Forever float that standard sheet
Where breathes the foe but falls before us,
With Freedom's soil beneath oar feet,
And Freedom's banner streaming o'er us.
Thursday Afternoon, April 24,1862,
one which will be the most disastrous to the
slave states, is that which will operate on free
labor. Heretofore, the position of a white la
boring man in a slave state, was embarrassing
and equivocal, and hereafter this will be in
creased by the stagnation and utter destruction
of his means of support. The white laboring
men of the south will be compelled to emigrate
from these states to seek homes and employment
where they can be more readily had and more
securely retained. Many of the free states
of the west are populated by emigrants
from the slave states. In Indiana whole
counties are composed of Kentuckians and
their children, poor non-slaveholders, who
fled from the stagnation imposed on free labor
by the presence of slaves. Every eastern slave
state has been drained by these filtrations of
men and women wearied of the bitter straggle
with poverty and ignorance, and anxious to se
cure for their children the benefits of the supe
rior civilization of a free society. The departure
of this labor will tend further to the embarrass
ment of slave labor and hurry on the frightful
degeneration of the slave. However the white
man was contaminated by a contact with the
institution of slavery, however it brutalizes those
who control slaves, and corrupts others who
depend upon that labor for support, it is never
theless a fact, that the presence of the white
laboring man in the south, has had a tendency
to strengthen slavery. It contributed by the
strength of the institution by diligent example
to the slave ; and in other instances it acted as
an influence of intimidation to any unruly spirit
that dared to show itself in opposition to the
will of the overseer. When all these are forced
from the south by the emigration of the white
laborer, capital in slavery will not be so valu
able, neither will living• In the south be so
Instead of this emigration of white labor from
the south, and instead of purchasing slave pro
perty, to cast it free on the cold sympathies and
stern prejudices of the north, why should this
government not offer to purchase the estates of
these slavers, and Induce them to leave the
south, for such localities in which they could
enjoy the patriarchial pleasures and personal
pride derived from owning the bodies and labor
of men and women. We shall not, like many of
the despotic governments of Europe, interpose
difficulties in the way. We shall not require
passports or demand of the young man a term
of military service before ho leaves the govern
ment which no, longer satisfies him. Go in
peace ; take your goods with you ; seek more
congenial climes—sail to Cuba, or Brazil, if you
will, where you will find even slavery existing
to please you ; or, if you would revel in that
species of barbarism, the whole continent of
Africa is open to you, excepting only Sierra
Leone and Liberia. Is it unreasonable counsel,
this? Suppose the case reversed. Suppose that
of our thirty millions twenty-eight were for
Davis and slavery, and two millions for the
Union, the Constitution and the enforcement of
the laws, would not the same advice be offered
to the minority—even though they were morally
right I And justly, we think. It is necessary
to have a government under which the peace,
law and order are supreme. Those who are
strong must maintain these ; those who are
weak must succumb ; must obey while they re
main ; must emigrate when they can or will no
longer obey.
TREASURY NOTES are subject to a dangerous
mutilation by a society of rogues whose plan is
to tear off the corners and appropriate pieces
from them for the purpose of defrauding the
Treasury by making up an entire bill out of the
detached pieces, has grown so common that the
Treasury Department has resolved not to re
deem any bill at par unless it is whole, and to
deduct one dollar for every tenth part of a note
torn off, and in that proportion for larger
amounts removed. The best way to deal with
these mutilated Treasury Notes is, for the pub
lic to refuse to take them ; just as they refuse
to take clipped and punched coin. By refusing
to take them, the loss will fall upon the rogues
who originated the practice.
Ws nap the following paragraph in the spe
cial Washington telegraphic dispatches to the
Press of to day:
General Cameron and the Boker Contract.—lt ap
pears that the great order given to Boker & Co.,
of New York, for 100,000 muskets at $lB each,
and 18,000 sabres at $7 50 each, for which Gen.
Cameron has been censured in the report of
Mr. bolt, of the Contract Commission, was
given by President Lincoln himself. General
Camsfon is now in this city, and it is avid that
he intends to make a statement on the subject.
Now that the capital of the nation stands on
free soil, men find themselves asking why the
act of emancipation was not promulgated years
ago?—Philadelphia Press.
History answers the question. Because the
slave driving Democracy of the south, with
their cringing dough-face allies of the north,
during all those years, either ruled in the
Presidency or tyrannized in Congress.
