i nier.'Oii on Emancipatou.
Ralph Waldo Emerson the greatest thinker
in America enntributes to the Atlantc Monthly
a masterly review of tho President's proclama
lion of Emancipation. Tho following oxtractcs
tiro published as a st.in do of tho whole :
" The extreme moderation with which tie
President advanced his design his long avowed
expectant policy, as if he chose to be strictly the
executive of tho best public snntiment of tho
c'luutrv, waiting only till it should be unmistak
ably pronounced so fair a mind that nolio ever
listened so patiently to such extreme Varieties
tf opinion ; so reticent that his decision has ta
ken all parties by surprise, whilst yet it is the
pist qnel to his prior acts the firm tone in
which ho announces it, without inflarnation or
Mlrplnsa:rA all these have bespoken such favor
to the net that, popular as tho President has been
we are beginning to think that we have underes
timated the capacity and virtue which the Divine
Providence lias made an instrument of benefit so
Vast. Ho has been permitted to do moro for
America than any other American man. Ho is
veil entitled to the most indulgent construction.
YwgM "II that We thought shortevnings, every
misike, every delay. In tho extremo embnr
rassiffrnts f his part, call these endurance, wis
dom, fhngiVanimity, illuminated as they now are
by this -frizzling success.
When wo consider the. immense opposition
thit ha Worn neutralized of converted by the
Tro"ress of tho war (for it is hot long sin? e the
President anticipated the resignation of a large
number of officers in the army and the secession
of three States on the promulgation ot this policy)
when we seo how the grout stake which for--olgn
nations hold in onr nffiirs has wently(
iirouiht every European power as a client to!
this Court, and it bacame every day more op ;
parent what gigantic r.nd what remote interests
were to bo effected by the deeieion of the Pres
identone can hardly say tho deliberation was
tio long. Against all the timorous counsels he
had the courage to seize tho moment; and such
was his position, and such tho felicity attending
the action, that, he has replaced the Government
in the good graces of mankind. ' Better is
to in the sovereign than plenty in t.o season,1
say the Chinese. Tis wonderful vhat power is,
nnd how ill it is used, and hw its ill use makes
life mean, and tho sunshine dark. Life in
America has list much of its attraction in the
later years. The virtues of a good magistrate
undo a world of rnischief, nnd, because nature
works w'i.n rectitude, seem vastly more potent
than the acts of bad governors, which are ever
tempered by tho good nature in tho people, and
the Innocent resistance w hich fraud and violence
encounter. The acts of good governors work at
it geometrical ratio, as one midsummer day
seems to repair the dam.tgo of a year of war.
A day w hich most of us dared not hope to see,
on event worth the dreadful war, worth its costs
nnd uncertainties seems now to be close before
us. October, November, December will have
passed over our boating hearts nnd ptotttn
brains; then the hour wi.l strike, and all men
ot African descent who have faculty enough to
find their wav into our lines are assured of the
protection of the American law.
It is by r.o means neceary tnit tnis measure
should bo suddenly marked by any signal re
sults on the negroes or on the rebel masters.
The f rc of the act is that it commits the coun
try to this justice that it compels ihe innumer
nhlo officers, civil, military, naval, of the Re
public to range themselves on the line of this
equity. It draws tho fashion to this side. It is
rot a meisu that admits of being taken biek.
Done, it cannot be undone by a new Adminis
tration. For slavery overpowers the disgust f
the moral sentiment on'y througli immemorial
o-. It cannot be introduced as nn improve
ment of the nineteenth century. This act mske
that the lives of our heroes has not been sacrificed
in vain. It makei a victory of onr defeat. Our
hurts are healed ; tha health of the nation is re
paired. With a victory like this we ran stand
ininv d.ater. It d.K-s) not promise the re
demotion of th Hack race; that lies not with
us; but it relieves it of our opposition. The 'cleansed out of the earth, leaving open to them
President by this act has paroled nil tho slaves ! an holiest career. 1 lappy tho old who see Na
in America ; they will no more fight against us; fire puriliej before they denart. Do not
and it relieves our raeo oneo for all of its crime
and false position. I ho first condition ot suc
cess is secured in putting ourselves right. We
have recovered ourselves from our false position
and planted ourselves on a law of nature.
