Btructiye extracts from a speechrecently deliv-;
ered by Gov. Coxat Columbus Ohio. -Gov.":
Cox acquitted himself wittf Smarted distinc
tion in the late war. He is known as a
moderate Republican. " "We are glad .to find
him standing firmly by the great party that
saved the Union :
" But what shall the terms be ? "Here we
leave the general principle and descend to
practical detail, and here, as was inevitable,
differences of opinion arise. There were able
men among us who regarded the rebellion
and its subjection as a favorable epoch grant
ed by Providence to give us the opportunity
of bringing the Constitution of the General
Government and of all the States to ideal
perfection at one swift bound. There were
others who believed that the changes made
should be the fewest which could possibly
consist with the revolution in the social sys
tem and the domestic institution of the
South made by the war. Between these there
would of course be many shades of opinion,
and discussion and comparison of views ne
cessarily preceded any general concert to any
policy whatever. I shall not stop to inquire
whether the period of debate has been un
necessarily prolonged, for I see no good to
result from such inquiry, and no important
influence it could have upon the discrimi
nation of -our present duty. For the same
reason I shall not discuss the spirit with
which the debate has been conducted, nor
ask whether one or another has indulged in
improper acrimony or blameable license of
speech. I must, however, express a regret
that what appears to be a purely practical
question of detail, should have led into a
discussion, almost entirely the oretic, of the
powers and authorities of different depart
ments of the government over the subject of
restoration or reconstruction. The constitu
tional history of Great Britain is made up
of an interminable series of disputes about
legislative privilege or executive preroga
tive, and no other class of quarrels has pro
ven so bitter and so passionate. The opera
tion of our Government in peaceful times is
so well regulated by our written Constitu
tion that such controversies cannot well
arise. It is only in an anomalous and revo
lutionary time that they become possible,
and for this very reason they ought not to
occur at all. If the terms on which the re
bellion is ended and tlie country restored to
peace are acceptable to the loyal people of
the country, and so acceded as to be binding
upon all concerned, we need not care a cop
per who began, conducted, or ended the pro
cess. No example is to be set that may be dan
gerous in the future, because like circum
stances cannot occur, and it would be non
sense to attempt to provide for them if they
could. Revolutions make no precedents.
When they come, they break through all
rules, and in your modes of dealing with
them it is impossible to reduce them to the
form of any statute, for "in such case" the.-e
is none " made and provided." Let the peo
ple be satisfied that the terms of settlement
are right, and accepted by the South so as
to be binding, and they will make short
work of all debates of the kind I have spo
ken of. They will pass the same iudcmient
upon such wars of words as a celebrated old
English divine passed upon the discussion
of forms of worship, when he inquired what
they were confending for : "For religion ?
no ! for the body of religion ? not so much !
for the garment of the body of religion ? no,
not for so much ; but for the fringes of the
garment of the body of religion !"
Let us then put away all these questions
about " fringes," and come practically to tho
" body" of the subject at least, asking what
terms have been proposed for the settlement
of our controversy with the South, and how
these plans or policies differ. Looking at the
matter in the order of time, we find the Pres
ident of the United States, soon after the
surrender of Lee nnd Johnson, indicating the
terms on which he would favor the restora
tion of the political status of the Southern
people. lie demanded of them, first, abso
lute submission to the authority as the Fed
eral Government ; second, the adoption of
the amendment to the Constitution abolish
ing slavery ; third, the repudiation of tlie
debts incurred by the South in prosecuting
the war against the Government ; fourth,
equal protection by law for the civil and
personal rights of the freedmen. By the
proclamation of amnesty large classes of per
sons whose responsibility for the rebellion
was supposed to be greatest were left under
the penalties of the law, and were not reliev
ed of any of the disabilities they had incur
red. It is a noteworthy fact that the Presi
dent demanded also the acceptance of thse
conditions in the form which was at that
time the strongest that could be precribed ;
namely, by the change of the Federal Con
stitution so far as preliminary steps had then
been taken by Congress for its amendment,
and in the other cases by the change
of the constitutions of the several States
themselves. In short, the doctrine was dis
tinctly and emphatically recognized that "ir
reversible guaranties" should be given for the
observance of the terms imposed. Had the
Thirty-eighth Congress embodied all these
propositions in an amendment to the United
States Constitution as they did that ot the
abolition of slavery, it is impossible to enter
tain a doubt that the President would have
insisted upon that form ratifying aud gua
ranteeing the whole. It is moreover notori
ous, and I believe it is not questioned, that
the administration plan involved the prob
able demand, through the legal forms, of the
equitable adjustment of the representation of
the several States in Congress. These two
other propositions, viz : continuing disabili
ties for leading rebels, and equalization of
representation, properly make part of the
administration programme of restoration,and
may therefore be numbered as the 5th and
oth in the series.
If we turn to the plan and policy adopted
by the Union party of Ohio, in its State Con
vention, we shall find, (to the astonishment
of some perhaps) that these identical terms
are embodied in it and constitute its essence.
It there is any difference whatever it is in
form and not substance. The whole 6 may
be there enumerated in order : 1, submission
to law ;2,abolitionofslavery ; 3, repudiation
of rebel debt ; 4, protection of freedmen ; 5,
disqualification of rebel leaders, and 6, equal
ization of representation. The tally is com
plete ! And not only are they all there, but
they are all that arc there. Will it be ob
jected that these terms are embodied in the
form of an amendment to the Federal Con
stitution ? The answer is plain and conclu
sive that if the Southern States in good faith
are willing to accept such terms as a finality,
they cannot object to placing their accep
tance beyond the reach of their own recall and
where our consent must be had to any fu
ture changes in them. To higgle upon that
question would raise reasonable doubts as to
the good faith of acceptance. They would
have reason to be ofiended if we should assume
that they eould do so. We simple carry out
more perfectly the original idea of the Ad
ministration programme that the guaranties
should: be as far as p6ssible irreversible.
But it may be urged that some of these
terms are varied in form from the President's
propositions. Let us see how far that is a
valid ' objection Take the disqualifying
clause. It cannot be denied that the class
es excepted in the amnesty proclamation are .
incomparably larger than the one described "
in the amendment, if those reached by the
one may be pardoned by the President in de
tail, those included in the other may be re
lieved by vote of 3ongfees, and once let the
country be assured of the sincerity of the
Southern communities , in .their returning to "
loyalty, and I would pledge my life that the
amnesty would be voted, not by a two-thirds
vote merely, dus oyone absolutely unani
mous. For my own part I have looked up-
on the terrible experience of iheWar itself as'
the best possible-safeguard'- against future
rebellions,and asl hoki the protection of the

