WILL THE REBE4St EMANCIPATE?
Boma weeks, ago, a report came by way of
Kentucky that Jeff Davis and his catrinet were
seriously considering the project. of emancipa ,
ting the slaves of the confederacy, order to
mecums recognition from EuroPean poWers.
The Kentucky papers continue to repeat the,
statement as if they believed it, and they now
sty further that the plan of the rebel leaders
is to employ the slaves 'in the war, Promising
them their liber i y at its close; and they add that
the only consideration that prevents the adop
tion of this policy is the fear that the southern
people will rebel against it. What basis of
tru.h there may I.e tor these reports it is ich
possible to say. They may be used 'by "Ken-'
tucky Unionists in order to reconcile Moir own
slaveholders to President Lincoln's emancipa
tion policy, on the presumption that abolition
will eventually come through rebel leaders, if
it does not come from the federal government,
and that it is better to have abolition in the
Union than outside of it.
An , l there is, remarks the Springfield Re
publican, pertinence and force in this view of the
matter. Whether Jeff Davis is already think
ing of emancipation as a last resort or not,
when all other means fail, and the prospects of
his experiment become as desperate as they can
be, it is evident enough that the measure is
one that would naturally occur to him. Indeed
we consider it not improbable that President
Lincoln anticipated and Lit Wilted the project by
his own proclamation of emancipation. It was
hinted at the time that the President had in
formation of the intenti,,n of Jeff Davis to get
ahead of him in this measure and so secure the
advantages of the moral position before the•
world This may not have been strictly true,
but it is well known that the - European powers
—France very distinctly—have ;intimated to
th , agents of the confederacy that the promise
of the future and gradual abolition of slaveiy
would du more than anything else to further
their cause abroad, and thut without it indeed
they could not hope fur any material assistance.
It is objected that it would be absurd to sup
pose that the rebels, after having seceded and
made war for the avowed object of stmigthen
ing slavery and making it the basis of 'their
new government, should voluntarily 'destroy
the veiy institution fcr which they are fighting.
But the prime object of the rebel leaders now
is their own salvation, which can only be made
sure by success, and though they may not
willingly destroy slavery, they, will do that or
anything else rather than fail. :If emancipation
should appear to Jeff Davis to be the lagt and
only means of insuring the EiTICCep3: of the rebel
lion he would declare the iootheri . .shives, free
to-morrow. There can be no doubt iof that.
As to the use of the slaves in the war, we may
be sure the rebels will have no scrUples on tkat
subject, it they think they can make soldiers of
them. And the negroes themselves wouldhave
no choice of course as to which side they fight
for, if so be they have the rsliiitile ARBnrance of
freedom as their reward That they would add
much to the strength of the rebellion, as a
fighting force, we do not believe ; they are in
valu rble to it , s.a;ptudueing iOrcP# 1?46 the
rebel leatitirs will trot hesitate to rule 'them' is•
soldiers to any available extant, more especially
as they have now nearly exhausted their white
reserves. The rebel papers give' many indita
tidos of alarm at•the new andforrnidtible armies
marling into their territory. They acknow
ledge that the crisis of theft 'PIA upon
them. It the leaders at RichmOnd take the
same view'of affairs, they may be ready for any
desperate measure, and there is,nothingincred-_
ible in the stiggestion that 'their may eiianci•
pate and arm the negroes in 'the last resort.
If there should prove to be anything in these
conjectures, it may before long be evident to
us all that President Lincoln's emancipation
proclamation was not issued a day too soon.
But if, as we have often been told, the slaves
of the South have a pi ivate system of informa
tion and obtain gt neral ideas of what is going
on, they know by this time that they can be
free by getting within the lines of our armies,
and that they will all be legally free on New
Year's day. Any promise of liberty now on
condition of their fighting for Jeff Davis will
be likely to find their minds pre-occupied.
They have &tag looked fur deliverance from
the Yankees, and it will not be very easy for
the rebels to persuade them that their long
time oppressors are their ie.d friends and will
do better by them than " the abolitionists "
as the rebel leaders, by suggestion of Beaure
gard, now call the Union armies, not consider;
ing what assurance they are thus giving to the
slaves. If Jeff DAVIS thinks he can beat Presi
dent Lincoln at the sunaticipation game, let
him try it. Nobody will object but his own
Ws name vur to see the statement in a single
Democratic journal that Gen. Cass has written
a letter to the President, conveying his fullest
approval of the removal of Gen. McClellan.