"If that fall,
The pillared firmament is rottenness,
And Earth's base built on stubble."
The Government has assure i itself of the bee!
constituency in tho world ; every spark of intel
lect, every virtuous feeling, every religious
heart, every man of honor, every poet, every
philosopher, tho generosity of tho cities, tho
health of tho country, tho strong arms of the mo-
ctiamcs, the endurance ot farmers, mo passionate
COIISCICIICU .! women, lliu rjinjiuiuj ui uniuiii
nations all rally to its support.
In tho light of this event the public distress
begins to bo removed. What if the brokers'
quotations show our stocks discredited, and the
gold dollar costs one hundred mid twenty-seven
cents? These tables uro fallacious. Every acre
in tho free States gained substantial value on the
221 of September. The cause of disunion and
war has been reached, nnd begun to be removed.
Every man's house, lot and garden are relieved
of tho malaria which the purest winds nnd the
strongest sunshine could not penetrate and purge.
Tho territory of tho Union shines to.day with a
lustro which every iMiropean emigrant can dis
cern from (afar ; a sigu of inmost security nnd
permanence. Is it feared that taxes will prevent
immigration ? That depends upon what tho taxes
are spent tor. it they go to till up tins awful
Dismal bwamp winch engulpued armies and
populations, and created plague, nnd neutralized
iii'herlo all tho vast capabilities of this continent
then this taxation, which makes the lain:
wholesome and inhabitable, and will draw all
men unto it, is the best investment in which the
property holder ever lodged his earnings.
While we have pointed out the opportuneness
of tho proclamation, it remains to bo said that
the President had no choice, lie might look
w istfully for what variety of courses lay open to
him ; every lino but one was closed up with fire.
This one, too, bristled with danger, hut through
it was tho sole safety. The measure he adopted
was imperative. It is wonderful to seo tho un
reasonub'o l en'lity of what is called the peace
party, through all its masks, blinding thier eyes
to tho main features of tho war, namely, its
inevitableiuss. Tho war existed long before the
cannonade of Sumpter, and could not bo post
poued. It might have begun otherwise or else
where, but it was iu the minds and bones of the
combatants, it was written on the iron leaf, and
you might as easily Uoilge gravitation. It we
uad consented to a peaceable secession ot the
rebels, the divided seiitimeut of tho border States
made peacablo secession impossible, the insatia
ble temper of the South made it impossible, nnd
the slaves on tho border, wherever it might be
were an iiucesaat fuel to ivkitidlu tho lire..
Give the Confederacy New Orleans, Charleston
and Richmond, and they would have demanded
St. Louis nnd Baltimore. Give them these, mid
they would have insisted on Washington. Give
thein Washington and they would have assumed
the army and navy, and throng') these, Philadel
phia, iNovv lork and Boston. It looks as it the
battc field would have been ut least as large as
it s now. ihe war was formidable, but could
not be avoided. The war was and is an immense
mischief, but brought with it the immense ben
efit of drawing a line, and rallying the free States
to fix it impassably preventing the w hole f rce
of Southern connection and influence throughout
the North from distracting every city with :;.id !

A f"v days since Gov. Harding received a
dispatch from Gen. Craig, at Fort Laramie, re
questing him, in view of the recent Indian out
breaks, to re enlist tho company of Mormon
soldiors w hoso three moths' term of service had
expired a short timo before; and in order that
ho might do this with as little delay as possible,
to consult with P-rlgh im Young on the subject.
Accordingly the Governor of Utah Territory
called upon the President of the Church of Jesus
Christ of Latter-day-Saints, at ihe oliieo ot that
dignitary. Brigham and his two councilors were
present tho ' trinity" ns these three persons
are considered by the saints, the belter to illus
trate the order of their importance iu iheir limit
less pow er on earth.
After the iiitoiui:ry formalities between the
powers celestial and tho powers terrestrial, the
latter, in earthly fashion, male known the con
tents of the dispatch, and proceeded to speak of
tho Indian difficulties, of the necessity of troops
to quell them, and of the propriety f raising n
company of soldiers to be placed ut Gn. Craig's
Tho ruler of the penplo declined any ) artiei
pation in the matter, giving as a reason that the
" boys" were busy with their harvesting, and he
did not think they would be willing to do any
thing more in tlvo military line until they should
seo a pile of " green backs" from Washington;
and demanding to know why Col. Conner, w ith
his command, was not ordered on nn expedition
against the Indians, instead of being sent here
among the Mormons, where he was not at all
Gov. Harding replied that the United States
governments was fully ubie to pay all the men
w ho should enlist iu its service, an 1 that it would
most certainly do so, although there might, in
this case be some littlo delay.