I remember that Hallam a high authority in

" elemenev is the standing policy of consti

adopted the " bold, vet, as it proved, most

and through three generations the Highland
men had lost no opportunity 'of disturbance.
Their fathers fought under Montrose for the
dethroned family, and the grandsons were out
under the romantic Chevalier, yet as soon as
they had learned the lesson that the (Jovera

man, who was our advocate, referred with
pride to his policy in regard to the clans, ex
claiming "thev were reclaimed by this
means 1" Every American must bow with
more than ordinary respect to that authority.
I know that the same spirit pervades the
Union Partv. and every honest observer
must admit that the most earnest advocates
of universal amnesty have been found
amongst those known as the extreme radi
If we look for a difference of policy be
tween the Administration and the Union
party on the subiect of the basis of represen
tation, we shall fail again to find anything
essential. The suggestion ot the one was that
representation basefl uppon votes would be
equitable, the other has embodied that idea
in a section of the proposed Amendment,
Where then shall we find a collision of
plans? On the proposition that the States
are not dead, and that the right of represen
tation is an inalienable attribute ot their ex
istence, I am told. I deny totally that the
Union party in word or deed has committed
itself in opposition to that doctrine. It is no
secret to any of you that I have advocated
the immediate admission to Congress of loy
al representatives as rapidlv as such should
be duly elected and present themselves, and
I have not been unobservant of the action of
the party in regard to the question. Whilst
I, therefore, in common with you all have
witnessed much debate on this subiect, and
know full well that strong efforts were made
to secure another result, yet the fact remains
clear to all who will sec, that such enorts
failed, that no theories were adopted, but
that the strongest jossiblc practical pledge
was given in the case ot 1 ennessee that the
acceptance of the terms I have been describ
ing would be followed by the immediate ad
mission of Representatives and Senators. If
any one complains that this was not done
sooner, I shall only ask of what use is it to
discuss that point. The vital question to the
Southern States is, how shall this period of
semi-anarchy be quickest ended. I have
promised to adhere to practical questions of
present importance and interest, and cannot
sec how any good can be gotten by stopping
to ask whether more speed could have been
made. It took so long. So much we know
and may regret, but regrets will not change
the fact. The exercise of the right of repre
sentation was interrupted during the war.
the administration ottered to lavor the re
sumption of the right not unconditionally.
but upon the acceptance of certain terms and
conditions which I have endeavored to detail
specifically. Congress, by its final action, he
said, "agreed, provided these same conditions
be put in the shape of an amendment to the
Federal Constitution." 1 here is the whole
controversy in a nutshell. I have already
said all I care to say upon the folly of refu
sing that proviso which lias reference only to
form, when the thing to be done is professed
ly agreed upon. U he quickest, the easiest
way of securing the representation desired is
then for the Southern States to adopt the
amendment, every principle of which they
claim to have submitted to already when
they profess to have accepted the administra
If our distinguished friend who is on the
stand with me (Mr. Sliellabarger) will permit
me to say so, I will confess that the liveliest
surprise that I have felt during the past sea
son was in view of the fact that the Presi
dent did not congratulate Congress and the
country at the close of the -session, upon the
substantial harmony of policy which had
been the result of such long deliberations.
What then shall we say of the organised
efiort which lias recently been made in a
great Convention to produce the conviction
upon the country ,tliat the Union party is com
mitted to revolutionary measures which tend
to the perpetuation of anarchy, and the per
manent denial of the right cf representation ?
What can we say, but that the passions and
antagonisms engendered by warm dispute,
upon other questions, have been transferred
to those upon which the only difference is
verbal, or rather, is only with regard to the
form of the guaranty upon the bond of set
tlement whose other terms are agreed upon ?
If the South should at once adopt the Con
stitutional amendment, how utterly all the
dispute about theories of executive or legis
lative power would sink into insignificance ?
If it is rejected, how plain it is that it will
be done because the terms themselves (which
I have shown are considered' right by the
Administration and Congress alike) are ob- i
jeeted to, and not because the form is that of
