PRESIDENT I have not attempt- ed to address an audience for '.he lust ten months, in consequence of a bronchial difficulty, from which I been slowly recovering. It gives me no pleasure to spenk when I cannot make myself dis than has been manifested by a few of the citizens of Milford Neck, in their con- demnation of the letter above referred _ to. It has touched tfee feelings of every defective man in this vicinity. The letter did not include nil the citizens of Milford Neck, as erroneously asserted by some, buj; was only intended fora part of them. Though no personalities were guilty conscience betrayed the vile monster within. Their indignation, bit- ter tannts and hatred of the letter above referred to, tell unmistakably whom it fits. There is one mistake in my letter dated the 10th of July, which it may be prop- er to correct. I stated in it that a part of the members had seceded from the chnrch" because their ministers had preached Union sermons. This, in part, is not correct.- Though they did threaten to do it, they still remain and instead of orderinz their names to be stricken from the class-book, ordered it taken from the subscription list.with the amount lthey_had volunteered to pay their preach- 'era This does not look any better on their side than the former statement. It shows to the world that there is thine rotten in Denmark." I do not intend to misrepresent auy one, bnt to meet oat to every man justice where justice is due. With this correc- tion every loyal man admits my state- ments to be trne, and well adapted to their condition. This fact is corrobor- ated when they flare np and stigmatize its author with the bitterest language that can escape from their venumed ton- ,'gues. That thero ore-Wth traitors OIK! -toriea this community no one who is acquaint- ed with the people will attempt to deny. Aud every one who has expresseed their indignation at the letter I wrote for your paper, is considered by two-thirds of the people as belonging to one of these classes. The distribution of that infamous sheet, the New York Day Book, is inflaming fe the minds of the people with prejudice and hatred toward the government. Bv the pernicious influence it has over a certain class of men, treason is growing bold every day. Wherever we End company of tories assembled, there we who arrogate to themselves the name of peace Union aim to cripple the olliersno pleasure to here me, if my voice comes to them broken and faint.

My lime to speak sligl latter must receive the appellation of the former. We have a number of both classes in' this vicinity. Poor deluded creatures what office they expect from Jeff. Davis I cannot tell. They follow the behests of party spirit, and act on the recognized principle of royal infalli- bility, and their party leaders can do no wrong., Had the republican party re- belled against the jurisdiction of the proper authorities while J.

But for the sake of party they will sacrifice their homes, their lives and their country I ANDRONICUS. For the JTews and Advertiser MILPOEB NECK, Julj 22, 1861. MR. EDITOR I am daily disgusted by the disloyalty of a part of the citizens of this place. They are now, as they ever have been since the bombardii.g of Sumter, trying to incite the of men who they believe will act under their treason- able influence, and stand by Jeff. Davis and his tory co-workers and cursed con- stitution. They denounce the adminis- tration of Abraham Lincoln and his Cabinet, but near as they doctrines and principles of the vile traitor Jeff. Davis. And further, I have understood by good authority, a part of them have threatened vengeance was tffiriy years ago, and improved the opportunity But, to- day, of tongues are loos- ed to plend glorious cause of univer- sal freedom, why should I be culled to take this stand? "To eild refined gold, to paint the lily is wasteful and ridiculous excess and in this roar ot cnnnon und clash of arms, I am well content to ije silent. Of course, I believe that all our diffi- culties are in consequence of the exis- tence of slavery in our country; that that is the evil fountain from bitter waters have flowed which all onr and that this will prove an almost idiotic war, if it shall not end in the total abolition of slavery I do not believe the ernment can have the success it is seek- ing in this struggle, unless liberty shall be proclaimed by it "throughout all the land, unto all inhabitants thereof." I voted, therefore, very cordially, for the resolution offered by my friend Mr. Fos- ter, calling upon the government to fe'ze tfiis favorable opportunity, which, in the providence of God, has been put into its hands, to finish the war, to remove the root of bitterness forever from among us, and to make it possible for as to mincle together, North and South, like kindred drops, and form a Union based upon justice and freedom, from the Atlantic to the Pacific I believe we are growing up fo this conviction, in acoor- lanee with the sentiments of John Quiri- cy Adams, rehearsed in the hearing of lie, that they may be their damnation is sure Under these circumsluuces, I take great hopp. I should cry, "Shame to the people of the North 1" if they did not, with their principles, and their ideu.s of government, come up to the support of the administration, offering all they liave of blood unu treasure, until this hand of conspirators shall be put down, und shivery utterly oblitera'ed.
