Delphi Journal (Newspaper) - September 24, 1862, Delphi, Indiana M Delphi Indiana. W Edn bad a a a september Ltd a a from the Lafayette courier Pettit a Kansas la her. Below will be found Pettit a celebrated Kansas letter which May be appropriately termed Pettiwa epistle to the Butternuts although it was generally regarded at the time As an epistle to the marines. But All jokes aside it is a Rich and instructive document and viewed in the Light of subsequent events it indicates More than appears upon its sur face. No candid Man familiar with the associations of judge Pettit in Washington and remembering his open advocacy of the vol. Xii. A a a a a a a a 4 a wednesday september 34,lgg812 a. Ift vote appt Opria from the Evansville journal gov. Wrights a speech at Evansville. The governor commenced by saying i a he need not admonish the audience of the be need Noil Feu in Tho Presont period. The circumstances by which we Are s .1 i j indicate an important crisis. He and remembering his advocacy of the a a a addressed the. People. A Ivy a a cloption of Breckinridge end Unco pro Burg during the i. In a a to missing hostility to the Patriot Douglas at a time too when Tho Possession of a High judicial office absolved him by the Well settled principles of decency and propriety from dabbling in the dirty Pool of politics. An More than All this remembering the cold Comfort the War has received at his hands Runng All the Long weary months of this protracted conflict in the Light of these events no candid Man can doubt for a moment that John Pettit was in the a i and unreserved Confidence of the rebel conspirators and that but for Tho firmness of Tho friends of Doug a a who opposed and Defeated his Confirma Tion by the Senate would have been in a position to Render them material Aid and Comfort in the adjudication of vexed questions of constitutional authority in his judicial department. It will be seen that this letter was written immediately upon his return from Washington where the conspire Bure duri no the o last Twenty years but most la on political topics. He came not now to ult politics or of party but to give a Rea son for the Faith within him. His first proposition was that in time of War opposition to the administration inevitably ended in opposition to the War. In time of peace when pm tical per thl vide the people we can afford to differ. The people can discuss questions of policy and political Economy in a spirit of kindness and Friendship but in time of War the organization of parties was fraught with the worst of thirty years ago whigs and democrats could differ and act and vote in opposition to each other without any bitterness of feeling. Now the Man who organized a party in opposition to the War was the worst enemy to the government and the people. During the War of 1812 a party was organized in opposition to the administration and to ended in open opposition to the War and its originators and its partisans Weie crushed by the Force of Public opinion. 1 he same was True in the history of the mexican War. In time of War we want peace we turn from Washington where the conspire in ume of War we want peace we tors his Boon companions and political friends Lant n0 a forties and if a Man 18 maturing their plans for will not ask who brought on the War. This were night and Day maturing their pins for the overthrow of the government. That the conspirators plotting in secret relied implicitly upon the co operation of Northern democrats is a a Art of history and it is equally Clear that Bright and other loading democratic politicians of Tho North West were fully committed to the secession programme. The South was to achieve a bloodless Independence just As Pettit says without War or bloodshed a while two millions of democrats were to hold the federals at Bay. Then the North West was to secede from the new England states and form a separate Empire which might realize John Pettit a dreams of a f Strong government a and Reward the perfidy of the leaders by a Long lease of Power. But Pettit Bright amp co., of the Breckinridge firm reasoned with out their Host. The spirit of the Patriot Douglas was abroad in the land. The Mill ions of democrats who were expected to oppose coercion and paralyse the uplifted Arm of the government rallied under the stars and stripes and the whole aspect of Tho War was changed. Much of Pettit a prophecy thereby come to naught. But to the letter from the Leavenworth times Lett but Oliou Eon. John Pettit. Leven South City Kansas a March 25, 1861, a a my Emo ii since my return from Washington City 1 have been so. Often applied of verbally and by letter for my views of the present and future condition of the a in try