t. . -- v I' v fA,. -r -V. t CADIZ, OHIO, WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 2G, 18G2. TERMS,-S1.50 VOLUME 29, NO 30. and Weighed in the balance and found wanting, is the verdict returned bj the people against this present Admin istration. History furnishes no par allel to the remarkable political revo - lution of the present year. There are causes for all this. The administration refused an hon orable compromise designed to save the country and avert the calamities of civil war. Weak, incompetent and dishonest men are appointed to positions, both civil and military, because of their shrewdness in political knavery. The Chicago Platform ia placed a bove the Constitution and laws of the country. Public plunder is winked at by those whose sworn duty it is to protect the purity of the government. The financial department of the government is weakly managed. Abolition incendiaryism raged like a consuming fire in our halls of legis lation, widening the breach between the North and South and rendering a re-union of the States almost next to impossible. Theater! rights of personal liber ty and the enjoyment of private prop erty arc disregarded. For the first time in six hundred years the right to tho writ of habeas corpus is denied in the face of open courts and unobstructed laws. For the first time in a free govern ment, men are clandestinely taken from their homes and carried to dis tant and unknown bastilcs without the privilege of a trial by a jury of their countrymen. The rights of a free ballot have been interfered with by taking men immc diately before the election to camp, ibecau.se they were Democrats, and leaving ethers at home to vote because they were Republicans. Tho people's hurd earned money lias been appropriated to buying up flhvea and setting them nt liberty. The loial institutions of tho States, which have been held sacred by all preceding administrations, have been interfered with by our negro-loving President and Congress. The Constitution of our Fathers, the bond of Union between the States Tias become as a rope of sand in their hands. The President has issued proclama tions which no sane man will claim have precedent or constitutional au thority to back them, but on the con trary, are in direct violation of both. Yet these are but a few of the counts in the indictment. The Democratic party denounced these wrongs and appealed to the coun try for justification. Their appeal has been responded to in such thunder tones, as wakes despots, corruption ists and disunionists tremble as did lielshazzar when he beheld the hand writing won the wall. That the ex tent of tie great political revolution may be fully appreciated we givo the Democratic gains in the several States which have recently held elections: Ohio Indiana Pennsylvania lows Xaw York Michigan Illinois New Jersey Me'sachusetts Delaware Wisconsin Minnesota - 62,000 82,524 68.511 15,000 119,000 21,000 36.000 . 19,000 20.000 1,500 9000 -. - 7,000 The change; in the Congressional delegation has been still more marked and emphatic. In the present Con gress the Democrats were almost with out a representation, but in the lower hranch of the next will have a good working majority, notwithstanding the Abolition legislatures most infamously jerrymandered the States. , As nearly as can be ascertained at present the next House of Representatives will stand as follows: COHSEBVATIVES.

