The New York IWtmne telle the story of a
New York farmer, who paid ft Tlalt to a soldier
son stationed at Saflblk, the capital of Nanse-
monil county, In Virginia. There mi plentj
of forage In sight, but It wat the property ol
rebels and conld not be touched. The Got-
ernment borers and mulea were therefore eat
ing hay brought from the North and costing
at Suffolk not less than forty dollan per ton.
The thing has one redeeming feature, which
the New York larmer doea not notice, and that
It, that there may hare been sundry good
profits In furnishing this hay.
We are undoubtedly a rich nation, but it It
now discovered Chat our wealth Is not bound

I arrived bar yesterday morning by the
New London route from Boston in the steamer
" City ol New York "which, with the steamer
" City of Boston," makes that new and deserv
edly popular line. No soch perfect boat are
to be found on any Inland water navigation in
the world. They are complete In every ap
pointment of comfort and luxury. For quiet
and cool night's rest, they are far superior to
the hotels In our noisy cities.
During my week's trip to New England, I
heard different opinions from well-informed
persona, as to the practicability of raising the
quota assigned to New England of the 300,000
men lately called for, without raortlog to the
distasteful process of drafting. Those who
were the most hopeful on the subject, had
doubts whether they could bo raised In suffici
ent season, without drafting. Much will de
pend upon the course of current events, and
upon the degree ol change In IU policy which
the Administration may manliest. I do not
peak without consideration and pretty good
means of knowing, In saying that the people of
New England are thoroughly satisfied that the
further prosecution of the war upon the lait
policy of the Administration Is utterly idle.
Their readiness to aid In the war will therefore
be exactly proportioned to the change of that
policy, of which they may be able to see the
They are hopeful of such a change, and will
be still more so, now that they hare learned
that the President hss Issued a proclamation
under the sixth section of the confiscation law.
That Is a most Important step, and will serve
to soften the regret and disappointment at Ihe
President's courso in not giving notice to the
slaves of rebels escaping Into our lines, that the
law of the land guarantees their freedom. The
suspicion was thereby created that that law
would be silently and practically nullified by
the failure of the Executive to enforce it, just
as another law has been for nearly a year; I
mean the act of August C, 1861, giving freedom
to all slaves used for the purposes of the rebel
lion. But the proclamation of the President
under the sixth section of the confiscation law,
has n better look and excites new hopes. It Is
not Impossible that the President may have is
sued it earlier than he otherwise would have
done. In consequence of perceiving that bis
action in the other particular was altogether
unsatisfactory to the loyal portion of the coun
try. The time for soft words has gone by. The
people are determined that this war shall be
waged in earnest or shall be stopped. The ex
pression from Ihe commercial men and capital
Ists of this commercial metropolis, just made to
the President, excites no surprise In my mind.
As there Is no place so much Interested In the
preservation of the Union, so there Is no point
where a vigorous prosecution ol the war will
be so sternly Insisted upon as here. I pre
dicted, la an address which I delivered in Wash
ington in Dtcember I860, that, contrary to all
the then existing appearances to tbo contrary,
It wonld be the city of New York which would
finally be the most determined upon a war with
the rebels, when it came to be seen that the re
belllon could not be put down without war.
It is upon the same view of the case, that I
have never doabted that it would be the city
of New York which would most unanimously
demand the overthrow of slavery, when it came
to be teen that without that overthrow, a res
toration of the Union is impossible. Wall street
wonld have preferred compromise to fighting
at the outset, and after the fighting commenced
Wall street hoped to see the Union restored "as
It was." But Wall street means to have the
Union restored at all events, and will sacrifice
slavery, or anything else, which stands In the
Publlo attention Is being everywhere called
to the lolly of raising new regiments for the
war, while the old ones remain mere skeletons
It is really a waste of nearly the whole expen
diture of men and money which It Involves
It Is a waste of the whole of that expenditure,
so far as immediate service is concerned.
A Successful Foraoinu Partt. A few days
ago Quartermaster Sergeant Stiles, of the First
District regiment, (saw la Bank's division,) ac
companied by a squad ol men, started out on
a foraging expedition Irom Little Washington.
After proceeding about twelve miles Into the
country, In a retired spot, situated In a notch
of the mountains, they were astonished to find
in a large enclosed field a herd of very fine
horses, some fifty in number. The herd, ap
parently, was In cbarg i of an old negro mai,
who upon being Interrogated as to whom they
belonged, replied th it they had been left there
some time ago by n person, whose namo he
did uot know, but supposed that he was an
agent of the "seceshers," as he disappeared
about the time an army made their appearance
in the neighborhood. Many or Ibe horses were
oolts, which bad not been broken. The "boys,"
who bod their train filled with forage, and it
being late in the afternoon when the discovery
was made, could not bring the horses along
that day, but returued the next day, and con
fiscated the whole heard, which, alter a great
deal of trouble, (most of the animals belog
very wild and ungovernable,) they succeeded
in bringing them into camp.

