THE rRESIIlEXT'S PROCLAMA
TION. The furce of the President's list procla
mation will be understood by examining tho
provisions of the act to which he refers. By
the fifth provision it was made the duty of
the President " to caue tho seizure of nil
the estate and property, money, stocks,
credits and effects" of sundry classes of per
sons, and " to apply and use the same for
ths support of the army of the United
States." These classes embraced persons
who, after the passage of the oc.should have
acted officially in the service ot the so-called
"Confederate State?, or of States liclonging
thereto, or hate taken the oatli to support
the constitution of the so-called Confederate
States, also persons who, owning property in
any loyal State or Territory or in the Dis
trict of Columbia, shall after the passage ot
the act " assist, and give aid and comfort to
the rebellion." All sales, transfers and
conveyances ofany such property by the
previous oh uer n utrciaicu uuu auu tuiu ,
and any suit brought by such person to re
cover the property, is effectually barred by
allecinz and proving that the claimant is
one of the persons specified in the section.
In reference to these traitorous officials,
and the traitorous abetters of treason and re
bellion also who reside in loyal States, no
special notice is required. For them the
act took effect from its passage. But the
sixth section provides that ' any person
within any State or Territory of the United
States, other than those (viz. loyal States,
&tt.) named as aforesaid, who after the pas
sage of the act being engaged in armed re
bellion," shall not tcithin sixty days after
public warning and proclamation duly given
and made by the President of tho United
States, cease to aid, countenance and abet
such rebellion and return to his allegiance to
the United States" shall come under the
penalty specified in the fifth section, and it
shall be the duty of the President" to seize
and use the property of such individual as
before provided. That Proclamation and
warning the President has now made, and
the sixty days of grace for all to whom the
section refers, began to run from and after
the 25th day of July, 1S62. Its effect on
multitudes in the rebel States mut be great.
A HAD PLAN.
There are grave objections to the plan of
obtaining recruits by the bounty system, now
so extensively on trial throughout New Eng
land and New York.
1. It does not always prove as speedy
and effective as might' be expected the
recruit whose patriotism needs the spur
of a bounty, being often apt to bang
back, in order to see if tho offer of fifty dol
lars extra will not be made a hundred, if
necessary, in order to secure him, sni then,
if a hundred will not be made one hundred
2. It unavoidably creates jealousy among
the troops already enlisted or in the field,
to find that one result of their early response
to the country's call is that they receive
smaller compensation than their more tardy
3. Its appeal is to mercenary rather than
to patriotic motives : and the class of recruits
eo secured is not always the most desirable.
4. It has been known to encourage deser
tions men deserting from their regiments
to enlist again elsewhere, and thus to secure
the bounty over and over again.
5. It adds enormously to the expense
of the war.
C. OurState already-pays its soldiers better
than an; other. The extra pay of seven dol
lars a month orcr and chore the Government
pay and bounties, is in effect a bounty of tiro
hundred and fifty-two dollars for the
three years term of service. Tho cost to the
Stste of this most liberal provision will be,
if we keep our contingent of 10,000 men in
the field, 840,000 per annum. nearly one
million dollars a year for a State whose tc
til expenditnrts, before tho war, have ntver
equalled (iro hundred thousand a year. Is it
It'm to add still farther to this expense by
the offer of town or county bounties ?
THE WAIt MEETING, j
In spite of tho rain, the Town Hall was
erowded to overflowing Mondayevening.Theie
was a fair sprinkling of ladies, and a num
ber of citizens of tho Towns around us, in the
crowd, which filled every seat and inoat of
the standing room in tLe Hall, while many
went from the doors unable to gain an en
trance. The meeting was called to order by Hon.
Daniel Roberts, and Lieut. Gov. Underwood
was chosen President, and Wm. II. Hoyt,
Esq.. Secretary of the meeting. Mr. Un
derwood, with a remark or two on the im
portance of the crisis and the duty ol the
State to fulfil its pledge of support to the
government to the last man aud lat dollar,
introduced Hon. F. E. Woodbmdoe, of ei
genncs. Mb. Woodbridge's Spiich.
