The House boing in Commiftee of Vhe Whole on the Slate of the Union, ao1 bavin? under consideration the Mavy Ap propriation B»II, Mr. (irinnell, said Mr. Chaiiman: We hare liteneil this teinoon to a very remarknble spp^ch from thi! p^ntleman from Indiana. [Mr. Voorhees.] I rppret that he is not now in his peat, a* ahall notice a few of his most extraor dinary statements. One of his fir^t utter ances was that we are at the feet of a usur per. That i» no small compliment to the President oftheUun:tedS'ates. He in the army, and they hive come hotn* without a scratch, thank God." That is the condition of Ihe General himself. As I un derstand, he has never been in the range of musket hall or cannon-shot: and he its wor thy of the gentleman's compliments. The gentleman from Indiana eulogizes Clement L. Vallandigham as a Christian statesman. Clement Vallandigham a Christian statesman! "Whv, sir did we not hear him declare on.this floor during the last session of Congress that he never had voted, and he never would vote,a dollar to carry on tbis war? And yet he is lauded here HS e LBB Auj.JO, 1C8. '_ M. B. SISSON,-» 9ENTIST, a CbrNti-in and a patriot He was placed in the riyht position now aotong the Tories of Canada. He further asks, has the Adminstration given us domestic tranqirlity? I will Ml the gentleman why we have not now do mesiic tranquility? 11 is because th» Gov ernment has been enjatred in fighting the armed enemy at the Sonth and at the same time fighting the insidious enemy in the rear at home. The. people understand this. The gentleman fr- Indiana has alluded toano her pur«--minded patriot, as he calls him, Mr. Alexander Stephens, the pure mindtd patriot of Georgia I grant yon sir, that Mr. Stephens is a noble Democrat after the gentleman's pattern and why? Mr. Stevens has declared that the founda tions of the South rn Confederacy are dif ferent from those of any other republic, its tfnrn»r.stoni ranting on neiro slavery. The eentleman says that peace wool 1 come if the leaders on both sides would stand aside. Do the loyal people of the country ask that? Are twenty million of people to bow down before six or eight mil ion in arms, uph'-ld by three million of slaves! And yet that is the test the gen tleman invites, which allies hi* votes given during this s 'ssion of Congress to measures which in my judgment afford the hisrhest gratification to the traitors' aoaoiaVa at Richmond. DEMOCRACY I!* COK6RBS*. There is here. I know, nominally, a war and peace wing to the party in opposition, and the excuses found for inaction mav be represented by the pleas of the camel b:rd of the desert, known as the ostrich. Ask it to carry: No, I am a bird. Bid it ttv: No, 1 am a camel. Thus has there beer, an alternation of excuses here save on the que* tion of early adjournment for dinner and large appropriations of money. We ask for a more efficient Army WH to at once fill up our depleted regiments in the field and early bring the rebellion to a Hose, and you delayed it weeks bv denouncing the policy of the. war and the tyranny of a draft. The confiscation bill, with tender recrard for the traitois, you pronounced unconsti tutional and by your votes deliberately as serted that they who have got up this "dance of death" should not pa*r the piper, and that there is more justice and states tnanship in securing the estates of rebel slave-owneis to their children than to put heir proceeds, as a me&st.re of safety, in to the national Treasury, and of justice of giving a portion to our brave soldiery and the children of patriots made orphans our war of defense of liberty. To the resolutions which I had the honor to introduce asking lor more vigorous efforts to enli-it acclimated colored men in our army, and spare our orthern mechani sand firm er* to duir industrial employments snd their families, you made opposition establishing this, that your predjudice against black m*n is stronger than the love fbr your The proposed kittcnumrns vr stitution to blot out slavery hy law met with some favor. These and similar ac's give a denial to the assumptions so often inade in behalf of a neutral party, a non intervention party, a war party, or a peace party, being neither, but embracing all that is offensive in these designations, neither cold nor hot, proposing no direct in tervention for liberty is its spirit no war but with protection to slavery a condition precedent and peace on any terms. The rebel cause has been discussed by the gentleman from In liana, and others, and what more than a sigh can have escap ed the peace-proposing friends across the the Chamber that bankruptcy has become the second peculiar institution ol thp sooth! What terms of reprobation are heard for that soeicty which under the instruction of modern Democratic Cabinet officers has re duced stealing to one of the fine arts dig nifltd purjurv to the rank of the learned pro fessions and raised assassination to th® keyftone io the arch of cardinal virtues, su rearing None. The hope of the return wf the trai- y stone in the arch of cardinal virtues, which they made war, and the restoration .nlTr 9ff a usurper!

