Charles Congdon, Tribune Essays: Leading Articles Contributing to the New York Tribune from 1857 to 1863. (ed. Horace Greeley), Mr. B. Wood's Utopia. (search)
Mr. B. Wood's Utopia. Ben Wood's speech that was not spoken, has, of course, been printed by him, just as the play-wrights of the last century, when managers were inexorable, exclaimed: Zounds, I'll print it. It is in this way that Brother Ben, when not permitted to bore the House, with malice prepense, attempts to bore the nBen Wood's speech that was not spoken, has, of course, been printed by him, just as the play-wrights of the last century, when managers were inexorable, exclaimed: Zounds, I'll print it. It is in this way that Brother Ben, when not permitted to bore the House, with malice prepense, attempts to bore the nation. We have read, at least a part of the document — that part in which the tender Benjamin assures us that were he certain that, in a military sense, this war would prove successful, nevertheless he would oppose it, for with the resisting power of the South would vanish every hope of their existence as equal and contented membt with according to law. This will finish the matter neatly, and it will be finished quite as neatly, though not quite so pleasantly, if we are worsted. But Mr. Ben Wood's peace would settle nothing. Instead of the Felicitous Family of his dulcet dreams — rats, mice, rabbits, and terriers in one cage — we should only go back t<

ghtful and charming incident in our cheerless prison experience. One of the ladies came to my bed, spoke of her friendship for Mrs. Professor LeConte, of Athens, Georgia, and gave me some nice fruit. She also gave me hastily a recent number of Ben Wood's excellent Democratic paper, the New York News. This is a real treat, as Ben Wood is a Rebel sympathizer, and tells the plain truth about the Yankee defeats. His paper is forbidden in prison, lest the prisoners should gather some crumbs of coBen Wood is a Rebel sympathizer, and tells the plain truth about the Yankee defeats. His paper is forbidden in prison, lest the prisoners should gather some crumbs of comfort and items of truth from its bold utterances. After reading it, it was passed from couch to couch, and read with great eagerness. These sweet, gentle hearted women, with their winning smiles and cheerful words, proved well springs of joy to us, and brought to mind tender thoughts of our homes and loved ones. Their coming was like a fairy visitation to the sick, wounded and mentally distressed soldiers, lying on their weary couches of pain. May God bless and protect them, and may the nob
the nearness of the Union army. He believes the enemy will fight desperately before giving up Richmond. The "On to Richmond" fever runs higher each day. Hon. Ben Wood's speech. A New York letter to a Philadelphia paper says: It there is any Congressional Committee engaged in investigating Ben Wood's loyalty, pleaseBen Wood's loyalty, please say to them that in the judgment of Ben's constituents — the people who ought to know him best — they are engaged in a work of supererogation. The publication of his recent (unuttered) peace speech in the Richmond journals, is considered conclusive proof of the man's disloyalty; not taking into account at all the editorial puff York but himself, and respectfully requesting him to resign. Months ago some such meeting came very near being held, but it was hushed up, at the time by some of Wood's personal friends; but the publication of his speech in the Richmond papers is more than our people will stand without a loud public protest.

dy been mentioned in connection with nominations for the next Congress.--Their friends seem to think that they would be of more service to the country in the halls of Congress than on the battle-field; but the Generals themselves will have something to say in the matter, and will not suffer themselves, against their inclinations, to be forced into the sea of politics. General Sickles, it is said, has been offered the Congressional nomination from the Fourth District of this city, where Ben Wood is again a candidate. Some of the friends of General Corcoran are anxious that he should permit himself to be nominated for the Fifth District. It is doubtful, however, that the General will consent to this arrangement, as his tastes and inclinations are well known to be intensely military. Fernando Wood is a candidate in the same district, and should the General decide to run against the ex-Mayor the contest would be most interesting. General John Cochrane has already been put

tions, and unjust, arbitrary proceedings of the party in power. Seymour was elected not to cause an inglorious peace, but to secure a successful prosecution of the war. The Abolition faction had misled the Administration, and therefore was rebuked, and good results have followed. But while the Abolition radicals have been somewhat tamed, and brought to reason and common sense, the boisterous Democratic copperheads seem to have lost their wits entirely. Vallandigham and Pendleton, Brooks, Ben Wood, and others, urge a prosecution of the war not against Jeff Davis, but against Abraham Lincoln. They preach peace on any terms, and outrageously advocate recognition of the Confederacy as the best way to restore the Union. They prate about the "Constitution as it is," while they demand a new one, in order to conciliate a gigantic armed conspiracy, which scorns all their peace offerings. They noisily advise the degradation of the loyal States to any peace the rebellion may require. They

o eat; but they undauntedly tolled on, and, by their skill and unremitting labor, saved the vessel. The peace party of the North. Below we give some extracts from a speech of some length and of no ordinary power and boldness, written by Ben Wood, and, by content, published in the Congressional Globs. The fact that such a speech can be calculated in the United States and such editorials be published as those from which we have published extracts, can now be spoken and written with impunity, and their authors go unpunished, evidences a marked and important change, favorable to us, in public opinion, and in the policy of the Government. Among other things, Mr. Wood said: It is habitual to throw the weight of responsibility for our impotence upon the Administration and its Generals. Imbecility and iceman potence have indeed, been sufficient and conspicuous but not to these do I attribute the failure, the alter, unequivocal, and irredeemable failure of our enterprise of con
gs of the Democratic organization met at the St. Nicholas Hotel, New York, on Monday, and organized by electing Aaron Ward President. Among the Douglas delegates were Thomas M. Lanahan, of Baltimore; August Belmont of New York; Thomas Cottman, of Louisiana, and Senator McDougall, of California. The Breckinridge faction included among others C. S. Stansbury, of Maryland; T. B. Florence, of Pennsylvania, and Augustus Schell, of New York. Prominent among the invited guests were Fernando and Ben Wood, Captain Rynders, Dean Richmond, James Brooks, and John McKcon. Washington and Philadelphia were suggested as places of holding a National Democratic Convention, but the resolution was finally withdrawn, when the Convention, by general consent, agreed that the two committees should meet at some time and place for the meeting of the Democratic National Convention, and that they be requested to invite persons of all parties to participate in nominating some conservative man for President, af