Upon this, Brigham coolly informed tho Gov
ernor of a new and startling fact, viz.: that there
would be no United Slates government, that it
would go to pieces, that tho Iwo armies would
totally destroy each other, etc., closing I ho ti
r.ulo with the very significant question, "Don't
yi"j think, Governor, mat a government admin
isteieJ by ono man, and that mini appointed by
God, would be far better than tho government'
of tho United States, or of any other country f
"Most assuredly," replied the Governor
" because the Almighty could U'vGoubtoil I v make
a better selection than ae.v mnnwiiv of men on
arth. The only Ciucstion woufd be to know
whht man the ij01.j ,m,j t.los011-
AhYe could bo no trouble in deciding that,"
srV.d lircham : "evidently it would ho the man
receive a revelat'on to that elfect "
" But," added tho unbelieving Gentile, "some
times mere than one might claim to to have had
a revelation. Some of your people believe you
to be the true prophet of G jd, and others bo
ileve in another prophet."
" I was not awaro of that fact," interposed the
".Why, it is only a short timo since som? of
your followers set up a new prophet referring j
to the Morrisite?, th is creating schism in the
church, and occasioning the deal!) of several men.
So you see that opposing factions may arise a
well among the people as elsewhere."
Afer a pan-", during which tho " President"
was m mif-stly collecting his forces, he renew ed
Uio attack by saying, " Don't you think tho lime
must come the millennium when such a gov
rnmcnt divinely ruled will bo established on
" I t!o not suppose," replied the Governor,
'that wo-are to consider tho description of the
millennium ns literally fru, but simply ns
lignr 8 i Lr -ugh which the inspired writer sought
to convey his meaning to a highly imaginitive
people. For instance, when we rea l that the
'ion and tin lamb shall lie down together, that
t ie lion shtll eat s!nw like the ox, etc., I do
lot tm-.gi.ie that these phenomena are actually
to take place."
" Why not'' a-kid Brigham in amazement.
Because it would be a physiological bnpos--d.iiity.
The lion must first be rovi !e 1 with a

prophet in solemn tones.
" From books from such authors ai B ifi'on,

'i hey don't know half as much about it as I
do. Tle-y don't know anything aliout it. It was
sheer folly for them t) write ai h books, nnd it
onll be better fir tho worlJ if they were aii
"Well," -laid tho Governor good iiiturcdly,
' l.ist'Tv has f...roishid us with an illustrious ex
ample of your mode of thinking, in the character
of the great Saracen ehieftuin, who ordered tho
splendid Alexandrian Library, enriched by tho
collection of ages, to be burned to ashes, giving
as a reasoi, that all books which contradicted
tho Koran were, false, and ought to be destroyed,
while ail those which agreed with the Koran, it
was unnecessary to preserve, as they were lucre
works ol supererrogation."
At this presumptuous speech from a mortal, in
the Triune presence, it is reported that the saint
ly glow which unceasingly illumines the counte
nance of the Prophet-in Chief, the Lord's anoint
ed, was sudleiily lighted to a remarkable degree
tho halo ot glory being changed, in a twink
ling, to tho more, liry halo of w rath righteous
indignation, 1 should sav and the second in
power and majesty, the Prophet's first Councilor,

shut out from his eyes tuJ miracle so sura to fid

third person in tho Trinity, in whose title of
Lieutenant-general there is a smacking of this
world, taking it more as a mortal would, lay
back on the sofa, and surveyed the ceiling with
w hat was intended to bo an air of indifference.
The audacious sinner, evidently forgetting that
his auditors were anything more than ordinary
human beings, quietly drew their attention to
the business which had brought him to their
Brigham still declicing to render any assist
an. c in tho matter, and nuain alluding to the
wreck of our Givcrnment, tho heart of the Gov
ernor was stirred within him, t ud rising from
his seat in earnestness, he said :
" President young, while I agree with you on
many points, there is one subject upon which 1
disagree with you in Into crto ; and that is your
theoiy that this government is going to pieces
on the principle of ihe Kilkenney-cat light. Mark
my words. I prophesy against your prophecy.
