Having premised this mtieh, let ns Ionic
nt the rndical difference existing between
Abolition nnd Emancipation. An nt
tempt is made by tho opponents of the
1 'resident's Kmnnciputinn Proclamation to
confliiind the two ; but the difference is
marked nnd palpable, mid ought to bo stcn
dily kept in view. Abolitionism is the ex
tirpation of slavery, root and branch. It
operates- not only on persons of African
desc'cht now existent, but reaches forward
into the future, and stamps freedom on
those hereafter born. 1 1 repeals all laws'
cronltng.supporting nrid Instering slavery,
und'setsthe brand of criminal infamy on
the relation itself. It goes further, nnd for
ever incapacitates every person from hold
ing fliiy properly in slaves, oither by pur
chase' or descent. More than this, it looks
to and usks for tho enfranchisement of the
liberated slave, and nims at miking them,
in political rights and privileges, at least,
the equals of white men. Such is Aboli
tion." Tho President has r.o power to
abolish slavery in tho sense defined above.
not1 'has Congress. It can only lie done by
the action of the State Governments, or by
the concurrent action of the Slate and Na
tional Governments. The President hns
neither threatened to issue, nor lias he is
suietl, nny Abolition Proclamation ; but he
lias threatened to issue tin Kmuncipation
Proclamation, and, ns the thieat has done
all tho mischief possible for the Proclama
tion itself to do, we confidently expect that
it has been issued.
Hut what is Emancipation ? How doeo
it Operate, and what nro the limits of its
operations? Wo answer, Kmuneipatinn
only operates on slaves now in existence.
Tho right to hold slaves will still exist.
The right to purchase and to tnko such
property by descent will remain unimpaired.
The local laws' 6ri the subject are unaffected.
It is merely a sequestration of property,
ina'3e 'necessary by the national exigencies.

1 Neither the President's Proclamation,
nor nny Act of Congress, can abolish the
institution of slavery in any Slate where it
legnllv exists, without tin' concurrent action
or the State ilself. Thus, il by virtue ol
tlic Proclamation nil the existing wlnvcs in
South Carolina are emancipated, the right
lo hold slaves rI ill remain, nnd may be ex
creised by the people of Smith Carolina
whenever that Slate is ntiaiu in the Union.
Tlie Proclamation merely takes from them
the slaves they now own nnd makes freemen
of them. This right to be their own uiti'
lets is absolutely eonfrrrcd by it. and Smith
Carolina cannot resume her pinto in the
Union holding these people ns slaves. It
operates ns a sequestration "f property
which, in the nature or the case, will not
and cannot be restored ; but it neither for
bid nor prevents iiivislments in the same
kind of" property" in the luliire. It can
not be said that flip same kind of propeity
will not exist, nnd that therefore the riuht
to buy nnd hold will be a barren right, for
it is not proposed to disturb tins existing
relation in the loyal slave Stales.
The right of the' Government to confis
cate and sequester the property of rebels,
with the exception of slaves, is admit ted by
all. But why this exception? Tho same
persons who have heretofore belabored ns
with the argument that n slave was prop
erty in precisely the same sense us n horse
or n mule, nre now the consistent (I) advo
cates of the contrary doctrine. If the
slaveholder wished to tnko his slnvc into
the Territories or States, he owns n mule J
but if you wisli to apply the principles ol'
sequestration or confiscation to that slave,
then he rises from the debasement or chat
telhood, nnd becomes a being sucredly ex
ceptional and peculiar 1

the Statcv.inn, Arpm nnd Republican have
got up nn anti-mutual admiration society,
and are succeeding well.
