DAVIS & Co., in their anxiety to secure for
eign recognition and aid,offered, in lieu therefor,
to abolish slavery in a given time, while they
Would covenant at once to secure the freedom of
every negro child born in the slave states. It
is presumed that this offer was made under
standingly, as to the ttbility of society in the
south to submit to such a change, and the wil
lingness also of the slave-breeder and owner to
lose their investment in such property. View
ing this matter impartially, we have reason to
believe that what the south voluntarily offered
to the governments of Europe, in order to secure
the solution of their pretensions and difficulties,
the government of the United States has a
right to demand before it will yield any terms
of peace to the rebellious intriguers of the
south. If the people of the south can af
ford to emancipate their slaves to flatter the
abolitionists of England they should be com
pelled to do it by the federal government as a
means of safety against future rebellion. If
emancipation is worth foreign recognition, do
mestic favor and friendship are equally worthy
of tkp same measure. No reasonable man will
deny this claim, and therefore as an indemnity
for the past and a guaranty for the future, the
United States will be justified in claiming from
the leaders of the rebellion what they volunta
rily offered to European governments—emancipa
tion in a given time and freedom to all born after a
SIXTY YEARS AGO, Thomas Jefferson suggested
the idea of gunboats, now so fearfully reduced
to practical purposes in quelling the slave hold
er's rebellion. As the idea of a gunboat was
then regarded as the very highest of folly, even
though the suggestion eminated from one so
eminently distinguished aed learned as the il
lustrious author of the Declaration of Inde
pendence ; so at the present day was the sug
gestion of a mortar boat estimated as an equal
folly. The test of gun boats being fairly made,
and their efficiency as fairly established, the
next success to be achieved related to the ca
pacity of similar boats to sustain the concussion
of a mortar. A number of boats constructed at
St. Louie, by Theodore S. Adams, of this city,
were recently tested, and the result has proven
that they were capable of resisting the terrible
concussion attending the firing of a thirteen
inch shell. These experiments are of course
very gratifying to the Ordnance Department,
while they are none the less pleasing to the
friends of Mr. Adams in this city, who feel an
equal pride with himself, id the success and ef
ficiency of his efforts as a naval constructor.
THE FACT THAT THE VIRGINIA LEGISLATURE has
resolved to enroll the free negroes of that state,
and force them to fight in-the rebel army, has
never been referred to by those journalists in the
north who are constantly insisting that the ne
gro has nothing to do with this struggle. And
yet no_ fact of the rebellion is better known
than the one to which we now refer. It is not
only in the state of Virginia that this enroll
ment is enforced, but in all the other slave rebel
states the free and bond black masses are com
pelled to lend all their aid to the rebellion.—
When they cannot be used as fighting men,
they are employed to sustain the army by their
industry—and thus the negro is made to sustain
treason. Will the Breckinridge Democratic
editors of the north, who are so solicitous that the
free negroes of the free states may be prevented
from sharing the dangers and the death of this
struggle, explain the difference between a north
ern free negro fighting willingly to sustain a
free government, and a southern free negro
being compelled to fight to destroy such a gov
WHERE are the paladins, fire-eaters, bravos,
and great men who blustered so boldly in Con
gress against the North a little over a year
ago, and told us of the invincible courage of
the south, and the craven cowardice of the peo
ple of the free states? In reading over the
accounts of the battles for liberty, w hear of
no brave deeds performed by Pryor, and Relit,
and Cobb, and Toombs, and Wigfall, and Iver
son. They seem to have subsided utterly, and
to have left the heat and burden, the danger
and the death of the bitter day to the obscure
and deluded men whom they have pushed to
the fore front of the conflict.
Gov't:twos Crams, at the presentation of
Sags to Col. Williams's Thirty-first regiment,
and Col. Campbell's Fourth Cavalry, was re
ceived by a salute of twenty-one guns. The
presentation took place on Saturday last, and
was participated in by several distinguished
gentlemen from this State. It is gratifying to
note the fact, that Gov. Curtin has a hold on
the volunteers from this State, which is alike
the result of incessant toil and vigilance on his
part in their behalf, and on the part of the
volunteers of the utmost confidence in the
EVIMYBODY SATISFIED.—Those who have re
commended a delay in the advance of our ar
mies, regard recent successes as confirming the
wisdom of the policy of prudence and prepara
tion. Those, on the contrary, who have been
impatient for an advance, insist that it is now
demonstrated that it was only necessary to at
tack the rebellion, to put it down. Thus every
body is satisfied and complacent.
