ident wruttt us follows :
"My pniamoiint object is to save tbo
Union, nnd not cither favo or deslroy tda
very. If I could s.ivu thu Union without
fieeing any rdavr, I would do it ; if I
could save it by freeing soma and leaving
"iheia alone, 1 would also do that. What
I do about slavery and tbo colored race, I
do becanno I bi'licvo it helps to save iho

believe doing more will help the causo."

Early in the autumn of 180:3, in his col
cbratetl letter addressed to the Springfield
Republican Convention the President wro'tc
ns lollows, as if to excludo thu cavil ot
objection on tho part ofpohtie.il opponents
that ho had any design tocoiitinui; the war
for thu purpose of emancipation alior the
declared object of thu war should have
been reached in a r i oration tf the Uuion.
To this olio rt the l'residoiitsaid :
''ou say you will not fight to fieo ne
grocji. Some of them seem willing to fight
for you. Rut uo matter ; fight you then
vxehi-nvely to save tho Union. I isuod
tho proclamation on purpose to aid you in
saving the Union. Whenever you shall
have coiiiurcd all resistance lo the Union,
if 1 shall urge you to continue lighting, it
will be an apt time then for you to deelaro
you uill not fight lo freo ucgroos,
We have arranged these declarations of
the President in the order of iheir chronol
ogy, for tho purpoie of showing that his do
clared policy under this head has been uni
form, deliberato, definite, and determinate.
In tho month of July, 1801, he declar
ed it hi; purpose to preserve the govern
ment that it might bo admiiiisterotl as it
was administered by the men who made
it, and he added "loyal cilizcu everywhere
have the light to claim this of their ;;ov
eminent, and the governmdut has no ri.'ht
to withhold it.''
In December, 1800, be said that if "the
people of thu Southern States would cea-c
n'siitunco and would rcinaugurato, sub
mit to, and maintain the national author
ity within the limits of said stales, und.ii
thu Constitution of die United States, in
cuoh case tho war would couko on the part
of Iho United States."
In September, lSG.'J, directing his rn.
marks to supposed dissentients from hi.
negro policy, hu said : -'Fight you then
exclusively for tho Union.'' "Whenever
on shall have conquered all resistance lo
the Uuion, if I shall urgo you to continue
fighting, it will lu an apt lime for you to
declare you will not fight for iho nero.''
It ii iu the light of these presidential
djclarations dint tho reader is prepared
properly to appreciate the inlcet lerms on
which tbo war will cease, as far as the
President is concerned, and whhout which
purposes to 'continue lighting." Wo al
lude, of coureo, to tho stipulations announ
ced by him a few days ago as the necessa
ry conditions preliminary to negotiations
with tho Confederate authorities, as fol

This declaration is important in many
aspects. It shows, in the first place, that,
according lo the principles propounded by
tho President iu tho year lt?Gl, tho time

ed as it was administered by tho men who
made it :" for nobody protends that tho
"men who made the government" suppos
ed that tho President had any pow to dic
tate emancipation us the condition of main
taining or restoring peaceful relations be
tween the states and the government.
As compared with tho terms of peaeo
piopounded to Mr. Wood in tho year ISOii,
I:, i .i , ,i . , ,. .... 1
iu cllect announces that no proposition
"will bo received and considered by tho
executive governmont of tho United States"
which docs not embrace, in addition to
"tho restoration ol peace and tho integri-
of wI,ol Union," tho ''abaudonniont of,
slavery."
As compared with tho declaration of
18(13, it shows that the timo has now come
when, ic.cordiugto the President's own ad-

mimion and consent, .wh of his country-
inoti as !tru "lighting exclusively for iho
Union' and who con.cientiouslv deny the
right of tho government to Gg"bt for any
thing else, tiny aptly say thai the new
terms on which thu President insists are
ucl. that if thQ negotiations were broken
down by his persistence on this point.lhev
, night fairly claim, according to his own
theory of their doty, an exemption from
tri,.i,.i r.
Hamuli: iu uce uiirroes.
It will thus bo seen that, by applying to
the lalo declaration of thu President, the
principles announced by him in the yearn
1601, 180'4,and 18011, wo ore able to
measure the (fleet nnd purport of that
declaration by Ins own standard?. And
when tho President thus becomes bis own I
critio and coufutcr, it would be idle in us 1
to add any words on the subject. ;
lut this latest declaration is important1
in other aspect". It servos to show that !
the Ptcfident has ovoreouio any scruples '
ho may have previously had on die ub-
tes of recognizing the confederate milita-'
ry authoiities. He now makes it a condi-
we.iuiu-wmi.gauu uunsiuormg any prop-
osition that it ihall conic '.'and with an !
authority that can control tho armies now j
at war against the United States." On .

