alk was the evident delight at our military failures. I do not write the words willingly; for, realizing profoundly that this rebellion can be put down by no party and by no effort that stops short of embracing the people of the North, I know how fully it is admitting that the end of these troublous times is not yet in sight. But there could be no mistaking the tone of exultation in which the invasion of the North and the siege of the capital in the fourth year of the war were paraded, and Grant's flanking operations were laughed at, and the ability of Jeff Davis was exultantly eulogized. Mr. Chase and the Presidency. Some of Mr. Chase's friends lately addressed him a letter of inquiry as to his views on the political situation, but more particularly to ascertain whether he was opposed to Mr. Lincoln's re-election. In his reply, Mr. Chase says: I do not see any reason for believing that the great cause to which we are all bound can be promoted any better, or as well
you have acknowledged secession in your Constitution; we will quietly walk out." In this way the Union would go to pieces, and the country we tried to save be broken up by the very compromise that was intended to preserve it. We can make no compromise but what will break up the Government. The only way to get out of the war is to fight it out. (Applause.) "But these peace men say the North is exhausted. Are we exhausted?

This appointment makes it clearer than ever that the sensible men
the number of men who have already been returned by the Conscription Bureau, but have never served. First. There are believed to be upwards of eight thousand men, of conscript age, belonging to the State Government of Virginia alone. Fully as many are attached to each of the State Governments of North Carolina, Georgia and Alabama. Here are thirty-two thousand men at once — a powerful army of themselves. If General Lee had them well disciplined at this moment, he would settle with Grant before another week had passed over our heads. If General Hood had them, Sherman would leave Atlanta much laster than he came to it. By some means or other these men should be come at. The Confederate Government cannot do it, but the State Government can, by the simplest process in the world. Let each State Legislature be assembled at once, and take measures to place all State officers, who are of the required age, at the disposal of the conscript officers. We especially recommend this po