pennspluanta Mail)) (telegraph, Dinky afternoon, /thrum 17, 1862
The form and the political influence of a na
tionality may be destroyed, but Its sentiment
can never be eradicated. It is love of home
in its highest sense—a deep regard for things
personal, which, while it does not equal the
tender heart affections of a man, rises above
the simplicity of these with all the grandeur
which its proportions can alone assume. The
national sentiment of love and regard for one's
country, its glory and its greatness, is elicited
in many ways, but never sooner than when
that country is in danger. The Russian, whose
flesh quivers as it yields to the thong, or who
becomes frantic with the agony inflicted by the
knout, is still ready to bear his breast as a
rampart between his country and its foes. The
Turk adores his country as he sees its glory
reflected in the crescent. The Moor was extermi
nated in name, and almost in race, but those
who remainedcultivated their revenge and their
love of country amid their crumbling Alham
bras, until the stilleto of the Spaniard wasted
their blood, tore down their altars, and left
their names only to the keeping of the tradi
tions of the world. The Waldenses, who lived
in caves and on barren rocks, suffered peril by
night and starvation by day, never forgot their
country. A hymn which extols Ireland makes
an Irishman forget his gloomy past, dreary
present and uncertain future. Thus do the
people of all lands, whether it is those most
absolutely oppressed, or those who, like the
English masses, are ignorant enough to believe
that they are free because they can elect a
Parliament to legislate for the benefit of a cor
rupt and ignorant aristocracy, provided the
elector own a portion of the soil—thus all the
people, everywhere, cultivate national senti
ments and regard, which are developed in their
songs, made eloquent in their oratory, and
famous in their deeds of daring. It is seldom
that history has to record the mad resolve of a
people banded to destroy all they possessed
that was great or glorious. Even while the
forms of a government were being changed,
and when the mobs of a nation were rushing
madly to the destruction of outward represen
tations and peculiar objects of their hatred,
this sentiment of nationality, which preserves
the glory in its devotion to the honor of the
government, seemed to animate the rudest and
the harshest of such desperate men.
—lt has been reserved for the people of the
first free government that the sun ever shone
upon, to originate the first rebellion for the entire
destruction of not only certain forms of their
government, but of their actual and entire
nationality. This is the object of the slave holders'
rebellion. The men who organized that rebel
lion did not band for the redress of any par
ticular wrong, because they had suffered no
grievance and were chaffing with no oppression.
They aimed at the annihilation of the nation
ality of the government, and imagined when
that was destroyed, its civilization would also
be impeded, and thus would be secured the
triumph of the barbarism which they represent
in a struggle they would feign make the world
believe, is a revolution striving for the emanci
pation of an oppressed and dreadfully wronged
people. When the history of this rebellion
comes to be fairly written, then will this out
rageous and damnable purpose be more fully
established, and then for the first time will the
annals of the world be degraded with the fact
of a portion of one nation seeking to destroy
that entire nation, simply because they were
not equal to the sublime task of competing with
their fellow-citizens in the race of progress and
the great work of social and civil development.
It will constitute a page in moral obliquity
from which the future student of history will
turn with disgust; and the soldier, with con
tempt, will regard its failure as a vindication of
man's right to take up arms in a righteous
cause, while the unrighteousnees of the cause
thus represented in an attempt to destroy a
proud nationality, will be hest illustrated in the
eternal disgrace of those thus engaged. Let
us not, then, despair, though our nationality
is now in danger. Let us not despair, because
their are proud vindication reserved for it,
which will make it as perpetual as time. Let
us not grow feint, though it must be battled
for amid carnage and death. Its songs and its
grandeur will issue from this contest, as en
chanting and sublime as they came forth from
the struggle of the revolution, made the won
ders of the world by their irresistable influence,
and the glory of the people by their power and
their truth. We fight for our nationality—its
Christian influences and civilizing progress!
Those who contend with us, battle for a bar
barism thet has been renounced by the least
civilised nations on the face of the globe.
Therefore, and with God's aid, we must tri
THE EFFECTS OF VICTORY.
We have no taste for the perusal of the bloody
details of battles.. We have less desire to com
ment upon the horrible incidents of attack
and retreat, but we cannot refrain frOm allu
ding to the fact, that the recent victories of our
troops in the south-west have inspired the coun
try with the most glorious hope and anticipa
tions. Two great facts have been established
by these victories. The first and most impor •
taut of these is, that the masses of the south
are not as blindly devoted to rebellion as their
leaders would have the world believe. In North
Carolina and other localities it has been already
demonstrated that a strong Union feeling pre
vails, to the extent even of extending aid and
encouragement to our troops as they invade ti e
territory where rebellion has been proclaimed
the strongest. It was the boast of the leaders
in this reb :Ilion, when they raised their crim
son banner, that the people of the south were
united—that they were animated by the single
purpose of emancipation from all political union
with the people of the east, north and west,
and that in the cause which had been inaugu
rated in treason they intended to invest their
all, to perish or succeed. These boasts and as
sertions for a time misled the nations of the
world. They misled, too, a large portion of
the people of the north, who were in doubt as
to the policy of coercing an unwilling people
in an allegiance to a government which they had
deliberately and forcibly repudiated. But events
now 40ove that the people thus claimed as
haviniteen anxious to escape the federal power
and authority, are 'jubilant at the approach of
the federal troops, and hail their appearance as
the signal for Union demonstrations. Certainly,
such a result is worthy of more admiration and
applause than any which can to achieved
through the agonizing throbs and bloudy offer
ings of battle.
