to abolish slavery in a given time, while they

every negro child born in the slave, states. It
is ,presumed that this offer was made under
standingly, as to the ability of society in the
sofildt "h:t sithmit to such a change, and the wit
baguets elso of the slave-breeder and owner to
lose their investment in such. property. View
ing this ;natter impartially, we have reason to
belleVe tliat what the southyoltintarily 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
mastic 'layer and friendship are equally worthy
of rthe same measure. No reasonable man will
deny this claim, and therefore 813 an indemnity
for the past and a guaranty foi the future, the
United States will be justified in claiming from
the leaders of the rebellion what they volunta

OITY TEArte Atm, 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 emiaated from one so
eminently distinguished and learned as the 11-
Instirions author of the Declaration of Inde
pendence ; so at the present day was the aug
gestion of a mortar boat estimated as an equal
folly. The test of gun boats being fairly made,
an#:itie efficiency as fairly , established, the
neikincoess to be achieved related to the ca
pacity of Similar- boats to sustain the concussion
of trinOttar. A number'of , boats constructed at
Adams, of thls city,
wntstreceutly tested, and the result has proven
that,therwere capable of resisting the terrible
oftscassion attending the firing of a thirteen

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 fain 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 adoree 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 remained cultivated their revenge and their
love of country amid their crurnbling Alham
bras, until the atilleto of the Spaniard wasted
their blood, tore down
: their altars, and
their nausea only to the keeping (if the tradi:
tions of the world. The Waldenses, who lived
in'caves arid`on barren rocks, suffered paril by
night and starvation by day, never forgot their
country. A hyinn 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 mamas, are ignorenkeneugh 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. Evan 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 freegovernmeet 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 olp'eet 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 CiirgiUtioll would also
be impeded, and thus would be secured the
triumph of the barbarlem 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 thii out
rageous and damnalfitsperpose .be more fully
established, and then for,
,tbe.fitst 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 fellew-citizens in the race of progress and
the, great, work of social and ci vil develOpment.
It will constitute a page tit moral obliquity
from which the future student of history will
tern with disgust . and the soldier,' with con
tempt; will `regard its feilitre as a vindication of
man's right to take up arms in a righteous
cane, while the unrighteousnes of• the cause
tints represented in' an attempt to destroy a
prond natioeality, will be beet illustrated in the
eternal disgrace of those thus engaged. Let
us not, then, despair, though our nationality
to now irdanget. Let us not deSpair, because
their are prcind vindicatlons reserved ; for it,
which will make It as perpetual as time. Let
up 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!

THE EFFEOTS OF VICTORY.
We have no taste for the perukal 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 moat glorious hope and anticipa
tions. Two great facts have been established
by these victories. The first and most impor .
hint of these is, that the melees 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 liven already
demonstrated that a strong Union feeling pre
vails, to the extent even of extending aid and
encouragement to our troops as they la m& ti e
territory where rebellion his been proclaimed
the strongest. It was the boast of the leaders
in this rebellion, when they raised their crim•
son banner, that . .the people of the south were
United—that therwere 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. r succeed. These boasts and as
sertions for a time misled the nations of the
world. They misled, too, a largeportio . of
the people of the north, who were in doubt as
to,the policy" of coercing, an unwilling people
inan allegiance toe government which they had
deliberately and forcibly repudiated. But events
ndw prove that the people this claimed as
having been anxious to escape the federal power
glettitopluania Maitp, teicgrapt),,...fttaito lebruarp 18, 1862
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 he achieved
through the agonizing throbs.and bloody,offer
legs of battle.
The other fact demonstrated in these victo
ries,. is the superiority of northern courage,
fortitude and invincible tact in battle. We
have heard the taunt oft repeated ; that the
insuperlority of the people in the free states was
too great to warrant , any doubt alto the result
of a contest between them and the people of
the south. These assertions have been in
dulged in Br) often, and apparently allowed to
pass unrefutiii, 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 anent 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 m to give way
to the great fact, that the people of the free
states are as proficient in the science of war,
as they are in the other sciences which bless
and ennoble a en
people when-they aresticdessinily,
prosecuted. And while we have .no taste for,
the bloody details of these battles, the facts
which are thus established amid goni) and
carnage, will render unnecessary any future
very rigorous legislation to bold the revolted
states to their allegiance. Tbe same facts will
also change the opinion of foreign gOiertunente
as to our ability for self : government ; while we
Would not be astonished if they Imparted an.
altered tone to the diplomacy, and the disca&•
Ilion of the British Cabinet and Parliament. 'lt
is a terrible, but a necessary and just manner
in which to vindicate the authority and pro
claim the power of the national gdienunent.
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
barraament and actual hardship among a class
9f brave and patriotic men. It seems 'pectin.-
illy 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 recrpits, 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 heen recruited find,orgen
iced in the same time-that it , now . requires to
raise a regiment. Individuals, then,c onid very
readily submit to' a depriiation of pay, be
cause regiments rallied to stiiiaaras iris sin'
gle day. But as the, bmnnests of recruiting
is now conducted, the man who attempts to or
ganize a regiment finds that he halkundertaken
a herculian task , aiiat6t he is fortunate if he
shcCeeds and escapes bankruptcy. The govern
ment of the United States cannot expect its
loyal citizens to conduct this war on their indl
Vidnal ..iPenses, and Yet the regulation 'w.ll4 - cli
insists on a captain or regimental. officers to
=lie a certain number of men befere they 're
4ive any pay, 'seetraltb imply such deeire;
because if a man deserves pay for piimniting
regiment, he should have pay also fcir recruit
ing a squad. Those who are recruiting are oar
t?inly as fully in tbe.service . of the country as
those who are in battle stray before, odic eager
pursuit after, the enemy.
This claim of, pay, on the part of these offi
cers, has a practical meaning and truthfulness
*bock it "that need not be discussed iria lengthy,

We believe that these company and regimental
officers should be paid—paid as are the officers
of the regular army When new reginients are:
to be organized. Zip gOve4inant should' not
permit any man to fight unrequited in this
contest. It should see that all are equally re
'graded and remunerated. Therefore we trust
that the authorities this subject some
attention, and that this itot of justice so long
defaired . to the gallant volunteer offic ers in the
service of the country, will belegalbsed.by such
legislation as will at once extend the necessary
relief. We content iitiiinfitti sug:

posing any plan by which it can be met and
satisfied: That is a matter belonging to the
Legislature orto Congress.
The complete success of the =federal arms al
ready announced, will be irrefuti&ble procit*
the country and theworld, of the justice:of_

prove right, it is a verity that the - 110h is
mighty and *4ll an appoil,*

pealing party is again beaten, his defeat is the
crowning demonstration of the rottenness' of
his mum and the atrocity of his course, I n
telligence, spirit, energy and valor, the South
erner and Northener do not widely differ. Both
have to some extent the same characterlst
kis. As to . wealth,' the'superiority lies in this
iiistance-with` the greater numbers. If the lat
ter are in earnest they , must -conquer, and the
cenquest 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 ' The.y.rflect, with more
seriousness before throwing `their lives, fortune
and honor into the scale of battle;then 'before
dropping their votes into the ballot-box. In
strictest truth, the war is an awful and terrible
canvass,. a franchlse of fire and blood, Our of
which is to come forth, in the stiblimest and
