JIST There have been some severe en- i
gagements in the west, with great loss of life
on both sides. Nothing definite however, is
known as to the result.
The abolitionists who insist thai !
" slavery is the cause of the war," must
now, since it has been abolished by old Abe's
proclamation, admit that there is no causo
for further 6trife. Why don't they send the
army hotne ?

" The Proclamation of Freedom."
The character of this document was so j
fully overshadowed m its September precnr
s<>r that public interest center* m>>re oti tiie
fact of its issue than on the nature of its con
tents. What principally strikes public at
tention, is the fact that President LINCOLN
has fully and finally committed himself to
the policy of emancipation. The jiartictiJar
features of the proclamation which seem de
serving of remark are tbe-e : the President
rests the measure on purely militaty grounds
with u distinctness winch did not appear in
the September proclamation ; he avows an
intention to receive the emancipated slaves
into ihe military and naval Service of the
United States; and he recognizes the state
hood and unity of all the designated states,
including Virginia, excepting the forty eight
western Counties in such terms as to imply
that they are still c unties of the ts'aie of
Virginia, despite ihe fact that the day be
fore is-uing t e proc amation he had signed
the oill for the admission of those Counties
into the Union as a new state.
The most imp rtant question that can
arise relative to this proclamation respects
its legal effect. Immediate practicul effect
it has none; the slaves remaining in precise
ly the sinie conditio) as before. They still
live on the plantations ; tenant their accus
tomed hovels ; obey tin? Command of their
master or overseer, eating the food he fur
nishes and doing the work he requires pre
cisely as though Mr. LINCOLN had not de
clared them free. Their freedom, then, it is
clear, is only a dormant freedom ; if free at
all, they ace not actually but on'y legally
free. If the proclamation is of any legal
orce, it is like a deed purporting to convey
the fee am pie of a piece of properly to which
there is an adverse claimant being in actual
I os-ession. The tide of the slave to his free
dom is to be made pood by asserting it in a
court of competent jurisdiction. The naitfe
of the suit is such that the United States
courts have no jurisdiction except by appeal
or on a writ-of erne*. The original remedy
of the slave (if lie has any) is in the local
Courts <>f the state where he lias Lis domtcil.
These courts, we know beforehand will not
entertain his suit. They -Jo not recognize
the validity of the deer, eon which he rests
his claim. So long, therefore, as the present
pol.tical and military status continues, the
freedom declared by this proclamation is a
dormant, not an actual freedom. The legal
maxim will apply to it that de vou apparen
libus el de nan exislenlibus ratio est eadem
—laca> that do not appear are to be classed
with those that do not exist.
The slaves might, to be sure, take the vin
dication of their tights into their own hands,
by rising, en masse, against their masters.
But this they could have done any time with
in the last filtv years with quite as good ad
vantages and as strong a color of right as now.
Mr. LINCOLN'S paper proclamation is of no
more force than ttie impre-er.ptable title to
freedom born with human being who has
couage and vigor of character to assert it.
Tliere has never been a time when the ne
groes had so little to hope Imm mi insurrec
tion as at present. The whole South is in
arms. If the slaves were dtposed to run
aw ay, they are hemmed 1.1 by large armies on
all the s utliein frontiers. Whither could
they flee ? 11, assembling in iarge bodies,
they should offer a show of violence, what
have they, unarmed against the abundance of
improved artillery and fin arms in the liand
ot the superior race. It tney result to the
torch cf the incendiary, how are they and
and their litile ones to subsist ? Whatever
small chance th y have of gaining their free
dom is by a servile instirr ctioo ; but tiiey
have leu chances to rush on to destructi >n to
one of escaping from servitude. It. s obvi
ous, therefore that for the prc+e't the proc
lamation is inoperative an I fe.-10. It may
strengthen the resistance of the rebels, but it
cannot benefit the slaves.
