Sen. Hale, on the war

The following is an extract of a late speech delivered at Newport, R.I., by Senator Hale, of New Hampshire, upon the war:  —  “I don’t know what to think of the war.  I don’t know when it will end.  But I will say, and perhaps I may be sent to Fort Warren for it, — (Go on,’ said the Mayor.  ‘I will protect you’) – that nothing has equaled the energy of the Rebels, except the weakness with which we have opposed them.”
