P-r-e-d-i-g-f-o-u-s !!! Old Bennety says: "We do not believe the Emperor of the French will take any step hostile or injurious to us, unless the English Government leads the way. Should England enter into any such dangerous career, she will rue the day that her rulers have committed her to a deadly struggle with this young giant Republic." The Lord have mercy upon us! England rue the day when she enters into a struggle with the "Bull Runners!" Possibly she might, if the question were of a quarter race or a race against time, for the English are a plethoric generation. But they have innumerable packs of greyhounds, and though they may not get near enough to shoot a Yankee, they can catch any number of prisoners with these animals. Let not Bennett trust too much to Yankee fleetness. Let him not be led astray by the pedestrian feats of Ball Run.
ng, a free and independent people, and when separated from the poisonous influences of Northern abolitionism, we hope and expect to do more than we have ever done for the temporal and spiritual elevation of the race over whom God, in His all-wise providence, has placed us. Imbecility of Lincoln's Cabinet. Thurlow Weed, of the Albany Evening Journal, lately published an editorial in which he gave the Cabinet a severe castigation for its want of vigor in the prosecution of the war. Sawney Bennett is delighted with the article, endorses every word of it, and hugs the savage Thurlow to his bosom in a loving embrace. Says the Herald: The imbecility and incompetency of a portion of the present Cabinet have for a long time awakened the serious apprehensions of many of the leading men of the country.--They have felt the loss of millions upon millions through the inefficiency of the blockade, and the fact that with the exception of the short and brilliant campaign of General McCl
is purpose to respect the Constitution and the supreme laws of the land, including the decisions of the Supreme Court, which gave slaveholders equal rights with non-slaveholders in the Territories; as he even swore by a solemn oath at the time of his inauguration to carry them into execution, what further "coming out" can the Bishop-General require? [We should infer, from the particular pains taken in the concluding sentence of the above paragraph to answer Gen. Polk's request, that Sawney Bennett is about as anxious for a cessation of hostilities as any one.--Eds Dis.] It is worthy of remark, that while the rebel President is jubilant over a succession of glorious victories at Bethel, Bull Run, Manassas, Springfield, Lexington, Leesburg and Belmont, he takes good care to make no mention of the defeats in Western Virginia, the recent subjection of two counties in Eastern Virginia, the defeat of his arms at Fort Hatteras, North Carolina, and at Port Royal, South Carolina, the
The Daily Dispatch: January 9, 1864., [Electronic resource], The unanimous election of General Grant. (search)
The unanimous election of General Grant. Under the above caption the New York Heralds of the 31st December, has an editorial of a column and a half in length, in which Sawney Bennett, spreads himself for Unconditional Surrender' Grant, having forgotten in the brief space of one or two months that such a man as Gen. McClellan ever existed. We make room for the following extracts: Northern men have made many sacrifices for the Union during this war. They have devoted themselves, their lives, their sons, and their money, to the cause of their country. Now we ask them to make one sacrifice more. It will be the last, and the most effectual, and the most successful. We ask them to sacrifice their political ambition. We desire them to unite upon a single Presidential candidate. We appeal to them to secure the unanimous election of Major Gen. Grant. We make this appeal not so much to the people as to the professional politicians. We know that the majority of the people a
dle and the grave to make up an army. All this is very witty, and very severe, no doubt; but wit and sarcasm are not useful in the capture of cities; and that is what is required of General Grant just at this moment. His friend and admirer, Sawney Bennett, said, when General Johnston retreated from Manassas, that his whole force did not amount to one thousand men. And yet that same force hunted his sometime favorite, McClellan, like a deer, all around this city, and left him panting and description as he gives of them, he can claim no great credit for his success. On the other hand, if they should beat him, (and whatever he may think, we can assure him that every Confederate believes he will be beaten,) the disgrace will be dreadful beyond all example. At any rate, however, we shall expect him, when he shall have found himself beaten again, not to contradict himself and lie like Bennett, or Stanton, or himself, saying that these troops are flower of the Confederate forces.
