NATIONAL PECUNIARY AID IN THE
ABOLITION 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 1
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 humar(Acsh. ;;_ln connection
with the expenses the rebellion has already
caused the country and the government, this
proposition contemplates - an - atigsriehtation 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 7
nomical thus to• co-operate with the states
abolishing slaveryi. Our view of the suhjec
is, to extend the aid in the shape of cancelin
the proportion of the tax which must heireaftei
be collected in the rebel slave states, and make
this amount pf serve the Co' oPeration cowl
templated in • the message- of the President's
leaving the slates thus to be sisistedito uolleci
and'nee this tax'.ltnpartlidlyelrairly in the
manner provided for ~ in' this message. •It hi
not verrpossible that this proportion of the-nad .
tional tax can he collected bjr the federal officer s
in the states named; during any time to make
it of use to the government, So that by the
time, thelederal officers could possibly collect
thotax l the country will have recovered from!
.. - .
the ,shocko•and convulsioni of rebellion; it
freakily will' have been replenished .by the
national owner* of prosperity, and this appro 2
priation of the:proportion of the national tai
then in no rrianner What by the nation ef large.!
In'the same connection, another act otiegiela-!
Alen should c.keely follow, and at once take
the shape Of a lair; -notrithstanding . _it bag
been reported on 4ienielk — by a ,committee.; .
We allude to , export duty on cotton: If thel
.governmenf mina pay for the riddance of al,
`wropg,'in the; ,Preation Of:which it laid no in-1
finance or participation ; it should at least insist
op..those whowere-the.eause of the rebellion,.
paying_theirjust Proportion - of itseipense. The
cotton states are 'mainly' responsible for this
' rebellion.: The cotton. Slates engendered the,
difficulty, gave farce. 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 principal source and'
means of meeting the demands on:the national!
•treasury. ' :
The proposition of the Presidentwill 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 dibtate. The level states
are submitting to a' drain in men and money,
never before equallidliftheilimple of any na
tion, but whether they will regantthis propo
sition with "favor, - remains to b-i fisted. The
plan which =we have suggested; provided the
Presidential prorKieltion iriendonted by Congress,
of extending:this:Aid in the shape of wasneel of
the proportion of the tax due by them states,
thus aboliiihing slavery, we consider 'the only
fair way of+. preventing the' burden of such an
expenditure thus contemplated ; from' falling'
immediately on the peopbrof the. loyal statue:
To ask them to purchase the *nth out dad
hands of the cotton states, some' Of theni
maimed by the lash,others led to the verge= of
the griive by age' and aggravated ()hie*, and
allof them useless now to their owner& would
be paying a premium for wrong and making a
precedent of injustice,whickmight possibly take
othershapes hereafter, and constitute a continu
al drairron the treasury and the resources of the
people. As we wrote above ; the whole propo
sition involves an expenditure of money whiph
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 ortAtke
.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 laVor 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
doin rebellion; was only, the purpose in dis
edge of-forcing unconditional abolitionism on
the peophi of the seuth. 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 raShnesi by, prejudice, that the intention of
the federal government is.honorable, and that
,President Lincoln is bonOd to deal in all re
spects with the rebels, as will best hring theni
to a sense of the , might and power of the fed
end authority, and n,just appreciation of the
beneficence and impartiality of :that power, as
long as its adininistration And enforcement re
main in his hands.. ,pt thlispirit we submit
this proposition to the judgment of -our read
ers. The suggestions we have made, are these
only of a momenta reflection, which , after
thought may,.p . ossiffily alter and amend -- but
which we also submit with the proposition of
the President, as calculated - to' be of great ear
vice to the nation. and the great cause ,
freedoni, peapeand proaperity. In one sense,
the •riddance of,tha.. country of - slavery by the
expenditure of a fewniillions of dolling, could'
be oneaper than by the.. shedding of riven' of
blo,od and the loos of thousands of valuable
and gallant men. Let the people Berton:sly
think of •this matter, and at once indicate
their will to their servants.

METHODISM AND THE GO . !
While there are but few exceptions that
class of our citizens who corm* the clergy of
the loyal states, that - refused to give all the aid
iri their power to support the government in its
struggle to put deli* rebellion, there are still
less of those. among the Methodist clergymen 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
iii' the taiqatcitiOf - chaplains, contributing to
the religions welfare of ,thmoldith as he ie et:on
tramting te'the national welfare of his country.
The evidence of these facts - are not merits cone
fined to Methodiata, as we have declared but
extend to the clergy of other denominations,)
who, .with: their prayers and their patriotism,(
give our cause th e moral fort- whi ch will make
it eventually the cause of who love the •
truth and adore justice.
