continued :

and knew that, if such were the case.
Banks must be in a critical condition.- j
Monday morning brought the news of his ,
disaster and the Secretary’s call for troop? ‘
I went M once to Governor Andrew, and j
asked byn fur die latest news. Bu gave j
it; asked me my opinion of the condition j
of affair-; and then asked me to write a
letter which would arouse the people of
Mansaebnetts to enlist, by. presenting (lie
truth of the matter. Kseited hy appre
hrnrfou uf what had probably befallen our
army, and the regiment in which I bad
several dearly loved friends. 1 sat dowo
and wrote an appeal to the pcrple of
Massachusetts, and *ga.*e it to Governor
Andrew, who sent it, with a note, to the
erenii g papeis for publication. When ll
saw it iu print, I for ihc first time realised
•.ho interpretation which might be put upon
it by *hc Govern limit, but it wac then to* •
late. Following the letter, several editor
ials were witten in H>ston yjpsra, severely
attacking Mr. Suotun’s war policy, whioh.
I harve te*n told. were sent lo Mr. Fun
ion,* ns written at my instigation, but with
which I hi d no connection, I having been,
at that time, a warm defender of Mr.
Stanton. I further told him, that the
editor of the offensive paper, who chanced
.to b my brother-in-law. would make afh-1
davit tw (he f:*cf; and that I had always j
been warmly attached to the radical party,
whilst the aforesaid editor was one of the i
strongest cmiscrvaiivfs.”
The President said, in reply. “Wdl I
did not know you were dismissed. J never
saw the order that I know *f. until to-day,
though, of course, it has Wen laid before
me and received n.y ofteltt sanction; and i
I don’t know what the chai gea are. But I '

said t, “will you permit me to

Aral lfpc dame into my memory fa cause
of complaint against me ) ;> “Wfeen the

creet and aninilitary; bur certainly the pun
ishment is (iGproportioned to she offence.”
“I do not say.” said Mr. Lincoln, “that
you are discharged for that, because I do
tint think you are; but I do say, that you
had no budness to send it.”
lit* then turned to some papers. I did
not like to leave the ma'ter thus, and again
hrppta led to him to let me see the charges,
us there might he sotne mistake which I
could explain. Mr. Lincoln turned to me
with impatience, and said ;
“General Stone and his friends have
been trying for the l ist six months to got
at his charges, and he can’t, and I don’t
tM-iiere you will succeed much better. The
fact is, I am inclined to believe that you
are a mischief-making fellow, am! g(nd for
but little ns an officer, uud capable of doing
a great deal of harm; and, therefore, the
somer you are out of service, the better.”
I asked the President to look at the let
ters of recommendation I had from several
generals and other officers, which may be
found in the appendix; but he refused to
do so. I asked him. as a final question,
“if. then, nothing could be done?”
“Nothing,” ho replied; “at any rate, at
present.” s
W.lson and Hale got off in the Senate,
i the other day. some very flue “sentiincuts”
j on tlie freedom of speech and of tin* press,
j Such talk sounds very pretty, but the
j facts ate not so wc!l calculated to excite
the endiusiasin of the real friends of free
discussion. We believe no out-and-out
array, unless it be in Get*. Grant’s depart
ment. Gen. Banks prohibits them. In
Missouri they are accounted contraband, j
bo a'so on the Pacific coast, thousands of
miles away from the scene of active miii- j
lary operation*, yet Senators get up and ■
congratulate themselves and the who)**'
country on the devotion of the present 1
j Administration to the principles of fr;e j
discussion, and this, too, af'er it tried its
best to crush out every bold and manly
j utterance against its principles and policy
It is also proposed to make voters of
soldiers in the camps, while they are de- 1
uied the right to take papers upon both j
silks of the issues to be decided. Due* '
any one call this free discussion? There ;
never was a greater farce than this pre- •
tenec of the so-calh-d Republican party of'
devotion to freedom of speech and the j
press They bare shown themselves the* I
most bigoted and fanatical opponents ot'j
freed om iu every respect The spirit |
evinced by them would not only forbid
all tree and manly discussion, but it would
stifle all social progress and reduce our
age to the inert condition of mankind be
fore the revival ef learning. The “Re
publican 1 parly have acquired some repn
taiion in foreign lands .is well as .nr own,
as the friends of bb-ral governiii rt nt, and
as earnestly attached to free institutions,!
hat it was all based upon the Lise founda
tion of “freedom for the negro.” Now.
| when liny boldly avow their design of
subjugating while men, >f enslaving their
: own race in order t* carry out their fanat
ical theory iu regard to negroes, the veil j
which cr-ucealed their hypocrisy is torn 1
j aside. They no longer, except in lip j
) service, show any devotion to free prin- !
ciples of any kind. They have become the j
allies of the monarchists of Europe, have >
given np the Mouroe doctrine, and are j
steadily carrying out, on this continent. |
j the designs of the deadliest enemies of
j Democratic institutions. How long Will it I
be before the people whom they have de
ceived will see tins? Mr, Jefferson said
in his day (hat a v*t majority of the peo
j pie were truly Democratic, but the Feder
alist* had deceived them. So it is now.
Thousands belonging to the “Republi
can” party are sincere lovers of their
country, but have been misled. When j

