Since the rvht'llion in America culminated in
the eturming and cxipture of Fort Scsipter, no
mere important event has tran.r.ired than that
announced ly the lat advice, viz: t!ie Decree
ok KnANciPATio!, iiucd uu tlie 17th of tvj.tem-
bcr bj 1 resident Lincoln. It inaugurates a new
era in the war, and cannot help being accompa
nied hj the must uiomentous result. The
following U the report of this document, as
abbreviated bj tfie telegraph :
Wasiiixgtu.w, Sept. 22. A proclamation has been
i.-sued by the President, the substance of which is
a follows: I, Abrahim Lincoln, President of the
Unite.! States, Couinian Kr-in Chief of the Army and
Jfvyt proclaim and decl-ire tbnt hereafter, as here
tofore, the war will be prosecuted for the object of
practical! restoring the Constitutional relations
between the United .States, aud the people of the
States thereof, in which the relation of the States is
or ruay be Ji.turbeJ. It is my purpose at the next
meeting of Congress to ng tin recommend the adopt
ion of practical measures tendering pecuniary aid to
the States and people thereof, who may not be in
rebellion against the United States, and which !
States may then have voluntarily a Kpte.l, or may !
voluntarily adopt, tne immediate or gra.Jur.l abolish
ment of slavery. That ou the first d iy of January,
all persons held as slaves, within any
State or part of a State, th? people whereof shall then
be in rebellion against the United States, shall be
thenceforth and forever after free. On that day the
Executive will designate by proclamation the States
and pans of States, in which the people shall be in
rebellion. Tne fict that any State or part of a State
shall on that day be in good faith represented in
Congress by members chosen by a majority of the
electors, shall, in the absence of strung countervail
ing testimony, be deemed sufSeietit evidence that
such States have not been in rebellion. The Presi
dent quotes the new article of war, approved March
COth ; also, the Uth and 10th sections of the act to
suppress insurrection an. punish treason and rebel
lion, approved July 17th ; and enj iins upon all per
sons in the military and naval service to enforce s tid
acts and section. The Executive will in due time
recommend that all loyal citizens shall, upon the
restoration of Constitutional relations, be compensa-
ted for all losses by acts of the United States, icclu- j
ding the loss of slaves. i
It is idle to predict the effects which may fol- f
low thin pro la tuition . Whatever they :iro, j
they cannot be other than of the most import
ant nature on the future of the American
Republic. It may be followed by iminediue,
certain and permanent separation between tie
north and the south, or it may hasten the sup
presion of the rebellion, by exciting the rebels
to such a desperation as to react to their own
destruction, and the total extinction of slavery
The President has held back as firmly and ts
long as it has been possible for him ; but the
fact that the proclamation of emancipation is
now issued is evidence that he is satisfied that it
is a step that is ucassari to preserve the Union.
Nine months ago, this journal stated as a result
of its observation of the current of public opin
ion throughout the North, that if the releIlion
continued to the close of 1SG2, a proclamation of
emancipation would become a military necessity.
The law of self-defense is the highest law known
on earth. The man who refrains from using
all means of eelf-defense in his power, when
attacked with weajions of death by a midnight
assassin or roblier, (on the plea that" he is a
peace man,) deserves to be robbed or butchered.
So with a nation. Any government which fails
to use every means iu its power to preserve its
national integrity, when threatened with dis
memberment, is unworthy of existence. This is
the position of the American Republic at this
moment : and no law, human or divine, no con
stitution of any kind or nature, should be
allowed to stand in the way of the natural law
The first question that will be asked, i, -What
will be the effect of the proclamation on the
slaves? While it must le admitted that the
authority of the government does not extend
over any rebel territory, except nominally, yet
it will not for that reason alone be powerless
there, llefore the first of January, 18G3, when
the decree goes into effect, the mass of the slaves
will know that by a proclamation of the govern
ment they are legally free. This must lead to
discontentment, which will everywhere develope
itself, till finally, as in the case of the enslaved
Isaelites in Eypt, their masters will fain have
liut the greatest result of the proclamation will
be this, that a decisive policy is adopted by the
American government. The question for the
North is now reduced to this, slavery and trea
son, or loyalty and freedom. Heretofore there
has been any amount of skulking by partizans
sympathizing with slavery and the rebellion,
under the plea of its being unconstitutional to
meddle with slavery. There is to bo an end to
this : and the man who henceforward stands up
for slavery because of the constitution, is a trai
tor to his country. He had letter forswear his
Country and sell his birthright.
Ml KurojHi has leeii taunting America for its
indecision on this slavery question. The procla
mation will meet the unqualified approval of the
masses in Europe, and at the same time disarm
the politicians thereof their strongest argument
in favor of a recognition of the Sjuth. There
will be no recognition or intervention in favor
of the south at present.
The coming few months will be the most im
portant and the most stirring of the rebellion.
The proclamation will excite the desperation of
the rebel leaders to its highest pitch, and the
fight will be accompanied with an energy and
terribleness not yet witnessed. Undoubtedly the
next six months will witness either the triumph
of the government, or the triumph of the rebels.
The enormous efforts now being made by loth
the contending parties to increase their fighting
resources, must soon reach their limit, beyond
which they cannot go ; and one or the other
must succumb, or acknowledge the contest use
less. This can only be the rebels.

