C. P. BUCKINGHAM,
Adjutant General, O.
Secretary of War on the Slave
Question.
The following is the conclusion of Secretary
CAtfceoN's report, la which he discusses the
ijneetion as to how the Government should deal
with the slaves of rebels: , . M
It bis become a grave question f jr determi
nation, what ehall be done jith the slaves
abandoned by their owners .on the advance of
our troops into Southern territory, as in the
Beaofiirt dittrlot of Sooth Carolina. '.- The
whole white population is six thousand, while
the somber' oi negroes exceeas inircj-two
thousand. The panic which drove their mis
ters in- wild confusion from their home, leaves
them in undisputed possession of the soil. Shall
they , armed by their masters, be placed in the
field tofieht against ns, or shall their labor be
continually employed in reproducing the means
for euoDortinz the armies ol rebellion i
The war into which this Government has
bsen forced by rebellious traitors, ie carried on
for the purpose of , repossessing the property
violently and treacherously seized upon by the
enemies ot toe uovernment, ana to re-estaoiisn
the authority tod laws of the United States in
the placea where it is opposed or overthrown by
armed Insurrection and rebellion. Its. purpose
ie to recover and defend what is lastly its own
War, even between independent nations, is
made to subdue tbe enemy, by occupying the
hostile country, and exercising dominion over
all the men and things withinn its territory.
This being true in respect to independent na
tions at war with each other, it follows that
rebels who are laboring by force of arms to
overthrow a government, Juatly bring upon them
selves all the consequences of war, and pro
voke the destraciiun merited bv the worst of
crimes That government would be false to
national trust, and would justly excite the ridi
cule of tbe eivitized world, (bat would abstain
lrom tbe use of any efficient means to preserve
Its own existence, or to overcome a rebellious
end traitorous enemy, by sparing or protecting
the property of thoe who are waging war
gainst it.
Tbe principal wealth and power of the rebel
States is a peculiar species of property, consist
ing of tbe service or, labor of African slaves,
or the descendants of Africans. This property
has been variously estimated at the value of
from $700,000,000 to $1,006,000,000.
Why should this property be exempt from the
hazards and consequences of a rebellious war?
It was the boast of tbe leader of the rebel
lion, while he yet had seat in tbe Senate of
the United States, that tbe Southern Slates
would be comparatively safe and free from the
burdens of war, ff It should be brought on by
the contemplated rebellion, and that boast was
aooompanled by tbe savage threat that "North
em towns and cities would become tbe vlotims
of rapine and military spoil," and that "North
ern men should smell Southern gunpowder end
feel Southern steel."
No one doubts the disposition of the rebels
to carry that threat into execution. ' The wealth
of Northern towns and cities, tbe produce of
Northern farms. Northern workshops and man
ufactories, wouid certainly be seized, destroyed,
or appropriated as Military spoil. No propertv
in tbe North would be spared from the hands of
the rebels, and the rapine would be defended
upon the laws of war. While the loyal States
thus have all tbeir prope ty and possessions at
take, ere tbe insurgent rebels to carry on war
far gainst the government Id peace and se
curity to their own propertjl
Reason and justice aad self-preeervatioa for
bid that such should be the policy of this gov
ernment, but deaand, on tbe contrary, that, be
ing forced by traitors and rebels to the extremi
ty of war, all the rights sod powers of war
should be exercised to bring it to speedy
close., - , f ... . ; .1 . '- -
Taose who make war against the government
lostlv forfeit all rigbte of property, privilege
or security, derived from tbe Constitution and
laws, against Which tbe are la armed rebel
lion; and as the labor and service of their
slaves constitute the chief property of the reb
els, snob property ehould share the common fate
of war to which tbey have devoted the property
of loyal citissns. .
While it is plain that tbe slave property of
tbe South is justly subjected to all. the conse
quencee of this rebellions war,' and that tbe
Uovernment would be unwise to its trust in not
employing all the rights and powers of War to
brine it to speedy close, the details or the
plan for doing so, like all-other military meas
ures, must, In gree.t degree, be left to be de
termined bv particular exigencies. 1 ne aispo
sltlon of other property belonging to tbe rebels
that becomes subject to our arms isgoverned by
the circumstances of the ease. The Govern
ment has no power to bold slaves, none to re
strains slave of hie liberty or exact his ser
vice. t
It has right, however, ? use the toknU
ry service of elavee liberated by war from rebel
masters, like any other property of tbe rebels,
in whatever mode may be most efficient for the
defense of tbe Government, the prosecution . ol
the war, and tbe suppression of the rebellion.

