Vorever float that standard sheet !
Where breathes the foe but falls before us,
With Freedom's soil beneath our feet,
And Freedom's banner streaming o'er us.
Friday Afternoon, March 7,1862,
Joss Baum; the great English reformer,
philanthropist and patriot, declared recently in
the British Parliament, that England bad in
flicted a sting on America, which it would re
quire years to remove, and which would affect
British interests while-the present generation
In the United States has memories to preserve
and pride to resent the injury of the English
government. John Bright is right. We will re•
member the insults and the injuries of the
English ministry, and when the day comes
properly to resent those wrongs, that govern
ment will find the people of these states pre
pared to 'give them battle on the land and the
water, with a will and a vigor animated by a zeal
and a determination, that will lower the create
of the British aristocracy, and force them to
acknowledge that the nation on Mitch they
sought to bring reproach and destruction, is
equal to the duty of its own defence, as well as
the leek of its own preservation. The govern
ment of the United States will never be fully
vindicated, nor will its power elicit the re
spect which it once enjoyed in the estimation
of the people of the world, until it has forced
England to acknowledge its equality, admit
its rights, and respect its destinies. The spirit
and necessity of this will some day be incul
cated in our public schools, as we now incul
cate a knowledge of the alphabet, arithmetic,
syntax and prosody.
THE BILL FOR THE PURCHASE OF COIN, which
became a laNyesterday, provides that the Secre.,
tart' of the Treasury may dispose of any bonds
or notes bearing interest, authorized by law,
for coin, at such rates, and upon such terms,
as he may deem most advantageous to the
public interest, and may issue, under such rules
and regulations as he may prescribe, certificates
of indebtedness, such as are authorized by the
act to authorize the Secretary of the Treasury
to issue certificates of indebtedness to public
creditors, approved March 1, 1862, to such
creditors as may desire to receive the same in
discharge of checks drawn by the disbursing
officers upon sums placed-to their credit on the
books of the treasurer, upon requisitions of the
proper department, as well as in discharge of
audited and settled accounts as provided by said
act. It is further provided that the demand
notes, authorized by the act of July 17, 1861,
and by the act of February 12, 1862, shall be
receivable, and shall be lawful money and a
legal tender, in like manner milt° the same
purposes and to the same extent as the notes
authorized by the act to authorize the issue of
United States notes, and for the redemption
funding thereof, and for funding the floating
debt of the United States, approved the 28th

Tai RBEHLLION has developed no more sad or
melancholy circumstances, than those connect
ed with the services and death of Gen. Zolli
coffer, and the sorrow and orphanage
in which he left his motherless daughters.—
Since the death of Zollicoffer, other results in
connection with his children, have come to
light, which exhibit stilt further, the blighting
effects of rebellion on all classes of the south.
When the rebels evacuated Nashville, they
destroyed the grand wire bridge which spans the
river in that neighborhood, in disregard to the
protest and earnest entreaties of the authori
ties and citizens of that city. In thestock of that
structure, the orphan daughters of Zollicoffer
had invested all they possessed in the world—
the means of their support. They are now beg
gars. Orphaned by the influence and rashness
of rebellion—beggared by the ruthlessness and
barbarity of those who lead on rebellion. How
many more such cases will the history of this
most wicked outrage against Constitutional
liberty and law exhibit ? • •
INFORMATION has reached the Navy Depart

Weston, with a cargo of two hundred and nine

captured vessel sailed from Apalachicola, Flori

money from the Weston will be a handsome
sum ; the shares of each seaman on board the
Daiwa, exclusive of the officers' shares, being
one hundred dollars. Our tars are reaping rich
harvests from these frequent seizures.

short of what it has been for several years past.
However, as there is a "fine chance" of snow

SPECIAL information from Washington creates
the impression that a tax upon cotton will be
agreed to in the House of Representatives, as
an amendment to the tax bill, when that mea

press as rapidly as possible.

