Letter from Fsirmont Concerning
the President's Proclamation. .
Faibmont, Va., Sept. 24, 1802.
Editors' lnteUiffltelsir^ ^
The proclamation^ <{f PresidentLinoolo
bas caused a shaking among the. dry boue9.
Some gentlemen about here are "down
upon" it. They pay it is just what Neeson,
Haymoad, Drunkard, and Kidw'ell told them
it would be?an abolition war. I want the
people to mark these gentlemen. I want
them to examine their antecedents, and see
If their loudest and deepest curses, during
the whole war, have not been directed
against the 4,d?d abolitionists," and
against the Northern people generally.?
upon examination it will be found that
those who.nowrojSpose and-denounce the
President's Proclamation, are the very per
sons who think more of tbe niggers than
they do of wbite men;,iqore of slavery ilintt
they do of tbe Union; men wbo tbink Af
rican Slavery is tbe Constitution, and wbo
from their arguments show that the lives
and property, (except slaves) of rebels are
as nothing when compared with tbe pres
ervation of tbe Union; but that the moment
tbe slave is touched, tbe Constitution is
violated, and the "abolitionists" have play
ed tbe d?1 generally. Such arguments are
a mere pretext for loyalty. They who use
I them are not now, and never were loyal.?
They can't be.. They ara traitprs too cow
| ardly to avow their real sentiments, They
sail under tbe garb of Unionism for safety,
I and Iiko the nursed serpent, sting their
j friends to death. I fcaVe some respect for
an open, brave enemy, but only contempt
for a treacherous friend. Men wbo always
put in an if in their endorsement of the
President and the war, are not to be trust
ed. The truth, inahoft, is, that none are
true, except those who are unconditional Un-,
on men. No man can name a condition
upon which I would desert the Union cause.
Now, Jet.us. flee what position those gen
tlemen-assume, who denounce the* Tresi
dent's proclamation. I declare boldly that
it is ? position ' of interest and, sympathy
Tor the rebel# in arms against tbrOffveta
ment; it is more than that, because it is
giving ,the^n<aid and?comfort; and |s there
fore treason', they are doing and saying ex
actly what Jeff. Davis, Stephens, Cobb
Floyd, Mason, Slidell, Toombs, and all the
other chief traitors will" say and do when [
they read the proclamation.
I Let it be remembered, that President ]
Lincoln's Proclamation does not in any
| sense nor in any way injure, destroy or
disturb Union men in their rights of prop
erty of any kind, nor is it destructive of j
the property of rebels who are now in arms
to destroy the. Government,-unless they
refuse to lay down their arras and resume
their allegiance by a certain day. The
proposition of the President is fair and.
honorable and just. If .rebels will now, or
before January 1, 18G3, cease to fight
against the Government, against yon lind
me and every other loyal man, their slaves
ami ?iremt?|ng elao thy,h?yf ; pot
if not, if they still persist against light and
knowledge, and still wage their unholy
war againgt ui, their slaves ?rj to be taken
from them. I say Amen to ii.
The object of tbe President is to bring
them to their senses. He wants to touch
them where they will feel It?touch their
pockets and their earthly God?Slaoery. I
say the President is right. Make traitors
feel the war. We'must be in earnest If
we would succeed.
I repeat the . Prpclatqsiion It only
against rebels. Loyal men are to be paid
for what they lose. Can anything be more
just and equitable? The man who at ibis
day defends the cause of. rebels, is lost.
He is. joined, to bis idols-^let him alone.
But why should any man do it who pro
fesses toJ>e loyal? Would any loyal man
do it? I do not believe be would. We
shall kcow wheje,to j?lace, th^ man who
'denounces Mr/^iSncoVn's f*roctaraatiap.
We will put blm down among the class
who, like the clan spoken of by the Apos
tle, " wonld not believe though one rose
from the dead-'* They will not believe.
?Inhere is no hope for them.
- But let all Union men; as one man, cling
to the President. He is oar only hope.
There is no safety elsewhere. -When we
give him up,'we shall have no olace to go.
