more in good.
I here is it measure needing cnumgo to
iidont mid enhance it. which I believe lo
be of virtue fitiflicienl to icdeeni the nation
in this its darkest hour; one only; I know
of no other to which wo tuny rationally
trust Tor relief 110111 impending daiigeis
without mid within.
The dnngeis which threaten us me two
fold: I' irs.1, from tho Confederate forces,
conipoFed of men whose earnest convic
tions and reckless bravery it is idlo to
deny. Secondly, from 0111 selves, compelled
to make use ol n military power of pio
portions to gigantic thai 110 nation ever
permittid the exist euro of nieh without
moie or less 1 isle to the people who em
ployed it. If we think lightlv of this
latter danger, we slight the (cachings of
ull past time.
As to the llrst : Have you not had your
moments of doubt whether we arc to suc
ceed at nil? whether the Union, once so
glorious, will ever be rc-united? whether
peace, which wu iiFod to enjoy with us lit
tlu gratitude as we do the Vu'u or the air
we breathe, will ever again fettle down
over our distracted country?
If I have doubts of all" this, it is only
becaiiFO I do not know what your action
-will he. We have at our disposal the
means or certain miccc.-s; but I cannot
tell whether, while there is jet time, you
will decide to employ them.
Our enemies, like the (jiecian hero, have
otic vulnerable point. You have not
touched it yet. What fliould huvo been
their element of wenkners him luen sulll-rcd
to remain mi element of strength.
They have nearly a million of able
bodied men ol lit age for war or for labor.
Holding these men in bondage, mid em
ploying iliem to till the soil, I hey ure ena
bled tot-end to llio but tie-field almost their
entire white adult population, yet preserve
their commissariat siiflleienlly supplied.
It li3S nlways been a great wrong that
the:-o men mid their families should ha
held in bondage. "We of the North have,
hitherto acquiesced in it, lest, in the en
deavor to redress it in violation of the
Constitution, greater evils might ensue.
Hut the time has come when it ;V consti

iiuiile it so. Property in man, always mor

Tin se questions me uddrrhHil to you.
For upon you mid upon your action more
than any other ouu thing does the unswer
depend. You have, at this time, more
power than any constitutional monarch in

only IT you should act without the. advice,
or even contrary to the opinions of your

not now, if it is uranglul ut its birth,
but l.e tempts Providence who snflcrs that
spirit ol anarchy to grow uu.l gather
strenght before striking a blow for its de

of these men. lie that 1 litis may rrud it.
They see that wo in? drifting towawls

from the masses of our people fur this great
measure U becoming, day by day, more
importunate. They know that a majority
of your Cabinet favor it. They fed as
sured, as lo yoiiiM-lf, that if the option re
niiiimd with you. it is but n question of
time mid of firm when ami how a procla
mation of emancipation will be issued.
They perceive but ouu power that has any

object, namely, to perpetitito among us
that slavery which the nation, with n de
termination wliich iiicicasts from day to

One blow may be dealt by you against

Dm:.v:i:s ov Washington. Tlio cor
respondent of tho New Voik Commercial
Advertiter, Miys : You have been eoiitJiini
ly inlorined by tclegiums mid concspoia'
ents that " Washington is mfe." This K
iinduibtedly li tie. Indeed, it may be ques
tioned whether the capital, at any moment,
lias been in ical danger. Tho le'bd au
thorities have never, ut any time, to can.
sidcrcd it. Hut it in well that il should bo
known that the chief defence of Washing
ton consists in thu munition of locks'
that surround tho entire eiicuuil'ereiicc or
the city. Iib location is such, ucmly iu
the centre of an area exactly ten mile
sqiiaie, thnt every approach to it can be
securely guarded. There at e flfty-t wo foi ts.
ami several parallel linen of eniluinkmenls
at this liour around Washington. The
fortifications on Arlington Heights are
alone of sufficient strength to deft ml tlm
Capital nguint an army of live hundrtil
thousand invaders, All tho guns of the
forts me iu pel feet range of each other,
and command every inch of space be
tween. In addition to these the embank
ments can tbiow heavy shells for overt hi ee
miles beyond, while the gunboats iu tin:
river, within tlio linc-n of battle, can reach
even further. In all the points iljippni the
veiy best of our picked troops are Ma
tiond, eoiumuuded by experienced oflicers.
It is sale to say that four hundred thou
sand drilled men nro on duty, with mi
abundant supply of ordinunco .and ammu
nition, for the immediate defence of the
Capital of the nation. Hence, Washing
ton ii safe.
