Brooklyn Daily Eagle (Newspaper) - October 25, 1861, Brooklyn, New York Since be third Eft re to week had elapsed we have the state committee of great pro p1� t0,, and have doubtless have rent y do to c Regency we May look h e e n m b b e d g or h n f n r n f s to r t. In a n d v e to eve in bar fan r before election. And yet Twa sol Stu Litfia d cheat sympathizing with re Bellion and try aeon without principles without the rank and he Ofa party except such As have failed to comprehend the nature of the rebellion and Aie yet lighting in imagination some political con list Over again without Public Confidence or consistency Dedonne All As republicans who when our existence is to Embring in the balance prefer a great generous and ennobling popular movement to such groveling and associations or to following such perfidious Lead ers. And As often As they Are exposed As Charla tans and trimmers acting in sympathy with Trai tors they bawl loudly and lustily that the demo cratic party is abused i the democratic party Forsooth the democratic party consists of the honest masses of med and not of self constituted committees and defunct regencies. I love and Revere the democratic party but scout and defy and despise its Camp followers counterfeits hangers on Aud Swiss mendicant. If the demo cratic parly is assailed by exposing those who have brought it to defeat and disgrace then by the Bame Rule Joe Smith when he was characterized a a beast and an imposter might have exclaimed that christianity is denounced or when the Blear eyed painted harlot is called by vocation be May cry out that virtuous woman is assailed by obscene Cpl Herb. The democratic Parl has been betrayed crippled and crucified by corrupt and vicious leaders Bat these will strut their Brief hour and perish and the poetic Conception will be realized that t Ruthc Rush de to e a r thew ill r ise a g a in. T h e e Tern a l ears o f g o d a re h e is who would be Iree themselves must strike the the United und harmonious movement of a great people to Sueh a fearful crisis embracing members of All parties but acknowledging the supremacy of tone presents one of the grandest moral spectacles of modern times. Without pre concert it sprung from the masses in spite of Covili Cirg Ond even hostile organi Vitious Ful y armed for the conflict with Reti Ellion abroad mud treachery at Bome like Minerva the goddess of War and Wisdom Tiroui the Braiu of Jupiter. To it should so suddenly have risen to Complete perfection was not to have Yeeu expected but with no platform save the us rallying cry but the Union no but the stars and stripes no purpose but tic overthrow of rebellion it has already carried terror to traitors abroad and reduced the smog Geidig Gasconade of traitors at Bome to secret tremulous whispers. Before it faction trembles and tears its air and gashes its Teeth in silence. Craven politicians find it too Strong for their party harness and fall Back abashed and even Billingsgate the last desperate re sort of detected villainy pays it and those who have been Active in its advancement the generous lib Ute of opening upon it and them her floodgates afresh i but the Union rivulets Are gathered in a single is Ream whose Broad Aud deep Aud quiet yet Resistless current will Bear away All opposing obstacles and sweep upward to Gladden and bless the extended Dumcius of Freedom Aud humanity to give strength to lire weak Alu Hope to tire despairing and a Promise of Triumph to the faithful. Of How Many patriotic hearts leaped Lor Joy when Ibey saw a us died people set party in Abey Ance and engage in one United Effort for the Dre Tei vation four Cobei Ishell land. What thanks Givings Ascender we it Lopes beamed what glad Ness prevailed amongst the masses As this party iconoclast entered non is benign Mission. The Dago is of cliques and committees and regencies Are already crumbling beneath its feet and their reign of imposition is closed. The Levy of political blackmail has been abolished the fruit of lobby legislation will not defray the expense of reaping office brokerage no longer pays and those who have lat ened upon Sueh spoil fur years can now Only find employment As hired mourners to mimic sorrow for the downfall of secession treason in the Empire state. But non the overthrow and destruction of these elements a More enlarged Equality of the masses will arise the popular Triumph about to be achieved will be permanent in us rectify ing influences those who Are politicians by Trade will not be in demand the government will again be a government or the people and not a government of committees caucuses and packed conventions. The Union movement was demanded by the exigencies of the