Letter fret Occasional." We take from the Philadelphia Prêts following :—Whenever I hear an intelligent man trying to arouse and exaggerate the pre judice against the colored aa in the face of th î pwnotioal experience ojrthe war, it is no difficult"thing to decide against the emoerity of hie motives. A muoh higher estimate must be placed upon the judgment of one who is s ; mply ignorant and bigoted, and who exclaims against the negro in the spirit of party 'hatred. The first shows that he is par tial and unjust; and the second »strength ened in his intolerance by ths example of his leaders. The bad men who fomented and forced th s war knew only too well that there wesa mighty element in the South, whioh (in the event of the hostility so recklessly braved or «W so eagerly desired by the Se ■eesvon politicians), mu t either be the foes or the f ionds of the Government. Mad the ntarrh oVb™ hern able to use their human chat against the Government, the rebellion would have prevailed in the first year of Mr. Lincoln'sfidministration. Who does not re member how frequently it was said by these men. that their slave.-, would fight and die for their masters? hew they despised the Yan kees? and how they hated the men who were trying to ameliorate a condition, Which, as flippantly alleged, was only calculated to in crease the*r sufferings? And who can forget the predictions that one of tb,e objects of the friends of the Government was to excite the slaves to insurrection, and to set them upon their masters and mistresses? And, also, that every attempt to give them freedom would fail before the contemptuous refusal of the slaves themselves of this barren boon, ond the certain subsequent destitution of their enfranchised race? Not one of these prog nostications or threats has been vindicated by the events. In the fir.it week of the war the traitors were agonized between doubts and fears of the slav es. the uu In fact, they made their own chattels (too often their own children) their remorseless enemies, by constantly sus pecting and watching them. They have feared to put muskets into their hands, lest these might be turned against themselves.-— iNo slave has been found who is ready to die for hra owper. Instead of hating and betray ing the Union soldiers, they have helped them in battle, and in defeat have concealed them from pursuit and punishment. There has not been a single "servile insurrection."— The slaves have not only accepted their free doçi, but have begged for it with piteous .prayers, and have fled in droves from the triarchal estates of their lordly tho army of the Union they have fought-like heroes. In the walks of labor they have worked like honest, and conscientious, and self-respecting pa owners. In They have not gone North to arouse prejudice, and wheroverthey have located in the South, when protected by the old flag, they have shown themselves to be possessed of many practical qualities. Is it nut. strange that, with all these strong proofs before them, intelligent men still toil to feed tho prcjudic of the ignorant, and to grope in the ashes of old party fires for spark with which to re-kindle deadly ani mosities? The Southern negroes are the friends of the Union, and the devoted ad mirers of the Union troops. Who would wish to change this feeling? Who is ready to fuse the help of the grateful slave who offers to sa\o tho life of a white soldier, oither by takn.g his place in the ranks, by attending to him in battle, by nursing him «ick wounded, or by sheltering him from the blcod-hi.unds of slavery, who hunt him when he escapes from pentilential prions, or flies fr*m unutterable cruelties? And yet it is such results that tho bitterness of party lead ers and the bigotry of party followers would prwuusc. There is in this question of the fc utheru negro and Ins lanhiulne«» to the Union cause, and h;s idolatrous devotion to the Union huMters, a retributive philosophy, which may some duy, and that very shortly, react with fearful eflect upon Copperhead pol.t c ans. If the^e politicians desire to Ucipatc i'iuir uo.iu, lot them consult the capcd officers who, on- their dangerous jour? ncy from Richmond to the Union linos, found their paJtway b une re 01 6 ■ sin .othetl by the kindness of the slaves, a .d brightened by their smiles. OCCASIONAL. The Extinction of Slavery Neces* •ary. I have not made this recapitulation of the originating and the consequences flowing from the bloody rebellion that «hake« our country, to imbitter animosities on either * side. My effort is to expose to view that root ed evil which must be extracted if we would re lieve the nation from its convulsions. Slavery, as a great