its Private History—The Circumstances
Under which it was Issued—gr. Lin
coln's own Account.
In the radeperianTa this week; Mr.
F. B. Carpenter continues his "Per
sonal Recollections of Mr. liincoln." It
was early in February, 1864, when the
artist first visited Washington, with
the view of commencing his great pic
ture, 'Emancipation Refore the Cabinet.'
"My first interview with the Presi
dent," says Mr. Carpenter, "took place
the next day, at the ,customary Satur
day aftCrnoon public reception. Never
.shall I forget the thrill which wont
through my whole being an I first
caught sight of that tall, gaunt form
through a distant door, bowed down,
it seemed to me, even then, with the
weight of the nation he curried upon
his heart, as a, mother carries her suf
‘fering child, and thought of the place
he hold in the affections of tho people,
and the prayers ascending constantly,
day after day, in his behalf. The
.crowd was passing through the roams,
and presently it was my turn and
name to be announced. Greeting me
very pleasantly, ho soon afterwards
made an appointment to see me in his
official chamber, directly after the
, close of the 'reception '• The hour na

Watched daily, with so many conflict

The President was alone, and already
:deep in official business, which was
-always pressing. He received me
with the frank kindness and Simplicity
!so characteristic of his nature; and,
after reading Mr. Lovejoy's note, said:
'Well, Mr. Carpenter, we wil.l ; turn
Fran firiooseirero, and try to give you
a good ehance to work out your idea.'
Then giving me,a,plaeo .close beside
his own arm-chair, he entered upon the
account which I shall now attempt to
write out, as nearly as possible in his
own words, of the circumstances at
tending the adoption of the emancipa

now take up the history of the
- Proclamation 'itself, as Mr. Lincoln
gave it to me, on the occasion of our
first interview, as written down by
myself soon afterward :
"'lt bad got to • be,' said he, 'mid
summer, 1802. Things had gone out
from bad to worse, until I felt we bad
reached the end of our rope on the
Plan of operations wo had been pur
suing; that wo had about played our
last card, and must change our tactics,
.or lose the game! I now determined
!limn the adoption of the emancipation
policy : and, without consultation with,
oOr knowledge of; the Cabinet, I pre
pared the original draft of the, procla
mation, and, after much anxious
thought, called a meeting upon the
subject. This was the last of July, or
the first part of the month of August,
1862." (The exact date he did not
remember.) "This Cabinet meeting
took place, I think upon a Saturday,
All were present, excepting Mr. Blair,
the Postmaster General who was ab
eont at the opening of the discussion,
but came in subsequently. I said to
the Cabinet that I bad resolved upon
this step, and had not called them to
gether to ask their advise, but to lay
the subject matter of a proclamation
before them; suggestions as to which
would be in order after they had heard
read. Mt. Lovejoy," said he, "was

