April 1S..H, nioro Htreiiuonslv Oiponeil the
abolition niovement in tho free- States than
we have: not bectiiiKO wo loved slavery, or
hand any sympathy with that hateful insti
tution, but because wo love the Constitution
of the I'nion, mid becanso we believed that
liberty at homo and throughout the world
was tar more inteicstcl in. preserving the
Union of the Stales under tho Federal Con
stitution, than in abolishing slavery ns it
existed .the Southern section of our eomnion
country, lint wo believe, and always have
belied, that liberty, the cause ot free iusti-
tutitutiotis, tho hopes of philanthropist! anil
Christiana, both at home and abroad, arc
more interested in preserving tho 1 nion
and the integrity of the nation, than they
are or can be, in maiiit;iinig negro slavery.
If we have opposed abolition heretofore, I
becatis.; we would preserve the Union, we
must, a fortiori, oppose slavery whenever,
in onr judgement, its continuenee becomes
incompatible with tho maiideance of tho U
nioii, or of our nation as a free Republican
Certainly we said in tho articlv on ''The
Great Rebellion," in our last l?ci'ic. too
North has not taken up arms fur the destruc
tion ol negro slavery, but lor tho mainten
ance of the Federal Government, the enforce
ment of the laws and tho reservation of
the Union. This is true. The liberation of
the slaves is not the purpose and end of the
war in a lneli M'e are now engaged.' I lie
war is a war ajrainrt rebellion, cnnaired hi
by rebels for the purpose of making this a
great slavcholding republic, in which the
labor of the country shall be performed bv
slaves, either black or white; and if, to de
feat the rebellion, the destruction of slave
ry be rendered necessary and be actual, y
etlected. it will change nothing in the char
acter or purpose of the war. It will have
been necessitated by the rebellion and the
rebels will have onlv themselves to thank
for the destruction. of abolition they force
us to adopt in defence of liberty, the Union,
and the authority of the Government.
A WORD TO WORKING MEN.
Look at the question as we will, we have
no alternative hut to subdue the rebels or be
Mil '.pirated by l.heiii. We must either de
pose that Confederacy and enforce the au
thority ol tlie 1 eileral (mvei niiient. over ail
the rebellious Stu'.es, or it will enforce its
authority over tho lice Elates, and impose
upon tlnm this system of slave labor. Kit
enforces its authority over us, there will
still, perhaps, be !ibe;ty tor a class or caste.
but our Miwiiitj clussrs will no loiujtrr lv
fw.uuin they will be placed on a level
with the negro slave on a Southern planta
tion.' for the, Christian Coiunioiiwcalili.
founded by our faiiieirf, toiled for and bled
for, we shall have established a Pagan l!c
public nforo hostile to the rights of man
and the rights of nations than was ever Pa
gan Greece or Pagan Home. 'U'o put it to
our Christian countrymen, if such is the
commonwealth their fathers fought and suf
fered through the lout; seven years' war of

THE WAR A SERIOUS MATTER.
no. to mince our or to
utiuldy out hiiniud phrases; we must call
things by their right names, and treat all
who aro not for us as against us.'.. Wo have
something, more than even the Constitution
aiid aws to maintain; Jhe very existence of
th6 tiatioti is at stake; and as no incahn'afc
scrupled to destroy it, we have tho right to
use all the means which the law of self-preservation
rentiers necessary and expedient.
Wo wish our renders and the public to un
derstand that we are in war, anil to let it
get through their heads that the war which
the rebellion has forced upon us is no mim
ic war, is no child's play, and is not to be
conducted to n successful issue on the prin
ciple' of treating the rebels as friendo, giv
ing them every advantage and doing them
no harm. They aro in down right earnest,
are putting forth all their strength, and do
tiiLC their best to subjugate us; anil wo also
must bo iu downright earnest, put forth all
our strength to subjugate them. War can
not bo conducted on peace principles, or
successfully conducted by persons who do
not enter into it with spirit, resolution and
Tho American people, especially of tho
North, are. n siioceptiblo people, and can feel
and respond to the force ot genius as readi
ly and as heartily as any other people on
the face of the globe. No people in the
world are susceptible of a deeper or more
abiding enthusiasm; no people better appre
ciate the value of a good battle cry; and it
has neon a mistake on tho part ot the Ad
ministration, not to have better appreciated
their real character. It has failed to give
them that battle cry. It has been too cold,
too prosaic, and has pronounced no spirit
stirring word. Instead of kindling up the
enthusiasm of the people, it has looked to
the people to quicken its own. Instead of
inspiring them, it has waited for them to
inspire it. This has been a grave mistake.
