To Abraham Lincoln, Esq.
, I address you after the manner of Mr
Horace Greeley, and being one of the
Twenty Millions he undertook to repre
eent, I have a word to say.
..- You are called on to emancipate all the
Slaves of the Insurgents now in arms at
the South, and you are told that you have
authority to do this under the War pow
er, as a high military necessity. If this
be so. and I will for the present suppose
that it is so, I submit to you that it would
be eruel to leave them pent up at the
South subject to warfare and destruction
hy their late masters. You must go one
step further and remove the impediments
You must abrogate those clauses in the
Constitution of Indiana and the Consti
tution of 'Illinois which forbid the en
trance of blacks and mulattoes into those
States. And- you must prohibit the State
of Ohio from passing laws which she
threatens to pass, prohibiting the en
trance and settlement of negroes within
terTorders. The same power will cover
it all. If you abrogate the laws of South
ern States you can abrogate the laws of
Northern States, and compel the people
to receive among them 6uch population
as you please ; and as you incline to col
onizing, you will, at the same time, please
order and direct that the Four Millions
ef " freedmen" and freedwomen and free
pickaninnies be distributed, pro rata,
among all the wards, cities, towns and
townships in the United States. Bcmem
her the immortal words of the renowned
Sam Patcb : : Some things oan he done as
well as others ;" an-d when- yon draw
yom mighty sword in the came of high
military necessity, swing it olesn round.
and let noue complain of not feeling the
ennobling touch of the lle-sed accolade.
Yours truly,
Observance of the Constitution.
It has become quite common among a
class of people who would he thought ex
tra zealous in their . love of country, to
taltof ustrttchinj the Constitution,1' and
of "laying aside the Constitution until
the war is over ;" and if any one reminds
them of the Constitution, the ready ans
wer is,'lIiatt7iey!To lalt'oTtlie Consti
tution must have sympathy with Rebel
lion ! Teople who never read a page of
law in their lives, and lawyers so-called,
who never saw a book on the public law
of Nations and cannot even prato of the
names of Grotius, Barbeyrac, and PufTen
dorf, can lay you down the law of War,
and talk of the ' War Power" as coming
in aid of the Constitution. Any favorite
outrage which their f tssions would de
light . to see inflicted on the Insurgent
States, finds its justification in the "war
power." And while they tell you in one
breath, that the Insurgents have no Con
stitutional right to withdraw from us.
they teTTyott in the next, that they have
withdrawn and that we may deny them
alt benefit of the Constitution: that a
failure in loyalty is a renunciation of pro
tection. Wc lave the same ready opposition to
lawless talk against the Constitution that
we have to lawless war against it, and we
are but too likely to have frequent occa
eion to express our dissent from the doc
trines cf those who claim to be released
from Law.
The Night Before the Battle.
When all is ready on the night before
the battle, and the soldier is about to re
new his strength with sleep, he cannot
but turn his thoughts to his wife and
children at home. And if he is admon
ished, as soldiers often are, and as sol
diers believe, the morrow will be the end
of his life here, he will send them his last
message, if occasion permit. In such a
time and in such a feeling, was the follo
wing letter written by an officer of the
Connecticut volunteers (Lt.-Col. Stone,
of the 5th Regiment.) Religion, pure
and undefilcd, does ever command and
ever will command the instant respect of
all men, and for a- moment the bad and
indifferent feel abashed before it. The
good angels sat by the writer ef this let
ter as he wrote, and his family have a
priceless legacy in his jewelled words.
Lt.-Col.Stone fell in the battle of Slaugh
ter Mountain, fought the next day. The
wish he expressed for the education of his
son at West Point may be the means of
achieving the end, even in the face of the
low spirit of office bargaining which marks
all our high' placed men, and' all who ho
ver around them'! which would be sure to ,
make his wish hopeless if he had lived :

