hns its privilege.0, which 1 hope this letter
will not exceed. Rut 1 cannot refrain
from expressing to you my gratification
and my gratitude for your letter to the Ill

ho gives literally n report of his own oper

incidentally, that the rebel cavalry was so

An Kvk to tiik FuruiiK. A fviend, re
siding in Port Huron, Michigan, has a lit
tle son About iiiuo years old. A neighbor
of his had a lovely unci interesting daugh-
tor or about tho same ogo. .Thi'to children
have been playmates and fust friends for
several years, mid, ns is frequently the case
in like circumstances, have been often ban
teretl on this childish attachment. Lately
Uncle Sam 15 , the father of tho boy,
met little Jennie on the street.
" What profession do you want Alva to
study for?" said ho with a merry twinkle
in his eye, at the same time stroking affec
tionately the curls of the little maiden.
" Oh I" eaid she with a. confused hesita
tion and nn interesting lisp." 1 don't know,
Mr. I4 . I shouldn't liko to liuve hint
be a nilnitlicr, I gueth."
" And why don't you wnn't liitn to lio
u minister, Jennie?" said the old gentle
" Oli, cawtb," replied she, blushing, nnd
looking down with unufiocle.l modesty,
"milliliters childern never Iiavo nny fun."
Alexander Selkirk, 4he original of Rob
inson Crusoo, lived it great ortiou of hid
life with a SpanMi Jewess, viz.? Jew Ann
tended. I Inn) piib'cqucnlly opportunities
of knowing the views on that subject, not
only or such men us Hamilton, King, Jay
and Pickering, but ulso of distinguished
slaveholders or boili the Pickneys, of
William Smith of South Cnrolinn, and of
many others. With the first of these I
had personal intercourse and acquaintance,
f can truly say that I never knew the indi
vidual, slaveholder or non-sluvehoMer, who
did not express a detestation of it, and the
desire and disposition to get rid of it. The
only difficulty, in ense of ('mancipation was,
What shall wo do for the master, nml what
shall we do with (he slave? A satisfuc
lory answer to both these questions lias
been, until now, beyond the reach nnd the
grasp of human wisdom nnd power.
I hrough the direct influence of a just
mid generous God, the people of lliu United
States have been invested with tho power
of answering satisfactorily both of these
questions, and also of providing for the diffi
culties iuuidcnl In both, of which, if they
fail to avail themselves, thoroughly and
conclusively, they will entail shunio on
themselves und sorrow and misery on many
generations. It is impnsible for me Io re
gard the power thus granted to these peo
ple othorwbc than as u proceeding from
the direct influence of n superintending
Providence who ever makes (hose mud
whom he iiilemh to destroy. Thu only pos
sible way in which slavery, nflcr it had
crown to such u height, could have been
abolished, is that which heaven bus
Your instrumentality in the work is to
you a subject of special glory, favor nnd
felicity. The madness of Secession nnd its
inevitable consequence, civil war, will, in
their result, give tho right und the power
of univtrsal emancipation sooner or later.
If tho United States do not understand and
fully appreciate the boon thus bestowed on
them, und fail to improve it to tho utmost
extent of tho power granted, they will
prove recreant to themselrcs and posterity.
I write under the impression that the
victory of the United States in this war
is inevitable. Compromise- is impossible.
Peace upon any other basis would be tiiu
establishment of two nation t, each hating
the other, both military, both nectssaaily
hostile, their teritorries interlocked, witli a
tendency to never-ceasing hostility. Cun
we leave to posterity a more cruel inheri
tance, or one more hopeless of happiness
Pardon mo for tho liberty I have taken
in this letter, nnd do not feci obliged in
any way to take notlco of it; nnd believe
me, ever your grateful and obliged servant,

marched it day nfter day so us Io interpose
it between the enemy and the Capital,

had the wit, mil withstanding the clamors
raised against him, to refrain from giving

Gknciiai. Jim La.vk o.v Nkoiiokh. In
the supplement of General Lane's speech,
published in the St. Louis llcjmLlican,
October Mlh, he says:

Nothing of that kind trnuspiiis among

thirteen years old, ami u nigger eami! into
the car; the girl was seared to ileulh, and

All his plans were disarranged, nnd instead
of invading the free Stntcs on the heels of
a beaten army, he had no alternative but
to march into Pennsylvania and take the
chances Cx battle there, with the greatly
increased risks of loss, in case lie was de
feated. There lias been no finer maneuver
ing displayed in the wur than that by
which Hooker so embarrassed Lee. Forc
ed, ngainst his judgment, to invade Pcnn
sylvania ; separated from his cavalry, on
which he depended for information ; and
engaged in n movement which promised no
definite conclusion except a battle the
chunces of which, far away from his base,
wero not pleasant to contemplate Lee
did not liopo to get of!' so cheaply as he
did. Uy the skillful lines of concentration
pursued by Hooker nnd Meade he found
his commuuieatioiiR threatened, and made
haste In take the bnck'tmek. At Gettys
burg ho admits n defeat, though qualifying
it by claiming certain captures ; but on
the 4th of July ho was short of ammuni
tion, nnd was obliged to get out of Penn
sylvania ns quickly us he could. He do(B
not mention that ho left several thousand
of his wounded, ami nearly all tho prison
ers he had taken, in our hands ; or that he
retreated silently, in the night, but speaks
of inarching ofl' trains with woundul
and prisoners." Nor does ho specify the
losses ho met with from cavalry attacks on
the retreat. He udmits that Gen. Petigru
was hilled in action, but claims that it was
in a Hinall affair, und does not mention that
it occurred at Falling Waters. He once
asserted tiiat no engagement took place at
that time, and denied the truth of General
Mcade'e report. But ho now makes u re
luctunt ndmmission that Meade's report
was correct. It is absurd to suppose, that
Leo does not, ns he asserts, yet know his
own losses, of which not a figure is giveu.
