Mahoney, of the Dubuque Herald says . . .

. . . in denunciation of the Administration and the war , and that the “people will soon open their eyes and understand,” &c.  This is a pretty good joke for Mahoney to get off at the expense of his friends.  Loyal men have always had their “eyes open,” and their “understanding” good.  But Mahoney and his traitorous crew will not get their “eyes open” until their “understanding” lets them slip through the “drop.”  Mourners will be few and scattering, like the days of Judas, but the attendance will be large. – {Indianola Visitor