element of society, makes slaves of all associated with it by the passions it in flames ; the masters by the ambition it in spires, the masses with which it mingles by the deadly contagion it spreads in a thousand forms. It is marked in the Déclaration of Independence as the most virulent poison in stilled by the King to enfeeble for subjuga tion the people on whom he made war, and it has proved the most potent ingredient that could be employed for the dissolution of the fabric of free government which withstood the King's attempt. If tho virus he.infused, which was strong enough amid the enthusi asm for new-born freedom to stifle the voice ■af the Declaration of Independence denounc ing slavery, and has kept the free govern ment—the hard earned prize of the revolu tionary war—in tremor over wince, iw it now, when it has been poured ont with the nation's blood in the fratricidal war it forced on the country, again to be admitted into the sys tem ? What patriotic parly will sanction such a suggestion ? The people of the «lave States will repudiate slavery when the duress of the rebellion is removed. Missouri and Western Virginia have already formally renounced it, and the recent votes of Delaware and dear Maryland jfcanifest their purpose to nounce it at once. In Kentucky, Tennessee, and Arkansas, the indication« are also fav CMM I our own n • •table. The procl»Si»tfen of tie President j bf deprive the enemy of this greatest^iemont of power, this sinew. of war started at aU pointa, has announced the extinction of slave- j ry as essential to the suoooss of the measures ho has been oumpolled to adopt as sonquer a peace for the Uuym. The armies of tho Re publie are on the march to aocotnpiiah the aims which have been submitted without re serve to the decision of public opinion, and they have the srappbta of the people's suffrage. What, then, is the duty of all who are eensi sible that the war is an inevitable evil, from which there is no safe or -honorable deliver ance but by supporting with united strength and counsels the C|hiof Magistrate, to whose conduct the iesqe-U committed, and in whose avowed designs the nation has voted its con fidence f Are there any who would rescind the votes of the Border States and re-establish slavery therein ? Are there aqy who would annul the proclamation, to reinvigorate * ne institution so skillfully plied to instigate the war, and so essential to provide the for its prosecution ? Tho Democratic party of the North was se duced to countenance die measures of the Southern oligarchs preparatory to the war against the U nion, under the idea that they were designed as mere menace, and were really conservative. The event has shown that the whole policy of the dominant (dass in the South has been war for absolute dominion in the Slave States—war to extend the des potic system m which it built at home and abroad. Is this the conservatism to which Democracy anywhere should lend it self? Bulwer, though a' Tory, has this ap horism in one of his late papers; "A'true conservative policy for a nation is the policy of progress;" and he gives his conservative friends the admonition that ''resistance to progress is destructive to conservatism."-— Thé Democracy was in its better day a pro gressive party, Would it put be pu advance backward to restore the slave institution to the position it bps lost in' being used during the greater part of a century, covertly at first, bpt now in open rebellion, to destroy the free Government by which it had been tolerated only in the hope it would bave been gradual ly thrown off under the influence of public sentiment ? When the masters of millions of slaves have boldly proclaimed slavery the best basis of government, and founded on it tho military despotism thi y have set up within the juris diction of the United States, with the avowed purpose of superseding its authority, what friend of tho Union, what friend of free gov ernment, can hesitate to strike down that sys tem which endangers both ? The plea that slavery is a local institution, not to be dealt with by Federal authority, was universally admitted to be true till that institution engendered a rebellion which, by an ad mission equally universal, seriously imper ils the existencs ef the National Govern ment. ment if, in virtue of the right of self-defence, common alike to Governments and individu als, under such circumstances it- could not destroy its enemies, ft is absurd to consider the war now raging as one meant to draw a line between coter minous nationalities, ft is a war in the bosom of one nationality, of a people of the same race and language, on an arena bound ed by the lakes, the