Is it the two classes of eitixens to whom I have because General Burnside was always in the front of his army and wt" ever ready to fight? A friend of mine who happened to have two sons in ti e srmv, once said to me that I should not criticise so much Mo Clellan, "for." said he. "he is a man that I love." I asked him what he had done.

PARTY APOSTACT. Later It turned to false gods, in declara tioo of war ^gainst he Seminole Indians to referred by the sympathy of the Miy^rof New York for Georgia by the detention of her arms and the avowed opinion of Jeff Davis that he should receive the substantial aid of twenty thousand men from that city, and by the Booking of thousands of Demo crat* from the North to the-standard of re- Pennsylvania that if the Rebels would hold out a little longer they would be suc cessful. for the Democrats of the North would arrest the war by defeating the con scription and otherwise render the Ad'nin istraion powerless to prosecutj it, and the earnest support by this Congress of Val landigham, the great sham hero leader which forebode, in the language ot the last Richmond Examiner, trouble in tha North we*t: gracious buds of pro nise which with approach of their elections may bud and blossom into bloody fruit of revolution." Such are the hopes which Democratic dd liance and legislation, Golden Knights, and peace resolutions inspire. And is this the neutral ornon intervention party, the treach ery of whose Naders has truly passed into history as that of Judas, and whose apost* cy tr liberty is as shameless as that of Ju lian to the Chiistian religion? Yet before our soldiery, who know that the war hts been prolonged and that thousands of lives have been offered up in sacrifice to love of slavery and of party, they f*in. like Pilate, would wash their hands of guilt, when all Neptune's ocean'' could not wa-fb their hands clean of the blood Let me give la ter and specific proofs of t+ie aposta?y of the Democratic leaders and my moremer.t shall clbt be on the flank, but the c&ftfr.

Such is the party in whose golden circles are held the carnival of traitors, and so base and shameless is its political harlotry, who would not for the honor of his country rather go backward and hide its nakedness than name the party founded by Jeffersoa as recreant to its first principles, and apos tatized? tors to the Union is found in the leniency the gentlemen from New York telegraphed of this Government to their institution for The gentlemen from New York, [Mr FjUt^ASpn Wonn,] ban m« i n his speech, and not having had an opportunity to otice it since I heard it delivered, I will use ts sentiments as illustrative of the sub ject now under consideration, being the mem her who, when tuanv of us were school boys, sat in this Hall, and is now the gentleman fertile in speeches, resolutions, motions, amendments, objections, and deemed an adroit leader of one wing of the party, and a presidential candidate, I commend hfs sen tmaents to th^se who are in doubt whether the Democratic party hasapostac'z^d or is dead. These are «oine of gushing, patriotic utterances: No Government has irsuie a foe with such unfelenting, vindictive milig nity as we are now pursuing those who came into the Union, with us." That is the precise sentiment of J«ff. Divis and Brother Toombs, who telegraphed to the mayor about the arms detained in New York after Georgia had gone out of the Union, resolved to fi »ht. Hero is a ques'ion? I ask. in h« name of ihe American people, when shall thi* hellish crusade of blood aad famine cease? A most complimentary allusion to the Gov ernment seeking to restore the Union, and to the soldiery in the field, and the braves who Mitfered and died by thousands with out a tear or a groan for their country! These sentiments fully explain the bloody mob in New York in resistance to the draff, which the rebel press declared to be worth more than a first class victory to their cause, which was fitly led by A ndrews, the Vir ginia Democrat, who, from the color of his paramour, WMS no antimiscegen. By resolution the gentleman styles this "an inhuman war," and brings the high wines of opinions into a single sentence, thiis: "Th's war raust cease, care not how, or from what cause, whether by exhaustion on either side by southern submission or suc cess by meditation, or by northern magnan imity, or by northern sense of self-preserv ation. And this'is the plump wente^ce and sen timent of a