YVe are not one ot those tender-fooled Souther tier*, to object to the use of all the slaves that can bo found in the revolted States, for the purpose of carrying on the war, and putting down the rebellion. YVe are the ad vocate of the policy of arming, aud otherwise using the negroes, just as we arc the advocate ot using rebel horses, mules, and all other articles af property. From the time Gen. Butler set a gang of Virginia negroes to Work, who escaped from rebeldotn and took refuge in the Federal lines, until now, a dread ful howl has been kept up in the South. The same cry was raised against Gen. McClellan and Gen. Burnside, for doing the same thing, although the rebel army was drilling negroes at the lima, and using them by thousands to aid aud abet the cause of rebeUiou. This matter raises the question of interna tional law, and brings up the several prece dents that the Federal officers first complain ed of arc following. A synopsis of the doc trine was given by Maj. Gen. Edmond P. Gaines, gt Mew Orleans, in 1SJ8, a Southern man and a slave owner. Gen. Jessup had ^ captured many slaves in Florida, and had or dered them west of the Mississippi. At New Orleans the slaves were claimed by the own ers under legal process: but Gen. Gaines, commanding the military district, aud a man never tainted by abolitionism, refused to de liver them to the Sheriff, and appeared in court, making his own defense, the details of which were given at the time in the newspa pers North aud Sonth. YVe give the follow ing extract, from the reported defense of Gen. Gaines, and submit whether he did not regard negroes as contrabands of war— “He declared that these people'! men, women and children) were captured in war, and held as “prisoners of war.” That as commander of that military department or district, he held them subject only to the order of the National Executive, that he could recognize no uther power in time of war, or by the laws of war, as authorized to take prisoners from his pos session. He asserted that, in tame of war, all slaves were belligerents, as much as their masters. The slave men, said he, cultivate earth and sup ply provisions. The women cook the fbod.nurse the wounded and sick, and contribute to the maintenance of the war often mure than the same number of males. The slate children equally contribute whatever they are able to the support of the war. t Nor could he, as a military oflioer, know what a the laws of Florida were While engaged iu main taining tie Federal Government by force of arm-. In such case he could only be guided by the lawn of war, and whatever may be tbe laws of any State, they must yield to the safety of the Federal Government.” if the ietmussee conservative, or the bor der Suite copperhead, is anxious to see the defense of Gen. Gaines, alike able and conclu sive, i: may be found iu Douse Document, No. 22.1, of the second session of the twenty fifth Congress. 'fue General sent the slaves West, where they became free, and, although he was called to an account for It, he was sustained by the then Democratic Administration. Among the men iu Cougress who sustained him, from Tennessee, were Uugh Lawson White aud Felix Grundy, of the Senate, and John Dell aud James K. l’olk, of the Douse of Kepre seuialives. Gen. Gaines was also sustained by Senators and ltepresentatives from Virginia, North Carolina, Kentucky, Alabama,Georgia, Mississippi, Arkansas aud Louisiana. These Southern Congressmen sustaining Gen Gaines were uot then Abolitionists — first, because the reign of Secesh had not then set in; and next, because Lincoln was not then President, but S'an Dureu was, and he was “a Northern man w ith Southern principles.” It was then not only right to set negro slaves to work and to fighting iu time of war, but it was marvel ously proper to send them west of the Missis sippi aud liberate them for tbeir gallant ser | Tices. In 1*38 Gen. Zachary Taylor, the father in-law of Jell' Davis, and a Southern slave B holder, well kuowu to the country and the ar my, captured a number of negro slaves, who turned out to be fugitives from tbeir lawful owners. Citizens of Florida prepared to prove themselves to be their lawful owners, rallied to the camp of General Tay lor and demanded a surrender of their property. The General replied, “I have no pAsoners hut prisoners of war.” The owners desired to examine them ; but the veteran General, in the true spirit ol a modern Lincolnite, told them that no man should examine his prisoners for any such purpose, and he ordered them, in hot baste, to leave bis encampment. Complaint was made to President Van Duren, and to bis Cab inet, and Geu. Taylor was sustained by the unanimous vote thereof, while the slaves were sent West and Jiberated, b Iu l&M Gen. Jessup wanted men to act as I spies and guides in his army, and he engaged some fugitive slaves, stipulating that if they served the Government laithtully he would secure tbeir freedom. The negroes fulfilled their engagement to the letter: they were sent West and liberated, and Van Dureu'a Democratic Cabinet, including its Southern members, who controlled it, approved the emancipation contract. Not only so, but the ministration, and Gen. Jessup's contract was again Indorsed, the Southern members of the Cabinet standing up for this I/.ncoln measure. Tyler has since been elected to the reliel Con gress at Richmond, and the measure has thus been remotely indorsed by the Conlederaey. It is no excuse to say uow that the United State* Government was then fighting against tbe Florida ludians—the same Government is now fighting against the Srpog» of the Con federacy, a more cruel and savage set than were