and the ultimate result of our National dil Al cuties that i have concluded to briefly act Down for publication the conclusion to which i have come omitting arguments or extended reasons Content that they shall stand As opinions and prophecies and willing that my political sagacity shall be judged by their happening or failing to to pass. First All the forts arsenals Dock and Navy Yards in Tho seceded states will shortly a peaceably by Tho muted second Thoro will to no or but an Abor Tiro attempt to collect the United Sute Rovo nuo in or it the ports of seceding Statos. Third Thoro will to an extra session of Congress As Early As Juno to repeal the Morrill Tariff passed at the into session of Congress. This will hero to be done or no Vos a Tel Laden with foreign goods will find us was into any of our ports North of these teding states and the. United states a ii find themselves without Revenue or credit to raise Money upon for the Dally expenses of a Quot i not i Kwh. Brought on the War. This is not the question of a Patriot. An honest Man will Only ask How can the country be saved the Man who now talks of party is trying to deceive the people. You do not want part you want the blessings of peace a your fathers did. You want to know if we intend to carry on the War we ought to do something too. Now let us begin to make War. Let not our sons and Brave Young men go South to pay three prices for All they May need and that too to men w to have sons in the rebel army. It a a me men say we must practice conciliation. Do Vou conciliate the life of the rattlesnakes. T o you remove his rattles and turn him Loose with his poisonous fangs among your Chil Tho rebels Are worse than rattlesnakes. The one May take your life but the other strikes at your country. If you let a base men take the oath to Morrow they will be at your throats again. When the Laws Are executed we will have peace. We do not realize Tho enormity of this rebellion. 1 hey stole our mints our forts our Cannon our Enfield rifles our arsenals and our ships and made War upon our Flag and yet not a Man has been punished and now they ask us to let them alone. Toll to to let him alone who murders my wife or child but ask me not to spare him who strikes at the vitals of my country. They have broken the Constitution and you roust restore it. They Are striking at the life of our nation and we have not realized it. We want the Laws executed. 1 be Law say rebels must die must lose their property and we five not done it the governor referred to the Erie Hail Road riot there the Laws were set at Defiance and anarchy prevailed for six weeks had the governor of Pennsylvania sent a thousand men and punished the rioters there would have been peace in an hour. As a fruit of the rebellion he referred to the increase of crime in Indiana while there were but few convictions. The existence of a state of War he said begot a belligerent spirit among civilians a a j a a a Milf Lin Orfiss tried to Amend it if it was bad nor offer any substitute. Why this Tho governor referred to the proclamation of Gen. Jackson and Washington letter to Gen. Lee in Prool of his assertion. A a Southern senator was asked Ini in Gress what he would do of a tacked by baud of he would a Low his negroes to fit uht for him Wasin danger he promptly answered yes a a8 your fathers did. You hours of and if we wanted peace to must suppress your duty to your country m this hour of rebellion alluded to the ancient a a a i w it v 1 i m 1 4 Alti it i a in i i to the ancient the route he i reputation of the Senato and contrasted it a v a n Berlin with its modern examples the examples would travel More than a year ago in Berlin. Influence upon our people he had made p win we must execute the Laws. A t its deadly peril. He said he had determined be eau Muuro a ibid issued his message that he would know no party or Creed till the rebellion was put Down. If we have parties now we can have no peace. If you have a neighbor who opposes the admin Stratico who opposes taxes who opposes the War you can have no peace with him. You distrust him. The governor said he spoke for no Pany. He Vraa entirely Independent and spoke for Joseph a. Wright alone. We must execute the Laws. A traitor forfeited his life and property and he should lose both. If any one thinks Tho property of any one who holds office under Jeff. Davis should be held sacred he ought to go and vote for the 8th of january ticket. The slaves of rebels who get within the Federal lines should be freed. You Haven to a democratic congressman or a candidate but will Tell you to is in favor of Seph a. Wright Nee Rocs to work fur the soldiers. A a if 1 a a a 7zs&.zjs j s. Set Las Abraham bin Quot i i can vim. A j to your country i will have attained my object.