of thousands of lives.
This proclamation comes np fully to the
promise of tbe proclamation of September S3,
with the exception of tba exemption or Ten
nessee, which Is as clearly a State In Insurrec
tion as Is Louisiana or Texas. The excep
tion Is doubtless made In deference to the
nnwlse entreaties of Governor Andy Johnson
and bis friends.
In one reelect, the President goes further
than he proposed to do In Septemberi and that
Is, In directing blacks to be received Into mili
tary service, at garrisons, posls, and stations.
This Is a most wfse messnre, as It will enable
our armies to advance with undiminished num
bers, while the duty of gnardlng posts Is per
formed by colored troops. It will also save
our white soldiers from exposure to the pesti
lential airs of certain points which military
necessity requires to be held.
It Is not necessary to say Hist we rejoice over
this proclamation with exceeding Joy.
The President will receive the thanks, not
only of the country, but orthe world andof pos
terity, for Ids courage and wisdom In Issuing It,
The concluding paragraph oMhc proclama
tion deserves to be set. In letters of gold i

Instead of appropriating seven hundred and
fifty millions of dollsrs for tho current support
of the army, an expenditure which will leave
no lasting adtantage behind, and which, from
the cnormoneness or the sum, will be certain
to run Into waste and corruption, let the army
appropriation bill be reduced to moderate di
mensions, and let a portion of what will be
thus saved be applied to permanent works of
military defence.
Can any doubt that the country would gain,
In a military point of view, by cnttlng off twen
ty millions from the army appropriation bill,
and using the money to enlarge the Erie canal
and the Michigan and Illinois canal, lo a ca
pacity sufficient lor the passage of gunboats,
so that we may bare the ssme naval access to
tbe greet lakes which England has through the
Welland canal I Does anybody doubt that the
country would gain by the diversion of three or
four millions from the army, to the opening of
railroad communications for this capital with
deep water on tho Chesapeake, and with the In
terior by t connection with the Baltimore and
Ohio railroad at the Point or hocks t
The public treasury Is not exhaustlcss, and
even the public credit has limits to It. We
must select, rrom the many objects of expendi
ture promising advantage, those which promise
the most advantage, and appropriate the means
of the Government with a view to all tbe calls
which ate made upon It.

chnsetts upon the direct and distinct issue of
the re-election of Mr. Sumner as a Senator of
tbe United Statce, vents Its own spite and the
spile of the defeated politicians whom It repre
sents, by tbe sneering remark, thst the sug
gestion of that distinguished gentleman as the
successor of Gov. Seward In the Cabinet, "fajai
to Urate out afortng rteponu anyieAere."
It Is quite certain that this suggestion of Mr.
Sumuer't nsme In connection with the premier
ship, did not come rrom his personal friends,
who would unanimously oppose his leaving the
Senate, where his presence and services are In
valuable at this ci Isls. The suggestion did not
come at all from pcrsonsl friends, but from tbe
universal rccognttloaorbls fitness to direct the
diplomatic affairs or the country, a fitness Indi
cated not only by his genersl abilities and cul
ture, but by his special ramlllarlty with tho
currents of opinion in Europe, derived from
travel and correspondence. 1 he same circum
stances which caused him to be placed at the
head of the Senate Committee ou Foreign Af
fairs, directed attention to hlra from all quar
ters, when It was supposed that the cfilee of
Secretary of State would be vacated. The sug
gestion of bis nsme was, In truth, the general
recognition of the eminent suitability of his
appointment. It was not thecaseorthe public
responding favorubly or unfavorably lo the
snggeetlon of personal friends, but It was the
pnblic litelf speaking authoritatively for It; elf.
ir there was any voice or dissent, It was only
heard from a little, uarrow, soared aodperrcise
