Ma. President: I feincertly regret to
know that any gentleman en this floor
objects to the introduction cf a bill de
signed to relieve our soldiers and their
families. Until a few days ago I did
not dream of any opposition to such a
noble and philanthropic iue-ure I
could not think the soldier of our Te -ritory
had a man here who wj'.J be so
lost to the high and exalted emotions cf
patnotifem as to refuse to vote mem or
their families a dollar !
In the commencement of this mighty
strule for Freedom and free institu
lions, the Federal halls echoed this same
traitorous cry: "net a man, nor a dollar
for ihe war !" And still our ears are a
luted by a similar cry in effect. If such
. . f
men could have exercised their feeling?
no voice weuld have been heard, or hand
uplifted to repel the attacks of rebels on
the Flag of -our country ; and, instead of
that flag, now waving over nearly, if not
all, the States of the South, it would be
trailing in the dust, at the fset Jeff.

No favor to the soldiers can be expect

postponed ! It was not even treated with

ing the consideration of the Council.
For the sake of the reputation of this
honorable body, I hope that record may

consists of salt pork and beans, a lit'le
rice and hominy, fresh, blue, sticky beef

the damp, cold, mother earth, with one
pair of shoddy blankets drawn around hi
weary limbs, and the "music to lull him
into the arms of the god of sleep is the
cold, biting, mournful sighing of the pass

cation's efforts to sustain itself the slave

The argument is fallacious, and only con

Our Territory to day is nearly, or en
tirely, out cf debt. We have "bread
enough and to spare." The plea of pov

us have opened their bowek of compas

have kept ours shut up, and contented
our?elves with saying, be ye "warmed

bill will withdraw their objections, and
lhat it will receive that consideration
which its importance demands. Let the
defenders of cur country have a real and
substantial evidence of our appreciation
of their services. But what is the ob

assigned for the course of the gentlemen
on the other side of the Housa, which
is: "There is business of more impor

rived in this city from Milwaukee, en
route for the new and important position
to which he ha3 been called the com
mand of the Military Division of Mis
souri, comprising the Department of Ar
kansas, Missouri, Kansas and the North
west. Throughout' the war Gen. Pope
has been characterized by zeal, devotion,
and a singleness of purpose lo tiie cause
of the country. These qualities were
severely tried in the events that follow
ed his command in Virginia. The his
torian of the war will find few mdivicual
instances of more noble patriotism, than j
the spectacle of this officer retiring from
the ill starred field of failure on the
Rapidan, not sullenly and sulkily to air
his grievances before the people and re
sent being ordered to a lesser and com
paratively unimportant department, but
with a zeal and determination carried
into every act to actjuit himself in every
thing fur the country and the caue.
He was willing to leave to histcry bis
redress of Hju.-tice, and the events have
hosts of Lee. General Poprj in his late
Department has set an example which
enhanced by his connection with a com-
mand that at the outset premised to be
barren of all laurels. While
gratulate him on this conceded justice to
his merits, it is even more gratifying and
on broader grounds to see him placed in

When Abraham Lincoln took the chair
of the Presidency of the United States",
he promised in his flat-boat lingo to "run
the machine as he found it." Whether
he has strictly kept his promise, those
may doubt who choose to consider the
subject. It is enough for us to know,
that whether running his machine"
in the pathway of his predecessors, or
not, he has run with a stern, inflexible
purpose, a bold, steady hand, a vigilant.
active eye, a sleepless energy, a fanatic
Upirit, and an eye single to his eud
conquest emancipation. He has called,
around him, in counsel, the ablest and
most earnest men uf his country. Where
he has lacked in individual ability,learn
ing, experience or statesmanship, he has
sought it, andha3 found it ih the able
men about him, whose assistance he
unhesitatingly accepts, whose power s
he applies to the advancement of the
cause he has undertaken.
In the Cabinet and tha field he has
consistently and fearlessly pressed on
ths search for men who could advance
his cau-e, and has as unhesitatingly cut
eff all those who clogged it with weak
ness, timidity, imbc-c.lity or failure.
Force, energy, brains, earnestness, he
has collected around him in every de
partment. Blackguard and buffoon as
he is, he ha? pursued his end with an
energy as until ing as an Indian, and a
singleness of purpose that might almost
be called patriotic. If he were not an
unscrupulous knave in his end, and a
fanatic in his political views, he would
undoubtedly command cur respect as a
ruler, so far as we are concerned
Abroad and at home, he has exercised
alike the same ceaseless energy and cir