Mr. Woodlridge, after some re-narks com
plimentary to the gentlemen wIk) were to
succeed him as speakers, went into a brief
review ol some of the issues of years past ;
the original forwKan of the Union ; the
constitutional guarantees lor SIaery ; the
doctrine of nullification; and the question
of slavery in tho territories He said his
views on slavery were those of Vermont. Ic
is a curse which destroys the reor Is where it
exists ; but he believed that slavery bad re
ceived its death wound. In God's own time
it would die and there he would leave it. It is
oor duty now to let pats these old issues,
Our flair is now to be sustained. caro
fighting for " Liberty and Union one and in
separable" and until it is secured he thanked
God that Ho would not let us have peace,
Vermont has done well. Ho had been one of
a commission to attend to some state matters
at Washington, in the course of which a
little difference between them and the Treas
ury Department had arisen. Mr. Edmunds
had clearly, and as it turned out, effectively.
presented the views of the commission in a
paper, which was handed to Secretary Chaso
with the remark that it could hardly be ex
pected that the representatives of so small
and insignificant a Stata as Vermont could
alter the decision of the Deiartment.
Mr. Chaw's reply was " Let me te'l you,
Gentlemen, that in this business Vermont is
the sVmncr state. If any Stato deserves the.
consideration of the Government it is that
State, and you may thank God that you
have the honor to belong to it." Vermont
has her reputation to sustain. He did not
doubt that the rebels had an army of
"50,000 men raised by conscription. They
outnumbered us. McClellan had 0.000 op
posed to 125,000 disciplined troops besides
the conscripts. Whatever mistakes he might
have made, McClellan bad made a masterly
retreat. To his skill and the valor of the best
army the suu ever shone on, was their es
cape from utter annihilation due. The re
bils would not wait, nor can we. We must
go to the rescue now. Tim spirits of the just
made pcrfci t beckon us on. Th bones of
the Pati iot fathers cry to us lroui the ground
The speaker proceeded in an animated vein
to urge his hearers to stand by the flag.
Hon. Paul Dillingham was next introduced
its.. dilllncijaii's srsicu.
He began by showing the utter irudiuiasi
bility of the doctrine of Secession, and the im
possibility of consenting to a division ol the
Union, or ot drawing a line on which a di
vision is possible. We have got to settle this
question by force. Rebellion is mad. There
is no chance for concession or compromise,
Only the strong arm can bring us peace,
There appears to be, at present, something of
a feeling of def pondency. Wo are listening
too much to the croaUrs. We ure allowing
ourselves to give way to disappointment, le-
cause when we had onco furnished the gov
eminent all that we supposed it needed, and
had rested ourselves in full confidence of
a speedy victory, we are told that the same
thing has to be done over again. All this is
wrong. The trouble is, that we have failed
to realize the magnitude and resources of the
rebellion ; but now that our eyes are open
are we going to quake or hesitate? Are we
ready to own that we cannot subdue these
Mistakes may have been made by our
Generals, and President and Secretary,
They are human. But have they not
tried to do their best? Should you or I
have done better? We must now enlist our
energies anew. We must tako hold of the
business us we used to of our political con
tests ol yore. Wo must go from house to
house, and canvass our towns. The Gov.
ernment does not need money nor muni
tions. It wants men with stout hearts and
arms. i e are not going to bold back. it e
are not cowards, though there are some
whose courage needs nursing. Let the
young men, who wish the stamp of honorable
manhood, go lorth. Let the fathers talk
over with their sons, and wives with their
husbands. Let our women show their power
as they hare at the South. Let tho mother
buckle on tho harness for her boy. Let tho
maiden say, I wish a hero for a husband. If
our hearts are in the matter we cannot fail
Mr. Dillingham made an excellent and el
fective speech, and was abundantly ap
CHAPLAIN WOODWARD'S SrXECU.
Chaplain Woodward of the 1st Vt. Cav
alry, next took the stand amid a doublo
round of applause. He said ho had come
back for a few days, expecting to find Ver
mont awake as when he left, when more
men were oliering than could lie
cepted. He was surprised to find
that it was hard enlisting, .and that
there was even talk of impressing men. Why
is this ? Have we forgotten that the past
year has seen a series of victories of our arms.
such as the world never saw? Eight weeks
ago, and leading Virginia rebels told him
they felt their cause must fail.
But we have had sjme reverses. We weio
driven from the Shenandoah valley. True ;
but it took 32,000 rebels to driyo out our
5000, and they held the ground but three
weeks. Our armies aro now in advance of
their former conquests. So there has been a
naval disaster at Vicksburgh, and a retreat
at Richmond. But where is the spirit of
Vermont ? Are we the iop'e that can stand
no disaster? Now is the time to show our
manhood. These reverses were to be expect
ed. Our army is scattered over a wide ex
tent of conquered territory. The rebels have
concentrated their forces. Our policy is now
to be changed to meet theirs and success will
again follow our banners. We must not ad
mit for a moment that the rebellion can suc
ceed. We must rise to the magnitude ot tbo
emergency. Our sons and brothers are on
the field. Outnumbered they stand to their
arms, and hold the ground which will be
crimsoned with their blood unless they are
reinforced. Are we the men to stand back
and let tbcm perish ? Heaven forbid ! Let
us say, Yermont tp the rescue ! and
take our places by their side. If I,
said the speaker, were not already en
tolled, I should go to-night. I am 1
about to return, and I propose to see
through to the end. We hear much
of sending our boys. We have sent them
Our soldiers are mainly quite young men.