�?�. U some men say this Union party is a he publican party. But when they say this they want to deceive you. I ask you to Day what five men have now the most Power in this government ? they Are Abraham Lin Coin Gen. Hallock e. M. Stanton Gen. Mcclellan and Gem i Ope. Three five men have More to do in maintaining this government than any other five men in it. If any one of these men is a traitor to May betray and ruin you. Four of these Are democrats and Abraham Lincoln gave them their Power. Are you not willing to Trust them. What should you think of Tho Man who denounces the administration of our Noble gov Evenor and of Abraham Lincoln ? Chi 18 n0 Friend to his government or to his country. Tho governor then spoke of the recent letter of president Lincoln to Horace Greo Ley As Tho emanation of a True Patriot and such a loiter As All Truo patriots can choir fully cud another Man says another thing Ana when Thoy can say nothing else they whisper in your car that this administration is Aholt ionized that this is an abolition War. Paulh vow a la vow i Well he goes just As far As Abraham Lincoln and Yot they say he is an abolitionist. They would if they thought it would and Vance their party interests Arm every negro. You must look out my Republican fiends or they will steal your Thunder yet. We had no victories when the 8th of january convention was held. But afterwards fort Donelson and Shiloh and 1 a Ludge Wei won and they found it necessary to hold a convention on the 30th of july and 1 expect they will Havo to Call another to Foro october. Lie Refo Rod to Tho reported achievement of icel and wished we had More such men in our armies. If another Battle is on another convention will to Neco amp sary. I Hen they will not dare to say it is not right to use Tho negroes. The governor said it is computed that to Havo lost $480,000, by Tho rebel system of confiscation. There is a vast amount of rebel prop i to in Tho North lands Money stocks &c., belonging to such men As Breckinridge Birdell. Mason &c., and Why should to spare this i take Tho Money and property Ami with it Send Tho negroes to Ilay to and Ibena. 1 to a i. J t ill s a 1 More than one Many a life is now at stake a Tho life of the nation is in jeopardy and snap we not use every Means that god has up into our hands to save the nation and weaken the bands of its enemies there is now one Issue before us. Ins Issue is confiscation. Whether punish traitors and protect Loyal men. The governor said he was not a great advocate of party creeds. He had held by office in the gift of the state but once been nominated on a party p a if he had Ever Given offence to any while governor of the state he was not aware of it yet in an administration of eight years a. A governor he had never been endorsed by a democratic legislature or a democratic convention. But they had always endorsed Jesse d. Bright. He had pro Jerrefy in Merit. He had divided the offices of the be Nevolunt institutions Between Democrat Sand whigs. He had appointed judge Gookim to the supreme court Over Delana 11. Eck because he had Confidence in the one and not in the other. Tto a or if they expected to save the Union by party platforms they would be Tern big disappointed. The honest patriotism of the people must save it. A a James Buchanan was elected president on a party platform and his Cabinet me the school of treason. He said Szajor it isted in Kansas As legally As in South Carolina yet not one Man in a thousand even in his own party believed it. If you believe it you should vote for the 8th of january 1 a never believed any Man could to enslaved where there was no positive legislative enactment establishing slavery yet Buchanan said slavery legally existed in Amansa where there was no stave code. \ sure that that declaration was not the foun Dation o the rebellion., at the Charleston convention one in two or three Hundred from the Orth stood by Bright who represented Tho administration while the rust stood by Douglas who Jere sen cd tote free democracy of the North. If 1 have to go with the abolitionists traitors i will go with Tho abolitionists. Will stand by will stand by any Man who Iho the governor said some thought it Strang he could accept Tho office from gov. Morton. I did not let party stand Between him my duty to his country. He never had done so. He did not expect to please All. To of pct of to do that which he thought would it. Aid in putting Down Tho rebel ion. In con t i. .1 i anoint Filhol Shl your minds. It is easy to vote �,�?