ri-IE UNION-THE CONSTITUTION-ANL
THE ENFOBCEMENT OF THE LAW.
Monday Afternoon, November 18, 1861.
There are some egotistically sagacious indi
viduals and a few pot-house politicians, who
occasionally exhibit their spleen in denouncing
every man who supports this war, as an Aboli
bonist. With these gentry, the term is designed
to be one of opprobrium, and we have heard it
used, too, by gentlemen who would have the
world suppuse that they are the most perfect
christians and exemplary citizens in the land.
The term Abolitionist has became so common,
that in many parts of the country it is regard
ed as the most disgraceful which could be ap
plied to any individual, simply because of the
ignorance and the violence of the men who so
use it. But when we acme to examine the
definition of the word and the object of those
to whom it is applied ; the term itself is not so •
disgraceful, nor will the memory of the men
to whew it is applied now, suffer much hereaf
ter when liberty, truth, virtue and wisdom are
more esteemed then they are now by the mass
of mankind. An Abolitionist may possibly be
a miscreant. If a man seeks to abolish what is
good—it he advocates the disrupture of entire
communities or proclaimed that it would be
wise and politic to change all present forms of
religion—to give up the Trinity and the God
Head—to swear hostility to the quality of jus
tice, and leave the arbitrators of right to the strong
arms and savage natures of brutal men—if all
this were proposed to be done by asystem of abo
litionism, then there would be some - danger in
the proposition, some real cause for public alarm
—some present and future motive for stern oppo
sition, and some sense and reason in making
this term abolitionist one of opprobrium and dis
grace. But we deny that a single right, human
or divine, has ever been assailed by the aboli
tionists of this country, and while making this
ita..nat .assume to be the advocate of
their faith or the defender of flacav
But as they are constantly assailed we have a
right to refer to the motives which prompt such
assaults ; and in doing so, it is well for the
cause of truth that the present is so prolific in
the horrors perpetrated by the institution of
slavery, else would this whole struggle, with
its fearful responsibilities and atrocities, be
forced upon the free states. And even with
the enormities of the slave power fresh in the
minds of the American people, there are politi
cians who bluster and blunder on in the same
path which has led to these troubles, and who
are determined to persist to the end in the de
fence,and advocacy of slavery.
If slavery had never existed in this country,
rebellion would never have had an advocate or
adherent. It was not the effort made to abol
ish slavery that has envenomed the tooth of
treason. Those who charge these things are
those who are ready to falsify for any purpose, '
regardless whether it be for the destruction of
nations or the annihilation of truth. Our
only source of discord is centered in 'this
institution—our only danger is inculca
ted by its teachings—and our only cor
ruptions spring from its practices. The legisla
tion:of the country proves the truth of these
assertions, because from the very first moment
of its introduction into the proceedings of Con
gress, we date our sectional divisions and our
national heart-burnings. Its southern advocate
made it the absorbing topic of debate, while the
northern adulator yielded to it the most su
preme privileges. The independant spirit of
intelligent men could not abide these aggres
sions without offering at least a show of resist
ance. They were not willing that the fame and
the friendships of the nation should all be ab
sorbed by the prestige of slavery. And because
they have done so—because they regard slavery
as a great moral, social and political evil, the
removal of which would be a benefit to man
kind, they are derided as fanatics or denounced
We leave the discussion of this subject to our
readers. It affords food for reflection, and can
only be pondered by those who divest them_
selves of all prejudices. Se far as we are con
cerned, we would as soon deride the the memory
of the Waldenses or a Hugenout as reproach a
living man for desiring the abolishment of sla
very. His principle may lack present practica
bility in the wordly wisdom and estimation of
man—he may be in advance of the social safety,
distinctions and prejudices of his fellows—but
the man who desires to abolish slavery because
he considers it a wrong to his brother man,
obeys the noble promptings.of a principle in
culcated by God, and must look to Go for his
encouragement and reward until intelligence
and reason prevail to a greater extent in this
land than they do at present.
