A JOURNAL OP COnnGRCB LIBBL.
Panning the natural course of radicalism, the
editors ofscreral of the Abolitionist sheetsnavc
recently been seized with a strong desire, for the
Introduction of amalgamation into the social and
domestic life of their own and other radical fami
lies, Those of them who are not already unfortu
nately bound by law to white wives seem to be
earnestly desirous of securinghaek companions on
the voyage ol life.—N. Y. Journal of Commerce.
If this assertion had appeared in the N. Y.
Herald one would know bow to treat
it The JXrredd is the buffoon of the press.
In "Old times Icings Cent professional foot*,
whose duty It was to say ladlcrons things for
the amnsement of tbc court The “king’s
fool” was no fool, but a low commedian. a
manufacturer of pons and pasquinades and
smart silly sayings. As the people in this
free country constitute the king, or sover
eignty, the K. Y. Herald ow-plreg to he their
fool, and succeeds admirably. It deals in
lampoon, pasquinade, ridicule, invective and
falsehood. - It never tells the truth, except
with afhmdulent intent. Its grand object
is to amuse, to startle, to deceive, to mystify,
to keep men's minds in a muddle, to admin
ister to theirbaserappclilcfi and passions; to
make morality, religion, truth, principle
look as absurd and ridiculous os possible.
And so notorious has itsxcal character'and
purpose become that while many read it and
laugh, no intelligent person places the slight
est reliance on its statements, and unless its
assertions of fact arc corroborated they are
never believed, except by very ignorant and
very unsophisticated people. The Journal of
Commerce has sought to establish a different
reputation; •It makes professions of respect
ability, and wishes the. reading public to re
pose faith in its statements. But what can
have infinccditradltor to gravely put forth
the libel which we Lave quoted ? Was it the
paltry purpose to raise a laugh at the expense
of his political opponents? A down in a
circus ring, may get off smutty Jokes, may
relate monstrous, lies without Injuring his
reputation. But a lecturer or orator proles 8-
ingto be respectable, and addressing an audi
ence of respectable people, cannot indulge in
the down's'role without forfeiting the res
pect of hls hearers, felling binder their con
tempt, and perhape Being hissed off the stage.
The Journal of Comtneree has insulted its
readers by making tbe assertion it does.
They .do, not what it all edges to be
true. It kuoma wbat it asserts to be fal*e. Jt
cannot give Ihc names of the 44 several Abo
“ lition sheets tnat have recently been seized
“witha strong<Jeaire for tbc introduction
“ol amalgamation into the -social and do
-44 mestic life of their oim. and other radical
44 families.” Wc challenge it to name one
such 44 Abolition sheet.”
The assertion is pure invention; it Is a
dbty and contemptible slander, known to
be suchuby the vender. There are several
kinds ol lies, such as probable, specious,
clumsy, transparent, absurd and silly lies.
This one perpetrated by the Journal of Com •
f ncrctf is an absurd, and also a silly and trans
parent lie. It is one of the wretched effects
of slavery. The Journal of Commerce has
long been a lackey o£thc slave power, and
it utters this base falsehood in the interests
of its masters. Falsehood as well as treach
ery, theft, brutality and treason, is an attri
bute of slavery.
But since it is conceded on all hands that
the monster has received a mortal wound,
and that It Is -dying, why does the Joumil of
Commerce continue to worship at its shrine ?
Men do not generally worship a setting sun.
But perhaps we ought to make allowance
for the force of habit. It is difficult to
break loose from habits of twenty years'
duration. Bnt it is of no use to -bum sacri
fices on the altar of slavery any more. Gen
tlemen donghlaces, your king is gylng; he Is
I>ast cure. Pray, cease to utter.'slanders and
libels on the friends of Freedom; they have
won ihc battle; they are'xhasters of the situ
ation; the ibtnre is theirs. Amalgamation
is an attribute of slavery; the white and ne
gro races never fuse or mlseegenate except
in the relation of master and slave. Give
■ the black race freedom and. amalgamation
instantly ceases. The black man then jeal
ously watches over and pres erveslhe chastity
of the females orhls race from the amorous
advances of the white males. The practice
is broken up completely' Bnt in a state of
bondage the male negro la powerless, ’and
the female negro wholly under the dominion i
and subject to the brutal lusts of her owner or
his son. ‘Where there is one instance of mis
cegenation in a. state of freedom, there are
ten thousand in a state of slavery. All this
the Journal of Commerce well knows, bnt It
tried to ape the old Satanic in perpetrating a
libel on its political opponents. r-Betterlcave
all that disreputable business with the JEfcr-.
old, unless it is anxious to throw away what
reputation for respectability It
earned.
