What is to become of your negroes?--There were four millions of them in the Southern Confederacy at the commencement of the war. They are all to be turned loose upon us if we consent to the only terms Mr. Lincoln offers us. They cannot go to the North. I would almost be willing to send them to Massachusetts. [Laughter.] I think they would elevate the tone of its society very much. [Laughter.] Indeed, I think every darkey sent from this country for robbing hen roosts and stealing hogs would be a missionary to that depraved and God-forsaken country. [Continued laughter] But they would not receive them; for they are so determined on shutting out anything which might improve their moral condition, and thereby disturb their swindling "calculations," they have, in common with every Northern St

ting out anything which might improve their moral condition, and thereby disturb their swindling "calculations," they have, in common with every Northern State, passed laws prohibiting free negroes from settling within their limits.--Let us see what would be done with these millions of blacks, as already indicated by the acts of the enemy; and I will only cite to you one case, of which there are hundreds of illustrations, all pointing to the same dreadful result, in the little village of Beaufort, S.C., situated in the sea island cotton districts, from which the inhabitants were expelled, the land has been recently laid off into lots of twenty acres and put up for sale. I read the account of the sales as published in the Philadelphia Inquirer. The correspondent says: "The sale commenced on Tuesday, and bids fair to extend to the space of several days to come. The South Carolina colored man stands a far better chance than the wealthy Wall street man. The interest exhibited by t

No. You will get no pension; but we will tax as heavily as we can your little potato patch to pension the man who maimed you for life, desolated your home, burned your house, insulted your mother." Could you endure such a spectacle? Let us not cease to remember that we all consented to this war — Old Line Whige as well as Secessionists. We consented after it appeared inevitable, and we must all stand up to it — every man, woman, and child through out the length and breadth of the Southern Confederacy. We must forget, if possible, for awhile the causes that led originally to this rupture, and each man take upon his shoulder the fell measure of burden and responsibility, regardless of consequences. [Applause.] But suppose, fellow-citizens, we could forget all these considerations of ho

that time you have thrown off that Constitution, you have gotten from under its obligations and sworn you would have nothing to do with it. Do you expect the Confederacy to be bound by a document you refuse to recognize as effecting yourselves? So soon as you announce to the world you are a sovereign and independent nation, as a matter of course the Confederacy has the right of declaring war against you for sufficient cause, equally with the right she holds of declaring war against England, France, or Holland. This right is inherent in all sovereignties. But what would Uncle Abraham say to it — that old gentleman whose personal pulchritude has been the subject of so much remark? [laughter,] and who, they say, can tell more bad jokes than I can. [Laughter.] How would be receive the intelligence that North Carolina had seceded from the Confederacy and set up for herself?

omplaint made about the impressment of property. Well, impressment is a very hard thing to bear, and it is frequently executed by men who have neither sense, discretion nor honesty; and are only kept out of jail and the lunatic asylum by the assistance of impudence, brass buttons and a little brief authority. [Voices, that's so.] But what are the evils of impressment here compared with the system of the enemy in Kentucky and elsewhere. As witness this: Headq'rs 23d army corps,Lexington, Ky., July 29, 1863. General Orders, No. 14. For the information and guidance of officers in impressing property, it is hereby directed that, whenever its impressment may become necessary for troops of the Twenty third army corps, it will be taken exclusively from rebels and rebel sympathizers; and so long as the property needed is to be found belonging or pertaining to either of the above named classes, no man of undoubted loyalty will be molested. Among rebel sympathizers will

much grace and dignity (a laugh) there were not five hundred suits of clothing to be found in the Quartermaster's Department. Now we have sixty thousand suits of ready made clothing awaiting the needs of our troops. We have thirty thousand blankets, shoes, &c. In fact, our boys have so many good clothes that I understand they trade them off for liquor sometimes. (Laughter.) Will you set a limit to our energy after I tell you, among a hundred other things, that in the little town of Tarboro', in this State, are made cases of keen, glittering, surgical instruments, requiring the highest degree of mechanical skill in their production? They will compare favorably with the best specimens of European manufacture. Almost every man I see here to-day is well clothed in the product of our own looms; and the ladies, God bless them, look in their homespuns prettier than they ever did. We will soon be commercially independent of the whole world. We had originally, including the States w

t in the quarrel. But Mr. Lincoln soon thrashed neutrality out of Kentucky, made her furnish her quota of men, and subjected her to her share of all the burden of the Government. Some time ago the election for Governor of the State came off. Two candidates were in the field — both Union men — but one of them opposed to the abolition policy of Lincoln's Administration. An individual by the name of Burnside--Gen. Burnside--A. E. Burnside — I had the honor of making his acquaintance down at Newbern, though I hadn't much time to exchange compliments with him. I had an engagement about that time, and had to cut the interview rather short. [Laughter.] Well, Gen. A. E. Burnside, aforesaid, was in Kentucky about the time of the election, and proclaimed martial law over the entire State. Now, there is a great difference between the suspension of the writ of habeas corpus in certain cases and the extension of martial law over a State. The former takes cognizance of a certain class of high<

The first Revolution and the Second. If we had no other encouragement the led lustrailous with which history is full wounded sustain us with the assurance that a determined people fighting for their liberties cannot be conquered. You know that in the war of the Revolution we had greater difficulties to accounter than now beset us. It is a notable fact that we were whipped in three-fourths of the battles of the Revolution. The enemy took the city of Charleston, marched through South Carolina, driving Marion and Sumner into the swamps, then into North Carolina, driving our forces back into the wilderness of Virginia, and then returned to Wilington, having traversed two States with the air of a conqueror. How far have the Yankees penetrated these two States? Our currency is in unsettled condition at twenty for one, but that of our Revolutionary forefathers eight hundred for one. The enemy hold every seaboard city, and indeed almost every city in the interior. Our armies w

men who make the Word of God contraband of war? Will the son seek to give the brotherly kiss to the murderer of his father, the outraged of his sister, the slaughterer of his people, the desolater of his land? Not while too faintest spark of mankind glows in his bosom [Applause] There is another aspect of the question to which I wish to call your attention, and one which deserves much consideration. I desire you to mark my prediction. There never can be peace on the Continent of North America until the North and South are independent and distinct nations. There might be a temporary peace; such a peace as you have seen effected by overpowering a gallant man, putting manacles upon his limbs, and throwing him into a dungeon; such a peace as exists until he wrenches the bars, scales the walls, and strikes terror into the hearts of his enemies when they dream they are most secure. You would have such a peace as Poland has to-day. She has obtained peace again and again; but so c
