The Satanic Crusade Against the Administration. Views of Mr. Lincoln and the States men of the Country. INTERESTING PROCEEDINGS LN CONGRESS. Review of Eighty Thousand Rebel Troops at Centrcville. Order as to Future Enlistment* in the Army, *?., fctl} h?t Washi.igtoh, Dec. 0, 1881. TH* SATANIC ABOLITION MOVXM8NT IN CONORESB ? TDB POLICY OF THB ADMINISTRATION. Grout anxiety is felt with regard to tho action of Con gress, daring the present wo?k, in relation to tbo confls, cation or slaves, and other measures that have been brought before the Senate and tbo House. Tho adminis tration, howevor, has an undoubted majority in both Branches of the national legislature, and every attempt at abolition legislation will be successfully met both by votes aud by argument. A noted anti-slavery agitator remarked tbis morning: ? "We do' not expect to carry our measures, but we shall awaken public sentiment, and prepare the way for a revolution against the imbecile policy of tho President and his counsellors." This awakening of public sentiment, and enlightenment of tho Intelligence of the rc&tais, is precisely what Mr. Lincoln and his friends want. They are convinced that the sober second thought of the North will endorse with an over whelming approach towards unanimity tho course that has boon resolved ou by thoso who, with singlo minded ness desire tho restoration of the integrity of the Union and Its liberation from tho dangers that encompass it. As it is of the utmost moment that every ono should know exactly upon what ground the President Btandsi you may accept the following facts m unquestionable and beyond the possibility of contradiction:? 1. That the President Is resolutely determined to veto any schema whatever, involving tbo Muanciprit.O'.i of negroes, in such a manner that they are turned hose upon the Southern States on au equality with tbo while occupiers of tho soil. lie, on Saturday evening, uttered tho following word., ? "Emancipation would be equlva lent to a John Brown raid, on n gigantic scale. Our posi tion is surrounded with a sutllcient number of dangers already. Abolition would throw against us, Irrevocably, the four S?utcs of Missouri, Koutucky, Virginia and Mary land, wliic'.i it is costing tho nation such efforts torogu.n. We have our bands full as it is, and If there is to bo any such suicidal legislation, wo might aa well cut loose at once, and begin taking up the arteries to prevent our bleeding to death." My informant has givon mo these words that foil from tho President's Hps, as neaily as ho could remember them , and thinks they are exnetly what he said. He spoke forcibly and energetically, deprecat ing as worse than useless, from whatever point of view it might be regarded, the fanatical disturbance which tbo of Congres.s arc endeavoring to create. 2. The most farsighted statesmen of the Cabinet, the Senate and tho House arc persuaded that tho armies of ths loyal States are no moro likely to return to their frozon homes, after experiencing the delights of tho charming climato of the fruitful and sunny South, than the Goths and Vandals of conturies bygono were to with draw from tbo Italian paradisa they had occupicd, into tho wilderness from whence their hordes poured forth to ovorrun tho world. No government of tho United States will ever be strong enough to induco the six hundred thousand troops about entering the rebel States, to aban don tho region thoir arms shall have conquered. There fore, cma'tcipaiing negroes would not be tumiiii) them loose against the present rebel papulation of the South; but again H the Northern intaders of the Southern soil that are loot it t future occupiers, who will never consent to reside North of the Potomac again, awl who unll competition, bg an inferior race, with Hair future labors. 3. Abolition politicians will shortly open their eyes to ! this fact, that tho cutiro army is against them, am! they will then no moro dare to continue to urge their nefarious and unpatriotic projects, than tho "On to Richmond" demagogues of ilvo months ago did to risk tho dangers of dofcwling their clamorous outcries against the udmlnts tration, Rftcr tho disastrous defeat at Bull run. Tho advantages they imagino mutt accrue from flgitatiou of the slavery question will bo wholly against themselves, and will ruin them in the oyes of the nation. They have boon recently rcinforccd by large numbers of honest but unthinklug zealcU l'or the welfaro of tho republic, who have reasoned that as, through emancipation, a deadly blow might bo aimed at rebellion, It ought t0 bo struck in order that traitors may suffer. This lattor class, wheu better informed, and nwnro of wLat has be come evident to farslghted patriots, namely that un necessary slave arming, Mave emancipation, or attempts to raise negroes to a lovel with the whito race, would cause tho disbandmcnt of our nrmies, and irrnyocablo animosity among loyal non-slaveholders of the South, will throw their weight into the scale of the admints; ra tion, and be guided by the enno and sagacious policy it inculcates. 4. According to the best information that government can obtain, the vnst majority of the non-slaveholders of tho South are either already loyal, or disused to return to their allcglanco to thnUnitodStatos. Rebel demagogues ha 1 persuaded them tin. t tho intention of tlio North, if suc cessful was toliboratetheelaves, whom they simply exe crate, bcea'.iBO they are their unnatural rivals; treated bettor than they are themselves; nnd liviug on the fat of the land, at their expense. "Poor white trash," is a com mon expression among the well cared for black laborers of plantations, with rcfsrenco to the non slaveholders who vainly strive to eke out tho existence which, for them, is mad? comparatively comfortable. Rather than witness tho emancipation of four millions of black barbarians, who are their natural enemies, and whom they hate equally with their owners, the non slaveholders would flght to tho death; but, as they have begun to becomo awaro that neither our armies, nor tho administra tion, have any intention to raise them to tho dignity of equals with tho whites, they ara beginning to perceive the folly and uaelcifsness of the war. This is proved by the practical suppression of tho right of suffrage by the rebel govornment. Jefferson Davie and his .associates, tremble at tho thought of sub" milling their future destinies to a popular vote. They know better than others that the mild and Judicious poll, cy of President Lincoln has nearly destroyed their own prestige, an.l that tho ptiblio heart in the South yearns U,( peaco. Our aimies who will occupy the South and rc Uuiu thoro, and the non-slaveholders of the Southern States, are natural allies. Tho common end IxMh wlU^ hereafterVJJave in view will bo tho unfettered possession of tb? foil by ?eB i Md ttt? ?waocipatio# of the latter from tho c/ueity of negro inlluencs. This toll" ence, bad >1 it m?y be while the blacks ore tl&voe wduld be tenfold worie if they were free, and therefore eman cipation nod a reunion of the State* aro wholly Incum patible. 6. In view of these circumstances Vrwldeut Luto<'lu favors the plao of colonisation. Bolioving la the theory of a natural fitness of rae?s for particular *ones; thoroughly awa r? that the majority of tho Inlutbltsn ts of the border States, from the earliest days of tho car?er of Henry Ciay, up to the presont hour, have been in favor of the total occupation of the soil of these States by whites, and the removal of blacks; a disciple of the school of Jefferson and Madison, whlcb desired to mako of Central America a region, which inhabited by negroes would sup ply the whole world with cotton aud sugar? tho India of tho United mates ; convinced that the country k) abun dantly able to pay the value of tljo Blavcn colonizod out of the confiscated proporty of portinaciotis rebels, Mr. Lincoln has presented the colonisation uchomo favorably In his Message and it will be sustained by him to the fullest extent of his power. THE Sl. VV'l HY ltr 'OLUflONd IN COMUUB3S. As to-morrow and Wednesday will bo dovole I to pro ceedings consequent on tho death of Senator* link or and ! Bingham, tho House ban postponed tho cousidi ration of tho various slavery propositions until Thursday.

