The Statement of Junius Reviewed
The Statement of Junius Reviewed---An Answer to His Inquiries,
In a late number of the Torch-Light, Its
readers are presented with hat was intended
to be a very instructive article, from the pea of
a gifted historian, critic, politician and catecbUt,
tyled Junius. The writer's historical record of
County Conventions; for aught we know to the
contrary, is eatiiely authentic well adapted to
the use of posterity and we do not venture
upon a correction. It is, moreover, foreign to
our purpose to notice the criticisms made upon
the action or address of the Central Committee,
for fear we might "travel out of the record or
be found guilty of meddling with other people's
After reading the writer'B history and criti
c'sms, and arriving away down at the point
- where he return from lis digrest&n, w find
some things, which, for the sake of setting mat
ters right before the public mind, demand a
biief reply. .. L f. .- .. L . t, ; '
And, first, Worcester's definition of "a dele
gate," as quoted by Junius, is admitted to be
entirely correct; and we can see-no point in the
superfluous quotation, unle3 it be, as is after
ward insinuated, that the thirty-two delegates
in the late County Convention misrepresented
their censtitutents. On the charge of misrepre
sentation in this case, we have to say, that no
complaint agaiast miirepresentation, or indeed
any other conventional act of these thirty-two
delegates, ha3 ever been uttered by their con
stituents and who else lute 's rijjht to com
plain T Entire unanimity prevails in favor of
the nominations in most of the Townships rep
resented by the majority delegates who made
them, except, perhaps, in a few instances, where
the minds of men have been abused and biased
by the interference and cunning devices of out
siders. If these Tovaiihips were dissatisfied
with the course pursued by their delegates why
have they not called Township meetings, or in
eame other way expressed their dissatisfaction f
We submit, whether or not, Bath Township, for
instance. Las any thing to uo with the represen
tation Or misrepresentation of Cedarrilie Town
ship has not CeJarvilie the right to settle the
question herself ?
The frivolous objection, that men were nomi
nated for office, who were not announced, is
again urged by Junius. With a few passing re
marks, we are willing to give our opponents all
the advantage they can gain by this objection;
and as it is the:r idol, let them devoutly worship
at its shrine. Did it ever enter anybody's brain
but that of a scheming politician, that the an
nouncement of a man's name in print, or some
other public way, gave him any new qualifica
tions merits," or claims ? According to the posi
tion taken, a convention must have the names
of candidates printed or heralded, before any
choice can be made; and that, in its delibera
tions, it must be confuted to a choice of some
of a number of aspirants to the utter neglect of
every modest, worthy and capable man in the
community. Do men, who hold this view pre
sume, that the people are too ignorant to make
their own selections ? How do the intelligent
farmers, mechanics, and laborers of the coun
ty, like this kind of imputation ? In building
their houses and carrying on their industrial
operations, they do not feel bound to hire every
applicant for work, or some out of a number of
applicants, but exercises the privilege of looking
around, to find those that suit them best; and
we are much mistaken if they do not wish to do
the same thing when they come to employ a
public servant. What, if Orr, Galloway, Baugh
man and McMillan wer not "announced must
they never hold an oii.ee or be noticed in that
connection, until they pay a printer's fee, or sa
crifice their own manhood, and disgust all hon
est people by crouching, fawning, and begging
six months beforehand, for the suffrages of the
dear people ? Ia regard to the two latter gen
tlemen, it may be remarked here, that the Con
vention nominated them, although their names
wer not announced; and that there is just as
much ground for complaint against their nomi
nations, on this score, as against the nomina
tions of Orr and Galloway. Politicians may as
ume to dictate to the people how they should
act, but we hope the day will never com in the
history of our country, when tb democratic
principle will be narrowed down la the manner
proposed; but that the people, in despite of the
machinations of those who would wish to rule
them, will preserve intact, untrammeled and
secure, thiir right to selection and election. Be
tween selection and mere cdmasion, there is a
world-wide difference the former ''mplies the
free and full right of suffrage the latter shack
les and confuits it. , .
As to the charge of fraud in the Convention,
coxsTS.ccfW or otherwise, or any other charges
that have been made against the thirty-two del
egates who made the nominations, it is enough
to say that these charges have all been publicly
denied over the signatures of the delegates
themselves that the?e delegates are all men of
unimpeachable character all well known and
xtliabie and the pecpie are now left, either to
take Otcir statement and explanations, or those
of interested candidates and their mart than in
Nobody denies the right of a minority to pe
tition; and in the case to which Junius alludes,
neither the friends of the nominated ticket, nor
the Central Committee, ever called such right
in question. The Committee simply de
cided adversely to the prayer of the petitioners.
That is all, Mr. Junius.
It is amusing to see how adroitly Junius es
capes the specifications asked for, and turns,
like a baffled attorney in a bad case, to asking
questions which have already been answered,
or which are irrelevant and nonsensical. We
rtiterate, gentlema, m&k your charges pt
cic; and until you have done so, and .ubstanti-
ate them, you have maue oo p-oiiU in law or lo-1

