"communications. For the Press. me negro. It Is one of the great misfortunes of onr country, that no true thing uttered on the sub ject of slavery, is likely to gain a fair hearing. The majority of the people have been trained to cast it aside, as unimportant, visionary, or fanatical. It is one of the Inst conditions of a people doomed to ruin, that they are given over to blindness—unable to see, and therefore unable to remove, the causes that are under mining the foundations of their institutions. Many such nations have perished. Is ours to be added to the number? We have in this country between four and five millions of negroes. No matter whether we like it, or dislike it; they are here, in these vast numbers. Let us consider this fact. If they are an advantage to the. country,it is well for us to know it If they are a source of dan ger, it will do us no good to lie ignorant of it. IIow many of them are free ? How many are slaves? What is their condition? their char acter? their intelligence? their physical pow er? their love of lilwrty? their attachment to the country? their influence upon society? their capacity for improvement ? What ques tions, these fflr citizens, or for statesmen! How many have so studied the subject that they can give an intelligent answer? About four millions of this race are slaves. They are held in bondage in those States that have risen up in the gnat rebellion. In those States that have been partially loyal, the pro portion of slaves is much smaller than in those where the rebellion is still flagrant. Accord ing to Mr. Seward's estimate, in his recent let ter to Mr. Adams, the population in the rebel lious districts is divided as follows;—“a white population of four and a half millions, and a negro population of three and a half millions, chiefly slaves.” And of the latter, he says,— “their sympathies, wishes, and Interests, nat urally, necessarily, inevitably, fall on the side of the Union. Everywhere the American Gen eral receives his most useful and reliable in formation from the negro, who hails his com ing, as the harbinger of freedom.” It is quite obvious that the negroes, though they had no part in originating the rebellion, and have been permitted to have little to do with it since, have nevertheless, iuvoluntarily, a most intimate connection with it. Tresidcnt Lincoln most truly spoke for one race to the other, when he said,—“but for your race among us, there could not be war, although many men engaged in it, on either side, do not care for you one way or the other. Without the insti tution of slavery, anil the colored race as a ba ils, the war could not have an existence.” Kvrrv min will lu>ur u-iinow th.it tl«;a *a ♦ The “everlasting negro” has been the cause of division and strife, in church and State, ever since he began to be taken by force from his native land, and brought to these shores as a slave. Like the home of Pharoah, when he had taken Abram’s wife,we have been “plagued with great plagues !>ecause of them.” And this is a sufficient apology, if any is needed,for asking the people to enquire—not as philan thropists—but as American citizens, who love their country, and desire to save it,—What is the negro race to do? Or what will the people of this country, of other races do with them ? WILL THEY REMAIN IN THIS COUNTRY? This question is placed before that of their freedom, because there arc some who would make their freedom depend upon their coloni zation. Let it be met fairly. Let not the people be persuaded to liberate them, with the expectation they will be colonized, in Central America, or elsewhere, if such a scheme must fail. Their/orrfb/e expatriation against their con sent, is out of the question. As slaves it would not be done. As freemen it co«M not lie done, No one advocates such a plan. The Christian world would rise up against it. So that noth ing but voluntary emigration is thought of. The recommendation of the President, and the acts of Congress, provide for their coloniza tion only “only with their own consent” No other class of [ample have such strong local attachments as the negroes. As much as they desire freedom,they generally shrink from seeking it by flight The associations that sur round them often have a stronger hold upon them than do free homes upon others. Their knowl edge is necessarily of a limited and local kind. They are therefore altogether out of the reach of that class of influences that have caused great emigrations, like that from Ireland. No case can lie found in modern history, where a whole race have voluntarily emigrated from the land of their birth, even under the most pressing motives of fear or hope. IIow' then can a [ample who have never been taught to act all at for themselves, who know so little of each other,so little of the world.and so little of the responsibilities of self-control, be ex peeled to unite together in seeking another Country. Are they to lie influenced by others and per suaded to go? Let us remember that those who will have the greatest influence over them, will not advise them to go. Frederick Doug lass, and others like him, arc strongly opposed to emigration. The free negoes, North and South, have their homes, their churches, and other local attractions dear to them. In Charleston they own $1,501,870 worth of prop erty; In Philadelphia nearly as much. The idea that they can be persuaded to give up ev erything, and seek new homes, in some far off wilderness, just to gratify men who are preju diced against them, is altogether visionary. There may be a colony founded in Central America. Large numbers may be induced to go there,—though that is doubtful. But ad mit it; and then reflect that if we could per suade titty thousand to go every year,the num ber remaining here