Confiscation and Emancipation—Mr.
Trumbull's Bill and Speech.
Senator TaumtiLL, of Illinois, as our readers
are aware, on the fourth day of the present see
slon of Congress, introduced Into the Senate a
bill "for confiscating the property and giring
freedom to the sle-ee of rebels." The bill was
ordered to be printed and referred to fte Judi
clary committee. It is a bill, as described by
Mr. Tsumioli. blmself in bis speeeb on present
ins it, for the absolute and complete forfeiture
forever to the United States of every species of
property, real and personal, of all persons who
during the existence, oi the present rebellion,
shall take no arms against the United States,
or in anywayald and abet the rebellion. It
also forfeits the claim of all rebels and of those
who give them aid and comfort to the persons
tbey hold In slavery, and declares the slaves
thus forfeited free.
Without going farther into detail, it will be
seen that the provisions of the bill are broad
and swseplng in their character. Whether
this or a similar bill will be passed at the pres
ent sesaioo of Congress, U yet to be determined;
but it Is certain that it embodies th" policy
of a large and poweiful party In that body. "
Some things connected with tbe bill and Mr.
Tsohidll's speech upon it are worthy of spe
cial notice. The bill is one for confiscating
property, and for fitting, not eonJUctting,
slaves. . Confiscation la tbe act of adjudging
the goods or estate ol a traitor or other Crimi
nal to he forfeited to the oublio treasury or for
public use, Secretary Cham says In hi annua
rnort. icaordinr to the telegraph, that "the
- - r o - - . - i
rlifht to service, under State laws, most of ne
cessity form an exception to any role of con
fiscatioo." 'He thinks such persons : may be
justly liberated, bat that tbey cannot be confis
cated as subjects of property
Hence Is apparent the reason of the distinc
tion which Mr. TaonaoxL in bis bill makes be
tween slaves and other property. The latter is
to be confiscated; the former set free. Mr.
T.dmiull nlaoes the right to do both these
things upon the sajie ground But be repudi
ates tbe plea of necessity, or the superiority of
the military to the civil authority, even in time
of war Hear him:
Tbe power of Congress to pass a bill of this
oharacter is, to my mind, uoqoeetionable; but I
do not place It on the ground which baa been
advanced In some quarters, that in timseof war
or rebellion the military is superior to tbe oivil
power; or, that in snob times what persons may
choose to call necessity is higher and above tbe
Constitution. Necessity Is tbe plea of tyrants;
' and If our Constitution ceases to operate tbe
moment a person charged with its observance
thinks there is a necessity to violate it, it Is of
Utile value. So far from admitting the superi
ority of the military over the civil power in
time of war, or that there is any oeoeeeity that
it should be so, I hold that under onr Consti
tutioo tbe military is as much subject to the
control of ths civil power in war as In peace.
Tbe powers of Goverament, under our system,
are three, of which tbe military is not one.. It
Is merely inoldent to the others, and subject to
one of these, tbe legislative, without whose per
mission it can bave no existence; and when
called into being by tbe action of Congress, it
is by tbe Constitution expressly made subject to
each rnlee as Congress shall prescribe for its
government. , , ' :
Not only docs Mr. Tomsoll repudiate that
plea of tyrants necessity; but he professes to
deprecate any unconstitutional assumption of
power In tbe prosecution of the vw: Witness
these strong words:-' - ?' '': i -i'- ; ' .
I want no other authority for putting down
even this gigantlo rebellion than snch as may
be derived from tbe Constitution properly in
terpreted. It la cqnal even to this great emer
gencj, and tr more we atody its provisions, the
more it Is tot li In troublous times, the greater
will be onr admiration for the instrument and
oar veneration for Its authors. Aa unpopular
aa tbe avowal may be for the moment among
tbe thoughtless, I hare declare that I am for
aannresslnc tbla monstrous rebellion according
to law. and Is no other way. and J believe that
Congress ban eoly to discharge its duty, and the
army perioral ite witn energy ana activity, w
bring the war to a speedy and successful bene.
