The Cabinet.

The construction of Lincoln's Cabinet is enough to open the eyes of the most credulous. Not a member of the Conservative Union party in it! Chash, the ferocious political brigand, whose blunder bus is pointed at the heart of the South, divides in the Inaugural the honors with Seward, the midnight assassin. Both are in the Cabinet, and all have been unanimously confirmed, except the two Republicans who happened to be born in slave States, a crime unpardonable in the eyes of a portion of the Senate.

And still we have the syren cry of peace, peace, while already the clanking of our chains comes on every Northern breeze.
