Chairman People'a State Committee,
ase. W. Hammel.; I Secretaries
Thursday Morning, June 12, . 1862.
We agree with the New York Evening Post
that it is doing the arch•traitors of Charleston
—the cradle of the rebellion—too much honor
to send a fleet and army against them. Such
is their arrogance—such the conceit that they
have of themselves—that they will only be
flattered by the extent of the preparation made
for their reduction. They will boast for all
time to come that it took a large and power
ful armament to compel their surrender. They
will say that they only yielded to an cner
whelming superiority of numbers, and that if
they could have met us ou equal terms their in
vincible valor and chivalric dash would have
proved victorious. We could have wished,kuow
ing the vainglorious character of the people, that
a single vessel only had been sent against their
city. We wish that the Monitor alone, with
some twenty-five or thirty Yankees of the
bluest blood on board, had beeu selected for
the work to be performed. With her invulner
able iron sides she could easily have passed the
fortifications in the night, stifled up to the
wharves of the city, and th-eatened a bombard..
meat in the event of a refusal to surrender.
Charleston, we have no doubt, wonid have
been obliged to succumb, and there would have
been . a grand moral triumph in a conquest ef
fected in, that manner. As these boastful
South Carolinians took ten thousand men to
dislodge a small garrison of seventy half-starved
troops, so we ought to turn the tables upon
them by capturing their entire city, including
the forts,, with a mere handful of sailors.
When' the place is taken—as taken it assur
edly will be—we hope General Anderson will
be placed once more in command of Fort Snna-:
ter—that he will be the man chosen to run up
the American ensign on the very spot where it I
was flowered a year ago—and that the same
slag which .he brought away will be the one
that is waved in triumph in its old place. • It
is enough to conquer the rebels of other states
who have been forced or seduced into the
rebellion, but to the conquest of the very be
ginners of it should be added some degree of
moral humiliation.
is now the debt of the Confederacy. War is an
expensive business. A year ago Mr. Mem
mimger advertised his "advantageous loan" of
ten millions, and the conspirators flattered
themselves that .not half this sum would be
needed. , Bat debt does not trouble Davis ; it
was by his influence, chiefly, that Mississippi
was led to refuse payment of her just debts ;
and he has tried on the same game in his new
sphere of action: It will be remembered that,
to seicare the payment of interest on that
"most advantageous loan," the rebels pledged
themselves to lay an export duty on cotton ;
and that the whole cotton crop was made the
basis for which were issued the millions of Con_
federate treasury notes and bonds which now
flood the south. But, with the coolness of a
practiced swindler, Davis, having pledged the
proceeds of an export duty for the payment of
a debt, next prohibited the export of the arti
cle ; and when he had issued as many treasury
notes as the south would take, he ordered the
destruction of the cotton—which was the only
security for their payment.
Tills debt may be summed up as follows:
Borrowed from banks $50,000,000
State aid, to be reimbursed 45,000,000
Due bills for property seised 65,000,000
Due bills for property destroyed.... 40,000,000
War loans 66,000,000
Treasury notes 100,000,000
Due soldiers 46,000,009
Total $410,000,000
Tux Jeraszsos STAR in a long article in re
ference to Gov. Curtin, says that he deserves
the thanks and the praise of every loyal man
in the land, and that he stands a peer among
the greatest and truest patriots in the land. He
has been, tried in the crucible of that fiery
public opinion from which so few escape un
scathed. Re , has been tested by his country
men. Their verdict is recorded pow in that
confidence and 'approval which constitute the
highest reward the statesman can desire.
Having exhausted their sympathy for the
rebellion, by openly applauding
• the rebels, apd
having used all the argument at - the command
of sophistry to prove that the expenses growing
out of this war should be charged to the people
of the north—having engaged thus for the
traitor cause, and failed, we find-the dough-face
journalists changing their tact, and about to try a
new pretext with whichto deceive and mislead
the people of the loyal states. A few years
ago, the cry was, - raised_that,slavery would
never be extended, because the negro could not I
live in a latitude beyond tliose of the southern
states. The south was his natural home, and
there he would remain until death severed hie I
chains and put an end to his sufferings. Theae
arguments were used to rebut the reasoning
of those who were freely opposing elaveiy, an
opposition, then, too, 'confined to the south.
"We must have the negro," was the plea of
the southern slays driver ; "the south is his
natural home, and to keep him without a state
of bondage would be to endanger the pew of
every community in which the population of
the African might predominate." iduee.was
the special pleading of the southern slate.;
' holder, in answer to the. arguments of the
southern abolitionists, urging the policy of
gradual emancipation for the slaves, with the
colonization of both,the emancipated slave and
the free negro, in some locality distant from
this country, and adapted to the nature and'
pursuits of the race of black men. Sincethese I
plans were announced in the south, and since
southern abolitionism has spread among, the.
intelligent masses of the Sorth;the sentiment
at the south which first justified emancipation
has changed, while • another sentiment at the
north is busy misdirecting the effort to emelt
orate and reduce slavery. Forty years ago,
the southern advocate of slavery declared that
the negrocould not 'exist in any other latitade.