Tha Dsmocasric ' , Ka used once to have a
policy that pertained to the great interest of
the country, relating to banks, currency, inter
nal improvements, &c; but its sole stock in
trade is now its hatred to the negro, and the
Attempt to make those who oppose them, po
litically odious by declaring such opponents to
have inordinate love for the negro.
The following. from the Louisville Democrat
but echoes the feelings of the messes of this
country. Shall the guilty leaders of this cause
less and wicked rebellion go unpunished ?
They, and they alone have brought upon us a
war, the like of which has never before been
known, desolating thousands of happy homes,
and making almost every house in the land a
house of mourning and despair. There must
be some hanging done for this greatest of all
crimes, and if the government does not intend
to execute the leadepp that may fall into their
hands it had better at once have all the prisons
of the country emptied of the smaller crim
There Is a class at the North toward whom
the authorities are, in the opinion of many,
acting too mildly. While theliet of killed and
wounded is bringing tears of anguish to the
eyes of mothers, fathers and wives of some of
our truest soldiers, this class hang upon the
street corners and exult at the result. They
belong to the class that have never heard of a
victorious achievement of the Federal arms,
and who now assert that the late glorious but
dearly bought victory of Gens. Grant and Buell
was a disastrous defeat. It is well for such men
that there is no punishment in this country for
opinion's sake.
The Democrat says:
We cannot look over the list of killed and
wounded without holding these leaders respon
sible. There is one fixed, resolute determination
in the hearts of the people of this State that
there must be some hanging done for this war.
The men who have taken up arms may. possibly
be pardoned, but those with instigated them to
it ought never to be forgiven. They should
expiate their crimes by the utmost limit
of the law. The blood of our citizens is crying
aloud from the ground for vengeance; the lives
of our citizens are appealing piteously to the
government for protection. Mercy to such men
is murder to the rest of mankind. A wreckless,
characterless, wicked war is brought on and
carried on at the sacrifice of blood and treasure,
and the leaders are 'to escape with impunity !
It cannot be, and ought not to be. It the re
bellion is right, these men are free of blame and
deserve commendation. If it is wrong, they
rightfully deserve to die and must die. They
themselves took the responsibility, and must
take the consequences.
There are too many homes desolate, too
many mothers and sisters mourning for their
murdered kinsfolk, for this awful crime to be
passed off in a polite palaver and chivalrous
turning loose of the tiger among children.
Jeff. Davis may transfer his property to Cuba,
and himself also, to escape, but no matter
where he goes, it is the duty of the government
to follow him up with studied resolution over
the whole world.
We repeat, the entire country, with the ex
ception of the rebel sympathizers we have re
ferred to, respond awn to this.
The people of Pennsylvania must not forget
that we have fifty thousand soldiers before
Yorktown. Fifty thousand men, and all from
Pennsylvania, having their relations and their
affections in every circle. Men who were not
purchased or cajoled into the army—men who
voluntarily left their homes, sacrificing business
and pleasure, that they might contribute to the
success of the general cause. Thus the father
left the little ones to the. charge and support
of the mother—the elder brother turned from
the furrow in the field, hastening to the fight,
while one younger took up the labor at home,
and went on with the work of production.
Fifty Thousand Men! All from Pennsylvania.
There is something grand and glorious in this
fact, and something too that should awaken
the energy of every men in the state, that we
may be prepared for the issue of that fight.
For every man that falls there is another ready
to take his place. We must prepare our homes
for the reception of the wounded—and we
must prepare our devotion for any bereavement
that is likely to follow the issue of the impend
ing fight at Yorktown. Pennsylvania has more
than a national existence and reputation at
stake in this conteet. She has immortality to
achieve. That must be won at Yorktown.
resolution yesterday to inquire into the truth
of a statement with reference to the drunken
ness of a certain military officer. The outside
allegation on this subject is to the effect that
Gen. W. F. Smith, in the army before York
town, exhibited himself drunk in the face of
the enemy. The direct charge is certainly
grave so far as the individual officer is con
cerned, and very humiliating so far as it con
cerns the dignity and the efficiency of the ser
vice. But it is strange that the discovery has
jest been made, that military officers of high
and low rank are fearfullyaddicted to the use of
liquor. It is strange that this discovery should
just have been made in the social and official
circles of Washington city, into the inner re
cesses of which men can only pass on their
powers of libation. Men have been confirmed
to commands in the army who were notorious
drunkards—who were intoxicated when they
were nominated—intoxicated when they were
confirmed—and ever since, In the face of their
own men as well as the face of the enemy, have
continued their intoxication, a disgrace to the
country and a danger to the service. We know
that this is true. There is not a man who reads
this paragraph, and who has passed the last
year in this city, that will refuse to confirm
the fact. Officers of the army, with those ex
ceptions who alone maintain its dignity and
discipline, claim the swilling of liquor as one of
their peculiar privileges. Many of them would
rather forgo promotion than surrender this
privilege, at least, the freedom with which
they indulge in this respect seems to warrant
such a suspicion.