The Nrirectn hii la I Became f Them, asiel lite Fee pie sire Payl hr lhem. - We publish elsewhere an article from the Newburyport (Mass.) Her ald, (Rep.) in reference to the negroes, whom the Abolitionists are so'anxious to set free. It is an article of thought, and will beget "reflection. If the Abo litionists, by 8tirringup sectional strife, and inaugurating the "irrepressible conflict," have brought the calamities of civil war upon us, what further miss chief will they not inflict by the eman cipation of four millions of blacks? The few that are already emancipated cause great annoyance to the army and to the people of the free States. Ap peals are made constantly for the re lief of these runaway blacks. The Government feeds them, but can not well clothe them. We have already published appeals from Cairo, Corinth, Hilton Head and Washington for do nations of clothing for women and children to keep them from perishing. On Thursday last tho New York Tri bune had a card from the agents of a society to take care of the runaway blacks and demonstrate that they are capable of becoming valuable citizens, which says: "There are about a thousand in Hampton, Quartered in lonls, and a Mill larger number at Norfolk 780 at Norfolk, and 380 qur- lered in a large storehouse and in barracks. Could ihe benevolent look upon these pitia ble objects of charitv. taitered and shoeless, destitulo of decent clothing, and compelled to sleep on hard board, bucks or ground, without a pallet or scarcely a rag under ihcm, their hearts would bleed, 'and ejes unused to weep o'eiflow with Icars.' " What is to become of these poor creatures? The free States are 'deny in them a shelter and home. Even such Abolition Governors ns Andrew, of Massachusetts, says the Enquirer, denies them adrr ission into that State rf philanthropy and negro equality. The only future emancipation premises ti'Cin is utter extinction. Indeed, one of the Abolition papers has done as much to influence the public mind as any other against the South the New York Evening Post declares in a re cent article that "as the Indians were crowded westward and out of our bounds by tho irresistible advance of the white man, so will the blacks be whenever the powerful protective sys tem with which the slaveholders have guarded them is removd. It is the slaveholders who have preserved the negro race from decline among us." So the whole result of the ogitation of slavery by these New England mor al and political pests is to be the ex tinction of the black race among us, at the cxpenso of hundreds of thous sands of lives of white mon, and loss of health of hundreds of thousands of other white men, a taxation that will oppress the living and their posterity, an alienated people, and, it may be, a broken Union, and on its ruins a mon- archial government. We ask the peo ple, where is to bo the compensation for all that? What Do Von l'runose to Dot When the result of the elections in Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Indiana, be came known, one of tho Republican dailies asked: "Now, Messrs. Demo crats, you have obtained a victory, what do you propose to do with it.'" The cuo was taken; and before even ing of the same day upon which the paper referred to was printed, we could hear, in 'damnable iteration,' (from party parrots; who mouth and splutter incohorently what they are imperfect' ly taught, and don't at all comprehend) the question, 'What are you going to do?' Tliere is, by the way, nothing more trying to one's patience, than the insolence and impertinence of ig norance and stupidity. It is hard to endure the follow who 'takes the Tri bune,' or the Cincinnati - Gazette, and assumes, without other resource, to discuss the affairs of the option. ; He is unbearable ; His realing simply in tensifies his ignorance, and heightens his impudence. He ought to be kick ed and sent to hia work. ! "What do you propose to do?" en quires the Cincinnati Commercial. If this question were asked by an incendiary, of men who by superhu man effort had arrested ft conflagra tion, and quenched the flames, when a city was half destroyed, tho obvious reply would be: "We propose to save what is left, and as soon as practica ble restore what is lost." We have pondered that reply, and think it a specially fit one to make to the Com mercial. Vij..u' 'it:.,t , . , . .. : :' If. ever p7i linoe the first ia stitution of parties, defined its cred and purpose so clearly as to leave no shadow of doubt in any rational mind as to either, that party Is the Demo-. cratio party of 1862. "The Consti tution as it is, and the Union as it was' is the sum and substance of our creed and endeavor. And by the blessing of God this Democratio idea shall prevail over the whole land, or those interest ed may prepare to meet the alterna tive. So wills a power still more po tent than Presidents, Congresses or Governors; it is the behest of the Ma jority. That majority cannot be murdered by a frenzied assassin on the street; nor imprisoned in a Bastile; nor made mute by a Presidential edict, Let those interested take notice. But the Question recurs: 'What do you propose to do?'. We propose to destroy the Republi can nartv, utterly and forever. Until that accursed rule is broken, Constitu tional Liberty and Constitutional Union can have no existence; for Re publicanism is the implacable foe of both, and the destruction of both seems to have been its special and only mis sion. We must extirpate that mon strous delusion, that horrible fanati cism, consigning it to present obloquy and future infamy. We propose to vindicate the Consti tutional liberty of American citizens. We design to restore and maintain the writ of Habeas Corpus, thereby doing away with arbitrary arrests and Gov ernment Bastiles. We intend that the press shall be emancipated from its present thraldom, and that the gag shall be taken from the lips of the cit izen. We propose to restore the Union of the States, and to that end we will re verse the Legislation of tho existing Republican Congress, just as speedily as it is possible to do so in conformity with the Constitution and laws. Re peal Revocation of every net, Legislative or Executive, which is tinc tured with that most accursed of all abominations the Chicago Platform is to be the resolute endeavor of the Democracy.

