The Daily Dispatch: January 7, 1861., [Electronic resource], Letter from Col. F. H. Smith to a friend, on the questions of the day. (search)
uld not only not say one word in vindication of the South from the aspersions constantly indulged towards it, but who would, on the contrary, unite with our libelers in calumniating it. To be under the necessity of calling upon such men to extend to us the assistance of their official characters in foreign lands, would be a deep mortification. How would an honorable Southern gentleman ask the official aid of Seward, or Summer, or Doolittle, or Burlingame, or of that Marat of the American press, Greeley --Would he not rather appeal to the generosity and courtesy of the Representatives of England, of France, or Russia, or any other country? Would he not endure the sufferings of imprisonment rather than solicit a release at the hands of any one of these detestable men? We believe he would. Even though the South has the acknowledgment of all her rights, and the Union is restored — yet if Lincoln is installed, the four years of his rule will be four years of humiliation to the South.
Pretty good. --The Hon. James McQuade, of Utica, says of Lincoln's Cabinet: "One thing is settled — Greeley is to go into the Cabinet. He is to be Secretary of the Exterior — his principal duties, to watch the thermometer and tell how cold it is out there
The Prophet Greeley. The N. Y. Tribune, in October last, thus exhibited his surprising sagacity. He predicts how calm and quiet everything will be after Lincoln's election: "It will be pleasant and instructive to see what a quieting effect, like that of oil poured upon the waters, the election of Lincoln will have upon the agitation just now of the political elements. They (the Southern people) have not the slightest intention of giving any practical effect to those threats of secession, or forcible resistance to the inauguration and administration of Lincoln, out of which some of our city papers are striving to create a panic. The election over, they will hasten to shake off a suspicion fatal to all their future projects. The avowed disunionist will shrink into a little faction about as numerous and influential as our Garrison Abolitionists, while the great bulk of the Southern politicians will be too busy in looking forward to new combinations, and in schemes for re-
aw, the perfect recklessness with which in disregarding the constitutional rights of others, they set a fatal precedent for the future sacrifice of their own, demonstrate that they are not capable of self-government and not fit for freedom. If the South ever becomes monarchical, it will be some centuries after the North has set the example. The crowded population of the Northern States, and their heterogeneous character, will render necessary, for the protection of all the great interests of society, a strong Government, upheld by a considerable standing army. Therefore, we commend them, instead of speculating upon the alleged proclivities of South Carolina for monarchy, to be looking out for some competent person to succeed the present usurper, and as a faithful type of the dominant party of those States, we would recommend them to crown Greeley, of the Tribune, who has proved himself the master of their editors and statesmen, under the name, style and title of Horace the First.
nden. It is impossible that Kentucky can accommodate herself to the views and demands of the Lincoln dynasty without utterly degrading and enslaving herself. Greeley, the Marat of the Northern reign of terror, has plainly told the people of that State that the Government will not be trifled with, that Kentucky must take one side or the other.--And Greeley has been the most accurate oracle of the Washington despotism in the whole' Northern empire. Mr. Crittenden may well despair when Greeley launches his thunders against his impotent and drivelling efforts to keep Kentucky out of the strife and re-construct the Union! He goes to Washington with a plan Greeley launches his thunders against his impotent and drivelling efforts to keep Kentucky out of the strife and re-construct the Union! He goes to Washington with a plan utterly derided by the powers that be, and, if he be sincere in his professions and not in collusion with Lincoln, the object himself of the general contempt of the Black Republican party. He goes there, moreover, with a plan which contemplates a humiliation of the Southern States should they show it favor. A plan which would pla
extend its dominion." Without endorsing this longing for a foreign war, we approve of every deprecation of domestic strite. Compared with the bedlamite ravings of the Tribune, and the puerile carping and fretfulness of the Times, any utterances that have a peaceful tendency are welcome, and we greet them with hearty rejoicing. The Administration has succeeded in disgusting all parties. Its high-sounding promises are all blown to the wind. The savage coercion faction, who wish, with Greeley, that "Southern mothers should be reduced to poverty and their children to rags," that cities should be laid in ashes, and a general reign of horror be inaugurated, are, of course, woefully disappointed. We are not sure that the programme of the Constitution burners on the Fourth of July may not be reconsidered, and that they may not be compelled once more to celebrate that day with a sacrilegious bonfire. The bone, sinew, and intelligence of America utterly repudiate Mr. Lincoln and
views above expressed. Confederate citizens are allowed to travel through France without the vise of their passports by the Federal Consuls. Citizens of the United States are required to have their passports vised by their Consuls. Mr. Greeley's threats of withdrawing the exequatur from French Consuls in Confederate ports, has produced some irritation here. The hour the North adopted any such measure would see the whole diplomatic and consular corps of the United States swept out o formidable fleet leave Brest, Toulon and Cherbourg to end the blockade Mr. Lincoln has proclaimed. The North is unlucky in its statesmen. The speeches delivered by Mr. Clay and his accomplices--Mr. Seward's insolent dispatch to Mr. Dayton-- Mr. Greeley's threats and Mr. Seward's speeches in favor of annexing Canada, have done yeoman's service to the Confederate States. The Moniteur, (which is, as you know, the organ of the French Government,) says: "The most important news from Americ
Reward and Greeley. The correspondence of Northern papers from Washington represents a divisi said to be headed respectively by Seward and Greeley; Seward being sick of the wars and appalled at the results locming in the perspective; Greeley being full of the nigger and advocating its proseeach of them has a sort of wisdom in his way. Greeley is for giving the war an object which will atted in behalf of those sought to be crushed. Greeley sees this evident tendency of the public feel the scale of justice must kick the beam; and Greeley is for throwing in the tremendous avoirdupoise would popularize enlistments at the North. Greeley, in short, is all fanaticism with only the cud all its authors. Seward was against it and Greeley for it; and Seward has struck Greeley a very Greeley a very hard blow in the Message. It is noteworthy that Secretary Chase, in his Report to Congress, pabinet. Chase would seem to be on the side of Greeley and the bloody Blairs. War usually unite
self contradictory as it is dangerous. It comes invalid with the death smell from fields wet with brother's blood. If the vital principle of all republican governments is "the concept of the governed" much more does a union of conquest sovereign States require, as its basis, the forming of its members and their voluntary cooperate on in its organic functions. Comment on the above is unnecessary.--Contrast it with the Fourth of July speech of this same Edward Everett, in which he out Greeley's Greeley in his wild hurrah for the entire subjugation of the South. Even in the hot blaze of that natural indignation which the wicked invasion of the South has caused, the South will do the North no such injustice as to suppose that Edward Everett is a fair specimen of her people.--There are some whose voices have not joined the rabble shout, nor bowed the knee to Baal; there are a few who boldly and manfully have spoken out for truth and justice; and even of the brutal multitude, w

Gen. Scott's programme — his opposition to the advance on Richmond — his resentment towards that city. The infamous editor of the New York Times--appropriately styled by the Tribune the "little villain"--has become the champion of General Scott. He defends him against the party who clamored for the march to Richmond, led on by General Greeley, and to which the President yielded. In vindication of Gen. Scott, Raymond, of the Times, gives the substance of a conversation at the General's table, in presence of his Aids and a "single guest," (the "little villain" himself, we suppose.) This conversation, he says, took place on Tuesday, before the battle at Stone Bridge. Taken in connection with the impassioned remark of the aged Fuss and Feathers Chieftain before the President, as reported by Richardson, of Illinois, it would appear that he was overruled in the march to Manassas; but on pretty good authority it is stated that he declared, on the forenoon of the 21st, the most perfec