would still be increasing, instead of diminishing, and we may judge whether the whole project is not utterly im practicable. We may as well make up our minds, first as last, that the negroes will remain in this country If we consider it an evil, it is one we have brought upon ourselves. And as we cannot escape it, the only wise course is to see if we cannot change it into a blessing. There are those who fear that, if liberated, they would overrun the North. But all such fears are idle. Emancipation would at ouce stop all emigration to the North. The condi tion of tlie free negro is bad enough here; but it is far worse in the slave Suites. And yet there are many more free negroes there, than in the North. They regard the South as their home. The climate is more congenial to them, Uian ours. And they will all lie wanted there, to develop the wonderful resources that free dom would quickly call into life,—resources that have so long been dormant under the blighting curse of slavery. They are acclim ated. They can endure labor under a South ern sun. The planters of the British West Indies, who are sending over to China for lul> orers, would lie <glad to receive them; but there will be enough for them to do in this country, ami thev will have no di-sire tn im anywhere else. Wc shall learn their value as laborer», when we recognize them as wen.— There are no prejudices that will not vanish, when they block the way of profit. The path of godliness is easy when it become* the path of gain. CAN THE NEGROES FIGHT? It is a somewhat remarkable fact, that the very men who, not long since, were terrified at the danger of negro insurrections, and talked of the savage ferocity of the negro character, as exhibited in the Ilaytien Revolu tion, are now opposed to arming the blacks, on the ground that they are too mild, and timid, and weak, to be of any service 1 The Ilaytien Revolution, though it has been misrepresented by prejudiced historians,put*beyond question the capacity of the negro nice for military service. There has been little opportunity for them to prove this, in this country, owing to their condition, and the prejudice against thein The Regiment raised recently by Gen. Hun ter, has been disbanded, because the Govern ment refused to recognize or pay them. Hut though they have always been met with some thing of this spirit, their record, though brief, has upon it no stain of dishonor. In the Revolutionary war, the slaves were excluded from the army, lest the employment of a portion of them should make the others discontented,—and for other reasons. Henry Laurens, a distinguished member of Congress from South Carolina, wrote to Gen. Washing ton. March 10, 177b,—“Had we arms for three thousand such black men a* I could select in Carolina. I should have no doubt of success in driving the llritish out of Georgia, and subdu ing Fast Florida, before the end of July.”— Lieut. Col. John Laurens, proposed this plau to the Mouth Carolina Legislature, without success. He wrote to Washington, announc ing his failure; and Washington replied, July 10, 1782, “I must confess that I am not at all astonished at the failure of your plau. The spirit of freedom, w hich at the commencement of this contest would have sacrificed every thing to the attainment of its object, has long since subsided, and every selfish passion has taken its place. It is not the public, but pri vate interest, that influences the generality of mankind; nor ran the Americans any longer boast an exception. Under these circumstan ces, it would rather have lieen surprising if you had succeeded; nor will you, I fear, have better success in Georgia.” Hut though the Southern colonies, some of which furnished more traitors than troops, would not allow the slaves to he armed, Wash ington himself disregarded the resolve off'on. press so fur as it related to/ree negroes. He wrote to tlie President of Congress, Dec. :i, 1775, —“It lias been represented to me that the free negroes w ho have served in this army, are very much dissatisfied at being discarded. As it is to be apprehended that they may ask employment in tlie ministerial army, I have presumed to depart Irom the resolution re Rltecting them, and have given license for their being enlisted.” Accordingly free negroes were enlisted in several of the colonies, and served during the war. As at Lexington and Bunker Hill, so in sulisequent battles, they stood side by side wdtli the w hite soldiers, equals in dangers and honors. A battalion was sent from Connecti cut, of which honorable mention is made in history. Ahd llliodc Island furnished a regi ment, w hich, as Gov. Sprague truly says, "was [Wonounced by Washington equal, If not supe rior, to any in the service.” Arnold, in his his tory of l’hode Island, says,—“the newly-raised black regiment, under Col. Greene, distin guished itself by deeds of desperate valor.” In the war ol 1812, the subject of arming the negroes received but little attention—eith er liecause there was no necessity for it, or for other reasons. The British had some compa nies of blacks, that had done good service be fore, but upon whom they charged their de feat at New Orleans. It is not easy to tell whether the negroes behaved worse than the whiles, or whether the latter sought to hide their own shame by accusing the former of cowardice; but tlie prooabUity is that there was no difference between them in that respect. Gen. Jackson hud armed a body ol negro slaves, and their courage and faithfulness has never linen denied. His address to them is well-known,—Soi.dikks : From the shores of Mobile I collected you to arms. I invited you to share in perils, and divide the glory of your white countrymen. 