Patriotism and philanthropy are the two great particular virtues which tho party of the Administration do most affect. The one is best exemplified, probably, in the army contractors; the other in the negro-worshipers. Patri otism puts millions in its, pockets; phi lanthropy crushes those whom it folds in its embrace. We have heretofore called attention to tho fact that our negto philanthropy destroys whatever it patronizes, and the following is a good exemplification. It is taken from tho Washington correspondence of the New York Journal of Commerce: "It is officially announced that lor some lime past the poor freed negroes brought from Virginia, who are now virtually owned by the General Government, have been dy ing at their quarters at the rate of six per d v: and it has been found necessary to have the vouncrer children of these contrabands apprenticed, the duty of depriving them of tiieit liberty Having lauen upon uenerai v acts worth-" In freeing these negroes the Gov ernment has deprived them of the pro tection of those who were interested in protecting them. It tired of them as soon as it gained possession; and now neglects them until they die, or turns them over to a new slavery to those whose interest it will be to wear them out before the day of their liber ty arrives. Negro hatred may be very cruel; but God protect the African when ho falls into the hands of his friends. Cin. Enq. XCS-Puck mules will be used to a great extent this winter to carry sub sistence.

A number of gentlemen from the West passed through our oity yesterday, on their way home, bavmg recently teen released from the Old Capitol Prison, Washington City, where they have boen confined for near ly three months as State prisoners. Their names are uon. Andrew uuu, oi uenion, 111, Judge of the Cn cuit Court in his Dis trict, arrestfd while boldina; Lourt: Uon. John 11, Mulkey. of Cairo, 111., Judge of the Court of Common 1 leas; l)r ilarcus l. Koss. of Tatuarao, Ill.i I). A. Mahoney, Lsq., of Dubuque, Iowa, editor of the Dubuque HeiaUl, and U. BDewsrd, xwq., oi rauneiu, Iowa, editor of a weekly paper there.' The two gentlemen last named have been kept in the Old Capital prison since the 21st ol Au gust and Ihe others since the Oth of Septem ber, previous to which they had been kept for some time at Cairo. They were arrested on warrants signed by the Secretary of War, hut in which no' charge was set forth. During the whole term of their imprisonment they vainly cn deavored to learn of what they were accu sed but not only did the Assistant Judie Advocate General, the Assistant Secretary of War and Secretary Stanton himself deny their very reasonable request, but actually desired them to make statements in their own vindication without a knowledge of their alleged offense. Furthermore, their coun sels were not permitted to see the papers iu their case and the accusations against them if such documents existed. They were twice taken before the Judgo Advocate for hearing, but remained without any light thrown on the cause of their mysterious in carceralion, or being heard in their own de fense. When, at length, they were dischar ged "honorably," as the ceitiQcate signed by some suboidinate officer, read, they were required not only to take tho oath ol a'.legi ance, but also to iwear that thry would not in stitult or cause to be instituted any tuits againtl any authirities of the Uutled Stuiet or of any loyal State for their imprisonm'nt. The fact that some parties in the west had brought suits lor lalse impiisonmeat delayed their discharge lor some time, as the Judge Ad vocate said nothing could be done umii tho Secretary of War was consulted. The re suit of the consultation was, apparently, the incorporation oi the above clause ia the oath. , When asked to sign thia document some of the prisoners grew very indignant and refused to take such ad oath, but as some were in 'ailing hea'lb, and did not know how long i hey might be kept in durance,- finally by advice of tbeir counsel, complied and were released but are