These dillienlties w ill be settled, and there will
be more cats left than ever were heard of in Kil
kenny. I can converse coolly upon any subject,
ex;cpt when I am talking of my country, in the
hour of h- r peril, nn I I suspect the man I am
talking with to be disloyal. Then I become exci
ted." " I want you "to distinctly understand,
President Young," added tho patriotic Gov
eri:o", grow ing ehctnent, " that I ahall stand by
my government stand by it to tho death."
'Whereupon, taking his hat, ho politely bowed
himself out of tho Presence, leaving such atti
tudes nnd expressions as though a ncnv revelation
had suddenly came down from on high.
Ashamed of her l'athor.
Little Sallie was tho daughter of an lioni 8
blacksmith, and was a very frank warm hearted
child. A new house had been erected on a high
hill near, by a fine gentleman from tho city ; and
Sallio was delighted to see in his carriage, drawn
by two fine bay horses, a sweet little g'rl about
her own age. Oneo when she was in tho shop,
they stopped to say something to Giles about
shoeing the horses, and Sallio smiled ht Lucy
who iu turn threw her a great red apple. Sue
caught it so nicely that '.t.ey bolh laughed heart
ily ; and becav,c f. ionds ; for littlo children have
none of i'nat mean pride w hich we sometimes see
l'l older people, till they aro taught it.
One day when Sallie was dressed very neatly,
she asked leave to take a walk, and bent her steps
towards tho mansion on tho hill. Sho did not
know how to go around by the road, so she
climbed over fence and wall till she reached the
grounds. There to ln r delight she saw Lucy on
a little cray pony which tho coachman was lead
ing carcf'diy by the bridle. Shu drove up to
the wall and asked, in a kind voice, "Have you
berries to sell, little girl T'
Sailiu laughed, mi l said, "No, I'm Sallie; don't
you remember me ? I came to play with you
a little while. May that man open tho iron gate
for me ? It is very heavy."
"I should like to plav w ilh you, and t let
you ride on my pony," replied pleasant littlo Lu
cy, "but I know mamma would not allow mo to
plav wnli you.
"Why not f asked Sallio in wonder. "I nev
er say naughty words, and I am all dressed clean
' Oh!"s'iid Lucy, "it is becauso your father
works w ilh his shirt sleeves rolled up, and has a
smutty faeo .m l hands."
"Oh, the smut washes otf !" replied tho inno
cent child, "lie is always clean in the evening;
and w hen hu lias h'u Sunday clothes on he's the
handeomest man in tho world ! Mother is pretty
dl the, timl ! '
"Oh, but mamma wou'd not let you in, I
know, becauso your father shoci thu horses," ad
"'1 hat is no harm, is it ? Doiit your father
want his horses shod " asked tho wondering Sal
lie. "Yes, but he won't let inn 'lay with poor peo
ple's children," answered Lucy.
" Were not pone ; we are very rich" replied
Sallie. "Father owns the house and tho shop,
and wev'egota cow and a calf, and twenty
chickens, ned tho darlinge-t little baby boy iu
the world !"
But after nil this argument littlo Lucy shook
her head sadly, and said, "1 wouldn't d. ire to ask
) Oil in, but 1 II give you some flitters."
S.i Sallie went back over fence and wall,
wondering much nt what hid passed. Then for
the fir-t time in h.-r life, she w ished that lu r
I'.llier would wear his Sunday dollies all tho
week. ii-.t as tho minister and the doctor und
I l,ucy 'a father di i. hue almost f.-lt ashamed of
I him s., noble, nnd kind, and good as she cnt
j erud the simp to w lit for him. She stood by the
' lorge tr) ing to enjoy the sight if tho sparks ns

stroke of the hammer. B it her thoughts were
so troubled that 'he could not " th beau
t ful pictures which she had always found before
in the bl.iz'ng lire. mountains, castles, churches,
si g-1 ', all were go;:e and there w as noth'rg lift
j In the black shop but a coal fire, hot sparks, nnd
a smutty man ! Tears came into Sallio's eyes,
but she crowded them baok because sho could
not tell w hy she shed them.