Men placed at the head of affairs, are placed
there to lead,, uot to follow; to give an in
pulse to tho people, not to receive it from
tho people. If the Administration has life
and energy, if it has ability and genius, let
it uo longer hesitate to use them; but put
them forth in that free, bold and energetic
manner winch will carry the people with
them', and command victory. ,
., AVe insist the more earueutly on this, be
cause ti.e a a of our pioplo have so long
been accustomed to sympathize with rebels,
to aid and encourage revolutionists abroad,
and to visit with their severest denuncia
tions tho acts of the legitimate government
to suppress insurrection, to put down revo
lutionists, and vindicate its authority, that
they cannot bo rallied with much enthusi
asm under the simple banner of Law and
Oder. Their first emotion is to sympathize
with rebellion? wherever it breaks out, even
though against their own Government.
Titty hold as a principle, as that on which
their vory national independence is based,
the "sari-ed right" of revolution; because
they generally take it for granted that all
rebels : awl revolutionists uro the party of
liberty, warrwg against despotism, ami lor
the rights of man. Would you rally them
and render thorn invinciblo against too foe?
You must give them auothcr tattle cry than
that of "Law and Order,'' or you Trill no
stir their heart, thst mighty American Iwurt
which conquered this coun'ry from tho snv
n;o ond the forest, proclaimed and won its
independence, constituted the Union, and
made the American nation one of the great
nation of the earth. It is not for us, even
if wo were able, to give that battle cry; it
must bo given by genius in authority, and
fall either from the lips of the President, or
theCanima ider-in-Chief of our armies. Nei
ther may as yet bo prepared to utter it; but
if this nation has t future. If its destiny Is,
as wo havo hitherto boasted, to prove what
man may be when and where no has the
liberty to be himsolf, uttered by ono or the
other "it ere long will be, and in tones that
will ring out through tho whole Union, and
through tho whole civilized world now anx
iously listening to hear it. The Union is
and must be sacred to liberty. Hero man
must bo inan.noth'ng more, and nothing loss.
Slaves must not breathe our atmosphere;
and we must lo able to adopt the proud
boast of our mother count rv, "The slave
that touches our soil is five.'' This is the
destiny of the Xew World, if destiny we
have, tho destiny our fathers toiled for,
fouuht for, bled for, and to this we their
children must swear to be faithful, or die
to the last man.
THE SLAVE POPULATION.
TIoh lu'iiio-M lis to the nuctitioit
of the slave population in the rebellious
States. In these States thero arc over three
millions of the population held by the laws
or usages of those States as slave. These
people are an integral portion of the United
States, owe allegiance to the Federal Gov
eminent, and aro entitled to the protection
of that Government. Tho Government has
the same right to m.iko friends and allies of
them, and to enroll anil arm them against
the rebelli on, that it has to make friends
and allies or to enroll and arm the white
population of Western Virginia or Easlern
Tennessee. It makes nothing against this
that these oooolo have heretofore been
slaves by the laws or the usages of the
States in which they reside; for the laws or
nsatres are deprived of all force aiiainst the
Union bv the very act of rebellion. Rebel
lion dissolves all laws for the protection of
tho life or property of the rebels. Hy the
very tut of the rebellion, the rebel forfeits
to the Goveriuneiit. against which he rebels,
both his uroi'ertV und his life, and holds
henceforth neither, save at its mercy or dis
crction. If it were not so, ihe Government
would have no right to confiscate the pro)
ortv of rebels, or to attempt to suppress n
rebellion by force of arms. If the skives
held in the rebellions States arc properly.
they are torleited to the Government, ami
the Government may confiscate them, as
cotton, nee, tobacco, or any other species
of property found in the hands of the rebels.
The same principle that gives the Govern
iiient the right to confiscate a bale of cotton
owned by a rebel, gives it a right to colilis-
cate every neino tdavo claimed by a reta
muster. This is perfect!'' clear, and is im-
pl.ed in the recent net oi Congress on the
subject. Ibit if these people held as slaves
are not property, they are and should be
retrarded as citizens of the United States
owing allegiance to the Federal Govern
incut, liable to be called into the service o
the Union in the wtiv and manner it deems
most advisable, and, if loyal, entitled to the
same protection from tho (overnmont as
my other class of loyal citizens. Nobody
call pretend that the I'Vderal Government
is obliged, by virtue of the laws or usages
heretofore existing in the s!;ivo Slub-s, to
treat these people as property. Whatever
Illicit! have been ils obligations before the
rebellious nets of those States, that obliga
tion is no longer in force.
