Letter from Hon. John M. Botts. The following letter was read at the dinner given by the New England Society of New York, on the 22d inst., in response to this sentiment: 4 The American Union--the great trust which we hold for succeeding ages. The love of it is still uppermost in the hearts of the people. This love of the whole people for the whole country will overwhelm all discontents and disaffections of all parts and of all parties, and declare, with a voice which all must hearfrom this weakness and cowardice on the part of the Government time alone can determine; but if civil war shall be forced upon us, with all its attendant evils, let the friends of the Union first put themselves entirely in the right, in every particular, let no just ground of complaint exist against them — do all they can to prevent strife, then act on the defensive; but act with a vigor that will make their enemies respect them. I am, with great respect, your ob't. serv't. John M. Botts.
