" All. wo akk I to bu li t nlone" uid
Jiff llavin in bit message to Ihe Montgom
ery Congress-. "Oh, jm, that all the
South wants a my returnable request
truly," ku il the orjanj of treason in thii
Stuttf. When Floyd, Cobb, and Tbom
nn, with more than two hundred traitor
of smaller caliber, filling Important post in
th Government, wero bury during a good
part of Bm.hahun' administration in rob
binj; Northern arsenals and plundering the
United Stated Treasury, to furnish rebel
with tlio sinew of an Internecine war, then
agreed upon, they were indignant that the
people should call thorn to account fur their
t.ulcial conduct, and told u thnt " all we
ask la to bo lit Moiic." " Ii'i nothing
tnoro than lair to let 'cm ulonc Just let
. 'cm alone!" Bald the Portluud Advertiser,
and all the Lane organ of treason said
' amen.' Well, everybody did " let them
iiloue." Being " let alone," the rebels bo
cuino emboldened to steal all the forts they
could readily lay their hands on, and rob
the U. S. mint at New Orleans of half a
million of Government money, brides Gr
ing into one Government vcfscl and steal
ing several others belonging to Northern
merchants. As the rebel boro off the
well-stuffed bags of Government gold, they
cockwl one eye at Uncle Sam over the lull
shoulder, and owmrcd thu old gentleman
that tliuro ahouldn't b.i a bit of difficulty
ubont the matter if tliry wcro only ' let
alone.' " All wcnsk,"uid tliey, " is merely
to be let ulonc.'' They dug trenches, reared
breastwork), and planted batteries all
around Fort Sumter, threatening every day
to demolish the fort or take it by Bturving
rait tho garrison sending messages to Bit-
eh, iimn in the moan time, iulorining him that
"nil tliry asked wiih to bo let alone."
liuclinnnn told tho rebels they should " bo
let nliiiie," and forthwith sent orders to
.Major Anderson to " lit them nlone."
Abraliam Lincolu hiving committed tho
iiiiuo of attempting to feed tho starving
garrison, the rebels opened their batteries
on Fort Sumter, riddled its walls, shot
licr.vii tho American flag, net I lie fort on
tire, and drove out the little squad of half
Kturrcd patriots tilling tlio North "we
have humbled tho American Hug taken
a strong U. S. fort by forco and thero
will bo no difficulty about it, if you only
. let us alone all ice aik in to be let alone."
On tho morning of A pril 1 3, tho day
following the full of Sumter, tlio Richmond
Enquirer announced that nothing was more
; bublo thuu that President Davis would
i-....n inarch at. iirmy through North Caro
mil Virginia to Washington, and
..-ili, I on volunteers to kop l'ir arms in
.1) i-vt n(t readiness to join in t It's march.
" Wo can tuko Washington, mid drive out
Lincoln or kill him, if we are only let nlone
all wo want is to he let ulonc," suid tho
rebels. " Wo hope to hen Ten they will bo
I, t alone," said the-Advcrtier. " Oh, yes,
it's an awful thing to coerce," sniveled poor
Water. Well, tho Government let them
nlone, till tho North and nil thu rest of tho
world began to be uniwd, and tho rebels
began to think that they could go where
tiiry pleased, and do as they desired. Tlio
Richmond Examiner, ol May 16ih, review
ing tho situation of affairs, siys; " Wo
have taken i great many forts and hun
dreds of thousands of arms without opposi
tion. If all tlio Slave States will push for
ward troops, arm, and provisions to the
lino of tlio Potomac, tho Administration
will probably fly from Washington In dis
grace, without striking a blow. So fur
the South has dono well, hut slio must do
better, and do it speedily. Forces in large
numbers threatening Washington will drive
away tlio Government from that city, or
fjrcj thu Norlb to rxpend its whole strength
In the attempt to defend it. Tho Northern
troops and tho Northern Government, in
stead of invading the South, must bt betieg
ed li the South? " All we ask is to be
let alone, we will do it, if not coerced,"
uid Jeff DaTis. The Memphis Bulletin,
vf June 8, say Tho troops in the south
west long for an opportunity to go towards
Cairo, nod wo fear their patriotic fervor
will not oe inucn longer repressed. Lot
the order to march be given, and not Cui
ro only, but Evansville, New Albany, Can
cinnati, Marietta, and Wheeling will all be
taken, while tho Southern men will bo
placed in charge of Louisville, and regular
communication will be again opened from
all points." " We will certainly do all thfs,"
anid Beauregard, " if they only let us alone."
" Why, in God's name, don't Lincoln let
'em alone"? squeaks Slater's Union, while
poor Curry whines out, " We're agin Lin
coln's unconstitutional coercion."
In tho mean time, loyal Uiiion-loving
men and tromen in all the rvltcl States are
net upon by the minions of Jeff Pavis, and,
like the saints of old, have " hud trial of
cruel mocking and scourging, yea, more-

