THE DAILY PRESS. PORTLAND MAIN* Wednesday Moraine* April 13, 1804. _-^ The circulation of the Dally Press is larger than any other Daily paper in the State, and double that of any other in Portland. Taras—$7.00 per year: if paid strictly in ad stance n discount of $1.00 will be made. “ Peace at any Price. ” With such & caption as the above the Argu:* went oil' in a leader of nearly a column’s length on Saturday last, the principal object of the article being to ignore the idea that Democrats—any Democrats—are willing to secure peaco with the rebels on terms dishon orable to the national government. We copy an extract: It is a favorite charge with a portion of the abolition press that Democrats, or at least a class of them, are in tavor of "peace at auy price,”—that they would, if they possessed the power, at once stop hostilities; and then, if the rebels relused to return to the Union, they would assent to a disruption of the Union and recognize the independence of rebeldom on any terms that the rebel leaders might de mand. We quite agree that persons bolding such views might truly be charged with being tor “peace at any price”—even that iuvolving the deepest disgrace and the blackest dis honor—that they would justly merit the scorn, condemnation and contempt of every true patriot. Wc thank our neighbor for the expression contained in the coucludiug lines of this par agraph. It indicates that he, at least, is for no concession that shall sunder the hands of the Union, ibr no knuckling to rebellion so long as a slate represented by any of the stars on our national emblem remains outside of its legitimate orbit as a member of our national system. Doubtless when the editor of the Argus penned the foregoing paragraph he looked upon his party as the true conservator of the Union, and upon its leaders as true patriots, for he says: Rut. wrA tliArp anv hnlilin<7 fhosD views, as it is charged that there is? We have never seeu such au oue, nor, iu a some what extensive acquaintance with Democrats have we heard of one entertaining those views. That both democrats aud abolitionists have Individually, iu the excitement of personal de bate, advauced views which they did uot real ly eutertaiu and slated propositions for which they would not in calm momeuts, he at ail responsible, is probably true. * • * We have never, however, heard a Democrat utter views such as are charged upon “peace meu at any price,” nor have we heard of their utterance. Were there any iu favor of peace at any price, they would be bald disuuiomsts. That U the plain logic of such a position. They would not fight at all aud would give up the Union, unless the rebel leaders would agree to return in peace to its folds. Kvery oue knows—who knows auylhiug about it,—that the rebel leaders would do no such thiug, aud that while they are invested with the power which great armies give them, they will not permit the masses of the people of the South, to returu to the Uuiou. To advocate peace at any price is, therefore,to advocate disunion— a position which no Democrat occupies. Rut Democrats are for |>eaec—all for peace, — on the basis of a preserved Constitution and a restored Uuion, and upon no other condi tion. After writing such sentences as the above, embalming every Democrat as a patriot, and claiming that not a single member of the household had ever uttered a disloyal senti ment, or would under any consideration con sent to disunion, it must have been exceed ingly unpleasant for the editor of the Argus, turning to his telegraphic columns,to sec in the same paper which contained his pointed de nial of the disloyalty oi his frieuds, that while he was penning that denial one of the oracles of his party—Hon. Alexander J-oiig, of the Cincinnati District, Ohio—was niakiug enun ciations iu the House of Representatives so shocking to all true patriotism that his expul sion from the House was proposed ou the spot. From the Argus’ Congressional report of Saturday—in the same paper containing the editorial from which wc have quoted above — the following is clipped Irom the House proceedings of the precediug day: The House weut into Committee on the President's annual Message. Mr. Long made a speech of an hour's dura tion He denied that the oppoueuts oi the Administration were giving aid and comfort to the enemy; quoted from Renton, Seward, Qaiucy Adaius, Fillmore, aud others, to show that coercio i could not be successful under u Republican system, and tliat the last three years of war had proved the truth of the proposition. There were only two questions, first, the recognition of the Southern Confed eracy; second, the continuation of the war for the subjugation of the South. Of the two he preferred the former. He believed the Democratic party were for peace and would he placed in ufalte position if they nomina ted a war candidate. This must have been an unexpected holt from what our neighbor regarded as a clear democratic sky, aud lie frankly says in liis next issue: If there are men in Congress holding those views, we are glad to have them avow them, that the people may understand who they are. If Mr. Long was correctly reported he sub stantially foot ground for disunion—a posi tion which no right miiulrd patriot cun as sume. it may be, however, lliat bis remarks were not fairly reported. If it should turn out that Mr. Long was correctly reported, and is thus proved to be a disunionist and no patriot, we trust the editor of the Argus will betray no weakness by apologising for him, or by complaining