Scarcely a iy thing hu been more ofleusiv to a clast of so-called Democrats than th “Dr *li," the conscription of American citizens, and tbs forcing of them to bear arms in thi army whether willing or otherwise; to beat arms perhaps against their “erriug brothers" in the South of kindred political faith, and en gaged, as some democrats base atrenously milntained, In flgh’iag for their cherisber rights. Scarcely a political meeting of the democratic party baa been held for the las two years or more, that the draft has not been denounced as an unlaw.ul, unjust, op pressive sod uncoustiiulioual interference with the rightful prerogatives of Americai ci.lzius. Companies have been organized t< resist It by force, and threats ofa most omin ons character have been uttered against ibh alleged despotic mode of compelling mon to defend their country’s flag. We all remember the howl of indignation with which democratic journals met the cou ectipiion, although they had themselves clam ored lor it, more than a year. It was denounc ed at lyraunlcal, unjust, un-American,barbar ous and disgraceful, with so much vehement that In New York a formidable riot was aroused ugsiuat It, which mob cheered for Jt. ferton Davis. Now are our Democratic friends, who hav< so vehein'eutly denounced the draft, but wh ere throwing up their cape for McClellan, aware thar their standard bearer was the very first of our prlucipal military offi :ers to pro pose tbe resort to a draft t We will refresl their memories. Iu August of 1801—just a month after the btitle of Bull Kuu—when volunteers wer pouring into Washington by regimenta am brigtde-, he wrote to the President as fol lows: “Washington, August 20, 1801. “Sir: I have just received the enclose dl p.».ch iu cipher.

McClellan sa ► “it u tJke only successful pitta,'’ that it ahou c be "posi Ive aud unconditional,” while tl t G meryl himself recomm ;uiL that it “be mate at once I” But there has been ooe act of the Goveri • mint even mure offensive to good copperhes< D.nnocrau than the draft. We allude to “ai bltrary arrests.” Was not the patriot Vallat. dLham arrested, tried, sentenced and set t S >utb, among his friends ? la not his the oi - ly case ou record of a traitor “going to b a own place” aud not slaying there? Anu haven’t some of the democratic patriots near • r home been accomodated with lodgings ii Fort L Payette ? Has Boh. Elliot been I6r gotten, or the Yarmouth martyr been suflereu to die out of memory? Impossible. But are the opponents of arbitrary arreilu, who now shout for McClellan, aware that the most high handed, wholesale, arbitrary, and exorbitant of all acts of th a kind—the ten ure aud imprisonment of the entire legisla ture of a stale—of the sovereign state ol Maryland, was ordered and to a certain extern execu ed by General McClellan ? Banks wm at that lima |u command at Baltimore, and at It was suspected that the members of the leg islature might take measures to carry the stab out of the Huioa into the Coufederacy Me Cleilau wrote la this wise: 11 ooSJenUal ) HKAT*JtT»MT US AkmtPotovic ) Washington, Sept 1 j, igei. { “Mai. hs.< .s »*. das as, 0.3 a —Vj* n era!: Aber a full cousuliauou with the l’ies ldeuf, Secretaries of State, War 4c., it hi beeu de bled to effect the op< raiiou propose, lor tUe 17ih.