THE BORDER STATES AND FREEDOM.
But, if it be required to treat them as free
ang loyal citizens by the military operations
lor the preservation of the Union, or even
to remove the causes of the present rebel
lion, the Government, is bound to so treat
them. The only doubt that can arise is as
to tho fact, whether it would or would not
prove useful In this end. It may bo object
ed to such a measure that it would deprive
us of the aid of Western Virginia aud Kast
ter Tennessee, nnd drive into open hostility
to the Union, Maryland, Kentucky and Mis
souri. This objection deserves grave con
sideration. But it is in substance tho ob
jection that, has embarrassed tho Govern
ment from the outset, and compelled it to
take only half way measures to suppress
the rebellion. For oursevlea, wo cannot
respect the fear to which this obligation ap
peals. Fear is the worst possible counselor
in tho win Id, and the government that hesi
tates to adopt the best policy for fear of
alienating its friends, is lost. Let the lines
be, at once sharply drawn between our
friends and our enemies. In a crisis like
the present, hike warm friends who will be
our friends only by virtue of certain conces
sions to their interests or prejudices, arc
more embarrassing than open enemies, uud
do more to weaken our forces than if array
ed in Opeti hostility ag.iinRt us. If these States
aro for the Union they will insist on no con
ditions incompatible with the preservation of
i. t- ,i ...:n r..
me i'nion; iney win iiiio niiwun cn .... ...u
Union, as well as other loyal States, and
there is no, reason why they should not.
There is neither reason or justice in Massa
chusetts. New York, New Jersey, Pennsyl
vania, and the great States north-west of
the Ohio, pouring out their blood ami treas
ure for the gratification of tho slaveholdmg
pretentions of Maryland, Kentucky or Mis
souri. Tho citizens of theso States who
own slaves, ure as much bound, if the pres
ervation of the Union requires it, to give up
their property iu slaves, us we at the far
ther North are to pour out oni blood and
treasure to put down a rebellion which
threatens aliko them and Us. If they love
their few slaves more than they do tho Lm
on, let them go out of the Union. We are
stronger to light the battlo of the Union
without them, than wo are with them.
But we havo referred only to tho slaves
in the rebellious States, and, if it is or if it
becomes a military necessity to liberate all
the slaves of the Union, and to treat the
whole slave population as freemen and citi
zens, it would be no more than just an prop
er that, at the conclusion of the war, the
loyal citizens of the loyal sections of the re
bellious State, should be indemnified at a
reasonable rate for slaves that may have
been liberated. The States and sections
have not a large number of slaves, aud, if
the Union is preserved, it would not bo a
heavy burden ou it to pay their ransom;
and to paying no patriot or loyal citizen of
tho freo States should raise the slightest
objection. Tho objection, therefore, urged,
though grave, need not be regarded as iu
snparuble, uud we think the advantage of
tho measure, iu a military point of view,
would bo greater than any disadvantage wo
havo to apprehend from it.
Whether the time for this important meas
ure has come or not, it is for the President,
as Commander-in-Chief of our armies, to de
tenubj. But, in our judgement, no singlo
measure could be adopted by the Govern
ment th.it would more effectually aid ils
military operations, do more to weaken tho
rebel forces, and to strengthen our own.
Foro uiillious of people, lu tho 'slave States,
feeling that the suppression oi tne roueinon
1 and tho triumph of the Uuion secure to
Iheiii iiiol their children foiever the of
free citizens, are more than n hundred iit.-n
taken from the force. of the ciiertW. and
twice that number mlded to our own; for
they would not onlv compel the rebels to
eep a large force that might otherwise be
employed at home, to protect their own
wives and children, but would deprive them
of a greater portion of that labor b which
they now subsist their armies. Now slavery
is to them a source of strength; it would
then be to them a source of weakness. Its
abolition Would, in our judgment, bo strik
ing tlie enemy at fns most vulnerable point,
precisely where we can best sunder the
sinews of his strength, at id deal him the
most fatal blow.
Moreover, it would not only bring to the
assistance of the rederul arms the co-opera
tion of tho whole colored race in thu Union,
but. would assure us, what wo now lack, the
sympathy and the moral aid of the whole
civilized world, and remove all danger of
coining into conflict with either France or
F.uglaiid. The war would bo seen then
likely to ell'eet a result with which Kuglish
mi n and Frenchmen could sympathize, and.
instead of wishing lor the success oT the
Southern Confederacy, they would wish
with all their hearts for the success of the
Federal arms. It would do more than this.
