All their rights will be duly espected, end their wrongs redressed when madeknown. I h<<se who through the dark and weary night of the rebellion hare maintained their allegiance to the federal {ovwnmunt will be honored. The erring and misguided rill be welcomed on their return.

It is now morethan a year stnoe I met you in the free enjoyment of a united government. During this lapseof time an organised band of traitors have conspired to destroy your liberties. I call your attention to the addresses of these men, threatening the destruct ion of the government should Lincoln be elected to the Presidency. South Carolina commenced a series of aggressions, basing them upon the imagined wronga site would sutler in the event of republican success. These preliminary encroachments need not be rehearsed. The threatening condition of public affairs called for some moasuresof poc ideation. Butler, of Harper's Ferry, moved the appointment of the Committee of Thirty-throe. Ibr members from South Carolina refused to act upon lb# committee, and the members from Florida followed. They desired no compromise. In the lenient course pursued by the government at this hatching period of the rebellion is felt the truth of Jackson's dec la ration that he had left nullification half put down; he should have hung John C. Calhoun and his confederates. As surely as Jell'. Davts and his subalterns have rebelled, this unnatural war against tho govarnment will be put down. The favorable moment, as they thought, had arrived for those rebellious men t? strike their blow. lhey spurned all attempts at conciliation; they would accept no compromise. They telegraphed homo to sei.se the forta and other public properly along Cite Southern coast, in which thsy were obeyed. Refusing repeated offers of adjustment, these bad men go before their people and tell them t here was no chance for terms of satisfaction. Pix refused to vote, In order that the Crittenden proposition might not pee*. B ichanan'e Administration died out,and he died with it. Ha had told Ms friends that Mr. Bell would carry Tennessee.

Buchanan wan in the plot from the first; Breckinridge after a while. Douglas would eoerce the seceded Stat, e. Breckinridge said nothing on tht subject. Lincoln was inaugurated. Tlis aeegioe alternated as usual. No re maskable phenomenon exhibited itself. The dement ad politicians of the Smith kept up (ho turmoil.
