The resolutions of the Convention,

of placing (n your hands, are a full
and clear statement of the principles
which inspired its action, and which,
as we believe, the great body of Un

prove. Whether those resolutions cx
press the National gratitude to our
soldiers and sailors or the National
scorn of compromise with rebels, and
consequent dishonor or the patriotic