yet ignorant of the charges upon which they were arrested, if any there were. The r treatment in prison Was not bad, but they Were obliged to furnish their own pi o visions and were not permitted to hold private converse with those visiting them to officer always being present. Their cor respondence was watched and it waa only by strategem that tbey could communicate with their friends at borne, as tbeir letters were, after being read, destroyed, returned or eon. flcatd. On of the guards was imprisoned for allowing the prisoners some trifling liber ty. The lives of the prisoners were con stantly endangered by the carelessness of the guards in the barrack below, several balls bavin, oome up into the prisoners' apartment, discharged front muskets below. Mr. Mahoney exhibited to us his shawl, per forated by twelve bullet holes, and a ball which bad passed through it while used by him as a pillow, and lodged ia the ceiling above. ' lie charges do intentional firing, but gross carelessness, from which the prisoners might at any- moment lose their lives. Tbey suffered other serious inconvenience and the health ol all was more or less im paired by their close confinement These gentlemen inform us that since the elections all the political prisoners in the Old Capitol prison have been discharged. Horrible Execution The Itlc.leil Murder. From the Palmyra Mo.) Courier. Saturday lat, witnessed the performance ol a tragedy in the once quiet and beautiful city of Palmyra, which, in ordinary peare ful time, would have created a profound sen sat ion throughout the entire country, but which now scarcely produces a distinct rip ple upon tbe surface of our turbuUnt social tide. It will be remembered by our readers lhat on the occasion of Porter's descent upon Pal myra, he captured, among other persona, an old ani highly respscted resident of this city, by name Andrew Allsman. This per. eon formerly belonged to the Third Missouri Cavalry, though too old to endure U tbe hardships of very active duty. lie was, therefore, detailed as a kind of extra or spe cial Provost Marshal's Guard, or cicerone making himself generally useful in a variety of ways to the military of the place. Being an old resident and widely acquainted with tbe people of the place and vicinity, he was frequently called upon for information touch ing tbe loyally of men, which he always gave to the extent of his ability, though acting, we believe, ia all such cases, with great candor, and actuated solely by a con icientiou desire to discharge his whole duty to his Government. His knowledge of the surrounding country was the reason of his being Irequenily called upon toact as a guide to scouting parties seut out to arrest disloyal persons. So efficiently and successfully uid he act in these various capacities that he won tho bitter hatred of all tbe rebels in the city and vicinity, and they only awaited the com-1 ing of a la vol able opportunity to gratliy their desire for revenge. Tbe opportunity came at lust, when Porter took Palmyra. That the villiann, with Porter's assent, satiated their thirst lor his blood by the deliberate and pre determined murder ol their helpless victim, no true loyal man doubts. V hen tbey kill ed hiui, or how, or where, are items of the act not yet revealed to the public. Whether he was stabbed at midnight by the dagger of the assassin, or shot at midday by the rilla ol the guerrilla; whether he was hung, sn'i his body hidden beneath the scanty soil of some oaken thicket, or left for bogs to latten upon, or whether, like the ill laied Wheal, bis throat was severed from ear to ear, and his body sunk beneath the wave, we know not. Hut that be was foully, cause lessly murdered, it is useless to attempt to deny, hen General MciSeil returned to Palmy ra, after that event, and ascertained the cir cumstances under which Allsman hud been atducted, he caused to be issued, alter due deliberation, the following notice: 'Palmvua, Mo., Oct. i, 18U2. "Joseph C. Poi ter: "bia Andrew Allsman, an seed citizen of Palmyra, and