NATIONAL PECUNIARY AID IN TEE
A7OLITION OF SLAVERY.
The President yesterday delivered a message
to Congress, in which a resolution was em
bodied, authorizing the federal government to
co-operate with such states as may deem it
just to abolish slavery, by offering them such
pecuniary aid as may be necessary to protect
those from loss who will thus be deprived of
their property in human flesh. In connection
with the expenses the rebellion has already
caused the country and the government, this
'proposition contemplates an augmentation of
the public debt at once immense an incalcula
ble. And yet, perhaps, as a matter of strict
justice and policy, in the end, it may be eco
nomical thus to co-operate with the states
abolishing slavery- Our view of the subject
is, to extend the aid in the shape of canceling
the proportion of the tax which must hereafter
be collected in the rebel slave states, and make
this amount of aid serve the cooperation con
templated in the message of the President,
leaving the states thus to be assisted to collect
and use this tax impartially and fairly in the
manner provided for in this message. It is
not very possible that this proportion of the na
tional tax can be collected,by the federal officers
in the states named, during any time to make
it of nee to the government, BO that by the
time the federal officers could possibly collect
the tax, the country will have recovered from
the shocks and convulsions of rebellion, its
treasury will have been replenished by the
national sources of prosperity, and this appro
priation of the proportion of the national tax
then in no manner be felt by the nation at large.
In the same connection, another act of legisla
tion should closely follow, and at once take
the shape of a law, notwithstanding it has
been reported on adversely by a committee.
We allude to export duty on cotton. If the
government must pay for the riddance of a
wrong, in the creation of which it had no in
thence or participation, it should at least insist
on those who were the cause of the rebellion,
paying their just proportion of its expense. The
cotton states are mainly responsible for this
rebellion. The cotton states engendered the
difficulty, gave force and energy to the strife
by pledging their products to the support of
the war, and therefore, those products should
be directly held as a ptincipal source and
means of mooting the demands on the national
The proposition of the President will attract
great attention among the people of the free
states, who will undoubtedly take positive
grounds either for or against the measure, as
their judgment may dictate. The loyal states
are submitting to a drain in men and money,
never before equalled by the people of any na
tion, but whether they will regard this propo
sition with favor, remains to be tested. The
plan which we have suggested, provided the
Presidential proposition is endorsed by Congress,
of extending this aid in the shape of a cancel of
the proportion of the tax due by these states,
thus abolishing slavery, we consider the only
fair way of preventing the burderi of such an
expenditure thus contemplated, from falling
immediately on the people of the loyal states.
To ask them to purchase the worn out fl Id
hands of the cotton states, some of them
maimed by the lash, others led to the verge of
the grave by age and aggravated disease, and
all of them useless now to their owners, would
be paying a,premium for wrong and making a
precedent of injustice,which might possibly take
other shapes hereafter, and constitute a continu
al drain on the treasury and the resources of the
people. As we wrote above, the whole propo
sition involves an expenditure of money which
will arrest the attention of the people of the
loyal states at once, so that Congress will at
once learn the sentiment of the nation on the
In making this proposition, we have every
confidence in the faith of the President as to
its policy as a war measure, calculated to gain
the favor of many honest people in the rebel
states who have been led to suppose that the
act of the government in waging a war to put
down rebellion, was only the purpose in dis
guise of forcing unconditional abolitionism on
the people of the south. The proposition to
aid this class in abolishing slavery will dispel
this doubt and suspicion, and prove to those
who are not entirely maddened and resolved
on rashness by prejudice, that the intention of
the federal government is honorable, and that
President Lincoln is bound to deal in all re
spects with the rebels, as will best bring them
to a sense of the might and power of the fed
eral authority, and a just appreciation of the
beneficence and impartiality of that power, as
long as its administration and enforcement re
main in his hands. In this spirit we submit
this proposition to the judgment of our read
ers. The suggestions we have made, are those
only of a moment's reflection, which after
thought may possibly alter and amend bat
which we also submit with the proposition of
the President, as calculated to be of great ser
vice to the nation and the great cause of
freedom, peace and prosperity. Ia one sense,
the riddance of the country of slavery by the
expenditure of a few millions of dollire, would
be cheaper than by the shedding of rivers of
blood and the loss of thousands of valuable
and gallant men. Let the people seriously
think of this matter, and at once indicate
their will to their servants.
BISHOP MelLvanne, of Ohio, preached at the

METHODISM AND THE GOVERNMENT.
While there are but few exceptions to that
class of our citizens who compose the clergy of
the loyal states, that refused to give all the aid
in their power to support the government in its
struggle to put down rebellion, there are still
less of those among the Methodist clergym.n of
.the country who have stood aloof from this
contest. Among this peculiar ,branch of the
Christian church, we know many of its preach
ers who are at the head of companies, several
leading regiments, and a large number of them
in the capacity of chaplains, contributing to
the religious welfare of the soldier as he is con
tributing to the national welfare of his country.
The evidence of these facts are not merits con
fined to Methodists, as we have declared, but
extend to the clergy of other denominations,
who, with their prayers and their patriotism,
give our cause the moral foil., which will make
it eventually the cause of all who love the
truth and adore justice.
In reference to the position of the Methodist
clergy on this subject, the following resolutions
passed at the East Baltimore Conference tl the
M..thodist Episcopal church, which assembled
In Baltimore on Wednesday last, give ample
and full assurance as to the patriotism and de
votion of that class of American citzens. We
quote the resolutions in full:.
Wasslse, Since the last annual session of
this body. a fearful rebellion has broken out in
several of the southern states, threatening to
overthrow the most benign government the
world ever saw ; And whereas, The Federal au
thority has been compelled to use the force of
arms to suppress said rrlsellion and to maintain
its ern" supremacy; And whereas, Patriotism is a
Christian virtue, taught in the word of God, and
enjoined upon us by the 23d article of the (W-
I cipline ; therefore,
Resolved, Ist, That as a body of Christian
ministers in Conference a-sembled, we hereby
express our abhorrence of the rebellion now
existing within our borders as being treasonable
in its origin, sanguinary in its progress, and as
tending to retard the advancement of civil lib
erty throughout the world.
Resolved, 2d, That we hereby approve and en
done the present wise and patriotie administration
of the Federal Government in its efforts to de
feat the plans and mrercome the armed resist
ance of the so called Confederate States, with a
view to maintaining and perpetuating the unity
of this Government.
Braised 3d, That in our patriotic_ efforts in
the.past or present to sustain the government
of our country in this, her hour of trial, we are
•lot justly liable to the charge of political teach
ing ; and in the inculcation of loyal principles
and sentiments, we recognize the pulpit and the
press as legitimate instrumentalities.
•'Resolved, 4th, That a copy of the foregoing
preamble and resolutions be transmitted to the
President of the United States, signed by the
President, and countersigned by the Secretary
of the Conference.
These resolutions were discussed with great
warmth and ability, as we can judge from the
proceedings of the Conference, and in their pas
sage, the vote stood, one hundred and thirty two
yeas to fifteen nays. Rev. Henry Slicer refused
to vote, un act which was unnecessary to prOve
his sympathy for the rebel slave-drivers, as he
has always been one of the most noisy and dis
gusting advocatesof the "patriarehial" attributes
of slavery. He should be invited to Fort War
