speedily. I am sure you long for an oppor

of achieving; that opportunity I shall en
deavor to give you.
In the meantime 1 desire you to dismiss
from your minds certain phrases, which I
am sorry to find much in vogue amongSt you.
I hear constantly of taking strong positions,
and holding them, of lines of retreat, and of
bases of supplies. Let us discard such ideas.
1e strongest position a soldier - should
desire to occupy, is one from which he can

us study the probable lines of retreat of our

behind. Success and glory are in the ad

Let us act on this understanding, and it is'

that your namerrwill be dear to your country

when be proclaimed his desire to aid these
States in the work of gradual emancipation,
he did nit make a politician's promise. One
of the most persistent charges against the
President's policy is the assertion that he
never intended to go beyond a mere recom
mendation, and that, after the work of' eman
cipation had boon commenced, Congress
would refuse to make compensation. Such
a misrepresentation has done much harm in
Delaware, Maryland, and other States. It is
to be hoped that the friends of the President
will bear these things in memory when they
comet to am upon the measure he lies pre
sented to them. Mr. Lincoln has taken a
grave responsibility, and Congres should not
allow bun to bear it alone.- - Their former
emphatic sanction of his remedy should be