No QUARTERS TO BE SITOWN.-A dispatch from
Augusta, Georgia, dated the 11th says : The re
port has been current here for the past day or

vannah Charleston, and other places on the
coast, which indicates that "no quarters will be

COST OF THE LATE BATTLE.
The Wabash fired, during the entire action,
900'shots, being all 8,9, 10 and 11-inch shells,
with the exception of a few rifled cannon pro
jectiles of a new pattern, and which were used
simply as a matter of experiment. The Sus
quehanna fired 600 shots, the Bienville 185,
and the avarage of the gunboats and the other
smaller ships may probably be set down at 160
each. There were, in all, 16 vessels engaged on
our side, and probably from all of them were
fired not far from 8,600 shot and shell at the
two forts, Walker and Beauregard, the four
gun battery and the three steamers.
The average cost of each shot, reckoning
shell, round shot, and rifled cannon projectiles
of peculiar make, and taking into account the
value of the powder used to fire them, may be
'set down at about $B. Thus the burned powder
and broken shell, iron of the battle of Port
Royal may be set down as having cost the
country not less than $28,000. Reckoning,
then, says the New York Tribune, a few items
of this battle, beginning with the immense cost
of this fleet, which has been preparing since
August last, the pay of the soldiers, the value
of their food, and the expense of the two lost
vessels on a very moderate scale, the entire cost
is about as follows :
Rent of the vessels up to this time,
Pay of the soldiers, Sm., up to this
Value of rations consumed up to this
Value of clothing worn out up to this
Value of powder burned 28,000
Value of the Governor and Peerless,
lost on the Cataline scale, $30,000 10,000
AN IMPORTANT ORDER
We see that President Lincoln has issued an
order directing the military authorities in Vir
ginia to suspend the civil authorities whenever
they claim to hold authority from Governor
Letcher, and to place all the State officers under
arrest who attempt to interfere with their func
tions. We are glad that the President has ta
ken this step. The existence of the Richmond
authorities, and the exercise of their power,
have caused a great degree of embarrassment to
the army in occupation of the Virginia shores.
It will not do for us to trifle with these people.
If we mean to crush treason in Virginia we must
go about the work in earnest. Our Administra
tion has recognized the Wheeling Government
as the bona fide Government of Virginia, and it
must secure the performance of their duties
without the interference of the rebel agents.—
This course will be the course of the army in its
progress through the Cotton States. It is just
and proper, and rendered necessary by the pie
sent extraordinary and remarkable condition of
DEATH OF Ex-JUDGE SUTHERLAND.—Mr. Joel
B. Sutherland, a well-known citizen of Phila:
delphia, died at his residence, in that city, on
Friday night, in the seventieth year of his age.
The deceased was brought up to the medical
profession, but many years ago he dropped the
practice of medicine to enter rota c po
mat tiff: — He was a prominent member of the
Jackson party in the old district of Southwark,
and he represented the Fir,,t, district in Con
gress from 1827 to 1837. He was a member of
the State Legislature at the time President
Jackson vetoed the bill to recharter the Bank
of the United States, and Dr. Sutherland in
curred the indignation of his party, at that time,
by voting for a recharter of the bank as a State
institution. The deceased was atone period an
associate judge in thet'Court of Common Pleas,
and he also held the position of resident physi
cian at the Laz,aretto. He took part in the war
of 1812 ; and, of late years, he has been active
in his efforts to obtain a substantial recognition
from the Federal Government of the services
rendered by the soldiers who fought in what he
termed "the second war of independence."