occasion. It was necessary to save us Frorup Drifting to Swift and Terri ble destruction. It should be supported Hyall Loyal men for itself Ana not for is candidate merely. It was an aet of practical emancipation not of Blacks but of a Hites not irom Soui Heru but from Northern slavery not. Irom shackles upon the hubs but from letters upon the Immor Tal mind. T a k e h e a r t the e p to n is re h o u r d raw s n a hear the downward Bear of wings and freedoms Trump of to the people woe Anu fear t o n e w w o r old s Ivra n Iso old w o old s k in g it is proposed that la rec shall to propositions of place made to rebel dior propositions of peace to men with Amain Uhls f tin v in of a Fien , generals of the a80 vanished and in the chamber of deputies lathe pre Pence of an excited and victorious people who s the galleries of that chamber appeared be Duth efs of Orleans leading the heir to the French Brote lir Partine the Oracle of the peole arose and alter hearing suggestions from different politicians and revolutionists and men of great note add Many of them of High Genius he uttered thebe words which seemed to be the inspiration of this hour in times like these we must not look to the formulas of statesman ship but descend into the Depths of the soul of the people and sound there the Deal ivies of the Titi re 1 for this reason fellow citizens that i hts nominations have proceeded from the Depths of the popular soul and have come direct upon the National ear i am with you this even ing add most heartily and emphatically endorse your Nomi unions. As has already been distinctly and in strains of Luminous eloquence reiterated upon the popular ear this Day the principle h ii g at the basis of their nominations the Prin Ciple upon which this movement derives its stability and from which it will obtain its Triumph is an undivided unequivocal Devotion to the american government to this hour of its great period uncompromising prosecution of Thia holy War. Such being the Case i sustain it heartily i sustain it with nil my heart i sustain it with Oil the vigor of my brain. I will sustain it with All the. Vigor of my Arm not Here alone Omodest these citizens assembled in peaceful but upon the deadly scenes which Anait me in the future. And Why a cause of i have before Baid this is n to Only a i its a necessary . A just War because not ouly the interests the Honor and the very existence of one of the finest one of tic Moat prosperous and decidedly one of the Jrnest if not the supremely freest nation the Sun Ever looked Down upon. Kec ussury because the property of that Union in is for bras forts arsenals custom houses in All those guarantees for a dignified Ond Independent nationality have been in some instances seized Iralou Lenty and id others violently and ii stay vetted irom the supreme government nun Nitice the necessity of this property being re stored to the legitimate stewardship which tic people tii rough the Constitution has mined to the bunds of the present a Doninic Tion. Moi is it less sacred bad just and necessary because not having been provoked but Tuv ii g been kept Back by attempts to win and Cou trivia in i hot no Ore now in arms having not been resisted us ii hostile arms appeared upon Arlit cod Heights and were shaken in the fic of the buy majesty of the american people in them d � i Ibe National capital not until i i in u did the president Call non the american people to strip the sword which Bas a to sheathed since tiie Max iced War and assert for themselves the Suic Luy m d Envoi ability Aud supremacy of Tho aug r icon chief Nisi Stracy. Into the antecedent Cir of this War it was unnecessary for him to go of they were forcibly Analysed by the Vene Rable a i Leinan to preceded him. The history is dirt Luwi Lur to the people Young Aud d i i n e i m. Commandments or Auy us the oth n eur ii us Prim Isles of the religion which the vast Iii Jom of his nation professes. Lid gov , ii Dio not prosecute the War energetically and most ii of Rousky would be wanting in its duty to the c Mizens who have j 1 iced it in o v or scr Ligins \ unmindful of its Obi Iii us to the Histand i Luxure and fit failed to Assort the Euprey Liucy it be River from the people then say i this government deserves to perish. A voice from the platform no. Or. Meagher certainly. Most decidedly if Liis did not assert its supremacy Aud to Taid out in the face of the rebellion or fit knuckled under to the rebellion it deserved to Pei big. A voice again no. Or. Men it a who cries no As or. Pick Wick Tuio at he supper it must a some vain Mai in would Sot a y a haberdasher. Laugh Ter who Are those who cry out for Poce. Tort who Are against War under any Circum