1 expected much from you, for I was not uuinformed of those quali ties which must render you so formidable to an invading foe. 1 kucw that you could en dure hunger, and thirst, and all the hardships I of war. I knew that you loved the land of your nativity, and that, like ourselves, you had to defend all that is most dear to man.— Hut you hare surpassed my hopes. I hare found in you, united to those qualities, that noble enthusiasm, which impels to great deeds." Many of those slaves were killed in the bat tle that followed, as will appear from the rec ords of Congress, to whom some of their masters applied for compensation. A rational conclusion, drawn from this re Tiew of the past, is tills;—the negroes may be profitably employed by the government. That all of them would make good soldiers, is not probable. That many of them would, cannot be doubted. That most of them, with proper training, under experienced officers, would be sufficient for the defence of tbe forts, and for tified towns, there can be little question. The rest of them could be employed as laborers— “unarmed auxiliaries.” And though inferior to the white race in some respects, this dispari ty is compensated for in their familiarity with the country, and their ability to withstand the climate. Their labor is all that now sustains the Rebellion, as it enables every white man in the South to join the confederate army. That all within reach of our lines would be glad to join us, is undeniable. Let it tie proclaimed that all will be received, and liberated, and our army will be increased, alxivc all its losses, as it fights its way to the Gulf. “Had this policy been adopted a year ngo,” says Thurlow Weed, that prince of conservative politicians, “at least half a million of slaves, who have licen at work for the rebel armies, would have lieen relieving our own worn out troows from ex hausting drudgery, weakening the enemy, and strengthening ourselves in a corresponding de gree,” RIIAI.I. TflE NEGROES BE FREE? On this point, little need bs raid. If me. em ploy them in our serriee. me must liberate them, the government cannot hold slaves. If we confiscate them, they will be free. Confis cation and cm mancipation are one. If me erer hope to restore the union, and establish peace, slavery must he abolished. That Institution is itself war,—war upon the slave—and war upon free labor. The two cannot coexist. They can no more come in contact without explosion, than can tire and gunpowder, The conflict is inevitable, as well as irrepressible. There can lie no peace between freedom and slavery. The rebellion is but the culmination of a disunion that has been festering for years. It will do no good to heal it on the surface, unless it can be cured in the blood. That cure can only be by eman cipation. The President stands ready to pro claim it,—waiting only for the people to give tlie word. Emimcijxttion is the only iafeguard against foreign Intervention. The great effort of the rebels in Europe is to give the impression there, that we shall not abolish slavery. So Yancy declared in England. So the apostate Marry has just been writing to France. Let this he understood in Eurdjie as settled, and the Southern Confederacy will lie acknowleg ed at once. And, on the other hand, let the PresUtcut make n proclamation of univurtul freedom, with compensation for all w ho are loyal to the Union, and henceforth there is not h government in Europe that would dare in terfere against us. On this subject, public opinion in Euroi>e is a unit,—and there is not a government that would risk itself in opposi tion to it. The words of the Journal des lie hats, one of the most influential presses in France, or in Europe, are prophetic as w ell as admonitory.— ‘•Only one obstacle presented itself before the South, when she asked for recognition,— the violence of pulilie opinion against slarery. There is the lesson I hat tee strongly recommend to the attention of the North. On the very day that the North should forsake that holy cause, wherein lies at the same time her hon or, and her principal element of strength, the public opinion of Europe would become indif ferent, and would make no further opposition to the acknowledgement of the South. * • • “A decisive step must be made towards the enfranchisement of slaves; blood must not have been shed in vain; that war must be a glorious couquest of civilization, and not a useless butchery. “The Republican party has saved the Union. Its victories give it strength enough to perse vere in the path whose entrance was marked by the election of Lincoln, and whose rational end is the defeat of the partisans of slavery in the North, and the proclamation of the princi ple of freedom for all men on the American soil.” Let these words of wisdom be pondered well by every patriot! They were written several months ago, by one of the truest of our friends iii Europe. He sees that emancipation is the only safe policy, there, as here. The South, as a last resort, may offer it, as the price of re cognition. It cannot be done by us after in tervention lias been commenced. It cannot be done, after ours is exhausted in hopeless struggles. What would now be a living (low er, will then be but au idle threat. The right blow, struck too late, is wasted iu empty air. It is the [iart of men to shape, "the logic of events''—not to wait for it. Slavery may*be destroyed by such a waiting—Imt we shall not be saced by it, l’haraoh thus waited, until the first born was dead in every house; and even then he “revoked” a reluctant consent, and the song of deliverance could not lie sung, until it echoed over his slaughtered hosts. Is a like fate in store for us ? Must the obelisk of Free dom stand upon a nations grave? It is for us to answer. Providence has placed our desti ny in our own hands. W. GRAND TRUNK RAHWAY.