BEBELLION KERTrCKimSE.
It Is evident that the rebels are Inaugurat
ing the campaign by sundry demonstrations
in and upon Kentucky. .Forrest's operations
in the west of that. State, arc only pari of a
plan, which we shall probably see soon filled
out by corresponding-movements -elsewhere.
It is announccd that Buckner is moving into
the State on the East, through Pound Gap;
at the some thue'that Longstreet’s force,,
which he has been mounting for some time,
is quite invisible—its whereabouts and prob
able destination being unknown. Very like
ly a part of it may be destined for Kentucky.
The object may he two-fold. In the first
place, the rebel army wants supplies. A suc
cessful stay in Kentucky, even for a short
time, would help them on that score; even a
raid in force might holdout good prospects
of advantage, only so it could get success
fully away.
But another object, much more important,
is, without doubt, intended. Whether that
is to get possession of the State and repos
sess themselves of Tennessee, and so to
close, up the Mississippi again, as we have
bccn.wamed; or whether some grand object
in the East is on foot, for which these. Ken
tuckymovements are only a sort of blind, is
uncertain to outsiders, and can onlybelecrn
ed by awaiting the development. Our mili
tary leaders are doubtless pretty well inform
ed in the premises, and are prepared in either
quarter. If the rebels wish to reconquer
Kentucky, they will have a good
fight for it We are" Sony" for the
true Union people in that State, who must
suffer again the ravages of war. But there is
a section there, of those who olalm to be
Union people, whose doings and utterances
have doubtless done much to bring about'
this state of things. The rebcls.knoir them
selves to be tolerably safe among those who
worship slavery ; and always feel perfectly
free to come among them, either for stay or
contributions. ' Tbe present theatre of For
rest’s operations west of the Tennessee Hirer
is as dense* region of slavoholding darkness
as exists is or out of South Carolina. Of'
course be can rely upon them as rebels. Hla
troops arc largely raised on thegronnd. The
Padncah fight was got up by Paducah men.
Those Union men, therefore, who cling to
slavery need not be surprised if they are re
garded., by the rebels as their real friends
after aIL The rebels claim the slaveholding
pari of them; and when a man is compound
ed of slaveholder and Union man, and the
rebels get the slaveholder, it is easy to see
what becomes of tho Union part of Mm.-* He
is like the Bishop who was a rowdy—tbe
Bishop belonging!© the Lord, and the rowdy
to the Prince of Darkness; when Baton took
the rowdy tbe Bishop had to go, too; Our
sorrow for such zqcn is that their delusion
exists. But while it exists, we know of no
sure remedy but such as itself invites. While
the itching is. so intense Old Ahenietby's
cure is inevitable—there must be “scratch
ing.” Our sincere hope is that the present
scratch will suffice, and that Kentucky will
he hereafter truly loyal. That tbe rebels will
get the worst of It in theirattempts there we
feel sure; hut they are bound to get the
worst of It at any rate, and may as well get
It, if they will, hi Kentucky os anywhere.

up the Bed among other things,
this:

Here is a nut for our Copperhead cptem
poraries to crack. They are talking a good
deal of late, abont miscegenation, and charg
ing that the Republicans advocate and prac
tice it. How happens it that slaves are'found
In Western Louisiana so nearly white that
they can only be distinguished from the pure
whites by branding the word “slave” on their
foreheads? Who arc themlsccgcns in
case? Those Octoroons are the oflspring of
‘•democrats.'’ Mnlattoes, Quadroons and
Octoroons, exist not only by thousands, but
by hundreds oi thousands, all over the “dem
ocratic” Southern States. They are a South
xrn “democratic” institution, as much so as
slavery; amalgamation between the demo
crats and their negress “property” is a uni
versal practice in that country. Whoever
will read Chancellor Harvey's Vindication of
Slavery, will find that be admits the univers
ality of “miscegenation'.' between
young men and the colored women of the slave
States. A sister of President Madison once
observed tbatMfVe Southern wives are but
mistresses of seraglios:'' - _
There is only way to put a
stop to amalgamation, and to prevent the
filthy practices of miscegenation from bleach
ing ont the African race in the Southern
States, and that is, by giving freedom to tbe
slaves, and releasing the colored females
from the dominion of their democratic mas
ters, and placing them under the care and
protection of their natural guardians, the
male blacks! This is tbc care for the evil,
.proposed by the Republicans, and there is bo
other that will prove effectual. Is is not
logical* to conclude that those who oppose
the only practicable mode of stopping whole
sale miscegenation are In favor of- the prac
tice?.
