Hi* PrnaiAmt tn.i1?v transmittal^ t.n fnnorpsa Ike following message:? 1 Fellow Citizens of the Senate and House of Representatives:? 1 recommend the adoption of a joint resolution 1>J your honorable bodies which shall be substantially as follows:? Resolved, That the United States ought to cooperate with any State which n:ay adopt a gradual abolishment of slavery, giving to such State pecuniary aid, to be used by such State in its discretion to compensate for the inconveniences, public And private, produced by such change of system. If the proposition contained in the resolution a does not fleet the approval of Congress and the E country, there is the end; hut if it does command e nch approval, I deem it of importance that the c States and people immediately interested should 1 be at once distinctly notified of the fact, so that , tbey may begin to consider whether to accept or reject it. The federal government would find its ( highest interest in such a measure, as one of the a most efficient means of self-preservation. c The leaders of the existing insurrection entertain the hope that the government will, ultimately, be forced to.acknowledge the independence of ome part of the disaffected region, and that all the slave States north of 6nch parts will then say, "The Un.on, for which we have struggled, being Already gone, we now choose to go with the South' era section." To deprive them of this hope sub- v atantially ends-the rebellion, and the initiation of 0 emancipation completely deprives them of it. As ? to all the States initiating it, the point is not that / all the Slates tolerating slavery wonld very soon, I tf at all, initiate emancipation, bnt that, while the ? offer is equally made to all, the more goithern shall, by ruch initiation, make it certain to the v nore sonthcrn that in no event win the foimor f ver join the latter in tlicir proposed confederacy. I say "initiation" because, in my Judgment, gradual and not sudden emancipation is better for 1 alL r i In the mere finnrcial or pecuniary view, any f Bomber of Congress, with the census tables | tad the Treasury reports before him, c can readily cee for himself how very soon the 1 current expenditures of the war would purchase, 1 at a fair valuation, all the slaves in any named ^ Elate. Such a proposition on the part of the gene- 1 fal government sets up no claim of a right by j federal authority tn inforfrrn with tl.iyrry within BUtc limits, referring, us it does, the absolute cou- ' Irol of the subject in each case to the Stale and Ha people immediately interested. It is proposed as a matter of perfectly free choice with them. In the annua! message last December I thought fit to ay:?" The Union rout be preserved, and hence all indispensable means mm t be employed." I aid this not hastily, but deliberately. War 1 as been and continues to be an indispensable means to this end. A practlcul rcacknowlcdgment of the national authority would render Ihc war unnecessary, ard it would at once ccsse. If, however, resistance continues, the war must also continue, and it is impossible to foresee all the incidents which may attend and all the ruin which nay follow it. Such as may seem indispensable < or may obviously promiso great ethcicney towards ending the struggle must and will eoinc. The proposition now made, though an offer only, I hope it may bo esteemed ..? offence to ask whether the poenniaty c deration tendered would not be of more value td tho ? ittl and private persons concerned than era tho institution and proper*/ "n it, in the present aspect of affairs? While it is true that the adop' n of tho proposed resolution would be merely initiatory, and not within itself a practical measure, it is recommended in the hope that it would soon lead to important results. In full view of my great responsibility to my God and to my country, I earnestly beg the attention of Congress and the people to tho subject. A DTI A UAH LINCOLN. GENERAL NEWS.

LFFAI118 ON THE LOWER POTOMAC?INCREASE OF TIIE REBEL FOUCB NEAR AQUIA CREEK?BRISK CANNONADING ON BOTH SIDES. The gunboat:; .Satellite, Acting Master Foster, and Island Jellc, Acting Master Harris, discovered on Wednesday a lumber of rebel cavalry near Aquia Cteck, and compllncntcd ibcm with a lew shell, when the robeis precipiatc'y semnpered away, and tno steamers returned to heir anchorage. A brisk fire was opened this morn lag, at about three I'clcck, by the lower llotilla, causing groat alarm, at least unoiig the rebels. The long roll was boaton, coinmcncug at Aquia Creek, and extending along up the river as ar a3 Evansport. Tho call of the roll extended through i greater number of camps thau at any time before. The i imp flies within a few days past have materially inireased, showing a considerable augmentation of the sbel forces in this vicinity. 'iho tebcls opened tire upon the Budd's Forry battery it eleven o'clock this morning. About twenty or thirty ihots were fiscd, without doing any dnmxge. The steamer Yankee to day went in within half a mile >f the Yigiuia shore, and shelled a uew battery in pro. ess of erect ion in the rear of the position of their old >i?ttery at Freestone Toict The rebels wore fcrced to :vac'?atc the premises. lib TRICUNK'B C1UT2CI8M ON GENERAL BANKS* MOVEMENT. The assertion of the TrUun, that the forward movement if General Ban'is" column over the Upper Potomac was l fiasco, because thu canal boats were too large for the anal, ts altogether unwarranted by the facts. In the list place, tlic heats were tho.se which had been for n ong time uruifon the canal; but some of the repairs msliiy mode to the aide walls of the Icclts destroyed by be rebels were unsubstantial, and the walls bad bulged o such an extent as to obstruct the passage of the toots. This, however, did not in any way interfere rith the movements of General Banks' column. It ins not Intended to rely upon the canal boats, tut to use thorn as accessories in case Of l:i insufficiency of the pontoon bridge, which rag found ado-piate to all purposes Of the crossing f all tho troops and wagons and teams; nur wan there ven tho nights:-1 fatiure in the expedition of Genera1 laiiks, except in the expectation of meeting theonemy. ill that was intoi.dcd to be done immediately was uccomilitbed with the most satisfactory success.