tbe Florida Indians. But we come upon Tennessee conservatives, ♦ with a knock down argument, taken from the acts and arguments of Major General Andrew Jackson, when our government was fighting that of Great Britain. In the month of De cember, 1814, Gen. Jackson seized upon alarge number of slaves at and around New Orleans, actually lu tbe possession of their lawful own ers, aud kept them at hard labor, erecting de * fense-, behind which his troops won the victo ry ol the 8U1 of Jauuary, lhl j. The owners remonstrated, denounced Jackaou as a usurp er, and they would have called him “a d—-J old Ltncolnit#,” but this opprobrious epithet was not then in vogue. Jackson, who was rather a mau of his own head than otherwise, disregarded their remonstrances—paid no sort of attention to their abase—kept many of the slaves at work, others In arras and on the field of battle, uulil many of them were killed by the enemy’s shots. The case went befors President Madison and his able Cabiuet, in the form of a complaint. Jackson was sus tained by them, aud by Congress afterward and when the owners applied for pay for theii slaves afterward, Congress refased them compensation, and that, too, by Souther, votes. But that wss before our statesmen ii tbe South were afflicted with nigger on th< brain! These slave owners were the friend of the Federal Government, and were thu treated because it was done in tbe exercise o the war power, a* a military necessity, and b; a military chieftain, whose motto was then and to the day of his death—“The Fkdebai Uniox—it ucst be prehkkvkii.” And i the American generals under President Lin coin, now in command of our armies, thi fait to seise upon and use to the beat adva tage the slaves of all rebel citisem, they w r prove to be much more lenient and lese of ah litionhu than our great Souther#’ geueri j have been,among whom we may claas Jacksc 0 Gaiuea, Taylor and Jessup. f The history of our couutry demonatrat that Wares, as well as free persona of color, the old slaveboldiug States, were taken lu 6 the Revolutionary army by authority of tl s Slates, or Colonits themselves. During tl last war with England, the great State of Ne York had a regimeut of colored men In tl service. And it Is a part of tbe history of tl ' country that the greater portion of Comm 1 dore Terry’s victorious crew oo Lake Eri • were as black as negroes get to be In Ame ica. ! In 1778, as cited In Bartlett's Index to tl Laws of Rhode IslaDd, an act was pasted “at thoriziug the enlistment of slaves In the Cot tineut.il Battalions.” They were declere | frtt by the act, upon the condition that the would enlist, and the army record shows thi I many of them served with fidelity during th war. In 1781, while George Clinton was the Got ernor pf New York, an act was passed for t.h purpose ol raising some regiments, who wer to be paid off in “ bounty lands unapproprii ted," and from that law we take the followin very interesting section: "Section 6. Beit enacted, that any person who shall deliver one or mors of his or bar abl bodied male slaves to any warrant offioer a aforesaid, to serve in either of the said regi tnents or independent corps, and prod JR a oer tificate thereof, signed by any person author ized to muster and reoeive the men to be raise< by virtue of this act, and produce such oertifi cate to the Surveyor-General, shall, for ever; male slave so entered and mustered as afore said, he entitled to the location and grant of on right in manner at in and by this act directed and shall be and hereby is discharged from any future maintenance of such slave, any las to the oontrary notwithstanding. And such slave so entered as aforesaid, who shall serve foi three years or until regularly discharged, etml immediately after such tervioe or discharge, b* and is hereby declared to be a free man of thii State. ’ ’ At early at 1777, it Wat the practice of lh< alavct of Virginia to desert from their own era, in order that they might enlist at soldiers sud thereby secure tbelr freedom. In 1783 before the news of the Treaty of Peace in Paris had reached this country, the Legisla ture ol Virginia, mindful of the conduct ol the slaves who had rendered valuable eer vlcea in the army, passed the following pre amble and act in relation to them: “Whereas it has been represented to the pres ent General Assembly that during the couret ol the war many persons in this State have caused their slaves to enlist in certain regiments or corps raised within Ihe same, having tendered such slaves to the officers appointed to recruit forces within the State, as substitutes for free persons whose lot or duty it was to serve in such regiments or corps, at the same time represent ing to such recruiting offiotr that the slaves so enlisted by their direction and concurrence were freemen: and it appearing further to the As sembly thst on the expiration of the term of en listment of such slaves the former owners have attempted again to force them to return to a stale of servitude, contrary to the principles of justice anil to their own solemn promise: “3. And wheress, it appears just and reason able thst sll persons enlisted aforesaid, who have faithfully served according to the terms of their enlistment, and have thereby, of course, centributed toward the eetablishment of Ameri can liberty and independence, should enjoy the blessings of freedom as a reward lor their toils aud labors: “Be it therefore enacted that each and every slave who, by the appointment and direction of his owner, hath enlisted in any regiment or corps raised within this 8tate, either on oonti iien alor .Slate establishment, and hath been rtceived as a substitute for