Report of the Secretary oi War. The annual report of Mr. Secretary Stanton to the President, h very long, full and elabor ate. The first part has been given in our tele graphic columns. Of the remaining portion we can give only those parts of the most en grossing public interest. A GENERAL M.-RVET. From a survey of the whole field of operations it is apparent that whatever disasters our arms may have suffered at particular points a great advance has nevertheless teen made since the commencement of the war. When it began the enemy were in possession of Norfolk and every part of the southern coast. They held the Mississippi, from Cairo to New Orleans. Now the blockaded ports of Charleston and Mobile only remaiu to them on the seaboard: and New Orleans and Memphis have teen wrested from them. Their possession of Vicks burg obstructs the Mississippi, but it is to them of no commercial use. Their strongholds on the Tennessee and Cumterland rivers have been captured. (Jen. Andrew Johnson, as mil itary governor of Tennessee, holds Nashville. The enemy have been driven from Kentucky, West Tennessee, Missouri, part of Arkansas; are fleeing before Grant in Mississippi, and ail their hopes of Maryland are cut otf. In com mercial, political, and strategicy points of view more success has attended the Union cause than was ever witnessed upon so large a thea ter, in the same brief period, against so formi dable an enemy. TbeUwisu, Jlwaaaaare now In the field under able commanders, stronger than ever, resolute and eager to be led against the enemy, and to crush the rebellion by a vigorous winter cam paign. The armies of the Potomac and of the West stand ready to vie with eacli other in quickest and heaviest blows against the enemy. Taught by experience the rain of inaction and the batardof delay, a spirit of earnest activity seems to pervade the forces of the United Slates beyond what ha« hitherto been exhibit ed. In the numerous battles and engagements that have occurred, our armies in general dis play the courage and determination that should inspire officers and soldiers lighting in defense of their government. Many gallant lives have teen lost, and many brave and distinguished officers have fallen. For the dead, deep sorrow is lelt by the government and people of the United States. ENLISTMENTS AND DRAFTING. The adjutant-general's office is charged, a mong other important duties, with the busi ness relating to enlistments, recruiting and drafting militia. Under your calls of July and August there are already in the field over four hundred and twenty thousand new troops, of which three hundred and ninety-nine thou sand are volunteers, three hundred and thirty lhu umuMiim iii v\ iKmu nave v U1 uincereu jor three years or during the war. It will be re memhercd that the call was made at one of those periods of despondency which occur in every national struggle. A chief hope of those who set the rebellion on foot was for aid ami comfort from disloyal sympathizers in the nor thern states, whose efforts were relied u|>on to divide ami distract the people of the north, and prevent them from putting forth their whole strength to preserve tiie national exis tence. The call for volunteers and a draft of the militia afforded an occasion for disloyal persons to accomplish their evil purposes by discouraging enlistments,«nd encouraging op position to the war and the draft of the sol diers to carry it on. ARBITRARY ARRESTS. Anxiety was felt in some states at the pro bable success of these disloyal practices, and the government was urged to adopt measures of protection by temporary restraint of those engaged in these hostile acts. To that end pro vost marshals were appointed for some of the states, upon the nomination of their governors, to act under the direction of the state execu tive, and the writ of Habeas Corpus was sus pended by your order. By order of tiie depart ment, arrests were forbidden unless authorized by thestateexecutive or by the judge-advocate. Some instances of unauthorized arrests have occurred, and when brought to the notice of the department the parties have been immedi ately discharged. By a recent order, all per sons arrested for discouraging enlistments, or for disloyal practices, in states where the quo tas of volunteers and militia are tilled up, have been released. Other persons arrested by mil itary commanders and sent from departments where their presence was deemed dangerous to the public safety, have been discharged up on parole, to be of good behaviour, and do no act of hostility against the government of the United States. While military arrests of dis loyal persons form the subject'of complaint in some states, the discharge of such persons is complained of in other states. It lias been the aim of the department to avoid any encroach ments upon individual rights as far as might be consistent with public safety and the pres ervation of the government. But reflecting mipds will perceive that no greater encourage ment can be given to the enemy, no more dan gerous act of hostility can he perpetrated in this war. than efforts to prevent