When the llnal draft of the proclamation was presented by the President to the Cabi net, it closed with the paragraph stating that the slaves it liberated would be received into the armed service of the United States. Mr Chase objected to the appearance of a docu meat of such momentous importance without oue word heyoud the dry phrases necessary to convoy its meaning: and finally proposed that there be added to the President’s draft the following sentence: “And upon this act, sincerely believed to be an act of justice, warranted by the Constitu tion, I invoke the considerate judgement of mankind and the gracious favor ol Almighty God.” Mr. Lincoln adopted the sentence as Mr. Cha->e wrote it, only intermingling alter the word “Constitution'’ the words,"upon milita ry necessity,” and iu that form the procla mation went to the world and history. The President originally resolved upon the policy of issuing “this proclamation in the summer of 18(32. As he expressed it himself, everything was going wrong; we seemed to have put forth our utmost efforts; and he really did not know what more to do, unless he did this. Accordingly, he prepared the preliminary proclamation, nearly iu the form iu which it subsequently appeared, called the C ibiuet together ami read it to them Mr. Montgomery Blair was startled. “If you issue that proclamation, Mr. President.” he exclaimed, “you will lose every-oue of the fall elections.” «*• ‘■unttiu uu wic uiuu IU1I1U, oaiu, X itj) prove of it, Mr. President, just as it stands.— 1 approve of it in principle, and I approve the policy of issuing it. 1 only object to the time. Send it out uow, on the heels of our late disasters, and it will be construed as the convulsive struggle of a drowning man. To give it proper weight, you should reserve it till after some victory.” The President assented to Mr. Seward's view, and it was withheld till the Fall, when it was issued almost precisely as originally prepared. The one to which Mr. Chase sup plied the concluding sentence was the final Proclamation, issued on the subsequent first of January.—|Cor. Cincinnati Gazette. This story that Mr. Chase supplied the con cluding sentence of the emancipation procla mation, has been contradicted by Mr. Lincoln himself. The Lamented Lovejoy.—The Chicago Times, though a bitter Copperhead, and a most unscrupulous partisan, lias the grace to speak thus reverently of Owen Lovejoy: Owen Lovejoy was an honest Abolitionist. He was a member of that party when it was au object of derision and haired to more than nine-tenths of the voters of the United States. Naturally benevolent and generous, his haired of Slavery was quickened by educatiou, and aroused by resentment in the murder of his brother, at Alton, iu 1S;J7, for proposing to establish there au Abolition newspaper. His sympathies with the real and Imaginary suf ferings of the slaves overcame all considera tions of danger resulting from the agitation of the Slavery question. However much we may condemn the teachings of the original Abolitionists, and however justly we may in fer that the present awiul calamities resting upon the nation are traceable to them, it is impossible not to respect the manly indepen dence and tlrmuess shown by them iu their struggle with an overwhelming public senti ment. The political friends and political oppo nents of Mr. Lovejoy will unite in mourning for him as an estimable gentleman in private Hie and au liouest one in public station. The bitterness of partisanship is rebuked over bis grave, and bis political toes have no wish to retaliate upon his memory the invective which lie so well knew how to employ against them. Democrats know how to respect men like him and Garrison and Phillips, while detesting their fanaticism. Hut as to those who have adopted their fanaticism as au engine of par ty, and are now as clamorous iu proclamation of it and obsequious iu obedience to it as but a few years, or a few months ago, they were veheuieut iu its condemnation, even the char itable judgement which the grave demands will not shield their memories from the hatred and contempt which should follow those who trade iu their country’s blood for personal ora tit. The True Value ol a Greenback Dollar. The popular mind is abused, to a great ex tent, with a lalse idea of the true value iu gold of a dollar of our present circulating medium. Many persons who have noticed g till qu >te 1 at, for instance, t>) psr ceut. pre mium, were of the opiuion, that their dollar greenback was wortli iu gold just as many cents lean the dollar. That this notion is erro neous is easily proven. A dollar gold piece, when wortli 00 per cent, more than a dollar Treasury note, is evidently wortli IGO-lOOlhs of the latter, which is worth lOO-UiOllis of the gold dollar, or 62 l-‘2c in gold. Consequently with oue dollar in Treasury paper, you can purchase 02 l-2c iu gold. The prool of this is, that 02 l-2c plus 00 per ceut. of itself, or i!7 l-2e, is equal to one dollar. We think this explanation will considerably enrich, in their estimation, many persons who think that, when gold i» at 00 per cent, premium, their dollar in Treasury currency is worth ouly 40c in the precious metal. The following tabic, showing the precise value of paper in gold, witlt the latter at various points of pre mium, may he of interest to many: AT TREASURY NOTES WORTH li0 .. 10 lie . 1-3 c !SS. 62 1-2 c I™*. 5-11 c 22 .. 12-10c A*).^ —.50 c Whkiik tiik Money gobs to. Burleigh, the New York correspondent of the Boston Journal,lias the following: “ Mrs. It. of this city, well known iu Boston as Miss C., who lias one of the most splendid establishments of New York, w ho is herself one of our elegant and accomplished ladies, gave, a short time since, a masquerade party, the like of which has not been seen on this continent—Moral decorations costing £1000— dresses made for this occasion of rare materi al and workmanship, and a display that was wonderful—hankers with buttons of diamonds, and jewels that would adorn a prince. More than all, the lady hostess had a tiara of gas jets, all in a blaze on lier head, ami all the adornments were in the same gorgeous style.” , * ' Ax Incrf.diblk Barbarity. The chiv alry ol the South has exhibited a fresh proof of their boasted devotion to woman. Not eoutent with giving her the precedence in the ball room and by the fireside, they would have her take the advance on the battle Held also. These brave Southrons rally valorously behind a woman's skirts. A telegram from St. Louis informs us that at the late fight at Paducah they put their helpless females for ward as tlie bulwark of defence against a storm of Federal bullets, aud with a sharp ness which even a Yankee would not have practised, availed themselves of a flag of truce to restore their shattered lines. In Southern parlance this may be chivalrous, but the world will unite in pronouncing such atrocity fiendish, and the annals of civilized warfare will he searched in vain for a parallel lor so barbarous an outrage upon woman.— We trust that for the honor of humanity the despatch will prove to be unfounded.—[Wash ington Chronicle.
