Address SHAW & CLARK, March 15,1861. Biddeford, Maine. Freedom of TUought and Opinion, 0L1) ARE'S WAR. SURRENDER OF FORT SUMTER ! ! In the teeth of bis late professions—in opposi tion to public opinion—in defiance ol Gen. , SCOTT'S remonstrance—in disregard of the j wishes of Maj. ANDERSON — ABRAHAM LINCOLN, toe poor imbecile who occupies and disgraces i'Ce Presidential chair, has thought proper to commence a civil war—and what a commence fiieni fbe first battle is a triumph for South i.ardina ! Fort Sumter has surrendered to the -Aemy, and the great North and her people 1 - tnd defeated and disgraced before the world ! \ M'utiJ quite recently Mr. LINCOLN had de termined to evacuate that Fort. He had in ;.'u;:ritd Maj. ANDERSON of this determination,! n.J, with few exceptions, the Republican jour nals of the whole North applauded and be-' ' patt'-red him with compliments for arriving at i! ts conclusion. "The fort cannot be rein-; j forced without naval force aof 20,000 men," i ny t.i the in told us ; and, "even it reinforced, ■ will accomplish nothing," chimed in others. I Hjj 1 aDer this policy had been agreed upon by ! i IN'.'OLN and bis Cabinet, and endorsed by nearly all the Republican papers, a sudden i . j.'uuige came over the Preideot's .dreams, and e airived at the conclusion to drench the: '".Kiot.iy . if. blood by civil war ! Who advised i change of policy f Who influenced the I Pl ' SIDEUT alter he had assured Maj. ANDERSON mil the country that be would not resort to I - icioti ' V\ tio influenced him, we say, and ! reed him to violate his word ? The question ! is easily answered. Tiie extreme Abolitionists, i , who direct ami control LINCOLN, were the men Alio d. :iwndt ! civil war, and compelled the j Pi Mdent, against his own judgment, to attempt impossibility, the reinforcement of Fort limn. GREELY, the man who "prefers the Chicago platform to fifty Unions;" SUMNER,! , W..0 ,-aul the ' Soutii must be humbled ;" LOVE 't i iV, the crazy Abolitionist who compared JOHN j BROWN to our Saviour ; CARL SCUURZ, the | ; Itilidel foreigner; AME, who wants an J •'anti-slavery Bible ■" WILMOT, the one- i t idea Aboli'ioa Senator from this Stale—; j'hese are the men who forced "old ABE" !to declare civil war. They demand the re- j ' mforcement of Sumpter, notwithstanding Gen. ' SCOTT had said that it never could be done.— Why did riot these war-like gentlemen assist in the hazardous undertaking ? We notice that I nearly all the late U. S. Senators from the ! South, are in the ranks ot the volunteers, fight- ' ;mg for what they believed to be their rights. Why don't WILMOT, SUMNER, LOVEJOY, aud PURLING A ME shoulder muskets and fight tor the j .Pucago platform \ They demanded this war, p ,: 'W Jet us see their courage tested. • ' — 4 " J ' (J'V'l RNILIMILIT E ! of LINCOLN S war as tar AS it has goue. Bella j are ringing in the South, and the loud huzzas jof her people are heard—blood has been snil- j led—men have been shot down by their breth- ; j ten—Sumter lias surrendered—the North is j disgraced ! When hostilities are to cease, God | only knows. We may tu all probability will, j have a war of years, and our couutry may be drenched with blood beiore the end. Our Union is doomed—doomed because ol the triumph of an unprincipled sectional, Abolition 'party. Heaven protect us ! But, now that we are in the diiliculty now that we must look the tearful reality in the j tare, our duly, as goou citizens, h> plain— we must stand by the Government, we must sustain the President, and hold up his hands iu this j crisis. Pennsylvania, we doubt not, will do her whole duty, and will assist, with miglitv j power, to crush rebellion, come fiom what quarter it may.— American Volunteer. A TOUGH "YARN" ABOUT WESTERN' VIRGIN] A. "Old," was especially given to "Tough ; Yarn-spinnings." On one occasion, while sit | ting, after supper, before a huge log fire that t oared and crackled in the deep throated chtm m y -place, he commenced, as usual, to enter tain our cletical fri> lid with a few exploits of j bis young days. He remarked, "Game is not ; igli oat ) as | I r.ty as it used to be in old times." "No," replied his friend, "1 suppose hunters | are more numeious ?" " Not nigh onto as plen ! Tv," continued Uncle Gabe, who seemed to he | loit lot a moment in a reverie, then giving his grey locks a tos's and elevating his shaggy eye- t brows, "uigh unto us plenty." When I was a young man in