We trust that the lagniry to be instituted by
the resolution referred to, will resnltin the im
mediate dismissal of the officer charged with
drunkenness, if he be proved guilty, It is time
that an example was made, and it is better that
humiliation commence in the highest grade,
where self-respect should moat prevail.
Tin Democrat= leaders complain that they
are charged with disloyalty. How could it be
otherwise when these men affiliate with Val
landigham and accept his leadership ? They
Cannot expect to sustain men who refuse to
vote men and money for the war, and yet be
considered loyal and patriotic.

Nail Letting of the' Western Routes.
________ S (I)
At noon to-day was commenced the an
nouncement of the decisions on the proposals
for conveying the mails on the Pacific coast,
and in the West and North-west, &c.
Large numbers of bidders are in attendance
at the Postoffice Department. '
The proposals for the Pacific are very much
higher than formerly. Those for Kentucky
and Missouri have considerably advanced,
owing, doubtless to the military disturbances
in those States, while in Illinois, Indiana and
other States, the rates are lower.
In all, the number of routes is about twenty
five thousand, averaging ten bids for each.
The sum total of the offers for the entire let
ting is about equal to that made years ago for
the same service.
• A French war steamer arrived off the Wash
ington Navy yard this morning, haying on
board M. Mercier, French Minister, who has
returned irom his visit to Richmond.
A change in the Navy Department has been
positively determined upon. The President is
waiting only to fix upon the individual who ie
to fill the place of Secretary of the Navy. Gen
eral Banks, Judge Davis, of Illinois, and Gov
ernor Sprague, of Rhode Island, are each
strongly urged for this distinction ; but the se
lection has not yet been made.
From Fortress Monroe
and Newbern.
The Rebels Repulsed with Con
siderable Loss.
The Old f'oint boat has arrived, but brings
no news of importance from Fortress Monroe
or Yorktown.
Col. Summers and Lieut. Carnes came up this
morning in the Old Point boat, having arrived
there about an hour before the boat left, in the
steamer Cossack, from Newham. They report
that a fight occurred on Tuesday of last week,
near the canal locks at Elizabeth City, between
Col. Hawkins' Eighteenth ands force of rebels.
The latter were repulsed with considerable
loss. Our loss was estimated at BO killed and
wounded. Col. Hawkins was wounded in the
right breast and his adjutant killed.
This fight is said to have taken place on
Tuesday, but it is no doubt the one alluded to
in the rebel papers.
Reported Abandonment of Forts
Jackson and St. Philip.
The Havana Dairio states that persons ar
rived there from New Orleans report that the
rebel defences have been much exaagerated ;
that Forts Jackson end St. Phillip have been
abandoned and the cannon taken away, and
that there is nothing to prevent the United
States fleet from sailing directly to New Orleans.
The Diario does not vouch for the truth of these

XXXVIIth Congress--First Session.
WestimaxoN, April 24
A communication was received from the
War Department, transmitting copies of con
tracts made by that department for 1861
Mr. Gams, (lowa,) presented 420 petitions
from beer and malt liquor manufacturers, ask
ing a reduction in the proposed tax on beer and
malt liquors.
Mr. PoMsuor, (San.,) presented similar pe
Mr. Powatx, (Ky.,) moved to take up the
resolution offered by him concerning the ar
reests of citizens of Kentucky, Ste.
Mr. SVIINIR, (Mass.,) opposed taking up the
resolution as inexpedient at this time.
Mr. Powsu did not see why the Senator
should make any opposition. It was simply
asking how many citizens of a free State had
been dragged from their homes without law,
and calling on the tyrants and usurpers, to
know where they are and what are their names.
These were free white men. If they had been
negroes, the Senator from Massachusetts would
have made no opposition, but he ever is eter
nally prating &boat the wrongs of the negro.—
But white men have some rights, and he wanted
the Secretary to tell tri why and wherefor these
men had been thus unlawfully dragged to prison
without charge or crime.
