In the President’s Proclamation he gave the rebels twenty days in which to lay down their arms and return to their allegiance. “Time” will not be “called” until next Sunday night at twelve o’clock; and until it is, good faith on the part of the Government requires that operations should be confined strictly to defence. When the days of grace expire, let all the cavilers, croakers and growlers, look out for the fur to fly; let the rebels prepare their bandages and lint, and the Southern newspapers get ready for the “mortality lists,” of which, after the Sumter affair, they were so covetous, because as sure as that the sun will rise to-morrow, Old Abe will put some of them on the broad road which men travel but one way. Meanwhile he is getting ready for a good fight.
