War upon women.

--The barbarous treatment of Mrs. Greenhow by the Lincoln Government, treatment that has nearly driven her insane, is but one illustration of the brutal ferocity with which the Lincoln despotism carries on this infernal war. No wonder that all the civilized nations of the earth cry out ‘"Shams! Shame!"’ And these atrocities are perpetrated by a nation which complacently exalts itself as the pink of piety, and which Mr. Seward describes with his usual reverence for truth as ‘"a Christian and humane people."’
