Last evening, the city of Washington wit
nessed a magnificent spectacle a spontaneous
nut poarlug of the people to congratulate the
Tres Went and member! of hit cabinet upon the
.triumph of the Union cause in the late Presi
dential election. At 8 o'clock crowds of men
and women began to throng the space In front
ol the Executive Mansion, and towards nine
o'clock the protection of the Union political

Bounds by which the procession marched, and
when the whole assemblage was gathered in
the President's grounds, the "Uall Columbia"
and "Star Spangled Banner" were emphasized
The scene aa viewed from the windows of
the White Ilonse was a splendid one. Such a
aca of upturned faces" never before greeted a
President at that spot. A gentleman present
2n the White House who has attended every
demonstration of the kind during the last
thirty years, declared that he never saw so
many people gathered there before. Every
face was visible In the bright moonlight, and a
more joyous and enthusiastic throng was nerer
When Mr. Lincoln appeared at the centre
wlntlnw, a shout went up to the welkin as If
overy voice in tho vast assemblage was blended
Jnto one. 80 hearty and unanimous was the
greeting that the people seemed to spiak
through one throat. As soon, however, as the
Treeldent essayed to speak, the assemblage be
came aa silent aa a cloister, only giving utter
nee to their feelings at the telling points In
the speech, Mr. Lincoln then addressed them
Tni president's speech.
Friend and FtlloCitlumi 1 It has long been
grave question whether any government not
too strong for the liberties of lis people can be
svtrong tnovgh to maintain Us own existence In
srreat emergencies. On this point the present
rebellion brought our Republic to a severe lest;
and a Presidential election, occurring In rcgu
lar course during the rebellion, added not a lit
tle to the atraln.
If the loyal people united were put to the ut
most of their strength by the rebellion, must
they not fall when ditutIt and partially para
lyzed by a political war among themselves t
But the election was a necessity. We cannot
nave free government without elections; and if
the rebellion could force us to forego or post
pone a national election, it might fairly claim

Btrlfe of the election Is but humsn nature prac
tically applied to the facts of the caso. Voices
In the crowd ''That's so." What has oc
curred In this case must ever recur in similar
cases. Human nature will not change. In any
future great national trial, compared with the
men of this, we shall have as weak and as
alrong, aa silly and as wise, as bad and as
Let us, therefore, study the incidents of this,
as philosophy to learn wisdom from, and none
of them as wrongs to be revenged.
But the election, along with Its Incidental
and nadesirable strife, has done good too. It
has demonstrated that a people's government
csn sustain a national election In the midst of
a great civil war. Enthusiastic cheers. Until
now, It has not been known to the world that
this waa a possibility. It shows also how
sound and how strong we still are. It showa
that, even among candidates of the same party,
be who Is most devoted to' the Union, and moil
opposed to treason, can receive most of the
people's votes. Long-continued applause.
It shows also, to the extent yu known, that we
have more men now than we had whn tho war
began. Gold la good In Its place, but living,
brsvt, patriotic men are better than gold. Ap
But the rebellion continues: and cow that
the election Is over, may not all, having a com
mon Interest, reunite In a common effort to
save our common country ? Cries of ' Yes,"
"Good." For my own part, I have striven,
and shall atrlve, to avoid placing any obstacle

While 1 am deeply sensible to the high com
pliment of a re-election, and duly grateful, as
I trust, to Almighty God for having directed
my countrymen to a right conclusion, ss I

disappointed or pained by the result, t Ap
May I ask those who hare not differed with

And now, let me close by asking three hearty
cheers for onr brave soldiers and seamen and

Mr. Lincoln's call was responded to with
cheers that would bare rejoiced the hearts of
the soldiers and sailors of the country, could