amendment to the fundamental law ! In
either event, the controversy about the func
tions of the several departments of the Gov
ernment during a revolutionary insurrection.
will soon lose tueir interest lor the country
and have no more real importance than a de
bate whether all such civil convulsions should
be inaugurated by throwing overboard a ship
cargo of tea.
The loyal people of -the country ask the
irreversible acceptance by the Southern
States of terms of settlement which every
body ever connected with the Union party
has admitted to be moderate and right.
Shall we have it ? This I hold to be the only
live issue of to-day. If all the men who have
sustained the Government by their votes and
their arms through the war, shall now stand
together united in the demand, the thing
will be done and that quickly. A true and
lasting peace long looked for will have come
at last. Restored order and established law
will give to the battle scathed States of the
South that resurrection of credit and confi
dence which is needful to bring prosperity
again amongst them. As nothing degrading
is asked of tliein, honor will be saved, what
ever they have lost, and in the new era of a
progress which shall be in harmony with the
principles of all Christendom, based upon
that system of free labor which the whole
civilized world now recognizes as the only
sure foundation for a State. I verily believe
they will soon learn to thank God that slav
ery was destroyed, even at such awful cost.
Future dangers cannot arise from the frank
acceptance, without reservation, of the settle
ment offered by the Union party. All the
evils which can arise from a continuation of
the present anomalous condition of affairs,
all the dangerous questions of strifes as to
the organization or composition of the for
tieth Congress will be aggravated by every
effort to disorganize or weaken the party in
power. If that party had demanded tyrani
cal or dishonorable conditions of settlement,
we could understand how some'of its mem
bers might draw back from its support ; but
since it asks nothing but what they all have
offered and what fairly carries out the com
mon purpose of which ' I have spoken, I do
not see how any one can be absolved from
the duty of the firmest adherence to its po
licy as declared until the work is thoroughly
accomplished. '"The fear which some have
..tried to- xcite that ulterior purposes could
control the party, ana tnat tne acceptance or
the conditions now asked would not be treats '
ed by us as. a finality ,"is ' unworthy any" man
whose tfeart baa ever been "with ns ; it would
be unworthy even of a candidenemy. -'.' The
loyal people of the North will never repudi
ate their moral pledges or their pecuniary
bonds. . ,The adoption of the Constitutional
amendment will witness the immediate open
ing of the doors of the Capitol to the South
ern delegations, and as the last subject of.
dispute in retcrence to the rights ot states
or of persons shall be thus removed, the last
possibility of renewed disturbance or of rev
olutionary tumult will also have vanished,
and our federal system will resume its pro
gress calmly and smoothly as the heavenly
planets spin through their orbits in space.
The case ot Tennessee, to which I have al
ready referred, is the pledge and proof of the
truth of this assertion.
To the full extent to which it seeks to
divide and weaken the Union Republican
party and to encourage the Southern States
to reject the Constitutional amendment, the
movement lately begun in Philadelphia tends
directly to put off .the final and complete
restoration of order, to preserve for the open
ing of the next Congress all the dangerous
disputes which afford tempting opportuni
ties to ambitious demagogues and reckless
agitators to renew appeals to force and to in
volve the country in anarchy and revolution. I
shrink from contemplating the results which
might follow, and as I have never hesitated
to support any practical measures which
have promised even a tolerably satisfactory
settlement of our disturbances, and have not
stopped to enquire by whom they were
started or whose theories they sustained, I
now feel that I have the right to advise my
fellow citizens of Ohio to remain constant in
their support of this great Union organiza
tion, because it offers the speediest, the surest,
and the best attainable solution of the diffi
cult problem of restoring republican equali
ty of government in a land so long convuls
ed by civil war.' Let the differences which
arose in the period of debts, be forgotten,
now that we have reached the period of ac
tion ; let us fasten our attention upon the
moderation, the simplicity, the iustice of the
plan of settlement actually proposed, and
challenge the history of the world to show
when a triumphant people ever exhibited
equal generosity to the vanquished. Nay,
the challenge has already been answered by
a liberal minded Englishman, the Professor
of History at Oxford, (Prof. Goldwin Smith)