��-Tion., but use is i unless they tote he Means of raising the Money in Baij goes round the country trying to prejudice the people against the 1�?Tax Law is no Patriot. Three fourths or nine tenths of the tax is levied on Weeast if the Law is wrong you can mend it but done to Send men to Congress who won t Vole for anything. These men voted against every measure to sustain the government Vallandingham Voorhees and Law. They also talk of Tho terrible debt and or stealing. Do they expect to pay no Price for their country. I done to like to talk much about stealing because there has been so much of it done on our Side. Buchannan a Secretary of War who was a Democrat stole More ban a that has been stolen since. He stole Cannon and 300,000 Small arms with which to kill our children. It and his i lends stole our forts our arsenals our mints and our soldiers. There Are bad republicans and bad democrats As Many of the one As the other now Fil Ching from the government this too is a fruit of the rebellion. I Hae but one fault to president Lincoln. I know he is honest. I know he is patriotic and be sires to save the country and will do whatever he believes necessary to save it. Hut think to wants Backbone. Perhaps he is waiting for Public opinion. I wish he had gone As far As i would i he most important question to be decider is i next election of representatives to the general Assembly. Jefferson said the government of this country would be the Power that held the Mouth of the Mississippi l to Mississippi is ours and if Lincoln and Congress can to open it Thucie Are 300,000 freemen in the Northwest who will do i your interests demand it your Freedom demands it. Will Yon Ever consent to be a Border state of that conned Iacy a you can you should vote the 8th-of-january ticket. How did Tennessee and Missouri go out of Tho Union. It was through Tom Ini Cuenco of the knights of the Golden Circle and Tho treachery of bad legislators. Did you Ever hear an 8ih-ofjanuary Man speak without attempting to prejudice you against the new England states. Now watch these leaders. Remember what Jease d. Bright said Asho left the so Nate. 1 hat he would Appeal to Tho verdict of the people and that speedily. You have raised 100,000 men for the War. Has Jesse d. Bright Ever come among you to say a word of your duty you have Many much men among you. H there is a Rianon Earth you should loathe it is Tho Man that can stand silently by at tins crisis. Hero Are knights of the Golden Circle in Indiana. You May have some Here 1 Hopo not. Xou will have no peace until that organization is a the gov. Described How they manage and How they operate.

Whereas Tho National government is engaged in a War waged against it by its enemies for the avowed purpose of its destruction and the subversion of our rep Ubhi can form or government therefore resolved that Iho present civil War was forced upon us by the Dis unionists of the Southern states who Are now in rebellion against the constitutional government that in the present National emergency we Tho people of Indiana in convention assembled forgetting All former political differences and recollecting our duty Only to the whole country do pledge ourselves to Aid with men and Money the vigorous prosecution of the present War which is not being waged on the part of our government for the purpose of Conquest subjugation or the overthrowing or interfering with the rights or established institutions of any of the states but to suppress and put Down a wicked Causeless rebellion defend and maintain the supremacy of the Constitution and to preserve the Union As established by our patriotic fathers with All the dignity Equality and rights of the several states unimpaired and when these objects Are fully accomplished and not before we believe the War ought to cease and that we invite All who coincide in these sentiments to unite wry us in support of the ticket this Day nominated. Resolved that we demand and expect of our executive and legislative bodies both state and National an economical administration of governmental affairs and the punishment of fraud against the government a Well As a fearless discharge of their duties. Resolved that As Long As patriotism Cour j 1 ref run Crit 11 tinny to Liberty a 5�?~,.� 0� of i members in the District of Columbia. He had always of that i in me i ww., believed Congress had the Power to do so but to thought its abolition should Havo been gradual that All born after a certain nine or a certain age should lie Sot free and then he would not have paid a cent to the owners. Tho proposition for emancipation in a thought should come from Tho states and should to gradual lie had Alo voted against dividing Virginia and against Tho 1 Acilie Railroad Bill but to had voted for cv7 measure to put Down Tho rebellion.

