I SPBKCII CP FERNANDO WOOD.
We clip from the Baltimore Svn of last
week, the following extract, from the
speech of Fernando Wood, n oeutly made
iu (he llouro of ib-presetta tires of the
€.8.:
Mr. Fernando Wood, of New York,
raid that the propoM’ioit under considera
tion sought to accomplish two greet
1 wrongs. Otic to repeal a measure which
j had prevented a Presidential veto of the
, eon fiscal ion bid, and which was auhatan
. ttally a part of that lair, and the other to
ci'iide or violate the constitution itself,
lie gave a history of the proceedings at-
1 1* tiding the passage of the confiscation
bill in 1802. and argu'd that the expla
natory resolution was a part of that bill,
1 mid (hid the President gave his assent to
the two as one measure; and that now.
In repeal the resolution and leave the
bill stand, w*s a gn*M violation of law,
justice and. right. lie then argued against
the constitutionality of confiscation, so
far as the j >int resolution p* riding at
tempted to deprive the heirs of poisons
a tainted of trtMw.n of ihe fee of ihtir re
jal property. The limitations of the cou
• slituiion and of the mode *f procedure
• pointed out for the puni.Jr.uent of crimes
1 were direct and explicit in ihe organic
law.
I Ho raid (hat the Southern States were
, either within or without th • Union.J
| within the Union, th© people of the ro
f 1 voltiig Slates were not deprived of the
. j protection, nor exempt from the operation
iof (he constitution; but if without the
’ 1 Uuh 11, they wire be ilig<T* t.Is —a foreign
' I powi r at war with the United Stabs, and
J were entitled to all the immunities which
the law of nations recognizes, lie alluded
, to the positions assumed Ly Mr. Stevens,
of P<niiMlvaiii.l, taken in hi* spctih de
liver! d iu the House on Friday, ns sus
tains g the latter doctrine. He congratu
lates the country that at la<t the leader ol
the republican party iu this House—the
•nan who represent'd the idminist ration
here ns chancellor of the i xchequcr—had
the courage to thus publicly avow the
doctrine upon which the government ws
now acting. Vi h.le pretending lo be for
the I niuM, iujuui Uic^lmoja*
milling its dissolution, and secretly* pr>-
(Aring for eternal separation and recogni
tion Arsumii g this as the attitude o.‘
the party in power, lie saw no difference
between it and the Confederate govern
ment r J he latter contended tlnA it was
an independent power, at war with uh,
and o did the gcnil'-mau from Pcunsjl
‘ Tania and the adiniuhiiatioo.
. I Mr. Wood then said that aarly in the
. j session he had proposed the appointment
; of commissioners lo treat with the Con
! federate government. Such had always
’ been the practice of this country. We
I bad d<fne s<> with the linrhnry powers,
i itli Engl md i*. 1815, and with Mexico
:in 1848. lint if it be said that this was
. a rebellion and should not he receg
; ni*-d by the appointment of cotumisbioD
j ers, he refeired to the appointment of
commissioners to treat with the traders
jof the bhay rebellion in 17bG; with the
whiskey rebellion in 17W5, when Washing
ton and Ah-xaiidrr Hamilton, (hen Sec
retary of the Treasury, proceeded to Car
j lisle, in IVnnsylvtnis. to treat in |iors-.nj
i with the rohrU; and t. the Mormon re
-1 bcllion, in 1857, when the President np
; pointed Governor Powell, of Kentucky,
.and Colonel McCulloch, of T xas, com-
J uiis.doncrs to ettict a pacification of those
j profligate outcasts. Uohuu l Kuno, ol
i Pennsylvania, was al.-o a party, with Ihe
Executive approbation, to quiet the Mor
-1 mens, and- induce them to acquiesce in
• the authoiity of the oen&titution and laws.
But the administration and party in
j power were opposed to the restoration of
'the Union, and desired a continuance of
i the war, ly winch to accomplish designs
iof puit san advantage. The tu.lir.g ele
ments wire fanaticism and cs.-rruplivn.
! Thu* the war is sustained under the plea
of patriotism. The damnable deeds
were being perpetrated. Tin* tear mu ft
erase. It was commenced wi hout cause,
has hem prosecuted wi'hout glory, amj
will end iu a national impoverishment,
disintegration and ruin. Those who fa
• vored this war favored Jiswnioi.; and peace,
he said, is the only hope of restoration. It
was idle to talk of the |vdinies of the war.
It made no difference what were the poli
cies. The result would be subversion of
republican institutions and utter dcstruc- 1
: lion.
lie was opposed Id the conduct of the
South, but wus tq rally opposed to the
conduct nf the North, under the r< publi
can policy. Both were for dissolution. I
Let us thrrefoie attempt a peaceable solu
liou of the difficulty. Fence must come
sooner or later. Why not procure it be
fore both sections were exhausted and nil
their material interests destroyed? He
rc-f' rmW© what be drsiguat<Nl the barbar
ism of the times, which had bveomc so
! revolting that it uased to shuck. He
J appealed tu the Loited spirit of Christian
t eiv il lation, of progress of common hu
manity, to throw it self into the sreua end
( UVf the Aaruicun people.