any free person whose duty or lot it was to serve faithfully dur ing the term of snch enlistment, or hath been discharge! from such service by tone officer duly authorised to grant such discharge, shall, from and after the passage of this act, be fully and completely emancipated, and shall be held itnd deemed free in as fall and ample a manner as if each and every one of them were specially name! in this act; and the Attorney-General for (be Coiuuiou a cal in Is beieliy ivquiieu vu ooui menoe an action in forma pauptrit in behalf f any of Ihe persons above described who thsll, after the passing of this act, be detained in ser tude by any person whatsoever, and if upon such prosecution it shall appear that the pauper is entitled to his freedom in consequence of this act, a jury shall be empanneled to assess the damages for his detention.” huactmenu by the Legislature of South Carolina upon thU subject were to the same effect, aud the records at Columbia will show the fact in bold relief. It was proposed lu her Legislature to make up her quota of troops from her slave population. And Col. Lawrcus, of South Carolina, la eg titled to tha credit of the movement, for be urged upon Congress, aud upou the State Legislature, with eloquence and great force, the necessity and advantage of arming the slaves, and mak ing them soldiers. And he carried the meas ure. President Madison, daring bis term of office, and iu the war of 1812, proposed raising black regiments, and giving the slaves who might consent to serve, their freedom. It may be urged as au apology for this, that the British were threatening the capital at Washington, aud did run the President out. Well, the Sepoy t of the South are threatening the over throw of the entire government, capital aDd all. But Mr. Madison, ins work known as the Federalist, with the sagacity of a statesman and the foresight of a prophet, looked for ward to this rebellion, and pointed it out as a lime when the slaves would be of great im portance : “I takenu notioe," said he, “ofan unhappy species of population abounding in some of the States, who, duiing the calm of regular govern ment, are sunk below the level of men, butwhd, in the tempestuous scenes of civil violence, may emerge into the human character and /ire a tuperiorily qf ttrtngth to any party trtik which thty may anociatt themulvn.” In conclusion, we hope the length of this article will -not deter reflecting men from lu careful perusal. We have called up these numerous startling facU and ancient records, that the peopla may see both sides of this great question, and to show that the people of the South, in open rebellion, have no right to complain if the United Slates Government shall even arm and uniform every able-bodied slave In the South, muster them into service, and use them to put down the most wicked and unauthorized of all rebellions.

Subscriptions to these Bonds are re ceived in United States notes of Rational Banks — TheyareTo ok rbdkemkd in coir, at the pleas ure of the Government, at any period not let* than ten nor more than forty year» from their date, and until their redemption five per cent interest will be paid ie coin, ou Bonds of not over one hundred dollars annually, and on all other bonds se mi-annually. ihe interest is payable on the first day of Mareh and September in each year. The semi annual Cou pons are payable at those dates, and the annual Coupons on the 60 and 100 dollar bonds are payable on tbe first of March. Subscribers will receive either Registered or Cou pon bonds, as they may paafer. Registered Bonds are recorded on the books of tbe U. 8. Treasurer, and can bo Iranferred only at tbe owner's order.— Coupon Bonds are payable to bearer, and are more oonvenient for commercial use. Registered Bonds will be issued of the denomina tions of Fifty Dollars ($60). One Hundred Dollars (•ISO), Five Hundred Dollars (600), One Thousand Dollars ($1,003),Five Thousand Dollars ($6,000), and Ten Thousand Dollars ($10,000); and Coupon Bonds ol the denominations of Fifty Dollars ($60), One Hundred Dollars ($10$), Five Hundred Dollars ($600), and One Thousand Dollars ($1,000). Subscribers to this loan will have the option of having their bonds draw intorcst from March 1st, by paying tLe accrued interest incoiu-<or in United States notes, or the notes of Rational Banks, adding fltty per cent, for premium,) or receive them draw ing interest from the date of subscription and Re posit. As these Bonds are exempt from Mnulcipal or 8tate taxation, their value is Increased from one to three per cent par annum, according to the rate of tax levies in various parts of the country. At the present rate of premium on gold they pay over eight per cent, interest in currency, and are of equal convenience as a permanent or temporary in vestment. It is be'ieved that no securities offer so great in ducements to lenders as the various descriptions of U. 8. Bonds. In all other forms of indebtedness, ihe faith or ability of private parties or stock com panies or separate communities only is pledged for payment, while for the debtsoi the United States the whole property of the country is holden to secure the payment or both principal and ioterest in coin. fhe Bonds may be subscribed for in sums from 160 up to any magnitude, on the same terms, and tre thus made available to the smallest lender and he largest capitalist. They can be converted into noney at any moment, and the holder will have the leuetit of the interest. The fact that all duties on imports are payable in pec:ctarnishes a fund for like payment of interest tn all Government bonds Isrgily la excess of the rants of the treasury for this purpose.
