Their Real object.

The Pennsylvania Daily Telegraph, in reply to the Patriot and Union, of that State, says:

‘ Is it not rather late in the day, then, for the Patriot and Union to talk of sectional feeling — and is it not a false piety which denominates that as "atrocious" which seeks the Crushing of Slavery Forever on the Ramparts Itself has Erected for the Destruction of liberty? "Are we going to war for the purpose of maintaining the Government?" Yes, Mr. Patriot. ‘"Or is it merely an undertaking to crush slavery forever?"’ This Government, it is now plainly understood among all its friends, cannot be restored and firmly fixed on its old foundations unless the institution of slavery is shorn of the prestige accorded to it by such Northern advocates as the Patriot and Union, and therefore it would be folly for the people of the free States to engage in a conflict which had not for its end some object of this description.