To-day, the northern advocate of that institu
tion claims that emancipation threatens to.
overrun the north with every liberated slave.
Free the slaver, and the raoth will at once
become burdened with his ignorance and idle
ness. These barren assertions may do to star
tle timid people and control the prejudice and
passion which make up the :elements of Modern,
Democracy, but .they have no influence upon
the minds of men resolved
„to view the dis
posal of the African race in a sensible and a
reasonable light. No man, white or black,
ever attempted to escape from freedom. If a
liberated slave seeks the north, to find a region
where he is certain he will be free, it is because,
he fears the slavery from which he was eman
cipated, and the probability that he might again
:be brought within the influence and control'
of its chains and whips. But let the border
•states become free states. Let slavery. jie
'abolished in Maryland, Virginia, Kentucky,
Tennessee and Missouri, and eight out of every
,ten free negroes in the free states will seek
those localities, while not a single emancipated
slave will leave the state in which he was
;freed. There will be nothing to compel hitr
Ito leave ; but every influence will conspire to
!induce him .*to remain. The climate, first,
'which the northern dough-face, the southern
;slave driver, and common sense, teach us is
'adapted best to his health and development.;
.and, second, the attraction and familiarity of
fold scenes,. home and associates. When the
'state becomes free in which.the slave is eman
:cipated, the negro will have nO desire to coma
north. He will not trust himself among the
busier and more exacting scenes of commercial
and mechanical coMpetition, but be glad to
reniain where he belongs, among the tobacci,
potton,.rice and sugar fields of the txmth.
While emancipation by confiscation, for a
time, will flood the north with "contrabands,"
a general emancipation law, .would have an
opposite effect. The plan of setting a man
free, and asking him to remain among-the scenes
of his forteer suffering and oppression, with
Ali the influence of slavery still-prevailing and
threatening every day to reclaim a vic
tim, is simply- ridiculous. An idiot would
ahrink from such an alternative, and the.worst
slave that ever groaned beneath the lash would
find speedy rescue in flight, if freed, or be forced
by the influence of his oppression either to ab
sent himself from its presence, or submit at
14:1C0 to Its rigors. In this view, we ITIUBC re
gard the isolated freeing of the slaves. If
slave states are made free, the danger of the north
being overtun by the freed slave will .never
Occur. Our. wiley political foes understand
this fact too well, not to oppose general eman
cipation.' They predict an influx of emanci
pated slaves, in order to startle the north from
its reason, and thus create au influence which
can be used, when its passion is aroused, in
favor of slavery. But if emancipation, snob
emancipation as will make free all the border
states, be recognised as the policy of the goy
et:on:tent, the negro population north and south
will seek, remain and become attached to these
states, as their after rightful homes, made
stich by the arguments of northern dough
faces and southemnbolitionists, that the south
was the natural locality for the negro, both on
aocount of climate and soil.
!Since the above article was written, we no
ticed the following among yesterday's special
despatches from Washington. It has a distinct
bearing upon the subject, and we submit it,
without a word, for the consideration of our
readers, reserving such comments as we may
have to make, until we can learn more of the
particulars of this important propositi on:
:The contraband question has suddenly taken
a new phase—no less than a practical scheme
of colouissation upon Danish territory. The
Judiciary Committee of the House this morn
ing received from the State Department copies
of an interesting correspondence which has just
passed between Secretary Seward and the Da:
nish Minister in relation to the contrabands.
The Danish government has made'a foraml
proposition, through its minister here, to'take
all thr negroes woo have , escaped from their
masters and remove them to St. Croix, free of
charge. It then proposes to put them under
an apprenticeship of three yearg, permitting
them to receive regular wages. At the expira
tion of their apprenticeship it proposes to free
them unconditionally.

With the dough-face sympathisers, the de
fiktoe and protection of slavery, is the enforce
tient and preservation of constitutional law.