fripn.U wp aratuilousln addi-sKs ourselves ta the I
performance of the old-fasiioued duty of say
ing our catechism." , i
As to the first and second questions propouad
ed by Juniu3, "lit.' How many, and which of
you were pledged either to y our constituent?, or
to the candidates themselves, to support Messrs.
McWhirk, Dewey, and McClure, or either of j
them? d. How canT, and which of yon, if i
not nledeed. hid expressed vour nrefereuces fori
these gentlemen, or either of them," we have!
ou'y to say, that our constituent and Messrs.
McWTurk, Dewev, and McClure are the proper I
persons to answer them; because if pledges!
were made, or preferences expressed to any of
these parties, they are best acquainted with the
Our answer to the third question, "Was
there a meeting of delegates held at the Ewing
House in Senia, on the morning of the 15th of
June, the day of the Convention and If so,
what delegates were at that meeting?" shall
be given as frankly and as explicitly as we know
how. There va a meeting at the Ewing House
at the time referred to, composed of as many
delegates as chose to attend it a caucus if you
like. Did an old politician like Junius, wh has
been at the State House, and mingled largely in
political circles never hear of a caucus? Tea,
the majority delegates had their preliminary
meeting, and like seusible men, agreed upon
their candidates. "Whether the minority dsle
gates had a caucus or not, we are not curious to
know; one thing we do know, they did their
voting and hissing as much "in solido" as any
body else. ' . .
Question fourth, "Upon whose invitation,
and for what purpose was that meeting held,"
is easily answered. As to an invitation to meet
at the Ewing House, if, indeed, an such thing
happened, we can see nothing' hiueous in the
idea. The meeting, moreover, can easily, be
accounted for, without any express invitation
frpm any person. It may be regarded as haV-
j icg been spontaneou8,.arisicg from the neces3t
tv of the case, u the delegates wer uniastruct-
ed, and must needs confer as to their choice of
candidates, to save time and prevent confusion
in open Convention.
Question fifth, " Wure there person present
at that meeting who were not delegates? and
ff so, who were they? at whose Instance were
"they present? and what part did they, or any of
them take in the proceedings?" il tully ans
wered, would be a very unhappy one for the in
quisitive interogators. . At present, and if asked
no further questions on the subject, we have on
ly to say, there were persons present at the
meeting who were not delegates; one, at least",
at the instance of a defeated candidate. ; The
part he took, was to make an eloquent appeal in
favor of said candidate, nd to use arguments,
which, to spare feelings, we refrain from repeat
ing. Question sixth, "Were other delegates ex
cluded from, and refused admission to the meet
ing? and jf so, for what reason?" The meet
ing was open to all the delegates, and uo dele
gate was excluded from, or refused admission
to that meeting, and the thirty-two who nomi
nated the candidates in convention, were not the
only delegates present.
Ttli "What was aereed upon and done at
that meeting?" is now fairly before the pub
lic. See the Union ticket.
8th, "How many, and which of you would
have voted, or have said you would have voted
in convention for McWhirk, Dewey, and
McCiure: or cither of them, if the convention
had not determined to vote by townships?" 2Tot
being adepts at answering riddles, we confess
ourselves puzzled to answer the eighth conglom
eration of interrogations. We hang our heads,
draw a long sigh, like patience-worn children,'1
who have about fagged through their tedious
Sunday evening catechetical exercise, and mut
ter "we want to quit.". What we would have
done upon this, that, or the other contingency;
we have hardly knowledge of ourselves, enough
to sty, and we do cot think the public has any
anxiety to know.
On behalf of tb thirtj-two delegates, &c.
The Delegates of the Into County
Convention, to the Union Voters
of Greene County.
We, the undersigned, being a majority of the
delegates which composed the late County Con
vention, that put in nomination our present
county ticket, having learned to our surprise
that wholesale charges of fraud and corruption,
bargain and sale, tc, have been made against
that Convention, and ar being busily circulat
ed in various parts of the county, in a secret
manner, by the defeated candidates and their
special friends, embrace this opportunity, not
only of denying those charges as wholly untrue,
but we do hereby affirm that they are utterly
false, ungenerous, and without any shadow of
foundation in truth.
' Being unaccustomed to such charges as these,
we feel it du to us that their authors, instead of
going secretly to the people in the out town
ships, and making such representation, come
forward as men ordinarily do, when defrauded,
and make their charges public and specific. '
If we are guilty of fraud, we ask, in what does
it consist ? We make this demand and ft is
reasonable. The columns of our county paoer
are open, and we are ready and waiting to face
you before the people of this county. Besides'
this, we are otherwise Interested. Men who
solemnly submitted their claim to the Conven
tion have bolted 1 and this is not the, first time
with some of them.
yow, the people want to know, am they claim
it as their right to know, whether there was any
good cause for this, or whether it is merely the
.r... r ,nr zvih tvri ,nfin-.i!.looked.
ed bolters. . . , . j
As to the charge, if such it maybe regarded,
that we or any of us were under instructions '
r.r townshiD3. or any of them to vote In I
Convention for the inen who were defeated, we'
simply say that such ts tot the fact.

