Some reason left.--In the case of the schooner Crenshaw
, tried in the U. S. District Court, at New York, Daniel Lord
, an eminent lawyer, took the position that the schooner and the cargo could not be condemned as a prize, because Abe Lincoln
had usurped powers not belonging to him, in declaring war without authority of Congress.
This reveals two facts — that there is some reason left in the North
, and that there must be many who coincide with Mr. Lord
, else he would not be allowed to utter such wholesome truths.--N. O. True Delta, Aug