Authorship of the President’* Procla
mation. A
A statement recently appeared in a news
paper in relation to Mr. Lincoln's messages
and speeches. Among other things it was
stated in the article that Mr. Chase wrote the
concluding paragraph in the Emancipation
Proclamation. Willed Spirit of Ux Tones
intimated that Mr. Seward, wrote the Gettys
burg speech of the President. The corres
pondent of the New Tork iW says the state
ments have attracted tho attention of Mr.
Lincoln, and he hears that gentleman pro*
nounces them entirely erroneous. Every
public document of his, since he became
President, but one, he asserts, is his own
composition. That exception is the address
to the English clergymen. Mr. Seward wrote
it The Gettysburg speech was entirely Mr.
Lincoln's composition.
Tbe disposition in certain quarters t.o write
Mr. Lincoln down os a nobody, will hardly
succeed among the people. -

A monument to Bishop Onderdonk,
According to the Cltrittian Time*, of New
York city, an elegant monument is to be
erected in Trinity Church to' the memory of
the late Bishop Onderdonk It Is to be of
Caen stone, and to consist of a redining
. effigy, the Head wearing a mltro, a crosier
lying by the side, angels at the head and a
conchant lion at the feet. Under this lion is
a serpent, whose head is" raised, while the
barbed tongue is thrust out towards the
Bishop. This last device, emblematical of
slander, refers to the charges against the
Bishop which led to his deposition, and ac
cording to the Observer., is hardly complimen
tary to his Episcopal peers by whom he was
•convicted, and the respectable witnesses who
testified In the once famous Onderdonk case.

THE CONDITION OF THE NEGROES,
The Present Stain* «»r Preediaen
In tlie mululjpl Talley.
The 'Wax versus the Treaimy Department.
[Special Correspondence of the Chicago Tribune.
Vicksbubq, March 26,1861.
WHAT SHALL WE DO WITH THE HEQBO ?
The country has been agitated ever since
the rebellion broke out, about the find dis
position of the negro. Like most other
questions of policy which look formidable in
the distance, and explain themselves In good
lime, this which had puzzled statesmen, has
been happily solved by the stern teacher—war.
When General Butler laid down the true
law ol our country, that in this war the negro
was “ contraband,” he happily solved the
problem. The status of the negro was de
termined, all the rest was merely a question
of municipal government. Drifting with the
tide of moral sentiment and expediency, we
first employed the black man to dig, to drive,
to work, to - serve—then to bear arms, and
build and hew in our military service.. Thus
far, for the able-bodied negro we bad found a
place and a purpose; a right, a responsibil
ity—saving, perhaps, the single one of ex
change as a prisoner of war. The question,
however, was not exhausted. The females,
the infirm,'the young, the aged, require our
attention. *
THE LABOR PROBLEM.
It was natural that at a time like this when
labor was so scarce, when the enemyhad
maintained such an advantageover ns by his
organized slave labor,the negroes should have
been expected to labor on the aideof freedom,'
onlhesidtfofthelrdellverers! Bythelrvery
existence they were eminently fitted to sup
ply the unprecedented gap in the labor of the
world. Common sense noless than national
economy pointed them to thClr accustomed
task of raising cotton while they, were learn
ing the first lessons of freedom.
in the Mississippi Yalloywbere the bnllcof
the population were of this class, the experi
ment was tried last year; although not fa
vored ot elements or enemies the result was
successful. The fitness and the improvement
ofthe negro in his new condition was der
Tbe scheme though devised
amid the drawbacks and reverses of war and
reverses by Adjuant General Thomas, was on
the whole an exverunentwn cruii*. On the
first of January, in conformity with the law
psfesed by Congress for the confiscation of
property beloning to rebels, the task was
transferred from the War to the Treasury De
partment, including the leasing and cultiva
tion of abandoned estates. This lattermost
have been an oversight as the colonization of
the insurgent districts with free labor is In
no, sense a revenue measure, hut would have
more properly belonged to tbe War or Into*
riorDepartment/ or still better to an Agri
cultural or Bureau for Frecdmen's Affairs.
