The friends of the Union Ynve brought about this while Tho opposition have used their powerful organization to prevent it with the. Evident object of weakening the Union armies by Dis franchising the Soldier and thereby strengthening themselves it the approaching presidential election and in connection with this election let us reason together. The Campaign of 1854 is now fairly opened. The Issue upon which the Campaign is to be made is clearly the enemies of the government have publicly and declared their Pur pose in the contest that declaration places the duty of patriots in a Light a Broad and Clear As that of noon.

We will therefore it to those who May order. It in Oil other Coffee. Thea Coffee huh Hen used Lor More than a Cen Tury in Paris Ami Xiuhe its introduction into this country it has been use by some of the leading French bes Taranta Here. The a a isms Are said to be the Best judges of Cohee and great Lavor in which it is held by them is the Best re commendation that can be produced for its line flavor and healthy effects upon the human sys ponets it is the same that impelled the chiefs of Anne a treason to attempt the Over throw of free government on this continent in 1860-61. Neither time nor nor regard for the Pence of society in the Loyal St Flea nor the de solutions which Hare devoured the Prosperity of the South in the grip of War have wrought any modification of their hatred for a government founded upon the opinions of the people esp eased de through the ballot Box. It is the part of Wisdom to anticipate evil and to prepare to destroy it before it grows too formidable to overthrow. Tho attitude of the a the presidential contest drives Risu to a Poriotis most serious of any which can engage the Atten Tion of the True Patriot and Good reasonable to suppose that the chiefs of the rebellion would have accepted terms in the outlet if at All. It is alleged by on opponents that. Or. Lincoln hurried the nation into War not Only without Constitution Al warrant but even against the wishes of the rebel chiefs themselves. They reproach the Congress then in session with having re fused to adopt the Crittenden Compromise measure and thus forced the South into rebellion id exercise of the right of self de Fence and self preservation. It is unnecessary to pause to show that All this transpired while the reigns of Power were held by Southern men most of whom Are now in arms against the let that pass. The question binges upon the responsibility of he rejection of the Critter Den Compromise. It was rejected. By reference to Page 109, part first of the congressional Globe of the second session of the thirty sixth Congress will place thai responsibility for the rejection of that Compromise where it properly belongs. It will be seen that the Crittenden Compro Mise was Defeated by the substitution to effect of what is known As the Clark amendment the record shows that the vote on the motion to substitute 25, nays 30. The vote on the adoption of the Clark proposition taken directly after charge in this War. Those who go before the country upon such Vic Iowa pretexts Are not deceived the however much they say deceive the ignorant and unsuspecting. To charge self deception upon them in a matter so unmistakably Clear would be equivalent to charging them with do not deceive them senses. This pretext of seeking the defeat of or Lincoln that peace May return to our Borders covers a sinister purpose. Ii they wish peace they can have it but in two in a cowardly abandonment of the straggle followed by disunion or by a More vigorous if possible prosecution of the War. Thus the True Issow upon which the Campaign is to be made becomes sharply de none can deprecate the horrors of War or desire the return of peace More than do the warmest supporters of the National Union nominees. But they ask for and will acquiesce in no peace that is not founded upon the integrity of the Union and established upon the principles of the Decla Ward yeas 55, nays 23.

