vices for saving the Union. Mr. John Sherman, of Ohio, suggested a faithful observance, on all hands, of the requirements and compromises of the Constitution, with an immediate division of the territories into embryo States, with a view to their prompt admission into the Union. Mr. John Cochrane, of New York, revived the old scheme of dividing the territories between Free and Slave Labor on the line of 36° 30′. Mr. English, of Indiana, proposed substantially the same thing. Mr. Noell, of Missouri, proposed an abolition of the office of President of the United States, and a division of the Union into three districts, each to elect one member of an Executive Council, to which the functions of President should be intrusted. He suggested, moreover, a restoration of the equilibrium between the Free and Slave States, by a division of several of the latter into two or more States each. Mr. Thomas C.

will depend greatly upon whether we present to the world, as I trust we shall, a better government than that to which they belong. If we do this, North Carolina, Tennessee, and Arkansas, cannot hesitate long; neither can Virginia, Kentucky, and Missouri. They will necessarily gravitate to us by an imperious law. We made ample provision in our Constitution for the admission of other States. It is more guarded-and wisely so, I think-than the old Constitution on the same subject; but not too guae proper. Looking to the distant future-and perhaps not very distant either — it is not beyond the range of possibility, and even probability, that all the great States of the North-West shall gravitate this way, as well as Tennessee, Kentucky, Missouri, Arkansas, etc. Should they do so, our doors are wide enough to receive them; but not until they are ready to assimilate with us in principle. The process of disintegration in the old Union may be expected to go on with almost absolute certai

They were William H. Seward, of New York, Secr'y of State; Salmon P. Chase, of Ohio, Secretary of the Treasury; Simon Cameron, of Pennsylvania, Secretary of War; Gideon Wells, of (Connecticut, Secr'y of the Navy; Caleb B. Smith, of Indiana, Secretary of the Interior ; Edward Bates, of Missouri. Attorney-General; Montgomery Blair, of Maryland, Postmaster-General. Mr. Jefferson Davis, ruling at Montgomery, had already constituted his Cabinet, which consisted of Robert Toombs, of Georgia, Secretary of State; Charles G. Memminger, of South Carolina, Secretary of the Treasury; Leroy Pope Walker, of Alabama, Secretary of War; to which were afterward added Stephen R. Mallory, of Florida, Sec'ry of the Navy; John H. Reagan, of Texas, Postmaster-General.

Gov. Claiborne F. Jackson, April 16th. of Missouri, gave these among his reasons for disregarding and defying the President's call: It is illegal, unconstitutional, revolutionary, inhuman, diabolical, and cannot be complied with. He added: Not one man will the State of Missouri furnish to carry on so unholy a crusade. Gov. Burton, of Delaware, deferred his response to the 26th, and then stated that the laws of this State do not confer upon the Executive any authority allowing him to comply with such requisition.

But the claim is baseless and impudent. did not unite with the Confederacy, the preponderance of population in the adhering over that of the seceded States was somewhat more than two to one. The disparity in wealth between the contending parties was at least equal to this; so that there was plausibility in the claim of the Confederates to that sympatt committal shall stand. Should there be any unexpected change in the aspect of affairs at Washington which would hold out the hope that the publication of my Missouri Compromise letter would do any good, it shall yet be published.

It would leave the 25,000 majority in East Tennessee, the vast majority in Missouri, and everywhere else, at the mercy of the Rebels. I say, further, that, if we remain idle for such a period of time, doing nothing upon the borders of these re Riot Act to an excited mob, and sending a squad of police to disperse it. Hence, the many prisoners of war taken with arms in their hands, in West Virginia and Missouri, had, up to this time, been quite commonly permitted to go at large on taking an oath For the first year of the war, no regular list of prisoners taken by us rished a shadow of doubt that the independence of the Confederacy was secured. The vote of Tennessee for Secession, the sudden uprising of a great Rebel army in Missouri, and the strengthening of the cause and its defenders everywhere, owe much of their impulse to the dispatches which flashed over the rejoicing South assurances t