Secretary of War.
i To the President.,
Report of the Secretary of the Navy.
The Secretary says the enlarged estimates of
expeuditore lor tbe naval service euemittea in
July, eoutemplated, especially, tnree amerent
lines ot caval operations, liieee were
1. Tbe closing of all tbe insurgent ports
along a coast line of nearly tbree tnousana
miles, in the form and under the exaotiog reg
ulations of an international blockade, including
tbe naval occupation and defense ot the roto
mac river, from its mouth to the Federal Capi
tal, as the boundary line between Maryland
and Virginia, and aUo the main commercial
aveoue to the principal base ol our military op
erationt. .
2. Tbe organization of combined naval and
military expeditions to operate againet various
points of the southern coast, rendering efficient
naval co operation witb tbe position ana move
ments of suoi expeditions when landed, and in
cluding also all needful naval aid to the army
la cutting on intercommunication with tbe reb
els and in its operations on the Mississippi and
its tributaries; and ; -
3. Toe active pursuit of tbe piratical cruis
ers wnicn migbl escape tne vigilance or tne
blockading force and put to sea from tbe rebel
as to entorcing tne oioctaae, tne becreiary
says, means were at first inadequate. Pnrehasee
were accordingly made and charters nastily ex
routed for tbe exigency, and orders peremptori
ly issued to forthwith equip and prepare for ser
vice the public vessels that were dismantled
and in ordinary at the several yards. ' The force
thus hastily gathered wa placed along our
coast, extending, from the easternmost line of
Virginia to Cape fiortda, and was onaer tne
command of flag umcer bubs H.btriugnam.
The other, or Gulf squadron, operating from
Cape Florida westward to the Rio Grande, was
commanded by Flag Officer William Mervine.
Thus tbe blockade wae made as effectual as
possible, but our ptincipal naval vessels, owing
to great draught of water, wore not adapted to
the blockade service on our ebailow coast, es
tbe of North Carolina.
THE POTOMAC FLOTILLA.
The defense of the Potomac was one of the
most embarrassing features of the war, as tbe
flotilla of tbe fotomac required tbe actual co
operation of the army force in order to keep
that river open. For several months, however,
the navy effected tbe object, until late in Ooto-
ber, when tbe rebels succeeded in erecting bat
teries that rendered tbe navigation dangerous,
THE SQUADRONS.
-
tbe ooast has been very dimcnlt; the pressing
necessities of tbe insurgents compelled them to
increase their exertions to enpply tbeir wants
as we Increased our blockading force. A divis
ion of squadrons became necessary, and Cap
tain Goldsboroneb, on tbe Minnesota, raised
bis flag September 23d, as commander of tbs
squadron to guard the coast of Virginia and
North Carolina Capt. Dupont, on tbe Wa
bash, Ootober 29 tb, was assigned commend of
the squadron on the South Atlantio coast, ex
tending from tbe line between tha Carolines to
Cape florida. Tbe Gall squadron in Beptem
ber was put in command of Capt- McKean.
Tbe moutDs of tbe Mississippi nave been so
guarded that the commerce of New Orleans
has been successfully interdicted. Une hund
red and fifty three vessels have been captured
while attempting to run tbe blockade. -
THE STONE FLEET.
The blockading of harbors by sinking ves
sels laden with stone was first adopted on tbe
North Carolina coast, in the inlets to Albemarle
and Pamlico Sounds, and other interior waters,
where vessels purchased at Baltimore, and la
den with stone, were eunk. Another fleet of
larger vessels, similarly laden, have been sent
to be sunk in the faarbora of Charleston and Sa
vannah. , . ,
SEIZURE OF SOUTHERN FORTS.
The BecreWv give the hietorv af the expe
dition that seized Ilatteras, and says:
Tbe military force was inadequate to follow
up tbe brilliant victory by seouring a position
on tbe main land, end there propitiating and
protecting tbe loyal teeiiog wbicb bad begun to
develop iieelf in North Carolina. ' -
It was intended that tbe success at fia'.terae
should have been followed in September by a
mora formidable expedition, and the seizure ol
more important position further eoatb. Ow
ing to various causes, Independent of the Navy
Department or the condition of tha navy, this
movement wae unavoidably postponed until tbe
29 ih oi October, when a fleet of forty-eight
sail, inoluding transports, a larger squadron
tnan ever beiore assembled nnder our flig, left
Hampton Roads, Captain bamuel F. Dupont In
command. -
Then follows the history of the Port Royal
seizure. ' Of affiirs thereabout, since, tbe Sec
reury says:
A demonstration lines ordered bv Flat Officer
Dupont oe Tybee Island, at tbe mouCb of tbe
Savanuth river, which resulted in the Centura
of that Island, and the strong Martello tower
and battery tbat virtually command Fort Pulas
ki. Our naval forces bave possession ot tbat
Island, a part of the South American squadron
is at anchor in the harbor, and the 'flag of tbe
Union is still unfurled iu Georgia. Tbo die
patch of Flag Officer Dupont, communicating
to the Navy Department an account of this
transaction, and the additional faot tbat the
rebel toemselves have, in anticipation of our
action, placed obstructions in the river at Fort
Pulaski. - .;- ?
TEH MISSISSIPPI RIVER.
A naval force on the Mississippi and its tribu
taries, has been organized, and is nnder tbe
command of Flag Officer Andrew H. Foote,
who is rendering efficient service in that quar
ter. . .... .: : : ' - - - . -
The steamers wbicb bavs been bnilt or pur
chased for this service by tbe War Department
are of a formidable - character, and manned by
class of superior , eeaMss and weetera boat
men, who, la tha prelUniuwy akirmishs al
ready, have done good ecrvice, and will, I am
confident, acquit themselrm with credit jn tbe
future.

