoanoissanco
revealed to Dupont his strength and weakness,
so that he will be prepared for the work iu
hand, should he renew the attack.
The statements that the President is very
angry with the Admiral; that he is to be re
moved in disgrace, and that the President
peremptorily ordered a second attack, are all
groundless. There is to be a second attack.
Dupont will probably lead it No unpleasant
dispatches have been sent to him. lie will,
h<fivever, xmikc the attack only when, in his
own judgment, he tliinks fit.

LEAGUE FOR THE UNION.
MOBSTER MASS MEETING IN
NEW YORE.
Fifty Thousand People Shouting
for the Union.
[From the New York Times, 21st.]
The largest popular gathering ever held in
this city met yesterday afternoon at and
around Madison square, in response to the
call of the Loyal League of Union citizens, is
sued by its President, Lieut. Gen. Winfield
Scott, U. S. A.
The day was rather unpropilious. Dark
rain clouds hnng over the city, and clouds of
dnst whistled windily tjirough the streets;
bat denser than the former, and more enthu
siastically restless than the latter, were the
♦'clouds of witnesses” which by scores of
’hoasands swarmed in front of the Fifth
Avenue Hotel to shout Amen to every patriotic
sentiment, and cheer with hearty voici each
testimony of fealty to the land oi the free and
the home of the brave. •
Four stands were* erected, from-which, as
will he seen in the following report, distin
guished gentlemen addreseed the vast crowd,
which excelled in numbers as it did in enthu
siasm any ten political meetings held in this
city during thelasttcn years. The presence of
Gch. Scott, doubtless, drew many to the
square who, on ordinary occasions, avoid
crowds and prefer to read rather than listen
to speeches, and that their hearts were
cheered by the sight of the aged soldier, -and
that they were amply repaid tor their trouble,
and duly imbued with the spirit of the occa
sion, was most clearly and unmistakably
evinced by the continued chulition of enthu
siastic chceriogs, shoutings and hnrrahings
which rang forth again and again, an<H again!
Addresses were made by 6eorge Bancroft,
John \ an Bnren, Henry J. Raymond, Daniel
S. Dickinson, Lyman Tremain. D. D. Field
E, Delafidd Smith, Ethan Allen, Henry B.’
Stanton, G. W. Curtis, Rev. Dr. Hitchcock!
D. T. Coddington, Mayor Opdykc, and others.
Owing to the feeble health of Gen. Scott,
who kindly consented to preside over the
meeting, or, as he expressed it, “to help the
boys take one more battery,” it was arranged
that he should occupy a ohk\r ©a the balcony
of the Fifth Avenue Hotel, directly opposite
Stand No. L The balcony was appropriately
decked for the occasion with the American
colors, and from the balustrade was suspended
a large banner, with the following inscrip
tion;
“The fire of the flint.”
Oun CoCUTBT.
Its unity and integrity will be maintained against
all foes, domestic or foreign.
At precisely 4 o’clock, Gen. Scott left his
parlor in the hotel, and accompanied by His
Honor Mayor Opdyke, David Dudley Field,
Esq., James Wadsworth, Gen. P. M. Wet
more, and Dr. Campbell, of the armv, (phy
sician to the General,) proceeded to the bal
cony. No sooner had ho stepped from the
window upon the balcony, than he was recog
nized by the immense throng congregated m
front of the hotel, every man of whom ap
peared to vie with the other in his efforts
to give the hero of a hundred battles a
greeting worthy of bis fame, hi* char
acter, and his life-long services. The
cheering and waving of hats from the crowd
in thQ fcUQets continued for several minutes,
while front the windows of the hotel, each
one of winch was set with a cluster of femi-
P nine beauties, waved innumerable strips of
cambric. The General was evidently much
afficu d by the warmth and cordiality of the
greeting extended to him, and returned the
salutations of tbc people with repeated sol
dierly bows. Being too weak to address so
vast an assemblage, ne spoke a few words to
Mr. James Wadsworth, Chairman of the Com
mittee of Arrangements, who stood by his
side, and after tile cheering had subsided, Mr.
Wadsworth spoke as follows:
Ffllow Citizens op New Tore; I am de
sired by Gen. Scott to express to you his
thanks for your presence on this occasion.
Whcrtveran enemy of his country is robe
found there he is ever present, and he is here
to-day to “help take one battery more.” [Ap
plaure.] As long as his life shall be spared
he will always be found ready to serve the
cause of his country; and it is the earnest
wish cf every American heart that the inspi
ration of his noblo presence, his wise coun
sel, and his patriotic example, may be pre
served tohisconntrymcnuntil the Union and
the Constitution shall he restored throughout
the length and breadth of the land. [Pro
longed applause.]
The General then seated himself in a chair
at the front of the balcony.
We condcrsefrom the full reports a few
GEMS FROM JOHN TAN' BUREN.