Yet such is the fact. The veteran western
statesman eaves es himself as cordi4ly satis
fied with that removal, because the interests of
the Union, the government and freedom de
manded the change.
11 Is suocmariro by an officer of the army that
if the mmey which is appropriated for the
purcbase of fancy swords, sashes and belts for
favorite officers in the army and navy, was mitt('
to procure cork legs and arms for disabled sol
diers and seamen, greater good and mote glory
would be done by and gained for the doionl. -
DEATH OF A BALTIMORE LADY.
A lovely and accomplished daughter of Gen.
Charles Howard, one of the distinguished chi
' zens of Baltimore, died recently. Her father,
who was one of the Baltimore Police Commis
sioners during the 19th of April mob, and was
subsequently sent a state prisoner to Fort War
ren, wherehe has been incarcerated for eighteen
months, by special permission, got leave to go
home temporarily, arriving in time only to see
his daughter die. Her brother, Frank Howard,
Bsq., who was editor of a paper published in
Baltimore, called the Exchange, was also sent to
Fort Warren, more thane year ago, on the
charge of treason He could not obtain per
mission to go home, and his sister goes to the
grave unseen by him.—Philadelphia Evening
The object of the Journal in printing this
paragraph is to show, if possible, a degree of
rigor on the , part of the government, amount
ing to tyranny. In this business the Journal'
has been laboring for the cause of Jeff Davis
,with more zeal, more lies, more absolute deter-
Mination to bring ruin on the Union, than the
;Richmond Enquirer, which is esteemed the special
organ of the traitor chief. 'the Howarth al
luded to in the above paragraph , wore known
:to be active, persistent and unyielding traitors.
They Were known to be engaged in giving aid
:and comfort to the rebels. They had been
detected-on more than one occasion us spies,
and now this false sympathy is sought to be
.created for them because they did not have the
pleasure of ministering at the death bed of
a daughter and a sister, who 4 , 118 doubt
lees of the type of she traitors who have so long
disgraced their sex in the city of Baltimore.
The Howards are of a class who assisted in
bringing about this rebellion, and thus involv
ing the government in a bloody war for its own
preservation. How many sisters of loyal men
have died, whose brothers could not come
home to minister at their beds, the Journal does
not attempt to enumerate, nur is it likely that
it caret The brothers of loyal women are kept
from home by' the stern necessities of the war
The wives of loyal men can sicken and pine
away and die, while their husbands are fighting
to crush out such traitors as the Howard& "The
Mothers of our bravest boys can weep their eyes
out for their sons absent in the bloody fray.
What are these to a Baltimore aristocrat's
daughter. What are these to a she traitor dy
ing in rage because her efforts of treason have
been thwarted, and her traitor father and
brother only sent half Way to the gallows which
they deserve? Such men as the inwards have
forced these loyal brothers to absent themselves,
but these facts are not sufficient to arrest the at
tention or arouse the pity of such semi-secession
sheets as the Evening Journal.:: Nothing but the
wrongs of a traitor or the hope of casting dis
grace on the national government, can prompt
such journals to speak out, and in this particu
lar the Philadelphia Evening Journal has been one
of the most outspoken organs of treason that
has yet disgraced or insulted the patriotism of
the people of a free city.
INTERVENTION still seems to trouble the dreams
of those who really would have such a disposi
tion on the part of Europe enforced, as the reali
zation of all their hopes. We are free to express
the opinion, however, that the south has much
better reason to hope for eff.ctive interference
on thiaxide of the ocean, than from the other.
The Democracy of the
, north of the Seymour
end Patriot and Union stripe, • are certainly quite
as favorably disposed towards her as any sym:
pathizers she may have across the water, and
probably much more ready to render her any
assistance in their power, besides being in a po
gluon to do her considerable service. They will
take good care not to draw the sword in her
behalf, but may nevertheless be highly usAul
in seriously annoyingter adversary, by sowing
distrust and dissensions in the minds of the
masses of the northern people.' This Is the
hope and this the labor of the Democratic lead'
eis. It is what they battled for at the last
election. It is what they remained at home to
accomplish. Let us then,. watch the sympa
thizers with treason hi
. 'pur urn midst, - moie
narrowly than we watch those across the waters.