'' I cannot admire the taste of De Quincey.
Coleridge was a good poet such is the univer
sal favor accorded him by his readers, -nd I
dare not controvert it but Kubla Kahn, the
Ancient Mariner, and that curious and wonder
ful vision, Christabel, seem strongly tinctured
with opium. The ancient Man of the Sea must
have himself indulged, to no ordinary degree,
in the narcotic drug, to have compelled, by his
glitterintr eye, the Wedding Guest to listen to
his singular and impossibly dreadful tale. His is
a nightmare visitation, such as would be likely
io startle an opium-eater ia his slumbers. You
will believe that 1 am entitled to express an
opinion on this question, when 1 tell you that 1
have been foolish enough to indulge in opium
myself, .wot to any extent, However, lor it ap
pears to me that the person who can attain to
the habit of uiinir the baneful poppy-juice, must
have an Inordinately unnatural appetite.
I had been reacunz the. Confessions of De
Qulncev; as well as accounts of the effects of
opium upon the never-silent Coleridge, "and the
a!nm!n A i nftB i tt n anil fifina rVii!A nr)an ie-n
influence, of Chinese Jaw-nee. Suddenly the
fancy prevailed upon me to experiment upon my
self. I went to my friend Silenis, the pharma
ceutist, and stated to him my intentions. Silenis
he ia now 2" said the pharmaceutist, in a start
ling tone of Toice. Of course I could not tell
where he might be at that particular period of
time.' "Suffering intense agonies!" cried my
friend. Poor Bob ! I was sorrv to hear it.
But as that had notliirig to do with" my desire for
opium that I knew of, I. would be glad if he
would wait upon me. "But it has something to
do with that very thing," quoth Silenis; "much
to do, sitt very much, x ou must know that
Bob was seized with a whim to test the effects
of opium upon his system, w nat was the con
sequence ? Why, he imagined himself to be
the Gordian Knot, and believing it essentially
important that he should untie hiuiself.be broke
his thigh bone in the effort, and the fear of his
triends now is that nis lite must pay the penal
ty." Well, well ! Bob was always considered
foolish and fantastical ; but as I believed the
Oordian Knot story to be a shallow fable, in
vented by some ancient scribbler to eke out a
book, it could not be possible, in my wildest
visions, that I should attempt to untie or cut
mvself, under Bob's hallucination
insisted on having the opiuin. Silenis, with a
eigh that sounded ominous, meted it out to me,
and I went homeward rejoicing.
I sought my room. X thought it would -be
good policy to" remove from mv reach every
thins of a destructive character, in case I miirht
conclude nmelf to be a burglar trvbic to rob
one of which hai but three legs a blanket, a
dry-goods box, and mirror of many angles,
together with nry six-shooter which, by the by,
had no cock, and never could be fired off when
it had one and a rusty gun-barrel; the heirloom
of a Revolutionary guardian. t If the latter ar-;
tide was not more dangerous in the hands of
my patriotic relative than in mine, our national
independence was certainly achieved without his
assistance. Gunrjowderand shot, when rammed
iiiio it, asoumed a harmlesfiiess that was truly
encourairinit to the timid mind. - !
; .Having this judioiousl r secured myelf from '
injury iu the event of my becoming violent a
new clsaraeter fac me, imleed I lastened tbei
wirluH s. aud took mv first dose of opium.
