Without War.

--The Albany Argus says: ‘We repeat, if disunion must come, let it come without war. Peaceable separation is a great calamity, but dissolution with the superadded horrors of internal war, including the ruin of business, the destruction of property, oppressive debt, grinding taxation, and sacrifice of millions of lives, is a scourge from which let us pray that a merciful Providence may protect us.’