stances add in cry country. War indeed is a Ter Rible visitation. The hoi Rojs 4 it Luve been p timed in imperishable colors by poet Ana Painter and even tic sculptor lob left in Many a Al a Goric to 5-Iatucan Homo Nitsou of the calamities Bat. Proceed from it. But War has its Virtues and blessings As Well As its calamities Aud every great no tio d has passed through such an ordeal As tint which it has pleased go this american nation should now Nass through. England has had her civil wars Ber wars of the red and White roses her com Williau War her Williamita War her Wor of Ibe succession and War of the restoration and reluctant As i am to acknowledge even the giant Ness of England i must admit and join the world in acknowledging that she stands among the first class nations in the world having derived rather strength than incurred weakness from these wars each and ail of them leaching her Les sons of sagacity and How to solidify Ber position in the world. Grimany bus had her so years War she is not an exhausted nation but a nation of guat Energy and great philosophy of Scholas tic and National aspirations which Are not Interior to those ninja lid France which is not City tiie rival of other european nations but their pre eminent mistress. France has had her withering revolutions nut out of these Circum isms Ehe has come with u renovated Constitution und new Beauty Aud so of Spain. Never was there a country so worried by intestine conflicts Aud provincial revolts and at this time to coun try has risen up so proudly to assert is ancient tical renown. It is pm Ting Forth its Politi Citi ambition into that sphere which will renew perhaps upon a broader scale those glorious conquests and colonization which have been Impi la Tiabl set Forth in the pages of Frescoln. Here the a r has had i a Good effects. It has brought out great qualities great enthusiasm great patriotism because it lius brought out from the deep fountains of the Public heart that patriotism which has been polluted and defiled by the touch of the Mere miserable local politicians. Therefore i am not Torry for this War and in Stead of being justified in any attempt to Depre Cate it i am induced to encourage and incite it. I should be derelict if i did not Call upon my countrymen to serve this government with All the Neive of Llie Irish Arm and wit ii All the warmth of the Irish heart. Cheering politicians say Why dont you leave the americans to fight out this War we irishmen who Are Here Are All americans. Renewed cheering be tween the adopted and the native born citizen Ibert is no difference except the privilege of the Pendency. This is my Home Liis is my tug Ond 1 feel that 1 Wacula be unworthy of the Wel come tendered to me Here if i did not with All the Energy of my Arm stand by that pkg in life Ond in death. But they say Why Are you not in favor of this at tempt at Independence on the part of the South since you advocated a similar one in Ireland i Tell you plainly if Ireland was an Independent nation and were Connaught to Rise up and secede i would stand up in the Irish Senate and vote supplies to put Down that rebellion. Whatever oath the citizens of the states May have taken we Irish emigrants took an oath of allegiance to the whole and undivided country and As that oath should be perfect so should the country be Indis soluble and perfect. With regard to Tho Triumph which this movement has achieved in bringing the people into one compact mass 1 May refer to a similar movement in Ireland. The catholics and protestants were divided and the catholics were disfranchised. In 1782 Tae Irish Cathelis and prot stauts stood together and fought Side by Side. This sex Milel would have followed in this country. In referring to or. Buchanan or. Meagher stigmatized him a the greatest criminal in this struggle. Not alone upon these High grounds do i Brand Here with you but upon that ticket Are names which will stand in Competition with any inthe country. It is enough for me to r mind y of that it is headed by Daniel 8. Dickin son. Applause on it is also the name of Hon. Fleury c. Murphy who was the custodian of this lug in a foreign country. Applause he then referred to or. Lalor candidate for Assembly in the 2d District whom he described Asa gentleman who would rather Icse his right Arm than Compromise n single opinion that he honestly entertained. Believing that such principles As lie at the basis of this movement Aud which dictated these nominations arc recognised not Only during this but Bubee quent elections during the War tic the government will be borne triumphantly through its deadliest Aud fiercest perils this us c receives my most Hearty support. He believed the