Have you any Stock in negroes my Fnu a is if you have id advise you to get and of it. They Are now not Worth More than $1uu a prejudices and ignorance of the pe0ple the governor then Road from Tho Rush Ville Union to show How Southern Union men regarded this question. His speech made in he Senate during the last session of Jet in. a a a a Durine the last session of they Are now not worm Muir a a a a a the the government. Fourth this extra session Uia a of Congress Ivill Call a National convention to consider it or difficulties and Amend the Constitution. N it All the free states and the Border slave Statos will be represented but there will be to representatives from the seceding states. The Border slave states will propose an ultimatum which if adopted will retain them in and bring Back All the seceding states to the Union but it will be refused by the free states and thereupon the Border states will withdraw and unite with the seceding states and hero will be the final and permanent separation of the slave and free states and a re formation into two distinct govern Mats which will mutually Aud reciprocally acknowledge the Independence of each other and which will be followed by like acknowledgement by All other nations. The convention which will now consist of delegates from the free states Only will proceed to make Many amendments to the Constitution for the free states adapting it to the new condition of things. Many alterations Are necessary and among them Are Extension of the presidential to my of officers a denial of the right of secession and a provision for coercing a refractory. State into obedience to the National Laws the of Teia Tion of All state lines or any abrogation of the House of representatives and vesting the Law making Power in the president his Cabinet and a Senate composed of one member from each state and such other amendments As will enable the government to protect itself and All the citizens under it. All these things will be done or t 10�?ot or bloodshed but whether the win live Lone ments thus constituted a a ,0t Zadto Side by Side without War 1 do not pro a a this will depend upon the temper got mid conduct of each. Kansas can now Vul do. Figure for herself. What will be her future Security and Prosperity or adversity situated directly West of Missouri with no Way of getting in or out but through a foreign country and each citizen of her can judge tor himself what will be his future Security for life or property. Pettit and Othor Loyal papers in the South but not one of Tho organs of the 8th of january party dared publish it. There Are several great questions to Settle in you believe that a Man who it rebels against his country has any rights under the Constitution and Laws of that country you should Voto the 8th of january ticket lie need not say he is a traitor and take up arms against his country. If to throws difficulties in the Way of the government in time of War and attempts to Divide the Loyal people of the country he is a traitor. If you think he has Nono of these rights then vote As every one of these 8th of january men voted against the confiscation Bill or Are of this government was made for Loyal Mon. Traitors against the government have no right to either life or property under that government. Loyal men should be projected and traitors punished. We should do everything necessary to weaken and overcome our enemy. The confiscation Bill specifies five classes against whom it �perat�8 at once. Jeff. Davis and the men who hold commissions under him Are subject to the Law at once. Privates and private citizens Are exempt until a notice of sixty Days is Given if they then continue in rebellion they too will be punished. The rebels should to made to Bear a part of the expenses of the government and of the War. He spoke of the honesty and patriotism of president Lincoln vindicating him from the false charges and insinuations of traitors and their sympathizers. He did not vote for Lincoln but would have voted for of Quot hat jury told him that to had tried the sign As Rov caled to them by one of the but neck to Tho jul i of july conc to and More him fifty thou abort of lha to Convent on wus composed in a great Maui of that kind of men.

Then you used Douglas Thunder but after Douglas a dead of carried out your platforms. 1 Hus you so platforms Are but of smal account. I would not give a Copper for a political platform. Gov. Wright declared the Imperial prestige of the South was gone. Hereafter we will have no More brow beatings or cow i diners or the using of bludgeons in the the Days for such things Havo passed and henceforth men would have to stand on their said to had some men among us who live by peddling ignorance and appealing to the lowest passions of Mankind. Hence they wont do Justice to these countries nor to their own country for fear of being called abolitionists. He cited the Caso of Robert Small who had performed an act of great bravery and of signal service to the government. He had taken from the rebels a ship and nine guns which were to have been used for the destruction of our government and the order ing of our friends and children.

He chose Tho latter. 3d. That in making the Advance a Large Force of the enemy a cavalry was attacked and repulsed and upon reaching a High Ridge and forming a line of Battle a conflict ensued for an hour Between our own and the enemy a forces in which the latter were badly worsted.4ih.

That another stand was made on he same ground occupied by our forces in the engagement of the previous afternoon and for a while the enemy was kept in Check and at one time their right gave Way but finally our right flank was turned and our men were forced to fail Back that while Tho Battle was raging at the fiercest a courier role up to general Manson and delivered Nelsons order dated at Lexington that mom ing directing Manson to retire.

To amp to the troops who fought under Manson had Only been in service from ten to Twenty five Days some had never had a Bat Tallion Drill and had no knowledge of what a line of Battle was. 9th. That taking into consideration the rawness of the troops there has been no Battle during the War where More bravery was displayed by officers and men than in the four Battles near Richmond. 10th.
