We are glad to learn that on Thursday. Ad jutant General Thomas sent out Instructions to Uen. Sherman, In Btanfort, to take possession of all the crops on tbe Island cotton, corn, rice, etc on military account, and to ship the cotton, aid sach other crops as were not want ed for the army, to New York, to be sold there for account of the Government ; also, to use the negro slaves to gather and secure the crops of cotton and corn, and to erect his defences at Port Royal and other places on the Island, These Instructions, so far as negroes are con cerned, can; out tbe principles of the original Instructions under which Gen. Sherman started on this expedition, and which were so general ly approved by the country. They seem to us to be, In all respects, eminently wire. It Is better for the negroes to be employed than to be Idle, and In this case their labor will save valuable crops, which would otherwise be nearly a total loss. By the laws of war, all property of the em my, public and private, Is forfeited to the victor. Whatever Is spared, Is spared upon considera tions of clemency or policy. But what tbe Government here directs to be done, la rather tbe saving of property from destruction than the confiscation of It. '. NEW UK8TIMCTIONS TJPOIT POPltL.AU USEHTT. We referred the other day to a report recent ly made to the Virginia Convention, by Mr. Stuart, who was a member of Mr. Fillmore's Cabinet The special recommendation In that report, was to restrict popular election to the stogie case of the election of members of the Legislature, and to provide for the appoint ment ol all executive and judicial officers in some other way, according to the South Caro ltoa model. The reasoning of Mr. Stuart's re-1 pun, nowever, goes muca lartner, ana poinn distinctly to restricting the right of suffrage, even for members of the Legislature, within very narrow limits. Hs denonnces the univer sal suffrage of .the free States, as having already resulted In the worst mischiefs, but our alarms will be moderated, npon learning that one of these mischiefs is the system of" universal edu cation, under which the children of the poor are educated at the expense of the rich." This, to the Virginia aristocracy, is undoubtedly very odi ous, and they mean to take efficient precau tions against suffering a similar affliction them selves. Just'about the time of the publication of this report of Mr. Stuart, we have Oe Bow's Review, the great organ of Southern political philoao pby, recommending that, while tbe right of suffrage should not be taken away from per sons now living at the South, who were born at the North, or in Europe, It should not be extended to such persons who may hereafter njigrate to the South. We have not seen the article In De Bow's Review, but we find It thus described and approved by the Richmond Lis patch ofNovember 14: " De Bow's November Review has an admira ble article, entitled the ' Perils of Peace.' The obvious danger of an immense Yankee Immi gration, which will abolltlonlze the border States at the ballot box, unless such restrictions are placed upon the exercise of suffrage as will prevent them from ever having a vote, are painted In letters of light. We have often referred to this danger as one which, if not provided against in time, will render all the blood and WUMMIIMKiMnHMMMMM tSWJtt ttOX GOT. MWASO. The following h.thjuply of-ths. Sews tar j b! Staid to a patrlollo address t DxfAKTMSNT Or" St AT, Washington, November 27, 1861, To the Hunod qfXete York and Sea Jersey. Rkterknd GEHTUtntN : The minute contain ing your resolutions on the condition of the country, which you directed to be sent to me, has been submitted to the President of the United States. . ' " I am instructed to express to you his great satisfaction with those proceedings, which are distinguished equally by their patrlollo senti ments and a purely Christian spirit It Is a just tribute to our system of Government, that It has enabled tne American people to enjoy unmolested more of the blessings of Divine Providence, which affect tbe material condi tions of human society, than any other people ever enjoyed, together with a more absolute degree of religious liberty than before the In stitution of that great Government bad ever been hoped for among men. The overthrow of the Government might therefore justly be regarded as a calamity not only to this nation, bnt a misfortune to man kind. Tbe President Is assured of the pnbllo virtue and of the public valor. But these are unavailing without the favor of God. Tbe President thanks you for your Invocations of that indlspenable support, and be earnestly solicits the samo Invocations from all classes and conditions of men. Believing that those prayers will not be denied by the God of our fathers, he trusts and expects that the result of the most unhappy attempt nt revolution will confirm and strengthen thu Union of the Re public, and nltlmatoly renew the fraternal af fectlons among Its members, so essential to a restoration of the public welfare and hsppt nes. I am. very sincerely, your very humble servant, William II. Skwirh. T.ECTCnKs The Commencement of a New Era. A large number of gentlemen cf this city, last night organized themselves into an association for the purpose of sustaining a aeries of lectures, to be given during the en suing winter, by Messrs. Henry Ward Bcecher, Greeley, Wendell Phillips, Emerson, Chapin, Bayard Taylor, and other able and eloquent men, who have never been beard in this city. Tbe organization Is intended to be permanent, and Is plentifully supplied with money and "bachbonf." The following officers were elected : JVesMenf Rev. John Pierfont.