S&" It hus been telegraphed from Louis-

pressed Iry the reverse nl Manassas, arc
firm and resolute, mid so it ia in St. Louis
as well as in Missouri. Tho St. Louis
Democrat says the reverse will prove tho
salvation of the Union cause, and arouse
such a tornado that million of brave
hearts havo already sworn to wipe out the
disaster, and cover the rebel Stutes with
whitened monuments of retributive justice.
There will be fresh levies and additional calls
for troops. The North possesses wonder
ful elements ol recuperation, nud now is
tho tinio to show them. It will muko the
war bloodier than ever anticipated, and
European nations will stnntl Pghast with
horror. Such is tho result of trying to dis
solve the Union. Another effect will now
be uiodo by tho compromisers to bring
their scheme into notice, but with North
ern homes desolated, a cry of revenge will
go forth so strong ns to threaten the per
sonal safety of any man who dares to gay
compromise more than ouco.
Wilms Stand tub Masons. Tho fol
lowing extract from nn address by .1. S.
Kiuney, befure the Grand Lodge of P. &
A. Masons, at Pluttsmouth, Nebraska, on
tho 5th of June, pretty conclusively shows
how tho Masons stand on the national
" In this hour of our country's peril,
what is the duty of the entire Masonic fra
ternity of the country? Every true Mason
has no difficulty in nnswering this question.
Ou entering tho very threshold of Masonry,
you promise to be a quiet, peaceful suhject,
truo to your Government, and just to your
country. You prouiiso not to countenance
disloyalty or rebellion, but patiently submit
to legal authority, anil conform with cheer
fulness to the Government of the country
in which you live. This obligation you
cannot throw off loyalty to your Govern
ment is next in importance, to fidelity to
your God. Both tire tuught, oud should
be rigidly enforced, by our order. No Ma
son can conscientiously take up arms
against his Government; if he does, ho for
feits the friendship and protection of nil
good Masons. I do not hesitato to hazard
the remark that the large conservative cle
ment of the Southern Stutes is composed
chiefly of Masons, and of the thrco hundred
and fifty thoiisnnd brethren in the North-
cm States, fur more than their proportion,
according to their population, have rushed
to the deleuce of our glorious Republic."
The Trofosed National Gparp. The
bill for the organization of a National
Guard, which Senator Wilson has intro
duced, provide for the enrolment of 240,-
000 men, between 21 and 35 years old, to
be divided iuto 200 regiments of 12 com
panies each, appropriated among the
Slates pro rata, according to their repre
sensation in Congress. After lix year'
service, those who enlist are entitled to an
honorable discharge, and to exemption
from service on the jury. Eighty thousand
oro to be enrolled the flrgt year, 'and the
same number the second and third, so that
a third may go out of service nt a time.
The President is to have tho power to call
out the Guard, or any part of it, ii. case of
invasion, or insurrection beyond the power
of the civil arm.

Ocb Irish Ff.li.ow Citizkn in nt

Lincoln. Tho Journal says:
In erory war that America has wined,
for Independence, to repel invasion, or to

scarce a bat lie from Hunker Hill to Oil-

ife-tidu of Irish and American hearts.
When the present unholy rebellion broke
out, nnd when it brcumo apparent that
terriulo struggle for the Lie or desth of free
institution wa unavoidable, there were
many who doubted the loynlty of Irishmen.
They fen red that Southern sympathy and
party prejudico would provo Htronjcr than
uflictioii for their adopted country. Ikt
these unworthy suspicion were soon dn-
misted. Archbishop Hughe raised orcr
his residence tho national ensign and tiro-
cliiinu'.l it to be the duty of every man to
defend it. Our glorious flap; waved from
many n cathedral spire, and at tho lint
call to arms thousands of the strong-nrmcd,

to swell the ranks of tho grand nrniy of tie
Union. Tho gollnnt 69lh, of ew York,

e found himself with nbont three thousand
men nt hi orJern. Iu the list of ordinance
supplies of the Fort he found 175,000 car

to look up his store", be fonud, instead of
175,000, only about 4,500, cartridge.
Of course, with n bullet nnd a hnlf to each
man, an army is not likely to do uinch;
nd this uccounts not only for Gen. Bailer
temporary inactivity, but also for the ac
tivity of the rebels, who took up daring
positions in perfect safety, knowing that
our troop had no ammunition. When tw
Montgomery pirates come to erect a rnon-
ment to their founder, he will probably be
represented in the net of running off with