From the Chicago JSni*.
In the Cincinnati C<nnmerci\tl . a Repub
lican paper, we find the following story of
Mr. Liuculu;
Mr. Lineolu expressed his troubles to a j
gentleman who called on him. a few days’
ago, iu the following language ;
“The military tm-u, it seem* to me. will

give Lew. Wallace a command. I tell
him that Hal leek says Wallace is of no ac-1

Me goes sit me then, and says Hat leek j
isn’t worth a cent, and oughtn't to have aj
cent. Halleck wants to kick Wallace out. !
and Lane want* me to kick HalUck out.” j
“Well,” said the visitor, “I’ll tell you!
how tu fix it to the satisfaction of Loth
“How is that?” inquired the Pieiddcnt, i
“Why, kick ’em Loth out,” was the •
“No,” said Mr. Lincoln, “ths.t won’t ;

“Well.” said the visitor, “ifyrti don’t!

pS? con t know that Halleck i* a fool, they
think they do, and 3.’* all the Same.”
Slavery, says the New York Express is
politically dying daily. Slaveholders, 100,
arc politically dead. —and so i* American
cotton, sugar, tobacco, and the bulk of
those slavebuldicg productions which have
for so many years enriched the United
State* and othei perilous of the world.—
In plico of cotton fields we behold blight

do not see the end of the begiimit g, but
we do see how Secession and Abolition,
through the desolation*of war, have rooted
out Slavery.
We have taxes, debt, waste, death,

Tbs Public Debt and Mr- Chase
The New York Commtrcinl makes the
; the daily amount of debt contracted uinec
July 0J.45U.0U0. and at the same rate
<*f increase up to June 30 next, it will
be 0367.001).000, making the debt at that
period 0J,(JOO,OOO,OOU. The Secretary
is at present authorised to i-sue two do
spriptions of paper to meet that liability.
Th * first is the balance f the $400.000.-
.000 five per .cent, legal-tender notes of
! which 052.200,000 were issued up to the
I Ist February.
j The continued emissions of tho legal
tenders will cause currency to become
more abundant and cheaper. It is alrea
dy for some purposes offered at six per
cent. If it should fall in opm market to
five per the legal-tenders would be
110 longer currency, but would be held
for investment, which would of itself pro-
I duce a counteracting edict, and make
; money dearer. On the other hand, if
, the 10-40 stock should be put on the
( market, it may be expected to akwirb
capital so as to restore the highest rales
|of interest. In this reaped the power
jof ;he Secretary is very gr*st. Ho has
| absolute p.*wer to sell the stock at any
I price and on any terms at his discretion,
and could, consequently, by depending
i entirely upon it, pressing it upon the mar
f kM. jiprßfnce a ff ry diffwcnr state of things
from what has hitherto existed.
