Tbe present w*r. be said, promises to be a long one. and baa with It foreboding* of fundamental change. Tbe prime question wruld be for many year*, aa It was with ?ur forefathers, un<i?"t wbat kind rf a toyemment will we live * Not only oar Inst) intions but ourselves were on trial, and it wai to be determined whether we are df serving rf a Republic, and able to defend it The nation wa? b'irn strong and vigorona, but diseased, and tbe blotch of secession and treason were only the breaking out of the humor wbich poisoned the blood Tbe putting down of the rebellion was not of necessity tbe security of a popular government. Asa nation we we're diseased in many other respects than ? - ? _ 1 Hi % J X *-1 0 __ll who lutfry. i u? Knavery ana in?n;af 01 pi'wtlclans. the deep-**Ved selfiannesa of the people evinced by tbe multitudes parading their "claims upon tb? country,"ard the robberies of contracture and public thieves were evidence* of tbe comparative unfitness of the people for a Republic. There mutt be a revision of tbe understanding of that clause, " Governments are Instituted among men. deriving their just power from tbe consent of the governed." and we must govern the seceded Slate* in their paroxysm ?f Insanity, without this consent, together with the colored popu!ntior. until the latter can be brought into 'he full enjoyment of their popular rights. We mun alto revise our theories or tbe rl^nts or H*at??. h&d every State that Las defiled itself with treason, mutt pass through purgatory before I: can come bark into the Union The nation was ab?oired from any obligations to slavery, by the very act of the oligarchy The men who were so fearful of injury to the institution would coirplain of the miracles of Je?us Christ in casting out devils, as an Interference with vested right*, and of the raising of Lazarus as a waste of grave clothe*' The safc-gusrds of liberty bad been rendered null and void In the slave States, and it was our duty to set aside the safe-guard or slavery In the Constitution. This was the only condition of the preservation of a popular government. Imbecility was as fatal a* treason, and the nation could only be saved by bold strokes The danger would not be over if the war ended without harm to slavery, and be would prefer a recognition cf the southern Confederacy to their being brought back by a construction of the Constitution similar to their principles He would Interpret the oa?h of Abraham Lincoln in the language of his principles, "Slavery and Freedom cannot both live." and hoped that slavery would get the death blow If this failed, and slavery was not destroyed by the war, there would be a Federal democracy, and a motley crowd of falsely called conservatives, between whom the struggle would again break out. There con'd be no true peace until the utter extinction of slavery was effected.