Mr. Seward, referring to the prolonged cheers,

still stranger than that: within three years the

as yon now are In hearty approval of this mea
sure 01 emancipation.
With the Democrats we should be friends.
They have voted against us we have voted
against them. If they are now willing to cry
quits, it would be well to n fleet that, all thlncrs
considered, we may have Judged them rather
narsmy in some respects. 1 Believe mat perfect
harmony can soon be restored, not only
throughout the free States, but throughout all
I think so, because when I came on to the
stage, not long after the close or the revolu
tionary war, 1 heard my father and friends and
neighbors talking about what a large cumber
of torles there had been actively engaged dar
ing that war, and denouncing them severely;
and I remember that within three years they
had all disappeared, aud I could never under
stand where they had all gone. So, after the
war of 1SV.J, when I waa old enough to remem
ber distinctly who figured for and against the
Government, the Democrats used to csrry the
elections against the Federalists, on account
of their course In the war, as New York was
carried in lb02. Three years after the war all
the people claimed to have been In favor of the
war. mcreiore, my juagmenicow is that all
the people will soon come together; and that
when the stars and stripes shall again wave
over Richmond, the rebellion will go down, and
within three years you win nave to look mighty
hard to find a secessionist.
Our opponents have said the war la a failure.
Without accepting their Idea that It waa watred
only for the abolition or slavery, we may note.

would take Dis place witn v asmngton, Jeffer

country and tho human race.
Here Mr. Seward paused, while loud and
prolonged eheers went up from all parts or the
audience. He then concluded as follows;
I advise you to go and see the Secretary or
the Treasury and the Secretary or War, and
seep mem in a good uumor, lor 11 tne secre
tary of the Treasury should fall us, we mlpht
"come to icriei." and 11 me secretary 01 war
should continue as much Indisposed as he has I
been for a few days, 1 should be seriously ap
prehensive as to what might become of ns.
You cannot do any better than also to call and
stlrup my excellent compatriot, Gideon Welles,
and tell him, IfU Is possible for him to cIobo
np the port of Wilmington, he will thereby
save mt much trouble with our foreign rela
tions. Loud cheers and laughter. j
The crowd then went to the home of the Sec
retary of the Navy, where they heralded, by
loud and long cheers Tor ballot triumphs and
monitor victories, the purport of their visit.
The Secretary finally made his appoarancc,
and, having been introduced by Mr. Clcphane,
acknowledged the compliment or the call and
signified his supreme delight at the verdict of
the people. Ho was followed by Maj. Gen.
Ord, who Is at present the Secretary's guest.
Gen. Ord's remarks were brier but exceedingly
pithy. Ills advice to the people was, that "a
long pull, a strong pull, and a pull together,"
should be made to suppress the rebellion, and
the election has fully demonstrated that this
would be done.
Secretaries Stanton and Fcasenden were also
visited. The former was Indisposed and did
not appear, but announced to Mr. Clephane
his thanks for the call. The latter was absent
from his house.
The crowd then wended their way to the
residence of Secretary Usher, and, w route
thither, tarried awhile at the house of Colonel
Ekln, of tho Cavalry Bureau, who was honored
with a serenade by the Glceboro1 cavalry dele
gation. The Colonel made a very fitting
speech In acknowledgment of the compliment.
The residence of Secretary Usher, on F street,
between Sixth and Seventh, was afterwards
visited, but an announcement being made that
the Secretary was absent, the Attorney General,
Mr. Bates, who lives near-by, was then made
the recipient of a call. The Attorney General's
speech was characterized by elaborate thought,
being a panoramic comment on the counlry'a
perils, ihe avoidance of which, by the people'a
right In the past, promises, by the recent sub
lime expression or the country's will, security
In the futuro against all attempted disintegra
tion. The crowd then dispersed, after cheers for
the Attorney General, and the clubs proceeded
to tholr head juarters.

Of course, officers are drilled Into the belief
that they must preserve their batteries, and
that Is the reason why they do not catch vessels
at sea. Admiral Porttr'a father ravaged the
Indian Ocean, destroying the British commerce
there almost entirely. He was chased by tho
brlllsh navy for months, and his privateer was
finally destroyed In the harbor of Valparaiso,
lying at anchor, as the Florida was when cap

stroy privateers In neutral harbors, because
they couldn't catch them at sea) and tho reason
why they couldn't catch them we suppose to