The Star, of last evening, says that the fol
lowing order has been Issued by the head of
one of the publlo offices:
Wa&uiiotov. July 24, 1SG2.
I regret to be Informed that clerks la this
office are frequently Incommoded by the India
erect conversation of their Tallows, and that the
prosecution of their duties Is Interfered with by
the nertlnacllv wherewith debatable oninions
are dogmatically enunciated during business
It Is painful to realize that men enioving the
emoluments and ease of civil offices, far re
moved from danger, Indulge the unmanly prac
tice of criticising the courage and discretion of
officers In the army who are devoting their
energies and sacrificing health and life to the
cause of the country.
nunnoaesire to restrain tne independent
expression of orlrate opinion on all Droner oc
casions, I am conscious of the unfavorable
enect upen tne prosecution or business which
results from gratuitous declarations unlavora
ble to those cordial relations which should be
cherished among fellow clerks, while I deem
open censures upon men in civil or military
offices as Indications of a waul of rcewct for the
President of the United States, who Is pre
sumed to be discreet and patriotic, and sensi
ble of his responsibilities. During business
hours, the clerks of ttih office are expected to
pursue that plain path ol duty which cannot be
mistaken, and to avoid discussions of doubtful
propriety and pernicious tendency.

In the sixteenth century. By tbe middle of
mat veniury lue aDonginees oi tne west in
dies had disappeared, and their places were
occupied by Africans, who were introduced
about this period In very large numbers
throughout the Spanish and Portuguese pos
sessions In South America. It was but shortly
subsequent that English adventurers embarked
successfully In the slave trad, wblob they
Jursusd under charters from Elizabeth and
The first negro slaves were Imported Into
Virginia In lbl'i, where they numbered about
2,000 In 1070. It is believed that the ftrst slave
ship fitted out In the Kngllsh colonies sailed
from Boston In IMG. In 1C24 the French Intro
duced slaves Into their Island or SL Christo
pher, and soon after Into Martinique and Gua
deloupe, and shortly established slavery In all
their American oolonles. The Dutch embarked
tn tbe trafflo with other UvUlied nation; so
that the conclusion is laevitable that all the en
lightened nations of the world who enjoyed
any extended commerce simultaneously parti,
cipated In a trade now deemed contraband,
and towards whlcb the world la now as equally
united In hostility. Had slavery continued to
expand In numbers In other parts of America
as It has grown In tho United States, thsre
would, at the present time, be more than 31,
000,000 of this class of persoes in the United
mates ana me uritisn, French, Hpanlsh, and
Brazilian possessions. It is believed, however.
that In all American countries and Islands of
our seas, except in the United States, tbe num
ber of slaves was only maintained from time to
ume uy me prosecution oi tne slave trade.
While slavery In North America extended, in
177J, from and Including the Canadian provin
ces to Florida, Its northern limit has been
gradually contracting, while indications clearly
point tn Its western termini, which have doubt
less been already attained. The Importation or
slaves m me unuea Biaies was interdicted br
law In 1808. In 1J7 the legislature of Rhode
Island Interdicted the Importation or slaves In
to that colony, and tbe next year enacted a law
ot emanolpatton by declaring the children of
an siave momera to ue uorn, iree. aiaasaonu
cetia abolished slavery, by her bill or rights,
in 17t0. In 1784 I'onnootlcut barred the Intro.
ductlon or slaves, aud declared all born after
me ist in juarcn oi mat year tree at the age
