Hie i’eat of au excited political efturpsign will only render it the more formidable and difficult to overcome. It will be a topic of discussion on evety Rtuinp in (he Presidential campaign, now in progress. Bo that it will be impossible for Lincoln to pre vent ti,e orators of the McClellan party from influencing the people to resist the draft The opposition as heretofore is not fugitive and limi ted, but organized and general npported by the power and influence of a great party, con testing with Lincoln the succession to the Presidential chair The importance of this hostility to *he draft i become* evident, when we remember that the term of servlca of a iarne portion of tho pres ent Federal armies will soon expire,. Their places must be filled by new troops, or the armies intended for our subjugation will melt j away. Lincoln must enforce his draft or be j defeated. Aud yet there is less likelihood of his success than ever before It is plain, too, that reluctant troops forced into the service ngidnst their lonvicti'.ns and their will can uot be as effective as those veteran voluuieeis, whose place* they are dratted to fill. The South has more men In tl,e field now than she ever had before.

A biief armiaiicH has been proposed by G9n. Sherman and accepted by Gen. Hood. Doubt ess to both armies, the temporary cessation cf hostilities i* a relief. Speculations as to the 1 meaning of the proposal on the part of Gen. i Sherman are largely indulged in. To us it ap- - pears quite clear that he desired time to re or gnaize his army, and survey the situation. lie is not at this time prt pared to advance. The me oi service of a large number cf iris men is -bout to expire—has Already expired. Ten lays will enable him to comprehend the condi 'ton of iris army, and to see his way to tho-sue •* ssire step* of the campaign which are yet to I*l rakon. There is some confusion in his rear.

Johnson, issued from hi* headquarters in Kentucky, summoning all the citizens resid itig within particular boundaries to report at their respective county towns for duty in the j Confederate service. A glance at the map will : show that fully one third of tho State is com- | prised within the limits specin-d in the order, j which we have aireadv published. The call in j question is not a mere idle vaporing of an iin- : potent voice—» brutum fuliptn which a parly ! issuing has no expectation of seeing emorce.i; j it is a bena fide order, proceeding from author- i ity competent to the enforcement of its com- j n*ands. We make this statement, not because i we believe that our Government has at ita dts- i posal a force which may bs sent into Kentucky i strong enough to sustain the order which Col i Johnson has given, but because of the thor- I ouch revolution in popular feeling which has taken place in the State. From the best in formation which we can gather from Kenturfi ;ana whose opportunities for knowing public opinion in ih-*ir State at tho present time are most * tisfactory, we believe that if the true sentiment of the people there were .now ex pressed, seven eighths of the population w< aid be in favor of uniting their destinies with those of the Southern Confederacy. Ketttu ky has been brought to fhiz. through a very bitter experience. In the be ginning of the war Lincoln bamcoosiled her with the idea that “no hostile foot should tread her soil." Under the pretext of main taining an 'farmed neutrality,” heme guards were organtetet ia many kealities. These were soon HS»-mbied in campa and many <.f ti ear seduced into the Federal service The men who had given tone to pubiio sentiment were —with a tew illustrious exception* zoi-.n bribed into toe support of the Abolition dy nasty. or awed into silence by the terrors of the bar-'i’e. When the chsina were fully riv eted upon the people, the mask wa* thrown off. anil those who flittered themselves that th v would at b-a*t be excused from being participants iu a tvar against their Southern tiK-tiiren, were cooky informed that there would be no neutrality ; 'hat (hey weie citi zens of the United Stan s anil must fight against her enemies! Romocstvauc* whs vai .. Miebt mad -right Hundreds o pei*oue, .like Gov More head, who were not prepared to bov? before the rod of their oppressor, were slmt up in prisons or baflsbed f r «m the Stc-te— many of them rrtnaioing in exile to this day. Tho ivr tit’s h*el once upon the 'State, ho has" continued bis oppressors without com punction. A convention of the people esse .»- bled to devise some measures of deliverance from their troubles is promptly dispersed by Federal bayonets—every, delegate threatened with summary vengeance if he did not retire. The order for the conscription of blsvcs is issued, and Governor Bramlctle makes some slight show of resistance. But a trip to Wash ington in which a bag of gold or a birth in Fort Lafayette—probably the former—is sha ken at him, and the redoubtable Governor returns home and becomes profoundly quiet The slaves arc conscripted and sent off to fight against our artflies. Then comes the order for the removal to Central America of thousands of helpless women and children who though they cannot fight with sword and gun have U9cd their tongues so effectively as to strike terror to the heart of the tyrant. But Kentucky at last is aroused. Her peo ple, brave and confiding in the aggregate, have had their eyes open to discover the cheat which has been practiced upon them by the unprinci pled party hacks whom they have heretofore been too ready to trnst. They know now how much faith Is to bo placed in the promises of Abolition rulers, and how much liberty they * may promise themselves under their sway. As the serpent which is trodden in the dust will .sting from its very instinct the foot which crushes it, the people of—Kent icky are at length compelled to rise against their oppres sor. Col. Johnson’s order wiil be respected. tVa look fc-r such a rising of the people in K ntucky at no distant day *s wiil convince tho Abolitionists that the fire of retell ion instead ol being exoaguished is bursting out in anew place. Thoueh cut off for the time from communication with our friends there, wo hope roon to see Tennessee and Kentucky ma king a department whose history shall rival tha* which baa bees written for the Trans -1 Mississippi. United States Postage.—Parties ia the norm try and in some of the cit ies of the South, whore correspondence require* the use oi United States postage, are imposed upon by mistaking tha e.ld cancelled stamps for the new stamp which supc ceded it more than a year ago.— The former is worth less for the transportation cf postal matter, and the new stamp is alone recogn : *“d. Hundreds of letters pass thtough the thg bureau with the worthless stamp upon them, and of course thev are "dead letters 7 ’ upon reaching Richmond. Certain parties are trafficking in the cancelled stamp, rre understand, and this paragraph is intended bo put the public on its guard aswinst the de ception. It is bad enough to have to pay a Confederate dollar for a three cent United State* postage stamp, without get’ing a bad one in the bargain The genuine United Stat"* stamp is a'most square in shape, with the bust of Washington ia the’ceatre, “U 8 postage” at the top, ‘•Th'-re cents” at the bottom, the tLure "3” on be two upp >r, and the letters • U. » v eu the two lower owners Lkk and Cauocn Cor- tC. cr.r* —We lear* tha* Judge C.a-- sa* c-dercd the ad) urnment of Lee and Caihou" Gcurig , until the ••Courts ; n cou-se ’’ -oe ww—- | the Emperor of A’b.Vcginia fcul hi* j hand to Qacaa Victoria, te- - " -li nlAii vi 5! . •' H* -. *v-.v ■ 1 O Mn : t ! . te-vhK.v : . ■ha! wear: .--t f ;rt r ter first , f Hood, thdflpjg s- failure >'■ • . • - •Tun 'te>ro -*'i In ;- up -so cu - ~ : my from th« l : ae of :.i . ; v-<., ,-into ah ui icq A’l-i i . • . , u withdraw >X:i!i' 1 f. .*.- the city atipr ’u.«rit that .. . |.\ ii .
