Let the oommittvo muke an elaborate accompanied- wlcli resolutions denouuo dom all who find fault with our moat excellent President. For Instance, tbe last Congress (in July, 1862), passed a law to confiscate tbe prop- erty of certain rebels, That Congress, though very wise boJy, did not possess as muoh eg- the wisdom as our groat and good President, proof of this we need but refer to tbe fact tbat tbe Congress aforeiaid provided that under this law, trial should precede eoovlotioo and of forfeiture, and that guilt should bo proven, not Worso still, it ottered an amnesty pie repentant rebels; It mercifully gave them six- days in which to accept It, and provided far- and tber that onr most noble President might bus- pond for a period thr operations this law as our einres advanoed southward, sd as to afford as opportunity to accept ;pardon. Worse still, this law actually applied to no ooe but the The -Aud it is aeto-ishiur that It applied to est. them everywhere, North and South; in Spring- first field, Illinois, as well as. Springfield, Tennessee, But worse still; it did not wantonly effect the be rights or property of Union men, women, the obildrep, or lunatics, la any seotion of the ent ooontry. ' That Congress, strange its il may seem, did a not peroeive that the way to end tbe rebellion and restore ' affectionate relations between the floe, sectlona was to plaoe the Uuion men, women, ehildron, and the Insane npon a perfect footing Hon equality with the vilest traitors In the land! be Thai Congress believed that the erime of re- using obedience to the usurpation of Jeff.

I Thai 1 mio-ht Congress spared the Women and Children ' also I shielded from harm the Union men who still I adhered to the national symbol of protection 1 an weaaoessi jsui congress bad adjonrned.

He was almost as incorrigible as James I.

Bosides, when you have secured freedom to our African feiiow-oltliaos sonth of ns. von mav pos sibly have the honor of taking part in carrying the same boon to a similar dais In Tennessee and Kentnoky. : I doubt not our noble President will in due time adopt suitable means to ascer tain the will of tbe Lord in this bobaif . Indeed, it seems to have been made known already to some of the lesser lights. Last week a grund unnvention oi tne loyal women ot America as sembled In the olty of Nw York. Eaoh dele gate had conceived an idea; and, under tbe inspiration of tbe great ocouion, thoy have com manded our magnificent President to proclaim freedom throughout all the ends of tbe earth. I doubt not, at tbe proper time, be will so pro claim; aodtbe twenty thousand troops wblohbis exoellency Governor Andrew Johnson was re cently authorised to reornlt in Tennessee will soon be ready lor tbe good work of giving piaoli ol freedom to our enslaved fellow-souoirymeo. male and female, of Afrioau desoeut, When that time cobjos Memphis will be a lovely city. Its walks and its promenades will bo illuminated hy tbo smiling faoos and brilliant eyes of the graoeful and accomplished eons and daughters oi Lincoln and Liberty; of Darkness and Da homey. Trne, our Stats constitution and i.tws, like those of Illinois and other loyal Slates, win not permit, tree negroes to come witnin our State, nor enfranchised slaves to remain there; but from military necessity, or, as a high tfQi- oiai expresses it, "irora tne neeettilale ii ol tho thing," they will not be permitted to ro main. Tbo plan recently adopted In South Curjilna ol selling them the lauds of the reb el might bo adopted, and thereby Memphis might aeon become "a variegated city." Onr wuitoaad colored brethren and sisters might thus furnish a i example of that "freedom and iraternity" which so many nuhappy Northern spinsters sincerely regard as tne only means ol compromising the present unfortunate distinc tion of color. You Should bv all means diss a rejnlntinn In favor of giving such rebul farms aud town lots as are not needed for our colored brethren to our Christian frleuds of the North who desire to live among thoir colored friends, particular ly to that numerous aud respectable class who think that both races will be improved by a cross of tbe Anglo Saxon upon the pure Guinea. "When this cruel war is over" how our psalm singing brethren from tbe Church of the Puritans would eniov a confederate farm on Big Black, Red river, the Arkaneas or Poutob artiaiu. Whon the rebels are diaarmod how meek and lowly, doeile and penitent tbev will be, while beholding our northern brothers occu pying tbelr mansions and Illustrating: ths bean- ties of General Banks's apprentice system. vvnu wnai impunity uene.al butler would ride from bla plantation on Moon Lake to bis rancbe on Deer Creek! .Then would be mado manifest the absurdity of those Conntr- head croakers who foolishly insist that while military power can put down a rebellion, moral power alone can eradicate its consequences and keep it down. It is trne, they cite tbo examole of Veudee, which in araa, is only about one for tieth part of Frar.oe. There, we admit, the peas aotry believed their religion was endangered, and history records thai they defeated six or seven of tbe best appointed armies which ths rrencn republic, in tbat warlike age, could hurl against them. It is also true that afterward, when (Jaraot was made Minietsr of War. be quieted tne people by assuring tbem tbat tbe; should be uadistnrbed In tbetr religious faith. Tbese mischievous faultfinders, to give further force to their insidious asanlts upon our worthy President, point aUo to Poland, la whli-h the nue or rebellion are em burulng; but they forgot that tbe Czar of all the Knistaa Is In all respects interior to our noble President, and is wholly Ignorant of the true meaus ot auietlnir a disaffected people. It never occurred to the aforesaid Czar that to squelch a rebellloa effect ually tne cause must be removed. Had he studied the history of rob el I ion in this country uo wouiu nave aiscovorea tnai we always ascer tained the cause, tie evil, tbe sin which cave a pretext to tne insurgents, ror example: Uur- lug the administration of General Washington portion of the people of Pennsylvania got up rebellion aboni whisky. It was crushed out by "coercion," but the aasaclous statesmen ot that day determmod to strike at tbe cause. Tbe result is tbat the people ot that noble common wealth have ever since esohewed whisky and turned their attention to ooniraots.