. Many hours elapsed before it made an impres-
sion upon me. I had just reached the couciu
sion that bit constitution probablv required a
trreater -ouautitrv of opium than that of other
people, when a blue and yellow htie began to
Hit before mv eves, minified with little, round,
.shining subst&nces, that looked like the brass
buttons our lashionable gentry wear upon their
blue coats. So palpable was the presence of
these thingsthat I reached forth my hand to
take one of them curious as to its composi
tion when they all' faded from my vision fur a
mome.it, and then, gradually reappearing,
seemed to fasten themselves upon a red mon
key jasket that formed itself before my eyes.
Strange to say, the monkey-jacket was filled
out, as if it had a plump figure in it, though I
could see neither head nor limbs enly the
jacket itself stalling gracefully embodied in
space a shape of beauty. Surely, thought I.
tliere should be better than mortal face and
limbs to harmonize with the shape of that shiny
buttoned garment. No sooner thought than
done 1 Coleridge, the face of Christabel was
there the fairy, airy Christabel a pink bonnet,
ornamented with dove-colored ribbons, gracing
ber lovely Lead her eyes blue and bright, as a
star in its own June heaven her cheeks trans
lucent as a mellow-tinctured crystal through
which the May -morn U glowing 1 ' Powers, the
limbs os thy modal of loveliness the Greek
maiden were there, encased in cotton drawers!
Think of that picture, ye artists bonnet, jack
et, and drawers! Yet, notwithstanding this lu
dicrous combination, ail seemed eloquent and
correct. The splendor of the face, the symme
try of the form, . the poetical beauty of every
motion of the limbs, lifted the dress into dignity
and grace, and filled every chink and cranny of
my poor room with gtory and rejoicing. As. il a
cloud, the belfry of a market-house, or a ragged
tree common enough things in themselves
should partially obscure the moon : how she
would pour upon them, and around them, and
infuse into them, the magnificence which is all
her own. An enthusiast ia "Boz" once called
a select crowd to the window to admire the effect
of the departing sua upon a distant chimney-pot.
Simple as the act was, it shows that the bright
lord of day gilds with spendor whatsoe'er he
touches. And so with my opium phantom.
While I was thus reflecting my vision faded,
and I cried :
"Qiory acd lovelireas here paand sway f
Such were the pictures that now rose before
me in rapid succession rich, enrapturing
phantasmagoria! Maidens in' pink, and blue,
and purple, with eves of every description, and
hair black as night or golden as the tresses of
tne mgm-queen. 1 was m the Paradise which
our Oriental friends believe they are to inherit.
The houris were ever round me, feeding me on
aroma, love and music.
But as the days waned, and I pursued my
experiments, the scene began to change. '
I looked in my glass the third or fourth morn
tng, and beheld the reflex of a hollow-eyed,
hollow-cheeked wretch, whose hair stood awry
or clustered in tangled knots upon his brow, and
hose beard looked dismal as if it despised the
countenance it was compelled to grow upon.
I turned away disgusted from the glass, when
a shadow rolled across my path. From the
shadow started phantoms dire of reptile and of
oira. l ney ieapeu anu swung themselves trom
side to side in inextricableout'usion, and mocked