blacks. Mr. Blair, after he came in,
deprecated the policy, on the ground
that it would cost the Administration
the fall elections. Nothing, however,
was offered that 1 had not already
fully anticipated and settled in my
own mind, until Secretary Seward
spoke. Said he: "Mr. President, I ap
prove of the proclamation, but I ques
tion the expediency of its issue at this
juncture. The depression of the pub
lie mind, consequent upon our repeated
reverses, is so great that I fear the ef
fect of so important a step._ It may be
viewed as the last measure of an ex
hausted Government—a...cry for help;
the Government stretching forth its
hands to Ethiopia, instead of Ethiopia
stretching forth her hands to the Gov
ernment." 'His idea:' said the Presi
dent, :was that it would be considered
our last shriek, on the retreat.' (This
was the precise expression.) "Now,"
continued Mr. Seward, 'while I ap
prove the measure, I suggest, sir, that
you postpone its issue, -until you can
give it to the country supported by
military success, instead of issuing it,
as would be the case now, upon the
greatest disasters of the war I' Said
Lincoln : "The wisdom of the view
of the Secretary of State struck mo
with very gehat force. It was an as
pect of the case that, in ally thought
upon the subject, I had entirely over
looked. The result was that I put the
draft of the Proclamation aside, as
you do Your sketch for a picture, wait
ing for a victory. From time to time
I added or changed a line, touching it
up here and there, waiting the pro
gress of events. Well, the next news
wo had was of Pope's disaster, at Bull
Run. Things looked darker than ever.
Finally came the week of the battle of
Antietam. 1 determined to wait no
longer. The news came, I think on
Wednesday, that the advantage was
on our side. I was then staying at the
'Soldier's Home,' (three miles out of
Washington.) Here I finished writing
the second draft of tho preliminary
.prodlamation; came up on Saturday;
called the Cabinet together to hear k,
and it was published the following
"'lt was a somewhat remarkable
fact," he continued, 'that there was
just one hundreo..days .between the
dates of the two proclamations, issued
upon the 22d of September and the Ist
day of January*. Lbad not made.the
:calculation'at the time:"
At the final meeting on Saturday
another interesting incident occurred
in connection with Secretary Seward.
The President had written the impor-
Aant part ofthe .proolamation in.these
"That on the first day of trannany
in the year alear Lord one thousand
eight 'hundred and sixty-three, all per
sons held as slaves within any State or
designated part of a State, the people
whereof shall then be in rebellion
against the United States, shall
then, ithenceforward,nnd forever FREE;
and the Executive 'Government of the
United States, including the military
and naval authority thereof, will rec
ognize the ,freedom of such persons,
and Will do no act or acts to repress
such persons, or any of them, in any
efforts they may make for their.actual
freedom." "When I finished reading
this paragraph," resumed Mr. Lincoln,
'Mr. Seward stopped and said: think,
Mr. President, that you should insert
after the word 'recognize,' in that sen
tence, the words 'and maintain.' I re
plied that I had already fully consid
ered the import of that expression in
this connection, but I had not intro
duced it, because it was not my way
to promise what I was not entirely
sure that I could perform, and I was
not prepared to say that I thought we
were exactly able to 'maintain' this.
"But," said he, 'Mr. Seward insisted
that wo ought to take this ground, and
the words finally went in l' * *'
In February last, a few days after
the passage of the "Constitutional
Amendment," I was in Washington,
and was received by Mr. Lincoln with
the kindness and familiarity which
had characterized our previous inter
course. I said, ono day, that I was
very proud to have been the artist to
have first conceived of the design of
painting a picture commemorative of
the Act of Emancipation—that subse
quent occurrences bad only confirmed
my own first judgment of that act as .
the most sublime moral event in our
history. 'Yes,' said he, and never do
I remember to have noticed in him
more earnestness of expression of man.
ner, 'as affairs have turned, it is the cen
tral A.Ct of my 4dministration, and the
great event of the _Nineteenth Century!.
remember to have asked him, on
one occasion, if there was not some op
position manifested on the part of sev
eral members of the Cabinet to the
emancipation policy. He said, in re
ply: "Nothing more than I have sta
ted to you. Mr. Blair thought we
should lose the fall elections, and op.
posed it on that ground only." Said I,
"I have understood that Secretary
Smith was not in favor of your action.
Mr. Blair told me that, when the meet
ing closed, he and the Secretary of the
Interior went away together, and that
the latter told him, if the President
carried out that policy, ho might count
on losing Indiana sure!" 'He never
said anything of the kind to me,' re
turned the President. 'And how,' said
I, 'does Mr. Blair feel about it now ?'
'Oh,' was the prompt reply, 'He pro
ved right in regard to the fall elections,
but he was satisfied that we have since
gained more than wo lost!' I have
been told,' said I, 'that Judge Bates
doubted the Constitutionality of the
Proclamation.' He never expressed
such an opinion in my bearing,' replied
Mr. Lincoln. 'No member of the Cab.
met Ayer dissented from the policy in
any conversation with me.'
There was ono marked element of
Mr. Lincoln's character admirably ex
pressed by the Hon. Schuyler Colfax,
in his oration at Chicago upon his
death: "When his judgment, which
acted slowly, but which was almost as
immovable as the .eternal hills when
settled, was grasping some object of
importance, the arguments against his
own desires seemed uppermost in his
mind, and, in conversing upon it, he
would present those arguments to see
if they could bo rebutted."
In illustration of this, I need only
hero recall the fact that the interview
between himself and the Chicago del
egation of elerg i ymeu, appointed to
urge upon him the issue of a Proclama
tion of Emancipation, took place Sep
tember :13,1862,; just about .4 month
after the President had declared his
established purpose to take this step
at the Cabinet meeting which I have
described. Tle said to - the •committee:
"I do not want to issue a document
that the whole world will zee roust
necessarily be inoperative, like the
Pope's bull against the comet !" After
drawing out their views upon the sub,
ject, ho concluded the interview with
these memorable words :
"Do not misunderstand me, because
I have mentioned these objections.