The other fact demonstrated in these victo
ries, is the superiority of northers courage,
fortitude and invincible tact in battle. We
have heard the taunt ott repeated, that the
insuperiority of the people in the free states was
too great to warrant any doubt as to the result
of a contest between them and the people of
the south. Theee • assertions have been in
dulged in so often, and apparently allowed to
pass unrefut3d, that the world beg , n to be
lieve there was some truth in the charge thus
implied, and that in reality, the people of the
free states were only so many arrant knaves
and cowards, seeking wealth in speculation
and power in oppressing those unable to resist
their encroachments. Wherever this expres
sion has prevailed, it is destined shortly to be
removed. The falsehood is so 'n to give way
to the great fact, t ' the people of the free
states are as proftciin the science of war,
as they are in the other sciences which bless
and ennoble a people when they are successfully
prosecuted. And while we have no taste for
the bloody details .of these battles, the facts
which are thus established amid gore and
carnage, will render unnecessary any future
very rigorous legislation to hold the revolted
states to their allegiance. The sate facts will
also change the opinion of foreign governments
as to our ability for self-government; while we
would not be astonished if they imparted an
altered tone to the diplomacy, and the discus,.
Mon of the British Cabinet and Parliament. It
is a terrible, but a necessary and just manner
in which to vindicate the authority and pro
claim the power of the national government.
THE PAY OF COMPANY AND REGI
The rule which deprives a volunteer officer of
pay until he has recruited a certain number of
men, has already been a source of much em
barrasment and actual hardship among a class
of brave and patriotic men. It seems peculi
arly disgraceful that the government should
ask a number of men to travel over the coun
try, visit distant localities, labor to induce
men to enroll themselves as recruits, and do
all this at their own expense. When the first
appeal was made for men, there was no labor
required to raise a brigade. Then indeed, a
division could have bees. recruited and organ
ized in the same time that it now requires to
raise a regiment. Individuals, then,c ould very
readily submit to a deprivation of pay, be
cause iegiments rallied to standards in a sin
gle day. But as the business of recruiting
is now conducted, the man who attempts to or
ganize a regiment finds that be has undertaken
a herculian task, and that he is fortunate if he
succeeds and escapes bankruptcy. The govern
ment of the United States cannot expect Its
loyal citizens to conduct this war on their indi
vidual expenses, and yet the regulation which
insists on a captain or regimental officers to
raise a certain number of men before they re
ceive any pay, seernslto imply such a desire;
because if a man deserves pay for recruiting a
regiment, he should have pay also for recruit
ing a squad. Those who are recruiting are cer
tainly as fully in the service of the country as
those who are in battle array before, or in eager
pursuit after, the enemy.
This claim of pay, on the part of these offi
cers, has a practical meaning and truthfulness
about it that need not be discussed in a lengthy
editorial to impress the people with its justice.
We believe that these company and regimental
officers should be paid—paid as are the officers
. of the regular army when new regiments are
to be organized. The government should not
permit any man to fight unrequited in this
contest. It should see that all are equally re
garded and remunerated. Therefore we trust
that the authorities will give this subject some
attention, and that this act of justice so long
deferred to the gallant volunteer officers in the
service of the country, will be legalized by such
legislation as will at once extend the necessary
relief. We content ourselves with merely sug
gesting the justice of this claim, without pro
posing any plan by which it can be met and
satisfied. That is a matter belonging to the
Legislature or to Congress.
WHAT IT MEANS.
The complete success of the federal arms al
ready announced, will be irrefutable proof to
the country and the world, of the justice of
the Union cause. Although might does not
prove right, it is a verity that the truth is
mighty and will prevail. When an appeal has
been taken from ballots to bullets, and the ap
pealing party is again beaten, his defeat is the
crowning demonstration of the rottenness of
his cause and the atrocity of his course. In in
telligence, spirit, energy and valor, the South
erner and Northener do not widely differ. Both
have to some extent the same characterist
ics. As to wealth, the superiority lies in this
instance with the greater numbers. If the lat
ter are in earnest they must conquer, and the
conquest will be proof of their earnestness.—
The result will have a moral significancy a
thousand times greater than that of a severely
and fairly earned victory at the polls. Men
think more honestly before going to fight than
before going to vote. They reflect, with more
seriousness before throwing their lives, fortune
and honor into the scale of battle, than before
dropping their votes into the ballot-box. In
strictest truth, the war is an awful and terrible
canvass, a franchise of fire and blood, out of
which is to come forth, in • the sublimest and
purest sense, that "voice of the people," which
"is the voice of God."
Were it not so, what hope would remain for
justice or liberty on the earth? If these may
at any time be overthrown by an appeal to war
and if the sword of the freeman cannot be re
lied upon to maintain the government and de
crees of the people, freedom is impossible, the
beet aspirations of man are doomed to perpetual
disappointment, religion is a.. mocking illusion,
and there is no God.