THE TREASURY “REGULATIONS.”
In etrict fact the measure has Important
f o]illcal as well as philanthropic bearings,
n changing the character of the labor of hall
the country we are Inevitably tearing down
a social strnctnre and replacing it with a bet
ter; we are uprooting baneful and deep seat
ed political prejudices and in their stead sow
ing seeds of enlightened and healthful policy.
Ihc reformation in many of the reclaimed
districts was hopeful, and astonishing.. The
demonstration by Gen. Banks, in Louisiana,
by free labor, killed -by its contagion more
enemies than his bayonets. Besides working
the black advantageously to himself, his em
ployer and the Government, he ordained
regulations which dissipated the prejudices
010 generation. His scheme is now in suc
cessful operation over the greater portion of
Louisiana.
Not so, however, the system introduced
by. the agent of Mr. Chose farther up
.tberiver. Mr. Mellen.apparentlyanxionsto
signalize his entrance by a new code, at one
"blow demolished all the fabric raised with so
much pains by his predecessor. Instead '6f
the five hundred plantations which bad been
applied ior under the old system, there were
not at a late day forty plantations bring
worked by lessees under the Government.
Worse', the condition of the negroes at large
haa been made worse,-and there is an evident
necessity for continuing the military super
vision. The revenue to- the Government is
decreased, and a fundamental provision of
the constilntionviolatcd.
THE SPECIAL AGENTS AND THE, COTTON THADE.
The principal effect of the law which com
mltted this Important charge to the Treasury
haa been to. increase, tbe huge number of
officials and favorites, who are now prating
cn the pnhlic purse, with unquestionable de
signs upon the coming elections.
We venture to assert, and think-.we con
prove, that the present “ permit. system” of
trade in this volley is the most gigantic pub
lic plundering that this much plucked nation
has ever suffered. This is partly by the reiy
loose and inadequate provision for the pun
ishment of fraud; and also by a most unwise
• clause In the regulations by which tbe in?
• formant who shall libel the property of the
en&iy secures ball the proceeds of its sale
, after filing proper bonds. The legitimate
consequence is seen In the fact that the prin
cipal, indeed, almost the only libellers, arq,
the Treasury agents themselves, who, arc
.employing sub-agents in dozchs to seize all
tbe cotton in the country. - Let no honest
tax-payer suppose that the exchequer receives
• half tbe value of all confiscated cotton. By
a process known only to the initialed, the
Government is cheated of nineteen-twen
tieths, and it is only through the falling ont
of these peculators that any gets into the
Treasury. At this time there Id a violent
quarrel between the Vlcksbmgand Natchez
agents for the spoils of office.
it Is well understood that the two func
tions commonly supposed to be performed
by - these agents—prevention of contraband
smuggling and collection of revenue—are
not by any means effected. Contrariwise,
smuggling through the enstom house Is in
finitely more common than through thelines,
as of old. It is doubtful if the revenue
raised officials, after paying cost of
collection, on all the trade between Cairo and
New Orleans, exceeds the amount of one
cent per pound "on all cotton and tobacco
passing thmigh those points. Farther, tbe
bpeciol Agent, Mr. Melien, has Imposed a tax
of two cents per pound on all cotton raised
by free labor, without the least shadow of au
thority.
THE MISSION OP OEM. THOMAS.
The authority vested in Gen. Thomas by
the Secretary of War was sufficient for tho
purposes of the enlistment ol negroes and
the system of labor. The authority of Sec r
reian Chase under Congress became co-ordi
nate, The duties and .prjyiligea of each of
these respective agents are nowhere clearly
defined. Co-operation is necessary. ' The
Treasury cannot employ laborers without
protection from tho army, and unless em
ployed they become a sourco of ovil and ex
pense to tbe Government had tbe army. Thq
government of negroes and citizens is*lor the
time martial. Mr.- Mellcn’s interference
with tbe affair thus far has been ruinous to
all concerned, the negro and the colonists of
tbe country. Atjllus moment there are eight
hundred animals starving to death in Vicks
burg lawfully in the custody of the Treasury
officials who have no provision: for such ser
vice. •
We are glad to observe that tbe President
las entrusted Gen. Thomas with ample
forces for the most judicious division and co
operation in this task, so that the military'
arm shall be ready to protect tbclr interests.