rec ruiting and enlistments for the armies,upon whose strength national existence depends. The expectations of the rebel leaders, and their sympathizers in loyal mutes, that the call for volunteers would not be answered, and that the draft could not be enforced, have failed, and nothing is left lmt to clamor at the means by which their hopes are frustrated, and to strive to disarm tiie gov ernment in future, if, in the chances of war another occasion for increasing tiie military force should arise. THE CONTRABANDS. It will be seen that the Quartermaster’s De partment upon which, under the law of the 17th July, providing for tiie employment of colored persons, the charge of such persons is chiefly imposed, ha- not found itself burdened with tlieir tare, hut that it lias, on the contrary, de rived valuable aid from their labor, and in a considerable portion of its field of operation* has thus far suffered from a scant, rather than from too great a supply of such labor. In Louisiana, where, at one time, there were ap prehensions of embarrassment from the number of refugee*, the reserve ofa tract of rich land along the railroad to Berwick's Bay, opens up ! a territory in which many thousands can be profitably employed, if placed under proper regulation and control. At Port Royal such persons have been extensively employed in the work of the Quartermaster's Department and in cultivating some thousands of acres of the sen islands of the coast, the products of which are used in the support ofthemselvesand fami ' lies. In the opertatons of the army on the ; James river, and the Potomac, in the (ortiflca ! tion of Washington, and as laltorers. teamsters, j hostlers, in the landing and shipping of stores, j they have been of great service: and the de | maud lor tlieir labor has exceeded the supply j available. AliOl'MENT FOR EMPLOYING NEGRO LABOR. With this presentation of the past operations and the present condition of the War Depart ment, the duty required of me by act of Con gress to make an annual report, is in a great measure fulfilled. It is seen that a force has been placed by the people of the United States at the command of the government to maintain its authority more mighty in all the elements of warlike [tower than was ever belore arrayed under one banner. How shall that force be employed ? To smite the enemy on every hand, to attack his armies and strongholds, occupy his ports, clear the great rivers of the west of his obstructions, ami pause not until he is sub dued, is our plain duty. Above ail it is our duty to disdain no legitimate aid that may save the lives of our gallant soldiers, diminish tlieir labors, provide for their wants and lessen the burdens of our people, i No aphorism is more universally received than that “the sole object of a just war is to make the enemy feel the evils of his injustice, and by Ids sufferings ameud Ids ways; he must therefore be attacked in his most accessible quarter.’’ The [lower of the rebels rests upon I tlieir peculiar system of labor, which keeps ! laborers on their plantations to support own j ers who are devoting their time and strength I to destroy our armies, and destroy our gov ; eminent. Whenever that system is in hostility ’ to the government, it is, in my opinion, the -J Mill, <>■< >1111 V\f !«u IRC down the system, and turn agniii't the rcliels the productive power that upholds the insur rection. Rightly organized in the recovered territo ry. the laborers of the reiiel Stales will not on ly aid in holding fortified positions, but their labor will, as in India, free the white soldier from the most unwholesome exposure of the South. They will cultivate the corn and fo rage which will feed onr cavalry and artillery horses, and save the country a'portion of the enormous burden now attending their purchase and transport from the North. This cultiva tion would have been of greater advantage to us on the southeastern const than even that of the great staple of the Sea Islands. Probably the people who remained upon these islands, within protection of our armies, could, under wise control, have supplied all the forage needed this year by the forces in I the Department of the South. The full ra- ! tion lor a horse weighs twenty-six pounds, that of a soldier three pounds. An army, well organized and equipped for active operations, with a due proportion of cavalry, artillery, and baggage trains, will have not less than one horse or mule to every four soldiers; so that the weight of food for the animals is more than double that of the ra tions of tile men. How important an aid, how great an econo my, in a long contest, therefore, would there lie in raising by this cheap lalmr the greater 1 part of tin* forage alone for the southern de- j partment, thus, for a greater portion of our ; wants, transferring the base of supplies,now at New York, to Hilton Head, or New Or- | leans. The department has found it difficult to transfer tin- laluir from one mi l of the seal, .0' war to another. Local and family ties seem to Ire very strong with these people; and witii all their faith in the power and good will of