a noo combatant, having been carried Irom bis home by a boni ol persons unlawfully arrayed against the peace and good order ol tbe State ol Missouri, and which band was under your control, this is to notify you that unles said Andrew Alls man is returned unharmed to bis family within ten days from date, ten men who have belonged to your band, and unlawfully sworn by you to carry arms against the Government of the United States, and who are now in custody, will bo shot as a meet reward for tbeir crimes, among which is tbe illegal re straining of said Allsman of his liberty; and, if not returned, presumptively aiding in bis murder. "Your prompt attention lo this will save much sulleiing. Yours, &c, "W. ft. 8TKACHAX, "Provost Marshal General of Northeast Missouri. "Per ordor of Biigadier General command ing McNeil's column." A written duplicate of this notice he caused to be placed in the bands of the wife of Joseph C. Porter, at ber residence in Lew is county, who, it was well known, was in Irequont communication with her husband. The notice was published widely, and as Porter was in North east Missouri dining the whole of the ten days subsequent to the date of this notice, it is impossible lhat, with all bib varied channels ol information, he re mained unapprised oi Gen. McNeil's deter mination in the premises. Many rebels believed the whole thing was simply intended as a scare declaring that McNeil did not dare (!) to carry out the thieat. Tbe ten days clasped, and no tidings came of the murdered Allsman. It is not our in tention to dwell at length upon the details of this transaction. The tenth day expired with last Friday. On that day ten Kebel prisouern, already in custody, were selected lo pay with tbeir lives the penally demand ed. The names of the men so selected were as followes: Willis Baker, Thomas Ilemston,. Morgan Bixler, John Y. McPheoters, of Lewi Conn ty; Herbert Hudson, John M. Wade, Marion Lair, of Kails County; Captain Thomas A. Snider, Monroe County; Eleazer Luke, Scot land County; Hiram Smith, Knox County. These parties weie informed on Friday evening, thut unlese Mr. Allsman was return ed to lit family by one o'clock on the follow ing day, they would alt bo shot ' at tii-l hour. 11 1 Most of them received the announcement with cotnposeure and indifference. The Ktv. James 8. Green, of this city, remained with them during that night, as their spiritual adviser, endeavoring, to p-epare tbe in for their sudden entiance into the presence ol their Mnltnr. A little after eleven o'cldck A. M. the next day three Government wagons drove lo the iail. One contained lour, and each of the others three rough, board coffins. Tbo con demned men were conducted from theprison and seated in the wagons, one upon each coffin. A sufficient guard of soldiers accom panied them, and the cavalcade started for the fatal grounds, t loceedlng fast to Main street, the cortege turned and moved slowly southward as far as Matone's livery stable: thence turning east entered the Hannibal road, pursuing it nearly to the residence of Colonel James Culbertson. There throwing down the fences tbey turned northward, en tering tbe fair grounds (half a mile east of tne town) on toe west aid, ana driving witb ia the circular smphitheatrica! ring, paused for the final consummation of the scene. Tbe ten eolfios were removed from the wagons and placed ia a row, sis or eight feet apart, forming a line north end south about fifteen paces east of the central pagoda cr music stand, in the eenter ring. Kaob coffin was placed upon the ground, with i B foot west and bead east. Thirty soldisrs of tbe Second M. S. M. were drawn np ia a single line, extending north and south, - fa oing the row of coffins. This line of execu tioners ran immediately at the east base of pacoda, leaving a space between them and tbe coffins of twelve or thirteen paces. He serves were drawn up in line upon either flank of these executioners, -j . . ... , ; : : Ths arrangements oorapleated to, doom, ed men knelt upon the grass between their M.