It would bring to the aid of our volunteer
forces from one hundred to two hundred
thousand bravo and stalwart volunteers
from the free States aye, and even many
from the slave States themselves who will
not .Mid cannot be induced to volunteer their
service in a war which, even if successful,
in-inniMii to leave the institution of Klavcrv
not only existing, but more firmly establish
ed than ever, hvervbodv knows that shivery
is at the bottom of the whole controversy,
and that the real object of the Southern
leaders is not simply to protect slavery a-
cainst abolition movements where it exists
but to extend it over the whole I. tiioti, and
make the American Kopublioaslavcholdin-r
republic. And there are men in large liilin
bers amongst us, men who nave laid no
sympathy with abolitionists, who see and
understand very well that, even were we
successful in putting down the present re
bellion, no real I nioii between the iNorlh
aud the South could be restored, and that
no durable peace between them could bo re
established, if slavery continued to exist
Theso men will not enter heartily into the
war, unless they see clearly and feel fully
assured that it wl result in the final and
total extinction of slavery throughout the
I nion, and all tun territory it may now
possess or hereafter acquire.
SLAVE LABOR AND FREE LABOR.
The present rebellion proves.what thought
fid and far seeing men in all sections ol the
Union have long t'cen and said, that the pres
ervation Oi lite I umu with tho slave system
of labor extending' over one half of it, and
the free labor system over the other half, is
in the ordinary course ot unman events, an
impossibility. Senator Seward, or rathe
Mcin llerr Diefonhack iu our P.eview be
fore him. was right iu saving there in an
"irrcpresible coullict-' between the two
systems. They cannot long co-exist togeth
er in peace and harmony; there is an irre
pressible tendency in each to cxchldo the
other; and no possible wisdom or prudence
ou the part of any administration cm har
moni.e their eo-e.istanee under one and the
same government. You nuts!, make your
election between tlie systems, and adopt
for the whole coitutiy either tho slave sys
tem or the lYoc-iubor system; and the real
hi.;nil'u"iui:e of the contest in whVl we are
I is, as 'o which of those sys-
U ins shall be the American system.
However homogeneous in race or charac
ter, habits or I'unncis, m.iy be the people of
a cotintiy iu the outset, they separate and
grow gr.t lually into two distinct p.-oples,
with almost entirely different ideas, habits
and customs, if one hall' of them iu the one
section adopt the slave system, and the
other, the lice-labor system. Wo have
already iu the United States, notwithstand
ing our common origin, our common langu
age, the similarity of our law w. and our ha
bitual intercourse, grown almost, into two
distinct nations, Tho Confederates are
Americans, indeed, for they have been born
and bred on American soil; but, they no
longer retain the original American charac
tod; w hile in the Iree States, bating the
alterations effected by foreign emigration,
that character is supstuntially preserved.
We of the North are the same people that
made the ltevolution, won American Inde
pendence, and established the Federal Gov
ernment. This divergence showed itself
even at the time of tho Involution; aud it
has been growing greater and greater from
the beginning of the present century; ami it
tho two systems of labor are continued
American . soil, it must continue to grow
still greater and greater, till the people, of
the two sections grow up into two absolute
ly distinct and mutually hostile nations,
uo longer capable, but by the subjugation
by the one of the other, of existing under
one and the same government. The only
way this divergence can be cheeked, the
unity and houiogeueousiiess of the whole
American people recovered and preserved,
is by the assimilation of the labor system of
the North and Ihe South.
Wc of the North cannot and ought not to
accept the labor system of the South. But
the slave States, by their unprovoked re
bellion, have given u.-i an opportunity of
performing an tod of long delayed justiie
the negro ponpulutinn of the Union, and of
assimilating tho Southern labor system to
ours. This assimilation is the bottom of
tho Southern rebellion, and tho South has
risen in arms against tho Union chii fly for
the ptirpoes of extending her labor system
over all the free States. In doing so sho
gives us the right, in our own soil' defence,
to extend our lice labor system over all the
slave States a right which, but for her re
bellion, we would not havo had under the
THE GAIN OF LIBERTY.
