Government. If it shall be tound that the
men who have been held by tbe rebels as

The disposition to be made of the slaves of

The following editorial leader, on Lincoln's
meesage, is- so remarkable arr arricler tbat we
transfer it In fall to our coTnmns: C C .w f
We are sorry'to be constrained tb acknowl
edge that tbe President's , message Is on ihe
. point, of chief HilicitQje to the, conservative
men of tbe country by do means satisfactory
Nay, the message is on this point deplorably
nnsatisfactory; . 'We jnike, the confession
frankly, because it is true, and; because it
behooves the loyal men of tbe country not
only to face the truth Confessed, but tograppU
with it instantly.
The point to which we refer is of coarse the
future policy of tbe administration with res
pect to elavery. -Concerning this point in its
principal aspect the message contains the
following passages" , t j . . i.i
'Also, obeying the dictates of prudence, as
well as tbe obligations of law, instead of tran
scending, I bave adhered to the act of Con
gress to confiscate -property ued for insar
rejlionsry pnrpoees. ,If a new law upon the
pame Fuhiect stall bfr proposed, its propriety
will be duly constat .-red- lhe Union must
be preserved, and' bi .nee all. desirable means
must, be employed.- -We should- not be in
baste to determine 'bat radical and extreme
measures, which may reach tbe loyal, as well
as the disloyal, are Indispensable." -
It is impossible to look upou this as any
thing more or less than tbe expression of an
indirect: and nam inly concurrence '.in?' the
policy asserted recently ,by 0011 Cochrane
and approved by Secretary Cameron to the
mqrtiGcatioo fandrahame of every toyal man
in Kentucky. Tbe pas?age is lacking lu
propriety as: wofelly as in statesmanship.
Tbe manner is as bad as tbe matter.54' B&t h

to understand that In the end they will.uot

cf this passage of-the--message Is, tbat net

reach of tbe people. We have faith in it, but
it should not be relied on blindly. The last

rails this mast save as. IT it does not, we
are irretiievably lost as a nation. This mode.
though hardly beyond the reach or the peo
ple, is still not directly within tbeir infl jencf.
The second mode is especially the people's
own, and through this mode we invoke the
people to pour their awakened energies with
a spirit of lofty resolve that will not be pur,
down or put aside. Here ia , tbe sphere
wherein the loyal masses or our people In
this crisis of tbe naticn's rate can work ef

The task can be performed successfully.!
Let it be performed at every cost or energy

Let this be done ; and let tbe
example be followed as promptly as possible
by Missouri andrDelaware and Western Vir
ginia, and every other Southern community,
whether large or small, that still owns the,
banner of oar country. Furthermore, let
these solemn protestations be carried to
Washington by delegations of the most emi
nent and influential citizens of the respective
communities, and be urged upon the Jrrest
dent with all the weight of exalted character
and intelligence seconded by., the power of
personal presence. Let the loyal men ef the
South rise up as one man, and tell tne tr resi
dent be knows not what he does.. Nor must
the loyal men of. the North sit inactive. Let
the enlightened journalists and speakers of
the North set forth in a strong light the facts,
first, tbat slavery is not the cause, but the
mere pretext of tbe rebellion, and, secondly:
that the policy of emancipation, if adopted
by tbe administration, would render the bare
physical suppression'of the. rebellion more
difficult infinitely, while it would make the
re-establishment of the Goverpmenf wholly
impossible. .'A ..rv-.'n-.'A

is now plain to every candid observer tbat