The army needs an element ol older men
to give strength and firmness to the spirit
of our bravo boys. The South has sent her
middle aged as well as the young ; mry
able-bodied man there is in the army. Let
tbo North do likewise and bow long can this
thing last ? Bat our farms and business de
tain us. Are we to make no sacrifices? We
must leave our farms, our law offices, our
families. We must go, not for money, not
fur glory, but for our country, to save ex
piring liberty. And e must remember
that there or herewe are in God's hands, and
that e are always safest in the uth of
Inly. He hoped to meet many of tho-e be
fore him, in the army.
Mr. Woodward's remarks were most im
pressive, iney toticueu Hie rigm spot, ami
were frequently interrupted by I In) heartiest
j. s. adaus sr-Kiai.
Mr. Adams was loudly called fur and
greeted with hearty applause. He said he
felt like entering a protest against some ol
the statements be had heard or against the
inferences to be drawn from thera. The
men ol Vermont aro not lacking in patriotism.
They are not cowardly. But when an intel
ligent jieople accustomed to free discussion
aro told that they are not ta bring their
judgment and common sense to the consider
ation ot this momentous business, that they
have no buiness to criticise the action of
our Generals or of the Government ; when
the men they have freely sent are put to
guard rebel property and left to melt away
by disease or fall upon the field with little or
no effect on the grand result ; it is no won
der they hesitate. But they sea now the
signs of a change. The clouds are begin
ning to break, and Vermont will again send
forth her sons by thousands and tens of thou
sands, lie had heard also objections to the
offering ol bounties, but there was a practi
cal view to that subject Many a man w ho
would go is tied by the care ol a lainily.
Others who would gladly but cannot go
themselves, ure ready aud willing to help
thoe who can. For himself, phvstctjl
disability prevented him from enlisting as h
Jiad longed to do . but be was willing to
contribute or to be assessed to his last cent
to help the families of those who would vol,
Mr. Adams spoke ith great earnestness
and was loudly applauded.

II. R. Campbell, Esq., said that he was
glad to hear, though just at its il.se, what
this meeting was lor. U as to fill np a
company of volunteers now two-thirds raised,
If the men to do it cannot be promptly fur
nished, he, for one. should be asham'd of toe

nish all the men that are needed he should
be ashamed of his country. We should de
serve to be called cowards and knavf. lb
had been looking into the census a little.
He found that the eleven States in lebvllion
have a free population of 5,572,212, and
slave jiopulatiou ol 3.565,007, haru.g 10UO
slaves to every 1500 white men while
portion of the Sooth via. the four States of
South Carolina, Mississippi, Alabama, and
Georgia, actually contain 3S.000 more slaves
than free men. Ten cr cent, of the free
population of the Rebel States gives them a
military force of 557,221 . They claim that
they have actually mastered S per cent.,
giving them 4 10,000, and leaving them a
reserve (of the ten per cent.) of 1 17,221 men
Against this the loyal States have a popula
tion of 21,313,227 freemen and 428,293
slaves, who are mure loyal than their mas
ters. If ten per cent, ol the free population
of these twenty-three States is called out, il
would givo an army of 2,151,922 men.
Three per cent, has been mustered, thus far,
amounting to 654,000 men ; and now one and
a half per cent, more is called for, makin;
in all 951,000 and still leaving us, ol our ton
percent., a reserve ol 1,200,000 men. In
the face of facts like these, to say that we
cannot put an army into the field that will
crush out the rebellion in 90 days, is to omn
ourselves the arrant cowards the Southerners
call us. If we don't do it, we deserve to be
rode, as we shall be, by tho slaveholders,
harder than they drive their slaves. If the
young men are not ready, let them call nn
the white-haired men. He was ready to go,
for one ; and he wished to hear no more
about Green Mountainism or Green Moun
tain Boys, till they bad vindicated their good
name, by furnishing all, and more than
was asked for, for the support of tho Gov
ernment. Mr. Campbell spuke with bis eus
toinary vigor ; and the audience applauded
him to the echo.

moved the appointment by the chiir ol a
Committee of twenty citizens to take mea
sures to raise at occe the number ot recruits
needed to li 1 up the Chittenden County