Air Cameron Sagacity, In discussions touching tbe personal eharac ter of Mr. Cameron and bis qualifications for a Beat in the Cabinet, this journal has had no part We do not now propoje to touch upon these points. But In political sagacity as to the mode of conducting the war and term, natlng the rebellion, Mr. Cameron's measures and utterances are quite in advance of any thing that has emanated from other members of the Cublnet. His views ol the mode of dealing with tbe slaves of rebels are wise, sound, and patriotic. They commend themselves to the common sense of the people. We prefer to regard Mr. Cameron's position on this subject as taken fram a high regard for me weuare 01 ine country, rawer man in any interest of personal ambition. But if any other member of tbe Cabinet has a hankering after the Presidency, we strongly advlso blm to fol low Mr. Cameron's lead. Post Office Defartmext, AbtKinber 29, 18G1.

Happily, such a thicg Is Impossible, but if tbe slave oligarchy were allowed to have an Inde pendent nationality of their own, they would crown the personal enslavement of another race, by tbe political enslavement of their own. They would not long suffer the " poor whites," to whom they deny education, and whom they keep always In abject poverty by the use of slave labor, to exercise even in name, a right of suffrage already practically nullified by de nying to It the protection of the secret ballot The next step would be orders of nobility, as seen among the grandee planters of Cuba, to be followed by a monarchy, probably In the form of a European protectorate.

She purported to be from Havana and bound for New York, but at the time of her capture was heading for St Catharine's Sound. Her cargo consists of seven bales blankets, 4 cases cloth, 2 cases saddles and bridles, 3 boxes starch, 23 boxes tin, 120 boxes coffee, 20 barrels potatoes, 350 pigs ot lead, 30 bags ol shot, 1 box shoes, II bags arrow root, 1 case pistols, (revolvers,) and 2 cases of cavalry swords. The Mabel was formerly named the John W. Anderson, of Baltimore, at appears by the cer tificate of registry given at Nassau, N. P., found among bis papers.

WStf ANTK, TWEXTT THIRD SEW YORK RKOIMEST, ON A RECO.NNOlTKMNa EXFEDITION. Company K, of tho Twenty third New York regtment, encamped on Upton's Hill, a few day ago, In company with other troops, started on reconnoltcriog tourln thedlrecllon of Fairfax Court-Home, with the fierce determina tion to avenge the fall of their comrades of the Brooklyn Fourteenth, killed In the skirmish of Monday last, and to slay or capture any speci mens pt secush that might be unfortunate enough to lall in their path. They " sklrrcd tbe country round" for miles, but naty rebel was there to be seen. Despairing of finding the Black Horse Cav alry or their affectionate friends of the Eighth South Carolina Infantry, and determined that their steel should taste blood, they mado a number of brilliant and successful, though bloody charges, upon tbe farm yards and hen roosts which lay on their return p.ath. A large nnmber of feathered rebels were captured, almost every member of the company making one or more prisoners, which were Immediately put to death and into their haversacks. But one of tho rebels showed fight, he being an aged specimen of tho genus turkey, ne was, however, quickly dispatched by a blow over the bead with the butt end of a musket, an easier job than the digestion of bis body, which, we are assured, by one who partook of bis car case, bas not yet undergone that operation. Company K had all the fowls they needed on Thanksgiving Day. A IIEC0VN0I8SANCK. On Thursday, two companies of the First New York volunteer cavalry, under the com mand of Capt W. H. Boyd, went out on a re- connoiterlngxpedltlon towards Fairfax Court House, and when within a mile of It, they dis covered a large rebel force of Infantry and cavalry. Rifle pits bad been made across the turnpike, within which a nnmber of the Infan try were concealed, while they were sustained by a squadron uf cavalry in the rear. Our cavalry deployed through the woods, and threw out scouts an either flank, when a brisk skirmish ensued, which ended In the retreat of the rebels to tbe Court-House, after ono of their cavalry bad been killed. Oa our Bide nobody hurt, and all returned to their quarters. MILITARY 1PFOIXTMKXTH. The following military appointments were made yesterday:" Major R.