Z2T tTp to the time the ship Henry Brigham left
San Francisco, the Yankee had not artived, though
15 days out from Honolulu. The onlj vessel adver
tised, bound this way was the ship .iuroat for
Hongkong, which probably would not leave before
the 15th to 20th of October, about which time the
Yankee would leave. . There were three Russian
steamers in port at San Francisco, recently arrived
from Kamtschatka and Sitka, among them th
Calatala, which visited this port last year. One or
of these vessels may come this way soon.
tjf We have received a sample of a new variety
of Jelly made from the Mango fruit, and sent to us
I by Judge Hitchcock, of Hilo. It is of a very supe
rior Savor, but resembling the gauva. There are
few countries which afford so many kinds of fruits
from which choice conserves can be made a9 ours,
and the abundance of the mango will soon render it
a cheap fruit for this purpose. Mr. E. O. Hall has
a supply of this jelly for sale.

tween the Federal and Rebel forces from the
12th to the 15th, in which the former constantly
gained the advantage, the latter falling back.
The only pitched battle was near Sharpsburg on
the Potomac, called the battle of Antietam,"
from the creek near which it was fought. It
took place on the 17th, and, from both Rebel
and Federal accounts, must have been a most
bloody one. The result was that the Rebels
beat a hasty retreat into Virginia, caoturin"
Harper's Ferry in their route, which in turn was
recaptured by tiie Federals, and held by the lat
ter at the latest dates. .
The Federal losses, in the engagements are
placed at about 0,000 wounded, killed and miss
ing. The Rebels admit a Iss in various ways of
about 30,000 men during their invasion of Mary
land. Of course only a part ot these were kill
ed and wounded ; probably the larger part com
prised deserters, who were glad to get free from
forced service. "When Lee crossed into Mary
land, he issued a proclamation calling the people
to arms. Only about 500 responded to him, and
all these were taken prisoners by M'Clellan.
The invasion therefore demonstrated that very
little open assistance could be obtained for the
ruliels in that state, and was attended with a loss
of nearly une-lialf of the Rebel army taken into
the state, a result which they cannot afford to
see repeated very often.
At the latest advices, M' Clellans army was
posted mainly on the northern bank of the Poto
mac, from Williamsport, which is above Har
per's Ferry, to Point of Rocks, which is Mow
that place. On the soutli side of the Potomac,
the Federal forces had Harper's Ferry, and, if
we read correctly, the whole southern side of the
river from that point to Washington, including
Ijcesburg, and Irom Washington, on the line of
the railroad leading south as far as Warrenton.
The rebels had the south hank of the Potomac
from Martinsburg to near Harper's Ferry, mak
ing their head quarters at Winchester, which
place they were fortifying as a depot, receiving
their supplies and reinforcements from Richmond
via Culpepper. Their number is supposed to be j
100,000. It is impossible to gueas how many

for new regiments have been pouring into Wsish
ington at the rate of 5,000 soldiers a day.
The above diagram will perha serve to illus
trate the relative positions of the armies. At
the latest advices, (Jen. Siegel was pushing south
from Washington via Warrenton and Thorough
fare (lap, with the design, as is supposed, t
cut off the communication between the main
body of the rebels at Winchester and Richmond.
Rut unless he had a strong force for that move
ment, it will not amount to much, for the Rebels
would probably throw all their army against
him. M'Clellan's plan was to co-operate with
Siegel, by crossing the Potomac and tno-a-in
the rebels from that quarter. From the position
in which the forces were becoming distributed,
it is evident that a battle was near at hand
either below Winchester, with Siegel, near Front
Royal, or towards the Potomac with M'Clellan.
Our nest news will probably bring intelligence
of a battle having occurred about the COth of
From the West, the news is still of an indefi
nite character, the combatants changing their
positions so often and so rapidly, that it is im
possible to say which has gained or lost by the
movements. Until the Federal forces are aug- !
merited in that secti n, affaire must remain about j
the same. j
Throughout the north, the wildest enthusiasm !
prevails. Nothing like it has existed during the
present generation. Before the end of October,
probably, the new volunteers (GOO.OOO men) will
all be in the field, which added to the old army
will swell the total to at least one million men.
(Ireat 14s this army is, the necessity which called
it out is greater. The rebellion is one of inot-t
gigantic proportions, and requires the most gi
gantic efforts to suppress it. If these fail, then
the nation must, in time, bow and acknowledge
its inability to suppress it.
The calling out of such a vast army, unusual
as it is, has occurred before, both in the history
of France and England. In the year 1813, after
twenty years war with all Euroje, France, with
a population of 23,700,000, placed in the field
an effective military force oi 800,000 infantry,
100,000 cavalry, 100,000 artillerymen and en i-
exertions, gwlng tone to the animal juices which dissolve the
! tood, strengthen every relaxed nerve muscle and fibre, and
brings the whole machinery of vitality into vigorous and health-
; ful play. Sold by all Druggists aud dealers everywhere.

Total effective men in Uie field in service fully
In the same year, 1S13, (ireut Britain, with a

Total effective force equiped and in the field. . ..1,165,5-0
Commenting on these historical fact, the New
York World says : Ihe population of the loyal
states is about 23,000,000 or 5,000,000 more
than that of Great Britain and Ireland in 1813,
and about 5,000,000 less than that of France in
1813. Our wealth and natural resources are
superior to either of those nations in 1813, and
instead of being twenty years at war, this is only
tho fifteenth month of our war, whereas France
and tlreat Britain in 1313 were both exhausted
by twenty years of war, when they placed these
vast armies of a million men in the field, armed
and equipped." The fact is that we are just as
well able to keep up this war for twenty-tw.o
years as Great Britain and France were from
1793 to 1S15. There is not the slightest occa
sion to doubt our ample power and wealth to
put down the rebellion, and to wage this war
for twenty-two years, as Great Britain and
France have done with less resources."