Mr Deab Wife I expect that the time
has nearly arrived when we shall have
bloody battle, aa I understand to night that
the enemy are crossing the Rap-dan with
twenty-five or thirty thousand men, and ad
vancing towards us. If so, probably bfore
you receive tlii we shall have fought one of
the severest battles of the war. I have set
down to tell you what to do if I should be
so unlortucate as to fall on the field of battle.
If I am killed, I wish to have Mr. William
Montgomery settle my affairs, pay all my
debts, and with the remainder buy a small
place for you and my children, where you
could live comparatively comfortable with
the pension you would receive from the Gov
ernment. The children are now old enough
to assist you some about the house, and in a
few yevg, if they live, they will be grown
to manhood, when I trust they will not for
get their mother. I hare endeavored", so far,
to rear them to usefulness, and I cf.nnot but
believe they will be a comfort to yon. and an
honor to society, living in" the fear of God ;
if they are guided by His holy law, they n
not go atray.
If I should fall; my body would probably
be sent home ; I shall wish to be laid iu the
cemetery at Danbury, in a lot selected for my

Theodore educated as a soldier at West Point,
if it were possible and fF practicable I wish
it to be so. He is or will be well calculated
for a soldier, having the right temperament
and constitution. Melly is active, and will
succeed anywhere, if rightly directed and
watched over. Seymour, the dear little fel
low, I hope will outgrow bis misfortune, and
if possible should have a good education, that
will fit hirn for any kind of business. If I
judge rightly he will acquire knowledge fast

are so constituted that they will be easier and
better governed by kindness than by harsh
treatment. Every care should be taken m

bleness of character than does that of men ;
women are more dependent than the other
Yotr mm rot think strange that I write

it is quite proper, and but justice to you that

And now, my dear wife, be of good cheer.
If it should please the Lord to take me from
you, He has promised to be the widow s God,
and Father to the fatherless. His promises
are sure 1 And if we meet no more on earth,
I hope to meet in heaver, where there shall
be no more wars or rumors of wars, and the
weary shall be at rest. No man could lose
his life in" a better cause; and although it
would be a great pleasure to me to spend the
remainder of my life in the midst of my fam
ily, and assist in rearing our dear children
and prepare them to fight the battle of life,
still I should detest myself if I could quietly
look on and refrain from lending a helping

this you will always 'enjoy his favor. One
of His commandment is to honor aud obey

you can assist your mother very much. You
are all very dear to me, and it would bo one

Gen. McClellan Restored to Command.
Ws congratulate the nation 1
Gen. McClellan is restored to the sole com
mand, in the field, of the Army of Virginia.
Gen. Hallcck remains, of course, the General-in-Chief,
supervising from Wasliington
the movements of all our armies, and supply
ing to the President and his cabinet the mili
tary experience and skill of which they are
destitute. The army hails the return of their
old and trusted leader with exultant joy.
The nation draws a long breath after its long
suspense, and s assured that however gloomy
our affairs, however desperate the strait into
which the timidity and indecision of our rul
ers and the incompetency of their lately
chosen general have plunged them, the capi
tal is safe; the invading hordes cannot pene
trate our northern soil. There is not a man
among all our millions who does not to-day
breathe freer whom the terrible calamities
of the last month have not taught, have not
convinced, that Gen. McClellan is the safest
general to handle our grand army. He may
not have the genius of Napoleon but he at
leist is head and shoulders above all the pseu
do Napoleons who have imitated his dash and
forgotten his prudence, and never had his
genius. If he handles our armies the capital
is safe. Invasion will be met. The confed
erate armies will be overthrown. Delay in
all this is the penalty which we must pay for
past blunders, but the end is cow felt to be
Secretary Stanton, to whom we are most
indebted for these calamities which have
periled the very life of the nation who first
crippled Gen. McClellan's needful power;
who first sowed distrust in faithful minds;
who broke up the plan which might ere this
have placed the capital of the confederacy in
our power and destroyed its grand army;
who has everywhere obstructed his success
and derided his capacity, Secretary Stanton
who, not content with thus wasting the mill
ions of our treasure and watering all the hills
of Virginia with the fruitless blood of our
bravest and best, has lately been freshly ad
ding to the arts ot an intriguer the bold, au
dacious cruelty of despot, and fills the cells

