Ex-Governor Seymour, of Connecticut, deprecating a war of subjugation, is worthy of that able statesman and estimable gentleman. He has maintained a consistent position during the war, and will be in after times remembered as one of the very few men at the North who had the reason, humanity and courage to object to the character and purposes of the atrocious crusade against the South. We gave an extract from his letter yesterday, and now reprint the following notable passage: ‘ "The monstrous fallacy of the present day, that the Union can be re-established by destroying any part of the South, is one which will burst with the shells that are thrown into its defenceless cities, and leave the condition of this country, after its treasures are exhausted, and its brave men on both sides consigned to hospitals and graves, a spectacle for reproach or commiseration of the civilized world." ’