these parts, people had notroub- ! le to get anything they wanted in the likes of meats. Sometimes they had trouble to raise ! corn, as the tarnal varmints had to be watchtd i to keep them lrom carrying away the whole 1 field. One day, along in the fall of IS—I con cluded to go out and scout about and see if I couldn't bring home a few wild turkeys, as the neighbors said they was uncommon thick. I hadn't been out afore. So I tuk down "Old ; Bets," and started towards the Yough, (Yough- ; iogheny,) and when I come down to the river, I looked on 'totber side and I see sixteen tur keys settin'side by side, on a limb that hung out over the water. I fired away and split the limb to let the turkeys' toes in.— The ball went through, and Ihe crack closed up and held 'em last ! 1 loaded and fired agin and cut the limb off, and down it fell in the wa ter. I see the wild honey coming out by the gal lon from where I liad cut it off. I "started to wade across the river to get the turkeys; and when I had got about half way over, the fish ran in under my trowsers so thick that they busted ofl a big metal button at the lop of it. j VCF" A priest, proceeding to the chapel one | Sunday morning through the burial ground, observed several sprightly little girls seated on a tomb-stone, and wishing to be jocular with them, asked what they were doing there.— "Nothing at all, plaze your riverence," was the replv of one of thein. ''Nothing .'"said he. "What is nothing?" "Shut your eyes, your reverence," retorted one of them, and you'll see it." ; WHERE ARE THE WIDE-AWAKES F Night after night fast fall our streets blazed ■ with the torches, and resounded with the shouts of men and bo\s, who kept military time and wore glazed caps and horse collars, denouncing the South and her institutions. We warned them time and again of the sad and disastrous consequences which must follow from their in sanity. We begged of them by every . cotisid | eration of patriotism and humanity to desist from a course that must inevitably result n>ru iin to the country. We referred therr. to the j wise and prophetic warnings of such men as | Washington, Clay and Jackson. But the | Wide-Awakes would not listen. Lanterns,, j and capes, and flags multiplied in our streets. : i Banners floated, and drums were beaten, and ' in a while the deed was done. And now, Gentlemen Wide-Awakes, how do you like it ? No longer than last autumn vou ; had work and fair wages. But how is ,t now ' ; Where is your work and where are your wa ges ? No money—no employment, unless you take service under President Lincoln to do le galized murder upon your countrymen. War is now begun, and men will be needed to fur nish food for powder. The people ot the South are armed and ready for your reception. The diseases of the Southern climate are waiting pa tiently lor their victims. Rut where are the Wide-A wakes now? Where is the half mil- j lion of Wide-A wakes who were to overrun the ] South and reduce it to subjection ? Their ser- i vices are needed, and we insist that they snail I do the fighting.— Greensburgh Democrat. THE~RONN AGETAX.

The pattizans of the Administration, who are so violent in their denunciations of all who do not approve of the policy of civil war, do not pretend that war will result either in the enforcement of the laws or the restoration ot the Union. On the contrary, the admission is explicit}' made that "war 1 with the seceded States will not bring them I back into the Union." Indeed, ater the daily ; exhibitions of intense hatred to the Southern I States, made by that class of Republican jour- j nals most anxious for war, it is impossible to ; believe that they desire to be again associated j with the seceded States. It, then, war is not, to brng these States back into the Union, w hat i is its object ? When we are called upon to ; stand by the Administration, we would like to '• know what the Administration is driving at. WIIO ARE FOR THE UNION ? Ttie Black Republicans pretend to be in favor of the Union, but they refused to pass; the Crittenden Compromise, which would have j saved ttie Union, and insured quiet and j prosperity to the people. The Union profess ions ol the Black Republicans are worth noth ing, so long as ail their acts eieate hatred and ill-will among the people of the States.— The present course of the Lincoln Administra- j tion can have no other efl'ect than to destroy \ the Union forever.— Gettysburg Compiler.