member of the Tnirty*i£ighth Con gres# on a war which called for the sac-i fice of hecatombs of men in that struggle where "resistance to tyrants is obedience to God." Indifferent whether peace is gain ed by rebel submission or success whether tne cou in —j ihe corner-stone of an on pire whether traitors shall pay for th«»r own musio in this dance of demons, or loyalty shall pay for al' whether history shall adjudge »he Gov ernment imbecile and our Army craver.s cowards, or our veterans return with victo rious banner*, havmg doomed slavery, and founded a nation so firm, so mighty and firee that Heaven shall look down to see! Sir, these monstrous cold-blooded expres sionsof inditf*»i«nee from a northern peace party are ruoie effective in giving that en courasement which prolongs (he war than the temporary victories gained by rabels in arms. The chief traitor, before vacating his seat in the Senate, resented the denial that in the citr of New York there were ten thousand men who would take wdes 'With the South in a war, by a declaration that there were not ten but twenty thousand who would join them. This is well autheutica ted, and stands with the cotemporaneous circumstance that, five days afteMhe State and re sist the Government of the United State*, ,0 watched and reeling brut# falls to be, their the pc*co I^mof ra/«y have, by cavils, party prey. Wa* eilch the spirit of the eary leaders?

The monstrous character and unmixed treason of this resolution fs seen in the de liberate attempt to keep soldiers from the Army that the rebels rouht triumph in the tiel l, and their quiet accomplices at home triumph by the success of the Dem ocrat party at the elections. It was noth ing thfn a pro tosition to tax the sol diers' farm at lo:ne to detain men from coming to their rescue who were dying in the southern miasma and threatened t) be overborne bv tha demons of secess on in arms, as thousands of their comrades had been when outnumbered. The fall of Vicksburz and Port Hudson fired anew the hearts of tha people, and the sick and the wounded returning in great numbers plead for men to fill the de pleted ra iks, an 1 in iuo*t of our towns there were ladies' societies formed to supply the wants of the soldiers in the hospitals and in the field, and county boards of super visors voted freely money to soldiers fam ilies, and so deiicate were these attentions that the recipient felt no degredation in re ceipting for money while husband er son was in the service of his country receiving the small compensation of the common sol dier. These efforts were met on th part «f peace Democrats by a system of secret otganizations to discourage enlistments, and while individuals and counties were ex hibiting such liberality and devotion, it was reserved for the only considerable Demo cratic county in the State (Dubuque) to ex hibit a elimactaric of baseness by a refusal to vote a dime to soldiers' families, and give tfitir pittance only as to paupers ask ing fot food and for clothing as protection from the rigors of a northern winter.

Once tbe editor and the press were controlling, and, by calm discussion and th-i annunciation of principles and approv ed historic precedents, nc# lasses of power were given to the party ruling so lon'. How changed! That great lever, tbe press, most effective in organism^ and coiiHobda tm pubkc opinion, lias passed into other hands—one lobe of the brain of the party ha?i been struck with paralysis. Three are for minds that will broo no ne'itrallity. and abhor leaders in dalliance with an oh garchy. Thus to have lost a welcome to the shop of tha mechanic and the kitchen of the farmer, such as the Demoaratic news paper had so long a n, tells at once of the rising sense of just ci with th people, fourths of the issues of the press, in ipjar- ing for to Te, means nothin» mW than to tihes, monthlies, weekly and daily |sheets an furnishes a striking commentary ou party aervility. In close relationship to the loss of tha press, that once powerful ally of Democracy, is its alienation of our scholars and I ox* cf control ovei* the academies, col.eges, and universities of the Union States. The sa gaoity of persons and parties in countries boasting of refined civilization and candi dates for popular favor holds in hijh esti ma'ion tbe unite influence from classic halls and the molding philosophy of professors, which finds power and many voices in ihe graduates' lovn for their miter.