ocean, the Gulf, and the great tributary streams that unite and insu late and mark it as the domain of one great Government. It is a war for principal and for dominion. If the dynasty founded on the slave system triumps, it will give law to the continent. If it fails, the tendency of the age becomes inverted, there is an end of slavery among civilized tions. What a humiliating contrast is pre sented fur the new world in the attempt of Jefferson Davis and his coadjutor rebels striving to fetter their poorer and more igno rant lellow-oitizens in the chain* of their lour millions of negro-slaves, while the Autocrat of the Bussian proclaims the freedom ot forty millions of serfs, delivering them from the yoke of a haughty nobility and his own right of seigniory, and established them as free holders I—from Postmaster General Blair'* addrene to the Maryland Legislature. at it, means It could not be called a Govern fail it must, unless Ufl Jamxs B. Clay and his Slaves. —The late James B. Clay, like most wealthy slavehold ers, was very fond of boasting of the attach ment and devotion of his bondmen to him self. Not only were his slaves well fed and well housed, but they were far happier than free people, and knew and appreciated the inestimable advantages of their position.— They did not want freedom, and wouldn't take it on any terms. All they asked was to live on the old plantation, and to end their days under the easy yoke of "Massa" Clay. Once upon a timè —some two or three years ago—-Mr. Clay had a Quaker friend from the North visiting him, and to whom he expres sed his usual confidence in the attachment of his slaves. The Quaker was incredulous, and so Clay vauntingly determined to put the matter to the test. An old house slave—one who enjoyed his confidence, who had been always well treated and who seemed to entertain a real affection for his master—was called, and entered tho room. "Tom/' said Mr. Clay, "here's a gentle man from the North who says yon and the other boys are miserable here, and want to be free. You may go away from home with him if you like." The old negro was puzzled and almost scared. He shook his head doubtingly. "You are free, Ttin, and can leave me if yoq, want to," said Jiie master. The negro trembled with «motion. At lest, all excitement he cried : "Are you in earn est, massa? can I go North and be free?" "Yes, if you want to leave me and your old home, you can go." "I'll go, massa. I'll go anywhere to be free." And the eld fellow was beside him self with jey and gratitude at his expected liberation. Thi« was not, however, what theslavehold wanted or expected. He became very * of a it, • angry, ordered the poor, credulous sieve away, and soon made his Northern friend »ware that his room was bottarthan b»pom peny. Of course Tom was'never freed, but it i„ probable that Mr. OlaJ Was thenceforth ten assured of the affection ef his negroes for slave-life, r ... -r Harder eftinlonixto in Tea«*. Under date of January 1, a corresp ondetit writes from Brownsville: "Dr, KfostèriCfAlls tin, & Northern man by birth and a Unionist in feeling, found'himself in a whirlpool of treason, and having a largo family dependent on -hin» fbr support, while his heart revolted at rebellion, resolved to keep himself clear Ot it, and as it was out of his power to effect anything against it determined at least give it no aid. I', vit his neutrality soon fas tened suspicion upon him, and at the urgent citations of hit friends he was forced to accept the position of surgeon in the rebel army, to secure him personal safety; but after serving a few months in this capacity he resigned. Two weeks after his resignation he was called one night from his house, and shot down in his own door-yard. He was not a friend of treason, and, therefore, he must not live. ''Two German brothers, living in this coun ty, were suspected of being Unionist. One night they were visited by a band of ruffians with blackened faces (and blacker hearts), taken from their home and led to the river, where they were bouad with their backs to gether, a stone tied to their feet, and thrown into the river. ''I have before me an old copy of the Fort Brown flag, which briefly mentions the fact that a'Yankee' had been hung in one of the interior counties. Commenting upon it, the editor sayS; 'Timely notice was given all who did not endorse the war for South.erq independence to leave the .State and go be youeji the lines of tho Confederacy. It is no fault of our people if they have not availed themselves of the opportunity. We cannot fully endorse such stringent measures, but tho lesson must bo taught that traitors not be tolerated among us."