Tho radical faction HUd tho cc t servative olomont were about equally represented. Senator I'omoroy , of Kansas, w im called to the chair and Mr. McPhcracn, of Poiint-.v Ivanla, made Secretary. THe proceedings were iuformU. It aj pe'irod to be sun ply a conversational intorcl. r.go of opinions, In which cach party was endeavoring to fool the other, 'fl ic dis cussion was oponad by Hen. Thad. Stevens, of Poms) ivu 11 la. in a brief spceeh, In w Inch ho said in sub stanco that the republican party bad boon sold In the election of Abraham I.incolu to the Presidency; that tho Northwest ha I deceived them by assurances that ho was a true mid sound republk .in ; but that assurance had failed ; that Governor Seward had also caved In, and that Cameron too had faltered ; that if be had adhered to tho position first assume. 1 in hi.* report bo might have placed himself in a position lo bcconit ihe next President. Tho remarks of Mr. Stevens wore characterized by bit ter sarcasm and unmitigated faultfinding with the ad ministration particularly, and tho republican part) gen erally. Mr. Divon,of New York, followed with a sharp criti" cism upon the caucus itself. Ho desired to know the purpose for wblsb It had been called? whether it was to consolidate tho republicrn pot ' 7 < r 10 prepare for an as sault upon tho administration. Mr. Stev na replied with considerable vehemmec and bitterness. the debato then became general. It was participated ,n by Mess's. Lovqjoy , Potter . '>>lfiix and others, but no satisfactory conclusion was attained, nor were any do Unite measures proposed. Tho general tone of expression wni in favor of the |wis sage of a law by Congress confiscating nil the property o1 rebels that could bo usod by tbom In otd of th" rebellion' that tho sbapo of such a law was not agreed upon. The conservatives who wero present loft the caaeus in evident disgust, ami tho radicals retired manifestly dis satisfied with the proceedings ond dejected at.