With the highest regards, I am, my dear General, your sincere friend, Geo. B. McClellan, Major-Gen. U.S. A.” This was, It must be confessed, a pretty summary and effective way of dealing with state rights, sad McClellan went into It with a gusto. It cannot bo said that he wu merely carrying out the orders of bis superior* 'or he appears to have suggested the plan him aeK, merely “consulting” the President about U, and landing it bis warm and earnest ap proval. His iaxiety to get It done with com plete sacoess, end the importance he aserlhee to that success, says the Evening Post, show Jiat his co-operation was more than wil ing; it was zealous. He seizes those suspected legislators—these representative* of a free, independent slate-which was not at war with the nation, wi;h as much avidity as a log catches at a bone. He jugged them ail it a swoop, and there was an end of the mat ter. Mr. Liucoln's seizure of a poor unof fending editor here and there, or of a pecu lating contractor now and then, is a pitiful .roceiing beside this nabbing of an entire legislative body. Cromwell's dispersion of lie Long Parliament has become historical; t has been both paioted and sung; but it was i tame affair compared with McClellan's nethod of getting rid of the Marylaud Par i ament. His “democialic" admirers, especi slly those who are champions of state rights, would do well to put the scene upon their ransparancics and banners. It would mas*" m extremely picturesque aud effective cm •>lem of political consineucy. Opportunities Forever Lost. “There to s tide in the slsirs m*n Whieu, Uhea st the Hood. •*** <*" to fortune " Gen. George 13. Met’lellau-we suppose we uuat call him General, for he still holds on to ,u commission—has, like many other men reater by ftr tbau he is, lost a golden oppof juky to establish a.name and reputation ou j , .olid basis which no assaults of traitors or ; aunagogue* could havu shaken. Tula tide >n us affairs was at its flsod wuen he was uomi iated for the Presidency atCbicago aud placed j ipon a deceptive aud rickety plallorm by s j nod oi political jugglers, broken-down polili nans, heartless demagogues and quati traitors j Wo have never known in the political his ory ol this or any other couutry, nor in tin ecords of any political organization the world <Ver. a baser attempt at political j igglery, a 1 ronger effort to deceive the people ,and a wore letei mined and corrupt purpose to secure . rotes under false pretences lUau were uilut es led at the recent Chicago cooveulion. : Some of these platlorm makers must have been -.roubied with ibe “doldrums,” a disease which the celebrated and witty Irish orator, Curran, j •nee deflued as Ja confusion iu the head ai i>ing Irom the corruption of the heart.” To ifttrrow a term Irom geology, this Cbica go platform may be characterised as a/ornt 1 f on with different strata or layers, one upon another,all so carefully arrauged and bestow al that the makers were flattered with the be lief that the people would not be able to see t te incongruous nature of the materials that 3 imposed iu In that they are sadly at fault. The people of this country and of this eniighl med age are not so easily bookwinked and leceived as politicians are faiu to believe they ire. There may be eras in bumtu life in which he craft of a conspirator can lake the place if a statesman or a patriot, but we dout live a one of those eras now, as all copperheads vill find to tbelr sorrow and regret. Victor Hugo says “The characteristic cf eveiie is to gain at darkness so intently that t brings light out of it.” But the loyal men md women of our country need not such a icculiar state of mind to bring light out of the Isrkuess of this platform, or to comprehend ts true lutent and meaning. Goethe rein irk s I that Shakespeare’s Hamlet was intended o represent the effects of a great action laid upon a soul unfit for the performance of it. So ve may say of these plaiform-aiikers, there vasa great burden laid upon souls totally un it to bear It, and h°nce Its failure to accom plish the thing whereto it was sent. It required great tact, skill and canning to -onstrucl such a platlorm, aud the miking hereof, no doubt, greatly troubled the butld sri; but to no person in these Uuited States ns it beenso much trouble and perplexity is to him who was compelled to uiouut it aud •how himself to the American people. The mauuerof