A. Noble Speech or tienersl John A.
Logan.
General John A. Logan, before the war
a member of Congress, and one of the most
Influential leaders of the Democratic party
in Illinois, now a Brigadier General in the
Federal army, was on a visit to bis home
in Southern Illinois last week, nnd, iu a
recent speech at Carbondale, uttered the
following noble sentiments?in glorious
contrast to tbe partisan harangues of tbe
Ricbardsons and Aliens in the Vallaudig
bam State Convention last week.
The Carbondale Time* gives the follow
ing report of his speech, which it says was
tbe best of bis life, and drew forth .rounds
of applause from bis bearer*:
The circumstances under wbicb we meet
are strangely different from those of any
other period of our history At other limes
we met to descant upon tbe advantages and
blessings of this great and good Govern
ment, and the best political measures to
perpetuate free institutions; now the great
question is, bow sbnll we save it from tbe
vortex of rebellion, from tbe whirlpool of
treason wbicb is threatening to overwhelm
and utterly destroy republican liberty ! In
regard to the be>t method of crushing the
rebellion and ending tbe war, almost every
one has bis own views, nnd not a few are
ready to lose con6dence in tbe ability of
tbe Government, because this or that policy
was not adopted, because this or that de
feat occurred, or in consequence of some
imaginary or real mistake that has been
made. This is nil wrong. Tbe men who
are gnidingtbe sliipofStato have done tbe
best they could, nnd are entitled to our
confidence nnd sympathy. Tbey are but
men, and we sbould strengthen the bands
of tbe President and our Generals in this
trying hour, by overlooking mistakes and
using our influence in trying to impart to
others confidence in those on wbose sboul
ders rest so much responsibility. How lit
tle do we know of the toils, tbe cares and
the anxiety of tbose brave hearts who have
labored with all tbe'.r might to crash oat
the monster Secession.
These are times' that demand the most
heroic energy and undaunted bravery.?
Every patriot in tbe land is called upon to
come to tbe rescue of ibis country, to do
bis part in this struggle, and tbe man who
fails to lend bis influence nnd energies in
ibi* crisis, who lingers while liberty bleeds,
is worthy of a traitor's doom. This is a
Tearful war, tbe influence of wbicb will be
felt for Ages. It ts a struggle between
might, between republicanism and anarchy.
It i.ttoo late now to iuquire into tbe causes
that brought on tbe war?tbe day of com
promise has long since ended?it is by the
sword, tbe bullet and the bayonet that tbi
national difficulty is to be settled. We have
a conning nod powerful foe with wbicb to
contend?he is in fearful earnest, and has
been all tbe while?the die it cast, the
Government must be preserved. It may
cost millions of blood nnd treasure, but we
must couquer. Tbe world ia looking with
anxious hearts to.tbe result" of this war,
tbe prayers of the down trodden portion of
the Old Wotld are ascending to God for the
preservation of this Union?this hope of
toe world. All tbiugs else nluk to insig
nificance compared with tbe solution of
this problem.. Party lines and partisan
feelings shotild be swallowed up in patriot
ism. In Ibis connection, I must say that 1
am sorry to see men in Illinois forget their
country for their party. While your broth
ers are falling in their country's service |
like leaves of autumn before tbe wintry
blast; while tbeir bones are bleaching-be
neath a summer sun; while tbe nation is
suffering throes of agony, and crying for
help, you are wrangling over conventions
ana candidates. Iu tbe name of God, fel
low cllisens, cease this clamor,Vlfirn poli
tics over to old men and women, and tally
to tbe standard of. your country. I was
once a politician, but so help me God, I
will never sheathe my. sword, for courtly
halls or civil honors, until my couotry is
saved from tbo bloody tornado that is des
olating tbe fairest Undon earth?never un
til ^beuldfMg floats in niuropb,from eveiy
billtop on Columbia's soil. These are my
politics, and all there is in the army :at
Jackson. Indeed, I am surprised to find
men talking of anything else.,
Your country'calrs for aid, nnd it needs
it now It will accept voluntary assists
ance if it can get.it, if not, men will be
forced into the ranks. There are many
reasons why men tio not.go to war, and
very few why some men should not go.
Frivolous reason* are often eiven for not
volunteering, but the most powerfutreasop
is, they do not want to go I When 1 bear a
man say be will go only with a certain
man, or in a certalu company or regiment,
or that he will not go into an old regiment,
or that he will not go without an office, I
feel there is something wrong about that
man's bearu, il* don't love.blf qouqtryjas
be eBoutd." '"YStSf country needs you now
worse than at any other time, and if ybu
old regiment. Why object to filling the
place, of^tljo, brav*;boy? w&o Ml at Bel
mont, .Don el ton or Sbllob, whose bodies
sk?p.in soil contaminated by tbe footsteps
of rebels? " In sickness or health, in the
camp or on the battlefield, the best, place
for tbe young soldier, is by the side of the
veteran.