All other interest*-the welfare of the white
man and the elevation of free labor—sink into
insignificance, when the political and social
claims of slavery are involved, and then the
issue becomes one of life and death in the de
fence of that institution. Our northern dough

8 miles beyond Harrisonburg, Va., June 8. 1,
Gen. Premeat has overtaken the enemy, of
whom he has been In putenit for a week, and
has forced him to fight, and dtiven him; with
heavy loss,, from his chosen_ position. Be left
Harrisonburg this morning at 6 o'clock, and
advanced in pursuit of Jackson by the read
leading to Port Itepublie. the left of the
turnpike to Stanton, seven miles beyond liar.
risonburg, the advanced guard discovered the
enemy posted in the 'woods, to the left Ind
front, apparently in force. Artillery was sent
to the front and commenced shelling, without
eliciting any reply. •
Jackson having at last been, forced to make a
stand with his whole army, had completely
masked his position in the woods, and various
skirmishers and cavalry were sent forward.---. 1
The whole column came rapidly up, and a line
of battle, extending nearly two miles, -was'
promptly formed undeStle direction of Col.'
Albert, chief of the staff. Before it was com
pleted, Gen. Stahl with the. Garibaldi Guards,
became engaged with the enemy on the extreme
right, and forced him to fall fack.
At half oast 12 o'clock a general adirance
was ordered, and the whole line moved for
ward. Gen. Milroy had the centre, General
Schenck the right, and Gen Stahl, with ail his
brigade except the Garibaldi Guards, the front.
Gen. Blanker,' Gen. Bohlen, and Colonel Stela
weickher's brigades composed the reteuve.
The line moved down the slopes of three:
hills into the valley, and up the opposite as
cents, which at the summits were manned with
woods. In these Woods, and in the belts and
heavy timber beyond, t he; enemy were•posted.
General Stahl, On tie left, was first engaged.
General Milroy and General Schenck found the
enemy soon after, and the battle almost imme
diately became general:
General Stahl, after -Seriviures battery had
shelled the rebel position, advanced the Bth
and 45th the.
.York regimenta through the
woods into an open fimd, on the other side of
which the enemy's, right wing was concealed
In the woods. The Bth advanced gallantly
under a heavy.ire, but being so long lineup
ported by the 45th, and largely outnumbered
were finally forced to retire. Cell. Witstahali
wag severely wounded, and the whole regiment
badly cut up, losing not lees than 800, more
than half of its strength. 'The enemy's par.
suit was checked by the artillery. General
Stahl finally withdrew his brigade to a strong
position, repulsing a flank movement and hold
ing hie wing firmly.
Gen. Milroy advanced his centre, the artil
lery fire coropellieg the enemy to give ground.
Gen._ Schenck, on the •right,• > twice drove
the rebels who attempted to turn his position.
Alongthe whole line our artillery, under
Colonel Pflson's direction, was served with
great vigor end precision, and our final success
was largely due to rte effect,
The enemy Buttered most severely. One
repel regiment lost two-thirds of its number
in an attempt to capture Wildrich's Battery,
which cut them to pieces with canister it fifty
paces. The rebel, batteries were repeatedly
silenced and forced to abandon their positions.
Col. Clusrid., with his weak brigade took
and held the centre of the enemy's p osition,
and has his encampment there toAlight.
Our forces were outnumbered at ail tants,
but have occupied the rebel line, and forced
them to retreat.
The lees is heavy on both sides, the enemy
suffering especially from our artillery.
The Garibaldi Guards lost nearly 200, the
25th Ohio 00. The total loss is estimated at
from GOO to 800 killed, wounded and missing.

Bertuioun, June 11
The rebels fought wholly under cover,'while
our troops were forced to advance through open .
fields. The enemy's advantagtii of position,
and numbers were counterbalanced . by 9tautaal
Eremont's skilful handling of his troops and
the coolness and determination with which he
pressed his success.
The fighrwas furious for three hours, and
continued till nearly dark.
Our army sleeps on the field of battle.
The Battle at 'Union Church. .
Came ama PORT RIPUBLIO, Jane 8, 9 r. x.
At the lion. Edwin At. Stanton Steretary of War :
The army left Harrisonburg at six this morn
ing, and at half past eight ray advance engaged
the rebels about seven miles from that place,
Union Church. The enemy was very advan
tageously posted in the timber, having chosen
his own peaition, forming a smaller circle than
oar own, and with his troops formed in masses.
It consisted, undoubtedly, of Jackson's en
tire force. The battle began with heavy firing
at 11 o'clock, and lasted With great obstinacy
and violence until 4in the afternoon. Some
skirmishing and artillery firing continued from
that-time until dark. Our troops fought oc
casionally under the murderous fire of greatly
superior numbers, the hottest of the small arm
fire being on the left wing, which was held by
General Stahl's brigade, consisting of five regi
Bayonet and caniater shot were used freely
with great effect by'itiur men.
The lota on both sides is very great, and OMB
is very heavy among the officers. A. full ,re
port of those who distinguished themselves
will be made without partiality.
I desire to say that both officers and men
behaved with splendid gallantry, and that the
service of the artillery wee especially admira
ble. -
We are encamped on the field of battle,
which may be renewed at anxmoment.