All is raarkj darkness and gu>om except
in the support of the adp>lo\stfation. God
Will we abandon all that can late urT?
cordial lupporl of tta? l.galaod coaMitatad
iatbo^ll|>?,ftf It i< *v
"ibte t-anchor. The storms aboot our Ttuel
are increasing. We are on the wild ocean.
Mutiny now it utltr detlruelion. We moat
pall the ropes while the President gives or
ders, or we shall all go do wo together. God
grant that we shall not become insane now
when all depends upon united action. The
Government is worth everything to us. If
we suffer it to be destroyed, oar children
and oar children's children will curse
us forever. -1
The Proideai'i Proclamation*
[From the Philadelphia Prtcs?DonglM paperj
The rebellion is at an end I The President
has done a good deed, at a good time. He
has pronounced the doom of Slavery on the
American Continent. After dallying with
thin great sin, because he dreaded to do
violence to the interests aad wishes of any
portion of the people, he has accepted the
lesson of experience, and ends the war by
patting aa end to the ciuse of the war. If
.this rebellion has taught us anything, it is
that by slavery we have been defeated in
obr national progress?by Slavery the
richest and fairest portions of our Republic
have been kept a desert aad a wilderness
?by slavery a great part of the people
bare bern estranged from one another?by
slavery our institutions have been preven
ted from developing the blessings our
fathers Intended they should bestow.?
Slavery has been the perpetual disgrace to
the American name. Slavery has bloomed
into sedition and ripened into war. Why
should it live ? It has menaced our dearest
rights, and has robbed us of our dearest
kindred. This fearfnl monster, iutertwining
itself around the vitals of the Republic,
retarding its growth, destroying its use
fulness, making its very existence wretch
ed, at Inst sought to take tbo life which
had nourished it, and to rend the bosom
on which It had grown. In self-defence
we bave wrestled ia its embraces?wrestled
in blood, war, carnage, desolation, aad
slaughter?-aod all ia vain. The struggle
is now for life or death* If slavery lives
the Republic dies. The Republic must
live, and so slavery must die. This is the
meaning of the President's proclamation,
and bis words record slavery's inevitable
doom.
President Linooln has followed the logi
cal course of events In issuing this procla
mation. He has neither beeu too soon nor
too late. He had a multitude of interests
to consult, all of which involved the social,
commercial, and political happiness of our
people. He found the institution of sla
very sustaining a great agricultural later
est in many States ot the Union. Cotton,
sugar, rice, tobacco, and other staples,
seemed to live upon its labor, and vast Euro
pean and American enterprise on its pres
ervation. The bamlets of Lancashire?
the counting-rooms of New' York-?the
mills of Lowell?the looms of Praoos; to
the uttermost ends of the earth?in India
and Australia?the safety of the cotton
crop and the protection of cotton labor
were matters of comfort and neoessity,
raiment and bread. It was not an easy
thing to proclaim a decree so universal in
its application, and so radical and even
disastrous in its operation. And to the
honor of President Lincoln be It said, that
he did not make this proclamation until
the masters of the cotton crop and cotton
labor compelled him to do so by their trea
son and violence. Slavery might bave
passed away in its own good time, under
the gentle influence of benificent free in
stitutions, and the world would not have
fel the change. But this did not satisfy the
ambition of its lords, nor minister to their
cupidity. They grasped at universal em
pire and sought to overthrow a free Re
public, that a Republic with slavery for Us
corner-stone might be erected on its foun
datlons. How- much they have done to
accomplish this wild and terrible design,
the dreadful experiences of the past two
; years?the blood that has been shed?the
devastation tha', has been inflicted?the
! general ruin that has everywhere extend
I ed?and the sad history these days are
i creating, will testify. That history is at
an end. The President turns a new leaf,
and attbe head of the psge writes?Emanci
pation.