I am fof * tijjoroos proiecotion of the
war. to do this we must have men, and
thousands of them. If necessary, I would
call out avery able-bodied man in the Joyal
Stales?tarn the Government oyer to our
mothers, wivefc'ftod'Mkhgbters: I would
giv* those who wanted \rtgo an opportuni

T would atrerch the arujy from the At
lantic to the Rocky Mountains, and with
fixed bayonets end io aolid phalanx I would
give the order, "Forward, march 1" to the
Gulf of Mexico. Every man I met, who
was willing to fight for the Government, 1
would place a mmket in bit hands, lethim
full info the ranks ; and to every one who
did not, I would give the order, "Double
quick time, march 1" I would drive every
one of them before me, and those who
would not submit, when we reached the
Southern boundary line, I would pitch head
and heels Into the Gulf.
From the Cincinnati Qaxetto.
What Trill become of the Emanclpa
t td uiackil
This is now the agitation of those who
would mike slavery a support of the rebel
lion. In the first place the emancipation
proclaimed by the President depends upon
our military occupation of the South. It
will be effected only when enferced by our
armies. When the emancipation is pro
claihied, it wilt Invite the blacks to aid u
in taking possession of the country; ami
then, as the President says, "the Executive
Government of the United States, including
the military and narnl authority thereof,
will recognise and maintain the freedom of
such persons." The general emahcipa:ion
will be conditioned practically upon our
possession of the country, and it guaran
tees the blacks their freedom and the pro
tection of the Government where they arc.
It is Slavery that sends black men to the
North. The South is their paradise. Ev
ery instinct aud prejudice of the black mau
is against the North. Against these be
oomes to the North for freedom. Aud as
soon as he reaches the free border, be set
tles down as close to it aa he dare; often
r eking recapture rather than go farther
North. They who are boro free, prefer to
live in the South; even with all the jealousy
to which the existence'of slavery makes
them subject. In spite of the natural hos
tility of the slavehuldicg class to free ne
groes, and the various legislation of the
slavo States, to rob, banish and enslave
them, the majority of the free negroes are
still in the slave Slates With freedom io
the South the natural drift of the blacks is
toward the tropics. It has been stated that
the offer of a passage North was declined
by the negroes at Hilton Bead ; and it is
probable that their attachment to homeand
country has vastly more influence in keep
ing them in slavery than all the provisions
for the return of fugitives.
The blacks will prefer to remain in the
South. The conditions on which emanci
pation will be carried into practical effect
will protect them there. If the whites
would drive them from the country, they
will not have the power. But will any be
so iosane as to think of driving out the la
boring population? What would the coun
try be worth without labor? What would
the property in Ohio be worth if the labor
ing people were banished? Labor is the
very foundation of society; and to propose
to strike it out would be equivalent to?
the suicide of the body politic. If any were
so foolish as to entertain such an idea, it
could not be accomplished, from its abso
lute impossibility. The laboring popula
tion is bound up with the fate of the land,
And must continue so} whatever their sta
tus.
The freed blacks will be in the country
where they were slaves, and will be under
the necessity of laboring for their subsis
tence. The wealth and subsistence of the
landholder will depend on the labor of the
blacks. These mutnal interests will at
once establish reciprocal relations. This
would naturally draw the free blacks of
the North to the South. The change would
be heneficlal to the slave States, and to the
trade with tnem. It Is easy to demonstrate
that it is m >re profitable to hire labor than
to own it. The planters cannot refute the
figures on tbi3 question. If any deny tba?
it is better for the laborer, they had better
be owoed, and thus live up to their doc
trine. It is belter for trade with other
parts, becanse the free laborer is a much
greater consumer of manufactured goods
than the slave.
It will be better for the'land. beoause it
will greatly increase the numbers of free
| holds. Dut the greatest benefit will be to
the mass of the white population of the
*1ave States, by removing the degradation
from labor which makes the poor whites
lower than the slaves. The preteose that
the blacks are naturally indolent and will
not labor when free, is no longer entertain
ed among intelligent and honest men. The
free blacks in the North are as industrious
as any class. No other race could main
tain themselves so well, both materially
and morally, under the same virtual ex
clusion from the most desirable kind) of
labor, and their other disabilities. Slave
ry is founded On the indolence of the whites
of the South, nod on the industry of the
blacks.
The President and Nembfri of the
Cabtuet Serenaded.
Wa^hisotok, S*?pt. 25 ?A large crowd
assembled last night and serenaded the