Excrrmo NEWS ram. CERICDO, IN WAYNE CO.,
VA.—The Wheeling Intellwencer of Thursday
says : A dispatch was received last evening by
the Governor, from Col. Boles, dated Catletts
burg, Ky., the 12th, stating that four thousand
rebels were marching upon the town of Ceredo,
Wayne county, Va. The small force at that
place had fallen back upon Catlettsburg, where
they had rallied some five or six hundred sol
diers and citizens, who intended to defend the
place to the death. Ceredo is only nine miles
from Guyandotte. Catlettsburg is at the mouth
of the Big Sandy. The minor portion of
Colonel Zeigler's regiment, heretofore stationed
at Ceredo, were sent up the Kanawha about a
The same paper says :
The latest reports from Gauley are that fight
ing was still going on there, as late as Saturday.
Floyd's purposes seemed to be to cut off com
munication through the ferry boat that plies
across the river. Gen. Benham, with a large
force, was four miles below Gauley and two
miles above Loupe creek, and had crossed the
river by means of the steamer Silver Lake,
which had been detained for that purpose. Gen.
Benham is in a fair way to cut off Floyd's re
treat, and, as soon as his position is made
known to Itosencrans, an advance movement
will be made. On Sunday night a body of
three hundred secesh cavalry were at Clinton,
with a view to capture whatever steamer might
pass. This place is on the Sahawha river, five
miles below Cannelton.
OUR. NAVAL TROPHIES. —The trophies from
Port Royal have been apportioned between the
Navy Department and the Navy Yard. The
two cannon have been taken to the Navy Yard,
to occupy places alongside of the trophies of tiv ,
Mexican war, which meet the eye of every visi
tor as soon as he enters the premises. They are
not, as has been represented, "rifled guns of
the newest and most approved pattern," but old
fashioned smooth bore field pieces, of European
manufacture. Over the trunions there is en
graved a crown, indicating that they are colo
nial guns. They bear date 1803. Around the
rim of the breech the words "South Carolina"
are rudely engraved. The flags are displayed
at the Navy Department.
STAMPEDE races ItsaantioN.--Captain Bennett,
with a party of fifty of the Linccan cavalry,
ventured some four miles within the enemy's
pickets a few days ago. He reports that many
of the dwellings, built in fine taste and sur
rounded by beautiful gardens and shrubbery,
have been deserted by their owners, who have
not even taken care of their contents. He saw
silver ware and other valuables lying on the
tables and in the closets, the buildings in all
their appointments bearing evidence of having
been abandoned in great haste. Many of the
negroes tnat he met begged most piteously of
him to take them in safety to, his camp. There
was a general desire expressed by them to came
to the North.

. The heads of Department have been so much
annoyed by visitors that they have not been able
to prepare their annual reports. They have,
therefore, been compelled to resolve to exclude
all visitors until after the meeting of Congress.
In view of this determination, parties who
contemplate visiting Washington for the pur
pose of having interviews with the heads-0
Departments, are advised to defer their joinneY
hither until after the assembling of Congress.
A foraging party went out from Gen. Wads
worth's brigade yesterday, and having procured
a large supply of corn, they started back in the
afternoon. Five of the wagons became de
tached from the main body, and.halting in the
road about two and a half miles to the left of
Falls Church, the men stacked their arms and
went toward a farm house to get something to
eat.. A party of rebel cavalry who had been
scouting in the neighborhood, availing them
selves of the opportunity thus presented, Ad
denly rushed between our• soldiers and their
arms, thus rendering them powerless for re
sistance. The consequence was the capture of
five loaded wagons and it is supposed thirty-one
prisoners. About ten of the soldiers certainly
escaped, and it may be that some of the others
may yet return, as it is not impro' , able that
they sought refuge in the woods. They all be

the place where they were taken is beyond our
lines, and this unfcn tunate affair is the result of
their own carelessness.
It is understood that the Government will,
in the course of a few days, make arrangements
to open trade with Beaufort, S. C. It is report
ed that our forces there have captured fifteen
hundred bales of cotton. It is not stated
whether it will be sent North.

NEW YORK, Nov. 18
THE CAPTURE OF MASON
The Scene on Board the British Vessel.
