Save on our own ttrnn we can occvpl

An equitable settlement on tlie basis of
our absolute ludfpendence and equal right
of all accounts of the public debt uud
public Kindt, and tho advantages uccruing
from foreign treaties.
These provisions, we apprehend, com
prisa the minimum of what wc must re
quire before we lay down our arms. That
Is to say, the North must yield all we
nothing. Tito whole pretention of that
country to prevent by force the separation
of the States must be abandoned, which
will be equivalent to an avownl that onr
enemies were wrong Irom the first, and, of
course us they waged a causeless and wick
ed war upon us. they ought In strict jus
tice to be required, according to tuage In
such cased, to reimburse to us tho whole
of our expenses and losses In tho course of
that war. Whether this last proviso Is to
bo insisted upon or not, certain we arc that
we cannot have any peace at all until we
shall bo la a position not only to demand
and exact, but also to enforco aud collect
treasure for our own reimbursement out of
the wealthy cities In the enemy's country.
In other words, uulesa we cm destroy or

ernniciit we con have do peace ; and if we
can do (hat, then we ought not only to ex