Fellow-citizens, allow me to say a few
words to you about the mode of putting
down this rebellion. I do not believe that
simply belonging to the Democratic parly
will end the war that has been going on these
two tears. Since I belonged to'the party
Jeff Davis claimed to be a member, so dots
Mason and Slidell. Ido nor see that that
ends the war. [Applause,] Wind would be
thought of the pass* ngers of a skip, who in a
dreadful gale found that the vessel had sprung
aleak, and who should say to
“find out where the leak is; stop i:
at all hazards; if our masts are all
carried away rig ‘ a jury-mast; if
you cant save the ship save the passengers;
construct a raft; be sure and save our fives,
aud a 5 for the rest we will sit here and grum
ble; we belong to the Democratic party.”
[Laughter] If that ship had to be lightened
to be saved it is easy to see what part of the
cargo ought to be thrown overboard. [Ap
plame and laughter] Now we are told that
the Democrats who arc in these leagues are
dupes. [Laughter.] Mr. Forney has said
that this ig a device for President making,
and that the Presidential canvass has com
menced, and we must be careful.
Well, it would not be at all remarka
ble if I should be duped. L[ pre
tend no peculiar acuteness, nor Is it at all
material what I may happen to do. Bur,
here’s my friend, Mr. Brady, at the summit
of his profession, and distinguished ia a branch
of it that peculiarly requires in it a knowledge
of the motives of men, or the wavs of the
world. I doubt whether he can be very much
imposed upon; [laughter;] and how exceed
ingly kind it is in this Albany editor to cau
tion Gen. Scott that he shall not be dnpei.
[CheersforGen. Scott.] If, whenhehadbecu
engaged in the Western war, this editor had
toldhim “lookoutforßlackHtwk,” or, when
In the Northeast crisis,to look ot for Sir John
Harvey, or when engaged in the delicate task
cf treating with these same men in the days
of Nullification, to look out for John C. Cal
houn; or, in the Mexican War, to caution
him against Santa Anna, what a merer it
would have been to have had such advice I
[Laughter.] I think the General will be able
to protect himself against imposition in the
present condition of the country, in the lea-mo
of which he is the honored President. [Ap
plause.]
It was predicted that the grass would grow
in the streets of Now York when the Sjutlicm
trade ceased. [Laughter.] We were a*-nrod
that all that kept us alive was the Southern
trade. I don’t think the grass in our streets
would pay any rebel for mowing. [Laughter.]
I think no man could go to our to oar
park® to our public places of amusement, to
our places of worship, or to the festivals in
the city, aud suppose for a moment that we
were engaged in a war. And do you suppose
that a people prosperous ns tho gentleman
who spoke before me has described—powerful
as we are, as comfortable and happy, can be
overthrown, in war [“never!”] when wo are
to meet those who are suffering ns the South
ern people are ? [Applause.] Why, a little
while ago, I read in a Richmond paper some
very contumelious suggestions in anticipation
of the arrival of Commissioners from Illinois,
to treat for peace. [Laughter.] They said
they would treat them civilly, holding their
noses a .little. [Laughter.] Now, if the ac
counts that I get of the disease, and the deso
lation and tho filth of Richmond are at all to
be relied upon, thev have better reason for
holding their noses, than their sitting up for
comp-auy from the Northwest. [Laughter.]
There will be men there before a great while
that will save them this trouble, and hold
their nosea a good deal, and their throats, too.
[Laughter and applause.]
Now what will bo the end of this war in re
gard to one of the Institutions which has been
a subject of much discussion J* I allude to
slavery. There have been great and delicate
controversies upon this subject heretofore.
Wc have come now to a time when by the
progress of our arras, slavery is overthrown.
[Applause and “good, good.”] By well rec-.
oguized principles of law, it is as clear as tho
Runnt noon, that if this war gets on twelve
mouths there will not be a skive legally held
in any one of the States and Territories, ex
cept by tho President’s proclamation. [Ap
plause.] That is the necessary effect of the
conquest of those States, and brought upon
themselves by the war that they commenced.
[“That’s so.”] And if this wonderful
result should be achieved, if the time should
come when this great calamity to the United
States, and affront to the civilization of the
age is wiped out In this way; if these poor
Abolitionists, who never constituted a hun
dredth part of our population, whose pale fa
ces and unsteady eye, produces almost tho
feeling of compassion thit is engendered in a
sound mind by meeting one who is wander
ing in his intellect—if they come to ms and
say, “Now this institution is abolished, I
want you to unite with me in erecting a mon
ument to William L. Yancey, and Jobs Sei
dell, and James Mason, and Jefferson Da
vis, who abolished Slavery,” I shant refuse —
[laughter and applause]—l moan involuntary
slavery. II our Southern friends arc right in
supposing that the slaves will stnv with them
from attachment, aflcr they a'rc free, of
course they won’t be prevented from doimrso.
