een omitted it would have been harmless; that Lincoln had gotten up this fire-arm, and it was put in at Lincoln's suggestion, and the letter was a simple letter of introduction; and if Sumter had no finding of two letters on the person of Thomas D. Lincoln, written by the Senator from Indiana, onwas addressed to his Excellency Jeff Davis. Mr. Lincoln's treason could not be of the darkest kind,reful to retain this letter, as evidence of Mr. Lincoln's treason, and it was found on the person oa loyal man, and would have made him denounce Lincoln as a mercenary traitor, instead of sending hi aided, or intended to aid, those two rebels, Lincoln and Davis — knowingly aided them in the proseck,) who alleged that it does not appear that Lincoln ever visited Davis.

ongress, how difficult it is for the North to defend itself against the tendency which leads to these desperate extremes. We may observe in passing, that since the beginning of this struggle, people in Europe have not been just enough towards Mr. Lincoln and his friends They have not had sufficient consideration for the reserve these have exhibited on the question of slavery. So far as it depended upon them, Mr. Lincoln and his friends have not desired to resolve it in a summary manner, amid Mr. Lincoln and his friends have not desired to resolve it in a summary manner, amid the fire of a civil war, and at the cost of cruel uncertainty and incalculable evil. They have sought to take away from violence the solution of a problem so formidable. They have tried to confine the quarrel between them and the secessionists within purely political grounds — on the question of ascertaining whether the most respectable of all contracts, that on which depends the existence of a constituted State, can be broken at the pleasure of one of the contracting parties.

As for the foreign General, with the unpronounceable name, who was associated with Thomas at Somerset, and who is said to have risen from the position of porter to that of General, we consider it very doubtful whether any such exchange of avocations can be properly designated as promotion. An honest German porter at a hotel is a much more respectable character than a Yankee General of an invading army, especially an army of Ohioan, who, according to Judge Tucker, have nothing beneath them on the face of the earth but their own swine. It is of such materials, however, that the great bulk of the invading army is composed. At least two hundred thousand foreigners are arrayed under the banner of Lincoln, and endeavoring to subjugate a country which gave them refuge from despotism, and to enslave a people who were their best friends.
Unionists in the South. The Lincoln journals labor with untiring assiduity to maintain the long ago exploded falsehood of a Union party in the South as if it were the most manifest and undeniable truth. They say there is a powerful Union feeling even in the heart of Secessia, and that all that is necessary to developed it is the presence of Federal troops. They undertake to draw a distinction between the Southern Government and the Southern people, and profess to believe that a large Une it themselves. It may be so with the oft-repeated assertion that the old Union is still dear to the hearts of a large number of the Southern people. But there never was a more palpable and libellous, falsehood. That, up to the period of Lincoln's proclamation, a majority of the people of Virginia and of the other border States was in favor of the Union, and determined to stand by it as long as they could with honor, no one denies. But, when that despot drew the sword, the Union party