The political issues which are dividing the
attention of people” at the North are.T fear,
Impertinently thrust into matters of a philan
thropic and military character. Gen. Thomas
hud just succeeded in*selcctlng responsible
officers who were subject to summary trial
and dismissal, which It is attempted to re
place by political partisans' of obscure ante
cedents.
A corps of colored troops of the second
class bad been raised under the orders of the
Secretary of War for the government of re
claimed territory. AU that was needed be
yond this was a supervision of officers from
a Freedman's Bureau, to sec that obligations
between laborer and employer are faithfully
carried out.
NXGEOES AT WOUK-
It is cheering to know tint though the
lessees of plantations have been discouraged
from the enterprises by the meddling regula
tions and tbe hostilities of the enemy, the
negroes.-themselves,:. have shown to a re
markable degree a manly sense of their posi;
lion. At. this time there are five 'thousand,
of all ages, on Jeff Davis* plantation, below
Vicksburg. At Island No. 10, fire hundred,
at President's Island, two. thousand, and at
Young's Point two thousand more.
On account of the discouragement of the
Plantations by withdrawing the colored for
ces raised expressly for them protection, their
prospects are for the moment gloomy. At
Sblpworlh’s Landing, the levees have been
cut and many ol the negroes have been cap
tured and shot and their bouses burned. At
Lake Providence and Goodrich's Tending the
guerillas are continually hovering about, to
the great detriment of labor. At Waterprool
and vidalia many of them have been given
up oh account of want of protection. But
few of them on the east side are being culti
vated.
The arrival of Gen. Thomas and the opera
tions now on foot on Red River qnd its trib
utaries,-will afford ad equal e p rotce ti on to the
west; side. The Ouachita and Tensas Trill he
explored. ThefortSAnd garrisons. will be
re-established, and the greatest encourage
ment given to Ireed-labor enterprise. All
who have an interest in the welfare of the
negro cannot but desire to see b!tn placed In
a sphere where he will be enabled to raise
himself to a higher civilization by honest la-.
bor and dne regard for social and political
order.
The following circular letter on the subject
has been drawn up by Col; Eaton, superin
tendcnfbf Freedmen-at Vicksburg, in answer
to inquiries, and explains the designs* of the
Government in the matter,-and the peculiar
difficulties in the way:

many Inquiries in record to tho origin and object
of the r orcanizatlon of the' 9th and 7th Louisiana
regiments of A D., than by making the following
had. In spite of all trials to
-'the contrary, imposed itself upon the commanders
of onradvandng armies, and shown the necessity
of a distinct dags of officers.- , , .. v ;
Alike the simple principle of subdivision of
labor itbe pecnl ar duties of pnpenntendentß, so
unlike all other army duties: the vast,amottnt of
work required of them, enforced the necessity.
The tinny felt and acknowledged it, so of. every
one who looked at the subject.
There wo* difficulty In getting officers and men
detailed, they bad duties arduous and sufficient In
in their old organizations. Beside, guards bad
been found necessary in many instances, first of.
white soldiers, afterwards of black; from the force-,
demanded in the field. But their officers might
have no fitness ior the work of supertision—the
able bodied Ireedmen mostly west .into the . regi
ments for active service. Certain malehlackawero
found necessary to build rabn>m provide wood and
perform the various labors required - in the cire.of
the women ‘and children,-and those entirely
dependent. These, organized, could, at -the same
time, do the guard duty reqajrcdfor *tiM car j and,
IndusUy of the people, andreUeye so' many able-’
bodied men for retire service. Officered by tin
men fit for superintendents, they constituted tho
organization crrc'Jy for the :uperrlsloa
atoproxccncn of tixe freed pooplo and their indns-
General Grant, who tad moat patiently attended
to all the perplexing peculiarities of the aabject,
so unique for the consideration of a commander lit
the field, saw this fitness and recommended the
organization ; Adjutant General Thomas was
r.t bard, rested with rmple an hority by Secretary
Stanton, and ordered the organization of the 9th,
in September last. This was "filled at once, except"
rrttre £ pedal obstacles were thrown In the wayr—
the fitness beratne more apparent—the necessity
of another regiment manifest, and the 7thwasor
* Great care rras exercised in tbo selection of the
officers, that they should he of tho strictest integ
rity ana altogether of the right spirit, as well as
men of ability and attainments adapted. to the
work in hand; at once military, business, and hu
mane in a peculiar degree. As far as possible they
were found among those whose fitness bad been
tested by ‘he labors of theprerions months or year.