of the effort promptly made by the majority of the House to eject him from the seat which he dis graced. But what will our neighbor say to the remarks of other members of the Demo cratic household, when the resolution for the expulsion of Mr. Long was pending? In the Congressional report as given in the columns of the Argus, we find that Mr. Harris, of Md., endorsed ecerg senti ment uttered by Mr. Long, lie would stand by him for weal or woe. If there was any honesty in the Democratic party they would rise like a hurricane and sweep away those who are preying upon the very vitals of the republic. He (Harris) was not in favor of recognizing tlm Southern Confederacy, hut of acquiescing in secession. This Mr. Harris, now misrepresenting a Union constituency as the vote of his Dis trict the other day plainly shows, is not only a Democrat, hat a leader of the Democratic party, and it is but a few months since the Argus exulted over his election as a victory of the Democracy over Radicalism; and yet he goes beyond those who would recognize the Southern Confederacy. That would not he enough for him; simple recognition might he wrung from us, Irom our sheer inability to subdue rebellion ami to restore the authority of the national government over the revolted states. This would not suit the purposes of democratic Mr. Harris. He would *‘acquiesce in secessionhe would admit the principle; acknowledge that South Carolina was right from the start, and thus endorse an idea 111 at would convert our national Union into a rope of sand, and leave wide open the door for any state to secede that may hereafter wisli to follow the examples of secession with which the civilized wot Id has been recently favored. But Mr. Long and Mr. Harris do not stand alone. Another illustrious representative Democrat has shown his hand,and become one of the trio iu infamy of which Ohio aud Mar} Mipyppft sinfinsgimp&T&sn&v*. ■ land Democracy furnish the other member*. We refer to Mr. Fernaudo Wood, a man not uukuown to the editor of the Argus; the man with whom our neighbor walked the streets, hob-nobbed, and dined last summer, when he was in this city on his way to the Provinces. The Congressional report proceeds: Fernando Wood said Mr. Long had declared in his speech thrs he would preler recognition rather than that the people of the South should be subjugated and exterminated, and be (Wood) endorsed this, and they could expel him for it. ♦ Such is the ground taken by at least three Democratic Congressmen — leading men iu the party ; and no observing person can doubt that it is such men who are to shape the poli cy of the party and to control its action. Far be it from us to charge disloyalty upon the ran^and tile of the Democratic party. We I relieve the masses of that party are honest, though strangely misled, and wickedly de ceived. We insist, however, that os a party, as an organization, ax an instrument of polit ical power, the Democratic party is arrayed on the side of disunion aud “peace at any price.’’ It is to be used against and not for the country. It is controlled by wicked bad men—dangerous men — who are no better than Jeff. Davis; who tu-day|would join hands with Jell. Davis if the rebel chief would soil Ids hands by so doing. They have got the con trol of the party, aad they will, so sure as effects follow causes, drag the present loyal men iu the party down to their traitorous level, or those men must refuse to follow their lead, which can be done only by abandoning the organization. We do not say that the editor of the Argus is responsible for the treasonable proclivities of iris party leaders; we do not hold him re sponsible for the utterances of Messrs. Long, Harris and Wood, but we do say that, unless he washes his hands of all sympathy for them; unless he not only refuses to co-operate with them in any and all political action, but ac tually denounces them as disuniouists and no true patriots, he will prove that he isuot only indefeusably inconsistent, but that his lan guage, quoted above, is deceptive and conveys no true idea either of the sentiments of his head or of the feelings of his heart. Now we would plead with our contempo rary, in the spirit of old friendship, to come out like a mau and abandon and abjure an or ganization that is dragging him down to political perdition. As an old friend and fel low-soldier, who has fought side-by-side with him on many a severely contested political batllc-fleld, we urge him to escape the toils in which a traitorous party would entwiue him. Let him, by works and by words, prove tbe honesty of tbe language quoted above from his pen, and not by adulation with disunlonists and traitors,compel his friends to believe that bis disease is of tbe heart and not simply an hallucination of the brain. We shall watch our quondam brother's course with a great deal of solicitude; not that his action can change the issue of eveuts by a single hair’s breadth, but because we would see him redeemed from destruction, and have him wield his graceful pen in defense of bis country and its honor, the Union and its integrity, leaving the Advertiser alone in onr city to work out the copjicrliead mission, to “die the death,” to rot and he forgotten. Come, brother, now is the accepted time. De lays arc daugerous. Procrastination may he death. To-day only has hope of salvation. Remember, and he encouraged by the reflec tion, that 11 While the tamp holds out to burn, Toe rankest rebel may return.” Letter from the State Capital. Augusta, April 12,1864.