feet. Vhey would not down. What, cried I, in

The head of Silenis he of the pestle and mor
tar seemed to grow upon the wall, in grim and
ghastly shape, distorted ,f feature, and whis
pered triumphantly, "It is!" I made a fierce
clutch at the jibing, grinning head missed it
and fell into a swoon,
. . . What fiend in human shape first claimed
opium as a medicament ? What faithless icono
clast first dared to brui.e and break the majestic
image of God the soul by using it as a crea
tor of unnatural pleasures ? Coleridge, thou
gibbering bard, couldst thou find no better ex
ample to set before thy fellow-men than the
taking to thy imagination the wings of opium ?
If thou hadst sorrows, O, De Quincey I why not
drown them in the flowing bowl rather tha"n call
from the "vasty deep" the demons of opium to
amuse thy morbid fancy 1
The great Confessor and the lover of Gene
vieve reply not. Their silence is eternal. They
have left as a vague answer the terrible inspira
tions of the wondrous gutn'-an inheritance, ter
rible as it is, which we have accepted, however.
as being commingled with a weird beauty. Who
but an opium-eater could have worked up the
ingenious machinery that surprises 'us in Klas-
terheim tne nien-wrougtit visions, in the Man

General Logan's Advice to All.
Quit your quarreling. Be for your govern;
ment in spite of what anybody mav say. - Swear
that you are for your country anyhow, in spite
of what anybody may aay, and prove your faith
by your works, uo tne worst. Assist the sol
dier, help him; don t support and sustain desert
ers. Be glad to meet a soldier because he is a
soldier. Be proud that you have a friend in the
army that is a soldier. If you cannot fight you
can work. You can show by your action fiat
you are for your country. ..When these gentle
men get to talking and- laying, "I am tor the
Union as it was and the Constitution as it is; I
am for the Union, but then I must have it con
stitutional v;" that is to say, they are for setting
down quietly and telling the Government to go
to thunder. They will do nothine to save it. You
just tell them this: "Say, Squire, I am for the
Union ngnt or wrorg. bee u they will gay as
much. He will say,"I am for the Union, but I
must have the Constitution." Then put acother

A Kentucky "Native's" Story.
BY EDMUND KIRKS.
As I was seated, after supper, in the porch of
the hotel, at Louisville enjoying a fragrant Ha
vana, and the cool evening breeze, a lean
elAnrralml "nal!ro,! ,nnmoih,il mo TT Karl a
thin, haggard face, a tawny skin, and a mass of
coarse black hair which tell around his neck:
like hemp around a mop handle. His butternut
clothes were much the worse for wear, and torn
in many places and the legs of hia pantaloons,
which made no effort to reach the coarse bro
gans that encased his feet, disclosed a skin so
scratched and furrowed that it seemed to have
been gone over with a harrow. I had seen
thousands of his cla33, but there was a look of in
tense wiklness in his gray eyes, which moved in
their sockets with the unsteady glare of a wild
beast s that 1 involuntarily started and turned
toward him. Seeing my movement, he said in
a quiet, civil tone:
. "How d've do stranger ? D'ye b'long yere?"
"B'lone ter the annv ?" (I wort a suit of
regimental blue minus the brass buttons.)
"So, sir, I'm a peace man."
. "A peace man Copperhead ? and hi eyes
glared a little more tiercel v than before.
"Xo. sir, not exactly that, but I let others do
"Ye doesl Well, sir, you urns is a cuss ter

"You're right my friend sit down;" and I
motioned him to a seat beside me. He contin
ued standing, evidently disinclined to approach
anv nearer to a man ot peace principles' Un
serving this I added: ,
"You misunderstand me I'm a peace man
but I fight in mv way with a pen."
"Oh. that's hit ! well that'll do, ef you go hit
"And how do you fight ?"
"Arv how. The rebs'il tell ve that,

"But if you go into the army you caa save
some of your pay for her."
"No, I carn't, I'll be shot I feel hit Ise

As he said this he seated himself in the chair
I had offered him, and stared at me with a wilder.
crazier look. 1 saw that some terrible calami
ty had unsettled his intellect; and I said in a

"And you were driven away ?"
'Yes, sir; druv away robbed house'n

killed! killed! killed!" He bent his head
while he spoke, and as he repeated the last
wordu, they seemed well nigh to strangle him.
"It can't be possible !" I exclaimed, "humsn