He has written emancipation, and there
it will last forever a tribute to bis own
wise statesmanship and the fortitude of the
American people. The patience and self
denial we have manifested from tbe begin
ning, In fighting this war with amuller
weapons, while tbe great engine of death
j still remained in the arsenal, must forever
be a wonder. But as we have been patient
I and self-denying before, let us be active,
vigilant, and unrelentiug now. If aojr one
i ever dreamed that out of this chaos of war
j and destruction peace might suddenly
come as a compromise, or by submission,
let him dismiss it from his brain like an
idle dream that it was. This proclamation
of the President ends tbe rebellion. It will
not do so to-day, or even to-morrow, but it
will end it in a very shore time,and in a very
summary manner. We are now patting the
axe to the root; heretofore we have conten
ted ourselves with trimming tbe boughs,
and breaking tbe branches forgetting that
new life was constantly oozing from tbe
soil. It does not come as a wild exhibition
of despair, nor as ft mere effort to rouse a
drooping public sentiment or rally beaten
and disheartened columns. It is the manlfes
ation of Northern power; it is the result of
overwhelming victories. We have shown
the rebels that the sword is potent with
us; we have shown them that, without!
going beyond tbe mere voluntary offerings
of lite aod treasure, we have laid their |
conscript Confederacy at our feet,and now
we propose to crash where we have eon
qaered, and to take away tbe life of -the
great criminal who has been indicted
and convicted at the bar of Christian civ*
ilization.
Letter from Sergeant M'Cawlejr of the
Fir#t Vtrglttia lufautrjr.
Camp Parolk, Sept, 19th, 1862.
- Once more I take my pen in hand to let
you know that I km Still in the land of tbe
living and'in good health? for which I feel
thankful to kind Providence. I bad my left
arm shot off at the battle of PortRepublie
It Was afterwards amputated about half an
inch below the elbow. I Was 'In the hos
pital near the battle fielfrfbr seven weeks.
4fter the battle I was sent to Lyneh*
burg, where I staid more than a week and
was then sent to the.Libby prison at Rich*
mond. I staid there more than two weeke
and was then sent to Bell Ii/le, where I re*
maioed till Teleased on the 13th Inst. My
arm is 'healed up bat-*ts-?till very ten*
ider. . It does not feel so awkward as I sup*
posed it would* l ean do almost anything
but wash my right tiand and arm, but tbe
ritoys do that for me.
~ There #?re nearly six~thousand paroled
tbe-samatidM 1 was and seot to this earn p.
We have a good time here. Tba camp
is a Urge one and contains over ten thou- !
sand roea. It is on the Chesapeake Bay. j
We oso go do^ru on Abe shore at low tide
and get, all the oysters we want. . There are
als4 plenty of crabs and fish, aod we are at
liberty to roam around at our pleasure.?
All kinds of fruit can be had very chfap
and any one who baa money can live well;
Everything was.vcry dear, in the Cooled
eraoy. Tea cost sixteen dollars per pound;
butter one dollar per poubtf; egg8 one dol
lar per dosen; coffee conld not b* bad ar
any price. Pies of a very poor quality sold
for fifty cents and sometimes more. Three
peaches or apples cost 25 cents. A loaf of
bread that could oe bought for five cents in
Wheeling cost 2o cents; a second-hand five
dollar pair of boots was sold there for 20
dollars.
The Confederate doctor said be *paid 40
dollars per month for boarding and
then did-not get as good aa the common
soldiers. There are thousands of families
in the Confederacy who were in easy cir
cumstances before the rebellion, who are
now starving for something to eat, and it
ia my opinion If the war lasts much lon
ger, we will starve them out if we cannot
subdue them by the force of our arms. I
think they are making the final struggle,
and it is a desperate one. They have every
thing in the shape of a man in the field,
and every thing that can aid their cans?
is subverted or taken possession of by their
Government.
Richmond is one vast hospital, for near
ly every building fit ia need as & hospital.
There is scarcely any medicine there, so
thousands die for the waot of it. Rich
mond is, Indeed, a den of misery, bnt not
withstanding all the suffering, there is n
perfect reign of terror. The citizens were
not allowed to speak to ns, acd one lady
who attempted to do so was arrested and
put under guard in the prison. There are
plenty of Union people in Richmond but
they have to preserve silence. If a non*
commissioned officer is caught in friendly
conversation with the Yankees (as they
call us,) be is speedily reduced to the ranks.