McClellan's mounting this at isaic platform reminds us of his military t cues, aud the mode in which he has always a iproached rebel inlreuehmeuu aud foriilica t ous. Fust, there is a spteudid military pir a le, aud secoud, a bold marchiug as if the strong holds ol the enemy were about to be -torrned and toppled down, aud tubd, a dead tilt at a safe distance from rebel shots or s mils. Xow the spades aud pickaxes are In • oil play, eiioti regular siege, lecttiulum artiin. is commenced. D.ggiug aud leui-pitchiug ire the order of the day. l'arallells aud zig zigs are auuk iu the earth aud, by St. Faul, the w >rk goes bravely on! After weeks, and som -limes months, of we iry labor, the soldiers are ordered from the t eucbea, the noble General appi are on hi p iwlug steed, witching tbe world with U • a rrsemauship, and fearing no dangers, for the memy had gone, bag and baggage, and the -birpsbooters had cons dowu from their orkouts. Thus several sieges, planned by AcClellan, have ended wi b notuijg gained b it many important victories lost. In a manner somewhat similar, so far as cir umslances would admit, McClellan approach d the Chicago platform. I, was a lormidable rork, and be viewed it as such. He was alraid > take it by storm, but for several days alter i s rection, he began to dig parallels and zig z igs, tad employed Gov. Seymour and some other Vew Turk politicians as a corps of miners and appert to assist him In the work, la fact they -——- —— »w. t .vw®. auuMiug u«>w nucb be needed them in such au euiurgeucv, tieycame cheer lull y to tbe rescue and held • weet council with him. Seymour knows the teak places iu the structure, for he had a hand n making It; therefore Ms advice could uot b swell dispensed with. Many modes of at Uck were di-cussed, many plans concocted, ind much lime used iu consultation ere an ail • ance was made. Little Mac, although a sci j sntiflc engineer and knows something alioui ! ailroads, was exceedingly cautious how he idvauced, and very anxious to approach under 1 cover to as not to be killed or wounded. Sey- j oour told him he niu-t mount It, or, at least, j >eens to mount it, or those who erected it would ! ■>ult. It was agreed among those those who , sat in council that Little Mac should climb up m tome way and stand upon the outer edg-, wave a flag and mike the best show he could inder all the circumstances of tbe case. lie lid mount aud reach the “outer wall”, and ■here he stands flourishing before the nation a white dig loonehiodand theaters andstiipis in the o her, virtually saying to the voters. “Here's a flag of truce” which means an armis tice, or “imnidiate eff iris for a cessation ol loetllilies” so at to give the rebels a chance to ricruit thair energies for “a more vigorous W weeution of tbe war”again,t the gove-i. oent, or to come back into tbe Unio i wiib their millions of slaves amf again control our ittioui affairs and push slavery iuto all th* J'"****' ' Atul 1 ho'd in my other band the old Union flag which is intended to flatter the war I lemocrats and secure their votes.” Thu, stands Llule Mac before tbe nation -Sever wa, a candidate of a great political par ty presented to tbs voters of any country whose principles hang to loosely „bou him, or whoae policy is to lud,-Unite au , so little known, and yet those who have emu jailed this candidate to dim i up to such a platform and staui there in such »n united have the unblushing impudence to tell the p80’ P1* that lie will be elected. Such effrontery, 1 such&oahle dealing will never hoodwink ths loyal voters of the irce Stales, or put out tbe fires of patrons,,, vrlaleli are now burning so | brightly on the altars of the hearts of tbe peo 1 pie. y Now if George B. ncGlellaa ha!, aaid to j tQ6B6 platform [Qiiki'fi **r >ii . , . ,Icr,» 1 Hill never content j to aland on the Chicago platt,rul.

If McClellan had thus spoken to tb<w* cop perheads, he would have established a name rud a lame of which any man mig,lt ** Pr®ud. ^ But he has let this flood tide 1» his affairs pass, ! and a golden opportunity is tost forever.

It seems to us that the Gun Boat General has failed to use his reaper quite as much as any i one who has been at the head of the army.

At Antietam, also, where his friends claim that he ' saved the nation, no one will deny that, if be did not save the enemy, he certainly did not reap any great advantage from his victory.