who has publicly declared that we have
shown, "both in the war and after it, a
humanity which may be almost said to form
an epoch in the moral history of our race."
I he satiaiiictiou I leel in the fact that we
have merited such praise, would of itself, re
move any disposition to appeal to your pas
sions against those who recently confronted
us in rebellion. War cries were useful to stir
the blood when troops were to be led to the
charge, but the work we have now to do
calls for judicial wisdom and firmness ming
led, and will consist best with true temper
ance of both thought and speech.
Our opponents tell us that by our conduct
of the war we are unfitted to form a per
manent party in peace : but if we are wise
we shall falsify their prophesies and their
hopes. Wc do not lose the respect of our
old enemies at the South, nor lay any insur
mountable obstacle in the way of their uni
ting with us in the conduct of peaceful affairs
when wc show that we ask nothing but what
may be fairly included under the legitimate
results of the war. To ask less would be a
folly which would make us contemptible in
their eyes as well as in all other peojiles, and
would dimmish rather than increase the
chances of the rapid growth of good under
standing and mutual good will. The time.
trust is not many months distant, when
the problem of restoration being fully solved,
we shall turn our common energies to the
work of developing the resources of the
whole country. To encourage us, we have
the cheering words ot the same intelligent
observer whom I have quoted saying. " For
ultimate reoonciliation when once the actual
wound shall have been healed, and the
lackened relics of the war shall have disap-
eared, the clemency ot the conqueror has
nobly paved the way." Under the guiding
wisdom or that good Providence which has
brought us safely thus far, there is then, as I
firmly believe, good reason to declare that
the Union party will not destroy itself, but
will prove its capacity to rule the destinies-
of the country through long years of peace.
as it has done in these few but momentous-
vears of war."
For the Standard.
To the Union Men of North-Carolina.
The new Constitution has been defeated-
and it now remains to be seen, if the Union
men of this State are going to allow
Worth and those who support him, to run
over them without any show of opposition.
Nothing is impossible, and if the Union:
men all over the state wnl rise up m their
might and present a bold front to the pres
ent dominant party, Worth can be beaten. I
am certain no true Lmon man will support
Worth, and it becomes them to begin to act
aud bring out their candidates for Governor
and the Legislature.
My first choice is the Hon. Geo. W. Logan,
or Kutlierlord, out I am willing to give way
for some one, that the Howard Amendment,
does not exclude from office, provided it is;
adopted, .ind I think it will be. The only
man that L know that is eminently qualified
for the position of Governor, is Gen. Alfred
Dockery, of Richmond County. If the
Howard Amendment is adopted, Worth if
elected, cannot be Governor ; Gen. Dockery
if elected can take his seat, because he is not
under tlie ban.
Such being the case. Gen. Dockery is the
man. He possesses the conhdence ot the
people of this State, he can be elected. It
should be the aim of the Union men of this
State to throw no obstacle in the way of
estoration. If they run Gen. Logan, it will
be said that he was in the rebel Congress ; if
they run Capt. Thos. Settle, it will be said,
he served in the rebel army ; and almost
every man, except Gen. Dockery, has had.
something to do with the rebellion.
Gen. Dockery is for the white basis. He
is for this government being controlled by
white men. and having white men represented,
in the Legislature uliolly.
A word to the Union men of this State r
Do the Union men of this State wish to be
trampled further in the dust because they
have dared to love the old Flag; am
they content to allow Worth and his friends;
to rule them any longer? Are they willing
to have all the offices of honor, trust, and.
profit filled with men, whose greatest merits
are having served "our beloved ConfederJ
acy V Shall it be, that the very men, who
did all they could to destroy the govern
ment, and all connected with it, after their
cause has been defeated, shall now be placed,
in power, and that, too, because they did.
all they could to destroy the government?
No ; a thousand times, no. Let every Union
man, go to work at oneej let meetings be
held, and a candidate for Governor nomina
ted, and that at once. Let not this appeal
be in vain, but let every man be a
" Hero in the strife."
Why not have a Convention here on the;
17th of next month ? That is time enough j
a sufficient number of Counties can be repre
sented, and a candidate nominated.
-Once more ; let this appeal be not disre
garded, and it may be that the next election,
will place the State in the hands of loyaL
Union men.- UNION.

