England man, no N e w Yorker, known on the conti­ nent, but all © f i f Am ericans.” Or take, if y o u r prefer, the words of Patrick Henry, tittered i ^ p e ^ d u r of our nation’s hirfh-thrpes: “ All Am e rica $ thrown into one mas9. W here are your landmarks—your boundaries o f colonies? They are *11 thrown down. The distinction between Virginians, Pennsylvanians, Now Yorkers, N e w Englanders'are no moro. Iam not a Virginian but a n American .” W e havo heard much, during the present war, about the intervention o f foreign powers, in the m a tter o f this rebellion. What is the duty of our nation apd people in regard to all such intermeddling? IVe are bound to treat all the nations as M ends— to ask from them nothing hut what w e believe t o be right and just, and under no circumstances to submit to anything that is wrong. This has b een th e policy o f t h e Government in the past, and has proved entire­ ly satisfactory in i t s results. Under i t we have ad­ vanced steadily and with rapid strides, to a position second to none. T h o destiny o f this nation has p o t been accomplished, and i t must n o t be cut short. - As a divided nation we would be at tho mercy o f the des­ pots of t h e old world; but united, we may defy Eu­ rope combined. . W h ile w e 'do not desire any trouble with t h e foreign powers, still o n r motto, our language must b e \Hands off!” T h e United States need no aid, a nd sh e cannot permit any interference against her. When Eng- land does justice to her own subjects and releases her iron rod from tlje little island-near hotne, then i t will be time enough for her tb look abroad. Should she, or a n y other pow er, attempt to aid this rebellion, by her or their interference, it will then be found that the blood of th'ose who fought in tho Revolution and in t h e war of 1812 still courses the veins o f our peo­ ple, and that while wo are capable of taking c a r e o f hom e affairs, w e know how to repel and punish inter­ ference in pur domestic matters. This continent is to he governed and controlled by the American, nation. Any interference o n the part o f England, m ight pro­ voke some inquiry by what right she holds Canada, and it might be quite troublesome, for h e r to defend it. No, no, let the powers o f Europe attend to their own business, and America will do likewise. Americans! the eyes o f the world are now resting .upon you. Par away in distant lands, w h ere the wail o f oppression is heard, there ascend unto” Heaven prayers for your nation’s safety and glory. L e t not the hopes, which your past career lias created, b e dis- 'appointed. “ Go forward,” a6 become a great and mighty peo­ ple. See to it that no harm befalls t h e government. T h e national heart is still sound, and i t s desire is that the Union shall be preserved, in the Spirit of its found­ ers, for t h e benefit o f all. L e t us remember that this country is too g reat, its history too rich in historic ac­ tions, and the future too'grand to forbid our pursuing any other thaii a bold, manly and determined course towards those who now seek to overthrow i t . T h e past twelve months furnishes an instance o f de­ votion to tlie Government, such a s finds no p a r a llel in history. An nrmy, such as the world bas never seen, lias come into existence, almost by magic. I t seem e d : “ A s if the very earth again, Grew quick with God’s creating breath ; And from the eods of grove and glen Roie ranks of lion-hearted men To battle to the death.” WtWKD Nor has this enthusiasm been confined alone to the native-born. The German war song, t h e Hungarian bpttle cry, and the hearty Irish cheer, have on every battle field mingled their n otes with the stirring strains o f our national airs. H o w w e ll they fought, with what courage aud skill ♦Key have met and overcome greatly superior num­ bers, let the fields tendered sacred by their bloody struggles testify. T h e se t e ll us that our nation shall stand io c h e er and b less the world. T h e clouds that gather, across the horizon will dis­ appear, the gathering storm has spent i t s fury, and all that treason, skill and cunning could d o for our de­ struction, has been applied but in vain. Our Union shall endure and its praises shall be heard when its assailants and protectors all sleep the sleep o f Death. It shall b e lisped in the earliest words, and ring in th e merry voices of childhood, and sw e ll to Heaven, upon the song o f maidens— it shall iive in the stern resolve o f manhood, and rise to t h e mercy seat upon woman's a v a iling prayer. H o ly m en shall invoke its perpet uity at the altars of religion, aud it shall be whispered in the last accents o f expiring age. \ T o n g lo r io u s b o w O f F r o p tlo m , b e n d o d b y t b e linnd of ( 3 or), Is spanning Time’s dark Burges.

BONHAM, S tead y ‘a n d ThoaghtfH l T h e action o f Congress, the Proclamation o f the Presidi nt (published below), the conference of our brave Generals, a ll indicate that important events are close ot hand. The government and the people are unusually thoughtful, and the steady purpose is to go on with the war, as i f war was meant. Th'e time-for fault finding and contention among ourselves has pass­ ed, and the universal opinion of loyal men is “ L e t us he up and finish the war.” There are som e 'm en whose sympathies have been and are «ow with the southern treason, who would like to create discord io the ranks o f patriots, but now their occupation is.gone, and the most thoughtful among the people are of the firm determination that such men will not be, must not be tolerated much longer. In every community, here and e lsew h e re, the determination is coming to a head that such m en must stop eren their semi-trea­ son, or fare worse. Military orders are removing traitors beyond the linos of our army or putting them in prison; and public sentiment at the north will soop rem o v e the sympathizers with treason from their midst or silence them, A steady purpose, on the part o f all thoughtful and loyal pien, to silence the few cravens who are sneaking around, ahusing the govern- m ei.t, discouraging enlistments, nnd.croakir.g over d is­ aster, will succeed, and it w ill succeed th e sooner, if the community generally would “ taboo” every soul mean enough to disparago his .country's c a u se in the hour o f its g r eatest need. T h e significant action bf tlie government, the ener g y of military men, the rapid accumulation of men and money, a r e signs calculated to encourage the pub­ lic heart. T h e pulse o f the country beats steadily now. Men, universally, are thoughtful now —party strife is hushed now— the nation has determined now, to go to w a r ; and one and all (except the sm all class above alluded to)' are hastening to this point—\ the last dollar and the last man 'if n ecessary to save the Republic.” Enlistments, t o fill up old regiments and to form the new, are going oh rapidly; and capitalists a ll over the land are pouring out their money t o j ielp the e n ­ listments. Governors — Legislatures— Corporations' and Individuals ore vieibg With each other in the measure of tlieir Bounty; and the munificence o f t h e country is just beginning to appear. W e have no dause to fear now. T h e war, hy the direction of Halleck, McClellan, Burnside, Pope, et omnes, always including '.our gallant Navy, will l^e called war , hereafter; and it will be war to the end o f the chapter. . Abraham Lincoln, President o f these United States, has proved himself to he one o f the greatest living statesm en. H e ants steadily, n e turns neither to' th e right pr the left to favor the clamor o f interested politicises, IJe thinks and he acts.