government would Eulum out triumphantly for the glory of amerlean history Aud at Large. He could almost hear the a yous Pua b from the thousand pc heaven Point aug Ireste Hsiug beyond the sea that the rebellion which arose without provocation was put Down without Nurey or rather without Compromise without one single Iota of Chi Promise. Heie they would be reminded of the first in at disasters which fell upon the fathers of the first great revolution asserting Riu in Independence and laying to Itin danns of Bat Grffit Empire Wanh hit is now the study and patient be of Llie South to tear up and de stroy. These Bills were the Sei nes of your fore father s first disasters but this great sky rises As on imperishable Monument to vindicate the our und its Ouicla of that period and he Felt sure tie it tiie is a god in heaven and As pm car ried in Bis hand this i g for nearly a can Tui to nil per Tea of the in in Luc Natac of , and ultimate comm re ennobling Sci Cuciz up Ilie Rivers of the Amazon and to the for Arctic , you with Maud hair until jul of upon in Vii Piziol to Over a whole Limo Chi flu on inseparable Peak. Apf.l.u.-. Speech of col. Jesse c. Smith. Col. Jesse c. Smith was the next speaker introduced lie was received with applause. He said that owing to the lateness of the evening to would not detain them very Long after him they would h ave an Opportunity of hear ing his Friend or. Murphy. He merely desired to say that As his Friend or. Murphy and those who preceded him had always acte i with the democratic party to had always As consistently opposed that party. It was a mat Ter of congratulation that the Republican party was in such a position that it could act with those of opposite politics. He came into life Asa voter about the time of the organization of Tho whig party. He followed its banners As Long As the whig party sustained its Organiza Tion since its Disben Donmen be had followed Tho Republican party until it has triumphed by electing a president of the United states. You May say we Are proud of that Triumph but he Felt proud to Seo men of All parties com ing to the Aid of the president in sustaining him m this unrighteous War on the part of the Southern rebels to Felt prouder when be saw men of All parties sustaining the government without respect to party. saw the Man that had lately commanded the regiment which he had the Honor of commanding some years fall covered with Honor and with glory that could never to dim med when he remembered that a Large share of that regiment was of opposite politics to him As they were to him when he commanded them when he saw these men standing by the government could he fail to sustain those who sustain the government against rebellion. He would sustain them and he would act with them in any position to which he might be called until they carried the War to a triumphant termination. He was for carrying on the War to this end it May take More than five Hundred millions of dollars it May take More men than has been called for he was for giving All Money and the men necessary to carry this War to a triumphant end. To must sustain the govern ment and we will sustain it. Applause to said if the people should choose to ratify i nomination for the Senate it would be Bis sworn duty to support the Constitution of the United slates. The United states organise the militia and it is the duly of the St the to Drill and discipline it a. This duty on Ibe part of the state has by a imperfectly Dune. Tho difficulty Bas been that the n Ati or has been in the bands of men who do not under stand it and the militia has there lore been called a use his machine. He bad been connected with the militia organization for Twenty Long years it was for the Way ii in managed a nearly useless machine. It would to in lets until the state adopted the principle that the poor Man who gave Bis time to a military organization be paid Tor Bis time applause and those who act Iridio pay fur commutation should not As now be Bairas my and annoyed by the manner of collecting a Fine of 75 cents costing five or ten dollars in collection through a . Applause there should to a system o another character adopted. There were Many subjects he would like to talk to them about if it were not now so late la is too late to speak to you on the subject of taxis but lie recognised the necessity of practising rigid Economy in every department of the government that we Mav be the better Able to Bear the taxes that will be item silly to sustain the general government through its Triail and that government he would sustain at every Hazard. Applause speech of or. Murphy. Tajc were numerous Calls for Lenry c. Mar by. After a minutes or.

