I researched these articles when writing my thesis (available above). Publication does not imply endorsement. I share these articles to show what was being said in the press of that day.

Article titled “The Government and the Press” copied from the New York World in the October 18, 1862, Los Angeles Star.

Our free strictures upon arbitrary arrests have drawn out intimations from certain high quarters in Washington that if we continue this sort of comment it will be at our peril.
We can believe that much folly rules there, but this seems almost incredible. It cannot be that any branch of our government seriously intends to open a war upon the loyal press—least of all to begin by assailing one which, from the outset, has labored with peculiar zeal to uphold the President, and inspire confidence. If there is a press in the country which can fearlessly appeal to its record for proof of thorough fidelity to the principle of this war, as originally set forth by the administration, it is this journal. To the utmost of our power we have quickened the people to a sense of the vital character and infinite issues of the contest—have repelled all suggestions of surrender or compromise—have combatted faction, and every disorganizing influence—have cheered in adversity, and admonished in prosperity—and, in every way possible, have endeavored to sustain and strengthen our rulers under their mighty responsibilities.
We have conscientiously believed that the support of the administration involved the support of the cause, and have been almost as reluctant to reflect upon the one as upon the other.
In this spirit we have shut our eyes to much that, in our sober judgment, was worthy of blame—believing that almost any evil was less injurious than distrust, and hoping that time would amend all errors.
Time did not amend them. It aggravated them. When it at last brought the arbitrary arrest of loyal men, we could hold our peace no longer. Faithfulness to the cause forbade it. To our mind, such a violation of the law and justice was contrary to every principle this war seeks to vindicate. It was robbing loyal minds of their highest ideas, and loyal hearts of their holiest supports.
It was arming the rebels with new arguments. It was providing foreigners with new sneers. It tended to nothing but discouragement, disgrace and ruin. We protested against it. We shall continue to protest against it. We shall protest against all things like it. From this time forth we shall do our whole duty in respect to this administration. We shall criticise without reserve—approving and condemning, applauding and denouncing, as freely as in days of peace. The conviction has been forced upon us that so only can we fitly discharge our duty to the country in its awful perils.
The people are now realizing the bitter consequences of undue confidence in the management of the administration. The abandonment of free criticism, which followed the disaster at Bull Run, and the disposition to trust everything to the discretion of the President, have terminated in an accumulation of disaster and disgrace that appalls and sickens every heart. Magnificent armies beaten, incomputable treasure wasted, two hundred thousand lives sacrificed, the capital still beleaguered, the border states lost, loyal states menaced with invasion—all this, too, when the enemy started with an almost absolute destitution of every war-necessity, and is still imperfectly equipped, ragged, and half famished—it is enough to drive even calm men mad. Considering the available means and the actual results, it is the most disgraceful failure recorded against any government in modern history.
And this is the requital of the people’s confidence. This is the fruit of deferential silence when ABRAHAM LINCOLN chose to relieve his subordinates by making haste to assume responsibility. It is high time that this passiveness were ended. The people are lost if they do not henceforth form their own conclusions, and make them respected. They have got to exercise a constant vigilance, an unsparing criticism, and an untiring pressure. Public opinion must develop and consolidate itself, and take a shape so formidable that no living man or set of men, in Washington or out of it, will dare defy it.
This is more necessary because, contrary to every precedent in a responsible government, whether monarchial or republican, Mr. Lincoln makes no change in his cabinet. There is not a ministry in Europe which could hold power a day after such a period of disasters as has befallen our present rule. There is not a throne that is stable enough to bolster up incompetency so palpably demonstrated. Aberdeen and Newcastle [of Britain] had to resign for mismanagement in the Crimea not a hundredth part so gross, or so damaging.In all such cases, it is not only the need of securing able men that prompts the change, but the importance of giving the nation a substantial pledge of a new policy. President Lincoln disregards all such considerations. He keeps those in his highest administrative trusts who have utterly forfeited the confidence of the people. We say, then, that this strange persistency in retaining men who have been tried and found wanting, imposes a still higher obligation upon the public mind to be watchful and outspoken.
The press, as the chief organ of public opinion, can no longer shrink from its duty in expressing and enforcing that opinion. We believe that if it will faithfully and fearlessly do its appropriate work, it will be morally impossible for inefficiency to keep its ground.
Everyone familiar with the history of the rebel confederacy, knows that it was the rebel press mainly which compelled President Davis to change his Secretary of War after the rebel disasters of the spring, and forced upon him the aggressive policy which is now developing itself with such wonderful success and prestige. That press used no blandishments, and practiced no reserve. It was thoroughly penetrated with the feeling that its cause was lost unless there were a change, and it thundered its denunciations....
There is no mistake about it, President Lincoln and his chosen advisers must be less tenderly dealt with. They must be held more sternly to their responsibilities. They must be made to feel something of the dreadful earnestness which surcharges the heart of the people. They must learn to respect the rights of the people, and to treat the people as their masters and not as their servants. They must tolerate freedom of loyal speech, and renounce all ideas of intimidating the loyal press.