We are fighting to maintain ihe Constitution,
and it espeoially becomes ss In appealing to tbe
people to come to its rescue, not to violate It
ottrselves. How are we netter tnan sne renew
if both alike net at nought tbe Constitution 7 I
warn my countrymen who etand ready to tole
rate any act done in good faitb tor tbe suppres
sion of tbe rebellion, not to sanotlon usurpations
of power which may hereafter become prece
dents for the destruction of constitutional lib
erty. - . t 7 ; T f-
On this point" of strict adherence to coustitu
tional obligations, we give tbe closing' sentences
of Mr. TamuoLL's speech:
But while fighting this battle in behalf of
constitutional liberty, It behooves ns espsoially
to see to It that the Constitution receives no
detriment at onr bands. . We will have .gained
bat little in suppressing the Insurrection if it
be at the expense of tbe Constitution, for tbe
chains which the bondman wears are none, the
lighter because they were pressed by bis own
and not another's bands. ' As we expect to come
ont of this contest with onr flag run and com
plete In alt its proportions, not e stripe erased,
or star obscured, so let as preserve the Con
etitBtion, perfect in all Its parts, with all Its
guarantees for the protection of life and liberty
unimpaired and the instrument itself rendered
donbfy dear from tbe fact that it bad been sa
credly maintained and proven equal to every
emergency, under circumstances the most trying
to wbloh nation was ever snbiectea. Then,
when this straggle Is over, we will have an as
surance that our (Jorernment is stronger than
ever before, end . that constUatlrwl liberty is
established on ft foandation wbicrf no human
power will ever be able to subvert. '"' ' "r ;
"We expect," says Mr, TaraauLi., "io come
out of this contest with our flag full and com-,
piste, not a stripe erased, or a star obscured." Is
this mere rhetoric, or to tbe Repoblioan 8enator
sincere to-snob declarations? - If so, be most
be opposed to tbe policy that would disintegrate
or blot out States. Since Mr. Tatmtn.a end
those who sympathise with him are such bitter
opponents of the tyrant's plea necessity, and
ueh sticklers for the strict observance of tbe
Constitution, it Is well' for tbe people to watch
them and see bow their practices square with
their profession! . '"'Mr. Tkumwa believes his
confiscation and emulation bill to be consti-tuttonaL-
He cites tUo provisions of the Con
stitution giving Congress power "to declare
-. i ... ......

and naval forces; to provide for calling forth
the militia to execute the' lews of fttir Union,

This It nil -the' constitutional 'warrant Mr.
TaMsuLL finds for his olll. He think otina
cation, and emancipation on a jrg scale, Vpeo-
easirv and proper" for suppressing the insur-
reotiou. But they are pot clearly so;' for many
as able meu as Me-TnoniuM. and with, hearts
as loya to lbs Constitution awl Uoion M
his. think otherwise, v He defends bis bill npon
precisely the eronud be repudiates In 'on part
of bis speech, namely, that of Its necessity. , n
another part, be ad rocs tee it upon ft still more
untenable ground as a measure of retaliation
aud revenge the rebels have confiscated tbe
property of loyal citizens ana aouo otner unjus'
tifUbie acts, and, therefore, be mges, we most
confiscate their property and free their negroes
He goes so f s to say that military com
menders may do these things without tbe au
tborltv of Concress. j. -.-.. - . f -
Mr. TaimBcix oites authorities to show tbat.io
case of war tbe property ol alien enemlei may be
confiscated. . But each one of hi authorities
declare that to the validity of snch confiscation
an act of Congress is essential. Not one of his
authorities refers to any power In Congress or
tbe Federal Government to confiscate the prop
ertv of rebels or insurgents. Not ft word is
- . w
said by. one of them of any power, in the Gov
eminent to declare tbe emancipation of a single
slave under any emergency. -If Mr. Taonsou.
had any snoh authorities be was nnfortunate in
ool producing them or having them Inserted In
tbe report of bis speech in the Congressional
Globe.! ? ..- ''.'. i. ;..