Spirit of the Southern Press.
The Richmond Examiner & paper ' daily
running over with' treason contains the fol
lowing. The Examiner is playing its part.
It wants to get back to the Union in its own
way. This extract would, of itself, prove the
hatred that paper feels towards the govern
ment and the great body of the Northern
people. It is to be regretted that General
Grant was not permitted to suppress the Ex
aminer, as he desired to do, a month or two
" We were not easily to be Avon, but as we
have yielded we shall stick to our bargain,
and on all questions ot loyalty we mean to
out-Herod Herod. Where are we to go if we
do not stand by this Union ? Maximillian's
empire seems to be crumbling into ruins ;
we do not care to go to that scene of anarchy
and contusion. Brazilian emigration is
failure, and, moreover, we do not altogether
like the specimens of fish, lizzards and snakes
which Professor Agassiz sent on from the
head waters of the Amazon. Canada is too
cold for us. We always had a holy horror of
Blue-noses, and we have no desire to be raid
ed upon by the Fenians. It is, therefore,
very clear that we are very loyal and that it
is impossible, or, at least, highly inadmissi
ble, tor us to be otherwise. We have noth
ing to make by " rebelling" again,, even if we
had the arms or the disposition.
It is to be hoped, therefore, that the Rad
ical Pharisees who are continually averting
their pious faces and rolling the .whites of
their eves in a most christian and godly man
ner, will mingle hereafter some sense and pro
bability with their future discussions of
Southern, loyalty. In all texts, whether of
the world,' the flesh or the devil, we think
we can compare tavoraoly with them. Both
in t his world and at the judgment, we incline
to the bcliel that our obligations to all gov
ernments, human and divine, will be found
to. have been discharged equally as well as
theirs, we want it distinctly understood
that, having failed to get away from this
government, we intend now not only to stand
by it ourselves, but to aid in making all oth
ers do the same, whenever we are called upon
to do so. Let the Radicals bear this in mind
when they attempt " rebellion" after they are
beaten at tue rail elections.
The Richmond Enquirer takes its friend
Doolittle to task for saying, in the Philadel
phia Convention, that "the South has been
punished." It says:
" Even such men as Mr. Doolittle perpe
trated the nonsense of saying, as he lately
did in Saratoga, that " the south has been
punished, and in his judgment, sufficiently
punished, to make her feel most keenly the
enormity ot the- crime wuicn she origin
Doolittle- ought to have discernment
enough to know that what he calls punish
ment, we feel to have been an outrage, and
that when he speaks of enormous crime,
there is not a Southern man whose judgment
does not lav the epithet at the door of the
North itself. It is we against whom has been
committed an enormous crime."
A correspondent of the Richmond Whig
demands the release of Mr. Davis, as follows :
In one most important respect the Presi
dent's last "Peace Proclamation" greatly dis
appoints us. The measure of Andrew John
son's magnanimity and instico to the defeat-
ed-,section is yet dwarfed and' its symmetry
impaired by his failure to issue a proclama
tion of amnesty, or of free and full pardon
to. all the- prominent Confederate officials
who participated in the late war for indepen
dence. As long as a pure, tinsel fizh, noble
Christian hero, statesman and soldier like ex-
President Davis is-immured .in. a dreary pris
on, and subjected to the insults of.a coarse
brute like Miles, and left to the tender mer
cies of a judicial ruffian who has declared
that he " could pack a jury which would con
vict Jefferson Davis," the President will not
occupy, in the eyes of Christendom, the ele
vated position which he is entitled to fill.
And it that nohle old Confederate eaqle dies
inthe etutches of the " mousing owl," whose
slow but systematic torture has driven him
to the verge of the grave, history will not as
sign to Andrew Johnson the proud niclie
which we would gladly see him occupy. If
lie wishes to be remembered through all ages
as .one of the wisest as well as one of the most
humane of rulers, he should unlock the prison
gates and restore to liberty the unfortunate ex-
Presulent of the Confederate States. To us
the proclamations of the President Ifcat the
war is at an -.endi that the authority of the
law is now supreme, and that the privilege
of 'the writ of habeas corpus is restored, sound
like hollow and deceptive mockeries, while
Underwood declares that we still have a pris
oner of war immured at Fortress Monroe by
order of the Presulent. How can we believe
that our liberties have been restored and that
we have been restored to all our constitutional-rights,
guaranties and" securities against
illegal arrests and imprisonments,- when all
resort to the privilege ot the writTot habeas
corpus is denied to the " prisoner of war," to
whose Iaily and mghthr torture an .officer ot
the army of the United States has- devoted
all, of. liis time and cruel and wicked energies
since the month of May, 1865."
The Richmond Times refers as follows t?
the Union Convention, to be held in Phila
delphia on .the 3d September :
The Conservative Convention having
proved a splendid success, the Disunionista,
Revolutionists, Negro Suffrage advocates and
demoralized insurrectionists of the Southern
States are preparing for their third of Sep
tember convention in Philadelphia. Richly
as the Hahns, the Hamiltons, and the Mao
kenzics deserve exposure and chastisement,
we could wish them uo more terrible fate
than :to get the whole herd together in a large
hall, separated from the spectators. The de
pravity, meanness, malignancy and insignifi
cance of. this clique of reckless agitators and
incendiaries would then stand revealed to the
whole world. The Devil ha branded some
of these men with such unmistakable evi
dences of .his. proprietorship jv that a single
look-would suffice to reveal their true char
The cunning Radicals, who,, haye had an
opportunity of seeing these creatures when
they, appeared , before the Reconstruction
Committee to slander, villify and. defame
their section, know that it will never do to
exhibit them to the people of the North as a
body of delegates. They are therefore to be
well mixed up with a vast crowd of well
dressed, decent-looking spectators and out
siders, .so that the Southern " disunionists,"
" revolutionists" and " incendiaries" cannot
be suigled out either by the anxious detec
tivesor the honest masses of Northern fanat
ics who will collect to look" at the show. In
this-way these men may, by escaping obser