Tho notice for the caucus to uight at. the Capitol, as loud after the House adjourned, tavitod the attendance of the republicans of both bouse! on matters of Importance. Mr Vallandlgham apparently expressed his surprise, ro marking that "be thought these wore the days of no party." THE VOTE ON I.OVIMOY'S UKPOMTION.

A colored b< y came in yesterday from Cent e vilo.and hus made a statement whicli Is deemed reliable. Ho says the robels hid a review i f eighty thousand troops at Centrovllli a few days ago. Beau regard and all their principal generals were present. During the review 'in alarm was created by a report that our entire army itt tliis vicinity was marching to attack them. A panic and statnpeoe took place, rivalling the retreat at Bull run. Several guns were left on the Held, and not recovered until tho next day. Army wagons were capsized and wagon poles broken off, and their drivers fled in -lis" may. The scene is said to have been ludicrous m tha extreme. RECONNOISSANCE BY THE REBELS. Lata this afternoon Gen. J. L. Wadsworth, who has boon engaged In a court martial in Uio city, received a de spatch from Assistant Adjutant General J. Price Smith i stating that a rogiment of robel infantry and one of cav .1 ry had appeared in front of Blocker's division, and two of Blenker's regiments hail been thrown out to meet them.

BOOKER'S DIVISION, ETC. Tho Hsr-alu's correspondent on duty with Gonoial Hooker's division reports, under date of December 6: ? Several asconKlons wcro made yesterday in tho balloon at Budd's Ferry. The rebels were found to bo posted in considerable numbers on the hills and in th ? valleys of the Virginia side of the rotomao. Their camps could bo easily distinguished. One regiment is located on the neck of land forming the eastern bank of Qu.intico creott. Another is encamped on tho southern slope of tho hill behind the centre battoiyon Shipping Point, and a largo force is stationed less than a mile from tho Upper Point battery, their camps covering tho side of the hill and extending down into the val ley. This is whore th? main body of their forco is concentrated. Apparently they could bo reached by shells from heavy guns on the Maryland side or from the flotilla. Other regiments were observed in camp more inland from the Potomac Id tho diroction of Occoquan. Seventy contrabands, including men, women and chil" dren, who came over to Maryland, n -ar Port Tobacco rom Virginia, after Colonel Graham's reconnolssanco at Mathlas Point, some weeks since, have left his regiment and been conveyed on a government steamer to Wash ington.

This looming they wero presented to the Secretary of tho In terior by Mr. I)o!i, Commissioner of Indian Affairs, and tlr aftermvn they had an int rvicw with tho President. They havo b'joi: sent t ) Washington by that portion of their respective tribes which is still holding out against the importunities and menaces of tho rebel agents to Induce them to Join tho rebellion. They are charged to c:> n; no carefully Into the condition of P' b'lc affairs, and to report to their friends at Uonin la regard to tho piirjioso of tin government , and its ability t i ro-entablish its authoi ily over the seceded fc'Utea.

The delegated represented that the withdrawal of our troops, and tho removal from t'10 '.Indian country of every evi deuce of federal authority, Lad tended to strengthen tho reprw^utatious of the r. lie'.- ?nts the United States were no longer ablo to afford '.him protection, ami thit tin only government left in their country was that ot the rebels, who premised to repay their allegiance by extending to them ft ' < Uely tho same I ivois hitherto enjoyed under the government of tho Unit< d Stutes, and threatened them with war if they should adhere to the old government. Under these cir c instances ninny of tboir braves were induced to tako part with the rebels; but tho majority of their nations arc anxious to maintain their acou.-tomod relations with tho United States. Thoy expre-a much gratification at tho result of tin ir investigations b"re and in tho loyal Mati b through which thoy have passed, and believe that their report, if sustained by a Union force, will Bring back all their people to ?n earnest co operation with tho government. The Indian delegnlcs wero OBtiecinlly pleated at their reception at the White Hou^e. To mor row thoy will make a tour of the camps and fortifications on the south side of tho Potomac, by which they will bo 8till more strongly impressed with tho power of the gov ernment.