Female society smoothes the rough
j nature *f man, it calms his passions, it
! Lad* to morality and religion, and lams
, hi* (hough's to holier and better things.
Why hhoald young men be found so
•often congregating together at v stores,
I caid-tabh-a, clumb-roonjs and
i spending their lives in kidleuess,
j'-sts aud iuuuodvbt conversation—when
l the society of women is su accessible and
!so entertaining VTh y answer—for plea- j
i sure. Can there be any lasting pleasure
derived from the society of the depravtd
and vulgar? No, my young friends, there
, is no real pleasure derived from ,iuh üb-.
jecti*.liable sources. Haw often, when iu
'such society, has that inward monitoi,
I j he conscience, warned you, that vou w* re
iu the path that leads to unhap
piness and sin i And how often, after
leaving such company, have you bt come
| disgusted at the recollection o*. the jest*,
■ and conversations that had passed, and re-;
solved never again to return to those
places iff obscenity -ud immorali.y ? But
| how different is the society of women—
the beautiful, virtuous, modest and chaste.
, U!i. wh it u bhssing tu that misguided
being called man ! What ecstatic plea
sure he derives from their society—no
vaiu regrets—no prickings of conscience—
-Ino alter disgust at the remembrance of j
; their chaste and pleasing conversation.
I Then, my young reader, let every idle:
moo.cut be spent in the soci- ty of the
j female sex. There you will new r fail to 1
find all that is modest, virtm os. lovely
; and pleasing—there the conversation will'
. ue mural, luicretdiag aW
and thcie love aud Heavenly fixings are’
. engendered. 1 have never felt more con-;
I tide nee in tlu divinity, or more certainty'
I respecting the immoitality of the soul,;
than when in the society of a lovely and
II virtuous woman. \\ hat pleasure do we
not experience in ihe society and with the
conversation of a ft-mule endowed with ail
| li f vi,tUl i her and sex i When
j ai ‘ lhc&s awiable traits— these lovely man- i
i ,Kr l i :r of lu \ Inai ieus iQ lhe springtime
lot life aud innocence are overy where to
11 be found and easy of access why should,
' V"ung men waste their time in profligacy
i and dissipation, when there i>so much real!
, pleasure to be derived from female society?
i Woman has bet u richly endowed by na-j

! sUrc lo mr n - l f wc man who tames bis •
| wild nature, and inspires him with that ;

; too often render odious to him-it is woman
that watches over him in sickness, that
souti.es hia vengeful spirit, and teaches
‘ ir U, i • art P oacc a,| d contentment.
I the Supreme Being scans to have im-!
parted the grave lone of command to the
voice of men, we cannot doubt that he has
■ given to that of woman the more delicate
. Uut nut Ws useful accent, which .educes'
and unarms; aud is not seducing or dis
ai ming. i u effec’, to command ? L it le*s
commanding because accomplished by 1
pleasure and f a ciiiaiijn ? Is there not

man . Can there he any eloquence more ;
pleasing or persuasive than hers, finding!

each other; who has always mild- J
ness, wisdom and innocence; on whose fea-,
! lures aud in whose oyts wc can read tho
purity and beauty of her soul. She speaks.
*hc smiles, she mover; every thing inspires i
us with confidence and love. “A lighted •
lamp.” says M*Uheync, “Is a very small j
thing, it hums calrniy aud without noise. \
yet it givr-th light to ull within the bon-e.*’:
And hi there is a quiet influences, which, .
like the flame of a scented lamp, fills many ’

Gentle, yc-l. glorious in its.ministry, sub- j
