clique to Gen. McClellan and his well-considered plans was at the bottom of this movement, and that these Abolition radicals have been playing their cards with our armies in Virginia so as to bring about some great disaster, under the pressure of which the administration and the army might be dragged headlong into an exterminating crusade against Southern slavery. This is our solution of this unfortunate repulse of General Banks. We trace it to the enmity of Senators Wilson, Trumbull, Sumner and others of that clique in the Senate, and to Thaddeus Stevens, Lovejoy and their abolition brethren of the House; and to their successful tricks and intrigues to break up the army and the plans of Gen. McClellan, to stop recruiting for the army, when fifty thousand more men were needed to secure our conquests in Virginia, and a hundred thousand more to push the rebels speedily out of the State. Let the responsibility then rest where it belongs. We cannot consent that either the Presiden

nge as it may seem, "slaves" as well as cotton, for, although they are robbing us of our servants as fast as they can, they are unwilling to permit what are left to escape taxation! The religious obligation they always feel to raise revenue — to supply the fisc, private and public — will not allow them to pass over anything, and that higher religious obligation they to themselves compels them to make the public burthens light on themselves and as heavy as possible on other people. So, even Sumner proposes the amendment on this point, which is worded most singularly, and which he declares taxes the "state-master," not the " slave" So ingenious is the Yankee in contriving his schemes of robbery and accommodating his pliant conscience to his selfish or revengeful purposes'. This bill is a plain avowal of the design of the Yankee Government, in the event it gets the power over the South.