What a loyal press the City of Richmond
has! I. "V"' , . v
- The Union -Springs (Alabama) timet ex
presses its opinion as- follows about General
Sheridan and other Union Generals : :
"General Phil. Sheridan grew," during the
war, to be quite notorious. His blood is
Irish, and, being an Irishman, he was full 0f
fight. He commanded Irishmen. They
would fight. Hence, in an army of Yankee
blue-bellies, who were most splendidly drill
ed in retrograde tactics, and against a'man
whose taste for peach brandv was stronger
than his sense of duty, this little five-feet
eight of resolute Finneganism made some
reputation. .We rather liked the little fellow
on account of his pluck, and were "hid to see
him promoted, even in an army of craven
and thieves. He studied hard at West Point
he behaved well in Washington Territory!
and it pleased us to see him escape the pa
ternal pick and shovel which had contribi--ted
largely to the internal improvements of
Why, then, has he spoiled all by his fool
ish show of authority ? Why has he proved
to the world that he is only a vulgar ditcher
at heart after all, and that his high rank is
not the reward of merit, but the mere result
of fortuitous circumstances? This i3 really
too bad. We have henceforth to acknowl

into the fire before he would have written in
this style about Union Generals, in 1863.
But treason grows by indulgence. If this.
thing is allowed to go on, the end. must be

Protection, to Union Men.
At a meeting of Union citizens of Guil
ford, Randolph, and Forsythe Counties re
cently held- at Deep River, Guilford, the
following among other resolutions, was
licsolved. That should Congress find' the

Nerus Mendenhalf, and Messrs, -Pugh, Hol

for protection to Vie Union men. What will.