If this prove a disadvantage to tho South
ern States, owing to the peculiar character
of their laboring population, they have no
right to complain, for it is a disadvantage
only as compared with us of the Ninth: for
it will bo bettor for tho South herself to
have her negro population free laborers
than it is to havo them slaves, counting
the population of the South, we must count
not merely her white, but also her black
and colored population. The moral, spiri
tual and material well being of her four
millions of black and colored people must
be considered, as well as the moral, spiri
tual and material well-being of her eight
millions of w hites. These black and colored
pen do are r.s much human beings, whoso
w elfare is as important and as necessary to
be consulted by the statesman, tho political
economist, the moralist and tho Christian,
as that of any other portion of her popula
tion; and what they would gidn by their
emancipation should be thrown into the
balance against what might bo lost by their
loi mcr owners. But even the three hun
dred and forty seven thousand slave owners
would, iu reality,' lose nothing, or gain in
mural more thau they would lose in material
prosperity. Wo would not believe South
cm society would in cat.e of emancipation,
be equal to what it would be if the whole
population were of the white race. Tho
nro element would remain in that society,
an 1. wherecr it remains it will be an in-I
ferior element; but far less so ns free, than '
nsl.kved, Tho while population of the ;
uth must nlwavs suiter Hps rtrawhncR lor
ivilig collected, or submitted to the col-
ectioii of, a la. go African population ou
their soil, and they have no licjit to coin
plain if obliged to make expiation, us lung
ns flic world stands, for having introduced
and sustained tho institutiou of negro sla
very. But aside from the disadvantage of
having its laboring population of a race
with winch the white race will not mingle,
the South would gain by tho assimilation of
her labor system to that of tho North.
EMANCIPATION POSSIBLE WITHOUT INDUSTRIAL
M. Augustin Cochin has proved, in the
work before us, that slavery can be abolish-
d, and the skives converted into Iree labor
ers, without any serious detriment, even to
tho former slave proprietors. e all know
that free labor is more economical than
slave labor, and, therefore, that a freeman is
worth more, under the point ol view of
national wealth, than a slave. The conver
sion ot the tour millions ol slaves now in
the Southern Slates into freemen, would
very luihh increase instead of diminishing
tho aggregate wealth of these States: nnd if
a porton ot this increased aggregate wealth
should pass Iroin the hands ol a tew slave
noprietors, and into the hands ot those w ho
lave heretofore been allowed to hold no
property, the aggregate well being of the
whole community would also be augmented
instead of diminished, and therefore the
South, regarded as a whole, as loookmg to
her whole populatiou.wo'd be unquestiona
bly a prreat cainer bv the change. It would
not iu any respect bo depopulated or im
poverished, but would be in the way of a
more rapid increase id its population, and
of that wealth which constitutes the real
strength and prosperity of a State. What
wo propose, then, would bo in no respect
ruinous, or even injurious to tlie Southern
States themselves but would be a real advan
tage to them, aud secure them after the
peace till the real greatness, strength and
prosperity States, with a mixed population,
are capable of. The proposition, then, in
volves no injustice, no injury to the white
population of file Southern States; while it
would be an net of justice, though tardy
justice, to the negro race so long held iu
bondage, and fore 'd to forego all their own
rights aud interests for the pride, wealth
and pleasure ol their white masteis.
It seems to un, then, highly important, in
every possible view oi' the case, that ttie
Federal Government should avail itself of th
opportunity given it by the Southern rche!
l.on tti perform this ai t of justice to the
negro race, to assimilate the labor system o!
the South to that of tho Nin th ; to remove
a great moral and political wrong ; and lo
wipe oat the foul slain of slavery, which
litis hitherto sullied the otherwise bright
escutcheon of our republic. We are no fa
natics on the subject of slavery, as is well
known to our readers, and we make no ex
traordinary pretensions to modern philan
thropy; but we can not help fearing that, il
the government, lets alip Ihe present oppor

and of placing our republic throughout in
harmony with modem civilization, God,
who is especially the God of the poor and
the oppressed, will never give victory to
our arms, or sulnr us lo succeed in our el
forts to suppress the rebellion and resloi

too long turned a deaf e ir to too cry of tho
enslaved ; wo havo loo long millered our
hearts to grow callous to the wrongs of the
down trodden in our own country; wo have
too long been willing to grow rich, t.i creel
our palaces, and gather luxuries around us
by the toil, the sweat and the blood of our
enslaved brethren. May it not be that ihe
cry of these brethren has already entered
the ear of lh av.-n. and that he has taken Up
their cause, nnd determined that if wo re
fuse any longer lo break their chains, to sot

this matter, wo have liini to

We confess that we fear, and deeply fear,

Tho Ohio Slate Journal publishes the ac

Knights of the lioldcu Circle, at Marion, in