Mr. TaunwtL, and several of bis colleagues,
such at Sdmnir, Wade, HuJt, eto., etc., are
in our opinion the most complete and perfect
aids that the secession cause now has, andtbtr
ill-advised movements In the Senate will go far
to promote and strengthen the rebellion in the
South.! ". . . , - . . -
It would be well for the Congressional mal
contents to beware to ponder tittle on their
movements, and temper them a little more with
prndeuee and common sense. . They mistake if
tbey suppose the people will stand sny thing in
tbe way of Abolition wickedness, and if tbey
prcsist in their mad schemes, tbey may arouse
tbe wrath of the people of the nation, and have
visited on themselves a punishment commensa'
rate with their deserts, i ' 1
It is the infamons agitation whioh these iufa
mous men have kept np for years tn the free
States, that has subserved the purposes of the
Disunionists of the Sonth, and finally nltimated
in tbe present great rebellion, and it is about
time that tbey were bionght to learn that the
people will tolerate each conduct no longer.

Mr. Cox has introduced a resolution instruct
ing the committee on Ways and Means to con
alder tbe tariff and taxation with. view to
equalise the, burdens of the war. ., .
This is another move which indicates that
tbe interests of tbe wbite tax-paying people
will at least be brought to the attention of the
numbers of Congress. Whether tbey will have
time to devote to this subject, we shall learn
hereafter.1' " -;' ' ' .;
Mr-! Caux has notified the country ths( if
the war continues until next Jaly. tbe national
debt will be fin mvotn Am nvxtmiir na
tion dollars; and If until July, 1863, it will
bs, in round numbers, niki huitdmd million.
It is very sae to say ont thopiaks million.
Of course the " Secretary dos not speak of
tbe payment of tbe principal of this im
mense debt, Jf the people pay' tbe interest,
it is all that can be expected- Posterity mast
provide for tbe payment of the debt. . Tbe pre
sumption is, that It is not iotendad that the
principal will ever be paid; bnt that like-England
we shall have s debt so large that no one
expects ns ever to pay more than the tntorest.
That will be as much as the people will de
sire. , ... i .- '.1 . . : - f
This being the case, the proposition of Mr,
Cox 4o equalize the burdens of taxation Is emi
nently proper. -j. 1 1,. -
Mr. Chase proposes to Increase the direot tax
to be collected from tbe loyal States to twintt
miluoks. This will rail with great severity on
the West. While the manufactures of the
New England States are largely increased in
price by the restrictive trarlff, tbe blockade of
the western rivers bas entirely cot off the mar
kets so much relied npon by tbe western agrW
cultnrist that tbe products of the great Missis
sippi Valley bare really no remunerative price,
and In fact we might say no sale. Besides this
the Secret uy proposes to increase the tax npon
tea, coffee and sugar. 'All this will lean heavi
ly on the agricultural and mechanical labor of
tbe country, while tbe Eastern manufacturer
and tbe contractors for the army will pocket by
the million (he proceeds of the bard labor of
tne people.;,,,,,, ,. ,j
It is well then, if w are to be Uxed to death,
to let ns die nnder tbe load as equally distributed
as possible. Let the manufacturing companies
of the East give np their immense profits nnder
protective tariffs, and be eontentts exist through
this' crisis with a living profit. ' Bat we confess
we bave no hope of this; the Bhy locks will not
give op tbeir pound of flesh voluntarily, and we
have not tbe power In Congress to compel them
to relinquish their hold.
.The loyal agricultural and mechanical people
of tbe West will be bankrupted, and tbe already
overgrown monopolists of tbe East, will amass
princely fortunes wrung from the honest labor
of those on whom the Government meet de
pend for its existence end support. ' -r "
Exchange of Prisoners.
From tbe dispatches of yesterday we learn
that Col. RioBa D30N, of Illinois, from the com
mittee on Military Affairs, has reported a reso
lution "requesting to President to ; inaugurate
systematic measures for. the exchange of pris
oners of war,'.' Which' v, as adopted. We are
glad to eee this prompt action oa the part of
the Home in response to the resolution intro
duced Some days since by our ' Representative,
Mr. Cox, "There is much more sense and prac
tical effect in this, than in tbe continual fowl
ing of the Abolitionists in Congress over the
question of slavery, j ' . ; ,
' It Is abontthe only move we bave seen for
the benefit of white men. It ie- refreshing to
know, that thsre ie one member ' thoughtfnl
enough to direct the attention of Congress to
the relief of the soldiers in prison. Wilson, of
Massachusetts, baa made move to let the ne
groes ont of tbe Washington j11, but not one
word did be say about releasing onr soldiers In

Slavery and the North.
