FREEDOM TO SLAVES.—It is IL com
-111011 whine with all pro—slavery prop
agandists, that any attempt to give
freedom to the slave is an infraction of
the rights of the States, inasmuch as it
disturbs the labor system and compli
cates the domestic relations. This
weak apology for a great sin has been
used with groat effect in Kentucky.
We are glad to see - that Gen. Logan
disposes of that objection in a trench
ant paragraph which we extract from
a recent speech delivered at Louis
"There is another objection urged to
the emancipation of slaves in Kentuc
ky. It is said that if the slaves arc
made free, Kentucky will be without
or. This is a great mistake. If
they will remain, and, for wages, will
labor with more energy than they
have heretofore done. if not made
liee; with no laws to protect this in
stitution, surrounded as you aro by
the free States offering to them an
asylum and wages for their labor, they
will. desert their masters and find for
themselves a,home in a foreign State
Where the spirit of freedom is univer
sal and the curse.of filavory driven from
the land. It is natural that they should
do so, and no man but a crazy man
could calculate otherwise. And would
it .not be better for Kentucky to show
her magnanimity, her patriotism, her
desire for .a lasting peace, and the ro
turn of fraternal - feelings, by at once
doing that which, if she will not do,
will soon itself?. Think of the great
desire on the pgrtofthecivilized world
that the chains of slavery, still clank
ing in your State, should be stricken
from the , limbs of the black man by
the generosity and Chistian spirit of
your own people. Let your cloud.
kiising hills and smiling valleys once
test the energies of free labor, and ere
long the numbers you aro behind your
sister States in population you will
gather difference in wealth; you will
accumulate enterprise, capital, intel
ligence; and Christianity will leap for
joy over the new and bright prospects
before them. Kentucky will then take
the position she ought to occupy
among her sister States, and .claim
rank and respectability second to