How the News was Received in
WASHINGTON, Nov. 17
The Navy Department prefers not to publish,
at present, the official reports made by the offs-.
cers of the war steamer San Jacinto, in refer
ence to the capture of Mason and Slidell. The
general facts are these : Commander Wilkes,
evidently a man of "grit," was sent out to
bring home the San Jacinto from the coast of
Africa ; on his return he touched, at Cienfuegos,
where he ascertained that Mason and Slidell
had run the blockade, and were en route to
Europe, probably by the way of Cuba. He
sailed up and went into port at Havanna.
There he ascertained that the Confederate com
missioners had been gone but a few hours,
having sailed in the British mail steamship
Trent, the evening before, (7th Novem
ber.) . He immediately put to sea, direct
ing his course so as to intercept the vessel.
When about forty miles oft Matanzas, in
the old Bahama Channel, the Treat hove in
sight, and the two vessels were soon within
hailing distance. Commodore Wilkes sent a
shot across the bows of the Trod. To this no
attention was paid, when another was directed
near the bow. This brought the steamer to.—
Lieutenant Fairfax, to whom both of the Con
federate passengers were personally known, was
sent on board in a boat, supported with two
more boa's, filled with marines. Lieutenant
Fairfax went on deck and called for Messrs.
Mason and Slidell, who soon appeared. Lieu
tenant Fairfax politely informed them of the
object of his mission, and asked them to go on
board his boat. To this they objected, Mason
remarking that they had paid their passage
to Europe, to tue British Consul at Ha
vanna, (who acts as agent for the mail
steamship line,) and he would not leave
without force. Lieut. Fairfax, pointing to his
marines drawn up on the decks of the British
steamer, said : " You see, sir, I have the force,
if that is what you require !" " Then you
must use it," replied Mason. With this Lieut.
Fairfax placed his hand upon the Senator's
shoulder and pressed him to the gangway.—
At this juncture the passengers rushed forward,
somewhat excited, and attempted to interfere.
The marines immediately showed their bay
onets, and Mason consented to the decision
of Lieutenant Fairfax, asking that he might
be permitted to make his protest in writing.
Just then a fine specimen of an Englishman
rushed on deck in military or naval uniform
(the officer in command of the mails, proba
bly,) and demanded why passengers on board
that ship were molested. Lieut. Fairfax in
formed him that he had stated to Capt. Moir,
of the packet, why he arrested two of his pas
sengers, and further than that he had no ex
planations to make. Protests were then drawn
up, and Mason and Slidell, with their secretaries
Eustis and McFarland, went into the boats of
the San Jacinto. Com. Wilkes sent a message
to the ladies that his best cabin was at their
service if they desired to accompany the priso
ners back to the United States. They, how
ever, declined, and proceeded on the voyage.
The arrest was made en the Bth, and the San
Jacinto arrived with the prisoners at Fortress
Monroe on Friday. Lieut. Taylor was dispatch.
ed to Washington with the official papers, and
the San Jacinto was ordered to New York,
wnence - the prisoners will be forwarded to Fort
Warren, in Boston harbor.
The Trent is not, as has been supposed, an in
tercolonial steamer, plying between the West
India Islands. She is a British international
packet, carrying the British mails, and plying
between Southampton, England, Vera Cruz,
Havana, St. Thomas, and thence back to South
Lieutenant Taylor arrived here at noon, yes
terday, and the news of the arrest created a
profound sensation, and very general and almost
unbounded rejoicing. The act is, outside of
the departments, very generally approved,
though there are various opinions expressed in
the speculations as to the light in which Eng
land will view the transaction. One thing is
evident, England has always favored the right
of search; and. it is a bad law, or rule, that will
not work equally well both ways. Captain
Wilkes was disposed to seize the packet, under
the charge of favoring the enemies of our coun
try, and bring her to Key West; but, finding
that it would seriously disappoint a large num
ber of passengers, he abandoned his purpose.