It may be said that the proclamation estab
lishes a legal claim to freedom Which the
slaves may successfully assert afier the milita
rv subjugation of the South, Bui this knocks
ihe bottom out of the proclamation ntd all
its con'ents. The proclamation is issued as
a war measure; as an instrument for the sub
jugation ofill rebels. But t) a> cannot he a
means of military success winch pre
supposes this same military snccti-6 as
the condition of its own existence.
It Confound- all ideas of means and ends to
call emancipation a war measure when eman
cipation is obviously unattainable until aftet
military resistance is put out of the way.—
ff the war should end in the triumph of the
rebellion the proclamation would, of course,
amount to nothing. 11 the rebellion is sub
dued, the proclamation merely gives a color,
able ground for suits for freedom befote the
tribunals of the country. Its wit >le vffiu-icv
must finally depend on whether it is sus
tained by the courts. That the cour's of
the slave states in which the suits must orig
inally he brought will not sustain it admits of
no doubt whatever. That the Supreme
Court of the United States, to winch such
suiis may be carried for final adjudication,
will declare the proclamation void is also
morally certa'n. It is clearly unconstitution
al and wholly void unless sustainable as a
war measure. A war measure it clearly is
not, in .-much as the previ us succe-s of tlac
war is the only thing that can give it validity.

Let us Understand Each Other—Renewed
Threats of Arrest in Xew York.
The Philadelphia Press, to-day, which is
presumed to speak for the Administration,
-ays. in reference to New York, and New
York politicians:
"The course of the Administration in ar
res'ing traitors will he Governed by the eir"
cntnstances that Controlled it in other times.
If the danger should again demand the sum
mary arrest of traitors in New Y. rk , they
will be or rested. n
If ty "traitors," the Press means Demo
crats, or Old Line Whigs, or C mservatives,
in New York, they will nut be thus arrested,
or if arrested, 'hey will be liberated, by t fie
whole posse comitatis of the Democracy of
the States, if necessary, 300,000 men in arms,
and New Jer.-ey to statin by us—with more
than half of Connecticut, now. It is well to
understand each other if these things be de
signed.—N. I*. Express, 24th.
The Abolition Governor of Mass*
cliuseiis promised 44 Father Abraham" fust
summer that if he would issue a proclamation
freeing the slaves that the highways of New
England would swarm with Volunteers en
route to suppress the rebellion.
Will the proclamation was issued, and
sotne three months have expired, and Massa
chusetts has not yet furnished even her quota
of troops ! A draft uas ordered by the Presi
dent ; it was executed iu Pennsylvania and
el.-ew lu re some two months' ago ; but in loyal
Massachusetts —who 44 made the war,'''' as is
tauntingly claimed by one of her 44 noble up
per class" inen—not withstanding Gov. An
drews' promise to the President, it has lieen
postponed fr the fifth time,until the Bth of
January next.
We think it is high time our counfymen
should see the hypocrisy of Abolitionism, as
practiced upon the nation for the last twenty
uvnths,and appreciate it at its true value.
'1 he effort of the Gvernor of massachu-etts
toiseap#the responsibilities of this war of
, Massachusetts own making , is becoming
J more apparent every day.
The Boston Commonwealth is a new week
ly journal, very neatly printed on fine paper,
and edited with that sort of ability which is
peculiar to highly literary and refined fanatic
ism. It is said to be the organ of Char!e„
Sumner, and, judging frotn its tone and tem
per, we believe it is.
In the sixteenth number of the Common
wealth, dated December 20th, 1802. we find
a variety of noticeable articles, among which
is one 1 ended "The President," from which
we cut the following passages:
"Nearly two years have p "ssed over the!
country since the President advanced to the
helm of state. Suppose at this moment he J
shotilt) bo caljt a from the world, what would
be the record on the page of hiet< ry life by
hitn ? History must inexorably assign him
a place in the rear, along with the many
weak and inadequate men of the time.'
This is a melancholy truth, although it
was uttered by an Abolition journal.