Secretary .Stanton'a Report.
During the xvar, one of the most dif
ficult things to learn, says the Philo"—
delphia Ledger, was the precise extent
of enlistments, and the number of the
military force we had in the field.
Secretary Stanton has just furnished a
report which lets a little light into the
popular darkness on this subject.
There were enlisted for the army from
November 1, 1863, to November 1,
1864, 402,608 white and colored troops.
Colored volunteers enlisted in rebel
States from January 1, 184, to Octo
ber 14, of the same year, 22,143. In
the same period the recruits for the
regular army were 13,871. Veterans
and re , onlisted before the expiration
of their service, between November 1,
1863, and November 1, 1864, 136,507.
Drafted and substitutes, 75,006. For
the naval service and marine corps,
from February to November, 1864, 24,-
683; Making a total of 675,452. The
report says :
"In estimating the number of troops
called into the service, it has been the
care of the Department to take into
account the whole number of men
mustered, without regard to the fact
that the same persons may have boon
previously discharged after having
been accepted and credited on preco
A largo part (near two hundred
thousand) of the men accepted in the
years 1861 and 1862, were soon found
to be unfit for service, and wore dis
charged. This accounts, partially, for
the largo excess carried forward from
the calls of 1862 and deducted from
those of 1863."
The colored troops enlisted up to
October 30, 1861, numbered 101,950.
This branch of the service, up to that
time, lost by battle, discharges, deser
tions, and diseases, 33,132 men. Up
to November 7, 1864, Gen. Thomas
had organized along the Mississippi
river a force of 56,320 colored troops.
The operations of the draft aro very
remarkable. '.Cho report is dated No.
vomber 25, 1864. Prom July 1, 1804,
up to that time, 130,000 names were
added to the enrollment list, and 285,•
398 names were stricken off. This en
rollment showed the national force, not
called out up to November I, 1864, to
consist of 2,784,266 men. In the draft
of 1863 the quota drafted for was 194,-
962, with fifty per cent. added. The
report says :
Of this number 39,417 failed to re
port, and 164,887 were exempted from
physical and other causes, 52,237 paid
commutation, 26,002 furnished substi
tutes ; and 9,848 were held to service.
The total deficiency drafted for was
50,367 • the number reported and ex
amined 85,861 ; the number exempted
for physical disability 31;446 ; the
number exempted for other causes 19,-
648; the number held to personal ser
vice 3,418; the number furnished sub
stitutes 8,003; the number who paid
On September 19, 1861, another
draft was had, and the result, known
up to November 1, was as folloWs
Number reported and examined 72,-
432; number exempted for physical
disability 20,332 ; number exempted
for other causes 19,797; number held
to personal service 19,058 ; number
turn isrma - strusinutes a,,,*,57--
These facts, adds the Ledger, clearly
show that, as a means of recruiting,
tlio army, the draft was entirely inade
quate. Those who were exempted,
those who ran away from the draft,
and those who paid commutation,
swallowed up nearly the entire num
ber drafted. Tho number held to per.
sonal service was but a small propor
tion of the whole amount. This proves
that volunteering, however expensive
it may be, is the most popular, surest,
and speediest means of raising an army.
and of making satisfied and willing
soldiers. The average measurement
of the chest, at inspection of the re
omits was, 35,16 inches. The average
height was 5 feet 6.44 inches. Vermont
troops showed the greatest number of
inches-around the chest and the great
est height; but Pennsylvania recruits
were close . upon Vermont—for her
men measured an average of 5 feet
7.08 inches, against Vermont's 5 feet
7:62. In the measurement around the
chest the men of Pennsylvania were
1:55 inches' less than Vermont: The
Veteran Reserve Corps shows that
nearly every fourth man has been
transferred to it on account of disabil
ity from honorable wounds. Tho hot ,
ses and mules in the army amount to
300,000. During the first eight months
of the year 1864, the cavalry of the
Army_ of the Potomac was supplied
with two remounts—nearly 40,000.
The expenditures for the Ordnance
Department during the year were 08,-
5 9 2 , 822 / and there remained in the ar
senals on the 30th of June last 2,037
Mil cannon, and siege guns, 1,304,947
small arms, and 1,831,853 pounds of
artillery ammunition. There wore in
operation during the year 6,soomiiles
of military telegraph, of which 76 miles
aro submarine. One million eight hun
dred thousand telegraph messages
were transmitted during the year, at,
an average cost, charging the whole
yearly expense of construction, main
and operation to them, of
only thirty cents. There wore pur
chased during the year nbont 9,500
army wan-ons, 1,100 ambulances, and '
harness for 175,000 animals: The spe
cial report of animals and means of
transportation with the several armies
during the year are imperfect, but it is
estimated that there were about 300,
000 horses and mules in the service of
the army, of which the horses wore
about 170,000, and the mules about
The number of men who have died
I in hospitals, in the vicinity of Wash
ington, from August 1, 1861, to Au
, gust 1, 1864, is stated at 12,708, of
whom 4,910 were natives of the United
States. . .
Over two hundred flags. captured
from the rebels in various battles, re
ceived during the year, aro deposited
for safe keeping. Many others are
supposed to have been disposed of by
persons who captured or had them in
possession, in ignorance of their being
public property. One hundred and six
enlisted men were presented with
medals of honor for capturing rebel
flags and other acts of bravery.
The statistics of the Surgeon Gener
al's Vepurtinent show that there were
in operation on the 80th of Juno, 1804,
190 hospitals, with a capacity of 120,-
521 beds. During the year the health
of the entire army was better than is
usual with troops engaged so constant
ly on active duty and in arduous cam
paigns. No destructive epidemics pre•
veiled in any section, and the number
of sick and wounded, although large,
was Comparatively small in the pro
portion it bore to the whole army. At
the close of the year the number of
sick and wounded, both with their
commands • and in general hospitals,
was less than sixteen (16) per cent. of
the strength of tho army. Of this
number 9.3 per cent. were sick, and
6.46 per cent. wounded. The deaths
from disease during June, 1864, were
2.98 per thousand of mean strength ;
from wounds, 3.10 per thousand; total
deaths, 6.08 per thousand, or six-tenths
of one per cent. for the month. Dur
ing the same month of the previous
year the total was 7.3 per thousand of
mean , strength, or over seven-tenths of
ono per cent. There were furnished
during the year to disabled soldiers
669 legs and 339 arms.

NORT - WESTERN HARVEST.—TheC hi

in all that region, will be ono of the
most beautiful on record, notwithstan

recent sovero storms. in Indiana alone,
there would - seem to be some doubts
as to the yield of wheat on account of
injuries received from rain and rust.
In many places the stalk has not been
cut, the yield being so poor. The bay
crop, on the contrary, is very fine, and
promises in some places a yield of five
times as large as that of the previous
season. Corn, oats, and potatoes are
all thriving finely, and give indications
of an abundant yield.