Northern doughfacelsm, se it is developed by
Dentociatic influence, is more likely to breed
intervention hi behalf of the south, than any
intrigue in which foreign courts may engage,

General Patrick, Provost Marshal General of
the army, this morning crossed the river to
Fredericksburg,under a flag of truce, conveying
to the civil authorities of that city the follow
ing letter demanding its surrender :
OEN. SUMNER TO THE AUTHORITIES OF FREDERIOKS-
HEADQUARTERS ARMY Or THIN POTOMAO,
To the Mayor and Common Council of Fredericksburg :
GENTLEMEN :—Under cover of the houses of
your city , shots have been fired upon the troops
of my command. Your mills and manufacto
ries are furnishing provisions and the material
for clothing for armed bodies in rebellion
against, the Government of the United States.
Your railroads and other means of transporta
tion are removing supplies to the depots of such
This condition of things must terminate,
and, by direction of General Burnside, I ac
cordingly demand the surrender of the city into
my hands, as the representative of the Govern
ment of the 'United States, on or before live
o'clock this afternoon.
Failing in an affirmative reply to this demand
by the hour indicated, sixteen bouts will be
permitted to elapse, for the removal from the
city of the women and children, the sick and
wounded, the aged, Ste., which period having
expired, I shall proceed to shell the town.
Upon obtaining possessiun of the city, every
means will be taken to preserve order, and se
cure the operation of the laws and policy of the
United States Government.
On his arrival on the opposite side of the
river, Gen. Patrick was conveyed to the guard
house by the military, where he was detained
until the reply was made.
In the meantime, his communication was
conveyed to Gen. Longstreet whose troops are
encamped a short distance outside of the city.
To the demand made upon the civil authori
ties, the Mayor of Frederksburg smarm answer,
which was evidently written at the dictation of
Gen. Longstreet , to the effect that the com
plaints should be remedied as far as the firing
on our pickets and furnishing supplies and ma
terial to the Confederate army was concerned
Also, that the rebels would dispute the occupa
tion of the city by the Government forces. The
Mayor complained of the short space of time
allowed for the removal of the women and chil
dren and sick soldiers.
The proposition to afford more time (or this
purpose is now under consideration.
Permission has been given to the citizens to
run one train from the city, but only for the
conveyance of women and children.

shows that he had rented a house in Winches

FOR THE HAIR.
AHANDSOME HEAD OF HAIR is a crown
of glory. With proper care and culture
it will last as a protection to the head as long
as the nails do to the fingers, or the eyelashes
to the eyes. STERLING'S AMBROSIA is the only
article yet discovered that will bring about the
desired results. It is a preparation the result
of science and experiment ; the science point
ing out what was needed, and experiment find
ing the required properties in certain roots, barks,
and herbs. It has consumed a long time in its
preparation, has been tested by persons of most
undoubted reliability in this city, and is by them
pronounced perfect, and the only satisfactory
article, and is now offered to the public. The
proprietors, determined to give it the most
thorough tests, practical and chemical, and now
certain that it will make the hair grow luxuri
antly uu Dald Hoado, Prarimiting 4 4rayaelita and
Baldness, Reinvigorating and Beautifying the
Hair, rendering it soft and glossy.
Da. STERLIAG'S AXBROSIA. is a stimulating,
oily extract of roots, barks, and herbs, and,
aside from its neatness, permanency, and gloss,
it is medically adapted to preserve and add to
the beauty of the hair. The only article yet dis
covered that upll Cure the
_.Disease of the Scalp, and
cause the air fo Gro to, •
This is to certify that about eighteen months
ago, I commenced using STERLING'S AMBROSIA.
My hair was short, thin and rapidly falling ont.
I had tried many Hair Tonics, Invigorators, &c.,
without receiving any benefit. Soon after using
the Ambrosia, my hair ceased falling out, and
commenced growing so rapidly as to astonish
me. Now my hair is thick, soft, and glossy,
and is five feet four inches in length—when let
down, reaching to the floor. This wonderful
result I attribute solely to the use of Szastmo's
AMBROSIA, as since 1 commenced using it I have
applied nothing else to my hair.