Rut Mr. Lincoln must have been aware
that tho President of the fco-ealled Con
federate States ('who i.j tho ''authority''
that controls "the armies now at war
against the United Slates") is notempnw- !
eretl by any ol his prerogatives to aipu
late for "the abandonment of slavery," '
and, therefore, in specifying this as one of
lip- tei ni ' of a proiiositioi: lo come "bv!
an.I with such an "authority," he asked . tidllSi nnJ b ai, trll0 iu j,Sc,fj tllat itouglt tution, cxpouuded hy tho first Congress,

Stales, ns of tho United States, cxolu-ively ' fortitude and patience of our people, that Mr. Linooln can not amend the Consti-

i'ho Tiiius, with croditablo clearness of'

position on the poaco question, as recently
expressed by himself, is incompatible with
tho old doctrine of state rights. TLU ad-

words : but it is ao lullv implied in nn

it does not hesitate to fay that ''a major-

This is a distinct rcpudi dion, by Mr.
Lincoln's nioit respectable organ, of n
willingness to seo the Union restored on
tho basis ol die old doctrine of state rights.
The position taken by Mr. Lincoln that

0t include the complete abandonment ol
slavery, is substantially id- utical with tho
position of his orau that no peace should
bo made which recognized tho old dootriuo
of stato rights. The Tinifs makes a
clumsy and dishoacst attempt to distort
tho meaning of tho phrase, quoting a3 if
fiom Tin: Would tho language of cortaiu
alleged, and, us il turns out, fictitious,
rebel propositions which wc hail copied
from its own columns, and giving to tho
phrasO rtato rights a seuso which il know

that the Times finds it less easy to arguo
ngaiust our actual position than against its
own misstatement of it Wo oorlainly did
indorse the "old doetrino of state rights,"
and, although the phrase was not our
own, wo havo uo desiro to amend it. It
is pertinent to thu peace question in its
present aspect only so far as it bears on
Mr. Lincoln'!) declaration that ho will
oiitertaiu no proposals for poaoo except on
an abolition basis ; or, in other words,
that ho will ooutinuo tho war for tho mere
abolition of slavery A war for that pur

thoBo resolutions, with all their groat

VOLUME 28
The Draft.
It is staled upon good authority that tho
Adjutant General of Pennsylvania said, in
tlioprosonco of several pcrsohs, in a pub
lie house in Ilarriabnrg, that the lastdrnft
in Pennsylvania has been made. Wl.ctli
er it was said knowingly, iu viow ofeorao
negotiations of peace, or in a spirit indi
cating forcible opposition to the draft, wo
cannot say.

Recorder publishes a now song, of whiok
the following is a spccinicu verso :J
"John Brown was John tho Haptis'l, of tho
Christ wo aro to sec
Christ, who of tho bondsmen shall the Lib-
crotor bo,
And soon through all the South tLojslavcr
shall all be free,
For his soul is inarching on."
This is a fair samplo of tlio blasphemy
and stupidity which aro ventilated in a
majority of our churches. If tho Aboli
tionists have failed in their offorts to con
quer the South and suppress tho rebellion,
they have been entirely successful in thoir
raids upon Christianity havinc drivon it
almost entirely from nil the pulpits in tho
country.

Wo understand that people who visit
tho Stato of Kontucky aro scarohad at eaoh
lauding placo by Lincoln officials, to sco
if thoy have in thoir pookots aDomocratio
newspaper. If they have, it is taken from'
them and buruod. This is the liberty we
oDjoy under Lincoln's administration. This
is the "frcett, best CJovcrnmcnt on earth"
that wo havo heard so much about. Thrac
proceedings aro not condemned by tho
Lincoln press. Comment is needless.

It is estimated that tho llichmond cam'--paign,

That money and thoso tuon are much
worse that) tin own away, for if wo get

ration of the war. How sad to think of
tho loss of so much valuable lifo and ol tho
misery it has brought upon the land.
How much good could havo boon done
withthis money, thus lavishly expended
in an insano enterprise.
"Hud Douglas lived," exclaim a Lin

ho stood at the timo of his death." At
tho timo of his death ho said that when tho
war should become a war for emancipation,
he would fly to the aoiislauco of tho South,