That question is briefly stated shall we lusting peace through a a cation of ibis War for National life or in terminable War through a peace based up on the Issue is sharply defined. The it Tern nees of the Baltimore convention decisively declare for peace through effective War the utter aces of the Chicago convention As decisively pronounce for the alternative presented in the question stated they mean that or Llev Are without meaning. The opposition to or. Lincoln contemplates disunion As a cure for the ills under which we lie. His defeat would Divide the continent into factious nor is this Mere assertion. The political history of country for the last four years a a mass of overwhelming evidence in support of its entire disgraceful truth. And first in evidence of its truth we have the declaration informal but not less weighty because reiterated and of the rebel chiefs that the South will not treat for Pence save upon the basis of a re cognition of its the press of omits no Opportunity to impress upon us end upon the peace cab Only come through recognition. Recagni. Tion is but another name for and finally every european nation has come to regard the insult of this War As certain to be Ono of two subjugation or disunion. It is the Clear conviction which truth brings to every rational enlightened mind. It is therefore entitled to great weight second Only to the resultant fat. It is due to the opponents of or. Lincoln to state that they pretend to believe m the probability of peace and Union through some Compromise the terms of which not clearly stated. It will be easy to show the futility of such Hopes if it bus not already been done. It will not Bea difficult Tusk to show that such a belief does not take n conviction. The leaders of the Are men of great and of j v j u t l statute it would also have had enough to reject the proposition when offered independently. There was a falling off in the negative vote on the proposition As compared with that on the first motion to substitute of seven vote. This is accounted for by the fact that senators Benjamin and of Louisiana wig Fallard Hemphill of Texas Lyerson of Georgia and Johnson of a Kansas six Southern senators sat in ration of Independence. They recognize greater evils than War such As this is in which the nation is plunged. Divide the nation geographically and to what end do we inevitably with the Prece Dent and Justice of secession established and be the fact. Are few Public to copy. Those facts preclude it Uny comp Toniee Abejie recon Aitio add but Lemb Tion of peace through Compromise. It is their seats and refusal to vote. Had these six Southern Moo voted the Clark proposition would have been Defeated by a majority of four votes and the Crittenden Compromise could have been taken up Aud carried by the same majority. It appears of record then that the Crittenden com Promise was rejected because Sis of the leading senators from the South virtually refuse to vote for it. A motion to recon Sider was carried some weeks later and a direct vote upon the Compromise was taken. The proposition was lost by a single vote. But one of thesis senators referred to voted on that occasion nearly All of them having withdrawn on the secession of their respective Statts. Had they remained to vote for the Compromise it would have been adopted. Foj the chief object in alluding to this mat Ter is to show that when before the overt of War was committed the South bad the election of Compromise or War she through her highest dignitaries deliberately chose War. The South would not have Compromise then. Is it reasonable to suppose that. It a oui accept Quch an accommodation now her rulers have the Southern masses by the Throat and can Mould them to their imperious will. They Are playing for a great stake. They could not withdraw from the contest now unless forced into withdrawal. Pride love of in bred and fostered by the institution of Force them to elect As they declare they do elect extermination rather than submission and Union. Early in the before the government bad taken the aggressive presi Dent Lincoln offered peace on most Liberal terms.

Sowar involves nations in its fearful vortex that social and political renovation May follow. Asa fire sweeping Over the Fields licks of the chaff and stubble yet affects not the solid so the fiery trial which we Are called upon to endure is consuming the notorious Crimea of society. The nation will Issue oat of this struggle stronger and purer than be fore. Wrong such As confronts us cannot it in elite. Little More than a is no peace permanent peace there is 09 such Dis year since. When Lee with Bis rebel army invaded Pennsylvania and when the Fate of the Republic was decided by the Battle How prompt wicked and de signing men were to inaugurate the insurrection in new York City trusting in the Hope that the government was not Able to maintain the supremacy of the Constitution and the jaws. It will be Long before the blackness of the crimes committed by that conspiracy will be obliterated. As another example take the recent conspiracy discovered in the the handing together in secret of a Large number of men the concentration of thirty thousand stand of arms and a Large Supply of ammunition. The papers of. This Sprincy which were seized evidence too clearly that their design was and is the overthrow of the Republic trusting that division and anarchy would shield them from harm but in utter disregard of the concomitant wrongs to the Rob Bery a word desolation for the time. Now fellow citizens in both these exam Ples the moving spirits Are prominent men in the opposition and controlled the nomination and platform at Chicago.

Who is deter mined on a War Gander in scale and blood Ier in results than the world has yet witnessed there can be but two issues out of the present difficulty.

In so choosing they choose for their children and their children s children. They can of a pub Lic nature in these pregnant times that shall not cause coming generations either to Revere or despise them. The re election of or. Lincoln and the election of Andrew Johnson w his associate indicate to the chiefs of the rebellion that the War for Union irad permanent peace must go on fed att Airm.