friends "there had never been a time

et meeting, immediately after the bat

issue of the September proclamation,

The last part of this was uttered in
a low tono, and appeared to be heard
by no ono but Secretary Gbaso who
was sitting near him. He asked the
President if ho correctly understood
him. Mr. Lincoln replied, "I made a
solemn von before God that if General

declaration of freedom to the slaves!"

Fat and Lean Folks
The American Phrenological Journal
advises the following dietaries for the
above classes of persons. Judgment
must be applied in applying them, as
they presuppose unimpaired digestive
powers. Individuals taking them as
a general guide must omit such articles
in the "eat and drink" prescription as
they find their stomachs incapable of
digesting, or as in any way disagree

or, potted meats; bread as far as prac-
ticable (except the dry toast); biscuits,

Salted meats of. all kinds; salted fish;

How to Enlarga the Lungs,
The following prescription for enlar
ging the lungs is being extensively
experimented upon, and is found to
work like a charm. Try it;
"Step out into the .purest air you
can find, stand perfectly .erect, with
the bead and shoulders back, and then,
fixing the lips as though you were go
ing to ty . histle, draw the air, not thro'
the nostrils, but through the lips, into
the lungs: When,the chest is about
full, raise the arms, keeping them ex
tended, with the palms of the hands
down, as you sack in the air, so as to
bring them over the head just as the
lungs aro quite full. Then drop the
thumbs inward, and after gently forc
ing the arms backward, and the chest
open, reverse the process by . which
you draw your breath, till the lungs
aro entirely empty. This process
should be repeated three or four times
during the day. It is impossible to
describe to ono who has never tried it
the glorious sense of vigor which fol
lows the exorcise. It is,the best ex.
peotorant in the world. We know a
gentleman the measure-of whose chest
has been increased sonic three inches
during. as many months."
A word of caution will not be out of
place. Persons with weak lungs and
sensitive bronchial tubes should avoid
very cold air in performing this exer
cise, or should inhale it through the
nostrils, which is the. proper way in
ordinary breathing. Such persons
shotild also commence cautiously and
carefully, so as not to strain or - injure
the parts affected. increasing the ex
ercise gradually, as the strength in

Something About Reading.
While many do not read at all in
these times, there are those who rend
too much, particularly the young. A
moderate amount of reading and plea.
ty of observation is what will develop
the youthful mind. In an amusing ar
ticle upon the "Physicians and Sur
geons of a bygone generation," a for
eign journal describes Abernethy con
versing thus with a certain patient: '•I
opine," said he, "that more than half
your illness arises from too much rea
ding." On my answering that read
ing was chiefly history; which amused
while it instructed, ho replied, that is
no answer to my objection. At your
time of life a young fellow should en
deavor to strengthen his constitution,
and lay in a stock of health. Besides,
too much reading never made an able
man: It is not. so much the extent
and amount of what we read that
serves us, as what we assimilate and
make our own. "It is that, to use an
illustration borrowed from my profes
sion, that constitutes the chyle of the
mind. I have always found that really
indolent men, men of what I would
call flabby intellects, are great readers
It is far easier to read than to think,
to reflect or observe ; and these fel

cram themselves with the words or

but it is not so. In my profession I
have observed that the greatest men
were not the mere readers, but the
men who observed, who reflected, who
fairly thought out an idea: To learn
to reflect and observe is a grand de

TREE Proavavito.—lt 18 an error to
manure, in the hole, newly planted
trees, whether fruit or forest. Make
the earth deep, fine and rich from pre
vious manuring and cultivating, but
do not use any manure, unless it is the
very finest loamy compost, at the time

manure liberally in auturan. If set

wofully neglected and suffer the want