Mr attentioo has bfen diree’ed to t “Card” in the Cornier of the 8th inst., bearing the signature of Warren Sparrow; alto oue signed John Neal. Truth and jtulle'j require some notice be t.kea of the above. Mr Sparrow did not (as M*-. Neal states) larrender the agene) of the N. Y. Lite at a great pecuniary saenflee; his agency of that company waa revoked for what we ej&tider a dishonorable trans act on. lie (Sparrow) says that after more thorough inves tigation o' later reports, he., be wawindoced to ac aept the a^eucy of the Mutual Benefit. Mr. Neal states hH discussion with Sparrow con vinced him of the superior advantages of the Mutu al Benefit. ▲re either of the above the tree reasons* Ua« Mr. Nea given the true reason why he allowed twenty years'busin •» to be tranefered from his hands to Mr sparrow's? Neither of those cover the groand. Mr. Sparrow has stead lastly contended for months atter his con troversy with Mr. Neal that it was a tiiumplf for the H. Y. i-ife. Why with his professed scruples con tinue to impress ibis iaot upon the public? Why so assiduously claiming everywhere the N. Y. Life to be second to uoojmpauy after being thui convinced? was he honest then,aud now? Mr. Neal’s artiole had no hing to do with It! this Mr. 8. knows. What does he mean by later reports of the Maas. andN Y Insurance Commis<t«norsT ilM*h« AoytbioiUiertbaaJta 1864? No! tor none have been iaued of later date by those commission ers. lias he not studied those reports carefully for the past live months prior to enterin., the empl »y of the Mu usl Beuefit? Luring that time, uot a day has l awed ii^ whic o he did not present th > S. Y. Life to to the business m n of Toitiaud as safe, reliable, and cheep as any company In tbe country. Is th*re any thing in the later reports *Q which ha re'ers, differ log ia auy degree to the former reports ot ta£* time oommi.'siuners, to the prejudice of the K. t. k ife as compared with the Mutual Benefit, or any other Co? la taot, does not the Mass. Ins. Com mit loners* report of 1864 shew the growth of the N. T. Li e to have l sen g eater, the past year, thsn any to. doing ha iness in tnat dta'e? Does not Mr. Sparrow know that the nett assets, to value of the N. Y. Lie, has largely iaoreased the past year, until it exceeds that ef the Mutual Bene fit over turee per cent.? lie ought to know it, and does. Ue knows tall well if h* Is competent for his ousiuts*. that so far (roes ihe last report of ei.ber of tbe above commissioners teiug in any way constru ed to the end he implie , it is quite to the contrary. It is not a little singular, that after jour years of exasmnaiiou and tabor for tbe K. Y. Life—ia con stant competition with the Mutual Beucflt. and put lie e >ntroversy with its agent, cmlad each day to elo«e Investigation of the merits oleach Co—that be shculd remain firm nod decided in his convict-on', ia regard to the former, uutil the General Agent of the latter approaches with the proposition to trans fer iweuty years’ business of Mr. Keal, te his hands, if he wiil advoeate tbe Mutnsl Benefit. Thus in one night, all the investigatione of years vanish —admitting all he has said heretofore tor years antrue. Ihe arguments of Mr. Neal which the day before were mere sophistry, be earns a tower of logic, not to be o’erturned. Twelve months hence, should auy other Co. offer inducements,may he uot flud ttosno lattr report which wiil require a denial of all he to-day states in re gard to the Mutual Benefit? If four years of investi gation resulted In so completely deceiving him, how long wi.l it require to properly enlighten him? The nh le matter is too transparent tedeceivoany sensible s ersou. Its a question of dollars and cants. i admit his right to a ail himself of any such ad vantage. but let him bemaaly, and henorab.e as well as truthfu . UU Um mmm mm .. <k. mmmmr>mm V* assigns.