The Brilliant oration of or. Dickinson wiil be read with interest not alone by the great mass of the people who agree with him but by the few who Cavil at him for stepping out Side of the narrow lines of party Aud nobly Aid ice the great movement of the people. The Lime for action has come to be sure but the time for discussion will not cease until every honest citizen in the Loyal states shall be convinced and aroused to his duty. If there be yet one among us who hesitates As to what his duty is we ask Bim to read the words of one who has been through a Long life the most uncompromising advocate of the constitutional rights of the South. The traitors among us if there be any who Are waiting Only for National Luia to shriek in our ear that portentous note of woe i told you to will not be convinced. They will Dis Organ ize parties Aud disorganized their Gover neut to fulfil if they cad their unpatriotic prophecy.

Henry c. Murphys speech will at tract the attention it deserves. He stands where All who know him knew he would a be found by his country. He says speaking of his position fellow citizens you know me As life Long a Democrat a member of that party which liar sustained the South on the great questions at Issue in regard to slavery As Long As those questions were before the United country for discus Eion. Bat when the South sought by rebellion against the constitutional authorities of the land to accomplish its purpose it severed the tie which hound it to the Northern democracy and made the North upon that Point a United party from that moment there was there could be Only two parties Oue for and one against the War to crush out the treason. For my part i hold it to be a duty which we owe to ourselves to our children and to the friends of Liberty throughout the world to sustain the govern intent in its efforts to establish its authority. Col. Sni in declared that As a Republican be was proud to aet with All who acted for their co Unity. The lateness of the hour prevented him from sex plating on local matters but he declared himself in favor of abolishing the military flue , while in favor of compensating by a More efficient plan those who devote their time to perfecting themselves in Mil itary training so that they May be ready when their country needs their services.

The Herald gets off a Good joke to Day in rela Tion to its War maps. The Herald says it has received letters from All quarters complimenting us on on military map6 for their accuracy Aud As teaching the people geography by illustrating the great events of the Day. Some wag is Evi Dently making fun of our contemporary. The idea of instruction in the Herald s War maps is Good very Good. The writers of the complimentary letters with Nice discernment say nothing of the clearness of the maps and the readiness with which they can be comprehended this would be putting it on too thick and would spoil the joke. The Herald volunteers on its own behalf to say that through its maps More knowledge of geography is imparted than at schools where there is nothing to impress it on the Youthful mind. If instead of seeking to impress Geog Raphy on the Youthful mind through the Aid of the Birch the teacher will impose Asau addition Ai in fiction the study of the Herald s War maps we will guarantee a sensible improvement or else we will lose All Faith not alone in corporeal but in mental suffering As a stimulus to intellectual culture. The Shower Bath is said to be a severe punishment but we will venture to say if the Herald sum maps Are introduced into our states prisons in its Stead the criminals will prefer the first As the lesser of the two evils. In the event of the Herald s War maps being placed among the list of punishments in sing sing we shall expect a Lurge migration of the criminals to the state Lunatic Asylum at Utica and we warn those who desire to keep out of that institution not to lose their senses in the mysterious labyrinths of the War maps of the newspapers.

The Nashville with Mason and Slidell on Hoard it appears has escaped the Vigi Lenic of the United states steamships and the plenipotentiaries Are now on their Way to Europe. The information Given by the Southern papers that the vessel had sailed for Europe direct was As might have been anticipated incorrect. The Pursuit of the government vessels after the Nashville is therefore a wild Goose Chase. The newspaper people seem to have had a shrewder idea of Tho Destina Tion of the Nashville than the government it is said that there is not Coal enough in Charleston to take tie Nashville to Europe and if there were she could not have got out of Charleston Harbor if she had taken enough on Board to sup ply her engines with steam while of the voyage. The Nashville therefore slipped Over to Cuba and landed the fugitive plenipotentiaries at Cardenas i 1111 whence they Ean easily get to their Desti nation. The question of Southern Independence is. Not to be settled in Europe the settlement in in the hands of the generals Avo Are to Day be fore Washington with a larger army than Napo Leon commanded when he braved the United Powers of Europe of Leipsic. If that army Ful Fil the expectations of the people the vitality of the rebellion will be crushed out even yet before Slidell obtains an Audi Eire of the French emperor. _ t if.