Tho fire was out ; the blacksmith pulled ofFhis
i apron, laid aside his hammer, and took the soft
hand of Sallio iu his own hard and smutty one.
For the first time in her life she withdrew it to
see if the black came oil ; just then the ears came
in; and to her joy she saw little Lucy on the
platform waiting for her father. The conductor
helped him from the steps, and he called out to
j Lucy, J'take my hand, child ;" but sho put both
j hands to her face to hide it, and sprang back into
tho carriage alone ; while tho coachman with a
I blushing face, almost lifted tho finely dressed
gentleman into it. Oh, what a sad, sad sight!
! lie had been drinking wine till his reason was
gone, and ho could not walk ; so his own sweet
child was ashamed of him !
Then Sallie grasped tho hard hand of Giles,
not caring w hether tho smut rubbed off or not,
and told him all that was in her heart. "Oh,
till her," sho cried, "I was so wicked that I was
just beginning to be ashamed of you becauso
your faeo was black, and you did not dross up
like a gentleman all the time. I'm so glad you
aro a blacksmith instead of a drunken man !
Poor, poor little Lucy ! She is ashamcd'of her
father, although he has on a lino coat and gold
buttons in his shirt !"
We commend the following sensible views,
from tho Yrcka Journal, to tho consideration of
the "Union Democrats" those God forsaken
sore headed politicians, w ho devote one half of
their time to scheming how to obtain office at
tho next election, and the other half to calling all
men "Abolitionists," who nra honest enough
to support the Government :
The great difference between tho North nnd
South, for many years, has been, that tho North
respected the Constitution and tho laws, submit,
ting always with good grace to the majority,
against individual will, while the South has re
peatedly threatened to dissolve the Union, if tho
North had the independence to go ngainst her
will. They were determined to oppose the con.
stitutional authority of Abraham Lincoln acting
as Prcsi 'cut, ns the voice of tho people declared
ho should. Even Sthphcn A. Douglas was con
sidcred too much of :m "Abolitionist" to be sup
ported by them for President. Tho only excuse
they allego for the rebellion, is violation of tho
Constitution, which allegation is also seconded by
their sympathizers at the North, who only work
for party and not for country. Douglas was a
pure Democrat a true Pcpuhl'cau and genuine
patriot. lie believed iu defense of his country,
that necessity was nbovo all law, and in his en
dorsement of General Jackson, cared not whether
the officer violated the Constitution or not, so
Ioikj ns his acts w ere necessary to crush rebellion.
Lvt every cannon, rifle and war implement be
regarded as tho Constitution, from which suffi
cient doses may bo administered to tho rebel",
until they learn to respect tho lawful authority
and benelils of the Constitution, ns tho majority
of the people and the majority of tho Stales have
always understood it. The distinction of parties
lately seems to be, that those whom secessionists
can not ulliliato with are Abolitionists, hence it is
reasonable to assert that thoso whom the afore
said Abolitionists cannot ulliliato with, must bo
secessionists. We confess wo arc Abolitionist
enough to keep us from shaking hands, in parti
san unity, with hands stained with loyal blood.
There is but two sides loyalty and troason.
Loyally is headed by Abraham Lincoln ; treason
is hea.le 1 by JeH'ersou Davis, President Lincoln
believes iu undermining treason by destroying
slavery, and though it surprised the deep seated
prejudice of tho people on tho nigger question,
theyjare becoming reconciled, and the movement
is getting exceedingly popular ns n powerful sac
rifice of secesh bread and butter, to hungry
murderers of loyal men.
A SioNincANr Fact. Tho only fl ig of any
nation that has attempted to run the blockade
has been that of England. This speaks volumes
t r the hypocritical chracter of n poition ot tho
public sentiment of Great Britain, and also of
sincere neutrality of its Government.

day, it may be happy and blissful, as alio lifts
up her laughing eyes, the symbol of her own
bright heart, and leaves in that look darkness and
desolation, to you forever. The boy your father's
spirit h is clung to, like the very light of your
existent e, waves his hand from the quarter-deck
as the gig mtic ship bends over the breeze; the
wind is playing through tho locks your hands so
of.cn times have smoothed ; the tears have now
dimed his eyes, lor mark, he moves his fingers
over them and this is the last look.