"But they hain't human beings they're fein's
devils from hell from hell, sir!"
"I know their passions are roused, but I didn't
know they killed xcomen."
"They does, sir. I'll tell you liout it;" and
grasping the arm of my chair, and leanine for
ward with his blazing, unsteady eyes looking
into mine, he told me tne iollowine story:
"Bout a mile from whar I belong, thar lived
a ole man by the name of Begley Squire Beg
ley, we called him, though ne'didn't own no
staves. He was men onter seventy, but a ritrht
peart old gentleman, and Union to the core.
1 wo ot his boys, Sara an John, is in the army
now tn loyal jLaintuctc. Well, bout a lort
night gone, on the mornin" ov the fiftenth ov
April, three men, dressed up in Union close,
comes to the gentleman's house, an telled him
ihey was round raisin' a company for ter put
down the reus tuat was pouring inter the coun
try. The ole man was mighty pleased, an' I
reckon he was unprudent in his talk; for when
they'd drawn him out, they told him they was
raaly secesh soldiers. Then he ordered them to
leave, but they throttled him and dragged hia
off ter the edge of a branch about half a mile
away and thar hung him to the limb of a tree.
A ole niz that was oassin' alone; the road heard
the old Squire's cries, as he begged 'em ter hev
marcy on his gray hairs; and knowing 1 was ter
home, he put for my house and telled me on it.
1 axed him to tote my two mars ter the bush,
for I knowM thar was more on 'em round, and
feared they'd be arter the nags, and then I put
off ter save the ole man. I was too late. He
was dead, and the infernal devils had got nic-li
back to his house, meaning to steal his fillies
and what plunder he had that could be toted.
I followed them, and as soon as I came in dis
tance I drapped one on 'em. Then me an' he
took ahuid trees, an blazed away ter one another
for inore'n a hour. I wing'd one; but I
got a ball yere," showing an ugly wound in his
shoulder. "Arter a while, six more on em rid
up the road an' come' at me. I seed it warnt
no use so I put for the thick timber, and finally,
seein' they couldn't catch me they guv up tlie
chase. I know'd twouldn't do to go in sight of
the house, so I made a long spell round, ahuid a
hill, and put for the bushes whar I thort the
ole darkey'd be with the mars. It had get to
niirh Onter dark, an' I'd frown powerful weuk
on account of the blood I'd lost so I sot down
aud tried to stop it. I had'nt sot thar long afore
I thort I beard a woman screechin' an' looking
round I seed my own wife. She'd just lost her
baby, aad had'nt been out ov bed fir nigh a
month, but she'd come six miles through the
brush arter me. She couldn't speak, but she
brune me over the hill, and showed me mv
house and barn all I had in the world a heap
of blackened ashes ! They'd buru'd 'cm and
druv my sick wife and my ole mother, who'd
been bedrid tor more n two tears, out of
doors !" .
He paused for a moment; and then in a slow.
broken voice added:
"That iih:ht she died. Died thar in the
durk and cold oothiu' under bur but the yarth
nothin' over her but the old gown mv 'ooman
held over her ter keep the rain off her face; and
when I kneeled down thar ou the ground to hear
her last works, I swore, sir, that I'd never rest
till 1 d drunk thar blood the heart s blood ov
every rebel in Kalmuck ! The next dav the
ole darkey b uried her. I couldn't be thar. They
war huntin' me like a wild beast. For inore'n a
week me an' my sick wife lay out in the woods;
but we're yere now, and all I ask ia to sell oty
mars, sn' git my 'ooumn to a safe place, and
then I'll give them what they've guv me."
From various sources I afterward received
confirmation of tlie native's storv; but it needed
none; for in the fierce passion which blazed in
eves, and lit up his haggard face, tbre was
nothing but iaiT. - , I
A Voice from the Army—Col. Noyes

Quite a respectable number was in attend

Union Association, but not as many as we wouid

Noyes, of tlie 39th Ohio, tlie successor to Colo

Extract from a Letter from an
Officer in General Banks' Department.
A gentleman in this city has received a letter
trom an omcer in lieneral Banks Department,
dated Baton Rouge, July 27, in which the fol
lowing paragraph occurs:
Won't tbi. war soon ezdr Tt look so here Tb
people oi ibe Soitb are sick of IV. If tba North
ern irsltors would keep their moutb shut, and be
have ibemsclve, we could soon bave peace nt
their lime will come when the boya get home.
There is no doubt but that the Relief are
now looking to tlieir " Northern brethren"
as their last nope. Was it not for the Butternut
assistance which they have had reason to expect,
thev would have laid down their arms after the
defeat of Lee and the fall of Vicksburg. Thev
had every assurance to believe there were enough
traitors in the North to materially assist them
in tbeirefiorts to destroy the Government. Thev
supposed these Northern sympathisers were, like
themselves, men of courage. Here, however,
is where they made the great and fatal mistake.
The bright sunlight never shone on greater
cowards than these Northern Rebel sympa
thisers. Thev are onlv loud mouthed braggarts,
windy bravados. Thev abominate "villaiuous
saltpeter," and stand in holv horror of shot and I
shell. Thev would render the rebellion every
possible assistance, but they are afraid. They I
will do anything, everything, if they can do it I
secretly. But "if the" 1'ederal expect tlieir I
"Northern friends" to run anv risk of life or !
limb, they are deceived. If gas, and wind, and
bad advice can do them any good, any quantity
of that can be furnished, "but "only" that and