In- 'e midst of tbe discussion nbont
methods of dealing with slaves and slavery,
which baa occupied so mnob time and attention
of late, the people of the North bave been . in
danger of losing sight of the questions of gen-
erml good to the country which are of vital lev
of suppressing revolt, we want tne union,
bnt we should recover the Union not impover
ished nor blasted with rain, l Those men who
were anxious to see the cotton monopoly of tbe
South destroyed by European plans, forgot that
thev wonld strike terrible blow at tbe North
. i. ... . 1 TT .
with tbe same weapon. Those men who desire
to see slavery wiped out by tbe war, bave no
Idea of tbe effect on tbe nation,- North as well
South, which such en end wonld produce. It is
all well for self-styled philanthropists to argue
that slavery is euree and should be done away
with; tbat the Union is better in ruins than
with slaves on Its soil. Bat reason, humanity,
duty to ourselves and to onr country dictate
different view of tbe qiestlon. , . xr
Without referring to tbe poverty and suffer
ing which .would be entailed on the negro rooe,
or discussing the other impossibility oi provid
ing plan of labor for them whlob ebonld sop
nort them from childhood through old age, In
sickness, insanity end feebleness, aa they ere
now supported, we beg, gentlemen, to consider
at what price New England and New York
wonld be worth purchase, if . slavery were at
once abolished In the Booth. We eaa near tbe
indignant Abolitionist, who calls this an argu
ment against bnmanity, bnt we respectfully in
sist tbat It is the argument of tbe purest human
ity and of the great good of black and white,
The North needs the Soath it tbe Union. The
Sonth needs tbe North though at present it
may think otherwise. And these great wants
of the two are founded on tbe diner ent social
systems of the two. r We do not want, of neces
sity, slaveholding South, if toy plan of labor
oau be devised to make it prosperous with
out slaveholding. ,- Bnt nntil such a plan is
arranged, ftboliiion would, operate to North
ern rain la 4ue destruction ol southern pros
neritv. - t. -t ' i 1-.-t ?v'w -r :
It is said by some that we have now reached
the end of slavery in America. We do not be
lieve it. (. We do not anticipate that the end of
tbe war la to be aoy anon tning. Any pin or
universal emancipation, in tbe Fremont atyle,
or by act of Uongrese wonia oe powerless, as we
have often shown. Tbe Government to do any
thing effectnally.must doit legally. Tbe acts
of confiscation, which have been and may be
passed, will be put Into operation la some in
stances.- But no one can imagine tbat the en
tire copulation of the Sonth is going to be im
poveriebedrevea by process f law, nnleas the
war is to continue till we bave repossessed tbe
country inch by inch, and subjected every one
of tbe million rebels to arrest, trial and confis
cation of houses, lands and slaves.. If this is
to be the result) it is obvious tbat tbe Southern
States wonld be worth no more to tie Union
than so moot waste land to bs re peopled. - 11
in the future, the entire South ie to be oonquer
ad. end the property of its rebellions citizens
confiscated by due process of law, while such
an end wonld be tbe result of tbeadministration
of tbe law, we suppose no one need to be told
that jt wonld be tbe end of Southern prosperity
also, and that the possibility ef the result Is
among the dreams ot the insane. ;-: i.--
We cannot nndertake,to prophesy the tud . of
tbe war, bnt If It comes, as we trust it may
ooma, by the returning reason of tbe Southern
people, that end will te hastened, by the calm
adherence of tbe Government to tbe Constitu
tion, and we shall bave tbe Sonth ' again as It
was in tbe Union. Wbat few ease of confis
cation by trial may occur will present lessons to
the world.-. It ie to be remembered that tbe
Constitution provides that (reason thall not tcork
forfeiture tstept during th lift tf the perton at
tained; that ns ftrttn thall ie dtfrived tf prtf-,
ertv teititut due erases lew: ni that o per-

watte paper. - Even tbe ftt of last winter, de
priving rebel ef the eervice of tbe slave, nsed
for the purposes of rebellion, will hardly stand
the test of constitutional examination, r It is
therefore far from likely tbat the end of slave
rv is to be brought about just now, unless we
soins in long war of extermination,
whioh may God forbid. N, Y. Journal tf