Tbey were .... . . . , nexriy an nrra ana unaaunma. i wo or toree only showed signs of terpidation. Tbe most noted of the ten was Captain Thomas A. Snider, of Monroe County, whose capture at Shelbyville, in the disguiee ol a woman, we related several weeks since, tie was now elegantly attired in a suit of black broadcloth, with white vest. A luxurious growth or beautilul hair rolled down upon bis shoulders, which, with his fine personal appearance, could not but bring to mind tbe bandsom but vicious Absolom. There was nothing especially worthy of note in the appearance of the other. One of them, Willis Baker, of Lewis County, was proven to be the man who, last year, shot and kill ed Mr Fzckiel Pratte, his Union neighbor, near Willtamstown in that county. All the others were rebels of lesser note, the partic ulars of whose crimes we are not familiar with. A few minutes after one o'clock, Colonel Ktrachao, Provost Marshal General, and Rev. Mr. Rhodes, shook hands with the prisoners. Two of them accepted bandage's for their eyes, all the rest refused. A hundred spec tators had gathered around the amphithea lor to witness the impr-f-aive scene. The stillness of death prevaded Hie place. Ihe officer in command now stepped lor ward and gave the word of command 'Keady, aim, fire!" The discharges, however, were not made simulianeous probably through want of a previous understanding of the ordeis and of the time at which to fire. Two ol the rebels fell backward upon heir coffins and died instantly. Captain Snider sprang forward and 'ell with his head toward the soldiers,, his face upward, his hands clasped upon hi- breast, ana the left leg drawn hull way up. He did not move again, but died immediately. He had rf quested (be soldiers to aim at bis heart, and thev obeyed but to implicit y. The other seven were not killed ontrichi; so the reserves were called in, who dispatched them with tbeir revolvers. The lifeless remains were then placed in Ihe coffins, the lids, upon which the name ol each men wa-H written, were screwed on, and the direful procesion returned to town hy the same route that it pursued in goiog; but the souls ol ten men '.but went out came not back. Friends cams' and took seven of the cnpes. Three wore buried by military in the public cemetry. ihe fragedy was over. It seems heard that ten men should die for one. ' Under ordinary circumstances it could hardly be justified. But severe dis eases demand sevoro remedies. The surety of the people is the supreme law. It over rides all other considerations. Ihe madness of rebellion has become so deep seated that ordinary methods of caie are inadequate. To take li'e for life would be a little intim idation to men seeking the heart's blood of an obnoxious enemy. I hey could well afford to make even exchanges under many circumstances. It is only by striking tbe deepest terror into them causing them to thoroughly respect the lives of loyal men that they can be taught to observe tne obli gation of humanity and law.

The Louistille Journal thus scores certain Abolition papers who, sirce the election have come out against arbitrary arrests. It says: "If ihese papers now spoke the language of hearty repentence, we should not say one unkind word ul them; but they steu to throw up. n Mr. Lincoln the odium of acts wttish they snd their followers forced hint to adopt. He was not inclined to pursue a prescriptive policy toward his poli ical opponents. They made him do so. They tilled the Un 1 with the senseless shout of 'treason'. They affir med that a large party were sympathizers- They clamored lor Basil le. for spy craft and terrorism, lie conceded to their requests, their threats snd tbeir pressure, for a policy of Austrian severity. They thought such a policy would insure success at the fall eleo tiona; but now that defeat has followed, they blame him and him alone. In this they are guilty of the meanest political meanness. They display neither the honesty of Christi ans, nor the magnanimity of gentleman. They treat Mr. Lincoln as one from whom the sceptre has departed, but they are mis taken. Let him respect the Constitu'ion, and the nation will respeot him. The next Congress will be the real war Congress of tbe rebellion. " Eoonomiss Toon Paraa.