of twenty-six. Pennsylvania, In 1780, by law,
prohibited tho iutroduetlon or slaves, and de
clared free all children of slave mothers born
thereafter. Virginia prohibited the Introduc
tion of siavos from abroad In 1778; Maryland
In 17s I. New Hampshire abolished slavery Ih
itvi-, igw ivia iu itvj, new jersey in loiu.
Such has been the Droeress and decline ot Af.
rican slavery In our country, where Its severi
ties have been humanity compared with other
oountriea, and where, although among the last
10 oiing io me institution, tne tramo in this
class of persons was first seriously, as It has
been persistently, opposed. It may not be out
ol place to alato that tbe American States,
which. In the past century, abolished slavery,
permitted tbe freo colored population to enjoy
every right consistent with their condition as
a class, and allowod bond and free to remain,
during their natural lives, in the State or col
ony whero they lived. This fact, although
sometimes questioned, can be demonstrated
beyond cavil; and the contrary can only be
urged by suou as aro unfamiliar with the sub
ject or bavo an object In the misrepresentation.
The plan of gradual emancipation probably
tended to this result, us those who were living
in bondage continued te lie slaves, while thalr
descendents were generally to become tree at
such periou as luey were quauueu to maintain
thoir own existonce by labor.
An examination of the relatlie number at
diirerent successive periods, until slavery bo
comes extinct, must fead todonciuslons that no
material deportation of slaves ocourred shortly
before or after the passage or emancipation
acts a ract which cannot be controverted; and
whtlo It must be conceded that the northern
people prosecuted the slave trade at an early
period v lib energy and thrill, they are entitled
lo the award of sincerity and honesty In giving
tho earliest examples of the abolition of the
institution oi slavery wituin tneir own Dor
A new clement has been developed by the
present census, viz: that of tbe statistics of
negro slavery among the Indian tribes west of
Aritansaa, comprising tne unociaw, tmeroKee,
Creek, and Chickasaw nations; also tho num
ber ot white and free colored population scat
tered tbrouzh those tribes: all of which, with
an estimate Irom the most rellablo souroea of
tne wuoie numner oi auorigines, will bo round
appended to mo population tables. My refer
eiioo to this table, it will appear that tho
Choctaws held 2,207 negro slaves, distributed
among 33.1 ownors: the Cherolcees 2. Ml. hsld
by Mi uwuers; Ihe Creeks l.Gol, owned by
2t,7 Indians: mid tbe ChlckasawH 017 to tin
owners. As, uudor all the circumstances of
slavery everywnere, too Bervlle race- la tery
uuoqually distributed, bo will appear to be the
caso with the Indian tribes. While one Cboo

Among tbe Cliorolcees, the largest proprietor

population of Indiana In the tribe to slaves as
about nine to one. ' Among tbe Creeks, two
bold 7.1 slaves eaoh; ten own 433, while the ra
tio of slaves to the whole number of Indians
varies but Utile from that with the Cherokees.
Tbe largest proprietor among the Cblckasaws
holds id slaves; ten own 275, or an average of
27, while the average Is nearly eight to each
owner In the tribe, and ono to eaob 51 Indlars
In tbe tribe. It thus appears that, in those
tribes, there ure nearly eight Indians to each
negro slave, and that the slaves form about 121

Semlnoloa, although like the tribes above
mentioned, transplanted from slaveholdlng
States, holds no slaves, but Intermarry with
tho colored population. These tribes, while
they present an advanced state of civilization,
and some or them bavo attained to a condition
or comfort, wealth, and refinement, form but a
small portion of tbe Indian tribes within the
