le battle is at hand between the 400,000 troops on the banks of the Potomac--200,000 on either side — a battle which will be greater than that of Waterloo, and will probably be decisive against the party which loses it. The mighty results depending on it will involve the destiny of the people of this continent, and perhaps of modern civilization. If there should be a partial defeat of the Federal army, let the abolition leaders who instigated the rebellion and the war — Phillips, Garrison, Greeley, Beecher, Cheever, Tapper, Joy, and their associates — look out for another country, as this will be too hot to hold them. If there should be a total defeat of the Federal army, together with the capture of Washington, let the anti-slavery demagogues, who for the last thirty years have been stirring up the embers of strife, which resulted in the Southern revolt, look out as fast as they can for some asylum beyond the limits of the American continent, for this is the only way in which they <
ntrolling public conviction of the necessity of submission to the alternative. What is that sentiment, and what the facts in which it originates? We find the best men of the North--those, at least, whom we have been in the habit of regarding as their best men — concurring in a common purpose with the worst, of upholding Lincoln's Government in all its measures, right, or wrong. Buchanan, Dallas, Cass Dickinson, Cushing, Richardson, Douglas, and Cadwalladervie with the Blairs, Seward, Greeley, Sherman, Weed, Grow, Sumner, and Hale, in giving their active support to the war, and in earnest exhortations for its vigorous prosecution on the most formidable scale. Indeed, the rank and file of their armies, so far as composed of native citizens, are composed three to one of the men who belonged before the war to the Democratic party, the party which took sides with the South in resisting, at the inception, the very measures which are now having their legitimate consummation. Wha
ds, if not by tens of thousands. A cry of mourning will arise from untold bereft families throughout the land, and whichever side may triumph, a pall will hang over the most glorious trophies of victory. No one will be at a loss to know who is responsible for so calamitous a state of things. Under the tutelage of an aristocracy, in Great Britain, jealous of the success of American institutions, the Garrisons, Tappans, and Leavitts of thirty years ago began these machinations which, under Greeley, Beecher, Raymond, Cheever, Wendell Phillips, and others, culminated in the creation of a party which denounced the Constitution as a "league with hell and a covenant with ceath," and never relaxed its incendiary efforts until the slaveholding States had been goaded into overt acts of treason. --Northern fanaticism, fostered by British gold, and the discontent and rebellion in the South which it engendered, are the sources of all of our evils, and both are still seeking, at the present hou
n of the Union. If it were a fact that we destroyed the Union, it would not require to be constantly asseverated. If it were the truth that the South struck the parricidal blows that destroyed the "national life," then Mr. Seward, Mr. Everett, Greeley, Bennett, Prentice, Wallach, and all the Northern tribe of spokesmen would not have to proclaim the fact every day in the year. But the truth is not so, and no amount of asseveration will make falsehood true. The South seceded from the Gov hers has been defensive, every battle has been fought upon her own soil, the Federal troops having in every case made the attack. Never was a charge so notoriously false, so basely libellous, as that of Seward, and Bennett, and Crittenden, and Greeley, that the South dissolved the Union. The work of dissolution had been going on for thirty years. Wendell Phillips commenced it in a garret in Boston in 1830, and since that day a vast horde of Northern parietes have been battering and bombardin

e most deadly, the most intolerant, the most hideously brutal enemy that the South has been called upon to encounter in this war. It is not only her money which has raised armies and navies for our subjugation, but her inhabitants, who first openly proclaimed their intention to have the head of every Southern rebel, and to defile every Southern hearth-stone. That she will meet that retribution her crimes deserve is as certain as any future event. It may be that the Confederate armies will never, as Greeley seems to apprehend, open their batteries upon the ingrate city; it may be that the constant object of their dread, a war with Great Britain, will never occur to sweep their commerce from the seas and burn their metropolis to the ground; but the Southern trade has gone forever, and neither by peace nor war can it ever be regained. Independent, we shall give our commerce to England, or, if subjugated, the staples of the South will disappear forever from the commerce of the world.
on fate with this foul and execrable race, so far from being the proudest their imagination could conceive, has become the most horrible that their most morbid antipathies can contemplate.--Rather than re-unite with the North, they would infinitely prefer to go back to the British allegiance and become loyal subjects of the British crown. Rather than be a part of a great continental Republic, controlled by a Puritan democracy, governed by such mounted banks and impostors as Seward, Sumner, Greeley, and those two offsprings of polluted beds, Lincoln and Fremont, they would prefer to make a voluntary tender of their liberties to some European monarch whose hereditary descent or dynastic merits should give him authority over his fellow-men. A great American Republic embracing the whole continent, imbued with the genius of the Constitution devised by Washington and reformed by Jefferson; and ruled by a spirit best described as being the opposite of every instinct of Puritanism; a Republ
mous demands. One portion of the agencies used by the clubs is the manufacture of public opinion by means of lectures in favor of their revolutionary views, and instilling them among the generals and subordinate officers of the army, in order to corrupt their minds, and render them disloyal to the government and the constitution. Washington has been specially selected for the purpose, and the Smithsonian Institute is prostituted to the treason. Already Brownson, Channing, Sumner, and Greeley have lectured, and the next, is to be Cheever, then Beecher, Curtis, and Wendell Phillips. Such are the dyed-in-the-wool abolition propagandists who, at the very seat of government, are tainting the army and its officers with their revolutionary ideas. New York money matters. The New York Herald, of the 9th inst., has the following: The upward movements in gold continue; most of the brokers quote it 4 per cent. premium. Exchange is also better; the best bills are held at 1
mortality and keeping himself serious and humble by having a skeleton displayed at this banquets, whilst one of his servants proclaimed, "Saladin, King of Kings, Saladin must die."-- We suggest that McClellan moderate his supreme elation at finding himself in command of the Grand Army, by procuring, if he can, the skeleton of one of the Yankee pedlars of the beginning of this century, and also the old cart in which he peddled his wooden clocks, tin wares and other notions, and getting Greeley, or Hale, to shout alone that this Yankee Doodle marched without Hindrance from Massachusetts to New Orleans, whilst the magnificent Generalissimo of the Grand Army cannot get twenty five miles South of Washington. Let Bennett observe by the light of these simple facts what a shocking blunder the North has made in attempting to get possession of the South by any other means than trade and traffic. If the North had stuck to that method of invasion, the whole South would have been in her p
the Southern volunteers will expire, and they have determined not to re- enlist. Their hopes are based upon the desertion by the South of its own cause, and on the conviction that the men whom they cannot defeat in battle, by their refusal to reenlist will defeat themselves. The Herald, it must be admitted, has often thrown light upon the real designs and expectations of the Federal Government, and, as a Federal organ, seems altogether to have cast the Tribunes into the shade. This must be a horrible pill for Greeley to swallow, but it is none the less certain and inevitable. Bennett, who, at the beginning of the war was mobbed for disloyalty, has now elbowed his way to the head of the faithful, and reads lectures to the Tribune upon patriotism and fidelity, with a front of grave and complacent virtue that is edifying to behold. The knave has thrust the fanatic to the wall, and is now, as he should be, the court journal of the meanest and most rascally despotism under the sun.