VESSELS BUILT AND PURCHASED
Twenty-eight light draft, screw steamers,

construction.
If, witb those above enumerated, we Include
tbree iron clad, or armor steamers, which are
being bnilt from tbe money appropriated for
tnat purpose at tne special session, tnere win
be nnder these several arrangements an addi
tion, when they are completed, of fifty. two new
steamers, peculiarly adapted to the required
blockade or coast guard duty, added tb the
navy. No sailing vessels have been ordered
to be built, for steam, as well ae heavy ord
nance, baa become anslndispensible element ol
the most efficient naval power.
Tbe purchase of Teasel was committed to
an agent, who acted under a Naval Board.
llie expenditure in fitting for sea service the
vessel at the different navy yards, and repair
ing and equipping those returning from our
foreign squadrons, has bsen large. Eleven
thousand mechanics and laborers baa been In
the daily employ of the Government at the dif
ferent navy yards in building and preparing
vessels, and equipping and arming them for
service; but this large force has been nnable
to dispatcb tbe work witb tbe rapidity demand

consequence to resort to private shipyards and
outside labor. .

CONTRABANDS.
In the coastwise and blockading duties of the
navy, it has been not nnlrequent tbat fugitives
front insurrectionary places have soueht our
ships for refuge and protection, and our naval
commanders bave applied to me for instruction
as to the proper disposition which should be
made of such refageee. My answer baa been
that, if insurgents, tbey should be banded over
to- tb custody of the governments bnt if, on
tbe contrary, tbey were free from any voluntary
participation lu tho rebellion, and sought the
shelter and protection of our flag, then tbey
should bo cared for and employed in some use
ful manner, and mtgnt be enlisted to serve on
our publlo vessels or in our Navy Yards, re
ceivicg wages for their labor. If such employ
ment could not be famished to alt by tbe navy,