The news from the South we Laid before our readers yesterday is cheering in the extreme. Our Fleet at the Mouth of the Mississippi which Captain bound in Hollins destroyed turns out to be uninjured not a Man on Board of it received a scratch. Hollins dispatch Bab not been equalled since Jack falstaff gave the details of his encounter at Gads Hills. Shakespeare lived not for a Day but for All and he must have Hollins in his minds Eye when he sketched boasting Jack falstaff. We append Hollins account but a3 sir John was the More truthful my of the two we give precedence to his account of the per paring he gave his enemies on Gads Hill fal.

It was a repetition of the old Story Brave men led into a position where Victory was hardly possible and re treat entirely so by tie blundering of somebody the new Yolk evening Post coincides with the views expressed by us yesterday the tight the Post says now non the ascertainment of facts turns out to be Only a repetition on a larger i scale of the Battle of great Bethel. In other words there Bas been another stupendous Blun re it. Yve Bave always been taught that the last trap in which an experienced military Man would allow Linroe Elfton be caught was an impassible River in Bis rear add a Superior enemy in front. Any intelligent Tyro who Bas read the history of a Campaign would know better than that and yet it Wae precisely Sueh an error which our of fleets on the upper Potomac have commit us. One thousand missing a is the heart rend. Ing result Marie More sensible and discouraging by the lots of Ore cd the Best and bravest souls in the army. Our actual loss in men it is Likely will prove much less but our actual loss in character w ill be much greater than is represent by the numerical report. The Herald is disposed the paper which Bave pointed out the blunders shown in this engagement and says they desire to Embarrass the adm Nistra Tion. If there be incompetency shown by men n whose hands the lives of thousands Are placed the administration will be far less embarrassed by having the fact pointed out than in disguising it until it is made potent to the world by far More ghastly results. The Herald gives us Esti. Mate of the affair at Edwards ferry As follows the fact is that although a severe engagement has Token place in acquiring Possession of the right Bank of the Potomac and a considerable loss of life has been experienced the Success achieved con scarcely be exaggerated in import Aree and the Federal cause has obtained a Tri Mph which must be a subject of Universal rejoicing. It has put the entire right Bank of the Potomac irom Point of Ronles to Washington Eity in Possession of our Brove troops and a utterly broken up the plans of the rebels who Bod As a feint to deceive Gen. Mecle Llad thrown a heavy Force on the lower store of that River. We have Long bold the opinion that if any other paper displayed the same contempt for the judg ment of its readers which the Herald does it would not be tolerated for a week. In adjoining columns to that in which it is announced that our troops have acquired Possession of the right Bank of the Potomac the following announce ment appears dated Edwards ferry y e s term a to n be a in in g the a t a la r g e Force o f t h e e n e m y w e re a p p to a c h in g a t to o p o in Toa b o v e a n d b e � to a n d in the e in m e d Date v in in Ity o f the e ferry t w As jul d g e d and v is Ible to w Ith d a w the p o r tio n o f o u r Tro o p s Frau n tie v org in Iash o Reb o the a t e d w a re s f e r by a n d h a r � r is o n is is la n d.

We Are satisfied that no Man in the land feels More keenly the Blunder at Edwards ferry than president Lincoln. While it deprived our country of an eloquent statesman and a Gallant Soldier it Dep Ivel the president of one of earliest and most devoted friends. It is the interest of the administration and it is the interest of the people that we shall be victorious in every contest with 1 he rebels. It is the blundering of generals that Embarrass the administration Ond not the newspapers whose duty it is to expose such blunders. The people have the cause of their country too much at heart to be disheartened at partial failures but we should not be the less anxious to avoid them.
