an --one who would put the war upon a proper footing! seize and confiscate the property of all who dared oppose the ruling system of Northern Government, etc. Truly the barbarities of our enemies are beyond all description. All law-save military law — is suspended, banks robbed of specie, wealthy men .compelled to contribute largely for the wholesale destruction of friends and relatives, to say nothing of their political rights; prisons full in every city where their rule is paramount; Habeas Corpus laughed at, dwellings seized, property confiscated, negroes sold and carried away, farms destroyed, cattle driven off, barns, houses, burned before their owners' eyes, while mothers, wives, sisters, or daughters, are insulted and disgraced, and oftentimes murdered. All this is true. God forbid I should exaggerate; and were I willing to do so, things are so bad they could not be painted worse, with all the coloring in the world. Our whole march to this place has presented harrowing si

uppressing an insurrection. He spoke of other savage practices which have been resorted to by the Government of the United States, and cited the case of the prisoners taken with the pirate-ship Savannah, already referred to in this work. See page 557, volume I. After speaking of the annunciation at the seat of Government, that the States were subordinate to the National authority and had no right to secede, and that the President was authorized to suspend the privilege of the writ of Habeas Corpus, when, as the Constitution says, in cases of rebellion or invasion the public safety may require it, he said: We may well rejoice that we have severed all connection with a Government which thus tramples on all the principles of constitutional liberty, and with a people in whose presence such avowals could be hazarded. He then spoke of the enthusiasm of the Southern people, their abundant offers of aid to the Confederacy, and the almost unquestioning confidence which they display in the

ee respectable judges of the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania--Lowrie, Woodward, and Thompson — and, with this legal sanction, the politicians opposed the Draft with a high hand. In the mean time the suspension of the privilege of the writ of Habeas Corpus and the practice of arbitrary arrests had become a subject for the bitter denunciations of the Peace Faction. They were specially excited to opposition by the arrest and punishment, under military authority, of C. L. Vallandigham, late membe within the military lines of the Confederates, and, in the event of his returning without leave, to suffer the penalty prescribed by the court. Judge Leavitt, of the United States District Court of Ohio, refused an application for a writ of Habeas Corpus in his case, and the convict was passed by General Rosecrans toward the Confederate lines. Vallandigham being of use to the conspirators in Ohio, and none at all in their own dominions, his ungrateful Southern friends, for whose cause he had

he cause of the Conspirators, had assumed a belligerent tone toward Congress and the loyal people, which disturbed the latter by unpleasant forebodings. Meanwhile measures for perfecting peaceful relations throughout the Republic had been taken. The order for a blockade of the Southern ports was rescinded; June 23, 1865 more of the rigid restrictions on internal commerce were removed; Aug. 29. State prisoners were paroled, Oct. 12. and the act suspending the privilege of the writ of Habeas Corpus was annulled. Dec. 1. The provisional governors appointed by the President were diligent in carrying out his policy of reorganization, and before Congress met, in December, conventions in five of the disorganized States had ratified the Amendment of the Constitution concerning slavery, formed new Constitutions for their respective States, and caused the election of representatives in Congress. The President had hurried on the work by directing the provisional governors of the five

e The state of my provinces, surly of late, Missouri and Maryland--one has the paw Of my Lyon upon her; and one has the law Called martial, proclaimed through her borders and cities; Both are crushed, a Big Thing, I make bold to say, it is. St. Louis is silent and Baltimore dumb, They hear but the monotone roll of my drum. In the latter vile sea-port I ordered Cadwallader To manacle Freedom, and though the crowd followed her, Locked up in McHenry, she's safe, it is plain, With Merryman, Habeas Corpus, and Kane. And as for that crabbed old dotart, Judge Taney, For much I would put him on board of the Pawnee, And make his decisions a little more curt; For the panic's fictitious, and nobody's hurt! And now I'll just say what I'd have you to do In order to put your new President through: First, four hundred millions is wanted by Chase, He cannot run longer the Government's face; And Cameron wants, for the use of old Scott, Some three hundred thousand more men than he's got.