Life, not ot 9 A3 per cent as he states,showing again his error; thus J might juss through the items. A word of (.xp.anatiou on this excess of expenses. Every person at all familiar with LUe Insurance, and Mr. hparrow in particular, (for this point he has explained a thousand time ) knows that the exp*n># ot new business to a Co le lrom three to four times greater than thuiucured oa the old. or. that every new policy Lsued, cost the Co's from three ta four times as much the first year, as in sub.equent years. As a result, a Co that is doing a large new business, mast iLcreatu its expanses; this tbe N. Y. Life has done—and is justified in so doing, every policy hold er beiog beuefitel by that new business, (dee Ins vvui. 1 guiM •> 1 he profits el lull outlay will be felt the pres* ml and in future>ears dome Co’e reach aa high as 10 per cent, aud geod CVa ereu higher; the only question is has it been judicioualy expended. Look at the of ficial report: K. Y. Lite issued in 1S3S. 4077 new policies. Mut’l Usui’t, 147 do. An excess ot 1»J in lavor of the N. Y. Life. Tula tact is answer to thequery, whether or no this dif ference has been Judiciously expended. Ou the point of dividends, I have but Ijftle tosa**, remarking the N Y. Life dec arcd IS per «:uL the last year, aud could have largely increased the same had they do .rued it wise so to do; in the prosent con* dit on cf ;h ags they thought e conservative course wisest, In this the> fiud tbs endorsement of M. Y. Commissioners Stjrs Mr. Barnes, gupt. ef Ins Dep. of N Y , iu his last repo:l, ‘The disposition te cc clare exoe^sive dividends, especially with our no‘e co’e. is audoubtedly a growing evil with Life Ins." The Mutual Benefit is a note Co. le is the N. Y. Lite, the former being more so, taking note tor SO per cent, the latUr accepting but 40 per cent. The hi. Y. I-iie has dene a Issuing business for years, aud th s they have uone without falling lato tie evil to which Mr. Berne* refers, of excessive div idend*. Its Ti arises are boats, and capable men, kuown to bcsucu by tut. y husiue-s mju gf Portland; they have never sought to swell their dividends, in order to procure uew business, but to give to lie po icy holders ail that any Co eaa give iheu», con sistent With ample security aud equity; oa this ba sis they have done this issuing bus nets. ta>s Mr. sparrow in bis advertisement of |>ec fail, "Ibe ntvr l»«sin*st of the N. k. Life Iu the year nearly qua cd the combined business oi auy two Compan ies iu the United States." We are ooutent thus to rsmaiu. Mr. Sparrow ttat s it will cost 9TJ12 less oa S100 premium in the Mutual Bsucfit thxn in the N Y. Liie. Not knowing the plan npoa whkb he base# his.flguies. I cannot examine Its details to show its illusion as xneh I* Is. Does hoc aim thelo ses will average more with the N I Life than the Mutual Benefit or any other Cp.f U ad Iris public statement a short tius siuee, ‘The m rtaLty among it* (N. Y. Life) members has been pr poriimailp lest than that of any other Life Ins. Co. iu Amer.ea." Devs the N. Y Life do less new business* 1fthas told you it do* s more. De they rco ive le-s for that bus toots? He tel.'s us 'hey retain more {s their busioexswell mauagtd* He replies ycat So thinfc the in*. Coiumitsioners of N. Y. and Mass. Why then is it not as safe, reliable and ebsep as the Mu tual Bent fit or auy other Co. The truth is Mr. Spar row finds it for his advantage, lor reasons given, te operate for the Mutual Benefit, hoping te retain . both Cos. Finding his agency of the N. Y. Life re voked. he issues this Card to create dissatisfaction in the minds of its policy holders, trusting to gain some and procure double commission upon the same par ties: thus seeking to undo the work the II. Y, Life has paid him for. This Is his code ef hot or. J leave him to his owu reflections and the judgment of hon srablebusiness men. lu this statement no disospect to the Mutual Ben e9t Life Ins. Co. i* designed or Intended. The N Y. Life can rise without attempting to drag others down. With this statement of (acts, having lees ambition to figure in priut, I leave for good the agent of the Mutual Benefit, hoplrg when ho feet* sailed upon to Issue another Card it will bo more ac curate than hie tost.