The field and staff officers were those considered
qualified for the more eeneral dat es—ln each com--
jany care was taken terhare one officer or more;
adapted for the business of Baoervlflion, cither
local or general, crone or more with mfiltanr. qual-.
Iflentions to bring the companies np to the highest
standard of efficiency. , . . ..
Hade np, as the regiments were, thronghont the
Department, from Island 10 to Natchez, where this
special dmy was required, the applications for of
ces wae very numerous—afford rag ■ an opportnalty
far the most choice selection. So great was the
care to secure the right menrlhat some .of tho
places were left unfilled for months.
The organization of the regiments might hare
been considered sufficiently laborious for those en
gaged In It, hot the necessities of the people In the
approaching winter were before them, and though'
looking at tho completion of the organization as
one of the greatest-means of expediting the com
fort of the people, they hated not a Jot or titrle ihe
untold labors of eeneral and local' supervision,
hunting np andpresslng every means of industry— -
providing food. shelter and clothing directly from
the sources at their command, and inviting volun
tary laborers end charity to como to their aid; pat
ting special stress upon the importance of the just
payment, by all parties, both Government and pri
vate, of all sums due the freodmen for their labor,
alike as a means of relief for present Buffering and
■of the elevation of the race.
What difficulties they hare encountered, or, bow
peculiar, none can know eo .well os they, and they
bate considered silence a part of thair patriotic;
sacrifice. This oneulement-01. discouragement,
one of the most trying to homan enterprise and
patience. Is manifest however, whenever we turn
onr observation on their most exhausting efforts
and sacrifices—so vast and remote, so embarrassed
by the conditions of war—were’lho cqdstoba se
cured for the freed people,' that theyconld at no
step attain more than the slightest earnest of a re
alization. .
Pressing the return efthe people to the planta
tions, where their Industry, health and general im
provement would be beet promoted; urging that
a pass or contract In the hands of a black man,
should be as sacred and as sure a protection to him
setothewbte man; that his industry should be
as Justly paid, that. schools ahonld be provided,
that the marital and all civil relations should bo
respected and medicines and medical
attendance. ahonld be provided tor all sick,
and asylum plantations for all entirely de
pendent, and thus the camps broken np: although
they could mark progress In these and other re
spects—many even in tills unfavorable season hav
ing returned to plantations, many former masters
having, m accordance with General Grant’s order,
become in good faith employers; cabins by hun
dreds having been erected fur those still in camp;
the'young having been taught by thousands; in
dustry and its payment, ana health and comfort
having increased, the rate of deaths rapidly dimin
ished, the violations of personal, social, and civil
relation* lessened in number—still they have been
compelled to see idleness—labor, when performed,
unpaid—sickness without adequate provision fur
relief—snflcrlng and Ignorance anremoved.
The loyal, benevolent public, have made a noble
response—clothing enough, It is thought, is now
en route to supply immediate necessities.
Volunteer laborers hare come lorwardlnlargi
numbers, encouraged by the order issued by Adju
tant General Thomas, furnishing them quarters
and the soldier’s ration.
Wsny facclinl notions have been urged for our
adoplcn, alike impracticable, injurious to llio
lu. drain, and, disadvantageous to the Govern
nt.
Every power has teen exerted to Ibe utmost, to
attempt Just what was possible, practical, common'
tense, andmothlng more.
As no man can determine in detail his own des
tiny, so, it has been Jelt, no one can mark out tbe
exact steps In the progress of a race; nor has it
been forgotten bow any mislop might damage tbe
gtnfenl confidence in the policy of the Government,
‘or delay the restoration of 1U legitimate authority
over rebellions districts. '
There is ro little cratificalion In reflecting that
this supervision In the year or more of perplexity
and darkness that has passed, has never adopted- - *
principle which has proved impractical or worked
Injury to the treedmen of the Government—but
has steadily held In view the general results, so-,
curing the interests of Government by battering
the condition of tbe freedmen, and throwing them
weight alikeos soldiers end laborers Into the scale
of loyalty; towards which, events, with all their
eddies and counter-currents hive been moviag.