The negroes are a clog to snd burden uport' our armies in the South. This is apparent -by correspondence between General LHx and Governor Andrew in relation to sending five hundred families to this State.. Tbe OQCtra- bands come within our lines and, ae the ar , my moves South, more and more will be bad. Tbe universal testimony is that tbey are' worthless to us. A few of them caav be put , to work, but many are old and more children , and a gieat proportion women, who, front S state of comparative innocence, are eorruD" . ted and depraved by communication With tne soldiers, and soon die, or, what is worse, live -to spread disease asd corruption. -They , have done little taken as a whole, Jo what . has been done for them. They show ae dls- : p sition to render themselves useful they have not the capacity or tbe will to be . so; and most of tbem look forward to a re- " turn lo their masters' plan lat ion. With these ignorant and simple people there is greet at- -tachment to tbe place where tbey were rear -ed-great love for those whom they have ser- ' ved, and much more comfort there than tbey can enjoy elsewhere. While the contrabands can do nothing for " the Government, tbey are a big bill of ex- , ponfe. They have occupied the houses while the soldiers have beea without shelter and in some instances have bad new houses built for tbem, wbile white men, defending ' the country, wore left out doors without, tent or blankets. They have drawn rations at tbe expense of the Government, and are ' maintained as paupers, while the Govern- m, nt lias never aided whites, as it has not authority to, and but a few years ago refused " to distribute wood, for which they had nu use at Washington a nor.g the poor of the . . District of Columbia, be. auie there waa ho. Constitutional right to do so. VV remember " lhat in ihe election ol 1644, it was rung all over tbe land lhat Mr. Polk bad no sympa my lor me pour, uerause ue voieu againw . disposal of wood. Now. it does not appear what we shall do with thee people. W e can't turn the whole Southern country into ; a "Poor Farm," and have overseers and send supplies forever. They must be placed some where to earn their living, and be out of the way of the army. What can be done witb ' them? General Dix asks Mjssachusets to take five huudred families till the Government . snail be ready tocoloniza them. The Gov orner says no. There is not a free State in the Union where ninty nine in every burl- daed voters would not protest against the in , . troductlon o (contrabands frdin tbe South and Governor Andrews but expressed lbs uttani- - inous will ol Massachusetui when be said; "No they shall not eoroe." liut it is only till the Government can col- -onizo, we are to!;'. How long will that be? Can any body look forward to the dny when the people Will agree lo find homes for tbe negroes and colonize thorn' abroad? What , ( condition will the country be in, after this war, to perform such work, if they should wish to? There are many things to remeni . ber about this colonising. The United Stales has no power to do it) it has no with ' to do it; it has no money to do it. Then the blacks have no desire to leave, snd will not go; if tbey had, there is no country which will receive them. Whenever colonization takes place, it must be a slow process, , in creasing as tbe blacks succeed where they are settled, si d as they r se here to Mo au - vantages of seperation from the whites. To take the contrabands till the Govern ment is ready to colonize, is to take them for one century at Iest; and we repeat nu , State will do it. If there was iuiruediais' danger of an influx of negroes, we should pass "black laws" like thoe of iho West. But can any body tell us what emancipation amoun:s to if the contrabands are to Slop I -South? We oiten hear it said that never will a person who gains his freedom now bn . . made a slave again ;and President Lincoln ban mode use of such words, If this mount . to anything, it implies one of Iwo ideas; ei ther the South by tome process not yet pointed out, will be in lavor of their freedom, , t and willing to abate the land with them, ' and live witb free blacks, or the whi'e peo plo of the South are to be deprived of self government of the power to make their , own laws. Suppose tbe war to close some 4" day and that, we take it, is a supposable . case then either the Coniederate States yrill . be sndepeiidant or returned to the Union; and by what means are black people' to be' free whichever way is it? if they .are inde- .. pendant, will they recogniza the freedom we . ' have given tbeir slaves? 7 ' 1 Every man will reply oo; then slaver' ,4, will be re established. Very well, V they" roturn to the Union, will tbey not have the right to say what shall be the condition of . their own peopje? Por instance, will not South Carolina bave the light to say that flee negroes vlmll not remain within her . limits ' r t alter a given date; and if they do, that the . shall be sold? So she said when in tbe Union' " ' before; bow do you propose to prevent it ;- hereafter? Now every sane man must see that either thin revolution is to sweep away ' ,,' all State rights, or there is to be no freedom' ' for blacks in the South after the war, if a . ,. thousand times tbey should be freed during ths war. :- Here is the condition of the contiabanda: i They can't get out of the South because the . -Government can not send them abroad, and' ' bo free State will take them; and they caB'f ; " remain in the South without returning to slavery, unless this revolution is so complete ' as todistroy the States when We all, blacks ; and whites together, ft., all become th . slaves of a mititaay despotism.' This is all' we can see in tbe future.-' The truth l, the- - treedoin. of the blacks can not be attained in , 4 war witaout the destruction of whites. . l( it is ever gnined as it- eertsinly will be "!