BY TELEGRAPH -TO TVS EVENING PAPERS. --- During Attempt to Deetroy the Frigate Min~ nreotu. New York, April 12. The Herald’s Fortress Monroe letter reports a most daring attempt to destroy, on Satur day morning, the frigate Minnesota. An ap parautly floating spar approached her, and getting near was ascertained to be a boat with three men in it. The lookout warned them off, but they pushed boldly for the frigate. In a few moments an explosion occurred similar to that of twenty cannon. The vessel shook as if with paralysis, and the crew tumbled out of their berths. When the confusion subsid ed orders were given to pursue the daring re bels, but the Admiral’s dispatch tug, which was lying alongside, did not have steam up. The other tugs on picket were too far out to be of any use, and the marauders rapidly dis appeared in oue of the creeks abounding in the James river. The damage to the frigate was very trifling and has been repaired. The commander of the tug was put under arrest for not keeping steam up. Hehrl Steamer Itnrued. N'kw York, April 12. The Times has a letter from the U. S. steam er Arkansas, at New Orleans 2d inst, report ing the destruction of the rebel steamer Clif ton, formerly a U. S. gunboat, while attempt ing to run the blockade off Sabine l'ass, on the night of the 21st. ult. She got aground on the bar and the rebels had to burn her to prevent her falling into our hands. She had TOO bales of cotton on board. A large side wheel steamer, with a cargo for the rebel goverinent, lately run into the port of Valaseo. after having been driven off from Galvestou by our fleet. She ran ashore in the bay, but subsequently got off and run into port. Deserters report that she has been load ed wilh 1100 bales of cotton and Is now wait ing for a chance to run out. Death ok Wm. D. Ticknor.—The numer ous readers of the Atlantic Monthly will learn with deep regret of the death of William D. Ticknor, the senior member of the publishing house of Ticknor & Fields. His disease was congestion of the lungs. Mr. Ticknor left Boston a few days ago, in good health, for the purpose of accompanying his friend, Mr. Na thaniel Hawthorne, who was ill, ou a short tour, and the news of his death has struck his menus wuu surprise as wen as griei. Jir. Ticknor was widely known and esteemed as an energetic, enterprising, intelligent and in defatigable man of busiuess, of high honor and integrity, and his place in busiuess circles will be sadly missed. lie was S3 years of age and a native of Lebanon, N. II. A Fact.—In the warrant for town meet ing in a neighboring town, a few weeks since, one of the articles was to sec if the town would authorize the erection of a Hag-stall'. One old copperhead patriarch, on the day of the meeting, was heard to ask his friend what kind of a Hag it was proposed to display up on the staff. “The stars aud stripes, of course,” replied the friend. “1 thought so,” said the old shellback, “I knew it was some d—d Black Republican project !’’ aar-Thc Saco Democrat says Mr. Win. IIorrobiu, of Biddeford, died very suddenly on Saturday evening last. lie had been down town, and returning home, fell dead as he stepped into the entry of his house. His age was about fifty years.