COMPENSATION FOB WAB. In my few remaining moments let us turn from the perfidy of party to that power in the divine alchemy which brings compensa tion tor man's recreancy and the dire calam ity of war. It was this bloody baptism and the pall of mourning darkenirg the skies which led the government to bind the star of freedom on the nation's brow, and brought us the sympathies and inspired the hope» of l^e us true detno -racies of the world, and gave »avorof the God of battles. This ac­ ceptance of the arbitrament of the sword, with untold losses, has led to the awakening of latent energy and th- development of na tional resources and wealth before unknown. Foreign nationalities now stand in awe and dread of our collossal strength. Their land less and unemployed peoples who have heard: of our free homesteads, the pure air and free schools of the prairies, tbe acre* of coal fl elds counted bv million*, the mountains of iron,', a varied clime, and room for the industrial employments of a hundred millions of people, give us the promise of wealth and national resource which will make our war debt as' but the small dust in tbe balance. We have seen our nation rising into moral grandeur, her s ddiers the peers of the heroes of Ther mopylae? welcoming with a smile the short ening of their earthly pilgrimage, in the thought that daring tor die their children should find friends, themselves a remem brance and their conntry honor and renown. The fires o{ patriotism are bOrning with unwonted glow in tha hearts of millionsf crowding our fares and redeeming the time by totlinr ministries. Woman makes cheer fully a richer offering for her country's weal than the gold from th« mountain and the ocean's, pearl by the gifts of her lord and her child, and meets as ever before th« full wants of her country in its peril. By di vine compensation the church of Go5 has thrown up its royal highway for conquest, where there shall be neither tyrant nor slave, in that dawning era when the science and song of the nation shall be universal liberty. Souls are bianding in fiery raptures as we weekly learn of the fall of despotism in State after State, and listen to more than presiden-' tial proclamation of freedom, the voice of God in our war who "has sounded forth the trumpet toat shall never call retreat." It is the grand up-heaving hour of the ages, when^' centuiies take voice to teach us history and bid us re-enact justice for universal man.— This done, and who doubts that the issue shall be an early and honorable peace? Then the later generations will learn what, we forgot, that they need no Vnlcan-wrought armor in a good cause, for mightier than the shield of Achilles shall be His promised help' for the right: "As on the fier jr track of* ftsifrat fall* the aM bap tismal ralrt, And the ashes ot old Evil feed the future's grain." I* It Paiufut to Die? Many fear dtath lose than the operation iof 4yfhj. People fbrna tha most singnlar conception of the last struggle, the sepa ration of the soul from the body, and the like. But this is all void of foundation No man certainly ever felt what d«»th is, and as insensible as we enter into life, equally as insensible do we leave it. Tha beginning and the end era h«fe united. M^proofs are as follows: First. Man can hive no sensation of dr- 3 lose the vital power by which the feoiif dbra-' mutilates sensation to the body. In pro portion as the vital pw»r decreases, we lose the power Of sensation and conscious ness—and we cannot lose lif without, at' the same time, or rather before, losing our' vital sensation, which requires tha assist ance of the tenderest organs. We are taught,also, by experience, that ail who ever passed through the first stag of death, and were again brought to life, unanimous ly asserted that they felt nothing of dying, hut sank at once into a state of iusensibility. Let us not be le 1 in o a mistake by the con vulsive throbs, tho rattling in the throat," and the apparent pangs of death, which are observed in mnu persons w ion in a dying state. These symptom* are painful only to the spectators, and not to tho dying, who are not seusiblo of them. The case here s the same as if one from the dreadful contor tions of a person in an epileptic At, ahould form a conclusion respecting hie interna! feelings.
