"Twice before in the history of the Nation
bare the people been called upon to mourn

I then, graves good and great men, beloved
and honored. They were removed from the
arduous labors of Chief Magistrate of a grea
Nation by the ordinary dispensations of di
vine Providence. In the course of human
J events they sickened and died, surrounded
by their families and friends, in the full con
sciousness of approaching dissolution qui
etly melted away from the galaxy of noble
men into the immortality of the future. The
Nation was at peace and no disturbing ele
ments howled round the land. The Nation
mournad their deaths, but that mourning
was modified in humble submission to the
will of God. In the present case the Na
tional affliction is much more oppressive.
President Lijcoln was called to the Maj-
estacy at th aiist important crisis in the
history of the Jtountry. He administered,

time, that the President was shot and the
Secretary stabbed, with all the accompany
ing circumstances leave no room for doubt
on that head. That it was from political
consideration, is equally, obvious. It is t
question of vast moment what peculiar polit
ical considerations prompted this act and!
how far the conspiracy extends. Were these

This aggravates the enormity of this rebelK
ion and fixes its fate forever
Justice! Justice! The assassination
of the President and Secretary could not
have been the result of a combination in
volving any man of clear head, with the best
interest of the South in view. Apart from
the enormity of the crime, which we have
no words to express, it was the worst possi
bla thing that could have been done for the
South. The Government for self preserva
tion will have to ignore much of what has
been heretofore called State rights. This
act of these two desperadoes, under all the
purroundtngs, will do more to cehtralize
, power in the Executive than every other act

prosecution of the war, if it should be
waged for years, that leniency heretofore
characteristic of the Government, will be
abandoned and stern and perhaps vindictive
justice substituted in its place. The great
Northern heart is so aroused that the sword
will have to do much that public sentiment
was about to do, in restoring peace to eur
bleeding country. If the Government is
able to put down the rebellion on principles

Wrong to the highest degree in the rebell

too bravely on a thousand fields to be com
petent to such cowardly deeds as these.
The circumstances would rather incline
us to the believe that this conspiracy came
from Virginia. " Sic semper tyrannis "
may this ever be the fate of tyrants th
words the assassin used when he jumped on
to the stage while flourishing a large knife
over his head, in the face of the crowded au
dience, just after he had inflicted what he
knew to be a mortal wound on the Presi
dent, are the classic motto of the State of
Virginia. This would naturally turn our
eyes to Virginia seeking vengeance for her
prostration. Some defiant, reckless Virgini
an we conjecture perpetrated this deed.
Another thought however the great body
of the revolted States will look upon this as
the most atrocious act on record, is it, or is
at not the legitimate result of the rebellion ?!
Destroy the Government or rule with slavery

and feeling of the South. Failing in this,
base men, and thousands there are, will

of an assassin. If they cannot overthrow
tho Government founded in the popular
voice, they can at least murder the officers
of the Government, and thus everlastingly
keep the Nation in mourning and trepeda

these conspirators, would murder every Gov