Mr. SUMMER (Mass.) said the Senator from
Kentucky had made an inflamed speech, and
called a high officer of the government a ty
rant and usurper. It was evident that if the
resolution was taken up the whole question
must be gone into. If the Secretary of War
was a tyrant and usurper, there were men ar
rested who were traitors.
Mr. Powzrz, (in his seat.) "Who are they?
Name them I"
Mr. SUMNER continued arguing that it wee
not best to go into an inquiry at present.
Mr. PowaLL said that some of the men who
were arrested were as loyal as the Senator from
Massachusetts. He defied the Senator to point
out any law by which the Secretary of State
can carry oft the citizens of Kentucky and im
prison them in the forts of Massachusetts and
New York.
The bill for the recognition of Hayti and
Liberia being the special order of the day was
taken up.
Mr. DATA (Ky.,) moved a substitute, au
thorizing the President to appoint a consul to
Literia and a consul general to Hayti, with
power to negotiate treaties, &c.
Owing to the protracted ill health of Mr.
Bailey, (Mass.,) he was excused from service on
the Committee on Territories.
Mr. VALLANDIOIIAX, (Ohio,) offered a resolu
tion r. questing the President to transmit to
the House, if not incompatible with public in
terests, copies of such correspondence between
the French and U. S. Governments as may
have beenreceived within the last two months,
relative to the present troubles in America.—
Referred to the Committee on Foreign Affairs.
Mr. &mama, (Mine.,) from the Committee
on Indian Affairs, reported a bill authorizing a
treaty to be made with the Indians In Utah,
with the view of purchasing their lands, and a
bill authorizing the authorities with the Nava
joes and New Mexico, defining their limits and
extinguishing their titles to lands outside of the
United States. Referred to the committee of
the whole on the state of the union.
Mr. Feerrox, (N. Y.,) introduced a bill to set
tle the accounts of New York for advances made
by that State during the war with Great Britain
and for other purposes. Referred to the Com
mittee on Claims.
The House resumed the consideration of the
confiscation bill from yesterday.
Mr. LOYEJOT said that while the goverment
is engaged in a serious war to put down the
rebellion, it was seen that this unnatural and
paricidal insurrection has sympathizers and
advocates on this floor. Those who defend
slavery are the defenders of the rebellion, lor
slavery and rebellion are synonymous. They
are unchangeable terms. The arch-fiend Sent
forth with treason marked on his brow is re
presented by the great British poet as roaming
over the world exclaiming "Ye miserable,
which way shall I fly? Whereer I fly is hell
—myself and hell." it is precisely the same
with his progeny arid first-born, namely—the
sestepa of American slavery.
Wherever slavery is there is rebellion. It is
itself rebellion, its cornerstone, pillars and sup
port. He took the position that either slavery
or the republic must perish. He would tell the
gentlemen from Kentucky, (Mr. CIIITTINDIN3
and all other advocates and defenders of the
system, and those who cry themselves hoarse
in attempting to throw the protection of the
Constitution around this destroyer of the repub
lic that there is no city of refuge. Like an infer
nal assassin it has its knife down and is en
deavoring to drive into the heart of the repub
lic. We are bound to strike the monster, arid
gentlemen need not cry out the Constitution
for its defence. It shall, be said, be slain in
the name of my country and my God. U
denied, that slavery had any guarantee or r,ft'
cognition in the Constitution. He argued that
it was their right and duty to destroy slavery
because slavery is destroying, or will destroy
the republic. He was in favor of a restora
tion of the Union with the right to stand
on American soil anywhere and proclaim
his sentiments. He wanted to stand any
where on American soil without the en
forcement of despotism to bold hie tongue.
He wanted to speak in South Carolina,Georgia,
Mississippi and Louisiana without the threat of
being lynched or served with a coat of tar and
feathers. The gintleman from Kentucky
(Mr. Crittenden) yesterday asked what
would the four millions of slaves do if turn
ed loose. Turned loose! this term was used
as if the slaves were wild beasts. Now he had
this to say : at present he would let them alone
to take care of themselves,- which they were
abundantly able to do. Slavebolders had bet
ter turn their attention to another point, viz:
What will they do when they cease to live on
the unrequited sweat and toil of the slaves. He
denied that he and his friends want to make
this an anti-slavery war; but they believed
that the only way to put down rebellion and
restore peace and union was to destroy slavery.
