der Slave-labor States, that ample aid in men and money would be given to the Southern cause. And an adroit knave named Sanders, who had been a conspicuous politician of the baser sort in the North, and who was in Montgomery as the self-constitutedossible. To impress his new political associates with exalted ideas of his power as a Democratic leader in the North, Sanders sent, by telegraph, the following pompous dispatch to his political friends in New York:-- Montgomery, April 14. Tond curt-- “Sumter is ours, and nobody hurt; With mortar, Paixhan, and petard, We tender Old Abe our Beau-regard.” George N. Sanders. This man, as we shall observe hereafter, was a conspicuous actor in the most infamous work of the conspiratorsesponse of some of the ablest representatives of the venerable Democratic party to the slanderers of that party, such as Sanders and his like in the South, and its trading politicians in the North.

s to assemble in the city of Chicago. Meanwhile, there was a notable gathering of emissaries and friends of the Conspirators at the Clifton House, on the Canada side of Niagara Falls, The chief agents of the Conspirators in Canada, were George N. Sanders, (see page 340, volume I.), Jacob Thompson (see page 45, volume I.), Clement C. Clay (see page 229, volume I.), J. P. Holcombe, and Beverly Tucker. partly for the purpose of co-operating with the leaders of the Peace Faction, in shaping thed the way would be thus opened for the independence of the Confederate States, and the permanent dissolution of the Union. To do this, a letter was addressed July 5, 1864. to Horace Greeley, of New York, from the Clifton House, Canada, by George N. Sanders, a politician of the baser sort, See page 840, volume I. and then high in the confidence of the Conspirators, who said that himself and C. C. Clay, of Alabama, and J. P. Holcombe, of Virginia, were authorized to go to Washington City, in

Mr. Douglas himself, being catechised on the subject, While speaking at Norfolk, Va., during the canvass of 1860. frankly declared that, should Lincoln be chosen President, he would not consider that a cause for resistance, but should adhere to and uphold the Union. Yet the result of the election had hardly transpired when his friend Gov. Letcher of Virginia, Mr. George N. Sanders, of Kentucky, who had been one of his busiest and noisiest champions, and many more such, made haste to swell the gathering cohorts of Secession. The ablest and most respectable of their number was Mr. Alex. H. Stephens, of Georgia, whose courage and loyalty endured at least a week after those of his late compatriots had bidden them a final adieu. The Legislature of Georgia having assembled, At Milledgeville, Nov. 8, 1860. Mr. Stephens presented himself and spoke At the State

Jan. 29.--The Cincinnati Commercial states that George N. Sanders, is at Louisville assuming to be the mouth-piece of Judge Douglas, and, as such, advising the immediate secession of the border States, with a view to reconstruction.
March 31.--Mr. George N. Sanders telegraphed to-day from Montgomery, a special despatch to the N. Y. Tribune, that Newport is again to become the commercial rival of New York. If Sprague is elected Governor of Rhode Island, that plucky little State will at once abandon the old hulk of the Union, offering at once a commercial depot and a summer residence for Southerners. The estimated value of the traffic thus diverted from New York, may be set down at $50,000,000 annually, so long as the latter remains in the Union. Fort Pickens will soon be reduced to the same condition as Fort Sumter. Glorious account come from all parts of the New Confederation.--New York Tribune, April 1.
Mr. George N. Sanders, who is now in Montgomery, telegraphs from there yesterday, that in order to prevent anarchy and war the Democrats at the north should at once rebel and accept the constitution of the Conferate States. How the rebellion of a political minority against the lawful government can prevent anarchy and war is somewhat difficult to conceive. But what means this well known Democrat by the term should at once rebel ? Is it only a matter of time? Is the Democratic party pledged to rebellion, and only waits the occasion? Who will explain.--Commercial Advertiser, April 11.

ndred yards distant. Not knowing whether the woods, against which the right of my line was to rest, was occupied by the enemy, the Tenth Alabama regiment (Colonel Forney) was ordered to occupy the woods, and the Eleventh Alabama regiment (Colonel Sanders) formed in line in the open field to the left of the Tenth. The regiments, being preceded by skirmishers, were ordered to advance — the Eleventh to its position in line in rear of a fence, and the Tenth to keep on a line with the Eleventhrm badly broken; Captain Smith, Ninth Alabama, severe wound through the body. (entitled to the promotion of lieutenant-colonel); Captain Brandigan, Eighth Alabama, leg broken. These four were left, not being able to bear transportation. Colonel Sanders, Eleventh Alabama, and Major Fletcher, of same regiment, each received severe wounds. Captain King, Ninth Alabama (entitled to promotion of colonel), had a finger shot off. It will be seen that of five of my regimental commanders four we