Bounty and Premium Recruits to be Continued.
WASHINGTON, D. D., Aug. 31, 1862.
To Lt. Col W. X Greer, Columbia, O:
You are hereby authorized by the
Secretary of War to continue the pay

for tho old Volunteer Regiments until
further orders, Tho month's advance
will also be paid such recruits.

Proclamation by the Governor.
To (lie Se veral Commissioners to Superin
tend Drajting :
By virtue of the authority given me
by the Secretary of War, I do hereby
extend the time for the commencement
of the execution of the order heretofore
given to draft militia for the army of the
United States, until the 16th day of this
month, on which day you will in the
manner heretofore directed, commence
the execution of said order. This change
of time is rendered necessary from the
failure to receive the necessary returns
from many of the counties in the State.
In the meantime you will go steadily
forward in the duty of hearing exemp
tions, passing upon claims that may be
presented arid correcting the enroll
ments. David Tod, Governor.
COLUMBUS, O., Sept. 1, 1862.
To the several Military Committees:
Finding it necessary to extend the time
the commencement of drafting the mili
tia until the 16th inst., I made applica
tion to the Secretary of War for permis
sion to extend the recruiting service for
toth the new and old regiments until that
time, and I am happy to be able to an
nounce to you that he has complied with
my request. Recruiting, therefore, for
all the new regiments now organizingand
for the old regiments iu the field, may at
once be resumed and continued until the
15th of September, onthe same terms and
conditions, including pay and bounty, as
For the new regiments there is wanted
about 2,000 men, aud for the old regi
ments about 21.000 men, or in all, about
23,000. Can this force be raised by vol
untary enlistment, and thereby save the
trouble, expense and vexation of resort
ing to drafting in Ohio? It is believed
that it can be. More than twice that
number has been raised within the past
few weeks, and surely the gallant men of
Ohio are not weary in their good work.
The events of the past lew day clearly
demonstrate the necessity of this large
demand upon the patriotism and gallant
ry of the loyal people of Ohio. Neither
wards, townships nor counties should stop
to inquire w hether or not they have fur
nished their quota or share of this na
tion's defenders but all should do all
thev aTC able to do. It may not be amiss,
however, to say in this connection that
the est! mai-e heretofore of 33 per cent,
of the enrolled militia as each district's
proportion is entirely too low. As, from
the returns made, it is that it will require
at least 40 per cent., the returns we have
will furnish the number of volunteers we
have up to this date : and that complete
justice may be done to each separate dis
trict, you are requested to turnisn the
Commissioners of your respective coun
ties with the names of all who may vol
unteer and be mustered in between this
time and the 16th. That he may give
each district due credit therefor, said
Commissioner will be furnished with the
quota due from each district, and will be
instructed to draft only such number as
will make up the deficiency. In commu
nities where there are no recruiting
officers for the regiments, the Military
Committees arc authorized to act as such
by receiving the recruit, furnishing him
subsistence, and giving him a certificate
of transportation to this city, where he
will be sworn in, equipped, and receive
his bounty, advance pay, and transporta
tion to the regiment he may wish to join

An Appeal for Lint.
Adjutant-Genebal's Office,
Washington, Aug. 30, 1862.
To the Loyal Women and Children of the
Cnited Slates: .
The supply of lint in market is near
ly exhausted. The brave men wounded
in defense of their country will soon be
in want of it, and I appeal to you to
come to our aid in supplying us with
this necessary article. There is scarcely
a woman or child who cannot scrape lint,
and there is no way in which their assis
tance can be more usefully given than in
furnishing us the means to dress the
wounds of those who fall in defence of
their rights and their homes.
