Note fok ljow of Lisclon's Mes
sage.-TLhe recent special mysage of
the President transmitted to Congres1
adopting unmistakable, the platform
of prospective emancipation anl sla
very circinnscription, is elicitjng
much and varied cqrnment. ,WlTen
superfiially considered, it conveys
rather a mystical and tiiiapoqrtaiit
significatibn; but ; close and careful
analysis of its prominent featurtspre
dhided aqy basis for ambiguous or
equivocal ipter retation.
The radical Abolotiopists adopt it
with pleasing guato, netwithstasnd
ing it subjects them to tbhe ridiculouis
inconsistency of xecopgizing slaves
as property, f.r which. compenshtion
should bemade from the public treas
iry. The 4ecumet coutains an un
fortunate semi-acknowledgment that
the Federal Goevrnment may, in the
future, fiand it obligatory to recognize
a Southern Co'ifederacy, so far as to
the more remote or cotton States. IIe
rges Oongress 'to anticipate by
speedy legislation the latent purppse
of any of theborder or central States
to inaugurate an emancipation policy ,
by which the moit, Sonthvrn Statts
would be precluded from any hope
of their co-operation or affiliation.
This indirect admission is in direct
conflict with.tbe position alwayp as
sumed by Secretaiy Seward in hii.
the ground that no two Confederacies
can exist on this continent.
We cannot bshut our eyes against
the conviction that the Prodsdeut, if
necessary, in the further prosecution
of tje war'against rebellion, is pre
pared to adopt any means whichI he
nay deem"indispensable.'" He may
deem Si indispensable to jo the Ab
olition idoctrine to is fill extent.
