eat constitutional rights on which our freedom rests, are being violated, and unless an immediate check be placed upon these usurpations no remnant of our once free government will remain to us. The following is an extract from a letter from Maine, to the editors of the New York Journal of Commerce: Bangor, Aug. 10--Messrs. Editors: A great reaction in public sentiment is now rolling over the State of Maine. In almost every county, town and hamlet the people, in their Conventions anState of Maine. In almost every county, town and hamlet the people, in their Conventions and primary meetings, are deploring the unhappy state of the country, and demanding a peace policy. Not a cringing dishonorable peace, but one based upon principles of mutual forbearance and compromise. The Republican party has become so emphatically committed to a war policy, that in their view, the slightest deviation from that course is political death. In this they are correct. They have nearly run their race, and must shortly pass away, to be remembered only for the mischief and miser
the Government now, when it has been assured of all the millions of money that it required. Col. Jameson, of the Second Maine Regiment, which, under his lead, behaved so handsomely at the battle of Bull Run, has resigned his commission. The Maine delegation had recommended his promotion to a Brigadier-Generalship, but the Governor of Maine, Mr. Washburne, interfered in behalf of Major Prince, who is to have the appointment. Hence Col. Jameson's resignation. The business of the PatenMaine, Mr. Washburne, interfered in behalf of Major Prince, who is to have the appointment. Hence Col. Jameson's resignation. The business of the Patent Office continues so to fall off that the commissioners contemplate a reduction of the pay of the employees. Inventions for military or destructive purposes are very numerous. There are now a great number of applications for patents of that sort before the examiner, who is charged with that class of cases. The tenor of the news from the lower counties of Maryland confirms what was stated two or three days since in this correspondence, namely: that the Confederates are preparing a great
otatoes, and Marshal Pelissier, old General Hess and Count Todleben, mere farthing rushlights, to play the part of the Great Pacificator. He has been solicitous to have it understood that Mars is capable of being pacific and beneficent; that terrific and annihilating as Wingfield is, when fairly roused, yet the very consciousness of his awful powers of destructiveness makes him most reluctant to put them in exercise. Consequently, on various occasions, he has gone about the country, now to Maine and now to California, like an amiable lion, with an olive branch in his mouth, trying to induce people not to shed each other's gore. We have heard nothing of his exploits in this way since the present conflict commenced. He has not once sought to smooth the "wrinkled front of grim visaged war," since he discovered that pacific counsels would endanger his salary. Virginia is his mother, It is true, and she has loaded him with more laurels than he ever deserved; but, like a spoiled child,