The ariicle frotn which we quote, complains
that Mr. Lincoln has not gone far enough nor
fast enough in emancipation, and closes by
exhorting him to go the whole figure imme
"Must the leader of this nation be foiever
outside of the Government ? Be their leader!
Throw away from ynu 'he whole trihe of
se!f--eekers and fools; call to your Cabinets
and to the field those who are the champions
of L'berty ; cast away the Sewards, Blairs,
Smiths, Bateses, Stanleys, and all the wretch
ed Border State clique—heave them like a
nightmare from your breast ! Sound the
bugle ot Universal Freedom—let the wild joy
of America's Year of Jubilee ring through
the startled world, bringing every true heart
and sinew of the world to your side !
"You will have to c< me to it— or some
leader will trample over your dishonored
political grave to come to it ! Why then let
this lacerating, horrible, spiritless, aimless,
needles slaughter go on, until in the phrenzy
ot despair lite nation already tossing you
frotn h"rn to horn, shall take the great stride
whose first effect will be to grind you under
its heel, and leave of you only a name to be
'lighted down with dishonor to the latest
generation V
This means that, if Mr Lincoln shall refuse
to do all tie radicals desire, they will find a
leader (Fremont, for instance.) who will as
sutne control of the Government and •'tram
ple over" Mr. Lincoln's dishonored political
grave" to accomplish their purpose. It was
probably with Something like the spirit
which prompted this that the late Senatorial
causus was moved, when it demanded the
retnova' of Mr. Seward, and it is not to bi
presumed that this spirit is yet '' laid." It
will, doubtless, make further attempts to co
erce Mr. Lincoln to make his Cabinet utterly
But, that the Abolitionists will ever be
ble to execute the threat of deposing Mr
Lincoln, though some more acceptable leader,
we do no' believe. The army does not love
them or their doctrines well enough to aid
them in such an enterprise. Fremont could
not lead our soldiers into such a business
and everybody knows that the Abolitionist*
themselves have not the requisite courage t"
undertake a work involving so much of per
senal hazard.
But, why should the radicals desire to de
pose Mr. Lincoln? He has done almost, it
not quite,all they have asked him to do. lie
has suspended the privilege ot th u rit of ha
beas corpus, and imprisoned those who pro
t s'ed against their doctrines and practices ;
he has signet! their bill abolishing slavery in
the District of Columbia ; their bill spnal
ing the Wilmot Prov'se over all the Territo
ries ; thrir confiscation bill— al! their bills;
he has procl timed universal emancipation ;
be has so managed as to render the recon
struction of the Union, on the basis of our
I "pro-slavery" Constitution, as hopeless as
they could wish ; he has—what has he riot
done, that the\ have desired hitn to do ?
It is certainly, very ungrateful tor the Ab
. olitiotiists to threaten Mr. Lincoln with de
j positien. Should the Conservatives of the
country employ such a threat, he might ex
cuse them, for, them has he offended. Some
,i>fthe Abolition papers are complaining of t e
New York Express lor hinting at the neces
sity for despostng the President. Let them
not over look tie Commonwealth ; nor forgei
that the New \ork limes, more man a year
ago, recommended that some military leader
should stqiersede Mr. Lincoln.
Poor Lincoln ! What a sad thing it was
for hi in, (and for his country ton,) that he
was called away from the Springfield bar
W hat he is to do with the country, or what
the country is to do with him, Heaven only
knows ! We would fain hope that " some
leader" uf the ABOLITIONISTS will not " tram
ple over his dishonored political grave," and
yet, we should hope that he may not be per
muted to trample upon the grave of this
Government—the Constitution and the Un
ion—as be has trampled upon the most sa
cred rights of the people.
THE REASON WHY ?—The Abolitionists are
opposed to using M spades" before a battle
that there may be the more use for them af
terwards—in digging the graves for their
dead victims of their " infernal" policy.