our military commanders, it was found difficult to get.volunleer laborers to leave Port Koyul for other depots. A population of four millions true to the interests of'.he Union, with slight assistance from the army, will, under proper regulation and government. Ik* of the greatest assist ance in holding the territory once recovered. The principal staples of the south are the products exclusively of their labor. If pro tected iijKiu tlie lands they have heretofore cultivated, with some organization, and with support from small detachments of loyal troops, they would not only produce much of what is needed to feed our armies and their trains, hut they would forever cut oil from the rehellion the resources of a couutry thus oc cupied. The rebel armies move w ith ease through portions of the border states, living upon the couutry in which our commanders find no sup plies. The people bring forth their hoards and oflter them to the rebels for sale or gift. Protect the laboring population, who are a majority in the greater part of the South, in the possession of the land and its products, und this great advantage will, for whatever portion of the country we occupy, be trails terrea to us. As soon as the coast is tho roughly occupied, ami the people organized, trade will revive. Cotton, rice, sugar, and other products will be exchanged by the pro ducer for what he needs. Their w ants will he supplied direct from the northern factories, and the cultvation of the great staples w ill enable them to pay for what they use. A per fectly free trade may tints again grow up be tween the North and the South, and with greater or less rapidity it will spread over the whole country as our forces succeed in meet ing and dispersing the rob'd armies. The greater part of the whole country formerly producing the sea island cotton is now thoroughly restored to the Union. The laborers are there—the soil and climate. It needs only assurance of protection to revive the cultivation of the staple, as well as to pro duce vast quantities of corn and forage for our troops. Since this war must he conducted by marches and battles and sieges, whv neglect the best means to make them successful and their results permanent? It is worthy of no tice that thus far the portions of territory which once recovered, we have most firmly held, are precisely those in which the greatest proportion of colored men are found. By their assistance our armies will be aide perma nently to operate in and occupy the country; and in labor for the army, in raising its and their own supplies, full occupation can be giv en them, and with this there will ire neither occasion nor temptation to them to emigrate to a northern and less congenial climate. Judging by experience, no colored man will leave his home in the South, if protected in that home. All possibility of competion from negro labor in the North is avoided in giving colored men protection and employment upon the soil w hich they have thus far cultivated, and the right to which has been vacated by the original proprietors, deeply involved in the crimes of treason and rebellion. No great territory has been permanently reduced, w ith out depriving the leaders of the j>eople of their lands and property. It is these that give pow er and influence. Few men have command ing genius and talent to exercise dangerous Influence over their fellow men without the adventitious aid of money and property. By striking down this system of compulsory la bor, which enables the leaders of the rebellion to control tile resources of the people, the re bellion would die of itself. 1 nder no circumstances has any disposition to servile insurrection been exhibited by the colored population in any Southern State, while a strong loyalty to the federal govern ment has been displayed on every occasion, and against every discouragement. By the means suggested, rebellion may lie disarmed and subdued swiftly and effectually, and the lives of our own people saved from slaughter on the battle-field. By the occupation of all their forts on the Mississippi and the sea coast, a market will be opened in every rebel state for the industry of our people to supply the wants of the army, and also of a loyal popu lation. in exchange for the valuable products of their labor. Anotiier point of attack is by armed settlements upon the vacant govern ment lands in Florida and Texas. Thousands in the Northern and Western states are impa tiently waiting the signal lor military mov< nient to plant their homes in the best territory of this continent, and bring it back to the Uni. n as loyal states. So far from the South ern states being invincible, no enemy was ev er so vulnerable, if the means at hand are em ployed against them. If your proposition for compensated emancipation, and a voluntary return to loyalty, be blindly rejected, still the proper application of the means at command of the government cannot fail to accomplish the suppression of the rebellion, and a restora tion of those peaceful relations which were designed to be established forever on this con tinent by the union of the states.