No personal cuds have been sought; there has
been no embarrassment from a proems tlan
scheme; every principle adoptedhas been patiently
tried by the test of facts.
As this organization-ibr the supervision and
protection of freedmen and their industry, has ad
vanced toward completion, and assumed the actual
discharge of its duties, increasing evidence has
been furnished of Its adaptation to tbe necessities
to be met.
The general office'was removed flVim Memphis to
Vicksburg, to he nearer the centre of the greatest
demand upon It; a district office for West Tennes
see was established at Memphis, for Artrenasn. at
Helena, for Natchez at that plice, and local super
intendents assigned wherever demanded. A com
pete subdivision ol labor is rapidly working itself
out. Tbe surgeon of the 9th naturally hepamo
medical director of freedmen, and has already
token a careful survey of their medical necessities,
and for tbe time has accomplished much in supply
ing them. The Quartermaster, by being made
Acting Assistant Q. M. of Freedmen, naturally
leeks after all the pioperty required In their super
virion; Ibe Chaplain, after.schools,' education,
etc.; each assisted, as far as required, by
other officers; each, too, adopting a system
cf reports according to specified forms,
which bring the whole field and sj! the people no-'
dor view atthe General office, for correction of mis
takes or abuses, or. for the constant improvements
In general planer details. o
To withdraw this organization?or to declare that
it is not needed, womd *be to say . that thirty
thousand people require no governing' or protect
ion in the midst of the social upheavals or intes
tine war. We should pronounce the rnan mmi,
wLo would advocate such an idea as possible, in a
time of profound peace. Aow much more now ?
The organization, ir.«s Is manifetit, adapted by
simple Instinmcntatities, to do for the freed' peo
ple the simple things which the circumstances and
the times render necessary, viz; To supervise the
provision of their food, shelters and labor, as (hr ns
they must depend temporarily upon tbe Govern
ment ; their supply of medicine and medical atten
dance; their educational necessities: to'prompt
their industry, to protect them from
abuse, enforce the inviolability of all agreements
wlih them.
irtLis system was adopted In all the mllitarxDo
paitments where the gntbciing' of thcae people
renders ecptrvision necessary: dad n Head ap
pointed to open a Bureau in the War office, under
the immediate direction of the Secretary of War. I
bare no donbt its wisdom would be indicated to
present scdfiitmo£eneratlonp.
These people, like whites In and around the
army, most be under martial law. The WarDe
-paitmcnr, under these circumstances, alone can
administerand execute justice. The Tnauurvcan
only provide refutations fer the conduct of “men
with reference to money transactions; the War
Department can govern them as far as repaired
with reference to all the duties of citizens. or has
baud or cMJd; that I?, punish If these relations are
violated. and enforce any regulations of pecuniary
transactions provided by the Treasury. ■ Tha‘ bill
providing an 'Emancipation Bureau In the War
Office, seems tome, with what facts I bare before
me.lo meet , the necessity; I mean in general. I
tare not yet seen its details.
Not only la the necessary governing power with
ire army; but It has a complete system of sup
plying food,-medicines, etc., and holds these
kurpuea safe at its great depots. These poonlecan
only be safe as rcrccred so by tbe army, and con
sequently wilt need their supplies near the same
denote.
This organization, military In Its character. Is
■exactly adapted to the army methods of business
of receiving and distributing supplies. 'Any organ*
iraticn other than military would necessarily bo at
great expense to institute a new system of pur
chasing. transporting, storing'and 'Hishnnln?. and
then, independent of the army, its officers at any
temporary post, might wake op some morning and
tied themselves and their stores left by the troops,
compo led, possibly, to secret movement, unpro
tected frem the hovering guerillas.
The true system; It seems to me,' is this ooe, in
which the war Department provides for the protec
' ticn and supervision of the Irecdmon, and the Trea
sciy for the leasing of abandoned plantations, the
collection of revenue, ae tax or otherwise, the sale
of goods and the disbursing of funds.

before the first of May, and decisive results
can hot he looked for before the first of July.
lUchmond will not be taken by rapid march

have to be invcstedyxnd hesclged for weeks,
perhaps for months. The 'Union party has
nothjng to lose by putting off the Inaugura

August; bnt there Is danger of its losing a
great deal by diverting public attention from

swallowed up—that of suppressing the rebel