Tiik News from the South, Tvube Island, etc.- See telegrapbio accounts from New York of the news brought there by the Illinois. It Is not true that there are any works on Tybee Island, which command Fort Pulaski. The New York papers have the following additional Items, brought by the Illinois: Letters from Port Royal state that the Fed eral troops occupied Braddock's Point, at tbe southern extremlly.Ol Hilton Head Island, cap iturlng four rebel cannon; the spikes were re moved, and they were then in serviceable condition. Among the deaths at Hilton Head were the following: G. H. Hubbard, Eighth Maine regi ment; private irenan, cgnin name; private Nasb, Ninth Maine. The negroes in the vlolnage are holding high carnival. None are received by General Sherman except the very few who can make themselves uselul. Tbe rest, though they hang about tbe forts during the day, are sent back to ine plantations at nignt. iney Dring pro visions to the soldiers, which they sell at very low prices. Chickens can be had at twenty.' five cents a pair, and very fair bullocks nt five aouars apiece. Beaufort Is still deserted by white men- Three Union gunboats lie there, and others pass up and down the river occasionally. Tbe negroes destroy and carry off everything they can lay their bands on. Anything tbey think nterui they carry on to an island, where tbey are establishing a settlement of their own, and where tbey think tbey will be allowed to live In security- They have plenty of provlsionr. The crops are said to be heavier this year than for ten years past The rice crop was secured before the arrival of the expedition. Great quantities of cotton were stored In barns and storehouses. As many as two thou sand bales were seen on one plantation ready for market. General Sherman, however, re fuses to seize it. He says It Is not contraband of war, and he has no authority to seize any other property. Probably half of the crop, howover, was not flicked, or, If picked, not ginned, and would bo ost, as the negroes have no idea of doing any isoor since tncir usicmasiers nave neu. Secession Desolation in Missouri. The Springfield correspondent of the St Louis News writes : " From our last night's camping place (near Little York) we discerned seven fires all aronnd us. The nearest was a farm, where out buildings, grain stacks, and the house, were all fired at the same time. Friend and foe are treated alike ; farm-houses r corn-fields, fences, In short everything that might be of the least use to the Union army to tbe army whom they have always ridiculed publicly and feared secretly is destroyed, and a desert thirty miles wide Is separating us from the retreating foe. Where the band of Industry had commenced to placo Its mark of civilization, now only proofs of diabolical barbarity are visible." OSOftOI W. OTITIS OK TKX WAS.

Let the terrors of war bo turned-against the traitors;. -Jet inose terrors puriy ine ioui atmospnere oi treason; bnt we must love first of alt the wel fare of our Government, as the rebels love the welfare of their section, We must fight at earnestly tor the maintenance of this Gov ernment as our tamers ma lor us lormauon. A bank piesldent lately said In New York: " Take the loan of course we must take tbe loan. If the Government goes, everything goes with it" Ships mutt be seized If they belong to traitors. Let the right of habeas corpus be suspended when our liberty Is erfdangered by It If peace and the supremacy of the Gov ernment can only come by a thorough Bnbju gatlou of tbe rebels, I say, amen. Applause. If peace can only come by emancipation of alt the slaves, Isay amen. Tremendous applause. We cannot split hairs. We must consider how to save the ship. If slaves are property, they are neither more nor less than other property. If you can confiscate a horse, why not a man! Nor need we be nervous to free them with slow matches in their hands. Tbe rebel's slaves, being property, for the same reason are to be released, because they are bis slave i and may be turned against the Government If in no other way peace can be restored, wby should we hesitate to liberate the slaves? Braxtpa Bragg said, "We shall show you that we are stronger than you, and that we will beat you In the long tun." Tell me wbo Is the murderer of tho' dead boy. he who used the rifle or he wbo gave It to the rebel? I tako It, my friends, that the debate Is closed. I take it that the Instructions of Sec retary Cameron to Gen. Sherman, applause, "that the rebel's slaves shall be set free, that the Government will make hasto to conform to the wishes of the people." The whole key note was struck In 'the proclamation of Gen, Fremont, applause, who is now for a -moment absent from the scene of action. Wo wait until the cloud that obscures-him lifts and blows away, for the Government must be susta ned. Should any Boldler undertake to force any slave forward Into slavery or back Into Blavery, let him be dismissed; and. If an officer, let blm be cashiered. Applause. We learnt more experience last April than ever be fore, and Fortress Monroe has been our chief school-house. There pedagogue Butler ttught us to call chattels contraband, and Gen. Wool taught us to call, them men. Applause. Pa tience, lorbearance, conuaence, earn uen. mc Clellan. These are tbe golden words of tbe war. When the supremacy of the Government Is restored, I bold It to-be beyond debate, the question of many years will be settled. We shall uk, with one voice, what kindled tbe fire? I do not think It will be enough to say that the rebellion was caused by a few defeated politicians. Had this civil war been instituted by a party, things would have been different Mr. Douglas was as true as Breckin ridge was false, and both were party leaders. There are those who believe that this war was caused by other questions, but 1 believe what Calhoun sa'd: "That wben we lose control of this Government, we shall seek to destroy It" Is the cause of the war. I believe that Mr. Stevens meant what be said In July, 1839, " that the union ought to De suneervient to Southern institutions." I believe that Mr. Reverdv Johnson knew what he said, " that the leaden of the rebellion had plotted it for thirty years." While all slaveholders are not knaves and traitors, and bad men, we shall act alter our rebellion Is over, as a people who have pur chased a peace at a terrible price. You must remember that we are Anglo-Saxons, and that the development of liberty is the mission of onr race. We will be surrounded by freemen if we believe that freemen are essential to our liberties. True then to our Anglo-Saxon blood, I doubi not that emancipation will be effected under the law In this country. When England said " let these slaves go free," they went free at midnight, praising God ; for their chains were not broken; they dwindled away.