inn, orncr " (uiiiimMni. im.i.ii.j
we published the next day (Thursday) after
noon, are full of significance. It appears that
tho rebel chief made certain admissions which
are considered heretical in tho highest degrco
by the slavcocrats and States rights men of
rebeldom. We copy below the paragraphs
which have called down tho Ire of tho rebel
press, with tho exception of JelT.'sorgsn, the
VVwftd mprelff as prone rtv. and therefore as
tho subjoct of Impressment, the service or labor
of the slave has been frequently claimed for
short periods In the coneti action of defensive
wotKS. ine stave, now over, ocara anoiuer ro
tation to the Bute that of a person. Tho law
of last February contemplates only the relation
of tho slave to the master, and limits the Im
pressment to a certain term 01 service, uut ior
tho purposes enumerated In the act, Instruc
tion In the manner of encamping, marching,
and parking trains Is needful, so that, even In
this limited employment length of service adds
greatly to the value of tho negro's labor. Haz
ard is aiso encountered in au tug jwaiuuna 10
which the negroes can be assigned to service
with the army, and the duties required of them
demand loyalty and zmI.
In this aapecttbe relation of person predom
Imtra en far at to rcrder It doubtful whether
tho private right of property can consistently
and beneficially be continued, and It would
seem proper to acquire for the public service
the entire property In the labor of tho slave,
and to pay therofor due compensation, rather
than to Impress his labor for short terms: and
this the more especially as the effect of the
present law would vest this entire properly In
all cases where the slave might bo recaptured
after compensation for his loss had been paid
to me private owner.
Whenever the entire properly in tho scrvlco
of a slave la acquired by tho Government, the
question Is presented, by what tenure he should
bo held. Should he be retslned in servitude, or
ihotdd hU emancipation bt held out to him at a re
ward for faithful strvlee, or should It be granted
at once on the promise of such service T and If
emancipated, what action should be taken to
secure ior tne ireeoman tno permission 01 me
State from which he was drawn to reside within
Its limits af.er the close of his public service ?
The permission would doubtless bo more
readily accorded as a rncird for past faithful
service, and a double mottve for tealou ditctiarge
0 (fifty would thus be offered to those employed
by the Government, their freedom, and the
gratification of the local attachment which Is
so marked a characteristic of the negro, and
forms so powerful an incentive to his action.
The above passages In Jeff.'s message are
considered Incendiary In the highest degree by
tho State rights and slavery oligarchs. Tbo
doctrines they teach are entirely subversive of
the "peculiar institution.'
To assume that the confederate government
has the right to take alaves from tbo States
and cmanctpsto them, and, worso than all, to
assume thst emancipation wonld bo an Incen
tive to aen Ice, a boon, a reward it is mon
strous! preposterous! Such doctrines admit
ted by slave dealers would be suicidal, ruinous.
Ilellef tor Paroled Soldlera,
The United States Sanitary Commission have
sent an agent and a stock or its supplies with
each vessel or the fleet which has gone to 8a

Depreciation of Confederate Money.
The chief dlfllcultv f be apprehended in
connection with our finances results from tho
depreciation of the Treasury notes, which
seems Justly tobe attribute! by the Secretary
to two causes: redundancy In amount and want
of confidence In ultimate redemption; for both
of which remedies are suggested that will com
mend themselves to your consideration as being
practicable as wen as cuicient.
A REM EOT SUGGESTED,
The main features of the plan presented are
subRtantlallv these: First. That the faith of the
Government be pledged that the notes shall
ever remain exempt irom I xa on. Becond.
That co Isbuo shall bo made beyond that which
Is already authorial by law. Third. That a
certain llxM portion of the annual receipts
from taxation durlngthe war sha'l beset apart
specially for the gradual extinction or the out
standing amouni untu ltsnau uava ueon re
duced to tin.OO.OOO; and Fourth. Tho pledge
and appropriation or such proportion or the
tax In kind, and for such cumber of years after
the return of p- .ce, as shall be sufficient for
tho final redemption of tho entire circulation.
The details of tho plan, tho calculations on
which It Is based, the efficiency of Its opera
tion, and the vast advantages which would re
sult from Its success aro fully detailed In tho
report, and cannot be fairly presented In a form
sufficiently condensed for this message. I doubt
not It will receive from you that earnest and
candid consideration which Is merited by the
Importance of the subject. Extract Jrom Jeff.
